Tivi's Dagger
Alex Douglas
The son and heir to a noble, Nedim Melchion has always been used to the more illicit pleasures in the high society of the Divine Kingdom of Lis, where laws are harsh and punishments harsher. So far his money and status have protected him from the grim realities of life…but now that the Protectors who police the land have a new leader, life has taken an unwelcome turn for the worse.
What could be more unfashionable for a noble in his prime than being forced to wear a pilgrim brown tunic while trudging through the dangerous mountain kingdom of Methar to pay homage to the Gods at an ancient shrine? Bound to serve by a Rite invoked by his devout older brother, Nedim can do nothing but count the footsteps until he can get back to his friends, his favorite tavern and his decadent ways. But as he and his traveling companions are guided through the land of the love gods by a handsome young monk, will Nedim find reason to change his ways?

Go Ask Alice
by Anne Key
Alice is in trouble.
Big trouble. Her girlfriend, Cat, is dead, Alice just got out of the hospital, and everything is falling apart. The girls bought a bag of pills from a dealer and took them to Cat’s house to LARP their game, Underneath. The plan is to take one pill after another until the vampires come for them.
Problem is, the vampires didn’t come, the ambulance did.
As soon as she gets home, Alice runs away to attend Cat’s funeral and meets Leveret, Cat’s cousin, and that’s when she falls down the rabbit hole.
From shrinking and growing, from a monster in a hospital to a haunted toy store, from a nightclub filled with vampires to a Ren Faire with the most unnerving Mad Hatter and a game where ninja ballerinas beat people to death with sticks – Alice’s trip follows the heart of the Alice in Wonderland story, if not the letter.
On the way Alice has to make a number of decisions – is she sane? Is she dead? Is she willing to sacrifice everything for someone else or does she exercise self-preservation even if that means losing the girl she loves?

A Fool's War
by Voss Foster
Marley is alive, and back with Toby and the rest of Zirkua Fantastic. But King Jester, the spirit of discord, still roams free, and his most fearsome creations, the Princes, have been loosed from their prisons. Now, human and immortal alike are disappearing, no sign of a body or a struggle to be found. More and more of them each day.
Now, it’s the duty of the last remnants of resistance to stand strong against the impossible, battle back the chaos before it ravages Earth. And all the while, a single question remains unanswered: can life ever return to normal after this?

Combine, a Hammer novel
by Sean Michael
Dom and sub couples Peter and Devon, and Max and Swan, are joining their lives together. After a week at The Briar Rose, they know there’s a lot of work to do, and they’re all committed to making sure what they have together succeeds.
Peter is the easygoing sub, while Max needs discipline and rules to keep from falling back into bad habits, so both Masters worry about making sure that each boy gets what he needs without making either sub feel neglected. It’s a balancing act that winds up taking some fancy footwork and the stress takes its toll.
As they learn to live and bond together, they discover things about each other that makes them fall more deeply in love, helping to cement their relationships.
Then an unexpected attack on Peter and Max threatens to upset the balance they’ve created, and Swan and Devon must join forces to give their subs what they need to push through and thrive. Will this stumbling block break apart their hard-won new family, or will it forge a stronger foursome?

Before the New Moon Rises
by Cathy Hird
Non-GLBT
When Poseidon's ambition is thwarted (as told in Moon of the Goddess), Princess Thalassai expects to enjoy the luxury of peace in the valley of Ephyra. Instead, the Earthshaker's revenge strikes like forked lightning. He recruits Aphoron, disgraced prince of Ephyra, to set off an attack on her home city. The god then releases a monster shark to shut down trade and lays a sleeping spell on the four kings who hold sway in the lands claimed by the ancient goddess Eurynome.
With the king under Poseidon's spell, Thalassai struggles to maintain order in the city.

As other Olympian gods who are angry with Poseidon are drawn into the fray, conflict threatens to engulf the lands of Greece. Will it spread to the mountain of the gods? Will the young leaders find a way to defeat the Earthshaker's plans and restore peace?

