Welcome Lee Brazil and Story Orgy Author, Havan Fellows Today

Welcome Lee Brazil to my blog as he sits down with fellow Story Orgy author, Havan Fellows and talks about books, their new anthology coming out (with some awesome authors included) and more. Oh make sure to hang onto your coffee because Havan can get quite rambunctious. *grins*


December is Read a New Book Month

Hi, thanks for having me back here, Dawn! For those of you I don't know, I'm Lee Brazil, m/m romance author for Breathless Press and member of the Story Orgy Writing group. This is my fellow Orgiast, and Muse, Havan Fellows.

*waves* Hiya everyone *giggles and smack dabs on Dawn's cheeks* hey beautiful
*sips coffee*
*eyes coffee*

Hey, Dawn, are you enjoying the snow? I love the snow when it's out there and I'm inside with a warm drink and a good book. Speaking of, December is Read a New Book Month. Did you know this? I myself had no clue. Someone told me that the other day. I figure any month is a good month for reading, but December is especially cozy. Y'all look at a calendar these days and it seems like they've gone out of their way to make up some special significance for every single day. Some things, I really do think need to be emphasized, for one reason or another. December 1st was World AIDS Awareness Day. I can support that day whole heartedly. *add more sugar to coffee* But, yah know, I've seen Cheesecake Day, and Eat a Red Apple Day, even Bathtub Party Day. 

*opens mouth to talk*
*glances at Havan*
Maybe we could—
No, doll, we are not celebrating that one. Here, have another cookie. *pushes plate over and stretches out legs*

*stretches out my legs over Lee's and puts plate on lap…munches on cookie…sips Lee's coffee…rests head on his shoulder and giggles* I'm just saying—if you are going to have a party a bathtub is the perfect place for one…clean-up would be a breeze and there would be no worry about spillage *winks at Dawn and pulls her down next to us* 

I see that some things need more than a day, though, and I guess reading a book is one of them. So I thought, since it is Read New Book Month and all, I'd tell you what I'm reading this month. *taps kindle* 

*whispers to Dawn* he never goes anywhere without that bad boy hehe

I went on over to the e-book seller this last week and picked up a few things. *ducks head* I should warn you I’m a voracious reader, and fairly eclectic in my tastes. So I have a little bit of everything on here. Let's see, I got Lost Light by Michael Connelly, Bad Boyfriend by KA Mitchell, Josh Lanyon's Snowball in Hell, and Top Chef the Cookbook by Tom Colicchio. *Sips coffee* What are you reading this month, Havan?

Well I'm kinda playing catch-up…I have Allison Cassatta's Immortal #1, Ilona Andrews Magic Bleeds and Magic Slays (part 4 & 5 of her Kate Daniels series) and the one my nephew is forcing me to read…because it is evidently a crime to be an author and not have read it…The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. *hangs head in shame for my admission*

*jaw drops* That's one of my "life altering" books, Havan! How have you not read the Guide? *chuckles* Always carry a towel. So, Dawn, what’s in your TBR this month?

*looks at Lee and Havan and wonders if I should mention the the three subject notebooks full of wish list books*
Oh goddess, you really want to know huh? *grins and drags out the notebooks* You asked for it....of course, Word Play is on there but so are Andrew Grey's Love Mean's...Family; Leon by SJD Peterson and many more. :-) Hey you asked so stop looking at me like i am from another planet.

Y'all know, Story Orgy has anthologies releasing this month, too. Word Play from Breathless Press is an eclectic collection of m/m romance. Maybe some of y'all would like to check it out while you're looking for your new book to read in December? 

*bounces next to Lee…cookies fly everywhere and coffee did not spill* Yay! I love when we get together and knock out an assets kicking antho like this one!  *giggles and wipes up the coffee that didn't spill* Oops…sorry?

Harlan's Ryde

Ryder made a mistake Harlan can't forgive.  Will Ryder cross a line no man should cross to obtain a second chance?
Ryder Halloway made a life changing decision about his relationship with Harlan when he was young and stupid.  Thanks to one rash moment, he lost it all.  He lost the only man he would ever love, his drive to even try to finish college and his zest for life.

Seven years later finds him in front of Harlan's house preparing to take back what he lost with a vengeance.    He's prepared to use all the tricks in his arsenal to plow through every wall, protest and excuse Harlan might come up with.

Of course, he never expected Harlan to put him in the hospital …

Harlan Mychels had his heart broken in college by the popular Ryder.  He learned his lesson about love and since then hasn't allowed anyone even remotely close to his heart.  Then one morning he turns and sees the one person able to tear his walls down and destroy what is left of it.

He uses every defensive tactic in his possession to keep Ryder at arm's length, but Ryder is persistent.  Harlan's not sure if he can stay safe from heartache … and he starts wondering what the real heartache is – letting Ryder in again … or letting him go for good.

Em Woods
Harper's Discovery

When Harper finally sees the light and dumps his cheating boyfriend, can Pitt convince Harper to trust him enough to let it all go?
When Harper Evans discovers his boyfriend in yet another bar with yet another Joe, he makes the final break and kicks him out. More relieved than heart-broke, Harper turns his attention to the letter burning a hole in his pocket that could mean a fresh start across the country.
Pitt Mullen has been looking for just such an opportunity and pounces on it - and Harper - when it shows up. But not everything is as it appears. When Pitt gets a late night call and rushes to another, will Harper understand or cut his ties before he listens to the truth? 


Hank Edwards
Wicked Reflection

A sexy, bad boy neighbor, a handsome detective investigating an unsolved murder, and ghostly warnings help Kirk uncover the deadly secret within his new house.

Kirk Stanford’s realtor never mentioned certain features of his new home during the walk through, such as mysterious rooms and brutal secrets. All Kirk knows is he has a lot of unpacking to do and a handsome, bad boy neighbor seems to have taken an interest in him.

But then the warnings begin to appear, written in steam on the bathroom mirror. At first, Kirk dismisses the messages, but when a prowler attempts to break into his house, and a handsome private detective shows up asking questions about the murder, Kirk realizes how much danger he is in. He’s invested too much money in his new house to just walk away, so his only choice now is to figure out for himself who the murderer is and what he still wants out of his house.

Dark secrets come to light and Kirk is forced to put his trust in a supernatural presence as he fights to survive.

The Park at Sunrise


First they were three, now there are two.  
Can Jason and Morgan make a relationship work without Paul?

For years the three of them had been inseparable, first as friends, then lovers. It's been ten years since they parted for what was supposed to be a year apart to pursue their dreams.   This isn't the reunion they planned then.  It's nine years too late for one thing, and they are one man short for another.
In the years since Paul's death, Morgan hasn't exactly been waiting for Jason to reach out to him.    He's been too busy trying to forget, to move on.  Until Jason sends the right message. Is the painting just an excuse to see his ex again? 


JR Boyd
Off the Beaten Path


Best Friends and landscaping entrepreneurs, Mitch Sterling and Colby Merritt, enjoy their comradeship. Can scouting country roads for business opportunities unveil a lifetime of passion?


Best friends, Mitch Sterling and Colby Merritt have spent their whole lives together in a small town in the Hill Country of Texas.

Colby uses his college education to handle the business aspect of the company from their office.

Outside work, the two can always be found together. A Saturday morning drive leads them to a dirt road that neither has ever traveled. With the help of a few beers, the hot Texas sun, and a secluded country pond, Mitch and Colby find themselves exploring new territory Off the Beaten Path.
