Release Tour: Anguish by JJ Ellis

Title: Anguish
Author: JJ Ellis
Series: Harper's Rock Legacy #1
Genre: Mature Young Adult, M/M Romance
Release Date: February 21, 2018
Summary:
One young man

One desperate decision

Being a teenager is hard enough, but when you have a diagnosis of depression and anxiety life can feel like it is caving in on you. When you add in a new awareness of your sexuality and falling in love for the first time, life can become almost too much to bear.

Ben Harper is determined to make it all work with the help of his best friend and new love, JC Croft. But when his inner demons conspire against him, can he come out on top or will he be crushed by the pressure?

๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ซContent Warning: There are mature themes - sex talk, fade to black sex, foul language and violence. (Suicide)๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ซ


“So, Benjamin Harper has anyone told you that you have a mighty fine ass?”

Ben snorted a laugh and kept on moving with his boyfriend’s laughter trailing behind. He paused when he reached the top of the hill and waited for JC. “Hold my hand as we go into the clearing.” They both stepped up and through the trees. An outdoor table and chairs sat before them. “Now look to your right.”

JC turned slowly in the direction Ben advised and his breath caught. The lake lay sprawled out before them with no barriers of trees or buildings, just shining water and the opposite shore covered in pine trees capped with snow. “Now I understand why you like it up here. This place is amazing.”

“I know,” Ben murmured. “In the summer I bring a book or my sketchpad up here, and somehow find the strength to deal with whatever problem I’m having. And in the winter, I bundle up and come up here to experience the extra quiet of the snow covered earth. And if I’m sad, I cry and let the tears freeze on my cheek. It reminds me that I’m alive.”

JC stood silent for a moment trying to absorb everything his boyfriend said. And then it clicked. “Wait, you…you don’t feel alive sometimes?”

“No, I don’t. I feel…I don’t know, emotionless I guess. Without purpose. I have never been able to see a future for myself. Oh, I can list what I want to happen in the future but I can’t see it or grasp it.”

“You never told anybody,” JC realized suddenly. “Why?”

Author Bio:
JJ Ellis is first and foremost a mom to five kids, four girls and one boy, ranging in age from 6-22. After that, she is a physically limited wife, blogger and now an author. She holds a degree in Communication Studies (Public Relations) from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas but never thought she would choose writing as a career, especially at the age of 42. She once wanted to be a publicist in the entertainment industry, but never a writer. Then one day when she was in her mid-thirties she was going through what can only be described as an early 'midlife crisis' and ideas just started to come to her and she felt compelled to write them down. She finished her first book relatively quickly, but life got in the way and it took her eight years to revisit it and then publish her first novel. She can honestly say that now she is finally right where she wants to be.

JJ has been married to her college sweetheart (and romance novel hero) for twenty-one years and they reside in Casper, WY with their kids and one crazy mutt named Kreuger. She enjoys reading, writing, blogging, computing, and graphic design. She will try anything that will allow her creativity to be released.

Release Tour: Working the Count by Jeanine Binder

Title: Working the Count
Author: Jeanine Binder
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 13, 2018
Summary:
Working the count (definition) - When a batter is patient in his at-bats and tries to get "ahead in the count" or to get a pitch that he can hit hard.

Montero Salazaar was a master of this in his private life. He was always looking for the home run and never the strike out; contrary to how he wanted things to go when he was in a game. Being a major league pitcher only helped to enhance the number of girls wanting him in their bed and he knew how to lay down the smooth line at the exact right time. His life was an open book – at thirty-two years old, he had all the time in the world to play and have fun, making his presence known on every tabloid imaginable. Each day brought the promise of a new encounter, leaving him sated and satisfied without having to look in the rearview mirror.

But then came Casey and his aunt, Annie. Being with her, he felt like he had been doused with a vat of ice water and now wide awake - looking at life (and love) so differently. Montero wasn’t used to women who weren’t throwing themselves at him and how could Annie be changing him so dramatically? And why was he suddenly more interested in spending an afternoon coaching an eight-year-old with baseball tips than finding someone to spend a sexy night with?

Was this his one chance for love rather than being destined for one-nighters? Can he really change and make himself a solid person for Annie to love? Or were his teammates right and this would all blow over like a late-night storm with no true love in sight?


“What’s up?” Montero asked cautiously, setting his phone back down on the locker floor, looking the guys over to make sure they didn’t have anything to spray him with, or dump on him. Practical jokes were a way of life in the locker room and you had to always keep your guard up. All four of these guys were ganging up on him – all bets were off. He knew they had an agenda of some kind.

“Salley,” Mike Robbins, the first baseman started. “Salley” was the nickname his team all called him as a joke, which didn’t bother him. Some of his teammates had worse nicknames and he knew they’d thought they were being cute by giving him a girl’s name. “You’re up to something and we want to know what. You know you can’t keep secrets from us.”

