Buffalo Gay Men’s Book Club to Read The Seventh Pleiade

Gay Men's Book Club

It’s a great honor for me that the Buffalo Gay Men’s Book Club has chosen to read and discuss The Seventh Pleiade. This bit of buzz is extra special since I grew up in Buffalo and hold my hometown close to my heart.

If you’re in the Western New York area, you might want to check these guys out. You can find the group on Facebook and Goodreads. They rotate meetings around coffee shops in Buffalo and Amherst. They also post information about the group at the Pride Center of Western New York.

They’ll be reading The Seventh Pleiade starting February 20th and discussing the book on Thursday, March 19th at Panera Bread in Williamsville (5311 Main Street). I’ll be hanging around their boards on Goodreads to say hi and answer questions. Stop by and say hello!

Some exciting news for 2015

Post-holiday greetings, Happy New Year and a belated MLK Day salute.

Editing has gotten the better of me for the past month or so. I’ve been holed up in my home office, working (fairly) assiduously to get my novel Poseidon and Cleito into shape. Besides a little bit of Facebook-ing and GoodRead-ing, social media has been off the diet.

But I am stepping out of my dark, secluded writing lair to announce that the follow up to The Seventh Pleiade is working its way through production and on the schedule to be released by Bold Strokes Books on October 13th of this year!

And here’s the cover art and the back cover blurb!!

BanishedSonsOfPoseidon_5x8After escaping from a flood that buried the above ground in seawater, a fractured group of boys from Atlantis squabble over the way ahead and their trust of an underground race of men who give them shelter. For sixteen-year-old Dam, whose world was toppling before the tragedy, it’s a strange, new second chance. There are wonders in the underworld and a foreign warrior Hanhau who is eager for friendship despite Dam’s dishonorable past.

But a rift among his countrymen threatens to send their settlement into chaos. Peace between the evacuees and Hanhau’s tribe depends on the sharing of a precious relic that glows with arcane energy. When danger emerges from the shadowed back country, Dam must undertake a desperate mission. It’s the only hope for the Atlanteans to make it home to the surface. It’s the only way to save Hanhau and his people.

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays

I will be traveling the next few days to visit mom and dad and old friends in my hometown Buffalo, New York.

A parting gift for me: my Goodreads Werecat giveaway ended last night, and the book is headed off to a winner in Romania! I wasn’t counting on that extra postage, but I’m excited that Werecat is headed overseas, perhaps appropriately to the Transylvania region. :)

Thanks so much for a terrific year. You supported the release of The Glaring (Werecat, Book 2) in March, The Fugitive (Werecat, Book 3) in November, and just recently the special edition paperback The Trilogy.

Through the year there have been blog hops, and I’ve had the chance to write for some awesome sites like The Good Men Project, GayYA and Dear Teen Me. Of course, the big project has been finishing my manuscript for the follow-up to The Seventh Pleiade. That is almost done and will be coming out in late 2015!

Wishing you a safe, peaceful, dreamy holiday!

xoxo Andrew

If you ever wondered what I’m doing when I’m not blogging

I haven’t been posting much lately, and that’s not because this little blog hasn’t been on my mind.

It’s due in part to the fact that I’ve been doing the last round of manuscript-polishing on my follow up to The Seventh Pleiade. I finalized the title and the cover art with my publisher last month. The book shall be: Banished Sons of Poseidon, and it picks up the story from the perspective of a supporting character who has a very big adventure of his own in the world where the survivors of Atlantis take asylum. Some preview material and a cover reveal will be coming shortly. It’s on the production schedule for late 2015!

In nearly equal measure, I’ve been pulled away from posting here while I’ve been hopping around other media in the hope of taking advantage of platforms with a bigger reach than this little-engine-that-could.

In October, I did an interview on BlogTalkRadio’s People You Should Know.

In November, I was over at Queer Sci Fi talking about the release of Werecat: The Trilogy. 

This month, I sat down in the ‘Comfy Chair’ at author Elin Gregory’s awesome blog Telling it Like it Was, and I wrote a guest post for the #WeresEvent2014 at Paranormal Cravings.

Later, I’ll be a guest at ARe Café (All Romance e-Books) on December 19th, and I have a feature lined up at Sinfully Sexy Books.

From the time I started this blog—five years ago!—I wanted to respect the fact that there are tons of really good blogs already out there. I knew that I could write about what I’ve learned about the craft of writing, or fantasy and gay fiction specifically, or the little bit of wisdom I’ve gained regarding marketing and the business end of being a writer. But there’s always been a little voice inside me saying: “If it’s not worth someone’s time to read it, don’t write it.” There are a whole lot of people talking about those topics, and most of the time they’re talking about them with a whole lot more insight and panache than I possess.

So, you will still see news about my books when cool stuff happens. You’ll see ‘extras’ about the characters and the worlds of my books, and photos and videos from events I’ve attended. I expect you’ll also see the occasional opinion piece about LGBT portrayals in literature and film, and causes that inspire me, and curious little things about my favorite subjects like ancient worlds, Atlantis and of course cats.

And today, by way of sharing a random, passing obsession, you’ll see Corey Hart.

The Werecat trilogy is out in paperback!

WerecatTrilogyFinalRETAILCover700x1066pRGB96dpiJust released today: all three installments of the Werecat saga in one fierce, little paperback.

That’s The Rearing, The Glaring and The Fugitive all together for the first time. Here’s a blurb about the story.

Twenty-two-year-old Jacks is on a mission to drown his past in alcohol when he meets the handsome drifter Benoit on a lost weekend in Montréal. It’s lust and possibly something more. Jacks never suspects that a drunken hook-up will plunge him into the hidden, violent world of feline shifters.

Benoit traps him in an arcane ritual to be joined as mates, from which Jacks emerges with fantastical abilities and a connection to Native traditions that were buried by his family. But his new existence pits his human instincts against his wild animal nature. When Jacks meets the young medical student Farzan, who wants to be with Jacks no matter what or who he is, Benoit’s feline jealousy rages like an inferno.

Jacks must figure out how to survive with his dual nature and a boyfriend who will kill any threat to their relationship. When a secret society called The Glaring shows up with a plan to exterminate humankind, Jacks will have to work quickly to gain command of Benoit’s magic before the world shatters into a war of man against beast.

The Werecat saga has been about two years in the making. I’m pleased as heck to see the full story beautifully bound in a print book. Pick it up at Amazon or your favorite retailer.
