Cover Reveal!

I'm super excited to be able to reveal the cover for my M/M erotic short with Musa Publishing! No worries, I'm not gonna drag it out and make you wait ;P

Behold, the cover for HAPPY HOUR:

I must admit, I'm loving it! Green happens to be my favorite color, so that part is a huge plus. And the dark-haired guy in the forefront? Um, hello, hottie!
As a side note, how about a little blurbage? Yeah? Okay it is:

Sal has spent three years serving drinks behind the bar and servicing guys in the back room. It’s been a nice gig, one Sal has enjoyed. But things change the night hot-as-hell Matt walks in and takes a seat. 

Sal is instantly drawn to Matt, more than any guy before him. He’s gorgeous, sexy, commanding—and Sal can’t stop himself from going for it. The two men are on each other in a flash, sharing in a frenzied lust that culminates in immense pleasure for them both.

But Sal has made a mistake.  He isn’t supposed to go all the way. Going all the way means trouble. And Sal can’t have any more trouble.

Now he must do the one thing he hates most—the one thing he can never take back.

Please, let me know what think of the HAPPY HOUR cover and blurb!

A M/M must read!

Okay folks, as I say in that little description on the left, I'll be showcasing some amazing M/M stories right here on the ol' blog. And today, I've got a really good one for ya. It's by a fellow Musa author (no bias here, though. I calls 'em as I sees 'em.) and it is an excellent story. Well written, great characters, fast plot...the Trifecta. 

Please visit the Musa Publishing website and check out this excellent release, as well as all the rest of their exciting LGBT titles and many, many more genres filled with great reads!

A Cornwall Novella: Dudleytown
by LB Gregg

College sophomore Alexander Strauss has one rule: no messing around with straight guys. Especially not his mouthwatering roommate, Shannon. When their ride share drives off the side of a mountain, the two young men find themselves deep in an uninhabited forest searching for their missing friend. Wandering the famously cursed grounds of Dudleytown, Alex figures something truly unholy must be at play, because only insanity could tempt him to break his cardinal rule.

Score one for the boys!

So if you are of the gay persuasion as I am, then you surely know the subject of today's post. However, you may not be aware that after months (maybe even years) of speculation and rumors, said subject has confirmed what we all had hoped.

Matt Bomer came out.

Oh yes, that Matt Bomer. As in...

Beautiful, yes? I agree. Those eyes. That hair. That face. Those eyes. ;-P
So in honor of Mr. Bomer's coming out, here's some more sinfully delicious eye candy. You're welcome.

 I think scruffy is just as good--maybe even better

 Even black/white looks good. Hello, chest.


Holy abs, Batman. Look good enough to lick, right?

Should be a sin.

hello, world

As you can see by the lack of any before it, this is my very first blog post--and I must say, the world of blogging is much quieter than I had anticipated. Hmm...must be a game on.

What does one say in their inaugural post? Think, JD, think.

Oh, I know. How about a little of what you can expect to find here. Does that sound good? Cool.

So, if you avert your eyes to the top of this blog, you'll notice the title: JD Barrett, m/m erotica author. Now, I'd like to point out two things:

Number One - M/M For those of you in-the-know, kudos. But for those of you who may have stumbled onto my little virtual island in their quest for M & Ms, let me explain. You see, sometimes boys like girls. And sometimes, girls like boys. But alas, there are those times when boys like boys and girls like girls. This here blog is dedicated to those of us in the Boy-on-Boy persuasion--hence the M/M. Confused? Here, maybe this'll help:

A fine example of M/M, if you ask me

Got it? Good, let's move on.

Number Two - Erotica. Now, this one should be pretty self-explanatory--especially for anyone over the age of, say, fifteen (yes, it seems young...but times, they are a-changin'). For those of you who are familiar with this term, welcome. For those of you who were deep into Google searches for erosion, my apologies. This blog is NOT about erosion. It is, however, about Erotica. It is about steamy, sexy, raunchy, descriptive sex. Yes, you shy folks out there...I said S. E. X.  What type of sex? See Number One. Or better yet, see below:

A very fine example of M/M sex, in my opinion

Understand yet? Man, I hope so. Okay, moving on.

I must also declare that, as a M/M Erotica Author (remember that blog title at the top? yep, that's me) I do enjoy images like the ones you've seen here today--and like the one you see in the background (isn't he lovely?). And at any given time, said images will pop up on the now:

One last example of excellent M/M, no?

Please don't act so stunned. I clearly stated above the two key elements of this blog: M/M and EROTICA. If this image is disturbing, then this definitely isn't the site for you. (because trust me, there's gonna be lots of images like this!)

In closing, I do hope you have enjoyed perusing this post today (for all you M/M erotica lovers out there, you're welcome), and I also hope you will stop by often. And please, feel free to share your thoughts on M/M, Erotica, the hot images I'll be throwing at ya, and oh yeah...Writing (can't believe I forgot about that Author bit. Geesh.)
