What is a blog hop?
The host of the hop puts together a list of all participating blogs. During the dates of the hop, each blog owner posts on his/her blog about what they are offering as a prize. Readers follow the links to the participating blogs (going from one blog to the next) and post comments or follow the blogger’s instructions at each in order to enter the individual giveaways.

There are already over 135 authors, reviewers, and publishers signed up, so be sure to check out the hop page in May for your chance to win from what is sure to be a huge list of fantastic m/m prizes.

Quote I Love: How Considerate

Today I’m sharing a quote from the work of Jordan Castillo Price, author of m/m horror and urban fantasy. In this scene Victor, a gay medium (as in ghost-seeing) cop, is inspecting a murder scene.

“The tech said that judging by the open container of lube nearby she’d just spotted, the victim had likely been penetrated, though the coroner would have to verify that. A psycho murderer who lubed. How considerate.”

From Among the Living (PsyCop #1) by Jordan Castillo Price

I love Victor’s humor in this series. It just sneaks up and smacks into you at the most unlikely, but perfectly timed, moments. You can find out more about this and other work by Jordan Castillo Price at her website.

Quote I Love: Catching Balls

For my quote of the week, I thought I’d share an occasional quote from works by other authors of gay romances.

To start us off, here’s a great line from As You Are by Ethan Day. It’s Julian’s reaction when asked to play a little touch football with his roommate (and the man he wants more than friendship with), Danny.

“Images from the two weeks of high school phys ed I’d suffered through flashed before my eyes. Luckily, thanks to Mom and the very cooperative family doctor, the torture of PE hadn’t lasted any longer. It always baffled me that as much as I loved to suck balls, I sure as fuck couldn’t seem to catch one.”
