Rain Carrington
 
Bio:
Carrington started writing when she was just a teenager in Trinidad, Colorado but didn’t start writing M/M romance until much later. Through the years many of her gay male friends told stories of heartache and the struggle to find “the one” so she told them stories, fantasies all about them and their future cowboy, fireman, biker or policeman. When she found a writing site that encouraged her to write them down she started what was an adventure like she never had before.
 
Her first story, Cabin fever, about a young man searching for love and finding it wrapped in a member of a mafia family gained her readers who cheered for more. She knew then that she had found her place in the world. To make stories of love and kink that not only her readers but she could get lost in as well.
 
Rain now lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado but has traveled most of the US. Her last road trip to San Francisco gave her characters still coming out…no pun intended…in her newer stories. Rain has severe scoliosis which makes it hard for her to do all the things she used to love but it did give her the time to write that she never had before. She fights for lgbt rights from her home as best she can now and keeps in close contact with her friends that fight on two good legs to point them where they should go. She is a fervent believer that one door never closes without another opening so there are no limits she can’t get past.
 
Of all the people in the world no one has encouraged and supported her like her friends, many of them writers themselves, and her family. There is never a dull moment in her home where laughter is in the air 24/7 and everyone knows to avoid the computer screen when she sits in front of it. They never know what kind of beautiful man love they may see. Rain calls it research, they call it, “there she goes again!”

Question 1
So, what have you written?
My new book, coming in April, is called Winter Burning. It’s based in the 70’s and ends in the early 80s and tells the story of two Native American men, and their journey of discovery. James SnowBringer has been sheltered by his fearful parents, but when he becomes a man, he learns harsh truths about this people. In need to know more, he calls about his lover, Wyman Crow, for help. Wyman shows introduces James to the many struggles of not only others of their race, but those who share their sexuality. Together they discover true courage and the warrior spirit inside of everyone.
Question 2
How many books to your series? (if it is a series)
It is a series. This is the first book, and I’ve started on the second, but I have no plans for how many there will be. Each story in this series will be a standalone.
Question 3
Do you think that giving books away free works and why?
I have seen it work some in the past, and not work. A lot of authors are fearful of pirating, so we are giving away less, but I get a lot of feedback that is very helpful and very much appreciated.
Question 4
How has your writing evolved since your first book?
Leaps and bounds! Learning as I go, that is a big one. We all wish we could go back and smack ourselves when we read our first novels, wishing we had known then what we know now! Having some of my first reedited now!
Question 5
Is there a certain type of scene that’s harder for you to write than any others? Love? Action? Romance? Tragedy?
The truly emotional ones for me are those that involve deaths of side characters that are important to the main characters. I live along with characters, so I feel the loss right along with them.
Question 6
What do you think makes your book stand out from the crowd?
This one is different, even for me. It’s socially conscious and tells the story of not only Native American issues, but gay issues as well. I think sometimes people forget the struggles of both in the past as well as the continuing hardships. I’m hoping to shed more of a light on these issues in the pages of a book centering on two men in love.

Bio:

I’m a writer and author of erotic fiction in my 40s. I discovered creative writing as an escape from the dullness of small town life at an early age. My journey as an author of erotic fiction began with a passion for writing erotic poetry and then spicy short stories.

Some of my other works of erotic fiction have been published under my Nom de plume, Tyrese Jordan.

She eventually joined a discrete online adult community where she met Eddie Simmons. The handsome lovable rogue introduced Dawn to kinky sexual pleasures that unleashed her hidden inner freak and ushered her into a kinky new beginning.

Whatever heat level you prefer, there’s something in this book that will please and leave you yearning some more…

Whatever heat level you prefer, there’s something in this book that will please and send you off to the land of soaking wet dreams.

LUSTFULLY YOURS

The Poetry of Don Abdul.

 

This is underground stuff

Like the finest vintage, there’s never quite enough

The masses have to dream about it

Cos the finest vintage is a special treat

For my Sexy Cougars and citizens of the zone

The finest people I’m proud to call my own

You’re the reason I write like I do

Yes you my dearest friends, both old and new

TODAY AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT

Noah Harris

Bio:

Noah Harris is a 28-year-old bisexual man currently single and living in a small apartment in New York.

Being a natural introvert with significant extrovert tendencies he expresses himself through the world of writing MM books, often with a darker, paranormal twist. His books are written from the heart of his deep, sensitive and mysterious, but playful and creative, wild spirit.

Noah is dedicated to giving something back to the universe, sharing generously in his successes and inspiring and motivating others through his writing and in any other way he can. He believes in living a natural, healthy lifestyle and has embraced meditation as a way of clearing the ‘noise’ in his head and allowing his dark creativity to shine through in his books.

He is determined to reach out to as many readers, who he considers his ‘friends’, as he can through his unique personal touch and through building like-minded communities online. It is this personal touch, with his readers, that sets him apart from most other authors today

Question 1

So, what have you written?

I have written both paranormal and contemporary.

Question 2

How many books to your series? (if it is a series)

Three (M/M Navy Seal Trilogy)

Question 3

Do you think that giving books away free works and why?

I think it works to an extent, I try to give free books in order to provide value to my fans but I don’t expect it to create a return.

Question 4

How has your writing evolved since your first book?

A whole LOT! Let’s just leave it at that, ha-ha.

Question 5

Is there a certain type of scene that’s harder for you to write than any others? Love? Action? Romance? Tragedy?

Tragedy doesn’t come natural to me though I consider myself to be very dramatic, I much rather write action.

Question 6

What do you think makes your book stand out from the crowd?

They’re written by a male author. Most of M/M writers out there are females which makes no sense to me. Doesn’t feel genuine. I pour my heart into every book.
