Welcome Rob Colton - An American Lamb in Europe giveaway and preorder link

Hi everyone! My name is Rob Colton and I’m here to talk about my upcoming novella, An American Lamb in Europe. The book is coming out Wednesday, February 12th.

First, I want to thank M. A. Church for hosting me today. The book is actually dedicated to her, because without her help, the book wouldn’t be what it is today.

Her encouragement was what inspired me to first submit my work for publishing. She answered all my newbie questions, and gave me advice that was simply invaluable.

To celebrate the release, I’m giving away a copy of the An American Lamb in Europe ebook to one of M’s readers. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post between now and Wednesday, February 12 at midnight EST. A winner will be chosen by random. Be sure to leave your email address so that I can contact you if you win!






Blurb:

Jamie Anderson knows you need to look before you leap, but he forgets it often enough to land in trouble. When his brother and only remaining family member disappears, he doesn’t think twice about quitting his job as a dental hygienist to travel to the Czech Republic to search for him.

Rescued by the sexy, mysterious Tomas in a small city near the German border, Jamie enlists his help in locating Rudy. Soon Jamie realizes the man knows more than he’s sharing. When Jamie demands Tomas tell him the truth, Tomas reveals he’s a vampire. Horrified the man he’s fantasized about is a monster, Jamie struggles with the fact he still needs Tomas's help to find Rudy.

Jamie never expects their search will land him in the middle of a vampire turf war.



Excerpt:
I pushed what was left of my lunch around with my fork while I stared out the window. It wasn’t that the food wasn’t good, I just had no appetite.
The little town square was bustling with people of all ages. It was quite quaint and charming in the daytime. I couldn’t help but wonder if they had any idea what kind of creatures lurked around their streets under the cover of night.
Like lambs to the slaughter.
I let out a snort of unamused laughter and then a long sigh.
I now knew what happened to Rudy. Well, kind of. He was a blood donor, a “lamb” as Tomas called them. I couldn’t believe that my brother might be dead, all in the name of some kind of vampire turf war.
Was that enough to satisfy me? Did I really need to know more?
Maybe I should take Tomas’s advice: book a flight and go home. Get away from this old-world town from hell. But even as I sat there staring at the townspeople below, I knew I wasn’t finished. I had to know exactly what they did to my brother. If he was dead, I needed to make sure he was properly put to rest.
Oh God, what if he came back from the grave? Would I have to chop his head off and burn his body to save his immortal soul? The thought sent a violent shudder through my body. There was no way in hell that I could do that, so I prayed to anyone who would listen Rudy would not need me to go all Van Helsing on him.
I had made up my mind. Now that I’d come this far, I was not going to give up. I had to know for sure. There was no turning back. Besides, what did I have to go back to? A lonely apartment and a boring job? With Rudy out of the country, I wouldn’t even have the distraction of him coming and going, messing up my life. But Rudy wasn’t gone. I was going to find him.
I just needed a plan.
First, I needed to find the gang who took Rudy and get some answers. Second, I needed to do that without getting sucked dry.
Right. Easy as pie.
Speaking of getting sucked dry….
I closed my eyes as I thought of Tomas’s visit the night before. Remembering the feel of his amazing hand, my cock stiffened in my pants, and I reached down and palmed it through my jeans. Damn, that felt good. Biting back a moan, I squeezed the base of my dick to keep from blasting come into my underwear.
Leaning my head back, I stared up at the cracked ceiling. God, I wanted him. I didn’t want to, but I did. But just because I wanted it, didn’t mean I had to act on it. He was a freaking vampire for God’s sake, the walking dead, a bloodsucking killer. There was no way in hell I should be remotely entertaining the idea of even seeing him again, let alone having sex with him.

  29. I, like so many others, have read all of your stories multiple times. It is my “feel good/feel better” gift to myself and it is usually a few hours every other night. I reread all of the stories & I thoroughly enjoy the fact that there is some angst but always a happily-ever-after. I don’t know who my favorite couple is (I would have to say my top 3 are Ben & Benji, Colton & Parker, and Bastian & Devin (and possibly also Tim & Hank)) but I know it would be a really hard choice if I had to decide. I can barely wait to meet the newest couple see what this new story brings for Tomas and Jamie.
    Excellent job! Congratulations!

    Your writing has made such a fan of me that I can't begin to express how much I am looking forward to this new work of yours. I have never been a big fan of the vampire novels as such, but in your hands, this will be just as satisfying as the Galactic Conspiracy books which were what drew me in to begin with. As long as you keep writing, I'll keep reading!

  41. I love all of Rob's stories. My favorites being Preacher's Son, Big Ben, and Brother-in-law. Fact is I've read them many times over the years, even when some were on nifty.org. So happy you've published your writings. The characters are "my kind" of characters! Thanks.

  43. Yay another book of yours to read! Not that I don't like rereading your books but I get super happy and sad when Wednesdays come. Not only do I get to read something new each week but it's too short and too long to wait for more. By far Tom and Hank is my favourite...still makes me cry. Can't wait!
