Guest – The Art of Hero Worship by Mia Kerick

Hello. I am very happy to be here today to promote my book, The Art of Hero Worship, an Adult LGBTQ Contemporary Romance.

He risks his life in a theater mass shooting to save the life of another man, a stranger, Jason Tripp. Several days later, he risks his life one more time for the same man. I have collected my top ten quotations about heroes. I … Continued

Release Blast – Midsummer Nights by TJ Land

Midsummer Nights by TJ Land M/M, Fantasy, Novella Blurb: Newly arrived at Oberon’s court, Puck has already made a name for himself through his wit, his wiliness, and his very nice legs. But he’s not interested in the envy of his peers; what he’s really after is the attention of the Lord of All Fairies himself. Seducing the monarch will surely win him power and prestige, provided he can withstand Oberon’s famously bad temper. Soon, though, Puck realizes that Oberon’s belligerent façade is just that, and his schemes of strategic seduction are submerged beneath budding infatuation. Now, Puck will have to muster all his tricks, from sonnets … Continued

Guest: Steve Burford – It’s a Sin Blog Tour

The seed for the Summerskill and Lyon books was sown years ago when I entered a short story competition that was looking for pieces about ‘real’ gay life. “We don’t want to hear about the discos, the back rooms and the Judy Garland wannabes,” the blurb said, “tell us about what gay life in twenty first century Britain is really like.” I duly knocked out a poignant (I thought) yet (mostly) honest piece about the day in the life of a gay teacher – something I had far too much experience of at the time – and sent it off. … Continued

Guest – Olley White – For Want of A Christmas Miracle Blog Tour

Hi, Dirk. Thank you so much for hosting me on your blog today. Toby, one of the main characters in my new Christmas novella, For want of a Christmas Miracle, available now from NineStar Press, has a love of cheesy Christmas cracker jokes—you know the kind that a five year old can’t tell you without giggling ridiculously? Toby is that boss who shouldn’t really exist; a genuinely nice bloke. He likes to make people comfortable, and silly jokes are one of his tactics. So, in honour of Toby, I thought for this post I could share some of the best … Continued

Guest: Scarlet Blackwell – Writer’s Block

I’m here today to talk to you about my new book, Forbidden, from NineStar Press. It’s a erotic romance novella that centres on two very different seeming guys who can’t help their attraction to each other. This has been a book that’s a long time in the making—my first new book in 3 years. The reason? Writers’ block. No really. What, I can’t use that excuse? I’ve had a long time to mull over my 3-year case of writer’s block and to think about its causes. Is it that I’m lazy and self-indulgent? I like to think not. It was … Continued

Guest: Sara York – Research

  I’m Sara York and I’ve written a few Men in Uniform type of stories, and research is a huge part of writing. Not that long ago I had the opportunity to dress in full riot gear and do a simulated building invasion with the SWAT team. Above and beyond it being exceeding cool to be carrying an M15 in my hands, and a Glock on my hip, the vest I was wearing had all the bells and whistles that would make any SWAT team member envious. The first piece of equipment I had strapped onto me was a harness … Continued

Guest: Tempeste O’Riley – How did you choose your setting and the occupations for your MCs?

Once upon a time, in a land far far away…. No, that’s not right. Well, it was what seems a long time ago now, I visited Seattle and fell in love with the area, the forest (I got to stay in the national forest there, in on of the cabin/park areas!), the city, everything. If I could move and stand it (I hate moving and moving as a single parent across the country… did that once, yeah, so not happenin’ again!) I would move to Seattle. So, when I decided I was writing a shifter story (series) or rather, Keith … Continued
