New Release: The Course of True Love--Win a FREE, Signed Copy!

And we have our winners! Congratulations to the following people below (I will be in touch with you about sending out the books today):
Louis Pape
Madison Parker
PR Leary
Zach Sweets
Clara Claverly

Please remember, if you didn't win, you can still buy your own copy, either from  Amazon or the publisher.

Today, I'm pleased to announce that my paperback romance collection, The Course of True Love, is available both from Amazon and the publisher. It's full of four of my best love stories that were previously available only as e-books. So, if you're a print book fan, this one is for you.

Today, you can win a free, signed copy delivered to your doorstep (sorry, this offer is available only to US residents) by following the simple steps below. I am going to choose five lucky winners, so the odds are good!

1. Leave a comment below with your e-mail address so I can contact you if you win.
2. Tweet or Facebook status today's blog and tell your followers about the giveaway. Just point them toward: http://rickrreedreality.blogspot.com/
3. Go to the book's Amazon page and like it (the like button is at the top of the page). Or, of course, you can go there and just buy it; I'd "like" that.

That's it. It's easy, unlike...The Course of True Love.

BLURB
Shakespeare said it best: “The course of true love never did run smooth.” In these emotional, touching, sometimes funny, and always tender stories from Rick R. Reed, meet characters who seek only one thing: to love and be loved. Achieving that goal often proves difficult, but never impossible.

Nothing worth having ever came easy.

Previously available only in electronic format, these stories of Gay Romance have now been combined for a paperback edition! Included are the tales...

I Heart Boston Terriers “I Heart Boston Terriers” is all about embracing love, whether it’s for someone who walks on four legs, or someone who walks on two. The Boston terrier Mavis’ journey back to wholeness and finding her forever home runs parallel to the story of two men discovering one another at just that perfect moment—a moment that defies logic, propriety, and sometimes, common sense.

Beau And The Beast Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Nowhere is this adage more true than in this hauntingly romantic, contemporary M/M take on the classic “Beauty and the Beast.”

Out On The Net Ray Tolliver has cold feet and they don’t get much colder than realizing, twenty minutes before he’s about to marry a woman, that he’s gay. Get a front row seat to Ray’s dramatic, heartrending, and often hilarious journey toward self-acceptance and love.

Class Distinctions Kyle and Jonathan were perfect for each other, the two halves that, once together, made a whole. And then one snowy night just before Parents’ Weekend on the campus of Hamilton University, Kyle drops a bomb: he’s breaking up with Jonathan. Follow the couple through the stormy (in more ways than one) winter night that ensues and discover if love can triumph over differences.

Don't want to wait for the contest. Buy your copy from:
Amazon
The publisher

  10. I love reading your stories. Your stories about your stories. Your amazing productivity. Do you write in your sleep? The only caveat as I have said before is the covers: this one looks like they are dancing. Well I know sex can be like the Charleston (if you're lucky you won't fall on your ass) and dancing often precedes more horizontal pleasures, but two guys asleep and still waltzing? Apart from the guy in the other bed, typing...

    1. Thanks, Ron. I don't know what that's about. I do have an adult content warning that you have to click to enter, but that's the only message I saw when I opened the blog (without signing in) on three different browsers. So I'm not sure where your "security" message is coming from.

  19. And so like the idiot I am, I clicked the Amazon button to tell the publisher that I'd like this book on my Kindle. Can you ever forgive me? (Now if I could just find the button to get your work on Audible.com. Maybe I should offer to be the reader. Okay, I'll hush now.)

    1. Actually, all the individual stories are on Kindle, but the collection is paperback. And good news: audiobooks are being produced. ORIENTATION should be out soon, followed quickly by BLUE MOON CAFE, DEAD END STREET, and OBSESSED. I hope that by the end of the year to have almost all of my full-length work available in audiobook.
