New Facebook Group


I’ve created a fan group on Facebook. I know, I’m a bit behind the times on this. I confess, Facebook scares the crap out of me. Over the years, it’s been the source of a great deal of anxiety. On the other hand, my writing cave is awfully lonely. I’ve decided to make more of an effort to socialize. So, if you’re interested, you can find the group here . It’ll mostly be dog pictures and random conversations, leaning toward the positive side of life — I’m allergic to drama and sick to death of negativity. There will also be occasional giveaways, including ARCs of all new releases. Hope to see you there! The post New Facebook Group appeared first on Marie Sexton . Original link

Autism Awareness Blog Hop


Autism Fact:  Autism is a developmental disability. It’s a difference in how your brain works. Autistic people can have good mental health, or experience mental health problems, just like anyone else. Welcome to RJ Scott’s Autism Awareness Blog Hop ! Thanks for stopping by. My instructions were simply to write my hopes and dreams for myself, my child, or humanity. I suppose my one big hope for humanity would be that we stop focusing on our differences and start focusing on what unites us. Judging other people and choosing to hate them simply because they are different from us is destructive, no matter what. Whether that person is “different” because they have autism, or because of their reli...

Terms of Service Available for Preorder!


Terms of Service is now available for preorder. It’ll be released on June 25. Find it HERE .   Dr. River McKay moved to Denver with his husband, Terrence, hoping to give their failing marriage a new start. A year later, Terrence is gone and River’s left brokenhearted. Now, he’s decided it’s time to get back in the game. A chance encounter at the hospital introduces him to Phil, a strong-willed pharmacist who isn’t impressed by River’s degree. Phil can’t deny his attraction to River, but dating is out of the question. Phil only does one kind of relationship — domestic servitude, where he gives the orders and his partner obeys. To his surprise, River agrees — not because he likes the idea, but...

Terms of Service is Finished! (Sort of)


I’m thrilled to announce that I just wrapped up the first draft of Terms of Service . This book nearly killed me. I know, I say that every time, but this time was worse. I made it all the way to 56k late last year before trashing the entire thing and starting over. I’d originally planned to release it in February, but that clearly didn’t happen. Finally, the first draft is complete! Now, that doesn’t mean the book is done. I have a lot of tweaking to do, but that’s fine. I can revise all damn day. But getting to this point — first draft complete, needing only a bit of polish — is a HUGE step for me. I totally want to celebrate. Terms of Service will probably be about 123,000 words by the tim...

Naughty or Nice Audiobook Giveaway!


It’s the holiday season, and I’m giving away FREE AUDIOBOOKS! But like Santa, I’m basing your present on whether you’ve been naughty or nice.   How do you play? Simple! If you think you should get the “nice” prize (an audiobook of Winter Oranges), post something nice in the comments. If you think you need the “naughty” prize (audiobook of One Man’s Trash), post something naughty. There are, however, a few RULES: NICE: I’m looking for stories that give us the warm fuzzies. I w ant things that help restore our faith in humanity. People being nice to other people, or to animals, or… whatever. These don’t have to be personal stories (although they can be). You don’t have to tell the whole story ...

ONE MAN’S TRASH Available Now


After four tours in Afghanistan, Warren Groves couldn’t settle into civilian life. For the last twelve years, he’s survived by working odd and often illegal jobs for some of Denver’s less fortunate. His personal life is equally unsatisfactory. He can barely remember the last time he had sex, let alone the last time he got to use somebody hard and rough, the way he likes. Fate intervenes when a favor for a friend leads him to a pretty young rentboy named Taylor Reynolds. Taylor’s spent the last few years on his own, working as a hustler, going home with anybody who’ll give him a warm meal and a place to sleep. He enjoys having a bit of force used against him, and he makes Warren an offer he c...

ONE MAN’S TRASH: Opening Excerpt


Today, I thought I’d share an excerpt of the opening chapter of ONE MAN’S TRASH, which comes out in just four days!! (I’m seriously freaking out about this one. I have a feeling you’ll either love it or hate it.) Also, the audiobook, narrated by Joh Solo, is DONE. It should be available for purchase any day now. You can learn more about ONE MAN’S TRASH here . Scroll down past the picture for the full excerpt.           CHAPTER 1   Warren’s scars ached. It made no sense. How could scars earned in a war almost fifteen years earlier suddenly start hurting again just because he was low on sleep? Logical or not, driving home from work at seven o’clock on a Saturday morning, they throbbed in time ...

Probable Delay for Heretic Doms Club, Book 2


My original plan was to release book 2 of the Heretic Doms Club series (working title, Terms of Service) in early February 2018. Unfortunately, it looks like I’ll probably have to delay that release date. After taking most of 2016 off, I was hesitant to commit to a four-book series. For better or worse, I talked myself into it. It seemed like a no-brainer, really. I had small starts already on books two and three. I had a rough outline for each of them. My only real concern was book four, which I hadn’t much thought about yet. At this point, book four is the least of my worries! “The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.”  Book 1 of the Heretic Doms Club, One Man’s Trash , comes out...

