May I Tweak Your...Ear?


Okay so I’ve got a question...

Question Mark by Bushlemon
I’m finishing my antho short story this weekend...oh yeah, at least 6k coherent (that darn word just has to be a part of this conversation...lol) words in less than two days...*heads desk* Certain lovelies in my life think I can do this...I think I’ve got them all fooled, but dude, I’m gonna give it a go...lmao

Wait...I had a reason behind this post...darn those squirrels for getting in my vision...

Oh yeah...question.

And yes this does have to do with the story I’m finishing right now...as you are reading this...I am writing it...at this very moment...oh and that moment too...hehe

Um...sorry...question:

What are your thoughts on a short story with an open for interpretation ending?


Yep—I already have the ending planned...but I was wondering what readers would think about it...now I can’t tell you the ending...but I can ask you this question and get some ideas...if you don’t mind answering it...I’m not saying things won’t be concluded in the story—they will...but some things...well...

Okay...since I shouldn’t be writing a blog post right now...I should be writing on the short story in question...I’ll wrap this up—but I look forward to your thoughts, you can leave them here in comments if you don’t mind...or you can email me *big smiles* at havan<dot>fellows<at>ymail<dot>com (darn those spammers and squirrels...lol)


And thank you *hugs*

Dreaming Up To a Friday...



Good Friday one and all! *big smiles* Yes...yes I am happy to have the weekend ahead of me, so I can finish my antho piece hopefully before the Monday deadline...wouldn’t that be fun? hehe

Now...last night I had the most interesting dream—it involved an Egyptian Prince, zombies and football. hmmmmmmm...do I think this will ever make it into a book...um...probably not, but it was a very interesting and kinda disturbing dream—I’m just lucky I’m good with that...lmao

Well you all have a splendid Friday—I plan on being in my own little la-la world at the EDJ...it makes the day go by faster and I really like imaging my bossman in thigh highs, he’s a runner so he’s got the gams for them *winks* and it gives me something hot to daydream about...*waggles brows*

Until next time remember...
Pleasure's a sin, and sometimes sin's a pleasure. ~Lord Byron


*hugs and smooches*

Freebie Read...Honey House


A cute little birdie told me that this amazing M/F paranormal suspense/mystery is FREE at Amazon from now until April 1st...

Don’t change the name...the House won’t like it...

Former con artist Katherine "KC" Carmichael inherits the Honey House, a Bed and Breakfast located in the tiny town of Juniper Springs, AZ, a hot bed of the paranormal tourism industry. It doesn't take her long to discover that both the town and the House are keeping secrets. The town entices thrill-seekers with special photo-safaris at "The Way They Were" Ranch, to take advantage of the rumors that werewolves have been spotted in the area.

KC realizes something doesn’t add up when the local sheriff throws her in jail for breaking the town’s full moon curfew. She soon discovers werewolves and witches are real, and she wonders what other fairy tales might be waiting to come to life. With multiple murders and men to distract her, KC needs to discover her own hidden magick in order to survive.

Freebie Read...Harlan's Ryde


Free at Amazon from now until Saturday, March 30th...

The 1st of the Synchronous Seductions Series...never before offered as a free read...snag a copy today! :)

Ryder made a mistake Harlan can't forgive. Will Ryder cross a line no man should cross to obtain a second chance?

Ryder Halloway made a life changing decision about his relationship with Harlan when he was young and stupid. Thanks to one rash moment, he lost it all. He lost the only man he would ever love, his drive to even try to finish college and his zest for life.

Seven years later finds him in front of Harlan's house preparing to take back what he lost with a vengeance. He's prepared to use all the tricks in his arsenal to plow through every wall, protest and excuse Harlan might come up with.

Of course, he never expected Harlan to put him in the hospital...

Harlan Mychels had his heart broken in college by the popular Ryder. He learned his lesson about love and since then hasn't allowed anyone even remotely close to his heart. Then one morning he turns and sees the one person able to tear his walls down and destroy what is left of it.

