BECOMING RORY TO BE RERELEASED!
Book 4 of the College Rose Romances, Becoming Rory, will be rereleased before the end of January by Purple Horn Press. This means that all of the College Rose Romances will be back in circulation after the close of Torquere.
The One That Feels
Obviously posting on this project has stalled. It is very close to being completely posted, and I am working to get the last chapters posted by the end of February. For those of you that have been reading and enjoying the story, I hope that you will enjoy the conclusion.
The ARDOR Newsletter Archive will be closed down soon.
The old full PDF issues of ARDOR will soon be taken down. If you have not downloaded them to read, this is your last chance. I know most of you probably don't care that much about exclusive excerpts, and my thoughts at the beginning of the issue are something most people only care to read once. That said, each issue contained exclusive short fiction content that is not available anywhere else. From Leo's struggle and decision to go on the cruise in Gerry's Lion to the secret Valentine's plan in The Color of Romance, these are short 1500-2000 word pieces that give added dimension to my published stories. Pick them up while you can. I'm about to do some restructuring, and that whole page is going to disappear.
Andrew's PRayer to be Rereleased!

Dreamspinner Author workshop
I'm back! The Dreamspinner Press Author workshop was wonderful and I had a great time meeting many other authors, some bloggers, and making new friends. I also managed to get a pitch in, so you'll all be getting to see some new titles from me this year! What's in store? Well, first in line is getting my blog running on a proper schedule, which is good news for readers, since it means free chapters of a story about every two weeks. More on that in the blog soon!
Current WIP in final stretch!
I'm finishing up my current work in progress, originally which I've renamed Winter Rising. This one is a little less contemporary and a little more urban fantasy, but is still definitely m/m. I'm really excited to share Corey with all of you and hope to have it complete and submitted soon.
Red white & Blue promo Mini-blitz
The Torquere Twitter Take-Over has been rescheduled to July 13th and will kick off a promotional mini-blitz for Andrew's Prayer. Catch me 7/13 at the Torquere Twitter feed from 6-9 pm Eastern Time; 7/14 at Love Bytes doing a guest blog (with a giveaway!); and 7/15 closing out the mini-blitz at Torquere's own Romance for the Rest of Us Blog for a belated Release Party for Andrew's Prayer from 7-10 pm Eastern Time.
Steven's Heart Bonus Scene
When Steven's Heart was released, I wrote a bonus scene. Unless you were paying attention right at the release, it would have been easy to miss. My father-in-law was in hospice, and so it didn't get as widely distributed as it could. I'm so thankful this story got released and I'm sharing this thanks on my facebook page, where I've released that brief scene for the Thanksgiving Holiday. You can find the missing scene here.
BLOG TOUR STOPS - STEVEN's HEART
And the blog tour is on its way, kicking off at Love Bytes. Our second stop is Prism Book Alliance, followed by stops at The Land of Make Believe, Andrew Q Gordon's blog, and This Writer's Life, the blog of writer Larry Benjamin. We also have stops at The Blogger Girls, GGR, Joyfully Jay, Rainbow Gold, and The Novel Approach. Unfortunately, due to some technical issues, the Kimichan Experience was unable to host the blog tour stop, but I'm looking for ways to share the guest post I wrote for that stop also.
