I mention for the first time at the Dreamspinner Press tour stop that Quincy is a huge anime fan. He’s actually a bigger anime fan than I am, but one thing I did borrow from me is what Quincy’s first anime was.
I was late to the anime scene (at least, for someone my age). I didn’t get into it until I’d married the amazing Mr. Grace, who introduced me. I’ve seen a mess of them since then. But the first actual series I got into is InuYasha. I honestly couldn’t tell you exactly what caught my eye, but I have to admit the dog-boy was definitely at the top. He talks about the series here:
Quincy hit the spacebar to pause the video and turned to Miles. “So… that was my very first anime.”
Miles smiled. “I like it. I never had much chance to watch any, but that was mostly because I was too busy studying, then working. If I did anything for fun, it was reading a few minutes here and there where I could squeeze it in.”
“I can see that. I was actually really busy in art school. They’re pretty intense. Not doctor-intense, but….”
Miles nodded. “No, we’re not the only ones who do a lot in college.” He laughed. “So this one, is it a long series?”
Quincy considered that. “Not as long as some. This story is broken up into two different series. The first was… something like a hundred and thirty episodes, then it got canceled. They picked it up later to finish the story line. They’d stopped before the characters had managed to recover all the shards of the Shikon jewel.”
“Well, uh, that’s kind of dumb.”
Quincy laughed. “Most of the viewers thought so too. Probably why they finished it.”
You can see the first InuYasha opening here:
Hope you enjoyed the excerpt and video. Thanks again to Gay Book Reviews for hosting me today!

Dr. Miles Grant acknowledges that his destined mate could be either gender even though his bisexuality cost him his family and his pack. Luckily he found the Forbes Pack, who happily accept him just as he is. What he never counted on was finding his mate in Pittsburgh or for his mate to be another species entirely—a cat!
I thoroughly enjoyed this one and feel like this series has gotten better with every book.Belen's ReviewQuincy Archer isn’t just any jaguar shifter. He is the heir to the leadership of his pride. Destined mates are nothing but legend to the nearly extinct and generally solitary jaguars, and Quincy certainly never expected to find one for himself, much less a male… or a wolf.
However, finding each other and coming to terms with their species is the least of their worries. Quincy is expected to select a proper female mate, father a cub, and take his place as heir to the pride. Except Quincy refuses, having no interest in women or leadership and knowing he isn’t right for it. But his father will stop at nothing—not even attempting to kill Miles—to get his way. Quincy and Miles must overcome many obstacles to stay together as the destined mates they’re meant to be.

Grace Duncan grew up with a wild imagination. She told stories from an early age – many of which got her into trouble. Eventually, she learned to channel that imagination into less troublesome areas, including fanfiction, which is what has led her to writing male/male erotica.
A gypsy in her own right, Grace has lived all over the United States. She has currently set up camp in East Texas with her husband and children – both the human and furry kind.
As one of those rare creatures who loves research, Grace can get lost for hours on the internet, reading up on any number of strange and different topics. She can also be found writing fanfiction, reading fantasy, crime, suspense, romance and other erotica or even dabbling in art.