The Post-Thanksgiving, Post-NaNo Conundrum...

There are so many things to be thankful for, serious and important things, and I'm thankful for all of those: my family, good health, having a home and food, being able to express my views freely.

There's a lighter side to life, though, and I'd like to take a moment to be thankful for some wonderfully silly things. I'm thankful for making my NaNo word count.I'm thankful for leftovers when I'm still not quite over the delicious but slightly stressful dinner preparations yesterday. I'm thankful for light-hearted challenges that let me take a step back from that NaNo novel, also known as the Mess That Ate My Brain, and write something frivolous, just for the sheer fun of it.

Sometimes I think we need to step back and, in the face of the often overwhelming seriousness of our lives, just take the time to have fun. We take fun for granted, but it's actually essential. I can't recharge those creative batteries when stressed, but if I've had a good laugh, I can find the energy to rethink a plotline, or get past something that's been blocking the flow of a story.

So let me be thankful for silliness, for belly laughs that make me cry, for the ability to laugh at myself.

Why I am not a good writer...

Hello, everyone! 

I did NaNoWriMo again this year. This was my sixth consecutive year, and I'm happy to say that I've managed to make my word count every one of those years. But this year, I realized that I'm really not a good writer.

Oh, what I write is fine. I'm not churning out deathless prose that will be analyzed extensively and taught to freshmen in universities everywhere. But my work is readable, and often even enjoyable, or so I'm told. Some of it is even pretty good, if I do say so myself. Nothing like patting one's self on the back every now and then.

No, the reason I'm not a good writer is that everything is so very distracting. You see, I like to research when I write, because even when I'm writing a fantasy world, I like things to be plausible. So, I go online and I look around. Before you know it, I'm off in some obscure corner of the Internet, looking at things that have absolutely no relation to what I was researching. Granted, they might be interesting, and once or twice, even serving as inspiration for a new project, but for pity's sake! I've lost entire afternoons of writing time to these excursions.

In the bad old days, before PCs and the Internet, I went to libraries to research things. It took more time, because I had to actually go out to the physical location, and find the books I wanted, and grumble about not being allowed to take ten books at a time ("Other people need to look things up, too, young lady!"). I'd sit, and make notes until my hand cramped and my stomach announced that I needed sustenance, but boy, did I research. There weren't cats,or corgis, or news updates, or music videos with songs I'd forgotten how much I liked.

And yet, I can't quite bring myself to regret my lost afternoons. After all, how else would I have learned who was buried in Trinity Cemetery, or how to use those annoying but inedible horse chestnuts to make a quite nice exfoliating soap? I may not be a good writer, but I'm certainly happy!

Little known things about Tucker

So, Tucker is a man of many talents. (Tor would add a couple of things to the list that I'm not going to post here, but you can imagine.) Here are a few little-known facts about him.


1. Favorite ice cream: Rocky Road.







2. He, much like Jake, has a fondness for cooking. His style is more southern, though, so not quite as healthy. Once he discovered Tor liked biscuits, he's been making them often.






3. He prefers gimme caps to cowboy hats, although he has both. It's very rare to see him without a backwards John Deere trucker hat on.
4. He can change his own oil, brake pads, and do minor engine repairs on his truck.







5. It took a while, but he definitely thinks that 2+2=4.















Thanks for hanging out with us today! You can buy Never Too Early: Full Circle HERE, and you can get it for 25% off if you use the code THANKFUL2015.

Jake has things, too.

One of the little known bits about Jake is that at some point he became fascinated with cooking. It certainly wasn't the case during Bareback and Natural Disaster, but when he was feeding Jacob he somehow got a few skills and it sparked an interest.



One of his favourite things to cook is Greek, both because he enjoys the process and the taste, but also because Chance loves to eat it.

