2015 GRL Featured Blog Tour: Lucy Marker

Starting from June 1, 2015, I will daily feature authors attending the three conventions I will join, Euro Pride in Munich (July), UK Meet in Bristol (September) and GRL in San Diego (October). Moreover I'm taking part at the 2015 GRL Featured Blog Tour as Featured Blogger.

For the 2015 Featured Blog Tour, today author is Lucy Marker, author of Broken Mercies from Dreamspinner Press:

Do you enjoy “real life” romances?
I love reading about heroes who face their worst in order to do their best. Messed up by circumstances beyond their control, these men and women are brave enough to take responsibility for their choices, overcome dire circumstances, and learn how to love. Their heroism helps me recognize the good in others and gives me hope in a world that often feels too dark for comfort.
Because I adore these stories, I created the same type of heroes in Broken Mercies. I fell a little bit in love with my guys, Dan and Jeremy. I wouldn’t mind being like them when I grow up.
While my writing focuses on male/male romance and women's fiction, I sharpen my escape-artist skills with several genres. I rely heavily on experts who promise my e-reader won’t explode as I load it up with male/male and other romances, fantasies, mysteries, romantic comedies, women's fiction, thrillers, and all sorts of series.
I hope to meet several of my favorite authors at the Gay Romantic Lit Retreat in October. I want to thank them for sharing their hard work and talent. I'm grateful for the life-like heroes they've given us.
I look forward to sharing this appreciation with other readers as well. See you in October!

Gay Romantic Lit Retreat:
Besides reading avidly from the works of GRL authors, I’ve come to know the community through social media. I’ve never encountered a more supportive, caring group. I recognize the particular type of kindness that develops as a result of surviving deep life struggles. Their collective sense of humor invites everyone to share a good belly laugh, and from the pictures and comments I’ve seen from other GRLs, I’m going to love my first GRL.
Cate Ashwood is producing a GRL goody-bag anthology of writing samples from attending authors (including mine). The tradition is to obtain as many autographs as possible. I promise to work very hard to maintain at least a small amount of dignity as I chase down these writers, but be warned. I will probably squeal when I meet them.

My thanks to Elisa for this opportunity to tell you about my novel!

Musician Daniel Gilchrist has decided he’s broken.
He doesn’t deserve Jeremy Evans, a sensible, sweet artist who insists they belong together. Bad choices after a hellish childhood make Dan more suited to guys like his ex-lover, a toxic mega-star who wants to resume their affair.
But Jeremy is irresistible, and he’s survived a few nightmares of his own. He challenges Dan to get rid of the false shame imposed by his mentally ill mother. Her twisted zealotry had influenced his choices, and it’s time to stop blaming himself for inadequately protecting his little sisters from her cruelty.
While Dan wrestles with old guilt, his ex-lover persuades him to collaborate on a song that protests religious bigotry. Dan grows suspicious of the star’s odd behavior, and then law enforcement shows up.
That clinches it—Dan really isn’t good enough for Jeremy. Somehow he’s managed to drag the poor guy into danger.



About the Author: I'm an escape artist. I learned very young how to run away into stories. Then I discovered the powerful magic of using my own words to create make-believe. Having survived some interesting real-life plot hooks, I now live happily ever after in the San Francisco Bay area with my husband, and our two adult children have moved on to create their own stories.
