Resolutions

I love New Years resolutions, partly because I'm nuts and enjoy torturing myself. Here they are:

Stop eating treats! All treats! No ice cream, cookies, cakes, pancakes, any kind of cake, jelly beans, jelly babies, any kind of jelly anything. No stuff which the major ingredient is sugar! I have abused this evil crap for far too long and find I need to learn how to live without it.

I must go to the gym just a little more than I have lately. Physical fitness is a little different at this age.

I must stop the self deprecating voice in my head. I am NOT lazy you effing bastard living in my head!

Make new friends.

Write the Pump books and my YA. I will.....AM doing this! I am!

Push my writing further! Reach just that much more. Don't play it safe!

Be your own cheerleader and stop being everyone else's. Bottom line is, those people don't deserve my good-natured cheering. Fuck'em.

Basically, I will stop stress eating and believe in myself. Easy, right?
Not for me but I am …

Excerpt for Adam Resurrected from the Siren website.

STORY EXCERPT
The night was uncommonly warm for early fall and the street eerily quiet, even for a weekday, Adam noticed as he locked the door to his apartment he shared with Emerico. The only thing he could hear was the distant rush of the river Ebro, one of the largest in Spain that ran along the city’s edge. A warm gust of air raced across his face as he opened the last button on his long-sleeved Henley T-shirt, the wrong choice for a brisk walk to Jose’s, Adam’s cousin and the most recent mortal member of the Fraternidad. He shoved up his sleeves and tucked his hands into the front pockets of his Levi’s and watched and listened for any danger lurking in the side streets or dark recesses of the ancient street. Romans, Arabs, and Jews alike lived and worked in this section of the city. But one group that had consistently remained was vampires. They had lived and hunted along the river when the first humans settled, and they stayed and thrived, creating a place for their kind alongside h…

Four Star Review for The Count of Aragon.

In my inbox.

After a totally shitty day, I get this in my Inbox! Not so shitty after all.

Release day for The Count of Aragon.

I love release day. It is full of hope and optimism mixed in with a dash of fear and self doubt. I hope you love this story as much I loved writing it.

Story and Adult Excerpts from The Count of Aragon

“What’s up?” Adam asked, watching the muscle in Emerico’s jaw twitch. And is Leandro actually growling? “The Romani has declared war,” Emerico stated, stopping his jaw from dancing for only an instant. “We have found out that, tonight, they plan on killing vampires and humans alike by choosing the method, bathing by fire.” “You mean like the same way that I saw the other night outside the bar?” Jose asked, his voice jumping a few octaves. “Exactly,” Emerico answered. “They carry liquid accelerants with them, usually in a backpack or bag of some kind, and whip it out at the opportune moment. They click their fingers to make a spark and poof, up in smoke.” Adam swallowed. “They can click their fingers and start a fire?” This time Leandro answered what Adam had already figured out. “Just about. And the stronger ones can throw fireballs. Constantin…Nicu.” “Can you two do that? Throw fireballs?” Adam prayed that they…

Writing or Hiding?

Cover for The Count of Aragon.

Yesterday I received the cover for the first in my new paranormal m/m erotic romance series, The Count of Aragon and I absolutely love it! I was nervous due to a new cover artist was now designing my covers but, as you can see, I worried for nothing. What do you think?

Busy

Unfortunately, I have been a little busy with life and writing to actually write on my blog. Sorry. I love that I'm a busy writer but I hate ignoring my blog. Let's see, hmm, I will fill you in. Did first round of edits for The Count of Aragon set to release on October 4th. (My first paranormal!) Completed the second in the Aragon Series and submitted with good news.(Yippee!!!) Now I'm working on the third in that same series (Whew!) while plotting the 5th in the Heat Series. As you can see I've been a busy boy. I am also trying to go to the gym and have a life. (Not so successful on those endeavors.) Do you now understand why I have been ignoring my blog? You can always find me at Facebook.

Story excerpt from Siesta Heat:
STORY EXCERPT
Derek let out a whistle. “When you said boat, I pictured something powered by two oars. This is seriously one hell of a ride.” Cody laughed. “You are more than welcome to paddle your ass around in the gulf in a dingy, but you’ll have to do that on your own because I won’t be joining you.” “This will suit me just fine,” Derek returned with a wink, lifting a small cooler held in his hand. “I packed a few drinks and a couple of PowerBars, but I have a feeling this baby is fully stocked with something better than protein bars. Cody nodded. “Our maid took care of…

Cody nodded. “Our maid took care of it already.” “Oh, she did, did she? Well, I packed this myself. The maid had the day off,” Derek joked. “Here,” he said, handing it over. Through the safety of his sunglasses, Cody took the cooler but focused instead at Derek’s perfectly round, meaty shoulder and sinewy arm attached to the cooler, covered in a down …
