Grady and Mateo’s Song

Coming Soon I Swear To You

I’ve heard back from my publisher on I SWEAR TO YOU, and they love the final story!

So today I thought I’d share Grady and Mateo’s song. These lyrics are just about perfect for them.

I’ve officially turned in my latest story, I SWEAR TO YOU, to my publisher. To celebrate I thought I’d share another teaser.

This is an unedited excerpt so please excuse any typos. I also can’t guarantee this will make it in the final version of the story.

The door rattled behind them with their movements. There was nothing slow or easy about the kiss, about the way they rocked against one another.

A primal need had erupted inside Grady, leaving him unable—and unwilling—to stop the desire blazing through him.

“Teo,” he said around a moan as Mateo kissed his way down his neck. “What are we doing?”

“Christ, Grady. I don’t know, but I don’t want it to stop.”

Fucking hell, he didn’t want it to stop either.

He wanted more, everything he had pretended he wasn’t picturing during their last few jerk-off sessions.

Mateo pulled back. He stared at Grady’s lips again, licked his own. “Fuck.” He shook his head as if to clear his thoughts. Or maybe not. He propped a hand against the door beside Grady and leaned in once more.

Their mouths met again, and that was it. Grady gave himself over to the moment—over to Mateo.

No release date yet, but I’ll share more as soon as I have the details.

From My Writing Playlist: Everything

This song’s on my general writing playlist, but it’s also on my playlist for Sean and Gavin’s story, SOMETHING TO BELIEVE IN. I think this time of year will always get me thinking of their story and everyone out there in the world who is without a home. This holiday season, please think about offering up whatever you can to help those in need. If we all give a little–whether it’s time or money–we could make a huge impact.

Kevin’s Song for HOW TO SAVE A LIFE

Maybe because HOW TO SAVE A LIFE is going through the final stages of editing, I don’t know, but I can’t get this song out of my head. It’s definitely Kevin’s song.

You can view the rest of my playlist for this book on my website.

Playlist for HOW TO SAVE A LIFE

Here are a few of the songs I listened to while writing HOW TO SAVE A LIFE (which has an updated blurb). For each song, some of the lyrics and/or the tone really spoke to me when it came to Kevin and Walter. The blend of passion, emotion, and suspense with this story led to an interesting mix of songs for these guys.

Most of the YouTube videos for these wouldn’t play embedded in the page, so I’ve linked to each. I tried to use the original artist’s version where possible.
