Acting Out an ARe Bestseller!!

After one very long tour of duty in Afghanistan and an honorable discharge from the USMC, Elijah Preston comes home to nothing. He barely scrapes up enough money for a cheap motel in Quantico, Virginia, with no money-making opportunities in sight. A chance encounter in a local Walmart finally gives Eli hope for employment. Elijah is ready to sign on with Royce Mackey's proposition... until he hears what’s required. Royce operates a gay military porn site and wants Eli as his next star, never mind that Eli isn’t gay. Desperate and broke, Eli grudgingly accepts Royce’s offer and soon finds himself immersed in a strange new world.

Hamish Turner’s been there before. Taking Eli under his wing, he teaches him everything he can about Royce’s operation. The two quickly become friends, easing the way for their first scene together. Awkward at first, they both ease into it and find there is more of a connection between them than either expected. Curious to see where their mutual attraction takes them, they begin a relationship off-screen. But life gets complicated when a crazed fan of Hamish’s starts sending threatening letters demanding the scenes between the two men stop. Or else….

Going to GRL?

http://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/store/index.php


I did not do a pre-order of any of my books, but DSP is having a great sale and you can have your books delivered to GRL free of charge by putting in the GRL2014 code at checkout.  That being said, I have a few of my books from my personal book shelf I'll be bringing with me. I haven't quite decided how I will be giving them out, but I will figure that out once I get there ;)  If you see me with a really cool handmade quilted bag, just stop over and say Hi and you never know what I'll have in my bag at any given moment as it will be changing often, but should always contain something fun and interesting ;)   I have a very limited number of print books so if there is one you really want to pick up I'd suggest ordering it from DSP and letting them pay the shipping ;)



Looking forward to seeing everyone
~hugs~

INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR JAMIE LAKE ON: BAD BOY

It's not everyday that you hear about a novel involving a teacher that moonlights as an adult massage therapist. Peter is sweet innocent guy that finds himself in a situation he can't get out of in Jamie Lake's Bad Boy series. I had the chance to chat with the author about this 5-part series and why it's become so popular with m/m readers.


Describe Bad Boy. How is it different than most gay romance novels? 
 Bad Boy is a lot different because it deals with a situation that although people on the surface may think they’d never get into, the human elements are something everyone can relate to. You have a teacher who has his hours slashed and is so desperate to make ends meet that he’s willing to do anything, even compromise his values to survive. In his case, Peter finds himself doing nude massages. He’s single, he’s lonely and figures after years of dating, that he’ll never meet the one. So, although there is a tremendous career risk, he’s willing to take it. But that’s when he finally meets the perfect guy and finds himself in a serious dilemma trying to live a double-life.

How was it that you thought of Bad Boy originally? 
 It was actually inspired by true events. That’s why when some people say, “Oh, this couldn’t really happen,” I kind of laugh a little to myself because on some levels it did actually happen. I just exaggerated and let my imagination go wild about how bad I could really make it for my protagonist.

Making a protagonist an educator is a little different than most m/m novels. Why did you make Peter one?  
To my knowledge, there aren’t many m/m novels that feature teachers and teachers are hot. I’m sure we can all relate to having a crush on a teacher or two. I had a crush on my Health teacher in high school. Woof! He was fucking hot. Plus, I wanted to think of the very last profession anyone would expect a nude massage therapist.

A cop named Chip is your love interest. That was an interesting choice. 
 I also think Cops are pretty hot too. When I lived in New York, they had the hottest cops. I often would fantasize about a situation or two back then when I was single. So, I figured I’d live out my fantasy through my characters.

Tell my readers about your antagonist, he’s kind of fascinating.  
Yeah, he too is loosely based on someone I dated who was in the mafia.  When you get to know people in the mafia well, they’re a lot different than you expect. Real human beings, often nice people with integrity but they have that other side, that is not pretty if you cross it.

Did you have any idea people would be so receptive of a hot teacher that massages clients in the nude at night? 
 I was kind of surprised actually. I love the fact that in the m/m world, the readers are open to new situations that they usually don’t read about.  I think many people fantasize about being able to rub down hot guys if they could get away with it. Fortunately for us, we can live vicariously through the characters we read about.

Where can we get a copy of Bad Boy? You can get it exclusively on Amazon http://bit.ly/BADBOYNOVEL1 or email me at JamieLakeNovels AT gmail.


*Although this is a true love story with a real plot, it contains hot gay romance m/m scenes *

Peter never thought things would get so tough that he’d need to give out sensual massages in secret in order to make ends meet. He’s a kindergarten teacher and a good one who loves his job. But being a sensual masseuse by night, hot as it may be, is not exactly his dream. All he wants is a nice quiet life and the love of a great guy, a family, and someone who will love him from the heart and accept him without judgment. But when the school slashes his hours in half and no other jobs are available, the opportunity to give sensual massages to men under a secret name seems like the best way out of his current situation at least for now.

Chip is a tough, macho, blue collar, police detective whose ex has just died. He is also a dedicated loving single father to a 5-year-old son. In a town like Las Vegas, he thinks he’ll never meet anyone who is ready to start a family. He has had his fair share of flakes and liars in his life but when he finally met his son’s favorite kindergarten teacher, probably the hottest guy he’d seen in years, his hope is lifted. He just knows, this is the one. Has he finally met someone who is honest and won’t hide things from him?

For Peter, what he thinks will be a onetime thing turns into a booming business giving sensual massages at night. Meeting Chip seems like the welcome change he needs in his life. He is by far, everything he could ever ask for in a man but it’s not exactly the best time in his life to meet someone. But if Peter doesn’t jump at the chance to be with Chip, could he be missing out on the one he’s been waiting for?

Peter promises himself he’ll only do the sensual massages in secret just until he gets caught up on his bills. Then, he’ll quit. But what will the school where he works say if they find out what Peter is doing on the side and what is worse, what will Detective Chip say when he finds out his dream guy has been a very bad boy?

What will Chip say if he finds out what Peter is doing on the side? And, what’s worse, what will the school say when they find out this teacher has been a very bad boy?
