Updated: Random.org chose Urbanista’s entry as the winner! Thanks to everyone who commented!
This weekend, I’m participating in the Backlist Blog Hop! (Which I keep trying to type as the “blacklist” blog hop – no, brain, that’s something very different.) Which might seem silly for someone who only has two books out so far, but I haven’t had a chance to give Hainted some love for a while.
Hainted was my first venture into the world of writing m/m romance outside of fanfic. It was something I’d thought about for quite a while, but not in a serious way. Oddly enough, I’d had the basic components of the book in my head for almost a decade by that point: the southern setting, Dan raising his two siblings after their parents died, the gothy city boy/love interest showing up to ask for help. But none of it had ever gelled for me.
Then one day in the summer of 2011 a very random-seeming though popped into my head: “Oh! The two guys in question are neo-shamans who have to lay the violent dead!” Keep in mind I hadn’t even thought about this story for years, at least not consciously. Within a half hour, I had five pages of notes. After that, I never looked back.
So to celebrate my very small backlist and show my first book some love, I’m giving away a copy of Hainted to one random commenter. Or, if you already have the book, I’ll instead send you a copy of the not-yet-released Hunter of Demons. You must be over 18 to win, and you must also leave your email address in the comment so I know how to get in touch with you.
