FREEMAN’s at Elisa Rolle’s + Giveaway

Originally posted by at GayRomLit Retreat: Clare London

Starting from March up until September I will feature authors attending the GayRomLit Retreat in Chicago (October 16-19, 2014:

Today author is Clare London: Clare took the pen name London from the city where she lives, loves, and writes. A lone, brave female in a frenetic, testosterone-fuelled family home, she juggles her writing with the weekly wash, waiting for the far distant day when she can afford to give up her day job as an accountant. She’s written in many genres and across many settings, with novels and short stories published both online and in print. She says she likes variety in her writing while friends say she’s just fickle, but as long as both theories spawn good fiction, she’s happy. Most of her work features male/male romance and drama with a healthy serving of physical passion, as she enjoys both reading and writing about strong, sympathetic and sexy characters. Clare currently has several novels sulking at that tricky chapter 3 stage and plenty of other projects in mind . . . she just has to find out where she left them in that frenetic, testosterone-fuelled family home.

Clare London and Wilde City Press are offering a copy of Freeman to one commenter on this blog. You can comment on LJ or DW if you have an account (I will send a PM to the winner), if you don’t have an account, please leave a comment on DW with a contact email.

Freeman’s return to the city is quiet, without fuss — the way he likes things. But, he’s missed by more people than he thought: his ex-wife, his ex-lover, and his ex-business partner. One wants friendship, another one intimacy. The third just wants him the hell gone again. Freeman — private, controlled — hasn’t time or appetite for trouble. But, when he strikes up an unusual, ill-advised friendship with young, lively, amoral Kit, it seems trouble’s come looking for both men, ready to expose secrets that can destroy the fragile trust they’ve built. Freeman’s more ready for the challenge than anyone realizes when the choice comes down to peace or Kit’s life.

Genre Bending

by Pearl Love

Full confession time: I am not a romantic person. I don’t have a lot of interest in romance in my everyday life. So why do I write romance novels, and why M/M romance novels in particular? The answer to the latter is fairly straight forward. I like the thought of pretty men together. And I’m intrigued by the apparently radical notion of putting characters in situations where they just happen to be gay rather than being completely defined by their sexuality.  The answer to the first question, however, is the basis of why I prefer to write stories that don’t fit within the contemporary mold. For me, it’s all about “romance and.”   

Romance and Sci-Fi: This is by far my favorite type of story because it can run the gamut of time–from past, to the present, to the far future. This is the genre that allows…

The Perfect Swag – a step too far?!

I found the most perfect item of swag recently, JUST what I’d love to bring along to UK Meet, GRL, and/or wherever else I may join in this year. It’s cute, light, relatively inexpensive, declares a love for London (i.e. me!) – and fits my personality (and desires) very well.


I can only get hold of 8 of them! *arrgghhhh*
