Oscar has never liked the holidays and all the surrounding rigmarole, but that doesn’t stop his best friend from dragging him along for her Black Friday shopping spree. The only perk of the day is that he meets Nathan while he’s there.

With sparkling blue eyes, curly blond hair, and a smile that won’t stop, Nathan is a Christmas elf in the flesh. He even spends his days in a workshop! But Nathan is more than his bright smile, and he may be just the right person for Oscar. Assuming, of course, Oscar doesn’t drive him and his holiday spirit away first.

This story started as a fun little prompt and grew into an exploration of what the holidays mean and how family can affect you even into adulthood. I’ve been lucky and I’ve had great family to celebrate the holidays with, but some of my friends haven’t been so blessed. Although their experiences weren’t Oscar’s, this story is dedicated to them, and everyone else who can’t enjoy the holidays with family as they’re shown on TV and in movies.

Thankfully Oscar finds Nathan, who is everything Oscar isn’t. The spark between them is instant and burns hot, but when Christmas comes around, Oscar’s attitude threatens to douse the flame between them. Can Nathan save the holidays and rekindle the heat between them? Guess you’ll have to read to find out 😉

Announcement!

So this week I got some exciting news!

*drum roll*

I just signed a contract for a novella coming out with Nine Star Press! It’s the story of Oscar, who very much does not like the holidays, and Nathan, who very much could be one of Santa’s elves. They meet in the crazy that is Black Friday, and immediately hit it off. Of course, falling in love around the holidays is never easy, but they might just be able to do it!

With acceptance comes cover forms to fill out, edits to return, and blurbs to write. It’s all very exciting.

Short post today, as I have baking to do, triplets to hang out with, more baking to do, then friends to visit.

Breaking news: I’m excited

Spring is here (that’s why it’s snowing, right?), and that means it’s Horse Season for me. Right now my main task is grooming ponies to help them shed out their winter coats (and considering how fuzzy some of the ponies get, this can be intense!). I wish I’d taken pictures of the barn floor after I groomed my old retired pony. I could have built a dog out of the amount of hair left. (And I mean a german shepherd, not a miniature poodle.)

But my favorite pony is ready to go! One of the kids who uses him for her 4-H project has been riding him on and off all winter, and since we both started riding again in March, he’s in good shape and not nearly as fuzzy as the others.

I can’t quite tell if he’s happy to be back to work or not.

This summer I also have the opportunity to exercise a friend’s mare. I’m not wild about mares, or quarter horses, so this will be an adventure, but it will be nice to have a consistent mount (who is sane and not a pony!). The nice thing is that I still won’t have to feel guilty if I don’t get a chance to get out as often as I should, since I’m a secondary rider 🙂

There’s also an 18-hh Warmblood (that’s 6 feet tall at the whithers) that might need ridden, and if the owner works the kinks out, I may ride him too. Of course, at 5’3, I’m going to look like a pimple. I’ll share pictures if that happens.

If you missed it, Second Skin is now available to order/download at Riptide’s website! It’ll be available at all other vendors on Monday 🙂 So if you just can’t wait, you know where to go.

Also, if you want to follow my blog tour, here’s a list of the stops I’ll be making.

Finally:

I’m going to be at RT Booklovers Convention from Tuesday through Sunday this coming week, If you you’re going to be in Vegas and you want to say hi, just drop me a line! I’ll mostly be gofering for Riptide, but I have a fair amount of flexible time too. Let me know, and I hope to see you there.

7 Points of Interest

1. I’m not dead.

2. I’m adorable as a Powerpuff character.

3. March was crazy with editing all week and writing on weekends and then Easter snuck up on me. This is the first weekend I’ve had where I didn’t feel like a headless chicken.

4. JUST OVER A WEEK UNTIL SECOND SKIN RELEASES

5. The week of April 11 will see a lot of blog posts from me in the Second Skin tour, and I’ll try to forward them along so you don’t miss any.
6. If you’re going to be at RT this month, be sure to stop by and say hi! I’ll be there, wearing a Riptide tee! I’m the short one with the short brown hair.
7. Horseback riding season is starting up again and I really need to organize my life better in order to get anything/everything done. Could someone please loan me their Time Turner? Thank you.
Happy April!

Book release announcement!

I’m so excited to announce that Second Skin is now available to pre-order on Riptide’s page! There you can find the blurb and a teaser cover.

Here’s you go!

When Jay heads to the university’s learning center for help with his math class, he doesn’t expect his tutor to be tall, dark, and handsome. But Roswell is all that and more, and their instant connection over cult movies, books, and TV shows quickly evolves into dating.
That’s when things get tricky.
Roswell might claim he doesn’t have issues with Jay being trans, but when he’s constantly insisting they “take it slow,” Jay’s not so sure. He’s been hurt before, and he’s not going to let it happen again.
But then Roswell reveals that he, too, has a few secrets under his skin.

Sharing a Pond available for preorder!

I’m excited to announce that Sharing a Pond is now available for preorder on Less Than Three’s website!

I am so excited for November. I mean, it’s a pretty great month (it’s no October, but it’s pretty great), but this just makes it that much more awesome! Of course, now I have to start thinking about things like getting the word out and all that stuff but…

I’m just going to rejoice in SaP having a cover and being up for release and all that great stuff.
