New Book. New Contract. New Cover.

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.

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

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.

One Good Hand has a cover *and* a release date!

Wednesday, March 4th, 2009

I just got news that One Good Hand is being re-released from Loose-Id on Christmas Day. I’m getting all kinds of presents lately, because the story also has a brand new cover:

Nice, yeah? My very first yaoi cover, and Anne Cain did a great job with it. Ace and Spade look like they’re having a helluva time.

In One Good Hand, Ace wins a man in a high-stakes poker game. That’s a first for him, even though he’s been gambling big—sometimes winning, sometimes losing—for years. Right now he’s at the top of the food chain in a sea of sharks, and he’s totally unprepared for Spade’s kindness, his playful and seductive touch. I said a while back that these two are one of my favorite pairs. After starting many (and even finishing a few!) stories since OGH’s first publication, I still feel that way. Ace has a perfect poker face and an attitude to match, but in seconds Spade slips in on him, intent on giving his new “master” everything he wants. It’s… {happy shiver} …so much fun to watch.

If you’d like to read more about One Good Hand, you can on my website at http://www.rowanmcbride.com/stories/onegoodhand/. You can also see how they meet by reading the excerpt there. Ace in his element, Spade getting a handle on Ace. They have chemistry from second one, and it never gets old for me, no matter how many times I visit them.  I guess every writer thinks that about their characters, but I’m so absentminded that I actually blank on the names of mine once in a while.  I’d never forget Ace and Spade. 

A reviewer at Coffee Time Romance said that “One Good Hand will definitely make a nice hot read for a cool fall night.” I’m pretty sure it’ll work just as well for those brisk winter nights as well.

Paul’s Dream has a cover!

Wednesday, March 4th, 2009

I’ve just gotten my cover for Paul’s Dream, and it’s perfect. Anne Cain did a spectacular job working the fire and ice theme from the novel into the art, and as soon as I could I plastered it all over my website. The first look anyone besides Anne and I got was at the End of Summer Blowout chat that I did on Labor Day, which goes to show that you never know what’s going to happen at those sort of events. 🙂

Okay, enough rambling! Check out the cover I’ve been raving about:

Mmmm. Can’t wait for October. Paul’s Dream should be available then from Liquid Silver Books.
