I’m on SJD Peterson’s Blog!

┬áCome see me acting all professional and shit! And check out her book, Jess’s Journey, coming (I think) Monday from Dreamspinner Press!


Losing Angelo…

Sierra and I were extremely fortunate to have the stunning Angelo Riguero on the cover of our first Longfellow novel, Longfellow Seduced. We were also lucky enough to spend time with him at Ellora’s Cave’s RomantiCon – both of us last year and me, solo, the previous years. He was a warm, friendly person, incredibly approachable, and with a knack for making a woman feel desirable without being skeezy. I was horrified and heartbroken to hear that he was shot outside a bar in Dallas, while apparently trying to break up a fight. This is so wrong on so many levels. I’m almost beyond words. I’ll have something a bit more elegant in the next day or so but for now, I’ll let pictures speak for me.

Angelo and Sierra – Romanticon 2011

Angelo and Bladerunner Barbie, er, VJ.

Rest with angels, Angelo.


So, Longfellow Seduced is out at Ellora’s Cave (get it HERE) and Cat gave it the most awesome customer review! It totally made Sierra’s Thursday, and it started my Friday on a totally high note! Thanks, Cat! (Exit VJ, the validation whore, lol).

Now back to preparations for the EDJ, a little happier than I was fifteen minutes ago! And, here’s more Angelo, just to keep the happy going!

Okay, you can’t see his face in this one, but this is last year’s RomantiCon, where he was more or less DJ for the par-tay part of the evenings. This pic, besides showing some fucking amazing muscles, reminds me a little of Magnus – love a guy who knows how to play the crowd!

THIS one’s from RomantiCon 2010. Angelo is signing the cover flat of Joey W. Hill’s Branded Sanctuary – which features him looking pretty damned glorious (fitting, as it’s a pretty damned glorious book – READ IT if you haven’t – it’s het/BDSM/hurt-comfort/friends-to-lovers/amazing). And that’s the equally glorious Joey W. Hill with him. This is another Magnus picture – autograph sighing and all.

And if I’m gonna pimp Joey, I’ll mention Rough Canvas. It was my first BDSM, my first m/m, and it literally changed my life. Seriously – one of the best books I’ve ever read, *always* on my Nook, and one of about three I go to whenever I’m jammed up. I wasn’t at all surprised to find Joey a wonderful person, not after reading Rough Canvas.

Happy Friday, Everyone!

Longfellow Inspiration

As we prepare for the LONG awaited re-release of Longfellow Seduced (May 9th from Ellora’s Cave), I thought I’d share the gorgeous original picture that first inspired our chauvinistic oaf, Magnus Crowe. Kudos to Sierra for finding it!

Butt cleavage… sigh…