Cover Reveal: ONE MAN’S TRASH


I’m so excited to share the cover art for my upcoming novel, One Man’s Trash. Thanks so much to Garrett Leigh for her work on this. This is without a doubt the grittiest, most erotic contemporary story I’ve ever written. I think this cover captures that beautifully. You can find the blurb and preorder link lower in this post.   After four tours in Afghanistan, Warren Groves couldn’t settle into civilian life. For the last twelve years, he’s survived by working odd and often illegal jobs for some of Denver’s less fortunate. His personal life is equally unsatisfactory. He can barely remember the last time he had sex, let alone the last time he got to use somebody hard and rough, the way he lik...

ONE MAN’S TRASH Available for Preorder


I don’t have a cover yet, but I do have a preorder link! One Man’s Trash is dark and angsty, very raw, and easily my most erotic contemporary novel to date.  After four tours in Afghanistan, Warren Groves couldn’t settle into civilian life. For the last twelve years, he’s survived by working odd and often illegal jobs for some of Denver’s less fortunate. His personal life is equally unsatisfactory. He can barely remember the last time he had sex, let alone the last time he got to use somebody hard and rough, the way he likes.

FAMILY MAN – 2nd Edition Coming September 11


Family Man, which I co-wrote with Heidi Cullinan, was originally published back in 2013 by Samhain Publishing. Because Samhain is now defunct, Dreamspinner Press will release the 2nd edition* of Family Man on September 11, 2017. I’ll have a preorder link soon.    Sometimes family chooses you. At forty, Vincent “Vinnie” Fierro is still afraid to admit he might be gay—even to himself. It’ll be a problem for his big, fat Italian family. Still, after three failed marriages, it’s getting harder to ignore what he really wants. Vinnie attempts some self-exploration in Chicago’s Boystown bars, far from anyone who knows him. Naturally, he runs smack into someone from the neighborhood. Between working...

My Plans for 2017 (including upcoming releases)


I think I’m way overdue for a blog post. If you happen to be one of my sponsors on Patreon, none of this will be news, but for everybody else, I thought I’d let you know what’s going on, and share my plans for 2017. Coming May 22 The Well First of all, in case you missed it, my novel The Well will be released in just ten days! This book does have a romantic subplot, but it’s less romance, and more paranormal suspense. It’s funny, because it seems like every single time I write a book that isn’t a traditional contemporary romance, some review site always says, “This is Marie’s first departure from contemporary romance.” Seriously? Just for the record, my first “departure” from contemporary ro...

The Well – Preorder Link and Cover Reveal Coming Soon!


So, I know it seems like I announced I was on hiatus only yesterday and then suddenly I was back. The truth though is that I took almost a full year off of writing — from January 2016 until late October or early November. I’m still not writing on any kind of regular, full-time basis, but I did finish one short novel called The Well. It’s a romantic suspense, with just a bit of a paranormal twist. Here’s the blurb: Twenty years after prom queen Cassie Kennedy is brutally murdered, six teenagers break into the house where she was killed to hold a séance. Haven knows his cousin Elise only wants to scare the crap out of him and his friends, but he’s willing to put up with one of her pranks ...

Damned If You Do Available Now (Again)!

Because Samhain Publishing closed their doors, the original version of this story is no longer available. Therefore, I’ve self-published the 2nd edition of Damned If You Do . There is no content change at all from the first edition, so if you bought it then, there’s no need to buy it again now. However, if you haven’t purchased it yet, here’s your chance! This is my comedic twist on the Charlie Daniels’ song, The Devil Went Down to Georgia. It’s sweet and fun and a little bit silly. Oh. And it totally makes fun of Tom Brady. Enjoy! Soul acquisition is a drag, but if Abaddon doesn’t catch up on his quota, he could be demoted to scooping poop for the Hounds of Hell. With a deadline hangin...

Calling All Cover Artists!

I need a cover for a book I plan to self-publish in April or May of 2017. I’ve worked with some amazing cover artists over the past few years, but I like having several options to choose from. My cover contest for Trailer Trash went so well last year, I decided to go ahead and do it again. So, if you’re interested in submitting a cover (and being paid for your work), please read on. (For those who are saying, “Wait! Does this mean you’re writing again?” you can jump back to this post for the answer.) Now… back to my cover.    What I want from you: A mock-up (or as many mock-ups as you’d like to submit) of the ebook cover. I don’t expect this to be the final. I unders...

Update, Or: How Karma Bit Me On the Ass

Hiatus Over (Mostly) I posted back in August that I was on a bit of a hiatus from writing. But the truth is, I started writing again sometime in mid- to late-October. I’m sure a few people are saying, “that didn’t take long.” But the hiatus actually started back in January of 2016. It just took me until August to admit it publicly. And I guess by that point, I was already getting tired of it. At any rate, whatever the reasoning: Yes, I’m writing again, although I’m taking it very slow, one day at a time, trying not to force things. Still hoping to reclaim that feeling of wanting to write, rather than feeling that I have to write. Some days it works better than others. So, What’s Up...
