I’m sorry I didn’t post yesterday on the anniversary; I must have lost my head! But today’s post will still honor the one year anniversary of my first publication, A Single Man’s Valentine, which you can win by simply leaving a comment and your email address!
So this past year has been a blast with a release and a ton of writing going on. I’m working on two different full length novels at the moment. One is over 40 thousand words! O_O The other isn’t quite as far along, less than 10 thousand, but it’s getting there.
The longer novel is m/m and about a guy that is raising his teenage sister on his own and going to college. In order for them to survive, he works six days a week as a high-end escort, catering to the wealthy men of his city. His first day of college, he meets a man that he’s instantly attracted to, but doesn’t think he has the time for with all of his responsibilities. That night, his client ends up being the guy from school. Can you imagine the drama that could cause?
As for the other novel, well, there’s not much to say at the moment without giving away everything I’ve written so far as it’s so short at the moment. All I can tell you right now is that it’s a romance (of course) with a little bit of supernatural twist, and it’s a m/f pairing.
I still can’t believe it’s been a year since my first eBook was released. I also can’t believe how well it did, especially in the first quarter. I was just hoping to get one book sold, and lets just say, I did way better than one sale. :)
I can only hope that when I finally publish my first full-length that it’ll be as successful as my first short story has been.
Because this is an anniversary post, I guess I should tell you a little bit about the book this anniversary is honoring. It’s called, A Single Man’s Valentine and you can get it at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, All Romance Ebooks, and Bookstrand. (click on the links and it’ll take you right to the book)
Kris Goodwin wants to spend his first Valentine’s Day since his divorce alone in his apartment with a case of beer. But his best friend Jake has other ideas and shows up unannounced. Jake has brought supplies for what he calls the perfect single man’s Valentine’s Day; take-out, flowers, romantic comedies and a box of chocolates.
As the evening progresses, Jake admits the harmless crush he’s had on Kris isn’t quite as harmless as he’s made it out to be. He’s actually in love with Kris. Then Kris tells Jake the real reason behind his divorce.

Thank you all for celebrating this wonderful occasion with me. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d ever be celebrating the release anniversary of something I had written. I can truly say that writing is a dream I had and now I am living it. I want to thank everyone that has made this possible for me, especially everyone at Rebel Ink Press. They have been so good to me over the past year and I can’t wait to have them take on my next project.
All the Love,
