Amazon bestseller list & more

After five days of icy streets and cabin fever, the week ends on a high note! Conquering Venus made Amazon's bestseller list for gay titles today, peaking at number 14. There's been an uptick in sales (both print and ebook) and word-of-mouth has picked up again, so although the book has been out for over a year, it continues to find readers. Thanks to everyone who has read the novel and has sent their good wishes as I continue to work on the sequel, Remain in Light.

Speaking of Remain in Light, the Lambda Literary Association mentioned it and the re-issue of Slow To Burn from Seven Kitchens Press this summer in their Book Buzz section. Thanks to Lambda and John Morgan Wilson for the shout out!

Fellow Vanilla Heart Publishing author Janet Lane Walters interviewed me this week for her Eclectic Writer blog and we talked about inspiration, characters and more.  Thanks, JL!

On to poetry: I have two new poems – "Saint Death" and "Victoria Gate" – in the latest issue of online literary magazine Press 1. You can read them at this link.

Last month, the wonderful poet Nic Sebastian asked me to donate a poem for her latest online venture, Voice Alpha. Poets working to improve their reading skills record a donated poem and then receive critiques. I donated "Wonder Woman" and enjoyed hearing all the different interpretations. I also gave my own take on the poem. You can hear all the poems and read the critiques as this link.

I'll be posting a new vlog on Sunday.

Thanks for being such a terrific part of the Voice Alpha experiment, Collin! We are always looking for guest bloggers there, so do bear us in mind if you feel any urge to write anything related to reading poetry aloud for an audience. Best, Nic
Congratulations on making the Amazon list at 14 - and I am sure it is 'with a bullet!'

Congrats on the Amazon ranking! All due of course to a scintillating interview on GPB :-)
