It's my publishing anniversary today – A huge thank you, plus backlist giveaway!

This is a milestone date for me. My first novella, Nothing Serious, was published by Dreamspinner Press two years ago today.
The two years since then have been a rollercoaster as I’ve evolved into an almost full time author — something I never imagined being in a million years.
thank-you-clothesline-752x483I’d like to say an enormous thank you to all the people who have supported me on this journey so far. To Dreamspinner Press for taking a chance on me; to my pre-readers and writer friends who keep me going when I want to give up; to the editors who have made my words better; to the cover artists who make my books beautiful on the outside; to every person who has ever bought and read one of my stories.
But most of all, I want to say a huge thank you those loyal readers who have kept coming back for more; who have recommended my books to your friends; who have reviewed and pimped and helped other readers find my stories — because without you guys and your enthusiasm, I wouldn’t have a writing career. You rock. 🙂
Nothing Serious cover low resMark O’Brien is finally being honest with himself. His relationship with Rachel is over and he’s moving out of the home they’ve shared for six years. They get along, but he can’t fix a relationship when the person he’s with is the wrong gender.
Jamie Robertson, one of the removal men, is huge and ridiculously gorgeous, and Mark is smitten at first sight. When a cardboard box splits, revealing items of a personal nature that Mark never wanted anybody to see, he’s mortified. But it sparks the start of a beautiful friendship with benefits.
As Jamie initiates Mark into the joys of gay sex, the two men get increasingly close and “nothing serious” turns into something rather important to both of them. But communication isn’t their strong point. Will either man ever find the courage to be honest about his feelings?
I’m giving away an ebook copy of anything from my backlist. To enter, simply leave a comment below.
Edited to add: I forgot to give an end date when I first posted. I’ll leave this open till midnight on Monday 26th, so I’ll pick a winner on Tuesday.
