*kermit flail Monday* New Releases for April

Hey all!

We’ve got some new and unique offerings for first Monday of the month– some authors I haven’t read, and an author that I have *blush* have!  I love that people are jumping on the bandwagon for this feature here– and I love that I’m not just featuring romance.  Last month I was featuring a bio by Gini Koch, and this month I’ve got some raunchy and raw erotica– so, you know, variety!

This week also features a new writer who also knits, as well as two anthologies.  With the two anthologies, since Grand Adventures has been so successful, I think the idea is really sort of awesome!  (I always loved anthologies myself– it’s the ADHD– little baby fics satisfy my buzzing brain.)

 And, well, this week features my own releases, which, granted, are on May 2nd, but since the first Monday in May isn’t until the 5th, and it IS my own blog, well, I’m claiming privilege.

So there’s my intro, let’s get to the good stuff!

This first one is notable not just because it’s sci-fi, but for the lovely cover– I’m seriously a fan.  The stories sound amazing, too!

Not in the Stars by Angel Martinez et. al

Toni Griffin, Mathilde Watson, Freddy MacKay, Angel Martinez, and edited by Erika O Williams.

Since the dawn of human expression, man has gazed up at the heavens in wonder, inspired by the wheeling of the stars to explain his surroundings. While our perception of those surroundings have changed, from thinking of the Earth as a flat, stable plane to realizing we’re falling through space in a tiny atmospheric bubble, our wonder remains constant. 

Space stations, alien races, far-flung planets—join the Mischief Corner authors as they explore the possibilities the stars might offer. The catch? Returning to mundane old Earth might be harder than you think.

Okay– I adore Shae, and we spent some lovely time in Atlanta being silly together, and I also have a fair amount of girlie love for J.p., Ally, Eden, and Kiernan– I love them all!  So besides the hilarious title (and dudes) and the campy cover, there’s also the fact that I know know these writers and expect the awesomeness to be never-ending!

Butt Ninjas from Hell

They move like shadows through the night… when they aren’t
tripping over the furniture. Porn stars, holy emissaries, demons, and even just
plain humans—ninjas come in all forms and from all kinds of Hell in this
erotically charged comedic Wilde City anthology. Whether it’s the world of
second-rate television, fluttering ninja stars, obsessions over a bronzy-olive
toned soldier, or magic backsides, your authorial guides will take you where
few readers have ever dared to go… without protection.

Okay, so this next offering isn’t my usual, but it was, I’ll admit, a porntastic, cartoon-oriented raunch-fest.  And, well, sometimes we need those in our book collection, for, uhm, raunch related reasons!  Porny fun– just what the title says, handsome older men and eager young college boys. Enjoy!

This special DOUBLE FEATURE edition contains Episodes #1 and #2 of MAKE ME WATCH: THE McINTYRE MEN for only a dollar more than the price of each individual episode. That’s 23,000 words of scorching action featuring handsome older men and eager young college boys. 

#1 Bobby’s Plan 

Henry Ruiz loves living down the street from a university campus. There’s a non-stop parade of gorgeous young men in and out of the former Marine’s garage apartment, eager for the kind of off-campus lessons only a handsome older man can provide. But when fraternity boy Bobby McIntyre comes to Henry with a devious plan, everything changes. Bobby wants to make his handsome, uptight boyfriend a little less controlling, and he needs Henry’s seductive powers to do it. There’s just one problem. Bobby is the son of Henry’s closest friend in the world. And his plan is anything but orthodox. 

Will Henry give into temptation? Will Bobby’s plan even work? 

#2, Campus Security 

Fraternity boy Bobby McIntyre’s plot to make his handsome, uptight boyfriend a little more submissive didn’t go according to plan. And now his manipulations have left him at the mercy of two campus security officers with a burning desire to peer inside the walls of Bobby’s fraternity…literally. But Bobby McIntyre is nothing if not resourceful and there’s nothing he knows how to do more than make an older man happy. Picking up exactly where Episode #1 left off, Episode #2 is told entirely from Bobby’s point-of-view. 

WARNING: Contains 8 sizzling scenes of handsome older men and seductive young college boys, spiced with taboo themes and plenty of voyeurism. 

