Blurb:
Jennifer Hartstrum has trouble with men. Her relationship with an abusive father left her with a speech impediment that flares up only when she dates. Her friend talks her into trying an exciting new dating experience, the Anonymous Club, a place where a date is an adventure and fantasies can come true. One must choose an alias, and anonymity is guaranteed.

Andrew Martin is looking for a woman who can keep up with him outside of the bedroom as well as in bed. He tries the Anonymous Club with low expectations.

When Jennifer and Andrew meet, it is Chemistry 101. Have they found what they are looking for? In a world of aliases and mystery, is anyone really who they say they are? What happens when anonymity is good for one but not the other?

Teaser / Excerpt:
“Joe, do we have to go through this again?” Andrew tried to control his temper. “I told you. I’m not interested.” He left the kitchen and plopped down on the sofa.

“You keep saying you want to find someone who can keep up with you in bed,” Joe said from the kitchen as he grabbed a fresh beer from the fridge.

“That’s not exactly what I said. I said I want someone who can keep up with me out of bed as well as in bed.” Andrew took a sip of his beer.

“Whatever,” Joe said as he sat down in the La-Z-Boy across from Andrew. “I’m telling you it’s worth it. In bed, out of bed, it was f**king amazing. They create these elaborate settings. It makes you feel like you’re really there. If nothing else you will appreciate that end of it.”

“Joe,” Andrew warned.

“Look, I’m going to badger you until you agree so why don’t you save us some time and energy and agree now. If you had a money problem, I’d let it go but you don’t, so—”

“Joe...” There was an edge in Andrew’s tone.

“Andy, you know how stubborn I can be.”

“And annoying.”

“Yeah that, too,” Joe said, lifting the bottle to his lips.

“And stupid.”

“Hey, now that’s going too far.”

“I’m sorry. I guess you’re right. I need to change something because I’m not getting anywhere this way.”

“I’m not saying you’ll find your dream girl, but it will be different.”

“A compound sentence or a relative thought from a female. That would be different.”

“I don’t have any trouble talking with women.”

“You”—Andrew pointed his beer at Joe—“need to take a look at your standards.”

Genre: Romantic Suspense


Book Blurb:
She thinks she’s fooled me. But I’ve known all along.

Almost.

Lily is hiding something, a secret so big, she came out of a year-long coma and her first instinct was to lie.

Who does that? Someone who is afraid. No—not afraid.

Terrified. And it’s my job to take that fear away.

My partner and I have spent countless man-hours hunting down the cold-blooded killer who did this to her. Meanwhile, Lily’s spent her waking hours recovering. Getting stronger. Getting smarter.

Staying beautiful.

Never get involved emotionally. That’s my dictate. Never get attached.

When you realize you’re caught in a triangle, it turns out there is no exit.

Crossing a line is easy. Holding a line takes strength.

Lily’s shooter knows that she’s my weakness.

One I have to get back.

No matter what it takes.

Excerpt/Teaser
I’ve always been able to identify with Lily and her wounds to understand her healing process, to grasp the subtle and not-so-subtle psychological developments that help her to reconstruct a self. What I didn’t feel enough, though, was empathy.

Putting yourself in another person’s shoes isn’t just about imagining the body. We can create little movies inside our minds as mirror neurons give us the ability to imagine ourselves in someone else’s place.

Going deep emotionally, though, is a skill set you can’t develop. The building blocks have to be inherently in place. It’s like fast-twitch muscles that allow athletes to go from great to Olympic level. You have it or you don’t. And if you don’t, you’ll never develop it.

If you do, it’s up to you to find a way to optimize it.

As we sit here eating, I focus on the food. Never underestimate the power of macronutrients in reestablishing stability and empathy, though there’s no perfect ratio of protein to carbs to fats to give yourself an edge in that department.

I’m sitting here at the table, feeling all these feelings, when Lily taps my hand. She’s freshly showered, her hair hanging in loose, wet waves around her face. Soaked through, the strands of her hair hang longer than they do when dry, giving her an even more wholesome look.

And covering the scar in the back of her skull.

She smiles at me. “You’re a million miles away.”

“No, ma’am,” I tell her. “I’m right here, present and on duty.”

“Must have a nice job if duty involves raclette.” She looks at the hot stone in front of us with melted cheese and an assortment of meats and other foods.

I have to laugh. “It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it.”

Leon Mauvais ~ an interview and his novel Sugar Plum'd


I AM PLEASED TO WELCOME AUTHOR
Leon Mauvais
Warning: Adult content.


