Yes, you read that right. Out of the Blue has been removed from all sales sites and is undergoing a rewrite and re-edit. I’m obviously a sucker for punishment. LOL. I’m running a fine-toothed comb and a red pen through it. The original story will remain intact; Cam and Jake will still go through hell before they get their HEA, but the writing will be smoother and more consistent. Scenes may be added or removed, depending on what I feel the story needs. I will release it again later this year with a new cover too.

Stay tuned. I’ll announce a date as soon as I can.

What I’ve been working on and what you can expect to see…

I thought I’d take a small time out to let you know what you can expect to see coming up.

First, I have a small short story that was published in Wayward Ink Press’s Encore Anthology.  The One That I Want will be released as a standalone on Oct 9th with a short sequel Hopelessly Devoted released on Oct 23rd. Both are sweet reads that you can enjoy while having an afternoon cuppa. I hope you like Jason and Paul as much I do.

Late November, early December will see the introduction of Josh and Alex in the release of Indigo Road,  a full novel where two best friend take a year off to travel the country after graduating from college. While both MC’s may not consider themselves gay, they’re a long way from straight when they realise their feelings for each other run deeper than they first thought.

That rounds out 2015 for me, but I’m far from finished.

2016 will see the release of True Blue, #3 in the Out of the Blue series with Mason finally getting his man and Brandon realising he’s not as straight as he first thought.

Sometime in the year I’ll introduce you to Aiden and Noah in As The Leaves Fall, my gorgeous British architects who try very hard not to have an office relationship. I won’t have a release date for them for a while as I’ll be relying on the publisher for that one rather than publishing it myself, that’s if they accept it, of course. (I’m so excited for this one, I could burst!)

I’m hoping to round out 2016 with Bluheprint, #4 in the Out of the Blue series. I’ve had quite a few of my readers asking for Jet’s story and to be honest, I love him so hard, it was difficult trying to tame him in Black & Bluhe as the little shit thought it was his story, instead of his brothers. LOL.

I have a couple of others that have been started but have been shelved for various reasons. One I’ve titled Solid Rock and is a story about an Australian tour guide working at Ayres Rock/Uluru. He meets a shy British boy who comes to the rock to scatter the ashes of a father he never really knew.  The other is a series of BDSM novella’s which I’m not sure will ever see the light of day, but we’ll see. I don’t like to see a project unfinished so it may surface one day.

Till next time, here’s another hot man to keep you company.  🙂

Lt Cameron Cooper has been with the San Francisco Fire Department for fifteen years. He’s seen and dealt with a lot of horrifying situations. He’s always considered himself mentally tough, but when he attends a multi-vehicle accident and sees a dead boy with features remarkably similar to his long-time boyfriend, his mental health takes a hit.

With heated arguments and cold shoulders, Cam and Jake’s life starts to fall apart. Just when Cam thinks he can overcome his issues and finally talk to Jake, memories from Jake’s past threaten to push them apart forever.

♫ Musical inspiration for Out of The Blue ♫

The other day while driving I hooked up my iPod to the car radio. It was on shuffle and it was playing various songs over a wide variety of genres, most songs played I had completely forgotten I had.  It wasn’t until this song came on that I remembered my misspent youth listening to anything and everything Melissa Etheridge. When I got home I quickly flicked through all the albums I have of hers – which is all of them I think – and I listened and listened. And I remembered being a lanky teenager saving all her money just to buy this album. I raced home with the cassette (yes it was that long ago) plugged in my headphones and got out my pad and paper so I could write down all the lyrics.  The things we used to do 🙂

For whatever reason, this song stayed with me and it sets the tone for the entire album.

If you haven’t got it, I recommend downloading it.  Good luck trying to find the cassette now 🙂

It’s gonna be a real thing… Out Of The Blue is coming!

I’ve finally made up my mind what I’m doing with “Out Of The Blue.”  Oh My God, she’s made a decision!

It may have taken me longer than most but I was tossing up between submitting to a publisher and doing it myself.

In the end I wanted control of what I was putting out there. If I subbed to a publisher I would be given one of their editors, but who’s to say that editor would be right for me and my story? I don’t know much about editing, so how would I know if I’ve been given the right one?

Answer is, I wouldn’t. So I’ve hunted and researched and asked for sample edits.  I’ve done the same with cover artists. But that’s a different post.

Out Of The Blue is happening, I’m just not sure how long the process will take before it becomes a real, live, living book. I’m hoping for Jan or Feb 2015.

I’ll keep you posted on what’s happening.  In the meantime, cross your fingers and wish me luck.

♫ More Musical inspiration for Out Of The Blue♫

I love 5SOS. Even though they’re being called the Australian version of One Direction and have attracted the teeny-bobber crowd (of which I am NOT a member,) their voices are strong and their music is very easy to listen to.

I heard this song for the first time a couple of weeks ago and all I could think of was my two guys, Jake and Cameron.
