New Cover and Book of the Month!

I finally got around to creating that cover for the free story: Half-Baked Promises. It's the one I wrote for the Love is Always Write event for the Goodreads M/M Romance group. I don't have Photoshop or anything like that, so it was just plain old PowerPoint, but I think it turned out okay. Now I just have to figure out what standardized texts I'll need at the beginning...

I was very excited to learn that Absolutely Eric was chosen as the Book of the Month for that same M/M Romance Group on Goodreads! Thanks to everyone who voted. Someone's also nominated A Life Without You for next month, but I doubt I'll get this lucky twice in a row. I'm very happy with and honored by this month's BoM.

While I'm at it, Absolutely Eric can now be bought in paperback from Amazon, B&N and other places.

More news:

My buddy NJ Nielsen has released her first novel! It was released by MLR Press last Friday and it's called Rules Are Meant To Be Broken. It's a vampire story and like everything else Norma produces it's very fresh with a great voice. It's the first in a very long series called The Lines of Marsden. I was lucky to have read this while it was in the editing stages, but I hear it's changed quite a bit since (I've bought a copy and am about to read it!).

Another buddy of mine, the super cute Cole Riann, has opened his own review site: The Armchair Reader. It doubles as his own personal blog. Cole's a very cool guy. He likes reading, knitting and baking. And vikings. We have a lot in common! Though...the most I've managed to knit are hats and mittens. I never got the hang of socks. I do love baking though and vikings are totally my thing ^.^


  1. LOL now if only I could find some old viking knitting patterns!! I bet I could! I am so happy that I'm alive with the internet.... though people in 200 years will probably just be able to think up information and god I wish I could be that lazy!

    1. Haha, I'm not so sure they had many patterns back then. Things were pretty basic. At least here in Iceland. I bet the Norse and the Danes had more eye for clothing.

      You mean you don't have a 3G brain implant yet?? God, how DO you get by? ^.^

  2. Erica, huge congrats on the release..The cover looks fantastic..Congrats on Book of the month...So happy for all the good stuff going on.

  3. Thanks so much, Sav :) This series sort of revolves around food, so I decided to add pictures of it.