 
 About the Author:
"Sugar Plum'd" is Leon Mauvais' debut! He's a beret-wearing sprite who fell asleep in the cornfields of Pennsylvania. He dreams in the husks, hoping his tales taste like taffy, but help build crystallized armor. Once, he lingered in the corners of the last used bookstores searching for forbidden adventures on exotic worlds.


BANTER – STUFF ABOUT YOU

Q: How would you describe yourself as a color? Think personality here. Are you a light and airy pastel person, or more of a deep, dark, sultry and mysterious color?
A: If I were a color, it would have to be cerulean. It’s a dark, rich shade of blue which can be found in our skies and oceans. I think most of us are drawn to the color blue and its varying degrees. Plus the name itself: cerulean. It just splashes into your ears, wetting the mind.

Q: When you think of a garden, do you picture vegetables or flowers?
A: I think hidden paradises. Groves with winged-guardians to beguile before reaching trees heavy with enchanted bounty.

Q: What is your least favorite word? Is there a reason?

A: “So yeah.” It’s a two-word phrase I throw down in my morning pages way too much when I’m stalling or drawing blanks. It’s my shorthand’s version of “Ummmmm...”

Q: What is the sexiest thing on a man?
A: At the moment I’m a pec man. Especially if they are hairy! A juicy, plump set to suckle! If I wake up the next day with a text from a last-night-lover saying their nipples are too sore to put their short on; then we know they’ve got a champion set.



BOOKS – ABOUT THE CRAFT

Q: When did you start writing and why?
A: I’ve been writing since childhood. It’s only recently that I’ve been dedicating more time to the craft of it.

Q: How did you come to write your genre of choice?
A: I’ve always been drawn to stories with fantastical places, be they under the sea or past all known galaxies. I’m drawn to mind-expanding worlds which reframe our present realities. Speculative, fantasy and science-fiction can challenge us to rethink and rebuild our world. They can show us the way to better tomorrows. They’re the genres of hope.

Q: Which holiday celebrations do you like to incorporate into your stories and why?
A: “Sugar Plum’d” is specifically a holiday tale, taking place in the North Pole at Santa’s Village. Most of my stories take place during festivals and celebrations now that I think about it. It’s probably because during such activities people and their communities are all heightened versions of themselves. It gives a writer a lot of space to play. 

Q: How long does it take you to create a novel?
A: Like every creature, the gestation depends upon the project clawing its way out.  


BOOKS - NOW LETS PROMOTE – STRUT YOUR STUFF 
Q: What are you working on now? Would you like to share anything about it?
A: I’m currently working on a werelobster tale which tales place on a cursed isle at a Lobsterfest. Also penning a Merhunk tale which flips the fin on MPREG stories and another piece about bullying between dessertiers of the French Court.

Q: Do you have a new book coming out soon? Tell us about it.
A: “Sugar-Plum’d” was released on December first of last year! It’s my debut and I’m excited to share it as a final parting gift from 2018! It’s a “50 Shades of Gay” meets “Rudolph” and “Mad Max” at Santa’s Workshop.

I also have a short story about a gender-swap R.Kelly harem tale about a rapper plagued with writer’s block releasing in a new JMS anthology on January 26th called, “The Dust Fields of Underburb.”

Q: How can we find you? Do you have a web page, FaceBook page or any buy links?
A: Twitter: @LeonMauvais
BLURB:

As a young weredeer, all Pembroke has ever dreamed of is being harnessed to Santa’s sleigh. Yet his world comes crashing down when Santa’s slain.

A war erupts in the Arctic Circle-pitting elf against reindeer.

Pembroke is sent on a perilous mission. If he fails, his herd will be lost. When the mission goes awry, the stag-shifter must put his trust in an unlikely ally.

Where does one turn in a land of ice and blood?

What happens when the enemy infiltrates your heart? What begins as a wavering alliance, takes both stag and elf farther than they both could ever imagine.

EXCERPT:

“I hear,” Kassel’s whispers filled the empty stalls of the barn, “the Toy-Maker can be quite demanding.”

Pembroke didn’t care.

He would prove himself.

He arched his back as if he was getting ready to be harnessed to the sleigh. His shoulders back, Pembroke held his head high. His flanks rising in the air, as if supporting an uplifted tail.

As if he was still in stag form.

“No.” Kassel said, “Like I’m really Him.”

Pembroke felt the rough sole of Kassel’s foot against the broadest part of his back. Pembroke was caught off guard by the pressure. His face forced down, Pembroke felt his haunches rise till his ass, like a halved plumb, split open for the Toy-Maker’s inspection.