Here are a few of his faves:


Moussaka

Avgolemono

Stuffed Grape Leaves

Tzatziki (which is his go to dip for EVERYTHING)

And of course Baklava.  Fantastic.  Now I'm hungry....

He cooks a little in the books -- check 'em out. :D  They're on special.

 

Author Extra: Thicker Than Bone By Matthew J. Metzger

Thicker Than Bone
By Matthew J. Metzger



If you could save someone's life, would you? Anyone's?
Ali's older brother has a swastika tattooed on his knuckles, a prison ID number for nearly beating a man to death for the crime of being Middle Eastern, and spent his teenage years ruthlessly persecuting Ali for being gay.

Blood may be thicker than water, but Ali has spent most of his life desperate to prove that he is nothing like Tony. A committed vegetarian, charity-supporter, and blood donor, Ali would do anything for anyone, and is frequently teased by his partner, Yazid, for being too soft-hearted. Ali may share parentage with Tony, but he is determined not to share anything else if he can help it.

So when Tony contracts leukaemia, and Ali is the only match for the urgently-needed bone marrow transplant, Ali is caught between two equally awful choices: to refuse, and condemn a man to death, or to donate.

And in donating, save the life of the man who nearly murdered Ali's Iraq-born boyfriend?




Author Extra:

7th February 2009

 

Ali's day was going badly.

 

Firstly, the blood donation had been unusually painful, and Ali's arm was still throbbing an hour and a half later. Secondly, the nurse had been like a total vampire, 'cause Ali swore he was missing two pints, not one. He still felt woozy, for God's sake. And thirdly, it was chucking it down, making the usually pleasant wander across Leeds city centre for the bus home...well, kind of crap, actually.

 

Hurting, dizzy, and wet. Not Ali's three favourite feelings, it had to be admitted. And a thirty-minute bus journey before he could get home and just relax...urgh. He needed, like, a bucket of coffee for this.

 

He hitched his collar up as he headed for Kirkgate Market. Coffee. And there was only one decent place to get coffee, in Ali's opinion. The fact that was a clear jog right across the pouring city centre wasn't a bonus point, nor was the small issue of Ali being too dizzy to come anywhere close to jog, but the cafe was always steaming hot. He could drink it inside, for once, dry off, then jog for the bus at the nearby station once he'd topped up his sugar levels, right?

 

And then...

 

God knew what then. Ali had been at a loose end lately. He'd moved out recently, finally fed up with the family home, but living on your own wasn't so great, really. And now he had some freedom from his totally awful family, maybe it was time to try dating again — only therein lay the problem. Ali was out of practice. His older brother had put paid to any idea of dating before Ali had moved out, and in the last few months, Ali had discovered he really had no idea how to--

 

"Watch it!"

 

Out of the rain and the gloomy rush of Ali's thoughts, a man appeared. Or more specifically, a man's hand, clutching a steaming cup of coffee. And then the man's chest followed, in rapid succession, hard and unyielding — Ali slammed into him at full dizzy pelt, knocking both the stranger and the cup flying. There was a flurry of cloth and noise, then a roaring in Ali's ears, and —

 
"Whoa, hey, you okay?"


There was a hand on his back, bending Ali's neck down. A dry hand, despite the rain, and a voice that wrapped around his ears like an affectionate cat, warm and comfortable, and Ali struggled to inhale and blink back the spinning, dark dots.


"Head between your knees. Come on, I've got you, just sit down a sec--"


"I'm fine, I'm fine," Ali mumbled, reaching out. He grasped the stranger's elbow, and found his jacket to be hot and wet. "Oh my God, did I—"

 
"Ah, it's alright. Not the first coffee shower I've had," the stranger said.

 
Ali blinked, focused and —


Paused. The world paused, too. "Ali," he mumbled stupidly, and the stranger's face — that perfect face, dark-skinned and darker-eyed, with a mouth that twitched at one corner and showed off startlingly white teeth and an unholy, all-too-kissable dimple — furrowed in a light frown.


