Why Can't You Find My Books?

Sorry that I've been quiet lately; lots has happened to keep me busy: work, recovering from holidays, book things.

Most of my work is published through Rocky Ridge Books, an imprint started by friends who built a co-op, trading work, but also retaining creative control of our novels. I didn't put all my eggs in one basket, and have published works with several publishers over the years. Several went out of business, so the rights to the works returned to me, and I republished through Rocky Ridge.

Four of my novels and one short story remained with Dreamspinner Press. I looked up one day and realized all contracts had expired, so I regained control, am brushing up the works, and will soon republish second editions through Rocky Ridge.

Until that time, you might not be able to find these following titles:

The Wish
Valentine Wish
A Matter of When
Naked Tails

All of these will release again soon, so if you've been looking for them, keep a watch here and I'll post republish dates.

On another note, Decision (Diversion 8), is now with the formatter, and I'll announce a release date soon.

Consorts of the Red King Now Available at Audible

There are a lot of distinct voices in Consorts of the Red King, many of them alien beings. It takes an amazing performer to manage so many complete personalities. As much as I love Darcy Stark's narration of the Diversion series, with Consorts he took a difficult task and makes it look easy.

I believe all you The Sentinel fans will love his take on Connell and Stone.

Don't take my word for it, grab a copy at Audible and listen for yourselves!

In deepest space the ruthless Federation lays waste to one rebel colony after another, leaving comrades-in-arms Van Orskey and Tayn Kassik without family, without a home, and without hope.

With nothing left but each other, they run contraband and smuggle fugitives from the safety of their ship, the Cormorant—with the occasional clandestine mission for the rival Coalition thrown in. Their heists have not gone unnoticed, though even the bounty on their heads doesn’t prevent them from being a thorn in the enemy’s side at every opportunity.

Pissing them off? Big mistake.

From the day of his birth Prince Jorvik of Akiak learned duty, wisdom, and honor from his father, leaving him ill-equipped to withstand betrayal by his Federation-puppet uncle. He has no love for the greedy off-worlders who plunder his world’s natural resources and enslave his people. To defeat his foe, he needs the cunning, fearlessness, and touch of treachery only outlaws can offer.

Two off-world mercenaries make unlikely partners in Jorvik’s quest for vengeance, but the more he learns of them, the more common ground he discovers. In each other’s arms they find passion, heat, and maybe, a reason for living—until their common enemy threatens to tear them apart.

To survive, they must take on the corrupt Federation.

And win.

This novel features characters and the universe of The Sentinel.

The Rainbow Awards announced winners Sunday, 12/8/19, and I'm thrilled to say that Suspicion (Diversion 7) won third place for Best Gay Romantic Suspense!

Super-talented Tara Lain took first place honors with The Case of the Sexy Shakespearean, followed by Amy Lane's A Few Good Fish. What good company to keep!

Most of the series installments received Honorable Mention or better, with Corruption taking top honors back in 2014.

Christmas With Bo and Lucky

After many years of trying, it looks like Bo and Lucky of the Diversion series might get to spend Christmas together.


Lucky has dreamed of an old-fashioned Christmas with Bo for years. Unfortunately, something always got in the way. This year is looking unusually promising, though, if they can keep well-intentioned family and work from spoiling the magic of the season. Their first Christmas together will set the bar for years to come, which means blending their favorite traditions and taking the best of both.

Last minute shopping? Bo’s list. Holiday junk food? Lucky’s. Nostalgic Christmas songs? Bo’s. Hiding to avoid the dreaded office Christmas party? Not Bo’s. And while Lucky is up for compromise, he’s got something extra special planned for his partner, something a little bit naughty and whole lot nice.

Get your free copy of Tradition (Diversion 7.2) at Bookfunnel. No email collection required.
