A general post of sorts

Hi guys.  This is a sort-of update.  I'm working on a new release, and it should be out within the next day or so.  (It's another bunny shifter book...but a little different.)

In the meantime, here's a picture I took over the summer.  I think it turned out pretty well:

I recently bought a book on identifying trees in my local area, so hopefully I will soon be well-versed in nature!  (Okay, maybe not.)  I also saw a bald eagle eating a dead fish!  Although I didn't get a picture of that (the eagle or the fish).

I'm trying to see if it works for me to be an Amazon Associate and earn money from clicks, so I'll be starting to link my books that way from now on, if it works out for me.  I was too intimidated to try for a long time.

On that crass, commercial note, here are some things I've gotten recently through Amazon, and quite liked:

  (Amazon affiliated links)

(an interesting movie)


(3D wall stickers--very cute but don't stay up very well!)

(I love this!  I feel OK on it, when I mostly couldn't drink coffee at all for years!)

(These kitty sticky notes are a lot more use than you'd think!)

And of course, last but not least, for making healthier cocoa...and you know I need my cocoa!!!  (I still maintain it helps my brainpower, and believe me, I need all I can get!)  ;-)

Well, there are actually a lot of stressful things going on in my life right now, but I wanted to focus on some upbeat stuff, as well as trying out these affiliate links things.  

I'll be posting the new book's details soon.  In the meantime, here are some other people's books I've enjoyed a lot recently.  (Links go to Goodreads.)

...and, well, a lot more, if I'm honest.  (I read a lot of books!)

Forgotten Things

Forgotten Things
(Men of Magic #1)
by Hollis Shiloh

Magic takes a toll. It shortens lives, damages people, and lets magicians be used as weapons in a war. 

Jocelyn is one magician who survived that bad time and still works for the magical ministry — or rather, overworks for them. To all appearances, he's pulled together, competent, and functional. Although he has bad memories and nightmares, he manages. But he would like more from life: to find a man he can love. 

A forgotten file tells of several magicians who were put in a mental hospital after the war. Finding no other records on the subject, Jocelyn must take a trip to the sanatorium to sort things out. 

One damaged magician is still there after all these years: a handsome, sweet man with missing memories, a shy, gentle nature, and a great love of drawing. 

And the moment he meets Ellis, Jocelyn knows: This is him. He's the one. Can two damaged men help each other heal, survive all dangers, and find true love?

Hugh and Jem work together as a team for the ESRB. Hugh's just a regular ex-cop, but Jem always knows the odds — of anything — and he's always right. It certainly hasn't made his life any easier.
Working for the ESRB has its challenges, such as when trying to track down Martin, a powerful empath who doesn't want to be found. Martin also happens to be the one person who might just make Hugh and Jem face the suppressed attraction between them.
Knowing the odds can't always protect two men from danger, though — and their fledgling relationship will be soon put to a terrible test.

Trey's Partner - a shifters and partners novel

A Shifters and Partners Novel 

Trey's Partner

by Hollis Shiloh

Trey's life has been one of protection and privation. Facing a hungry winter, he leaves his mountain home and family and goes looking for work in the human world. The "wolf school" seems like a good choice. He might not know much about the modern world, but if he can learn to work with a human, he'll earn a good living, never go hungry again, and help his family survive, too.

It's just a job, and he doesn't understand why some shifters are so fussy about who they team up with. Finding the perfect partner is a no-brainer for Trey. He just needs someone he trusts and can work with — someone who isn't overly emotional. Trey easily finds the right partner — as long as his choice agrees to it. As long as no emotions get involved.

Gareth Silverman has been locked up, away from his magic — and is slowly dying. Silus is desperate to get him free. With the help of friends from Skeffield Manor, he might just manage it...but at what cost?

Join friends old and new — magicians, mechanicalized men, and others, including one sparkly designer — at the revolving doors of Skeffield Manor, as it once again becomes a stage for magic, mystery...and love.

