Conversations with my Editor

It’s no secret to anyone who’s known me any length of time–I love to tease my editor at Loose Id. Today, because I was bored and restless and itchy because I can’t take meds before my lung function test tomorrow, I sent her this:

Me: Hee hee. If Julian was real, he’d so kill me:

There was a new layer of muscle on his back and, when Leo explored farther, his ass too.

“How much time do you spend at the gym?”

Julian paused in his ravaging of Leo’s body. “Shut up. It’s not like this job doesn’t need it.” He nibbled his way down Leo’s jaw, pushing Leo’s head back with the pressure, then licked a tickling, arousing line down his neck. “Just think what that muscle can do for you tonight.”

“Fuck,” Leo whispered, and Julian laughed.

“Damn right.” But he was no more immune to the heat between them than Leo was. He arched and rubbed himself against Leo, panting in his ear, and the motion seemed as involuntary as the low groan that shivered against Leo’s skin. “Unph,” he muttered, and grabbed the side of Leo’s ass. His breath shuddered out of him. “No, I’m supposed to go slow. It’s Valentine’s.” He growled and buried his face in Leo’s chest. “This was supposed to be romantic.”

Slow would have been nice, but Julian wasn’t even twenty-five yet. Leo doubted he was capable of slow, not until the edge was taken off. “You brought flowers and wine and fancy chocolate. I’d say we’ve covered the romance part of it. To hell with slow. We’ve got all night, if you want to do slow later.”

“Yeah?”

“Yeah.” And to prove his point, Leo rolled over on top of Julian and kissed him like he was still twenty, and not looking forty square in the eye.

——-
Some possible pronoun confusion there, but poor Leo.

And what I got back from her:
DUDE! … Omg, why don’t they stock emergency makeout boys in (nameless coffee shop where she likes to hang out and tease the boys)? Fucking toppy Julian. Omg, fucking take-me-baby Leo. Omg.
——-
So, yeah. I think I pushed some buttons there. 😀

But you’re all gonna hate me for what I’m doing to Dave. #sorry #notsorry

Another Review of Flesh Market 4 stars from Joyfully Jay

Flesh Market New Review 4.5 stars!

“I love this story. I loved Julian and Leo. They go through so much while they’re undercover. They make some tough decisions and my heart hurts for Julian and what happened to him. I so didn’t think they were going to make it through at times. Right at the end of the operation I thought Julian was done for sure!” –Molly Lolly

So, who won the Flesh Market giveaway?

It was a lady named Ran, who lives in the Phillipines. She asked for this book:

Amazon

It’s a really good book. So, her copy of The FBI Career Guide is on it’s way to her. Because of where she lives, she probably won’t get it until the New Year, mail delivery being what it is. But it is on it’s way. 🙂

Congratulations, Ran, and happy reading!

If I missed any, let me know and I’ll add them to the list. I got into something I’m allergic to this morning and, while it’s not bad, I’m as dumb as a post right now. 🙂

Flesh Market Update

Well, Flesh Market has fallen off the overall bestseller list at All Romance Ebooks, but it’s still climbing the Mystery and Suspense list, which is a nice little boost. I’ve had to put the sequel aside for a bit to work on the Christmas story, and get caught up on schoolwork. Check in tomorrow for a sneak peek at “Have Yourself a Merry Little Sexmas”. 🙂

Flesh Market is at #32 at ARe now!

Woohoo! You have no idea how much this means to me. I’m so excited. THANK YOU!!!

FM at 32

Still on sale, too, if you’re tempted. 😀 (I know, shilling again. 😛 )

Please Vote for Flesh Market at the Divine Book Awards

Divine-2015-Book-Awards-600x480
Divine Magazine 2015 Book Awards

It’s up in MM of 2015, and LGBT Crime. The top twenty in each category with the most likes will go on to the final round.

I’m not good at shilling my stuff, but I think Flesh Market is a good–if sometimes difficult to read–story. I worked hard at it and did my best to balance the needs of as wide an audience of readers as possible. So, as someone who totally sucks at self-promotion, please go vote for Flesh Market. 🙂

Now the awkward silence as I try to think of something else smart to say.

Nope. Got nothing.

Go vote. Even if it isn’t for me. Everyone, even established authors, needs a boost on occasion. Votes in competitions like these are like hugs.

Hug an author today. 🙂

I. Am. Speechless.

best one yet
I’ve never had a book get to this spot before. I’ve had them sneak into one the lower spots before, but I always thought that top one was reserved for people like LA Witt and Charlie Cochet and, well, Piper Vaughn and Kenzie Cade. All I can say is Thank You, and I hope you enjoy Julian and Leo’s story.

I think I need to go lie down.

🙂

Woohoo! Flesh Market is #49 on ARe’s Best Seller List!
