Many thanks to Amy Lane for donating a signed paperback copy of her forthcoming m/m romance, The Talker Collection, for a lucky commenter to win!Â The Talker Collection will be released by Dreamspinner Press on May 11. (Amy is willing to mail this worldwide, too!)
One day, Tate “Talker” Walker sits next to Brian Cooper on a track meet bus – and sees him like nobody else on the planet has ever seen him before. One day, Brian Cooper looks at Talker’s bright punk facade and listens past his constant chatter – and knows him like nobody else on the planet will ever know him again. One day, two boys meet, and even though they fall in love, it’s still a long and bumpy ride.
Tate needs to learn to listen, Brian needs to learn to speak up, and the event that teaches them both exactly what they need from each other almost destroys Tate and leaves Brian no recourse but violence. For their love to survive, Tate and Brian have to overcome the pain of violation and the repercussions of revenge. Even more difficult, they have to hold each other steady while one finds his peace and the other his voice, because a dream boy isn’t really a dream boy if he doesn’t know his own worth.
Talker (September 2010), Talker’s Redemption (January 2011), and Talker’s Graduation (October 2011) were previously published individually in ebook format by Dreamspinner Press.

Amy Lane knits, mothers four children, and writes like sheâ€™s got a slave-driver with a whip and a cattle-prod standing behind her chair. She, her brood, and her beloved mate, Mack, live in a crumbling mortgage in Citrus Heights, California, which is riddled with spiders, cats, a really gassy dog, and more than its share of fancy and weirdness. Feel free to visit her at her blog and her website, where she will ride the buzz of receiving your e-mail until her head swells and she can no longer leave the house.
