The Story Behind the Story: Love Bytes

Hi, everyone!

Love, love, love! my new cover from Harris Channing at Siren Publishing. Love Bytes will be out in February—in time for Valentine's Day. It's a MM vampyre erotic romance.

And here's the story behind the story.

You may have noticed that some of my books have disappeared from Amazon and other third party sellers. This is because I've asked for the rights back to certain titles I had with Silver Publishing. Stories about Silver have been flying around the web—you've probably already seen them. I don't intend to add fuel to the fire. I hate negativity with a passion. In fact, I still have some books with Silver and I support the great authors who are published with them. 

So, what's happening with my books... 

Well, I plan to re-release them with Siren Publishing, starting with Love Bytes.

Love Bytes was originally a short 10,000 word story for a Valentine's Day Anthology. It's now 26,000 words, plus or minus a few. I'm excited to be telling Rhys Wynn's story—how he became infected with the Byte. Of course, one thing led to another and I had to reveal more of Ben's back history as well. Hope you love Rhys and Ben as much as I do.  

Here's the synopsis:  

Hoping to reignite their rocky romance, geeky IT tech, Benjamin Kempler goes out of his comfort zone to buy a sexy Valentine for his boyfriend. But before the big day arrives, he gets dumped by a text message and it looks like he'll be spending another Valentine's Day on his own. Ben decides to make a life changing move. Instead of suffering V-Day depression alone in Los Angeles, Ben will be suffering culture shock in London where he relocates for a new start. 

Sexy Welshman, Rhys Wynn, welcomes Ben into his hostel—and his bed. They share a strong connection, but Ben backs off. He would rather spend Valentine’s Day alone than risk another broken heart. Rhys knows they belong together but his secret prevents him from pursuing the young American. He's a vampyre, who's already lost one soulmate, and he won't risk Ben's life.
Can love conquer all or will history repeat itself?

Happy Reading!
