Dreamspinner Press just picked up Thick as Thieves and the book will be published in ebook and in print in July/August this year.
Am I dancing? Oh, yeah. It's hard to say who is dancing more, me or the poodle, who knows every time I dance she gets a treat.
I can't tell you how happy I am this book found a home. Vorgell and Madd are the funniest characters I've had the pleasure to follow around in ages. Writing their story was a blast and I hope readers enjoy them too.
The book has yet to go through editing and there's no official blurb just yet, but here's what I put in the query letter:
It’s lust on first sight when Vorgell the oversized barbarian gets thrown into a cell and sees Maddog, a young and pretty thief. But Vorgell really can’t help it—while starving in the woods he killed a unicorn, ate some magic berries, and fucked himself in the ass with the unicorn’s horn, a potent aphrodisiac. Now he’s perpetually erect and can’t stop thinking about sex. But he’s in luck…Madd is a male witch who knows exactly how to put Vorgell’s magical body to good use, and he tricks Vorgell into a kiss that gets them out of their dungeon.
Vorgell may desire sex in general and Madd in particular, but Madd has no intention of being screwed by a man twice his size. He’s dealing with problems of his own, most particularly an enchanted love collar that causes him to desire his most hated enemy. He wants the collar off…but that requires a basilisk egg currently being kept in the castle they just escaped. Drawn to each other by magic and lust, the two men agree to an alliance. Conniving circles of witches, wizards who breed fiends from their victims, sun virgins whose maidenheads incinerate any who penetrate them, and a baby basilisk all lend danger and fun to this tale of two men who just need to find some way to admit they really are perfect for each other.
Thanks to all the people who commented on the first chapters of Thick as Thieves! You guys letting me know you were enjoying the story played a part in bringing this book to life. I will have a special deal for you <wink> when the book is published.
