October Prism Recommended Reads ~ Congratulations Authors ~ with Giveaway

October Prism Recommended Read Awards. Authors, you may use the following graphic in conjunction with any title appearing on the monthly list, indefinitely.

These are chosen by us, the reviewers of Prism Book Alliance™.  It is a way to recognize those authors whose work sticks with us.  Those who go above and beyond.



So without further ado… Congratulations to October Prism Recommended Reads.

Then the Stars Fall by Brandon Witt: Beautifully drawn characters, central family themes, and a sweet, tender romance make this a perfect read not just for fall, but any time of year
Two Red Leaves by Sherrie Henry: The New Adult sequel to Henry’s beautiful YA love story, The Last of the Summer Tomatoes, Two Red Leaves follows two men you already love as they try to make a go of love and life together.  They aren’t perfect, but the the story is well told and a must read.
The Last Grand Master by Andrew Q Gordon: The Last Grand Master has stuck with me since I read it.  It is a beautiful fantasy with a wizard, seven realms, and a little bit of love.  It is the start of a series and I eagerly await the next installment.
Who Knows the Storm by Tere Michaels: The first in a new series from the author that brought us one of my favorite couples in M/M, Evan & Matt.  Who Knows the Storm shows us that Michaels has what it takes to stay a force in this genre.  Once again, I am eagerly anticipating the next in this series.
Seidman by James Erich: Fabulous fantasy tale based in Icelandic lore.  Erich is able to draw you in to the Viking Age and you just have to hang on for the ride.
When You Were Pixels by Julio-Alexi Genao: Some things are worth waiting for, some things are worth dying for, and some things are worth the pain of waking up without his memories, hoping his heart will remember that he’s not alone, that he has you.
Sacrificed by Bey Deckard: Sacrificed is as swashbuckling and feverishly paced as Caged.
The Way Home by Anastasia Vitsky: The first of, hopefully, many f/f recommended reads here on Prism.  Ameliah says “I even dreamed about this tale.”
Most Beautiful Words by Raine O’Tierney: Most Beautiful Words is a story that will take your breath away as you experience the love of two men who defy society’s norms and time to claim each other’s hearts, the all-encompassing grief of inexplicable loss, and the power of friendship and some familial relationships.
Grif’s Toy by Joseph Lance Tonlet: I love finding new authors and this is a fantastic debut novel for Joseph. If its hot smoking men you want with a unique story line give this one a try!
Beneath The Stain – Parts 1 to 7 by Amy Lane: This is the first time I have read a serial and the waiting for a week to pass for the next part to be published was a killer!! Amy Lane weaves her magic again in a story full of angst that will have you laughing and crying all the way through for these beautiful boys she has created.
Between Good & Evil by LM Brown: Angels and Demons are not my thing but this may just be the book to change my mind! This is a scorching hot menage with a good story line and plot that you will not be able to put down!
Authors Gone Wild! by JP Barnaby, Sara York, Ethan Stone, William Cooper, and Brandon Witt: This was a well executed collection of pure erotic fun. Worth the read when you are looking for smut.
Faith & Fidelity 2nd ed. (Faith, Love, and Devotion #1) by Tere Michaels: This was such an emotional tale that pulled me in from the start. I enjoyed every minute and am looking forward to more.
Nelson & Caleb (Storming Love: One Storm, Twelve Men #5) by Kaje Harper: I want a Caleb. I loved reading this story about Nelson and the man who showed him that there can be complete acceptance for everyone. I want a Caleb!
A Taste of Copper by Elin Gregory: It’s uniquely different and really shouldn’t be missed. It’s also a beautiful taste of Elin Gregory’s writing for anyone unfamiliar with her work.
Walk A Mile by Sarah Madison: This story gripped our reviewer almost from the very beginning. She found herself completely captivated by surprising twists and turns of events, and she admired the consistent implementation of a refreshingly new and unique ( at least to her) plot idea.
Prosperity by Alexis Hall: From the unique narrative voice, to the colorful characters, this is a steampunk novel of supreme confidence. The language is to be savored and enjoyed as much as the elegant plotline.
Wave Goodbye to CharlieI want everyone to know that this is a beautiful, thought provoking novel worth shouting from the roof about…

She started reading M/M Romance and Gay fiction in early 2012 and was quickly hooked. In her first 18 months as a M/M Romance fan, she read over 900 titles in the genre (not counting re-reads), ranging from shorts to epic novels. She reads across all tropes within the Gay Fiction genre…. except Regency, she has never found a love for Regency. A native Texan she finds Texas to the be almost perfect… except for one thing, their treatment of the GLBTQ community. This blog is her brain child and she is happy to welcome some fellow GLBTQ supporters to review here and help promote equality (oh and of course fangirl/fanboy over their favorite authors and works).
