The Werecat trilogy is out in paperback!

WerecatTrilogyFinalRETAILCover700x1066pRGB96dpiJust released today: all three installments of the Werecat saga in one fierce, little paperback.

That’s The Rearing, The Glaring and The Fugitive all together for the first time. Here’s a blurb about the story.

Twenty-two-year-old Jacks is on a mission to drown his past in alcohol when he meets the handsome drifter Benoit on a lost weekend in Montréal. It’s lust and possibly something more. Jacks never suspects that a drunken hook-up will plunge him into the hidden, violent world of feline shifters.

Benoit traps him in an arcane ritual to be joined as mates, from which Jacks emerges with fantastical abilities and a connection to Native traditions that were buried by his family. But his new existence pits his human instincts against his wild animal nature. When Jacks meets the young medical student Farzan, who wants to be with Jacks no matter what or who he is, Benoit’s feline jealousy rages like an inferno.

Jacks must figure out how to survive with his dual nature and a boyfriend who will kill any threat to their relationship. When a secret society called The Glaring shows up with a plan to exterminate humankind, Jacks will have to work quickly to gain command of Benoit’s magic before the world shatters into a war of man against beast.

The Werecat saga has been about two years in the making. I’m pleased as heck to see the full story beautifully bound in a print book. Pick it up at Amazon or your favorite retailer.

It’s Release Day: The Fugitive (Werecat, Book 3)!!

WerecatTheFugitiveRETAILCover700x1066p96dpiRGBNow available everywhere: the third installment in the Werecat series The Fugitive.

It’s an e-book so by everywhere, I mean Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, All Romance e-Books and a host of other e-book retailers.

I’m also very excited to announce that all three Werecat installments will be available in one trilogy set, which will be both e-book and paperback. The release date for that is November 15th.

Meanwhile do pick up a copy of The Fugitive if you’ve been following Jacks’ adventure in the world of shifters. Of course, you can catch up on the story by checking out The Rearing (Book 1) and The Glaring (Book 2).

Here’s what you can expect in the newly released story:

On the run after killing a Hunter from The Glaring, Jacks travels to the Bahamas with his only clue to what the secret society wanted from him: his maker’s key to a safety deposit box at an offshore bank. A thirty-day legal procedure holds him up from uncovering what The Glaring was willing to kill him to get.

Meanwhile, Jacks meets an alluring ex-pat from South Africa named Maarten who hosts a nonstop pleasure cruise for disaffected werecats with no interest in the politics of their kind. With his nerves scratched raw from living on the run, it’s too tempting of an escape for Jacks to turn away. But while he’s cruising the Caribbean and spending nights in an orgiastic cuddle pile, The Glaring lays siege to New York City in a night of terror. Jacks’ boyfriend Farzan fights for his life and tries to reach Jacks overseas.

Jacks needs to emerge from a binge of drugs and sex to defend his boyfriend. But can he give up the chance to be with his own kind for the first time in his life? When the secret in the safety deposit box is revealed, Jacks realizes that it’s up to him to get it before The Glaring uses an arcane magic that will destroy humankind.

Special promotion: From November 12th to 20th on The Romance Reviews, sign up for a drawing of a copy of The Rearing (Werecat, Book 1) to get started on the series!

Podcast Interview on People You Should Know

Hey folks!

I thought I would post my interview from earlier today on the BlogTalkRadio show People You Should Know.

It was great talking with the host, a fellow Bold Strokes Book author David-Matthew Barnes (pictured in the freeze frame). We talked writing LGBT young adult literature, LGBT youth generally, and fantasy. I also read a short excerpt from The Seventh Pleiade.

Do listen in to the earlier guests Vivian Trask and Joel Gomez-Dossi. My segment comes up at 40 minutes in.

Just in time for Halloween: Erotica Paranormal

Just released by Editorial Trance, Erotica Paranormal, Vol. 1 is a spicy anthology of poetry, short stories and book excerpts inspired by the mystic and the occult.

I am proud to be a contributor to the anthology. You will find within a sultry little passage that I really liked from The Rearing, Werecat: Book 1.

Editorial Trance is offering Erotica Paranormal, Vol. 1 as a free e–book download on their website. Content warning: Adult content and graphic sex.

That should get people over there. :)

Now, a bit about Editorial Trance, from their website:

Help Support Bent-con and Come out for the Festivities

I made a pledge to Bent-con’s Kickstarter campaign. Can you?

Bent-con is a really important organization that supports the creative community and its fans. From the organizers:

BENT-CON is the premiere convention that celebrates and recognizes LGBTQ (and Allies) contributions to pop-culture and geekdom. BENT-CON is committed creating a space where EVERYONE is safe to share and express their particular brand of creativity and fandom proud and out loud!

Here’s their Kickstarter video:


This year’s convention, November 7th – 9th in Burbank, California, will be its fifth annual. As a non-profit venture, the event relies on contributions from the community to promote and advertise, which in return benefits the artists, writers and fans who participate.

I went to my first convention last year. Beyond the wonder of discovering a vibrant segment of the LGBT community (I had tweeted: I have died and gone to gay geek heaven), I was really impressed by the range of programs and the plentiful interaction between convention guests and fans.

This year, in addition to being part of Bold Strokes Books exhibition booth, I will be leading one panel “A Hitchhiker’s Guide to Atlantis” and speaking in another “Gay Wizards and Lesbian Sorceresses”. Be sure to say hello if you have a chance to stop by.

And if you haven’t done so, please consider making a contribution to Bent-con’s Kickstarter.
