In July this year, my fabulous publisher JMS Books celebrate their tenth anniversary! Wohooo, congrats to JM Snyder and JMS Books!!
Naturally, they want do so something to celebrate this amazing milestone. Last year for their 9th anniversary, they sent out a submission call for their existing authors to write a story themed on the number 9. Lots of us did that, including me, I wrote 9 Willow Street for it.
This year, they have several things planned for the celebration, and I’m going to tell you about one of them now:
Wooooot, look at that lovely, lovely cover 😍😍 I love the idea of an anthology showcasing one story from each year, and also anthologies are a great way of trying out new (to me) authors and reading older stories that I might have overlooked for one reason or other.
I’m not just saying that because I have the honor of having a story included in this anthology. Yes, you read that right, one of my stories will be one of the ten featured in this anthology.
Excuse me while I go do a happy-dance 💃💃
My holiday story Unexpected Christmas was the best-selling short-story of 2018 which is why it’s included, and it makes me so very happy.
The release day for A Decade of Gay Romance is July 1, and it’s available for pre-order now. I’ll post the link below.
But, one story does not a decade make 🙂 I’m in excellent company with nine other authors. Are you curious of which other stories are included?
JMS Books began in 2010 as a way for of getting a few friends into print. Ten years later, we’ve published more than 2,000 books celebrating LGBTQ+ romance from over 200 authors. A Decade of Gay Romance is a collection of our ten best-selling short stories, one for each year (to date).
From first love to true love, from submission to sensual, from heat to sweet and everything in between, the couples in these stories are sure to keep you turning the pages as you fall in love with them.
With stories by J.M. Snyder, Drew Hunt, JL Merrow, Wayne Mansfield, Terry O’Reilly, Edward Kendrick, Shawn Lane, J.D. Walker, Nell Iris, and Elizabeth Noble, this head-over-heels collection goes beyond bedtime reading. Whether happily ever after or happy for now, there’s an ending for everyone in here!

Snyder, Twelve Hours I by Drew Hunt, Dead Shot by JL Merrow, The King’s Prize by Wayne Mansfield, My Beagle, the Yenta by Terry O’Reilly, Let Go of Loneliness by Edward Kendrick, Accidentally His by Shawn Lane, A-dork-able by J.D.
