Weekly Prompt-Home Sick

Okay, everyone! Here is this week's free read. I hope that you enjoy it because I will not be posting one next week. Why? Because I'm going on vacation! But don't worry. I will be back with a new story on November 11th and we still have the end of the "Sacrifices" blog tour to look forward to. So in the meantime, enjoy the story. And don't forget to read the original prompt and the other responses here.  


Max groaned as a fresh wave of pain sweep through his head. God, he hated being sick. His nose was stuffed up enough that he couldn’t breathe, his throat was scratchy, his stomach was all cramped up. In short, he was miserable.

Max rolled his head listlessly to the side and stared at the digital clock on his bed stand. Just after noon. Normally, Max would just be going on a lunch break from his job as an insurance adjuster. But when he couldn’t get out of bed this morning thanks to the pain in his head, he called out. It was the only sick day he ever used so he wasn’t worried about getting in trouble. Besides, he couldn’t get out of bed, so how helpful would he really be at work.?

A harsh ringing made Max cringe as the pain in his head got worse. Fumbling, he slapped his hand over on the night stand, trying to find his cell phone. Finally, his hand made contract with the smooth metal. As quickly as his aching body would allow, he swiped the touchscreen to accept the call and stop the painful ringing.

“Yeah,” Max groaned.

“Max, baby. What’s wrong? You sound terrible.”

Max couldn’t help but smile at the concern prevalent in his boyfriend’s voice, despite the pain the noise caused.

“Hi, Jacob.”

“Hi to you too. Now what’s wrong?”


“Sick? Are you okay? Did you go to work?”

“No. At home.”

“Are you okay?”

“Will be.”

“Do you want me to come over?”

Max paused as he thought that over. He would give anything to have his boyfriend of three months come over and take care of him. But that wasn’t fair to him. Jacob had his own work to do.

“No. It’s okay. Just go back to work.”

“Oh, okay,” Jacob said, disappointment clear in his voice. “Well, I called to ask if you wanted to go out tonight, but I guess not. Maybe I’ll come over after work?”

“Sure, if you want.”

“Okay. I’ll see you later.”

“Okay. Love you.”

“I love you too, Max. I’ll see you soon.”

“Okay. Bye.”

Max ended the call and tossed the phone in the general direction of the bed stand. Sleep. Sleep sounded good. Max closed his eyes and quickly fell into dreamland.

Max awoke a little later feeling as horrible as he did a little while ago. But something was different. There was a soft light coming from the corner of the room, something that was not present when he went to sleep. Looking over, Max saw a brand-new box of tissues and a bottle of water on the night stand. Also new. And what was that smell?

“Oh, good. You’re up.”

“Jacob,” Max croaked as his boyfriend walked into the room. Had he been asleep for six hours? Checking the clock, he saw he was only asleep for about two hours.

“What are you doing here?”

Jacob walked over to the bed with a small smile on his lips, his blue eyes shining in the low light. He sits his small form on the bed and leans over to give me a gentle kiss on the cheek.

“Please, Max. Like I wouldn’t come. You sounded horrible on the phone. I had to come and check on you.”

“But what about your work?”

“Meh. I just took a half-day off. We were slow, anyway.”

“You shouldn’t have done that.”

“Max, please. You’re my boyfriend. What kind of person would I be if I didn’t take care of you when you’re sick?”

“But you shouldn’t have to!”

“I don’t. I want to.”


“Yes. Now I came in here to wake you up. I made you some chicken noodle soup. So why don’t you come out to the living room and you can eat your soup. And then I’m going to hold you while we watch movies. It’ll be fun.”

“Jacob. I feel like death.”

“I know. That’s why I’m here. I’m going to make you all better.”



A slow smile spread over Max’s face for the first time that day. Spending an afternoon cuddling with Jacob, being catered to. That could even be enjoyable. Now he just had to summon the energy to stand up.

Weekly Prompt-Football

Hello everyone! Here is this week's free read. Brynn did not put up a prompt this week so I came up with one all on my own. Enjoy!



