What scene did you enjoy the most when writing your story?

The whole story. Seriously, It’s rare I say that, but I feel in love with Ronnie and Ian when I wrote Unfettered, and it was such a joy to get back to them and dig deeper and take them to the next level of their relationship that it flowed so easily and I loved it all.

Is your story part of a series or connected to any of your other books?

It is. It’s a continuation of Ronnie and Ian’s relationship, from the Overwatch Series. The events on UNABASHED happen at the same time as the events in PRIMAL, only the main couple is different. Because it takes place on a stacked timeline, readers of PRIMAL will likely recognize one or two of the events, only they’ll be from a different characters POV this time.

If your story came with a warning label, what would it say?

WARNING: Story contains raw, raunchy, real love and power exchange. If you can’t stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen, and the bedroom, and the shower, and the dungeon.

Read an Excerpt from Sasha White’s UNABASHED:

Hot lips wrapped around his cock and pulled him from sleep. It was heaven, and it was hell.

Ronnie Mack. The girl who’d tempted him so much as a young man that he’d left town without saying goodbye to anyone. Finally, she was in his life again, and in his bed. Heaven.

He lay there, eyes still closed, enjoying the delicious torment of velvet tongue stroking up and down his cock and fighting the need to take control at the same time. It was a rare thing for him to have a sub in his home, in his bed, but it was even more rare for him to fight the urge to control. He was a Dominant, he liked to be the one in control, the one tormenting someone until they were drowning in pleasure. Any woman entering his bed knew that, but normally they’d have negotiated their boundaries.

He’d been in such a hurry they’d skipped that step the night before. Hell.

Damn, she was good with that little tongue of hers. He wasn’t going to last very long, which was a shock considering the woman between his legs had pretty much wrung him dry the night before. Talented fingers cupped his balls as she took him deep and he bumped the back of her throat for a too brief second before she pulled back. A growl rumbled in his chest.

Fuck holding back, she’d said she wanted a man who was dominant, now she’s got one. Time for her training to truly begin.

He reached down, wrapped his fist in Ronnie’s silky hair and shoved his dick down her throat until she gagged. Her fingers tightened on his sack briefly then she pushed herself closer, gagging harder.

“No,” he growled roughly. He pulled her back by her hair and looked down to meet her gaze. “I’m in control. You do nothing but open wide, relax, and swallow when it’s time.”

Her dark eyes widened, her cheeks flushed and her sharp little nails dug into his thighs as she looked up at him. Slowly, like a little tease, her jaw dropped and she opened for him.

What scene did you enjoy the most when writing your story? 

It's actually a tie between their first sex scene, and all the anxiety and craziness that entails, and the scene at the end of the novella when they're hashing through their feelings and trying to find their happily ever after. Both really fun scenes to write, for completely different reasons.

Is your story part of a series or connected to any of your other books? 

No, this is a standalone work, and kind of a new style and feel for me. I had a lot of fun writing it!

If your story came with a warning label, what would it say? 

Warning: Intense kinky hotness, and ALL THE FEELS.

Read an Excerpt from LOANED:

“What did you say again?” I looked the woman up and down. Attractive, nubile, earnest, wholesome, with an impressive mane of chestnut hair. She wore a thick black collar and nothing else.

“Please Sir, my Master wishes this worthless slave to offer herself to a stranger for his amusement.”

I stirred my drink. Ice clinked against the glass, barely audible above the pounding music. “His amusement?” I asked. “Your Master’s amusement? Or mine?”

She didn’t move and she didn’t look at me. “For your pleasure, Sir, and his amusement. This worthless slave—”

“I don’t like worthless slaves,” I said, just to fuck with her. “I prefer slaves who are worth something.”

She finally met my gaze. Her eyes were large and expressive, but I couldn’t tell their color in the dim room. Across the chamber, a whip cracked and a woman shrieked. She’d been bleeding for half an hour now. Fucking Chicago. If it wasn’t fucked up, they weren’t into it. Although Berlin was worse, much worse.

“How long?” I asked. “How long do I get to play with your Master’s worthless slave?”

Her arms curved delicately at her sides. She really was lovely. Beautiful. I dealt in art. I recognized beauty when I saw it.

“My Master didn’t say how long. I suppose it’s up to you,” she said. “Afterward, I have to tell him all about it, what you did to me and how it made me feel.”

