Bluewater Blues by G.B. Gordon #Giveaway @gb_gordon @RiptideBooks

bluewaterblues_600x900blurbJack Daley left his music career behind—along with his domineering father—and is struggling to make a new life for himself and his autistic sister in Bluewater Bay. When a summer storm sweeps a handsome stranger into his general store, Jack is more than ready for a fling. No strings attached, because Jack can’t share the secrets he and his sister are hiding from. Unfortunately, his feelings refuse to stay casual.

Mark Keao is married to his job as a costume designer on Wolf’s Landing. He’s autistic, so he’s used to people not knowing how to interact with him, but that doesn’t mean he wants to be a hermit. Especially when he meets Jack Daley, who dances with brooms, shares his love of the blues, and gets him like no one else. But relationships have proven complicated in the past.

Just when Mark is ready to try anyway, Jack pulls back. But Mark isn’t giving up, and neither is Jack’s sister. And then there’s the music both men love, bringing them together time and again. It will take trust, though, to bring them together for good.

Bluewater Blues is available from Riptide Publishing: http://riptidepublishing.com/titles/bluewater-blues

Interview and #Giveaway: When To Hold Them by @gb_gordon @RiptideBooks

WhenToHoldThem_TourBanner

Interview

Welcome to All I Want and More Books. We’re glad to have you here.

Glad to be here. Thanks for having me.

Tell us a little bit about yourself?

I’m never really sure what’s relevant to that question. So, for what it’s worth: I’m a geek; I’m easily distracted by the shiny; I hate mean, ignorant, and narrow-minded; I love food, leather jackets, and perfect snow days.

In this book, who was your favorite character to write and why?

I liked writing both of them, though Xavier was the one whose head I could get into a little more easily.

What 3 words would you use to describe your main characters?

Xavier is self-reliant, well-educated, and protective

Doran is creative, impulsive, and affectionate

How do you go about picking character names? Do you have to get them just right and make sure they fit with the characters personality?

Yeah, they have to fit (and be reasonably easy to read and tell apart). I go by the character’s cultural background, their parents’ background if I know it, and sometimes the meaning of a name. If it doesn’t feel right it’ll niggle me until I fix it.

We’re cover hussies. What was your first impression of this cover?

Well-met. Background, models … I like all the covers of the series. They give a good glimpse of the story.

What does writing mean to you?

It’s who I am and how I puzzle out the world around me. I can’t not write. Not for any significant stretch of time, anyway. It’s taxing and infuriating, and the best job in the world.

What do you hope readers take away after reading one of your books?

Something positive, something human, and something new.

If you had a technology free day, what would you do?

Go outside, on the trail or in the garden, and breathe.

Quickie Time

Sexiest feature on a wo/man?

Smile

What is on your night stand/dresser?

Books, lube, earplugs 😉

Tattoos or piercings?

Tattoos. Hands down.

Secret talent?

Teaching

What’s your guilty pleasure?

I don’t do guilt in pleasures.

Celebrity crush?

Idris Elba

Night owl or early bird?

Night Owl

Twitter or Facebook?

Twitter

Pinterest or Instagram?

Errr, tumblr. I do have a Pinterest account, though.

ebooks or paperbacks?

Both. Depends on the circumstances and on the book.

Is there anything else you like to add?

Yes: thank you! For having me, for being here, for reading what I wrote.

blurb

WhenToHoldThem_600x900Doran Callaghan doesn’t know when to fold ’em. His gambling has landed him in debt and in jail, and now it’s got him stuck in the sticks in a reintegration program. He wants to turn his life around, but old habits come knocking, and some creditors are harder to shake than others.

Xavier Wagner cares more about the National Park he works in than the people around it, until a stranger awakens desires he didn’t know he had. Doran’s natural submissiveness turns Xavier’s ideas of how to treat a lover upside down. But Doran doesn’t seem to know about boundaries—or even to have any—and Xavier’s not sure that Doran will say no if he needs to. Which means someone’s going to get hurt.

While Xavier struggles with his principles, Doran’s past comes calling. Trusting each other is suddenly a matter of life or death, but Doran has to decide whether counting on Xavier—or himself—is a gamble he’s willing to take.
