Winter Blues




I’m beginning to get cabin fever with the winter months lasting so long. The weather has been so bad across the nation; it seems that spring followed by summer is a long way off. Last night we got another four inches of snow blocking our drive and causing multiple wrecks on the nearby Interstate.

Usually in the summer months, everyone complains about the heat, but this year, I believe I’ll enjoy whatever temperatures arrive during the summer months for our area. You can always go inside and cool off in the air conditioning.

There’s one positive thing about being cooped up in the house. It gives me time to write and that’s what I’ve been up to for the last month. I started a sequel to a book I wrote some time ago. The book I originally wrote was titled Bittersweet Memories and I dove in to write the sequel. If the weather persists in keeping me indoors, I’ll have the finished product out soon.

I’m wondering how other authors deal with wintry climates. Does being indoors help a writer produce more or does it cause restlessness in keeping your thought process from putting down a compelling plot?

Happy Friday the 13th! I'm at Madeleine Shade's fairy tale blog today. She's covering my two erotic fairy tales - "Trouble In Thigh High Boots" (erotic Puss In Boots) and "Climbing Her Tower" (erotic Rapunzel). Don't forget those two books are now available at AllRomanceEBooks.

Romance is in the air.

A very special day is only a little over a week away.  Valentine’s Day is a day of romance named for a Christian martyr that dates back to the 5th century, but has origins with the Roman holiday Lupercalia.
Most lovers celebrate Valentine’s Day by exchanging gifts, becoming engaged or plan weddings for the romantic day on February 14th. Romance is in the air surrounding this special day for anyone in love.
There are five films I recommend to watch with someone you love on Valentine’s Day. They are, An Affair to Remember, starring Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr, When Harry met Sally, Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan,   Sleepless in Seattle, Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, Love Actually, Hugh Grant and Kiera Knightly and my favorite of all time is The Notebooks starring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. If you don’t watch all of the films I listed, be sure and catch The Notebook.
Usually, it is the male that buys the gifts, but in the last few years, the female purchases something for her significant other to show her love.
My question to anyone reading my post is how do you celebrate Valentine’s Day and do you make it a holiday to remember?

Here’s a copy of the cover and blurb of my latest project Danger Lurks: Apache Eye 2. Also where to purchase the book.

Holiday Greetings

I want to wish everyone a Happy New year. It seems as if 2014 passed quickly and in a way, I’m glad it’s over. There was too much turmoil and violence marking the year in our country as well as other countries. My only hope is that 2015 will bring more peace and lead our country in a new direction.

Our family all gathered for Christmas, and I of course was nominated to bake the turkey and dressing. We had a wonderful time exchanging presents and gave thanks for our health.  I hope everyone reading this had a joyous Christmas and we’ll find happiness and peace in the New Year.

Self-publishing has kept me busy this year. Today, I uploaded another of my books titled Strangers in the Mist. I’m hoping with the holidays over, we can get back to advertising and selling our e-books.

I hope everyone has a safe and prosperous New Year. The same wish is for all to stay healthy and to show patience in stressful situations.  


Below I’ve posted a copy of my book cover and a blurb. Also there’s a list of sites where you can find Stranger’s in the Mist.

Blurb
Mattie was out for a jog one afternoon in the wooded area near her home. She notices the dark clouds overhead and runs for shelter in an old shack she spotted just at the edge of the forest. When she reaches the building, she glances out the window and is shocked by the scene unfolding. Three people are dancing in an au natural state around a raging bonfire. Is she imaging things or did she really see the strangers in the mist cavorting in the rain?

Time to Get Dirty! Dirty Dining Pre-Order #Giveaway (#gayromance @dreamspinners) –


DirtyDining400

One of the most joyful experiences as an author (for me, at least) is knowing my book has the perfect cover. It’s not as easy as you might think. I’m not an artist and I generally have a difficult time conveying my vision to the cover artist. So I was absolutely delighted to discover this gorgeous photograph on Deviant Art. It perfectly illustrates my main character Jeremy Linden (my deceptively attractive geek) and the precise tone of Dirty Dining. In fact, Jeremy spends a lot of time in those little white shorts, until he takes them off. Check out the excerpt below to find out just what I’m talking about.

Dirty Dining


Blurb

Jeremy Linden’s a PhD student researching an HIV vaccine. He’s always short of money, and when biotech startup PharmaTek reduces funding for his fellowship, he’s tempted to take a job at a men’s dining club as a serving boy. The uniforms are skimpy, and he’s expected to remove an item of clothing after each course. He can handle that, but he soon discovers there’s more on the menu here than fine cuisine. How far will he go to pay his tuition, and will money get in the way when he realizes he’s interested in more from one of his gentlemen?

Brice Martin is an attorney for a Silicon Valley venture capital firm. When he’s asked to take a client to the infamous Dinner Club, he finds himself unexpectedly turned on by the atmosphere and especially by his server, Remy. He senses there’s more to the sexy young man than meets the eye. The paradox fascinates him, and he can’t get enough of Remy.

