June15-3 008 (Copy)This last week really feels like summer for the first time all year–probably because the wind has finally dropped and I can properly enjoy being out in the garden. The poppy field photo above is from one of last week’s runs–I do love where I live!

Not a great deal to report on the work front, although I have written a blog post for the Samhain blog, so that’s something. And today I have to do my accounts. Ugh. Hence the major procrastination and sudden fascination with housework

June15-2 013 (Copy)This is me, starting as I mean to go on by posting weekly on a Tuesday :)

Not a great deal to report here. The children are growing, as are the weeds in the garden. I did get out there and tame some of them into submission, but there’s a whole load more that need a good thrashing. At least the wind has finally died down and it’s nicer to be out there now.

Gabriel is keen to try all kinds of new foods, although less keen to be left with anyone other than me or Andy. I don’t remember separation anxiety like this with Daisy, and should probably go and Google some ideas of how to help him out, as I’m meant to be going to a wedding celebration next month that will involve leaving him from 3pm till late. God, I’d feel awful if he cried the entire time.

As far as writing goes, I’m discussing the possibility of writing with someone–more on this as we firm up ideas. I think it’s the only way I’ll get a novel out this year, and I’d welcome the motivation and camaraderie of co-writing. I hope…

Occasionally I manage to get out for a run. I’m aiming for three a week and am vaguely following the c25k plan to ease back into running (and into my old clothes /sighs/). I’m on week 5 at the moment, where it suddenly steps up a notch. Here are a couple of views from recent runs:

Yeah, it really is beautiful around here! This afternoon we’re having a picnic by the river while Andy fishes. I’d better go make sandwiches, hadn’t I?

What have you all been up to?

These two monkeys have been stealing all my time!

These two monkeys have been stealing all my time!

Hello all you lovely people! Yes, I’ve been a negligent blogger, but I think in the grand scheme of things, that’s better than being a negligent mother and I’ve been concentrating on my family for the last six months. Yep, hard to believe it, but Gabriel is now 5 1/2 months old. Wow. How did that happen? And yes, I’ll be sharing more pictures :)

So, what’s been going on? Well, in April we had to move house. Long story short: the landlady was selling the house and we hadn’t yet found somewhere we wanted to buy, so we’re in another rented house. However, this one is bigger and it has this at the end of the garden:

May15 141 (Copy)

Yep, that’s cows in that field, and they come right up to the fence. It’s a nice big garden too. The house is a 1960s semi on an estate of similar houses and I feel like I’m living in the kind of cosy suburbia I’d have hated when I was younger, but these days I’m loving it. The perfect place to raise kids, and a pleasant walk to Daisy’s school.

Moving was a bit of a nightmare, though, not least because I’m more of a hoarder than I was willing to admit (though nowhere near as bad as Jasper), and seeing all my stuff pulled out of the corners where I’d stashed it was a wake up call. I’m now committed to doing a KonMari overhaul of all my possessions and am currently almost finished with the paperwork blitz. It feels so good to let go of things that don’t “spark joy” in my heart! Lewis and I both heartily endorse The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying. Most useful book I’ve ever bought.

But you all want to know about Gabriel and Daisy, don’t you? Have some pictures:

May15 028 (Copy)May15-2 028 (Copy)May15-2 018 (Copy)

Yes, my children are adorable! Daisy loves being a big sister and has become a real help around the house, although she does still need some occasional nagging to get off her tablet and tidy up (she’s developing some tweenager traits). Gabriel is a delightful baby. Full of fun and joy and relatively chilled out, although he does still have his moments of angry frustration (when attempting to crawl) and loud crying (hungry and tired, usually). But that’s babies for you–I can’t really complain as he’s happy 95% of the time. He’s also growing really fast and has started eating mushy veg in the last couple of weeks. They tell you to wait until six months these days, but I just couldn’t wait any longer as he was desperate to get at my food. At the moment he’s a fan of bananas, parsnip and sweet potato.

Andy and I are getting along marvellously–he’s loving being a dad and is very easy to live with. We’ve been taking long walks at the weekend, and are working our way along the Collier’s Way cycle path which runs along a disused railway line. The scenery is absolutely stunning. Here’s a couple of pics from one of our recent walks:

May15-2 008 (Copy)May15-2 007 (Copy)

So, life is great, if very different to how it was a year ago. I’m now in a different house with two extra people to look after (Andy works such long hours with his commute, that I end up doing most of the cooking and housework, but that seems only fair). And writing hasn’t happened at all in the last six months. To be honest, I’m struggling to work out how I’m ever going to concentrate for long enough to write the next novel (which is brewing inside my head and really wants to be written), but then again I know that once Gabriel can sit unsupported and crawl he’ll be able to entertain himself for longer stretches than he can at the moment. All the same, I think I might have to write a few shorts first to test it out, and then see about finding a co-writer for the novel.

