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.

In Tales from Real Life, putting the new flue in was great. It’s nice to be able to light the wood furnace without that nagging concern that this time will be the time I set the house on fire. But, with all the dust and insulation floating in the air, the lung monster has reared it’s ugly head and all I want to do is sleep, so there’s not much happening on the word front. I did make it 7.5 thousand words on Proud Flesh this weekend. You’re all going to hate me–I’m just warning you to take the sting out of it. And The Wall Nuts–the third story about Nathan–is sitting at about 5K. I should get it up in the progress bars, but I’m starting to get a bit embarrassed about how many there are. And there’s more I could throw up there too, but I’m trying to focus. (Hahahahaha!) I would like to get the little science fiction story finished, but the culture is giving me fits and I can’t find my story bible for it. It’s probably in a pile of papers somewhere. Maybe a nap this afternoon will loosen up enough energy to get some words down. 🙂

They’re still working on the flue here; only a last few pieces to go, plus new pipes to the furnace and the flange on the roof. The difference in temperature between yesterday and today though–I’m going to fill a hot water bottle to put my feet on today. The still haven’t put the cap on the flue, or closed up the hole in the roof, so I guess I’m responsible for a bit of global warming. It’s too bad it doesn’t actually seem to be warming anything up! Brrrr.

Alpha Squirrel is a Bestseller!

aRe 36 Less than a day after going on pre-order, Alpha Squirrel has hit All Romance Ebooks Bestseller list. Thank you to everyone who pre-ordered! You’ve really made my day. My beta readers tell me you won’t be disappointed; I’m a little too close to it still to have any opinion on the relative merits of the story. For those who thought the first one was short on world-building, though, this one makes up for it. 🙂

Rise of the Alpha Squirrel

Nutty Romances 2

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.


And we’re live!

12699163_1680330238872313_452051671_oAlpha Squirrel is currently up for pre-order on All Romance Ebooks. I’m still waiting for the Zon to say it’s okay, which may not be until tomorrow morning. I’ve posted the link anyway, since they gave me my ASIN. Now it’s just a waiting game.

And what do you think of this awesome graphic that Ana J Phoenix made for me? She’s got a knack for picking out the perfect quote for these things. I love it; it makes me laugh.

ETA: Amazon’s good now! Wow, that was fast. The link in the sidebar will take you to your Amazon store, if you want to pre-order.

Just a note: the current price of 99 cents is only good until March 3. On March 4, it goes back up to its regular price of $2.99. So if you’re interested, grab it while it’s cheap!

Alpha Squirrel went to beta readers yesterday–late, yes. Health issues and input from my usual “must add 2000 words at the last minute” brain. But it’s gone and now I get to chew my nails and attempt to distract myself with another work in progress and pre-formatting on the manuscript. Yes, I’m also totally doing stuff out of order, which may come back to bite me. Blame my stupid immune system–I do. 😀

In keeping with the hummingbird theme, I thought I’d give you a slightly better intro to Charlie. He’s not in the scene yet, but Nathan is trying to prepare Vince for his first encounter with a were other than Nathan.

“A hummingbird?” Vince’s expression was incredulous. “You’re kidding me.”

“What? You can believe in a squirrel shifter, but not a hummingbird?” There was movement in the trees, a flash of pale skin, getting closer.

“Listen, he’s got a bit of a Napoleon complex—all hummingbirds do. Don’t make fun of him being a bit on the small side, it just gets him all worked up and then he’s impossible to live with.”

“A hummingbird with a temper.”

Assuming everything goes to plan, Alpha Squirrel should go on pre-order on February 15, and be available for sale on February 25. Keep an eye open for the blog tour, as well. We’re posting excerpts from a couple of books written by a team of weres with doctorates (And yes, they’re exactly as wordy and pretentious as you expect.), who have produced a series of self-help books to help weres integrate into human society.

Check out the rest of our Snippets–there’s some really great ones that will make you need a second TBR pile!

#RainbowSnippets: Rise of the Alpha Squirrel

In my last couple of snippets, we met cute, fluffy, nut-obsessed Nathan, and his hot-as-roasted-chestnuts love interest Vince. This snippet comes from the beginning of the sequel, Rise of the Alpha Squirrel. If you’ve read Nuts About You, you know that at the beginning of Alpha Squirrel, Nathan sneaks into Vince’s home and plays a silly squirrely trick on him, and gets caught.

And then Vince commits a terrible crime–he calls Nathan…Nutsy. *gasps of horror*

And Nathan’s going to make him pay.

I’m aiming for a February 21 (or probably the 18th, because I have classes all day Thursday and it keeps me from obsessively clicking reload on the browser) release date for Alpha Squirrel, but you can see the cover now. 🙂

He didn’t go far—just out into the yard and up the post of the new birdfeeder seated conveniently outside the kitchen window. Good thing this Nutsy obsession was Vince’s only bad quality, or Nathan might have been tempted to go home. But with Vince, there was a lot more in the ‘good nuts’ pile than the ‘bad nuts’ one, so he stayed.

Didn’t mean he had to be all happy and cheerful though. Disgruntled, he fished out a fat black and gray sunflower seed and gnawed the shell open as he waited.

Check out the rest of the group’s snippets here.

Tuesday Tickle: Rise of the Alpha Squirrel

OMG, I nearly forgot! Darn this dayjob, sucking up all my time and brain power! But here it is, the moment when my cuddly, adorable, food-obsessed weresquirrel lets out the warrior squirrel within.

“You think you can take me, rodent?”

Rodent! Why, that swamp-wading, mulch eating, four-legged shag rug! How dare he say something so rude? Sure, Nathan and his cousins had been known to use the word on each other, purely joking, but it was a totally different thing when someone who wasn’t a weresquirrel used it. If he hadn’t already been planning to take Jude on over Vince, this would have pushed him over the edge.

Nathan grinned, a fierce grin, worthy of a meat-eater. “Don’t worry, Jude, I promise not to hurt you. Much.” He shushed Vince, who was trying to stop him, but Jude wasn’t a predator, just a cranky old moose with bad manners. And a cornered squirrel was a deadly squirrel.
