Synopsis:

Is it true Leap Year is bad luck for lovers? Or is romantic magic possible?

It’s been seven years since we’ve seen filmmakers Thomas and Matt and their lovable family members. Living full-time in Black Point, on the Hawaiian island of Oahu, they are thriving in their sun-kissed lifestyle with their healthy, happy, young daughter, Rose. But tragedy soon strikes when Canadian-born Thomas, who thought his immigration process was assured, is stunned to receive a deportation order from Homeland Security. Leave the United States within sixty days. Or else.

Matt is shocked to learn that Thomas kept silent about his legal problems. Will he be forced to leave the life he and Matt created? Or can he prove to the government that they really are in love, that their marriage is genuine, and all of this is a terrible mistake.

Summer Rain, Orgasmic Texas Dawn, #5 OUT NOW!

I’m thrilled to announce that Summer Rain, Orgasmic Texas Dawn, #5 is live on Amazon! This was such a fun series to write with my late writing partner, Author DjManly who came up with this idea in the first place. In books 5-8, we meet a new set of US Marshals and follow their twisty romance. Jubilee and Kieran from the first four books are still around!
All sales go to DJ’s husband ❤
Sean Mercado, a rookie Dallas Marshal, and Nicholas Fournier, a Canadian cop, are pulled into Jubilee and Kieran’s lives after a near death experience for Jubilee who is shot during a bank holdup that leaves him seriously wounded.
Former Canadian Special Ops Nicholas Fournier never dreamed making a deposit at a Dallas bank for his ailing aunt would change his life, but it does. He meets US Marshal Jubilee Mason who in turn introduces him to Sean Mercado, a new recruit to the Big D. Nicholas is still reeling from a romantic fiasco where he threw caution to the wind traveling to Texas to meet a guy he communicated with online.
Though planning to fly back home, he’s tempted to spend a little more time with the hunky Louisiana transplant and find out a little more about the US Marshals. He soon finds there’s a lot going on in this hectic Texas city and it ain’t just summer rain.

But unemployment and dealing with his stubborn dad and his extremely young stepmother doesn’t make Koh feel especially merry and bright. His Japanese-born father is a traditionalist who likes to celebrate with the old country ways of doing things—fried chicken on the table and Santa-San bringing gifts to all.

But Koh soon learns that everybody deals with pain and loss in different ways. As he adjusts to being back in the islands, he encounters Adam Takagawa, the guy he loved all through high school. Will their passion flare again? Can some things broken really be fixed? Is sad and lonely Koh due a Christmas miracle after all?

It’s Tiki Time With Author SCOTT BURY + FREE BOOK GIVEAWAY!!

 

 

Aloha Gang, the amazing Scott Bury has a new book out on November 24 – available now for preorder on Amazon – but did I ask him some intelligent questions about it? Heck, no. I asked him Five Stupid Questions and he was silly enough, er, I mean, kind enough to answer them!

His new book, Echoes: A Hawaiian Storm Mystery,  is wonderful! It is FBI Special Agent Vanessa Storm’s last case and I am giving away a free copy to one lucky winner so please comment on this post to enter the draw for the giveaway.

Purchase Link: https://tinyurl.com/2nvutvew

In the meantime, ponder some of his thoughtful answers here!

  1. Hi Scott! What’s your favourite cocktail? I’ll have the cabana boys whip one up for you while I ask you some stupid, I mean important questions. First of all, though, I’d like to ask how you are doing. As the guys whip up a drink for you could you please tell us what’s been going on?

Gin and tonic. Good gin. With ice. Stir it, shake it, I don’t care.

So, what’s going on? Well, I just had a hernia repair operation. It went well, but everything is still tender, so experimenting with any of the positions mentioned in your books is out for the time being.

What else? For the past year and a half, most of my writing time has been taken up with my podcast, Beyond Barbarossa—the first English-language podcast in the world that focuses on the Eastern Front of World War II.

However, I have just finished the fourth installment of my Hawaiian Storm mystery series. It’s now with the editor. Next, I’m doing a clean-up of my first novel, The Bones of the Earth, whose editor, it turns out, missed a lot. I’m also commissioning a new cover.