“Is that so? How kinky and dangerous. Where’s this Master of yours?”

If my hands weren’t clenched into fists, I would have put air quotes around the “Master.” The collared slave girl looked over her shoulder and I knew immediately who her Master was. Lip piercings, leather pants, goatee, theatrical sneer. He was trying hard to be the kinkiest dude in the room. The girl in front of me was doing it too, pushing the kinky envelope as some form of self-identity.

By contrast, I wore a suit and was clean shaven. No piercings. I couldn’t be bothered with the expected kink uniform. I wore what I liked, and did what I liked. Hit on women I liked. This was a new thing, being hit on by someone else’s slave.

Her “Master” was in his mid-twenties, like her, and I didn’t need the leather pants or scruffy goatee to tell me the guy was a dick. I only needed to look at the girl in front of me. She’d started to tremble. I noticed it because I was staring at her breasts. Ah, those breasts.

What to do now? I wanted to lecture her like the old, wise, unpierced Dominant I was. I wanted to scold her about sanity and self-preservation. I did neither of those things.

“Why did you choose me?” I asked instead.

I knew why she’d chosen me. Everyone else in this place looked terrifying. Silly, reckless sub, putting herself at risk to titillate her Master. It didn’t even occur to her that I might be terrifying too...

What scene did you enjoy the most when writing your story?

I loved writing the scene where Molly's brothers give Jake the horse to chase after her. They want her to stay close to home. If getting her laid will do it, they're in!

Is your story part of a series or connected to any of your other books? 

Boots and Wings is part of the Ugly Stick Saloon series. You'll revisit characters from other stories in the series.

If your story came with a warning label, what would it say? One cowgirl and two fly boys makes for heat that will leave you fanning yourself and give you wings to fly to the heavens.

Read an Excerpt from Myla Jackson's - Boots and Wings:

Molly toed off her boots and sat on a boulder at the pool’s edge, dangling her feet in the cool water, watching the ripples spread out across the surface.

Her brother’s words came back to her.

What about the Maddox brothers?

That was a question she had posed to herself a dozen times. She’d been around them for years, hanging out a the Ugly Stick Saloon. They’d danced together, and partied when the saloon had special events. Tucker and Jake were brothers, but as different as night and day.

Tucker was the levelheaded, sweet and considerate man a girl could see herself marrying. Oh, and he was an excellent kisser, and his slow, steady foreplay stirred her insides to the point, she’d wanted to strip naked and push him out of that sweet comfort zone. He’d only gone to second base, feeling up her breasts before he stepped away and ended the night, saying he wanted her to be sure about them before they went any further. Yeah, he was sweet, and those big, rough hands…Wowza.

Now, Jake was the kind of man mamma’s warned their daughters about and daddies stood at the front door with their shotguns to keep away. He made her core ignite. One of the dates she’d been on with him had ended abruptly when her brother, Tanner, drove up behind them at Lookout Point and put the kibosh on a backseat quickie. Yeah, her brothers had a habit showing up at the wrong time.

And what killed her was that the dates had been a couple weeks ago. Neither Jake nor Tucker had called to claim another. And maybe that was a good thing. At some point, she’d have to choose between the two of them and she wasn’t so sure she could.

On the one hand, Jake was the devil of a temptation. On the other hand…Tucker’s hands made her want to do all kinds of naughty to get him to shake out of that gentleman mode and make crazy monkey sex with her.

The thought of the two men made the day warmer to the point Molly pulled her tank top out of the waistband of her jeans and flapped the hem to stir up a breeze against her heated skin.

“Oh, what the heck.” She yanked the top over her head and dropped it beside her on the boulder. The cool, clear water below beckoned and she shucked the rest of her clothes down to the bathing suit she’d been born with.

Deliciously naked, she dove into the water, the cool liquid caressing her hot body, bringing her outer temperature down while her core flamed. Nothing was better than skinny-dipping unless it was skinny-dipping with a really hot guy.


What scene did you enjoy the most when writing your story? 

My favourite scene was when the heroine was trying to seduce the hero at the Pin Up photo shoot. I love how he turns it around on her, takes control, and lets her know he’s in to playing games too, just far kinkier ones than she thought he liked to play.

If your story came with a warning label, what would it say?

