It's a very D Christmas, after all.

Awhile back, I decided that I definitely, positively, 100% wanted to have a new web story available for this holiday season. I even had a title..."A Very D Christmas." So I started writing it. And writing it...and writing it...well, pretty soon it was long enough that I no longer felt super comfy offering it for free. It was expanding into short-novella territory, upwards of 40 pages.

Then I had the idea - why not make it a fundraiser? I could offer part of the purchase price as a holiday charity donation. But which charity? There was only one answer: the Trevor Project.

The recent spate of teenage LBGTQ suicides has spurred interest in the Trevor Project as well as Dan Savage's associated It Gets Better Project. Both are amazing, worthy causes and I know you'll be just as excited to support them as I am.

So now, "A Very D Christmas" is for sale for $1.99, $0.50 of which will be donated to the Trevor Project in the name of all my readers.

Please click over to my website, the story purchase link is on the front page.

  3. This is the nicest Christmas surprise - how I have missed the Zero boys!! Thank you so much for writing and sharing this with us. I just downloaded it and am going to save it for a quiet time when I can indulge without outside interruptions. A little gift to myself...so thank you for that!! I look forward to (hopefully) more from this universe in the future.

  5. Hi, just wanted to say thanks and that I really have enjoyed your story of Jack and D.

    I had just a quick question. In your Christmas story you have D reference his wife Shelia. In Zero, I thought the name of the wife was Sharon? Just wondering.

    I hope your new year is wonderful and you have many days of inspiration to continue writing Jack and D's story.

  6. Hi I got so excited about this new addition to the story I bought a copy thru PayPal but I haven't received the PDF. Then I saw that it was only until Jan 31.
    Please, please, please since I've already paid for it may I get a copy of A Very D Christmas? I loved Zero to the Bone so much. It would make my whole week if I could get a copy.
    Thanks

  7. Just finished reading your book and all the short stories and I loved them all. Kept picturing in my mind the (gay) actor Matt Bomer (from the tv-series White Collar)as Jack and Vin Diesel as D. :-) I will certainly read your sequel.

  8. I read your Facebook note: May the Muse that brought you Jack and D re-alight on your imagination and return your talent to telling us more about these two full-bodied, complicated and thoroughly engaging men.

  9. I finished "Zero at the bone" today and can't think about anything! In fact I'm like in a daze, constalntly thinking 'bout the book! Can't get anything done!

    I'm so completly in love with the characters, the plot and how you played the emotions, the development of the relationship, and the sole fact that it is _probable_, not just a mere m/m story that diregards reality, but... goddamn.
    I can't even think v.v Love 'em to bits.
    I wanna more! *sniffles*

  10. Greetings!
    I just finished "Zero", and was so blown away, impressed and desperate for more, I went immediately to your web site. I wasn't able to purchase the Christmas story, the pay site won't take my CC? Is there anywhere else to go to buy it?
    Ooo, and thank you for the web stories!

  11. I just finished reading "Zero at the Bone" and I adore it. It's been such a job to wade through so much m/m romance slush on Amazon to find good gems. Just have to say, yours came up on several "rec" lists and after rejecting about 20 other novels I ended up buying yours for my Kindle. I was not disappointed. I could not put it down. You did a fantastic job. I love these guys!

  12. Hi Jane

    I've recently discovered your book through another book blog and I stayed up 2 nights in a row to finish Jack and D's story once I downloaded this onto my Kindle. I loved discovering the 3 short stories you have on your blog, but I'm upset that I cannot get access to the Christmas Story due to the dealine having come and gone..I'm hoping you will publish this on your site at some point? *Pleading and begging on knees* I hope you have found inspiration to start the sequel to J & D next adventure as I for one will be waiting with baited breath...Sofia
