What People are Saying about The Covenant:

The Covenant will strip you bare and then carry you up out of darkness and into the light. It’s one of the most powerfully emotional stories I’ve ever read.”– Carly’s Book Reviews

“The bond and love David and Jonathan share runs deep. Something that I truly believe may be unbreakable.”–Bayou Book Junkie

“… I referred to David as the hero, and this is absolutely true. Like his biblical counterpart, David faces many giants, and each time, he comes out stronger. David is a fascinating character, and I have to wonder if he lived in our current time whether he would consider himself genderfluid or another non-binary identity. He’s shown as a sweet, feminine boy who might be mistaken for being delicate or weak—and this is how those who hate him want to see him. But he isn’t, and he repeatedly proves that he is both strong enough to fight for himself and strong enough to trust the people who love him to be at his side.” —A. M. Leibowitz

The Blurb:

When love is forbidden, who can you trust?

Seventeen year old David has been best friends with Jonathan for as long as he can remember, but the day he sees the pastor’s daughter press a soft kiss to Jonathan’s cheek everything changes. Overcome by jealousy, his explosive reaction reveals a deeper connection that sends their relationship spiraling down into dangerous territory.

When their clandestine love is discovered, they have nowhere to turn for help. The brutal circumstances of their parting test David and Jonathan’s  covenant to each other in unimaginable ways. Forced to face their fears, it is in their darkest moments that the two young men discover that the courage, hope, and strength they need to to fight for their love, has been the foundation of their covenant all along.

Each blog has exclusive content along with the usual– the blurb, the cover, the buy links, about the author– and so you’ll want to go see all of them. Rumor has it, some of the blogs have pieces of a short story, too. (But you didn’t hear that from me!)

Oh, and did I mention there’s a giveaway?

WORLD’S END: FRENCH TRANSLATION

La Bout du Monde_Full Size

An awesome job completed by Bénédicte Girault and her talented team of translators, my debut book can now be read in French! Kiyoshi and Shelly translated into one of the most romantic languages in the world–what’s not to love? A slightly funny aside, when I was reviewing the document for formatting in the CreateSpace forum, I had up Google Translate… and everything I put in the French side, I made it read to me. (Yeah, total dork!)

I know… you’re wondering why I was in CreateSpace? THAT’S A SURPRISE… one I will let the lovely Bénédicte let out of the bag!

For now… here are the buy links for all my lovely French speakers!

BLOG TOUR: SEQUESTERED HEARTS by MICHAEL KUDO

SEQUESTERED HEARTS by MICHAEL KUDO

Sequestered Hearts

*SYNOPSIS*

After the Riots at Stonewall, a major political movement took place which resulted in Gays/Lesbians becoming slaves.
Colton Taylor was born with every advantage – except parents who are there for him. His father and mother are constantly absent because they’re too busy keeping up on the family business, and when they are around they nitpick at him and make him feel like he’s only a tool to further their legacy.

Colton has no problems with the slaves his family owns. He doesn’t care if they’re gay or lesbian; to him they’re just people. One day he meets an interesting slave named Oliver, and the two hit it off. Eventually they start hanging out (in secret) and a relationship blossoms.

Colton knows if his father was to ever find out it would spell trouble but he can’t stay away from the only person who makes him feel special and loved. Even if it means giving up everything he has. Because love is all that matters. And it always finds a way.

*ABOUT THE AUTHOR*

Michael Kudo on GoodReadsMichael was born and raised on the Jersey Shore – the geographical location, not the TV show. As such, he cannot boast having tanned skin, a rock-hard body, or being BFFs with Snooki. His version of GTL is gaming, Tumblr, and Lounging. He didn’t know what to do for a living until he wrote a couple of fun short stories as an English class project and made people laugh, something he’s always enjoyed doing and decided that’s what he wanted in his future.

A self-described “Otaku” (person with obsessive interests in manga, anime, and/or video games) Michael spends most of his time enjoying those things, becoming emotionally attached to fictional characters and collecting every bit of My Little Pony merchandise available.

He lives with his fiancé of five years in the heart of NJ.

*GIVEAWAY*

Want to read his first novel? MICHAEL KUDO is throwing an impromptu giveaway here on The Worlds in Our Stars, and all you have to do is comment below and tell us about your first love! Michael will choose a comment at random to receive a copy of Red Rose Blood by Michael Kudo!
