So, welcome to the first Kermit Flail of the year!
It’s a little bit small, and that’s my fault–I was thin on social media over the last few weeks for family reasons, but I’m SO pleased about the people who submitted!
Alix Bekins and Connie Bailey are some of my oldest and best friends in the writing business. They write because they love it, and they teamed up together because they’re great friends and they wrote sci-fi because it’s their passion and they’re both funny, witty, awesome people and I’m so happy to see them writing for the helluva it again, and SO proud to have them on my blog!
And Mercy Celeste! Who hasn’t heard of Mercy Celeste! She breaks your heart every time! This book looks like no exception and I’m proud to host it on my blog 🙂
And as for me? I’ve got a book that folks have been waiting for–for a long time at that! Can you guess? I bet you can–and if you haven’t read the rest of the series watch this space, and follow me on social media for some sales going on so you can read the whole whack of them without going broke!
So exciting stuff–and some much needed good news.
Let’s have a better year, everyone!!!
Song and Key

The Men from GLEN
Dreamspun Beyond | #11
For two secret agents on a mission to a secluded Romanian village, the toughest fight they face may not be against the folktale monsters lurking in the foggy mountains and old ruins, but against their unlikely attraction to each other.
Keller Key is the top operative at the covert Global Law Enforcement Network—and boy, does he know it. Sexy half-Ukrainian, half-Korean Sevastyan Song is a close second. When the agents go undercover to investigate an old friend’s suspicious death, it soon becomes clear something sinister is afoot in the ancient forest and decrepit abbey. If an evil organization doesn’t spell the end of them, the angry locals might. But if they’re going to conquer their enemies, they need to keep their hands off each other and their minds on the case, in a rivals-to-lovers paranormal mash-up that gives new meaning to spy-on-spy action.

Death Waits for No One
Former Marine Chad Mayes planned to honor his father’s last wishes and lay him to rest in California.
Estranged from his family for so long he wasn’t prepared to return to the life he left or the people he barely remembered. He planned to do his duty and drift away to figure out his place in life.
That was the plan, right up until he laid eyes on his first crush.
An emergency call from his best friend requesting a get together sent him packing north. He went, never expecting his world to be flipped upside down when the Marine, half his age, walked in the door.
The plan was to scatter his best friend’s ashes. Not end up on a trek through the woods, with his friend’s son.
But what exactly does a free spirit and a lost soul do in the woods? Alone. For days. In one tent… when one is one’s best friend’s son and should be off limits.
Chad and Skip are about to find out.
Book 2 in the Adventures INK series. Should be read in order.

Vern Roberts couldn’t wait to turn eighteen and get the hell out of Dogpatch, California. But city living is expensive, and he’s damned desperate when Dex from Johnnies spots him bussing tables.
As “Bobby,” he’s a natural at gay porn. Soon he’s surrounded by hot guys and sex for the taking, but it’s not just his girlfriend back in Dogpatch—or her blackmailing brother—that keeps him from taking it. It’s the sweet guy who held the lights for his first solo scene, who showed him decency, kindness, and a smile.
Reg Williams likes to think he’s too stupid to realize what a shitty hand life dealt him, but Bobby knows better. What Reg lacks in family, opportunity, education, and money, he makes up for in heart. One fumbling step at a time, they connect, not just in their hearts but in their bodies, where sex that’s not on camera, casual, or meaningless, becomes the most important thing in the world.
But Reg is hampered by an inescapable family burden, and he and Bobby will never fly unless he can find a way to manage it. Can he break the painful link to his unrealized childhood and grow into the love Bobby wants to give?
