Black Sheep: Letting go of the Past cover reveal!

Hi all,

As some might know and other might not, I'm not just a reader but also a writer and my online serial Black Sheep will be released in both ebook and a paperback.
I renamed the different parts and have been working with an editor to make it the best it can be.

Black Sheep Part 1 is now renamed (in ebook and print) to Black Sheep: Letting go of the Past and will be released on the 12th of December this year. Keep an eye out for it!

Without further ado the cover:



Also, for those of you who have already read the online version, I added a short story to the end of the book so that even you have something new to read ;)

I changed the Black Sheep Trilogy page on my website so that it now reflects the ebook and print editions, which you can check out here: Black Sheep Trilogy

Kindle Touch review

Today I finally got my Kindle Touch in. The release date for the UK was moved backward one week otherwise it would only have come out tomorrow but instead it came out last Friday. I had been keeping my eye on it for quite a while. I love my K3 and will definitely be using it quite a lot still in the future (see below why) but it is so cute and fast that I really like the K touch.

Gay men and how I like them best

Due to the amazing thing that is the internet, the kindle and (self)publishing I feel I need to write this post about something that really really bugs me and leaves me not reading about half the books I get on my kindle.

Crappy gay books

There, I said it and now I'll explain what I mean with that.

[gay] College Boys - Daisy Harris

I recently found a new writer through the #amwriting hashtag on twitter and was lucky that she was releasing a new book only days after. I got my hands on a copy and LOVED it!

Smashwords promotion!

Right now Smashwords is running a promotion named "Read an eBook week" which runs from 4-10 March.

In this promotion indie authors and publishers can put their ebooks up for a reduced price (25% off, 50% off or 75% off) or for free (100% off) for the week.
I remember that I picked up some books there last year but apparently I never blogged about it. Since I can't see which books I bought on Smashwords at what date I won't be able to find the right ones but I'm sure I've read almost all of them.
For me the past year has been quite amazing with me reading a lot of indie and small press works and often interacting with some of the writers on a regular base.
So in return I'm sharing these writers with you, this week you can pick up their book for free and try them out. Next week and after you'll have to pay for them and I hope you will find these writers as good as I do and keep buying their work.

In no apparent order:
Nephylim has her gay fiction book up for sale named Enigma and you can find it here: Nephylim - Enigma (free)
Red Haircrow has put their books up for sale ranging in topics from non-fiction to gay fiction and fantasy. You can find the list of his published works here: Red Haircrow - all works (free)
Katie Salidas has put the first instalment of her Immortalis series up for free, Carpe Noctem is about a young woman who suddenly has to deal with being turned into a vampire and has to learn to find her feet between century old vendettas and the handsome man who turned her. Katie Salidas - Carpe Noctem (free)

You can find all the books for this promotion here: Read an eBook week
Books will probably be added all the way through the week so check back on the website to see the new books.
