"Strange Bedfellows" Deal

Hey, Kindle bargain hunters! My novel “Strange Bedfellows” is on sale for a few days at $2.99 (normal price $6.99). To grab a copy:


Frances Dourne, head of Gay Is a Choice, seems to be a shining example for ex-gays. What people do not know is that she is deeply unhappy. She is ready to come out of the closet and be true to herself. She seeks help and feedback—and okay, maybe a sexual treat or two—from a high-class call girl.

Two "Knowing Katharine" Sequels Are Out Today!

I'm happy to say that I have not one book but TWO coming out today. They're the second and third books after "Knowing Katharine," which was published last year. Book Two is "Loving Katharine" and Book Three is "Marrying Emma." When Book Two was in edits, I started on Book Three, and it came together incredibly quickly. In fact, it had been done for a while before edits for Book Two came back in. Instead of releasing them a few months apart for the sake of how things are usually done, I figured why not release them together? So, here they are.

Book Two is contained in that it does not have a cliffhanger ending or anything like that. So, you don't have to get Book Three in order to “continue” Book Two. Based on beta reader feedback, reading Book One may help you understand/enjoy Book Two better. Book Three stands alone better than Book Two. Reading all three is best, of course! :)

Anyway, here are the blurbs and more info. Do not read past the blurb for Book Two if you prefer to avoid minor possible spoilers in the Book Three blurb.

Book Two, “Loving Katharine”: When Britain’s crown princess Katharine came out of the closet and ran off with one of her security officers, they knew they were destined for a fling, not for true romance. They would take what they could get in the little time they had together and resume their separate lives.
Except Katharine is queen a mere three months after they parted, and her former lover has been summoned to her side. What about the feelings that deepened in Puerto Rico? Can the two women make a go of an actual relationship?

Maybe. Maybe not. Plus, some things are not what they seem. Namely, Katharine’s youngest sister, Emma, is struggling with her own sexuality. Secrets and fear run deep, and they imperil the chances of a happily ever after.


Book Three, “Marrying Emma”: Britain’s Princess Emma, an out lesbian, is trying hard to make romantic connections, but they never seem to succeed. In one case, Emma discovers in the middle of lovemaking that the woman is married. In another case, the romantic prospect simply never gets back in touch. 

Emma’s eldest sister, Queen Katharine, seems happily married, and even her middle sister, Margaret, with her laundry list of issues, is on the cusp of happiness.

So it’s no wonder Emma feels desolate. That begins to gradually change with the intriguing reporter Marisol Richards, but she says she’s not the one for Emma. There’s someone out there, though, someone who yearns to get her fairy tale ending. In fact, she and Emma were meant to be together years ago. Will they finally find their way together?


Also, if you haven't yet read "Knowing Katharine":

Tessa Donovan is a New York City cop tired of pounding the streets, tired of the long hours, tired of the wrecked relationship with the woman she used to love. So, when Cliff Sandings with the Royal Protection Command approaches her for a job opportunity, she jumps at the chance.
Her task: going deep undercover, including a new name, to protect Britain’s Katharine Anne Elizabeth Amalia, heir to the throne. Katharine is entering her junior year at Purcell College in Maine. She won’t let a near-successful assassination attempt deter her plans to live as normally as possible.

Tessa (undercover name Trisha) moves into a dorm room near Katharine’s, and the security officer quickly learns that protecting Katharine is tricky. Not necessarily because of physical threats but because lust gets in the way. Plus there is the fact that Katharine is poised to be the future queen of England, and an out lesbian relationship with her is all but impossible. There’s also another lesbian in the picture, the persistent Joyce Thomas, and Trisha can’t help but be drawn to her too.

Will Trisha succeed in getting to know the true Katharine, or will it be one of the other women in Katharine’s life? Does anyone truly get to know her?

And what about the woman who fantasizes about ending the lives of Katharine and her father, the king?

Awesome Example of Reusing! :D

I like saving money, and that often means reusing stuff and not upgrading at the drop of a hat. However, I just did something for the first time. Marcy’s birthday was yesterday, and Nadia “helped” her unwrap the gift. We let Nadia have the cool purple wrapping paper to play with afterward. So, today, I am picking up around the house and get the wrapping paper off the floor. I then remember I have two gifts to wrap for Marcy’s and my one-year wedding anniversary tomorrow. I look at the paper and go, “Hmm. Hmm!”

Yep! It was a perfect fit for one of the gifts. Now how about that! :D

Here’s a picture of the paper covering a gift for the second time. 


My new book, "Knowing Katharine," is out!

(You can buy it at all of the other retailers too--and in print.)

Excerpt from "Knowing Katharine"

Here's an excerpt from the beginning of Knowing Katharine. FYI, the excerpt is about 6,100 words (and the story itself is a novel). The Amazon preorders page has it ranking in (among other categories)  90 minutes (44-64 pages) > LGBT, but the book is about 50,000 words and takes longer than that to read. I think the discrepancy occurred because the first file I uploaded was about 1/4 to 1/3 the length of the final story. The final word count file has been there for awhile, but it still ranks in that category.

Anyway! Excerpt time in PDF (and check out this link for more background info). And another disclaimer: It is always possible, of course, that what you see in this excerpt will not make it into the version published June 15.

My Two Concerts

The Facebook thing going on about concerts reminds me that I have been to only two (I think). The first was accidental. And probably not a true concert. I was in high school and at one of the "Days of Our Lives" conventions in South Carolina. I was with an older friend of mine and a guy friend of hers. My (straight) friend was all like, "Oh, these guys are hot!" etc. I barely paid attention. I did snap a picture or two and haven't seen it in years. No idea where the evidence is. Anyway, this group that headlined the DOOL convention event was... N'SYNC. They were, of course, small potatoes at the time. When they got big later, I sure wished I had paid more attention and kept the picture(s).

The second concert was by a girl group, "She Moves," and in the f**king freezing outdoor cold in downtown Roanoke. I had never heard of the group, but a Google search now turns out that hey, they were not totally obscure (they appeared on "SNL"!). My sisters were crazy about the group and wanted to go, and my parents forced me to go. I had a pretty miserable time. Got nothing from it except being really cold. (Parents, don't force your deaf kids to go to concerts if they don't want to. Haha.)

I have gone to several symphony orchestras and overall enjoy them as long as the conductor is dramatic as all get out.
