I Am Proud to Announce the Release of “Christmas Cole” on Audiobook

I am so pleased to announce that “Christmas Cole” is now available on Audiobook. I am so honored by this. Dreamspinner Press chose to release three of my Christmas stories this year. Three! That is amazing.

I am so proud of this story. It deals with issues that in a way I’ve dealt with all my life, and was not easy to write. I put myself very much into this story. You’ll have to read or listen to understand because you won’t know what it is in the description below.

It’s the right price my friends and would make an excellent Christmas present!

Love and Light to you during this Holiday season that we are entering. Whatever your beliefs.

Namaste,
Ben

!!! ON SALE NOW !!!
CHRISTMAS COLE

Javier Torres was a sweet, plump, and very unpopular child. But over the years, he turned himself into a gorgeous gym god. The problem is he’s also become an egotistical snob. But one day his arrogance pisses off the wrong little old lady, and he wakes up to find that, like the Prince in Beauty and the Beast, he’s been transformed into something from his personal nightmares. Javier has nowhere to go but back home, where to his surprise, he is greeted with open arms, not just by the family he remembers, but by his new brother-in-law, Cole. Cole suspects there might be a pretty heart to go with the pretty face locked inside that new body, but has Javier learned enough to earn Cole—instead of coal—for Christmas?

Hello One and All and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!

Hello One and All and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

To all my readers, I want to wish you a Merry Kwanukkah Solstamas (did I get them all?).

Exciting news! Finally, my newest story, Christmas Cole, has been released.

I am very excited about the story, I think it is one of my best yet and a testament of writing and selling for about a year and a half now. WOW! Who’d thunk it?

Here is a little information about my newest story (from the wondrous Dreamspinner Press):

Javier Torres was a sweet, plump, but very unpopular child. But over the years, he turned himself into a gorgeous gym god. The problem is he’s also become an egotistical snob. But one day his arrogance pisses off the wrong little old lady, and he wakes up to find that, like the Prince in Beauty and the Beast, he’s been transformed into something from his personal nightmares.

Javier has nowhere to go but back home, where to his surprise, he is greeted with open arms, not just by the family he remembers, but by his new brother-in-law, Cole. Cole turns out to be a friend from childhood who harborded a secret crush on Javier. He doesn’t see what Javier sees when looking at himself in the mirror. Cole suspects there might be a pretty heart inside that new body, but has Javier learned enough to earn Cole—instead of coal—for Christmas?

Christmas Cole is a pseudo sequel, well, more of a spin-off really, from last year’s story, Christmas Wish. What I am saying is that you in no way need to read Christmas Wish before reading Christmas Cole (but if you don’t have Christmas Wish and want to read it first, well, feel free to buy both! ~ LOL!).

In that storyChristmas Wish, Harry is a bear in total lust with Javier. His biggest wish is to have a gorgeous body and get to know Javier. Magickal things happen, but not the way he hoped… But this is Romance! AND Christmas. I hope you know they have happy endings! I think these two stories may just be my favorites.

I hope you will check one or both of them out. They are a way of my saying Happy Holidays to each and everyone of you.

An Early Christmas/Yule Present!

My day week and month have been made!

I sold “Christmas Cole!” This is for Dreamspinner Press and their 2011 holiday stories. This will be their forth year of doing it, so it must be successful!

I’ll Be Home for Christmas
2011 Advent Calendar – A Story a Day in the Month of December
Edited by Lynn West

It’s the most fervent dream of the holidays: to have a life full of blooming romance and enduring devotion with love, joy, and even a touch of lust to warm the cold winter nights. No matter what holidays are celebrated, the idiom holds true: home is where the heart is.

I am so proud of this story. I think it may be one of the best things I’ve ever written! Found out they had over 80 submissions this year, and I was chosen!

I am thrilled! I am squealing I am so happy. Doing the *Snoopy Dance* all over the house!

In other words, I am happy!

Now if only one of my closest friends on the planet sells her I will dance all the way to where she lives, and that is pretty damned far away!

Happy Holidays to everyone!
BG

UPDATE!! I am so happy! My wish came true! Not only did I sell “Christmas Cole,” but my dear, sweet, wonderful friend sold her story “A Perfect Christmas.” And just wait until you read it! WONDERFUL story!

Christmas Cole

So late last night I sent off my latest child, “Christmas Cole,” for Dreamspinner’s “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” event.

So nervous and excited. No need for nervous because it doesn’t help one iota. And yes, get excited! Energy flows where attention goes!

Got a wonderful email back from Dreamspinner Press this morning and what a wonderful way to start my weekend!

BG! 😀 I’m always glad to see one of your stories cross my desk.

And how cool is that?

I am thrilled to have the rest of the weekend off. It begins with a bear pool party (Bear Soup!) and continues on with a dinner with my brothers from MMF, whom I usually only see once a year. How cool is that? And tomorrow night I get all caught up on True Blood!

What a great weekend!

I hope yours is great as well!

PAX!

Christmas in August

So I am finally almost done with my newest story for Dreamspinner Press’s Christmas/Holiday Advent stories.

This one is called Christmas Cole and is a pseudo-sequel to last year’s BIG seller, Christmas Wish. As I may or may not have mentioned, this one started darker than I intended, but when the clouds finally break and the romance sets it, it makes it all the more joyous! I cried writing it (good tears) and a friend felt the same way.

I have worked my ass off on it and thank God for my wondrous critic and betas, clmiles and essayel. I couldn’t do it without them. They not only see that misspelled word I haven’t caught one hundred times (thanks clmiles!) ~ but suggest actual changes to the story. With this one it was moving a scene to later in the story to keep the momentum going. I was far too close to see it, and trusted essayel enough just to MAKE the change!

This story has been a lot of work! I have loved it, but it has meant quite a few nights up LATE and also not house cleaning to my husband’s chagrin. And it is back to the RL job tomorrow. *meh*

I am awaiting final thoughts and last edits on changes I made and then hopefully it will go off today or tonight. If, NO! When I sell this one, it will be my twelfth sale in a year and a half! Why did I wait so long to trust myself and start writing?!

I’ve already begun work on several projects and am quite excited by them.

I love my life!

All right! That’s it for the moment!
Namasté,
BG
