The cover for The Janitor

I’m a naturally optimistic type of person, you know? Yeah, I think good things will happen, only they don’t usually--Dane, The Janitor

Dane bleeding all over the cover, perfect. I think this cover by April Martinez is award-winning material.

So, yeah. I really can't believe it. The actual cover is really huge, it was downsized by PB, but if you click on the cover, it will become larger. Some of Dane's magic rubbed off and this happened.

The novel is out May 5th!

And I have lots of news and excerpts for my upcoming work on my live journal set up for my original work, Jan Revealed. It's a little easier for me since I can put excerpts under a cut but I update it weekly with book reviews, excerpts, raffles.

Horizons, a book review

Horizons by Mickie B. Ashling

M/M romance, novel length

When Clark Stevens, a popular wide receiver with a potential NFL contract, winds up in the ER because of an injury, familiar ground for the young and troubled athlete, he is overwhelmed by his attraction for his male trauma doctor, Dr. Jody Williams. He can't stop himself from flirting with him, even though he's struggled for years with his forbidden desires for other men.

Jody also struggles to keep up a professional front with his patient, a young, beautiful man who he immediately empathizes with. But it's clear from Clark's mixed signals that he's hiding who he is, which Jody knows is disaster. He can't let himself fall for this 'straight' football player.

This story gives us the sympathetic and emotional struggles of both Jody and Clark as they can't seem to stay apart, even though Clark kids himself he can bury his want. It also features some of my favorite 'kinks,' an innocent-to-being-with-other-men young hero, a caring relationship that benefits both men, and lots of angst which is believable and grounded.
