Good Riddance 2014 - Hello 2015!

It's 2:05 a.m. on December 31, and I'm taking a break from writing a short story to contemplate life and this moment in it. Without the benefit of alcohol. Yes, it's that bad. And it's that good.

Say What Now?

You may or may not have heard that I released my latest book (and first novella), Vanished, on September 17. I say you may not have heard about it because I’ve basically done zero promotion for it aside from mentioning it on Twitter and Facebook and my website. It’s an absolute failure of marketing, something that would undoubtedly cause the more seasoned professionals to shake their heads and cross me off their list of semi-intelligent creatures.

Dirty Dozen Blog Tour

Have you heard about us, the Dirty Dozen? No, we're not 12 crazy idiots running around with guns doing...well, whatever that movie was about. We are twelve writers who will be attending Gay Rom Lit 2014 in Chicago as Supporting Authors (and the crowd goes wild!). So, we've decided to band together and do a little bit of promotion, that way you'll all know who we are when the retreat starts.

Coming Soon... Vanished

I'm excited to announce the impending release of my new novella Vanished. It's a departure for me, but one I hope you're willing to take with me. Vanished is more suspense than romance, although Henry clearly loves Tom. I can't wait for you to read it.

Henry Cooley has good friends and a good life. He’s secure in his job and his relationship. He and the love of his life, Tom, are about to celebrate their twenty-first anniversary as a couple. Their son, CJ, is in his second year at Cal Arts. Henry's only problems are his growing dissatisfaction with his job and the fact that Tom's parents still hate him, even after all these years. At least those are his only problems until the morning he wakes up to discover Tom has vanished.

Coming to an ebook store near you on September 17. Pre-orders are now available at Amazon (here) for a special (pre-release) price of $2.99 in the US.

Hello Again

Those of you who have been with me for a while may have noticed that we've basically reset the site. I was hosting it with a company that shall remain nameless. After numerous problems keeping the site accessible, my tech guru and I agreed to migrate it to Blogger. For my purposes, this works just as well. When we did that, I decided not to mess with trying to migrate every post because that sounded like a lot of work and I am no help. Unless it involves diagramming a sentence or selling an appliance, I'm pretty much useless.

So welcome to the new Carter Quinn Books. I won't promise that I'll always update it frequently, but I will try to do some things with it. In fact, coming in September, we'll be part of a blog tour of GRL2014 Supporting Authors. And before that, I'll probably be talking a bit about my upcoming release, Vanished.

If you have suggestions for the site, something you'd like to see here, please let me know in the comments.

Welcome to Carter Quinn Books

About Carter Quinn:

Carter Quinn was born and raised in a very small Western Kansas town where cattle vastly outnumber humans. After stints living in places as different as Omaha, Nebraska, and Ft Lauderdale, Florida, he settled in Lawrence, Kansas, and attended the University of Kansas (Rock Chalk!). Although he still bleeds Crimson and Blue, Carter now lives in Colorado where he can be closer to his beloved Colorado Avalanche.

Avery's Orange Fluff Recipe

Orange Fluff

1 – 3oz pkg. Jell-O Orange Gelatin

1 – 3oz pkg. Jell-O Vanilla Pudding or Lemon Instant Pudding
1 – 3oz pkg. Jell-O Tapioca Pudding
2 c. hot water
1 small container Cool Whip
1 can Mandarin oranges, drained
Combine pudding and gelatin with hot water in large sauce pan. Cook until tapioca is clear and thickened, stirring constantly. Let cool completely; fold in cool whip and drained mandarin oranges. Chill until set.
And there you go, Avery’s very special treat made just for Noah. I usually use the Vanilla pudding, but if you want a little bit more tang, the Lemon would be great.
If you make it, let me know how it turns out.
And just because there should be some man candy in this post, here is my vision for Noah.
