End of Summer Sale!

Buchanan House Series graphicBeach season is almost over here in the Pacific Northwest & that’s a great reason to have a sale. I don’t really need a reason, but that’s a good one!

I’m also celebrating getting my Buchanan House series back out into the world. For a few years I’ve been a hybrid author but now I’m 100% Indie. While that’s been challenging, it’s also been kind of fun.

But back to the sale! The Buchanan House series will be on a Kindle Countdown Sale through September 2nd. Prices will be the best for the first two days–Aug. 27-28. If you’re looking for a nice long read over the lovely long weekend, this might be the one for you!

Visit the Buchanan House Series Page on Amazon!

One thing, though. Because of a glitch (haha, read: user error) Art House won’t join in the sale until  Thursday, Aug. 29. I’ve learned a lot over the past two months, mainly that it’s all up to me now. So I want to thank all of the readers who have tried one of my books–I appreciate you all!

If you’d like to see just how much I appreciate my readers, subscribe to my newsletter and get a free ebook! Just click this link.

One more thing–I’ve just re-released my noir with witches, The Pinch of the Game, only on PayHip, for those of you who would like an epub version, or if you’d just rather not buy from Amazon. Pinch will be available on PayHip through September 29th, at a savings from first edition prices. On October 1 this book will go into Kindle Unlimited, in time for Halloween. I can’t believe I’m already talking about Halloween!

Learn more about The Pinch of the Game here.

 

Thanks for reading & have a great day!

Buchanan House by Charley Descoteaux

Eric Allen, thirty-three-year-old line cook, moved in with his grandmother, Jewell, after a disastrous coming-out when he was in middle school. She raised him, and he cared for her when she fell ill. When Jewell died she left everything to Eric—angering his parents and older brother. The inheritance isn’t much, but Eric and his bestie Nathan pool their money and buy an abandoned hotel on an isolated stretch of the Central Oregon Coast. The hotel isn’t far from Lincoln City—a town with its own Pride Festival and named for a president—so they christen it Buchanan House after James Buchanan, the “confirmed bachelor” president with the close male friend.

Eric and Nathan need a handyman to help them turn Buchanan House into the gay resort of their dreams. Eric finds Tim Tate in the local listings and over the months leading to opening weekend Tim reveals himself as a skilled carpenter with many hidden talents. Eric falls hard for Tim, but before he can see a future with the gorgeous handyman he has to get over twenty years of being bullied and shamed by his birth family. It would be much easier if Eric’s brother Zach weren’t trying to grab part of the inheritance or ruin opening weekend.

A “first time” snippet…

Hand drawing heart in sand on the beachHola, Snippeteers!

 

This has been one crazy summer at Casa Des and I’ve missed everyone at Snippet Sunday.

Here’s a long one, to make up for being away. It’s from Buchanan House, which will be released on Wednesday! This is Eric and Tim’s first date so there’s a little awkward to go with the smexy.

 

Tim rested his palm on Eric’s chest and slowly turned toward him. They gazed into each other’s eyes for a long moment. Tim didn’t look away when he unbuttoned Eric’s shirt and eased him back against the arm of the couch. By the time Tim’s lips found his, Eric was almost squirming in anticipation. Tim kissed him until he felt like he’d become part of the sofa, as though his muscles had no tension but that which Tim shared with him.

Eric whimpered when Tim’s mouth left his and began a slow exploration of his body. He’d thought maybe Tim didn’t have much experience making love, or maybe he’d just hoped they would be on even footing in that arena. It didn’t take long before he was proven very wrong. And how wonderfully wrong he was. Maybe Tim hadn’t always been so reserved and inscrutable, or maybe men on the coast cared less about things like that. In Portland, if you weren’t a social butterfly, you might as well be invisible.

Just then, Eric couldn’t be mistaken for invisible. Tim’s lips and tongue, his hands and the warm weight of his body, made Eric feel more than he’d felt… ever. He’d never made any noise during his few stolen encounters with his “boyfriend” while Jewell spent time with friends. Before long, Eric was convinced it was all about his partner. All about the ways Tim touched him, the way Tim sighed in open appreciation when he freed Eric from his clothes. Tim Tate had him moaning like a porn star, and the kicker was, Eric didn’t feel one iota of embarrassment or self-consciousness. Nothing but wonderful.

 

Thanks for reading!

If you’d like to read the whole story it’s available for pre-order from all the usual places, and will be released on Wednesday, August 19th! I have a book blast and blog tour planned, with giveaways of course. The schedule is here and i’ll be updating it with links as the posts go live to make it easier to enter.

Buchanan House Giveaway

BuchananHouse_FBbanner_DSPBuchanan House has hit the Coming Soon page at the Dreamspinner store, and is available for pre-order! I’m working on a tour that starts in mid-August, so if you have anything you’d like to ask me or any subjects you’d like me to write about just let me know! It’s been a year since i’ve done a blog tour with guest posts and everything, and it’s going to be a lot of fun. All that work will keep me from obsessively checking my email for word about book #2, or sales numbers.

Okay that’s just crazy talk, of course i’ll be checking!

I’ll be visiting all the stops on my Cover Reveal this weekend, to thank my hosts and see what everyone has to say about B&Bs.The Rafflecopter will be open through July 24th and the prize is a backlist book of your choice (not including Buchanan House but The Pinch of the Game is fair game ;))!

 

 

Heads-up: Buchanan House Cover Reveal and #Giveaway

The Cover Reveal event for Buchanan House is in two days! The lovely blogs below will help me show off my sweet L.C. Chase cover, and give away a backlist book!

1800x1600Banner

I’m excited about this one–I know, i’m excited for every release, it’s an occupational hazard. 😉 Buchanan House is a contemporary and is a much sweeter story than i usually write—very romantic (and sexy, don’t let the word “sweeter” fool you).

Friday, July 17th BH hits the Coming Soon Page, and release day will be August 19th!

This may turn out to be my first-ever series, if Dreamspinner likes Book #2. *fingers crossed*
