Will Devon and Caiden discover that their new love is a wrap after the filming ends?


Weddings, champagne, and slow dancing. It’s a lethal combination and one that has led film student Devon Maxwell into one awkward predicament. Brought in at the last minute to help his friends Isamu and Brian during their Bryant Park wedding, Devon was not prepared for Caiden Dell to sweep into his life. The spark of attraction between him and the hip film executive was instantaneous. That spark led them right into Caiden’s big bed for a night of pleasure that Devon will never be able to duplicate no matter how many takes life gives him.


To make things even more complicated, Caiden offers the recently vacated job of office intern to him. He’d be a fool to turn down an offer to work at Budgie in the Dell, the hottest LGBT film production company in the Big Apple. Looks as if Devon’s hopes of working in film are about to come true. He’s ready for days filled with tiring shoots, long hours, and irate actors. He just never dreamed his nights would overflow with passion, laughter, and whispers shared with a gorgeous, older lover.

The Otto Digmore Series

 

The Otto Digmore Difference
The Otto Digmore Series Book 1
by Brent Hartinger
Genre: New Adult Humorous M/M Romance
“Road trip!”
Otto Digmore is a 26-year-old gay guy with dreams of being a successful actor, and he’s finally getting some attention as a result of his supporting role on a struggling sitcom. But he’s also a burn survivor with scars on half his face, and all indications are that he’s just too different to ever find real Hollywood success.
Now he’s up for an amazing new role that could change everything. Problem is, he and his best friend Russel Middlebrook have to drive all the way across the country in order to get to the audition on time.
It’s hard to say which is worse: the fact that so many things go wrong, or that Russel, an aspiring screenwriter, keeps comparing their experiences to some kind of road trip movie.
There’s also the fact that Otto and Russel were once boyfriends, and Otto is starting to realize that he might still have romantic feelings for his best friend.
Just how far will Otto go to get the role, and maybe the guy, of his dreams?
Author Brent Hartinger first introduced the character of Otto Digmore in 2005, in his Lambda Award-winning books about Russel Middlebrook. Back then, Otto was something pretty unusual for YA literature: a disabled gay character.
Now, more than a decade later, Otto is grown up and finally stepping into the spotlight on his own. The Otto Digmore Difference, the first book in a new stand-alone series for adults, is about much more than the challenges of being “different.” It’s also about the unexpected nature of all of life’s journeys, and the heavy price that must be paid for Hollywood fame.
But more than anything, it’s a different kind of love story, about the frustrating and fantastic power of the love between two friends.
The Otto Digmore Decision
The Otto Digmore Series Book 2
“If we get caught, they’ll throw us in jail. On the other hand, we’ll have been involved in one of the craziest Hollywood stories I’ve ever heard, and maybe someone will want to turn *that* into a movie!”
Otto Digmore is back, still trying to make it as an actor in Hollywood (despite his facial scars), but frustrated by all the schemers who’ll stab you in the back to get ahead. But then Otto’s good friend Russel Middlebrook sells a screenplay, a heist movie set in the Middle Ages — and Otto has been cast in an important supporting role! For twelve weeks, Otto and Russel will be on location together in England and Malta.
Problem is, once production is underway, it quickly becomes clear that the director is ruining Russel’s script. If the movie ends up being the bomb that both Otto and Russel expect it to be, it could destroy both their Hollywood careers forever.
But Otto and Russel aren’t willing to take that chance. Together, they hatch a crazy plan to make a good movie behind the director’s back! But how far are they willing to go to save their careers? Are they willing to become exactly the kind of scheming backstabbers they always said they hated?
The Otto Digmore Decision is partly a caper story, partly a humorous Hollywood satire. It’s also an inside look at the struggles of anyone “different,” and it’s even something of a love story, except it’s one between two friends.
More than anything, The Otto Digmore Decision proves the old adage about creative pursuits: the most interesting drama always happens behind the scenes!
I am Brent Hartinger, a novelist and screenwriter. I’ve published fourteen novels, had nine screenplays optioned, and had two of my projects turned into feature films.
My first novel, GEOGRAPHY CLUB (2003), is the story of a gay teen named Russel Middlebrook. It was one of the first in a new wave of break-out LGBTQ young adult fiction, and it was adapted as a feature film in 2013. I subsequently wrote three more books about Russel, calling them The Russel Middlebrook Series. I tried to give these books a lot of humor and heart.
In 2013, I continued Russel’s story as he grew up, into his twenties, in a new, stand-alone series called Russel Middlebook: The Futon Years. These books are “new adult” (making Russel one of very few literary characters to “jump” genres in projects created by the same author).
In 2017, I released a new, stand-alone series starring Russel’s gay disabled friend Otto Digmore, called The Otto Digmore Series.
I love mysteries and thrillers. My 2016 gay teen puzzle box thriller THREE TRUTHS AND A LIE was nominated for an Edgar Award (this, and my 2005 novel GRAND & HUMBLE, are real mind-benders, trust me). My 2007 YA mystery, PROJECT PAY DAY, is much lighter, and has also been adapted as feature film (which I wrote), to be released in 2020.
Here are all my books:
THE OTTO DIGMORE SERIES
* The Otto Digmore Difference (book 1)
* The Otto Digmore Decision (book 2)
RUSSEL MIDDLEBROOK: THE FUTON YEARS
* The Thing I Didn’t Know I Didn’t Know (book #1)
* Barefoot in the City of Broken Dreams (book #2)
* The Road to Amazing (book #3)
THE RUSSE MIDDLE BROOK SERIES
* Geography Club (book #1)
* The Order of the Poison Oak (book #2)
* Double Feature: Attack of the Soul-Sucking Brain Zombies/Bride of the Soul-Sucking Brain Zombies (book #3)
* The Elephant of Surprise (book #4)
* Two Thousand Pounds Per Square Inch (a free short story)
MY OTHER BOOKS
* Project Pay Day
* Three Truths and a Lie
* Grand & Humble
* Shadow Walkers
I also love to travel. In fact, I no longer have a home. Instead, I travel the world indefinitely with my husband, writer Michael Jensen, moving to a new country every few months. You can follow our “digital nomad” journey at BrentandMichaelAreGoingPlaces.com
I try hard to write books that are page-turners, and movies that are fast-paced and accessible. If I had to describe my own writing projects, I would say, “Strong central concept, strong plot, strong character and voice.”
Basically, I see myself as a storyteller. But I think “story” is a lot more than “beautiful language” or complicated camera angles, which I often find self-indulgent and distracting. In most cases, I think the important thing for a writer or filmmaker is to get out of the way and just tell the damn story.
I answer all questions, so feel free to contact me on social media, or through my website: BrentHartinger.com
Cheers!

