Hello everyone! My name is Sophie Bonaste and I am guest posting today as part of the GRL Blog Tour. But before I begin I want to send a big thanks to Lisa Horan and all of the great bloggers helping to promote all of us authors attending this year’s conference.

As I write this, there are less than three weeks until GayRomLit 2014! It’s crazy to think that I’m going to Chicago not as a reader, but as a Supporting Author. I didn’t even have one book released at this time last year and now I have that title. I am so honored to stand next to some of the best authors in the genre and I can only hope that I will be able to do GRL proud. Continue Reading

I would like to thank The Novel Approach for hosting me today. I’m taking you behind the scenes to the making of Twin Flames with today’s topic of “world rules.”

Lisa_avatar_twitterThe Novel Approach is thrilled to welcome Poppy Dennison to the blog today, one half of the dynamic writing duo of Poppy and Rhys Ford, and their newest release Creature Feature 2.

Poppy’s sizzling and sexy Rise of Revenants and Rhys’s creatively inspired Legacy of Blood and Death are stories chock full of everything great Urban Fantasy should be—magical, fantastical, humorous, a touch horrifying, and, of course, there’s a little bit of romance to let your imagination go wild.

Between vampyres, werewolves, a sticky-fingered dark fairy with a temper and a sweet tooth, a couple of mages, a stray troll, and the hunters working to keep the city of Detroit safe, these two stories have been crafted to flow seamlessly together to bring the paranormal to a dark and depressing contemporary city.
