Revealed and More…

So, a couple of readers have suggested that there needs to be another story about Thor and Bobby, an HEA. Have you read it? Are you planning to read it? What do you think? What do you want?

It’s up to you.

Do you want another one? Do you want to know how things progress, end up?

Let me know. Email me. Leave a comment here, on Twitter, on Facebook, heck even on Goodreads. If enough of you want it, I’m happy to write it. I love them, Thor and Bobby. I know you love them, too.

It’s been a fun little series to write, something new for me to explore. There are other m/m books in my mind, up on my whiteboard, in Evernote. I wanted to know if anyone would like them, of course, as I said, there were other factors by the names of Kendra and Samantha nudging me, urging me to write m/m. I’ve loved it.

So, let me know… If you’d like more from Thor and Bobby…

And what should the title be?

NaNoWriMo and Other Stuff…Like A Trading Card Giveaway!

It’s gonna be a busy few weeks and I have lofty goals and plans for the next month during NaNoWriMo. For those of you who do not know what that means, well, it stands for National Novel Writing Month. 50,000 words in 30 days. The book I’m working on for it is Drive Shaft, the second race car book for Loose Id.

I have attempted NaNoWriMo the last couple of years, but have not finished. Last year I kind of choked under pressure and didn’t write for a few months. This year, I’m going about things a little differently and am feeling really good about my writing. Forcing myself to put out the 3 short male/male stories has helped me a lot. Even though they’re not selling well, I’m enjoying the sense of accomplishment. I’m learning. I’m experimenting. And I’m trying not to get down that they’re not selling well. It’s been almost a year since I’ve had a good size book come out and that’s no one’s fault but mine. I take full responsibility for it.

I am writing a lot right now. I am finishing up Revealed, what I think is going to be the final installment of Bobby and Thor’s little erotic romance. It’ll be slightly longer than Unmasked, which was slightly longer than Masked. Revealed has more than one scene, more than one POV, and a whole lot of verbal interaction between Bobby and Thor. They are beginning and this story is not meant to be a full length book, it’s not meant to iron out every last detail. It’s a beginning…

I am also working on Trouble In The Making. I’m going to finish that one if it kills me! The awesome artist Kendra Egert of Creations by Kendra is working on the cover and as soon as I have it, you’ll get to see it. She’s also going to be creating some trading cards for me too…

I am very excited about Twisted Up. I mean HUGELY excited about it! I want to spend most all of December talking about it, planning some promo and contests for it. It’s a fun, sexy book with A LOT and I mean A LOT of sex in it. There’s some intense emotion. There’s some laughter. But THERE IS A LOT OF SEX. Just warning you now.

I want to say that I appreciate all of you, my readers. Y’all have kept me going, especially the ones who email me with threats. Those of you who comment on my blogs, who follow me on Facebook and Twitter, who tell other readers about my books. I appreciate each and every one of you. And I’m going to ask you to do something I’ve not asked you to do before. Rate my books. On Amazon or Barnes and Noble. Wherever you buy them from, please go out and rate them, review them. Good or bad. (Good preferably, but most of all HONESTLY). Give them a Like on the Facebook button too. I mean really. There are a lot of readers out there who don’t know Vinter! Surely they deserve to know the man! Think of how deprived they are with him… Just sayin’ ya know… for the good of the readers, y’all!

How about this? Go out and rate/review one of my books, all of them, whatever… Go forth and give your opinions, come back here and tell me you have, and I’ll have a contest for Vinter, Buck, and Cam trading cards on Thursday at 7pm!

I now have to get back to writing. NaNoWriMo writing is done for the day, but I still have to work on Revealed and on Trouble In The Making.

Have a great Tuesday!

Unmasked Update #2

So, I’m a little late. What else is new? My day yesterday got all messed up once I found out my son’s rec league play-off game was changed to last night from tonight. It totally screwed up the flow of things on my end and by the time we got home last night, I was so frustrated and tired and bummed that they lost the game, I simply went to bed.

