Rainbow Connection

Rainbow Connection 1

So, I am over halfway with #RC and feel confident, now, that it will reach it’s publication date. So, it felt the appropriate time to do a cover reveal, and an explantion.

Rainbow Connection is a selection of 7-stories. The idea was first conceived from wanting to write a story without using sexuality labels. I simply wanted to write a love story without having to use the word gay, just like in straight stories where they never mention the word straight. I figured, whilst writing the first instalment of the story that I wanted to take it further, and removed all LGBTQA+ words from all of these stories, so, these stories are about 7 boys, some are in relationships, some aren’t, most of them like boys, they all have a journey to go on, and all attend a the same support group, Rainbow Connection.

The big GAY announcement

Picture1

So, the big Gay Brigade Announcement.

By the end of 2016 the entire of the Gay Brigade series will be unpublished, BUT don’t fret, because it is also being rewrote.

From the very beginning, the Gay Brigade is being redone, new story-lines (I know, story-lines!), and cleaner covers, there also is going to be a fifth book. Gay Brigade: McKenzie and Dominic, the story of the Gay Brigade’s two straight children!

I’m excited about the prospect of the new Gay Brigade, and so far the writing is going brilliantly (if I say so myself).

So, keep an eye out for more Gay Brigade announcements and release dates!!

2016’s Valentines Day Sale 

I decided to go for unconventional love stories his year. 

We, first have Released, with the long-overdue relationship of Jason and Jacob. A common story of a 19 year old wanting to start his own life, move out his parents house and persuade his career as a Drag Queen. 

Followed by Casey, the new boy at school instantly catches Mickey’s eye, and a relationship quickly develops, but, so does Casey’s secret. 

Then, The Wedding Plan, Harry and Oliver are authors, who plan everything, except for one of the most important day of their life, their wedding day. 

And finally, Stanley Street the story of Kevin, the 24 year old virgin, who finds the love of his life, in teacher Tom. 
Teaching Techniques will be FREE from the 14th Feb to the 18th!

How to Identify R.J. Wave 2

So, as most people know, I’m on a rebrand, rewrite, reinvent hiatus year. Apart of this month has been focused on ensuring Wave 2 is identifiable, and now, I think it is.

You will be able to identify R.J. Wave 2 books by their spines (well, in the paperback anyway.)

Picture2

On each and every spine, there will be the sexuality flag (of the MC at least), and my initials.

On digital versions, it will be made known that the book is the rebrand, rewrote and reinvented version, and will also be copyrighted 2016 (or beyond.)

Keep an eye out for the first of Wave 2!

2015…

  

Well, I guess it’s time for the reflective post on the last year. 

2015 was definitely one of the most conflicting years for my writing, there were definite high moments, but some very definite low moments, and I think my blog was with me throughout the majority of them. 

But first, the stats;

  • I released my first book of 2015 on Valentine’s Day, Prince’s Tale. 
  • Following that I released 7 books between March and October. 
  • My Black Friday sale placed 6 of my books in the top 25 list on Amazon.
  • My Black Friday sale had a record number of 700+ downloads. 
  • My most popular book in 2015 was All is Equal, since it’s release in August there has been 65 paid sales. 

Now, for the year;

The year started with Prince’s Tale going into pre-order, since then there has been many deadlines set, and many met, a few delayed. My most exciting release of the year was Basorexia, my story I wrote with 3 co-writers Finlay Harper (who is releasing his first novel in 2016), J.D. Barkley and K. Tealin, as the story was in production for 2 years it was definitely the most anticipated release, and as it began to happen definitely the most exciting, especially being able to publish it with 3 authors who had never published a book before. 

But, with highs, unfortunately comes lows, and with a more public view, comes negativity, when I look at my sale numbers I realise the negativity is coming from about 5% of my readers, but, as always negative comments stay with you more than compliments. Very soon the negativity began to get to me, and unfortunately the only thing I could think to do was declare a publishing break. The break was enforced after the release of my latest book, On Tour, and so far the break is helping me focus on past books and future plans without the idea of any deadlines. 

I love to write, and I especially love to share my writing, I want people to fall in love with my boys like I do, and I want people to be apart of their worlds. Their stories. Unfortunately right now, I’m feeling a bit hesitant to share anything new just yet, I’ve always been aware there is problems in my writing, but what indie author doesn’t have problems in their writing. I am looking to hopefully having some of those problems ironed out, and am actually looking forward to the things I have planned for early 2016. 

So, as you can tell 2015 was definitely a mixed bag for me, but I come out of it with the knowledge of what I need to do to improve, and won a slightly rose tinted optimism.
