Blog Anniversary Giveaway: Celebrating 10 Years

I started this blog in August of 2008, almost two years before my first book was published. Granted I didn’t post much in the beginning, but creating the blog, and then my website, were big steps in my writing career. So today I’d like to celebrate the blog’s 10th anniversary with another monthly giveaway.

One random winner will be selected to receive the following prize pack:

  • A Signed Paperback Copy from my Backlist
  • A Sloan Parker Pen
  • Your Choice of One Other M/M Romance in Paperback (by any author)

The prize pack can be shipped worldwide. The winner will be contacted privately to select their books. The second book must be: an M/M romance, available for purchase on, and priced at $20 USD or lower before tax.



  • The giveaway runs until the end of the day tomorrow. All entries must be received by 11:59 PM Eastern Time on August 31, 2018One random winner will be selected and then contacted directly about their prize. Chance of winning depends on the total number of entries. No purchase necessary. Prize can be shipped worldwide.

Quote I Love: Acceptance

“My happiness grows in direct proportion to my acceptance, and in inverse proportion to my expectations.” ― Michael J. Fox

This is such an important statement but also so very hard to achieve. It’s one of the things I’m striving for in my own life, but it is a daily struggle. From little innocuous things that pop up during the day to the bigger events and relationships that impact nearly my entire life, I’m trying to learn to accept the things I cannot change and focus on loving my life, my mind, my body, my passions, and most importantly, the people who surround me.

Thank you to all my readers for giving me the opportunity to continue sharing one of my passions. It means the world to me.
