**A big TCO welcome to Jeff Adams on our next stop on the GRL 2016 Blog Tour. So glad he could stop by, and can’t wait to meet him at GRL in Kansas City.
Hello! First off, a huge thanks to Two Chicks Obsessed with Books and Eye Candy for hosting me on the 2016 GRL Blog Tour. I’m happy to be here.
This will be my fifth GRL and my second as a featured author. This year I’m doing more than ever before at the conference, which is a little scary.
I’m on a panel alongside Stephani Hecht and Wade Kelly and it’s going to be tough not just being a total fanboy sitting next to them. Stephani is an author I stalked at my first GRL because I loved her Blue Line Hockey books, and now I’m sitting on a panel with her (how did that happen?!?). And, Wade Kelly, well she’s an awesome person and writer and I’m a huge fan. Our panel focuses on research and what we each do to make sure our books are realistic and accurate. It’s going to be fun time and there’ll be prizes so make sure if your at GRL to come see us.
I’m also taking part in the Fun Fair on Friday afternoon. I’ll be one of ten authors participating in Daring Author Trivia where we’ll play a fun-filled take on a classic TV game show (legally we can’t use its name—but you’ll catch on quick to what it is) and we’ll do some Truth or Dare too. It’s a chance for everyone to learn more about the authors. I’m excited as it’s way outside my comfort zone to do something like this, but I think it’s going to be a good time for me and for the people who come play with us. There are an array great prizes to be won so if you’re at GRL come see us Friday afternoon.
Speaking of prizes, I’m giving away a pretty big one myself: a seven-inch Fire tablet with my books on it. I’ll sign people up for the chance to win from the time I arrive at the hotel through Saturday night. Sunday morning I’ll draw the winner. All you have to do to enter is ask to sign up when you see me. I’ll have you enter your email into my iPad or phone and then I’ll send an email Sunday morning to whoever wins (and if you’re still at GRL I’ll give you the tablet, otherwise I’ll mail it out once I get home).
Another new thing this year is I’m also on the “blogger” side of things, too. Last November, my husband, Will, and I started Jeff & Will’s Big Gay Fiction Podcast. So we’ll be talking about the podcast as well, doing some interviews while we’re on site and maybe even doing some Facebook Live segments so folks who aren’t at GRL can get a taste of what’s going on. And leading up to GRL, it’s been great fun hosting authors on the show for GRL Blog Tour stops.
All of this is what makes GRL so great. Participating in the activities, having conversations with other attendees, catching up with people you only see in person once a year and—of course, meeting new people. For me, it’s also about putting myself out there too which is why I’m involved in more and different things this year. Make sure to say hi, especially if you’re new to GRL because it’ll be great to get to know you.
Simon Roberts and Alex Miller could never have known that from the moment of their first kiss that they were embarking on the love of a lifetime. The Hat Trick Box Set is their story, as told by Simon, from their senior year of high school through college graduation and beyond.
This box set includes all 6 stories in 1 ebook download!
The box set includes Hat Trick, Hat Trick Overtime: A Classic Winter’s Night, Hat Trick 2: Playing the Rebound, Hat Trick Overtime: Summer Camp, Hat Trick 3: Penalty Shot and Hat Trick Overtime: Reunion.
Jeff’s written stories since he was in middle school and became a gay romance writer in 2009 when his first short stories were published. Since then he’s written several more shorts and novels, including some in the young adult genre, and he plans to keep writing as long as wonderful readers keeping picking up his books.
Jeff lives in rural Northern California with his husband of twenty years, Will. Some of his favorite things include the musicals Rent and [title of show], the Detroit Red Wings and Pittsburgh Penguins hockey teams, and the reality TV competition So You Think You Can Dance. If forced to pick his favorite book it would be a tie between Michael Chabon’s The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay and David Levithan’s Every Day.
Jeff is also the co-host of Jeff & Will’s Big Gay Fiction Podcast.
