The Raven Queen by K. Kibbee Tour

Forests of the Fae: The Raven Queen
By K. Kibbee
Genre: YA Fantasy

A summer spent untangling a century-old mass disappearance, communing with ghosts, fleeing dark Fae Folk, and enduring her nefarious cousin Lexie would seem like tribulation enough for 13-year-old Anne, and yet her struggles have only just begun.

Though she’s closed Devlin’s Door behind her, something sinister has followed Anne from the other side. Her dearest friend Grace is not as she would seem. Something dark has taken hold of the girl . . . something not of this world. Ravens surround her, people mindlessly do her bidding, and wickedness drips from her lips. It’s only a matter of time before Anne uncovers her secret and with it, her vengeance.

Meanwhile, somewhere deep in the Forests of the Fae, the real Grace struggles to retain her humanity and escape the revolting Faerie body that imprisons her. With pet raven Onyx at her side, she is heralded a Queen, and worshiped by the very creatures that she despises.  Set atop a throne of thorns, she feels all is lost, until a stranger with human eyes and a sorted past is shackled at her feet.

Though worlds apart, both girls must race against time if they hope to unravel the mysteries of the Fae folk and unmask The Raven Queen.

There’s more going on in November than just the movie, however—Walter’s been working up the nerve to ask Kelly a certain question. When Walter set up his elaborate Thanksgiving marriage proposal, it seemed like such a good idea, but as the holiday, the movie premiere, and the question Walter never dreamt he’d be asking anyone converge…let’s just say even Hollywood’s best couldn’t sing and dance their way out of Walter’s tangle.

INFORMATION ABOUT THE SERIES
The Love Lessons series are new adult LGBT contemporary romance novels set at various colleges within the American Midwest. While Love Lessons and Fever Pitch feature gay protagonists, subsequent novels will include lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and heterosexual heroes and heroines.
The heat level for these stories is significantly sweeter than some of Heidi’s erotic romances, which has a tendency to make the sexual tension ratchet off the charts.
Book four in the series, tentatively titled One of the Girls, will feature Rose and Mina. Book five will feature Lejla, who you meet in Lonely Hearts. Whether or not the series goes beyond these novels is yet to be determined.


Heidi Cullinan has always enjoyed a good love story, provided it has a happy ending. Proud to be from the first Midwestern state with full marriage equality, Heidi is a vocal advocate for LGBT rights. She writes positive-outcome romances for LGBT characters struggling against insurmountable odds because she believes there’s no such thing as too much happy ever after. When Heidi isn’t writing, she enjoys cooking, reading, playing with her cats, and watching television with her family. Find out more about Heidi at heidicullinan.com.

Synopsis

The old adage learn by doing sure applies to Williamson “Will” Franco, a dominant prodigy at age 18. If it weren’t for an impromptu threeway encounter—with a sideshow of anilingus—this truly intercultural young man never would have dreamed of spanking, bondage, and role play. So he becomes an employee of a sex club.

When Will shows up, club revenues jump. Consensual kinky sex is not a required part of the job, but is optional. The club, however, ends up being much more than a sexual awakening. His coworkers embrace him as kin, while the proprietress and her submissive husband end up being Will’s benefactors, bankrolling his education and guiding him on a good path, despite a dire home life in the hood.

The experience matures him, equips him to cope with inevitable family problems and tragedy, and shows him how to live.


Excerpt

Once they arrived at Kendra’s sleek apartment, she got right to the point and explained the plan: although she and Yuri engaged in unprotected sex—they scheduled regular clinic visits to test for STIs—Will would need to use a condom.

Kendra had a special chair Yuri bought for her with Righteous Ding Dong proceeds. The chair let Kendra sit comfortably, but exposed and parted her ass crack and pussy for Yuri to service below.

“I’m not always a top,” she explained.

Will, though green with this lingo, understood.

“I’m very balanced. I like being top and bottom, often topping from the bottom—like now.”

Kendra espoused her philosophical ideal of sex while she settled herself on the chair. She wore stockings, a garter belt, and stilettos, as well as a half-cup bra to complete the look. She beckoned Will toward her, her face level with his fly, which she deftly undid. When he looked down at this brunette vixen, he detected some Asian ancestry.

Yuri was already set up under the chair, sighing at the sight of her slit. “While Yuri eats my ass, I’ll service your cock— with a rubber to be safe,” Kendra told Will. “Is that agreed?”

“Uh-huh,” agreed Yuri with a muffle, his mouth already planted in her heavenly cave as he stroked his full-to-bursting cock.

When Will’s hefty erection was wrangled out, Kendra was pleasantly enthused.

She smiled lustily and fondled it before opening a Magnum-brand condom to fit over his stiff meat.

“Gobble, gobble,” she said.

Will enjoyed that, as well as the power his prick had over her demeanor.

Playlist

M. Christine cannot listen to music while writing. But when I’m not writing, tunes, songs, melodies, tracks, even dirges lift my soul and inform my stories. During my creative modes, every perception, especially music, makes the next idea more fertile. For example, feeling a delicious breeze standing on the sidewalk where I see weird hobo signs scrawled in chalk in front of a ramshackle house out of which blares a beautiful honky-tonk soundtrack. As stated, I cannot put on music while type, type, typing. While reading, it’s a different sensory process where the background music elevates a book experience. I remember as a kid reading Tolkien’s The Two Towers while someone in the background repeatedly played the Aja album by Steely Dan. (By the way, everyone should know that the band Steely Dan is named after a dildo mentioned in William S. Burroughs’ Naked Lunch.) The experience and the thrills of The Two Towers plot are forever etched in me thanks to the song magic of “Peg” and “Josie.”