Their relationship quickly extends beyond the club and sex. But the trust and affection they’ve worked to achieve may crumble when Jeremy discovers Brice’s VC firm is the one that pulled the plug on PharmaTek—and Jeremy’s research grant.


Excerpt

“Everyone, this is Jeremy.” Thomas introduced him to the other guys who would be working as serving boys at the Dinner Club that night, including one Jeremy recognized from the gym.



“Hi, Jeremy,” they said in chorus.



One slim blond guy with long bangs came up and gave him a not-very-subtle once-over and, before Jeremy could stop him, pulled his shirt out of his jeans far enough to get a good look at Jeremy’s abs. “Very nice.”



“Just chill, Kit.” Another guy shook his head and tugged Kit away. “You’ll scare him off before dinner even starts.”



Jeremy wasn’t thrilled with the grabby hands and hoped his client—whoever it might be—wouldn’t take liberties the way his fellow serving boys did.



“Let me give you tonight’s assignments.” Thomas spoke up to get their attention over the ensuing chatter. Jeremy was glad since he noticed some of it was speculation about him.



“Please let me have Mr. Gray.” Kit sashayed up to Thomas and tried to pull the clipboard out of his hand. The same law-abiding guy pulled him back.



“Sorry, Kit. You’ve got Mr. Yellow.”



“Oh, not so bad. I didn’t know he was coming tonight.” Kit grinned. “Or at least he will be,” he added in a singsong that had the others laughing.



“We’ve one new client, Mr. Green.”



“Let me have him!” It was another guy.



“Sorry, Rand, I think you’re a bit too much for him. I can’t have any of you scaring him off either. I think Jeremy will serve Mr. Green.” Thomas nodded at Jeremy. “He seems a little shy, so maybe you two will be a good match.”



“Okay.” Jeremy wasn’t sure if he’d been insulted or given an easy task. So far no one here seemed shy. But he needed to learn the ropes and figure out precisely what was expected of him as a serving boy.



Thomas gave out the rest of the assignments. Each client had a color-coded name, reminding Jeremy of the Tarantino film Reservoir Dogs. He hoped like hell tonight wouldn’t end up the same way, with everyone dead or wishing they were.



Once Thomas left, one of the guys came up to Jeremy. “I’m Rand. Been here the longest, so I’ll walk you through your duties. And if you’re not sure what to do, just ask me.”



“Okay.”



“First here’s your costume.” Rand handed Jeremy a box. “Open it up.”



Jeremy opened up the flaps and pulled out the flimsy pieces. Some thin filmy fabric, gold cord and not much else. “This is a costume?”



“Yeah. Every dinner has a theme. We’re Greek slave boys tonight. Tonight’s dinner has six courses, and there are six items in each costume. You take one off after you serve each course.”



Jeremy swallowed. Well, Thomas had told him he’d be taking his clothes off. He hadn’t realized quite how this would work, but it seemed easy enough. “That’s it?”



“You let your gentleman choose which piece you remove.”



“Then I take it off, right?”



“Yeah. Or if you let the gentleman do it, you get paid more.”



“Just taking clothes off? No one’s going to put their hands on me or request a lap dance or expect me to suck them off?”



Kit giggled in the background. “Only if you want to, pecan pie. And you may want to.”



Rand shook his head. “You only do what you want. If your guy asks for something, you can say no. You aren’t allowed to offer anything, or we can get in trouble for soliciting sex. There’s a menu—coded of course—and the gentlemen can ‘order’ something extra. You just let yours know which menu items are available.”

Sun, Sand, Sex, Christmas on Taha'a -- New Release!


A Christmas Bonus

Holiday Novella by EM Lynley

FREE with Kindle Unlimited

AChristmasBonus_300


Under the Polynesian sun, business turns to pleasure. This is one Christmas Bonus you deserve to give yourself this year.

I’m thrilled to announce the release of the brand new 2nd edition of A Christmas Bonus (35k novella)


 

What happens when business turns pleasurable?

Alec Compton’s dream job at a Wall Street investment firm is on the line if he can’t close a make-or-break takeover deal by the end of the year.

The buyer is none other than world-renowned billionaire and corporate raider Brant Linton, recently named one of the hottest and most eligible gay businessmen. Electricity crackles at their first meeting, and Alec’s thoughts drift far from business, despite his distaste for Brant’s business practices.

When Brant takes off early to spend Christmas with his sister’s family on the exclusive French Polynesian island of Taha’a, Alec has no choice but to follow if he wants to get Brant to sign on the dotted line. But Brant’s sister has forbidden him from conducting business during the holidays and Alec must masquerade as Brant’s boyfriend lest she find out what they’re really up to.

Then business turns into pleasure, but neither Brant nor Alec know whether the other is there for the deal, or for something more personal, in EM Lynley’s sizzling holiday novella A CHRISTMAS BONUS.

Just in time for the holidays. Whether you’re enduring yet another snowstorm or subzero temps, or whether you spend the holidays in the balmy Southern hemisphere, you won’t have another Christmas like this.

I’m trying something new this time around, and this novella is only available from Amazon and can be borrowed through Kindle Unlimited.

The second edition includes an additional 5000 words from the 2010 first edition.
