The Sweet Spot for readers & writers of m/m romances

Hello everyone! Hope you are all having a fab week. I have some fun news to share. Authors S.J. Frost, Johnny Miles, and I have launched a Yahoo group called The Sweet Spot for readers and writers of m/m romances. The group is open to join now and our official launch party will be April 16th when we will host a chat and give away books from the three of us.

We hope the group’s discussions will be casual and fun. I’d love for you to join us. Here’s the text from the group’s homepage with more details:

What is The Sweet Spot?
A Romance club for fans of the M/M genre. Brought to you by authors S.J. Frost, Johnny Miles and Sloan Parker. We’d love for The Sweet Spot to be a place where readers can hang out, chat with other readers of the genre, share recommendations, discuss their favorite books, or ask us any questions. We look forward to chatting with each of you.

Readers: We’d love for you to join us. Sign up and introduce yourself to the group. Let us know what it is you enjoy about M/M romance stories.

Authors: Feel free to share your new releases, special contests, or other news. We just ask that you not overdo it with too many promotional type messages. About once a month or so we’ll have special days set aside exclusively for that purpose so please save your excerpts for those days. More information to come on that in May.

Our “official” launch date for The Sweet Spot is April 16, 2011 when we will host a live chat, book giveaways from SJ, Johnny and Sloan, answer reader questions, and more. The live chat will be held from 6-9 pm EST on April 16, but you are welcome to come by any time during the day (starting at 8 am EST) to chat with other readers and to enter the giveaway to win free books. A giveaway thread will be re-posted throughout the day. Just respond at any time and you’ll be entered. Winners will be announced ASAP after the live chat. We hope you can join us!

Your friends at the Sweet Spot,
SJ, Johnny and Sloan

New Free Short Story (The Break In) & Newsletter Info

Hey guys, hope you are all doing well. I’m back to blogging this week and am excited to share some news:

  • I have a new short story available on my website: The Break In. Billy’s been breaking into his ex-lover’s apartment every Friday night for a little solo sex in the bed they used to share. One night he almost gets caught before he has a chance to finish his usual routine and climb back out the window. Now he has only seconds to decide if he should hide and end up watching his ex have sex or run from the most erotic encounter of his life–and maybe a chance at love again.
  • I mentioned the short, as well as a few other updates, in my newly reformatted newsletter. If you aren’t on the mailing list you can view the newsletter online. If you’re interested in signing up to receive my latest news in your inbox, you can do so via this form. The newsletter will be published every other month or so and will include writing updates, release information, free fiction, and more.
  • Also coming soon is a serial story that I will share via my newsletter and on the blog. The first story will continue with my short More Than Just a Good Book. A new scene will be added with each newsletter publication, and after the last scene is shared, I’ll make the entire thing available as an ebook.  I will be writing the story one scene at a time, although I do already have an outline for the rest of Mark and Scott’s story.

If you check out The Break In, I hope you enjoy it. It was a fun one to write.
