“Undercover Boyfriend” Mini-Author Reading #9

It’s hard to believe that today I’ll be sharing my final mini-author reading from Undercover Boyfriend. It seems like just yesterday I started the blog tour and now here we are on the next to the last day of the tour. It’s been fun, and I’ve stopped at some truly wonderful places. Thank you to everyone who’s come along for the ride. Thankfully, though, the ride isn’t over yet, so here is the last mini-author reading.

I hope you enjoy this glimpse into Marty and Luke’s world.

Blurb:

Marty Valdez is in serious trouble. His sister’s wedding is around the corner, and everyone expects to meet Marty’s super-successful underwear model boyfriend—who Marty invented. Now Marty has to produce a half-naked hottie or suffer the worst humiliation of his life.

FBI agent Luke Myers is in serious trouble. He’s been working undercover to take down a dangerous drug cartel, but his cover’s blown and he needs to disappear. Luckily, a geeky yet intriguing comic book artist gives him the perfect opportunity. Luke just has to pretend to be his boyfriend, and pretending is what he does best. But between Marty’s mother and his ex, Luke might’ve bitten off more than he can chew, and Marty’s knack for finding trouble might ruin more than just his sister’s wedding.

Top 5 Favorite Superheroes

Hi, everyone! It’s time for the latest stop on my blog tour, promoting my recent release Undercover Boyfriend, the first book in my One Fine Day series.

The books in this series all center on the theme of marriage. In each book, readers will be introduced to a new set of characters, who will face a different set of complications. The glue that ties the books together is a wedding or marriage. This means, readers can pick up any book in the series and immerse themselves in the world without feeling as if they have to go back to the first book.

So now that I’ve told you a little bit about the series itself, let’s talk about comic book characters. Now why in the world would I want to do that? Well, Marty Valdez, one of the main characters in Undercover Boyfriend is a comic book enthusiast.

Okay, that might be putting it a bit mildly. He is obsessed with comic books. Not only does Marty want to make a living as a comic book artist, but his entire life revolves around superheroes. He peppers his dialogue with superhero references and even devotes most of his wardrobe to superhero-inspired graphic tees.

So to introduce you to Marty and the kind of guy he is, I figured it would be fun if I had Marty himself discuss his Top 5 Favorite Comic Book Heroes. I hope you’re all ready because I’m handing the keyboard over to him right now.

What’s up, everybody? When Jacob told me I’d be putting in an appearance here at his blog, I have to admit, I got a bit nervous. I’m not really good in front of large crowds. What can I say? I’m a real introvert, and I mean like excessively so, like having to talk to new people makes me sweat though my underwear, not that you wanted to know that or anything, because I know you don’t. I also find that I tend to say inappropriate things and ramble when I’m uneasy, I guess kinda like I’m doing now. I’m like the Flash, but instead of running real fast, I talk real fast and most people just can’t keep up. Know what I mean?

Anyway, I didn’t know what I was going to do or say here, but then Jacob told me I’d be sharing my favorite superheroes with you to break the ice, and I was like, whoa! I can talk about comic books all day long. So who makes my list? Well, here you go.

#5—Green Lantern

 4941845-5672237426-GreenWho doesn’t like the idea of some intergalactic power ring wearing police force that patrols the universe? I mean, these guys and gals aren’t issued a badge or a gun. They get a freaking power ring that is capable of creating any construct the ring-bearer can imagine. How cool is that?

The great thing about Green Lantern is that you don’t have to be the strongest guy in the class. What you need to be is the smartest, the most creative, and for a skinny guy like me, talk about a win!

#4—Wonder Woman

10544550_hi

Princess Diana is the bomb! She’s an Amazon warrior princess who’s got super strength, super speed, magic bracelets, a cool tiara, and a freaking magic lasso. Plus, she gets to pal around with the Greek pantheon. Okay, sure, those gods can be jerks sometimes and send her on insanely impossible quests, but she gets to actually have conversations with the likes of Zeus and Athena. I’d love to have a powwow with them as long as they didn’t turn me into a sheep or anything like that. Those Greek gods can be a bit touchy sometimes. Yeesh!

#3—Superman

3164668-superman.jpg

Okay, like most people, I’ve always loved Supes, that big ol’ Boy Scout. Not only does he have all those powers, but he’s probably like the most moral person on the planet. Literally, he could squash someone like a bug if he wanted to, but he doesn’t. He’s got this strong moral compass that I’ve always admired. He looks out for the little guy and always does what’s right. What’s not to like about that, right?

#2—Robin (Tim Drake)

200px-Robin2Some people might find it weird that Robin is one of my favorite heroes of all time because he’s just the Boy Wonder, the character forever in the shadow of the bat, but that’s what I admire about Robin, especially when Tim Drake wore the outfit. The first Robin, Dick Grayson, was too much of a joker as a teen. Holy Headache, Batman! That kid got annoying real fast, and Jason Todd, who replaced him, never really fit in, but Tim, man, Tim was able to figure out, all by himself, that Bruce Wayne was Batman. Can you even imagine that?

Tim Drake was the first Robin to step out of Batman’s shadow, and if you’ve ever read a Batman comic book or watched one of his movies, you know how long of a shadow Batman casts. That’s truly admirable in my opinion.