"Sorry?"


"I'm...oh God, I'm sorry," Ali said, clearing his head and straightening up. The stranger was slim, long legs in drenched jeans. His jacket had mostly fended off the coffee that had been upended over him, and that bright smile glimmered out of his rain-dampened face like a lighthouse off a stormy sea. And Ali knew he was staring, and he knew this was going to ruin an already well-ruined day, because the stranger was simply beautiful, dark and exotic and probably Turkish or something similar, and every man Ali had ever liked had been Turkish-or-something-similar, and—


"Look," the stranger said, "you can buy me a coffee to replace that one, and you sit with me for a bit, yeah? Only you don't look very well, and—"


"Okay," Ali's mouth said, seizing on the chance that his brain knew would be a bad idea. "Um. I mean—"


The man laughed, and stuck out a hand for Ali to shake. "It's a date, then?" he said. "Come on. It's just up the street here. Ali, was it?"

 
"I — yes. Alasdair. Um, Barraclough," Ali added, his tongue clumsy and unwieldy in his mouth. The laugh had been devestating. The way the man ducked his head before his smile broadened was nothing short of stunning, and —


"Yazid," the man said, seized Ali's limp hand, and shook it firmly. "Al-Batari. No 'um.' And I could ask after the coffee, but I might as well try my luck now, while your defences seem down, so — would I have a chance of getting your phone number at some point?"

And just like that, Ali's day was going fine.

Finally Release Day!

Good morning from the west coast of the US! I'm Tory, and my co-host/co-author is Chris Owen. We'll both be here on and off throughout the day to celebrate the release of the final book in the Never Too Early series. Be sure and check back now and then to see fun tidbits about the books and the boys.

And speaking of the boys, let me start by showing you several of the places that Chance has traveled to for the sole purpose of surfing. He loves his beaches, that one.

He's been to Indonesia; specifically, the island of Bali. No resort hotel for Chance, though. He sleeps on the beach whenever possible.







Oaxaca, Mexico. Another favorite of his. This is one trip that Tucker will always go on, for three reasons only. (1) The food. (2) The beer. (3) Chance.





A spot that has great conditions is Honolua Bay in Maui, although Chance finds the crowds there difficult to take. He prefers his water to be less populated. That hasn't stopped him from going there three times, though.






And finally, Tavarua, Fiji. Cloudbreak surf spot has been ranked as one of the ten most challenging in the world. Chance, naturally, needed to determine this for himself, so he went about three years ago to check it out. He agrees with the ranking.






Fun fact: that is actually Kelly Slater in the last picture at Cloudbreak. Kelly Slater is the only famous person to ever catch Chance's eye. Meaning: major crush.

See?









Don't tell Chance I told you.





Today is the day, Gentle Readers, and we are overfull of delight.

I'm Chris, she's Tory, and we'll both be in and out today, linking you up with our new release and sharing some bonus goodies.  Today the third book in our series, Never Too Early, is out! It's the completion of our cowboys-and-medics-romance-of-epicness (totally a word) and it's our joy to finally share it with you.

Plus, LOOK AT THAT COVER. Big props to the artist, Kris Norris.


So pretty. All three of the new covers are so pretty! 

Speaking of pretty... well, no. Speaking of images. I want to share with you a few things today, and the first is a photo spread of Tor's favourite things, aside from Jake, Tucker and Chance.

In the final book of the Never Too Early series, cowboys Jake and Tor and firefighters Chance and Tucker have more on their plates than they bargained for. What started out as friendship has developed into strong feelings, and the couples continue to grow and learn about each other. However, adding two and two is more than a simple math problem. Words and emotions can be a dangerous mix, as the four men discover, and jealousy and miscommunication threaten what they've built together.
When two of the four unexpectedly connect, it sends all of them reeling. Pride is bruised and feelings are wounded, although they try desperately to hold themselves together in order to navigate this new territory. The physical distance between them all is both a blessing and a curse. When one of them reveals something that can't be taken back, it threatens the relationships of all four men.

