Current project statuses :)
From the Noblest Motives, Variant Configurations 2 is in the second round of developmental edits. Editor seems to be generally pleased. Once those come back, it heads to the line editor and then we're nearly there!
Ice and Alligators (yes, I'll probably keep the title) is about 2-ish scenes in. This should be a fairly short one? But I've said that before...
Happy Friday, everyone! This week, Ellie Thomas is back with us with her new Regency era romance, Queer Relations! We pick right back up where Twelve Letters left off and Percy's in a pickle. Come have a listen :D

In the autumn of 1814, the Honourable Percy Havilland is generally content with his sheltered existence in London’s exclusive Mayfair. As a society beau, renowned for his fair and youthful beauty, an object of desire to other well-born gentlemen, Percy is slightly miffed that his personal life is not running as seamlessly as he might wish.
His good-natured lover from the spring Season, Jo Everett, has inexplicably lost interest, and his replacement, Nathaniel Brooks, is far too hard-headed to be cajoled and manipulated into pandering to Percy’s every whim.
But these trifles are cast into proportion when out of the blue, a family scandal of immense proportions threatens Percy’s peace of mind and his standing amongst the ton. Fearing rejection or even social banishment, to his surprise, Percy discovers a small, unconventional band of friends, including Jo, who are prepared to stick by him. And more importantly, he finds Nathan is utterly reliable in a crisis.
Will Percy remain spoiled, immature and pampered? Or can he grow from this disaster to appreciate the value of true friendship? And might he even learn to love?

GRL (the annual Gay Romance Literature Retreat) takes place in Portsmouth, VA this year, and I'm excited to be able to attend again with one of my co-authors, Bellora Quinn, whom I don't get to see enough. :D
I will have a small number of pridesopods to give away this year. (Actual colors are much nicer than in my terrible photo.) If you'd like one, come to my Author Lounge on Friday, before they're all snapped up.
Panel on Thursday, signing on Saturday! If you're in the area, but didn't register, remember that the signings are free and open to the public, so you can still come say hi! All author signings are on Saturday this year, with your authors divided into two groups by first name. I'll be in the A-J group at 10:30.
I'll have books with me to sell, including Rarely Pure and Never Simple and all the other series. (I can't bring everything, so if there's something you need, let me know!)
Panel - When Brains Collide
Pride Publishing has been working on getting back list series into Kindle Unlimited, so if that's one of the ways you read, I have some series for you :D
Three of my series are now available on KU - and this includes individual books as well as boxed sets:
