Family Camp Audiobook Underway

I’m happy to announce that the audio book of Family Camp is currently being recorded by Matthew Shaw. Matthew reads my Howl At The Moon books and he also did Robby Riverton: Mail Order Bride. I’m so happy to have him voice this family-oriented rom com. Expected release date is late June to mid July. Here’s chapter 2 for a little tease. This hasn’t undergone any mastering or edits yet…..

This is a sweet, feel-good romance with little angst and lots of family feels. I think we all need a little lightness right now! I hope it makes you smile.

BLURB:

When Geo signs up for Family Camp, he envisions nature hikes, s’mores, and a chance to win over his recalcitrant new foster kids, Jayden and Lucy. He’s tried to become a dad for so long, and he hopes the three of them can be the family he’s always wanted. What he doesn’t anticipate is the prickly and gorgeous camp counselor who constantly comes to his rescue.

Travis spends a week every year at Camp Evermore, the camp his adoptive parents own. As a pro baseball player, his presence guarantees a full campground and excited campers. He has one rule: never, ever mess around with anyone at camp. His profession demands he stay in the closet. But one sweet and funny new dad is about to test all his resolve.

Sparks fly for Geo and Travis, and not because of the nightly campfire. Having been a foster kid himself, Travis is drawn to Geo’s sincerity and big heart and to his kids. The four of them just fit. But will this be a summer romance? Or can they find a way to be a family long after Family Camp is over?

About the Daddy Dearest series

This series will consist of stand-alone contemporary novels focusing on single gay dads who find hot romance.  Expect laughs, sweet and sexy slow-burn romance, and lots of family feels!

Family Camp is on the way!

My next book is due out on March 28th! Here’s the cover and blurb.

Release Day - Robby Riverton: Mail Order Bride

It's release day! This is a special book for me. There aren't many historical westerns in m/m romance, and I had put off the idea for this book figuring it was unlikely to sell well. But the idea kept poking at me and I finally decided to take the plunge and just write something for the fun of it.

I love the old historical western romances, and I had a blast writing my own version of that. I hope you will enjoy it too!  Look for blog tour stop and a giveaway posting here soon.

Robby Final 500 Trans.png

BLURB:

Being a fugitive in the old west shouldn’t be this much fun.

The year is 1860. Robby Riverton is a rising star on the New York stage. But he witnesses a murder by a famous crime boss and is forced to go on the run--all the way to Santa Fe. When he still hasn't ditched his pursuers, he disguises himself as a mail order bride he meets on the wagon train. Caught between gangsters that want to kill him, and the crazy, uncouth family of his "intended", Robby's only ally is a lazy sheriff who sees exactly who Robby is -- and can't resist him.

Trace Crabtree took the job as sheriff of Flat Bottom because there was never a thing going on. And then Robby Riverton showed up. Disguised as a woman. And betrothed to Trace’s brother. If that wasn’t complication enough, Trace had to find the man as appealing as blueberry pie. He urges Robby to stay undercover until the danger has passed. But a few weeks of having Robby-Rowena at the ranch, and the Crabtree family will never be the same again. 

COVER REVEAL - Robby Riverton: Mail Order Bride

I'm excited to be able to share with you the cover for ROBBY RIVERTON: MAIL ORDER BRIDE. It's a gay romantic comedy set in the old west. The cover was done by Dar Albert of Wicked Smart Designs. It's based on the idea of spoofing old-fashioned, western mail order bride covers. I love it!

I'm so jacked about this book. It was a ton of fun to write and beta feedback so far has been wonderful. One beta reader said "Overall, an outstanding success in my opinion - one of your best!" I hope you all will think so too.

Damn, what a kerfuffle. If only Trace can get rid of the fugitive while hanging on to his own stupid heart.

That's all folks...

April's Featured Book: THE TROUBLE WITH TONY

I'm starting a new feature here on the blog. Each month I'll focus on a backlist book and it'll be on sale.  For April the book is THE TROUBLE WITH TONY. All through April it's on sale for just .99c on Dreamspinner. HERE's THE LINK.  Keep reading for a little background on the story.

This was one of the first m/m romance stories I ever wrote, way back in 2012. It was published in 2013 by Dreamspinner.

Tony DeMarco is a private investigator in Seattle. He's looking into a young woman's death and he learns she went to a sex clinic the last few months before her murder. Did the sex clinic, or her therapist, Dr. Jack Halloran, have something to do with it?

To find out, Tony pretends to e a new patient of Jack's. At first Tony makes up a story about being a sex addict. But when Jack sees through that, Tony admits he does have a little problem. He can only have sex with specific men he's really attracted to. Only four in his life so far.

Things get complicated when Jack turns out to be #5.

This is a fun-set up that allows for a lot of humor in the book, especially since Tony is a big, wise-cracking, Italian tough-guy. There's also a mystery/investigation thread running through the book. It's fairly short at novella length, but it packs a lot in.

Eli's 3 Favorite Things about The Trouble With Tony:

1. The humor.

2. The stirrup scene (yes, OBGYN stirrups)

3. The appearances of sex surrogate Michael, who later gets his own book.

Hope you enjoy your time with Tony!  Here's the book page on this site.
