Thanks for hosting me today as part of my blog tour for One Word, the 3rd book in my Hidden Places series from Dreamspinner Press.
I have a Rafflecopter running as part of the tour so be sure to enter. 
As this is the last stop on my blog tour for this book, where next? is a question I figured was a good topic to finish with.  It’s also one that is two-fold, and I’ve invited some guests for the second part of it. 
Firstly, what’s up next for me as a writer?  Prelude to Love is releasing on 2nd January from Dreamspinner Press as part of their Dreamspun Desire range. I’m especially excited about this one, as it’s set in Wellington and one of the guys is a music teacher.
Now I’m almost done with months of rounds of edits and blogging with several new releases in short succession, I’m looking forward to getting back to writing.  Lou Sylvre and I are co-writing The Harp and the Sea which is an historical with a touch of magic set in the 18th century on the Isle of Skye.  While Lou is writing Robbie’s scenes, I’ll be working on A Sword to Rule, which is the 2nd and final book of my Dragons of Astria series.
Secondly, what’s next for the Hidden Places series?  To answer this one, I’m handing over the rest of the post to my special guests, Tomas Kemp and Cathal Emerys, while I go refill my tea.
Tomas waits a few moments before turning to his husband. “Do you think she’s really gone?” 
Cathal shakes his head. “Authors are never really gone,” he whispers. “They just pretend they are, and then wait until you’re lulled into a false sense of security before....”  He shudders.
Tomas puts one arm around him. “Hey, not all authors do that. I’m nice to my characters.”
Cathal rolls his eyes. “I’m reading your latest book as you write it, remember? And I know what you have planned for those guys.”
“They have to work for their happy ending! I thought you agreed with me on that.” Tomas sounds indignant, but amused at the same time.
“Hey, guys, we’re talking about my writing, not Tomas’s,” the author reminds them.
“Case, and point,” Cathal says smugly. He settles back on the sofa and gazes out their bedroom window for a moment.  When he speaks again, it’s softly, and his voice sounds strained. “Do you remember what my sister said to you before she stopped time and sent us back to your world?”
Tomas pulls Cathal closer. “I’ll never forget it. She told me that we were both bound to your world, as were those of your blood, and said we would be called.  I didn’t like the sound of it then, and I still don’t.”
“Trouble is coming to Naearu,” Cathal says. “They will need our help, and when they ask we will go.  There is a price to be paid for everything, and I hope the one I pay will not to be too high.”
We pay,” Tomas corrects him firmly. “Whatever happens we’ll be facing it together.”
“And you won’t be facing it alone,” the author adds. “There’s a reason why I told Donovan and Ethan’s story before I write Dragon’s Price, which is the final book in the series.”
“You can take your time writing it too, and reconsider that title. I don’t like it. Cat’s paid enough with everything he’s been through.” Tomas shivers. “Give that vampire another story first. And I know those guys with the psi powers have been waiting a while too.”
The author raises an eyebrow. “What have you heard that I don’t know?” she asks. “Give me a moment to refill my tea.  We need to have words....

About One Word, A Hidden Places Story

Ethan Leavitt arrives in the idyllic village of Oakwood to search for a missing friend. Having always prided himself on his ability to find rational explanations, Ethan’s trust in concrete evidence and logic is tested by the mystery of Oakwood and Tomas’s disappearance.

Donovan Campbell’s happy, sometimes flippant, exterior hides a past he’d rather forget. As he struggles with his memories and to hold on to the inn he owns with his best friend, the last thing Donovan needs is for some guy he’s only just met to start getting under his skin. When a bank robbery escalates into a dangerous situation, Donovan must embrace a part of himself he can no longer ignore in order to save a future that might never have the chance to exist.

Ethan learns that often the person you’re looking for is not the one you find. But have he and Donovan both realized that too late….

Book 1: Cat's Quill
Book 2: Magic's Muse

Excerpt:

“I’m so sorry, Jane,” Ethan said, “and I apologize for my insensitivity earlier. It was completely out of line.”

She managed a shaky smile. “Thank you for being understanding. Good afternoon, gentlemen. I guess it’s a good thing that I have the day off, isn’t it?”

“I’m sorry for kicking you,” Donovan said after she’d left.

“I can be an insensitive jerk at times. Lord knows, I’ve been told that often enough.”

