Welcome to my little corner of the gay erotic romance universe . . . well, half of it, anyway. (You can find the other half at RachelHaimowitz.com.) This is the place to come for sneak previews of new projects, release information, and the occasional M/M book review. I'll also share thoughts on the industry on occasion, and I hope you'll come share yours in return.

Visiting Kinky Ever After Today

I know I've been soooooper quiet round these parts, but that's good news in a way, since quiet = busy. I'm wrapping up edits on Power Play: Awakening with Cat Grant (yeah, a bit uncomfortably down to the wire on that one, I know), and I've started a new project in the Belonging Verse. I'm only about 6,000 words into it so far, and I'm not quite sure what shape it's taking or where it's going, but it follows a freeman with a heavy load on his shoulders, and I'm pretty sure he'll be auctioning his virginity to pay the bills >:D

Anyway, more on that as it develops, but it may be a bit slow. In the meanwhile, Devon from Master Class is being interviewed today in the Kinky Kiss and Tell event. Wanna learn Nicky's weirdest habit? (It's pretty weird.) Go check it out! :-)

New Release, Woot! :D

And we're off! (A day early, even--horray for Riptide!) You can download it now at the Riptide site only (and at Amazon, B&N, ARe, etc. on Monday), and it still counts as a pre-release until 12 AM Monday morning, so it earns you an entry into Riptide's Free Books for a Year drawing, too :-)

Give me six months, and I'll give you the world.

Brandon McKinney has scraped and sacrificed for what little in life he’s ever had. Though it’s been fifteen years since he escaped his father’s abuse, the damage remains. Trust seems as far out of reach as his dream of becoming an architect, and though he’s come to accept being gay, he can’t deny the shame and confusion he feels at other urges—the deeply-repressed desire to submit.

Jonathan Watkins is a self-made Silicon Valley billionaire whose ex-wife took half his money and even more of his faith. Comfortable as a Dominant but wary of being hurt again, he resorts to anonymous pickups and occasional six-month contracts with subs seeking only a master, not a lover.

When a sizzling back-alley encounter cues Jonathan in to Brandon’s deep-seated submissive side, he makes the man an offer: Give me six months of your life, and I’ll open your eyes to a whole new world. Brandon doesn’t care about that; all he wants is the three million dollars Jonathan’s offering so he can buy the construction company he works for. But he soon learns that six months on his knees is no easy feat, and shame and pride may keep him from all he ever wanted—and all he never dreamed he had any right to have.

Join me and Cat Grant for exclusive excerpts, interviews, behind-the-scenes peeks, and—of course—prizes at the Power Play: Resistance Virtual Book Tour, April 9 through 18, 2012!

Rainbow Book Fair Recap

Last weekend, I attended the Rainbow Book Fair on behalf of Riptide Publishing. It was actually more fun this year than last year, which I didn't think was possible, so next year, if you find yourself able to make it down to NYC for the day, definitely do--you won't be sorry!

Lots of amazing things and amazing people, authors as well as readers. It's so wonderful to talk to folks, and especially interesting to connect with people who don't read ebooks or maybe even have computers, who come to the Fair to look for stories about people like themselves finding well-deserved happiness and love, to hear their joy and finding so many gems, to see people wheeling out whole suitcases full of reading material to last them until the next Fair. I seriously could gush about the RBF forever, so I'm just going to stop myself now and share some photos with you instead, beneath the jump. (As always, click to embiggen.)

Win Tons of Prizes with the MFRW Leap Year Blog Hop!

Today is a rare occurrence round these parts for two reasons. For one, it's a leap year, and I'm celebrating with a lovely group of authors by joining in a blog hop and giving away some free books. I've put up all my first-in-series stuff: Counterpoint, Anchored, and Master Class, and you can win just by commenting on this post. There are lots of other great prizes to go around too, so be sure to visit all the other blogs on the hop!

My other rare occurrence is that I finished the first draft of a novel today--Power Play: Awakening, the sequel to Power Play: Resistance and the final novel in the two-book BDSM kinkapalooza that is the Power Play series. That happens more than once every four years, thank God, but not so much that it isn't worth a moment's celebration :-) So to my lovely co-author Cat Grant and to all you lovely readers out there, I say Yay! and Thank you for sticking it out with me. I wish I could celebrate by showing you cover pretties for PPA (to the left are some cover pretties for PPR, so you can see why I'm so anxious to see what our brilliant artist will come up with next!), but how about a brief snippet of sneak-preview smut, instead? :-D

Its, erm, pretty smutty--and also D/s; our poor sub is getting covered in clothespins--so, sneak peek beneath the jump. Before I cut to that, though, just a quick note that I'll be drawing the winner of the Nook from my Valentine's Day Spread the Love contest at the same time I draw the winner of the three free books for the Leap Year Blog Hop contest :-) Now then, smut beneath the jump!

Happy Valentines Day to you all! I've lots of love to spread today, and every time I look at where I am and what I'm doing and how much fun I'm having all because you amazing, wonderful, generous, enthusiastic readers out there, I just want to spread some more <3

So, three fun things going on today:

1) Today's the last day to enter my drawing for a classic Nook pre-loaded with all my titles. Rules are here :-)

2) If you leave a comment on this blog post sharing why you love to read romance, I will send you something fun. Might be swag, might be a free ebook, might be a shiny new paperback romance in need of a loving home.

3) Riptide Publishing is holding its first-ever sale today! For today only, until 11:59 PM EST, every title on the Riptide website is 25% off. No coupon codes needed, no limits, no restrictions. Even the pre-sale titles are on sale. And guess which title was just this evening made available for pre-sales? You guessed it!

Click to embiggen that bit of lovely, which is hitting the streets on April 9. Unless you pre-order, of course, in which case you'll get to download it on April 7. Nervous Author will be nervous until then ~_~

That's all for now, folks. I'm off to work on the second Power Play novel, but I promise to re-emerge from the writing cave to draw a winner for the Nook contest later this week.

Happy Valentine's Day, my lovelies!
