New Release: For the Love of a Soldier, edited by Kristina Wright

Hi everyone,

I’m delighted to announce the release of For the Love of a Soldier, a collection of military erotic romance stories, edited by Kristina Wright and published by Circlet Press. It contains my story, Failure to Launch.

Here’s the blurb:

Sixteen stories of passion with soldiers, sailors, pilots, and men (and women) of war. When you love someone serving in the military, love can be fraught and erotic opportunities few or far between. These authors, veterans of the erotica and romance writing world, turn their pens to the subject with insightful and sizzling portrayals of those in (and out of…) uniform.

As editor Kristina Wright writes in her introduction, “When I married my sailor many years ago…the message was clear: duty to military service comes before duty to marriage. Moments. Hours. Days. Occasionally, weeks… That’s how romances with military lovers are measured—in the smallest of increments, because no time together is ever guaranteed.” The result is red-hot reunions and no-holds-barred passion in the precious time that is shared.

2013 Round Up!

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and are looking forward to fun New Year celebrations. While I am looking forward to 2014 and what it will bring, I’d also like to reflect on 2013 and what I achieved. I don’t often blow my own trumpet, so it’s cool to remind myself of what I’ve done. Here are a few highlights, in no particular order:

My total publication count was 30, which includes print and eBooks. This is the same total as last year, but I’m definitely not beating myself up over that, because I’ve had much longer stuff released and have been working on more novellas and novels. I also don’t count reprints.

I also totted up my word count. This includes works not yet finished or submitted, as well as published works, and I achieved a whopping 377,041 words this year. I’m very proud of that, especially since I don’t write full-time, and I don’t even write every day.

Here’s a photo of the paperbacks I’ve been in this year – click the image to enlarge.



All in all, it’s been an awesome 2013! I already have books lined up for 2014 so it’s already off to a promising start. I’m looking forward to it.

Happy New Year!

New Release: Duty and Desire – Military Erotic Romance

Duty and Desire: Military Erotic RomanceWhen the fabulous Kristina Wright put out a call for submissions for a military erotic romance anthology, I couldn’t say no. As regular readers to this blog will know, I’m a sucker for a man in uniform – especially military uniform!

And so, I wrote a very British story, called Passing Out Passion. A passing out parade in the UK is basically a ceremony and a gathering that happens when new recruits successfully complete their basic training. I picked this theme because I wanted it to be different, and it must have worked because the story was accepted! It forms part of the delicious Duty and Desire anthology, which is available now in the States and will be coming to British shores in the next few weeks.

I’m looking forward to receiving my author copies so I can stroke that lovely man. Isn’t he yummy!?

Get your copy of Duty and Desire here.

Love uniforms? Check out my previous post for your chance to win a copy of my anthology, Uniform Behaviour!

Evil Plans and Stuff…

Evil Plans and StuffYou like my notebook? Me too… it was a gift from the lovely Kay Jaybee and when I was thinking about writing this blog post, I couldn’t resist snapping a photo of it to include. It seemed fitting, somehow 😉

So, I’ve been mega busy just lately with various projects on the Writer Marketing Services side of things, and have also been squeezing in some serious writing time, too. As a result, I haven’t posted an update on here for a while, so I thought I would let you in on a few exciting bits of news…

Firstly, I just finished (literally, this evening) the first draft of a long short story (hey, almost 12k is long for me) which will be the start of a series, if it’s accepted. I’m aiming it at a particular publisher, who I won’t name just in case I jinx it! But rest assured, you will have more information as and when there’s anything to tell. It’s called A Taste of London, and I think the title gives you a fair hint as to what it might be about. Want to know more? Check out the Pinterest board I created for it.

Secondly, there’s lots of news concerning uniforms! Mmm, my favourite! Anyway, I found out recently that Uniform Behaviour is going to be available in paperback from the end of August, woohoo! I’m told it will be available worldwide, but at the moment, there’s only a pre-order link up on Amazon UK, so feel free to place your order, or if you’re feeling like giving the book some “like” and tag love, I’ll be forever grateful.

Another piece of uniform-related news – I just had an email from Kristina Wright to say that my short erotic romance story, Passing Out Passion was accepted for her upcoming Duty & Desire: Military Erotic Romance anthology, which will be coming out in the autumn. Hurrah! 😀

Finally, I just wanted to post a quick reminder about the two anthologies I’m co-editing with Victoria Blisse. We’re still seeking submissions for Smut by the Sea (closing date 1st June) and Smut in the City (closing date 1st August). We’re hoping to launch the books (they’ll be available in print, too) at The Book Show in Luton in September. Check out the website for more details. It sounds like it’s going to be a fantastic event!

Happy Monday!

Hi everyone! Well, it’s not even lunchtime on a Monday and already it’s shaping up to be an exciting week! After last week’s holiday (tons of photos on Facebook for those who are interested) I’m now busily catching up on various things to do with my writing as well as doing client work. But this morning’s excitement has been caused by the following:

A Bit of Rough

My first Noble Romance publication, A Bit of Rough, is now available! I’m really excited to be working with Noble who so far have been great. And, as you can see, they do great covers! *rawr* Find out more about A Bit of Rough here, or go directly to its page on Noble Romance and get your grubby hands on it. It’s also on Goodreads, so don’t forget to add it to your bookshelves!

Dream Lover: Paranormal Tales of Erotic Romance

Secondly, my author copy of Dream Lover: Paranormal Tales of Erotic Romance arrived! My first Cleis Press publication, edited by Kristina Wright. My story, Succubus Comes Home features with stories from greats such as Justine Elyot, Shanna Germain, Saskia Walker, Nikki Magennis and Kate Pearce to name but a few – so I’m incredibly excited and honoured to be a part of it. I can’t wait to start reading! I believe it’s widely available in the States already, but UK peeps will have to wait until later in the month, but you can pre-order on Amazon.

Now, where are my copies of Best of Both? *taps foot impatiently*

Happy Monday, everyone!
