To live through the zombie apocalypse they have to survive each other first.

Gay Book Reviews gives gay shifter romance Kick at the Darkness 5 stars:

I read the entire book in one sitting. Ms. Andrews kicked this one in the ass and destroyed every one of my preconceived notions about an apocalyptic book actually being romantic. This one is swoon worthy!

The relationship these two form is deep and strong and incredibly loving and that is what sold me, hook, line and sinker. They shared their fear, their longing and their passion and held absolutely nothing back. So, who’d have thought a zombie apocalypse book with an anti-social werewolf and a snotty college freshman would be such a fabulous read?

Gay Amish Romance Book #1

When two young Amish men find love, will they risk losing everything?

In a world where every detail of life—down to the width of a hat brim—is dictated by God and the all-powerful rules of the community, two men dare to imagine a different way. At 18, Isaac Byler knows little outside the strict Amish settlement of Zebulon, Minnesota, where there is no rumspringa for exploration beyond the boundaries of their insular world. Isaac knows he’ll have to officially join the church and find a wife before too long, but he yearns for something else—something he can’t name.

Dark tragedy has left carpenter David Lantz alone to support his mother and sisters, and he can’t put off joining the church any longer. But when he takes on Isaac as an apprentice, their attraction grows amid the sweat and sawdust. David shares his sinful secrets, and he and Isaac struggle to reconcile their shocking desires with their commitment to faith, family and community.

Now that they’ve found each other, are they willing to lose it all?

Can young gay Amish men find happiness? “These boys bring out all your feels.”


 

Gay Amish romance

Will returning to their Amish roots renew their faith in each other?

5 stars from The Novel Approach for A Way Home, the end of the gay Amish romance trilogy:

As sad as I am to see this beautiful trilogy come to an end, I am extremely satisfied with the way Keira Andrews left things. She covered everything I hoped would be touched on, and then some…

I want to shout from the rooftops about the climax of the story, and how perfect the ending is…but, as always, I would never give anything away. I will say this, though…there are moments that will leave you speechless, moments that will have you cheering, and there will be tears. Lots of tears, if you’re a baby like me. I dubbed chapter fourteen as “the chapter of all the cries.”

If you watch the Walking Dead and don’t think there’s enough sex, this is the book for you!


 

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00067]

To live through the zombie apocalypse they have to survive each other first.

The (Really) Naughty Corner recommends gay shifter romance Kick at the Darkness:

If you watch The Walking Dead but don’t think there’s enough sex accompanying the gruesome action scenes, and you enjoy male/male romance, then Kick At The Darkness is the book for you. Keira Andrews weaves a tense, compelling tale in which two very different men find love among the ruins of society…

[T]he erotic action  is sizzling hot and very nicely described. Indeed, I’d advise having ice water to hand to cool you down after Parker and Adam’s  rough and ready coupling on a picnic table in Yosemite National Park…

Gay Amish trilogy: “The book is a solid HEA, the series is a solid HEA, and it’s absolutely brilliant.”


 

Gay Amish romance

Will returning to their Amish roots renew their faith in each other?

Rave review from V’s Reads for A Way Home, the end of the gay Amish romance trilogy:

I have been charmed by David and Isaac throughout this series, and was no less so in this final installment. I was SO GLAD to see their unsettled feelings regarding Zebulon resolved, and to know that life will go on in the positive direction…

The book is a solid HEA, the series is a solid HEA, and it’s absolutely brilliant. Cannot recommend enough.

Kick at the Darkness is “a kickass zombie apocalypse book”


 

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00067]

To live through the zombie apocalypse they have to survive each other first.

3 Chicks After Dark rave about gay shifter romance Kick at the Darkness:

Thank you, Keira Andrews, for a kickass zombie apocalypse book!… Andrews builds a world that’s familiar and before our eyes transforms it into a disease-ravaged shell of itself. She expertly demonstrates the changes in not only the physical landscape of the country, but also the sociological state associated with such a catastrophe.  I find it fascinating the way different people react in the face of danger, and Andrews definitely gives us a variety of responses…

What I feel is truly remarkable about this story is that in the middle of all the death and destruction, there’s love. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love when authors create something beautiful against a backdrop of horror.

Check out this gay werewolf romance with “hot, dirty sex scenes”


 

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00067]To live through the zombie apocalypse they have to survive each other first.