One thing I will be doing from now on, though, is a weekly blog post–even if just a few lines and a picture–to let you all know what I’m up to. And I have a few competition ideas too, so that will be fun :)

Something I’ve also been up to is sewing, and for some reason I set up a sewing (and knitting and crocheting) blog–because if you’re having trouble updating one blog, you really need another, right?! But anyway, it’s there if any of you are interested in taking a look. I wanted to document what I make and share any tips and tricks I come up with to help other textile craft enthusiasts. My crafting alter-ego is Anna-Jo and you can find me here:

And I’ll leave you with a pic of me and Gabriel at the bottom of the garden:

May15 104 (Copy)

What have the rest of you been up to? I’ve missed hearing your news. Fill me in!

Love and hugs,

Jo xxx

Today we’d like to welcome Racheline Maltese and Erin McRae to the blog to talk about their latest release, Room 1024.

While Room 1024 was in production, our editor pointed out a place where one of the main characters, an older dom named Lou, came off as kind of a jerk.

“Well, she’s not wrong….” Erin said.

“Man, we always write guys like this,” I replied.

And while all of those observations are true, Lou (and a lot of our other characters) are people who are very comfortable with themselves, very outspoken, and inclined to be somewhat amused by what other people will do when they aren’t comfortable with themselves.

Depending on where you set the mix for these traits you get everything from Lou, slightly abrasive dom, to Victor, the not-actually-a-villain of our Love in Los Angeles series.

Why write characters like this? Sometimes, it’s because we know guys like this. Sometimes, it’s because we aspire to be guys like this. And sometimes, at least in some circumstances, we already are. Mostly, though, we’re interested in how someone who thinks they have everything under control, upsets the apple cart when they inevitably don’t.

Room 1024


When Cameron takes his submissive boyfriend Noah to a gay men’s leather convention in San Francisco, Cam expects to spend the week exploring their relationship and experimenting with non-monogamy. What he doesn’t expect is to run into his own former dom, Lou, in an embarrassingly public reunion.

While Noah is enthusiastic about the opportunity to play with the former international leather title-holder, Cam is more wary. He and Lou have unfinished business. A four-way encounter with Lou and his sub Stephen could be great fun—or it could show Noah that Cameron can never quite be the dom he wants and needs.

As Cameron and Noah work through the uncertainties in their relationship, Noah is offered everything he ever wanted, in a completely different way than he ever expected, leading all four men to discover that sometimes the only way forward is to revisit the past.

Bio: Erin McRae and Racheline Maltese are authors of the gay romance series Love in Los Angeles, set in the film and television industry — Starling (September 10, 2014), Doves (January 21, 2015), and Phoenix (June 10, 2015) — from Torquere Press. Their gay romance novella series Love’s Labours, set in the theater world — Midsummer (May 2015), and Twelfth Night (Fall 2015), is from Dreamspinner Press. They also have a story in Best Gay Romance 2015 from Cleis Press and edited by Felice Picano.

Racheline is a NYC-based performer and storyteller; Erin is a writer and blogger based in Washington, D.C. They write stories and scripts about the intersection of private lives, fame, and desire. You can find them on the web at

“Cameron Evan Beck, get your perfect ass in here!”

Cameron turns to follow the voice, so familiar and fond coming from one of the workshop rooms, before he even thinks about it. It’s only as Lou, completely dressed in leathers and holding a bullwhip in his hand, pulls him into a hug in front of what’s clearly a workshop Lou’s leading, that Cam starts to realize just how fucked he is.

“This,” Lou says, introducing him to the room before Cameron can even manage to make a sound, “is Dr. Cameron Beck, professor of queer studies at Boston University. ” There’s only the slightest of dramatic pauses before he adds, “Cameron used to be my boy.”

With that, Lou gives him a wet, smacking kiss on the cheek.

Cameron can’t help but look sheepish. This is not how he wants to be introduced to a room ever, even if reflex and history leave him a little proud.

Lou calls a break with his class and then turns to Cam again. “Are you here with anyone?” he asks quietly, glancing down appraisingly at the leather band on Cameron’s left wrist. He looks good. Lou’s not tall, but he is broad with wide shoulders, a strong chest and more than a bit of a belly. His charisma is as intense as ever, and although the touch of gray now at his temples is startling to Cam it’s also really hot.

“Yeah,” Cameron says, unsure why he doesn’t mention Noah’s name or any of his many places in Cam’s life. Forming sentences seems really hard.