“Not always. You’ve got a kind side to you too.”

Ethan’s concern for Jane had been real enough, as was his mortification that he’d been rude once he’d seen that she was upset.

“You say that like it’s a good thing.” Ethan retrieved his napkin from the side of his plate and wiped his mouth. “Sometimes it’s not, you know. People take advantage. Not that I’m saying she is, but….” He sighed. “Just forget it, okay.”

“Okay.” Donovan wondered who had hurt Ethan and recently. He’d seen enough to connect the dots. “Lots of assholes in this world, unfortunately.”

“And some decent people too. Oakwood’s been good for reminding me of that.”

“Are you sure you’re okay to come to London with me tomorrow?” Donovan couldn’t help but think that something in their conversation had triggered Ethan’s reaction. He’d said Mitchell and Vincent were good friends. Perhaps it was this acquaintance he’d mentioned? The one who had introduced him to them.

“I’m looking forward to it.” Ethan glanced at Donovan’s empty plate. “Have you had enough lunch?”

“Yes, thanks. I was hungrier than I realized.” Donovan finished the last of his beer.

“I went to see the owner of the Chronicle the other day, but he was too busy to talk and suggested we meet briefly today instead. I’m hoping, as he’s been working at the newspaper a while, he can tell me some old stories about Oakwood that didn’t end up in print. You’re welcome to come if you’d like.”

“Thanks for the offer, but I need to do some work at the inn this afternoon. We had to replace some weatherboards a few months ago, and I need to get them painted before winter.” Donovan wished he could have said yes, but Heidi was stressing about it. If he didn’t get onto it soon, she’d be out there doing it herself, and she did enough already. Part of their agreement in taking on the inn was that they split the workload between them, and Donovan made sure he pulled his weight. “You’re okay to find your own way back?”

“Yes, I’ll be fine. Thanks for asking.” Ethan pushed back his chair and walked over to the counter to pay for their meal. “I’ll see you later, at the inn.”

“Okay. Sounds good.” Donovan didn’t follow him immediately but instead stayed at the table watching Ethan at the counter. His hair curled up slightly at the back, his jacket falling to mid-ass, not quite covering it. He had a very nice ass.

Bet he kisses well too.

Oh fuck. Donovan closed his eyes for a moment. Where the hell had that thought come from? He was falling for the guy, wasn’t he—falling for a guy who wasn’t interested and would be walking out of his life in a couple of days.

Donovan heard footsteps walking away. He opened his eyes just in time to see Ethan disappear out the door. It was time to leave and bury himself in the work he needed to get done. He stood and headed for the door, giving Eoin and his friends a wave as he passed their table.

He hadn’t missed the money the three men had given Craig or the grins they all wore.

Donovan groaned. Great, that was all he needed. The pub door slammed as he stalked through it. Yep, they were running another betting pool all right.

It wasn’t his fault they were wasting their time. They’d find that out soon enough for themselves.

About Anne Barwell


Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand.  She shares her home with two cats who are convinced that the house is run to suit them; this is an ongoing "discussion," and to date it appears as though the cats may be winning.


In 2008 she completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra.

She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as "too many." These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of "spare time" is really just a myth. She also hosts other authors, reviews for the GLBTQ Historical Site “Our Story” and Top2Bottom Reviews, and writes monthly blog posts for Authors Speak and Love Bytes.

Anne’s books have received honorable mentions four times and reached the finals three times in the Rainbow Awards.  She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical.

About Saving Alexander:

Punishing himself for a horrific past that is not his fault, bestselling author Alexander Montgomery seeks redemption and love—and perhaps he will find it.

 Famous author though he may be, Alexander Montgomery is not someone you take home to meet Mother. Seriously flawed, damaged by a horrific past, he’s trying hard to claw his way back to normality. But how can anyone respect what he truly is? His therapy involves regular sessions at Study in Scarlet, an exclusive S&M club.

 Then comes Sage. Tall, with black hair and blue eyes, an up-and-coming actor with impossible charm and boy-next-door good looks, he’s the perfect choice to play the leading man in a TV adaptation of Alex’s last best-seller. Even more, he is a man you introduce to your family. Which Alex would do—if he weren’t taken by another man who offers the punishments Alex prays will wipe away the past and make him the person he wants to be. Yet, perhaps there is another path to redemption. If only the solution would reach out and touch him. 

