When a young man’s wishes impact his partner’s plans, he must think creatively to find a compromise.


Devon Gateman has been in a partnership with his much younger lover, Jake Lewis, for almost three years. Christmas is approaching, and he wants to make it special. He brings home a live goose, intending to prepare an uber special Christmas Eve supper. Using a little spicy persuasion, Devon convinces his lover to accept the animal…for a few days, anyway.

At first, Jake is flattered that Devon brought home a goose. He knows his man has the best of intentions. Unfortunately, caring for the animal for a week falls on him. During that time, Jake actually comes to care for the honking, ankle-biting, guard-goose-terrier of a bird.

Then events happen that make Jake realize he can’t break the trust of his weird new friend. Can he come up with an alternative for dinner that will be just as special?

Faith Through Falling Snow Book Tour

Contemporary Romance
Date Published: 11/5/19
Publisher: 5 PRINCE PUBLISHING

With Laci and Mitch anxiously awaiting the arrival of a new baby, they are surrounded by the turmoil of discovering Mama's illness while their two sons fight over the love of a woman.



A white Christmas brings a moment of joy, but Laci’s faith is tested again when their baby clings to life.

Together the Young family must lean on each other and the only One who can truly give them strength.

Will they find the faith they need…even though the snow?


Excerpts: (Long)

1. The fall season hadn’t fully made its way to North Carolina

yet, but Laci was already looking forward to the thought of
winter and the hope of falling snow. Her love of the rain, even
in frozen form, hadn’t wavered. She loved the snow; watching it
fall to the ground with grace and elegance and marveled at the
thick blanket of white; so quiet that it absorbed even the
smallest of sounds or the loudest of thoughts. After her breast
cancer, a miscarriage, and almost losing Hannah, her new
sister-in-law, Laci’s faith had been tested over, and over again.
Through it all, she and Mitch had weathered every storm
together. It made them stronger in many ways, and although
hard to imagine, even more in love than the day they married.
Laci couldn’t imagine her life without him by her side. He was
the love of her life and her best friend, the one that carried her
when she couldn’t carry herself. He reminded her, daily, that
God brought them together, and together they would face life
head-on, loving and laughing all the way; even through the blizzard
that was headed directly toward them.


2. MAGGIE and her Ladies Auxiliary friends took turns sharing
stories and laughing together around the dinner table at Max’s

Place, their favorite restaurant in town. Maggie yawned,
suddenly quite tired, and decided to leave a little early.
“Hey ladies, I think I’m going to head home if you don’t
mind.” She stated.
“You feel okay, Margaret?” Gladys asked, one of her dear
friends.
“I’m starting to feel my age, I guess. Kind of tired tonight.”
“Well, be careful driving home,” Gladys replied.
“I will. I’m so sorry about my blunder earlier tonight.”
“It’s okay! It happens to the best of us, Mags!” Another friend
replied.
Maggie stood up from the table, grabbed her purse and
started to walk away, but stopped and turned around. “By the
way Janet, please tell Leo I said hello, okay?” And she walked
away.
Gladys and the ladies all looked at one another with a
puzzled look on their faces, bewildered by her comment.
“Gladys, Janet hasn’t been at this table in over ten years. And
who is Leo?” One of the ladies asked the group.
“Leo was Janet’s first husband, over twenty years ago.”
Gladys replied. Most of the ladies wouldn’t have known that,
except for her and Maggie since they were in the original group.
At that point, Gladys was now quite worried about Maggie’s
state of mind.
“I’m sure she was just tired and a little confused. It happens
more and more at our age, unfortunately.” Helen added, then
changed the topic.
The ladies continued to banter on about this and that after
Maggie left, enjoying their dessert, but after a while Gladys
couldn’t ignore the gnawing feeling in the pit of her stomach
that something wasn’t right.
“I’m going to step outside and make sure Maggie made it to
her car, ladies. I’ll be right back.” Gladys announced. Once
outside, she looked down both streets to ensure Maggie had left.
As she feared however, she spotted Maggie’s car parked on the
adjacent street. She walked over to the car and put her hand on
the hood. Cold. She had never made it to the car, and Maggie
was nowhere in sight.


3. At first, she thought she was just seeing
things. Another appeared, and then another. Laci looked up and

smiled, then closed her eyes and tilted her head back so she
could catch them in her mouth as they fell. She felt like a little
kid and wanted to spin around but knew her body wasn’t really
up for that. The flakes grew larger, falling faster and faster and
her face was now wet from the melted snow. When she opened
her eyes however, the few soft snowflakes had turned into flurries,
a veritable snowstorm in a few short minutes. She gasped
with delight. “Let it snow!” She yelled with joy, holding out her
hands and walking around in circles. It reminded her of a day,
not long ago, when she had danced in the rain and asked God to
heal her cancer.
“It’s snowing!” Travis yelled, running to the window. “Can I
go outside with mom?” He asked.
Mitch raised his eyebrow. “What are you talking abou—?”
Mitch turned to the window and saw Laci standing in the snow.
“What in the world is that woman doing?”
Immediately, he tore out the back door.
“Laci Jean!” He shouted as he ran down the deck stairs
toward her.
“It’s snowing, Mitch! It’s really snowing!” She shouted with
excitement and turned toward him, but as she did her foot
slipped on the snow-covered grass. Her legs gave way.
“LACI!”


