Hijacking Jayson James' Blog -- Welcome, Nerd Alert Book Love Blog Hop!
“Ha! Ha! We did it!”
“So we hijacked Jayson James' Blog.” I said back. “What are we going to write about?”
“Anything we want. We just need to get it written and posted quick.”
I shrugged, “I don’t know what to write about.”
“Derrick Wilson, think people will enjoy whatever we write.” Justin Parker, my boyfriend, bobbed his eyebrows at me while sitting next to me on the bed. This was something that always gets me.
“Extraordinary. My extraordinary boyfriend.” Looking over at Justin, he was grinning.
I shook my head in disagreement, “Although it is true, I am not going to put that.”
He insisted, “Come on! Why not?”
“It’s gay.” I bit my lip.
His jaw dropped. His silence was brief, “We are gay.”
We both started to cackle and laughed ourselves into hysterics, nearly knocking my laptop onto the floor.
“All right! Time to get our shit together.” Justin so eloquently put it. “Time to get our asses in gear.”
I put my hand up, signaling him to stop, “Whoa! You cannot talk like that here.”
“What? Why the fu…“ Justin was silenced with my pointer finger being gently pressed on his lips. He scowled at me. I removed my finger and he was talking again, “Okay! Down to business here.” He grinned at me, “Then we can…”
It only took a scowl to silence him. I winked at him and nodded my head in agreement. That was all he needed. I suggested, “Let’s talk about the books, Jayson and upcoming projects.”
Justin grinned, “Great idea!”
“Then why don’t you start us off?”
“Finding Our Way is the first book. When it was written there was no thought given to writing a series. It was our story of two best of friends who discover during their junior year that they are both gay and in love with each other.” Justin was on a role, “Next came Tormented Discovery, which was going to be written and shelved until after the release of several other books. Although there were some loose ends left in the first book, the thought was the book could wait. By this time, readers were reading and asking for more. The decision was made to publish book two and then move onto another book. There were concerns about being pigeonholed or being thought of as a one trick pony.” He took a quick breath, “The idea for Drifting was already bubbling over and had to be written out. The idea of two boyfriends past the honeymoon phase and thinking it might be time to call it quits is something rarely seen in M/M books. The story itself was one that had long been waiting to be told. It seemed to be a great way to end off the series. Thus, a series was written. Readers have fallen in love with the characters and are still asking for more.”
He looked to me. It caught me off guard for a moment and then I had an idea, “In works is a book with Tyson and Tyler Hensley, the twins. A couple of years ago, Jayson James started writing a book with these two in it. The story takes place in Tyson and Tyler’s middle school years, prior to meeting Justin and myself. It will be filled with lots of antics from the twins and I am sure will have plenty of laughs.”
Justin was ready to speak, “Prior to that, will be the release of TED. TED is the story of Tim, Eric and Delsin. Tim is kid that is trying his best to survive high school, which would be easier if he was not constantly being bullied. Eric is the resident tough guy, with many secrets to hide from being who is to being bullied himself. Delsin knows he’s gay, but he’s not ready for his family, friends or anyone else to know. Please be sure to comment on this post for a chance to win an ARC of TED.”
I looked at Justin, unsure of what to say. He grinned, picking up a book and holding up a dollar bill next to it. Then it clicked for me, “If you have not read any of our books, be sure to pick up the Finding Our Way Series Collection available for a limited time. You can purchase it on Amazon by clicking on any of the titles or by going to Smashwords. It is like buying two books and getting the third free.”
Justin put his head on my shoulder. I put my head on his. We sat for a moment before Justin reached over and put his hand on my leg. I in turn put my hand on his. He turned towards me and moved his face close to mine.
