Today’s Quickie: My Own Little Sally Field Moment

It’s tough when I’m asked to list my favorite M/M romance authors, because there are so damn many amazing ones in the genre. Hands down though, one of my absolute faves is Sloan Parker, whose novel Breathe completely blew me away the first, second, and third time I read it. Srsly, it’s that good. When you read the blurb you can’t imagine how she’ll pull it off, and then you read the book and you realize that she does it beautifully.

Anyway, Sloan is also an incredibly nice person, and she was generous enough to read and review Amor Prohbido for me. I can’t tell you how great it was to open up my email one morning to find a message from her letting me know how much she enjoyed the book (and the smokin’ hot sex, LOL!). Oh, she liked it! *swoon* Below is the awesome promotional quote she gave me for Amber Allure’s web site:

“Ellis Carrington has created an engrossing story with a fresh voice in the genre. A terrific blend of a broken man’s touching journey and his sizzling chemistry with his Mayan spirit guide. What these two men are willing to do to be together will keep you captivated until the last page.”–Sloan Parker, author of Breathe and More 

Thanks, Sloan!

Romance Trading Card Goodness

I am *totally* jumping on this romance trading card bandwagon that everyone’s getting into. I think it’s a neat idea as an author, and as a reader I think they’re cute as hell. 😉 So I designed a card for my novella, Amor Prohibido, which comes out on September 4th. I will be giving away these away at the upcoming GayRomLit retreat. Thought I’d share:

Coming Soon: Amor Prohibido (Forbidden Love)

This book contains men kissing and hot, explicit guy on guy action plus a little Mayan culture. You should totally buy it.

My debut M/M novella, Amor Prohibido releases September 4th from Amber Allure!

Jacob Freehan has no job, no man, and little motivation. In pain both from ending a long-term abusive relationship and a severe back injury, he escapes to the sunny seaside town of Puerto Morelos for a little yoga, a little R&R, and possibly a place to quietly end his own life.

Pakal is a centuries-old immortal Mayan spirit guide who has been charged with getting Jacob on the path toward healing. Romantic involvement with a spirit charge is strictly forbidden, and it has never been a problem…until now. Pakal sees something special in Jacob, but failure to keep a rapidly-growing attraction at bay could result in Jacob losing his life and Pakal being condemned to Xibalba—the Underworld—forever.
