Release Day!

Again!

I know, I know. I just had a book release, but these things sometimes happen. Out today, Lost Souls Found! Book 2 in the Requiem Inc series.

Dying is all in a day’s work. Love is more dangerous.

Ghostwalker Sam Jones has been half in love with Michael King since he started working at Requiem Inc. But Michael is his boss and a Guardian, to boot. Sam thinks they could make it work anyway, but Michael uses his position and his age to keep Sam at arm’s length.

When Sam continues to volunteer for the most dangerous cases, Michael has to intervene. He tells himself he’s just doing his job, but he’s always seen Sam as more than another operative, and he can’t bear the thought of not taking his chance. The connection between them has been strong from the beginning, and Michael’s telepathy adds unexpected depth and an edge to their new romance, but working together while they try to build their relationship might be the hardest part of their job if they don’t make some sacrifices.

Release Day!

I’m having to work a crap ton of overtime, but that doesn’t stop the excitement of release day!

Beholden is out now!

Julian Thomas made the unpopular decision to become Beholden and focus his magic only on scrying. Because of it, he’s the best at his job and the top scryer for the Department of Extranormal and Magical Affairs. Which why Investigations Agent Wes Caldwell goes right to Julian for help locating a missing person.

When Wes needs to use his magic to boost Julian’s, they find a magical resonance between them that quickly leads to more. Julian doesn’t want to move too fast, but Wes knows Julian is it for him. He’s fine with waiting, as long as Julian stays close as they work through it.

But then Julian falls ill, and it’s clear there’s a magical reason. Wes will stop at nothing to find out what’s plaguing Julian, and when they realize just how deep the plot goes, they have more questions than answers. Magic is increasing in the world, and no one can figure out why. Julian and Wes have found love, but will it be enough to get them through what’s to come?

Get Your Updates Here!

Okay so it’s been awhile! And part of that is due to the crazy insane past couple of weeks I’ve had. So! I’m here to give you the low down on what’s been happening with me.

So first things first: the day job has gone nuts. I won’t go into all the details, but there’s a new system that doesn’t work right and it’s been a hot mess from the beginning. The upside to that is I’m getting paid overtime, but the downside is that I have to actually work the overtime and that leaves my poor brain a mush pile. It’s why there was no Flash Fic last week and why there won’t be one this week either. I’m hoping I’ll be back on track next week and speaking of…

Usually, my flash fics feature the MCs from my new releases, but see, here’s the thing. Both my releases this upcoming week–Beholden is out on Saturday the 14th and Lost Souls Found is out Tuesday the 17th–are part of a series. Separate series, but still. So Flash Fics don’t really work with them, especially Beholden. But Asher and Kyle aren’t quite done yet, I’m thinking they have two more episodes in them, so hopefully next Friday (the 20th) I’ll bring you the next installment.

So of course, there are releases! Beholden is out in just three days, and you can get it early here at JMS if you’d like. Come Saturday, it’ll be in the usual places and I’ll post links then. And then on Tuesday the 17th Lost Souls Found is out, and that one you can get here at DSP. Again, more links when they are live.  I’m super excited about both of these, and there’s at least one more book in both series, and probably 2, but I don’t want to say too much at this point. But yeah, these books have been a labor of love, and I’m hoping you’ll get a chance to pick them up.

On the writing front there’s other news! Nell and I have been making huge progress on the first book in our first series (oh there are plans!) though it’s temporarily stalled because of my evil day job. The next chapter is mine to write, and I’m really really hoping I’ll get it done this weekend. (If I don’t have to work extra hours that is). The boys are calling to me, especially because of what happens in the next chapter, and boy do I want to let them have their fun.

On the solo front, I’m getting started on a story for a sub call that I’m super excited about that has a deadline. So I’m hoping to make progress on that soon as well. It’s the first one on my rough schedule to write over the rest of the year and if all goes according to plan, it’ll be out at the beginning of next year

I’ve been letting myself get overwhelmed by stuff lately, and I think it’s just the nature of what all has been going on, so I’m focusing on one thing at time. Or two, as the case may be. Two releases, two WIPs. But I’m trying, at the moment, not to think too far ahead. It’s working for now, and I expect it to yield some great words!

So that’s what’s going on with me at the moment. Thanks for sticking with me. And keep your eyes peeled in the coming days for lots of fun guest posts!

The Announcement

So I have some super exciting news!

Through a twist of fate, a little luck, and long hours of amazing discussion, Nell Iris and I have decided to write together!

What started as a simple question quickly snowballed. It’s amazing when you find a kindred spirit half way around the world. We clicked, right from the start, and we went from talking about writing a book together to planning a series. Nell and I played off each other so easily that the ideas just flowed; we were in sync from the start. We’re thrilled with the direction our idea has gone and we can’t wait to bring it to you. We’re sure you’re going to love our boys as much as we do.

I’m not going to say too much yet. We’re just getting started. But we have the first book planned, and ideas for the rest of the series. We’ve got some really awesome characters and a fun premise. Incorporating some of our favorite tropes, we’ve built a little world. And we know we’re going to have a blast playing in it.

Did I mention I’m excited? 😀

Look for news in the coming months as we get going!

Something Different

Starting this week, I’m going to do a something a little bit different with Flash Fic Friday.

You may have noticed they’ve been absent for, well, pretty much the whole year. I’ve been having a bit of writer’s block in general, and I’ve been having trouble working through it. There’s plenty of stuff I need to write, stuff I want to write, but I haven’t been able to get my brain to cooperate much. So! I’ve decided to help that along, I’m going to start a serial story here on the blog. It’ll run for, probably, 8 weeks (or so) and tell an entire story.

I’ve finally got my brain working enough for this. Plus, I think it’ll be a fun exercise, as once a post is published, I won’t be able to change what I’ve written. (Okay, technically I can, but I won’t.) So if I write myself into a corner, I’ll have to write my way out again.

Tune in tomorrow for the first installment!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

A day devoted to celebrating love. While I think that should happen every day, it’s nice to have a special occasion to celebrate it too. Whether you’re doing so with your significant other(s) or someone new or a book and a glass of wine, I hope you have a wonderful day.

Dreamspinner Press and JMS are both having 30% off sales! Go grab a new book (or several), take advantage of the sale, and find some fictional people to fall in love with!

And may I remind you that I have a Valentine’s Day story? Sean and Hunter fall in love in Love at Roades End.

Sean Newvine is looking forward to his weekend at Roades End Inn so he can review his stay there for inclusion on his travel website. What he never expects is for the owner, Hunter Roades, to capture his attention from the very start.

The only problem is Hunter thinks Sean’s been sent by his brother on a blind date so that Hunter doesn’t have to spend Valentine’s Day alone. Once the awkward misunderstanding is resolved, Sean is charmed by Hunter’s formality and hospitality. And when they have a chance to really talk, sparks fly.

A passion-filled night has them both wanting more, but Hunter pulls away knowing Sean doesn’t live in town and the distance might be more than they can overcome. Sean and Hunter must figure out if they can make it work for longer than one night, or if their chance at love will end at Roades End Inn before it can begin.

Alex and Matt

If you’d like the flash fics featuring Alex and Matt from Hero Worship in a downloadable file, I have now put it together! The stories are all the same (with typo corrections) as the ones featured here on the blog. But now they are all together, with a cover, that you can get in any format you wish. Since I’m only able to put up PDFs on this site, that’s available on the Freebies page in the Books tab at the top. But if you’d prefer mobi or ePub, just drop me a note and I will happily email that to you.

I’ve said before that Alex and Matt are two of my favorite guys, and I’ve loved revisiting them. And now you can have their complete journey at your fingertips.
