#TeaserTuesday – ’Til Death Do Us Part #Excerpt

’Til Death Do Us Part is kind of three stories in one. For a portion of the book the MCs, Henry and Sam, are separated with Sam thinking Henry had died. While they are apart, we get Henry’s story of survival, Sam’s story of grief and moving on, and at the beginning of each of these chapters where the two are apart, we get flashback scenes chronicling highlights from their …

#1LineWed – One of my favorites lines from To Love and To Cherish

I don’t know whether #1LineWed is supposed to be for WiPs or if it generally includes lines from backlist titles, but I figure I can make it be whatever I want. And today I want to highlight one of my favorite lines from my personal favorite of my own books. From Vows 3: To Love and To Cherish: This line is spoken by a woozy Nash to Myles/Emmitt. For context, Nash …

Happy 2-Year Anniversary to ’Til Death Do Us Part!

It’s hard to believe it’s been two full years since the release of my first novel after a seven-year hiatus from writing. It’s been a busy and fairly productive couple of years since then. I hadn’t originally pictured ’Til Death Do Us Part being part of a series, but it ended up spawning a followup novelette, a short story, and a spinoff novel! It’s now available in EBOOK, PAPERBACK, and AUDIOBOOK …

Today’s Flash Fiction Friday scene uses the word left in the comments of last week’s post: nervous Once again, I didn’t add any additional words from a random word generator. I already had enough inspiration about what I wanted to do with the scene.

Vows 1 & 2 Audiobook Review Roundup

All the reviews from the audiobook tour have posted (actually they’ve been up for a while, but I’ve been sidetracked), so it’s time for a roundup post! As reviews tend to be, they’re a mixed bag, but mostly favorable. Here are all the links—the good, the bad, and the ugly (and some outstanding, too!): At Sarah’s Reading Corner, Lora wasn’t a fan of the narration, but said: “I enjoyed the team …

#FlashFictionFriday, 3-Nov-2017 – To Love and To Cherish – #flashfic

Today’s Flash Fiction Friday scene uses the three words left in the comments of last week’s post: juice – Friday – socks 😁 It’s possibly cheating to call this one “flash fiction.” This is a retelling of an existing scene in the book from an alternate POV. In this case, it’s a scene from chapter 17 as seen from Percy’s POV. Click here for more bonus scenes from To Love and …

#FlashFictionFriday 27-Oct-2017 – To Love and To Cherish – #FlashFic

Today’s Flash Fiction Friday scene uses the three words left in the comments of last week’s post: flow – motivation – missing 😁 It’s not so much that these words led me to do a bonus scene for To Love and To Cherish as it is that I wanted to write one so I made them work. I wrote this on Wednesday, right after clicking the final approval of the upcoming audiobook …

Today’s Flash Fiction Friday scene uses the two words left in the comments of last week’s post, plus the two from the previous week’s post (since I skipped last week): yearning – heart – banana – holus-bolus 😁 I think it’s the right time of year to celebrate Nash and Emmitt’s first wedding anniversary, so this scene does that.

#RainbowSnippets Sept. 23, 2017 – ’Til Death Do Us Part

I’ve joined the Rainbow Snippets group on Facebook. From their description: “Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!).” Pretty cool, eh?

Vows Series Audiobooks Update

  I up and clicked on the final approval button for the ’Til Death Do Us Part audiobook yesterday. And it looks like I’ll be doing the same for From This Day Forward within a couple days, so if the FAQs on the ACX/Audible site are to be believed, you should be seeing the first one in 7-14 days, and the second one shortly thereafter. Although, since Book 2 is significantly shorter, …
