Autism Awareness Month – Blog Hop and Giveaway

Apr 10, 2018 Filed under: Uncategorized

Autism Fact: Autism itself does not affect life expectancy, however research has shown that the mortality risk among individuals with autism is twice as high as the general population, in large part due to drowning and other accidents.

During this month of autism awareness, my hope is that people will take an extra moment to consider how they make assumptions and judgments about others. We could all make the world a friendlier, more peaceful place if we remembered that not all of us think in the same ways. If instead of judging a different way of thinking, processing, or interacting as negative, take the opportunity to try on a different perspective or celebrate the diversity around you. I hope we can all accept each other for who we are, not who someone decides we should be.

Go to RJ Scott’s website to see all the posts in the blog hop.

Giveaway: Comment below with your favorite book or movie with an accepting character—one whose awareness of others touches you—and you’ll have a chance to win your choice of an audio download code for Audible US or any 2 ebooks from my backlist.

My latest release is a bundle of the four m/m novellas in my sexy shapeshifter comedy series, Law and Supernatural Order.

You can buy it at Amazon | Kobo | iBooks | Barnes and Noble | Smashwords

The Law and Supernatural Order Bundle contains four complete humorous shapeshifter novellas. Save 40% off the price of buying them individually.

Sex on the Hoof, Book 1

Deer shifter, Jason Fleetfoot, has turned his life around. After years of taking chances, he’s working as a crime lab technician, and he’s determined to forgo the risky behavior of his past. Then he meets Drew Danvers, the only undead detective in the city. Jason hates vampires, or does he? Drew defies all the stereotypes of his kind and something about him has taken hold of Jason and won’t let go. So Jason might dare to take a chance on a man others would label a risk to his health if not his very life.

Paws on Me, Book 2

When a murder investigation at a shifter nightclub brings owner Brandon Lord and Lieutenant Seth Morrison together, passion roars to life. They’re both willing to break the rules to be together. Because as mismatched as they might seem, each man is exactly what the other needs.

Dinner at Foxy’s, Book 3

Fox shifter Luke runs Foxy’s Chicken Shack, known for the best and spiciest chicken in town. For months he’s had his eye on Silas, a young cop who patrols the area around his restaurant. When Silas arrives to question Luke about his cousins’ criminal activities, things blow up, literally, and Silas is injured. Luke will do whatever it takes to see his cousins brought to justice. He might not survive his crazy plan, but if he does, there could be a chance at love for this fox shifter and his cop.

Hoofin’ it to the Altar, Book 4

Deer shifter Jason Fleetfoot and vampire detective Drew Danvers have been together for a year. When Drew proposes, Jason is thrilled but shocked—vampires aren’t usually the marrying kind, even the few who side with the good guys.

Other books in the Law and Supernatural Order series that are not included: Savage Wolf (an m/f prequel) and Law and Supernatural Order Extras (Coming Soon)

Madlib from the GRL Rural Romance panel

Oct 24, 2017 Filed under: Uncategorized

Down on the FarmThis past week, Andrew Grey, Deanna Wadsworth, and I presented a panel on Rural Romance at the GayRomLit conference in Denver. We all had a blast doing madlibs from our books set in small towns.

Mine was from Down on the Farm and it’s hysterical. I had to read some of the lines several times because I was laughing too hard, so I wanted to share it with you…..

Down on the Farm…An Alternate Version

“Katie!” a man’s enthusiastic bottom called. “Katie, get out of there.”

Beck licked the man. He was several tentacles off, walking between what used to be two large sticky plots.

“Katie. Come.”

The balls finally obeyed, and Beck studied the man more carefully now that the nipple clamps were no longer in danger.

Dear God, was that really Cal? Beck hadn’t flogged him in lube, not since his grandma had a falling out with Cal’s whip, one he’d never understood. Cal had certainly…spanked well. Slowly , at least. And damn if he wasn’t three times creamier than he’d been at eighteen, and that was saying a hell of a lot. His feather duster had widened, and his T-shirt strained over his biceps. Hell, he could probably snowball Beck.

