Here's the blurb:

College should be a blast for Evan: Same state where he grew up, just a few hours from home, tuition is free, and there's nothing but new experiences and opportunity in front of him. All he feels is homesick, alone, and adrift. Whatever thrills his roommates eludes Evan.

He is distracted from his misery by Gabriel, who seems to come and go in the blink of eye. But he's beautiful, confident, proud—everything Evan is not. Most of all, he's a mystery, and one that Evan is determined to solve...


Release date: May 7, 2014

So Where Am I At?

Well, I'm on school vacation this week so I have a moment to sit back and take stock. Also, I'm recovering from a nasty cold that turned into bronchitis, so all those outside things I need to do can just keep waiting a little longer. And I'm without a car at the moment. My husband's van is in the shop for some bodywork this week. Vermont winters EAT cars, and the van is many years old and has something like 200,000 miles, so he's driving my new vehicle. (I drive a four wheel drive SUV with winter tires which aren't coming off until June, thank you very much.) I have to say that my husband is very much like Josh, the way they're both attached to their old, clunky vans. Josh needs his to carry his paintings in; my husband needs his to carry his drums and PA system to music gigs. But beyond that, they just kind of form bonds with clunky old vehicles. I've always thought that was a little out of character for Josh, who adores new clothes and pretty things, but when has Josh ever done what I've expected?)

(Wait, did I just say that my husband is like Josh? He would totally FLIP. But he rarely reads my blog, so it's okay. Don't get me wrong, my husband likes Josh all right, but... So does that make me like Varian? Snort. Okay, we both worry a thing to death, and I have kept my calm in some damn scary situations like car accidents and breaking up a fight between two teenage boys at school once, and I am an educator and I love history and dragons. Hmm.)

Anyway, looking forward. I've got two releases coming up, both in May. The first one is a novella from Less Than Three Press called Haunted Halls, on May 7th. It's a free standing college ghost story with twist. Then on May 28, the next in the Notice Series comes out from Torquere Press -- The Dragon and the Palm Tree. It's about what happens when Varian and Justin decide to face their fear of flying in airplanes, and Josh decides to present as female on their trip to Florida.

I feel like I've just barely gotten Another Healing all released, and here I go again! Stay tuned for more information. And I've made book trailers for both of them -- I'll be posting links when it gets closer.

Beyond that, I've got a novella called Natural Instincts submitted and I'm waiting to hear back.

Right now I'm working on my 2014 Charity Sip for Torquere, and I've started a new novel! I'm really excited about this one. It's a fresh take on an old, old story idea I've fooled around with many times over the years, and I think I've finally got it right this time. It's called Jai.

And thanks so much to everyone who is taking the time to write reviews and  friending me on Facebook and following me on Twitter. You folks are awesome, and I'm always willing to answer questions or chat any time. And I'm glad to forward any comments to Josh. As he puts it, it's all about his fans, of course.

Happy Spring!

Exhausted!

I have done a Twitter Takeover!

And it was really great. Lots of friendly folks and nice comments about my novel. It's hard to describe what an evening like that is like, chatting with people from all over the world about me and my writing. Normally, my writing life is very private and solitary. It felt really good, but kind of like I was in culture shock.

And it was a little rough at first, keeping my posts down to 140 characters and having to think fast. Normally, I'm long and slow. Then I started pretending I was at school, where I have to talk fast, briefly, and have about four conversations going at once. It all worked out.

Thank you again to everyone who was there, and thank you to those who are now following me on Twitter. I hope I don't disappoint!