“I have no idea what you guys are talking about,” he retorted, but couldn’t hold back the smile on his face. He knew he should keep a poker face, but something inside wanted to tell his team the truth. He was feeling good about his relationship and he felt he could talk about it openly. Now might be the opening he’d been waiting for.

Mike pointed his finger at him in an accusing manner. “That’s what I’m talking about. Look at that shit-eating grin on your face. Give it up, Sal. What have you done?”

Montero wavered, going over the pros and cons in his mind, whether to tell them about Annie. He was still surprised at the whole relationship himself and he knew he was in for an onslaught of teasing from his teammates once he came clean with them. But he didn’t have a clever way to dodge the situation and figured they’d all have to know sometime. He took a deep breath and blew it out, facing his teammates and swallowed once before starting. “Well, I sort of have… a girlfriend.”

There was silence for a moment then the four guys around him just burst into laughter. The kind that makes your eyes water and your stomach hurt. Montero watched patiently as they all dropped either onto the bench beside him or onto the floor – the hoots of their amusement making him wish he’d just kept his mouth shut. It was inevitable they would find out and he’d figured he’d take the easy way out by telling them, but from the sound of things, that was even going to go south on him. He wasn’t finding their laughter very amusing, trying to be tolerant until they were finished. He knew this was coming but still…

“Not sure what’s so funny,” Montero interrupted.

“That has to be the best thing I have heard all week,” David answered. David Ruston was a reliever – usually brought in at the seventh inning to carry on for the starting pitcher, and had followed Montero on the field more times than he could count. “Montero Salazaar with only one woman – Salley, I can’t get my head around that thought. And I know this has just got to be some whim you’re on. A dare someone made? Or a bet...that’s it. Someone is paying you to do this…”

“No one’s paying me to do anything and it’s not any kind of bet,” Montero said, fixing David with a stare. “This is a whole new world for me. I haven’t been to a club or out with another woman in almost three months. Tell me that isn’t serious, thank you very much.”

Mike nudged David in the ribs. “She must be a hot tamale in bed then.”

The guys all went back off in another fit of laughter. Montero stood up, finishing getting dressed. He was too tired and cranky to continue feeding their amusement. He’d earned every bit of their disbelief and harassment, but he didn’t need to have it all tonight and he wasn’t interested in taking anymore. “Laugh it up guys,” he said, finally. “If you want to see for yourself, get off your asses and come down to Riverside Ball Park at four tomorrow. You can meet her and then you’ll see I’m legit.”

Just as he got to the locker room door, he heard Mike’s voice behind him. “It won’t last, Salley. You don’t have the moxy to commit to just one woman. I give it another couple of weeks at most – things will be back to normal. I’ll even put a C-Note on it.”


I’ll be at the Booking in Biloxi event
March 24th at the IP Casino, Biloxi, Mississippi.

I'll have signed copies on the table for $7 and
you get to meet DeLonn Donovan (the model on the cover).

Title: Hearts and Beaus
Authors: Amy Stearman, EJ Whitmer, Elise Barker
Erin Grosfield, Megan Nelson, Mica Rossi
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 14, 2018
Summary:
No two love stories are the same. In Hearts and Beaus, enjoy not one, not two, but six unique tales of finding, choosing, and appreciating love. With stories about love that heals, overcomes, endures, and surprises, this collection of contemporary romances from authors spanning several genres is a treasure trove for the hopeless romantic.


Healing Hearts by Amy Stearman
Following a terrible accident that left her widowed and with a mute son, Kate struggles to regain her sense of normalcy. Balancing the diner she runs in her small home town against the weight of her son’s needs, the last thing Kate needs is another complication. 

Ben finds himself in the small town of Barton, Missouri running on fumes and his last few dollars. He has no choice but to find a way to make some money or face going back home, a prospect he’d rather avoid.

When something as simple as a misbehaving vehicle brings the two together, their spark is undeniable. However, neither of them could have prepared themselves for just how connected they truly are.

What's Luck Got To Do With It by E.J. Whitmer
If there’s the possibility of something going wrong, Riley Bremmel is sure to draw the short straw. Half of her life has been spent in a cast or Ace bandage. She’s dated losers and liars and never seems to land on her feet. Until she meets Graham, a handsome stranger who stumbles upon her changing a flat tire on a cold night. Maybe, just maybe, her luck is turning. 

Graham Moore is the luckiest man in the Midwest. And, lucky him, he happens to be in the right place at the right time to rescue a damsel in distress. However, as time passes, his luck falters. The closer he gets to Riley, the more things turn against him. After learning of the Moore Family Curse, is it worth losing his luck to win his love?

