Taming Triton is now on sale!

October 12, 2009

Taming Triton
Contemporary gay romance

Taming Triton, the second of three stories set at the Southern Cross resort, is now available at Amber Allure. I'm thrilled to have the three-book set be released in consecutive months. Here's a bit about the story:

Austin Michaels accepts his brother’s standing invitation for a Caribbean vacation at his island resort. Some time in the sun is just what he needs to map out a plan for his future. He gets lucky and meets a handsome teacher willing to have a little vacation fling with, as long as they can keep things fun.

Steve Guthrie’s secret longings have haunted him all his life. It’s time to face his questions and find the truth of who he really is beyond a staid college professor. His love of the sea prompts him to take a vacation at a Caribbean hide-a-way for relaxation and reflection. A sexy stranger with a tattoo tempts Steve to abandon his plans, enticing him to share a vacation romp.

Now Steve’s the student in a high stakes class of one, and to pass the course, he has to tame his very own Triton.

Netting Neptune - how long will the streak go?

October 6, 2009

Netting Neptune made it to #6 on the publisher's September 2009 Best Seller List. Yes, it's exciting stuff, at least to me. So far, all my new releases at Amber Allure have made the list. I know the streak can't last forever, but it is definitely fun right now.

And as an extra added bonus on the day, Netting Neptune received a 4 out of 5 rating at Reviews by Jessewave. Thanks to reviewer Aunt Lynn for her review. She doesn't usually say nice things about anyone.

Reviews are a mixed bag, even the good ones. The personal philosophies of the reviewer and the writer are seldom the same. A happy writer equals happy stories.

I believe that, as in real life, what is written on the virgin sands of the future is what matters in a relationship, not the frozen, tangled threads of the past. My message (yes, all writers have one)is that moving forward is what gets a person through life.

Maybe a positive outlook is a detriment to a writer. Maybe I need to suffer more for my art. Not.

Anyway, it was a good review, and Netting Neptune made the bestseller list, and now both items are old news. The future is in an open document on my desktop. The current story is a tough one. I'm sure the reviewers are going to crucify me on it since it deals with the possibility of one of the characters being HIV positive.

I can "hear" it now. But you know what? It's my story, and I'm doing it my way.
