Loose Id News and What's Next (Hint: Kanaan & Tilney!)

Some of you will have heard by now, but in case anyone hasn't, my publisher for six and a half years now, Loose Id, will be closing its doors in 2018. It's been a long and exciting journey for me with them, and I'm super grateful for them giving me my start and my dream editor, Raven McKnight. 

In mid-May, all of my books with them will become unavailable, but not for long. Some will be re-homed and others will be re-released by me, but nothing will disappear forever. That said, nearly every single title of mine is on sale right now at the LI site. I specifically recommend picking up a copy of Kanaan & Tilney: The Case of the Arms Dealers because...

On December 26th, the second Kanaan & Tilney Investigation is coming! Click through for more info, but check out that cover by Dar Albert! Wooo ♥ Doesn't Lowell look PERFECTLY broody?

Witchy Boys 2!

Cover by Natasha Snow Designs

The follow-up to last year's Witchy Boys is here! Witchy Boys 2 contains two shorts, one about a whole new couple of guys and one that continues the story of Thackeray (with bonus demon, Seir!) and Matt from last year. In case you don't remember them...

Thackeray and Matt by Panda Capuccino

'Tis the season for spooky, sexy stories. Welcome to the second installment of Witchy Boys, containing two more novelettes about men with magic.  
Bourbon Barrel Blues 
City boy and Post reporter Alex Sanchez is looking for the next hot story when he stumbles across word of Kentucky's Bourbon Barrel Witch. After a few bribes and a long trek through the woods, he finds his quarry, but Murph is not the witch he was expecting. 
Young, fine, and dreaming of leading his brand of Appalachian witchcraft into the light, Murph agrees to let Alex write about him. assuming Alex can win his trust. With some magical homebrew for help, they make good progress both in and out of bed. But Alex isn't even sure he believes in magic, and they soon discover that bringing this story to the people might be more dangerous than they expected. 
Tattoo You 
A continuation of Matt and Thackeray's story from "Pr├Žsidium", "Tattoo You" picks up a year later. Thackeray is still hunting evil with the help of his demonic haunting, Seir—but now they have Matt's witchery to help them as well. The work is getting easier, but Matt and Thackeray's relationship is stunted by Seir's demon voyeurism. 
A call for help comes from a well-known alchemist—the one who gave Thackeray his protective tattoo. The hunters race to Louisiana to help, but Seir's had about all he can take of this intolerable situation. Thack has the nagging feeling Matt might have, too. He'll have to navigate a demonic infestation and a relationship minefield to keep the man he loves, tonight.

Oh, and don't forget, the original Witchy Boys is still available for zero dollars at instafreebie :D

Important Fundraiser and a Quick Update

For anyone who hasn't heard, the wonderful B.A. Tortuga could use our help right now. B.A. and her wife Julia are pioneers in the queer romance community and two of the most welcoming and supportive people I've met since I started this wild ride. If you can, please consider donating. If you can't, please signal boost the campaign Kiernan Kelly set up for B.A. right here.

Things around my way are good, just completely ridiculous because we're fostering puppies. Yes, you read that right. (If you're in the Western/Central/Southern Ohio area, check out MVPC okay. :D) But I'll have plenty going on come October as usual, so stay tuned for more! I just wanted to get in a quick signal boost and update. Love! (also, YAY, OCTOBER!)

Winners! And Pets!

Thanks so much for everyone who dropped in for the Superpowered Love Reading Tour. It was a bit of an experiment--including the first use of my webcam for anything not D&D related. The winners have been randomly selected and notified, and hopefully their shirts will come quickly so I can send their prize boxes off to them soon.

If you watched any of the goofy vids, you might've noticed my menagerie of pets showed up a lot. They made it difficult to get readings done, to say the least. Not that I minded lol. So here, have some outtakes:

There's more post-Takedown release fun coming up next month, too! But in the meantime, have a great Canada Day and Independence Day, my North American friends.
