HOORAY!

10982001_10153173811659930_3366771793462342347_nWhen your LGBTQ romances featuring struggles against marriage inequality become dated.. I’ve never been happier as a writer.

I can’t even right now. All I can do is smile.

And be blinded by all the beautiful rainbows and words of love being shared across social media today.

Love is love. Love wins. It may be a hard struggle that takes generations, but love will always win in the end.

This isn’t just a victory for gay rights; it’s a victory for human rights, and for our country as a whole. We are all created equal. Period.

So, get out there and spread the love! Next stop, polyamourous recognition.

About my story, The List

Samantha hasn’t had much luck when it comes to love. Of course, she’s never had much luck, period. Known as the Queen of Catastrophe, introverted Sam thinks her luck might be changing when she wins an all-expenses paid trip to Dasia Island. With a crazy to-do list written by her best friend Jack, Sam sets off on her first real adventure in years. After a stuttering start involving food-poisoning and a run-in with a very large spider, she meets Jason, the guy of her dreams made real. As the list gets checked off, item by item, Sam wonders if Jason can help her check off item twenty-two, which involves surf, sand and someplace secluded.

Paperback Writer?

For an indie-author, producing a paperback (print) version of a book can be an arduous, expensive and time-consuming task. Currently, I’m an eBook only author. I’m also an eBook only reader, having not purchased a physical fiction book since 2010. I have this assumption that physical book demand is on the decline, and that I’m not losing a huge number of potential readers by only offering my books in digital format. Assumptions being what they are (a bad thing), I’ve decided to create this poll. It’s anonymous and only your answers are collected. Thanks in advance for your feedback!

As the list gets checked off, item by item, Sam wonders if Jason can help her check off item twenty-two, which involves surf, sand and someplace secluded.

Read an excerpt from The List:

Sam was three sips into her second daiquiri when there was a knock at the front door. Surrounded by suds in a bubble bath, she shimmied her body so that it faced the door, sloshing some water to the floor. The wood-enclosed tub stood freely along one wall, separated from the enclosed toilet area but joined with the rest of the suite. A bath had seemed like the perfect idea to soothe her aching confidence after the day’s multiple fiascos.

The knock sounded again, this time more urgently. Sam breached the tub, suds dripping across the wood as she reached for a nearby towel. Her hand slipped on the ceramic rim, knocking her drink into the water while causing her to lose an already precarious balance. With a less than graceful swan dive and a bit of a squeal, she ended up face to the floor and bare ass in the air.

“Sam?!”

Oh, God. No. Sam’s body froze. Jason wouldn’t dare barge in, would he?

The door knob clicked. Sam renewed her efforts to reach the darn towel. And…

“Sam- Oh, shit. Sorry!” Jason came to a halt three steps too late into her suite and averted his eyes to the wood beam and thatched ceiling.

Excerpt from story #1: Steers & Queers

In this excerpt, Skylar and Hooch are in the hospital after Skylar’s bad fall from the bull Beyond Reason. Hooch, a rodeo clown and Skylar’s good friend, is doing his best to help Skylar deal with the fact that he’s just been outed on national television, and may have lost his coach, his sponsors and his chances at the PBR championship finals.

“That bad, huh?” Skylar figured the backlash was only just beginning. His gaze flicked up to the dark TV, tempted to turn it on to see just how bad it really was. “Did he drop me?”

“Sky…”

Did he drop me?” Skylar mustered all the gusto he had left into those words.

With a heavy breath, Hank answered. “Yeah, man. After someone from that club confirmed you were there last night, Frank publically denounced himself as your coach. Said he had no idea he was training a… A…”

“You can say it, Hank. A faggot. He had no idea he was training a faggot.”

“I’m… I’m sorry.”

“Not your fault. Shoot, you saved me today. It’s just all happening so fast… Falling apart so damn fast…” Skylar sucked in a breath and hiccupped. “God dangit!”

“Hey, now, you’ll get through this.”

“Hooch…” Despite being close friends with the guy as they traveled the national rodeo circuit together, he wished Hank would let him cry like a baby in peace.

Hooch didn’t let up. “You’re a cowboy, ain’t ya?”

“Hank…” Skylar rolled his eyes as he tried to suck back another sob.

“You done fell off the bull. Fine. It happens. But, you always dust your jeans off and get right back on.”
