Book Release Day for Queers In Kilts

This book was so much fun to edit and my own story in it was one of my favorites to write. 😀

ROMANCE, QUEERS, AND KILTS

Queers In Kilts features romantic stories of queer characters who have only two things in common; they’re wearing kilts and they’re falling in love. Beyond those commonalities lie a fascinating and tantalizing array of differences. In this collection you’ll discover first loves at a wedding, learn how a fiery couple of professional ladies really met, and encounter travelers who cross both swords and time in the pursuit of true love.

Whether you prefer light romance or a steamy, unexpected encounter, these stories from Raven Sky, Rhidian Brenig Jones, Shelley Ross-Winter, Meyari McFarland, Tobi Mackay, Sienna Saint-Cyr, Julie Ogilvy, and Gregory L. Norris will keep you turning the page!

A Little Song Sharing Post

 

Listening to this daily. 🙂 Thought I’d share. What songs are helping you through this time? Please share in the comments!

Everyday Life
Coldplay

What in the world are we going to do?
Look at what everybody’s going through
What kind of world do you want it to be?
Am I the future or the history?
‘Cause everyone hurts
Everyone cries
Everyone tells each other all kinds of lies
Everyone falls
Everybody dreams and doubts
Got to keep dancing when the lights go out
How in the world I am going to see?
You as my brother
Not my enemy?
‘Cause everyone hurts
Everyone cries
Everyone sees the color in each other’s eyes
Everyone loves
Everybody gets their hearts ripped out
Got to keep dancing when the lights go out
Gonna keep dancing when the lights go out
Hold tight for everyday life
Hold tight for everyday life
At first light
Throw my arms out open wide
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelu-halle-hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelu-halle-hallelujah
Yes

Free Origin Story From Kiki Burrelli!

Hi All! My friend, Kiki Burrelli, has a FREE short story! The description and links are below.

At seveneteen, Nolan has seen the brutality of his world. He’s an omega, which means he needs to stay out of trouble until some alpha finds him appealing enough to matter.

But Nolan is too defiant to attract most alphas and his physical appearance leaves some to be desired. At least, that is what he thinks until a childhood friend returns, showing Nolan how good life can be.

Please note: This is an Origin story to the main character in Shatter: Omega Assassins Club Book 4.

Book Release Day!

Dark, dirty, and sinfully arousing, this collection throws out the rulebook. It explores our most perverse urges through the naughtiest and deadliest of raw, carnal desires.

In the LUST stories, you’ll find that words have power and that there can be satisfaction in frustration.

The GLUTTONY stories show us that nothing succeeds like excess, and too much is never enough.

In a world where indulging our appetites is too often seen as a bad, selfish way to live, these stories offer delightfully wicked characters feasting unashamedly on pleasure. Devour these delicious tales of abandon and allow yourself to be inspired by characters who long to taste all that life and lust can offer, whether their focus is food, sex or a combination of the two.

These offerings are scandalizing and tasty.

Available in print and ebook!
