Here it is! Kelly Shorten, the cover artist at Musa, has done a fine job with the cover for Second Skin. I’m excited to show it off, so here it is!
Shane Kalman looked forward to exchanging military life for a civvy job where he could freely be out of the closet, but the position he lands is nothing like he imagined. He didn’t plan to work undercover for a corrupt detective agency, much less gathering dirt on the city’s most dangerous crime boss. And he sure as heck didn’t expect to have his mind temporarily switched with a tabby cat in order to do it.
His fellow agent, Jamison Rees, is a charmer and sometimes a German shepherd, but Shane doesn’t need animal instincts to know that he’s hiding something. When the job goes south and Shane’s brother becomes a target for the crime boss’s wrath, all evidence points to a mole in the detective agency. A dog may be man’s best friend, but is he a cat’s? Can Shane trust Jamison at all?
Second Skin will be available from Musa Publishing December 13th.
Thanks to this year’s NaNoWriMo, I’ve finished the first draft of my still untitled dragon shifter story. I have several titles in mind, none of the especially good, so I’ll probably post a poll later and let the power of the crowd decide. Anyway, it’s going to be a long novel — the current estimate is at 65-70k — and I swear it’s as much of a love letter to Yosemite as a love story between the two characters.
Arrest Me Not is at 15k and rising. Untitled Dragon Shifter took over my head for most of NaNoWriMo, but Grant’s story is coming along. Unless a promising subplot hits me, it’ll probably end up around 35k, which is a little shorter than Touch Me Not. But hey, it’ll be less expensive too.
In other, OTHER great news, Second Skin’s awesome cover will be debuting tomorrow. Stay tuned….
Good news, everyone! Touch Me Not is on sale for 3.99 through the weekend!

Morning, gals and guys!
I signed up for NaNoWriMo last night. (Buddy me here — let’s race to 50k together!) Contrary to what my profile says, it’s actually not my first year. I’ve been NaNoing with various success since approximately ’05. But it’s my first year as a published writer, and I felt a new screen name was in order.
Anyhoo, I also cobbled together a rough, rough, rough (rough!) summary of my NaNo book. Introducing Arrest Me Not:
In an alternate universe, where gender is less important than how dominant a person is, Sheriff Grant O’Shea is a man without a soul mate. As a dom, his lifespan would be considerably greater with a sub to temper his power. But Grant’s never met his match, and slowly but surely, his power is burning him out.
When a grizzly murder strikes the small city of Tamarack, Grant leads the investigation. But he’s not one-hundred percent after being shot six months, and he’ll need all the dominant strength and willpower he can muster: The only witness — and prime suspect — is none other than his mate.
I don’t think this’ll hit 50k, but I have other WIP’s I can finish once I’m done with Arrest. I’m going to cross that finish line one way or another! Come join me on NaNo. It’s going to be a fab time.