“Good. Me too,” Lou says and tips his head toward a man who must be in his early thirties sitting on the floor in the corner of the room, quietly rebraiding a whip he’s obviously in the process of repairing.

Cameron feels his jaw tense with unavoidable and incredibly stupid jealousy; his fingers were never nimble enough to be really good at that sort of work.

“Are you competing?” Lou asks as if Cameron has actually been keeping up his end of the conversation.

“No,” Cam says. The whole leatherman beauty pageant competition thing may be fun to watch, but it’s never been among his aspirations. “You?”

“Oh no. Enjoying my emeritus position and a lack of annoying travel way too much. ”

Gabriel approves of the new release!

Gabriel approves of the new release!

I’m taking a few minutes to type this while balancing a sleeping baby on my lap. Yes, Scrap is out today. It’s the third in The Bristol Collection (previous books: Junk and Stuff), and it features two minor characters from Stuff who ended up demanding their own story. I hope you all enjoy the read!

Also, check out the release day review, excerpt and giveaway over on Sinfully Sexy :)

Scrap coverThe Bristol Collection #2

When things come to a head, there’s nowhere to go but down…

On the surface, Derek “Call Me Dare” Nelson’s life is simple, doing up custom campervans while living in a slightly illegal caravan in his riverfront yard. When a handsome, smooth-talking developer offers to buy the land out from under his feet, Dare realizes it’s the same man he had to escort home from a party months ago for causing a drunken scene.

Grant Matravers lives a double life, attempting to adjust to weekends as a single, divorced gay man while staying closeted at work. The strain of keeping up the part-time pretense, missing his kids, and now a problematic attraction to the shave-headed, tattooed Dare, has worn his emotional barriers dangerously thin.

Dare blasts through those barriers in a way Grant isn’t prepared for, challenging everything he thought he knew about himself as a gay man. But as their chemistry heats up and the intimacy between them grows, Grant edges toward a decision that could blow up in his face. Exposing a hornet’s nest of complications that could destroy any chance for happily ever after.

Product Warnings

Contains a man desperately in need of redemption, another with a chip on his shoulder the size of an oak tree, frotting in camper vans, a sensual head-shaving scene and several guest appearances from Mas.

Today we’d like to welcome the dynamic duo Kat and Agnes who write as K A Merikan to the blog. Their latest release, Guns n’ Boys: Homicidal Instinct (Book #2) came out today!

RM: It’s been an exciting and busy time for you the past few months, you’ve moved back to Poland from the UK and are now writing full time. How are you settling in to your new routine?

K & A: It’s great, we finally have days off :) When we still needed our day jobs, free time and socializing were pushed to the backburner because we knew we needed to produce content if we wanted to eventually write full-time. Neither of us has any serious obligations (no children, no mortgage, etc.) so we figured if we’re gonna do this, we need to focus all our efforts on writing. For the last few years we came back from work, ate, and then worked until we were too tired to go on. Now that writing is all we do, we can actually organize our days around it and do other things, like going to the pool or sightseeing without feeling that we’re compromising the work that matters. Of course, we frequently end up writing a bit even on our days off, but that’s completely up to us.

We now live in the countryside and take long walks through the fields and the nearby woods, which really helps us clear our heads, as well as come up with new ideas. It’s pretty great :)

RM: 2015 is going to be another busy year for you, there’s Guns ‘n Boys Book 2, Pride – The Copper Horse #2 and personally I may be a little excited about Ghost from The Devil’s Ride getting his own book! What else can we expect this year? (Because of course 3 books isn’t enough ;) )

K & A: Unless there’s a change in our plans and we come up with an idea we absolutely need to write ASAP we’re gonna focus on continuing with ongoing series. We might write the final book of The Copper Horse later this year, but first things first, so expect at least two biker books – Ghost’s story will be our next project. The other book in the Sex & Mayhem series we will probably release this year will be the story of a nomad assassin whom Tooth discussed with Luci in The Devil’s Ride. We also plan to release Guns n’ Boys books 3 and 4, which is what we’re probably most excited about. There are some side projects we’re considering, but nothing’s set in stone yet.

RM: In addition to the M/M books you’re releasing you’ve also created the pen name Miss Merikan for writing M/F romance. How did this come about?

K & A: For a very long time we weren’t interested in M/F, both as authors and readers, but 2014 brought on some changes, and both of us actually read some good books from this genre. I believe it inspired us to think about possible M/F plotlines, and ideas started coming. I know some authors use stereotypical M/F plotlines in M/M, but we believe it doesn’t work that well most of the time. Writing M/F gives us the possibility to explore the topics we have so far rejected because we didn’t think they would be suitable for our M/M books. It’s also a lot of fun to show our take on M/F relationships. You can expect as much weird and wonderful as from the books we write as K.A. Merikan.

