ONCE BURNED by L.A. Witt Blog Tour

About Once Burned

Captain Mark Thomas’s world has been tossed on its head: A long overdue but still unexpected divorce. A promotion out of left field. Last-second orders to a ship where careers go to die. As the dust settles in his new home, he barely recognizes his life, but he sure recognizes the loneliness creeping in.

Diego Ramírez wants nothing to do with the military or its men. Not after the Navy burned him both literally and figuratively, costing him his career, his health, and ultimately his green card. Now working illegally in an Anchor Point bar, he keeps the military and its personnel at arm’s length.

But after a single moment of eye contact across the bar, Mark and Diego can’t resist each other. As a one-night stand quickly turns into more, Diego knows he’s playing with fire. Now he can stick around and let things with Mark inevitably fall apart, or he can run like hell and wonder what might have been. One way or another, Diego knows he’s about to get burned. Again.

50% of the author’s royalties from this book will be donated to charities supporting US military veterans who have been deported or are at risk of deportation.

What’s Coming Up Next?

So with the release of Once Burned, we’re 6 books into an 8 book series. The last two books – Wash Out and Sink or Swim – will be out in the next couple of months.

Which means… Anchor Point is over! So… what next?

As always, the answer to that is: lots of stuff.

In November, my Queered Classic contribution, Rabi & Matthew, will be released. This is a queered, subverted version of Romeo & Juliet, and I’m super excited about it because I love my boys. (And I can’t wait to show y’all the cover because it’s awesome.)

I’m 2/3 through a trilogy of short novels following two guys as they meet on vacation. If you saw me tweeting in February about needing to dash off to Rome to refresh my memory for a book, that would be book 2! The first two books are being edited, the third is being written, and I’m hoping to release them this summer.

Cari Z and I have been busily working on our next romantic suspense novel, which was supposed to be a standalone but has demanded a sequel. I’m starting to think Cari and I are incapable of writing standalones. Probably because we’re so mean to our characters, it takes a few books to resolve everything. Details on this book (and its sequel) will be along, but be ready to buckle up for a wild ride!

I’m also working on a new series of romantic military suspense, which doesn’t currently have a title, and an M/F romantic suspense series. There…will be a lot of suspense. Plenty of fluffy contemporaries too—I’m working on one as we speak—but lots of suspense coming up.

What about sequels? There are always sequels on the horizon. A new Wilde’s book, one of two sequels to If The Seas Catch Fire, the sequel to Running With Scissors—no dates on those yet, but they’re coming.

So basically the short answer is, as always, that I’m working on a whole bunch of projects, and they will be unleashed sooooooon. Stay tuned!

About Anchor Point

Welcome to Anchor Point!

Nestled on the northern coast of Oregon, this small town is home to Naval Air Station Adams. On base, you’ll find freshly minted Sailors who’ve just graduated boot camp, salty officers counting down till retirement, grounded pilots who’ve landed behind desks, and everyone in between—and they’re all looking for love. Well, not all of them, but that won’t stop love from finding them.

So pull up a barstool, grab a beer, and get ready for some sea stories as these men in uniform—or not—navigate the waters of love and life in the military.

Anchor Point stories can be enjoyed in any order. Hop in wherever you'd like!

About LA Witt

L.A. Witt is an abnormal M/M romance writer who has finally been released from the purgatorial corn maze of Omaha, Nebraska, and now spends her time on the southwestern coast of Spain. In between wondering how she didn’t lose her mind in Omaha, she explores the country with her husband, several clairvoyant hamsters, and an ever-growing herd of rabid plot bunnies. She also has substantially more time on her hands these days, as she has recruited a small army of mercenaries to search South America for her nemesis, romance author Lauren Gallagher, but don’t tell Lauren. And definitely don’t tell Lori A. Witt or Ann Gallagher. Neither of those twits can keep their mouths shut…

L. A.’s backlist is available on her website, and updates (as well as random thoughts and the odd snarky comment) can be found on her blog or on Twitter (@GallagherWitt).