Whew. All that made me thirsty. Where’s that G&T?

2. Yum! Who do you know that is most likely to have been abducted by aliens?
I think my brother, Brent. He really has his own perspective, and isn’t hesitant to tell anyone about it.

3. If you could go back in time and be anybody in history, who would it be?
I don’t want to go too far back in history. Not before antibiotics, certainly. So I guess, Umberto Eco: respected author who lived in Italy and got to be a university professor in a field he invented. Italian food and wine every day!

4. Oooh, I loved his book The Name of the Rose. But I digress. You’re stuck on a deserted island after a three-hour tour which goes awry. Name six people alive or dead you’d enjoy being marooned with – and what would be your fantasy castaway meal?
Six people, living or dead: my wife, Roxanne; Gordon Lightfoot; Denis Diderot (the French compiler of the first encyclopedia); Sophia Loren; Boudicca; and Nelson Mandela.

The meal would have to be varied to accommodate this broad range. So I’d start with fresh fish roasted on an open fire on the beach, with local vegetables as sides. Also, pepper steak (love a pepper steak), roasted shrimp, wine, and for dessert, walnut torte (Roxanne makes an awesome walnut torte) and espresso.

5. I want to be marooned with you! Last question. If you were all stuck for some time, which of your guests would you all eat first?

Boudicca. She’d be the most dangerous.

Scott Bury: Everyone who knew me as a child has pointed out that I “always had my nose in a book.”

Writing style has always been important to my taste. I liked writers who could describe a setting, situation or emotion in visceral ways. Also, writers who had unique ideas.

I’ve also always been a writer, myself. My favourite class in grade and middle school was Composition, where I could write stories. My high school yearbook published three of my stories.

After university, I became an editor and journalist, a career I pursued for over 20 years. Being an editor of books and magazines taught me how to lay out these products, and also the value of spare and tight writing.

I always loved stories about dragons. My Father’s Dragon was one of the first books I remember reading, and I loved The Hobbit. When my sons were children, I wanted to get them some good dragon stories, but I was unhappy with most of such books on the shelves at the time. All the dragons were way to friendly, tame mounts for humans. I thought, no, dragons represent the deepest power of nature. They have no time, nor interest in giving humans rides. So I set out to write a dragon story that fit into that idea, which became The Bones of the Earth.

Since then, I’ve published another 15 titles in a broad range of genres, from fantasy to mystery and biography.

I live in Canada’s capital city, close to nature, with my wife of 41 years, two cats and the least obedient dog in history. My two mighty sons live nearby, thankfully. I have one grandson, who lives in the U.S. with his mother.

I still love to read, and creating stories is one of my favourite things to do. I actually love the process of writing. And once I’ve fully healed, I look forward to getting back to outdoor activity like cycling, skiing and canoeing.

Next book is one my wife really wants me to write, because she says I’m the leading authority: “How to Drive Your Spouse Crazy.” I’m deep into the research now, so I’d love to hear from any readers who have tips of their own on the topic.

