Ebook Giveaway: Loving Edits by Mickie B. Ashling [CONTEST CLOSED]

Congrats to Teresa, who won the copy of Gay Best Friend (G-A-Y, Book 10) by Kim Dare! Gay Best Friend was released yesterday by Total-E-Bound.

Many thanks to Mickie B. Ashling for donating a copy of her recent m/m romance, Loving Edits, for a lucky commenter to win!

Loving Edits celebrates the joys and sorrows of true love while exploring the human spirit.

When bestselling novelist Mick Henley contacts his editor and former lover, Paul Alcott, after a seven-year absence, hearing Mick’s voice reinforces what Paul has known all along – he still loves Mick. The possible reunion entices Paul into considering a dinner invitation, but his hopes are dashed when he learns Mick is in a loving relationship with Spanish Jai alai player Tono Garat.

Paul still accepts the invitation, and Mick asks Paul to help Tono through the final revision of a love story he’s written, inspired by his affair with Mick. When Paul refuses, Mick reveals he’s been diagnosed with a fatal disease, and the novel is Tono’s only means of coping with the eventual outcome.

Paul and Tono resent each other, but they can’t deny the strong sexual attraction between them. Can the past blend with the present to ease the way for Mick’s inevitable future? Will they overcome their differences to provide the loving support necessary to sustain the man they love or will their collision destroy Mick’s final days?

About Mickie

Reading and traveling are my hobbies, but writing is my life. I was introduced to the world of men who love men around the time I discovered Queer as Folk in 2000. The characters on that show intrigued me, and I began to read everything I could find in the m/m genre. Soon after, I found myself writing the kind of stories that I enjoyed reading.

All of my novels are contemporary, and yes, I admit, filled with angst. Drama and emotional upheaval seem to be the ongoing theme so far; I like hurt/comfort stories where my characters work hard for their happy endings. There are usually graphic sex scenes, so if you are uncomfortable with the concept of men loving men, I suggest you move on.

I’ve had the good fortune to live in many parts of the world, but right now, home is a suburb outside the Windy City where the long winters are very conducive to writing.

You can find out more about Mickie and her books at her website.

    I am a fierce Panther Princess Shark, swimming across the carpet in search of my prey, the elusive furry pink mousefish!

  2. Uh huh. Sure Mayhem. You look more like Synchronized Swimmer Panther Princess to me. You could be wearing a sparkly pink bathing suit and cap, you know. Think about it.

  3. I sure hope nobody is going to die… but I would like to find out.
    Haven’t heard of panther sharks before, only of tiger sharks, but your princess is giving a great performance! ;D

  4. Hi, Mickie! Thanks for stopping by – and you are very welcome. 🙂

    *waves at everyone*

  5. Not entering but wanted to stop by and say that this book was incredible!


  6. Wow, that sounds like an interesting and unusual plot. And Heidi Cullinan loved it, and I love Heidi Cullinan…does the reflexive property of algebra work here and mean that I’ll love this book, too? Methinks I’ll have to find out, and winning it would be a lovely way to do so. 🙂

    Also, May is too cute! Living with cats provides endless entertainment, who needs television?!

  7. Thank you Chris and Kim!

    This sounds like a wonderful book, I will have to pick it up the next time I go shopping.

    May that furry pink mousefish doesn’t stand a chance

  8. I am entering this contest as I would love to win a copy of this book. I love Mickie’s writing and this book certainly appeals.

  9. If I lived with Miss May, I’d keep an endless supply of Sparkly Pink Furry Mousefish on hand to keep the Panther Sharks at bay. Just sayin’.

  10. Angst? H/C? Me, please! And with panther princess shark stalking her prey, does this mean you’re leaping from couch to armoire to loveseat to avoid dipping your toes into that dangerous water — er, carpet?

  11. I am entering the contest. This author is new to me and I look forward in reading this and other books.
