Update: Heretic Doms Club

I know the original projected release date for Gray’s book (Spare the Rod, book 3 of the Heretic Doms Club) was June of 2019. I’m sorry to say, that isn’t going to happen. The first draft of Spare the Rod is finished, but the book needs massive revisions. And I do mean massive. Unfortunately, I have another deadline looming (for the new Tucker Springs book), so Spare the Rod has been placed on hold indefinitely. Once I’ve finished this current book, I’ll get back to it. Best case scenario, I’m able to release it around September of this year. Worst case scenario is about June of 2020. Most likely scenario is somewhere in between. I know this isn’t what people want to hear. Believe me, nobody...

Reissue of Release and Return


I’ve decided to re-release the Davlova series ( Release and Return ) under my regular pen name, Marie Sexton. Back when I first released these books, they were vastly different from everything else I’d written. These books are dark, treading a bit into taboo territory. Everything else I’d written was light and fluffy, like Coda. It made sense to use a slightly different pen name. But these days, both my own work and the genre in general have broadened. Darker fiction and taboo topics are more accepted now than they were only a few years ago. It no longer makes much sense to keep these books separate from my other work. So, I’m reissuing both books under my regular name. Also, for the next fe...

Promises 2nd edition now available for preorder!


The new and improved 2nd edition of Promises is now available for preorder! Why a 2nd edition? I’ve had a lot of readers ask what the point of second editions is. In many cases, the 2nd edition exists because the publisher of the first edition went out of business, or because the original contract is (for some reason) no longer valid. But the first edition is still the property of that specific publisher, whether they’re in business or not. So the author can choose to publish a 2nd edition, or to have the book out of print forever. Of course, most of us opt for the former. For almost every one of my books that has a 2nd (or even 3rd) edition, it’s one of those two reasons. BUT, Promises is t...

State of the Author


As usual, I’ve been pretty lax about posting on my blog, so I figured it was time to do a sort of “state of the author” type of update. Heretic Doms Club Book three of the Heretic Doms Club, Spare the Rod, is almost done. This is going to be a long one — probably around 150k by the time I finish. It’s going to need a lot of revisions, and then (obviously) edits. Best case scenario, it’ll be published in early April. Worst case is more like June. As soon as I know for sure, I’ll let you know, believe me. I’ll be shouting it from the internet rooftops. John Solo and I hope to have the audio ready for release around the same time. I have to say, Gray might be the end of my career. I know a lot ...

If You Liked _____, You Might Also Like _____.

🙂
I’ve had several people contact me lately to say, “I enjoyed [x] story. Have you written anything else like that?” So I thought I’d do a quick “If you liked X, you might like Y” post telling you what other books I think might match certain fan favorites. I’ve chosen these recommendations based on similar themes, and/or similar levels of kink (or lack thereof).  Keep in mind, I’m only talking about my own books here, mostly because I don’t read romance, so I have no idea how to match my books up with other books out there in the broader literary world.  Here’s what I cam up with. Enjoy.   ** If you liked Coda (Promises, Strawberries for Dessert, etc.), you might also enjoy: Tucker Springs, Ta...

MM Back to School Short Story Giveaway


I’m participating in the MM Back to School Short Story Giveaway, with over thirty other authors!

But, you’ll be able to download Chapter 5 and the Axe-Wielding Maniac, along with stories from this amazing group of authors. So much yumminess, all in one place!

Terms of Service is available today!


Terms of Service is available now! Haven’t read One Man’s Trash yet? You’re in luck. It’s free on Amazon from now until June 29th. Dr. River McKay moved to Denver with his husband, Terrence, hoping to give their failing marriage a new start. A year later, Terrence is gone and River’s left brokenhearted. Now, he’s decided it’s time to get back in the game. A chance encounter at the hospital introduces him to Phil, a strong-willed pharmacist who isn’t impressed by River’s degree. Phil can’t deny his attraction to River, but dating is out of the question. Phil only does one kind of relationship — domestic servitude, where he gives the orders and his partner obeys. To his surprise, River agrees ...

