QSFer Dani Hermit and Nevi Star have a rereleased MM fantasy/horror book out:
This is the first installment of an on-going series that spans the genres of horror, scifi, humor, mystery, fantasy and many others with characters that run the gamut of sexuality and gender identity.
What do a TV ghost hunter, a fading Broadway icon, a CEO and his son, a bored assassin, and a whole host of other delightfully damaged and deranged characters have in common? The Parliament of Twilight binds them all from the shadows.
The men of this deliciously Yaoi-inspired world fall in and out of love nearly as much as they fall in and out of danger. Steered from the shadows by the mysterious Parliament of Twilight, they must navigate nefarious plots, romantic entanglements, and mortal peril – everything from being attacked by monsters in the highlands of India to altercations with ex-lovers in liquor stores.
**Warning: The narrative contains some explicit content. Not intended for young readers or the easily offended. The books of the Parliament of Twilight series are written with the intention of portraying real, raw characters and situations. While they are not necessarily erotic novels, there are quite a few sex-laden scenes in the course of the narrative. There are elements of gore, horror, and generally disturbing imagery integrated into the stories, even in the sex scenes.**
Life hadn’t been kind to RT Wilmot as of late.
Despite being one of the best musical theater actors and creators of the last 40 years, he was broke. It had been years since he was welcome on his beloved stage, either as an actor or a writer. Wolf TV, the only studio that would touch him these days, seemed unable to find a game show or, God help him, a reality program for him to host. They didn’t even have another poorly compensated gig writing for their much less glamorous Wolf Pups TV division.
He would have thought that devoting those same 40 plus years to the Parliament of Twilight would have had some sort of payoff. But the clandestine organization that he worked for were even more ungrateful than Hollywood. After years of helping to keep the world safe from all sorts of supernatural phenomenon and creatures as an Agent, he had been forced into a state of semi-retirement. He had spent the last twenty years alternating between training new Agents and sinking into deep depressions that made him completely useless.
But none of that was why he was at a budget liquor store on the outskirts of Hollywood today.
Today it was about heartache. A year ago RT had been desperately, madly in love. Not that the man knew any other way to be in love. Only a deeply romantic soul could write the sort of beautifully tragic Broadway epics he was still famous for.
Today was about Jacob. His Jacob. Gorgeous, dangerous, and incredible in bed Jacob. He had been younger than the fallen Broadway queen, but not excessively. He made RT laugh and feel like maybe he still had something to say about love. A new musical was being born from the time they shared together. It had been wonderful, but sometimes in the middle of the night, RT feared it was too perfect. He had been right.
One half of the writing team of Hermit & Star Books, Dani Hermit started out as an avid lover of books. Around age 12, there was a moment that she clearly remembers that changed her life from being a bookworm to a writer. Standing in the local library, she looked around at all the books and realized that someone had to write all of them. She went home that day determined that she was going to be one of those someones.
Beginning with some really fun, though never to see the light of day, X-Men fanfics, she honed her craft until she met the love of her life and art school survivor, Nevi Star. Coming from a similar life-long love of books and stories, it was easy for the pair to bond over their love of writing. They began working on a massive multi-author project together and fell in love along the way. They have been partners in love and work for over 15 years.
Together they have been working on the Parliament of Twilight books, in all their various incarnations, for ten years along with other side projects and fanfictions. In 2014, they finally found the format and final version of the P.o.T. books and have been working diligently on making them the best they can be.
In addition to working with Nevi, Dani has also been working on several stories of her own that she hopes to release in 2015.
When not writing, thinking about writing, editing her writing, or writing some more, Dani is watching TV, obsessing over anime, or devouring books. She reads Tarot and does book cover design on the side to fund her book obsession and writing needs. Nevi spends her non-writing hours drawing, painting, and joining Dani in her TV and anime obsessions.
