It’s been a fact since before I was published that authors these days love reviews. It’s another fact that readers love to leave reviews — sites like Goodreads have created an entire reviewer industry out of ordinary, everyday readers. No longer do you need a doctorate in literature in order to bestow your lofty opinion from the hallowed pages of the Times Literary Supplement. These days, anyone with an internet connection can review whatever they read, however they like. Continue reading →
Proudly announcing the forthcoming release of a new trilogy: Free Men, an AU slaveworld menage. Below are the first two covers. The third novel, The Master, is remaining elusive for a little while longer.
At twenty-seven, Tamelik has been a slave more than half his life, having witnessed his family being murdered in front of him when he was just a child. Naturally submissive, although with a petulant streak, he can’t help but fall in love with the master who treats him kindly.
Tam’s dreams come true when his mistress walks out, leaving her husband behind. For six glorious months, he and his master get to be together. Then Tam is ordered to purchase another slave.
He wants to hate Kai for being unruly and ungrateful. For being of the same race as the men who murdered his family. For being his eventual replacement in their master’s bed. But it’s hard to hate a man who cries himself to sleep, flinches at the slightest touch, and blushes beautifully when he’s kissed.
Seducing Kai has suddenly become more challenge than chore, and with his master’s encouragement, Tam finds himself falling for his new companion. Except… nobody can be in love with two people at once, can they?
Three months. That’s all it took for Kai to forsake freedom and learn to love his new life as pleasureslave to a wealthy Thirskan Underlord.
Finding himself surrounded by his own people once more, Kai should have been happy: relieved to be rescued from slavery, and out of the clutches of a man who was the sworn enemy of his people. Yet his people are not how he remembers them. Distrustful of Kai, and disgusted by his relationship with not one man but two, they make it abundantly clear he no longer fits in.
Beaten, starved, and tortured, when the chance comes to escape, Kai is barely strong enough to make the journey. Even if he succeeds, how could anybody ever love the thing he’s become in order to survive? His only hope is to save his companions, even if it means throwing himself on the mercy of the wife of the man he’s grown to love.

Imagine the situation. You’ve got authors desperate for reviews on one hand, and review bloggers desperate for new books on the other. You’d think they’d talk to each other, right?
Wrong. Only this week I saw a bunch of m/m bloggers talking on Facebook about how nervous they got approaching authors to request review copies of their work. Most, it seems, have had a bad experience with at least one author who called them freeloaders and told them to go away. Then again, a week doesn’t go by I don’t see authors afraid to approach bloggers for fear of being rejected. It seems a silly situation for all parties to be in.
It might be a little early for Christmas just yet, but for the rest of December I’m offering Ace for the reduced price of $3.99 — that’s a third off! There’s never been a better time to curl up on a cold winter’s night and relive the magic and excitement of a Grand Slam tennis tournament, and watching two young men fall in love.