This morning, I worked on the blurb, went through another round of formatting and last minute checking of things with Unmasked. It’s been uploaded to Smashwords, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble. We are now in the waiting stages for it to be live and available for purchase. I have set up accounts with All Romance eBooks and Bookstrand to be able to publish there as well. I am waiting to hear back on account approval.

As I said yesterday, I will let you know as soon as it is ready for your Nooks and Kindles and iPads and Androids and PC’s.

I will be in the writing corner this weekend working on the third book, Revealed. It will be published November 10-11. During NaNoWriMo I will be finishing up Trouble in the Making (the cover is in the works) and the next race car book as I know many of you are anxious for it!

For now, though, it’s wait unfortunately…

With his mask secured in place, Bobby enters Abyss with a single purpose, a single desire. Thor. It’s been a busy week and he’s so anxious to see the dominant again, he doesn’t even take the time to head home and change into more appropriate fetish club attire. He hasn’t been able to shake the lust and memories of how it felt to be under Thor’s hands, to surrender to his need for a man, for Thor, and it drives Bobby to the one thing, the one place he knows he can find fulfillment.

Thor doesn’t flog men, at least not in public, but the undeniable attraction and need he feels the moment he spots Bobby, dressed more for a business meeting than a night out with lifestylers, compels him to make an exception that will change everything he’s known and everything everyone has thought about him.

Nervous and stripped of his shirt, Bobby is strapped to a St. Andrews Cross, surrendering to the pleasure that is Thor with a flogger. Thor’s whispered words of need and encouragement strengthen Bobby’s resolve that tonight is the night he must remove the mask and reveal his identity, that tonight he must reveal his longing for more than one night, once a week club meetings.

Will Thor still want him? There’s only one way to find out…

Unmasked Update

Hey y’all! I’ve spent the better part of yesterday finishing up revisions, cleaning the manuscript, and formatting Unmasked for uploading and release this weekend. I will spend the better of today perfecting everything as best I can and finishing up the blurb writing, and beginning the upload process.

You will hopefully have Unmasked by Friday night from Amazon and over the weekend from Barnes and Noble, depending on how long they take.

Over the weekend I will be working on the third installment, titled Revealed, of this short story series. It’s going to be a writing all weekend kind of thing. Next week, NaNoWriMo starts and I will be joining in again this year. I will be plotting my story (stories) come Monday so when Tuesday gets here I can jump right into writing. I hope to finish at least one 50K book and one smaller story by the end of November.

Why they chose November to do NaNoWriMo, I have no idea considering there’s a major holiday at the end and that’s when I’m usually pulling my hair out. Of course, I know not everyone celebrates Thanksgiving, but it’s my own personal gripe so sue me…

I’ll keep you updated on when Unmasked is available and where over the weekend but otherwise I’ll be in the writing corner with coffee… lots and lots of coffee!

Back to Writing

I spent a lot of time revising Masked, formatting it. I’ll be spending just as much time on Unmasked for it’s release next weekend. In the meantime, though, I am writing. I am finishing up Trouble in the Making and the 3rd story which will follow Unmasked. This will free up November for me to finish the 2nd race car book, Drive Shaft. It’s been my goal to get it finished by the time NASCAR season was done and well, both will be done by end of November. It is my NaNoWriMo project.

Also in book news, I have decided to self-publish the 3rd Blue Jeans and Hard Hats book. I have let Samhain know this so now I’m letting you, my readers know it. Basically, I wanted to be able to have a release date before late Summer 2012 and we simply couldn’t get it worked out that way. I am aiming for a February release for it. I hope y’all are looking forward to Blue’s story as much as I *finally* enjoyed writing it. It was a hard-fought book, but I am pleased with it.

For those who have purchased Masked, thank you. For those who haven’t, yet. Why not? It’s a really hot little number…grins. Remember, you can find it at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and Smashwords. I’ll be uploading both Masked and Unmasked to All Romance eBooks next week.

Have a great one y’all! I’m off for more coffee and to get back to writing…
