In this modern retelling of “Little Red Riding Hood,” the wolf and the woodsman are cousins, and Ginger is the little girl who claims both of their hearts.

Cain.

Woodman.

Ginger.

When three children grow up together in the rolling hills of Kentucky horse country,

One becomes a predator

One becomes a protector

And one becomes prey.

Ginger McHuid has been in love with the “Dub Twins” – Cain Wolfram and Josiah Woodman – for as long as she can remember. And for as long as the cousins can remember, they’ve each loved Ginger in their own all-consuming ways.

One will win her

One will be cast away

While one follows her heart.

Blog Tour and Giveaway: Loving Blitz by Charlie Cochet

Hello all! Welcome to the first stop in the Loving Blitz mini blog tour, celebrating the release of the fourth novella in the North Pole City Tales series! A big thank you to It’s About the Book for hosting me today, and thank you to everyone stopping by.

MendingNoel150For those who might be unfamiliar with the series, North Pole City tales has been my own little holiday tradition since 2012 when the first story Mending Noel was released as part of Dreamspinner’s Advent Calendar anthology, Evergreen.

At the time, I hadn’t considered extending this little tale beyond one book, but a lovely lady at Dreamspinner Press really enjoyed Tim and Noel’s story and asked me if I would think about turning it into a series. It was then I came up with the idea of turning it into a series and having a new couple’s story release every year around the holidays.

Blurb:  Jason Walker is a child star turned teen heartthrob turned reluctant B-movie regular who’s sick of his failing career. So he gives up Hollywood for northern Idaho, far away from the press, the drama of LA, and the best friend he’s secretly been in love with for years.

There’s only one problem with his new life: a strange young man only he can see is haunting his guesthouse. Except Benjamin Ward isn’t a ghost. He’s a man caught out of time, trapped since the Civil War in a magical prison where he can only watch the lives of those around him. He’s also sweet, funny, and cute as hell, with an affinity for cheesy ’80s TV shows. And he’s thrilled to finally have someone to talk to.

But Jason quickly discovers that spending all his time with a man nobody else can see or hear isn’t without its problems—especially when the tabloids find him again and make him front-page news. The local sheriff thinks he’s on drugs, and his best friend thinks he’s crazy. But Jason knows he hasn’t lost his mind. Too bad he can’t say the same thing about his heart.

Winter Oranges is one of Riptide’s 2015 charity titles. Continue reading Spotlight: Winter Oranges by Marie Sexton

Song of the Navigator: Blog Tour Q&A and Giveaway with Astrid Amara

song-of-the-navigatorQ&A:

I am ridiculously excited to have Astrid Amara here at It’s About The Book. I’ve been a fan of hers for a long time. As she’s got a new release, Song of the Navigator, I wanted to not only ask her some questions about that, but about things in general. Thanks for being here!

The first books of yours I read were A Policy of Lies and the stories in the Hell Cop anthologies. I had an image of your books in my head as being dark speculative fiction. Then people were talking about the Bellski books, and how Astrid Amara writes such great holiday stories. What is coming at us in Song of the Navigator? Will your characters have to stiffen their spines and admit they have strong feelings, or will they have to dodge an obsidian bladed ax?

Type: Sequel to “Helping Hand

Blurb: Lucas Wilder’s best friend is a traitor. First, Audrey moved back to their hick-infested hometown, Bluewater Bay, and now she’s marrying a local. His own brother, in fact. And as her man of honor, Lucas gets coerced into returning for an extended stay. Although, between his unfaithful ex-boyfriend and his artist’s block, going home isn’t the worst thing that could happen. Even if the best man is Gabriel Savage, Lucas’s first crush, first hookup, and first heartbreak.

The only reason Gabe hasn’t been waiting for Lucas to return to Bluewater Bay is because he never thought it’d happen. Not that it matters now that Lucas is back—Gabe’s still a logger who’s never been anywhere (Canada doesn’t count), and Lucas is now a famous sculptor who’s been everywhere twice. Plus, there’s that shared past.

When Audrey asks Lucas to make her wedding favors, the only place to set up a kiln is at Gabe’s tree farm. Soon, they pick up where they left off twelve years before, then blow past it, discovering why neither of them forgot the other. Now they have to choose how much of their history they’ll repeat, and what future they’ll make together.

Guest Post and Giveaway: Black Dog Blues by Rhys Ford Blog Tour

BlackDogBlues_banner_DSPP

A few years ago, I wrote an urban fantasy called Black Dog Blues. When the book simmered and boiled in my brain, there were a few things I wanted to have in this book: An elf who was unapologetically bisexual and raised human, blood, gore, guns and monsters.I’d released it into the wilds of self-pubbing—mostly because there wasn’t a place for him then— and Kai did pretty well.Then, one day at a yarn store, Elizabeth North of Dreamspinner Press fame, started talking about a new venture they were trying out—DSP Publications, DSP’s boutique genre imprint. Long story short, Elizabeth asked if I’d submit Black Dog Blues, I did and now, here we are—with Kai making
his way into the mainstream.
