Dreamspinner Paperback Sale & Preorders for GRL

Attention, GayRomLit attendees! For those who haven’t heard, through this Sunday, September 21, Dreamspinner Press has ALL paperbacks (even ones they don’t normally keep in stock) on sale for 35% off and will deliver your purchases to you in Chicago for no shipping charges. That way, you won’t need to buy on site, and you can order any paperbacks for any authors, including those of us who aren’t registered as authors, or even authors who won’t be attending at all.

To designate your order for pickup at GRL, use the code GRL2014 at checkout.
The offer applies for some books that haven’t officially been released yet, including the All in a Day’s Work anthology, which comes out on Monday. Several of the anthology’s authors will be in attendance at GRL, including Bru Baker, AJ Cousins, and me, of course! You can also order paperbacks of my novel Sand & Water or the Playing Ball or Grand Adventures anthologies.

The 35% discount is available for everyone. You can still order books to be delivered to you directly (with the usual shipping charges). So whether you’ll be in Chicago or not, this is a great chance to stock your bookshelves with old favorites or new reads.

Happy shopping!

An Interview and a New Audiobook

Two announcements to make!

PlayingBallORIGSunday night, Writers Online Network will play host to the authors of the Playing Ball anthology for the “Taste Test” feature. Kate McMurray, Marguerite Labbe, Kerry Freeman, and I will be there to talk with Wt Prater about the anthology, our stories, and our mutual love affair with baseball. The show starts at 7 p.m. Central time (8 p.m. on the East Coast, 5 p.m. on the West Coast). Here’s the link!

Also, the audiobook for the Dreamspinner Press Grand Adventures anthology is now available on Amazon, Audible, and iTunes. As with all the other products related to the anthology, proceeds will go to authors Eric Arvin and TJ Klune to support them during Eric’s recovery process. Here’s the link!

More Adventures, and Some Ninjas

Prism Book Alliance has posted a lovely review of the Grand Adventures anthology. Thanks, all! Prism also has the final stop in the Grand Adventures blog tour today, with the story behind the anthology’s inception and its cover art.

Also, Amy Lane’s *Kermit flail* Monday includes Butt Ninjas from Hell this morning. Yay! Thanks, Amy! 🙂

Coming Soon: Grand Adventures

Eric Arvin and T.J. Klune are two well-known and well-liked authors in the gay romance community who are happily coupled and planning to marry later this year. In December, Eric suddenly had to undergo brain surgery that’s left him mostly paralyzed. It’s been a very hard few months, but through everything, their love has only grown stronger.

GrandAdventuresLGEric and T.J. are both published (in part) by my primary publisher, Dreamspinner Press, which decided to put together an anthology, Grand Adventures, with all proceeds going to help Eric and T.J. pay the many extra costs associated with managing Eric’s condition. I was happy to contribute a second edition of my short story “Stripped,” and when I saw the lineup of other authors, I felt a little giddy. And the cover! OMG. So much love. (You’ll be able to buy prints and maybe even t-shirts of the cover art soon, too!)

The anthology will be released on March 31 and is available for preorder now in ebook or paperback format. It’s a fantastic way to help out two great guys.

(P.S. You can also donate directly to T.J. and Eric through the GoFundMe page set up by friends. Since everything at Dreamspinner is on sale right now, consider donating the difference between the purchase price and the price you pay for your preorder!)

Housecleaning and an Audiobook!

I’m doing a bit of housecleaning on the site, mainly to organize the bibliography a little better. If you find any borked links or can’t find something, let me know in comments and I’ll locate it for you. 🙂

Also, the audiobook of the Never Say Never anthology released! Woot! Now you can listen to all those dirty words from “Stripped” being read into your ear. Oooo. shivers 😉

Happy Valentine’s Day!

sparkling rainbow heartI’m one of those eternally optimistic people who can’t bring myself to be cynical about Valentine’s Day. Never mind that I’ve been single for most of them. Yes, V-Day is way overcommercialized, like most holidays, but I find it difficult to look too harshly on a day whose basic purpose is to celebrate love. Romantic love isn’t even the tip of the iceberg of what’s out there. So no matter what your status—single, partnered, or “it’s complicated”—I hope you have a day filled with love. 🙂

To help you celebrate, here are a few discount offers to go toward restocking your selection of romance reading!

  • Dreamspinner Press is offering 20% off everything today (through midnight Eastern time), and for the rest of the month, they’re running a Hearts and Flowers scavenger hunt, with a heart graphic hidden in various places around the web site. Find and click on the graphic, and you’ll get a code for 20% off all the publications by the author whose page the graphic is hidden on.
  • Rainbow eBooks is offering 30% off all new releases today (double the usual Totally Tuesday discount). Also, several standalone items are 50% off, and all Untreed Reads titles are 30% off all month.
  • Samhain Publishing is offering 30% off your entire order all day today. Just use coupon code LOVE12.

I’ll be tweeting/retweeting any other offers I see turn up during the day, so check @shaeconnor or the Twitter feed at the right side of this page for more. 🙂

(Oh, and while you’re shopping, don’t forget you can still get the Never Say Never Valentine’s Day anthology, which includes my short story “Stripped”!)

Kindlegraphing

I’ve signed up for Kindlegraph, which allows you to get personalized autographs for your Kindle books. Model Student and the Never Say Never and Uniform Appeal anthologies are available now, and Sand & Water will be added as soon as it appears on Amazon. 🙂

Out in Print reviews “Stripped”

An awesome review for “Stripped” at OutInPrint as part of a review of the Never Say Never anthology. A snippet:

The story, which is well written, has emotion, a touch of romance, and some great sex. I’ve not seen other stories by Shae, but after reading this, I’ll be looking for more from this author.

Thanks, guys! (And thanks to Xavier for the heads up!)

4 Kisses for Never Say Never

Michele at Michele ‘n Lisa Reviews gave the Never Say Never anthology 4 Kisses and had some great things to say about my contribution, “Stripped.” A little snippet:

Just wait till you get to the hotel scene. Holy Hot Cakes! Grab your ice water first.

Thanks, Michele! 🙂
