Rafflecopter of Matchstick Men

Hey Everyone!

As we know, there are countless amazing books released every single day, and having yours noticed is either a stroke of incredible luck or – most often – it’s achieved by the kindness of others: family, friends, readers, reviewers.

I posted not too long ago about two such amazing books: On His Knees and Matchstick Men by Adira August.

In that post I spoke about being a submissive and the difficulty I’m often presented with when finding books (I feel) accurately reflect the healthy, happy, strong, well-adjusted individuals I believe us to be. Again, these two books do that in a very entertaining way; after all, reading fiction is mostly about entertainment, right? *smiles* Oh yeah, these books hit ‘all the right spots’ in that respect, too. *naughty grins*

Circling back to the first paragraph above, and how challenging it can be to get your book noticed, a few friends and I teamed up to pay it forward and, hopefully, get these two books a bit more well-deserved recognition. Paired with the generous hosts sites listed below, is a Rafflecopter offering twenty <20> eBook copies of Matchstick Men.

So, if you’re interested in reading a few books where, in my humble opinion, the author gets it (submissives) right, download the Instafreebie copy of On His Knees, and then enter the giveaway for Matchstick Men. With both, you’ll find vivid characters, well-rounded stories, and an utterly beautiful D/s dynamic. But, fair warning, you may also find yourself with a major book hangover. *winks*

Last, but certainly not least, I’d like to offer our sincere gratitude not only to the blog sites which are hosting this giveaway, but to all reviewers. Y’all are incredible! The devotion of time and energy in reading books, composing helpful recommendations, and generally assisting authors is unmeasurable – just as our eternal thanks is. Yeah, y’all effin’ rock!

To enter the Rafflecopter giveaway, click any of these gracious host sites:

Attention Is Arbitrary
Books Laid Bare Boys
Diverse Reader
Kimmers’ Erotic Book Blog (includes a review)
OJ He Say!
The Blogger Girls (includes a review)
The Way She Reads (includes a review)

Peace, happy reading, and best of luck with the giveaway,

Two Great D/s Reads

Hey everyone!

It’s been awhile since my last post, but I had to share two books I recently had the pleasure of reading: On His Knees and Matchstick Men. They’re part of (what I hope will be a long running) series.

In the past I’ve written about being a submissive, and what that means to me personally. I’ve also written about how I view myself, how I view my needs, how I view my service, and how I can sometimes be slightly less than thrilled with the way submissives are frequently portrayed in M/M fiction.

Submissives are real people, with real needs and desires. And, in my experience, we are healthy, happy, strong, well-adjusted individuals. Yet most of the submissives I read don’t come across as such. I don’t particularly want to delve into a deep discussion about why we tend to be portrayed the way we are, that’s really not the point of this post.

What is the point are two great reads by Adira August I wanted to share with you. In my truly humble opinion, this author gets it (submissives) right…and it’s a pure joy to read.

On His Knees is a short introduction (a novelette of 63 pages) to the two main characters, and it’s available via Instafreebie until August 1st, 2017.

Matchstick Men picks up where On His Knees leaves off, and continues on with the main characters’ stories – while incorporating an intriguing murder mystery.

Both are incredibly entertaining D/s reads which also incorporate accurate, positive, realistic portrayals (flaws and all) of submissives – again, in my humble opinion.

If they end up in your library, I truly hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Peace,

Hardcover Editions of Grif’s Toy and Wes’ Denial

Hey Everyone!

I’m so excited to announce Grif’s Toy and Wes’ Denial are now both available in hardcover. Woohoo!

I decided to make them exclusive to Lulu due to redistribution pricing – of which I have no control over. Meaning, each would need to retail at other marketplaces (such as Amazon and Barnes and Noble) for upwards of $40.00 – which is insane! However, with copies sold via Lulu I’m able to offer a massive discount – not something I’m allowed to do with other retailers.

If you’re interested in a hard Grif or Wes *winks*, check out this LINK.

Peace,

There’s a great new LGBTQ book directory site called Queeromance Ink. It’s only been open a bit over a week now and there’s already tons of authors/books listed. Give ’em a quick peek and see what you think.

Oh, and one of the really cool things is the site supports PayHip links. All of my PayHip titles include a 25% discount off of the cover price when you share the link on social media!
