In this group we provide a lot of opportunity for our fellow authors to promote their books/series/brand. We have several days set aside for them if they want to utilize this platform. Authors, all you have to do is get in touch with Brynn or me to set it up! We'd love to hear from you!
Readers, this is a great place to learn about new books, new authors, or to engage more with a favorite author. It really is an open forum for you to ask questions and be heard. We post when an author is going to have a special day devoted just to them. Watch for these events and join in the fun.
Something new we've started is The Book Club! Our inaugural book is The Brick Yard by Carol Lynne.
The Brick Yard
For Lucky Gunn, the hardest fight of his life happens outside the cage.
On the south side of Chicago sits an old gym called The Brick Yard.
Ten years ago, on a bitterly cold day, Lucky Gunn wandered into The Brick Yard dressed in a threadbare jacket, looking for refuge. He hadn’t expected the owner, Tony Brick, to welcome him with a job and a place to sleep when Lucky’s abusive and drug addicted mother made it too dangerous to return home.
Dray was a gay man living in a world of straight fighters. When his secret was exposed to the media, he dropped out, giving Lucky a piece of advice, if you want to make it as a MMA fighter, bury the part of yourself that won’t be accepted.
Lucky discovered the cage was the perfect place to keep his demons at bay, but when he learns his trainer and mentor, Brick, is suffering from end-stage cancer, he begins to spiral out of control. After eight years, Dray returns to help Lucky and Brick deal with the devastating news.
With Dray so close, Lucky’s old desires return, and Dray teaches him more than how to fight. Torn between his career and the passion he feels for Dray, Lucky finds that his past demons resurface in full force, threatening his sanity and his budding relationship with Dray.
Despite leaving the cage years earlier, Dray finds himself in the battle of his life with the only man he’s ever loved. Will he stand and fight or walk away like he did years earlier?
