Working On An Interesting Contest for My Next Release…

With the release of my upcoming book, FOUR GAY WEDDINGS, I’ve decided to do a contest here on the blog.

This won’t be like other contests you’ve seen. I’m not going to make you hop from one blog to the next and I’m not going to make it ridiculously complicated. In fact, there won’t be anything cute and fuzzy and warm about it.

It’s going to be a contest where ten readers will be eligible to win one free e-book each. There will be no deadlines and I will keep this discreet. In other words, all you anons are more than welcome to participate. Reading and writing erotica is all about good taste and discretion and I want you to know that I respect (value) your privacy more than you’ll ever know!!

I’m still working on the details. I promise, this has nothing to do with “Black Friday” hype and there will only be one small catch. The catch, if you can call it that, will be that you have to read my new release, FOUR GAY WEDDINGS in order to be in the contest. But that’s it. I’m not going to make you hop all over the interwebs on a wild goose chase.

Stay tuned for more information, because I’m still working on the details. As soon as Four Weddings is released, I will put this into action. And if it works, I’ll do it with every new release.

Occupy Writers: If You Are So Inclined…

“We, the undersigned writers and all who will join us, support Occupy Wall Street and the Occupy Movement around the world.”

I’m not all that political. Basically, I vote independently and always on issues instead of party line.

And I’m not exactly sure what the folks in the Occupy Movement are aiming for, not exactly. They haven’t set out a plan or a detailed agenda. And no one is leading them. But I do like the basic, overall agenda I’ve read and heard about. So I added my name to occupy writers thinking that maybe our illustrious leaders in Washington might get the hint that we’re tired of their old time sleazy politics, including the lies, and we’re looking for a change. I think most of us are just as sick of corporate manipulation, like outrageous loan shark interest fees where people will never be able to pay off their debts, and greed.

New Adult Erotic Romance…Untitled

I’ve been working on a Christmas story, which is something I never do this time of year. But I wanted to do this one for several reasons. One is that I’m truly captivated by the “new adult” genre. Another is because the idea came to me and I decided to get it out “there.”

Here’s the blurb, so far, which is subject to change. I still haven’t come up with a title yet. But I know something will come to me.

The concept of “new adult” interests me partly because so many seem so passionate about it, and partly because so many know-it-all-types within the publishing industry are dismissing it. And “new adult” is over eighteen, which makes for interesting erotic romance. I know I was having plenty of erotic romance between the ages of eighteen and twenty, and I’m sure they are still doing it.

According to this, new adult is:

…they fit in a new, previously-unidentified genre called ‘New Adult’. JJ from St Martin’s Press explains that, ‘New Adult [fiction] is about young adulthood, when you are an adult but have not established your life as one (career, family, what-have-you)’.

Blurb for story:

A young veterinarian in his twenties who works as an ER doc at a 24 hour animal clinic is stranded in a snow storm on Xmas Eve during the midnight shift, when a good looking guy walks in with a basket full of newborn lab puppies and a mother who is near death.
