Launching Twin Flames Blog Tour

In The Beginning, There Was Frustration!

I started writing Twin Flames Because I was angry. I loved shifters and werewolves and had a running streak where I read some infuriating "mates" in both Het and M/M romance books. One of the mates would do or say something(s) asinine but because the "mate bond" the situation would get swept under the rug or have some lame apology and then they'd jump into the sack and have make-up sex. Now don't get me wrong, I love reading make-up sex but when I don't believe the resolution then it does nothing for me.

Internal conflict and personalities that occasionally bump can be enjoyable to read. But if certain issues or behavior were to happen to me in real life, my immediate response would be, "Hit the road Jack." I also enjoy reading about "mates" and "bonding" and I do love a good growly, "Mine!" even though I use them sparingly when I write because I feel if they occur too many times then I'm beating the reader over the head with repetitive behavior, and really, it can quickly become old when overdone.

So I was sitting there fuming because the asshat mate swept bad behavior under the rug and the two reconciled when I would've been tickled if they had broken up. I whipped out a piece of paper and started scribbling. After I wrote the first chapter of what I'd begun calling "Clean Break" I felt cleansed, as if I had exercised all the demons of reader frustration. Reading it over, an idea formed and I emailed the chapter to a friend.

"What do you think?"

"OMG, you have to finish it!"

In all honesty, I had packed up my pen and paper when I was twenty because I couldn't see a way where I could make a living writing. I have two file drawers packed full of stories I wrote before I stopped creative writing. Two years ago, almost 18 years later I desperately wanted to give it a try. I completed Clean Break with it coming in at about 96k and I submitted it to a publisher fully expecting to being rejected, but hoping for some critique because I knew it was a god-awful mess.

The craziest thing happened. The manuscript was accepted under the condition that I break the story into two parts. Clean Break gave birth to Twin Flames and Songs of the Earth.

As you can imagine the first time through editing was grueling. The manuscript was a complete mess but I swallowed my pride, shed some tears, made fun of myself, and learned a ton. Now Twin Flames will be re-released on October 1st. Re-editing the manuscript I could clearly see how much my writing had improved over the last two years. I was pleased as well as a little distressed. ^_^ Happy to have a chance to clean up Twin Flames, I polished it as well as correcting some continuity problems. Tristan was a total queen and my editor helped me to tone him down a bit so that he didn't come off as a teenager. *cackles* I was feeling pretty frustrated when I wrote that first chapter.

The blog tour posts will flow into each other, like a continuing conversation. Since this a re-release I was trying to keep from giving away spoilers to those who haven't read the series yet, which was harder than I thought it would be.

Another great thing that came out of re-editing Twin Flames was the final word count met Less Than Three's minimum for printing. I will be giving a couple away for the blog tour along with a really nice canvas tote bag, coffee cup, and some other pieces of swag. I've attached the list of blog tour stops.

Alpha Trine Receives An Honorable Mention

Received the best news today. Alpha Trine made the honorable mention list for the 2014 Rainbow Awards *goofy grin*

What does this mean? A judge rated Alpha Trine a 36 or above out of 40 but it doesn't necessarily mean I'm a finalist. The announcement for the finalists won't go up until after October 1st sometime.

Seriously, I'm all good right now with the warm melty feeling of simply receiving the mention. The judge's comment was awesome as well.

"Honestly this is one of the best books I've read this year. It is a rich, full world with rich, full characters. I couldn't have asked for a better sci-fi book. Sci-fi is one of the hardest (in my opinion) genres to write in, and it's rare (for me) that a story captures my interest so thoroughly."

A huge thank you for Elisa and all the judges for the 2014 Rainbow Awards. There were over 500 submissions. What a enormous undertaking.

I've provided the link to the announcement. I encourage to you check out the other Honorable Mentions. There are so many great books listed.  http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/4440695.html

Monday's Bundle Winners

Woot!! Congratulations to


They won the drawing for the ebook bundle for Curling & Pumping Iron from Nya Rawlyns!!

