Sale

Pride Sale @ JMS Books

Apparently, it’s sale season. Last week, my publisher had the Anti Prime Sale, and this week they have a Pride sale. Or rather, it started right on the heels of Anti Prime Sale, but I haven’t gotten around to promoting it until now 😁

Cut to the chase, tell us about the pride sale! you’re probably thinking, and all right, calm down, I’ll tell you! Pride Sale is of course in celebration of pride month, and JMS Books offers 30% off all ebooks thru the end of the month. Yay, cheap books!

These books feature some pride related content. Unconditionally was my first ever released book and I wrote it for JMS Books’ Love Wins submission call which was stories celebrating marriage equality. Marriage equality is a big deal in Late Night Poetry, too, and the boys in Angel and Firebird walk a pride parade (that sadly has a tragic aftermath).


I’ve actually done some shopping myself: I took advantage of the sale to pre-order three coming books. Wanna see?

Anyone who read my gushing post about a book I was looking forward to, won’t be surprised to know I pre-ordered Change of Plans as soon as I saw it was available for pre-order. And a new book by my dear friend Kris T. Bethke? Sign me up! And I’ve read a few books by Ellie Thomas that I’ve liked, so I couldn’t resist A Roll of the Dice.

I’ve beta read both Change of Plans and Snow and Mistletoe, so I can vouch for their greatness if you need assurances. I haven’t read A Roll of the Dice, though.

Go forth and shop! 😁

Flowers Under My Pillow

Release Day: Flowers Under My Pillow

It is told in a very descriptive and almost melodic way so you really get the sense of the magic within the tale.

Shari Sakurai

Smiling brown eyes. A dark beard. Dandelions. Sunny, happy dandelions.

For thirty years, Frode’s had the same dream. Every Midsummer’s Eve since he was a kid accompanying his sister to pick flowers to put under his pillow, he’s dreamed of the same man. A dream he never shares with anyone, that makes him wish for impossible things…like true love.

“It’s you.”

Then one Midsummer’s Eve, the man of Frode’s dreams stands before him in the flesh. Both men recognize each other despite never having met in real life. Both men are instantly drawn to each other and want to know more.

“Who are you, Viljar? Are you even real?”

Their questions are many but do the whys and the hows matter? Or should they allow the Midsummer magic that brought them together to lead the way into each other’s arms? Into each other’s hearts?

Traditional Swedish folklore tells you that if you pick seven kinds of flowers in silence and put them under your pillow on Midsummer’s Eve, you’ll dream of the man you’ll marry.

A gentle, lyrical love story.

About Nell, Flowers Under My Pillow

Happy Midsummer

In Sweden, Midsummer is a huge deal. It’s one of our biggest holiday, rivaled only by Christmas, and as with Christmas we celebrate on -Eve and not on -Day. So when you’re reading this, I’m probably busy celebrating Midsummer.

In a non-covid year, this is what the celebrations would look like:

I know I’ve posted it before, but it’s still funny and accurate. And it’s definitely worth re-watching 😂

This year’s celebration will include only me and the hubby. But there will still be food, and snaps, and maybe a drinking song or two. If you’re really lucky, I might post a picture or two over on Instagram.

And if you’re more curious about Swedish midsummer, make sure to pre-order my Midsummer romance, Flowers Under My Pillow that’ll be released tomorrow.

Book Recommendations

Sunday Book Recommendation

I found something fun on Twitter the other day that I thought I’d use for a Sunday Book Recommendation. Let me show you:

So here are 8 book recommendations spelling NELL IRIS. They are all five-star reads for me and get my warmest recommendations.

Nowhere Ranch :: Eight Acts :: Leather and Tea :: Lucas

Invitation to the Blues :: Raze :: In the Absence of Light :: Shifting Silver

I hope you’ll find something you like. And I’d love it if you, too, spelled your name in LGBTQ+ books you love in the comments (or on your blog, Twitter or whatever).

Have a wonderful Sunday ❤️
