I just realized that over half the three months that remained when the Amber Quill authors got word of the firm's closing has passed. So I need to remind friends and fans that the Deirdre O'Dare books are going to be gone in just over five weeks. Right now you can still get them at the Amber Quill site and on various venders such as All Romance E-Books. I encourage you to check out Deirdre's pages at the Amber Quill site and see which books you do not have and want to add to your collection while you can. Here's the link to get started. http://www.amberquill.com/store/m/137-Deirdre-O-Dare.aspx There are four pages following the first one listing all my titles, both the Amber Heat (straight) and Amber Allure (GLBT).
I am still trying to decide what I m going to do with this bunch of tales. Some of them I will probably re-release as self-published books but it's hard to decide which ones. Several of my favorites have not been my best sellers so will it be worth reissuing them? I am pretty sure the Canine Cupids series will be available somewhere within the coming year. Beyond that it's pretty much up for grabs!
So for now here are a couple of other titles to perhaps pique your interest. These are two contemporary gay stories that released a month apart a few years back. We were in a monochrome cover style right then!
You Were Always on My Mind is of course the title of a song covered by a range of artists over the years. We were doing a PAX collection based on song titles and this one reached out to me. I saw almost at once a pair of men who had known each other in high school as friends and one night late in their senior year they got drunk together and things went off in a new direction. They parted very soon afterwards but as it turned out, neither one ever quite forgot...When events put them back together, would the old attraction come alive again?
Here is the blurb and the cover--which illustrates one scene just perfectly...
Garth Talent could never forget Peter Nightrider, his best bud from high school, or the one drunken night they shared exploring each other’s bodies. He’s spent fifteen years with that memory and has never found anyone to erase it.
