The DATE is August 11th!

The very long wait is over. Dreamspinner sent me the buy links for Names Can Never Hurt Me this morning. It is up for PRE-ORDER. August 11th is the release date. One month to spread the word. One month to convince people this is their next favorite book. Okay, maybe not that extreme. You may really, really, like it though. Jeff told me "it is an absolutely wonderful book. It’s soooo romantic and packs a good message too.” Tina said she "never wants my name on something she knows would be poorly received" when she beta read and assured me she liked it. I have to rely on these people because as we all know, I always think I am boring. I always doubt my writing ability. These are honest people. Yes, they are friends, but I met them through the M/M community connections. I have to trust this community of tight nit people. SO MANY online are friends of mine through Facebook and then in real life because of the genre and the incredible authors, readers, fans, reviewers, etc. I have met through LGBT fiction. You are great people. I will trust my friends who told me it was a good book I wrote.

Now YOU have to trust them, trust me, and Pre-order, or order the book. :D

Names Can Never Hurt Me is COMING SOON!!!!!!!!!!! And I can not wait. It is very cool that I am scheduled for a blog tour about it and The Blogger Girls happen to have me scheduled for August 11th. YAY!! I will post the rest of my blog tour once I have it figured out and let you all know.

Donna (from a comment on Blogspot) guessed August 12th, and since she is the closest, she can have an eBook Copy of NAMES, OR any other book of mine she wants. Thank you for entering a date. And NO, Kayla, the guess of "NOW!" doesn't count. ;) Donna, comment about what you'd like or e-mail me. I will need you e-mail address anyway to send you a copy.

What if sexuality wasn’t a definable thing and labels merely got in the way?

Nick Jones can’t remember a time when he wasn’t part of the in crowd. Everywhere he goes, he stands out as the best looking guy in the room, and women practically fall into bed with him. Then, after kissing Corey on a dare led to much more and on many occasions, Nick’s “screw anything” reputation escalated, but he didn’t care. 

When Nick meets RC at the restaurant where he works, it throws his whole life out of whack. Overweight, always sweaty, gay, and hairy like a bear; RC lives up to his dubbed nickname “scruffy dude.” He seems Nick’s complete opposite, but Nick can’t get him out of his head.

Because of peer-pressure and his fears about defining his sexuality, Nick struggles with stepping out of his comfort zone and caring about someone different than himself.  If he’s lucky, somewhere between arrogance and ignorance, Nick might find out what it means to be an adult, but if he’s wrong, he could lose everything. 

I guess that is the main thing about this post. RELEASE DATE!!! 

SO HELP ME SPREAD THE WORD. Let your friends know. August 11th is the release date for Names Can Never Hurt Me. Blog tour coming soon. Love you guys!
