Giveaway! Amazon Gift Card, E-Copy of Silas (Purrs, #1), and ARC of Indigo (Purrs, #2)

Hi, all.

To help celebrate On Top Down Under Book Reviews’ 10th anniversary, I’m running a giveaway for a $25.00 Amazon gift card, an e-copy of Silas (Purrs, #1), and an e-ARC of Indigo (Purrs, #2).

The giveaway runs from now until midnight on Halloween. To enter, just follow the instructions in the Rafflecopter link at the bottom of the giveaway post.

While everybody is welcome to enter the giveaway, I’m really hoping for a lot of entries from folks who actually read and/or write in the gay romance slash gay erotica genre. One of my past winners – from this site, not On Top Down Under – was pretty much anti everything I write and everything I believe in. Even so, they won the giveaway fair and square. I’m not going to lie, though… it’s disconcerting when you contact the winner of your giveaway – that they entered on a gay romance author’s site! – and they tell you not to send the winning book (s) because they don’t believe in what you write. All they cared about was the gift card.

Like I said, everybody is welcome to enter the giveaway. I don’t pick the winner, nor does On Top Down Under. To keep it fair to everybody, the winner is chosen via the randomizer in Rafflecopter.

To enter, just follow the Rafflecopter instructions at the bottom of the giveaway post. You can find it here.

You have to comment on the giveaway post for your entries to be valid. This helps weed out the spam.

Note that if the winner has already read Silas (Purrs, #1), I’ll send a different book, maybe even throw in an e-copy (ARC) of Cosmo (Purrs, #3) along with Indigo (Purrs, #2).

Pop over at On Top Down Under and say hi and give a huge congrats for 10 amazing years.

If you have a problem entering the giveaway, let me know.

You can find the blurbs to all of the Purrs books here. Just scroll to the bottom of the page for the individual books.

Until next time,

Candi Kay




‘Willy’ Series in Kindle Unlimited, Purrs & Cupid Updates

First, thanks to all who have read Silas (Purrs, #1). It’s hard starting a new series. Hell, it’s hard for me to get anything published. There are times I publish books that have not been read by ANYBODY but me. That’s the Purrs series. My best friend is very busy so she’s not always able to read my stuff until close to or after the publishing date.

I’ve been doing this long enough to know I need to get beta readers. I’m just weird, I guess. If you knew me in the real world, you’d definitely agree with the weird thing. 😉

The rest of the Purrs series will be spread out over a period of weeks. Because the books are all connected, certain details that need to be elaborated on in one book might not be cleared up until the next one or later.

I’ll use Keiran, main character in Indigo (Purrs, #2), as an example. It’s not explained in the first book why he mostly keeps his relationship with Indi a secret from his brother, Stuart. It is explained in his own book.

It’s in the blurbs, but I’m stressing it again. The Purrs series cannot be read as standalones. Each story pretty much continues until the last one ends.

You can check out the blurbs for all the books in the series here. Just scroll down to the Purrs series and click each individual book to get the info.

Books Now in or Coming to Kindle Unlimited

My last two releases, Christmas in Holly Pines and Silas, were both automatically put in KU when they were published. I think Eros and the Taking Lance series are the only others exclusive to Amazon.

I’ve been asked by readers to put the Willy the Kinky Elf & His Bad-Ass Reindeer series in Kindle Unlimited over the past few years. I wanted to wait until the series was complete. It’s been a couple of years, so I pulled all the books from the other sites and they’re now exclusive on Amazon in KU. Nothing changed other than formatting and a few minor things (mostly punctuation) here and there.

I also plan to pull Kane the Fake Elf & His Sexy Mall Santa from the other sites and put it in KU as well. As for all my others, they’re up in the air for now.

Cupid (Love Gods, #2)

Cupid is the 2nd book in the Love Gods series, with Eros being the first one. While Cupid has his own love interest, the book is a continuation of sorts of Eros. All the major players from Eros (Eros, Sy/Psyche, Aphrodite) are in Cupid. There are also a few new characters introduced (Venus, Mercury, and most imporantly – Peitho). Venus is evil. Mercury is a sweetheart. Peitho is a hot and sexy Greek. 😉

If you’ve not read Eros and want to, send me a message. I’ll send you a free e-copy. Or you can get it from Amazon. It’s in Kindle Unlimited. It’s highly suggested that you read Eros before you read Cupid or you might be confused.

Cupid will be available for pre-order in the coming days, to be published on January 1st, 2023.

You can check out the blurb here.

I think that’s it for now. I’ll update with more info on Indigo and Cupid when I have it.

Until next time,



Silas (Purrs, #1) is Live!

Silas (Purrs, #1), the first in my new series, is live on Amazon.

The Purrs series follows the Kitts, a family of cat shifters, as they each find their fated mates. There’s a little bit of drama that comes into play with some of them, but it’s all worked out quickly.

There are five and a half stories, total, with Lyn (Purrs, #5.5) being a quick freebie at the end of Finian (Purrs, #5). That one’s about the only daughter as she finds her own mate. Lyn’s story is a quickie F/F short. I’ll also make her story available for free on this site after all the books in the series have been published. #5.5 doesn’t have to be read as part of the series.

I hope you all enjoy my little series, inspired by my late sister’s love of all things feline. Expect a little bit of silliness, some humor, a few serious moments, fated mates, and a whole lot of falling in love. The Kitts are all about family, and I’m hoping that comes through in every book in the series.

Let me know if you check out Silas! Available in Kindle Unlimited, you can find it here. The series order is at the bottom of this post. I will update with publishing dates for the others when they’re available.

Until next time,

Stuart Parker is looking for love. He goes on the occasional date, but none of the guys want to stick around. If they bother to show up at all. On the rare times a date has come to his house, Stuart’s diva cat didn’t exactly give him a warm welcome. He swears the cat is purposefully sabotaging his love life by hissing, growling, and even hiding his condoms and new underwear.

Si isn’t your typical house cat. He’s been trying to work up the courage to tell Stu the truth for a year, but how do you tell your human mate that you’re not the feline that you appear to be?

After being stood up yet again, Stuart’s brother Keiran takes him to Purrs nightclub, where Kei is the assistant manager. When Stu meets one of the club’s owners, Silas, he’s struck still. Besides being the most beautiful man Stuart has ever seen, the collar he’s wearing looks an awful lot like the one Stu designed for his cat.

You know, his cat named Si.

Life suddenly takes a drastic turn for both human and feline. Has that elusive happily-ever-after Stuart’s been searching for been right under his nose the whole time? Will he run in the opposite direction when he discovers who his pet really is?

Each book in the Purrs series takes place during the same time period. Details from one story may be expanded upon in another. Some events in a previous book might not have taken place yet in a subsequent book.

The books in the Purrs series cannot be read as standalones. While each one focuses on a new couple, their stories are all linked to the series as a whole. Some secondary characters may seem insignificant in one book and be quite significant in another.

Note that past sexual abuse is discussed briefly in Silas (Purrs, #1). While nothing is on-page, this may trigger some readers. Keep this in mind before downloading the book.
