Here’s the cover! And a second cover just for fun

I’m getting everything together for the new book so still expecting/hoping it’ll be up really soon. Hopefully tomorrow. I will post immediately after the book goes live with the usual links and I’m really hoping you’ll like it. :-)

Here’s the official cover for the book. The description is at the end.

Bookcover for Mason's Regret

It’s blue. Since I love blue, betting on blue would’ve been a smart bet. ;-)


There was a cover war and I had a really hard time passing up the chance to use a slightly different look. In the end, I decided to stick with the style everyone’s used to seeing for this series. But I really want to share the alternate cover so I’m including it here just for fun!

An alternate book cover for Mason's Regret

It might not fit well with the series, but it totally fits the story, IMO.

And you know how you’re not supposed to eat at your computer? Please don’t do that. It does not always turn out well. :D

Anyway, on to the description!

Once every three years, humans become sexual prey to a species that has no control over the urge to mate because of a devastating attraction to human scent.

It’s been three years since Mason and his twin brother were caught inside the American Protectorate and held as prisoners by the aliens everyone calls “wolves.” Mason’s brother hasn’t been the same since, and neither has Mason.

Now heat season has come again, and for reasons Mason doesn’t understand, his brother has gone back into the protectorate—and he needs Mason’s help.

Mason’s past is full of mistakes, but leaving his brother to deal with trouble alone isn’t one he’s going to make again—no matter the cost. But when wolves start howling nearby, there’s only one sane thing to do: run.

Except the only path to safety is through a terrifying alpha wolf who wants to claim Mason as his mate…

Book 8 in the Wolves’ Heat series.

New Covers for the Hend & Yurt Series

I’ve got some new covers for the Hend & Yurt series! :D

The King's Guard (Hend & Yurt, Book 1) The Queen's Lover (Hend & Yurt # 3) The King's Gambit (Hend & Yurt, Book 2)) The King's Deception (Hend & Yurt, Book 3)

I’m really pleased with them, and I hope you like them as much as I do. They look a lot like fantasy covers, but that’d be because this is very much a fantasy series—except with gay men, yummy relationships, and lots of gay sex! ;) It’s very lighthearted for the most part, with a few bits of drama here and there, but I like it and think it’s really fun.

I’ve committed to replacing these this year, so I’ll be making these new ones live very soon. :)

And then there’s this one… :) Which says Book Four, but I’m not committed to that just yet, so I’m separating it here. I might have it say “A Hend & Yurt Novel” and save the numbered books for Leon and Geran. I mean, it’s definitely coming sometime after The King’s Deception, but it isn’t Leon and Geran centric. :D

The Mage's Mark (Hend & Yurt, Book 4)

My god. I just wish I could write faster. I have so many books I want to write!

Ideas for a Redesign of the Wolves’ Heat Book Covers

I’m playing with the idea of a redesign for the covers for the Wolves’ Heat series. But… I kind of like the style of the current covers, without people on them. Then again, I really like handsome fellas on books covers, because it’s possible I’m a bit shallow like that even though I try not to be. There’s just something about a man’s body that really attracts my eye… ;)

So, here are a few ideas I’ve got for Ian’s Choice, Devon’s Gamble, & Brendan’s Fate. I’m just not settled on the idea and I really need to be because I have to decide before next month when I’m planning to get Gerald’s Lot out and that cover needs to be done ASAP.

THESE ARE SAMPLES ONLY. Definitely not ready for distribution anywhere but here. :)

Some of the text is identical, when it definitely shouldn’t be.

Feeling any love for these? Prefer the way things are? Feel free to let me know in the comments. :)

Of Monsters and Love Cover War!

I’m not usually so indecisive with covers, but I’ve got three potential covers for Of Monsters and Love, the next New Canton Republic book, and although I kind of know which one I like best, I’m not absolutely sure which one is best for the series.

Choosing the first cover (smoke) will mean it’s time for an update to all of the covers for the series, but it might be worth it. :D

But here they are. I’m calling them 1 (smoke), 2 (armpit), & 3 (bossy).

If you have a preference, I’d love it if you left a vote in the comments for the one you think I should use! :)

Here’s an update: In the end I went with something else altogether. I couldn’t decide and figured maybe that meant something about the covers I had to choose from. I hope you like the new, official cover, and thank you so much for commenting on the covers above!

Of Monsters and Love (New Canton Republic #5)

I’ll admit, the cover does give a few clues about the book! ;)

Of Monsters and Love Has a Cover

Here’s the cover for the upcoming Of Monsters and Love, which is the next book in the New Canton Republic series. (Book 5! I can’t believe it. I never imagined a few years ago that I’d write so many stories. But the more stories I write, the more of them I want to write, and I can already tell I’ll never have enough time to write them all.)

Of Monsters and Love book cover

(I had a change of heart on this cover, but I think I’ve settled on this one!) (Or maybe not. I’m thinking of changing it again!)

I’m seriously going to do my best to have this book out by the end of January 2016. I know it’s been a while since the last book in the series and I’d like it to be obvious I haven’t abandoned it. I have way too many story ideas to do that! :)

Salvadore’s Luck has a cover!

Salvadore’s Luck has a cover—finally. :) I updated the book page but here it is if you want to see it.

Salvadore's Luck (Wolves' Heat book 5)

I’m worried the cover is a little hard to read but I do like it. It looks great on my Kindle. Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s going to look so great on amazon because it’ll be small and when it’s small the text fades into the background.

I’m thinking about having some “people” covers made for the series. What do you think? Should I go for it, or are the current covers fine the way they are? I actually don’t like the idea of putting faces to my fellas or even body types because I have very definite ideas of what they look like, and I don’t want that to interfere with what you might think they look like, but… I do love a well-shaped man on a book cover!

Anyway, I’m so glad to say the book is coming soon. I’ve had several delays that I didn’t expect, but it’s almost ready!

My new cover for Of Mates and Barters!

Of Mates and Barters is going to be available in just a couple of days, but I’m excited about the new cover so I decided to go ahead and post it tonight. :) I’m really happy with it! This could be my new favorite.

Of Mates and Barters

Lots of purple, but there’s a reason for that. :)

I gotta say, I love this book. I’m partial to my own stories though, so it’s doubtful I can be objective about any of my books. I love them all! ;)
