Author Extra for Taking a Chance

Torquere Press does a pretty neat thing with its author release days: it allows the author, if they wish to, to give an “Author Extra” that’s related to the new release.  It can be anything from an excerpt to an essay or something fun that get readers engaged.

Rachel and I had fun picking our Author Extra for “Taking a Chance,” our short story for the Leather Bound Charity Sips for 2012 to support the NOH8 Campaign.  In the story, our hero Jay offers to cook dinner for Chance Renton, the attractive leather-clad motorcycle rider that gave Jay a ride home.  What better “Extra” than a recipe for what Jay made for dinner that night?

Come on over to the Torquere Press Blog to check it out!

Take a Chance on “Taking a Chance”


It’s out!  I’m so excited to bring you “Taking a Chance” today!

“Taking a Chance,” by A. Catherine Noon and Rachel Wilder

Doctor Jacob Davison has outgrown the hookups of his younger days and wants to settle down. When he’s abandoned by the side of the road, a leather-clad stranger stops and offers him a ride. Chance Renton is different from anyone Jay’s ever met. He’s caring and helpful, yet cynical and world-weary.

From the first moment of their shared motorcycle ride, an attraction begins to simmer between them. Between Jay’s ex-boyfriend showing up and the misconceptions they have about each other, does this relationship have a chance?

“Taking a Chance” on Wednesday!

For 2012-2013, Torquere’s authors have chosen the theme “Leather Bound” in honor of Torquere’s ninth anniversary. The ninth is traditionally the leather anniversary; what better theme to let GLBTQ writers go wild? The charity which will benefit from this year’s Charity Blitz is NOH8, whose mission is to promote marriage, gender and human equality through education, advocacy, social media, and visual protest. More than twenty-five authors have written short fiction pieces and have agreed to donate all proceeds of the sales of these stories to this year’s charitable organization. Torquere Press Inc. will match the authors’ donations completely.

This year, we’re also pleased to announce that our distribution partner, Rainbow eBooks, has agreed to once again be the title sponsor of our Sip collection, and will be our sole distributor outside of the Torquere Books website. Please support our sponsor by visiting their website. at www.rainbowebooks.com.

Rachel and I are participating with our short story, “Taking a Chance”, which will be available for purchase on Torquere Books and Rainbow Ebooks.