Dani’s story Finding Home looks so intriguing. Here is the synopsis:
After Trevor Morgan became paralyzed in an accident, a new physical therapist was
hired to try to help him. Can Jayce Harley, a home and hearth Brownie, who travels
around trying to help others with his powers, find his home with Trevor?
~~~
Well, I could ask Dani about this story and all kinds of intelligent things, but I like
stupid. And I have an abundance of idiotic questions. So here goes!

1. Hi Dani! What’s your favorite cocktail? I’ll have the cabana boys whip one up for
you while I ask you some stupid, I mean important questions. First of all, though, I’d
like to ask how you are doing. You’ve had a death in the family, and you are dealing
with health issues, which is why we are all participating in the Uncontrolled Chaos
Anthology. As the guys whip up a drink for you could you please tell us what’s been
going on?
Not much. Lying around like the bed bug that I am. Trying to stay out of trouble, but
that damn idiot keeps coming back with friends and I get blamed for it! So, my fav
drink (when I’m not on meds) is a Long Island Iced Tea.

2. Yum! Who do you know that is most likely to have been abducted by aliens?
Oh, (waves hands in the air madly) pick me, pick me!! I wanna go play in space with
the aliens. Maybe if I can find my own medical pod, it could fix my spine! None of this
waiting for some damn human doctor.

3. If you could go back in time and be anybody in history, who would it be?
Do I only have to pick one??? Alexander the Great, Cleopatra, Abraham Lincoln, so
many fascinating people in history.

4. You’re stuck on a deserted island after a three-hour tour which goes awry. Name six
people alive or dead you’d enjoy being marooned with – and what would be your
fantasy castaway meal?
Gotta have Steak & Lobster (no fish as I’m deathly allergic to it). With a really good
chocolate cake for desert, can never have too much chocolate!
Now, who to have with me…I’d love to have the folks I mentioned above: Alexander
the Great, Cleopatra, Abraham Lincoln, Freddy Mercury, JFK, and Aristotle. Could you
imagine the dinner conversation with them??

5. I want to be marooned with you! Last question. If you were all stuck for some time, which of your guests would you all eat first?
Probably Cleopatra, since (other than me) she’d probably have the most meat on her
bones…LOL!

Dani Gray: I’ve been an avid reader for as long as I can remember. I still remember one
of the first books I read, it was the Bobbsey Twins. As I got older, I moved into more the
interesting books, but some of the typo’s made me nuts! So, after contacting writers I
started a career of where I began content editing (I wouldn’t know good grammar if it
bit me in the glutes), beta reading and brainstorming. After being harassed for a couple
of years by some of the writers, I gave in and have now begun to write.
I live in central Canada with my hubby of over 30 years, 4 kids, and 6 grandkids. We
have a collection of pets, including our guard cat. I love nothing more than curling up
with a good book, or my laptop to work on the next thing that catches the muse, much
to the hubby’s frustration. I would love to hear from readers!

It’s Tiki Time! Five Stupid Questions for author A.J. Sherwood

 

A.J. Sherwood is a multi-talented author. She’s so prolific, she even has multiple pen names! She is also one of the participants in the upcoming charity anthology Uncontrolled Chaos, available now on preorder at Amazon and available only for the month of August. So, no dilly-dally!

A.J.’s story How Tan Acquired an Apprentice looks amazing!

Synopsis: Tan adopts an apprentice. No, he does not consult his husband first, why do you ask?

Don’t worry Hans actually takes care of the kid, to bonk is not the question, it is the answer, Tan’s priority is cats, no one is surprised, revenge served hot, fireball kind of hot, anyone else scared Tan has acquired a minion?

 

Well, I could ask A.J. about this story and all kinds of intelligent things, but I like stupid. And I have an abundance of idiotic questions. So here goes!

 

  1. Hi A.J.! What’s your favorite cocktail? I’ll have the cabana boys whip one up for you while I ask you some stupid, I mean important questions.

 

So funny story, up until recently I’ve never been able to try alcohol. I’ve had health issues that prevented it. But! I’m now recovered enough that it doesn’t bother me. I tried a Jack Daniel’s Peach margarita the other day and that was tasty. So something fruity, please!

 

  1. If you could have an accent in the world, which one would you choose?

 

Uhhh….like, any of them? I’m horrific with accents. XD

  1. When you’re alone in your car, what do you think about?

Stories. My brain is not the type to shut up.

 

  1. I see you have your own coloring book out. I need to know, as a kid, did you color inside the lines or were you a bit of a daredevil and did you color outside them?

I colored inside the lines. Then I decided there needed to be more background and added to it. So both?

  1. You’re stuck on a deserted island after a three-hour tour which goes awry. Name six people alive or dead you’d enjoy being marooned with – and what would be your fantasy castaway meal?

Hmmm, I would think my brothers Chris and Jarrett, my best friends, Katie, Khanh and Jon. I’d take Max too just to keep the rest of us calm.

 

A.J. Sherwood believes in happily ever afters, magic, dragons, good men, and dark chocolate. She’s often dreams at night of delectable men doing sexy things with each other. In between writing multiple books (often at the same time) she pets her cats, plays with her dogs, and attempts insane things like aerial yoga.

She currently resides in Michigan with aforementioned cats and dogs.
