Speechless and The Gig–in Italian

I get really excited over translations of my books. It’s just so cool to see my stories in another language, even if I can’t understand that language. In total, my stories have appeared in 5 languages besides English (French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish)–which is so much fun.

So now Speechless and The Gig are available for preorder in Italian. They release February 9. The Gig is free in Italian (as it is in English), and it’s the first free story Dreamspinner has offered in Italian.

I think even if you didn’t speak the language, this would be a good way to learn. 🙂

FirstComeMarriageFSFirst Comes Marriage by Shira Anthony

Blurb: Their marriage was supposed to be all business….

When struggling novelist Chris Valentine meets Jesse Donovan, he’s interested in a book contract, or possibly a date. The last thing Chris expects is a marriage proposal from New York City’s most eligible bachelor!

Jesse’s in a pinch. To keep control of his company, he has to marry. So he has valid reasons for offering Chris this business deal: in exchange for living in a gorgeous mansion for a year, playing the doting husband, Chris gets all the writing time he wants and walks away with a million-dollar payoff. Surely Chris can handle that. He can handle living with the most handsome and endearing man he’s ever met, a man he immediately knows he wants in the worst way and can’t have. Or can he?

KeptTearsFSKept Tears by Jana Denardo
Having left most of his arm and his self-confidence behind in the Afghanistan desert, young veteran Aaron Santori has enough on his plate learning to use his prosthetic arm. Attending graduate school at the University of Pittsburgh makes life both interesting and challenging. Mentally, he’s ill prepared for meeting Rhys Edwards, a young-adult novelist from Wales and everything Aaron could want in a man. Between the scars from the explosion and his PTSD, he’s reluctant to date. Ready or not, though, Aaron finds himself jumping into the deep end of the relationship waters.

What Aaron couldn’t possibly know is that Rhys isn’t human at all. As a prince of the Tylwyth Teg, Rhys is a fae with a list of enemies he’s accumulated over the past few centuries – among them a former lover, Morcant, who is back to make Rhys’s life miserable. An unwitting pawn in their Machiavellian fae politics, Aaron only knows he’s falling in love, never suspecting love might be his death sentence.

Contemporary/Historical M/M Romance

Finalist in the 2013 Rainbow Awards. Nominated Best Historical in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards. Selected as a Best Read in 2013 by Jessewave. Winner of Best M/M Romance in the 2013 PRG Reviewer’s Choice Awards. 


This couldn’t be happening. The plane couldn’t be going down.

As production assistant, David McIntyre has been enjoying the heck out of his current assignment: touring the Hawaiian Islands in search of the ideal shooting locations for a series of company projects. What’s not to like? Stunning scenery, great food, sunny beaches…and indulging in his crush on his hot pilot-for-hire, Rick Sutton.

Everything changes when a tropical storm and engine failure force a crash landing on a deserted atoll somewhere in the South Pacific. Sutton’s injuries and a lack of food and water make rescue imperative, but it takes an intensely vivid dream about the Battle of Britain to make David see that Rick is more than just a pilot to him. Will David gather his courage to confess his feelings to Rick—before it’s too late?

GA Final 101515Gone Away by Elizabeth Noble



Mason Arquette isn’t one for mincing words. In fact, he often rubs people the wrong way—with the exception of Riece Burrell. Riece came with his own set of social issues, but he saw right through Mason’s tough exterior, and they made a perfect couple. Or so Mason thought… until Riece abruptly ended their relationship without much explanation.

Years later, Mason and Riece are thrown back together. As a US Forestry Service photographer, Riece is sent on assignment to the Black Hills, where Mason works. When Mason is tasked with guiding Riece around the territory, old feelings quickly are rekindled.

But nothing is ever easy. Just as Mason and Riece begin to work things out, they’re targeted by people with motives so vile and twisted they defy imagination. In a desperate race for their lives, they must depend on one another and take a big step out of their personal comfort zones to find their way back to safety—and back to love.

Newsy blog and reminders

This is a newsy sort of blog entry. How about if I post photos from San Francisco next week to balance things out?

–There’s still a little time to enter the haiku contest. Come play!

–If you haven’t voted already, I’m in the second round in several categories over here. Voting ends January 15.

–Also, if you haven’t voted already, I’ve been nominated in quite a few categories for the Goodreads M/M Romance Group’s Member’s Choice Awards. If you’re a member, go to message 47 here for links to all the voting categories. If you’re not a member, you can join for free. Voting ends January 22.

–I just signed a contract with Dreamspinner Press for Love Can’t Conquer, my 14th novel! This is an angsty one about an urban park ranger and an ex-junkie. It will release in June or July.

–I have lots of other things coming up this year: new translations, new audiobooks, a new Gothika anthology, a spec fic anthology, second editions of my Ennek trilogy… and more.

So that’s enough news for now, I think. What are you looking forward to this year? For me, it’s travel. What else is new, right?


Haiku contest!

I’ve begun my year productively, submitting my 14th novel, finishing the galley proofs on another novel, and completing the first draft of a novella. All while suffering with a cold because yes! I am that studly.

Another thing I recently did was finish listening to K.C. Kelly’s narration of Rattlesnake. I knew he’d do a wonderful job, but he actually exceeded my expectations. It’s a longish book but I did a bunch of extra walking (I only allow myself listen to audiobooks if I’m walking) just to hear him read.

I thought it would be fun to celebrate the new year and my recent productivity, and I have a copy of the Rattlesnake audiobook to give away! How can you have a chance at winning? Comment here with an m/m romance-related haiku. We’ve done this before and it was really fun. The rules:

  1. Enter by commenting here with your haiku
  2. Must conform to traditional haiku format (3 lines: 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables) as in the examples below
  3. Must have something to do with m/m romance
  4. Must be your own original work
  5. May concern m/m romance in general or include specific characters (mine or another author’s)
  6. Include your email at the end so I can reach you if you win
  7. You may enter as many times as you wish
  8. Entries close January 17 at noon, PST
  9. Entries will be evaluated by a panel of judges (yet to be determined). Winner gets the audiobook. The judges’ determination of a winner is final.
  10. Have fun and please spread the word!

Me sick. But at least my muse

Seems to be immune.

To his advantage.




It’s 2016?

Happy New Year!

After spending a good chunk of yesterday buying a new car (yay!), and being still under the influence of a cold, I went to bed at 10:30 last night. That’s how exciting I am. Both my daughters had friends spending the night. They woke me up a few minutes before midnight so we could wish each other Happy New Year, then I went back to bed.

But I also accomplished things yesterday. I finished the galley edits for the second edition of Stasis, which will release from DSP Publications in May. The new edition isn’t a huge change, but we’ve run it through several more rounds of edits to clean it up and tighten then writing. It will also have an amazing new cover by Reese Dante.

And with the assistance of my beloved beta, I got my 14th novel almost ready to submit for publication. It’s called Love Can’t Conquer, and it’s an angsty contemporary starring an urban park ranger and an ex-junkie. It’s long too–somewhere in the neighborhood of 90,000 words.

Now I have a novella to finish up for the 5th Gothika anthology (aliens!), and then a short to write for another anthology that I’m also very excited about. So 2016 shows no signs of being less busy than 2015.

Are you in the mood to do some voting? I’m really honored to have been nominated in many categories of the Goodreads M/M Member’s Choice Awards. I believe you have to be a member of the group (which you can join for free) to vote. Here’s a list of my nominations:
