Taste of Honey release day!

Today is the day! The second edition of A Taste of Honey is now available from Dreamspinner Press.

Boone Phillips needs a girlfriend—now! If he shows up to the family reunion alone, his mother will throw every woman in sight at him. But the only “woman” Boone trusts enough to ask is Honey, the drag queen alter ego of his best friend, Rob. It’s a crazy idea, but Boone is desperate.

Boone wins Rob over to the idea after first going on a “date” with him as Honey, but everything feels different once the plan is set in motion. Between nosy relatives, illegal moonshine, and the sight of Rob in white lace panties, Boone starts to wonder if he’s as straight as he thought. When an earth-shattering kiss sends Rob running, however, Boone learns some surprising things about both his family and himself. Now he needs to convince Rob to give him another chance, or his first taste of Honey might also be his last.

The Walker Boys

From the frying pan into the fire.

After a critic’s review attacks both Chef Liam Walker’s culinary skills and his personal life, Liam can no longer take the heat of the cutthroat New York City restaurant scene. He needs to get out of the kitchen—at least long enough to cool down and regroup.

At the Overlook Resort in North Carolina, Liam meets owner Carter Galloway. Carter has a passion for the hospitality business to rival Liam’s own, and it’s not hard to see where their shared interests—and attraction—could lead. But Carter has no interest in a fling, and Liam has no intention of walking away from the career he fought so hard for. If they want a taste of happiness together, they’ll have to find the courage to break the bonds threatening to pull them apart.

Up-coming Releases

As Ari knows, I’m never happier than when we have at least three works listed in our “Coming Soon!” box in the sidebar of our website, so as you can imagine, I’m thrilled that we now have nine works listed!

Dreamspinner has picked up several of our previously published works and will be re-releasing them in 2017, and we’ve gotten a contract and some estimated dates so they’ll be mixed in with our new releases.

I’m happy to say we’ll have something — new or repub — coming out almost every month in 2017, and that’s just with Dreamspinner. We’ve decided to self-publish some of the works that Dreamspinner didn’t pick up, and we’ve set a goal of getting at least one or two out before the end of 2016.

Our main goal is getting the Herc’s Mercs series out, including the 6th book, which hasn’t been published anywhere before. We did a pretty thorough revision of book 1, so our readers will see some significant differences between the repub and the original release. The main thing we changed is Jude’s characterization and his relationship with his grandmother, and we developed the antagonist’s character and presence in the story a little more.

We haven’t decided how much we’ll tweak the other books in the series; right now, our focus is on finishing a couple of new works, one of which has a looming deadline. But we’re looking forward to making the entire series available again soon!

Pulling all those works from our back catalog was ouchy, so I’m pleased so many of them found a new home with Dreamspinner, and I look forward to them being available to our readers again. We’re going to rebuild our catalog slowly but surely, and we’ve already taken the first steps toward making that happen!

New release: A Taste of Honey!

atasteofhoney185A Taste of Honey is now available from Torquere Press! We took a break from writing about big, badass mercs to write something a little lighter. A Taste of Honey is more of a romantic comedy set during a Southern family reunion, and we had fun putting a different spin on the “fake girlfriend” trope.

Boone is just trying to avoid his mama’s matchmaking by bringing his crossdressing friend to the reunion, but a glimpse of Rob’s white lace panties makes him question whether he’s as straight as he thought.

This is one of our shorter, lighter works, but it was a fun little palate cleanser after the heavy adventure-and-angst of the Herc’s Mercs series and the third Blood Bathory novel. 😉

As Ari posted a few days ago, we’ve got another Herc’s Mercs book in the pipeline. We don’t have a release date for it yet, but we’ll update here when we get it.

Currently, we’re writing an epilogue for The Quality of Mercy, which is a sequel to Finding Forgiveness that focuses on Carlos Hernandez. In Finding Forgiveness, Carlos mentions his regrets over losing a former lover because his eyes and his feet wandered too much, so we’re giving him a chance to try to win back the man he loves. Once we finish the epilogue, that manuscript will be in my editing queue.

Next up, we’re working on a second book for Dreamspinner’s Dreamspun Line with a goal of getting it finished and submitted by June.

After that, we’ve got a holiday story to write, and then it’ll be on to the next book in the Herc’s Mercs series! So many plot bunnies, so little time.

A Taste of Honey pre-order!

A Taste of Honey is now available for pre-order at a 15% discount! If you reserve your copy now, you’ll get it emailed to you a day before the official release date, which is March 9.

Boone Phillips needs a girlfriend and fast! His family reunion is approaching, and if he shows up alone, his mother will throw every woman in sight at him. But the only “woman” Boone trusts enough to ask is Honey, the alter ego of his gay, cross-dressing best friend Rob. Desperate, he begs for Rob’s help.

Rob has doubts about the wisdom of agreeing to help because he’s had a crush on his straight friend for years. After a practice date, however, he decides to go along with the charade, despite the chance that Boone might discover his secret infatuation.

Between nosey relatives, illegal moonshine, and the sight of Rob in white lace panties, Boone starts to wonder if he’s as straight as he’d thought. When an earth-shattering kiss sends Rob running to protect his heart, however, Boone learns some surprising things about both his family and himself. Now he needs to convince Rob to give him another chance, or else his first taste of Honey might also be his last.
