Blurb:
Snowed In is a wintery blend of frost, snow, and romance from eight of Torquere Press’ M/M authors.
Winter storms are dangerous, and in Celibate Cold by Lynn Townsend, Topher finds himself stranded in one when his car slides into a ditch. Alone and scared, he tries to walk home in the blizzard but ends up at Chase’s house, desperately in need of help.
Can an accident on Luke and Tom’s annual hike lead to them becoming more than good friends? Find out in Jessica Chase’s Falling for Love!
In This Winter’s Night by Kassandra Lea, Barry is devastated when he realizes he spends more time talking to his horses than his boyfriend—but that’s about change.
These snow angels have a devilish side! Huey and Tommy think their neighbor Marshall would be a naughty, fun addition to their snow day in Snow Angels by Leigh Ellwood.
In Snow Job by Logan Zachary, winter doesn’t always come with a chill—sometimes it’s smokin’ hot! For Lance and Leo, snowbound and icicles are about to take on whole new meanings.
Beau and Leon are two strangers on a chairlift. When Leon—the “experienced” skier—laughs at himself, Beau looks at him in a whole new light in Taking the Fall Line by Tray Ellis.
In Snowy Reunion by Emjay Haze, Steven wonders if he even has a boyfriend since Jonathan walked out after their last argument. But Jonathan surprises Steven during a ski trip and it just might save their relationship.
Seeking the elusive Yeti is Joel’s passion, but he finds more than he bargained for in Adventures of a Yeti Hunter by L.J. Hamlin.

Betrayed
by DC Juris
Two years after he lost his soulmate to the war, Faldor still pines for Meldrick. His world is turned upside down when Meldrick appears on his doorstep late one night, seemingly back from the dead. Finally escaped from a prison camp, Meldrick protects a dark secret--one that could rip his rekindled love apart if Faldor ever learned the truth. But the longer they're together, the more things just don't add up. What really happened two years ago? How did Meldrick escape the prison camp after so long? Is Meldrick still the man Faldor fell in love with? Can Meldrick reconcile who he has become with who he was, and move beyond his treachery, or will betrayal win?

Blurb:

Someone is killing redheads in Madison, California, and Matthew Blake wants to know who. As a vampire, he’s not supposed to get involved with human problems, but his customers at the diner where he works are upset, and when he uses his ability to access one of them, he suspects it isn’t something natural that’s hunting in his town.

Rory Coltraine steps in to manage the diner when his uncle’s illness draws him back to Madison. He feels an immediate attraction to the abrupt, borderline rude night cook. But wolves don’t mix with humans, or not sexually, anyway. That doesn’t mean he can’t make an exception.

But Matthew’s not human, and neither is Rory, and the redheads who are dying are Rory’s Clan. When they do finally give in to their mutual attraction, it changes things for both of them.

Between trying to hunt a hunter, dealing with vampires, and the burdens of their places in the world on top of it, can two very different men find time for love? Of course they can.

The Clawed Monet releases today from A.M. Bostwick!

From A.M. Bostwick

My first love was writing. A close second, animals. Some of my earliest memories include crawling into a box of kittens, snuggling with them and wanting to be a part of their little family.

One of the first stories I ever wrote at about four years old is called, “The Kitten Who Was Scared of Everything.” I wrote it out on lined paper, illustrated it, and tied it together with string to look more “professional.” I gave it to my mother, whom I assumed would seek publication for it straight away. Of course, I still have that little “book.” The plot is lacking, my spelling is atrocious and the pictures leave something to be desired, but it still makes me smile. I’ve always had the drive to tell stories.

My first novel, The Great Cat Nap, released in 2013. The following year, it garnered the Council for Wisconsin Writers Tofte/Wright Children’s Literature Award. It wasn’t until I was standing at that podium, award in hand, that I truly realized how far I’d come from that little girl in the kitten box. All these years later, and I’m still fascinated by cats and the written word.

My newest novel, The Clawed Monet, releases today with Prizm. I could not have asked for a better team on bringing this book into the world. From editing and proofing to marketing and chatting with other authors, it has been a pleasure and I am so grateful to them for believing in my work.

While The Clawed Monet is the sequel to The Great Cat Nap, it also a standalone. In The Clawed Monet, Ace the Cat’s adventures find him tail deep sleuthing and solving mysteries. I hope you’ll join him.

