Eden Winters named Lambda Literary Awards Finalist!

Oh wow do I love it when other people agree with me! Eden Winters' Settling the Score has been named a finalist in the 24th Lambda Literary Awards in the Gay Romance category!

Anyone who hangs around here knows that Eden is a must buy for me, and Settling the Score is one of my favorites. There's a 5 Marble review here, and this is one I go back to when I'm too tired to start something new and need an old friend.

Closeted mechanic Joey Nichols' life is good. His boyfriend landed a major Hollywood role, and is well on the way to superstardom. Joey's bags are packed and soon he'll leave small town Georgia and join the man of his dreams in California, to live out, proud, and together. Days before his planned departure, his lover outs Joey during a televised interview and announces that they've broken up, leaving Joey to face the bigotry of the locals alone.

Bestselling author Troy Steele knows all about having life turned upside down by the media. Now a recluse, Troy shuns all the trappings that come with writing books made into blockbuster movies. He spends his time exacting revenge on a former flame via his novels and hiding out in rural South Carolina, watching celebrity gossip shows. Joey's fifteen minutes of fame bear an eerie similarity to the plot of Troy's latest work in progress. What if Joey could be transformed into everything the fickle ex wanted, as Troy is writing for his fictional hero, and secretly wishes for himself? Once polished, could a diamond-in-the-rough good ole boy confront his ex, then walk away, pride intact? These are Troy's questions, and he's counting on Joey for answers.

Buy here.


  1. Yay for Eden! This is a great read.

  2. Thank you so much, Cryselle, for the well wishes and for all your support in my writing. I'm stunned and it's just starting to sink in. I'm keep looking at the press release just to make sure my name is still there.
