New Release: Broken Bones

 

Happy Release Day to Deja Black! Her newest novel, Broken Bones, introduces readers  to a type of paranormal they don’t often see — Sandmen!

BrokenBonesFSBlurb:
Dan Tolliver, the adopted son of alpha pack leader Jeremiah Tolliver, has suffered his last moment of abuse by his lover Keith Mulligan and finds himself in the hospital. There he meets dark and sharp-tongued Dr. Aiden Kavanaugh, who believes Dan needs some of his straightforward kind of medicine. Still, there is something different about the doctor.

Aiden is a sandman, a weaver of dreams, and has been on earth far longer than even he knows. He’s at the end of his time, ready to transition, and needs a human mate to keep him connected to the world he’s grown to love. Only he hasn’t found a special person who makes him want to stay. He doesn’t despair, because not every sandman has the chance to choose, but he knows if he doesn’t find a partner, he will soon lose his physical form and exist only in dreams.

When Aiden realizes Keith is a far greater monster than Dan has any idea, they grow and work together using the support of the pack—and Dan’s inner strength—to overcome impossible odds.

Bio:

Deja has always had fantasies of men loving men, men who felt strongly, loved hard, and needed a hero. Then, one great day she came across a book, and she discovered the world of m/m writing, happened upon others who shared her obsession as much as she did and found her world where she could be not only be accepted for the lives and loves she envisioned, but she could create them, too. So, why not? 
Why not take the stories that she would write and throw away as a teenager, grow them, dream them and make them a reality where she could know her own characters, live their story and make them real for someone else?

And, she did. Now, with the support of her hubby and some intense time management she is learning to balance her family of two children at home and the many others she teaches each and every day with her passion, writing what she loves to read.

RIP Hugh Rawson

Found out I lost a great friend and author last night. Hugh Rawson had been fighting for a long time, but now is hopefully at peace.

Hugh worked in movies in his younger years, working his way up to an assistant producer to films such as Crocodile Dundee and Maria’s Lovers. There he met many people and touched their lives, and had wonderful stories to tell about his time on (and off) set. He worked with names such as Jon Kilik (Hunger Games), who he kept in touch with even after he traded big-time sets for small-town life.

He continued to engage the minds of others with his sci-fi book, Secrets of a Universe: The Mindkey Project. The first planned of seven, it is the only one released. I had the pleasure to work with him on it. He had an incredible imagination that will live on in his writing.

Rest well, my friend, and I’ll see you in the astral world.

New Release: Threefold Love

Untitled-1

 

Hello! I’m Ki Brightly. It’s absolutely lovely of Tricia to have my book on her blog. (Thank you!) Threefold Love was a fun book to write. I fell in love with the characters, and as accomplished as I felt when I finally typed the last word, I was kind of sad to be done with the book. Xavier was fun to write because it hurt, in a good way, to watch him opening up to Andrew, and then Duncan. Andrew was a mess when he realized he wanted Xavier, and then again when he realized he wanted the man in his life for keeps, not just because he was sexy. Andrew was fun to write because he’s smart and kind of geeky, but in a cute way. I liked Duncan because if he hadn’t been the man he was, this entire book could have turned into a red, hot angsty mess that no one could have scraped off the floor, not even with a squeegee and a bucket and ten gallons of Mr. Clean. Plus, he has an enduring love with an evil cat.

I think, all said and done, one of my favorite characters from this book is someone not mentioned on the back cover-Curtis. He’s Andrew’s little brother and he’s a ball of miserable anger. Really, he’s not happy until he’s upsetting someone else, which doesn’t sound very endearing, but there’s obviously something going on beneath the surface there. Since I couldn’t stop thinking and dreaming about these characters he’s going to be front and center for the next book, but before I get there with him, I hope you enjoy Threefold Love. Happy reading!
