My alter ego’s new short is released today. It’s the first of a series of short stories, but can be read as a standalone. More details below:
Flynn’s new boss is so hot he can’t wait to get home to tell the chatroom how much he wants Dom’s cock down his throat. By Friday, he’s shared quite a few thoughts on what he’d like his boss to do to him. But he’s not as anonymous as he thinks, and Dom’s intent on disciplining him for breaching company policy on social networking. Dom gives him a choice of put up or shut up: he can play out the fantasy in real life, or he can walk out of the office without a word to HR as long as he never talks that way about Dom again. Flynn chooses “put up”—but he’s forgotten about one of the things he said he wouldn’t mind doing.

Knotting the Tie is out today. And… it’s currently free. It will probably remain free indefinitely at Loose Id, although official list price is $1.25. You’ll need to sign up for a Loose Id account to download it, but they don’t spam. You can read an excerpt at the book catalogue page before you sign up. (And thanks to Predatrix and Neyronrose for beta-reading this at very short notice. :-)
Knotting the Tie
After a year together, Alex knows what he has with Robin is for life, and he wants to stand up and say so in public. It’s time to propose, and he’s doing it the old fashioned way – roses, champagne and going down on one knee. But it may take more than that to persuade Robin it’s safe to put the past behind him. Maybe even more than the persuasive powers of a glass of champagne and going down on both knees…
This is a standalone sequel short story to Nice Tie – it’s the story of Alex proposing to Robin, but you can read it without knowing anything about the novel.
Available now at the Loose Id website: http://www.loose-id.com/knotting-the-tie.html
I’ve been experimenting with self-publishing some of my old short stories that have gone out of print. After much angst, I’ve managed to upload “One Size Fits All” to Smashwords, and am awaiting the results from feeding it into the maw of Amazon.
This one’s priced at 99c, but I have also been playing with the coupon code generator on Smashwords. Plug the code RE95K into the appropriate place (ooh er, missus) before Monday, and get 100% off. And all I ask in return is for some feedback on whether the file actually works in your viewing device of choice…
You can find the book at https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/376309
Blurb: Hugh’s everything that Gavin could ask for in a lover. Everything, apart from his taste in underwear. Nothing wrong with the underwear, you understand, but that’s the problem. It’s boring. So Gavin decides to have a rummage through Hugh’s underwear, just in case there’s anything more interesting tucked away. And what he finds is so interesting that he tries it out for size…
m/m erotic romance, very mild kink, 3000 words.
Today’s cat vacuuming has been learning how to use SmashWords by uploading my shaving erotica short story “Naked”, which you can now find in a variety of ebook file formats at:
It’s been on my website as a basic html page for a long time, so many of you will have already seen it, but I’d appreciate any comments about whether the shiny new file formats actually work. Also, it now has cover art. :-)
When Bill found a porn mag at the back of his boyfriend’s cupboard, it wasn’t just any porn mag. Bill hadn’t known until then that Kevin was into shaving — or that it might turn him on too. Now he’s finding out what it means to be… completely naked.
Right, chaps and chapesses, the new story is out on Friday next week, which means it’s time for the traditional competition to entice you to read the blurb. If you’d like the chance to win a copy, go over to the book’s page on Musa’s website at http://musapublishing.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=9&products_id=373 and email me with one of the alternative names for the sidhe you’ll find there. Competition closes at midnight UK time next Wednesday evening, and I’ll draw a name at random. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org (or for when your webmail client eats it, jules dot jones at gmail dot com ).
Excellent. :-) The page for my short story And if I offered thee a bargain” has gone live on the Musa Publishing website. Not sure when it went live, as I’ve been too busy with edits to keep poking the site. At the moment it’s pre-orders only — it’s on sale from 9 September. I presume pre-ordering does actually work, because I can see on the internal royalties database that someone has done so.
I suppose this means I need to think of a competition to promote it. :^) Also, I need to dig out the colour printer and run off some bookmarks. Good thing it’s a bank holiday weekend.
This was the out-of-copyright short story, downloaded from Feedbooks, rather than the fix-up novel with the same title. It’s set in the Lensman universe (although it’s not part of the main sequence of stories), and has the classic pulp feel to it. If you don’t like that style, you’ll hate the story, but if you do, it’s a fun short read.
The new short story about the characters from Lord and Master is now available on my website. It’s set on Mark’s thirtieth birthday, about two years after their wedding, i.e. some time after both the original novel and the forthcoming sequel. This is a standalone and you don’t need to have read the novel first, though obviously you’ll get more out of it if you already know the characters. For those who wanted to see something from Steven’s POV, here’s your chance. Around 7100 words, contemporary m/m romance, one sex scene.