He uses every defensive tactic in his possession to keep Ryder at arm's length, but Ryder is persistent. Harlan's not sure if he can stay safe from heartache...and he starts wondering what the real heartache is – letting Ryder in again...or letting him go for good.

**This book was previously published in the Story Orgy anthology Word Play**

Don't Miss This...Hell Cop



Don't Miss This...This is a great and fun way to give karma a kiss...here’s what it’s all about...Post a link with a snippet of a book, blog, new release, award...anything, as long as it is NOT ABOUT YOU. Include anything about the book: why you liked it, favorite character, great cover...whatever you want.

This week I’m sharing one of my favorite anthologies...this book is just amazing—I could babble about it until I’m red in the face...but instead I’ll share the blurbs with you...trust me, you don’t want to miss this! *winks*


Welcome to Parmas City, where demons and sorcerers live among ordinary people and a few tough Hell Cops protect them all.


Next of Kin by Astrid Amara
Jay Yervant is a Hell Cop so powerful that his bare skin incinerates anyone he contacts. Isolated, he is tortured by desire, until he meets Brian, a sensual young man who touches him with impunity. But Jay’s burgeoning hope is threatened when a malevolent sorcerer unleashes a host of demonic assassins against Brian. Keeping his lover may cost Jay his life.


Red Sands by Nicole Kimberling
Anthropologist Michael Gold’s got problems. His apartment’s been ransacked, his dad’s missing, and he’s been framed for murder. As a half-demon he expects trouble from the city’s Hell Cops. Instead, he gets Argent, a man with intimate knowledge of Michael and whom Michael can’t penetrate with his psychic powers. Does Argent want to clear him or expose him?


Touching Sparks by Ginn Hale
When photojournalist James Sparks discovers an underworld of sorcery, blood sports and demonic drug traffic, he turns to Detective Ben Moran, a hard-bodied Hell Cop who’s touch sends James’ pulse racing. But when James uncovers evidence of police corruption he realizes that Moran may be in as much danger as he is.



Enjoy <3

Hello Monday...may I go back to sleep now?



It’s Monday...I’ve got coffee in my hand and am ready to take on the world...or at least a five mile radius from where I’m sitting...um, if I don’t fall asleep first.

Just wishing all of you a better Monday than I know I’m gonna have (co-worker on vacay, which means more work for me...yay).

But when I get home—I get to hit the keys hard because I got almost 2k words written last night and with a little bit of help, got over a bump in the road I was dealing with.

Want a little peek of the fun I had last night? *looks both ways and leans in close* Okay...but just a little snippet...no telling on me this time either...

     “Where is he? He said yes, right? You were there, he did say yes.”
     “Right after he called you a moron, dimwit, fucker, brainless twerp, twit with no morals, asshat and brainless twerp...yes he did say yes.” Harry ticked each insult off on his fingers.
     “You said brainless twerp twice.” He sneered at his best friend.
     “So did he, and it’s my favorite. I think it epitomizes you nicely.”

Lots of smiles today—cuz when you smile you can’t help but be just a bit happier, a bit more cheerful...*winks*

Because He's Lee Brazil & You're You...


Sooooo...I'm hanging with one of my favorite people...the multi-talented and quite hunky hunky Lee Brazil,http://leebrazilauthor.blogspot.com/ author of the best selling series Truth or Dare among other things.

I hunted Lee down to come answer three questions (yep...only three...but wait until you read these questions before you judge me...hehe).

Now why did I stalk Lee to answer only three questions? Because Lee is doing something freaking AWESOME for readers...Because You're You is on sale at Amazon for FREE!!! I know *eyes bug out* at that price I want multiples! Wait...that just may be in the book...hehe

Now, I've read Because You're You multiple times (oh be quiet...we all know I use that word as often as possible...*sticks out tongue*)...and every time I do I always come away with these three questions that I'd love to have the nerve to ask the author...but I'm shy...*bats lashes and blushes*...oh just go with it...jeez.

So hello Lee, how are you doing? And no—that isn't one of the questions...but yes please answer it...lol

I'm fine, swilling coffee and listening to some Petty, just getting mellow.