Shackles, blindfolds and ropes, oh my…she’s not in Kansas anymore.

Is your story part of a series or connected to any of your other books? 

Pin Me Up Proper is the second book in my Breaking the Rules series. My best-selling Novella Hold Me Down Hard is the first, and Tie Me Down tight and Fire Me Up Fast will be following.

Read an Excerpt from PIN ME UP PROPER:

Janie paced inside her condo, her nerves on complete edge. She pulled back the curtain for the hundredth time, keeping an eye out for Kaden’s vehicle, even though she had no idea what he drove.

“What is the matter with you?” Maria asked. “I’ve never seen you like this before.”

She turned to face her friend and wiped her damp hands on the floral dress covering her vintage bikini. “I know. It’s because I don’t know what’s really going on. The last thing Kaden told me after the shoot was to wear my pinup costume tonight, but from the way he was talking and the things he was saying, I didn’t get the impression that we were doing another shoot.”

“Then what are you doing?”

Janie gave a slow shake of her head. “I don’t know.”

“Well, let’s think about it.” Maria took a sip of her soda, then placed it onto the coffee table. “You seduced him, right?” When Janie nodded, Maria continued with, “And he knows you want him?”

“I’m pretty sure.”

Maria blinked. “Pretty sure?”

Janie gave her a wide-eyed look and a sketchy nod.

Shaking her head, Maria said, “So you came on strong, and then he tells you he wants to teach you how to properly behave, correct?”


She grinned. “Have you ever been spanked, Janie?”

As Janie thought about that, her heart rose into her throat. “What are you talking about?” Then her mouth formed a surprised little “o”. “Do you mean spanking as in, BDSM?”

Maria casually rolled one shoulder. “My guess is that he likes to be the aggressor, and he wants to teach his little pinup girl a thing or two about discipline.” She stretched out on the sofa and tucked her feet under the accent pillow. “I envy you, because I think he has some very kinky things in store for your tonight.”

“But you know I like to be the one in charge.” Janie twisted her hands together and paced around the room. She’d read her share of romance novels and erotica. She’d even gone as far as to do a little surfing on the internet about it, just for curiosity sake, of course, but in everything she’d read, one thing stood out. Trust between the participants. The thought of allowing someone to take control of her, either in or out of the bedroom, frightened her. Thoughts of her father and brother and their emotional abuse rushed in, reminding her how scared and vulnerable they’d made her feel. When she’d left home, she closed herself off and had sworn never to be put in that position again.

Maria’s face softened, her eyes full of understanding. As her roommate and best friend for the past three years, Maria would know what was going on inside Janie’s head. She jumped up from the sofa and gave Janie a comforting hug. “Come on, I’m sure you don’t have anything to worry about. I just know you’re going to have a fabulous night.”

“I don’t know, Maria…”

“Stop fretting, you’ll give yourself wrinkles.” Her eyes moved over Janie’s face. “Yup, there’s a new one. It’s a damn ugly, too,” she teased. Despite the situation, Janie couldn’t help but smile. “Everything is going to be fine,” Maria assured her. “Besides, for all I know, maybe he really is planning on taking you back to his place to play video games.”

Janie gave a slow shake of her head and paced back to the window. “I don’t think so. I think we all pegged him wrong.”

“He’s not a nerdy gamer?”

“I think he’s been flying under the radar and keeping a low profile.” She thought about the command in his tone and the way her body had reacted when he’d touched her. Oh yeah, there was definitely something about this guy that frightened her as much as it intrigued her.

The sound of a vehicle pulling into the driveway caught her attention. She ran to the hallway mirror to check her lipstick, then gave herself a once-over. “Do I look okay?” she asked Maria as she pressed her lips together to smooth her cherry red lipstick.

“You’re gorgeous. Now relax and go have some fun.”

A moment later, the doorbell rang, and she exhaled slowly to get herself under control before she opened it. Maria pulled back the curtain to get a glimpse of him on their stoop as Janie made her way into the foyer.

“Kaden,” she said when she pulled the door open and found him standing there, looking so damn sexy in his jeans and button down dress shirt that it took two locked knees to keep herself upright. Most times, his hair fell into his face, but tonight, with it slicked back, it gave her an unobstructed view of his features. She took in the hard angles of his jaw and the intensity in his steel gray eyes.

“Janie,” he said, his tone deeper than she remembered it.

