Rachel Haimowitz talks Anchored ~ Spotlight, Giveaway

Prism Book Alliance would like to thank Rachel Haimowitz for taking the time to talk with us today.


Title: Anchored
Author: Rachel Haimowitz
Publisher: Riptide

Welcome to the Belonging ’Verse re-release blog tour with Aleksandr Voinov and Rachel Haimowitz! We’re very excited to be bringing you edited second editions of our Belonging stories, Anchored and Counterpunch (in the case of Anchored, very edited, with over ten thousand new words and a completely different beginning and ending!), which are finally under the same roof and back in print after about a year out of circulation.

We’ll be touring for about two weeks, Aleks will be back on Prism on 17 September discussing his slave boxer and the barrister who tries to free him, and Rachel talking about her slave news anchor and the talk show host who covets him, and both of us discussing the world of Belonging at large—which, as you’ve probably guessed, is not a particularly pretty place. But good things can and do happen in this world, and we hope you’ll stick with us to find out what!

Speaking of good things, don’t forget to comment on this post for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the Riptide store! Each new post you comment on earns you an entry into the drawing, so be sure to check out the rest of the tour schedule too!


Network news anchor Daniel Halstrom is at the top of his field, but being at the bottom of the social ladder—being a slave—makes that hard to enjoy. Especially when NewWorld Media, the company that’s owned him since childhood, decides to lease him privately on evenings and weekends to boost their flagging profits.

Daniel’s not stupid; he knows there’s only one reason someone would pay so much for what little free time he has. But dark memories of past sexual service leave him certain he won’t survive it again with his sanity intact.

He finds himself in the home of Carl Whitman, a talk show host whose words fail him when it comes to ordering Daniel into his bed. Carl can’t seem to take what he must want, and Daniel’s not willing to give it freely. His recalcitrance costs him dearly, but with patience and some hard-won understanding, affection just might flourish over fear and pain. Carl holds the power to be an anchor in Daniel’s turbulent life, but if he isn’t careful, he’ll end up the weight that sinks his slave for good.

Prism recently reviewed Anchored. You can find the review here.

About the Author:

Rachel Haimowitz is an M/M erotic romance author and the Publisher of Riptide Publishing. She’s also a sadist with a pesky conscience, shamelessly silly, and quite proudly pervish. Fortunately, all those things make writing a lot more fun for her . . . if not so much for her characters.

When she’s not writing about hot guys getting it on (or just plain getting it; her characters rarely escape a story unscathed), she loves to read, hike, camp, sing, perform in community theater, and glue captions to cats. She also has a particular fondness for her very needy dog, her even needier cat, and shouting at kids to get off her lawn.

  1. *waves wildly at everyone* Thanks so much for stopping by and for commenting on the tour, and a huge thanks to our lovey host! I’m so glad to hear all the love for the cover art, too, which was done by the brilliant Tami Santarossa (who Tumblr fans of Supernatural will likely recognize as the amazing fanartist @littleskrib). Good luck to everyone in the contest!

  2. I’ve read many of Rachel’s books (most recently The Flesh Cartel). Look forward to reading about the Belonging world. Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. Can’t wait to read the re-release of Anchored. I’m a big fan of Rachel’s writing. Thanks for the giveaway. ardent(dot)ereader(at)gmail(dot)com
