A Year of Life Rolls

It's been a tough year for me, but I wanted to make sure to go out with a new single-shot story for your holiday enjoyment. I'm back from my sanity-check break, I'm writing every day, and looking forward to having more new fiction for you all in 2014!

Currently Writing:

I'm just over halfway through the novel Empire's Shadow, which is a prequel to Scent and Shadow. It's about how Isolde met Paul and Gabriel in Roman Britain, and the events that led up to her becoming a vampire. Also, I have a short story with a new type of monster coming soon.

August's New Release: The Broadcast Out of Time

New Weird Fiction

** June's New Release: "The Granary Angel"
New for June is a creepy little weird fiction short story. "The Granary Angel" was inspired by a tour I took in Boston a few years ago. It was a great tour, but I scared the other tourists with my macabre knowledge (and gallows humor). The main tour guide was pretty entertained, though.

Steffi works on a nighttime graveyard tour in Boston. Recently she’s become obsessed with the statue of an angel at the Granary Burying Ground. The problem: there are no angel statues in that graveyard…and the angel no one else can see appears to be equally obsessed with Steffi.

Available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and Smashwords.

** Play and Obey
The ten-story anthology Play and Obey also released late in May. It contains all the stories in What I Want and Kink On Command, but for less money!

Available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and Smashwords.

** Lookin' Ahead
Next month I'll have a new erotic gay male Aether Vitalis story featuring some all-new paranormal creatures. I'm also planning a five-story erotic gay male Aether Vitalis anthology which will release at the same time. July ought to be hot!

May's New Releases

Hey all! This month I have two new anthologies for you.

The first is Kink On Command: Five Erotic D&s Tales:

These five Just For Kinks short stories of dominance and submission will leave you begging for more. Contains explicit sex.
THE SUB FAIRY: Married bliss gets a kinky twist when one woman finds the courage to ask her husband to be her dom. Can dominance and submission find a place in their life?
WHEN IN ROME: Lovers Suzi and Myriah have had enough of their roommate Kimbra’s irksome behavior and decide to teach her a lesson—which is exactly what Kimbra has secretly been hoping for.
ENCORE: All Derrick wants is a nice subby roadie girl, but when bandmate Nate is willing to give BDSM a try, the guys discover a new favorite rainy-day activity.
HUSBAND’S LITTLE HELPER: Samantha and Ron’s 1950s-ish life style strikes some as misogynistic, but for them it’s about more than just sexual thrills.
CARE PACKAGES: When Shayla has to go out of town, Tamika doesn’t let a little distance stop her from keeping her submissive in line, courtesy of a very special care package.

Available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and Smashwords.

The second is called What I Want: Five Kinky Tales:

The characters in these five Just For Kinks short stories don’t shy away from what they want. Contains explicit sex.
FLOGGERS LAST LONGER THAN FLOWERS: Galina's looking for a date with more backbone, but is she ready to submit completely when she meets up with sexy top Stefan?
PIT STOP: A man with a vivid imagination has an unexpected encounter in a gas station bathroom.
WHEN THE BOUGH RAKES: Dillon’s a solitary masochist with who’s found a unique solution to his needs—a pine grove in a windy valley on his parents’ property. But when Dillon comes home for his first visit since starting college, his secret is discovered by a handsome new neighbor.
GOOD NEIGHBORS: All this woman wants is some sleep…until she hears her neighbors through the motel room wall.
BOUND BEHIND GLASS: Talia’s done kinky role-playing before, but she’s never had sex in public—and certainly not in front of a crowd of strangers. But when she’s hired to demonstrate her friend’s sex machine at a private kink party, she discovers a brand new kink of her own…and utter subjugation under the hands at the machine’s controls. 

Available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and Smashwords.

The Best Laid Plans...

I'll have another anthology with all the stories in What I Want and Kink On Command out in a couple weeks. A friend of mine died and I just didn't get the cover done in time. Stay tuned.

Lookin' Ahead...

Coming in June is a short weird fiction tale set in Boston called "The Granary Angel." It takes place at the Granary Burying Ground and was inspired by a tour I took there a few years ago.

New Aether Vitalis Short Story

Hey all! This month's new story, Nine Nights in Haiti, is now available.

"In Haiti, the newly dead have nine days to make their goodbyes before the psychopomp Baron Samedi escorts them to their final reward. So when the ghost of a foreigner witnesses the raising of a zombie, he knows there isn’t a moment to lose. Can he figure out how to hijack a soulless body before the loa comes for him?"

Available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and Smashwords.

Holy cow, I'm going to a con.

If you're going to be in the Madison area on April 12 and 13, you can come see me at Odyssey Con. I'll be on three panels: "Madison Horror" on Fri, and on Sat I'll be on "What Happened to Ghosts?" and "History of Werewolves." Should be fun!

Lookin' Ahead...

May should see the release of three new anthologies: two five-story Just for Kinks anthologies, and one ten-story Just for Kinks anthology. The ten-story will have the same stories as the two five-story ones, but with a slight discount. I'll also have a new short story.

Last month I also sneakily published my first short anthology, A Taste of Mercy.

A Taste of Mercy includes the following short stories:
EMPUSA: A Greek daimon whose lovers usually don't live to tell the tale sinks her teeth into a trio of love spells…and the Greek household who cast them.
THE POWER THAT DREAMS HAVE: A woman finds safety in the arms of the daimon who is slowly killing her when Xerxes descends on ancient Athens.

A KISS BEFORE COFFEE: A terminally ill woman travels to the Asclepion of Kos to petition the god in person.