That's good...you look all kinds of good and yummy, by the way *licks lips*
So in Because You're You...we meet Devyn, who is tattooed and pierced and...and...*dabs at sweat forming on brow*...and a bad boy. Tell me Lee, do you like bad boys? Are you a bad boy?

I've a great deal of fondness for bad boys, but no. I'm more of a quiet type.

Now it's no secret that you have a high opinion of kissing. You happen to write some of the best kisses I've ever read—so filled with emotion and heat that sometimes I feel like that kiss was the *fans face* oh-so-yummy scene...hehe...so tell us what is your favorite physical part of a kiss? Your favorite emotional part of a kiss? How do you make your kiss scenes so darn heat inflamed? I mean come on, you can't get this type of heat from a Tabasco bottle!

The very first touch of tongue to lip, the teasing…the way a kiss slowly builds, these are a few of my favorite things. I try to put what each kiss means onto the page, is it simple passion? No. There is nothing as complicated as a simple kiss.

There are two words that can describe one of Sully's best qualities (because he definitely has more than one best...hehe) Oral Fixation...*closes eyes and shivers* uh uh uh...there is no escaping this question...you knew it was...coming. *raises eyebrow and smirks* So, tell us your thoughts about oral fixations...do you share any with Sully?

*frowns* Sully's oral fixation probably stems from some sort of insecurity left-over form childhood. For myself, I'd have to admit that yes, I think that goes right along with kissing.

*spreads arms and bows to guests* And there you have it...three simple questions answered by the brilliant and handsome Lee Brazil...

So head on over and get this bad boy while it is free...even if you don't have a kindle you can still snag it and read it off of your computer—there is no reason for you not to be enjoying Lee Brazil's talents right now! *winks*

Wicked Seconds...

Wick never got tired of being right, he just wished he was wrong once in a while.

Have you met Wick Templeton yet?
Doesn't he sound like a peach?

Let me tell you a few things about him:
 He doesn't play by the rules, not even his own.
He doesn't lie and play games, not without reason.
He doesn't care about others, not that he'll admit.
He does push the lines when someone's in need.
He does get results for those who can't.
He does make sure the good guy finishes first.

 If you haven't met him, here's your chance.
*big smiles*

His 2nd book in the Pulp Friction line...
Wicked Bindings
...is coming out on Friday

so I'm offering his 1st book...
Wicked Solutions
...at 1/2 off @ All Romance e-books and Barnes & Noble until March 16th, Saturday night.

This is the perfect opportunity for you to get to know Wick...because no matter how much of an ass he is—and yeah, he really is—you can't deny he gets things done.

 Just remember...
Sometimes the only way for justice to prevail is to get a little Wicked...

Don't Miss This...Handyman


Sooooooooooooo...Sunday again, which means I get to participate in the karma ring...Don't Miss This. I freaking love doing these because it's great to get away from self-promotion once in a while and enjoy other people's hard works of art. *winks* I mean after all...every good author is a great reader...um...in my opinion...hehe


The rules for Don't Miss This are simple: post a link with a snippet of a book, blog, new release, award...frankly anything really—as long as it is NOT ABOUT YOU. Include whatever you liked in your post: why you liked it, favorite character, great cover...anything and everything goes. *winks* Can you tell we aren't big on major rules?

Then on Facebook you tag at least three others to share their Don't Miss This posts...and you post on your wall and the Don't Miss This wall also! *big smiles*

Today I'm paying homage to an old favorite...so let's to hitch a ride on the time machine and throw me back to one of the first M/M novels I read and absolutely adored! I love lots of books for many different reasons...but something about a first timer, a generation gap and men who are strong of mind and body...oh boy—yep that hits the mark. I freaking love Claire Thompson and am positive she will pop up on my Don't Miss This posts frequently...she just writes characters that I fall in love with...Jack is amazing in this, you feel for him and instantly want to really get to know him *winks* and Will...well he took longer to break through my shields—but he did and by the end I was *sighs* yeah...If you try this one out don't forget to hunt down her follow-up—Be My Handyman—it is just a quickie nibble (nothing wrong with that...hehe) that reminds you why you loved these boys in the first place!

