This is a gorgeous video capturing the sights and sounds of the river not far from where I live. Even though I SWEAR TO YOU takes place on a lake, much of this video reminds me of where Mateo and Grady grew up and where they fell for each other.

BEHIND THE BOOK: THE PREMISE

Over at the Loose Id blog, I’m sharing about coming up with the basic premise for I SWEAR TO YOU.

GRADY AND MATEO’S SONG

I don’t have a full playlist for this story, but here is the best song I came across for Grady and Mateo. Some of these lyrics are just about perfect for them.

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 SWEAR TO YOU is off to my editor!

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

(c) Sloan Parker, 2013

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.

 

The Song: Everything by Lifehouse

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.
