Upcoming stories

The first two are written and available for pre-order.  I'll have a pre-order up for "Cold Hands" soon (and will edit in the link). [*edit* Link added!] Fireproof is still in the first draft stages!

There are several more upcoming stories that don't have finalized covers yet.  :-)  I'm hoping to have one story released each month this year.  We shall see if that works out.

Lots of things in store...I hope!!  :-)

On a personal level, I'm working on trying to keep from getting so overwhelmed by things and taking care of myself when I need to (emotionally, mentally, etc.).  I'm also working hard at edits!

The Way to Joe

Yeah, Seth knows Joe is a little older--but he doesn't realize the foxy gentleman is thirty years older. Twenty-three vs. fifty-three is kind of a big deal. Is there any chance for things to work out between a laid-back surfer and an older guy with heart problems and an overly chivalrous nature?

A Happy Ending for Lowell

Hey guys!  You know my story about Sean and Tom, My Partner the Wolf?  Well, I have another one coming out soon, My Partner and Me, this time from Sean's point of view.  I'm working hard on the edits as we speak!

Anyway, a buddy of mine mentioned wishing that Lowell (who's kind of a bad guy in these stories!) could have a happy ending, reform, find someone who'd make him happy, etc.  I said I'd like to read that but didn't think I could write it right now.  I said they were welcome to write it, though, if they wanted to.

Guess what I got for Christmas?  That very story, written just for me!  I was over the moon--it was soooo good!  It made me like Lowell and want the best for him.  They made the character into somebody I could love.

Anyway, I encouraged my buddy to go ahead and publish this story.  I really think it's an awesome read.  I feel honored that A. Russo's first published story is based on one of my characters!!  And I hope they'll write many other things in future, too.

Anyway you can read the story on the Kindle, if you are also interested:

Someone's Favorite
A. Russo

Lowell hasn't been the best partner in the past. Two tumultuous relationships and a year of self-reflection have taught him a lot about himself and he doesn't like what he sees. He knows he isn't perfect, but he's trying to become a better person. However, he's afraid to fall back into old patterns and lacks the confidence he used to have. When he meets Adam, he's immediately taken by the man's kind heart and positive attitude. Will the love of a good man be able to restore Lowell's faith in himself, or is he truly destined never to be anyone's favorite again?

It's very sweet and a total feel good read for me.
(It's also available on Kindle Unlimited.)

Oh, if you haven't read my stories, I think you could just read this as a rather sweet contemporary read with a bit of angst in it, and a happy ending.  :-D

story by Carol Davis

A short, sweet gay romance, about summers of love and loss... 

Jeremy Cole is a success, by anyone's standards: he runs a popular online magazine, and two of his books have hit the best-seller lists. Though he's quiet and a little clumsy, his family and friends adore him. But throughout his life, he's known there was something missing - the person who would make him complete. Someone he met years ago, during a summer he spent at the lake with his grandparents. Someone who sent him postcards and dozens of little gifts, someone who led him on great adventures... and then disappeared from his life, only to return a decade later. Someone who comes and goes on a whim, chasing a goal Jeremy can't begin to understand. 

After his grandmother's death, Jeremy is faced with selling his family's treasured summer home - and with deciding, once and for all, what to do about Charlie, the only man he's ever loved.

It's on Amazon (and can be borrowed through Kindle Unlimited).  It's sweet rather than sexy, and I found it a very satisfying and fun read.  


Carol has been my proofreader on several stories recently.  I like working with her, and she's very nice. So...I was excited when she told me she was writing a gay romance short story for the first time, trying her hand at a story idea she'd had.  She let me read it, and I was blown away by how much I liked it.  

It felt like a pretty big responsibility to me to be the one to read it first, but I'm happy to say I loved it.  I hope she'll write lots more in future.  I'm always looking for new authors to read.  :-D

To a great editor and a great writer, best wishes for 2015!!

Being mates makes everything perfect--doesn't it?

Sean is happy with his mate, Tom. As far as he's concerned, life is golden. Except for when it isn't. Their work is dangerous.
