Tracefinder: Choices cover reveal

June 27, 2020

I’m finally in the home stretch of Tracefinder: Choices (book 3) with a planned release of July 30th. So I thought I’d share the cover and blurb with you.

~~

An ex-cop and a psychic on the mend find their safe haven threatened by vandalism, arson, and the shadow of their dangerous past.

After overusing his Talent till he almost died, Brian wants nothing more than a quiet job on the farm, with Nick to come home to. He’s trying to start a new life, despite bad dreams he can’t shake, vandalism close to home, and his sister’s problematic baby on the way.

Nick gave up the police force and moved to North Carolina to be with Brian, and he doesn’t regret it. But he’s at loose ends, with no real work, the lurking specter of Brian’s brother Damon hanging around, and a worry in the pit of his stomach that Damon’s old enemies might still be after Brian. Nick’s keeping his eyes open and his gun loaded.

~~

(With big thanks to Karrie Jax for putting this cover together for me, and Sid Love for finding another picture of my Brian. Nick’s gorgeous face courtesy of Paul Henry Serres photography.) This book is Brian and Nick’s HEA.

 

In search of equality…

June 15, 2020

Today I blogged on Love Bytes Reviews, celebrating this morning’s SCOTUS decision affirming workplace protections for LGBTQ Americans.  The court said, that when an employer fires an individual for being LGBT the employer “fires that person for traits or actions it would not have questioned in members of a different sex. Sex plays a necessary and undisguisable role in the decision, exactly what Title VII forbids. … the limits of the drafters’ imagination supply no reason to ignore the law’s demands. When the express terms of a statute give us one answer and extratextual considerations suggest another, it’s no contest. Only the written word is the law, and all persons are entitled to its benefit.”

In this decision, explicitly expressing that “all persons” includes our modern understanding of the spectrum of human sexuality and gender, the SCOTUS takes a huge step towards equality in America.

Definitely something to celebrate, at a time when we need that.

Join me for more conversation on Facebook

About a month ago, I started a Facebook reader group, for folks who wanted a bit more interaction, some flash fiction and excerpts, and occasional book giveaways. Today I posted an excerpt from the beginning of the new Hidden Wolves story I’m writing (Book 5.) If you happen to be on Facebook, and that sounds interesting, you can find us at Kaje’s Conversation Corner.

Writing M/M/M Polyamory

April 18, 2020

When Changes Going On released, I had a guest spot on Joyfully Jay, but the weight of my awesome words (joke) crashed the site a few hours later. (Or maybe it was the ghost of Sheriff Kensington, the first murder victim.) Now Joyfully Jay is back up and running with all the great reviews and posts revived – and my post is now up up about writing M/M/M polyamory in “Changes Going On.”

Read the post: https://joyfullyjay.com/2020/04/guest-post-changes-going-on-by-kaje-harper/

The paper book for this title is also now available on Amazon, for those who like to hold real books. https://www.amazon.com/Changes-Going-Kaje-Harper/dp/B0876Z2QKB/

And the first book – Changes Coming Down – is now .99 on all vendors.

 

Book drawing for free copies of Changes

March 27, 2020

To celebrate the release of Changes Going On , The Reading Addict blog invited me to come post an excerpt from the book. (Minor spoilers for book 1 in it.) I’m also doing a drawing there for free ebook copies of both books, so if you haven’t met Casey, Will and Scott yet, or you want to see their HEA, come sign up to win their full story. (And read a review of book 2 – thank you ELF!) Drawing ends March 28th.

Changes Going On release day

March 26, 2020

Changes Going On – the sequel to Changes Coming Down – releases today. The books should be read in order, and I made book 1 – Changes Coming Down – just .99 at both Amazon and Smashwords, so you can meet Casey, Scott, and Will, as they begin to come out of the closet as a poly trio, while facing a murder mystery.

In Changes Going On – book 2 – these three men deal with a summer of media, mentorship, and murder, on their way to their HEA.

**minor spoilers for book 1 **

There’s a reason Scott Edison came out as gay and poly on national TV— now no one can try to push him back into the closet. But as his men and his hockey team deal with the fallout from fans and paparazzi, moving forward isn’t as easy as he’d hoped.

Will Rice was looking forward to a quiet summer, sharing the work with his guys and giving Scott a refuge from the spotlight. He’s hired a couple of young ranch hands, and finally feels ready to give back some of the mentoring that turned his life around decades ago. But good fences won’t be enough to keep trouble off the ranch.

Casey Barlow left the Sheriff’s Department on his own terms, out and proud. But when the new sheriff is murdered— and Casey’s one of the few with a watertight alibi— he’s asked to investigate, and he can’t resist. He’s determined to solve the murder, and still take care of his men on the home front. Then one murder becomes two…

It’s a summer of risks and challenges, and working together is the only way they’ll make it through.

Amazon US: https://www.amazon.com/Changes-Going-Kaje-Harper-ebook/dp/B086DCMG5X/

It doesn’t seem to be up on other affiliates yet, but I will add links when they appear.

I hope readers enjoy watching these three very different men figure out their lives, deal with a mystery, and find love together.

 

Free and sale books

March 20, 2020

Books can be a comfort, and a refuge, in difficult times. Smashwords is having a big sale, from today through April 20th. Many books are free, or 30 or 60% off. Mobi is one of the often-available formats, and my books are in .mobi, pdf, and epub. Check out all the sale books. (my own SW link below)

I have 4 books I’ve made free there through the sale – Sole Support, Second Act, Gift of the Goddess (note a content warning for non-con) and Love and Lint Rollers. (In addition to all my permanently free books)

I’ve also made The Rebuilding Year (Rebuilding Year book 1) 60% off at SW only.

I’ve also marked three books down to .99 although you won’t see the sale tags on them (because the price options didn’t include .99) – just the new low price.

Changes Coming Down (Changes book 1), The Family We Make (Finding Family book 2, where book 1 is a perma-free novella) and Tracefinder: Contact (Tracefinder book 1) are all .99 for a month.

My SW page : https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/KajeHarper

I’ve marked those to .99 on Amazon too, and it looks like some of those price changes are going through now.

I want to wish all my readers safety, a steady heart, and hope, through the days and months to come.

 

Comfort reads for hard times

March 15, 2020

I’m blogging on Love Bytes today about comfort reads for hard times. I’d love to hear yours, here on my blog or on the post. A huge thank you to the authors who write the books that sustain my soul on the tough days.

Comfort reads for tough times

A reading excerpt from Tracefinder: Contact

February 28, 2020

Author Angel Martinez very kindly gave my story a slot today in her Friday Reading Days, where she reads a small excerpt from the first book in my Tracefinder series. She does a great job with these readings – check it out (and her other Friday reads too.)

Two books in this series are out now, and the third is in editing for a spring release. Tracefinder: Contact has a tentative HFN ending, with a more solid HFN for book 2, and HEA coming in book 3.

And if you like spec fic (fantasy and SciFi) with heart and humor, check out Angel’s books while you are at it. I particularly enjoy Gravitational Attraction  and her “Offbeat Crimes” urban fantasy series.

Burnout

January 16, 2020

I blogged on Love Bytes Reviews about the issue of burnout among genre authors in recent months and years. (Click the title in the link.)