New Facebook Group


I’ve created a fan group on Facebook. I know, I’m a bit behind the times on this. I confess, Facebook scares the crap out of me. Over the years, it’s been the source of a great deal of anxiety. On the other hand, my writing cave is awfully lonely. I’ve decided to make more of an effort to socialize. So, if you’re interested, you can find the group here . It’ll mostly be dog pictures and random conversations, leaning toward the positive side of life — I’m allergic to drama and sick to death of negativity. There will also be occasional giveaways, including ARCs of all new releases. Hope to see you there! The post New Facebook Group appeared first on Marie Sexton . Original link

Autism Awareness Blog Hop


Autism Fact:  Autism is a developmental disability. It’s a difference in how your brain works. Autistic people can have good mental health, or experience mental health problems, just like anyone else. Welcome to RJ Scott’s Autism Awareness Blog Hop ! Thanks for stopping by. My instructions were simply to write my hopes and dreams for myself, my child, or humanity. I suppose my one big hope for humanity would be that we stop focusing on our differences and start focusing on what unites us. Judging other people and choosing to hate them simply because they are different from us is destructive, no matter what. Whether that person is “different” because they have autism, or because of their reli...

Terms of Service is Finished! (Sort of)


I’m thrilled to announce that I just wrapped up the first draft of Terms of Service . This book nearly killed me. I know, I say that every time, but this time was worse. I made it all the way to 56k late last year before trashing the entire thing and starting over. I’d originally planned to release it in February, but that clearly didn’t happen. Finally, the first draft is complete! Now, that doesn’t mean the book is done. I have a lot of tweaking to do, but that’s fine. I can revise all damn day. But getting to this point — first draft complete, needing only a bit of polish — is a HUGE step for me. I totally want to celebrate. Terms of Service will probably be about 123,000 words by the tim...

Naughty or Nice Audiobook Giveaway!


It’s the holiday season, and I’m giving away FREE AUDIOBOOKS! But like Santa, I’m basing your present on whether you’ve been naughty or nice.   How do you play? Simple! If you think you should get the “nice” prize (an audiobook of Winter Oranges), post something nice in the comments. If you think you need the “naughty” prize (audiobook of One Man’s Trash), post something naughty. There are, however, a few RULES: NICE: I’m looking for stories that give us the warm fuzzies. I w ant things that help restore our faith in humanity. People being nice to other people, or to animals, or… whatever. These don’t have to be personal stories (although they can be).

ONE MAN’S TRASH Available Now


After four tours in Afghanistan, Warren Groves couldn’t settle into civilian life. For the last twelve years, he’s survived by working odd and often illegal jobs for some of Denver’s less fortunate. His personal life is equally unsatisfactory. He can barely remember the last time he had sex, let alone the last time he got to use somebody hard and rough, the way he likes. Fate intervenes when a favor for a friend leads him to a pretty young rentboy named Taylor Reynolds. Taylor’s spent the last few years on his own, working as a hustler, going home with anybody who’ll give him a warm meal and a place to sleep. He enjoys having a bit of force used against him, and he makes Warren an offer he c...

ONE MAN’S TRASH: Opening Excerpt


Today, I thought I’d share an excerpt of the opening chapter of ONE MAN’S TRASH, which comes out in just four days!! (I’m seriously freaking out about this one. I have a feeling you’ll either love it or hate it.) Also, the audiobook, narrated by Joh Solo, is DONE. It should be available for purchase any day now. You can learn more about ONE MAN’S TRASH here . Scroll down past the picture for the full excerpt.           CHAPTER 1   Warren’s scars ached. It made no sense. How could scars earned in a war almost fifteen years earlier suddenly start hurting again just because he was low on sleep? Logical or not, driving home from work at seven o’clock on a Saturday morning, they throbbed in time ...
