Books, books, books: Josh Lanyon Part I

Love is a Many-Colored Thing by Josh Lanyon (Author) and Johanna Ollila (Illustrator)

Oh.my.gosh! ❤ My book Love is a Many-Colored Thing by Johanna Ollila and Josh Lanyon arrived! ❤ It’s a coloring book for adult that I won over at Q&A with Josh Lanyon at Goodreads  during the Love Is a Many-Colored Thing – A Colorful Launch Party. It’s also a sort of Christmas present from Josh and Johanna (yeah, it takes that long for a package or letter from overseas to arrive here in our country).

The book I won comes with a set of colored pencils, btw.

I took a snapshot of some of my favorites (only some of it because really, I can’t post everything, not sure that is allowed.)

This particular art was inspired by Stranger on the Shore. I’ve read and reviewed this one, having received an ARC from Carina Press, and it turned out as one of my favorite books of all time.

Stranger on the Shore

 (May 2014 release) [Goodreads]

StrangerontheShore

Twenty years ago young Brian Arlington, heir to Arlington fortune, was kidnapped. Though the ransom was paid, the boy was never seen again and is presumed dead. Pierce Mather, the family lawyer, now administers and controls the Arlington billions. He’s none too happy, and more than a little suspicious, when investigative journalist Griffin Hadley shows up to write about the decades-old mystery. Griff shrugs off the coldly handsome Pierce’s objections, but it might not be so easy to shrug off the objections of someone willing to do anything to keep the past buried.

Another favorite is the one from Blood Red Butterfly. Because. I love butterflies! Come to that, who doesn’t? And the center of the artwork was butterfly shaped, I thought it was clever of Johanna. ❤

I bought a copy of this book from Amazon way back and finished it in one sitting! Admittedly I have yet to write a review (hangs head in shame). I will soon, but will have to reread it first.

My next favorite is from Winter Kill. I’ve read this book as well, having won a copy from the group although I have yet to write a proper review. Argh. This book also went straight to my all-time favorite list and its spin-off, The Mermaid Murders, is kind of on top of that list.

Winter Kill.jpg

Winter Kill

Published May 31, 2015

Clever and ambitious, Special Agent Adam Darling (yeah, he’s heard all the jokes before) was on the fast track to promotion and success until his mishandling of a high profile operation left one person dead and Adam “On the Beach.” Now he’s got a new partner, a new case, and a new chance to resurrect his career, hunting a legendary serial killer known as The Crow in a remote mountain resort in Oregon.

Deputy Sheriff Robert Haskell may seem laid-back, but he’s a tough and efficient cop — and he’s none too thrilled to see feebs on his turf — even when one of the agents is smart, handsome, and probably gay. But a butchered body in a Native American museum is out of his small town department’s league. For that matter, icy, uptight Adam Darling is out of Rob’s league, but that doesn’t mean Rob won’t take his best shot.

Okay, I’ll stop here. Will probably post at least three more of my favorite art from the book tomorrow. Meantime… the story of how I won the book and the colored pencil.

To celebrate the release of Love is a Many-Colored Thing, the moderators had thrown a launch party. Calathea, one of the moderators of the group, asked us to color a mandala. Now, I disliked coloring when I was a kid. I did it once, saw my horrible, horrible work, and sworn off drawing and coloring for life. Lol. But because there was a color picker and I wasn’t going to do any drawing, I tried it, because, why not. Surprise, surprise, I had fun doing it.

Here are a few of my favorite outputs:

I roped my SO to color one, btw, and the fourth mandala (the blue one) is his.

Naturally, the other members produced much better output than me but it didn’t matter, for the first time I had fun coloring. I even made one patterned from  our “parols” or the Christmas lanterns here in the Philippines (the fifth one in yellow, red, and greens). The image below shows the collective result of our efforts [courtesy of Calathea who painstakingly made the patchwork tile :)].

