Torquere Charity Sips, including Training Cats, are out!

In 2008, Torquere Press’ fantastic authors decided to support a charity with an annual short story collection called our Charity Sip blitz. In the past three years, we’ve donated more than $13,000.00 to charitable organizations that support GLBT causes.

For 2011, Torquere’s authors have chosen the theme “Getting Better” in honor of the It Gets Better project, which helps LGBT youth understand that life as an openly queer adult is not only possible, but happening for millions of people, worldwide. More than thirty authors have written short fiction pieces and have agreed to donate all proceeds of the sales of these stories to this year’s charitable organization. Torquere Press Inc. will match the authors’ donations completely.

This year, we’re also pleased to announce that our distribution partner, Rainbow eBooks, has agreed to be the title sponsor of our Sip collection, and will be our sole distributor outside of the Torquere Books website. Please support our sponsor by visiting them at www.rainbowebooks.com

Special thanks to J. Rocci for all of the enthusiasm and hard work on the Getting Better project.

Torquere Press and our authors truly believe we can make a difference by donating to organizations that promote awareness and equality. If you’d like to help, please support the Charity Sip Blitz and enjoy some great romance today!

TRAINING CATS:

The gloss is off Brent’s relationship with Tyler; the real man is showing through and his inside does not match the outside.  Brent’s got a better chance of teaching a cat to sit and stay than of convincing handsome, glamorous Tyler to be thoughtful, and it’s time to stop trying.

No longer distracted by appearances, a newly single Brent is finally ready to notice the considerate, steadfast man who’s been part of the background too long.

Training Cats is part of the On Call world: Keith and Dante turn up to offer opinions and a little help.

Part of the Torquere Charity Sips line, all author’s proceeds from this story go to benefit the “It Gets Better” Project, designed to help teens see that life does improve for GLBT persons who may be experiencing a very rocky youth.

All the stories, from thirty-plus great authors, including Eden Winters, Syd McGinley, Sean Michael, and J. Rocci, can be had in a package through Torquere or through Rainbow eBooks, or can be purchased individually.

Prep Work is Coming Out Tomorrow!

Talk about new release jitters! Prep Work goes live tomorrow — it’s my first story out with Dreamspinner, so there are all sorts of things to do.

Check out an interview with Tommy on Leontine’s Book Realm, and if you haven’t been over to Stumbling Over Chaos to enter the giveaway, you are running out of time — the entry period ends tonight!

There’s something I should be doing….  Updating a blog page, maybe?

“Fall Down” coming!

The clock is ticking on my third Mountain novel — Fall Down the Mountain will be coming out on Wednesday, June 23, from Torquere!  Mark will be getting his day in the sun at last. He’d been left rather in the lurch in both “Snow” and “Mistletoe” and it’s time to let him have a chance.

This skiing novel should both cool you down and heat you up.  Allan, a new character in the Mountain environment, has reason to notice Mark, a tall, lean ski patrol who’s big on responsibility but sometimes short on a sense of proportion.  Jake and Kurt, whom you’ll remember from “Fire” and “Snow,” appear again; they’re Mark’s friends. Jorey Taylor turns up again, too — maybe he needs his own story.

More info and links as they come active!
