It’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.
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.
Okay, 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 🙂
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.
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
For those of you who just want the fics, the sales, the covers – there is a new account you can follow, without having to read about anything I have to say about life, the universe, and everything. Don’t forget the current sale on the Darshian Tales until 30 November!
The 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? 🙂

A 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.)
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 →
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 🙂
All the sales and discounts are finished now, which is sad for you and for me. For you, if you missed out, and for me, for the same reason, because I hate to see people paying full price when they can buy the books cheaper!
But, if you did manage to snaffle one or more of my books during the sales, as always, I would be incredibly grateful if you would rate and review (honestly!) the book at Amazon, Goodreads, Smashwords or wherever. I’m also always delighted to hear from you through email, or on Twitter (which happened just this morning, yay!)
Well, it’s been a long time coming, but Remastering Jerna is finally available in ebook format! Remastering Jerna is a complex, erotic story of redemption, love, and the contract of trust in a relationship of control and submission. If you’re thinking it’s another Fifty Shades of Grey, think again 😉

Not only that, you can download the two sequels for free! That’s 3 whole novels (plus one short story) for $2!
