OUT NOW: Tomorrow's Hero

 My novella Tomorrow's Hero is available now at all major ebook sellers. From Pride Publishing this is the second book in my Success series of mm romances.


Book two in the Success series

A professional footballer with a secret. Can love conquer a lifetime of fear?

On the surface, international football star Fernando Inglesias has the perfect life—his dream career, fame, wealth and a beautiful girlfriend on his arm. At twenty-nine, Fernando has it all, but success is fragile, and one mistake could destroy everything. Fernando has a secret he will never share, something that could destroy everything he’s worked hard to achieve. There are no openly gay male footballers in the professional league, and he has no intention of becoming the first.

Ibiza…the party playground of Europe—a hedonistic island where anything is possible. On a weekend trip with the boys, love is the last thing Fernando expects to find. A chance meeting with Joshua, a handsome English visitor, changes it all. For the first time, he finds himself interested in more than sex from another guy. As Fernando and Joshua grow closer, the stakes are high on both sides as they struggle to overcome their personal differences.

Can Fernando risk his career for the sake of loving another man?

OUT NOW: NORTH POINT

Big news today. North Point is out in paperback and eBook. I loved writing this book. It’s set in a fictional coastal town called Nynemouth, very like the place I grew up in Northumberland. I loved everything about that area of the world. It’s so rugged and romantic and it will form the backdrop for all of the books in my Jagged Shores series, of which North Point is the first.


It should be the start of a perfect vacation. After a period of stress, Arnie Walker takes his nine-year-old son AJ home for the holidays. Arnie grew up in Nyemouth, a picturesque fishing town on the North-East coast of England, and he wants AJ to experience the kind of carefree, endless summer he enjoyed as a boy. It’s a short-lived dream. While taking an evening walk along the North Point cliff, Arnie and AJ witness a murder attempt.

For the volunteer crew of Nyemouth Lifeboat Station, it’s a rescue mission like none before, Helmsman Dominic Melton is part of the team who rescue the victim from the deadly North Sea. When Arnie and Dominic come together in the aftermath of the attack, the attraction is instant. Arnie isn’t looking for a relationship. He’s committed to his son’s wellbeing and has no time for a distraction like Dominic, even though the handsome ex-naval officer is hard to dismiss. Is it possible for Arnie to full fill his promises to AJ while falling for Dominic?

 Despite the distraction, a fledgling killer remains at large. As feelings between Arnie and Dominic develop, so does the danger they are in. North Point may be a beautiful place to fall in love, but it could also be the most dangerous.

Written in Scars - Free on Amazon this week

If you happened to have missed my novella Written in Scars, it's available for free download on Amazon this week until Friday. Don't miss out.




Pain fades but the scars remain.

When Logan Crawford, a former war correspondent turned best-selling author, appears on TV to promote his latest thriller, he is knocked out by his fellow guest, Sam Radcliffe. Logan’s travels around the world have opened his eyes to many things, but nothing as attractive as the man he meets that night. Sam was the victim of a vicious stabbing in his youth and is now an active campaigner against knife crime and violence. He is perfect in every way but one: the wedding band he wears. That’s a complication Logan doesn’t need.

Sam’s life is far from happy. His husband is addicted to hard-drugs and casual sex: a devastating combination. Johan was once the shining light in Sam’s life. Now he brings nothing but darkness. But Sam respects the vows they made. For better or for worse. The attraction Logan feels for him is mutual. Ruggedly handsome and engagingly smart, Logan is hard to resist. Sam will need to overcome the anguish of his past and barriers of his present if he’s to stand a chance with Logan.

A contemporary new romance from the author of Closer by Morning and The Anthem Trilogy.

FREE EBOOK - THE NIGHT


I hope this update finds everyone well in these intense days of lockdown. I know some people are finding it easier than others, and my heart goes out to anyone stuck at home, facing the days alone. My husband is an essential worker and continues to go to work, so I’m on my own for eight hours each day, but that’s nothing when I know he’s coming home each night and we can enjoy dinner and watching a bit of TV together. For anyone on their own, stay strong.

I enjoy being by myself and working on my books, but even I find it lonely at times. I’ve found the best way to break up the monotony of the day is to get out of the house and go for a walk. In the UK we’re (currently) allowed to take one hour of outside exercise, as long as we maintain social distancing measures. That hour is the highlight of my day and had definitely kept me on an even keel. Everyone copes in their own way and people need to do what works for them.

Anyway, I’ve used some of my free time to finally put together a mailing list. Once up and running I’ll send occasional emails with book notifications, special offers and updates. In the meantime for anyone signing up, I’m giving away a free short story.





Sleep is the last thing on their minds.

When lawyer Travis Milton joins a group of his colleagues to celebrate the birthday of a senior partner, things couldn’t go much worse. The older men’s idea of a good time is to act like drunken frat boys cruising from casino to strip clubs. Their bad behaviour gets them through out of one place after another. Travis is ready to cut them loose when they end up at Rubens, a high class bar in a luxury sky scraper, where he meets Oscar, a harassed but very sexy waiter.

Oscar is counting the minutes until the end of his shift, but when the hot young lawyer intervenes in a conflict, his night takes a turn for the better.

KEEPING BUSY DURING LOCKDOWN


I hope everyone is staying safe in these strange times. It’s not easy and I know some people are having a real struggle to cope but I think I’m doing okay. At least, I haven’t cracked under the pressure yet. I suppose writers have an advantage in that we’re used to spending long periods of time alone. In many ways, a day by myself working on a book is one of my favourite things. That’s not to say I’m not missing things. Going out, catching up with people, movies, music, theatre. I can’t imagine when we’ll be able to enjoy those things again. I know I won’t take them for grant anymore.

My husband and I are trying our best to keep things going as normally as possible. We celebrated his birthday at the end of March. I did all I could to make it special for him, all things considered. We had a delicious take-away meal of Indian food, drank a lot of wine and ended the night with a kitchen disco for two, which I’m sure the neighbours were thrilled about. Hopefully we’ll be able to make up for it next year.

The most important thing is to keep safe and though lock down might seem a pain, it’s doing just that. I’ve tried to keep keeping busy most days. There’s a lot coming up this year and I’d like to stay on track with it all.

I’ll be launching a newsletter in May with a brand new story The Night, which I finished this week. The story will be free to anyone who subscribes to the newsletter. Stay tuned for more info and check out the great cover art below.







Also in May, Pride Publishing are re-issuing The Anthem Trilogy in box set format. I can’t tell you how proud I am of the Anthem books and how much fun they were to write. If anyone missed them the first time around the pre-order links are live now.

And one more bit of info. My next novel North Point will be released in July by Pride Publishing. Watch this space for a cover reveal very soon. It’s awesome. Possibly my favourite cover yet.

I’m currently outlining book three in the Success series and hopefully I’ve be able to announce the release date for book two when the newsletter launches next month.

So, there’s my news for the moment. Everyone has their own way of dealing with the current situation, but I can honestly say that keeping busy has been the best coping strategy for me. Whatever you do, stay safe.



Love Thom
