Another Secret – another review!

AnotherSecret_medI was delighted to learn that Mrs Condit and Friend’s site had reviewed my dark fantasy / shifter novella, Another Secret.  In part she said:

“While approaching Drew’s house, he finds that Drew has got a secret of his own, and it’s a doozy. When they talk, they find out that secrets never go away, that they always find a way to come out in the end. And sometimes with disastrous results.”

Another excerpt from ANOTHER SECRET!

AnotherSecret_medI thought it was time I posted another excerpt from my dark fantasy/werewolf novella, Another Secret:

Drew slammed the door behind him and hurried toward his bathroom. The wolf part helped him fight the cold slicing through him as he’d made his way home, but his human body was desperately in need of heat. As usual, he’d left his clothes in the outhouse on the edge of his property, but this time he bypassed them to get home as soon as he could to check out his wounds. He’d never been hurt like that before and he was unnerved.

He turned on the shower, stepping under it as soon as it was hot. He sucked in a breath as the hot water hit his icy skin, sighing as the warmth slowly spread through his body. He was relieved to see his injuries were healing well and would likely be gone by the time he was dried and dressed. As soon as he felt wholly human again, he got out of the shower, wrapped himself in a big bath towel and headed for the main room. The fire was banked, but he quickly threw a few logs onto it, knowing it would soon be blazing.

Then he hurried to his bedroom, where he rubbed himself down with the towel before getting dressed. He hastened to the kitchen and was soon back in front of the fire warming his hands around his coffee mug. He sat on the rug, leaning back against his sofa and staring into the flames as they danced before him. When had his life become so complicated? He tipped his head back and stared at the ceiling. He knew the answer and hated it.

He closed his eyes and allowed the images to form…let the memory flow. For a time, he’d fought against the recollection, as if trying to forget could change anything. Then he learned the power of those memories and drawing on them kept him focused. Part of him hated that so much of his energy was centered on the need for revenge, but even his human side accepted James should pay for what he’d done; for what he might do to some other unsuspecting soul who let his defenses down enough to trust him. Though Drew couldn’t deny his own culpability, he’d gone looking for someone strong and sexy he could lose himself in. His mistake had been in choosing James.

Drew remembered walking into Pascoe’s Club in Huntington that Friday night, same as he did about every four to six weeks when his itch needed a particular kind of scratching. He’d argued with Leland that afternoon, nothing dramatic, but it was the last straw after a particularly demanding week and Drew knew what he needed. He wished it was something he could share with Leland, but that day seemed as far off as ever.

Galley done for Another Secret!

AnotherSecret_med

 

Just pressed ‘send’ on an email to return the Galley for Another Secret back to my publishers. That’s it now, finished and out of my hands, being readied for publication next weekend.

I always look forward to publication but at the same time it is a nerve wracking experience. The author is never sure how the potential reader will view any new release, whether the cover and the blurb will grab their attention or just prompt them to pass on by and look at another book.

I think Amber Allure has provided me with an excellent cover and I hope the blurb I provided is intriguing enough to make folk want to read the book, which contains my first attempt at writing a werewolf shifter story.

Fingers crossed – was going to cross my toes too, but I’m in desperate need of coffee!

Coming Soon – Another Secret!

I just realized that it’s only two weeks now until the release of my novella, Another SAnotherSecret_medecret. The book is described as gay dark fantasy/werewolf and is my first foray into writing a werewolf story.

Here’s an idea of what the story is about:

Leland is afraid to confess his secret to his best friend, Drew, but knows it isn’t something he can hide any longer. On his way to talk with Drew he is shocked to discover that Drew has a secret too, one Leland’s not sure how to deal with: Drew is a werewolf.

The book is also part of the Amber Allure Pax: I Know What You Did! All the books are released individually on the same day, but there is a discount if you purchase all five:)

I love the cover for Another Secret, it fits perfectly with the way I see the character of Drew:)  Keep an eye on the Amber Quill Press site on 23rd July for its release.

Cover art for upcoming release, ANOTHER SECRET!

AnotherSecret_med

 

I was delighted when I received the cover art for ANOTHER SECRET, my gay dark fantasy novella to be released on June 23rd from Amber Quill Press. I think it fits the story perfectly, those eyes…

To give an idea of why I think the expression is perfect:

Leland is afraid to confess his secret to his best friend, Drew, but knows it isn’t something he can hide any longer. On his way to talk with Drew he is shocked to discover that Drew has a secret too, one Leland’s not sure how to deal with: Drew is a werewolf.

The book is also part of the Amber Allure Pax: I Know What You Did! All the books are released individually on the same day but there is a discount if you purchase all five:)

New contract signed with Amber Allure!

AmberAllureBannerMed
I just returned from posting a contract back to Amber Quill Press. The contract was for a novella called ANOTHER SECRET, part of one of their PAX collections, this one entitled, I KNOW WHAT YOU DID – which I think is kinda self-explanatory.  The thing with PAX collections is that the publisher throws out the idea but the authors who pick up can take it in any direction they like, and that can result in some very interesting – and wide ranging – collections.  I’m not sure when this PAX will be out but it’ll probably be around summer. I’ll post when I know more.
