The Odd Couple is up for Pre-Order

Releasing May 6th
Blurb:
Unlike the popular bank, Chase Whittaker has no money. However, living on the northwest side of Chicago in a rundown building with no car, and no savings hasn’t made him totally undesirable. His good looks and charm make up for everything he seems to lack. Still, it’s not enough to stop his landlord from threatening to sell the building where he owns the store his grandfather opened.
Micah Strickland is the child of famous football player Thomas Strickland and a ghostwriter. Though he’s never hurting for money, He can’t seem to find a man who wants the same things he does. Insecurities about being accepted as a gay and black man also prohibit him from being happy. He does everything to prove he fits in and even after all that, Micah hasn’t found anyone who’s interested in a committed relationship.
When Micah visits Chase’s shop, the sparks fly almost immediately. Chase makes Micah feel special and seems to understand Micah’s battle with wanting to be accepted. But the possible relocation of the bookstore is a dark cloud over their budding romance.
As one issue lends itself to another, Micah finds himself battling what he’s feeling for Chase and loyalties to his father. The question now becomes, will he be able to honor his father without losing the man he’s come to love?

Deadline: May 31, 2016
Payment: 50% net royalties from all channels, to be paid quarterly
Contract: 2 years exclusive, nonrenewable (current authors already published with us may request our standard renewable contract)

There’s nothing quite as magical as falling in love in the summertime. Maybe it’s the way the heat shimmers off oiled muscles, or all that tanned skin exposed by barely-there Speedos and short shorts. Or the feel of a warm T-shirt stretched tightly across firm abs.

The days seem to last forever and the nights are twice as long. Whether the summer is a time for passions that have simmered all winter long to finally boil over, or a chance to find new love on vacation, we want to hear about it!

We are looking for short, sexy M/M romance and erotic romance stories for our new Summer Lovin’ series. These stories must be about men who find love and lust all summer long, whether it’s at the beach or at the pool, at a cookout or at the park, on vacation or working at an amusement park, wherever two guys connect in the heat of the summer. From sweet harmless flirting to fulfilling hot sex, show us just how hot the summer can get!

Like our popular Men at Work series, the ebooks will all share a similar cover and be released during the summer months of 2016, starting in June. They will NOT be released as an anthology, and there is no upfront payment; authors will be paid quarterly on actual sales earned. If you haven’t published with us before, feel free to request a sample contract prior to submission.

A Cat Named Hercules by KC Kendricks

Re-released! 


A Cat Named Hercules
Book V in the Men of Marionville series
Available now at All Romance eBooks



New in town, Shiloh Rudy joins a group of civic-minded volunteers to better acquaint himself with his recently adopted community. It’s a good way to make friends, network, and help make a difference, not to mention perhaps meet someone interesting  - in a romantic sort of way. The one thing Shiloh didn’t expect was a love to rival all others to come with four white paws.

Gale Widmyer is on his feet and moving forward after piecing his life back together following a series of wrong choices. In his darkest moments, the one bright spot in his existence was the fulfillment of his dream to become a veterinarian. Gale’s making good on a promise to himself when an abandoned kitten leads him to Shiloh Rudy and a chance at the happiness he never hoped to have.

Laying the cornerstone for a developing relationship comes easy for Shiloh and Gale. But the wounds of the past often remain unhealed at their deepest point. A few careless words erects a wall of silence between the two men, one Shiloh has to breach if he hopes to win Gale back. It will take more than apologies to win Gale’s forgiveness and put old fears to rest. It’ll take a cat named Hercules.

EXCERPT

“Why haven’t you visited Frolic before today?”

Galen took another sip of his wine, then licked his lips. “It’s pretty complicated. I’m not sure I’m ready to talk about it.”

“I’m a good listener, if that helps.”

He ran his index finger around the rim of his glass. He looked at me, his eyes full of questions. “Shiloh, when did you come out?”

“At my senior prom. I was keeping company with the only other gay boy in my class. We went stag, but halfway through the evening, we decided what the heck? So we slow danced.”

“Wow. I’d have died a thousand deaths.” He twirled the ruby liquid in his glass.

I knew without him saying where his head was. What gay man wouldn’t know and understand? He’d reached the moment we all have to deal with in one way or another.
“Gale, are you about to come out?”

He nodded, his gaze fixed on the tabletop. I reached over and wrapped my fingers around his wrist. “I know it feels like a heavy burden right now, but once you do it, you’ll feel better.”

His eyes closed. Crap. I’d said the wrong thing. Galen took a deep breath and looked at me.

“I should be going.”

I didn’t have any choice but to let him go, but I wasn’t giving up. “May I walk you to your car?”

He drew back a bit, as if the question put him a little off balance. My heart beat faster. If he worried I might kiss him, he had good reason. It was my plan.

“I think I can find the way. Thanks for the wine.” He rose in a fluid motion, nodded, and turned to go.

