Guest Posts and Giveaways Galore!

snow6Hey! Today I’m guesting on TWO blogs, because I have two releases that just happened to be almost on top of one another.

The first one is a post I wrote for Book Reviews and More by Kathy, talking about the Underground Anthology in support of the forums for Absolute Write.

The second one is at Joyfully Jay, the first in a series of posts about my sweet Christmas ‘make you go awwww’ novella. There’s a couple of giveaways for this one: an incredibly addictive animated Advent calendar or an ebook copy of Christmas Goes Analog, and a chance to win a pretty little pewter ornament. So click on over and enter!snow8

Underground Erotica is Live on Amazon, ARe, and B&N!!!

1360649 If you like new books, and good books, and books by new authors, here’s a great way to help support the forums at Absolute Write. Absolute Write is a thriving community, a training ground for authors as they learn the tools of their craft.

Underground is a mixed anthology, with MF, MM, ménage and BDSM, so you get a taste of everything. And, having beta’d a couple of them, it’s definitely worth the $3.99. And all proceeds go to support the forums, which must cost a bomb to keep going. I don’t know how they do it, but I have a lot of respect for them, because they do.

So take a stroll over to All Romance Ebooks, Amazon or Barnes & Noble. Treat yourself and treat Absolute Write too!

Welcome to the Underground!

The erotica authors of the Absolute Write are taking you underground—sometimes literally, sometimes figuratively. Karenna Colcroft’s haunting story gives sex in public an unexpected twist, and Erin Lark makes waiting out a storm into something special—and hot!— before Kate Lowell draws you deep into a cave for a steamy encounter. Lauren Gallagher sends you back to the 1930s for some gambling, bootlegging, and a little forbidden ménage, while Maryn Blackburn brings two enemies together in the wintery depths of World War II.

If you’re in the mood for something extra spicy, you’ll love how C.P. Foster opens up a very new world for a curious barmaid. And stick around because Cleo Peitsche and Jack L. Pyke keep the kink coming.

Come join us—but fair warning. Once you go underground, you may never want to come back…

Tuesday Tickle: Christmas Goes Analog

So, it occurs to me it’s Tuesday, and I owe you a Tickle, since I copped out last week. This one is from the Christmas novella that currently has me in a mad panic, because it comes out on December 3. Eek!

Shawn took advantage of Rob’s temporary distraction to slide his hands under his boyfriend’s sweater, moving it smoothly out of the way so he could run his fingers up the groove of his spine. Rob jumped and let out a strangled whimper, but continued his explorations down Shawn’s neck.

“You warm enough?” Shawn whispered.

“Yeah.” Rob sat back and peeled of his sweater. “You. Shirt off, too.”

Shawn sat up in a half-curl and pulled his t-shirt over his head. “You want more off than this?”

Rob tilted his head to one side and was quiet for a moment. “No. Not yet. This is nice.” He stretched himself out again on top of Shawn, warm skin against warm skin. “Slow burn. We’ve got all night. Unless you’re worried about Santa catching us.”

Shawn squirmed underneath him, feeling himself grow even harder at the sensation of Rob’s chest against his and Rob’s nipples rubbing past his own. “I think he’d understand.”

“Good.” Rob bent once more to Shawn’s mouth, only this time his tongue slid out to skim delicately over the inner surface of Shawn’s lips. It was barely more than a hint of pressure, the tip flicking along the sensitive nerve endings, but it coaxed a needy groan from Shawn’s throat. He opened his mouth wider and moved one hand up to cup the back of Rob’s head, bringing him close enough for a real kiss.

Rob laughed and then moaned as Shawn took charge, his tongue stealing in to tease at Rob’s. Shawn slid his other hand over Rob’s ribcage, dragging his fingernails lightly over the hollows between the bones. Rob arched into the touch, his hips shoving downward to rub against Shawn’s hard-on.

Shawn broke the kiss. “This is going to be more like spontaneous combustion if you keep that up.”

“So long as it’s your clothes that go up in flames. Maybe we better get them out of the way, just in case.”

“What happened to slow burn?”

“It suffered from spontaneous combustion.”

