A Happy Holiday Snippet!

Comfort 1600X2400Happy Snippet Day!

Here’s one from my maiden voyage into indie pubbing—the second edition of my first published male-male romantic story. I’ve changed the title to Comfort (to get a bad taste out of my mouth… don’t ask), but otherwise it’s mostly the same as the first edition. Except the cover.

Sam and Charlie are an established couple, spending Christmas with Sam’s family for the first time, for… reasons that aren’t the point of the story.

 

 

Sam took Charlie’s arm at the top of the stairs and gently turned him around. He’d planned on stealing a kiss before returning to the celebration and was surprised when Charlie grinned and took his hand, pulling in the opposite direction.

Charlie locked the bathroom door and pushed Sam against it. After the shortest of kisses he dropped to his knees and sighed as he worked to get Sam’s pants open. It was harder than it should’ve been, and Charlie laughed softly at his own fumbling fingers. Sam rested a hand on his and with the other turned his face up.

“My turn again already?” He grinned.

Charlie stood up and kissed him, and then chuckled softly as he dropped back onto the floor between Sam’s feet. “You think last night was for you… silly boy.”

 

Thanks for reading!

I’ve reached the 40K mark in Eric’s story and have no idea where i’m going to get another 10-20K that’s not filler. Still no PNR edits from LI…

Okay, that’s all for me this week. Check out more flashes of fiction at Snippet Sunday!

P.S. If’ you’ve read this far, you deserve a treat. Comfort is free at Smashwords. Have a Happy Holiday!

Goin’ Indie… for free!

Not long ago I got the rights back to my first-ever (published) Male-Male romantic fiction. I wasn’t sure what to do with it… or if I would do anything with it. It’s a short story I originally wrote for an anthology call. It features two of my all-time favorite characters so I didn’t want to abandon it.

So I found a sweet cover, gave it a quick polish and a new title, and tried my hand at self-publishing. Since it’s the holidays, and I love giving presents, this week it’s free on ARe and Smashwords!

Comfort 1600X2400How much love does it take to heal the wounds of hate?

Sam and Charlie have been together over a decade, and their commitment to each other has only grown stronger through the years. But love isn’t always easy, and eighteen months after a violent assault, their relationship is struggling. Charlie can’t shake the lingering fear of attracting more violence by displaying affection, and he’s angry at himself for not getting past it. Sam would do anything to help Charlie feel better—if only he knew what to do.

The century-old farmhouse in Northwest Oregon is the perfect place to spend the holidays with Sam’s family, but it was their refuge after the attack, and it still holds painful memories of those difficult first months. Christmas should be a joyful time, but even being surrounded by people who love him isn’t enough to make Charlie feel safe. They agreed not to exchange gifts but Sam has a surprise planned that he hopes will make everything merry and bright. But he may end up more surprised than Charlie.
