Quillon’s Covert Receives Runner-Up Award – 2016 Rainbow Awards

Louis Stevens and I are so proud to have taken part in the 2016 Rainbow Awards. This year’s event saw over 400 books submitted, with 165 participating judges, and raised more than $14,000 for LGBT charities. We are humbled beyond words that Quillon’s Covert not only reached the final round, but also garnered a prestigious Runner-up award in the Erotic Romance category. We’d like to offer our sincere thanks to everyone who participated, and to Elisa Reviews for holding the yearly event. Lastly, our most heartfelt congratulations to all the authors who received awards.

A full copy of the judge’s review for Quillon’s Covert can be found here.

Quillon’s Covert Receives Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention

rainbow_award_honorable_mention


Hey Everyone!

So this really, REALLY cool thing happened: Quillon’s Covert received an Honorable Mention in the 2016 Rainbow Awards! And, to be completely honest, it blew me away — for several different reasons.

I’d like thank everyone who encouraged Louis Stevens (my coauthor) and me to submit the book for consideration, including our brilliant editor, Jack L Pyke, of Men In Ink. To say that I was hesitant is putting it mildly. Had it not been for y’all, we probably wouldn’t have even contemplated a submission. So, again, my sincere thanks!

Why was I hesitant? Well, there’s no beating around the bush here, it’s an incest book, right? Hence, there were all sorts of questions running about my head: Would there even be a category it’d fit in? Would the esteemed panel of reviewers even select it once it was submitted? If it did happen to be chosen for review, would the reader enjoy it? And these are just a few of the many thoughts telling me it’d be better all around to forgo the notion.

Sure, I suppose considering the book’s history, I probably should have had more faith in its chances. Indeed, Quillon’s Covert has surprised us at every step along the way. It’s been embraced in a way neither Louis nor myself could’ve possibly imagined; it’s received amazing reviews, made best seller lists, and generated some of the most beautiful reader correspondence I’ve ever had the pleasure of receiving.

So, again, please let me offer my most sincere and heartfelt thanks to each of you who’ve found something special in our way-outside-of-the-box love story. I can’t begin to put into words our humble gratitude!

Peace,
JLT

Another month has come to an end. I read more books in April than I have any month this year so far. That said I have 10 books as my Top Reads this month. Technically 11 but one of them is free to buy so it’s not part of the giveaway at the end. I will however add the link so you can get the free book.
These books stood out to me. They are stuck in my head and hopefully will never leave. It needs to be said this was super difficult. I read so man amazing books and you authors really and truly rocked my world this month. So thank you!

Quillon’s Covert – Beautiful Review – The Way She Reads

quillon_fb_group1.jpg

Helena says:

I fell in love with this story and the two men in it from the first paragraph. The gentle pace in which this story is told makes the changing relationship between Martin and Marty feel natural. I fully expected to at least be shocked while reading this book but I can’t say I even raised my eyebrows once.

Read the full review here.
