We’re continuing the countdown to GayRomLit 2016 in Kansas City today with Featured Author Jenn Dease. Enjoy Jenn’s guest post and then be sure to check out the giveaway details below!
Hey there! This is Jenn Dease, MLR Press Author, writing the blog that ‘Almost Wasn’t’. What do I mean by that? That due to this past weekend, I ‘Almost’ forgot to write this blog.
My sister was married this weekend. A good wedding. A fine couple. Both widowed, yet they found each other. It was beautiful. I wish them all the happiness they can have.
I took an extra day off work to #1, be available to run if needed, #2, write this blog and my own blog.
And I ran. To the grocery store. To the craft store. To pick up our dresses. To grab something to eat. To. To. To. But, I was happy to do it. My Sister Was Getting Married!!
The blog? Well, I had the first paragraph written before the first phone call. An intro and a thank you to The Novel Approach. And I do thank them so much for being so understanding.
What else was I going to blog about? I am going to GRL in Kansas City! This will be my first GRL, but hopefully not the last. I am looking forward to meeting all of you and the other authors I love to read. From everything I hear, this will be a Great Retreat!
And, I have a new book coming from MLR Press on September 30. Storming Love: Tsunami Max & Rob. This is a contemporary set in New Zealand. And it takes place on a boat out in the ocean during a tsunami.
A day that started out beautiful.
A day that turned to disaster.
A day Max & Rob hoped would lead to finding their family had survived.
A day the two men became closer & revealed their love.
One day. A day that changed everything.
Hope you like it. It was an interesting one to write. My previous contemporary was Storming Love: Flood Bridge & Doug.
Other news: MLR Press took my three Dragon Marines books, Captain’s Mate, Lonnie’s New Christmas and Dragon’s Surprise and are PRINTING them in a single volume!!! Dragon Marines, Vol. 1.
Yes, there will be more Dragon Marines books. I am currently working on one that has an Ice Dragon as one of the main characters. Ice Dragons are very rare and live in Antarctica.
To celebrate all of this, I am giving away a $10 MLR Press gift voucher and a free download of Storming Love: Tsunami Max & Rob, when it is released. Leave a comment at the end of this blog and on the 27th of September a winner will be picked.
Many thanks to Lisa, who contacted me, and the great people at The Novel Approach. It is one of my favorite review blogs and I am a subscriber.
