Catching Kit (m/m paranormal)

He was supposed to trap him—not fall in love.

Catching Kit my first contemporary m/m paranormal, is now available on


And you can buy it with an awesome 25% discount from Loose Id and All Romance

Info: When government agent and Ethereal Being hunter, Denny, has to imprison an elf in his garage overnight, his life spins out of control. Caught and cuffed on the London Underground, Kit shatters everything Denny’s been taught about elves. How can Kit be a dangerous, mind-reading cipher who preys on human emotions? Kit’s gorgeous and funny, he’s got a cute arse. He even shares Denny’s quiet kinks for bondage and cross-dressing. Or so Kit claims.

When Kit wiles his way into Denny’s house for a session of mind-blowing sex, the elf seems too good to be true–till reality strikes. Denny’s fucked an elf. A prisoner in his charge. If he doesn’t take Kit to the containment depot he’s in big trouble, and Kit’s about to drop an equally devastating bombshell. The elf’s been searching a thousand years for a bloke like Denny. He ‘gets’ Denny’s kinks, adores role play and women’s panties, and now he needs Denny’s love to survive.

Is Kit preying on Denny’s emotions, or can Denny trust him? If so, dare Denny break the law and gamble his life to save the Ethereal Being in his bed?"

Running in to *wave* like a mad thing

Agh!!  Small apology to many of you for being so behind on emails, LJ etc.!  I've been completely manic here the past few weeks (new release...and then, signing a contract for a new novella that needs to be delivered by the start of Sept. Agh! AND WHY DOES MY IDEA OF A SIMPLE PLOT INVOLVED TIME TRAVEL???  I needz my head examined.) 'tis a shame, as I've got loads of fandom stuff I'm dying to post about (tennis, Sherlock Holmes, Star Trek - I finally caught up with the new movies for both - Game of Thrones, NCIS, etc. etc.)  But...anyway, time will come for all that soon.  I hope!

I also took a video last night of a little newt in my parents in law's pond. Must find my cable and upload :D
I am proud to reveal the beautiful cover by Shobana Appavu for my forthcoming release, Catching Kit, coming from Loose Id on 24th July. (Um, the Loose Id website is currently down, though...hopefully all the buy-it-now linkies will start working soon!)

"When elf-hunter, Denny, catches Kit, keeping him caged is tricky. The elf shares his love of BDSM and cross-dressing and steals his heart. Can Denny trust Kit and dare he gamble his life to save him?"

Random blokes hugging. Or something.

I have been monumentally hopeless with LJ lately (silly guilt trips about not having fic to post etc., and not knowing what else to say) so I’ve had this revolutionary new idea. What if I, you know, try and use LJ as a journal? Kind of radical, huh? And to make it really easy for simple folk like myself, I will use bullet points to arrange the highlights of my week! Go me!

So, here we go! Five happy things in my life, as of now!
1. I’ve finally joined the e-book revolution and am the owner of a shiny Kindle touch! (yeah, I know, seeing as I’ve got two e-books published, I’m kind of slow...but mainly poor and slow.) Also I’ve been waiting for the Touch as I wanted the ‘read to me’ function. And now I use it...chiefly to read fanfic in bed! Go me!!

2. I’ve set up a new target scheme for my writing – 1000 words a day, or 7000 a week. Okay, I can do much more than that on a good day/week, but will try and stick to that as a minimum for my drafting of Greenwood 3, and hopefully I’ll have a complete manuscript awaiting edit by the time I go to Italy, end of July. Hurrah!

3. The release date for Catching Kit, my first paranormal contemporary, has been brought forward to July 24th! Very excited! Just filled in my art and blurbs form. Here’s a little teaser of what it’s all about (not my blurbs, but my original little sales pitch.)

Catching Kit by Kay Berrisford - published by Loose Id, 24th July 2012.

When government Ethereal Being catcher, Denny, has to store an elf in his garage overnight, his life spins out of control. Kit shatters everything Denny’s been taught about elves. Not only is he clearly sentient, he’s gorgeous, he’s got a cute arse, and he claims to share Denny’s quiet kinks for bondage and cross-dressing.
When Kit wiles his way into Denny’s house for a session of mind-blowing sex, the elf seems too good to be true. Can Denny trust him? And if so, dare he break the law and gamble his life to save the Ethereal Being in his bed?

Genre: LGBT m/m Paranormal with BDSM theme and elements
Word Count: 35915

4. I have Heidi Belleau and Violetta Vane on my blog!!!! Go there now

5. FANDOM FUN! Season 6 of Lewis continues to be SLASHTASTIC. So far this series, Laura Hobson seems to have gone from being potential love interest for Robbie to NO.1 LEWIS/HATHAWAY FANGIRL SLASHER!!! Won’t post any more details, as there’s not spoiler warnings on this, but am much amused. Must check out fic.

6. SOCCER AID!! I’m sure much fangirl squee has already been spilled over his, and I’m intending to catch up with it all ASAP. But for now, I leave you with the pictorial highlights of MARK OWEN IN SHORTS AND BLOKES HUGGING! (pics courtesy of markowendaily).


A few more pics - cut to be vaguely polite ;)Collapse )
