Ebook giveaway: Dancing Days by Clare London [CONTEST CLOSED]



Congrats to Anke, who won Mapping the Shadows by Becky Black!



Many thanks to Clare London for donating an ebook copy of her recently released m/m romance, Dancing Days, for a lucky commenter to win!

The day Glen Carson loses his wallet is the day that changes his life. The wallet is returned by Aston Walsh, a man he hasn’t seen for twenty years. He and Aston had a passionate and intense romance when they were in their late twenties, and Glen thought their love would last forever. But his dreams were horribly shattered by a shocking confession from Aston, and they parted for good – or so Glen assumed. Now, two decades later, they’ve lived many years apart, created new histories, and built successful lives. Yet the spark between them is still there. Aston wants a second chance with Glen, but Glen is more cautious this time around. He has to decide if Aston’s regret is genuine, and if surrendering his heart to Aston again is worth the risk.

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2015 Daily Dose package “Never Too Late.”

About Clare

Clare London took her pen name from the city where she lives, loves, and writes. A lone, brave female in a frenetic, testosterone-fueled family home, she juggles her writing with her other day job as an accountant.

She’s written in many genres and across many settings, with novels and short stories published both online and in print. She says she likes variety in her writing while friends say she’s just fickle, but as long as both theories spawn good fiction, she’s happy. Most of her work features male/male romance and drama with a healthy serving of physical passion, as she enjoys both reading and writing about strong, sympathetic, and sexy characters.

Clare currently has several novels sulking at that tricky chapter three stage and plenty of other projects in mind… she just has to find out where she left them in that frenetic, testosterone-fueled family home.
All the details and free fiction are available at her website. Visit her today and say hello! You can also visit Clare at her blog, FacebookTwitter, and GoodReads.

The return of No time for Misadventures – making art!

But there are plenty of Misadventures in the archives to keep you busy if you really need a Misadventures fix. :)

“Fortunate”:

“The First Book” by Rita Dove:

Open it

Go ahead, it won’t bite.
Well…maybe a little.

More a nip, like. A tingle.
It’s pleasurable, really.

You see, it keeps on opening.
You may fall in.

Sure, it’s hard to get started;
remember learning to use

knife and fork? Dig in:
You’ll never reach the bottom.

It’s not like it’s the end of the world –
Just the world as you think

you know it.

“Saved paper”:

Back in the 1990s, there was a little card shop near the Uptown Theater. I can’t remember what it was called, but it used these little bags patterned with that I thought were too pretty (and looked too useful, even if I didn’t have a use for them…then) to just throw away. Today I stumbled across them again and now I have a use for them! I’m frankly amazed they survived all the moves!!

I took the bag apart and stuck it on the page, then tried to brighten it up a bit with some watercolors.

Ebook giveaway: Flashbulb (Flight HA1710 #3) by Clare London [CONTEST CLOSED]



Congrats to Emese, who won Played! (The Shamwell Tales #2) by JL Merrow! Played! is being released by Samhain Publishing today.



Many thanks to Clare London for donating an ebook copy of her freshly released m/m romance, Flashbulb (Flight HA1710 #3), for a lucky commenter to win!

Blythe Harris was taking his first flight to the USA and hopefully a whole new client base for his bespoke upholstery business. An adventure for him, he was both nervous and excited to attract the attention of a handsome steward. Things might have gone further – if Flight HA1710 hadn’t failed.

Marc Stafford is a self-confessed player, and he used his charm to seduce his cute passenger. But in the aftermath of the crash, he’s struggling to recover his confidence. The TV declares him a hero for saving passengers, but at night his nightmares trigger painful flashbulb memories of the crash.

In an Irish hospital, Bly realises that although his broken leg will recover, his career may not. And in Chicago, Marc can’t face returning to work. Neither of them can shake off the memory of their brief, sexy encounter. Both of them need to be with someone who understands exactly what they’ve been through. And on a middle ground they can make all their own.