RM: What should we expect from Miss Merikan this year?

K & A: Very soon we’ll be releasing a contemporary New Adult romance called All Strings Attached. It’s a London-based story about a crazy doll collector and a goth makeup artist, who struggle with defining their relationship, among other things. We really loved writing this one because it’s very close to our experience, focused on how difficult and silly love can be. Next in line is a biker book that we’re writing now. The working title is Stripped Raw, but we don’t want to reveal much yet, as it has a very surprising twist. The third novel is a paranormal biker book with time travel, this one’s called Mabel and the Beast. And last but not least, Split, Astaroth’s story :)

RM: How is writing M/F romance different to writing M/M and was it easy to make this transition?

K & A: The biggest challenge was vocabulary, i.e. we needed to learn more words for various lady parts ;) Apart from that, the transition was really smooth. Now that we unlocked this door, we’re full of ideas :)

RM: How did you start writing together? Have either of you ever written anything without the other?

K & A: We’ve written some short stories and fanfiction on our own, but that was years ago. Both of us realized that we prefered writing with a partner and tried it with different people, but when we started working together, it was a perfect fit. Our goals are the same, and we inspire one another. Having shared many interests, we knew each other long before we started our first project, but one time we were at a friend’s house for a few days and started honestly talking about books. We chatted through the night, and before the sun came up we had a story planned out :)

RM: With regards to your writing, what’s your process, do you each write a character or do you write everything together?

K & A: Each of us is “responsible” for one main character, everything else is done together. We usually alternate writing a paragraph or two, but it can be more or less, depending who is more inspired at the moment. We also plan everything together.

RM: Have you ever completely disagreed as to where a story is going?

K & A: There were minor disagreements, about what to do about a character, whether to include an epilogue or not, but nothing major. We usually agree, and if not there’s always a way to reach compromise.

RM: You don’t write in your native tongue, has this ever caused you problems?

K & A: It definitely postponed the moment we felt confident enough to write in English. If it weren’t for Kat’s sister and her dare, we’d probably still be writing for fun only. I suppose that’s an issue for many non-native authors who choose to write in English. We have to be extra careful of grammar and the possibility of false friends slipping into the manuscript. On the other hand, I believe that the perspective of coming from a language that’s very different in structure and stylistics can be beneficial. It makes us think differently about our language choices.

RM: Thanks for taking the time to talk to us today and congratulations on your new release!

Guns n’ Boys: Homicidal Instinct (Book #2)

– You can take a killer’s memory, but not his instinct —

All Seth wants is to live free with the man he loves. But escaping death at the hands of the mafia is just the beginning of an uphill struggle. When Domenico wakes up from his impromptu surgery and doesn’t even remember Seth’s name, Seth’s world falls apart. Suddenly it’s him who has to plan an escape from New York City and navigate their way to Mexico. All that without even knowing if the man of his life will ever love him again.

Domenico doesn’t know who to trust and what to believe. The man who introduces himself as his brother seems to hide dark secrets behind a cheerful smile. With the mafia breathing down their necks, there is no time to piece together the puzzle of Domenico’s life, and each time he thinks he’s solved it, a new part appears to be missing. Dom needs to find out who he really is, what he’s capable of… and what is the real story hidden behind Seth’s intense eyes.

Themes: mafia, homophobia, assassin, organized crime, amnesia, road trip, chase

WARNING: Adult content. If you are easily offended, this book is not for you.

‘Guns n’ Boys’ is a gritty story of extreme violence, offensive language, abuse, and morally ambiguous protagonists. Behind the morbid facade, there is a splash of inappropriate dark humor, and a love story that will crawl under your skin.

Locked Out by Josephine Myles

Getting accidentally locked out of his hotel room on Valentine’s Day night is embarrassing enough for teacher Martin Cooper, but the fact he’s stark naked makes it even worse. It doesn’t help that the one person he runs into is Rod, the gorgeous man he’d been checking out earlier in the hotel pool. But when Rod offers Martin a refuge, the night heats up. Now if only Martin could get the hang of this seduction business…

gabriel5Hi everyone! Hope you’ve had a wonderful Christmas. I’ve been absent from the blog for a while now as the last few weeks of pregnancy were hard work and I went on official maternity leave (they’re pretty strict about how much self-employed people can work while still claiming maternity allowance). However, Andy and I now have a beautiful baby boy. Woohoo!