I gulped the last bit of liquid in my glass and followed him all the way to his Jeep. With his head lowered, I couldn’t tell if he realized I was behind him or not. When we got to his vehicle, he must have seen my reflection in the darkened window glass. He turned, his eyes black and wild with a mix of fear and longing. I closed the distance between us. Galen’s arms snaked their way around my neck. We stumbled hard against the side of his ride. His hold tightened, and I seized the opportunity and covered his mouth with mine.

I felt the shock go through him, but I didn’t back off. I couldn’t. His lips slid over mine as he opened to me, a low moan rolling out of him and into me. He was alive under my hands as I caressed down his backside. His scent was in every rapid breath I managed to take. My cock filled in a few pounding beats. I gripped his hips and flexed my pelvis to his, eager to learn if he was equally hard. Galen sucked in a breath and tore his mouth from mine.

“Shiloh. Shiloh, I have to leave.”

Hot frustration burned inside me, but quickly cooled. He wasn’t playing with me. The man shook violently in my arms. An uneasy realization dawned. I cradled the back of his head and pulled him closer.

“Shh. Lean on me, Gale. Just let me hold you for a second. It’s okay.” I rubbed his back. “Talk to me.”

He eased away from me. “I have to go. I thought I was ready for this, but I’m not.”

“If you want me, know this. I definitely want you.” I reached for him, but he planted his hand in the middle of my chest and kept me at arm’s length.

“What I want doesn’t matter. I swore I wouldn’t…”

Call for Submissions -- Hurt Heroes (M/M Erotic Romance Stories)

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Hurt Heroes (Gay Erotic Romance Stories)

Deadline: April 30, 2016
Payment: 50% net royalties from all channels, to be paid quarterly
Contract: 2 years exclusive, auto-renews

Whether he’s fighting for his country, arresting criminals, putting out fires, or transporting the sick to the hospital, there’s nothing sexier than a man in uniform. But what happens when one of these heroes is hurt in the line of duty? Who does he turn to for solace? Who comforts him?

Maybe he’s a soldier returning home after a prolonged deployment overseas and falls for the therapist assigned to help him deal with his PTSD. Or he’s a cop who works the streets of New York with his best buddy, and it takes a bullet’s near miss to put their relationship into perspective. Or he’s a fireman who rushes into a burning building without thinking of himself only to save the man of his dreams.

We are looking for sweet and sexy romance and erotic romance stories for our new Hurt Heroes series. These tales must be about heroic men who put their lives on the line every day -- soldiers, policemen, firemen, rescue workers, EMTs -- who find love when they’re wounded while protecting others. From harmless, sweet flirting to fulfilling hot sex, these stories must bring together two men who meet when one is hurt or injured and end happily. These stories will not be released as an anthology, but rather as individual e-books. Each will have a unique cover with a similar theme that will tie them together. Our goal is to begin releasing them as soon as quality submissions begin coming in. There is no upfront payment; authors will be paid quarterly on actual sales earned. If you haven’t published with us before, feel free to request a sample contract prior to submission.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:

Zolabarth Bi Yaoi Male/Male Audio Book


.★.`•.¸.•´.★.`•.¸.•´ HUGE YAOI NEWS! `•.¸.•´.★.`•.¸.•´.★.
The BIGGEST PRODUCTION OF A YAOI AUDIO BOOK EVER has just happened!  Anime voice actors helped create this FULL-CAST audio with a MUSICAL SCORE and SOUND EFFECTS!

This is a MASSIVE PRODUCTION of Zolabarth Bi, Yamila Abraham's  most highly rated manga/novel hybrid.
 
It's a Yaoi Radio Drama brought to the USA and YOU DON'T EVEN NEED TO BE PART OF A KICKSTARTER TO GET IT!!!  Zolabarth Bi is the exciting and spicy sci-fi adventure romance between evil arms merchant Maximus (played by Kiba Walker) and the gruff shape-shifter Zolabarth (played by Julie Rei Goldstein).

Zolabarth Bi
Maximus controls Zolabarth, a shape-shifting alien powerful enough to destroy all his enemies, and capable of assuming a beguiling form that satisfies all his other needs.

Megalomaniac Maximus always achieves his goals. Right now, his goal is to destroy a massive army that tried to draft him using a mind control device. The only way Maximus can accomplish this is with a Rig-mertian: an alien that can transform into an invincible monster. Zolabarth is the Rig-mertian lent out to Maximus. Since Zolabarth is so destructive, his master cursed him with a weaker form. Every time Zolabarth takes his monster form, he has to become a female afterward.
Maximus is too elitist to relate to the crass Rig-mertian at first, but after some strange intimate moments, he finds himself drawn to him. When he's suddenly presented with Zolabarth as a female, there's no question in his mind how things will proceed.

Zolabarth killed his last master for putting the moves on him. Will this be the first time Maximus doesn't get what he wants?
