Let's start with the good news, shall we? Sterling is currently a bestseller in Mystery/Suspense and Vampire/Werewolf on ARe. Super! It is also ranking at #66 today on Bookstrand. (Last night it was #69 which amused me). And it already has 3 ratings (2 4's and a 5 :) ). I am very pleased with my sexy gay werewolves. And I am very thrilled and thankful to readers for making them so popular so fast!
Bad news on the Uncle Ed's Lap and the Father's Keeper front. Despite my titles, both of my books are in essence love stories between two consenting (non-blood related) adults. However, they are falling dead in the culling of anything that even smells of sorta-kinda-maybe incest. So far they are gone from ARe, Bookstrand and if they are not gone from Smashwords yet, they will be soon.
Both titles (print and Kindle) are currently still available at Barnes and Noble and Amazon and I believe Fictionwise. So, if you have any interest in getting them. You might want to do it now. We do not know how far this will spread. If you believe in the right to read what you want and some of what you want to read is books like mine, I encourage you to visit The Self Publishing Revolution to learn how you can stand up for your rights.
That being said, if anything, the last few weeks have made me blog more than ever.
From Blackraven, BlackRaven's Reviews, 4/5 RAVENS
Father's Keeper by Parker Ford has everything, passion, raw emotion, pain, anguish, longing, but most importantly love. If you haven't read one of Ms. Ford's book, you should definitely give Father's Keeper a try.
From Claudia R., Manic Readers Reviews, 4.5/5 STARS
[T]his book kept me reading until I realized I had finished it in one sitting. I cannot wait for another Parker Ford taboo story that pushes the boundaries of sex, passion, and of course love.

Uncle Ed's Lap
what's being said about Uncle Ed's Lap...
Claudia R., Manic Readers Reviews, 4/5 STARS "Wow. This story is most definitely not for the faint of heart....[T]his story is hot enough to burn the pages, but it also shows that with death you can also have love."
Dakota, Dark Diva Reviews, 4/5 DIVAS
"[Parker Ford] writes scorching hot love scenes to compliment the somber tone of a man dealing with his wife-s death- She has given her readers a near perfect balance...Who can resist the sexy older alpha male? Those alphas are like a fine wine and only get better with age."
LynnMarie, HEA Reviews, 5/5 CUPS
"Parker Ford has mastered the technique of writing sexual tension. It explodes off the pages-The sex was fully described and scorching hot! ... If you want to push the boundaries of your erotic reading experience, Uncle Ed-s Lap is an excellent place to start."
"The writing is smooth and titillating- Parker did a wonderful job incorporating a taboo subject with arousing sexual content with the sometimes-unexpected places a person can find love and comfort- Don-t shy away from Uncle Ed-s Lap because of the content warning or you will miss out on a wonderful story that will have you sweating with the steamy love scenes and emotionally poignant moments-"