Enjoy <3

A nibble of Wick for Friday...


Hooray for Friday! *shakes it to the west and bumps it to the east*

So this weekend I'm a busy busy little bee...lots of RL (real life) crap getting tossed into the mix...silly silly RL...don't you know weekends are meant for my writing? *sticks out tongue*

And on the writing front...trying to finish up Wicked Bindings (Pulp Friction Wicked Solutions #2—how's that for a mouthful...and no comment lmao) in time for the 15th so it can be live and waiting for you...and yes...I already have a few fave lines from this bad boy...I'll share one of them with you *winks*

Wick never got tired of being right, he just wished he was wrong once in a while.

Wick definitely is a challenge for me to write...his 'stories' aren't the normal—and they aren't romance, even if there is a high amount of sexual tension between him and Ned...*sighs*

But you know...Wick is a guilty pleasure for me...I can toss down the gloves and just let it all come out—oh my, maybe I should be wary of how I phrase that in the company I keep...lmao. Seriously though, these characters have the potential to be great and memorable...and eventually...I can hint...that maybe...the possibility is there that...perchance there will be an ending that might have 'happy' in the labeling...*winks*

But nothing is written in stone...hehe

So for now I bid you adieu with a wink and a sip of coffee...and once again, shake that money maker...it's Friday!!!

Don't Miss This...Something Different


Sooooooooo...I was tagged in a Don't Miss This karma ring...I love doing these on Sunday's because it is great to get away from the self-promotion once in a while and enjoy other people's hard works of art *winks*


The rules for Don't Miss This are simple:  post a link with a snippet of a book, blog, new release, award...really anything—as long as it is NOT ABOUT YOU. Include whatever you like in your post: why you liked it, favorite character, great cover...anything and everything goes...*winks* can you tell we aren't big on major rules? hehe

Then on facebook you tag at least three other people to share their Don't Miss This posts...and you post on your wall and the Don't Miss This wall *big smiles*

So today I chose Something Different...This book takes a subject I'm usually squeamish about and deals with it in a way that worked for me. To say Something Different has great re-read value is putting it mildly since I've read it at least 4-5 times now...lol

I highly recommend Something Different if you are looking for an M/M read that will tear at your heart and make you smile...and leave you totally fulfilled. *big smiles*

 ENJOY <3

Oh and by the way...I actually did a virgin interview with S.A. Reid about Something Different...you should soooooooooo take a peek *winks* hehe

Conversations with a Naughty Mind...(well kinda lol)

There are times in my life that I'm told I tend to morph the simplest, most innocent things into naughty dirty thoughts...I personally believe that I don't do that—I'd like to think that everyone does that *big smiles*

Case in point...a conversation that happened yesterday morning between me and two co-workers...

Okay let me set this up for you - I'm talking to the Nicey & Cutie of the office, and we get into talking about crazy speeders on the turnpike--not people going 10 or so miles over the limit *blushes and whistles*, but people going 30 or so over in bigger vehicles. So here is how the conversation went:


Nicey: Seriously, the other day a semi was riding my ass, pushing me along and I was pissed. I mean, if I had gotten a blow-out that truck would have killed me, my dog and my wife...

Me: You listed your dog first?

Nicey: Well, he's in the crate in the back of my truck, he'd die first.
**side note, the crate is actually anchored in his truck bed, very safe and approved for his lab :)**

Cutie: You actually listed you first...

Me: Yeah, then your dog...

Nicey: Well, I love my dog...

Cutie: I'm calling your wife...

Nicey: Seriously, what else will let you spank their ass then as soon as you're done they turn around and lick you? How can you not love your dog?

Me: *opens my mouth to respond*

Cutie: Havan, do NOT say what you are thinking...

Me: *closes my mouth and gets back to work*

Now come on...I know I'm not the only one to think...um...well...yeah back to work *blushes and heads desk giggling*
