Anniversary Shenanigans: Author Visit & Giveaway: Keira Andrews

There were many blog books I've read and liked, but one that stands out for me (Breann) is A Forbidden Rumspringa by Keira Andrews!

<-- Just look at those sweet boys. Gah. I reviewed it a few months ago and I still think about them from time to time. David and Isaac with forever hold a special place in my heart. I'm dying to read more about their story.

Let's be honest, if not for the blog... I probably would have read this beauty anyway because it took over my update feed for a few weeks. It was not to be ignored. For good reason!

If you haven't gotten your hands on it, jump on the buggy (<- Heh. See what I did there?) and READ IT!

BMBR: What are your favorite M/M themes?

Keira: I'm a sucker for two sides of the same coin: hate to love and friends to lovers. I also eat up hurt/comfort with a spoon. I adore angst when I know I'm getting my happy ending.
BMBR: What books do you consider Desert Island Keepers?
Keira: Ohh, that's a tough one. Summer Devon and Bonnie Dee's M/M historicals spring to mind, especially The Gentleman and the Rogue. R.W. Day's A Strong and Sudden Thaw is a perennial fave, as is Perry Moore's Hero. Then there are classics such as To Kill a Mockingbird. How big is my suitcase? I hope it's expandable!
BMBR: What's your go-to tasty beverage?
Keira: Diet Coke, a.k.a. the Nectar of the Gods. (I know it's full of chemicals, but an ice-cold DC is heaven.)
BMBR: Nobody does Diet Coke like Mickey D's. Nobody.
BMBR: Do you have any secret talents? Inquiring minds want to know.
Keira: My PG secret talent is having a scarily good memory for useless information. My R-rated secret talent is under wraps for a reason. ;)
BMBR: Useless information may turn out to be useful someday!
BMBR: If you had to choose to be one magical beast, what would it be and why? (you don't have to say unicorn...but we won't say neigh either)
Keira: I'm going to go for a hippogriff. Horse/eagle seems like a winning combination since I could fly or run depending on the terrain. Unicorns seem like they'd be real divas, whereas the hippogriff might be cranky (at least in the Harry Potter universe), but practical.  
BMBR: Who's your favorite porn star?
Keira: Colby Keller. He's just so adorable, along with being smokin' hot. He's not one of those dead-eyed guys you know is only faking for the camera.
BMBR: Do you have author envy? Whose words do you read and think, "GAH, I wish I wrote that!"?
Keira: All the time! Recently it was KJ Charles and her book Think of England, which is a delight. Also Tamara Allen. Her work is so lovely.

BMBR: Any new projects you're currently working on? 
Keria: You bet! My latest release, Semper Fi, came out a few days ago. It's a novel about two Marines who go from friends to lovers after WWII. It was a real labour of love, and I hope readers will love Cal and Jim as much as I do. Then in December I have Holding the Edge, a holiday sequel to Cold War.

February brings A Clean Break, the sequel to A Forbidden Rumspringa, which readers can win in the BMBR anniversary giveaway. The response to AFR was better than I'd dreamed, and I'm excited for everyone to read David's POV in the second book. I'm also working on the third in the series and hoping to have it ready for April or May. As you can tell, I'm very busy! I wouldn't have it any other way.   
BMBR: *squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee*
Thank you so much for stopping by and chatting with us Keira!

About the Author:
After writing for years yet never really finding the right inspiration, Keira discovered her voice in gay romance, which has become a passion. She writes contemporary, historical, paranormal and fantasy fiction, and—although she loves delicious angst along the way—Keira firmly believes in happy endings. For as Oscar Wilde once said, “The good ended happily, and the bad unhappily. That is what fiction means.” You can find out more about Keira and her books at her website, and on Facebook and Twitter.