“Let me just grab my purse,” she said, hoping her voice didn’t sound as shaky as she felt. She darted into the living room, to where Maria was standing, her mouth hanging open.

“Holy shit, Janie,” she whispered. “He’s fucking hot. Hotter than any guy you’ve ever been out with.”

“I know.”

“Now I really am jealous.”

A nervous, yet excited giggle climbed into Janie’s throat, and she pressed her fingers to her lips to hush her friend. “Shhh…”

“I’m waiting up,” Maria said. “I want to hear all the details.”

Janie hurried back to the front foyer where Kaden stood waiting for her. Her hands trembled, and it took all her effort to keep her gaze on his face and off the bulge his jeans hugged so nicely.

My God he was hot.

His shirt accentuated broad shoulders, tight abdominals, and a body that had her thighs quivering. But not only was he hot, he looked rugged and dangerous, more lethal than any MMA fighter.

How did she not see this before?

What scene did you enjoy the most when writing your story?

One of the big sex scenes in the middle with all four characters was a lot of fun to write, but then I also enjoyed letting Bethany spend time alone with each of her guys. Just as Bethany wouldn't be able to pick her favorite man, I don't think I can pick a favorite scene, either.

Is your story part of a series or connected to any of your other books?

Yes, it's 2.5 in the Chattanooga Supernaturals, and 4.5 in Kirsten O'Shea's Universe. However, all of my paranormal romance books can be read as a stand-alone, so you'll be fine if you haven't read the other books.

If your story came with a warning label, what would it say?

Warning: Two werewolves, an intense wereleopard, and a woman who thinks she's ready to handle three men in bed at once. So much hot kinky goodness, you may need an extra fan.

Read an Excerpt from ACCEPTABLE RISK:

The rope circled the base of her right breast and she closed her eyes, unable to watch as Ranger wound it around and around, tighter and tighter.

“We can all smell how turned on you are. Don’t hide from us,” Jonathan told her, his voice bordering on a growl, and full of sexual heat. He would like this, he was a boob man, after all.

“Not hiding from you, just don’t want to watch you doing it. It’s too much — seeing and feeling at the same time.”

Ranger tucked the end of the rope through the coils and pulled it even tighter before he moved to her left breast. Jonathan once again held her breast in place as Ranger started, and Bethany’s legs spread and her hips moved in reaction. God, the rope might be uncomfortable and just at the point of painful, but she was so damned horny she might self-combust.

“She’s being so good, I think she needs a reward,” Jonathan said as he let go of her breast and moved between her legs to place soft kisses on her inner thighs with the promise of doing so much more with his mouth.

Soft rope also circled her wrists, and her arms were bound to the headboard. She groaned as the rope was wound around her breast again and again, plumping it up, forcing more blood into it.

When Ranger finished this time, he tucked the rope to keep it tight, and then looped it behind her neck and back down, securing it to the rope around her right breast, and Bethany gasped and fought the ropes at her wrists.

“Open your eyes and look at Mac,” Ranger ordered, and her eyelids flew open at his command. She lifted her head and her gaze met Mac’s as he sat in the corner, sprawled on a chair with his cock out of his jeans as he slowly jacked himself off. Bethany could almost see the wolf in his eyes as he watched, so intent, so focused.

“He’s going to take care of you when Jonathan and I are finished. He’ll kiss the rope marks away, caress the whip marks, and then he’ll fuck your brains out. He may not be a Dom, and may not enjoy delivering pain, but he thoroughly enjoys working someone over when they’re so exhausted and sore they don’t want to see another cock for months.”

Mac’s smirk told her he didn’t disagree with Ranger’s words, and she closed her eyes again and settled her head on the bed. So many emotions swirled in her head she couldn’t begin to process them on top of the physical sensation of the rope around her breasts, Ranger’s fingers pinching and twisting her nipples, and Jonathan sucking her clit.

Excerpt & #Giveaway ~ The Dark Side of Stardom (Frame of Reference, 2) by Christopher Stone ~~ #GLBT Romance

Fame is fickle, and stardom's flip side harbors and reflects darkness. 