Takes place after "Mystery at Skeffield Manor," and in the same universe as "Wes and Kit" and "Robert and Louie," "Like A One-Eyed Cat," "Cold Hands Warm Heart," and "Gear Heart."

A story told from multiple points of view.

Length: approx. 54,000 words 
Heat level: Low

The book is currently in Kindle Unlimited.

This is the long awaited (well, by me, anyway) sequel to "Mystery at Skeffield Manor" (and related stories).

It includes cameos from almost every character I've written in this universe. (I never managed to include anyone from Gear Heart; the story had to come first not the cameos!)

If at any time you need a copy for any reason (different format, etc), just contact me and I'll get you a review copy. (Even if you don't end up reviewing it, that's fine!) Remember to specify format, please. Hollis.shiloh@gmail.com.  Always glad to hear from you!  :-)

Still Fireproof

Still Fireproof

by Hollis Shiloh
(takes place after Fireproof)

Levi loves Jett. Jett loves Levi. They share a life together and everything. So why is it still so hard for Jett to trust his boyfriend? And why is he having weird dreams again? 

With a life that never seems to stay orderly and neat, and relationship skills to grow into, they have their work cut out if they want to stay together...and fireproof. 

Takes place after "Fireproof" 
Contains some homophobic language

"Jett!" The brakes squeaked as Levi pulled up, leaned out the window of my ratty old truck, and called my name. He was wearing reflective sunglasses and the brakes squealed a little and he honked the horn a couple of times.

"Yo, Jett!" He waved, leaning half out the window, then pulled himself back inside and tumbled out, all muscle and charm, acting like an overgrown pup assured of his welcome. He was the hottest fireman in the world.

He wore jeans, suspenders, and a tight, tan t-shirt that clung to all the hard places on his chest and shoulders and upper arms. Looked like he'd barely squeezed himself into it. It was clean, so he must've showered after work.

He headed towards me, arms outstretched, grin maniacal.

"Don't," I said, smiling, trying halfheartedly to shy away from his arms. "I'll get you filthy!"

"Mm, filth!" He caught me, squeezing me jubilantly and exuberantly close. He squeezed and cuddled me against him with all his strength, planting a big, sloppy wet kiss on my neck. "Mm! Delicious filth."

"Would you stop?" I laughed and finally got free of him, wiping the wet kiss off my neck.

"Oh, nice." He rolled his eyes, and pushed his sunglasses up to the top of his head. He thumped me on the arm, sucked his full lips into his mouth briefly, and grinned. His smile was cherubic and naughty at the same time. I don't know how he avoided growing up to be a total brat, because who could say no to a face like that?

"Any of your boys comin'?" he asked.

"Oh hell, I don't know." I glanced back, raised a hand to wave in mute greeting and farewell. I realized that they'd been watching me and that, technically, I'd probably come out of the closet to them today.

José raised a hand tentatively back. Tyrell gave me the guy nod, a single jerk of his head. Could mean anything. I walked around to my side of my truck — the passenger's side.

"I think I came out of the closet today," I told Levi.

"No shit?" He cast me a curious look as we moved to get into the truck. He hadn't picked up the wings yet or I'd smell 'em. "They didn't know?"

"Apparently not." I buckled my belt. It was old, frayed.

I was glad Levi was driving. I've always hated being behind a wheel. It feels more like responsibility than freedom to me, and not the good kind of responsibility, but the kind that can kill innocent people if you make a single mistake. I'm a tense driver; my shoulders get tight from holding onto the wheel so hard.

Levi, now he's cool. He sort of drapes himself on the wheel; he's alert but relaxed. You can see he's just enjoying the hell out of it, even driving my old banger. It's an old white pickup truck, and I took it all the way to Alaska a couple of years ago when I was running from Levi and from my magic.

Somehow, it had survived the trip, the long winters there, the hard miles I'd put on it, and the journey all the way back. Like me. Still kicking, and yet I'd never managed to develop an affection for the truck, like guys are supposed to have for their vehicles. I mean, shit, I wasn't that guy.
