One Year: Where I Was & Where I Am

Happy Halloween!

This holiday has a strange significance for me now. In myths it’s the day when the veil between the mortal world and the afterlife is the thinnest. And one year ago today, that veil got pretty thin for me.

TW/CW in the post for some medical details and photos of medical-related things. There are no blood, pills, or needles shown.

“Heels Over Head” Interlude: Brandon and Jeremy at the World Aquatics Championships

Yesterday was the Men’s 10m Platform Synchronized Diving event at the 2017 FINA World Championships in Budapest. Which, if you’ve read Heels Over Head, you’ll know is a Pretty Big Deal. I was streaming the finals at my desk, and even though neither the Americans or the Brits got a medal, it will still a great competition! (And of course there’s still the 10m Individual!)

So I wanted to share a short and sweet interlude, imagining if Brandon and Jeremy were at Worlds this week. This is unedited, cavity-inducing, and contains bonus Tom Daley! (If you don’t know who Tom is, google him. You’re welcome.)

NOTE: this short contains spoilers for Heels Over Head, so you definitely shouldn’t read it unless you’ve read the book. (Also, no, it doesn’t answer that Lingering Question at the end of HOH… that’s another story which will be coming later this year.)

I’m in Playboy! (Also, I wrote some books…)

In what may be the strangest announcement of my life, I’m thrilled to announce that I’m now on Playboy.com! I wrote an article about what it’s like to be asexual (from my perspective), and the experience of never being sexually attracted to another person in a culture that is saturated with sex.

Imagine Never Being Sexually Attracted to Another Human Being. That’s How I’ve Felt My Whole Life.

Society is fixated on sex. We’re told that anyone who doesn’t want sex is unnatural. Society is wrong.

I also had a book come out a few days ago!

Heels Over Head is my (first) sports romance, and follows two college platform divers as they begin to prepare for the Olympic games. It’s enemies to lovers, and is about finding family and team, and learning to love yourself just the way you are. It’s a book that I’m incredibly proud of, and I really hope you’ll check it out!

You can find purchase links and all that jazz here.

Summary:

Jeremy Reeve is one of the best divers in the world, and he’s worked hard to get where he is. He intends to keep pushing himself with one very clear goal in mind: winning gold at the summer Olympics in two years. That medal might be the only way to earn his father’s respect as an athlete.

Brandon Evans is everything Jeremy isn’t: carefree, outgoing, and openly gay. With his bright-blue eyes and dramatic tattoos, he’s a temptation that Jeremy refuses to acknowledge. But Jeremy can’t ignore how talented Brandon is–or that Brandon has no interest in using his diving skills to compete.

They’re opposites who are forced to work together as teammates, but Jeremy’s fear of his own sexuality and Brandon’s disinterest in anything “not fun” may end their partnership before it begins. Until a single moment changes everything, and they help each other discover that “team” can also mean family and love.

So I now have three of my five 2017 releases out.

   

Coming up are my summer-themed romance, Heat Wave, which is a bisexual F/F with a summer fling that’s all heat and sex… until it becomes something more. And this fall will bring Changing Colors, an M/M romance about a man learning to stand up for what he believes in, and his gender non-conforming boyfriend who’s there to help him.

  

(And as always, huge amounts of love and awe to Natasha Snow for creating all five of these stunning covers!)
