What's new with me...

First of all, many apologies for the very sporadic blogging. I'm getting more and more hopeless at keeping up with my blog in my old age...

So, what's been happening?

My main news is that I'm writing again for my most long standing and best loved publisher, Black Lace. Perhaps in the light of recent publishing developments [50 Shades, what else?] this iconic line of erotica for women and erotic romance is relaunching in September, and as well as writing something new for the line, I have a couple, thus far, of Black Lace Classic reprints scheduled. THE STRANGER will be out this September and THE DEVIL INSIDE, next September [the latter was going to be out in Jan '13, but that's been changed]. Black Lace will have a new cover 'look', which I know is going to be utterly fabulous and the cover image guy for THE STRANGER is absolutely scrumptious. Not quite as gorgeous as the wonderful Paul McGann, on whom my Paul was modelled, but definitely easy on the eye. I'll be revealing covers as soon as I receive the final versions. In the meantime here's a lovely piccie of *my* Paul... ;)

Yum! And he even wears the outfit too.

There's also another very exciting Black Lace 'thing' that I'm waiting for a few more details of before I start plugging it. Won't be too long though... definitely by August.

But it's not just reprints. I'm working on a new title, even as we speak. This one's called THE ACCIDENTAL CALL GIRL, and in it, as you might gather from the title, the heroine Lizzie Aitchison gets mistaken for an escort in the bar of a posh hotel, and decides to play a long with the misconception because the 'punter', one John Smith [yes, really] is an absolute dish. Initially only intending to play 'the game' for one delicious interlude, Lizzie, masquerading as 'Bettie', finds herself mesmerised by the handsome and dominant Mr Smith, and as he only seems to want a temporary companion, she continues with her masquerade as a high class hooker. For just the one very special and extremely kinky client.

Needless to say, I'm having enormous fun with this one, and have already written about 20K words so far.

I've also recently been working on an erotic romance novella called TEMPTED BY TWO. This one's a ménage a trois story, about Katie, who's taking a country holiday in order to reassess her life, and who becomes involved with famous and charismatic artist Marcus Dane, and his handsome manager, muse and lover, Owen. I'm hoping this story might be available in a couple of weeks or so.

There's a load of other stuff going on, but lastly, here are two important snippets of news for right now!

If you fancy a rather dotty but fun erotic horror story, free, gratis and for nothing, you can download WESLEY AND THE SEX ZOMBIES from a variety of outlets. There's a taster of it here, along with the links. For the moment, while Wesley is free at,  I'm still waiting for it to go free at, but I'm hoping that'll happen soon, and I'll post here, and tweet and Facebook it when it does!

Finally, if you're looking for some BDSM romance reading after you've finished the infamous Fifty Shades, my buddy Lucy Felthouse has assembled a hot half dozen titles, by various authors, that you might like to try.  Check it out here:

Quite by chance... yeah right... my title IN SEBASTIAN'S HANDS is amongst the selections! ;)

WooHoo! Beyond ecstatic that Black Lace is getting "reborn." I'm assuming this isn't a digital only venture - that we'll see books in print too?

Oh, and they totally need to reprint The Tutor :)

Glad to hear that Black Lace has seen the light! And congratulations on all your releases. You've got my head spinning.

Thanks, you guys! As I understand it the new/classic Black Lace titles will be out in print too, as well as digital.
