The Closing of Amber Quill Press

Well, I think it’s pretty much coming out on social networking that Amber Quill is closing its doors as of March 31, 2016. The official announcement comes on Monday, January 04, 2016. This was sad news for its many authors, but at least they made the decision wisely as it was becoming clearer their business model could not compete in today’s market and all authors will be getting their rights back.

I have been releasing stories with Amber Quill since 2008 when I won what was to be their last contest to award contracts with them. I entered the contest on a whim with the story, The Squire, and was frankly stunned when I was one of the winners.

I have since released many titles there and I am proud of my stories there, some of which did very well for me in their heyday. Car Wash, At Long Last, the Only series. Well, so many, really.

What will become of them? I am not yet sure but I am sure I will do something with some of them anyway.

To be honest I had made the decision that Making a Wish would be the last story I sent there due to declining sales there for the last couple of years. I did not agree with the way they handled releasing stories on Amazon and I honestly believed the way they handled it hurt my sales for those stories. I had agreed to write stories as part of an obligation though and Making a Wish was that last story.

It makes me sad nevertheless because they were always kind, professional and paid on time. Something I cannot say for Ellora’s Cave, one of my other former publishers.


So onward, I suppose.

A Release Date for Restaurant Wars

Restaurant Wars, coming from Evernight Publishing, has received a release date of January 15, 2016. This will be my first release in 2016 and for now my only release as I am not currently engaged in writing anything. I am sure that will change at some point in the future but with the holidays upon us I am not really working on anything.

Restaurant Wars is just fun, flirty short romance story with a little heat. Nothing too serious but I think a fun story to read. I hope you will agree and I will post a cover when I have one.

In the meantime, Merry Christmas and I wish you a Happy and peaceful 2016.

Making a Wish is Available for Purchase (Pre-Order)

Making a Wish is available for Pre-Order over at Amber Quill.  

Here is the official blurb

As a kid, Astronomy professor Marty Brooks kept in touch with a pen pal who lived on the other side of the country. Eventually that pen pal stopped responding to Marty’s letters, which always ended with “Making a Wish” for Marty’s love of space.
Now, as adults, Marty and his brother are big fans of a series of famous Sci-Fi movies. They head to a convention for the movie franchise where they hope to meet the hot actors. Marty is especially interested in meeting an actor he knows is openly gay, but instead he bumps into the star of the movies, Sebastian Lookinland, who is gorgeous and not at all the snob Marty anticipated. They instantly connect and it’s obvious the attraction is mutual.
Before long, Marty learns the world really is small when Sebastian reveals he is actually the pen pal from all those years ago. The men instantly begin an affair, although Marty knows it will end when the convention does. But Sebastian isn’t ready to say goodbye and suggests they stay connected through texts, emails, and weekend get-togethers.
Marty can hardly refuse the offer since his heart is already engaged. Will he make a wish for the relationship to last for more than a few weeks?

Making a Wish Cover

You'll see over there on the sidebar I got my cover today for Making a Wish. It will be released later this month (11/22/15) from Amber Quill

That's Marty Brooks on the cover, the hero of my story. He's a nerdy astronomy professor who has an affair with a super hot Hollywood star. It was a fun story to write and I hope you enjoy reading it.

Restaurant Wars

So I wrote a little short story I called, Restaurant Wars, and I submitted it to Evernight Publishing's Romance on the Go line and I have been offered a contract. I signed it today so I figure it's okay to announce it. Have no idea when it will release yet, but will update when I have that information.

Making a Wish finished and turned in

I finished and turned in, Making a Wish, for the Getting Connected Pax, for Amber Quill. This was the last Pax I signed up to be a part of, so my obligations there have ceased.

Here is a very rough blurb for the story:


As a kid Astronomy professor, Marty Brooks, kept in touch for years with a pen pal who lived on the other side of the country. Eventually that pen pal stopped responding to Marty’s letters, which always ended with “Making a Wish” for Marty’s love of space.
Years later, Marty and his brother, big fans of a series of famous Sci-Fi movies, head to a convention for their mutual interests, especially meeting the hot actors that play the roles. Marty is interested in meeting an actor he knows is openly gay, but instead he bumps into the star of the movies, Sebastian Lookinland, who is gorgeous and not at all the snob Marty thought he was. They instantly connect and it’s obvious the attraction is mutual.

Before long Marty learns the world really is small when Sebastian reveals he is actually the pen pal from all those years ago. Marty and Sebastian begin an affair, Marty knowing it will end when the convention does. But Sebastian isn’t ready to say goodbye and suggests they stay connected through texts, emails, and weekend get-togethers. Marty can hardly refuse. Before long his heart is engaged. Will he make a wish for it to last for more than a few weeks?
This is going to be my last story for Amber Quill for the foreseeable future as I intend to be focusing on material for other publishers. 

Right now I have November 22, 2015 as the release date for Making a Wish.