It’s awesome, don’t you think? ❤ ❤ ❤

I sincerely enjoyed this activity all thanks to the moderators Calathea, Johanna, Nicole, Josh and all the members who participated the party. ❤

Since then I bought a lot of coloring books (as gifts to my godchildren, nephews, nieces, friends last Christmas and for their birthdays). And since then, I’d been coloring in my free time.

Still not that confident in showing my works though. Lol. 😀 And I’m not sure I already have the courage to color this book but yeah, maybe someday when I’d had enough practice.

And that’s it! Thanks for reading this entry. Lastly, thank you Josh for the generosity and your talent and thank you Johanna, for your wonderful art! ❤

To celebrate the release, I’m doing a blog tour, and no tour is complete without prizes, amirite?

New Amsterdam Character Web

CHECK OUT THE MASSIVE VERSION OF THE CHARACTER WEB RIGHT ‘CHERE.

I know that thing makes MY eyes cross, so let’s break it down.

Today? We’re going to talk about Tim Akkard

Dear Tim might be the only straight man left in New Amsterdam. He certainly feels that way sometimes.

Tim is rather non-descript; brown hair and eyes with a nice smile. He’s about Clark’s height – 6’1” or so – and a tad older than Clark (which puts Tim around Daniel’s age; early 40s). He’s naturally slim and stays that way because he often forgets to eat.

About a year and a half ago, or so, Tim lost his wife, Dana, to cancer. He still grieves her, and he is quite convinced there is no one else for him, now. They were perfect for one another. They were kink-compatible, for one thing. Tim’s a Dom-Daddy sort who builds S&M furniture as a side job to his career, which is in architecture.

Or he used to, until Dana got sick.

Tim’s a partner in an architectural firm, and it was that firm which built Bliss & Break. He’s also a 1/4 owner of those clubs. He handles the security, now, and rarely goes to the clubs at all. He rarely goes out, period, really, other than to work and occasionally to Lucian’s house.

Tim met everybody when Clark joined a support group for vets with PTSD after he was discharged from the services (and before he opened Glow or found his various other callings in life). Tim helped Clark organize a group for gay vets that works in conjunction with the various Rainbow Centers around New Amsterdam.

Tim does know about and occasionally support/participate in the activities of the Merry Band of Vigilantes (the nickname Clark gave to himself, Lucian, Chance, and all the rest of the men trying to take down crime in the City). He has no moral qualms about it, that’s for sure; anything to help out the common people he supports.

So that’s Tim. Even though he gets very little “screen time,” he’s one of the characters I get asked about the most regarding when we get his story. Believe me, I’d love to see this guy happy, so as soon as he lets me know what’s up? I’ll let you know. 🙂

As always, if you happen to have questions for this character, please feel free to ask ‘em in the comments! Follow the BLOG TOUR to learn more about the characters of New Amsterdam.

And to win prizes.

‘Cause PRIZES, y’all. They rock.

Thanks for reading!

And definitely catch up with Ellis and Bryn in Earthquakes, the latest installment of the New Amsterdam series. Need a taste? How ‘bout an excerpt?

PS – It’s better to read it with the SOUNDTRACK.

EARTHQUAKES: A New Amsterdam Story

Ellis had been close to martial artists when they were training. He’d sparred with Clark. He’d seen Kris and Daniel and all his friends shoot at the range. There was an economy of motion that the athletically and lethally inclined all shared. Ellis admired it, strived for it, and knew he’d never get there. He was a workhorse, not a prince of motion.

And as he watched Bryn begin to move – not merely stretch or contort but move – Ellis thought of churches and gods and houses of worship.

Bryn’s feet bent in ways Ellis had never seen. Bryn could balance perfectly on one foot or even a single toe. When Bryn shed his pants after a moment or two and took the first few steps in only a pair of snug briefs, Ellis wasn’t hit with a wave of arousal. He was struck dumb with awe. Every line of Bryn was defined. Even the lift of one arm and the point of his fingers were deliberate and beautiful. Ellis stood completely still and held his breath. He was in the presence of some sort of everyday magic and calling attention to himself might break the spell.