Dirty Brilliance
by Lea Bronsen
Genre: Billionaire M/M Romance
Kace Karrington is a wealthy, self-made investor with no qualms about steamrolling others to achieve his goals.

Award-winning author Lea Bronsen likes her reads hot, fast, and edgy, and strives to give her own stories the same intensity. After a deep dive on the unforgiving world of gangsters with her debut novel Wild Hearted, she divides her writing time between romantic suspenses, dark erotic romances, and crime thrillers.
She’s signed with Evernight Publishing, Decadent Publishing, and Insatiable Press. She has also self-published half of her works and participated in the making of several anthologies.

Twelve Rock Bands were invited to participate in this year’s Battle of the
Bands. It’s being held at Cambria Bay, a resort town that brings in
tourism by having over the top events. Daryl Keeley, drummer for the
wild metal band, Lythium Madness, is excited not only for the
competition but for the opportunity to stay at one of the world’s
best vacation spots for the holiday. It’s Christmas, but there won’t
be any snow in tropical Cambria Bay, and that’s fine with Daryl,
since every other aspect of his life is too cold. No lover. A family
that disowned him for being a rock drummer rather than his sexuality.
His bandmates are his only real home.
During the competition
he meets Micah Bray, a bassist from another band, Jungle Lake Riot.
They’re not very good, but Micah pulls them up with his unusual
talent. He’s a quiet force to be reckoned with, and when he plays
with Daryl…sparks fly.
Lynn Michaels lives and writes in Tampa, Florida where the sun is hot and
the Sangria is cold. When she’s not writing she’s kayaking,

ending and the dynamics of male characters can be intriguing,
vulnerable, and exciting. She has both contemporary and paranormal
titles and has been writing since 2014. Her stories don’t follow
any set guidelines or ideas, but come from her heart and contain love
in many forms.

The Twelve Days of Christmas ~ Bells and Whistles

Bells and Whistles
The Twelve Days of Christmas #8
by Liza Kay
Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance
Print Length: 68 Pages
Publisher: eXtasy Books
Publication Date: December 13, 2019
Two men, a smart little girl, and a pet cow…
Ballet dancer Jamie has never fit in with his loud and brash blue-collar
family. They grudgingly accepted him being gay, but when Jamie’s
father finds him wearing one of his sister’s dresses, Jamie ends on
his best friend’s sofa. An ad for a female live-in nanny position
in rural Kansas seems like a Christmas gift from above and a solution
to his homelessness. Never mind that Jamie knows nothing about farm
life. Or cows. Or kids. At least he knows how to rock a dress.

Ben Franklin—yes, his parents are crazy like that—is a dairy farmer
in desperate need of female assistance. At least that were his
mother’s last words before she left for Florida with her new
husband. All Ben knows is raising cattle. Now he’s tasked with
raising his niece Charlie as well. The last thing Ben expected when
he placed an ad for a nanny was to develop confusing feelings for the
beautiful Janie.
With a little Christmas magic, the help
of a pet cow, and a mischievous little girl, two men might find the
true meaning of home, family, and love.
Liza grew up in a tiny village in Germany, the kind where you know
everybody and everybody knows you. She migrated to a bigger town to
attend college, although her parents often wonder if she really moved
out. Now, with a degree in her pocket, she’s perfectly capable of
working as a librarian. Never one to do what’s expected of her, Liza
currently browses different branches of employment.

She started writing in college when she found herself unable to ignore
the guys living in her head any longer. And to distract herself from
the stifling, non-fiction stuff taught in class. Liza is really fond
of the dudes whispering in her mind—no matter if handsome or
flawed, big or small, sulky or easy-going. They all deserve love and
their HEAs.
When she’s not writing, you can find her curled up with a good book and a
cup of tea, a cat in her lap, or a camera at the ready.
