2012 Celebrations, Nominations, and Annihilations

With 2012 winding to a close, I’m looking forward to a New Year’s Eve spent playing board games with my family. If this sounds tame, rest assured it is not. We are some of the most savage, unforgiving, and ambitious people ever to sit down to a game of Logo, Trivial Pursuit, Scrabble, or Fact or Crap. We tried You’ve Been Sentenced a few years ago, but we got so apoplectic that we had to stop and we ended up giving the game away.

I plan to make annihilating the people I love my final act of 2012, and if I should fail, I will spend the entirety of 2013 plotting my revenge. I hope you all have equally joyous NYEs.

Um, Best Way to End a Year Ever

Lisa Henry and I have been offered a contract for The Good Boy, the project I talked about in The Next Big Thing Blog Hop. It’s a tale of lust, greed, abuse, love, redemption, puppy play, and bad tacos, and it’ll be coming your way at some unspecified date in 2013 from Loose Id. So excited!

We're Not Worthy!

Some happy news for my books:

By His Rules was nominated for Best Debut Book, Best BDSM, and Best Slave/DubCon in the Goodreads M/M Group's Member's Choice Awards.

Wacky Wednesday was nominated for Best Humorous Story and Best BDSM.

Calling the Show snagged noms for Best BDSM, Best YA Characters, and Best Overall Book of 2012

Lots of great books and authors were nominated, and I’m honored to be in their company.
Over at Joyfully Jay’s Best of 2012 Roundup, Calling the Show made the Favorite Books of 2012 and Favorite Young Love Stories lists, Wacky Wednesday and CtS made Favorite BDSM, and Jesse and Sim from CtS scored a Favorite Couple nod.
Again, so many awesome books on these lists. This is my Wayne and Garth moment.


And That’s Not All…

On December 31-January 1, Head over to the New Year’s Kisses Party at Kay Berrisford’s blog! The party is co-hosted by Tara Lain, so stop by her place too. Kay and Tara have collected first kiss scenes from over fifty romances. You get to read some sweet and steamy excerpts, and, if you like, answer some questions for a chance to win a $35 GC and a slew of ebooks. Jesse and Sim’s first kiss is featured!

Bow chicka chicka BOWWWW (that’s me trying to spell porn music.)



  1. Happy New Year1 Looking forward to seeing the ass-end of 2012!

    1. Happy New Year to you too! I agree--bye, 2012.

  2. Congratulations, Rock! Well deserved recognition. Keep doing whatcha do. Happy New Year!

    1. Thanks M.C.! Happy New Year to you too.

      With an hour left to go to 2013, I've suffered a humiliating defeat in Scrabble, but enjoyed a resounding victory in Trivial Pursuit. But it was team TP. So I'm not sure what sort of omen this is for 2013.

      I'll say a good one.

  3. Congrats on the GR nominations, and on the Joyfully Jay Favourite Books list! Yay for you, and 2013 can only be bigger and better!

    1. Congrats to you too! It's awesome to see The Island get so much well-deserved recognition. And I think we've got a pretty good start to 2013 lined up...