Stardom on a network situation comedy had been Grant Jackson's lifelong dream. Ambitious, young, sexy, and willing to do almost anything, Grant makes his dream come true at age twenty-three. When we meet him, in 2004, Grant Jackson is a star of NBC-TV's "Our House". The reality of television stardom is heady and intoxicating. As a songwriter once put it, "The sound of applause is delicious, it's a thrill to have the world at your feet." And Grant's newfound celebrity lives up to his expectations: The money, the recognition, striving for creative excellence and rating numbers every week. But stardom's flip side harbors and reflects darkness. The knives are always out. One of Grant's co-stars harbors a cocaine addiction. Another co-star masks a career-busting sexual secret---as does Grant Jackson himself.

Listen to Chapter One of 'The Dark Side of Stardom' by Christopher Stone:

Read an Excerpt:

A minute later, Grant swiped the card key twice before the light on the suite door changed from red to green and they entered.
          “What’s your poison?” Grant asked, crossing to the bar.
          Ralph smiled a killer, pretty-boy smile – one that showed off his dimples. It was new to Grant, and it was devastatingly attractive. Grant imagined Ralph using that very look to pick-up sex partners in singles bars. “Just a brewsky. You know what they say. ‘Never mix, never worry.’”
          From the refrigerator, Grant grabbed a Lone Star longneck for Ralph. He got a bottle of water for himself. “A glass?” he asked.
          “No, thanks,” Ralph said, unleashing that certain smile once more. “This is Texas. We drink from the bottle.”
          Now it was Grant’s turn to smile. “Got it,” he said, handing off the longneck to Ralph. “Please make yourself at home.”
          Ralph sat on the love seat.
          Grant handed him a cocktail napkin, and then sat beside him. “You, the mayor, everyone, have been so wonderful to me,” he told Ralph. “I don’t know how to thank you.”
          “Just doing our jobs. But you made it easy – a pleasure,” Ralph said, taking a long swallow from the brewsky. “You’re nice, easy-going. We’ve hosted some real a-holes: demanding pricks, impossible to please.”
          “I know what you mean,” Grant offered. “We had a few guest stars – old timers who began their careers in Hollywood back when they waited upon stars, hand and foot.”
          For a beat too long, Ralph stared into Grant’s glacial blues. “Well, you’ve been a great guest. The perfect Grand Marshal.”
          “If you ever get to Hollywood –“ Grant began.
          “I’d like to,” Ralph said, interrupting him. “I love Texas, born and raised here. It’s a big state, but not a perfect one. “ Suddenly, surprisingly, Ralph placed a hand on Grant’s knee. “Some things are hard here. People don’t understand.”
          Grant did not understand. Why is his hand firmly on my knee? Is this just some good-old-boy thing, or is Ralphie-Boy coming on to me?
          Ralph’s hand swept upward from Grant’s knee to the top of his thigh. There was a quick squeeze. Grant jolted back.
          “I’m sorry if I misread you,” Ralph said, removing his hand from Grant’s thigh.
          Misread? What was there to misread? I was expressing gratitude, not asking you for a quickie roll in the Texas hay. That’s what Grant thought. But he said, “No problem.”
          Misinterpreting Grant’s response as encouragement, Ralph returned his hand to Grant’s thigh.
          “You still don’t understand,” Grant said, hoping to set Ralph straight without embarrassing him. “You, me. It isn’t happening.”
          Ralph removed his hand as quickly as if he had put it on a blazing stovetop burner. “Sorry. Didn’t mean to offend you.”
          “You didn’t,” Grant said. “In truth, I’m flattered.”
          “If you’re not offended, then why?” Ralph said tentatively. “You’re so hot.”
          He feared Ralph might move in for a kiss. To his relief, he didn’t.
          “It’s just that…well, for many reasons – nothing can happen.”
          “I understand,” Ralph said, backing off.
          Grant was sure Ralph did not understand. I’m gay and you are desirable, big time. But I’m committed to somebody. If I weren’t, we’d be headed to the bedroom.
          “Again. Thanks for everything.”

          “You’re so welcome. You were the best Grand Marshal ever, and the hottest,” he added, winking, before rising to leave.

