Follow Me Into Darkness Reboot

Hey book friends! Judith here!

Now as some of you might have seen, the Carinvale/Mardi Gras anthology, Follow Me Into Darkness, got a reboot this week in honor of its one year anniversary. ONE YEAR! A year that flew by so oddly fast that I can’t really remember much of it though a few solid, exciting things do stand out:

J.C. Lillis put out a phenomenal f/f book about musicians!

Roan Parrish finally gave me Leo and Will’s story and it was everything I wanted and hoped for (and some things I didn’t even realize I wanted and hoped for!)

J.R. Gray wrote his first m/f novel! 

Santino Hassell wrote so many books I can’t keep up! But here he tells you all about them!

Kris Ripper banged out The Queers of La Vista! (oh and has a patreon account now. Totally go support Ripper!)

In honor of all these amazing things, the Follow Me Into Darkness crew has a giveaway plus a MEGA SALE on the book itself. 99 cents won’t get you a cup of coffee anymore (I mean, really Starbucks? 2.33 for a cup of coffee?!) but it will get you five diverse stories about people trying to take off their masks and just live. So enter the giveaway, buy the book, and take off your masks right along with us.

What’s on My Kindle: February 10th, 2017!

Hey hey, book bingers! New What’s On My Kindle is here. Today I talk books by: Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell, Joe Abercrombie, and Piper Vaughn.


 


Can’t wait to listen but really need some new books? Here’s what’s on my kindle this week:

Hard Wired by Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell

hard wire

My FallenCon agenda is simple: sit on a couple of panels and let people meet the real me. Jesse Garvy—mod of a famous Twitch channel and, if I ever come out of my shell, future vlogger. I definitely didn’t plan to sleep with a moody tattooed fan-artist, but he’s gorgeous and can’t keep his hands off me. There’s a first time for everything, and my first time with a guy turns out to be the hottest experience of my life.

But the next day, I find out my moody fan-artist is Ian Larsen AKA Cherry—someone I’ve known online for years. And he’d known exactly who I was while shoving me up against that wall. Before I figure out whether to be pissed or flattered, the con ends.

Now we’re back online, and he’s acting like nothing happened. But despite the distance between us, and the way he clings to the safety of his online persona, we made a real connection that night. I don’t plan to let him forget.

Half a King by Joe Abercrombie

half

Prince Yarvi has vowed to regain a throne he never wanted. But first he must survive cruelty, chains, and the bitter waters of the Shattered Sea. And he must do it all with only one good hand.

The deceived will become the deceiver.

Born a weakling in the eyes of his father, Yarvi is alone in a world where a strong arm and a cold heart rule. He cannot grip a shield or swing an axe, so he must sharpen his mind to a deadly edge.

The betrayed will become the betrayer.

Gathering a strange fellowship of the outcast and the lost, he finds they can do more to help him become the man he needs to be than any court of nobles could.

Will the usurped become the usurper?

But even with loyal friends at his side, Yarvi finds that his path may end as it began—in twists, and traps, and tragedy.

***

Wanting by Piper Vaughn

wanting

Jonah Beckett has been in love with his older brother’s best friend, George “Laurie” DeWitt, since he was thirteen-years-old. When his boyfriend, Dirk, breaks up with him for refusing to put out, Jonah uses his heartbreak over the situation as an excuse to ask Laurie to teach him all about sex before he starts college in the fall. Problem is, he made Dirk up, and Jonah has no idea what will happen when Laurie finally finds out the truth.

Authors in Audio on 11/16: Santino Hassell and Karen Stivali talk NaNoWriMo

Hello! And welcome back to Authors in Audio, a podcast special at Binge on Books which features authors Santino Hassell and Karen Stivali answering reader questions in audio! You asked and they answered and through the end of the year, this new series of Authors in Audio will captivate you.

Today they’re focusing on NaNoWriMo and have a message for you about this special month before starting…

karen-and-santino-a-in-a-for-b-on-b-long-version
Hi Everyone,
 
We wanted to include a note to go along with this podcast because it’s not a typical one.
 
As all of you know, Santino and I both have very busy schedules, but we do our best to make time to record these podcasts because we enjoy them and hope they’re helpful to our listeners. We’d intended to record this special NaNo edition of the podcast last Tuesday, before I left town for a conference, but we wound up listening to the election results instead and, despite our efforts, neither of us felt up to recording anything that night.
 
We recorded this while I was away and had some unfortunate technical difficulties, so the sound is off in a few places which makes it sound like I’m answering questions before Santino asked them. Since this is about NaNo we wanted to get the podcast to you in November because, in spite of the fact that both of us have been derailed from NaNo this year, for the past 5-6 years we’ve both found NaNo to be an incredibly positive experience.
 
Apologies for any parts that are hard to hear and for the fact that we’re not quite our normal peppy selves.
 
Thanks for tuning in to listen to our podcasts. I’m always grateful for the laughs we have while recording these. We hope you can laugh along with us.
 
All the best,
Karen and Santino
