I just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! Have fun and stay safe!
I have a new cover up on the coming soon page for A Good Idea! That one comes out in March. It’s a short story, and I absolutely love the characters. No plans to do anything more with them as of now, but they are so cute together!
Oh, and just to let you know: yes, the free stories are missing. And yes, I will be fixing that :). They’ll be back up eventually, I’m just bogged down in edits, trying to finish Nyx, and end of the semester papers right now.
If you’ve looked at any of the pages, you may have noticed a thing or two missing :). I stuck a message on the home page, but the short story is that I had some major problems crop up with my hosting company yesterday. When the dust cleared, I had to move everything elsewhere, which is why things look so off at the moment. I’m working hard to fix everything (and give it a little bit of an update at the same time), but it’s slow going. So, please be patient!
As part of the changes, the site address has changed to www.kmmahoney.com, so be sure to change your bookmarks 🙂 The old address will still redirect for a while.
Be sure to check out the Year End Splash party at the Romance Reviews today! They’re giving away a copy of The Lonely Heart (and some other great stuff, too!). Go to http://www.theromancereviews.com/event.php to check it out and enter.
Shiny new cover art for Cody’s Dragon! I know the release is a little bit away yet, but with the holidays coming up, the time will go really quickly.
I love that dragon :). It’s not quite how I pictured Kirit, but he was too cool to give up! I’m going to try and be online more as the release date gets closer. And, on a related note, I’m making excellent progress on Nyx’s Pixie, the second book in the series. It’s my NaNo book this year and, if everything goes to plan, I should have it completed and ready for submission by the end of the month. I’ll keep you posted!
Every year The Romance Reviews does a big end of the year party, and it starts this Friday! They’ll be giving away prizes all month long, including a copy of my book The Lonely Heart. Be sure to check out their website, and keep an eye out on November 7th in particular!
If you haven’t heard yet, my publisher launched some HUGE changes yesterday. They have a new name (Totally Bound), a new logo (which I absolutely love) and a shiny new website! If you haven’t checked it out yet, you should definitely go take a look. They’ve been working hard, and so far, I’m very impressed with what they’ve done. As an added bonus, The Lonely Heart is discounted at the moment, so if you don’t have a copy, now’s the time to snag one!
So, I have some unexpected news! I was on a roll recently, and I managed to finish a short story I’ve been working on here and there as a break for the fantasy stuff. It’s called A Good Idea, and it will be coming out from Total-E-Bound on March 14th. It was a fun little story, with two guys that just make you say awwww. They’re so cute together, lol. I’ve stuck the blurb below, to give you a quick peek 🙂
Daniel Haversohn is stuck in a rut, and he knows it. The kids are grown and gone, he’s years past being “over the hill”, and the only excitement he gets these days come from the occasional argument with a supplier. Owning a bar keeps him busy enough, but each night he has to go home to a cold and lonely house. Enter Joe Masterson.
Joe has known Daniel for longer than he cares to remember, but the military was his life. Now, after twenty-five years of active service, he’s a free man again. And he hates it. When Joe goes to his favorite bar to drown his sorrows, Daniel sees him moping and offers him a job. Tending bar is definitely a downwards career move, but Joe is just bored enough to take it. The problem? Leaving the army behind must have knocked something loose in his libido, because he can’t stop staring at his boss’ ass. Now Joe has to decide if he can throw aside a lifetime of training for one moment of passion. And, just maybe, something deeper.
I’ve kept meaning to post the good news! Cody has been finished, submitted, and contracted :). It will be coming out January 31st from Total-E-Bound. It’s been a long time coming on this one!
I’m already hard at work on Nyx’s book, and it’s my plan to get it finished in the next few months. I can guarantee that you won’t have to wait as long for book two. I’ve gotten the world established, and I’ve been brainstorming on the other guys as I’ve worked on Cody, so I know where I’m going with the books in a way I didn’t for this one. Plus, as a reader, I absolutely hate to wait for the next book in the series, so I’ll try not to torment you too much, lol.
I’ve also been working on a few other ideas, and I’ve put a few things down on paper for a sequel to Lonely Heart. Tommy has been humming in my head :).
I’ll try to update the website this weekend. My word counts aren’t anywhere close to being current, and I want to get that fixed, along with a few other minor adjustments.
I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
Again, it’s been a while since my last update, so I thought I’d do a quick post to let everybody know I’m still around 🙂 I made the mistake of taking a short term this semester. If you’ve never taken a graduate-level eight week course…don’t. Lol. It’s hell. Tack my independent study on top of that, and it was a wicked few weeks. Now that I’ve finally surfaced from the confusing tangle of Ethical Theory, though, I’ve made huge progress on Cody and the dragons. The independent study has actually helped with that. It’s on the fall of Rome, and I’ve been getting a lot of good ideas :). Last week I was able to get close to 10,000 words done, and nearly half of that in edits, which means I should be able to have the story in to the publisher by the end of this month (as long as Cody cooperates, the stubborn little shit, lol. Kirit is easy, he just does what people tell him to.). I know, it feels like I’ve been working on this story forever. The first book in the series always takes the longest for me, as I work out the world-building and where I’m going with the overall story arc. I’m getting set up nicely for the next books, though; Chaos’ story is completely plotted out and I have a good third of it done already. Too bad he’s not the next in line to be written, lol. That would be Nyx. Once I get the story submitted, I’ll be working on a page for the dragons to stick up on the website, with some bios, background, and other nifty stuff. Tease you a bit with what’s coming :). I’m completely hooked on these characters, and so far this entire world has been so much fun to play around in. I’ll let everyone know when the story is finally shipped off. It shouldn’t be long now!