Okay, knitters?  Anyta is newly initiated into our numbers– remember that.  She’s a knitter.  She’s kin.  She’s also funny, kind, and lovely on e-mail, and I’ve enjoyed our conversations very much.  I bought this one for my Kindle and it’s waiting for a quiet moment.  I’m so excited! 

Anyta Sunday
Liam Davis is a serious journalist, and he’s good at it.

Or at least, he was. Until the chief of Scribe, the campus magazine, makes him give up his politics column to write for the party page—the party page that is problematic for two reasons: One, it threatens Liam’s chance of getting the traineeship with his apathetic father at his prestigious newspaper company, and two, he has no idea what it means to party, let alone how to capture this new audience’s attention!

But Liam Davis is no quitter. He’s determined to prove to his father, the chief, and above all himself that he can do it—and do itwell.

Life doesn’t make it easy. Not when Freddy Krueger comes stalking out of the shadows to attack him. Luckily the Raven, the campus vigilante—the vigilante getting hate mail sent to Scribe’s opinions page—comes to his rescue.

Now, between finding the perfect angle for his party page columns and making friends (and perhaps something more?), Liam needs to find this mysterious Raven—not only to thank him, but to warn him to watch his back.

And then, from me, we’ve got a few offerings.  

The first is the Italian translation of A Solid Core of Alpha, as well as the Spanish translation of Clear Water.  We also have the audio book version of Chase in Shadow, which, all in all, is sort of damned cool!

We also have, for the first time in paperback, the Granby knitting novellas all together in The Granby Knitting Menagerie, which is sort of awesome.  (The cover… omg!  Guys!  The cover!)  And, of course, the huge topper on the release sunday is Jeremy and Aiden’s (from The Granby Knitting Menagerie: How to Raise an Honest Rabbit) full length book, Blackbird Knitting in a Bunny’s Lair.  I’ve heard a lot of feedback about how Jeremy Bunny has captured and broken hearts.  This book is where he gets to mend them.  And where the fate of the floor safe is finally decided– because I know you were all curious. 
So here we go–

by Amy Lane
Welcome to Granby, Colorado, a small town at the foot of the Rocky Mountains where it snows eight months out of the year and knitting is a mashup of art form, necessity, and religion. Here you will meet: 

* Rance “Craw” Crawford, owner of the local alpaca farm and fiber mill, who courts tenderfoot Ben McCutcheon with awkwardness and the most lovingly handcrafted knitted garments known to man. 

* Jeremy Stillson, ex-con and ex-grifter, who comes to work for Craw and learns the secrets to being honest are in both the yarn he learns to use and in Aiden Rhodes, his young co-worker, who has a very direct way of dealing with life and seducing Jeremy. 

* Stanley Schulz, yarn buyer and Craw’s ex-lover, who discovers the joys of knitting alone—and then discovers the joys of knitting for Johnny, a delivery driver with a shady past. Join this menagerie of knitters as they craft to keep their toes toasty and their hearts warm. 

Novellas in this anthology originally published as eBooks by Dreamspinner Press.

And, if you’re already read all the stories in The Granby Knitting Menagerie, (and, even if you haven’t) then you’re probably ready for the next one.  I really loved writing this– going back to visit Jeremy and Aiden was lovely, and like I said– the floor safe!

Sequel to Knitter in His Natural Habitat
A Granby Knitting Novel 

After three years of waiting for “rabbit” Jeremy to commit to a life in Granby—and a life together—Aiden Rhodes was appalled when Jeremy sustained a nearly fatal beating to keep a friend out of harm’s way. How could Aiden’s bunny put himself in danger like that? 

Aiden needs to get over himself, because Jeremy has a long road to recovery, and he’s going to need Aiden’s promise of love every step of the way. Jeremy has new scars on his face and body to deal with, and his heart can’t afford any more wounds. 

When their friend’s baby needs some special care, the two men find common ground to firm up their shaky union. With Aiden’s support and his boss’s inspiration, Jeremy comes up with a plan to make sure Ariadne’s little blackbird comes into this world with everything she needs. While Jeremy grows into his new role as protector, Aiden needs to ease back on his protectiveness over his once-timid lover. Aiden may be a wolf in student’s clothing and Jeremy may be a rabbit of a man, but that doesn’t mean they can’t walk the wilds of Granby together.
