Ace

So, This Happened

ace-300x255 So, This Happened

 

I can’t believe it. Ace was a year old at the end of September, and I decided to run a promotion. Those who bought a copy, thank you! It was an incredible couple of days, and making #1 LGBT book on Amazon.com was such a thrill.

TheSlave-horz-300x224 So, This HappenedComing 27 October – The Slave and The Soldier, books 1 and 2 in my Free Men series. Book 3, The Master, is coming 24 November.

The Slave is available for pre-order now from Amazon, iTunes, and Barnes&Noble.

On release day both titles will also be available from Smashwords and AllRomance.

The first review of The Slave is in, courtesy of the awesome Kazza at On Top Down Under (warning, link images NSFW). She gave it five glorious stars, saying, “Fantastic fantasy and sexy as sin, The Slave is just that little bit different and highly addictive.”

MATCH-cover-200x300 MATCH - Sequel to ACE - Now Live! #mmromance #gayromance

 

Whatever happened to Brian Scagill? 

A year after his dramatic exit from England’s Grand Slam tournament, Brian has all but disappeared from the world of professional tennis, and doesn’t intend to return. He’s made a life for himself with fellow athlete Lexi Horvat, far removed from the dual pressures of fame and family.

A surprise wildcard might be his last chance to play on an international stage, and Brian’s life is thrown into tumult once again. This time, however, he’s not alone. Lexi has secured himself a place in the tournament, as has Jared, a young player the two men have been coaching. With his loved ones accompanying him, Brian agrees to play. Lexi promises they’ll take on the tournament together, as a team, but Brian knows better than anyone that on the grass, it’s every man for himself.

New gay romance – ACE #mmromance #gayromance

Yes, squeeeeeee, my baby lives. Ace is now available from ARe, B&N, Kobo, and Smashwords. Coming soon everywhere else.

(Note to self: publishing on Friday 13th is a fool’s game. That superstition exists for a reason. If you publish on Friday 13th, Amazon are guaranteed to lose your book in their systems, show everyone clicking the link a blank page, and be unable to assist when you plead with them for help. Lesson, learned.)

(ETA – the Amazon link is now working. Finally!)

ace-cover-685x1024 New gay romance - ACE #mmromance #gayromance

At twenty-two years old, World No.6 and England’s No.1, Brian Scagill has the tennis world at his feet. Last year’s semifinalist, this year Brian enters England’s biggest tournament determined to win. A Grand Slam on home turf is calling to him and he’s not going to let anything stand in the way of victory – certainly not a cute Croatian who doesn’t even play in the same league.

84,000 words. Coming soon in paperback!

Holiday!

As Madonna once said. #Earworm

I have a boarding card in my grubby mitts and I’m officially checked in for my flight tomorrow (Manchester to Inverness, I really shouldn’t be so excited about it). The entire series of Ace is now live across Amazon, ARe, RainbowEbooks and Smashwords, and trickling through various suppliers to all my other outlets – check out my link page for more info.

While I’m away, I have plans. You may have noticed the little counter on the right —> 8k into an 85k target for Match, the second novel in Brian and Lexi’s story. I expect that number to increase dramatically upon my return.

For those who haven’t followed the series, hang on to your pants because the complete collection of Ace is being published as a full novel (84,000 words) on 13 September 2013. More details when I return!

Until then… happy reading!

What’s Going On?

As Four Non-Blondes once said 😉

I haz news, my sweets. Ace continues to release, with Parts Six, Seven and Eight coming in the next three weeks. Some of the eagle-eyed among you may have noticed Part Eight will be available a day early, from 01 September. That wasn’t a typo, as on that date I shall be boarding a plane and flying to my little croft in Scotland for my annual hermitage. I’ll be there until about the 10th, give or take, so it will be a bit quiet around here in the first half of the month, but fear not! – I will take my trusty writing pad and be working very hard on something entirely new… Match, the sequel to Ace.

Given my indefinite absence from such mod-cons as computers and ‘tinternet, I can’t give an exact date that the full collection of Ace will be available, but it will be around Friday 13th September (I laugh in the face of superstition!). There will be a definite announcement as soon as I’m back.

Match will be released only as a complete novel (c. 90,000 words) and I’ve got a tentative release date of mid-November, although I’ll update in more detail (cover reveal – squee!) nearer the time.

Until then, I’ll leave you with some photos I took on and around my croft last year. I can’t wait to be there again…