Monday, September 15, 2014

Guest Blogger: Nya Rawlyns with a Pumping Iron Character Interview

Today have I have two special guests. I'm tickled to introduce Sean Rourke and Mike Douglas. They are debuting in Pumping Iron and have graciously stopped by for an interview. 

Two random people will win an ebook bundle (Curling Iron & Pumping Iron in epub or mobi format). To enter, all you need to do is leave a comment and include your email address on today, September 15th. Two people will win the giveaway at each blog stop Nya makes on her book tour. If you miss commenting before the 15th is over, check out the tour list for the next stop. It can be found at the bottom of this post. Good luck!!

Gentlemen, I'm so glad to have you here. The bar is open, what would you like to drink?

Sean? *looks over at Mike and smirks* Sam Adams. Oktoberfest if you have it, otherwise anything other than “lite.” *makes the finger quotes and ducks as Mike takes a mock swing at him*

Mike? *nods agreement* Seems I finally won Sean over to my more sophisticated tastes. Him and his scotches and brandies and drinks with umbrellas. *shakes head* Make that two of whatever you’ve got on tap. *Sean and Mike tap frosted mugs and toast each other, their eyes revealing a friendly challenge*

Gentleman, I promise not to grill you too hard—mostly. *smirks* Let me know if you would like another drink.

Mike: Just keep these filled and we’ll be just fine.

My first question is for Sean. Tell us a little about yourself. How long have you been working for Bad Boyfriends? How does one become an A-list escort?

I’ve been with the agency for about eight months. I was a regular on Night’s Edge—that’s a network soap. But they wrote me out of the script. After that I couldn’t buy my way into a role so I did what I had to do to survive. *Sean stares at the floor, considering how much to reveal* I got myself into a bit of financial trouble. Bad Boyfriends made me an offer. *he blushes* Seems I had a lot of influential fans following my gay character on the show. They seemed to like the idea of me being arm candy for the evening, even if I was a has-been. You’d think industry professionals wouldn’t have a tough time linking up, but the hours and the crazy life… Well, as it turned out, I knew a lot of them, as a co-worker or friend. There were no awkward entanglements, and it brought extra business to the agency. I call that a win-win.

Mike, if it's not giving too much away, what are your special negotiating skills? How have they helped with running a training center for athletes?

Kane … he runs Bad Boyfriends … and I grew up together in a small town. We were best friends from the age of six. He was the brain, I was the brawn. That made us a good team, but when we graduated high school Kane got a scholarship to Columbia. I got a diploma and a handshake. *he grins* I had nothing else going on so I enrolled in the community college and got an associate degree in corrections and law enforcement. After a few turns handing out speeding tickets and enforcing curfews, I eventually I ended up here in New York City. Joined a fitness club, got into weight lifting. Did a few competitions. *he shrugs* Guess I did okay. Made a few friends along the way. When the fitness center came on the market, Kane was looking to expand, and I had a handful of clients ready to follow me to the new location. The rest, as they say is history. *he looks over at Sean, his expression giving nothing away* As for negotiating? Let’s just say I can be very persuasive when I need to.

Sean, what is one thing about you that people wouldn't know by looking at you?

*Sean fidgets, purposely does not look in Mike’s direction.* Uh, well… I like to lose? *Mike explodes with laughter* Sorry. Private joke.

Mike, what is the most difficult part of your work? Are there any highlights that make the bad days worth the effort?

*Mike gets a smug look on his face, glances sideways at Sean* I like making my clients sweat, pushing them to the next level. You know, going for the gusto. Even when they’re whining like little girls. *Sean snorts. Mike grins* It makes my day when the client realizes the only person he has to best is himself. That’s like an epiphany. *he looks directly at Sean* Sometimes that works both ways.

Sean, how would you describe Mike? Are you friends or simply co-workers? What are his good and not so good qualities?

