Coming Soon and other stuff



I'm taking a break from the "Evil Day Job" so I can concentrate on some of the many stories that have been languishing for want of an uninterrupted stretch of time to finish them. 

So over the next few months that I have off, I hope to complete a few stories, including the next segment of As He Watches, which will be my next freebie.  I'm also hoping to finish A Trick of the Light, the sequel to A Thread of Deepest Black.  If time permits, who knows, we might get to hear from Evan and Jamie from Not His Kiss to Take...  I also have another stand-alone contemporary I'm working on that I'm dying to finish (even I want to know what happens next!).  So if you are looking for me to get off my butt and finish something ahead of the others, leave a comment or send me an email at finnmarlowe@yahoo.ca - I can be bribed with flattery, LOL!

Happy Holidays!



Merry Christmas to all!

I just love this shot of the Kamloops, British Columbia area (home, sweet home):

So I've got some stories on the go for 2014 - don't know how many I'll finish, but on my To Do list:

- A Trick of the Light.  This is a story set in the same world as A Thread of Deepest Black

- As He Touches.  Part 2 of As He Watches, so we can all find out what happens after 3 o'clock

- Lullaby of Lies.  Contemporary conspiracy theory with a hint of paranormal/sci-fi

- My YA story set in the same world as A Thread of Deepest Black.  This is the Prince of Thorns' story - no title as yet, but I have lots of ideas for one percolating.

I'm taking a break from my evil day job in the new year, so I'll have more time for writing.  And house cleaning.  And all those other things that never get done.  I will reclaim the garage for my car.  Maybe!

So have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and I wish you the joy of family, friends and a good book.

In Progress


Summer's over.  Already. Sigh.  But that also means more writing time for me!  I make no apologies for being selfish (and the kids were getting bored anyway...) So, here's what I have on the go, and what I hope to accomplish story-wise, and yes, I know I'm slow:

Lullaby of Lies - Spies, lies, Black Ops, conspiracies, false identities and two polar opposites who share the same motto: Trust No One.  Until they have to trust each other in order to survive.  This will be a contemporary m/m with BDSM elements (moderate to lite, depending on your opinion), hurt/comfort and probably some angst, because, you know, Trust No One.  I really hope this one turns out how it plays in my head.  It will probably be long...just sayin'.  The picture below is a clue, wink-wink.

 

A Trick of the Light.  Yes, there is a sequel to A Thread of Deepest Black, it just needs some love, and I love my shifter/werewolf world, so I will find some time to work on this soon.  There is also a prequel, which is Young Adult about the Prince of Thorns (not m/m).  It needs revising and editing and I want to get that done soon as well as it is my fave pet project.  I really wish I could clone myself, LOL.

I am also working on a ghost story, as yet unnamed, and no it's not a friendly ghost, so nobody will be getting warm and fuzzy feelings from it, more like cold and creepy feelings.  I'm not a horror writer, but if it gives readers the willies, so much the better!

And for those who liked my Love Has No Boundaries short, As He Watches, I do plan on writing about whatever the hell happens after 3:00 because I can't stand not knowing myself.  Erik needs to spend some time in that corset, damn it.  And Winter needs to suffer...er, I mean, needs to learn the fine art of wooing.  And spanking...well, spanking Erik, which is actually harder on Winter.  I expect to make this a freebie as well.

And then there's that sequel to Not His Kiss To Take.  Ah, Jamie...how do I love thee and thy snarky nicknames, let me count the ways...

So that's my update - don't know what I'll finish first though, the muse always has a mind of it's own, the darn thing.

Thanks for checking in and happy reading.

Gay Romance Northwest Meet-up and a new Free Read Coming Soon


Do you live in the Pacific Northwest and love M/M Romance stories?  Want to meet some great authors?

On September 14, 2013, Old Growth Northwest is hosting the Gay Romance Northwest Meet-up at the Seattle Central Public Library. This half-day event will feature discussions and panels with Gay Romance authors from around the region, Q&As with the audience, and a post-event happy hour for more mingling and chatting.  

Yup, I'm gonna be there (because any excuse to visit Seattle is a good excuse).  I've been promised, in no particular order:  A visit to the birthplace of Starbucks coffee (their Chai Tea Latte is my fave), Dim Sum in Chinatown, some time by the ocean and a chance to fawn all over my favorite authors, but not too much, because they might kick me out.  I also suspect me and some of my cash will part ways at Pike Place Market...  I have also been informed by my co-attendee that I will be visiting the PBS Store, so I hope they have cool stuff.

If you're interested, want to know who'll be there, or if you're an aspiring writer looking for some tips, here's some links for more information:



Hope to see you there!



And that free read I teased you about...?  Should be out soon (mid-June)  As it was written for a prompt for the Goodreads M/M Group Love Has No Boundaries event, I can't post links here until it's posted there.  Should be available in all formats.  As he Watches is a 24,000 word m/m contemporary short with a little bit of kink (of course). 

Tell you more later!

Hello Gorgeous!

Despite having my desktop computer die on me recently, I've decided to contribute a story to the Love Has No Boundaries Event put on by the M/M Romance Group on Goodreads.  While I wait for Supergeek Kevin to build me my new gaming computer (my other hobby), I'm making due with my sorry, abused laptop.  The kids have stuffed it full of video games (why yes, I do know what Minecraft is, sorry to say...), but I think there's room for a story on it. Maybe.

Here's the picture from my story prompt so you can drool along with me.  It's going to be a m/m contemporary, D/s, Powerplay (but not BDSM), fetish play lite erotic romance.  Sorry, can't tell you more so it'll be a surprise...plus there are rules.  Rules, damn it!  I hate rules, but I'm very excited to get going on this and hope it turns out how I imagine it in my head.  

Wish me luck!

Not His Kiss to Take Now Available

Not His Kiss to Take is finally available.  And yes, it's free!

So if you're looking for a wild ride with a kinky doctor and his mouthy young not-quite-a-sub, here's the Smashwords link:

http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/265643




This is a m/m erotic romance, GFY, May-December, kink/fetish, D/s story written in alternating third person POV and it's novel length.

Hope to have it up on Amazon soon, but they don't like free books, so when I work it out, I'll post the link.  A Kindle version is available on Smashwords, though.

Hope you enjoy!
