No April Fools’… All IN-STOCK Dreamspinner Paperbacks 50% Off

Paperback_sale_DSPsiteThis is NOT an April Fool’s Joke. Dreamspinner Press is REALLY having a 50% off Sale on all IN-STOCK paperbooks. Time to raid the couch for pennies!

Down and Dirty is now $7.50. I think there are some Dirty Kiss and Sinner’s Gin there too.

I’ll have to check to see if you get the ebook as well when you purchase the paperback. For some reason that sticks in my head but I could be wrong. I need clarification there… LIKE BUTTAH!



Make Me A Morgan Winner!

The winner is CASSIE!

Cassie’s name was selected from among the hundreds of people who donated, mentioned and passed the link along. I had to create a spreadsheet. Math is hard. Just saying. Cassie will become a Morgan in the next Sinners book after Sloe Ride (Yes there will be a one-off).

Cassie, your name was pulled from the GOFUNDME page. Your entry was:

So sorry to hear about your family’s struggles. My prayers and best wishes for strength of body, heart, and purpose, and of course health and well-being. I heard about your fundraiser on Rhys Ford’s blog, and I hope my small drop in your bucket is part of a much larger tidal wave of good will and support. God bless.

Please know every drop in the bucket goes to support a lovely man and you are a doll for being there with us. His road is a bit smoother because of you. And every one of you.

Cassie, please email me at rhysford [at] vitaenoir [dot] com and let’s talk about how you’re going to be in the next Sinners book!

Congrats to Cassie but most of all, thank all of you. Truly. Warms the cockles. *HUGS*

Dirty Huhs

I get twitchy about my desktop. For better or for worse, I like to have shortcuts to series I’m working on lined up on the left side along with a master file.

A few seconds ago, I was kind of… damn I wish I had room to put a shortcut marked One Offs under here but there are too many folders.

That’s when I realized in about six months or so, I’ll begin the end of Cole and Jae’s story arc…

And that shortcut will leave my desktop.

A shortcut that’s been there for years…through a few laptops and thousands of cups of coffee.


It’s a very weird feeling.



I’m rounding out the end of Sloe Ride and I know I’ve not spent a lot of time here. On Facebook I’ve posted links and photos of stuff. And really should post more here. So, pull up a chair and maybe let’s spend a few minutes.

Got a photo from a reader named James Thomas. It’s a picture of my books in his college’s library. I got all awwwwwww… mostly because it is a library! Not even so much as MY books but a LIBRARY!

james_thomasI have such a special place in my heart for libraries. Back when I was a zoglet, monies were scarce. They didn’t have to be but that’s a story for another confessional…and not really my story to tell but combined with the lack of money was a…dismissal of reading as anything important.

Actually it was less of a dismissal and more of an aggressive dislike and reading was discouraged.

So… I found solace in libraries. And also garage sales. To this day, I love swap meets, garage sales and street markets because for a few quarters, I could stock up my brain for a couple of weeks. Libraries meant being responsible and having to find a way back, not an easy thing to do when one is under 10. And school libraries didn’t really let you borrow five books at a time—go figure. But public libraries were great and back then, they forgave a lot of fines, especially when you’re a grubby child obviously hungry for anything with words in it.

I read everything. Hell, I spent an entire day in the back of a truck reading a tutorial cookbook about making sausage… I still to this day wonder how a plum and duck meat sausage tastes. I’ve had the apple and chicken.

So libraries… so much like a temple where one can find pieces of peace and enlightenment.

There you go. Libraries.

Sloe Ride… ah, the monkey on my back… this is a different read. Aren’t they all? The romance between Rafe and Quinn isn’t a fiery one. No, it’s a slow-burning joining. I’ve not written that before so the challenge is laying down a good solid foundation of their friendship first and then slowly layer on love.

So that’s where I am today. The cat is a cat. Tam the Diabetic went in for a check up and yep, all the tests came back positive…he’s a cat.

Oh and I was going to tell you something and now just TOTALLY forgot. Really. It was semi-important or cool. OH! Yes.

NOH8 shoot tomorrow. WOOOOT! I take horrible pictures but hey, I shall do my best!

SOMEONE will become a Morgan!

Well all, we have reached the Build John A Ramp goal.

I am never amazed at how the community of us works. People say that, you know. Isn’t it amazing? Well, no…it’s not. Because really you all are amaxing people. What else would amazing people do but amazing shit?

Because awesome is as awesome does.

Thank you. I know Christy and John thank you. I haven’t spoken to her yet today. I will in a little bit. We’ll keep everyone informed on how John’s doing and the funding page will still be up for 80 days.

The goal was 10K. The ramp is built and now comes the time when I start sorting through the five places for comments and such to compile the entrants.

ONE of you will be a Morgan in Sin and Tonic.

All of you are in my hearts.