We were just co-workers at first. The agency and the fitness center are run by the same people. Kane sends all his escorts to Mike for fitness and nutrition training. That’s how we met. Mike always struck me as being like a marine drill sergeant, not that I know any, you understand. But he has that way about him … like he chews nails as snacks. When he’s training you, he’s all business. And he doesn’t take no for an answer. I hated him for a long time because of it. That was before I discovered he’s… Um, nevermind. *Mike preens*

Mike, I hear that you and Sean are going to work on a special joint project. Are you looking forward to working closely with Sean? Do you foresee any hiccups on this project? I heard the attorney was a bit wily.

We’re babysitting a long-time client of Kane’s, at the request of the man’s law firm. Seems the attorney’s got a history of misbehaviors that the firm thinks might hurt the political ambitions of one of the senior partners. Sean and I have been tasked with keeping him out of the way while the firm looks into mitigating the damage. *Mike purses his lips, clearly not thrilled with the upcoming job* Sean’s been delegated the client’s entertainment director for the duration, given their past association. *the frown deepens* It seems simple enough. Keep the guy isolated, away from … um, distractions. I’m mostly there to provide backup. *he glances at Sean, his eyes going smoky dark* Mostly.

*fans self* Uhm… *clears throat* I think I need to have the air-conditioning checked. Gentlemen, thank you so very much for stopping by. I loved our talk and had such a great time getting to know you. I hope you won't be strangers.

*Mike and Sean chug the last of their beers and stand. They shake hands and turn to leave*

Mike mutters, “Wanna make it interesting?”

Sean raises an eyebrow. “Interesting how…?”

Mike smirks and says, “First one back gets to…”

*They exit together, then Sean takes off like a shot*

Well... I don't know about you, but my mind keeps going "there". Did you see all the smoldering looks passed back and forth between those two? Just between you and me, Mike didn't seem to like this joint project with the lawyer. I'm thinking that some sparks are going to flying there... but you didn't hear that from me. ^_^

I hadn't hear of the Bad Boyfriends series until here recently. Nya was kind enough to share with us a little but about the first book in the series, Curling Iron.

Curling Iron (Bad Boyfriends #1)


Kane leads a double life. By day, he pumps iron, running a fitness center, where jocks and Cougar flock for the burn and the ‘tude. By night, it's something else entirely that gets pumped, as Kane swaps sweats for Armani to cater to an exclusive clientele, willing to pay well to indulge their special interests and tastes. His double life isn’t a problem until his conniving ex tightens the financial screws.

Finding and retaining suitable companions for his after-dark clients isn’t easy. David Black’s pole dancing performance at a friend's club hints that he might hit all the bullet points on Kane’s list of requirements, in a way that could mean something other than “just business.”

David is out of work and out of options, so when he’s offered the choice of starvation or performing both on and off the stage, it’s a no-brainer. Kane’s offer of a position with the escort service is as attractive as the man himself, and David agrees to a trial period involving certain conditions. He quickly finds that he’s out of his depth.

Confronted with unanticipated roadblocks, one thing is clear… neither man is taking no for an answer.


I stifled the urge to sneeze. Mold. I was allergic to mold.

Apparently so was the tall man staring at one of the boss’s art deco posters—Captain America, but modern, not an antique. He sneezed and reached into a coat pocket, pulled out a handkerchief and swiped at his face. From the back he looked familiar. Dark hair, broad shoulders, overcoat from a custom big and tall men’s store. He looked angry or pissed or just not happy to be there—body posture was one of my specialties. I don’t need to see the face to know which way the wind blows.

My heart sank. If he was a detective, that “only the one” was probably me ending up at the precinct for lewd and lascivious behavior. I’d taken Charlie’s advice. I’d courted the pole last night, in a prime and prissy way. Tonight, I’d gone full frontal assault, with more grind than bump, and got a hard-on from my efforts that bulged the pleather pouch to the breaking point.

My sixty-three dollars was now looking like bail money.

Clearing my throat, I plastered polite on my face, and asked, “You wanted to see me?” He wasn’t a customer. No point in pretending otherwise.

He turned.

I swallowed. My tongue thickened. Spit pooled in my mouth, threatening to drizzle down my chin.
He nodded. I nodded. I went to sit in the folding chair in front of the desk.


I didn’t.

