Blog visit with Chris T Kat

You can find me blogging today with Chris T Kat where I’m talking about breaking the rules of writing detective stories. Click here to pop over for a visit.

Rasputin’s Kiss is a romance, a murder mystery and a detective story all rolled in to one. The central characters were the first I ever wrote about and though the story no longer resembles those first tentative scribblings, Alex and Conor are very close to my heart. Already available on early download at Totally Bound, the ebook and print version will both be available on general release on March 7th.


Getting excited…


The general release date for Rasputin’s Kiss is fast approaching and I have lots of blog visits lined up. The first will be with Chris T Kat on Feb. 28th, so I hope you can take a look. I’ll be launching a comment competition shortly and I have a few prizes lined up – I thought I’d offer up a few different things to ring the changes from ebooks! More info to follow, but here’s one of the prizes…



Blog hop winner announced…

Well, I hope you all enjoyed the Power of Gay Love blog hop. I have a blog tour planned for Rasputin’s Kiss and there will be more prizes to win later this month, so if you’re not my blog hop winner, better luck next time!

The sun actually came out here for a couple of hours yesterday and it’s starting to feel like Spring! Thought I’d share a couple of pictures from the garden to cheer up everyone who is stuck with floods and snowstorms…


Oh… nearly forgot… the winner is *drumroll*… humhumbum (great name by the way) who wins an e-copy of Rasputin’s Kiss. I’ll be in touch shortly.


The Power of Gay Love Blog Hop is here!

For my contribution to The Power of Gay Love Blog Hop, I’ve dug out a few of my favourite quotes about love and matched them up with the couples I think they go best with from my books. Let me know what you think… do you have a favourite quote that you would use? I’d also love to know which of my couples you would most like to see in a short Valentine’s Day story. I might get round to writing it by February next year! If you’re not familiar with my work, then welcome and feel free to leave any comment you like, even if it’s just to say hi! All comments will be entered into a draw to win an e copy of Rasputin’s Kiss (or any book from my back list if you already have it). Don’t forget to visit all the other participants too – here’s the link you need.

Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place.– Zora Neale Hurston
