Sweet Release

It's the 10th of November! (It is here in Asia!)

Happy Release Day Buck and Ari!

Five Questions About There's Something About Ari

Is this book part of a series?

Yes it is. Ari is book two in the Bluewater Bay Series from Riptide.

 Can I read this book without reading the others?

Yes you can. Ari is completely stand alone, but you should still pick up the others. I'm in great company!

How is Bluewater Bay a series?

Imagine a Pacific Northwest town, sort of like Smithfield, but filled with townies and Hollywood types. Each stand alone book is a snapshot of life and love in Bluewater Bay, written by many authors instead of just little ole me.

 Why should I buy this book?

 Because I'm super proud of this novella, and if you're a fan of my work, I think you'll love it, too.

I'm in! Where can I buy There's Something About Ari, LB?

You can purchase it at Riptide, and at midnight tonight, Ari will be available at all your usual vendors.

Only a few more days!

My book comes out next week! Join me for the release of There's Something About Ari, along with L.A. Witt and this week's Riptide release of Starstruck, in a massive  Bluewater Bay Book Tour.

It's massive, I tell you.

Buck Ellis’s future seems pretty damn bright. With a full college scholarship in hand, he’s going to ditch Bluewater Bay and pave the way for his kid brother Charlie to do the same. The only fly in Buck’s ointment is his ten-year addiction to his best friend since second grade, his true love, and his Achilles heel: Ari Valentine, Mr. Least Likely to Succeed. 
 But then Buck’s mother dies, changing everything, and five years later, his future is still on hold. It’s a struggle to keep food on the table, a roof over their heads, and Charlie on the straight and narrow. Buck can’t afford any temptation, especially in the form of the newly returned, super hot, super confident, super successful television star Ari Valentine. 
 ADHD poster-child Ari Valentine left for Hollywood and lost everything, including his bad reputation. Then the breakthrough role of his career lands him back in Bluewater Bay, to the stunned disbelief of, well, everyone. But there’s only one person Ari longs to impress—the only person who ever really mattered to him, the person he left behind: Buck Ellis. 


Also available in print.

Exclusive!

Hair Flip + Favorite Sweater!
There's an exclusive excerpt of my upcoming release There's Something About Ari over at Heroes and Heartbreakers. I have such a hard time choosing the right bit to post, but my lovely editor suggested the entire prologue (it's short!) and I think she's spot on. I loved writing this pair. They're somewhat damaged, but they're also funny, hot, and meant to be together. They always were. Friends to lovers. My favorite.

Pop by and take a read. And thanks so much Megan Frampton for the invite.

In other news--I have a brand new professional author photo. I feel so...HEY LOOK AT ME...but hey, take a look at me in my favorite sweater! A very special shout out to my pals in Cali who gave me wine AND  a Marlo Thomas/Mary Tyler Moore 70's flip. I have pin straight hair, so it took a village to achieve that wave. And it took half a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc to get me to sit on that stool. Who knew modeling was so hard?


It's sunny and bright here in Connecticut. The Front Bottoms and Alt-J are on deck, there's coffee in the pot, and praise October, I'm writing! Bring on Winter.

Tasty!



A first, exclusive look at the almost completely ready-- but not quite past the final "final" approval--There's Something About Ari.
A TV star had arrived for coffee, and the fans who’d come to town in droves from Seattle and Vancouver and points south wanted their money’s worth. They didn’t mean to be intrusive. They were supportive. Some of them were also dressed as wolves, and that was wonderful— none of us would have jobs without them—up to the point when we were all blinded by cell phone light and choking on the odor of wet faux fur. Which was the case most of the time.
I followed the trail of blue cellphone screens toward their person of interest. It could have been one of the other actors from the shoot, one of those old detective dudes, but no. It was Ari. I’d been tuned in for a week waiting for him to appear, and I don’t know how I knew, but I felt his presence long before I saw him. Which was the twigs-and-bark way of saying I was super fucking paranoid, but he was here, and an entire oatmeal cookie disappeared into my mouth like nothing.
Not paranoid. I was clairvoyant. And starving.
Ari joined the back of the line like any other person, except he could have passed as the Stark of Winterfell’s bastard son. Kit Harrington’s American twin. God damn, he was good looking, in a nubby, charcoal wool sweater with one of those vaguely British high, rolled collars. The slick, salon-bought man-products were absent and his shaggy, black as midnight, incredibly thick hair waved almost to his shoulders. The man-scaped stubble from last week had thickened, and looking at him, my mouth turned to ash.
I suddenly understood exactly what the big deal was with Ari Valentine.
A smile spread across Ari’s face when he caught me staring, and god damn it, one solid week of steeling myself against running into him meant squat. My battered, idiot heart thumped inside my chest like a rookie, even as anxiety wrapped its meaty fist around my throat and squeezed until I dropped a mug on the counter. The handle cracked right off.
I got a grip, threw the mug in the trash, swallowed another cookie, which tasted like the aforementioned ash—go figure—and with Ari’s smile seared on my brain, I moved to the next order. Hot chocolate. Easy. Extra marshmallows. Great.
Available November 10th from Riptide Publishing. Blog tour begins November 3rd!

Live and upcoming!

Welcome to the world, Sam and Aaron!


You can pick up your copy at Carina Press or any of the usual vendors. I was just asked if the book will join the Men of Smithfield audio collection. I'll let you know!

Live Your Life Buy The Book interviewed me last week. They ran a Smithfield week of reviews on the first four books and I'm giving away the Carina M/M box set as a gifty, so pop by and comment. They've been big supporters of my work. Thanks so much!  Read the reviews and my Ce and Dan Christmas story.


For those of you new to Smithfield, book one--Mark and Tony-- is available in the aforementioned The Contemporary M/M Box Set from Carina Press. That collection also includes Josh Lanyon's Icecapade; KC Burn's First Time, Forever; and Bending the Iron by Libby Drew.

I'm still in Singapore, writing a little about my experience in Indochina, working feverishly on my next novella, and trying to promo from afar. I'll be back in the States on Friday, and I plan to stay there until mid-September.

Finally, I have the cover for my next book, a contemporary novella in a brand new collection, which hits the shelves this coming November. It's available for pre-order now!