#1—Batman

4978219-4440144695-21085

And of course, my favorite superhero of all time, is the Batman himself. What’s truly great about Batman is that he can hold his own against super powered bad guys, using only his brains and his devices. He’s taken on villains that have toppled Superman and Wonder Woman and won based on his smarts alone. To me, that’s the true definition of a hero—being an ordinary guy who’s able to stand up against the more extraordinary.

So that’s my top 5 favorite superheroes of all time. I hope you agree with at least some of my choices, and if not, what are some of yours? I’d love to talk about them because like I said, I can talk about comic book characters all day long.

Undercover Boyfriend Blurb:

Undercover Boyfriend

Marty Valdez is in serious trouble. His sister’s wedding is around the corner, and everyone expects to meet Marty’s super-successful underwear model boyfriend—whom Marty invented. Now Marty has to produce a half-naked hottie or suffer the worst humiliation of his life.

FBI agent Luke Myers is in serious trouble. He’s been working undercover to take down a dangerous drug cartel, but his cover’s blown and he needs to disappear. Luckily, a geeky yet intriguing comic book artist gives him the perfect opportunity. Luke just has to pretend to be his boyfriend, and pretending is what he does best.

“Undercover Boyfriend” Month Long Promo Tour

It’s finally here! The first week of the Undercover Boyfriend month long promotional tour begins at last! While the book isn’t set to release until June 15 from Dreamspinner’s new imprint, Dreamspun Desires, I’m staring the celebration early and lasting for 30 whole days. I’ll talk more about that in a little bit.

Right now, I want to talk about the book.

I can’t tell you how excited I am. This book was truly a pleasure to write, and the main characters took me to some rather interesting and comical places. The book also represents the first book of a brand new series titled One Fine Day, and the theme for the series is–weddings! Who doesn’t love a good wedding? I know I do. They’re filled with love, romance, good times, and in some cases, drama. Let’s face it, we all love a healthy combination of all four in the books we love to read.

So to kick off the Undercover Boyfriend blog tour, I’m starting with a cover reveal across social media and here on my blog. Are you ready?

Isn’t it gorgeous? The folks over at Dreamspinner are definitely talented, and I’ve never been disappointed by one of their covers. So thank you to Bree Archer, who put this together for me!

If the cover snagged your attention and you’re interested in learning a bit more about the book, here’s the blurb:

Undercover Boyfriend

A One Fine Day Novel

Two men, one lie, and a whole bunch of trouble.

Marty Valdez is in serious trouble. His sister’s wedding is around the corner, and everyone expects to meet Marty’s super-successful underwear model boyfriend—whom Marty invented. Now Marty has to produce a half-naked hottie or suffer the worst humiliation of his life.

FBI agent Luke Myers is in serious trouble. He’s been working undercover to take down a dangerous drug cartel, but his cover’s blown and he needs to disappear. Luckily, a geeky yet intriguing comic book artist gives him the perfect opportunity. Luke just has to pretend to be his boyfriend, and pretending is what he does best. But between Marty’s mother and his ex, Luke might’ve bitten off more than he can chew, and Marty’s knack for finding trouble might ruin more than just his sister’s wedding.

I hope you enjoyed the cover and the blurb, and if you’re interested in learning more about the tour, well, then you’ve come to the right place.

Over the next 30 days, I’ll be sharing content at numerous blogs; some will also be on my various social media–Facebook, Twitter, and Google+, so if you’re not connected with me on all three, now might be a good time to start because what I share on one social media site won’t be shared on the others.

To help you find the content, I’ll be providing a weekly list of dates and where I’ll be sharing the goodies. Here’s the list for Week 1!

Announcing the “Soul Struck” Month Long Blog Tour–December 1-December 31

Can you believe it? On December 14, the third book of the Warlock Brothers of Havenbridge series, Soul Struck, releases, and Pierce Blackmoor, Mason and Thad’s older brother, snags the role of the main character away from his younger brothers. Believe me when I say there was much complaining about this from Mason and Thad.

In Soul Struck, we travel even farther into the shadows and secrets that have hounded our characters in the first two books as well as bring to close the first (yes, the first!) story arc of this series while also setting up the new story arc that will begin in book four. As if that isn’t enough, we also get to meet the young man who forever changes the way Pierce views the world.

In case you haven’t seen the cover for Soul Struck yet, here it is!

SoulStruckFS3

Isn’t it gorgeous? It was created by Dreamspinner’s own Paul Richmond, who I am forever indebted to for creating such beautiful covers for this series.

To celebrate the release of Soul Struck, I will be on a month long whirlwind tour that will include both pre-release and post-release stops. I’ll be sharing graphics, blog posts, and mini-author readings that will hopefully whet your appetite for Pierce and his story. The content will be shared on my social media (so if you aren’t following me on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+, now is the time to start) and other blog sites that have generously agreed to host me on my tour. Starting tomorrow, you can find more information over at my Havenbridge site, which is dedicated to the world of the Warlock Brothers of Havenbridge. You can be magically teleported over to that site by clicking here.

Also, I will be hosting a giveaway at special stops along my blog tour. Readers have several chances to win a free ebook from my backlist as well as enter to with the grand prize award–a $50 gift card to Amazon.

I will be providing a list of dates over at my Havenbridge site, so make sure you check there every week, but for now, here are the stops for week 1.
