Happy New Year!

blowing it cover kate aaron mm gay lgbt romanceYes, I was a bad blogger in December. I’m working furiously on the Blowing It prequel which is coming out this month (Jan 2016). Title and cover coming soon!

2015 was an incredible year. Not only did I emigrate from the UK to the US and get married, I completed my Puddledown Mysteries trilogy with The Poison Pen in April, and started a new series with Blowing It and its sequel, Balls Up. I have big plans for that world in the forthcoming year. The first prequel, told from Ryan’s POV, will be released in January, with a second and third book to follow. The third book from Owen’s POV is also in the works, and after that I have something in mind for Shane and Kieran, and maybe another character you haven’t been introduced to yet. Each new POV will be based on a different couple, and will read as a stand-alone series in the Blowing It universe.

blowing it cover kate aaron mm gay lgbt romance

Owen Barnes never expected writing to make him rich, much less with a YA novel written for a bet. Being nominated for the Carnegie Medal, the most prestigious award a children’s author can win, is a dream come true. But Owen’s newfound fame comes at a price, and not just changing his surname to Black.

Gruff, gentle building surveyor Magnus Cassidy is the first man to catch Owen’s interest in almost two years. Owen’s agent, Max, might be trying to control his image, but Magnus sees the real Owen: the eyeliner, drainpipe jeans, and sexy underwear, not the Young Conservative in a tweed jacket Max is turning him into.

When a photo of Owen and Magnus appears online, just weeks before the Carnegie ceremony, Max starts damage limitation. Out and proud since he was fourteen, Owen isn’t going back into the closet without a fight, and he refuses to let his agent erase Magnus from his life. Encouraged by his friends, Owen lashes out, not realising his behaviour could hurt the man he’s doing it all for. Can Owen find a way to reconcile his public and private lives, or has he already blown it?

Contents: passive tops and slutty bottoms, bitchy best friends, bad jokes, sexy underwear, an excess of beards, and a smattering of angst. May contain nuts.

 

✭✩✭✩✭Praise for Blowing It✭✩✭✩✭:

Being A Good Blogger: An Experiment

I’ve had this blog well over four years now, and I’m quite proud of it. I enjoy having my own space in which to rant or celebrate or discuss the news of the day. I can spend hours playing with widgets and plugins and colour schemes. What I don’t do is blog consistently, and I know that’s a mistake. Since switching to WordPress a couple of years ago, I’ve been watching my stats and know on any given day there are 50 people on my blog, even when I haven’t posted anything new in a month. I always feel a little bit guilty when I see that, even if those numbers are small fry in the blogging world 😀 Continue reading →