Pembroke flinched as he felt the weight of a large buckle fall between his shoulder blades. Kassel dragged the cool metal down Pembroke’s spine, resting it on the small of his trembling back.

Kassel paused only for a second, before dragging the metal even further, splitting his friend’s cheeks, teasing the soft pink skin of Pembroke’s puckered hole.

Without thinking, Pembroke let his shoulders take the weight of his prostrate body as his fingers lifted to spread his cheeks further apart.

He felt Kassel’s hot breath blowing across.

“Now how many days till you guide my sleigh?” Kassel asked.

Thwack.

A sting blossomed against Pembroke’s hole. It leapt away as fast as it came. A bolt of lightning zapping through his body. The pain surprised him so much that he hadn’t heard the question.

Thwack!

There it was again.

Glyn Williams ~ guest post and his novel ~ Nature vs Nurture


Title: Nature Vs. Nurture
Author: Glyn Williams
Release Date: September 13, 2018





Author Bio:
My name is Glyn Williams; I am twenty five years old and from South Wales. All my life I’ve been the type of person who never quite knew what the future held for them, I always thought I’d just deal with what came my way but a few years ago something came my way I never expected. My vision began to decline and after several months of testing I was diagnosed with genetic Optic Nerve Atrophy leaving me visually impaired to a degree. At that time a lot changed for me in a negative way, feeling down and useless I began to think of things I could do to show I still have some worth. Over the years many ideas had crossed my mind so I decided to start writing a book, at first it was just for my own sense of accomplishment but the more I wrote the more I enjoyed it and my family urged me to consider getting it published. Part of me never thought it would happen but much to my surprise people seemed to like my story, suddenly I had achieved something great for the first time in my life and although I still have personal issues I struggle with I no longer feel completely useless.

Guest Post:
I began writing in October 2016, at first I treated writing very casually as I never thought it would come to anything. My condition was what got me started writing but when it came to thinking of a story worth writing, I’ve always been a fan of dark stories as I think these stories are more realistic due to the world being quite a dark place at times. I wanted my main character to be flawed, not to be a superhero figure as I think complex dark individuals are far more interesting and relatable. I am not religious myself but I thought it would be the basis of a great story due to its powerful characters and other-worldly elements, once I came up with a basic story idea I thought of a way to create a universe where science & religion could coexist and make sense. Then I thought to myself what people and beings would and could exist in this universe and how could they connect with each other and fit into the story? Over time small and big ideas came into my mind which I made sure to write down so they wouldn’t be forgotten. Eventually I took those ideas and arranged them into an order that would make a good story, something else I did was try to include as many actual things from major world religions as I could to both educate the reader and link the world in the story together.


Synopsis:
Alex Kane is a young, handsome & successful man living happily in Chicago Illinois. At this point in his life Alex has everything going for him, he has a good job managing his dad’s plumbing store, loving parents & grandparents who raised him to be a good kind-hearted man.

A series of tragic events brings out a dark soul crushing secret kept from Alex by the people he trusts most since the day he was born, in a single moment Alex’s ideal life is thrown upside down causing him to question not just his life but the whole of creation and his place in it. Sent down a dark and dangerous path, Alex’s family & friends must race to find and stop him, they make it their mission to save Alex from himself before it’s too late both for them and for the world.

The odds are against him, but Jerin will find a way! With or without the gene Kaley will be his…

On Setera, only one in four hundred thousand is born possessing the cryan gene—a gene essential to the survival of the Seteran race. Jerin and the others like him are duty bound to find the match to that gene somewhere in the universe, for it can no longer be found on Setera. With no clear instructions on how this task is to be accomplished it is a daunting undertaking, like finding a needle in a haystack.

Jerin’s assigned quadrant is Earth. After twelve years of searching he is beginning to lose hope, until the answer hits him over the head with a frying pan. Now all he has to do is convince this beautiful, feisty woman to follow him to another universe in a galaxy far far away.



Teaser/Excerpt:
Setting the scene - A hospital room. Kaley is in a coma.

Blast it all, they were leaving! “Don’t go! I want to know what happened.”

She watched her aunt, uncle and Jerin leave the room. Doctor Lynch took her wrist into his hand to take her pulse.

“Doctor, what happened?” she pleaded.

“Kaley, if you can hear me … fight this thing. I don’t know what’s happened to you. We will run tests, but I think it’s more up to you than us.”