Jake winced as his favorite receiver got hit hard on the side, getting pushed out of bounds about thirty yards from the end zone. Still, it was a good catch-and-run. They should be able to punch it in from here. Which was good since they really had to score a touchdown. The score was 35 to 31 and his team was down. And with only ninety seconds left, now was the time.


Jake barely looked up as the men lined up for the next play, the high-definition television making a clear enough picture for Jake to check who was on the field for the offense.



“I need to talk to you.”

“Uh hun,” Jake muttered as the ball was snapped. His breath caught as the line started to break down around his quarterback, but smiled as the ball was sent spiraling through the air. Caught! The receiver got about fifteen yards before getting hit out of bounds. Still, it was a good play.


No longer distracted by the play and having forty seconds until the next one, Jake looked up at his boyfriend. Gavin was standing by the couch with a worried look on his face. There was a hint of anger in his green eyes, but Jake wasn’t surprised to see that. Gavin never understood his love for football.

“Need something, hon? Cause the game is on.”

Gavin opened his mouth to say something before snapping his jaw and shaking his head. “Just forget it,” he muttered as he walked away.

Shrugging, Jake turned back to the game. But somehow, he just couldn’t focus anymore. Gavin looked really upset before, so unlike his happy-go-lucky man. And Gavin knew better than to talk to Jake during one of his games. It must have been pretty important for him to disturb him.

Jake looked back at the screen and sighed. His team had moved forward another five yards and Jake had no idea how. He couldn’t focus, seeing Gavin’s worried face in his mind’s eye.

Shaking his head, Jake got up from his favorite recliner and walked away from the game, something he never thought he could do. Football was his only real hobby. He spent hours studying his team, analyzing opponents and, of course, watching the game. But it just didn’t seem important right now.

Jake’s heart dropped as he heard the sounds of muffled cries as he approached the bedroom he shared with Gavin. Peeking his head around the corner, Jake’s heart broke as he saw Gavin face-down on their bed crying for all it was worth.


His boyfriend turned over and quickly rubbed at his eyes. “I’m okay. Go back to your game.”

Jake knew his man’s broken words were a lie. He was anything but okay. And it made Jake feel more of a jerk than ever.

“Gavin,” Jake called again as he walked farther in the room, sitting next to him on their bed. “What’s wrong?”

“I’m okay. Go back to your game.”

“Not until you tell me what’s wrong,” Jake comforted, placing a gentle hand on his back.

Gavin didn’t say anything. Jake got comfortable on the bed and started to rub soothing circles on his man’s back. He knew that eventually Gavin would start to speak.

It took a little longer than Jake expected, but soon Gavin turned his head out of the pillow and started to talk.

“I got a phone call. My Aunt Mary is in the hospital. They aren’t sure she’s going to make it.”

Jake’s guilt level ratcheted up at Gavin’s teary confession. Damn, he was such an ass. Gavin lived three thousand miles away from his Californian family. He couldn’t just get in the car and see his aunt in a few minutes. He would have to sit and wait by the phone for updates. And knowing how close Gavin was to his entire family, he knew how hard that would be for him.  

“Aw, baby. I’m so sorry. What can I do?”

“Can we just sit here?”

Jake nodded and resumed his back rub.

It took a long time for Gavin to calm down, but he did. Through it all, Jake stayed and comforted him. Eventually, they ended up wrapped in a tight cuddle, with Gavin lying on Jake’s chest.

“Thank you, Jake,” Gavin said as the sun fell.

“You don’t have to thank me. I’m always here for you.”

“Still…I’m sorry I had to pull you away from your game. Did your team win?”

Jake paused. He hadn’t even thought about the game since he came in here. Somehow it didn’t matter as much right now. Sure, he cared about his football. It was a huge part of his life. But Gavin had Jake wrapped around his finger. Anything Gavin needed and he would be there, football or not.

“You know, I have no idea,” Jake replied with a small smile.

