More free books, and a guest post

A couple weeks back, JMS Books and many of their authors offered a lot of books for free for everyone who needed a little pick-me-up during these difficult times. And since things are even worse these days, they’re doing it again.

Almost 100 books are free this time around, mostly different ones than last time. Including my own Nobody Else’s.

Mars enters Pisces, giving Beckett Cooper the opportunity to assert himself when it comes to a secret infatuation; his best friend’s younger brother Levi. But can Beckett trust what’s in front of him and be brave enough to take what he wants?

With Venus in Virgo, people usually become more reserved, but Levi Byrne always takes the opposite road of what’s expected of him. So, instead of pulling back, he reaches out for a man he’s been interested in for years; Beckett Cooper.

Is it the celestial bodies aligning to bring together two people destined for each other? Or is it a simple tale of boy meets boy, boy likes boy, and boy wants to kiss boy? Do Beckett and Levi even care, or are they too busy getting to know each other … and falling in love?

I wrote a guest post for Love Bytes Reviews last week, titled “I’m not here, this isn’t happening.” The title is a line from one of my favorite songs in the whole wide world How to Disappear Completely by my favorite band in the whole wide world Radiohead, and in it I talk a little about how I manage during this pandemic and about the projects I’m currently working on (writer- and non-writer related). Check it out.

Guest posts and takeovers

I thought I’d update you on my upcoming activity all across the internet so you know where you can find me other than on this blog.

Today, I have a guest post over at Love Bytes Reviews, where I rant about social media. Check it out and tell me what you think. I will also participate in Love Bytes 6-year anniversary celebration in their Facebook group on April 8, at 00:30EDT, so if you’re a night owl, this is the perfect time to come and keep me company.

I’m also participating in R.J. Scott’s autism awareness blog hop during April. My post will be up here on the my blog on April 27, but until then you can check out her blog and keep up with all the other fabulous authors who also participate.

On April 6, at 5PM EDT, I’ll be over in Drea Roman’s Facebook group, Drea’s Dirty Divas for a 30-minute takeover, to celebrate Drea’s birthday.

On April 20, at 9AM EDT, I’ll be in Noah Steele’s Facebook group Noah’s Dream Hive for takeover to celebrate his upcoming release Fighting For Love.

Finally, I’ll be in Vicki’s Vixens, VL Locey’s Facebook group, for another author takeover to celebrate a new release on April 28, 10:30 EDT.

Phew. Lots of stuff going on in April…as though doing Camp NaNoWriMo wasn’t enough 😀

I hope I’ll see you around.

Guest blogging

Lately, I’ve been popping my head up at other sites, guest posting. I already told you about the post over at Joyfully Jay on January 21 (click here if you missed it) where I talked about five things I did when I wrote Awakenings & French Songs.

Since then, I visited Jackie Keswick’s blog on February 1. At Jackie’s place, I talked about in which way me and Iggy Wilker from Awakenings & French Songs are alike. And now I bet you wonder what a middle-aged Swedish introverted woman has in common with a fictional gay party boy? If you want to know, you’ll have to click here to read the post.


On February 3, I was at Love Bytes. Back in January, Dani from Love Bytes wrote a post on Facebook asking authors if we wanted to contribute a monthly guest post to their site, and I said I was interested. We were many who were interested so we have to play nice and share the space which means one guest post every other month instead of every month. Which is totally fine with me, because I never know what to write in these things anyway, so I’m more than happy to share the space. February 3 was my first post, where i wrote about finding home. Check it out here if you’re interested. My next time will be on April 3, so I have a couple months to figure out what to write about 😁


…which is technically not true, because I’ve signed up for a guest post on Diverse Reader for February 16, the release day of Snowed In: Nen and Anani. But let’s not think about that right now… 😁


Speaking of Snowed In. It’s only one week until release day and you can still pre-order it if you haven’t already!

WIP teaser and guest post

One of the new things here on the blog now that I’m trying to produce regular content, is a teaser from current WIP. I’ve mentioned it earlier here, and it’s the May/December project I’m teasing from. It’s still untitled and I haven’t written a lot more since I told you about it (I’m traveling and I’ve had to prioritize writing my chapters in the collab project I’m working on with Kris T. Bethke.)

If you need a reminder, the story is about two neighbors called Buck and Pippin. They’ve known each other since Pippin was six, but now that he’s all grown up, things are starting to happen. This is the (unedited) beginning of the story.

I see him immediately as I turn my truck onto our street. Huddled up under a threadbare blanket, he’s curled into a ball at the top of the stairs leading up to the tiny, rundown house he shares with his mom. He has a paperback book open on his lap and he uses the flashlight on his cell phone so he can see to read since it’s still dark outside.

I frown and grip the steering wheel until my knuckles whiten. It’s too cold for him to sit there. It’s the second week of January, and even though we still haven’t gotten any snow—it was our first green Christmas in years—the temperature hovers in the low thirties. Even in the dim light, I can see him shiver.

With a huff, I park on my driveway, throw open the door, and step out. “Hey Pippin,” I holler, and his head shoots up. How he missed the rumble of my truck is a mystery, but he tends to shut out everything around him when he’s got his nose in a book.

His generous mouth stretches in a wide smile and he raises his hand in a wave.

“Get your butt over here,” I call.

He pulls the blanket tighter around his narrow shoulders. “I’m okay. You must be tired after your shift.”

I roll my eyes, not caring that he can’t see me. That guy! He doesn’t wanna be a bother but doesn’t realize that he never is. Not when I first moved back in with my ma to take care of her when she was sick—I was twenty-two and he was six the first time I found him on the stairs because his mother had a “gentleman caller” as Ma used to call them—and not now.

“Don’t make me come get ya, Pippin Olander. That’ll make me grumpy for sure.” I cross my arms over my chest and glare at him, but that only makes him laugh.

Imp.


Just one thing before I go: today, I’m a guest over at Joyfully Jay where I talk about Awakenings & French Songs. I’m giving you an insight into a writer’s life and share an excerpt from the story exclusive for Joyfully Jay. There’s also a giveaway.

Interview with yours truly

Yesterday, I was lucky enough to be a guest at J. Scott Coatsworth‘s blog and I answered a few questions, so it’s the perfect opportunity for you to get to know me a little better if you’re interested in that sort of thing. I’m also giving away a copy of Cinnamon Eyes, and share a picture of the guy who inspired the looks for MC Asher in the story.

Click this link and you’ll be transported over to the right place and can check out the hot guy.

And if you haven’t read anything by J. Scott Coatsworth, I can recommend his latest release, The Bear at the Bar. Let’s just say that I’m really glad that what happens to Dex in that short story haven’t happened to me…so far. Even though the outcome was positive, the experience must have been…unsettling 🙂

Anyway. Make sure to visit his blog and read my interview if you wanna find out who I’d fuck, marry, and kill of my characters…and much more 🙂
