First look at Not Another One Hit Wonder — coming next month!

October 30, 2016

Check out my next novel, Not Another One Hit Wonder, to be published November 19!

Blurb:

When best friends Jamie Eckert and Derek Duran realized they were in love, they took their relationship to the next level. But then Derek’s budding music career took off, and so did Derek.

Twenty years later, Jamie still lives in the small town of Ashbury, Virginia, where he grew up. He’s grown up and moved on — now he owns the family funeral home business and is raising Riley, his six-year-old adopted daughter.

But emotions Jamie thought long buried are stirred up again when he gets an early morning removal call. The deceased is Derek’s mother and Riley’s babysitter, Mrs. Duran. Now Derek’s back in town for the funeral, and he turns to Jamie for support … in more ways than one.

Angry at Derek for not keeping in touch, and angrier at himself for still loving the man who left him behind, Jamie is torn between his professional duty and his feelings for Derek. Will he be able to put aside his past with Derek to carry out Mrs. Duran’s final wishes? Or is Derek interested in rekindling their relationship after all this time?

Submissions Call — Coming Home (MM erotic romance stories)

October 28, 2016

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Coming Home (Gay Erotic Romance Stories)

Deadline: February 28, 2017
Payment: 50% net royalties paid quarterly
Contract: 2 years exclusive, renewable

NOTE: This isn’t an anthology; the stories will be released as individual ebooks with unique covers.

There’s nothing quite like coming home to the people who love you. We’re looking for M/M romance and erotic romance novellas and novels with a homecoming theme. No, not the school dance — we want stories in which the main character returns home after an absence and finds true love waiting for him.

Maybe he’s like a prodigal son who left under bad terms. Or perhaps he left seeking something just out of reach, only to find what he’s always wanted closer than he thought. Is he coming home after making a name for himself out in the world? Or crawling back in defeat? Maybe tragedy (death of a family member) brings him home but tragedy is turned to joy with the help of a special someone.

Whatever his reasons, he heads home to claim — or discover — true love was right in front of him all along. These stories must be about men returning home and falling in love, whether with someone from their pasts or with someone new. Show us who, or what, brings him home again and what kind of welcome he receives.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:

  • Stories must be between 12,000 words or longer
  • Stories must contain a romance — any heat level, from sweet to erotic
  • Romance must be MM or MMM ONLY
  • Stories must be contemporary
  • Adult stories only (no YA)

All stories submitted must adhere to the general guidelines found on our website. We do not consider multiple or simultaneous submissions. Reprints will be considered only if the author holds exclusive rights to republish.

HOW TO SUBMIT:

Send a blurb and the full manuscript to submissions@jms-books.com with “Coming Home” and the title of your story in the subject line. Include any author credentials you may have.

We will acknowledge receipt of your submission immediately, and make a decision on your story within 4 business days.


Elliot Cooper on My Boyfriend’s Back

October 27, 2016

Today’s guest is Elliot Cooper, whose latest MM romance My Boyfriend’s Back is available now!

About My Boyfriend’s Back:

When setting the scene for a novel where a zombie and a necromancer fall (back) in love, it seemed like Halloween would be the perfect backdrop. It’s one of my favorite holidays, with its costume tradition, creepy airs, and harvest decor. (And it’s my wedding anniversary, too!)

The holiday is firmly rooted in the old belief that the veil between the realms of the living and the dead is especially thin. What better time of year than cool and spooky autumn for a tale of resurrection gone awry? Also, who doesn’t love a good Halloween party? Especially one thrown by college aged mages!

But another unexpected bonus of a Halloween setting was an additional layer of character development. I’m not the sort of author to write exhaustive lists of characters’ likes, dislikes, hobbies, and minute experiences. So when I realized I’d have to come up with which costumes my characters would wear for Halloween, I took it as an opportunity to let them talk, let their personalities shine through their choices. And it was just as fun and interesting to see how each of them reacted to the others’ costumes.

Blurb:

After losing both of his parents, Academy of Magecraft student Steven Durant doesn’t want to see anyone else lose a loved one before their time. Traditional resurrection methods, however, only create mindless, flesh-hungry zombies; they’re no cure for death. He’s certain his unique brand of necromancy — using alchemy and blood magic — is the only answer.

When his boyfriend, Dax Everhart, has a fatal accident, Steven sees no choice but to use his experimental Lazarus Elixir. Dax comes back wrong, but the more humans he consumes, the more human he becomes.

With the help of his best friends, his ghostly aunt, and her living doll homunculus, Steven fights to regain normalcy and repair his shattered relationship with Dax. But with Dax openly embracing his monstrous nature, Steven shoulders the guilt of assisting in a murder spree that could lead the mundane and magical police right to their door.