Excerpt:

Alex stood as Christopher Sage entered the room and kissed Jenny in greeting. The older woman smiled delightedly, giving him a warm hug. 

Alex studied the man who had invaded his dreams more than once and been instrumental in bringing his sexual fantasies to a literal climax. 

He was even more delicious in person. And the man was gay. That was a real bonus. 

Six-foot-and-some tall, longish curly black hair, deep blue eyes that crinkled when he smiled and a rangy body that looked as if it were made to wear fine suits or nothing at all. In tight blue jeans and a checked long sleeve shirt with a white tee shirt underneath, Sage looked very relaxed. 

Alex had a sudden image of peeling off the shirt to find a nice set of pectoral muscles beneath, then running his hands over them. The other man’s mouth was extremely kissable, with generous lips that Alex wanted to nibble. His cock shifted in his chinos at the images his mind was conjuring up and he cursed the sudden rush of heat to his groin. 

Jesus, where was his professionalism now? He needed to get a bloody grip before anyone noticed his raging hard-on. 

He reached out his hand to Sage, who was returning the scrutiny. Sage’s hand was warm and firm with long fingers and clean, shaped nails. Alex’s breath deepened at his touch. He hoped Sage hadn’t noticed. 

The reality of feeling his warm skin in his own hands was infinitely better than the dream. 

Sage met his gaze and narrowed his eyes.. “Heterochromia iridis. I’ve never seen it in a human being before. Very striking.”

Alex stared at him. Most people simply squinted and looked at him strangely before they asked him how his eyes came to be two different colours— one green, one blue. Actually hearing someone who knew what the condition was called was slightly disconcerting. Especially when rendered in that very charming slight Irish accent. 

“I was born like this.” He shook Sage’s hand firmly. “Not many people seem to know what it’s called though.”

Sage smiled. “I had a horse once with the same condition. He was a Pinto. It’s quite common in that breed.”

Alex raised a dark eyebrow. “Comparing me to a horse? Well, that’s one way to start a relationship.”

K-Lee Klein's Unbroken Hearts, Bk 2 in the Unbreak My Heart Series, is out!

K-Lee Klein's "Unbroken Hearts", Book 2 in the Unbreak My Heart Series, is out!

Now available at Dreamspinner Press,
Unbreak My Heart: Book Two

Country singer turned rancher Brett Taylor fought his way out of the bottle so he could have JT Campbell in his life. JT's patience, intelligence, and humor broke through Brett's walls of depression, and now the once-isolated rancher and his young California guy in search of himself are together on Brett's Texas ranch.
While Brett and JT are more in love than ever, they’re still dealing with past baggage and learning how to move forward. Brett’s former lover casts a long shadow over their lives—one JT tries to pretend doesn’t bother him. Can Brett soothe his fears with the sort of sappy, sentimental Valentine’s Day JT was taught to shun growing up—but secretly always wanted?
When Halloween rolls around, a costumed night out at the local bar might lead to another romantic first. And on Christmas morning, JT awakes to some sweet loving and the most meaningful gift he could ever imagine. The New Year truly brings a new beginning—ushered in by some silly, sparkly, and sexy fun.
One year. Four important holidays. Two men who have worked hard for the love and trust they share and the bright future that’s finally within their grasp.
Book One, Unbreak My Heart, can be found here!

DRAMA CRUISE (the third Nicky and Noah mystery)
by Joe Cosentino, performed by Brad Enright
Are you a Nicky and Noah fan? If so, you’ve enjoyed lots of laughs, sweet romance, and mind-teasing mysteries. How were the Nicky and Noah mysteries conceived? As a college theatre professor/department head, I realized a college theatre department is rife with humor, romance, mystery, and lots of drama! Since I have a passion for cozy mysteries full of humor, the settings are cozy, the clues and murders (and laughs) come fast and furious, and there are enough plot twists and turns and a surprise ending to keep the pages turning quickly. And who doesn’t love romance? So at the center of each novel is a touching gay romance between Play Directing professor Nicky Abbondanza and Acting professor Noah Oliver.

ONE YEAR PUBLIVERSARY
¸.•*´(¸.•*´(¸.•*´★`*•.¸)`*•.¸)`*•.

