Prism Book Alliance® would like to thank EAB for stopping by today. Please give them a warm welcome.
Title: Black Snow
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Cover Artist: J-Witless
Genre: Fantasy, Gay Romance
Release Date: 11/07/2016
Prince Brier Snow has lived in the shadow of King Snow’s exalted memory. However, his fate changes when he nears his majority and Lirend’s steward queen attempts to dethrone him by exploiting an obscure requirement in the late king’s will: a yearlong sabbatical.
Brier travels to the desolate land of Aire to train under the Ceve guild, scorned refugees of war, including their guarded leader, Roland. Brier’s skillful master unlocks hidden potential, and what begins as a dutiful bond turns into ill-fated affection. When Brier returns to the capital, he’s carrying proof of his indiscretions with Roland—and his condition grows more apparent with each passing day. An affair with the huntsman is a scandal Brier’s enemies can use against him, but the birth of an heir is a burden even Brier is not sure he can bear.
Roland Archer, a man with a murky past, is skeptical of the contract to train the prince but willing to do anything for the guild’s freedom. Despite his best intentions, he is smitten by Lirend’s future king. Roland has resigned himself to solitude, but fate has other plans—for him, for Brier, and for Lirend’s oppressed subjects. Can Roland help Brier face a power-hungry queen and a country torn asunder? Either they will bring equality to a land that desperately needs it, or they’ll be thwarted by cunning enemies and an illusory curse.
Black Snow Beginnings!
I want to thank Dreamspinner Press for publishing Black Snow and Prism Alliance for hosting me here today. I just came off a 6 day trip so if I start rambling hit me with a text book over the head, and tell me to shut up.
I’ll start with telling you a secret. I was very nervous about submitting my manuscript to Dreamspinner. I’d never read another male pregnancy (m-preg) story from their press, and I worried that they wouldn’t accept it. The m-preg genre is a loyal one, but with few followers. In addition to that, most of the novels written with m-preg aren’t very appealing to m/m readers. I wanted to change that. I wanted Black Snow to have equal parts romance, drama and political intrigue. I wanted to create a male character who conceived, but who also kept his masculinity and his strength. I also wanted to give m-preg lovers a novel they could read many times over, focusing on the pregnancy and family aspects of the genre.
Fortunately for me, Dreamspinner accepted Black Snow and I’ve had the pleasure to work with them through the editing process. It’s been a great ride, and I’m so glad I’m able to share Brier and Roland’s journey with you all. My hope is that I’ve made readers feel as attached to these characters as I am, and that their story will be forever remembered as it was intended; a fairy tale romance, and an everlasting love story.
Thanks to all for reading,