Praise for 'The Dark Side of Stardom' by Christopher Stone:

"I really loved this book! It is quite the page-turner, between wondering if Grant, a former porn star, is going to be forced out of the closet, to the dramas he faces working on a legitimate television sitcom. Not only that, but it is a very emotionally involving story. We truly care about Grant and his long-term partner Cam, so we want them and their relationship to succeed every step of the way. Since we care about them so much, it’s the small details of their lives that truly make the story what it is. I also really loved the ambiguous ending, and am hoping that the author will make it a trilogy! A fun, sexy exploration of Hollywood life."- Rebecca VanDusen, Amazon Reviewer "The Dark Side of Stardom kept my attention from start to finish. Dealing with issues of fame, love, and sexuality from a unique perspective, it sheds light in areas that often remain dark and unspoken of. A perfect book for a rainy day, or whatever the weather for that matter. I highly recommend it.”- Rich Kendall, author of 'The Road to Elmira'

Praise for 'Frame of Reference' by Christopher Stone:

"This book was recommended by one of my gay friends and I must admit, as a straight lady, I wasn't sure it was something I would be interested in reading. Glad I took the plunge. Interesting characters, in an interesting Hollywood setting that the writer is very familiar with. I loved the references, by the main character, to all the TV. and movies. Clearly, Mr. Stone has done his homework. The sex scenes, (while a bit too much information for me!) will be much appreciated by the appropriate audience - in other words, quite hot! Still, no romance novel is worth its salt without a good story line. Again, Mr. Stone has shown his mettle. The characters are well developed and the story interesting as a young man fights his way to the top of the heap. Bring on the next book, sequel!"- Sharyn St.Clair, Amazon Reviewer

"I only have good things to say about this book from a literary point of view. The characters are well-developed and Christopher Stone’s writing style is superb. I enjoyed going with Grant on his journey of self-discovery and look forward to seeing what happens next in his life. In case the description of the book isn’t clear enough, this is a gay romance, so readers should not be surprised about the fact that the sex scenes are between two or more men. The sex scenes are not the whole of the book, and they are not overly-explicit, but they are more explicit than the average romance novel. I truly enjoyed this offering by Christopher Stone, and I will definitely be putting him on my list of authors to look for in the future."- Brriske, Paranormal Romance & Authors That Rock

"This book is definitely not in a genre I ordinarily read, so when a friend recommended it to me, I was admittedly a little skeptical. Skepticism, however, soon turned into genuine delight. Using an almost Christopher Isherwood, I-am-a-camera-like precision, Stone expertly evokes the world of a young gay man from a small town who struggles to establish himself as an actor in Hollywood. Written vividly and wryly, the book is by turns touching, exciting, erotic and dark, and is always compelling. The characters were full-bodied (in more ways than one!) the dialogue was realistic, the situations off-beat and interesting. When I finished the book, my first thought was, "Bring on the sequel!" I can give "Frame of Reference" no higher praise than that!"- Robert J. Van Dusen, Amazon Reviewer

"I stumbled on Frame of Reference at the nail salon. A lady was reading it and would read passages to the entire shop. So, I bought the book. What an eye opener into the world of gay young men. Being raised in Hollywood as a non-gay, I had no idea about this vibrant subculture. Being mature and growing up in a movie family, I understood all the references to movie stars, TV shows, and cinema. Do read it, you won't be able to put it down!"- Dee Lewis, Amazon Reviewer

About Christopher Stone:

Born in Bronx, New York, and raised in Fresno, California, Christopher Stone’s early years were dominated by school, watching television and motion pictures, bicycling, skating, and reading avidly. Summers were spent swimming, and doing whatever it took to survive the oppressive San Joaquin Valley heat. But he also remembers fondly the yearly summer trips to New York, to visit family and friends – and to see Broadway shows.

Christopher left Fresno, for Hollywood, California, during his college years after being accepted into the Writers Guild of America’s Open Door Program, a two-year, scholarship, training ground for aspiring screen and television writers. As it happened, rather than a teleplay or screenwriting gig, his first professional writing job was in journalism – as the Los Angeles Editor for Stage Door, at that time, Canada’s equivalent of the U.S. entertainment trade weekly, Variety. Christopher would later use his Writers Guild of America training to co-author and sell the original screenplay, The Living Legend, with Jon Mercedes III, to the Erin Organization, and later, and also with Mercedes, to write two seasons of The Party Game, a Canadian TV game show.