If you could save someone's life, would you? Anyone's?
Ali's older brother has a swastika tattooed on his knuckles, a prison ID number for nearly beating a man to death for the crime of being Middle Eastern, and spent his teenage years ruthlessly persecuting Ali for being gay.
Blood may be thicker than water, but Ali has spent most of his life desperate to prove that he is nothing like Tony. A committed vegetarian, charity-supporter, and blood donor, Ali would do anything for anyone, and is frequently teased by his partner, Yazid, for being too soft-hearted. Ali may share parentage with Tony, but he is determined not to share anything else if he can help it.
So when Tony contracts leukaemia, and Ali is the only match for the urgently-needed bone marrow transplant, Ali is caught between two equally awful choices: to refuse, and condemn a man to death, or to donate.
And in donating, save the life of the man who nearly murdered Ali's Iraq-born boyfriend?

Tivi's Dagger
Alex Douglas
The son and heir to a noble, Nedim Melchion has always been used to the more illicit pleasures in the high society of the Divine Kingdom of Lis, where laws are harsh and punishments harsher. So far his money and status have protected him from the grim realities of life…but now that the Protectors who police the land have a new leader, life has taken an unwelcome turn for the worse.
What could be more unfashionable for a noble in his prime than being forced to wear a pilgrim brown tunic while trudging through the dangerous mountain kingdom of Methar to pay homage to the Gods at an ancient shrine? Bound to serve by a Rite invoked by his devout older brother, Nedim can do nothing but count the footsteps until he can get back to his friends, his favorite tavern and his decadent ways. But as he and his traveling companions are guided through the land of the love gods by a handsome young monk, will Nedim find reason to change his ways?

Go Ask Alice
by Anne Key
Alice is in trouble.
Big trouble. Her girlfriend, Cat, is dead, Alice just got out of the hospital, and everything is falling apart. The girls bought a bag of pills from a dealer and took them to Cat’s house to LARP their game, Underneath. The plan is to take one pill after another until the vampires come for them.
Problem is, the vampires didn’t come, the ambulance did.
As soon as she gets home, Alice runs away to attend Cat’s funeral and meets Leveret, Cat’s cousin, and that’s when she falls down the rabbit hole.
From shrinking and growing, from a monster in a hospital to a haunted toy store, from a nightclub filled with vampires to a Ren Faire with the most unnerving Mad Hatter and a game where ninja ballerinas beat people to death with sticks – Alice’s trip follows the heart of the Alice in Wonderland story, if not the letter.
On the way Alice has to make a number of decisions – is she sane? Is she dead? Is she willing to sacrifice everything for someone else or does she exercise self-preservation even if that means losing the girl she loves?

A Fool's War
by Voss Foster
Marley is alive, and back with Toby and the rest of Zirkua Fantastic. But King Jester, the spirit of discord, still roams free, and his most fearsome creations, the Princes, have been loosed from their prisons. Now, human and immortal alike are disappearing, no sign of a body or a struggle to be found. More and more of them each day.
Now, it’s the duty of the last remnants of resistance to stand strong against the impossible, battle back the chaos before it ravages Earth. And all the while, a single question remains unanswered: can life ever return to normal after this?

Never Too Early: Full Circle
Chris Owen & Tory Temple
In the final book of the Never Too Early series, cowboys Jake and Tor and firefighters Chance and Tucker have more on their plates than they bargained for. What started out as friendship has developed into strong feelings, and the couples continue to grow and learn about each other. However, adding two and two is more than a simple math problem. Words and emotions can be a dangerous mix, as the four men discover, and jealousy and miscommunication threaten what they've built together.
When two of the four unexpectedly connect, it sends all of them reeling. Pride is bruised and feelings are wounded, although they try desperately to hold themselves together in order to navigate this new territory. The physical distance between them all is both a blessing and a curse. When one of them reveals something that can't be taken back, it threatens the relationships of all four men. How do two separate couples blend themselves to become one unit? The doubts and fears threaten to overwhelm them all, and no one will emerge unscathed.