Excerpts: (Short)
1.  Laci’s faith had only grown stronger through all the trials that she and Mitch had faced in the past, and the one that lay ahead would be no different. Maggie’s episodes were growing worse, not better, and Laci felt a deep sense of sadness when she thought about her condition. She needed to tell Mitch the truth once and for all, but struggled with the promise she had made to Maggie. Still, it was getting harder and harder to hold it in.

2.  MAGGIE SHIVERED. Her legs ached and she felt as heavy as though sandbags were being dragged behind her as she walked down the dirt road, dazed and unaware of her surroundings. Then, as if woken from a deep sleep, she suddenly stopped, blinked several times, and started searching around for some‐ thing familiar. There was only darkness in every direction. 

3.  The road was damp. To her right, trees. To her left, trees. Her heartbeat sped up as she peered down the dirt path in front SANDY SINNETT 116 of her. No cars. No lights. Only a thick shroud of darkness surrounded her.

Question for the Author


#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career? – I would love to say yes, but as of yet, I’m not quite able to see that dream come to life. Until then, I’ll keep writing for fun.  


#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process? – The hardest part was carving out time in my life for writing as a single mom with a full-time job, but I did it. As far as the writing process itself, the hardest part was creating characters from thin air and not having any basis on someone I knew or had known personally. Creating pure fiction is much harder than I imagined at times.   


#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?  No


#4 – What is next for your writing?  Another novel, but no more series. The next novel is called, The Coffee Shop Diaries. A stand-alone book about a single mom who begins life again post-divorce while raising two teens and running a coffee shop and wine bar. All the horrible dates, family drama, and crazy antics from her coffee shop regulars that add to her journey until she bumps into the love of her life outside her own shop.


#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?
Yes; Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

A Calling Bird~ Day 4



A Calling Bird
The Twelve Days of Christmas #4
by Jo Tannah
Genre: M/M Paranormal Romance
Print Length: 78 pages
Publisher: eXtasy Books
Publication Date: December 6, 2019 


Would serenading be enough to convince a mate they were meant to be?
Cole Burns doesn’t suffer the cold or feeling the holiday spirit, but dreams of having a family by thirty, preferably with two or three children, are slowly fading into the fog of winter. It's a sad, sad situation he cannot seem to escape.


For John Michael Diamond, being CEO of Diamond Corporation equates to never finding the perfect mate to share his nest. In fact, it’s next to impossible. Through a twist of fate, he discovers his mate not only lives nearby but also on his family’s estate.

Cole never thought he’d fall for such a crazy, insanely gorgeous rich guy, and yet here he was, wrapped in shifter eagle who serenades him with love songs. This was going to be an interesting Christmas.





I grew up listening to folk tales my father and nannies told either to entertain us children or to send home a message. These narratives I kept with me and finally, I wrote them down in a journal way back when I kept one. Going through junk led to a long forgotten box and in it was the journal. Reading the stories of romance, science fiction and horror I had taken time to put to paper, brought to light that these were tales I never met in my readings.
The tales I write are fictional but all of them are based on what I grew up with and still dream about. That they have an M/M twist is simply for my pleasure. And I hope, yours as well.

A restaurant owner who can’t cook meets a chef who just happens to be a vampire. Can they each overcome their shameful past and find a recipe for redemption?
Doss Chambers always dreamed of owning a restaurant, but a car crash when he was seventeen put those plans on hold. He’s paid for his mistake, in legal terms, but the guilt he carries weighs heavily on his mind. Nevertheless, Doss is determined to fulfill his dream. He works hard at his family’s market to save whatever money he can and spends every spare minute learning the business of running a restaurant. If only he could cook…


Henri Courtan is the best pastry chef in Paris. Some say it’s an odd choice of profession for a vampire, but after years of self-imposed exile to atone for his violent past, Henri is finally happy to settle down and live his life in peace. When dark secrets come back to haunt him, however, he flees to New York. A progressive clan of vampires takes him in, and Henri suddenly finds himself charge of feeding dozens of vampires accustomed to eating human food. He’s glad to be cooking again, keeping busy, until a man arrives with a delivery. When Henri opens the door, he quickly realizes that his man might offer much more than groceries.

Neither man is sure of the other’s feelings until a shared culinary experience reveals a physical hunger that can no longer be ignored. The flames of passion are lit, but both men need to forgive themselves before they can share their hearts.





Kazy Reed grew up on a small island off the Maine coast. At the age of sixteen, she announced to her parents that she was going to move to Denmark for six months as an exchange student. That trip changed her life, and sparked her love of travel, languages, and art history.
