A quick update to let everyone know I’ll be taking part in a Facebook launch party on Sunday. The event is to celebrate the release of Alex J Adams’ new book Finding Beau, a m/m romance set in my home city of Liverpool – so how could I not take part?! – and I’ll be giving away one digital copy of my own paranormal m/m romance December Roses, as well as chatting about ways to keep cool in this inferno of a heatwave.
All this month my paranormal romance December Roses is featuring in a promotional Book Fair organised by C.L. Cannon. The fair features over 150 sci-fi and fantasy books in a range of sub-genres, all of them either free, discounted, or available free on Kindle Unlimited. The list isn’t limited to just LGBT books, either, so there really should be something for everyone.
The fair also includes a giveaway with a chance to win a Kindle Fire, a 1-month Owlcrate subscription and a $10 Starbucks giftcard. Just follow the instructions on the main Book Fair page to enter.
You can find December Roses towards the end of the ‘Urban Fantasy & Paranormal Romance (PNR)’ category – two genres that I wouldn’t necessarily group together, but your mileage may vary.
I hope you have fun browsing the many great books on offer – and if you fancy a romance set in a faded English garden where nothing is quite what it seems, then don’t forget to follow the link to December Roses while you’re there.
A quick heads-up that tomorrow evening (Friday 24th September) I’ll be at fellow m/m romance author Jackie Keswick’s Facebook group, helping her celebrate the release of her new book Caught.
Caught is a m/m paranormal romance featuring demons and demon-hunters, with more than a hat-tip towards Japanese culture. It’s currently on pre-order but releases tomorrow, hence the party.
As you can see from the graphic there’ll be lots of authors taking part with all kinds of games, questions, and things to take part in, plus prizes and giveaways. I’ll be dropping in at 7pm (UK time) with a couple of posts about my latest book Heat Haze: Summer Sizzlers, and will be giving away one copy of the e-book. So if you fancy a chance at winning it, or chatting to me or any of the other authors, why not come along to Jackie’s Kitchen and join in the fun?
Just a quick heads-up that I’ll be doing a takeover on the Talking RoMMance with a British Accent facebook group at 5.15 today (Sunday). I’ll be chatting about my new book Trench Warfare, posting an excerpt from it, and giving away one e-book from my m/m romance catalogue to a lucky winner on the day.
This is part of the group’s Pride Weekend celebrations and there are dozens of other authors taking part. Yesterday was the lgbt authors, and you can still catch their posts by scrolling down through the group discussions. Today is what I’d describe as “allies” to the lgbt cause. All write m/m romance and all are contributing to the fun with questions, trivia, book recommendations and lots of giveaways, so do pop in because there’s something for everyone.
I’m popping in with some advance warning (so there’s plenty of time for you all to pack your bags and leave Earth): on Saturday 4th July I’ll be taking part in an online gay pride literary event organised by fellow writer Blake Allwood to help take the place of so many conventions and festivals that have had to be cancelled this year.
I’ll post more details nearer the time, including a link to Blake’s group and the exact time I’ll be appearing, but there will be trivia questions, some fun details about my books, and a couple of giveaways. And there are dozens of other gltbq writers taking part on both the Saturday and the Sunday so stick the dates in your diary so you can join in the fun.
I’ve just set up a brand new Facebook page for ‘Got Ghosts?’ and to celebrate I’m holding a daft little contest, with one free copy of the book to give away. All you need to do is pop along to the page, have a look at the photo I’ve posted there and come up with a suitably funny caption for it. The caption that makes me laugh the most wins the book!
To keep things easier to manage, please respond in the comments on the FB page post, otherwise I might miss seeing them. The contest opens today and the end time is 4pm UK time on Friday (8th December) – and I’ll announce the winner during the weekend.
