Hump Day Hook – 06 March 2013

Greetings, all!

It’s Wednesday and that means it’s time for a Hump Day Hook!

I’m finishing my release celebration of Lust in Time: Erotic Romance through the Ages with a final clip from Giant Killer, the 1000 BC entry in this great collection from Rob Rosen and MLR Press.

Some commotion stirred the rear of the hall; heads swiveled and necks bowed as the audience members whispered one to another. Jonathan recognized his father’s seneschal, Ziba, moving across the back of the chamber. The family retainer was accompanied by a tall young man who looked every which way, trying to take in all there was to be seen. Jonathan suppressed a smile. What a rube!

The crowd parted as the newcomers strode forward to stand before King Saul. The young man was… a vision… so handsome that he had to be an angel—although surely no angel would look so travel worn. The youth was lean and bronzed with dark hair; he made brief eye contact with Jonathan. When he looked away, Jonathan had to force himself to breathe—the young man’s piercing blue eyes had completely entranced him.

Saturday Seductive Studs – 02 March 2013

Greetings, all!

As I’m celebrating the release of Lust in Time: Erotic Romance through the Ages—a great collection edited by Rob Rosen and released by MLR Press, my clip today is from my contribution, Giant Killer, the 1000 BC entry in the anthology.

The handsome warrior was more than an ordinary soldier; he was the king’s son. Surely he will have no time for a shepherd. David had clearly heard Jonathan’s frustration when he got saddled with his care. Silently he followed behind.

Jonathan’s chamber befit a soldier—sparse and spare, the room was little more than utilitarian—yet David could still tell he was with royalty. Rich woods and textiles comprised what masculine furnishings there were. A hint of cloves seemed to hang in the air. There was no decoration.

“As my father decided, that is to be your bed.” Jonathan pointed to a small cot shoved into a corner. Spare pieces of armor were stacked nearby.

“Th—thank you, my lord.” David looked around the room, missing the simplicity of Jesse’s house. His excitement had waned, and never had he wished so much to be in Bethlehem. Suddenly he felt very much alone.

“There is water and a basin so you may wash and change clothing.”

“Yes, my lord,” he replied, keeping his eyes averted. Looking at Jonathan just made his heart race and his mouth dry—it was easier to look at the floor or walls—anywhere but at the attractive soldier.

Lust in Time: Erotic Romance through the Ages is now available from MLR Press in both print and ebook formats.

Since I’ve been tagged by Ciaran Dwynvil in the 7/7/7 meme on Facebook (this is how you play: Go to page 7, 77 or 177 of your manuscript, count down 7 lines, then copy the next 7 to your status; after that, name 7 more authors to come out and play), I’m taking the opportunity to promote the Lust in Time release. My bit is from my story Giant Killer, which is the 1000BC entry in the anthology:

While he and Ziba travelled from Bethlehem, David had planned how he would answer Saul, how he would make the king see that Jesse needed him at home. Back and forth he’d debated with himself until he knew exactly what he would say. Now that was all gone, and he was just a shepherd kneeling before the mightiest man in Israel.

When Saul bid him look up, David glanced at the soldier. The man smiled—and that smile reached those deep-brown eyes and filled David with a sense of calm and confidence. He realized that no words would convince Saul; only music could sway the king. And music he could make.

Steambath Update!

steambath coverOne of my recent sales appears in Steambath: Sweaty Gay Erotica, the newest collection by Shane Allison from Cleis Press, releasing on July 16th, and now available for pre-order from TLAgay.com!

From the cover: “C.C. Williams will make you quiver in his tasty new creation, What I Am For.” {blush}

This is my pitch for the story: During Grandville College’s gay pride week, Doctor Gustav Stuyvesant recalls an important part of his personal coming out history. Doctor Stuyvesant takes his audience on a blow-by-blow tour of his first visit to a gay bath house and relates its effect on him. (Yep, it’s more of those Grandville College hijinks!)

I am along side such notaries as Rob Rosen, Logan Zachary, and Heidi Champa—to name just a few of the people in this hot collection!

Be sure to check this out! Get your copy ordered now!
