We are at the long end of this brilliant month of moustache
growth, we are at the point that our men have something impressive to cover their
upper lips, and maybe thinking of styling ideas for the week ahead. Yet, we all
know when the time runs out, they shave it all off.
I want to thank everyone who supported me. I’m not
sure how much it was, but I know It’s not a lot, which is fine, because my plan
is, and has always been going in as I wish to stay and every year, the whole
series will go into donations.
So let’s go into a round up for this book, a month
Like I said not many people have bought it, I understand
why, I’m new, there isn’t anything I can do for that. Add that I self-published
it, along with the fact that I didn’t blanket promote, hell, I pretty much
forgot the book existed, which is horrible since I loved this book so much.
So, in conclusion the unsuccessfulness of this book
lays on my feet alone, and I can live with that.
With that sadness aside, I have had some wonderful
reviews from the book, most of which teared me up when I first read them, and I’m
sure they will again
when I reread them.
liked the end one the note that though I defiantly dropped the ball on things
this time around, it doesn’t mean my love for this book hasn’t shined through
every single word. that I didn’t take my time making sure this wasn’t a risk,
it’s not a risk to read this book. it shows that you can beat prostate cancer
and come out in nearly the same condition as you went in.
wanted a love story, and I believe that’s what I’ve give you all. It’s just the
problems with being a newbie, writing a short story, which I think probably
helped a lot as I didn’t draw out the disease. And you get a long happy ever
after as a result. You can love my characters because they’re going to be there
when you’re done.
to everyone who bought the book, I’ll do better next year, as I’m hoping in a
whole it will sit better, being as book 2 isn’t written yet, and even if I did
write it, right now, it would be ready in a week, rather than take me months.
have a look at what others see what other have to say, it may be just what you’re
looking for in a sweet loving story to get you in the Christmas mood.
This week’s theme is sexy thanksgiving. It then goes
on to say “we know what you’re thinking” but I honestly have no clue what
Thanksgiving is about, only from what I’ve seen on telly, and I haven’t truly paid
any attention to it.
not my country. Not my traditions.
Tho the gist is its about family time. With the added “sexiness”
involved. Which I’m guessing could be wanting to start a family, reintroducing
yourself to your family, that sort of connections. I have only one person who
can’t back into the fold of his family, and so here’s a snippet from Moonlit
Wolves 5: A Werewolf’s Howl
And… let’s all keep a secret and not count how many paragraphs
I just put up
A cold hairy body woke Brad up when it crawled into bed and snuggled up
“Fuck, babe,” Brad muttered as he pulled it close around him. “Whatcha
have, an ice shower?”
Kyle’s sleepy slur was barely legible as he spoke into Brad’s hair.
“Pretty much. Wanted to get to you.”
“Oh…how sweet,” he even managed to say without cracking up.
“Come on, babe.” Kyle sounded more awake as he rolled Brad onto his
back. “Let it out before you crack a rib.”
Brad’s smile was so wide as Kyle’s head came down and captured them in
a kiss that heated up everything in Brad. Fingers touched cool hairy skin,
gripping at it, pulling Kyle in closer. He needed him to be closer to him.
“So when are we leaving?” Kyle mumbled as they broke apart for air.
“Huh?” Yeah, huh?
“When are we leaving for your place? I can come, right?”
“What will ya do for work?” Just react. Remember, think later, when
Kyle shrugged. “I can work here, right? You don’t live that far away.”
“Just like that.”
“Just like that.” He pressed a light kiss to on Brad’s lips. “Fuck,
babe, I’ve been dreaming of just this for years.”
And onto the pimping and other random facts linked
to this hop
I decided to give Payhip a try, by adding my books, I’m
not sure if it’ll even work, but I like the idea of having an option. At any
rate, in the long run I’d love nothing more than to have my own site for sales,
so why not start as I wish to go forward.
And, well, as an added bonus each book will be
discounted, just as an added bonus
If you wish for a different file, please tell me and
I’ll add it for you (I’m currently only using the 3 main file types)
The rest of
I have always wanted to have something that was just
coming to me. I understand the idea isn’t great, that people probably won’t
bother. Mostly I’ll put these to Amazon buyers, as they love Amazon for it’s
one click buy option.
