Thank you for hosting me today on my blog tour for my newest novella, Picture Winter!
Picture Winter features Ty, a garbage man, and Elias, a successful businessman on his way to becoming the Vice President of the company he works for. Both are Capricorns, but they have nothing in common. Or so they think.
Picture Winter is a 47,000-word novella, and thus is a bit on the insta-lovey side. In keeping with the insta-love theme, I thought I’d share my top 4 insta-love books, in no particular order.
Witness by LA Gilbert: This is one of my favourite re-reads. It’s tooth-achingly sweet, which is what I love about it. Ben and Reece are so adorable together. There’s no action, no over the top drama, no firefights or bombs exploding. It’s all about the romance.
Puppy, Car and Snow by Amy Lane: This is the third book in the Ryan & Scott series, and my favourite of the lot. Shirt, the first book, features a meet-cute between a couple of guys who have an instant bond.
Autoboyography by Christina Lauren: I just read this gem and it was fantastic! A gay kid who’s in the closet only because of the small town he lives in, and a Mormon kid who desperately wants to be himself while staying true to his roots.
The Gifted One by Jacob Z Flores: A lot happens in this book, but the relationship between Matt and Gabriel is heartbreaking and beautiful. The world building is detailed and you won’t see the end coming.
Thanks for reading! Get your copy of Picture Winter from MLR Press, Amazon, or your favourite e-tailer. And don’t forget to enter the giveaway for a free e-copy of one of my books!

Why he looks at his horoscope every day, Elias Hood doesn't know. It's all garbage, and no nickel fortune ever helped him climb all the way up the corporate ladder. He's about to make Vice President. Rocking the boat with "something new" is the last thing on his mind.
But there's this guy.
Ty Green can make friends with a tree and Elias can't help falling for his easy-going vibe and his perfect smile. He's a fellow Capricorn, like Elias, but that's as far as their similarities go. Ty works to live--he doesn't live to work. When Elias takes his horoscope's advice and asks Ty out, both men are in for a shock. But as Elias's walls start to come down, they might just realize that they have more in common than they think. In fact, they might even want the exact same thing.
Who knows? Maybe horoscopes aren't just trash after all.
