Yearly Round Up

It isn’t quite the end of the year yet, but with the holiday season fast approaching, and edits arriving nearly as fast, it is quite likely this will get lost if I don’t post it now. 

So, here is my yearly round up of projects and a sneak peek at some of what is coming up in 2013 from me.

New Releases in 2012

Hey, Baby (Gift of Love anthology)

Can a wrong number lead to Mr Right?

Nick Davis’s life is stuck in a rut until a stranger starts leaving messages on his answer machine. Connor Hayes has mistaken Nick’s number for that of his boyfriend, giving Nick an idea of what it would be like to have Connor in his life. Connor seems like his ideal man and although Nick knows he’s not Connor’s ‘baby,’ he can’t stop himself wishing he were.

After the wrong number issue is resolved, Nick doesn’t expect to hear from Connor again. He’s pleasantly surprised when he does. Unfortunately for Nick, Connor isn’t looking for a boyfriend. He already has one and now he wants Nick to help organise a surprise Valentine’s weekend for the couple.

Can Nick put his own feelings aside to make sure Connor’s Valentine’s Day plans go smoothly?

Between Heaven & Hell (Heavenly Sins #1)

Angel Machidiel (Mac) and demon Alastor have been denying the attraction they feel for each other for centuries because relationships between angels and demons are forbidden.

Deep in the Enchanted Forest he finds Robert, a cross-dressing painter who lives alone in his tower. Mistaking him for a woman, Prince Aiden is determined to have Robert as his bride. 

When the prince of his dreams shows up at Robert’s tower he is far from happy, especially when the handsome prince refuses to believe he is a man. Can he convince Prince Aiden to love him as the man he is, or is their happily ever after doomed from the start?

Now Todd is home for the holidays, and he wants to spend them with Deacon. It might not be so easy though. Neither Todd’s family nor Deacon’s are happy about their relationship and while Todd knows if they stand together they can make it work, convincing Deacon may be the greatest challenge of all.

Free Reads in 2012 

There are a number of free reads available right here on my blog and also available for download from Silver Publishing as part of their Silver Shorts collections.  Due to lack of time later in the year I think there is one (maybe more) story that is not available here on the blog as well.  But here are the links to all the 2012 free reads so you can see if you missed any this year.

A Midnight Date with the Easter Bunny (for the Hoppy Easter Blog Hop)
The Easter Bunny as you’ve never seen him before.

History (for the Hop Against Homophobia)
A possible future if everyone stands against homophobia until it is stamped out. 

What would you give for a chance to put things right?

Save the Last Dance for Me
What do you do when the man of your dreams asks you dance and you have two left feet?

Wash Day
What do you do when you have nothing to wear on wash day?

A Safe Place
Sometimes it isn’t about the place, it’s about the person you’re with.  (This story is in line for being extended into a full length story for potential publication.)

To Feel
A bittersweet story about loss and looking for the silver lining. 

The T-Shirt   (YA)
Joe gets ready for a date with his boyfriend. 

Study Date (Vinnie & Jeff #1)
Opposites attract in this YA male/male story. 

Moonlit Date (Vinnie & Jeff #2)
A second visit to Vinnie and Jeff from Study Date.

By Any Other Name

Unisex names can be quite confusing if you let them.

Certain Extras
A more sexy short than usual.

The Hard Way
A lesson learned the hard way. 

Together (Jody & Dominic #2)
The day after coming out can be awkward.  

The Painful Truth
A trip to A&E where explanations are demanded.  

When You Go Down in the Woods Today
A walk with his dog in the local park takes Dave somewhere he never would have imagined. 

Coming up in 2013

Coming from Silver Publishing in 2013.

FREE READ (January) – Breaking Free, a short story featuring Billy from my Christmas release, Someone Like You.

Skin Deep, my contemporary story with a hint of sci-fi is now scheduled for release on the 19th January 2013, having been brought forward from it’s February release date.

Here is the blurb for the story, which has not gone through the final proofs yet, so please excuse any typos etc that have not yet been caught. 

A science experiment gone wrong gives Justin the body of his dreams. For his best friend Leo it’s the start of a nightmare as he watches the man of his dreams turn from a shy nerd into a party animal. His best bet is to reverse the effects of the lab explosion, but how can he do that when he doesn’t know what caused it in the first place?

In the meantime Justin is gathering notches on his bedpost at an alarming rate. Will he learn that beauty is only skin deep before it’s too late?

Only in Your Dreams is my second full length novel and is currently scheduled for release on 2nd March 2013.  This was my NaNoWriMo project in 2011 and is a contemporary paranormal story about a young man who has the ability to travel into the dreams of others.  The story blurb has not gone through editing at all yet, but this is the rough draft of it as a teaser. 

Jay Sommers has always had the power to bend dreams to his will. When he reaches eighteen his powers grow and he discovers he can travel into the dreams of others. But his new ability doesn’t come without problems. Hiding his sexuality from his homophobic father during the day was hard enough, now even the safe haven of his mind is safe, especially when he finds it increasingly difficult to resist the temptations of his dream lover, Cory Irwin.

Jay soon discovers that when your sleeping hours are as real as your waking ones, your nightmares can come true in both worlds. Can Jay make his dreams come true as well? 

Between Good & Evil (Heavenly Sins #2) is not yet contracted.  The first draft was finished in the summer but I am not quite ready to send it into Silver yet.  Hopefully it will be sent in, contracted and released some time during 2013, so everyone can catch up with what is happening in the world of Tristan, Mac and Alastor.

As always I have plenty of other projects on the go as well and there will (hopefully) be other releases added to my list for 2013 in due course. 
I am also hoping to branch out and get contracted to a second publisher this coming year.  My attempt at that during 2012 was a bit of a disaster, although not for my readers since the story that was rejected by another publisher (Skin Deep) was accepted by Silver when I sent it in to them to obtain some advice on how to improve it.
