Werecat Promo Tour

Since Werecat: The Trilogy came out in November, I’ve organized a blog hop of sorts. I wanted to share that there are lots of opportunities to win yourself a freebie as I celebrate this milestone in the series.

First, closing out December 21st, you can enter to win a giveaway of the first installment of the saga The Rearing at Paranormal Cravings #WeresEvent2014.

Just yesterday, the awesome folks at Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews ran a feature on the series and they have a rafflecopter drawing December 18th – 20th for The Rearing as well.

I put together a Goodreads giveaway of an autographed copy of The Trilogy that will run December 22nd – 24th. It’s open to readers in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia and many other places around the globe.

You can enter it here:

Head over to the Rainbow Awards website for the pre-party Treasure Hunt

2014 Rainbow Awards

Romance author Elisa Rolle is hosting a really fun promotion for readers of LGBT romance.

It’s a contest to match short excerpts with the finalists from the 2014 Rainbow Awards. Each day in November, Elisa is posting anonymous passages from four of the titles. Post your guess at the title as a comment on the blog, and you will be entered for a chance to win that title at the end of the month.

There’s no limit on how many titles you can guess, so you could score a number of books. One of the titles is my own The Seventh Pleiade.

Here’s the link to the contest.

Winners will be drawn at the end of November. The Rainbow Awards themselves will be announced in early December. Cross your fingers for TSP!

Help Support Bent-con and Come out for the Festivities

I made a pledge to Bent-con’s Kickstarter campaign. Can you?

Bent-con is a really important organization that supports the creative community and its fans. From the organizers:

BENT-CON is the premiere convention that celebrates and recognizes LGBTQ (and Allies) contributions to pop-culture and geekdom. BENT-CON is committed creating a space where EVERYONE is safe to share and express their particular brand of creativity and fandom proud and out loud!

Here’s their Kickstarter video:


This year’s convention, November 7th – 9th in Burbank, California, will be its fifth annual. As a non-profit venture, the event relies on contributions from the community to promote and advertise, which in return benefits the artists, writers and fans who participate.

I went to my first convention last year. Beyond the wonder of discovering a vibrant segment of the LGBT community (I had tweeted: I have died and gone to gay geek heaven), I was really impressed by the range of programs and the plentiful interaction between convention guests and fans.

This year, in addition to being part of Bold Strokes Books exhibition booth, I will be leading one panel “A Hitchhiker’s Guide to Atlantis” and speaking in another “Gay Wizards and Lesbian Sorceresses”. Be sure to say hello if you have a chance to stop by.

And if you haven’t done so, please consider making a contribution to Bent-con’s Kickstarter.

“Why I Write” series at The Good Men Project

Author Dixie Gillaspie (Just Blow it Up: Firepower for Living an Unlimited Life) is asking writers the simple question: Why do you write? over at The Good Men Project.

The responses have been varied as you might expect coming from a diverse array of writers. They have also been very personal and candid. Christine Benvenuto chose to write about her divorce in order to reclaim her life. Christian Clifton writes for connection and self-improvement. Michael Kasdan writes to better understand the world around him.

My contribution to the project came out just this past weekend: To Create Fiction That Tells it Like it Really Is. (Well, at least according to me!).

10 Books About Gay Men Written by Gay Men

This is not a top ten list. It’s something I decided to do in celebration of LGBT Pride month.

The title might sound odd. There are lots of books about gay men so why single out the ones that were written by gay men?

I did it because I believe that there is something important about being out and proud within and beyond the author arena. It’s about self-respect, standing up for the right to be who you are, and showing other people that it’s possible to live life openly and freely.

Gay authors don’t just write books about gay men, of course. But when we do write books about gay men, I also believe there is something special about that. It’s a passing down of shared life experiences. It’s a particular point-of-view or some would say sensibility.

Anyway, these are a few of my favorite books under that theme, and they are in no particular order. I acknowledge fully that I’m missing a boatload of great books

The Irreversible Decline of Eddie Socket by John Weir  The Burning Plain by Michael NavaLight by Nathan Burgoine Just As I Am by E. Lynn Harris Sleeping Angel by Greg Herren

We The Animals by Justin Torres

Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You by Peter CameronThe Vast Fields of Ordinary by Nick Burd
