Everybody says promotion is the hardest part of being an author. I have to admit it really is for me too. I'm basically a shy person. If I know you, and like you, I'm completely different. But until I know you 'get' me, I'm very guarded. I will happily respond to you, and I laugh easily. But when it comes to volunteering information about myself, I'm awful. Once I'm comfortable with you though, I'm probably too relaxed! lol
It seems that in this day and age authors can't just sit back and not interact with readers. I love connecting with readers, I'm just not great at reaching out to them. But to be honest, I've always been like that with friendship, love etc. I'm the worst person in the world when it comes to phone calls. Don't ever expect me to call you. I will need much hounding and nagging to make that happen. And it isn't because I don't care or don't like you. It's because I always assume people have no real need to hear from me.
But these days that fear of reaching out won't fly. So I push myself to host Facebook takeovers and try to do interviews. I send my newsletter out even when I feel like I'm bothering people and I generally try and act like a grownup. :)
I think I'm getting better at faking it. Pretty soon I don't think it will be so hard to reach out. And when I do, hopefully you'll take my hand.

Miles Sorenson prides himself on his brutal honesty. Facts and logic are a hell of a lot easier to deal with than emotions. He’s got his career and a small, close-knit group of friends, and he doesn’t need nor want anything else. The total opposite of Quinn Barker, who doesn’t take life too seriously and thinks a good laugh can cure anything.
When Quinn takes Miles home, it’s supposed to be a one-time deal. Except they really click in the sack and end up spending the weekend together, enjoying each other's bodies as much as their company…to Miles’s dismay. Matters get even more muddled when, months later, they run into each other at the popular West Hollywood bar, Wild Side, and pick up right where they left off.
On the surface, Quinn and Miles are like oil and water, but the draw between them is undeniable. As their lives further entwine, they realize there’s more to their connection than the way they singe the sheets together.
But demons from the past have a way of catching up, and no matter how strong the link is tying Miles and Quinn together, the pressure may be enough to make it snap.

Wolf shifter Falco Gladstone knew Carter McCloud was his mate when they were in seventh grade, but school and the foster care system tore them apart. Years later, Falco is second in command of his Michigan pack, serving under an uncle who cares more about his own power than the welfare of their people. The alpha orders Falco to marry and produce offspring—but Falco’s already found his mate, and mates are forever.
Carter’s lonely life is turned upside down when he detects a familiar scent on the wind. The mates might have found each other, but their happily ever after is far from guaranteed. Falco’s commitment to Carter puts him at odds with his uncle’s plans, and when one of the alpha’s enforcers starts shadowing the couple, something must be done—something that will either cement their relationship or destroy it once and for all.

Series or standalones?
Long novels or short stories?
What's the best review you ever got?
Music, TV or no noise?
HEA or HFN?
BA says: 1. Series. 2. my sweet spot is 55K. 3. This book reads like a Garth Brooks song EEEEEEE! 4. Music. Playlists are my life. 5. HEA all the way. I don't write HFN.
Kiernan says: Standalone, usually, but there are series I adore. Jean Auel's Earth's Children series is one of them. Short stories are my secret vice. Okay, maybe not so secret. I like to read short and write short. One for Changing Jamie from a woman who ran an AIDS organization in Africa, who thanked me for writing the book. Silence! I can't hear the voices in my head unless it's quiet. Either way. Sometimes an hfn just works better. Sometimes the story calls for it.
Sean says: 1. Both? I love doing series, but some characters just want their story and to be done. 2. If you’d asked me 10 years ago I would have said short stories. Now if it’s not a novel, I’d better start with guys who are already together and they need to be watched very carefully. 3. It wasn’t an official review, but I got an email letting me know that my books got the reader through the roughest year of their life. That meant the world to me. 4. I can do all three depending on my mood. 5. My happy place is HEA.
Julia says: Series are so much damn fun! Short stories, though 20-30K novellas are my lifeblood. I had a lady tell me she didn't approve of gay marriage until she read a short I put out, and then she clicked.
Music or TV. I need stimuli.
HEA though more than once I have been accused of HFN and gone, huh?

I have a new re-release that just came out. It was my very first MM romance that was published. Loose
It's about two men who work at a financial firm where someone is stealing money.
