Hmm, celebrating St. Patrick. About that…

St. Patrick’s Day is a bit of an odd holiday for me.  People who aren’t Irish any other time of the year show up wearing green and brandishing plans to get drunk. Suddenly everyone is celebrating Irish heritage by drinking green beer, something I don’t think any good Irish man ever intended to be drunk.  Or to get drunk on.

Now, I am of Irish heritage. My grandmother’s family emigrated from Ireland early last century and were all promptly wiped out by the Influenza epidemic, leaving only her and a brother living. She was raised by nuns, the brother was raised to become a priest, which he did. It’s a cheerful thing, having Irish heritage.  As a family, we usually celebrated by making corn beef and cabbage with potatoes. I’ve always loved corned beef and cabbage.

So, let’s get down to the problem here. I’m Wiccan. St. Patrick is known for driving the Pagans out of Ireland and converting the place to Christianity.  Not generally something Wiccans tend to celebrate.  No, I won’t be going out to drink green beer, though I wouldn’t turn down an offer of Guinness.  Since St. Patrick’s day falls on a Saturday, I’m spending at least part of it working on the garden, which is a green thing.  I may make corn beef and cabbage, which is a yummy thing.

Oh, and I’ll be taking part in this blog hop and giving away a book! Which is a fun thing.

For this one, I’m giving away my newest gay erotica release – Demon Bait.  A story of demons, ghosts and true love set in St. Augustine, Florida.  To enter, just leave a comment below letting me know that gay erotica is something you want to read.  And tell me – do you believe in ghosts?


St. Augustine, Florida, is known for its ghosts and Lorenzo is one of them. He’s spent more than a century as a resident of Tolomato Cemetery. But he isn’t able to rest easy in his grave since Lucifer insists on resurrecting him regularly to offer him a job. While he can’t escape being condemned to Hell himself, Lorenzo refuses to help send others there. Lucifer is irked when Lorenzo refuses him once again and turns to Tribal, an oversexed demon who has solved these types of problems before. Tribal has a solution to his Master’s problem. He plans to tempt Lorenzo with the one thing the passionate Spaniard can’t resist–a lover.

Who better to catch a ghost than a ghost hunter? Tribal baits his trap with Tom, a hunky and lonely ghost hunter. When Lorenzo refuses to give into Tribal’s plan, the demon resorts to a dangerous trap that puts Tom’s soul in danger, and Lorenzo must defy Hell itself to save him.


M/M sex, including submission and spanking.

Available at All Romance eBooks (should be at Amazon next week)

Check out all the authors on the blog hop! 


Winner of Demon Bait was Stacey Clifford.  Also Andrea, who has never read M/M but wants to give it a try has been sent a copy of Lair of the Jaguar God, which is a bit of a softer M/M read.

  • I used to be kind of apprehensive about gay erotica, until I read one…more please :D

    Thanks for the chance to win, I look forward to reading your book!


  • I would love to read this. I never believed in ghosts until I lived in a apartment that was haunted. It was so bad, it scared my elderly neighbor. She had her son, who was over 6′, 250 pounds of just released, convicted felon stay with her. One time he knocked on my door, white as a sheet, told me the place scared the **it out of him and that he was moving his mother out. I moved shortly after that. It was dreadful.

  • LOVE gay erotica.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  • I read anything and everything!

    Happy St Patty’s Day!

    Oh and to answer your question…I do believe in ghosts

    Thank you!!

  • I also read anything and everything. I would have to say no I don’t believe in ghost, because I have never seen one. But I guess you should never say never.

  • Love a good m/m! thanks for participating in the hop!

  • Thanks for the giveaway! I do believe in ghosts yes, but in pretty mundane ways – unfortunately not in action… I have read some gay erotica but not much yet.

  • I saw St. Patrick’s day described as “the worst case of Stockholm Syndrome ever”. Pretty much sums it up!

    I’d love to read this book, of course. But since I’m part of the hop, I will totally understand if you DQ my entry. I just had to say hi because I loved your post. :D

  • Happy St. Paddy’s Day!

  • I enjoy reading gay erotica. And though I don’t think I’ve seen a ghost personally I do believe they exist.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  • Thanks for being on the blog hop!

  • Hi,
    I like the cover of Demon Bait – there is something very peaceful, I would even say angelic there :) I would definitely like to read it (m/m romances are the only ones I read now). I don’t believe in ghosts, but fantasy stories can touch me like no other, realistic story.

  • Hmm sounds like you have a very interesting story. :-)

  • Sigh… I’m being trigger happy.


  • I’m definitely up for gay erotica! As for ghosts, I don’t believe in them, but I sure don’t mind reading about them. :)


  • Never read a story with ghosts. I would give it a try!! I am always up for something new!

  • Thank you so much for participating in this hop and for the giveaway chance!

  • Gay erotica is something i like to read! ;D Thanks! And yup! I definitely believe in ghosts! Thanks for sharing and for the giveaway! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

  • Yes I enjoy reading it and do believe in ghosts.

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day! May the rainbow lead to your success!

  • I like that even non Irish people still celebrate the holiday. Luck is always a wonderful thing to have in our lives. Cambonified(at)yahoo(dot)com

  • I do enjoy a good m/m erotica story! I don’t know that I believe in ghosts, but I don’t NOT believe in them either, if that makes sense. Have a great day celebrating in your way!

  • Gay erotica is absolutely something I want to read! And write. I’m so glad to see a fellow m/m author here! Since I found you, are you interested in signing up for the Hop Against Homophobia? Almost 170 m/m authors, reviewers and publishers signed up :) We use “m/m” because a lot of people think also f/f when they hear “gay” – I don’t know why.

    Do I believe in ghosts? Absolutely. As an Icelanders, there’s very little chance I don’t. We’re fed the stories since birth and a lot of us are sensitive to the hidden realm ;) In all seriousness, though, I do believe in them.

  • I’ve read a lot of m/m erotica and I loved them, and I am constantly getting more :)


  • I’ve never read any m/m erotica, but am interested in it.


  • Interesting book! And funnily enough, my latest book “Dying Days 2″ is also set in St. Augustine – but its about zombies, lol…

  • I loved m/m erotica stories. And i believe in ghosts but i never had an encounter.

  • Oh, I believe, most definitely!


  • I do believe in ghosts. I have family members who have passed away but not passed on. They seem to be there when you need them most for comfort or moral support by either a feeling or a smell. Thanks for the giveaway! I do read m/m romances. It’s more about the relationship and story then the gender of the couple.

  • I thoroughly enjoy reading m/m erotica!

  • Can’t say I’ve read any M/M Erotica but I’m open to anything. Happy St Patrick’s Day!

  • Love M/M. And I hope ghost exists but until I see one or experience something ghostly I’m going to say no I don’t believe. Thanks for the giveaway!
