When my cover designer created the cover for No Filter, we had a hard time finding a suitable cover model for Indy, one of the main characters. Finding cover models for gay romances is a challenge in general, especially if you’re looking for a specific type (that hasn’t been used by twenty other authors already). We finally settled on a model, but neither of us was fully happy with the result.
We tried tweaking it a bit over the last few months, but we never managed to get it exactly right. Finally, we decided to search for a new model. I’m happy with the new cover for No Filter as it reflects Indy much better. I’m trying to get it changed everywhere, but it may take a while, so be patient if you see the old cover popping up!
So, what do you think?
If you’ve read my recent gay romance The Time of My Life, you’ve already met Denver, one of the two leading men. If not, allow me to introduce you to him.
Denver is a twenty-five-year old middle school music teacher, but his dream is to make a career out of singing. He has a phenomenal voice (think Sam Smith) and is cute as a button. But all is not as perfect as it seems with him.

I’ve been sharing how I developed the ideas for my books, because readers often ask: “Where do you get all the ideas for stories?” Today, I’ll be talking a little about The Time of My Life, my next gay romance that will be released soon.
I actually wrote The Time of my Life before I wrote No Filter, the first book in the No Shame Series. It’s been sitting for a while on my Mac, patiently awaiting me being ready to edit it. Somehow, it didn’t feel like the right time yet. I wanted to do the No Shame series first, knowing I could release these quickly and not make readers wait too long. But now the time had come to finish this story and share Denver and Judah, the two main characters, with the world. Continue reading “The Story Behind The Time of My Life”
Rebel was released a week ago, and we’re super happy with the positive response to our story of Rebel, the hot, popular gay porn star, and Troy, a commitment phobe, and their journey to love.
Here are some snippets from reviews:
“When two amazing authors decide to write a book together, this is what you get. A wonderful book with great characters, smoking-hot sex, quirky humor and a well of emotions.” (Tanja) Continue reading “Readers Are Loving Rebel”
It’s only one more day until my next book releases: Rebel, the first book in the new Ballsy Boys series. The Ballsy Boys are our fictitious gay porn company in LA and when one of its super stars Rebel meets a sexy man named Troy, both are convinced they can keep it casual. After all, Rebel is a porn star and Troy is a break up artist. Yeah, not so much.

I am super happy and excited that No Shame released today. This is the fourth and final book in the No Shame series…though readers are already asking (read: begging) me to write a follow up novella. I *may* be persuaded to do this, if someone sends me some really good Belgian chocolate, lol.
Seriously, I know it sounds strange and maybe a bit like bragging, but I am super proud of myself for finishing this series. It started as an idea of a guy on the run for his mobster ex…and that idea turned into four books. Continue reading “No Shame is Released!”
I think this is the question fiction writers get asked most often: “Where do you get all the ideas for stories?” My answer is usually a very short, but unhelpful: “Everywhere.”
It is true, though. I do get ideas from stories from everything and everywhere… Continue reading “Where Do You Get All The Ideas For Stories? (No Shame Series)”
I’m not the type to complain, but in this post, I thought I’d share some unique struggles authors face. Seriously, there needs to be a self-help book on this…or some kind of support system. The struggle is real, people, I’m telling you.
1. Deleting Words
Part of being an author is self-editing and that means ruthlessly deleting words that don’t belong in our manuscript. When they’re empty filler words (my favorite seems to be ‘just’), that’s one thing, but sometimes we have to delete whole paragraphs or even entire scenes. Ouch! I’m telling you, that physically aches. Continue reading “7 Unique Struggles Authors Face”
