SYNOPSIS

Enthusiastic, play-it-safe Kelly Sutton is an American intern at the Photonic Royal Society in New London. He’s been working on Project Mars for over a year, a mission kept so secret by the Society even Kelly doesn’t know exactly what it is. What Kelly does know is his contribution to the task will benefit mankind, and that’s enough for him.

Kelly’s world turns upside down when concerns over his mentor’s behavior lead Kelly to investigate and stumble upon a wicked truth. What is supposed to be a project to advance human life turns out to be an endeavor capable of mass destruction. The terrifying reality forces Kelly to choose between looking the other way to keep his job, as he’s always done, or risking his career and even his life to do the right thing by saving the man who’s captured his heart.

Calvin Summers and Ethan Hobbs have been best friends since childhood, but somewhere along the line, their friendship evolved into something more. With the Therian Youth Center bombing, Calvin realizes just how short life can be and no longer keeps his feelings for his best friend a secret. Unfortunately, change is difficult for Ethan; most days he does well to deal with his selective mutism and social anxiety. Calvin's confession adds a new struggle for Ethan, one he fears might cost him the friendship that's been his whole world for as long as he can remember.

As partners and Defense Agents at the THIRDS, being on Destructive Delta is tough at the best of times, but between call-outs and life-threatening situations, Calvin and Ethan not only face traversing the challenges of their job, but also working toward a future as more than friends.

Gearing up for GRL, Swag, and More!

Hello all! I am just flabbergasted by how quickly the time has gone. Two weeks from today until GRL officially kicks off. Where did the time ago? So much to do, to prepare. I'm still boxing up swag. Then there's packing, deciding what shoes to leave behind. I'm so looking forward to seeing everyone and meeting new folks.

For those attending, this year the fabulous Guidebook app is back. You'll be able to find my name under the list of Registered Authors in the GRL 2015 Guide and it will list all my sessions and events in case you'd like to add them to your schedule.   These are my events along with a few others I plan to attend. There a few more, but I likely won't know where else I'll be until closer to the event.

  • Wednesday Oct 14th: 7.00 pm to 10 pm - Pre-Retreat Meet & Greet (Mission Ballroom A & B)
  • Thursday Oct 15th: 3.50 pm to 4.45 pm – Featured Author Spotlight (Author Q&A) Charlie Cochet, Rhys Ford, and Lisa Henry (Mission Ballroom A).
  • Thursday Oct 15th: 6.30 pm to 8.30 pm – Dine-With-An-Author Opening Night Event (Bahia Beach & Patio). For those who are interested in sitting at the table I've been assigned, there should be a number on every registered authors' name badge to let folks know which table we'll be seated at.
  • Friday Oct 16th: 12.35 pm to 1.20 pm – Author Lounge (A Session) (Mission Ballroom D & E).
  • Friday Oct 16th: 4.00 pm to 5.30 pm – GRL Fun & Craft Fair Session One: Filthy Stinking Liars! Mission Ballroom A & B
  • Saturday Oct 17th: 12.30 pm to 3 pm – Featured Author Booksigning Event (Del Mar Room).
  • Saturday Oct 17th: 9 pm to 1 am - Hooray for Hollywood Costume Party (Mission Ballroom ABC)

Now onto the swag!

I'll have lots of nifty THIRDS swag, different items in different places. 

Here's some of the swag I'll be giving away:

GRL2015SWAG

So what swag is going to be where?

The SWAG room:

  • Destructive Delta tote bags.
  • Scented gummy bear highlighters.
  • THIRDS Dex & Sloane jaguar bookmarks (not pictured above).
  • Roaring lion head temporary tattoos (Thank you, Venona!)
  • And these rack cards with the whole team!

20151001_142723

Author Lounge & Booksigning Event:

  • Both sets of character collector cards (pictured in first image. Quantities are limited).
  • Charm bracelets (there are actually more than the ones pictures above). We have one for each of the guys: Dex, Sloane, Ash, Cael, Calvin, Ethan, Seb, and Hudson. These are very limited. Roughly 50 of each so we'll have to keep it to one per reader. I know it'll be tough to choose.
  • THIRDS Dex & Sloane jaguar bookmarks (they look like the banner below).
  • THIRDS Nerds GRL 2015 San Diego buttons.