This is probably the sweetest thing I’ve ever written, except for maybe Jamie and Henry, which we can talk about next week, if you like. 🙂 Feels strange to suddenly have so many stories out.

But, you know what? I’m really looking forward to some down time. By that, I mean time that isn’t tied up in revisions, or promo, or anything like that. New words, new characters to meet, new worlds to explore. I’m starting to think about the steampunk again…

Thursday Squirrel? 15 More Days…

I have so damn many of these….

I believe he was doing the ‘drunken squirrel dance’ on the wing of John Scalzi’s plane just before this. Honestly, Vince, and you call yourself a boyfriend!

Guess What's 20% off if you pre-order it!

The Forgotten Menagerie Anthology!!!! Look, you can see Nathan sitting on dude’s arm!

forgottenmenagerie_3d_500

Here’s the link if you want to pick up a copy for the reduced price of $4.79 for the ebook or $7.99 for the softcover. You’ll notice the release date is now October 18th, instead of the 15th, because we like to be thorough.

Remember, my adorably dumb squirrel is not the only story in there, but you get four other stories as well:
•Burdens Lightened — Angelia Sparrow (@asparrow16)
•The Greatest of These — Alex Whitehall (@alexwhitehall)
•Dangerous Territory — Cari Z (@author_cariz)
•Mirrors, the Moon and the Boy — Avery Vanderlyle (@averyvanderlyle)

So it’s a pretty sure thing that you’re going to find something you like in it, and probably more than one. After all, who can resist cute, fluffy, amorous squirrels? With an obsession with all kinds of nuts? (wink, wink, nudge, nudge)

Sunday Squirrel

Now, you know that this is going to have to show up in later instalments, right? Beta readers, chime in!

Tuesday Guest Tickle: Touch Me Not by Genna Donaghy

I had the great privilege of reading this book, first in draft chapters, and later in beta.

It’s crack.

Seriously.

Best $6 you’ll ever spend. (Unless you want to buy Bite Me Tender, too. Then it’s the second-best $6.)

Here’s a tidbit to whet your appetite:

Luckily the room wasn’t far away. His shoulders burned from the weight of the man. He almost dropped him while opening the door and accidentally bumped the man’s head on the way in. Fancy Suit swore and woke with a start, hands and feet flailing. It was too much, and they both fell in a tangle of limbs as the door closed behind them.

“What?” Fancy Suit looked around blearily. “Where…”

“You’re drunk.” Jake had had about enough of this. He pushed him away and stood. “I got you a room for the night. Stay put and sleep it off.”

“What’s goin’ on? I don’t…”

Jake sighed and pulled him back to his feet with every intention of propelling him to the bed.

“Wait,” the man said. Before Jake could stop him, he reached out to place a hand on the back of Jake’s neck. His ungloved hand.

A tingle of warmth went through Jake, from the point of contact, through his skin, and down to pool in his heart. He looked into the man’s—Henry’s—smoky black, confused eyes, and deep affection stole over him.

Henry’s face broke into a wide, drunken smile, and Jake felt himself returning it.

“Stay,” Henry told him and pulled Jake to the bed. “Stay.” It was a direct order, and Jake couldn’t have refused it, even if he’d wanted to.

Genna’s also giving away a copy at Book Reviews and More by Kathy.

Your Sunday Squirrel

With Forgotten Menagerie coming out on October 15th, I’ve been finding/receiving lots of squirrel based funnies and I thought I’d share them. Here’s the first one, about a soldier that saved a dying squirrel who, in the end, didn’t die. (Very vague echoes of something that happens in Nuts About You.)

Dying Squirrel

No, I don’t know what the other stories are about. I’m keeping that as a birthday surprise for myself. But feel free to go investigate. There are four other stories in the anthology:
Burdens Lightened — Angelia Sparrow (@asparrow16)
The Greatest of These — Alex Whitehall (@alexwhitehall)
Dangerous Territory — Cari Z (@author_cariz)
Mirrors, the Moon and the Boy — Avery Vanderlyle (@averyvanderlyle)

I threw their Twitter handles in, too, in case you want to stalk follow them.
