I’m a part of a forum that’s exclusively for romance writers, and one day I noticed a post about a giant giveaway being put together, with short stories from all genres. It runs from January 3 to January 10 and you can find it here:

Nuts About You

Nutty Romances 1

Nathan’s been crushing on one of his regular Bulk Mart customers for a while now. In squirrel form, he sits on Vince’s bird feeders, munching on seeds and enjoying the eye candy. Until the day Vince notices him raiding the feeder…

The Romance Reviews Awards–Go Team Nathan!

squirrel ARe coverNuts About You has been nominated in The Romance Reviews Awards for this year, but it needs votes to keep moving through the rounds of the competition. If you like the nutty little rascal, and think that Nathan is a winner (I know Vince thinks he is), could you pop over here and click the blue Nominate This Book button at the top of the page?

Nathan and Vince and I thank you with all our hearts. (Sigh. Charlie’s in the corner laughing his tail feathers off at us. I swear I’m putting crazy glue on that feeder.)

Nathan Made It Home!

I got pictures today of our pseudo-Nathan, wearing his bandana, and making friends in his new home.

20160131_173607Here he is, checking out the locals. This one looks like just about the right size to hang around with. And she’s a reader too, which I’m sure Nathan appreciates.










20160131_173739Then there are other locals, who are rather intimidatingly large. (And, lets face it–Nathan gets nervous around carnivores.) Luckily, Stormy doesn’t appear too interested in a fluffy brown squirrel.










20160131_173901We probably shouldn’t say that he minds all carnivores, since he doesn’t seem to bothered by this one. Maybe Mischief just gives off that laidback vibe.


Many thanks to Debra and her daughter for the pictures of Nathan in his new home!

#Rainbow Snippets: Rise of the Alpha Squirrel

For all my friends in the US. *ducks*

Another tidbit from the sequel to my weresquirrel romance Nuts About You. 🙂 (This goes a line or two beyond the 6 sentence limit, but it sets up next week’s snippet so well… )

Don’t forget to check out the other snippets at our Facebook Group!

It didn’t take long. Vince appeared in the archway that led to the hall, wearing only Nathan’s absolutely favorite pair of shorts, and scratching his belly absently. He opened the refrigerator and retrieved a large measuring cup full of dark, grainy-looking pancake batter.

Vince put the cup on the counter and balled up the plastic wrap that had been keeping it fresh.

“Pancakes,” he called out the window.

Nathan turned his nose up and then, for extra emphasis, spun and gave him the ‘talk to the tail’ treatment. He loved Vince’s pancakes, but he was going to make the man work for the privilege of feeding them to him.

Some clunks and the unmistakable sound of the frying pan being put on the stove almost made him turn around, but he held firm. No more Nutsy. He was going to win that argument or die trying.

Nathan’s been crushing on one of his regular Bulk Mart customers for a while now. In squirrel form, he sits on Vince’s bird feeders, munching on seeds and enjoying the eye candy. Until the day Vince notices him raiding the feeder…

Nathan's afraid to introduce Vince to other shifters. After all, who wouldn't want to steal good-enough-to-lick-all-over Vince? But Fate--and boyfriends--have a way of cracking all your best laid plans.


Nathan and Vince are Going to France

croissant-squirrelOkay, maybe not really. But I just signed a contract with Sidh Press to translate Nuts About You into French, and they’re interested in the rest of the series as well.

It will be interesting to see how it turns out. I’m going to try to get them to hire Ana J. Phoenix to do the french cover as well, but we’ll have to see. They may want to differentiate it a bit from the the English version.

(While looking for an image for this post, I stumbled across this website: Water in My Paint Art Gallery. She has some fantastic paintings. You have to see the jackalope!And guys…guys…she has a NERD SQUIRREL! And she’s not expensive at all.)

We’re Number 1! We’re Number 1!

Nuts About You climbed the Amazon charts today, hitting #1 in the LGBT short reads.
Ranking Jan 17
The overall Kindle ranking blew my mind. I don’t think I’ve ever been that high. (Well, not in ranking, yuck yuck. :P)

I had to screenshot this too:
top 100 paid
Because eeeeeeeeeeeeee!

I think I might get them framed.

It still amazes me that people like my silly little running gag of a story. I mean, I shoveled every single nut pun I could imagine into it, and a few other really bad ones too. It’s a source of constant surprise that no one’s shown up at my door with torches and pitchforks to take me away as a serial pun abuser. (Not saying it won’t ever happen, just that I’m prepared. Be ready to have cats tossed at you when you show up.) I hope you’ll find that Rise of the Alpha Squirrel and The Wall Nuts continue the fine tradition of on-page bloopers and really bad puns.

Rise of the Alpha Squirrel

Nutty Romances 2

Nathan's met Vince's family, but Vince hasn't met Nathan's, and Nathan would like to keep it that way. Holy smoked almonds, what else do you do when you know how completely nuts your relatives are?

Why, you ease your man into it, by introducing him to normal shifters. Assuming you can find any.

But with a gossipy werehummingbird spreading the news, and a pair of young red pandas wreaking havoc with their fainting goat friends, Nathan’s about ready to climb into a pine cone and pull it in after him.

Then the local playboy weremoose hears about Vince, and Nathan has to find his inner alpha or the consequences will be worse than moldy hazelnuts.


Book Two of Nutty Romances — a little more squirrel nuttiness, and a whole bunch more shifters. 🙂

A bad case of mistaken identity.

Or maybe not. In Rise of the Alpha Squirrel, Nathan gets a chance to investigate Vince’s shorts while in squirrel form. Maybe that’s where this image comes from. 😀

In Canada, winter is always coming.

I wonder if that’s where Nathan’s from?
