Talking with Debut Author Kris Jacen – BGFP episode 118

The blog tour for The Hockey Player’s Heart gets underway this week. Jeff and I will be doing Facebook Live segments on our author page starting Wednesday, January 10 and the tour starts on Friday, January 12 at Hearts on Fire.

We will also be attending the Los Angeles Times Book Festival, April 21 and 22. We’ll have much more details on what we’ll be doing there closer to the event.

Jeff reviews Shelter the Sea by Heidi Cullinan and read by Iggy Toma as well as Among the Living (PsyCop #1) by Jordan Castillo Price and read by Gomez Pugh. We also briefly talk about The Untold Tales of Armistead Maupin, which we watched on PBS this past week.

Editor turned author Kris Jacen talks about her debut book, Wait for Me, and what led her to become an author in her own right after working with writers for a decade as Editor in Chief of MLR Press. Her next book, “Explore with Me,” arrives February 9.

New Year, New Career

Happy 2018!

There were some great things that happened last year, but let’s face facts, I don’t think anyone is truly sad to see 2017, that perpetual shitstorm of a year, to finally go.

I’m genuinely optimistic about what the new year holds, due in no small part to the fact that I’ve finally achieved a life-long dream. A book, with my name on it, will be published on January 16th. To make it even better, my name appears alongside that of my husband/co-author, Jeff Adams. We’re both really proud of The Hockey Player’s Heart, our gay take on traditional category romance tropes, and can’t wait for everyone to read it!

Happy Holidays

Wishing you and yours the very best this holiday season!
