THE BLUE MOON CAFE is Headed to AudioBook!

I've recently signed a contract to have my homophobic werewolf love story, The Blue Moon Cafe, produced as an audio book. Narration will be recorded by DarkFire Productions some time this month and I hope to see the audiobook available very soon. The book won the EPIC eBook Award for best erotic horror and the Rainbow Awards for best paranormal and best overall book.

I owe Lex Valentine a really huge debt of gratitude for the amazing cover art that you see here.

This all got started when a visually-impaired reader wrote to me via Facebook, saying how much she'd love to "read" my work and did I have any in audiobook format. I was sorry to tell her no. The one she most wanted to read was THE BLUE MOON CAFE, so I'm very happy it's the first coming to market.

Here's what The Blue Moon Cafe is about:

Someone—or something—is killing Seattle’s gay men.

A creature moves through the darkest night, lit only by the full moon, taking them, one by one, from the rain city’s gay gathering areas.

Someone—or something—is falling in love with Thad Matthews.

Against a backdrop of horror and fear, young Thad finds his first true love in the most unlikely of places—a new Italian restaurant called The Blue Moon Cafe. Sam is everything Thad has ever dreamed of in a man: compassionate, giving, handsome, and with brown eyes Thad feels he could sink into. And Sam can cook! But as the pair’s love begins to grow, so do the questions and uncertainties, the main one being, why do Sam’s unexplained disappearances always coincide with the full moon?

Prepare yourself for a unique blend of dark suspense and erotic romance with The Blue Moon Cafe, written by the author Unzipped magazine called, “the Stephen King of gay horror.” You’re guaranteed an unforgettable reading experience, one that skillfully blends the hottest romance with the most chilling terror...

Buy the book from the publisher. Or your Kindle. Or your Nook.

  1. I really enjoyed this book, Rick. However, the suspense unnerved me so much I had to put it aside for a time before I had the courage to finish it. And then I read it in daylight.

    Lex's covers are great. She's done several for authors in my RWA group, including one for me for a backlist at a defunct publisher.
