Walk the Walk: Free “Learning How to Lose” Short Story

Ryuu Shiwasuda still isn’t a fan of losing, so it’s a good thing he doesn’t have to… much. His lover Hiro does tend to be better at the games they play – even when the game in question happens to be an unexpected bout of roleplaying of the “hooker and john” variety.

But then, there really aren’t any losers in a game like that, right? At least that’s Ryuu’s position, and he’s sticking to it.

~~~ “Walk the Walk” is a slice of life story set after the “Learning How to Lose, in Six Easy Steps” trilogy, and features a large percentage of hot sex. It also includes unexpected sweetness, spontaneous roleplaying, Ryuu being awkwardly sincere in strange moments, Hiro being surprisingly good at being a fake hooker, and more. (Also, Yo is a troll. But then, we already knew that.) ~~~

PLEASE NOTE:

While it doesn’t contain any actual spoilers, “Walk the Walk” is written as an epilogue rather than a stand-alone story, and builds on the characters and their relationship and history as established in the earlier books. Thus, it may not be as satisfying to read without knowledge of these works.

The story is also available on Smashwords and All Romance.

ETA: Amazon has declined to lower the price to 0.00 via price-matching, so the story will not be available there for the foreseeable future.

Alternately, if you can’t get “Walk the Walk” through the above links, just drop me a line – I’m also happy to send it per email!

Nix and hunter go live

still waters 200

A reformed nix. A deadly hunter. And an uneasy truce that may destroy them both.

“Still Waters” is now up on All Romance and Smashwords, for free. I’m so excited that this story is finally available for everyone, and I can’t wait to hear what people will think.

Check it out if you’re interested in dark myth-inspired worlds, water shifters, ginger mermen, and/or two natural enemies (and alpha males) trying to work together to take down a common threat… only to discover a dangerous attraction along the way.

island japan smallThe story is also available on Amazon, but since it’s not possible to set the price at 0.00 there, it isn’t free yet. It will be, though. In a few days (hopefully), Amazon will price-match the story down to nothing, and then it will be free everywhere.

I’ll keep you posted!

Going live!

All of my titles are now available on Amazon! Well, to be exact, they’ve been available since just before the holidays… I merely neglected to announce it due to a complete lack of sleep, followed by a seasonal break for cookies, Scrabble and too much good food.

I am ridiculously happy and excited, as well as somewhat nervous.
