GRNW, GRL and WIP Newsies

Well life has been insane lately and I've been negligent in my blogging. I'm gonna hit on some highlights and give some info on my current WIPs if anyone cares enough to read further than this. If not, hey! Good to see you guys! <3

Okay so I went to GRNW. Met some awesome people and got to hang out with some awesome old friends. Y'all it was cray! Spent time with my girl Ann Tenino who had some badass swag from the TAG series. If y'all haven't read those book, you should totes get on it! And Daisy Harris, my fellow Sea-town author went hard with me and the shots. (I did end up snuggling her wallet for safe-keeping but that's a long story).There may be pictures of me putting ones in a go-go boy's briefs with my teeth but I will neither confirm nor deny that. Oh. And motor-boating Heidi Belleau could only end in one outcome: plans to co-write, but that was really after a Freudian slip during a panel which she and I kinda steamrolled with our inability to do anything but talk, talk, talk. We are those kids you sit on different ends of the table. I'm just sayin'.

Anywho. GRL is coming up soon! Can't wait. More meeting of new peeps and good times with old friends. I am preparing my liver for all of the "We should have a drink!" and "We're totes doing shots!" invites (can you really call an order an invite?) This promises to be quite epic.

Okay. Oh wow, A Little Complicated was #1 on Amazon US & UK for 10 days in a row. For everyone who bought it, whether you loved it or think I'm a tool, I appreciate you more than you'll ever know. I'm having such a great time writing and finding peeps who enjoy the stories I put out. I'm blessed to do what I love and hope I keep y'all happy.

I contracted Trouble & the Wallflower with Dreamspinner Press. Gavin & Davy will be released on the world in Spring 2014, as will my novella, Wood, Screws & Nails. with Piper Vaughn (sooo stoked). Piper Vaughn and I are working on the next book in the One Thing series which she started with the awesome M.J. O'Shea. It should ALSO be out in the spring on Dreamspinner Press. As soon as there's some blurbage there I'll hook y'all up.

Now on to my current WIP.

Where the World Ends started with a trip with my dearest M.J., Piper, and Sue on a trek from Seattle up the coast of western Washington state. It took me a few months to hammer out some issues in the outlining but I'm *THIS* close to finishing the last couple chapters so I thought I'd drop y'all some unofficial blurbage. I give you Will & Colin.

Where the World Ends
by Kade Boehme

Will Cooper is a Deputy in the Sheriff’s office of Western Washington’s coastal Gray’s Harbor County. After getting lost while searching for a stolen vehicle he meets Colin Sharpe who’s a member of the local Native American tribe. The two are attracted to one another but after a run-in with some tribe teenagers that ends in bad blood between the sheriff’s department, Will and Colin’s father the two can’t think of worse people to get involved with.

After Colin’s father, who’s a member of the tribal council wages a war against Will in the form of a law suit with some nasty allegations from a troubled teenager, Colin and Will face the reality that they have no future. But after running into each other in a more neutral environment they decide to throw caution to the wind and get each other out of their systems. What was supposed to be one night turns into an affair that neither sees resulting in a happy outcome.
Colin has the choice of standing against the racism of his father and the locals toward Will or walking away. Will has to decide if the man he met where the world ends is worth risking the fall out when he’s already been burned once by falling for the wrong man.

Okay. That's all. I promise I'm finished rambling. For those who stuck with me to this point, HEY AGAIN! For those coming to GRL, see you there. For those who were at GRNW, you were fucking fabulous. To everyone else, I love you all too.

Love Hard & Party Harder