Blurb:
Feline reporter-turned-detective Ace is on the trail of a new mystery following the scandalous opening of a new art exhibit at the historic Rhys Art Museum. When opening night is lights out after a peculiar power failure and a priceless Monet reproduction is clawed beyond repair, all paws point to the new curator’s prim and proper feline – Miss Kitty. Hired by Miss Kitty, Ace and his feline friends are out to find the real criminal and restore the untarnished reputation of Miss Kitty and her art curator companion before they are fired. Setting aside his duties at The Oakdale Register, Ace finds himself trailing the shadow of a “ghost cat” through the historic district and a cemetery, as well as interrogating museum guests, local residents and even a so-called mysterious psychic cat to try and solve the crime. He’ll have to fend off a pack of Dobermans and contend with a gang of raccoons– all under tight deadline. This mystery is filled with adventure, suspense and humor – all from the first-person point-of-view from a cat.

Feline reporter-turned-detective Ace is on the trail of a new mystery following the scandalous opening of a new art exhibit at the historic Rhys Art Museum. When opening night is lights out after a peculiar power failure and a priceless Monet reproduction is clawed beyond repair, all paws point to the new curator’s prim and proper feline – Miss Kitty. Hired by Miss Kitty, Ace and his feline friends are out to find the real criminal and restore the untarnished reputation of Miss Kitty and her art curator companion before they are fired. Setting aside his duties at The Oakdale Register, Ace finds himself trailing the shadow of a “ghost cat” through the historic district and a cemetery, as well as interrogating museum guests, local residents and even a so-called mysterious psychic cat to try and solve the crime. He’ll have to fend off a pack of Dobermans and contend with a gang of raccoons– all under tight deadline. This mystery is filled with adventure, suspense and humor – all from the first-person point-of-view from a cat.

Black of Night
by TC Blue
Someone is killing redheads in Madison, California, and Matthew Blake wants to know who. As a vampire, he’s not supposed to get involved with human problems, but his customers at the diner where he works are upset, and when he uses his ability to access one of them, he suspects it isn’t something natural that’s hunting in his town.
Rory Coltraine steps in to manage the diner when his uncle’s illness draws him back to Madison. He feels an immediate attraction to the abrupt, borderline rude night cook. But wolves don’t mix with humans, or not sexually, anyway. That doesn’t mean he can’t make an exception.
But Matthew’s not human, and neither is Rory, and the redheads who are dying are Rory’s Clan. When they do finally give in to their mutual attraction, it changes things for both of them.
Between trying to hunt a hunter, dealing with vampires, and the burdens of their places in the world on top of it, can two very different men find time for love? Of course they can.

Writing M/M Romance

Have you ever considered writing what you love to read?

Most voracious readers are writers, or might be if given half the chance.  After all, how many times have you wished there was more to the story, and then as you're thinking about it, came up with several ideas for the story to continue?  Yeah, me too.

That's why I started writing.

In February, I'll be hosting a workshop on writing M/M that might be just what you need to dip your toe in and give it a try.  The thing about writing is, no experience is necessary to try it - just a pen and paper or keyboard and text editor.  That's all.  Well, that, and some time to yourself so you can give those ideas of yours time to grow and develop.

Sound fun?

Then join me!

Free Workshop,Writing M/M Romance – When “What He Said” Isn’t Enough

Writing M/M romance, or “male/male” romance, came about in the late 1960’s (probably much earlier, but that’s when folks admit to it), written largely by and for women. It has its roots in the fan communities and stories were mimeographed, (anybody remember those?), to be passed around at conventions or mailed, (yes, snail mail), back and forth. That’s not to say it doesn’t also appeal to men; I have a number of men friends, gay and straight, who like to read it too.

And then came the internet.

Now, with the explosion of ebooks and the ease of sharing stories via forums and archives, the genre has come into its own. There are now more and more original stories with two male characters who meet, have conflicts, and fall in love. And yes, there’s the sex.

We’ll talk about how to write convincing male characters and how to handle pronoun confusion. We’ll touch on some elements of erotic writing and how to make scenes as hot, or as sweet, as one wishes.

Most of all, we’ll have fun. Join me for some discussion and, most of all, some writing.

Join me for a free writing workshop at the Coffee Time Romance forum, here, Sunday, February 7th through Saturday, February 27th. You don’t need any experience as a writer. Just bring your curiosity, enthusiasm, and your internet connection. We’ll create the rest from there.

Broken Alpha
by DC Juris
Captain Korden Encarit of the North Star thought he'd lost the most important person in the universe to him - his brother and lover, Rennett. A year later, Rennett has been found alive, a captive on a hostile planet. Only when their sibling link reactivates does Korden realize how bad the damage is: stripped of his mental strength, Rennett is now a Broken Alpha. With the help of his friends - ship's Malorcian healer, Sokel, and his fiery Human mate, Sebastian - Korden must try and heal his brother's mind and help him adjust to his new status as omega. But Rennett needs a mate, and it quickly becomes clear that no one is willing. Will Korden give up everything he has worked for - his career, his ship - buck Presidian tradition, and risk the scorn of their father to save his brother?
