The Case of the Man Eater is ON SALE!

December 26, 2017

Happy Holidays, everyone! Here's to a much better 2018, amiright? Now to figure out what I'm doing for New Years... something auspicious. Very auspicious. 

For now, though, what could be more fun than a new book? Come and get it!

Cover by Dar Albert
Wolf-Beast and ex-cop Lowell Kanaan recently brought his boyfriend, Elementalist and mystery author John Tilney, into the PI business with him. They've been solving cases for Boston's varied praeternatural communities ever since. So when a young Terran feels that the brutal murder of his Beast boyfriend isn't being treated seriously enough by the police, he brings the case to Kanaan & Tilney for a second opinion.

Similarly defiled corpses pop up around Boston as they race to find the killer. All the victims are packless Beasts, like Lowell, and the vicious nature of the killings stir up old prejudices in the praeternatural community, Beast and otherwise. Throw a personal vendetta and some ugly family history for Lowell in the mix, and the trails are as muddy as ever. 

This case will test Kanaan & Tilney's strength, both as a PI team and a couple. It'll take all they have to keep each other alive—and stop a serial killer.

Come and get it at Loose Id--to take advantage of their epic, yearly "What I really wanted for Christmas" sale for the last time--or these awesome retailers.

Join us for the blog tour and enter to win a Kanaan & Tilney investigations prize pack!

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

December 4, 2017

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!

October 17, 2017

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 "Præsidium", "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

September 28, 2017

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!

June 30, 2017

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.

It won't be long now until The Takedown hits the virtual shelves! June 6 is the day! I'm so excited to get this book out there, I'm pretty much jumping up and down every time I think of it. If you want a sneak peek, check out the book page here, where you can meet the heroes, Jody and Bren, and now read some fun excerpts. Yay!

More to come soon on that front, including fun blog tour and giveaway news, but one thing at a time, right?


The Takedown is going to be book 8 in the Superpowered Love series. That sounds pretty daunting, but in truth, they're all tailored to be read as stand-alones--you just get the layers if you read more of them. For those who like to do things from the beginning (I admit that I do too), though, good news! Right now, and for just a few days more, the boxed set of the first six books is on super-sale at the Loose Id site. All of them for under $5, which is amazing. So go and snag it, start from the beginning, hop around, whatever you like!

Hello from RT. Also, meet the new heroes~

May 2, 2017

Hey, hey, Atlanta! It's been a few years but I missed you!

If any of y'all are at RT, please hit me up. I'll be all over the place, but definites are the Riptide Cards Against Humanity game on Wednesday and of course the Book Fair--and the FANtastic day party! I've got swag, and I'm not afraid to use it.

... I might be a little loopy from travel. Apologies.

In other news, I'm now moved into the new house and working hard again. Which means it's safe to announce that Superpowered Love #8, THE TAKEDOWN is coming to an ereader near you soon. If you're keen, go and meet the heroes, Bren and Jody, on the shiny new book page. It's gonna be intense.

Jody Aguirre's family was kidnapped and tortured by witch hunters, and after a few days of captivity, he's all that's left. Using his frosty awakened superpowers, Jody manages to escape—and is rescued from the side of the road by Bren Faulkner's stretch Town Car. Bren, a hot-thermal awakened with government connections, promises to help find the witch hunters who destroyed Jody's life. 

While navigating his trauma and pain, Jody comes to rely on Bren for more than just food, his house, and his superpowered connections. Brendan is all that reminds Jody what's left to live for, and a strong advocate for justice vs. vengeance, like the proverbial knight in shining armor he is. As their affection for one another deepens and their attraction becomes impossible to deny, Bren wonders if acting on their feelings would be taking advantage. Jody, meanwhile, struggles to claw his way back to something like normality, knowing that Bren's part of the solution, not the problem.

But none of it matters, if they don't take down those witch hunters.

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Have some music and a lil read~

March 17, 2017

Ah yes, my almost-favorite holiday. Those who know me know I usually spend the day on a liquid diet and listening to very loud and occasionally obnoxious music. Today, however, I did something obnoxiously adult and... got a new house. Because I'm moving at the end of the month. So... good thing that house worked out!

Jamie and Kellan, my surly hard partying Irish-American boy, from Nobody's Hero. Art by Astro.

But all the party is still there from years past, and I mean to listen to it now I'm home and relaxing with a whiskey. If you're in the mood for some Paddy Rock, check out the DJ Kellan tag at my tumblr for past years' selections. It's mostly Irish-American punky stuff, because Kellan, but there's also a few rock and traditional numbers thrown in.

And if you're new around here, you can also get a freebie about those two boys set on St. Pat's! It's called Grá Mo Chroí, and you can get it from:

My folder (separate zip files for mobi, epub, pdf, and htm--take whatever you like!)
Smashwords (all eBook formats)

St. Patrick's Day used to be all about the Party for Kellan and Jamie Monday. A bottle of Powers; a case of Guinness; random relatives and friends dropping in in taxis to do shots and listen to Kelly's beloved Paddy Rock all night long. The clean-up would take days, but it was all worth it for their favorite holiday of the year.

Then along came the babies. Rory and Shea are the apple of their dads' eyes, the center of their world... but not really party-friendly. Jamie and Kelly haven't had a night out in six months, though, so Jamie's mother offers to take the teething twins for St. Pat's. 

Except she turns up sick on the day of, and it looks like the idea of a super-dad date isn't in the cards after all. Not unless one of them finds a way, anyhow...

This story is a free, fluffy short that takes place three years after Nobody's Hero.  It contains explicit scenes and is not suitable for anyone under 18.

Have a happy and safe St. Patrick's Day ♥
