Blog Tour, Excerpt and Giveaway! A New Man by P.D. Singer

P.D Singer is visiting as part of a book blast. She’s sharing a couple of bits of information with us but make sure you check the other blogs taking part in the tour to get more information. Plus there’s a competition. 


A New Man


P.D. Singer

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press

Cover Artist: Reese Dante


Senior year of college is for studying, partying, and having fun before getting serious about life. Instead, Chad’s days are filled with headaches and exhaustion, and his fencing skills are getting worse with practice, not better. Then there’s his nonexistent love life, full of girls he’s shunted to the friend zone. Is he asexual? Gay?

Grad student Warren Douglas could be out clubbing, but his roommate is better company, even without kisses. He’s torn up watching Chad suffer, gobbling ibuprofen and coming home early on Friday nights. If Chad weren’t straight, Warren would keep him up past midnight. They’re great as friends. Benefits might answer Chad’s questions.

A brief encounter with lab rats reveals Chad’s illness—he needs surgery, STAT, and can’t rely on his dysfunctional parents for medical decisions. Warren’s both trustworthy and likely to get overruled—unless they’re married. “You can throw me back later,” Warren says, and he may throw himself back after his husband turns out moody and hard to get along with, no matter how much fun his new sex drive is. Surgery turns Chad into a new man, all right…

…but Warren fell in love with the old one.




On his feet now, Chad looked a little shaky. For a silent moment he stood, though it wasn’t clear whether he was forcing his body to behave or thinking.

“Uh. You’re a scientist…” Why did Chad make that sound like a question? Unless it was part of his medicine head. “I need some data.”

Oh. Oh!

Warren didn’t flinch or pull away when Chad leaned in. Both his hands rested on Warren’s upper arms, which didn’t keep him from lurching forward so fast Warren thought he’d get hit in the face. But no, he stopped short and came in slow for the last inch. Eyes open and questioning, he met Warren’s mouth in a smooth, gentle kiss. Lips not quite parted, he brushed against Warren, searching, not demanding.

What had gotten into him? Warren kissed back, not too startled to respond in kind, adding nothing that might frighten Chad away. He wouldn’t lift his arms, he wouldn’t offer tongue, but he would meet Chad’s mouth for as long as he was offered it. He had to tip his face up slightly and fight to stay in place when he wanted nothing more than to step forward into Chad’s arms, to plaster himself against that inviting chest, and thrust his tongue into the depths of Chad’s mouth.

Chad’s eyes were blue drowning to black, his pupils dilated widely. Questions, but not fear, dwelled behind his irises, questions that Warren wanted to answer for him. Yes, you like this, yes, you want more, yes, you want it with me. Yes.

Quick Facts

P.D. Singer was asked a number of questions. Here’s what we found out. Check the other blogs on the tour to find out more about the author.

Coke or Pepsi? (Or something else.)

I’m not that picky. Is it cold? Is it wet? Is it (preferably not) loaded with sugar?

Sweet or Salty?

Yes. Think chocolate with caramel, lightly salted.

Author Bio

P.D. Singer lives in Colorado with her slightly bemused husband, two rowdy teenage boys, and thirty pounds of cats. She’s a big believer in research, first-hand if possible, so the reader can be quite certain Pam has skied down a mountain face-first, been stepped on by rodeo horses, acquired a potato burn or two, and will never, ever, write a novel that includes sky-diving.

When not writing, playing her fiddle, or skiing, she can be found with a book in hand.

GUEST POST & GIVEAWAY: The Next Call by Sue Brown

Today we are pleased to host Sue Brown, as she releases her new book, The Next Call. Check out her Guest Post below and don’t forget to enter the Giveaway.


Guest Post

When I submitted this story I knew I was taking a risk. The Next Call is not your conventional boy meets boy love story. Nothing about it is conventional. I’m just lucky that Dreamspinner are prepared to take chances with me and I appreciate it very much.

I’ve just answered an interview question on whether where I live affects the way I write. I had to think about that for a while, because I’ve written books set in various places, from the UK and America, to cities and rural ranches.

I think though I’m most comfortable when I’m writing about what I know, which is not exactly unexpected. I live in outer London, a suburban lifestyle. It’s quiet and sedate, not a city buzz or a village life. Life in suburbia can be very anonymous. Most people commute to work, whether into London or another town. If you work all day, often you have no idea who your neighbours are.

Often my ‘towns’ are a mixture of three or four near me. The park in The Sky is Dead is down the road from me. The office building in Ed & Marchant is where my ex works, fifteen miles away from where it’s actually meant to be. The veterinary practice in Hairy Harry’s Car Seat is actually my vets where I take my dogs.

The Next Call is set in Surrey, again the details are fairly anonymous. Maybe one day I’ll take my camera and take you on a tour of my books. It would be fun to show you some of the places that make up my world.

On the blog tour I want to highlight the amazing work LGBT helplines and charities do for people who really need them. I’ve focused on the UK because that is where I live. Please take the time to look at their sites.

This helpline has recently celebrated its fortieth birthday, having been in existence since 1974. It went from 5 hours in the evening to 24 hours a day. The London Lesbian & Gay Switchboard’s (LLGS) information and support helpline has provided support to over 3 million people, and more people seek help from the LGBT community database, They’ve supported people through discriminatory legislation, the AIDS crisis, and the bombing of the Admiral Duncan pub in London to name a few examples.



Mark Grayson volunteers for an LGBT helpline, the same one that helped him through his teenage years. One day he takes a call from “Ricky,” a suicidal man being forced into a marriage he doesn’t want. For weeks Mark talks to Ricky and provides support, but he’s frustrated by the lack of information Ricky provides and the decisions he’s making. In the meantime, Mark starts a relationship with another volunteer. Then tragedy strikes and Mark takes time away from the helpline, but when he comes back, Ricky is waiting. Mark realizes Ricky is stronger than before and their relationship changes, but Mark isn’t sure what their future holds if their relationship is destined to be at the end of the phone.
