End of year sale! Awards! New book news!

Goodreads M/M Romance Group Members Choice Awards 2012I need your vote! But before we get to that, I’m having big ol’ sale. From now until January 2nd of next year, all my books will be priced at a meager $2.99. Why? I know this time of year can be expensive, so I hope to help folks out that way. I’m also aware that many of you will be getting eBook readers for the holidays, and as a big believer in digital media, I want to make your introduction to this brave new world as cheap as possible. Or maybe the lower prices will help you pimp me to your friends and family. Or make it more tempting to try out some of my weirder stuff, like Hell’s Pawn. So there are lots and lots of reasons, but the bottom line is two weeks of cheap.

In other news, Something Like Winter and Kamikaze Boys have been nominated for various awards. Want them to win? The power is yours! The M/M Romance Group is having their Members Choice Awards, and you can weigh in on all sorts of books by voting right here (voting is now closed). It’s a long list, but you don’t have to choose an answer for every category, which is good if you don’t read BDSM or books about cowboys. Or books about BDSM cowboys. The categories my books have been nominated in are:

Best cover:
Something Like Winter (I wanna win this one for Andreas!)

Best Couple:
Ben and Tim – Something Like Winter

Funniest/Best Quote:
Something Like Winter

Best Contemporary Novel:
Something Like Winter

Best Book of the Year:
Kamikaze Boys

Best Coming Out Story:
Kamikaze Boys

Best Book Featuring Young Adult Characters:

Finally, if you’re wondering about the aforementioned new book news, I’ll be making a full announcement on January 2nd, so check back here for details. You guys are going to be so pumped! But I can’t leave you hanging right? So here’s a completely random image that isn’t a hint at all. 😉

Something Like... what?

    I will be sure to vote for your books! (They deserve to win every category.) Now you’ve made me curious and excited for your new book (more so than any present I may get over the holidays). Can’t wait!

  2. hehe. Very good hint Jay. I think I know the title already!

  3. Jordy

    OMG is that a leave? Can we expect Something Like Autumn? The life for Ben and Tim after their marriage?

    Man, January 2nd can’t come soon enough 😀

    And you’ll have my vote, but that’s a given 😉

    I nominated Something Like Winter for best cover because I think Andreas’ work is amazing! I’m seriously pulling for you two to win in that category! And the others, of course. And that book news is totally going to be the best thing that will have happened in 2013 so far. Can’t wait!

    • Thank you for nominating his cover, Amy! That’s tremendously kind of you! Andreas is one of the most humble guys in the world, so I love it when he gets recognition of any sort. Being nominated is already awesome, so I owe you some serious hugs. :)

      • Amy P

        How annoying is it that Andreas is super handsome and successful and nice and then also has this amazing talent and creates these gorgeous covers for you? And by annoying I mean amazing? You guys are a definite power couple. Jandreas? Andray? (Your names are not conducive to a dumb name mash-up.)

        • It’s super annoying! I don’t know how I cope! 😀 And I’m glad about the name mash-up failure, although some people call us Jay and Dre. LOL

    I actually just finished Something Like Summer (and started reading Something Like Winter) yesterday. I’ve been looking around here today, and saw this, and voted :) Good luck and best wishes from Adlershof, Berlin!

    It’s a maple leaf! You’re coming to Canada! Yes!!!


    I’ve voted, this voting system is one of the worst I’ve seen! there’s whole long list for every category, and they’re not even ordered alphabetically. But I manage to pick out your wonderful two books. ^_^
    I can’t wait for the announcement, I’m always up for something new!

    • Thank you for voting! I agree that the survey is unwieldy. I think many of the categories could be combined, which would help. This is only the second year they’ve had these awards, so hopefully the process will get more streamlined in the future.

    I love “something like summer” so of course this year i have already order, kamikaze boys and something like winter, cant wait to read them! as for the new book, hmm i’m going to guess something like Autumn? cant wait to hear about it! (:

    With the image of the SLS and SLW framing a leaf, and taking into account the reference to Autumn in the first line of the epilogue of SLW – dare we hope?

    All voted too buddy!

    Hope you’ve had a good holiday period!

    • Someone else mentioned the reference to Autumn in the epilogue. That was only really meant to show that the story of Something Like Summer was finally drawing to a close, since all the loose ends are tied up. Mostly. 😉

  10. Tine

    Voted :-)- out of pure conviction! Fingers crossed for you two!
    Just reading ” Something like winter” and I so blame you on missing the world outside. So liking it.

    Whatever will come- I’m looking forward :-)

  11. Stephanie Gomez

    I like to consider myself an expert on this genre of books and you definitely are at the top of my best author list! Your books touch my heart in a way few others have. Good luck!

    • Thank you so much, Stephanie! That’s very flattering. I always try to write from the heart, so it makes me happy that my books are connecting with you like that. :)

  12. Terra

    I so can’t wait for this new book. It’s going to be amazing. Wouldn’t by chance be another fantasy right?

    • No, but thank you for asking. The next two books I publish will have a contemporary setting. Maybe I’ll return to fantasy afterwards. It’s hard to say.

      • alan

        Please return to fantasy soon. I’ve just finished the Nightrunner series by Lynn Flewelling and i feel like there’s now an empty space in my heart. just kidding.

        • I’m afraid I’m taking a break from fantasy at the moment. This year I’m focusing on the Seasons series. After that, who knows where I’ll end up! Thanks for wanting more though. That’s really cool!

  14. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter

    some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look
    forward to your new updates.