He’s called Gabriel James Marr, born on the 23rd December, and he was 7lbs 11oz. What’s more, he’s absolutely gorgeous and an amazingly contented, sweet-tempered baby. When he isn’t demanding milk…

Labour was… interesting. I’m going to give you the opportunity to skip the next two paragraphs if you’d rather not know any details.

I had wanted a natural labour and waterbirth at the local midwife unit. However, a few weeks before my due date I discovered my platelets had dropped to a level which put me into a high risk group, meaning I’d have to give birth at the hospital in Bath. I wasn’t thrilled at the prospect (bad memories of Daisy being whisked off to intensive care after I gave birth to her there) but was assured I could still have a waterbirth. But when I went into early labour and got to the hospital, they took my blood again and said my platelets had dropped again. If labour didn’t progress quickly I would need to be induced, and an epidural would be out of the question, meaning I’d have to have a general anaesthetic should I need a ceasarean.

It wasn’t what I wanted to hear and my contractions slowed right down as a result. I ended up being put on a hormone drip to get labour started after the more gentle inductions failed. No one warned me just how much more violent this would make the whole process. I managed to birth Daisy with no painkillers whatsoever, but this time I was huffing on the gas and air like a crack addict. Poor old Andy did his best to support me through it with massage but I have never been in so much pain in my entire life, and because I was hooked up to a drip and the baby heartbeat monitor I couldn’t move around as much as I wanted to to help take my mind off the pain. Fortunately the whole process was relatively quick, and after going on the drip at 2pm, my baby boy was born at 6.08pm. I was pretty shocky and shaking like a leaf, but then my baby boy was in my arms and everything was right with the world :D


We ended up having to stay in hospital overnight as they wanted to monitor Gabriel, but we finally got to go home on Christmas Eve and have had the best (if most chaotic) Christmas ever. I’m still trying to catch up with myself, but am having an idyllic time with my newly blended family. Daisy adores her little brother even if her Christmas presents are currently more interesting to her! Anyway, here’s a few pics because I can’t resist showing off :)


A couple of hours after birth.

Gabriel: three days old and in his first hoodie!

Please excuse me if I take a while responding to any emails/comments, etc. I’ll do my best, but I have so much to catch up with and a very hungry little boy to feed!

Hope you’re all having a wonderful time, and Happy New Year!

When Archie meets Dan after The Change, he realisesthere is no such thing as a random meeting of soul mates, it’s all mapped out in the stars. Now all he’s got to do is hope those orbiting planets stay in alignment and true love finds him again.

Locked Out

By Josephine Myles

Getting accidentally locked out of his hotel room on Valentine’s Day night is embarrassing enough for teacher Martin Cooper, but the fact he’s stark naked makes it even worse. It doesn’t help that the one person he runs into is Rod, the gorgeous man he’d been checking out earlier in the hotel pool. But when Rod offers Martin a refuge, the night heats up. Now if only Martin could get the hang of this seduction business…

Hi everyone! One thing I’ve discovered this week is that my motivation is seriously waning. I don’t know if that’s driven by baby hormones or simply because I’m no longer getting a decent night’s sleep, but I’ve decided I’ll start claiming Maternity Allowance at the beginning of December, and will no longer be officially “working” then. I’ll do a bit of work on Custom Fit when I feel the urge, but I’m not going to give myself official deadlines and targets as I don’t think that would be helpful right now.

I’m also feeling more of a nesting urge, and would rather spend my days sorting out the house and getting it ready for the new arrival (two new arrivals, if you count Andy who will be unofficially moving in when the baby’s born) than on writing.

Nap every day, even if only for fifteen minutes. I’m getting good at this napping lark.
Write 10,000 words of Custom Fit Nope. Didn’t happen.
Write a couple of guest blog posts I’ve been asked for. – Wrote these, and they’ve both been posted already! Check out my one on Thanksgiving for It’s About the Book, and an interview (with giveaway!) for Boy Meets Boy Reviews.
Send in my Maternity Allowance claim form. Ugh. Forms. – Done!
Complete the back piece for at least one of my unfinished quilts. - Nope.
Do a bit more Christmas and/or baby shopping. – I’m getting there, slowly…

This week’s goals:

Write a Christmas short story for the blog, featuring Dan and Robin from Barging In. I asked on Facebook, and that was the pairing most people were keen to catch up on. Quite a surprise, considering it was my first novel!
Do a bit more Christmas and baby shopping.
Get the living room rearranged, ready for the Christmas tree.
Complete the back piece for at least one of my unfinished quilts.

That’s plenty, isn’t it?

How are you all doing? Anyone else turning their mind to Christmas preparations? I’m not usually quite this organised, but I know I need to get things ready earlier this year, just in case the baby comes early!