I, as a consumer, don’t like Amazon for that reason,
I don’t like using me credit card, and I hate that I’ve had to put it in. it’s
for you guys who might like a different option, or just the one that comes with
a discount on all my own titles year round.
At the moment each title will display itself on the
payhip site for 50cents cheaper, than anywhere else because I’m mostly not
smart enough to figure out a % and I thought it was a good deal. Like I said,
we’ll see how things move from here, and I’ll update you in 6 months’ time when
I know what’s what.
I also have this plan, if I can get books ready
faster for the future, where they just sit and wait, to have them appear on
payhip first, they will have that added discount, and then, a week later, or so
they will go up everywhere else. I’d like for payhip to be my pre-order site,
you want it straight away this is where you’ll get it from, you want it
anywhere else, and you’ll have to wait.
I said, it’ll be a wait and see kind of deal. Awkwardly though because I’m
technically a no one, there is that longer wait for people to want to read me
enough that they can’t wait, and I understand and know I’m not anywhere near
there yet. If I will ever become it.
as I’ve said above, I’m going in as I plan to be, so unless something happens
with payhip, it will stay and I’ll trug through until you all notice the
greatness of my presales.
The books that were
forgotten in the rush of all things new, or just weren’t loved on as much as
they should have been, these are our genre’s backlist, maybe you’ll find
something old to love like it’s new
My Roommate’s a Jock? Well,
Crap! by Wade Kelly
First Published 31st of

Contemporary LGBT Romance
It's easy to become cynical when life never goes your way.
Cole Reid has been a social recluse since he was fifteen, when he was
outed by his high school baseball team. Since then, his obsessive-compulsive
behavior and sarcastic nature have driven away most of the population, and
everyone else hates him because he's gay. As he sees it, he's bound to repulse
any prospective friends, let alone boyfriends, so why bother?
By the time Cole enters college, he's become an anal-retentive
loner—but it's not a problem until his roommate graduates and the housing
department assigns Ellis Montgomery to move in with Cole. Ellis is messy,
gorgeous, straight, and worst of all, a "jock"!
During a school year filled with frat buddies, camping expeditions, and
meddling parents, Cole and Ellis develop a friendship that turns Cole's glass-half-empty
outlook on its head. There must be more to Ellis than a fun-loving jock—and
maybe Cole's reawakening libido has rekindled his hope for more than
Why is this
important to you? What makes it special? What do you hope other will get out of
The November series is the first book I have ever
written and published that has meant this much to me. I’m not saying my other
ones hadn’t been important, but they didn’t give me butterfly just because they
I wrote this book at the beginning of the year right
before I started editing for the Moonlit Wolves series, it was around my first
writers block. Okay, so maybe not my first as I have this thing of not writing
when my children are home, and they had been on school holidays for 3 weeks by
the time my fingers itched and I had to write, but nothing was coming to mind.
I did a list, which had me interested in the
research, and once I started reading the story just flowed from me.
I have been in love with it ever since. I’ve worked
extra hard to try and get it as perfect as possible, but I fear. I fear more
than I probably will with other in the series, because I wrote it before I
fully understood the industry, and I mean understand it in a way that can only
come by public opinion.
I haven’t written this book, nor will I write the
series, in a way to tell you the technical happenings for each health problem,
for one, because I haven’t experiences most of them first hand, and for another
reason because no every experiences the same thing.
I also wanted it to be more about the emotions, more
about the people around the sick person, the caregivers.
I want to bring out the most stressful moments, the
ones we tend to forget or look over because they were hard and yet they were
selfish moments, but they are just as important as the surgeries or treatments,
meetings and programs. Those silent moments of complete loss and selfishness
are just as important and they are something we all feel and even though we
still, won’t feel comfortable with them, we are allowed to know others are
feeling it too.
This one, especially is about a man who is scared
shitless of being trapped, but becomes more so at being left alone. He becomes
an emotional outlet, a rock in ways he never thought he’d be able to do. And he
allows himself to feel love for a man he’s been falling for since the moment
And yeah, that might be a spoiler in some people’s
eyes, but this is a HEA romance, what else was meant to happen, lol
