Crickets and a new cover to share

Man has it been a long time since I’ve updated! My apologies, friends and readers. I’ve been busy, but not so busy that I couldn’t stop in and drop you an update.

A few things have happened since I took my summer hiatus. Pet and I took a lovely couple of trips out of town, where Pet had the chance to explore some issues important to him, including the use of gender pronounce (from henceforth, I will be using male pronouns for Pet, as requested). We’d like to go out of town again, but the club we’re aiming for has had quite a few issues getting reopened, and will be back up and running in the late fall, supposedly, so that trip has been postponed yet again.

On one trip, I got to talk to a musician I adore, and Pet actually chatted him up quite a bit, no nerves because Pet doesn’t have any special attachment to this guy, whereas I get all nervous and fluttery and fangirl-y around him. I was able to show him a tattoo that means a lot to me, and he called it “rad,” so I’ll take it. We also visited the Mormon temple, as Pet is Mormon, which was a really cool experience. There are obviously restricted parts of the temple that only members of the church can visit, but I was able to see the visitor’s center, the lobby, and walk the grounds. It was beautiful, and if I were a believer, I would have found it quite spiritual.

On our second trip, we went to a convention full of other nerdy people. It was a great time listening to panels of our favorite actors speak, dressing up in costume daily, and taking photos with said actors. Pet got a tattoo of his signed by one actor and had the signature tattooed over a few days later.

Besides those trips, my summer remained quiet. I battled quite a bit of writer’s block, and struggled to come up with any new content, much less anything publishable. I’ve looked into a new project with a group of esteemed authors, and we’ve formed a publishing company of our own, called Heatstroke Press. We have quite a few books out at this time, that launched on September 1st, and there are more launching on the 15th, October 1st, and October 13th.

In fact, I have a short story I’d like to release on 9/15, titled Group Effort: Andrew and Cole. It’s a fun little gangbang story, only around 20 pages, and I hope you like it. I’m posting the cover art here because I’m very proud of it, and the work that the cover artist did. The cover is commissioned from Cover Your Dreams. Without further ado:

I hope you can forgive me for my long absence, and I shall endeavor to post regularly from here on out.