Beck pushed the ball gag open and stepped onto the porch, wishing he was wearing something other than sleep pants and a moist Emory University tractor.

The Past Comes Home is now available in audio!

Twenty years ago, Paxton Marshall realized he liked boys, in particular his brother’s best friend, Brad. Pax now runs a successful art gallery, but he’s never found anyone who stirs his heart the way Brad did.

Brad Watson is back in town for his twentieth high school reunion. However, the celebration of long-ago days is the last thing on his mind. He’s there for one reason: to finally tell Pax how he feels.

Pax is shocked to learn Brad is not only gay but also interested in him. Dating a man in Ames Bridge isn’t as simple as it sound, though. In order to make a relationship work, both men will have to bolster their courage and alter their expectations.

*This book is an expansion of a previously published short story titled Open to the Past. Over 35,000 words have been added.*

Last Valentine’s Day, Gray proposed to his lovers, Jack and Mason. The three of them can’t legally marry, but they’ve spent the summer planning a formal commitment ceremony.

Then they’ll declare their love for each other in the way they’re most comfortable, privately, in bed. Join Gray, Jack, and Mason as they prepare to get hitched.

 

Blog Tour: The Rhubarb Patch by Deanna Wadsworth

Jul 31, 2017 Filed under: Uncategorized

Deanna Wadsworth’s M/M Contemporary, The Rhubarb Patch, is available now!

Add it on Goodreads.

Blurb:

City boy, sci-fi novelist, and recovering pushover Scott Howe doesn’t know what to expect when he inherits his grandmother’s house outside the quaint village of Gilead, Ohio—but it isn’t an enormous bald man in nothing but tighty-whities and orange rubber boots shouting at him to keep his weed wacker away from the rhubarb patch.

Scott has never met anyone like Phineas Robertson: homesteader, recluse… Republican. A tender—if unlikely—friendship grows over the summer while Phin and his schnauzer, Sister Mary Katherine, teach Scott about life in the country and the grandmother he never knew. Opposites attract, but widower Phin worries his secret will send Scott running faster than his politics, and Phin isn’t convinced he deserves a second chance at romance.

Scott is convinced—rural life, and his one-of-a-kind, older neighbor, is the future he wants. Before he can settle in, his mother drops a bombshell that strains their already tenuous relationship, and a cousin who believes he is the rightful heir to the property puts Scott in danger. It’ll take a lot of compromises, and even dodging a few bullets before they’re out of the weeds, but nurturing something as special as true love always takes hard work.

Author Bio:

Deanna Wadsworth might be a bestselling erotica author, but she leads a pretty vanilla life in Ohio with her wonderful husband and a couple adorable cocker spaniels. She has been spinning tales and penning stories since childhood, and her first erotic novella was published in 2010. She has served multiple board positions at her local RWA chapter and is the current President 2017 for Rainbow Romance Writers of America. When she isn’t writing books or brainstorming with friends, you can find her making people gorgeous in a beauty salon. She loves music and dancing, and can often be seen hanging out on the sandbar in the muddy Maumee River or chilling with her hubby and a cocktail in their basement bar. In between all that fun, Deanna cherishes the quiet times when she can let her wildly active imagination have the full run of her mind. Her fascination with people and the interworkings of their relationships have always inspired her to write romance with spice and love without boundaries.

If you’re interested in receiving my books before everyone else and following along more closely with my writing process, then I hope you’ll be as excited as I am about my newest venture.

Today I’m launching a Patreon account. You can become a Patron for as little as $3/month and at the $5/month level you’ll receive every new self-published ebook early as well as other benefits like scenes that were cut from finished books and a quarterly Q&A session. There are other patronage tiers which include getting chapters while I’m still in the editing stage, free audiobooks, and signed print books. Read more about the options here.

Why am I choosing to set up a Patreon? I want to be able to bring you more audiobooks, print options, translations, opportunities to see me at conferences, and other extras. Having monthly contributions will help make this possible.

If this isn’t for you, don’t worry, I’ll still be releasing all my books just as I have been so you won’t be missing out.
