I haven't been on here in ages. But this is worthy of getting out there as much as possible!
So it's official, Chibi - my wifey - is now a published author! Her first story is a short gay romance novel and you can check it out at the links below! We also have a novel coming out together and she has another novel while I'll post about as soon as the website has it for sale.
Here's all the info on it!
So the gay romance story for Dreamspinner Press is "Press START to Play," also known as, "That one story I forgot to let my mom read." It's eBook only, but it looks like there are several different electronic formats for it. Keep in mind that this story is NOT WORKSAFE BY ANY MEANS as it involves geekery, gaming, and sexy times between men.
There are two ways to read the story:
1. Buy the individual story itself for $3. That's right, only $3 to get all of the wonderful video game references and romance that you want. The link is here: http://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=3939

Below is a small snippet from the short story!
Lukis takes the controller, watching as the game loads and the animated sequence begins. The graphics are impressive—he guesses. The art style is interesting and the
music is catchy. He’s surprised when he realizes he recognizes some of the characters—various superheroes from the huge movie releases over the summer. There’s Spider-Man, who seems to have recovered from losing his uncle and fighting the giant lizard. Then there’s the Avengers, a team of attractive superheroes run by an angry black guy in an eye patch. “They in a fightin’ game?”
“Yep. It’s a combination of heroes and video-game characters. Figured you’d at least know who some of these guys are. Everyone does.”
Lukis frowns. “Where’s Batman?”
“Batman’s not in this. He’s DC, this is Marvel.”
“But Batman is cool. You said heroes, he should be here.”
Aaron laughs. “I ain’t sayin’ he ain’t cool, I’m just lettin’ ya know that he ain’t in this game. Marvel and DC are two different comic book companies. You know, it’d be like if our home football team and the rival team were in a game.”
“They are. It’s called Madden.”
