Cover Reveal – Riding the Curve

RidingTheCurveMorning folks! Remember I was talking about how excited I was for my first cover? Well, here it is. Isn’t it the most yummy thing you’ve ever had eyes on? *squee*

Ahem, okay. That was really immature, but this will be my first release. I will be doing a free short to get some people interested in my way. Look for that to be available by the end of the month.

Riding the Curve is part of a short erotica series Shar is doing with Remmy Duchene.

 

CatcherRemmy’s release, Catcher will be first on August 20th. It is MM so for those of you who love some hot men together, it is the book for you. Here’s the unofficial blurb:

After leaving Taggart City, Kade Quest never thought he’d return. His baseball career took off and life is good. When a collision at home plate lands him on the disabled list followed by a demotion to Triple A baseball until he was strong enough to return to the Crimsons, Kade sees this as a sign–to face up to the feelings he has for Lance Andrews and do something about them.

Lance Andrews is a simple man. He loves a cold beer and a great game of baseball on a Saturday afternoon. When his old crush, Kade Quest, comes back to town, Lance isn’t prepared for anything to happen between them. But what’s a guy to do when Kade gives him an offer he should refuse but can’t?

That sounds really hot, right? I’m looking forward to reading it. We aren’t sure when Riding the Curve will be out. Probably in mid September. It will be my first official book. Hey, I’ve been waiting three years to do a book.

*Shar grimaces*

Okay, really, sorry Shar. I know its tough to have 4 demanding muses, so I forgive you.

First Openly Gay Player – Michael Sam

MichaelSamPerhaps you didn’t know anything about the NFL, the St. Louis Rams, or about Michael Sam but after Saturday night, unless you were living under a rock, you do now.

Michael Sam is the first openly gay athlete to be drafted by the NFL. It was big news across the globe, with the young man being congratulated by the likes of NFL greats, peers, and even President Obama.

In early February, Michael announced to the world he was gay after finishing his senior year at University of Missouri. It came as a shock to many with people saying how courageous he was. Others said he hurt his draft stock by coming out right before the NFL combine. (College players trying out for NFL teams)

Regardless of the stance from the majority, seemingly the biggest issue was something complete asinine: how would other NFL players feel about showering with a gay man.

Not, how he would fare against talent bigger or stronger than him, not how many teams might pass him over because he’s undersized but instead, how players would react to having him in the shower or the locker room.

Once again, people show their ignorance with comments regarding his character and behavior because he is gay. As if he’d be some kind of animal trying to go after NFL players and make them all gay like him. Or worse yet, he’d try to do things to them in the shower.

Unreal.
Despite all this, Sam was able to get through the combine and get drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the seventh round over the weekend. ESPN showed his emotional reaction as well as the celebratory kisses he shared with his boyfriend Vito. Again, the stupidity came from many who said ESPN shouldn’t have shown it or how gross it was to see two men kissing on national TV but kudos to ESPN for not discriminating against Sam or his man, enjoying the news with his loved ones.

To me, Michael Sam is not only a hero in the gay community but also in the black community. He stood up for himself and didn’t hide from anyone despite the adversity. In my opinion he can be a positive example for all gay youths to follow your dreams and don’t allow the naysayers to get you down.

Sam’s test isn’t over though. He still has to make the Rams team but regardless of what happens, he will always be known as the first openly gay player to be drafted in American major league sports.
