My friends, we will Live & Love, Defiantly

I, for one, have been thrown for a loop — actually, I take that back; that’s not enough. I feel like a great many of us have been thrown under a speeding train. I am so tempted, so very very tempted, to stoop to the level of this election, of the people who have elected […]

how crying over stained glass became the best part of my character

This is the Mucha window in St Vitus Cathedral in Prague Castle — a huge cathedral right in the middle of this amazing & stunning castle in Prague. I had the very good fortune to visit it while I was writing Daniel & Erik’s Super Fab Ultimate Wedding Checklist, and this particular window is the […]

Book tours, happily ever after for all, and how to keep two puppies from fighting

Now, I’ve got several things to talk about the most exciting of which is: MY BOOK WILL BE RELEASED INTO THE WILD TOMORROW!!! I will be on this-here virtual book tours, (see above image) and stopping at these-here very fine blogs and I’m really excited to be able to chat with people about my book. […]

My book comes out on June 23rd!

Did I mention I’ve got a book coming out in June? June 23rd, to be exact. As in, *this* June 23rd. That means I’m a busy little bee behind the scenes here — interviews to respond to, blog tour posts to write. I spent some time yesterday playing on Tumblr, or rather, having my characters […]

Right Here Waiting is back on TWO of Amazon Best Sellers lists!

Currently ranking as#180,945 on the Literature & Fiction>Genre Fiction list, and #20, 376 in the Gay & Lesbian fiction best seller list!!! Now, that might seem ludicrous to be happy that one’s book is #20,376 on any list, but when one considers how many possible entries on that list (over 2 million!), 20,376 seems quite […]

A 5-star Book Review — Small Wonders by Courtney Lux

Whimsical, and brutal, bitter and kind, jaded and earnest – Trip Morgan is a incredibly nuanced, multi-faceted character that claims your heart even as you want to shout at him in frustration. He doesn’t pull any punches. From the first moment he tells of his unconventional birth, you realize he’s got more going on inside […]

Waxing poetic

I have been swamped under moving-related things, quite honestly overwhelmed by the task of categorizing and inventorying every single thing in my house before our move in a few months. How is it possible to provide a monetary replacement value on the handfelted Swedish tomten decorations I fell in love with and bought in Stockholm, […]

#AmWriting #AmLate #AmStillHere!!!

Gah! I can’t even remember the last time I actually posted here, and that makes me feel awful. It’s been a wild couple of weeks — killer flu, secondary upper respiratory infections, finding out we’re moving 6 months earlier than we’d thought, beginning to inventory our entire apartment and trying to finish home renovations back […]

Another FIVE STAR review for Right Here Waiting!!

The Bookish Raven has written a wonderful review of my book, Right Here Waiting.  “Right Here Waiting is a heart-warming story about two men loving each other fiercely even when they’re thousands of miles apart while one of them fights in WWII. It’s such a beautiful story – even if it did rip my heart out a […]