“Oh, Jake. I’m sorry. Why don’t you go check?”

“Nah. I’m quite comfortable here with you.”


Jake smiled wider as he leaned down to kiss Gavin. “Absolutely.”

“Thank you.”

Jake kissed Gavin again. Yeah, football may be a part of his life, but Gavin was his whole world. And nothing could ever distract Jake from that.

A Productive Weekend of Writing

Hello everyone!
     Once again I've been neglecting to update you on my writing in favor of telling you all about my blog tour. However, today I hit a major breakthrough that I am very excited to tell everyone about. I have just finished the first draft in my YA M/M Science Fiction story Journey to Xibalta! I am very happy with this story and should only need minor changes before going to the publisher from consideration. My plan is to work on some more blog posts and then go back to this story on Tuesday or Wednesday. I'm hoping to have it in to the publisher in the next few weeks. So keep your fingers crossed.
    I'm still waiting to hear back about My World, My Game, My Love but hopefully, I will know in a week or two.
   So things are going really well in the world of writing. Don't forget to check back here for information on my writing and the latest on my blog tour for "The Sacrifices We Make".
    Happy Friday everyone!

Weekly Prompt-Doubt

Here's my new free read. Check out the original prompt and the other responses here.

Fearing an End

Gene sighed as he walked into the bedroom of their house. This was it. The last room in the house he had to check. And Emmitt wasn’t here. He was supposed to be home. But he wasn’t.

He rubbed his free hand over his eyes. Gene shouldn’t have been surprised. After all, this wasn’t the first time in the last two months Emmitt wasn’t home when he should have been. If tonight was like the last few times, Emmitt would walk through the door in about an hour with a smile on his face and a take-out dinner bag in his hand. (Gene was useless in the kitchen, so Emmitt was always responsible for dinner.)

Emmitt always had a relatively good excuse for being late from work. A last minute dental emergency, a meeting with a vendor that he forgot to mention, traffic. And at first, Gene didn’t question anything. After all, everyone hits traffic every once in a while.

But lately, the excuses had become flimsier and Gene started to doubt. Doubt that Emmitt was being truthful. But that wasn’t even the worst part. No, the worst part was what Gene suspected Emmitt was doing.


Gene couldn’t believe he was even thinking about that. They had been together for five years. They bought this house together. Built a life together. Gene loved Emmitt with all his heart. He didn’t want to live without him.

But as Gene stared at the pictures on their bureau, he knew he couldn’t deny it for any longer. Looking at Emmitt’s smiling face from their last vacation in California was what really gave him pause. Emmitt never smiled at Gene like that anymore. He didn’t touch him or hold him without being asked. And even then it was a struggle. In fact, the only time Emmitt willingly smiled was when he was late coming home from work.

And then there was all of the secrecy. Emmitt used to be an open book, telling him everyone who called and e-mailed him. Almost to an obnoxious degree. But now Gene didn’t know anyone who Emmitt talked to. He password-protected his laptop and cell phone. They didn’t talk anymore.

Breaking his gaze on the picture, Gene finished getting changed, throwing a pair of grey sweatpants over his thin hips and worn orange T-shirt over his head. It wasn’t normally what he wore. He usually only wore sweatpants in he was sick. But he needed a little extra comfort right now.

Gene needed to confront Emmitt. He knew that. But it wasn’t that easy. Was he ready to give up everything that he had built with Emmitt for the last five years? Not really. But he couldn’t go on living like this. He had to know the truth. And Emmitt was going to give it to him.

“Gene. I’m home.”

           Gene brushed the stray tear that had fallen down his cheek in his reflection and headed for the door. No more doubt. It was time to learn the truth. No matter how much it hurt him.

First Week Reactions

We are now first week into my blog tour and the response has been AMAZING! At this point I am still in the Top 10 for Bestsellers in the YA genre on ARe and the book is starting to climb on other charts as well. I am starting to get more reviews, both from professional reviewers and average readers. And so far the responses have been quite positive. I'm so glad that people are enjoying the book and hope that more people will feel the same.

