Post World Cup depression? No worries-Offside is coming!

I have to be the best.  I am the best.  I’m quick.  I’m strong.  I’m smart.  I’m the star keeper of my high school soccer team, and I’ve got major leagues scouting me.  As their captain, my teammates will do anything I say – on or off the field.  Girls practically beg to be added to my list of conquests.  As long as I manage to go pro for the best team in the world, I won’t have to worry about my father’s wrath.

I’m Thomas Malone, and I’ve seen to it that the world revolves around me.

There’s a new girl at school, and it’s just a matter of time before she gives in to my charm.  This one’s just a little more stubborn than most – she won’t even tell me her name!  She’s smart, too.  Maybe too smart.  I can’t let her in.  I can’t let anybody in.  I’m not too worried, but even I have to admit she’s interfering with my focus on the goal.

Dad’s not going to be happy about that.

Did I mention I love Shakespeare?  Yeah, I know.  I’m a walking contradiction.  According to the Bard, "Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.”   Somehow, I got all three.

Now how is anyone supposed to live up to that?


Offside by Shay Savage.  Coming Soon!


Bastian's Storm - Coming June 19th!

That's right!  Bastian's Storm is just about here!  If you haven't read the blurb or seen the cover, make sure you're sitting down....

Bastian’s Storm – Summary 

Sebastian Stark just isn’t cut out for normal life with a girlfriend in the hot and humid city of Miami.  All in all, he’d rather be back on the island where it was just the two of them, and he could keep everything in balance.  The bar down the street tempts him daily, but he’s determined to remain strong.  Adjusting to normal life is difficult, but Bastian is doing his best to keep himself together and the nightmares away.  Raine’s happy, and that’s what matters to him the most.

But not all nightmares can be driven away.

When Bastian’s former mentor comes into the picture and presents him with an ultimatum, Bastian slips into old habits.  Though he wants to shield Raine from the truth, the shady circumstances of his past form into a hurricane he can’t control.  In an effort to protect her, Bastian has no choice but to throw himself back into his old job – death match tournaments – just one last time.

Dropped into the arctic wilderness with weapons loaded, Bastian has to compete against representatives from major crime lords all over the states.  He’s studied his competition, he knows their weaknesses, and he’s ready to battle for the woman he loves.  There’s only one opponent in the mix that causes him any concern.  In order to guarantee Raine’s safety, Bastian will be pitted against the key hit man for Chicago’s largest mob family – a guy who’s known as one hell of a shot. 

A guy named Evan Arden.

The Bend Anthology


It's just about summer reading time!

If you aren't reading this yet, you should be.  You're not going to find a collection like this anywhere else!  Eight authors, 700+ pages of eight brand new stories unavailable anywhere else, and for $0.99.  You can't beat that.

To top it all off, you have The Savage Trainer's abs on the cover.

My contribution to this effort is called WORTH - the story of a Roman Tribunus and the slave woman who help him heal with a few "distractions." 

“Distract me,” I commanded again.

“I think you know everything about my life now, Faustus.”

“Then distract me another way,” I suggested.  I kept my eyes on her, and when she looked to me, I raised an eyebrow and smiled suggestively.

Aia turned to drop the cloth in the bowl, and I watched her eyes as she looked down my body.  From my supine position, the state of my cock was becoming noticeable.  Her blush returned, and she looked back to the bowl again.  Her hand trembled slightly as she wrung out the cloth and hung it beside the table.

Reaching out, I took her wrist and guided her hand to the hard length of my cock.

“How long will it be,” I asked with lowered voice, “until I can fill you with this?”

Indie Authors Unite!

Writers and readers alike, but mostly indie authors: this is a great article over all. Trends in eBooks vs. paperback, yada yada. You've probably read a lot of it before.

I want to focus on #7 in this list: "Successful indies are mentoring the next generator of writers."

Since August when I quit the day job and started doing this full time, I have been continually amazed at the amount of support I have received from other indie authors. They aren't fans; a lot of them have never read my stuff and wouldn't like it if they did. Still, they share their knowledge, their experiences, their tips and tricks. It's not just one or two individuals, but the whole community.

We could see each other as "the competition," but we don't. There is no "us and them." We are comrades. We are cohorts. We are all in this together.

If you are an indie author, veteran or newbie, embrace your community. They are a beautiful group of people. Help them. Consider their advice. Mentor them. Challenge their views. Share your knowledge and resources. Embrace the tried-and-true methods. Find new ways to succeed and share those ideas. In the long run, we'll all be better off for the effort.



Bastian's Storm

Title chose and writing in progress!  How about a quick little teaser for the sequel to Surviving Raine?

Sometimes it just boiled inside of me. 

The fucking anger. 

It was directed at nothing and everything.  It focused on the sites and the people around me because they were the constant reminder of what I had lost.  Sometimes it was even directed at the one person who understood and accepted me for the asshole I was.

Coming this summer!

Evan Arden Banner Contest Winners

Thank you so much to all who entered! I know why I don’t do contests like this more often – it’s so hard to choose a winner!! I had so many great entries, going through them all was both fabulous and really, really difficult! Ultimately, I had to make a choice. I also ended up ditching the last pose. Apparently no one really wants to see Evan with his clothes on. Weird.

Here are your winners!  Thanks to everyone who participated!

Evan Arden Banner Contest!

How about a little help for an artistically-challenged author?  :)

The Savage Trainer is going to accompany me on a couple of the book signings I'm doing this year, and I was trying to come up with something he could sign other than just the books where he's featured on the cover.  So, with nearly 2000 pictures of him on my computer (tihihihi), I figured some "Evan Arden" banners were a great way to go.

I've chosen 4 of my favorite pictures of TST as Evan Arden.  Here's what needs to be on each of the banners:

1. Either Evan Arden, Evan Arden Series, Otherwise Alone, Otherwise Occupied, or Otherwise Unharmed, or a logical combination of any of the above.
2. Shay Savage (or by Shay Savage)
3. A caption, preferably something said by Evan, from one of the books.

Once you decide which picture you would like to use, feel free to email me (shaysavage @ shaysavage.com) for a hi-res copy of the picture.

I'll pick a winner for each of the four pictures, who will receive a paperback copy of Otherwise Unharmed, signed by both me and TST!

Please like and share!  Spread the word!  Thank you all!
