Finland postal service to sell Tom of Finland stamps. Can you imagine the right-wing outcry if we did something similar here? http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2014/04/14/two-new-finnish-stamps-feature-homoerotic-themes/?tid=hp_mm

Woke up to a wonderful 4-star review for my HUNGRY FOR LOVE from Boys In Our Books. "What a fabulous treat! Saucy and sweet with a dash of cayenne, it was the perfect mix..." Read the whole review: http://boysinourbooks.com/2014/04/14/review-hungry-for-love-by-rick-r-reed/

Rainbow Gold Reviews gives a rave review to LEGALLY WED! "What I thought was perfect, was the HEA and the multitude of pop culture references throughout the book that had me smiling and laughing throughout...." http://rainbowgoldreviews.wordpress.com/2014/04/08/dana-piazzi-gives-810-pots-of-gold-to-legally-wed-by-rick-r-reed/

Love this! Love is louder.
Mike Magee, a star player for the Chicago Fire and 2013 Major League Soccer MVP, was heckled on Twitter Sunday with an anti-gay slur. His response is beautiful.

Awesome, both Magee's response and Fox's response to the response.  People make mistakes.  It's what they do when the mistake is brought to their attention that really matters.

My "romance with recipes", Dinner at Home, is now available for pre-order on the Dreamspinner Press website. http://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=4967
It only takes a few days for Ollie D'Angelo to lose his boyfriend, his job, and his home. Instead of mourning what he doesn’t have, Ollie celebrates what he does: the freedom to pursue his real passion—cooking. He begins Dinner at Home, a home-catering business, and it takes off. 

Late one night, Ollie catches Hank Mellinger, a streetwise hood down on his luck, about to rob his car. Ollie soon discovers that appearances aren’t necessarily what they seem. Hank isn’t a criminal caught red-handed, but a hungry young man trying to make a life for himself and the four-year-old niece he’s trying desperately to take care of. 

Instead of calling the cops, Ollie offers Hank a job and a way to pull himself up by his bootstraps. Together, they discover they can really cook... and that their shared passion for food just might lead to a passion for each other.

BIG COVER REVEAL! My "romance with recipes" just got a new face, courtesy of cover artist extraordinaire, Reese Dante. I'm just thrilled with it. Here's the blurb for the book, which comes out in May:
