...and it's my turn today! If you hop on over to Brief Encounters you'll be able to find out the sad truth about my culinary and motoring skills (or rather, lack thereof)!

Somewhat belatedly letting you know I'm over at [livejournal.com profile] torquere_social today, celebrating the release of Tortoise Interruptus
tortoise final

Pop along over if you get a mo - there will be a chance to win the story later! :)

Yup, I do indeed have many things to talk about. Don't worry; I shall probably forget half of them!

First, before it slips my well-greased mind entirely: I have a new release:

tortoise final

This one is dedicated to [livejournal.com profile] tiggothy, who when told of the real life incident this book is based on, said, "Tortoise-napping? Sounds a good start for a silly story..."

Here's the blurb: Cursed by an impatient witch to turn into a tortoise at inopportune moments, Tip is horrified to find himself tortoise-napped by a customer at the cafe where he works.

Things start to look up when Tip ends up very literally in the capable hands of drop-dead gorgeous Steve—but Tip soon begins to wonder just how far he can trust Steve, who turns out to have a close connection with his kidnapper. Tip's attempts at a normal life seem doomed to remain frustrated in more ways than one!

You can read an excerpt here. :)

Second: this, on Stumbling Over Chaos amuses me. Doesn't he look cute with wings? ;)

Third: A lovely review for Someplace in this World in Queer Magazine Online

Fourth: The British are coming!

I have been incredibly bad at posting so far this year, so I now feel obliged to make a sort of "I aten't dead" post before even I cease to believe it!

I do have some excuse – I've been busy doing edits for A Wish Too Far, my third story about Rael the male succubus, which comes out, I believe, on Saturday!

A Wish Too Far

Plus, there has been a cover art form for Tortoise Interruptus, which is a very silly story indeed (thank you, [livejournal.com profile] tiggothy).

Whilst nursing the traditional New Year's hangover, I managed to finish off the first draft of Wight Mischief, my second full-length novel. It has murder! And mayhem! And a secret tunnel! ;) Oh, and a couple of hot guys, of course!

And I have also been doing edits for the very talented [livejournal.com profile] josephine_myles, who has just completed her first novel, Barging In – and a cracking good read it is too! :D
For news on that, plus regular entertaining posts on an exhausting list of subjects including Britspeak, tropes and a Word of the Week, make sure you check out her lj!

Hurrah! Recently I posted about a visit to the Isle of Wight Garlic Farm, and wittered on about how I'd only done one m/m vampire story. Well, no sooner rambled than rectified, and I'm now happy to report that a second one, Leeches and Layabouts, has been accepted by Torquere and will appear in the Mine anthology, due out in Octoberish. My story? Well, it's about this vampire. Who owns a garlic farm...

There'll also be a story by the very talented [livejournal.com profile] josephine_myles in there, which I had the pleasure of beta-reading, so the anthology should be a fun read!

To celebrate, I've started work on a tortoise-napping story. [livejournal.com profile] tiggothy, I hope you realise you are entirely to blame for this! ;)

The Isle of Wight was unexpectedly sunny, and I have the sunburn to prove it. On the way back to the ferry we popped into the Garlic Farm, which has a shop full of things to buy to ward off the vampire in your life, assuming you would want to, and stopped in the cafe. Now, this being a garlic farm, you'd think they'd have garlic bread on the menu, wouldn't you? Er, no. Lovely caramelised onion bread with olive oil and balsamic to dunk it in (yum!) but none of the garlic stuff. Maybe they just got tired of people doing bad Peter Kay impersonations?

You know, I still find it hard to believe I've only done one m/m vampire story. I mean, considering how hooked I was on Buffy... Anyway, Becoming the Spoils is now available to buy as part of the Dreamspinner Midsummer's Nightmare Daily Dose or on its own for the princely sum of $1.49, here.

So what's Becoming the Spoils all about? Apart from, well, vampires? Here's the blurb:

Frank’s a rising star in the world of journalism and he’ll do anything for the next big scoop. Getting locked in a cellar with a starving vampire wasn’t exactly on his career plan, though. It’s then that Frank realizes there are some things more important than a story—like staying alive, for instance. Luckily, his cellmate Victor turns out to be more than just a pretty face and a sharp set of fangs…

And here's an excerpt:
