A Casual Dinner #MFRWAuthor #MFRWHooks

GenreErotic Romance (BDSM, m/m, m/f/f menage)

Length: 10,000 Words

Heat Level: Nuclear Blast (5 Flames)


Candi knew hot things happened behind closed doors at the Pearl Beach Resort. After all, the place was owned by bisexual billionaire playboy Boris van Donk, who had a reputation for taking on all comers. 

Candi's family of origin was strictly religious, and she has never given or received more than a chaste kiss in her 21 years. Between bad-boy Boris and her geeky, fun-loving, porn-writing housemates, an awakening of her desires is inevitable. 


I shared an entire chapter, The Big Reveal, during the October 2022 Steam hop. You can read that post here.


You can read the previous (spicy) snippet in this series here.


I normally share excerpts from this story with the Steam hop because, let's face it, there is no shortage of steamy material here. However, I have a reason for wanting to share with the Book Hooks hop too. Read more about that after the snippet.

Just a tease. This is a novelette, I don't want to give it all away!

“I’m sorry, Parsley,” Candi said, kissing her friend’s cheek. “You don’t have to talk about it.”

“It’s okay, I want to. Let’s order dinner first, though. My stomach is starting to sound like a stranded whale dying on the beach. If it keeps making these noises, Greenpeace is gonna be landing at any minute to throw me into the ocean!”

The trio walked to The Caribbean Lounge, a quaint seafood shack where the décor looked like it hadn’t been updated since the 1940s. They ordered an inexpensive bottle of chilled white wine and an Oceans Bounty Platter to share. The house special was resplendent with samplings of whatever seafood was currently the most plentiful, and it changed daily. It was accompanied by fries and a cup of the soup of the day.


Before we get to the buy links, I wanted to share this special opportunity with my fellow authors of gay or bisexual romance. All heat levels are accepted. Many thanks to Kayelle Allen for sharing the information about this opportunity.

Here's a link to a one-day promo event that has an enormous reach potential. Queer Your Bookshelf (QYB) invites authors of gay romance to take part in this Sept 4, 2023 Labor Day weekend promo. No cost to join, other than to promote the event. Will be hundreds of authors, so this is a good chance to be seen. Pricing for that day must be no greater than 99c, so plan ahead. Read more details on the form itself. Recommended - join the QYB Facebook group (link in the form). A copy of your submission will be sent to you.

This link leads to a short Google form to fill out. https://bit.ly/45gCkws


Deadline to Submit

The deadline to submit a book is Sunday, August 20th.

What counts as "queer"?

You, as the author, decides whether your book is queer. If you feel comfortable describing your book as queer, then it counts.

Pairings Question

If the characters in your book don't fall within the listed gender pairings, please use the "Other" field to indicate their gender identities. Whatever you put in the field will be copied directly onto the website.

$0.99 Pricing in All Markets

Books should be on sale in all countries as we're targeting authors and readers everywhere. Books should be $0.99 USD or equivalent in the sense of "lowest price point above free". For Canada, I would price at $0.99 CAD rather than whatever the exchange rate works out to be.

International Pricing

This promotion is intended to be international since we have authors and readers outside the US & UK. You can use Kindle Countdown for the US & UK, but please also manually adjust prices for all markets a few days before the promo.

If you have questions, please visit Hudson Lin's website.

I built the official page using Pagimate. You can check them out here. 

I tried to build author pages in the past but always ended up frustrated. With Pagimate, it's easy and even fun. It's also affordable. I purchased a lifetime membership for £179 ($202 USD). 

Use code CARA20 if you decide to create your own page with Pagimate.

Post a Comment

I try to get comments published as quickly as possible. I have ADHD and anxiety and sometimes I need to work myself up to be able to respond to comments. I don't always reply to comments on my blog, but I do try to visit as many people as possible when I participate in blog hops. I share your work on the monthly Roost Recommendations posts at ornerybookemporium.blogspot.com so others can discover your work. I do read and appreciate your comments.
Sorry, the Captcha is back and this time it's staying. I was inundated with spam comments when I turned it off. I wish butt rash on all the spammers out there.
