Very cool review for my Halloween Sip "Haunted" by Cassie at Joyfully Reviewed.

A snippet:

Haunted is a sweet tale that despite its melancholy tone has a satisfying ending.

Nothing like discovering a cool review to put a nice cap on a Friday night. :)

Remember Wiseguys, my original fic at Torquere Press? Torquere just published my Christmas sequel, Wiseguys: Christmas in Idaho.



Yes indeedy, the wiseguys have a naughty tale for you for Christmas. ;)

Here's the summary:

Wiseguys Tony and Carter are back, and they're in Idaho for Christmas, thanks to the snow. When Carter decides he wants to learn to ski, they head for the local supply shop, bonding a little with the owner. Things go awry for the pair, though, and they're not sure they'll even survive the holiday. Can Tony and Carter make it through?

And here's a little snippet:

Tony decided to stay in Idaho a while when he woke up that first morning, still dog-tired from driving, and saw Carter standing naked by the room's lone window, the drapes cracked open, watching the snow fall. )

Happy Halloween! And what better way to celebrate than with a sexy story -- or twenty-six sexy stories. ;)

This year I'm part of Torquere's Halloween Sip Blitz, a group of twenty-six short stories, each with a spooky theme. All twenty-six stories can be purchased for $27.95 (a savings of 15% over individual cover price), or if you'd like, you can buy them one at a time, like my short story Haunted which is available here for $1.29.

Here's the summary for Haunted from Torquere:

Marc and Vic get one night a year together. Just one night when Marc comes back just like he has for the last ten years. When Marc starts thinking about how it must hurt Vic to have so little time with him, he knows he has to do something to stop the cycle, that he needs to give Vic a chance at a better life. Can Vic convince him that there's way for them to stay together?

Everyone who knows my writing should know the answer to that question, mushybutt romantic that I am *g*, but it's how they get there that makes the story. Hope you all enjoy it!

My first individual Torquere press publication is out!

Wiseguys is available here for $1.29.

Here's what Torquere has to say about it:

Tony's family isn’t your average bunch of relations. His uncle Sid is a mob boss with connections. Tony finds himself a little out of his league, aside from his friend and bodyguard, Carter. When the family business falls to him, Tony has a tough decision to make. Stay and do a job he hates, or take Carter and run. Even if he can get away, Tony's not sure he and Carter can make a life together. What does the future hold for these wiseguys?

And here's a small snippet )

Wiseguys already has two good reviews on the Torquere site, which I'm really jazzed about. :) After a crap week, this is a nice way to start Sunday.

As pointed out by [livejournal.com profile] vdiamond, Animal Attraction got a very cool review on Rainbow Reviews, including a nice mention of my story, "Make Me Beg." :) In case you missed it, Animal Attraction is available at Torquere Books for $5.95.

I have a couple of delicious new icons courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] sagittariusgirl. *points at icon* Thanks, sweetie! Very inspirational ;)

I've sent back the edits on Wiseguys, an upcoming Torquere publication in their Sip line. As soon as it's available, I'll post the link here. For now, check out Temporary Absentee by Laney Cairo and Learning to Love Yourself by Angela Benedetti. Each is available for $1.29 at Torquere.

I have official word now that my story "Chameleon" will be included in the Screaming Orgasms anthology edited by Shanna Germain. :D That's my second gay erotica sale, and especially nice since it's not a strictly gay anthology.

As soon as I find out when and where the anthology will be available, I'll post that information here.

Nice way to start out a Thursday morning. :)

HARD HATS
Gay Erotic Tales
Editor: Neil Plakcy
Publisher: Cleis Press

The painter with one loose overall strap, artfully displaying a pierced nipple. The electrician standing on a ladder, his hard cock pressing against the fabric of his jeans, just at eye level. The plumber whose tool belt drags his pants down, revealing a tempting ass crack.

What gay man hasn’t fantasized about sexy construction workers? I hope you’ll consider your hottest construction worker fantasy and write it up for my new anthology. I’m looking for well-developed characters, real plots that arise out of the construction site, and hot, man-on-man action. Think about hookups in unfinished men’s rooms, behind a pile of lumber, in a site trailer—and with guys from every trade. Here is a list of trades you might want to consider:

brick layer
cabinetmaker
carpenter
communications installer
concrete worker
crane operator
drywall hanger
earthmover
electrician
engineering contractor
excavator
fire alarm
framer
glazer
HVAC/tin knocker
insulator
iron worker
laborer
landscaper
mason
painter
paper hanger
phone installer
pipe fitter
plumber
roofer
tile setter
welder

Story length: 3,000 ­ 5,000 words
Deadline: June 30, 2007
Publication Date: 2008

Payment: $60.00 per story, payable on publication, plus 1 copy of the book.
Submit your story to Neil Plakcy at plax@bellsouth.net as a MS word attachment.

Happy writing!

Welcome

Welcome to my livejournal. :) It's a little boring right now, but I'll be sprucing up the place.

I've just signed the contract for my first erotica sale, a short story called "Make Me Beg" which will be published in the online anthology Animal Attraction by Torquere Press in August of this year. I have another sale pending. As soon as I sign the contract for that one, I'll announce it here too.
