Last week, I went on a little blog tour to promote my newly released and upcoming M/M books, Double Up and Malachi’s Word. There’s another one coming as well in December. I wanted to let readers know that I was going to be releasing and writing more M/M in the future and I wanted to let them know some of my reasons for writing it and for reading it.
I tweeted and Facebook posted about the blog tour, but as it begins to wind down and all, I wanted to post the links here on the blog incase any of you wish to go read and comment.

Birthday memory – I was not only turning 30, but 8 months pregnant, feeling like a bloated whale with Fred Flintstone feet and grumpy as all hell. I waddled into work to find my office filled with black balloons, huge signs, streamers and black confetti freakin’ everywhere. To say I was not pleased was an understatement. To this day, I still apologize for being such a brat about it. It took *mumble* years before my coworkers tried any sort of decorating again. They braved it for my last birthday, and the sign is still taped to my wall complete with very droopy and shriveled balloons that I refuse to let the cleaning crew even get near.
Book – His Client. M/M BDSM Regency erotic romance
Mr. Nathaniel Travers has been visiting Madame Delacroix’s brothel for five years. On every visit, he requests the same man. Stunningly handsome and highly skilled, Jasper not only shares Nate’s fondness for wickedly erotic games and black leather corsets, but he’s become a friend. Someone he can talk to. Someone he can share a supper with. And Jasper’s the only person who knows Nate secretly harbors a love for his old childhood friend, Peter Edmonton.
Mr. Jasper Reed has been working at the house for a decade. He’s saved enough to retire, yet he remains at the decadent London brothel. Retiring would mean leaving Nate and the hope perhaps someday the rugged gentleman would stop pining for his best friend and realize he loves Jasper, just as Jasper loves him.
It takes Edmonton’s marriage for Jasper to see he’s been just as blind as Nate. Stubbornly hoping for something that cannot be. Convinced a gentleman like Nate can never be more than his client, Jasper retires.
Life in the country may be lonely, but with no one to please but himself, it’s calm and peaceful…until Nate shows up on his doorstep.

I’ve been racking my brains trying to think of a birthday memory—good, bad or ugly. I don’t usually do birthdays. My own, anyway. I prefer it to slide by with as little fuss as possible. Especially as I get older. And forget the cake. My best birthday eats are provided by my momma and they aren’t sweet. Momma lets me pick my favorite meal for dinner. No matter how old I get, I still love my mother’s cooking. My favorite tends to alternate each year. Last year, it was liver and onions and mashed potatoes. This year, it’ll be meatloaf, mashed potatoes and purple hull peas. Yum!! Any birthday spent with my family or friends is a good one. Hell, making it to the next one is up there on the list too! *cackle*
Have a fabulous birthday, Lissa! And remember, when it comes to age, it’s mind over matter! If you don’t mind, it don’t matter. Hugs & kisses!
Shayla will be offering an autographed print copy of her novellas Thirty Days and Forever as a present at the end of February…
Biton Savakis, a 42 year old wealthy lawyer in New York City, is lost without his beloved slave of ten years. Since Erik’s death from cancer three months before, the will to continue his life as a Dom slipped away. Until now. The forlorn looking redhead seems as lost as Biton feels. Maybe the young man can help ease his tension, even if only for a little while.
Cavan never chose the life of a slave, but he doesn’t clearly remember a time when he wasn’t one. Beaten close to death and thrown aside by his former Master, Cavan doesn’t know how to do anything else. When Biton offers him a temporary contract, Cavan doesn’t understand the meaning of his new Master’s words. All he knows is he has a new home and someone to serve. But what will happen to him when the contract ends… In thirty days..
Content: M/M, bondage, Domination/submission
In Biton Savakis’ opinion, following the advice of Cavan’s therapist isn’t working. Refraining from dominant play with an abused submissive trying to heal is one thing. Biton is willing to forgo that part of his life. However, not talking to Cavan about making their arrangement permanent doesn’t make sense.
Three months after his new master promises him forever, Cavan is afraid it won’t happen. Although the thirty day contract is long over, Biton hasn’t offered a new one. Nightmares about testifying against his former master don’t make life easier.
Just as Cavan begins to understand what he means to Biton, Cavan’s past reaches out to steal his happiness and maybe his life.
