That Turtle Story cover art

That Turtle Story will be available for individual sale on December 1st 2018 at Dreamspinner Press and all third party vendors. This short story is also available for pre-order in the complete Warmest Wishes anthology package.

Blurb: Nor O’Brien spends his days in sunny Key West caring for and rehabilitating sea turtles. He doesn’t need anything else in life, expect maybe a significant other to cuddle with after a long day. But recent heartbreak has left Nor salty, and he’s not in the mood for anything, Christmas included.

Then Eugene Montgomery walks into Turtle R&R, claiming to have found a clutch of eggs in distress. Nor is smitten with the tourist at first sight, and at the suggestion of his screwball colleagues, indulges in some no-strings-attached fun. Nor and Eugene are quick to get along, happily enjoy each other’s company, and take in the island’s unique holiday pleasures together.

But Nor would never leave his turtles, not for any man. So when his rebound fling turns into strong romantic feelings for Eugene, it’ll take a Christmas miracle to keep the two together forever in Key West.

Snow & Winter 99c sale!

Book Three in the Snow & Winter series, The Mystery of the Moving Image, is on sale at Amazon for 99 cents! This sale lasts one day only, so if you've not picked up the latest Sebastian and Calvin adventure, today is a great day to do that!

Blurb: It’s summer in New York City, and antique shop owner Sebastian Snow is taking the next big step in his relationship with NYPD homicide detective, Calvin Winter: they’re moving in together. What should have been a wonderful week of playing house and celebrating Calvin’s birthday comes to an abrupt end when a mysterious package arrives at the Emporium.

Inside is a Thomas Edison Kinetoscope, a movie viewer from the nineteenth century, invented by the grandfather of modern cinema, W. K. L. Dickson. And along with it, footage of a murder that took place over a hundred years ago.

Sebastian resists the urge to start sleuthing, even if the culprit is long dead and there’s no apparent danger. But break-ins at the Emporium, a robbery, and dead bodies aren’t as easy to ignore, and Sebastian soon realizes that the century-old murder will lead him to a modern-day killer.

However, even with Sebastian’s vast knowledge of Victorian America and his unrelenting perseverance in the face of danger, this may be the one mystery he won’t survive.

Book One: The Mystery of Nevermore
Book Two: The Mystery of the Curiosities

GRL & Devil Take Me

And I'm off to GRL! By the time this post goes live I will be at the Key West airport before sunup, bleary eyed and maybe sipping less than stellar coffee while I wait to board. I will be landing in Portsmouth, VA in the early afternoon, where my fantastic friends and fellow authors, Jenna Kendrick and Felice Stevens, will pick me up on their drive in.

If you are attending GRL, I hope to see you throughout the long weekend! Here is my schedule. These are events I'm guaranteed to be at.

I will have paperbacks on sale, available at the Dreamspinner Press table for the following titles: Color of You, Southernmost Murder, The Mystery of Nevermore, The Mystery of the Curiosities, and The Mystery of the Moving Image. Supply is limited!


And Devil Take Me is live! This is the thrilling anthology, published with DSP Publications, that I had the honor of sharing the pages alongside huge urban fantasy and paranormal authors in our genre, including: Jordan L. Hawk, Ginn Hale, TA Moore, Rhys Ford, and Jordan Castillo Price. My contribution is 11:59, the journey of a soulless hero hunting monsters in New York City, birthed by the nightmares of humans. Grimy, gritty, and with a dose of Greek mythology!

Devil Take Me blurb: Temptation lurks around every corner in worlds sometimes dark, sometimes lurid. Giving in is both dangerous and satisfying, though never in the ways one expects. While these enticements offer a vast range of benefits and boons, the cost is a soul and the devil expects his due. Sometimes suave and charming or calculating and cruel, these devils have schemes and desires of their own. They can be creatures to run away from… or toward.
Join the most unique and celebrated authors of LGBT urban fantasy and paranormal fiction for a fast-paced and unpredictable ride, from a city on the other side of reality, to a world suspended in dusk, to a twisted version of the 1960s and 70s.
Meet devils in top hats and waistcoats, a defrocked motorcycle-riding priest, and a genderfluid antihero—among many more. Full of humor, romance, horror, action, intrigue, and magic, these stories have one common element….
They’re one hell of a good time.

11:59 blurb: Asuka Kawashima is a man without dreams.
Nightmares plague humanity and cross into the waking world—chasing after their dreamers and transforming them into hideous monsters that haunt New York City at night. When Asuka is faced with the choice between dying or selling his soul to the Devil, he offers it in exchange for the chance to continue protecting people. But the Devil is sly, and while he takes Asuka’s ability to dream, making him immune to nightmares, it also removed Asuka’s abstract sense of dreaming. Now life is gray, hopeless, and without wishes.
A chance meeting five years later leads Asuka to Merrick Grace, a man who, despite the dismal world around them, still believes there will be a day when monsters cease to exist. When the Devil reappears, asking for a favor in return for his soul, Asuka must make another difficult decision…
If the chance to dream again—to share a life with Merrick, full of hope and happiness—is worth the risk of almost certain death.
