Is life random or is it something more? People's lives weave and interweave in many different and unexpected ways as Becca Hammond discovers. It starts with a plane ride home from a meeting for her family business. Can she understand the connections before they strangle her and close the collection and credit counseling business her father worked so hard to build? Shelly James graduated college and went to work at the Federal Trade Commission with the hope and intention of helping people. She never dreamed that several years later she would be burned out and ready for change. She isn't looking for romance. She wants a new place to start over and a different way to use her knowledge of facts and number crunching to assist people in more direct than ethereal ways. Becca and Shelly end up crossing paths, colliding, and ricocheting around each other. Neither is looking for love, just a way to follow their career dreams. They agree, nothing can or will happen despite an early attraction. It is business and only business. When you've been hit and run over by love, is it possible to trust again? To love again? Can anyone really escape the web of the Fates, and should they try?

A self described recluse, artist, and acclaimed author, Tori Monroe is used to being self-reliant. She has chosen a life where she grows and hunts for as much of her food supply as possible. When she isn't outside keeping herself fed, she is writing under one of two pseudonyms or creating canvasses for display in distant galleries. She has spent most of her adult life working and living in seclusion. When Tori is injured while hunting, she seeks help at the closest small town. Once there, things begin to happen fast. A hand surgeon who does research on blood disorders, a clinical psychologist who helps people deal with the stress brought on by intense life events, and even the hospital staff get overly interested in her care. Tori learns that what really happened to her out in the woods was more than a hunting accident. She has been infected with a strange virus that will change her in literal and figurative ways she never imagined.

GRL Featured Blog: C.L. Etta

Let Me Introduce Myself

Hola from The Land of Enchantment. I want to thank Elisa for hosting me today. I’m C.L. Etta, a novice author whose first book, Heartache and Hope was released for publication in July by Pride Publishing. This ride has been quite a high for me.

Imagine, I went from enrolling in a creative writing class to nurture my creative muse, to writing not one buy four novels. The second book, Heart and Home, is scheduled for preorder from Pride on October 25. Heart and Home continues the story of Kevin, Raphael and Robbie, the boys introduced in Heartache and Hope. The third book in the series, Hound and Harmony, has been submitted to Pride.

The fourth book, Love’s Tethered Heart, has been contracted with Dreamspinner Press for publication early next year. I’m proud of all my work to date, but this title holds a special place in my heart. I can hardly wait to share it with you. Danny and Mico spoke to me so clearly while I was writing Heart and Home, that I left it on the shelf, in order to tell their story. In the US, Dreamspinner is the gold standard publisher for our genre. I’m honored at being included in their family.

GRL is four weeks away, and I’m squirming because I’m so eager to meet all the attendees: authors whose work I’ve enjoyed, authors whose work is new to me, fans who love this genre as much as I do, and friends I know only through social media. I hope to meet you all. Look for the short, round woman with the silver hair, wandering the halls and holding a margarita. That’ll be me. Now, let’s meet the boys from The Beyond Heartache series.



Heartache and Hope

Book one in the Beyond Heartache series

After heartache comes hope…

At eighteen, Kevin Monroe has learned that mothers don’t always love their sons, Dad’s fists
can break your bones and a closet gets mighty crowded with two. After the boy next door
breaks his trust and his heart, Kevin departs Albuquerque, New Mexico, determined to live
his life out and proud as the man he is meant to be. With Diamondback tickets in his pocket,
Kevin leaves his heartache behind to pursue his long-time hope of entertaining as a drag
queen.

Fear has ruled Raphael Delgado since he first realized he was gay—fear of discovery, fear that
he can’t support his disabled mama and fear that he has lost Kevin forever. Against a backdrop
of familial love and obligation, Raphael struggles to find the courage to accept his sexuality,
while hoping to leave the fragile confines of his closeted life.
While watching a Diamondback game on television, Raphael spots Kevin kissing a man in the
crowd. His first reaction is fear for Kevin’s safety and his second, fear that Kevin will never
come home.

Can love be restored long distance? Will love’s key be strong enough to unlock Raphael’s closet door? And who is the red-haired beauty wrapped in Kevin’s arms?