Also, providing he gets to GRL in one piece, there's going to be a Dex pop up banner!! I'm super excited with how it turned out. It was created with readers in mind and done so that--depending on your height--you can take a picture with Dex. If you're just the right height, you can stand in front of his hand and he'll give you bunny ears. I couldn't resist. Here's what the banner looks like (it's not as dark in print form, so you should be able to see Sloane nicely):

THIRDS Stand Up Banner Thumbnail

I'm not sure where he'll be yet. If the banner and all its pieces make it okay to San Diego, I'll be finding a spot for him after I arrive.

Aaand if that wasn't nerdy enough, you'll find these guys at the Author Lounge and my signing table. Don't judge me. LOL

Can't wait to see you there! <3

SummaryCharmed Divider

Magic takes many forms. From malignant hexes to love charms gone amok, you’ll find a vast array of spells and curses, creatures and conjurings in this massive collection—not to mention a steamy dose of man-on-man action. Charmed and Dangerous features all-new stories of gay paranormal romance, supernatural fiction and urban fantasy by ten top m/m paranormal authors.

Rhys Ford - Dim Sum Asylum For Detective Roku MacCormick, working Arcane Crimes is his passion. Now cleared of any wrongdoing for shooting his last partner, MacCormick is given back his badge… as well as a new case and partner. Trent Leonard isn’t exactly what he’d expected, but then nothing in San Francisco’s Chinatown ever is.

Ginn Hale - Swift and the Black Dog When Jack Swift killed a tyrant and won the revolution he became a national hero. But someone in the new government prefers dead heroes to living, swearing, cynical wizards. Caught between bullets, revenge and desire, Jack had better be swift indeed.

KJ Charles - A Queer Trade Apprentice magician Crispin Tredarloe returns to London to find his master dead, and his papers sold. Papers with secrets that could spell death. Waste paper seller Ned Hall can’t resist Crispin’s pleading—and appealing—looks. But can the wasteman and the magician prevent a disaster and save Crispin’s skin?

Nicole Kimberling - Magically Delicious Occult attacks against NIAD agents aren’t remotely Keith Curry’s department. But when his lover, Gunther, is assaulted, Keith refuses to just sit back and fill out paperwork. He’s on the case—even if that means enraging powerful mages, crossing leprechaun picket lines, or braving dinner with Gunther’s goblin parents.

Jordan Castillo Price - Everyone's Afraid of Clowns Psychic medium Victor Bayne can spot a ghost any day of the year, but Halloween holds some special surprises. His psych-groupie boyfriend Jacob coaxes him to the location of an old spirit sighting, but they can’t ghosthunt without enduring a cheesy “haunted house” that’s even more disturbing than they realize.

Jordan L. Hawk - The Thirteenth Hex Hexman Dominic Kopecky doesn’t understand why dashing crow familiar Rook wants his help investigating murder by patent hex. For one thing, Dominic isn’t a witch. For another, the case is already closed—and someone is willing to kill to keep it that way.

Charlie Cochet - The Soldati Prince Riley Murrough goes from serving lattes to being chased by demons. If that wasn’t bad enough, he bears the mark of a shapeshifter king from a magical realm. Riley’s determined to get answers, but if the demons out for his blood don’t kill him, the urge to strangle the arrogant king might.

Lou Harper - One Hex Too Many Veteran detective Mike Mulligan is an expert on violent crimes—of the occult variety. He might even be cursed. Detective Hugh Fox is eager to partner up and prove himself, but Mulligan is accustomed to flying solo. Can they trust each other enough to track a killer who’ll stop at nothing, not even summoning a demon?

Andrea Speed - Josh of the Damned vs. the Bathroom of Doom It's a boring night at the Quik-Mart for Josh and his friend Doug. Until a vampire with a grudge—and the most adorable backup ever—crashes the store. Can Josh survive the Bathroom of Doom?

Astrid Amara - The Trouble With Hexes P.I. Tim Keller has a problem. And the only person who can solve it is his ex-boyfriend, Vincent, whose job as a hexbreaker was the reason they broke up. It’s hard admitting he was wrong, especially when coughing up organs. But there’s a missing person to find, a hexmaker to hunt down, and a romance to repair before Tim breathes his last.

Lou's favorite animal is the hedgehog. She likes nature, books, movies, photography, and good food. She has a temper and mood swings. Lou has misspent most of her life in parts of Europe and the US, but is now firmly settled in Los Angeles and worships the sun. However, she thinks the ocean smells funny. Lou is a loner, a misfit, and a happy drunk. www.louharper.com
