Black & Blue

Publisher info

Black & Blue = Alyce Black, author of horror, sci-fi, and speculative fiction; and Ally Blue, author of gay romance of pretty much all subgenres. I created the Black & Blue Smashwords "publisher" to wrangle my dual author identity :)

Update September 2022: It is with sadness that it must be announced that Ally Blue/Alyce Black author, Allyson Brown, has died of a brain tumor. Please continue to enjoy her legacy of work.

Bluewater Bay
Welcome to Bluewater Bay! This quiet little logging town on Washington state’s Olympic Peninsula has been stagnating for decades, on the verge of ghost town status. Until a television crew moves in to film Wolf’s Landing, a soon-to-be cult hit based on the wildly successful shifter novels penned by local author Hunter Easton. Wolf’s Landing’s success spawns everything from merchandise to movie talks, and Bluewater Bay explodes into a mecca for fans and tourists alike. The locals still aren’t quite sure what to make of all this—the town is rejuvenated, but at what cost? And the Hollywood-based production crew is out of their element in this small, mossy seaside locale. Needless to say, sparks fly.