Reflections on 'Fairest'

Mirrors fascinate me. When we look at our reflections, what do we see? I remember always being dissatisfied with my reflection. I was too fat, too ruddy, too blotchy faced. I was never quite happy with the girl looking back. I'd diet, I'd exercise, I'd try to wear flattering clothes, but I was never quite as pretty as I wished to be. This was my reaction to an ordinary reflection. Imagine my reaction, or yours, if it was magical. The wicked queen's magic mirror in 'Snow White' fascinated me, as did her question, "Who is the fairest one of all?" One can dismiss the question as simple vanity, but what if there was more to it? A deeper meaning might lie in what the queen sees, when she looks into the mirror, only to see a maiden much lovelier than herself. This was the kernel of inspiration for 'Fairest'. What does it mean to be the fairest one of all? How does it affect you, when you see your reflection? Not just in a mirror, but in someone else's eyes? What's reflected back may change you in ways you don't expect. When you see someone else's face in a magic mirror, it may change you forever.  I hope you'll look for 'Fairest' in Prizm's 'Rainbows Come in All Colors' in the spring of 2016. May reading it be a magical experience for you all.

Sapphire Dream Is Coming! or, Why Edits During the Holidays Are Tough


Rachel and I are hard at work on our next Persis Chronicles story, called Sapphire Dream.  But it's National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, and it's coming up on the holidays and retail's Black Friday.  Day jobs must be worked, which means this is a busy time of year.

I figured I'd share a little excerpt for you to enjoy.

* * *

Cheula tried to pay more attention this time and managed to not get lost until they were several hallways away from home. He sighed in irritation.

“What?” Ming asked, eyeing him.

“Hmm?”

“You’re frustrated, if I’m any judge. What’s wrong?”

“I’m lost!” He waved a hand at the halls. “This isn’t like stone!”

“True. But look there, see the glyph in the tent wall?” Ming fingered an embroidered square.

“Yeah…”

“They’re directional markers.”

Cheula gaped at him. “You’re kidding!”

“Yes.”

He blinked. “What?”

Ming started walking again and chuckled. “Come on, we’re almost to the Hunters’ Pavilion.”

“Ming!”

“Come on!” Ming called over his shoulder, still laughing.

Cheula stomped after him and, probably due to his annoyance, recognized the Hunter’s Pavilion from their last visit. He came even with Ming and the Asian threw his muscular arm around Cheula’s shoulders as they entered.

“You met Elder Hunter?” Ming asked, releasing him from the hug.

Cheula nodded. “Earlier.”

“Do you play poker?”

Cheula could get some of his own back. “Only a little.”

Ming cocked an eyebrow but didn’t comment, just led the way over to a table. A Hunter dressed in dark grey turned and Cheula recognized Quill. He waved one-handed and finished his conversation, then came over.

“Good day, Senior Hunter,” Cheula greeted.

“Call me Quill.”

Warmed, Cheula smiled at him. “I will.”

“Poker?” Ming asked.

Quill shrugged. “Sure. Where’s Feyl?”

“Sleeping.”

Tybin entered from an entrance on the far side and saw them. He smiled and spoke to his Keeper, who disappeared back through the flap. Tybin himself walked over to join them.

“Poker, Sire?” Ming asked.

“I could play a hand or two,” Tybin agreed. “Cheula.”

“Sire.”

Ming shuffled with practiced efficiency and dealt. Cheula checked his cards and smiled to himself. This would be fun.

After five hands, Ming sat back in his chair and threw the cards on the table. “Cheula, you’re not a novice.”

“Never said I was,” Cheula murmured. “Just lost.”