The concentration on Bryn’s face was unlike anything Ellis had ever witnessed. He didn’t exist for Bryn. Nothing did except the music, the motion, and whatever spirit had come alive in Bryn to make Bryn…shine. There was no other word for it. The light played through the windows and infused Bryn with incandescence.

And when Bryn started to dance, really dance, he outshone the sun. A turn here, a pointed foot there, a twist and a glide and… God, Ellis didn’t know what Bryn was doing. But he felt it. The music was hopeful and yet haunting, and Bryn’s dance tugged at every ache both old and new in Ellis’s body. Bryn’s face portrayed almost no emotion, but with every dart of his hand, every slice of his leg through the air, with every crumble, fall, and rise, Ellis was struck over and over.

I will try, said Bryn’s reach toward God and Heaven and all things on high.

Though I know I will fail, said the drop of Bryn’s arm.

I will carry on, said the sweep of his leg.

But I’ll lose, said an arch of his back.

I will fight, said a twisting leap.

I will fall, said the thuds of Bryn’s feet on the floor.

I want to love, said the open reach of Bryn’s fingers.

Please, said Bryn’s clutched fist.

Bryn’s expanse of chest, his shut eyes, and his rise onto his curled toes snapped something in Ellis, and as the music faded, Ellis couldn’t take it anymore. He shut off the music, strode to Bryn, and caught Bryn up in his arms. Bryn was sweaty and warm and breathing hard. Ellis couldn’t stop kissing him. Bryn melted against Ellis, resting heavily against him. Ellis ran a hand through Bryn’s hair.

“I see you,” Ellis whispered. “I see you.”

KellyWyre_Amsterdam_Earthquakes

Earthquakes: A New Amsterdam Story
Ellis Parker is a lucky man: he escaped his persecuting family, survived his tour of duty, and met Maxwell Clark in the city of New Amsterdam. Clark showed Ellis more than the ropes: Clark helped Ellis figure out who he is – a gay submissive with a massive fixation on a beautiful, mysterious ballet dancer named Bryn Rothe. Ellis knows a Good Man when he sees one, and he wants nothing more than to score a first date with Bryn.

Little does Ellis know that Bryn has a violent past that is crawling out of shallow graves to haunt him. Even his hectic schedule and beloved stage aren’t enough to distract him. It’s impossible for Bryn to figure out how he feels about Ellis with his demons between them, but when Ellis saves Bryn not once but twice, Bryn is forced to admit that there’s something about Ellis that Bryn might not merely want but need.

Together, they journey to the scene of Bryn’s original crime – Charles Towne, South Carolina. There they will dig up secrets that might explain Bryn’s tortured life but might also be his – and Ellis’s – undoing.

Book Review: Jefferson Blythe, Esquire by Josh Lanyon

In this fast, fun and dead-sexy male/male new-adult caper from multi-award-winning author Josh Lanyon, twentysomething Jefferson Blythe gets lost, gets found, falls in love and comes out…all in the span of one wild summer.

After his first relationship goes disastrously awry, Jeff Blythe uses his savings to tour Europe—the old-fashioned way. Armed with his grandfather’s1960 copy of Esquire’s Europe in Style, Jeff sets off looking for adventure but finds much, much more than he bargained for…

In London, dodging questions from shady criminals about a mysterious package he most certainly does not have is simple. Losing the gunmen who are convinced he’s someone else is not. And when George, an old friend, offers him help—and a place to stay, and perhaps something more—things become complicated.

Is George really who he seems? And is Jeff finally ready to act on his attraction?

From Paris to Rome and back again, Jeff and George fall for each other, hard, while quite literally running for their lives. But trusting George at his word may leave Jeff vulnerable—in more ways than one.

My Review
Warning: Contains Spoilers
My rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 out of 5 stars

I enjoyed reading Jefferson Blythe, Esquire immensely as I’m wont to do when reading a Josh Lanyon book.