Night Owl Reviews gives gay shifter romance Kick at the Darkness 5 stars:

This story had a bit of everything in it. It was funny in places, had action & adventure, had a really sweet love story and had some hot, dirty sex scenes (*clears throat* Parker was filthy). I’ll be honest. I wasn’t 100% sure this plotline could be pulled off. I mean zombies AND shifters? Well my fears were for nothing. Once again this author hit it out of the ballpark with a less traditional story…

reviewertoppick2Even if you don’t typically like the zombie apocalypse genre I still think you should give this book a try. It’s not overly violent or graphic and the love story makes it well worth it. (And I mentioned the sex scenes right? Because they were smoking hot.)

See which romantic gay image Google AdWords deemed too “adult”


 

For the past few months, I’ve been running ads through Google AdWords because they sent me an offer for $100 in credit, and I figured why not. When they recently sent an email suggesting I include an image to my ad for free, I followed their instructions to do so. My ads go to my Amazon author page, and AdWords scanned the page for images and then suggested a few ad ideas. I went with one featuring one of my book covers:

semper-fi-web-small

Imagine my surprise when the next day I received this email:

image1(2)

image2(1)

Uh…

ksbp

Really? Semper Fi features an “adult” image? I replied to ask them to tell what, pray tell, is “adult” about an image of two men who are fully clothed and not even kissing. I also mentioned how disappointed I was in Google as a company for these discriminatory standards. Unless there is sexual explicitness, images of LGBT couples are no more “adult” than those of their hetero counterparts. No way would an image of a man and woman in that pose be called “adult.”

A Google AdWords rep replied:

Upon receiving your request, I had reached out to the relevant team team to have a look at the matter. Some good news here – the ad has been re-reviewed and approved! In all likelihood, the ad was incorrectly disapproved or violated policies at the time of initial review. I have added a screenshot of the same for your perusal.

Google, in fact, is an industry leader in promoting diversity not only in the workplace, but outside of it too. I can understand your point of view here but I’d just like to tell you that we believe in removing barriers so Googlers can focus on the things and people they love, and that it’s important to provide benefits that serve the unique needs of our Googlers. Some of our most talked-about benefits include our caregiver leave program and our LGBT policies.

Having said that, we, as a company, thrive on user feedback. I have taken yours into account and will pass it on too!

Well, I hope you do, because that disapproval was a steaming load of bullcrap. You’re on notice, Google.

WWII novel is “full on drama and romance laced with heated erotica”


 

semper-fi-web-200x300 5 stars for this gay WWII romance from Multitasking Mommas:

The journey these two men take, their friendship turning into love, their struggles to make it in the ‘real’ world, all were beautifully and emotionally written…this is not only action packed, this is full on drama and romance laced with heated erotica…
This is an unbelievably beautiful, beautiful, BEAUTIFUL story that should never be missed nor disregarded. This is the one book that has solidified my belief that this author…has a knack for storytelling that is visually erotic, heartbreaking and full of love and hope.

Terrific Amazon accounting tool for indie authors


 

If you’re like me, this is how you feel about the accounting side of being an author:

workaholics-no

Not to mention:

george michael

So imagine my delight when I discovered the Author Earnings Dashboard. This program is such a lifesaver! It’s a Excel doc that automatically parses the Amazon royalty spreadsheets indie authors receive each month. All you need to do is click a few times, and the doc does all the tedious work of breaking down royalties by book and other metrics. It’s easy peasy.

Recently other authors have been talking about Book Report, which is a very stylish way to get automatic breakdowns of the KDP dashboard. While it looks great and does indeed give an instant snapshot of book sales etc. for that day, for me the Author Earnings Dashboard is far more useful. It’s not pretty, but it is damn functional. I don’t find it much of a hassle to check different metrics on my KDP dash. Sure, I have to click a couple things and refresh to see results for individual books, but it’s no big. Combing through the monthly spreadsheet report is a much bigger issue for me. Plus, Book Report charges $10/month. For me it’s not worth it.

The creator of the Author Earnings Dashboard, Michael, made me a version in CAD rather than USD, and was happy to show me how to update the currency rates in the future. This dashboard has saved me SO much time, and it was a one-time fee of $25 very well spent for the pro version. I highly recommend it to indie authors!
