    Luckily, I follow Erastes on Live Journal, or I might not ever have heard of this site. It looks as if you might be able to turn me on to some good male/male novels that aren’t necessarily romances, which (honestly) pretty much bore me to tears. That’s a huge blog hop, but I’m looking forward to tackling it little by little, and maybe finding some new authors.

  2. Wow! This is an amazing hop! I can’t believe how many great authors and publishers are participating!

    Thank you for putting this together and congrats on the new review site!

  3. Thank you, thank you for this opportunity to speak about what writing in this genre means. Amazing job, lovely to be able to participate, and enjoying the heck out of myself so far.

    Like blogger MA Church, I got so bored with reg boy/girl erotica and love stories. Reading about the boys opened my world and imagination to a whole new world. Not only was it hot reads but I learned so much about the gay community that I never knew existed. I’ve read some amazing writers andi glad there’s yet another place for us to spread the word on how amazing some of them are.

  31. Great hop! Lots to discover!

  32. I have really enjoyed participating and “hopping” to all the various websites! So much insight into some of my favorite writers – and many new ones I’ve discovered. Thanks Rainbow Book Reviews for providing this awesome opportunity!

  33. Just been linked to the hop, and found some excellent posts already.

  34. Thanks so much for doing this!!

  35. I’m having so much fun on the hop! I’m about halfway and have found some great new authors (to me) and some really stunning blogs.
    Thanks for organising this!

     /  August 26, 2012

    I was not able to post on all the authors sites (if they did not have an option of Name for how to post), but I really enjoyed reading all the posts, some amazing stories out there of how people started writing, not to mention all the new books you end up adding to the “to buy” and/or “to-read” pile!!!!

    Thanks for organizing the hop, I’ve seen the reviews via Serena’s posts on Twitter, Lena’s on Goodreads so I have the web site and blog on my favorites list now!

    All the best on the new site, I’ll definitely be following!


    • Diane A – I’ve included your comment on my blog and you are in the drawing for my ebook give-a-way…thanks for participating and sharing your thoughts!


  45. Thanks for putting this all together. Loving meeting all these people! I just got my very first Kindle for my birthday in June — it’s gonna fill up fast!
