I had a wonderful time this evening at the Facebook Release Party hosted by JJ King. There was great participation, and I made some new friends. Thanks, JJ, for including me.
I’ll be selecting the winners of my giveaways tomorrow evening. Stay tuned.
I’ll be hosting a 30 minute slot between 6:30 PM – 7:00 PM this evening at a Release Party on Facebook today, hosted by my fellow author, JJ King. Come join us between 5:00 PM & 9:00 PM EST for discussions with the authors, games, and prizes!
[Whispers, “I’ll be giving away free copies of From Lightning to Love (available March 24, 2017 – my release date) during my time slot.]
I look forward to seeing you there!
When he looked over at Aaron, it was obvious that he’d been disturbed by the shout from the unsettled look on his face, but it hadn’t been enough to wake him. He also noticed that the sheet and blanket were off him again, and he had another raging erection. He was so focused on Aaron’s penis, he didn’t realize that Aaron had woken up. Instinctively, Jason began to reach for it, but withdrew his hand almost immediately.
“You can touch it,” Aaron whispered.
Jason nearly jumped off the bed.
“No really, Jason, you can touch it. Please, you have my permission,” he said more clearly.
“Oh God, what’s happening?” Jason whispered.
“I watched you sleep last night, Jason. You’re a beautiful man. I’d be lucky to find someone like you.”
“Aaron, I’m sorry.” Jason sat up and swung his legs over the side of the bed, turning away.
“Jason, listen to me.”
Jason stood up and walked towards the window. He wanted to run away.
“Jason, look at me.”
Jason turned to face him, unaware that his own erection was straining against his jeans. He focused his gaze above Aaron’s head. Aaron focused on the bulge in Jason’s jeans.
“Can I be honest with you, Jason?”
Jason didn’t answer.
“Jason, I can’t believe I’m saying this, but here goes. We have to be realistic about this. You’re a man. I’m a man. You’re gay. I’m gay. And for God knows how long, we’re gonna be confined to this cabin. It could be months.”
“Everything you’ve said is the truth,” Jason answered quietly, lowering his eyes to meet Aaron’s gaze.
“Jason, I can’t pretend to know what’s going on in your head, so I can only speak for myself, and please believe me when I say this. I have needs, Jason, physical needs. I always have, and I now find that I’m very attracted to you. I don’t think it’s just because of what you’ve done for me or that I think I owe you something. Well, to be honest, that may be part of it, sort of like hero worship or something, but it’s only a small part, and besides, if I’d have met you on the street before I met Nathan, I would’ve jumped your bones in a minute.”
Aaron tensed his mouth and closed his eyes momentarily. Jason noticed the look on Aaron’s face at the mention of Nathan’s name. When Aaron opened his eyes again, he looked directly into Jason’s eyes.
“Jason, I don’t think you know just how darn handsome you are. You have a powerful masculine musk, and I’m drawn to it. The first time I got a hard-on when you were washing me, it was purely physical. I couldn’t help it, but over the past few days, I’m finding myself wanting you more and more. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I want you to make love to me. I’m a very good lover, Jason, though obviously,” Aaron waved his arm over his broken body, “I can’t back that up right now.”
Jason looked blankly at Aaron. He didn’t speak.
“Well, say something, Jason. What are you feeling?”
Jason forced the words out. “Aaron, it would be wrong.”
“How can that be when I’m throwing myself at you right now!”
I am happy and excited to announce that I signed a publishing contract yesterday for my first novel, From Lightning to Love, with Evernight Publishing.
I am a new M/M novelist who writes about real men in real relationships. Into my thirties, I realized I was attracted to men, but I have also loved women. I have a naturally strong sense of empathy for all living things, and I have been an astute observer of interpersonal human relationship dynamics, the relationships between humans and animals, and the ensuing bonds that have developed between them.
I have extensive experience in trauma and emergency care and have worked as a medic for over twenty years while supporting my country, its citizens, and the military men and women in the armed forces in various capacities. Over the course of my career, I have seen more than my share of pain and suffering, not only from injuries and illness, but also from ignorance, discrimination, and prejudice. Now retired from the field, my fictional writing draws on my life experiences to share the stories, personalities, strengths, and weaknesses of the many, many people and animals I have known and met along the way.
I hopes I do them justice.
