All the infoz~

July 12, 2015

Well, my friends, it had been far too long since I'd taken care of proper site updates beyond, you know, adding new books as they become available. So I've finally gotten off my butt and updated the FAQ section to reflect a ton of stuff going on around here lately. I had a down year due to that whole 'discs poking into my spinal cord' issue last year (they still are, but yay physical therapy, I can function!), and all my hard work to get back on top this year is yielding a sudden explosion of new projects coming to light. There's also a new Coming Soon page, for anyone who wonders what's next or what I'm working on because reasons. 

A bunch of other little things happened around here too, but the most immediately relevant is prrrrrrobably that my next release for Loose Id, Back to the Sky, got its own page. Back to the Sky is part of this weird little project of mine about Elementals, and if you want some basic info on that, the series page is here

TL;DR version: The Elementals books are unrelated, except thematically. There will be one for each of the four basic elements. Possibly I will also do the fifth, but I'mmmmm not sure about that.

And here's the love interest for the new one, as a tease. His name is Geordie Finsen and he may or may not be able to make it rain... as in literally. He is also a brick shithouse.

And because it's been a FAQ: You will see Adam and Leith again, yes. I'm working on a little thing. ♥

Come get your Moondrop!

Happy long weekend, Americans! Be safe this Independence Day, okay? To the rest of you, happy regular weekend to you, too. I'm off to celebrate with the loud family (see also: Nobody's Hero), so that should be fun.

If you're looking for something to read this weekend, I've got something for you: Moondrop--my stand-alone freebie about a lonely English teacher and a tattooed dragon shifter--is free to download, now! Thanks to the Goodreads MM Romance group for their editorial and production work on this one. It came out quite pretty in all formats. Glad I found the right art for the cover, too.

Get your copy here. Just scroll down to the bottom and bam. It's yours. I'll put it on Smashwords once I come home from the weekend, too, but the MM Romance group's site is super easy to use and safe.

Also, just as a reminder, there are a lot of other freebies on the free reads page.

Adventures in co-writing, starring Carlin Grant and me! We're working on a book about--omg what--superheroes! Writing a scene where they pull off a dirt road and park behind a dilapidated old barn for a quickie, this was our commentary--with tiny (first draft and therefore wholly unedited!) NSFW snippets for color. Meet Beau and Saktivel, dirty south super-endurance trans boy and citified super-speed desi boy. They're vigilante buddies who might be accidentally boyfriends kinda? Whooooops they slipped and totally did it. Over and over and over...

As soon as [Vel's] orgasm finished, Beau pulled off, before oversensitivity could set in. Something weird and warm curled up inside Vel’s belly as he leaned, breathless, against the car door and let Beau straighten him out after so expertly undoing him. He carefully pulled up Vel’s shorts, tucking him gently before fixing his pants. When Beau got off his knees, he wrapped Vel in his arm while his other hand cupped his cheek, and kissed him, soft and sweet. Vel kissed back, eyes shut, and melted into Beau, clinging.

Carlin Grant:
2:00 PM
But he's not in love with you, Vel
at all
there are no feelings except being buddies here

Katey Hawthorne:
2:00 PM
just buddies tenderly blowing buddies on the side of the road
as you do

Vel smirked and pressed his lips to Beau’s pink-flushed ear. “Whatever you want, sweetness.” He was familiar enough with Beau’s body now to tell just by feeling it, that perfect level of hot, wet, swollen, and pulsing that meant he could push Beau over the edge or pull him back and make him work his way back up again. 
Seeing as they were on their way somewhere, and seeing as he was almost as desperate to feel Beau come as Beau was himself, brat retaliation could wait. Vel turned up the intensity on the pulse and vibration, sliding his hand back to slick it again then up and around, over and over. “Give it to to me,” he mumbled, then bit at Beau’s ear, kissed down his neck as he worked. “I want it. I want you.”

Katey Hawthorne:
3:13 PM
Nope no feelings here either, just one bro telling the other bro how much he wants him to come undone in his hands on the side of a road that's all.

Carlin Grant:
3:18 PM

So yeah, for anyone who ever wondered what it's like to co-write? It's like this.

PS if you don't know Carlin, you will soon. Their first novel is coming from Less Than Three Press as part of the Solitary Travelers collection I was talking about last week. Want to hear a sneak peek from our soundtrack? Check out their blog from today for some bluegrass Daft Punk action.
