It’s the end of September. You’ve got about a month until NaNoWriMo starts. Seems like plenty of time, right? Some of you are wondering why I’m already talking about NaNo when it doesn’t even start until November 1.

If this is your first time considering doing NaNoWriMo, or you’ve tried before and didn’t quite make your 50k, stay tuned because I’ll be sharing with you my tips, advice and some tricks to help you be...read more

Join me for a little backlist bump today. "Venus Envy by EM Lynley is a short, hot, sexy fun read with a satisfying twist that should’t be missed, and is highly recommended." -- Mrs. Condit Reviews Books One of my favorite stories is probably my least-read title (it joins A Lesser Evil for selling fewer copies than my age).

Ancient Rome meets popular culture and the lines between...read more

I’m going to confess something to you today: I would rather re-read The Hunt for Red October than just about anything on the romance best-seller lists. Since I write gay romance for a living, it may surprise you to hear (or read) that I never really liked reading romances.read more