The soft cashmere turtleneck was a dead giveaway. This was my too smexy for his shoes guy from the audience, the one sitting next to the stage, the one I’d copped a feel with my eyes at the end of the routine… That one. There. Giving me a once, twice, thrice-over.

The pouch bulged.

A grin played at the corners of his mouth. I hoped he had handcuffs. I really hoped he liked doing bad cop.

He held out a hand, said, “I’m Kane.”

We shook. I shook, mostly inside, but it was a close call. I had the presence of mind to ask, “May I see some identification?”

He looked surprised, but fished in an interior pocket and pulled out a small, flat metal holder. He withdrew a business card and handed it over.

I stared, not exactly processing much…


While I mouthed Bad Boyfriends, he said, “I have a proposal for you, Mr.—”

“Black. David Black.” It was tempting to extend my hand again for another shake, a formal one. One where I could maybe fondle the backs of those long, elegant fingers, do a few sweeps with my thumb, my tongue, my tongue tied in knots, brain in lockdown.

“You’re not a cop?”

I looked at him, really looked at eyebrows drawn together tight, stern, over eyes that were blue, but not. More like Smoky Mountains hazy blue, flat, intense. He was scary handsome, scary imposing, a total alpha, I eat interns for breakfast, sexual metro hunka way out of my league.

He chuckled. That made it worse.

September Scramble

Sort of behind on my blog posts. :-/ I've been pushing to get projects finished and quite frankly it's been exhausting.

Keeping Faith was submitted last week and I'm waiting to hear back from the publisher.

I reviewed the Twin Flames galley, made a couple of adjustments and returned it this week. I got to see the full cover on it and I'm dying to get this in print. The ebook is up on pre-order at the publisher Less Than Three Press, and as of yesterday, All Romance. Remember that if you order directly from the publisher before October 1st you'll get a 15% discount.

The last immediate editing that I'm working on is for Songs of the Earth. I want to have that done by... well... hopefully tonight.

I have to admit that I have the writing blues. With the exception of blog posts I haven't written a new word toward a story in five weeks. I dream of new stories that leave me feeling antsy when I get up because I can't do anything about it until all of this editing is cleared from my plate.

Even then, when I'm finished with Songs of the Earth the next project is a pronunciation guide for Alpha Trine & Striker. Which honestly is so flippin' ass cool that the project will probably go really fast.

I just remembered that I also need to look over Werewolf's Tale & A Druid Sword so I can submit it. *covers eyes* More editing. At least it's not on a timeline-urgent-people-are-waiting-on-it-you-slow-poke.

After that I need to write seven blog posts for Twin Flames release week, hopefully this weekend. I had hoped that I would have time to write a small prequel for the blog tour and I don't think that I'll have time. I'm going to try anyway. It will strong depend on how long it will take me to write 10k from Ushna's perspective and have a down and dirty edit done before September 24th. Which sounds fairly easy but today is the 12th. I'm going to Chicago the 15th, seeing Ed Sheeran in concert with Sue and Piper on the 16th, and then driving back home on my birthday, the 17th. ALL of my GRL stuff needs to be ordered by the 18th. That would leave me five days to work some magic. We'll see what happens.

All of this editing mojo has tampered with my sleep schedule to the point I'm going to bed at the crack of dawn. I'm trying to fix that now or next week will be hell. Piper is going to smack me upside the head if I fall asleep at Ed's concert. ^_^  Wish me luck because going to need it. And coffee, lots and lots of coffee.

Appearances Blog Tour, T.M. Smith Guest Blog Post and the Music Playlist

Playlist for Opposites

Music is a huge part of my writing process, and there are songs that take me where I need to be to write... and then there are songs specific to certain characters or chapters in the book. Early on there is a scene when Maeve, Tanis and Kaden are en route to the palace and Maeve is taking in her surroundings.

Every time I hear Celtic Dream I think about this particular chapter. Very whimsical, fresh and new. Both Aiyan and Raven play the violin, and Aiya plays the piano, so there is a lot of instrumental music I listen to when I’m writing around them. Rain on the Pond is a song that is mentioned twice in the book, Lament has its own chapter, and Sirtaki is the dance they do at Aiya and Maeve’s wedding.