Jefferson Blythe, twenty two, is fresh out of college and is currently facing a crossroad in his life. His childhood sweetheart Amy broke off their engagement and, hurting, he went to a two-week vacation in Europe where he is supposedly spending four days each in London, Paris, and Rome using the money he saved for her engagement ring. 🙂

Equipped with his determination, his thirst for adventure, his fedora, his grandpa’s book [which Jefferson referred to as The Book, Esquire’s Europe in Style], a partial list of the places he wanted to see, and his old, battered suitcase (again, courtesy of his grandpa), he ventured to mirror the grand tour his grandpa made fifty years ago. The moment he landed at the Heathrow Airport however, things started to take a bizarre turn. From there, everything that could go wrong went wrong and half of his journey was spent getting kidnapped or trying to dodge someone who’s trying to kill him.

There’s a lot about this book that I love. It’s hilarious for one. Okay, so there’s nothing funny about getting kidnapped or getting shot at many times but his pursuers were. There’s nothing like someone dumb, greedy, plus a nutter getting together to make a story colorful. It’s clearly a recipe for disaster.

I loved the main character, Jeff, and I loved that Josh wrote Jeff’s story wherein he literally embarked on a tour in order to find himself. I loved what Josh Lanyon’s trying to say in this book: that life is a journey, an adventure we must savor and experience never mind that half the time we’re met with disasters (or one disaster to another). For what kind of life is it if we don’t experience both the good and the bad? ❤ Because in the end, it’s how we find out who we truly are. ❤

Mystery: check, humor: check, romance: check, adventure: check. So yeah, five stars for me. 🙂

Book Review: Stranger on the Shore by Josh Lanyon

Rating: ★★★★★

Published May 2014 by Carina Press

StrangerontheShoreOMG. LOL. I don’t know what to say… Josh Lanyon had done it again. The thing is, I’ve said the same, exact thing after reading his Christmas codas in his blog… and his other works that I’ve read before that.

Josh’s works make me laugh; make me feel on the edge of my seat; make my heart clench; bring tears to my eyes; keep on making me guess (who the culprit is), render me speechless. Stranger on the Shore made me feel all of these. I just wish there were more lovey-dovey moments between Griff and Pierce before they jumped in the sack but that’s just me, I guess. 😛

I find it romantic that even as a kid, Brian couldn’t get his hands off of Pierce. Aww, really sweet.

My most favorite part of the book is when Griff was reading through Gemma’s journal and there was that entry in July 4th that made me bawl like a baby. It was like a punch in the gut. It’s just… I remember reading and going through my mother’s things when I was 12… trying to get a glimpse of how she was as a person. In the end, I stopped doing it because those books, notebooks, slum book could hardly give me an idea of who she was. Just that she loved reading, loved, Science… had a very neat penmanship, loved a cheesy book and music and that’s it. Put that way, she could have been anyone.

Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that this is why I love Josh Lanyon. He understands human emotions and he successfully translates those into words every time making the readers laugh or cry, commiserate with the main character or be mad at him and so on and so forth.

Then of course there was the mystery element in his books as a bonus. 🙂

Looking forward to reading his latest work: The Boy with the Painful Tattoo. ❤

Stranger on the Shore by Josh Lanyon [Goodreads]

Twenty years ago young Brian Arlington, heir to Arlington fortune, was kidnapped. Though the ransom was paid, the boy was never seen again and is presumed dead. Pierce Mather, the family lawyer, now administers and controls the Arlington billions. He’s none too happy, and more than a little suspicious, when investigative journalist Griffin Hadley shows up to write about the decades-old mystery. Griff shrugs off the coldly handsome Pierce’s objections, but it might not be so easy to shrug off the objections of someone willing to do anything to keep the past buried.

About the Book

Johnny walked home from school on the shoulder of Grass Lake Road every day without a problem for a year, until The Big Kids, the Carbone’s, moved into town and eventually started beating him. But one day, Johnny had an idea to walk home on a different route. Through the woods. Although, when he arrived at the path into the woods something far worse than the big kids had been waiting for him.
