Welcome to my little corner of the gay erotic romance universe . . . well, half of it, anyway. (You can find the other half at RachelHaimowitz.com.) This is the place to come for sneak previews of new projects, release information, and the occasional M/M book review. I'll also share thoughts on the industry on occasion, and I hope you'll come share yours in return.

We interrupt this regularly scheduled no-blog day to share . . . *wipes drool off keyboard* . . . this.

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Daniel Halstrom, star of Anchored: Belonging and the upcoming Where He Belongs, a short collection of vignettes releasing July 1 with Storm Moon Press. Click to embiggen; I cannot recommend that highly enough.

This is the cover of Where He Belongs, so the title and my name will be down in the lower left corner soon. Fortunately, my awesome awesome publisher over at Storm Moon gave me permission to post this now before the lettered version is complete :-D I'd have done it a few hours ago, actually, but I Couldn't. Stop. Staring. At. Daniel. Ah well--occupational hazard, I suppose.

If you're feeling like you recognize the style, that's because this was done by the amazing Nathie, the same artist who painted the cover for Counterpoint: Book I of Song of the Fallen, and who will be painting the cover for Crescendo: Book II of Song of the Fallen as well. I feel like the Luckiest Author in the Whole Universe right now.

Oh, and speaking of exciting news? Anchored finally released in print yesterday! :D :D :D You can find it at Amazon (hmm, temporarily sold out at time of posting) or Barnes & Noble (in stock). Sorry about the cover price--I have no control over that--but hopefully if you've been eagerly awaiting the paperback, you'll find it worth the cost. To make it a little less painful for you, if you order one, email me your receipt (metarachel at gmail dot com) and I'll send you some cool Anchored swag.

That's all for now, folks. If I can cease my endless bouncing off the walls, floor, and ceiling, I'll be back tomorrow with the author and lovely lady Sarah Ballance, who'll be discussing Run to You, also of ZOMGHAWT cover fame :D


  1. DANIEL!!!!! That is soooooo totally totally TOTALLY Daniel!

    Love love LOVE!!! Heehee :D

    Congrats on the awesome!

  2. @Amara: Yeah, I really had no concept of Daniel in my head, but when I opened that file, it just *clicked* Nathie had crawled into my brain and pulled out what I didn't even know was in there. PERFECTION.

    @Hayley: Me too :D :D :D I may or may not have licked my screen . . . *shifty-eyes*

  3. Wow! Just. Wow! That is beyond gorgeous, Rachel! You so TOTALLY scored!

  4. ZOMGINORITE? You should totally come join me and Aleks at Storm Moon; they're using Nathie exclusively for their covers now, so everyone gets their own gorgeous cover painting. And ooh, now you have a great headshot of Daniel for the Romance Trading Cards, yay! :D

  5. Oh wow! I can see why you can't stop staring. He's....compelling.

    And now I want to go back and read Anchored just so that I have him in my head this time.

  6. I haven't done a re-read yet with that picture in my head; I might never make it out of my bedroom again ;-p

    When the vignettes are through edits, I'd love to send them to you for review. They really are vignettes though--more "slice of life" story than "beginning/middle/end" story.

  7. LOL, I can see why you may never wish to leave your bedroom with him in your head :).

    By all means send on the vignettes. I love the Anchored world and look forward to reading more of it.

  8. This is such a beautiful cover - I'm completely jealous!

  9. @Jenre: Will do! Probably toward the end of June.

    @Kerry: Thank you! Come to Storm Moon Press and you can get your own Nathie cover :D

  10. A.W.E.S.O.M.E.

    (That should be eloquent enough 'cause it's 12.45 am over here, I've been on the road the whole day and now I'm on autopilote. ;) But still online, talk about addiction...)

    Looking forward to the vignettes! :)

  11. LOL, you and I both Lilli :D Maybe there's a 10-step program for us . . .
