Tearing Us Apart
Blogtour , Bookteaser / October 21, 2015

Tearing Us Apart is the new novel by Amanda Clay and falls in the Young Adult section. I have not actually read the book but was asked to be part of the blog tour for the book. Therefore I cannot give an opinion about the book, but I do plan to read it in the future. Julian Pham is surviving high school. Openly gay, flamboyantly goth, and Vietnamese-American, he’s just about as different as his Oklahoma City high school can tolerate. He has good friends and a supportive family, which helps, but lately his family is changing and his friends have troubles of their own. Julian is afraid he’s being left behind. Then he meets Duncan. The star of the school basketball team, Duncan has never crossed Julian’s social path. A fateful encounter one cold night brings the two young men together, igniting a romance that neither of them expected, and that both can scarcely believe. But Julian and Duncan are in different places.  Julian is happily out, unconcerned with others’ opinions. And Duncan, while he knows who he is, isn’t ready to face the challenges of living out loud. Even as the two grow closer together, Julian begins to…

Haunted Hotties Volume 1
Blogtour , Bookteaser / October 14, 2015

Haunted Hotties Volume 1 by editor Jaymi Lynn is an anthology especially for Halloween. Stories filled with ghosts, reapers, shifters and witches. A little for everyone, a whole rainbow of stories is included. I did not actually read the book but was asked to be a part of the blogtour for the book. Nine-Tenths of the Law is a story by Kieran Kelly in which Oliver discovers he has a haunted sex toy. In Bear Hugs by Laney Cairo, Martin’s boyfriend might be bear shifter and apparently that’s news to him. In Houdini’s Masquerade by Alex Cohen, when Lila meets a succubus, everything changes. In Præsidium by Katey Hawthorne, Thackeray needs helps from a witch who won’t help him until he explains his demon. In Black Cat by Jamie Jennings, when a cat shifter can see ghosts, Micah’s simple life suddenly isn’t. In Haunted Honeymoon by Aaron Michaels, Dylan and Jake seem to be sharing their non-honeymoon with a couple of ghosts. In And the Tarot Cards Said by Jacey Mills, an insistent ghost shouldn’t be too much to handle for psychic Vassily and his Tarot-reading assistant Ben. In Spirit Wolf by L.J. Hamlin, when Dawson rescues an injured wolf shifter, it’s not just his book that gets worked on while getting back to nature….

Lessons for Sleeping Dogs – Cambridge Fellows #12
Blogtour , Bookteaser / October 14, 2015

Lessons for Sleeping Dogs by Charlie Cochrane is part 12 in the Cambridge Fellows Series. It makes me very proud to participate in the blog tour for this upcoming new novel. See the list for the complete blog tour right here. Lessons for Sleeping Dogs is the twelfth story in the Cambridge Fellows series of romantic mysteries. You can find the full list of stories (with freebies and some rather silly additional content that I must have created in a very mad moment!) here on my blog. People ask me how the series originated and the answer is simple; I was desperate to find some classic age style mysteries that featured a gay couple. I couldn’t, so I wrote my own! Blurb Cambridge, 1921 When amateur sleuth Jonty Stewart comes home with a new case to investigate, his partner Orlando Coppersmith always feels his day has been made. Although, can there be anything to solve in the apparent mercy killing of a disabled man by a doctor who then kills himself, especially when everything takes place in a locked room? But things are never straightforward where the Cambridge fellows are concerned, so when they discover that more than one person…

90’s Playlist inspiration
Author Interview , Blogtour / October 12, 2015

Tomorrow, October 13, the anthology 90’s Playlist will be released. My review will also be posted on that same day. But the day before the release the authors of the stories shared with me what inspired their story and why that specific song would fit the story so well. Here is what they said… I have chosen to insert the video of the song so you can listen to it and get in the mood while reading the story. As a child of the 90’s I remember each and everyone of these songs and I think they fit very well with the stories. Brighton Walsh I chose If by Janet Jackson. It was a hard choice, narrowing down which song to use. I had a short list of about 10, and I played out different plots for each of them. And, in fact, I changed my original song I was planning to use. The idea for a plot based on If—“if I was your girl, the things I’d do to you…”—was just too good to pass up. I loved exploring the secret lover trope, and also playing with the enemies to lovers trope. Lorelie Brown My story comes from listening…

Rough Road
Blogtour , Bookreview / September 30, 2015

This post is part of the blogtour for the latest novel by Vanessa North, called Rough Road. It is the second part of the Lake Lovelace series. I have been asked to be a part of the blogtour by the publisher Riptide Publishing and I am very happy to do just that. Lets start of by letting Vanessa tell us a bit about herself and how she became a writer in the first place. Author of over a dozen novels, novellas, and short stories, Vanessa North delights in giving happy-ever-afters to characters who don’t think they deserve them. Relentless curiosity led her to take up knitting and run a few marathons “just to see if she could.” She started writing for the same reason. Her very patient husband pretends not to notice when her hobbies take over the house. Living and writing in Northwest Georgia, she finds her attempts to keep a quiet home are frequently thwarted by twin boy-children and a very, very large dog. Her latest novel is called Rough Road and came out on September 28, 2015. It promises more sizzling romance, sweet love and even more wonderful men. So go out and buy this one people……..
