“True: Ethan” is now available!

Monday, August 28th, 2017

W00t!

Blurb:

Ethan is a shapeshifter whose life force is rooted in the ability to love. When he is cast aside by his mate of six years, he has one cycle of the moon to find a new one. If he does, he is reborn. If he doesn’t…

He dies.

Brendan isn’t going to let him die.

Pick it up now  at Loose Id for FREE!

Good News and Bad News and More Good News

Wednesday, December 26th, 2012

Okay. Bad news first, yeah?

Bad news: As you’ve probably noticed, Chains wasn’t out on Christmas Eve. But I will do my best to have a January release date.

Good news: Want Me  has been picked up by Loose Id! That means it’ll be out in e-book format soon. How cool is that? The only thing that bums me out is that I had to take down the awesome cover art from the first edition, which had been created for me by the amazing Ulf. On the bright side, I’m looking forward to seeing the new interpretation from Loose Id.

To give the first cover a proper send-off, I’m giving away all the Want Me prints I have left. They include two 4×6 glossies, four 8.5×11 prints on card stock, five 3×5 prints on card stock, and one…well I don’t know what it is exactly. It’s translucent and has a sticker strip on the left-hand side, so I’m guessing it’s meant to be slipped inside notebooks or folders. I don’t even remember buying it. XD

Sooo many Want Me pics


If you’d like one of these prints, send an email to mcbride_rowan@yahoo.com (mcbride_rowan at yahoo dot com) with “I want a Want Me print” in the subject line. Please list the four items above, with the one you want most at the top and so on. First-come-first-serve, but I’ll do my best to send you the print you like most. Don’t forget to include your snail mail address.

And now for some more good news!

One Good Hand/One Good Year received an Honorable Mention from the Rainbow Awards! Sci-fi/fantasy category.

I’m stoked. Are you stoked? I’m totally stoked. 😀

Cover Art – Chains

Chains has a cover and it is niiiiiiice.

Created by the talented Sin. I met the artist first at YaoiCon 2011, then at SanJapan 2012, so it was obviously fate. 🙂

If you’d like to view more of Sin’s work, check out http://xync.deviantart.com/.

One Very, Very Good Year

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

Got my cover today. It’s Spade in a suit. And although that sentence alone is enough to fuel the imagination to wonderful places, here’s the cover in all its glory. Feel free to lick the screen. XD

Anne Cain did the art, and as always it is fantastic.

A Just Perfect Cover

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

There are so many horrible horrible ways to work the title of my latest novella into a sentence, and you will quite possibly see me use every single one of them eventually. For that, I apologize in advance. But there is a bright side. My brand new cover, for instance!

Snazzy, yeah? And you’ll be able to get both the cover and the story from Torquere Press on January 18th, 2012. 🙂

Like P.L. Nunn’s art?

Monday, May 10th, 2010

Katrina Strauss was kind enough to drop me a line letting me know that P.L. Nunn is selling prints of many of the book covers she designed for five dollars each. One Shot is on the list, and in case you forgot what that one looked like—because, ya know, I don’t post it nearly enough ;)—here it is below:

A lot of other great covers there as well, and the site in general is much fun. You can check it all out at http://bishonenworks.com/art_gallery/main/display.php?id=43.

Nice way to kick off the week, yeah?

"One Shot" has a cover!

Friday, August 21st, 2009

The art was done by P.L. Nunn. 🙂

New Book. New Contract. New Cover.

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

Note: This blog was originally published on my MySpace blog, January 15, 2009.



Finished my werewolf novel, and Amber Allure accepted it last week! It’s called Lone, and it’s got a tentative release scheduled for March. W00t!

I love Lone. I finished it ages ago, but I kept tweaking it and tweaking it. Wanted Rafe to be strong and forthright. Wanted Seth to be sweet and just a little bit psychotic (which, surprisingly, is a hard combination to pull off). In the end, I think I achieved everything I wanted, and I think it’s a pretty good story.

Today I also got my cover, and I’m digging the blue angst:

I can’t believe so much has happened and it’s only the middle of January. I hope it’s a sign of how the rest of 2009 is going to go.

If you’d like to learn more about the story, check out my website at: www.RowanMcBride.com.

I think now’s a good as time to any to break in my new happy dance:

Book Cover! Release Date! Happy Dance!

Warm Rush: Chasing Winter has a super cool cover!

I also got a release date! The ebook will be out July 6th, and the print version will be available two weeks afterward, give or take a week.

I’m uber excited. A little too excited to write a fully coherent blog about it, actually. So I’m posting a link to my Cuteness of Doom, Use For Only the Special-est of Special Occasions, Happy Dance.

Happy Dance

If you’d like to learn more about the story, check it out on my site at www.rowanmcbride.com. This is the re-release of my very first novel, so it’s very near and dear to my heart. It’s got muscle growth, it’s got love, it’s got the hottest boy-next-door in the history of boys-next-door. I’m thankful to have had a chance give it a second life.