On a more personal level, I'm still in a little bit of shock. It seems so strange that people all over the world have read my book. But I'm slowly coming around to the idea. And a lot of that has to do with all of the authors, reviewers and readers who have been so supportive. So thank you!

Weekly Prompt-First Day of Fall

Hi everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying the blog tour and is ready for another great week. To help kick us off, here is a brand-new free read. Check out the original prompt at the other responses here. Enjoy!

Trapped in a Sea of Corn

They were lost. Hopelessly, irrevocably lost. They had been trapped for two hours and weren’t much closer to getting out then when they started.

“Sam? Let’s go this way.”

Samuel Matthews could only sigh as his boyfriend, Artie Junis waved him down yet another row of brown, dying corn.

It sounded like a great idea at the time. It was the first day of fall and Artie wanted to spend it outdoors doing something regarding the new season. And once he had seen the advertisement in the free paper about a two acre corn maze, Artie had been hooked. Nothing Sam could have said or done would have changed his mind. Not that he would try anyway. Sam loved to make his boyfriend happy. Seeing the little dimples in his cheeks were enough to make Sam agree to almost anything. But after walking through the maze for what seemed like an eternity, Sam had to admit that his limits were being tested.

But still Sam wasn’t ready to admit to his boyfriend that he wasn’t having a good time. So he gave his man a little smile and followed him down yet another path. Sam tried to focus on the positives. It was lovely day. He was with his Artie. He didn’t have to work today. All good things. If only he could escape the maze…

“Sam! Here it is!”

Sam let out a little chuckle as he watched his boyfriend run for the station. The goal of the maze was to find nine stations set up all around the maze. Each stop had a hole punch you could use to punch the card given out at the gate. Technically, you were supposed to get all the punches before trying to find the exit.

“Sam,” Artie whined. “Come over here and punch your card.”

He walked over to Artie and gave him a little kiss. No matter how annoying it was walking around a field for two hours, he couldn’t deny being amused at the pure joy radiating off his boyfriend. Artie was like a little kid on Christmas, so excited to see what was just out of sight. Sam might not have understood why Artie wanted to do this, but it was clear he was having fun by the way he was bouncing on the balls of his feet.

 Once their cards were punched, Artie took Sam’s hand and led them back from where they came from.

“Are you okay, babe,” Sam asked quietly. “You’ve been quiet.”

“Yeah, babe,” Sam comforted, trying to force a smile on his face. “I’m fine.”

“But you’re not enjoying this.”

Sam looked over in shock, meeting the baby blue eyes of his love. “What makes you think that?”

“Because it’s true.”

Sam sighed at the blunt tone of his love. “Artie, I’m sorry. I know that you’re having a good time. I was too. I guess I’m just tired of walking around in circles.”

“It’s okay. I know this really isn’t your thing.”

Artie was right there. Sam was much more of an indoor person, preferring video games to spending time in sunlight with all of the bugs.

“Baby,” Sam sighed. “I’m sorry. I know this is something that you really wanted to do.”

“And you came with me, even though it’s not something you like to do. That’s enough for me. I just want to make sure that you’re not completely miserable.”

“With you? Never.”

Sam leaned over and gave Artie a soft kiss on the lips, not caring if anyone saw.

“Good,” Artie sighed as they broke the kiss. “Then why don’t we go get some apple cider? My treat.”

“But don’t you want to find all the stations?”

“Baby, check your card. We already did. So let’s get out of here and hit up the refreshment stand.”

Sam looked down in shock. Artie was right! They were done.

“Okay,” Sam said, a grin slowly creeping onto his face. “You’re on.”

“Cool. Just one problem.”

“What’s that?”

“How do we get out of here?”

