free fiction friday fb

As some of the people reading my blog know, I am not doing  the Wednesday Briefs Group anymore. I wanted to do something a bit different with my free fiction posts and felt a new format would better suit what I want to do.  I made some good friends there and still think they are a great group of authors.  If you’re not following them, you should.  There is a lot of good stories being offered for free.

For me, I wanted more freedom than the Wednesday Briefs format allows. I want to write without having to use weekly prompts or have a hard word count.  I want to be able to post stories that are finished rather than come up with new chapters every week.  To that end, Grace R. Duncan and I have come…

BLOG TOUR – GUEST POST: “Running Wild” by SE Jakes

"Boys in Our Books"...


Thanks so much to Boys in Our Books for hosting me on the tour for Running Wild: Havoc Book 1.  This is the start of a brand new series, with different heroes for each book and HEAs at the end of each book.  Sean Rush and Ryker stole my heart a long time ago, and I’m excited for you guys to meet all of them.


The PNR Element or, huh, I didn’t think I wrote PNR…

Well, at least not as SE Jakes.  I didn’t think I did anyway, but it’s interesting what’s considered PNR—it’s definitely a big umbrella.  To me, having someone who’s got a bit of second sight (and I fully admit that I have it as well) isn’t PNR to me, unless the rest of the book is set in a PNR world.

I mean, I’m not paranormal, am I (looks around for answer)? If…

That’s Who I Am by Jayden Brooks: Excerpt & Giveaway!

The Blogger Girls

Hello! I want to thank The Blogger Girls for letting me hang out and share my recent release, That’s Who I Am.

An Excerpt from That’s Who I Am

by  Jayden Brooks

For the first time, my nose caught a whiff of the delicious aroma of roasting meats and something sweet. My stomach chose that moment to give a plaintive growl. I clutched my belly in surprise and embarrassment. “It smells great. Is her cooking edible?”

Sophie’s smack to the back of my head had me ducking and rubbing the abused spot. “Hey, that wasn’t a gentle tap, brat.” She hit me again. Hard. I leveled a glare at the sassy miss.

Hands on hips, she cocked her hip and wagged a finger in my face. “Watch your mouth about my cooking or you’ll be relying on Donovan.”

Donovan’s deep laughter filled the room. “She’s standing between us and starvation…

Honorary Blogger Langley Hyde: Summer Reads + Highfell Grimoires Giveaway

The Blogger Girls

Heather C:  The lovely Langley Hyde is here today at TBG talking her new steampunk book  Highfell Grimoires (its amazing!) and a crazy summer reading incident.  Oh, and there is a giveaway!


Summer Reads

by Langley Hyde

Recently, my book Highfell Grimoires has had the honor of being named in the Publisher’s Weekly Best Summertime Books list (you can find it under the fantasy/sci-fi section) and that got me thinking. What’s a summertime book, exactly? 

Summertime books are supposed to be fluffy. But, asking an average college student what summertime read they’re going to pursue would evoke a variety of answers. One guy might give you a dogged look and say, “Anna Karenina,” while the girl next to him would say, brightly, “I’m going to reread everything by Horror McGoreson.” 

When I think of summertime reading, I think of Costa Rica and lying on my stomach on a sandy beach…

Hop Against Homophobia and Transphobia

Draven St. James

HAHAT 2014

Welcome to my blog and thank you for your support in hopping against Homophobia and Transphobia!  It is so important that we show our love and support to every amazing individual in the phenomenal rainbow that is our community.  🙂  So this May 17th (and every day after), take the time to celebrate our differences!

Love is Love. Those three words are simple, but so powerful. There is a liberty found within those words. There are no boundaries to the emotions that we experience. Rather, there are no expectations of how we should feel and how we shouldn’t. That freedom is one of the elements I most enjoy as a writer of m/m erotic novels. I craft stories that bring to life love and lust without constraints.

I’ve had the great joy of opening the eyes of some of my friends over the past year. Out of support they have read…
