I got up to find a lovely review at Jessewave’s. It’s always nervewracking to put your work out for the world; feedback like this from a picky reader takes some of the indigestion away.
In part, Lloyd said: “…This is a terrific read and I hope you treat yourself by picking it up. It’s an intelligent, interesting, emotionally satisfying story with lovable characters. Even if you’re not crazy about cycling (or even yummy cyclists’ thighs in shiny lycra), let Spokes take you for a victory lap.”
Mmm, cyclists’ thighs–see what he means?
He gave it 4.5 stars, and I will be walking about 4.5 inches about the ground for the rest of the day. Read the rest of his review here, and you can get your own copy at Rocky Ridge Books, Amazon, Kobo, Barnes and Noble, and All Romance eBooks, as print and ebook (MOBI, EPUB, and PDF.)
Some far-sighted folks bought advance print copies of Spokes at GayRomLit. One of them turned out to be reviewer Lady McNeill of Mrs. Condit and Friends Read Books.
Lady McNeill is a distance cyclist /triathlete, so she knows whereof she speaks when it comes to the sport, and she’s a discerning reader when it comes to the relationship. I don’t say that just because she gave Spokes a 4 1/2 Sweet Pea rating (although you bet I appreciate it!)
Picky lady said, in part: “Overall, an excellent, well-crafted story that was a perfect blend of romance and cycling…a rare find!”
See the rest here, and you can pick up your copy at your favorite e-tailer (unless you prefer Apple, which is an ongoing struggle to get posted to. But soon.) Available from Rocky Ridge Books, Amazon, Kobo, Barnes and Noble, and All Romance eBooks, as print and ebook (MOBI, EPUB, and PDF.)

Money, It’s A Crime – Return to the Mountain by P.D. Singer
OMG, first review in for Return to the Mountain! Lisa at The Novel Approach enjoyed what she read, giving it five stars. See Pam’s eyes get wide!
In part, this is what she said:
Return to the Mountain is a story filled with truths about dishonesty and the damaging consequences of doing the wrong things for the right reasons. It’s not at all an exaggeration to say that I loved it, loved Seth’s simplicity and Gary’s eventual understanding that earning Seth’s respect was the only thing worth working for.
If you haven’t read any of the Mountain books or The Rare Event, for that matter, don’t let that stop you from picking this one up.
See the rest here, and go ahead and grab your own copy to see what Lisa’s talking about. Find it at Dreamspinner, Amazon, All Romance eBooks, Barnes and Noble, and other fine eTailers.
Pippa of Mrs. Condit and Friends has posted a glowing review of Blood on the Mountain!
I’m always a little terrified when a review starts out “I haven’t read the others…” but she concluded that not only did it not matter that she started here, she wanted the rest. Part of what she said:
I think you can probably gather I really enjoyed Blood on the Mountain. Read it for a cracking plot, and a wonderful couple that deserves their Happy Ever After.
See the rest here, and while you’re there, leave a comment, because we’re giving away an ebook to one of Mrs. Condit’s lucky visitors. It could be you!
I’m still hyperventilating over Jenre’s review of Blood on the Mountain! It’s always nail-biting time when a reviewer posts, but my manicure, such as it is, is safe this time.
Part of what she said:
Overall, this book was simply delightful. The mix of quiet moments and tense action scenes made this a real page turner and we learn so much more about Kurt’s past and see his feelings about being with a closeted lover. More than that though, this is a wonderful romance with very sympathetic characters, lots of tenderness but some great sex scenes too (the strip archery was a particular favourite). If you liked Fire on the Mountain then you are going to love this one too. I did and can highly recommend Blood on the Mountain.
See the rest at Jessewave’s. And pardon the happy dance!
Blood is available from Dreamspinner, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, All Romance eBooks, and other fine e-tailers.
