Forget my shock and dismay September 19th is here already, [how many shopping days until Christmas??]]. The One Pulse Benefit Anthology is here and ready for the top of your gift-giving list. One copy for you, and one for each of the MM Romance lovers in your life.

Stories drive life. Sometimes life is good; sometimes life is bad. But it’s the nature of our community that in the aftermath of an act of hatred, we respond with love. Because darkness cannot exist in the presence of light. Cruelty cannot stand against compassion. Negativity will never overcome hope.

To show our support for those affected by the Orlando shooting, our authors, editors, artists, and staff have volunteered their talents to create this anthology. All proceeds will be donated to LGBT organizations in central Florida. Join us as we celebrate the triumph of love over every obstacle.

available from Dreamspinner Press

Includes my short story, EVERYTHING I NEED

Joshua would be happy to run off to Vegas to marry his fiancé, but Michael’s big family expects him to follow tradition with an equally big wedding—even though he’s marrying another guy.

No surprise to anyone involved in my life I didn't get a chance to submit a story for this year's DSP Advent Calendar (insert big frowny face here). Imagine my excitement when I was asked to join several authors I admire in a seasonal anthology and life behaved.

Winter Warmers is due to release on November 28th - Until then, click on this cool banner by [livejournal.com profile] lou_harper for more details, and a look at the amazing cover (also by Lou)!

Woah, I can log in! Thank you, LJ maintainers and techs for all your hard work. Now I may share my excitement over the blurb for my upcoming release, The One that Counts - Part of the Dreamspinner Press 2011 Daily Dose for June. *bounces*

Blurb:

When Rob Gentner’s father dies, his partner David sees an opportunity to shed some light on a past Rob rarely talks about. Standing in front of the family-owned Laundromat that was a major part of his upbringing, Rob finally shares the story of the summer of his first year of college, the beginning of his self-acceptance and life as a gay man. Finally David can understand the circumstances that made Rob the man he loves today—and they both decide that while first times will always be remembered, the last times are the ones that count.

Pre-order information and pricing for the set will be posted as soon as available.

A Special Project by Dreamspinner Press & ManLoveRomance Press. Edited by Kris Jacen.
How much impact can someone have on your life if you’ve never met them face to face?

In this electronic age of E-mails, electronic publishing, and social networks, quite a lot.

Through his emails, stories and blog, author Patric Michael has touched numerous hearts, minds and lives from the start of his career and further as he now takes us along on his journey to battle cancer.

Along the way, Patric shows us a side of life that not many truly see -- how we are all a part of something larger than just ourselves, and how we are each touched by others for the betterment of all.

Now, those that have been touched by Patric and his words have joined together to give something back, to him and to us all through something he values highly – words.

In this compilation, short stories, poems, and anecdotes combined with excerpts from Patric's blog and a few entertaining, educational group posts reveal, and celebrate, the man who has touched so many hearts and minds.

This collection is a gift from all our hearts to celebrate Patric and give strength (and a little levity) to others. The price reflects this; no one is receiving royalties or payment from the sales. Use it to celebrate life, celebrate words, and possibly inspire someone who needs it.

I am truly proud and honored to have been a small part of this anthology. There's an amazing assortment of authors and stories ahead for the reader. And, of course, plenty of Patric himself.

Also known as we have blurb!



Perhaps not quite the slacker I've portrayed of late, I surprised myself with not one, but two stories in this year's Dreamspinner Press Advent Calendar. As always I'll post more info as available - until then here are the summaries:




Better with Sprinkles: College student Tom Molina isn’t too interested when his roommate Derek tries to convince him to leave his books and help out with the campus LGBTA Center’s annual Christmas cookie sale. But Derek has an ace in the hole to score the center Tom’s grandmother's sugar cookie recipe: fellow volunteer Jeanette’s cousin just happens to be the organic chemistry T.A. Tom’s been dreaming about. Now Tom just has to hope Isaac is as interested in baking cookies as he is in chemistry and HIV awareness.

and

The Reason for the Season: All college student Adam Everett is trying to do is get to his sister’s house for holiday break. First his car breaks down, then his ride takes off to Vegas with his gas money, forcing Adam to come up with a Plan C. His last hope is a campus ride exchange, where he ends up with the reluctant Michael Brennan. When a “snowpocalypse” forces them to share a motel room, they soon find out there's more than one reason for the chance happenings of the season.

June 1st! While a good part of me is quivering with denial and wants to hide because this means half the year is gone - yes! Gone! The other part is excited because The Scenic Route is now available at Dreamspinner Press.

Summary: It’s the first time Ed Baldwin has ever taken his boyfriend Joe Sutton home to meet his parents, and nervous, he keeps trying to pick a fight with Joe to relieve his stress while they drive. When Joe’s had enough, they pull over in a very small town where the choice in motels only adds to Ed’s anxiety. A series of strange happenings puts them back on the road sooner than expected, and it’s at an all-night diner that they find out why the Easy Rest Motel didn’t live up to its name. That’s what Ed gets for letting Joe take the scenic route.

Want to learn how Ed and Joe first met?
