(Half Moon Bay: Book Two)

Angel Daniels grew up hard, one step ahead of the law and always looking over his shoulder. A grifter’s son, he’d learned every con and trick in the book but ached for a normal life. Once out on his own, Angel returns to Half Moon Bay where he once found… and then lost… love.

Now, Angel’s life is a frantic mess of schedules and chaos. Between running his bakery and raising his troubled eleven-year-old half brother, Roman, Angel has a hectic but happy life. Then West Harris returns to Half Moon Bay and threatens to break Angel all over again by taking away the only home he and Rome ever had.

When they were young, Angel taught West how to love and laugh, but when Angel moved on, West locked his heart up and threw away the key. Older and hardened, West returns to Half Moon Bay and finds himself face-to-face with the man he’d lost. Now West is torn between killing Angel or holding him tight.

But rekindling their passionate relationship is jeopardized as someone wants one or both of them dead, and as the terrifying danger mounts, neither man knows if the menace will bring them together or forever tear them apart.

Greg Tremblay to narrate Hanging The Stars (Half Moon Bay #2)

greg_hangingthestarsI have a HUGE announcement to make.

I owe Greg Tremblay a MASSIVE thank you and so much love for agreeing to narrate Hanging The Stars after Spencer Goss wasn’t able to do it. I will always be thankful to Spencer for lending his voice to Deacon and Lang and I am SO looking forward to hearing Greg give us Angel and West.

As always, I am dedicated to delivering to you the best stories as told by the most talented of narrators and when Spencer wasn’t able to schedule Hanging The Stars in, Greg Tremblay stepped up to the plate for all of us.

This will allow Hanging The Stars’ audiobook to be kept on schedule and I have the deepest confidence that you’ll get a quality product told by a master storyteller.

Thank you all for trusting me to write the stories I want to tell and I know you’ll give Greg the love and support he’ll ever need to tell West’s story.

Because West is going down! *grins*

Have a Glorious Thanksgiving

happy-thanksgiving

I wanted to wish you all a great Thanksgiving because truly, you are one of my most treasured blessings. You have all made my dreams come true, you see. More than I can imagine.

I am forever grateful and humbled by the readers who have picked up my stories and joined me as I twist my characters around into knots and drive them through storms. It has been six years since I sent Dirty Kiss into Dreamspinner Press, hoping someone there would find it interesting enough to share with this community.

And you were there.

Thank you. I do not have words beyond thank you. I have many variations of them but truly, nothing can touch the affection and awe I have for all of you.

Saranghaeyo.

Ah… Home.

I am back home and trying to catch up on everything I’ve let slide a bit. And well some things that I’ve been working on since forever it seems.

1. Hanging the Stars Blog Posts
I’m doing a seven stop blog tour. A short one because I’m kind of to the wall with a deadline…more on that later. But it will be a Christmas thingie with Deacon, Lang, Zig, West and a few other people from the Half Moon Bay series. Maybe a cat will make an appearance. BUT there is unique content on each blog stop so please stop by each to read. There’s also gift certificates to give away. On each stop. Have to enter to win. So stop by and enter as well. Because gift certificates can also go to someone else’s holiday present or… you can save them up to get that gold-plated snorklewhacker you’ve always wanted.

2. Dim Sum Asylum
The project I’m hammering at. This one is oddly harder to work on because I’m having to disassemble what I’ve written and fill in the blanks I’m creating. It’s an odd exercise in brainwork. I don’t recommend writing this way. But then some people do. I’m more linear. Point A to Chalk Line.

3. There’s This Guy
I’ve talked a bit about this contemporary I’ve written. Contemporary has to be used loosely here. I’ve gotten this feedback…

  • This is the sweetest thing you’ve ever written.
  • It’s sweet for…you.
  • Really? A dead body? You just had to.

Take that as you will. The blurb is final and I’ll probably drop the information on this shortly. Mostly figuring out when and where I’m going on the next couple of weeks. It’s been insane.

4. I still haven’t seen Dr. Strange but I HAVE seen Fantastic Beasts. I am not a Potterhead but I know quite a few and support their fandom. I’m not so sure about my Benedict Cumberbatch name though.
