• Good Morning Sunday ~ Wait, What? Freebies and Other Things

    Yes, I know… you’re getting this a day early, but there are things that are time-sensitive so I figured I’d live a little dangerously and send this out Sunday instead of Monday. LOL First things first…  FREE BOOKS.  Yes, free books. There’s a whole stack, and you can download them, easy peasy.   Awesome books from amazing authors of LGBTQIA+ romance!! Act quickly though because this fab deal is only good for two days, January 19 and 20! All you need to do is to click on this link to ProlificWorks (it used to be called Instafreebie) and check out the amazing authors and their books they’re giving away Lucky –…

  • Good Morning Monday! And the struggle is real.

    This is going to come off as sounding whiney… but writing is hard. LOL  As Hemingway once said, “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” And man, he wasn’t wrong. But, here’s the thing. Writing is different for every single author. Every author has strengths and weaknesses in their craft, parts they love, parts they loathe. We each have our Achilles heel, and do you wanna know what mine is? Me. My own brain tries to sabotage me every damn time. I get to the 75% marker of a manuscript and my brain says “OMG THIS IS THE BIGGEST PILE OF…

  • Good Morning Monday! *sings* And a Happy New Year!

    Welcome to 2018! Before we look forward, let’s take a quick look back at the year that was 2017. It was a busy, busy year, that was for certain. To highlight the positives, there was: Eight new releases Four re-releases Ten translation releases Eight audio book releases No wonder I was busy! LOL   I also had a trip to the US for GRL which was an absolute highlight for me. I also dealt with/am still dealing with some health issues but Australia legalised marriage equality, so I’m considering 2017 a win! 🙂 Also, I have a range of books voted for Best of 2017 on several sites, Best Cover for 2017,…

  • Good Morning Monday!

    My second Good Morning Monday post in a row!  Look at me go! LOL So, this last week as been fairly productive. My word count on Spencer 3 is now at 38K, and I’m thinking there will be approx 10K to go. I have also done first round edits on Spencer 2, tweaked a few things in Spencer 1 before getting ARCs ready and formatting. I’ve also pre-read, proof-read and read for fun! 🙂 I also have some more info on my 2016 writing/release schedule. Please bear in mind this can, and probably will, change. Sometimes things outside our realm of control happen, and sometimes other characters decide their story…

  • The Fact and the Fiction

    ** SPOILERS AHEAD** If you don’t want spoilers for Cronin’s Key, please don’t read 🙂 Cronin’s Key has been out for a little while now and I wanted to shed some light on research; the fact and the fiction. As all writers know (or at least they should) research is a huge part of any story. And out of all my books (all 20 of them), I think I have done more research for Cronin’s Key than any other. Cronin’s Key is a paranormal, supernatural, fantasy, sci-fi, action romance. So, by rights I could have ignored all fact and just gone with fiction. I could have taken creative license and…

  • My Village

    I don’t often post about the technicalities behind writing. I am not a master of my craft, I don’t pretend to know one grammatical rule from another, nor do I have profound, life-changing advice to give aspiring authors. But the one truth I have taken from writing, is that there is very little “self” in self-publishing. It takes a village. I’m writing this on the tail end of a book release. Red Dirt Heart 4 came out last week, and has been a true success. In the first 48 hours of release, it was #1 on Amazon (gay romance) in SIX different countries. At once. That’s a HUGE feat, and…