As a young freelance entertainment journalist, he contributed to many Los Angeles-based publications, among them The Advocate, for which he wrote a breezy film column, “Reeling ‘Round,” and the Los Angeles Free Press. During this time, he became a member of the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle. Christopher dipped his toes into the world of motion picture advertising and publicity, as assistant to the West Coast Director of Advertising and Publicity for Cinerama Releasing Corporation, in Beverly Hills. At the same time, he also did special advertising and publicity projects for 20th Century-Fox.

Christopher went on to become an Account Executive for David Wallace & Company, a public relations firm specializing in entertainment accounts – and located on West Hollywood’s legendary Sunset Strip. Returning to his first love, writing, Christopher became a full time freelance contributor to national consumer publications including Us, Good Housekeeping, Family Circle, McCall’s, In Cinema, and The National Enquirer, among others. Many of his stories were syndicated worldwide by the New York Times Syndication Corp.

Another important area of endeavor for Christopher Stone was Re-Creating Your Self. A Blueprint for Personal Change that he first developed for himself, the journalist went on to teach the principles and processes of Re-Creating Your Self to others – first, in private sessions, later, in workshops and seminars, and, finally, for California State University Extended Education. Eventually, one of his students suggested he write a book version. Re-Creating Your Self was first published in hardcover by Metamorphous Press, and subsequently published in a trade paperback edition by Hay House. It has since been published in Spanish, Swedish and Hebrew language editions.

When not writing, Christopher used his longtime interest in, and study of, metaphysics, to teach meditation and psychic development classes – first in Beverly Hills, then later, in Manhattan Beach. He went on to co-author, with Mary Sheldon, four novellas for a Japanese educational publisher, and then, also with Mary Sheldon, the highly successful The Meditation Journal trilogy of hardcover books. Subsequently, he returned to journalism, this time, contributing hundreds of print and online entertainment features, columns and reviews to magazines and websites.  For eight years, Christopher was the Box-office Columnist for MatchFlick.com, a popular online motion picture site.

In his private life, Christopher Stone met David M. Stoebner on May 17, 1994, and they have been together ever since. In 2008, they were married in Los Angeles. They share a home with their three pets in Coastal Los Angeles County. In 2013, Christopher’s pet project has been transforming their rarely used kitchen table area into a killer, retro 1950s Diner Nook, complete with a 1952 Seeburg Table Top jukebox, a neon diner sign, and a malt machine.

 Christopher’s first novel, Frame of Reference was e and print published, in fall 2012, by MLR Press. A short story, Sweet Homo Alabama was published by MLR Press, December 19, 2012. Stone spent much of 2013 writing Frame of Reference 2: The Dark Side of Stardom, a sequel novel to Frame of Reference, as well as, Abracadabra, and a short story, published at Halloween. But the indefatigable scribe also found time to contribute weekly reviews, columns and interviews to Queer Town Abbey.

Christopher is currently writing Going and Coming, a novel laced with metaphysical themes, and wrapped around the character of Dr. Minnow Saint James, a highly successful Past Life Regression Therapist, and the author of a best-selling nonfiction book. Christopher hopes Going and Coming will launch a series of Dr. Minnow Saint James Metaphysical Adventures novels. As of this writing, Going and Coming is tentatively scheduled for November 2015 publication, by MLR Press.

On a personal note, Christopher and David adopted a five-month-old Yellow Lab puppy, Sammy (Samantha Stevens), on February 6, following the sudden passing of their beloved Yellow Lab, Gracie, on January 22.

Make Me Whole

by R.C. Matthews

Genre: Romantic Suspense/Menage

About the Book:

For Jake Hanson, it was the perfect solution to a deep darkness. The accident took more than the use of his legs; it took everything that made him feel like a man. He needs their ménage. It puts him on the path to healing. With Jessie and Chad, he can conquer anything…he thinks.

Jessica Hanson did it all for her husband, to make him feel whole again. She didn’t want a threesome. At least, that’s what she believed in the beginning. But when she realizes that she can’t imagine life without both her husband and his best friend by her side, she’ll question everything she thought completed her.

FBI agent Chad Wilson couldn’t believe he agreed to his best friend’s proposal. There were too many things beyond his control that could go wrong. But when things go right, he is forced to admit to the best months of his life. Yet on the heels of his greatest joy comes his greatest fear. He’s endangered them all, and the clock is ticking.

They’ll push the boundaries and blur the lines, coming face to face with one of life’s hardest truths: Sometimes to become whole, you have to break.