Some of the tracks on this suggested playlist are directly referenced in Will to Live; others capture the essence of a scene or chapter. A lot of them are infectious & sexy—enjoy!

Pete Rock “Smooth Sailing” For when Kendra encounters Will’s commanding presence.
Atmosphere “Good Times (Sick Pimpin’)” Alludes to the situation of Ginger, Will’s mom.
Giorgio Moroder “Midnight Express”
Rollins Band’s “Liar”
Crustina Aguilera “You’re Fucked” Will in the shitkicker truck with Madison…
Girlpool Paint Me Colors To accompany crazy Sammie.
The B-52s “Dance This Mess Around” Another for Sammie.
Eric Idle “The Penis Song” Comedy relief of porn producer Biff.
Cypress Hill “Insane in the Brain” Ode to Psychoclops.
Dr. Octagon “Earth People” Horrorcore for Psychoclops.
Howard Keel “Bless Your Beautiful Hide” from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Friends who are bears at Kodiak Club.
The Hollies “Bus Stop”
Junior Byles “Curly Locks” Most beautiful spring-fever kind of lovesong.
The Pastels “Check My Heart” Dominant Will is optimistic for romance?
Zapp & Roger “Dance Floor”
Blue Magic “Sideshow”
Ella Fitzgerald “Midnight Sun”
The Sound Stylistics “Night Theme”

Heated Sweets (A Taste of Love Series #3)
Author: A.M. Willard
Cover Design: MadHat Books
Now Available

Synopsis

Do you believe someone can change your whole perspective on life? I didn’t, but I do now…
It all happens when I meet my sexy neighbor, Evan Taylor.
My name’s Francesca, better known as Frankie, and I’ve been hiding behind my camera for years. It’s what I know and love- not to mention the best way to disguise myself. It’s easy to make life look perfect from this side, even when yours is in shambles. My chronic illness is my biggest insecurity, and what I not only hide from myself, but from the world. Good thing I have a group of friends who can supply me with massive overloads of cupcakes, or life would totally stink.
Brody’s always been my crutch, but I knew deep down that he wouldn’t be the one I’d end up with. We just had to find a way to let the past go as we moved forward with our search of happiness. He’ll always be my hero, but sometimes in life you need more than a cape.
Evan Taylor is exciting, and doesn’t expect me to give him the world. He accepts me for who I am with no additional pressure. Evan’s also the one who can offer me the one thing I think I can’t give him – life. With the passion and desire that we hold for each other–it might be enough to win in the end and come out from behind the camera.

Naming Rites by Gary Boelhower Blog Tour

NR banner


Title: Naming Rites
Author: Gary Boelhower
Release Date: May 16th 2017
Genre: Poetry
naming rites cover


BLURB

Gary Boelhower’s third collection of poems explores the ways we are named and branded with multiple identities, a clay vessel molded and imprinted from the inside and the outside by those who know us or think they do, by wounds, worries, stones, and nicknames, by place and absence, by teachers and traitors. Boelhower dares to name the body’s blows and pleasures and how they are celebrated in solitude and connection. His language soars with ecstasy and burrows into hidden places in the soul. His lyrics tell how the world’s pain lodges in the cells and how the fragrance of summer stars opens an aperture to healing. Boelhower is winner of the Foley Prize from America and the Midwest Book Award for his second collection Marrow, Muscle, Flight.

Reviews

Naming Rites is such a generous collection it offers both blessings and confessions, dirt and bread, miracles and explosions, cruelty and mercy, great blue herons who resemble monks and blue jays clowning around, a lover’s tender touch and the horrors of the nightly news. In second grade, Gary Boelhower admits, he won ‘the glow-in-the-dark statue of Mary,’ and his religious drive, now mature, is still alive in these poems. They aim for (and often achieve) not just a personal record but transubstantiation, transforming experience into wisdom, fear into freedom, language into song. Naming Rites is the autobiography of a soul, reaching out beyond the boundaries of the self. Bart Sutter, author of Cow Calls in Dalarna and Chester Creek Ravine: Haiku
Gary Boelhower’s poems resist convention and confinement even as they speak deeply of and from history, family, and community. The persona names and narrates himself into being as he chronicles profound and tender encounters as well as ‘tectonic shifts and betrayals.’ Software engineers meditate, children go hungry, and faith is lost and reconfigured. ‘Let me not forget to be what I have spoken,’ Boelhower reminds himself and his readers. Naming Rites is an important and sustaining book for our times, with its ‘cadence that calls us into the streets with voices/of protest and hope.’ Julie Gard, author of Home Studies
EXCERPT

IN THE SILENCE

footsteps crunch on the cold snow
heaven’s full of falling mercy
the big arms of the pine
spread in prayer shawled in white
the whole everyday machine muffled
if everyone could say their name
in such silence we might hear
each one might send their small swirl
of hopes and prayers
spiraling out like sufi robes
in the dervish dance
and we might all
hear each other’s hands rise up
and we would know the one world’s song
all our rituals are attempts at listening
all our songs a preparation
for emptiness when our words
have all fallen away because we know
we are all whirling together
wherever you are however you do it
notice how we are all whirling together
in the great round dance
on this tiny rock with fire in its soul
through the grand galaxies
spinning with mercy and wonder
