Standalone release: Mark of the Familiar


“Mark of the Familiar,” originally released in the Written in Flesh anthology is now available as a standalone.

In December, “Gift of the Familiar” will also be available and I’m plotting some giveaways on some other blogs. Exciting, yes?

Anyway, for those who don’t know about it, here is all about “Mark of the Familiar”:

Ellis, having killed his abusive master, is placed in the custody of a safe house for magical beings. Within those brick walls, he finds more than safety. But William has dealt with people’s unwanted attentions his entire life and wants nothing to do with Ellis or his devotion. Except Ellis is determined to convince William that their bond is more than just skin deep and that together they can make something magical.

It’s available through Storm Moon Press.

New Release: Gift of the Familiar!

Normally on the winter solstice I make a list of those people who have brought light into my light…and I may do that, but the list isn’t going up today. I’ve been super busy, kind of depressed, and unmotivated in that regard.

But I do have other exciting news! Ellis and William (From “Mark of the Familiar”) are returning for a holiday adventure in “Gift of the Familiar.”  The short story is part of Storm Moon Press’s holiday anthology, Milk & Cookies & Handcuffs. You can find it at all the standard stores, and at Storm Moon Press’s website. Below is more information 🙂 Be sure to check it out!

Milk & Cookies & Handcuffs anthology
“Gift of the Familiar”

Ah, the holidays. Gifts and songs. Tinsel and lights. Whips and chains? That’s right. This holiday anthology is all about BDSM, filled with characters who know that sometimes it’s Nice to be Naughty. This collection of five stories includes gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans*, and straight couples (and moresomes) that share a common desire for the kinkier side of sex: sensual bondage, sexual domination, and genuine, loving submission. And what better time to explore this dynamic of giving and receiving than the holidays? ‘Tis the season, after all!

Shapeshifting Ellis learns from his new master William about the traditions and true meaning of First Day, stories kept from him by his spiteful former master. The day of celebration becomes even sweeter when Ellis opens his presents and receives the Gift of the Familiar — and then has William try it out on him!

Soups and Diners release!

Because I’ve been laid up with a stomach bug, I’m a little late to the party, but…

My short story “Soups and Diners” is now available through Dreamspinner Press!

Two days before Christmas, just after his best friend’s wedding, Max is in a diner when he’s joined by Stan, another wedding guest. Getting to know each other ensues with some awkwardness, teasing, and fun conversation. They seem to hit it off, but Stan has reservations, wondering if Max is too good to be true, and Max has a history of bad boyfriend choices. Will meeting each other be a Christmas miracle—or a prettily wrapped present that’s really an empty box?
