Blair Montgomery is sent to Newton, Montana, to purchase a ranch and some land for his father. It’s a trip he doesn’t want to make. But his father paid for his college education in exchange for Blair working for him in his casinos, so Blair has no choice. When he finds out he’ll be dealing with Royal, the man who bullied him in high school, he is shocked. Then Blair is surprised when he finds that Royal’s time in the Marines has changed him to the point where Blair could be attracted to him… if he’s willing to take that chance.

Royal’s life hasn’t been a bed of roses. He saw combat in the military that left him scarred, and not just on the outside. When he inherits his father’s ranch, he discovers his father wasn’t a good manager and the ranch is in trouble. The sale of land would put them back on good footing, but he is suspicious of Blair’s father’s motives and with good reason. The attraction between them is hard for either to ignore, but it could all evaporate once the land deal is sealed.

She gave me her blood, and my life changed forever.

Anastasia. My sire. The only influential figure in my already-fragile life. She did this to me. She caused all the pain and suffering. There was a time I believed I owed her everything. After all, she gave me immortality and the never-ending thirst for the energy contained in the blood of my victims.

But now vampires hunt me and the humans want to use me as their personal weapon. They believe I’m some kind of apotropaic figurine that can damn all Deamhan and force us back into hell where we belong. Me? I just want to live. I just want to be Maris. That way, the only one I can damn is myself.

I knew my name, Maris, and that my mother worked as a prostitute in a famous brothel located in the Irish slums just outside of London, but I didn’t how I ended up in this unknown location.

Every thought about my mother started off the same. She tried to abort her pregnancy because it interfered with her ‘job.’ After my birth she kept me locked up in the corner of the room in the solid brass baby cradle that one of her clients gave her as payment. She tended to me as least as she could and when I was old enough to walk and understand what exactly was going on, she locked me inside her closet where I remained until sunrise.

With her death from cholera a year ago, I found myself forced to earn my way. I had only two options: follow in her footsteps or leave the whorehouse to fend for myself. I pissed myself at the thought of trying to survive out there; in the world, all alone. At least I knew that I would have two hot meals, my mother’s old ragged bed, and a room of my own if I stayed.

I made a promise to myself. I would take over my mother’s client list. I would stay as long as I had to. I would save up as much money as I could and eventually leave for greener pastures. I struggled, though, as the years passed. Some of her clients enjoyed me while others couldn’t handle the fact that I, a post-puberty teenager, would submit myself to that line of work. But I did and there were nights that I wished I hadn’t. I had reached the midpoint of my savings goal when my life changed forever. I was almost there. I almost made it.

One night three large men with sharp teeth stormed into my room. I didn’t know who they were or what they wanted with me. One of them grabbed me by the shoulders and pushed me violently against the wall, demanding that I tell him my name. When I answered his question with a question of my own, he smacked me, slicing the left side of my face. That was when things began to go from scary to downright crazy. He placed his mouth over my opened flesh and began to suck the blood from my wound. That was the last thing I remembered before I blacked out and awoke to three individuals—two females and one male—standing over me.

#Interview w/ Hope Ryan, Author of THE GEEK AND HIS ARTIST

Where were you born and where do you call home?

I was actually born in Nashville, Tennessee. I spent a good deal of time there as a teenager, as well. Home? Well, that’s a different story. I’m a bit of a wanderer. Right now, I’m hanging out in East Texas, but I hope someday to call the Pacific Northwest or Pittsburgh home again.

What is the name of your most recent book and if you had to sum it up in 30 or less words, what would you say?

My latest title is The Geek and His Artist and summed up in 30 words or less is: Brevity is not my strong suit. Seriously, this story started out as a short story, aimed at under 10k. As I was writing it, I got nervous as I approached 8, bit my nails at 10k and saw 12k sail by with no end in sight. I gave up and set it aside. That’s when Blue Eyes was written. And Geek got the full page time it needed.

What does your protagonist think about you? Would he or she want to hang out with you, the author?

I think Simon and Jimmy would both like me. Jimmy would be a lot more comfortable than Simon would, only because I’m very outwardly affectionate and welcoming. I’m a lot like Jimmy’s mom, in fact. So, Simon would probably like me but I’d take some getting used to, for him.

Which character speaks the loudest, to you? Do any of them clamor to be heard over the others?

Geek was originally supposed to be Jimmy’s story. While it still certainly tells Jimmy’s side of things, it didn’t take long for me to see Simon had the bigger struggle. He definitely needed to be heard more than Jimmy did.

How did you come up with the title?

Titling is the bane of my existence. I struggle every time with it. The Geek and His Artist started out as just a placeholder title, but the further I got, the more it fit.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

Fear is such a big part of the lives of so many young people. It’s a sad thing to consider, and for LGBTQ youth, it’s even more prevalent, not just from bullies, but from their own parents. What I’d love a reader to see is that fear is valid—it’s all right to be afraid—but it’s something that you can get past and there’s so much out there beyond the fear.

Do you have plans for a new book?   Is this book part of a series?

Well, I have series-itis. I’m terrible for this, but Sean and Kip have poked me quite a bit and I think I might end up writing their story yet, too.

What can we expect from you in the future?  i.e. More books of the same genre? Books of a different genre?

I love to explore different genres. I have a particular fondness for dystopian and hope to write something there, as well.

Coffee or tea?

Coffee, all the way. I don’t think I’d still be even remotely human without my cup (or three) each day!

Laptop or desktop for writing?

I have a desktop I use most often. I’m a gamer, so it’s also built for gaming. I have a laptop, as well, for when I need a change of scenery while I’m writing.

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to follow the rest of the tour for chances to win a paperback copy of Geek and $25 to spend at Harmony Ink! Each comment below also qualifies you for an entry to the giveaway. One reader today will win a Geek character trading card of your choice!

Simon Williams spends his lunch periods drawing his geek and trying not to think about the terrors waiting for him at home. He needs to get away from his abusive father before he suffers the same grisly fate as his mother. Because he’s learned the hard way running away doesn’t work, he’s counting the days until his eighteenth birthday.

Jimmy Bennet should be spending his lunch studying so his senior GPA is good enough to get him into college, but he can’t seem to focus thanks to his distracting artist. When he’s given the opportunity to tutor Simon in Trig and discovers Simon’s home-life nightmare, he wants nothing more than to get Simon out of danger. This need becomes more urgent when Simon comes to school the Monday after their first date with bruises, but it takes a broken leg before Jimmy can convince his boyfriend the Bennets really want him.

But the danger Simon thought was past shows up at the most unexpected time, and he must stand up to the fears he’s held so long to protect not only himself, but the man he wants to spend his life with.