Every song on this playlist is directly related to something in the book, in some fashion.

Blurb: In the year 2081 our planet survived global warming of an apocalyptic scale. When the dust settled and the water receded Dr. Anthony Smith, one of only a few hundred survivors of GWI, started society anew. Having come to the conclusion that injudicious breeding played a huge role in the destruction of Earth as we knew it in the twenty first century, he worked closely with other survivors to isolate the Dionysus gene. This gene has the ability to manipulate human DNA to ensure that all male children be born gay, and all female children be born lesbians. A new society is born.

In the year 2300 Dr. Smith’s descendants are ushering in the twenty fourth century having maintained control of the government that still rules society. Twins Aiya and Aiyan are preparing to meet their matches and take control of House Gaeland, the current ruling House. But not everything is as it seems.

Love is Love.. it knows no gender and doesn’t conform to restrictions and boundaries. Aiyan has found his soul mate in Kaden, the prince of House Devi that he is matched with and eventually marries. But when the person Aiya falls in love with tests the boundaries put in place after GWI, all hell breaks loose. And in the midst of one secret unraveling, another will emerge. There is a growing anomaly that threatens to destroy over two hundred years of progression. This anomaly is known as Opposites.

Three gay couples run amuck in this short story where clothing, beds, even four walls are all optional!

Want to know what happened that night in the library?
Cirian and Rian had a fight in the library and Rian ends up naked on the desk, on his back, at Cirian's mercy.

Want to know how far things went with ice cream?
A romantic evening by the fire feeding his husband ice cream leads to a lot more than heavy petting for Aiyan and Kaden.

Want to know what was going on when those birds fled?
Travelling hundreds of miles, battling the rebels and then travelling back to House Gaeland will take it out of you. But when Tanis wants something, he takes it. Raven is about to be bent over a tree!

A Note from the Author: I've taken three scenes from Opposites that were cut short and elaborated on the shenanigans that ensued. I also focused more in the beginning on the relationship between Cirian and Rian, to give readers a chance to know them and their inner workings better. I hope you enjoy this free read set in my world of Opposites!

Genre: New Adult Dystopian (M/M F/F M/F)
Length: 188 pages
Publisher: TTC Publishing


Appearances, can be deceiving.

Raven and Tanis are trying very hard to merge their vastly different lifestyles, but Tanis issues with his own past could prove to be more than their fragile relationship can handle. Is their love for each other strong enough to weather the oncoming storm?

Aiya and Sawyer have fought hard to be together in a world where Opposite relationships are generally forbidden. Yet, they are still forced to keep their relationship a secret while they are outside the walls of House Gaeland.

Everyone assumes that the only threat lies outside their walls, the group of rebels led by Cillian. But something is happening within House Gaeland, something that hasn’t happened since GWI. And with all the attention focused on that, their guard is down. An evil that was under their nose all along strikes, and someone will make the ultimate sacrifice to save another.

Appearances is the second book in the Opposites series, the series should be read in order. ** Warning, Opposites is an Adult Dystopian majorly M/M series that contains explicit sexual content and relationships between gay, straight and lesbian couples. **

Author bio:

A military brat born and raised at Ft. Benning Georgia; Smith is an avid reader, reviewer and writer. She now calls Texas home from her small town on the outskirts of the DFW Metroplex. Most days you can find her curled up with her kindle and a good book alongside a glass of something aged and red or a steaming cup of coffee! 
At 42 years young, she's decided to enter the next phase of her life by adding the title of "author" to her list of accomplishments that includes single mom of three disturbingly outspoken and decidedly different kids, one of which is Autistic. Smith is and outspoken advocate for Autism and equal rights for the LGBTQ community.

Her Opposites series is based outside the normal parameters of social acceptability, examining a 'what if'... What If to be gay or lesbian were the norm? What if to be straight labeled you as an Opposite and made YOU the Outkast?
