The Order of Wolves | The GA Hauser Collection, LLC | gay erotic shape-shifter | June 6, 2011
In the sequel to Of Wolves and Men we find ATF Agent Roman Burk and horse wrangler Charlie Mosby, still investigating the strange curse they have been burdened with.
Charlie struggles to come to terms with his boss and co-workers on the horse ranch in Heber, Utah, knowing he is Roman's gay lover. This new problem of changing into a wolf or crow whenever they grow angry or emotional, has both Charlie and Roman near the end of their rope.
Roman loves Charlie, but he loves his job back in Reno as well. Though Charlie has been his champion and ally through their ordeal, Roman doesn't know if Charlie would be willing to give up his life and career and join him in the city.
Another wrangler, Butch Crowell complicates the situation for the two men, whose life is already too bizarre for either of them to believe. Butch instills jealousy in Roman as he too becomes enamored with the handsome cowboy Charlie.
In the end, it's up to Charlie to decide which path to choose, and if leaving a place where he has lived and worked for years is the best course of action.
The Order of Wolves is about the alpha male, and who will inevitably be top dog.
Please describe your writing environment.
I work from home in a home/office.
Please tell us your latest news!
The Order of Wolves is the sequel to Of Wolves and Men and explores a different take on the wolfe-shape-shifting genre.
Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
When I was young I used to write dirty stories to amuse myself. As I grew older, I tried to find gay romances to read. There simply weren't any. I had to write my own to create the type of novels that satisfied my craving. So I had nearly a dozen novels written, and even had invented Mark Richfield, Steve Miller, Jack Larsen, and Sharon Tice, but I had yet to send them out to a publisher. That came years later.
Do you have any advice for other writers?
"NEVER GIVE UP! I mean, never. Though now, with the emergence of hundreds of ebook publishers, getting a contract has become slightly, (and I'm not saying in general for all publishers) easier for a young or first time writer to get published. There are other avenues to gain a voice than the New York few who only pander to a handful of creative people. And with self-publishing, anyone can now release their own work. But when asked, I say, Don't Give Up! You give up, you lose-"
What main genre do you write in?
Do you have any other author names? If so, what are they and what's different about what you write under each name.
I write under Amanda Winters as well. This is to separate the gay erotica from the non-erotica.
Do you like to mix genres?
Yes. I find mixing gay romance with paranormal, BDSM, mystery, or cop dramas, is a much more enjoyable way to write, and I hope more fun for my fans to get a taste of what they would like to read.
What book are you reading now? What are your thoughts on it?
I don't have any time to read for pleasure much any more. The work has become all consuming, and once I am done for the day from the computer, I am too exhausted to do more reading.
What inspires your writing?
Everything. Heroes come in every profession. Men inspire me. Men who love men, men who go out on a limb for their beliefs, and men who love truly and deeply. I also feel inspiration knowing one day, the world will be a less ignorant place to live and civil rights will not be questioned.
Do you have any cool promo tricks you can share with other writers?
I wish. Promotion is the hardest part of any writer's work. My advice is - give and receive help from contemporaries. I have invited non-published authors to send me short stories to publish in my books, and always am open to M/M authors to promote their latest release in my novels as well. So be kind and give a little.
If you had to choose one person to have dinner with, who would it be? And why?
Mark Antonious Richfield. I think meeting him in the flesh would both turn me on and crack me up. (You didn't say it had to be a real person!) I'm not a big celebrity fan, and the people I respect most I do communicate with!
I want to say a big thank you to all my fans, and also the writers I have come to know through writing gay erotica. There are so many great new authors out there, Michael Mandrake, Patricia Logan, Kage Alan, to name a few, who are continuing to break ground, give back constantly to other authors and show no resistance to spreading a kind word or pat on the back.
And thank you to this review site for giving me a voice.
Be safe out there.