Zac's Mulligan, Guarding The Gods book 1 by Author Ann Lister 
It's been one whole year since the first book in the spin off series from The Rock Gods was launched.

About Zac's Mulligan

Zac Mulligan is a former Marine now providing personal security for the infamous rock band, Black Ice. Seeing all the guys around him in committed relationships reminds him of his childhood best friend . . . the only person Zac has never managed to get out of his head or his heart.

Ben Holland is an artist. Falling deeply in love with his best friend in his teens, Ben is left alone when Zac leaves him for the military. Ben heads off to college and lives his life “out and proud” as a gay man and creates a brand name for himself with his artwork. Throughout all the years that pass, Ben never forgets his childhood friend, Zac, or the feelings they once shared.

Zac realizes a decade is too long for Ben not to have a presence in his life and finds Ben living on Cape Cod where they spent their summers as kids. Meeting each other as adults stirs up a lot of memories for both of them.

Zac is looking for a mulligan, a “do over,” with his childhood best friend. The question is: Can Ben find a way to put aside his old hurts and fully open his heart to Zac for a second time? Or maybe the past is something better left buried on the beach where it all began.

#Giveaway! Welcome to the blog tour for Comes a Horseman by Anne Barwell! Anne talks A Matter of Perspective!


Join me in welcoming Anne Barwell to my blog today with her newest novel, Comes a Horseman, the sequel to Shadowboxing, Book Three in the Echoes Rising Series! She also gives us a terrific commentary! Don't forget to scroll down and enter the giveaway!

Comes a Horseman is now available at
DSP PublicationsAmazon, Barnes & NobleKobo,
and Google Books! 
Book 1: Shadowboxing
Book 2: Winter Duet

 A Matter of Perspective 

Thanks for hosting me today as part of my blog tour for Comes a Horseman, the 3rd and final book in my WWII Echoes Rising series from DSP Publications.
I have a Rafflecopter running as part of the tour so be sure to enter. 
I prefer to read and write flawed characters, rather than protagonists who are always right, and antagonists who are two-dimensional virtual moustache whirlers.  I think they’re more interesting, and I like a bit of emotional angst in my stories.
Good people make mistakes, and especially during war, find themselves in a position where they need to follow a course of action they wouldn’t usually.  In Echoes Rising the team have so far been focused on getting Kristopher and the information he carries to the Allies.  But now, they’re having doubts about whether this is the best course of action, and whether their mission should succeed.  Add in the complication of having feelings for someone else in their team. What sacrifices will they need to make in order to ensure that person’s survival? A person who in usual circumstances wouldn’t kill anyone reacts differently when someone they love is threatened.
Or do they?

a young man from drowning at his local pool. 
Title: My Hero Series: Hero #1
Release Date: September 28th, 2013

  When he was sixteen years old, Rich Miller saved a young man from drowning at his local pool. Little did he know that years later, as a senior in college and Olympic diving hopeful, Rich would meet up once again with Johnny Milloway, now a big football player – and when Rich says big, he really means ‘bear’. The shy jock remembers his savior, and the two men become friends. Johnny isn’t put off by the fact that Rich is gay. In fact, the more time he spends with Rich, the more curious he becomes. Johnny wants to know all kinds of things – what it’s like to kiss a guy, for instance. Only it doesn’t stop there… Rich finds it difficult to believe that this relationship can go anywhere. Johnny is straight, and Rich isn’t prepared to deal with the heartache he knows will come his way in the future. He has enough on his plate as it is – the Worlds are just around the corner, his father would rather watch a football game than spend time watching his son dive…. What he doesn’t count on is Johnny, who can be very determined. And having Johnny in his life proves to be a catalyst for some pretty earth-shattering changes.

#BlogTour #Giveaway! The Hunger Within - Lily Luchesi and What Inspired Her to Write The Hunger Within

Vampirism isn't all sex, blood, and handcuffs. * She's not all whips and orgasms.

What inspired me to write The Hunger Within


The Hunger Within really started with A Bloody Legacy, the 15k word novelette I released this past April with Hot Ink Press.

BDSM has always been interesting to me, not just because of the sexual aspect but the psychological one as well. It takes two entirely different types of people to be doms/dommes and subs, and different reasons for why each role appeals to them. However, I never thought about writing it at all, though I had penned some erotica short stories for anthologies.
