First and First Blog Tour: WhatsApp, Santino Hassell?

First and First Blog Tour in the house! If you haven’t heard of this book, or Santino Hassell’s gorgeous and gritty Five Boroughs series…umm…hi, I’m Judith. Have we met? It’s basically all I talk about. The writing is raw and honest, the characters are sexy and so so real. It’s just–gah! Read it ok?

For those of you who don’t know about this book (or series) here’s the blurb:

Caleb Stone was raised on the Upper East Side, where wealth and lineage reigns, and “alternative lifestyles” are hidden. It took him years to come out to his family, but he’s still stuck in the stranglehold of their expectations. Caleb knows he has to build his confidence and shake things up, but he doesn’t know how… until Oliver Buckley enters the picture.

Oli is everything Caleb isn’t—risk-taking, provocative, and fiercely independent. Disowned by his family, Oli has made his own way in the world and is beholden to no one. After a chance encounter on New Year’s Eve, Caleb is smitten.

As Caleb sheds the insecurities that have held him back for years, he makes bold steps toward changing his career and escaping years of sexual repression. But for Caleb to take full control of his life, he has to be brave enough to confront his feelings and trust Oli with his heart. 

And now, here’s Santino Hassell giving us the dirt on how important social media is to First and First + a giveaway! Read More

Author Chat with Binge on Books, February Edition: Roan Parrish

BoB Podcast Graphic for RP on 2-24It’s that time again. Time for a little Author Chat with Binge on Books! This month’s featured author is the fabulously talented Roan Parrish.

If you don’t know Roan, well, we need to rectify that stat. Last year she broke onto the romance scene with an electrifying debut novel: In the Middle of Somewhere was everything a first book should be. It was beautifully written, achingly nuanced, completely lacking in melodramatic angst, and far sexier than I would ever have expected from a tatted up professor with a chip on his shoulder and a hunky carpenter with secrets to hide. It was funny and irreverent and so very smart…much like Roan Parrish herself. The next novel in the series, Out of Nowhere, will release on 2/29 and let me tell you, it is 100% worth the seemingly endless wait (okay it was only a 6 month wait but still. We are all dying to know what happens next).

I sat down with Roan for this February edition of Author Chat to discuss upcoming projects (there are so so many! YES!), favorite books and writer idols, her love of all things food, her upcoming release and so much more. Plus at the very end, we get a deliciously extended tease featuring a sexy scene from Out of Nowhere and a hint of what’s in store for Colin and Rafe.

Roan Parrish

Roan Parrish is currently wandering between Philadelphia and New Orleans. When not writing, she can usually be found cutting her friends’ hair, meandering through whatever city she’s in while listening to torch songs and melodic death metal, or cooking overly elaborate meals. She loves bonfires, winter beaches, minor chord harmonies, and self-tattooing. One time she may or may not have baked a six-layer chocolate cake and then thrown it out the window in a fit of pique.

Time to Tease: Author Chat with Roan Parrish

Welcome to…TIME TO TEASE! A Friday post that hopefully will titillate and tempt and ultimately tide you over until the real deal hits the site next week!

“What exactly are you teasing us with, Judith?” you are no doubt asking yourself. Well, let me tell you!BoB Podcast Graphic for Roan Parrish

About two weeks ago, I sat down with author, Roan Parrish, and recorded a podcast that ran the gamut of literature: from House of Leaves to China Mieville, from Donna Tartt to Pig Latin as language of choice among the hip English Professor crowd. If you can imagine it, we discussed it. We talked a lot. A LOT. Most importantly though, we talked Out of Nowhere, Parrish’s upcoming release. It’s the much talked about sequel to her stunning debut, In the Middle of Somewhere, and it will gut you. No joke. Gut. You. But in the best possible way (if there is a best possible way to sob and ugly cry and roll around on the floor devastated that it’s over while riding the subway).

So today’s teaser is a teeny, tiny little outtake from that recording session where both of us reveal a secret of sorts. So…sit back and enjoy a little Roan Parrish in anticipation of her podcast out next week!