Thursday, October 3, 2013



Adam Jameson has always felt like an outsider in his own home, where his parents’ constant efforts to instill religious fervor have instead filled him with fear. Most of the time, he just wants to stay out of everybody’s way.  But when Adam is forced to volunteer at a homeless shelter his senior year in high school, everything changes. He’s introduced to people who care about more than religion and, as a result, he starts to come out of his shell. For the first time in his life, Adam finds people that he wants to be around.
Mickey Stafford lives on the streets, a teen kicked out by his parents for being gay. He comes to the shelter for food and medical care, and after they literally run into each other, the two boys strike up a friendship. As Mickey introduces his new friend to the world he lives in, Adam starts to question everything: his parents, their religion, even his own beliefs . Once Mickey kisses him, Adam starts soul-searching and finds his heart, which is full of love for Mickey. But these two young men will have their love put to the test, as they face a future of uncertainty and fear.

Here it is! 
Tomorrow my debut novel "The Sacrifices We Make" will be released by Harmony Ink Press and today the corresponding Blog Tour begins!

I've known that I was going to be a published author for awhile now and yet, it still doesn't seem real. In the last few weeks, I have gone though multiple edits for my book, worked on the blurb, my bio and even talked about the cover. I've met wonderful people in the course of planning my blog tour and getting my name out in the world of social media. I have even gotten reviewed! And yet, I still can't seem to fathom this. It seems like a crazy dream I am about to wake up from. But regardless of how I feel about the release, it is almost here. Ready or not!

So I think that in this first post, I have to thank everyone who helped make this possible. First to Elizabeth and Nessa over at Dreamspinner and Harmony Ink, I owe the two of you so much. You gave me a chance to become a published author and that it something that I can never repay. I only hope I will be able to prove that you were right by taking a chance on me. Next to all of the people at DSP/Harmony Ink who helped me along each step of the process. I know that I have a lot to learn about being a published author and I appreciate everyone's help. (Especially the editors, who had to put up with my lack of care when it comes to commas.) Oh, and a special shout-out to Aaron who designed my cover. I know that I had a lot of weird requests and you made every single one happen. So thank you.

Outside of the publisher, I want to thank all of the authors who helped make me feel so welcome. (Especially Cody Kennedy and he knows why.) I learned a lot from all of you and I have enjoyed meeting and talking with everyone. And, of course, a special thank you to everyone who is hosting me over the course of the blog tour.

(Wow. So many people to thank. No wonder Oscar winners always sound so rushed.)

And, finally, I have to thank the most important group of people. The READERS! The book hasn't even been released yet and I'm already completely floored by the response! "The Sacrifices We Make" is already a bestseller for its genre on All Romance ebooks. That's right! If you go on the site you will see a little silver star next to the book. I can't tell you how excited I was when I saw that. Right now the book is in the Top 40 for its genre and has been for over a week! (I checked today and found out I was 19 out of 1846!) I can't wait to see what happens when the book is actually released.

So to thank everyone I want to offer a few ebook giveaways through the course of the tour. There will be four giveaways over the next five weeks, with one new giveaway every week. The last three giveaways will be on other sites. (The Novel Approach on the 16th and Joyfully Jay on the 30th.) But the first two will be right here! The first will run from right now (October 2) until October 8th at 11:59 PM EST. The second will run from October 9th at 12:00 AM EST until October 15 at 11:59 PM EST. How do you enter? Simple. Just leave a comment under the giveaway post that is directly underneath this. You can also find the link using the giveaway tab on the side menu. Remember to check that giveaway page all throughout the tour for information and links to all of the giveaways.

So thank you again to everyone who helped make this possible. I hope that everyone enjoys the tour and, more importantly, enjoys "The Sacrifices We Make." Please feel free to contact me to let me know what you thought of the book. If you don't know how, all of the information can be found using the link on the side menu. Thank you everyone!



So "The Sacrifices We Make" is releasing tomorrow. And with book releases come...


This is Giveaway #1 for "The Sacrifices We Make" Blog Tour, which you can enter for a free ebook copy of "The Sacrifices we Make". It will be open from October 2, 2013 at 12:01 AM EST until October 8, 2013 at 11:59 PM EST.
