I'm a somewhat absentminded, often distracted, writer of queer romance. I'm probably most known for the Being(s) in Love series and the occasional story about witches or firefighters in love. Also known as, "Ah, yes, the one with the dragons."

Absolutely!
Well, actually. I have this headcanon where Charlie decides he wants to ask, but then, being Charlie, gets incredibly anxious about it. Anxious to the point where he stops talking and starts second guessing himself, which in turn makes Will nervous that something is wrong with Charlie. And meanwhile, yup, Charlie needs surgery again, and they say recovery time will be faster, but he remembers the pain and helplessness the first time around and he doesn't want to put Will through that....
Of course Will knows something is happening. But Charlie keeping things from him piss him off (and make him insecure) aaaaand basically I've imagined this scenario about the asking, yet I've never actually imagined their wedding. Charlie would not like fuss. I don't know that Will would either. But definitely they would need some sort of reception, even if it was only a dinner at their house.
Charlie would want Will to have the legal protection and would really, truly enjoy having a ring on his finger. And Will, oh my god, Will would love a chance to make every subject about his *husband*. And I think he would enjoy it because he knows every time he does, Charlie feels a little more secure and safe and happy. Thank you for this question. Sometimes I need to think about those two failboats so I can smile. (less)

But no... not right this second. I *was* going to do the thing hinted at in Clematis next, but I'm kind of maybe leaning toward another book of shorts. Maybe. It's still formulating. In the meantime, I'll have other stuff. Hopefully the thing I've been calling Space Gays should be out this summer. And a little m/m/m thing before then. :)(less)

The short answer is, no. Most everything right now is the same, with only tiny changes + the new covers.

However, when I release the new paperback versions, one of them (SKoM) will have a small addition to the end. Nothing major. But enough that I fe See Full Answer

“Not want you?” His voice was rough. “Everett, I'd lay you down right now in this thin blanket of snow and take you.” Everett's eyes widened, but Alex's mind was racing, the images coming at him too quick for him to hold them back. “The cold air would touch you and then my mouth.” He moved back into Everett's space, and Everett groaned. “My hands. Naked, Everett. I could bite your long limbs and lick the grace from your words and shock the neighbors with what obscenities I'd drive from your lips.”
R. Cooper, A Wealth of Unsaid Words

“When he loved something, he loved it, and that was all there was to it. He also tended to express that devotion the way he thought, in random, fast, seemingly disconnected ways.”
R. Cooper, Checking Out Love

“Of Human Bondage?"

Will said quickly, moving just out of sight for a moment and forcing Charlie to move to the edge of the dining area to see him. He tossed one arch look over his shoulder as he reached up to grab that book, and even knowing it was an act, Charlie felt himself tensing. His eyes fell on the leather cuff at Will's wrist, as they were probably meant to.

"Kinky."

Charlie's throat locked. "I'm not..."

"Into Bette Davis? I know, a lot of people find her scary at first, but after awhile you really start to get into her."

The completely reasonable tone was at odds with the wicked light in the kid's eyes, the way his lips were curved up, how he held his breath when Charlie blinked and frowned, replaying the insane words until they made sense. Until he remembered that Bette Davis was in the film version of that novel, until he could finally take his gaze off that wide leather band.

His face was burning.

"Smartass," he muttered, completely mystified when being called a smartass made Will hop in place, since Will had already made it clear that he had a brain under all that hair and glitter.”
R. Cooper, Play It Again, Charlie
