No Souvenirs

No Souvenirs came out yesterday and wow. Thanks, guys. It's making best seller lists at Amazon and Books on Board and My Bookstore and More. I'm so glad because it felt like it really worked. I'm glad people were excited about Kim's story. He was fun to write, pairing him with an opposite (yet not) like Shane made for some interesting sparks.

I've been thrilled with the reviews so far. The one at Dear Author couldn't have been more flattering if my mother had written it. (Come to think of it, my mother would have probably been a whole lot less flattering. She's pretty critical in her reviews of anything--not just me. No, she's not Mrs. Giggles.)

I'd insert the cover image, but I am a technological failure today and can't make that work.
So if there's anyone who hasn't grabbed it and is looking, here's one of the places you can find it.

No Souvenirs

Thanks again so much to everyone who's been willing to plunk down some hard-to-come-by cash to hang out with my characters. I hope I gave you a good read.

Due to date/timezones differences, I've been checking up Samhain three times a day since the 8th [your time] to see if it was out yet...

I bought it, stayed up WAAAAY too late last night to finish it, and then started re-reading it this morning while walking to work. Yes, I was *that* particular pedestrian hazard.

As always the book was fabulous. I loved Kim and I thought Shane was adorable. Their relationship was explosive and I'm sure they'll keep each other on their toes for years to come.

Well done!

P.S....
(replying to myself, how gauche!) I'm 2/3 through and it's GREAT! As always, there's breadth and depth here; I just got a laugh (not the first)...love how you can mix humour and serious stuff.

Can I tell you how much I love your work, because I LOVE your work! I feel dumb how long it took me to click in that Jae Sun was Dr. Kim from CC but I was glad when I did. Before this story, I'd gotten DiD, CS, CC, and CR in E-book, and own CC & DiD in print.

I love how the issues each couple faces are hard real life ones that affect their character and how they function as people. I love the comedy you infuse your writing with and how your troubled characters move past their dark hours into a good future. I also love those pivotal sex scenes (The one after the club in DiD, The birthday sex in CC) that really re-define the relationship. But mostly, I love how all of your characters are connected and how each love story is so different.

Your couples are also amazing. I have a hard time choosing a favorite, but it usually goes to Aaron & Joey, though Noah and Cam are right at their heels. Have you ever done deleted scenes for Noah & Cam?

You are an inspiration and I love your style (seriously: why are girls so much better at this then men?) and I consider you my writing hero.

Thank you so much for sharing your talents!

As an avid reader (and wannabe writer of m/m) I love finding an author I've never read before. The first book of yours I read was Chasing Smoke and since then I've read them all (seven?) finishing up with "No Souvenirs".

You've just joined my list of :When's the next book coming" authors (along with Josh Lanyon and Z.A. Maxfield. Love your stories, love your characters.

But liking fell into that further category when I read this bit: "He was going to have to apologize for laughing at that article on the vomeronasal organ in adult humans because this had to be pheromones.", [K. A. Mitchell, No Souvenirs]

It's so nice to find an author who treats the reader (and their characters) as people with brains! (Mind you I had to look up the vomeronasal, but it was worth it).

I Loved "Regularly Scheduled Life" too. It's a pity we already have Tony and Jack as an item, as that would have been an interesting story to read and poor Daniel. What is to become of him!

Thanks for giving me some great reading moments.
