Lots of news

Current Music: Love is a Battlefield-Pat Benetar
First off Auburnimp and I have sold a series to Mojocastle Press LLC called Sakura Blades. It's set in the early Tokugawa era of Japan (1603ish) and follows the adventures and misadventures of a pair of young swordsmen, Naito Kiyohsi, once a well off young samurai who's now on the run, and Masami a young ronin.

They're on the run from the Shogun's men, Kiyoshi because he killed the son of an important man and Masami for befriending Kiyoshi and defending him from those same men. But Masami has secrets. Ones that make him a wanted man.

Sparks fly and swords flash as the pair clash, not only with the Shogun's men, but with each other.

In other news we're waiting--yet again--for the cover art for one of my books to come in, so Through Neon Eyes: Breakthrough can't be released until we get the art.

I'm working on the next pair of Through Neon Eyes stories, Power 1 and 2. Power 1 is done in rough draft, Power 2 should be done by the end of next week if not sooner.

I guess that's all for now.

Awards and Reviews

Current Music: Sinner ~ Drowning Pool
First off, yes, Apocalypse Dance WON! I have revieved the award for Best Book of 2006 from Rites of Romance Reviews. Totally cool, but that's not the only news I've got.

Mercykill: Shattered Melody, my Jrock m/m erotic suspense/mystery paranormal novel is up for a Reader's Choice Golden Rose Award as is my short story, Midwinter's Night.

Mercykill: Shattered Melody is also up for the coolest award of all time! An actual Gaylactic Spectrum Award. This is the biggie folks, voted on by a committee of Scifi, fantasy and Horror gay fandom. People published by those big New York City publishers like DAW, ROC, Tor and others get nominated for this--and usually win it. Just being approved for the nomination by the committee is a big deal for a small press author like me so I'm really excited about that!

Do I expect to win? No, but just being nominated is cool by me.

And I just got two four heart reviews from Valerie at Love Romances Cafe, one for Vamptations with Midnight Showcase and the other for the first two books in my Through Neon Eyes series over at Mojocastle.

And I'm about 12000 words away from finishing Through Neon Eyes: Breakthrough, so this is a good month!

Teresa at Fallen Angel Reviews has given my m/m (yaoi) novel
Mercykill: Shattered Melody a Five Angel and Recommended Read review.

Michael Barnette wove a very beautiful story that held me spell bound
from the first page. The descriptions of the members was so vivid that
they leapt from the pages and came alive for me. Add onto that a
mystery and a ghost that is bent on helping them solve the murder and
you have a compelling story that has something for everyone to enjoy.
I will be waiting to the sequel Mercykill: Killers.

Genre: Nontraditional Erotic Contemporary; Yaoi
Length: Novel

Lucas Sloane defines beautiful for Reese. Tall and sleek with gorgeous red hair and deep, dark eyes to drown in, it's no wonder that the famous bass player is the hero of many a starry-eyed teenager's dreams.

Reese used to be one of those teens. Back when Heaven Sent was no more than the house band for the local club, Purgatory. Back then, it was easy to get to know Luc. To become friends with him. Somehow, Reese found the courage to take heart in hand and confess his love to Luc… only to be soundly rejected. Luc wasn’t gay. Not long after, Heaven Sent left town and skyrocketed into rock and roll stardom.

Now, six years later, Luc is back in town for a visit and more gorgeous than ever. Surprisingly, he not only apologizes for his treatment of Reese years ago, he comes onto him. Seems Luc's discovered the pleasures of being with a man and wants to know what it'd be like between the two of them.

But Reese can't. He just can’t. He lives the straight and narrow. He teaches high school. He's got a girlfriend. He has a normal life. He can't be gay.

Of course, it's really very hard to deny the man who's defined everything beautiful in Reese's artistic mind. Okay. No one has to know about it, right?

In feudal Japan, war and famine tear through the countryside, and demons lurk in the darkness. Two young men struggle together on the outskirts of a ravaged village: the strong yet kind Liu Sakurai and his beloved gentle hearted Kiyoshi. And as their friendship endures the endless hardships, their bond grows into something more.

When the summer night brings a mysterious stranger to their door, the most dangerous desires of their dreams and nightmares are awakened. Blood now binds Kiyoshi and Sakurai together where once love did, but can this tie last an eternity?