The Extraordinary Ordinary by Elise Barker
Eva has it all: a good relationship with her husband Charlie, two goofy kids, a solid career, and a comfortable house. But a series of misunderstandings threaten to disrupt her happy normality. Shaken out of their routine and escaping to the woods in an ever-escalating comedy of errors, Eva and Charlie must work together in mutual trust to protect their family from forces outside their control. In the isolation of a rustic cabin, facing increasingly real dangers, Eva and Charlie rediscover the passion that had been missing from their snug yet mundane existence, and learn to appreciate The Extraordinary Ordinary.

105 Reasons by Erin Grosfield
Zoe is living her best life. After inheriting her grandparents’ farmhouse in her tiny hometown, she builds a thriving wedding venue in the old barn. Every day greets her with tranquility and laughs with her faithful, larger-than-life Great Dane. She has everything she needs.
Wyatt loves his penthouse life in the city, his world travels and his money. But with all his success, he has to admit he finds himself lonely and unfulfilled. 

When a chance encounter brings their worlds together, will they be able to choose between the lives they know and their unexpected, inescapable longing to be together?

Something Beige by Megan Nelson
Paige is used to going unnoticed. When you’re a little plain and a lot introverted it comes with the territory. Trying to stay optimistic and true to herself, Paige looks for someone who values the natural over the fake, who understands there’s more to a person than meets the eye. 
Losing yet another guy to a superficial beauty is the last straw. If all men prefer flash to substance, then she’s done with them. Fostering unwanted cats helps her feel needed and appreciated even if it doesn’t fill every corner of her heart. With all her focus on animal rescue, Paige is unaware that love is closer than she thinks.

If Only by Mica Rossi
Grant Richardson wasn’t looking for love, and certainly not in the silly castle on an island that shouldn’t exist. He was, after all, a lawyer. He didn’t believe in fairytales or pixie dust. Maggie Chalvis had dreamed of love but never expected it. She lived alone, with only her father and his secretary for company, confined to the castle created once upon a time for her enchanting mother. 



Two solitary souls traveling in singular orbits. One grand master orchestrating their meeting. And just a little bit of Valentine magic.


Amy Stearman
Amy Stearman is an avid reader and writer of stories, hailing from the Midwest. She lives in the liberal mecca of Kansas with her husband, young son, and ornery Sheltie.

Amy holds her bachelors degrees in Human Services and Victim Studies, and a Masters degree in Social Work. That might sound pretty cool, but she accidentally ended up in marketing.

When she's not chasing her six year old or attempting DIY home improvement, she's jotting down story ideas and dreaming big.

EJ Whitmer
E.J. Whitmer is a young-ish Iowa native who spends her days working in marketing and design. When she is not working or writing, she likes to spend her free time cooking, crafting, attending sporting events, harassing her outrageously good-looking husband or cuddling her new son.

Elise Barker
Elise Barker received her PhD in English and the Teaching of English in 2014 from Idaho State University where she continues to work as a part time adjunct instructor. Today she is working on the curriculum for an intensive hands-on Harry Potter class for kids ages 11-17. Elise has written in a variety of genres, both academic and creative, but her heart currently lies with studying the art of memoir.

Elise and her husband Chris Elston have two kids and her favorite thing to do is play with them outside, whether it’s hiking, biking, snowshoeing, swimming, canoeing, or going to natural hot springs. If she gets to the end of the day and hasn’t done something Instagram-worthy, she rouses herself up and creates a memory.

Erin Grosfield
Erin Grosfield is an author and perpetual dreamer currently holding down the fort in the Midwest with her musically inclined husband and two young children--one of which is well-behaved. She took her degree in journalism and became a creative entrepreneur, running her own magazine and later producing an original Emmy-nominated home renovation Web series. These days she's dreaming in novel form and seeing her characters in the grocery store, which she took as a sign to put ideas down on paper and become an author--because, perpetual dreamer.

Megan Nelson
It’s no exaggeration to say that Megan Nelson is always writing. By day, she puts her two English degrees to work as a technical writer, delivering logical and easy-to-read training materials on demand. At night, she puts logic to bed and lets her creative side out to play. She is especially fond of love stories, ghost stories, science fiction, or any combination thereof.

Megan lives in Kansas with her husband and two young sons. Completing the household is an exceedingly fluffy cat and a surprisingly hardy Betta fish.

Mica Rossi
Mica Rossi has been writing since she was in the second grade and barely able to form her letters properly. Her first book, Once in a Blue Moon, is a paranormal romance and was selected as a spearhead novel for Melange Books’ White Satin Romance line. Her second published work, Heart Songs, is a collection of short stories and poetry about the human heart and all its boundless emotions. Other works have been featured in several anthologies, and she’s furiously scribbling through various drafts of her second full-length novel, a contemporary romance set during the Christmas season.

Now working as a paralegal to pay the bills, Mica hopes to someday make writing her full-time career. Of her own stories, she says, “I love the juxtaposition of an urban setting against elements of magick or faerie, demons, ghosts or mythical creatures. There’s something that draws me to those pockets of our universe where the laws of physics can be ignored, or at least trifled with. If Only… is one of those stories.”
