New Novella – More Than A Thousand Words

long_hair_final_reducedI have a new m/m novella out! $2.99 from Smashwords.

More Than A Thousand Words

Steve McCallum is a private security professional, offering protection to London’s rich and secretive elite. When a nanny is attacked and her charge is abducted, Steve works with the police to find the missing baby. A chance meeting with a skirt-wearing artist with an unusual Talent, changes the case along with Steve’s expectations of happiness.

Luce Sherwood overcame tough times as a teenager to become a successful artist. His biggest problem is an unwanted ability to see what people have done in their recent past, but that proves to be a bonus when a kidnapper and the handsome guy pursuing him, crash into his life.

Despite their different backgrounds and very different jobs, the attraction between Steve and Luce can’t be denied. As they use words, touches, texts, and most of all, Luce’s silly cartoons to negotiate the tricky waters of their relationship, you’ll learn why sometimes a picture is worth more than a thousand words.

With thanks to my dear friends who helped and supported me with this.

Also available at All Romance Ebooks!

A new story, new direction?

bonnie_cover_reducedIt’s been an absolute age since I wrote anything, and now I have, it’s het/ff! Very different from anything I’ve written before (except maybe Lindira) and I have no idea if I’ll write more of it. But if you want to check out a porny little piece of BDSM f/f/m for a whole 99cents, then go read Bonnie’s Day At The Office from Smashwords, also available for the same price at All Romance Ebooks.

ENnjoy 🙂

Needful in Finnish

needful_cover_finnish

The wonderful Paula Merensuo has completed her massive undertaking of love, and made available in Finnish, Needful, the final book in the Remastering Jerna series.

Download free from Smashwords here.

Every so often I am approached out of the blue by someone wanting to translate my books for another market (usually French). I’m never interested because I have nothing to judge their work by and I don’t want to lose control or copyright. I never had any issues like that with Paula. For her, this was a task she undertook purely for the benefit of Finnish lovers of m/m books, and with no thought of recompense at all. From all the feedback I’ve seen or had, her translations have been of the highest calibre, and it’s a pleasure to have these books available to the Finns, without any concerns about quality.

Thank you, Paula.

Let me tempt you?

transcription_cover_edOkay, guys. I always knew a non-romance SF novella was going to be a hard sell to my usual readers. So let me tempt you to try Lost in Translation for FREE from Smashwords until  28 February 2015, using code UP67L

Why should you try it? Well, apart from it being a professionally edited novella, it’s got action! Friendship! Mystery! Non-annoying child characters! And it’s short! 🙂

Come on. Stretch yourself. It’ll only hurt a little 🙂

New Story – Lost in Transcription

transcription_cover_ed

I am pleased to announce a new novella.

Pilot Bancilhon Pax doesn’t expect anything but relaxation during some planetary downtime, but news of missing children possibly trafficked for sex can’t be ignored. Pax investigates, a decision which turns the pilot’s ordered, predictable life upside down, and has strange and unexpected consequences for other connected to Pax in ways no one could ever suspect.

Artwork by the wonderful PL Nunn.

This story is not a romance. It has no sexual – or indeed gendered – content of any kind. It’s just straightforward science fiction. And you can buy it for just US$0.99 FREE from Smashwords until 7 February, 2015, 28 February 2015, using code UP67L

Enjoy!

Get all Darshian Tales for $4 – with spiffy new covers!

keisgiftplnunnThe covers for the Darshian Tales have never been fantastic, because I’m not a designer. So I finally commissioned my good friend and wonderful artist, PL Nunn, to create new covers for all four books.

To celebrate, I am offering all four books for US$1 each through Smashwords until November 21. Coupon codes are:

Kei’s Gift: ER79V

Falling from the Tree: QM72T

Staying Power: EB42W

Home Ground: NE99L

Being my oldest books, they suffer from my not knowing as much about telling stories and writing as I do ten years on, but I think they’re still enjoyable. Why not try them and see if you agree? 🙂

Click on the images below to see them in full size. The print book versions will be updated shortly

“Remastering Jerna” in Finnish!

remastering_jerna_cover_finnish_sm

remastering_jerna_cover_finnish_smA Finnish reader contacted me a while ago and offered to translate my book, since there is very little of this kind of material in the Finnish language. I was wary because I would have no way of checking the quality of her translation. I agreed she could translate it so long as she didn’t try and sell the book, or claim copyright over it.

I figured that would deter anyone, but nothing daunted, Paula Merensuo went ahead, and not only translated the book, but sent it out for assessment by other English speaking Finns. They approved, and let me know, so I’m happy to announce that “Jernan uusi isäntä” (“Jerna’s New Master”) is now available for free at Smashwords.

Remember, the translation is copyright Paula Merensuo, and the translated version must not be sold or put up for download anywhere without my permission. Other than that, if you are a Finnish speaker – enjoy!

(And if you have comments on the translation, please let me know and I will pass them onto Paula.)

And…I’m back!

Safe and sound and not even too jetlagged (thank you Singapore Airlines business class, ooh you are so awesome!)

It was all amazing. Iceland was even more stunning than I imagined, and Norway lives up to all the hype and then some. In no particular order, here are my own personal invented awards: Continue reading

Up, up and away!

This time tomorrow I’ll be on a plane heading to London, where we catch a flight to Iceland. And then, hopefully, will follow six and a half weeks of wonderful scenery, great food and exciting things to do in Scandinavia and thereabouts. So if there’s a delay in my answering emails or the like…it’ll be because I’m having too much fun 🙂

I’ve put all the Darshian Tales up on All Romance Ebooks now, but don’t buy them from there until after the end of July. Because until 31 July, Smashwords’ sale is still on, and you can get all my self-published books from there for 50% off using code SSW50.

See you all again in mid-September!

Disabled protagonists

means_of_support_cover_smI thought some readers might appreciate a list of my books which feature disabled protagonists, so I’ve created a category so you can find them easily.

These are the characters: Dylan in Twin Effect is an amputee, as is Evan in Means of Support. Lindira is blind, as is Connor in Somatesthesia (though he has bionic implants which give him artificial sight.) Paole in Many Roads Home is blind in one eye. Dharn in Learning to Dharn is deaf. Dek in Walk a Lonesone Road and Dinan in Going Down both suffer from PTSD. Juimei in Home Ground has hemiplegia from a traumatic brain injury.
