Exclusive Cover Reveal: The Queen And The Homo Jock King by Tj Klune

Tj Klune is back on our blog, y'all, 
and he's brought with him the cover and blurb for his upcoming novel 

The Queen and The Homo Jock King

TMIR #2





First up, the never before published blurb:


Do you believe in love at first sight?

Sanford Stewart sure doesn't. In fact, he pretty much believes in the exact opposite, thanks to the Homo Jock King. It seems Darren Mayne lives for nothing more than to create chaos in Sandy’s perfectly ordered life, just for the hell of it. Sandy despises him, and nothing will ever change his mind.

Or so he tells himself.

It's not until the owner of Jack It—the club where Sandy performs as drag queen Helena Handbasket—comes to him with a desperate proposition that Sandy realizes he might have to put his feelings about Darren aside. Because Jack It will close unless someone can convince Andrew Taylor, the mayor of Tucson, to keep it open.

Someone like Darren, the mayor’s illegitimate son.

The foolproof plan is this: seduce Darren and push him to convince his father to renew Jack It’s contract with the city.

Simple, right?

Wrong.

About Tj Klune:

When TJ Klune was eight, he picked up a pen and paper and began to write his first story (which turned out to be his own sweeping epic version of the video game Super Metroid—he didn't think the game ended very well and wanted to offer his own take on it. He never heard back from the video game company, much to his chagrin). Now, two decades later, the cast of characters in his head have only gotten louder, wondering why he has to go to work as a claims examiner for an insurance company during the day when he could just stay home and write.

He dreams about one day standing at Stonehenge, just so he can say he did.

  17. This has got to be a 15 on the 1-10 anticipation scale! The cover is rather gorgeous and fits Sandy perfectly. There are Soooo many books I'm looking forward to this year, books by the equally fabulous Rhys Ford and Charlie Cochet, also anything from Amber Kell and RJ Scott. Just too many to name! But what a way to celebrate a Leap Year with The Queen and The Homo Jock King?

  20. I loved TMIR and cannot wait for this book. I have been wanting to ready Sandy's story since I read TMIR back in March 2013. There are so many books I am looking forward to either read or re-read, unfortunately in the middle of wedding planning and planning a move are not the most conductive to reading - hoping to read at least 1 book a week which is way down from last year (about 10 books a week).

  47. TMIR was pretty much my acknowledged favorite book until I read The Lightning-Struck Heart. ;) But I was still extremely excited (>10) to hear that the second in the series featuring Sandy *woot* would be coming. The cover pretty much stole my breath for a moment.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I haven't read the first book in this serie but this second one sound so good! I like how he is going to turn the tables on his bully.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I can't wait to read this one.. And many many more lol I'm aiming for a book a day this year. :) :)

  50. I like that the feminine side looks like how most women look and not the over-the-top hair and Tammy Faye Baker, caked on makeup. Yes I laughed quite a bit reading book one. Love book one and really looking forward to book two.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Everyone is talking about wanting this book like a 25 or a 100 on a scale of 1 to 10. What the heck, I'd have to put myself in that category, too. I adored Tell Me It's Real and think it's pretty much the funniest book I've ever read. The chemistry between Sandy/Helena and Paul was great I can't wait to read the story of Sandy and Darren's HEA. <3 (I could do without Andrew Taylor, though, grrr!)

    ReplyDelete
  52. That cover is gorgeous and so cleverly done! Really looking forward to this one.

  53. I really enjoyed TMIR. Not many books are so laugh-out-loud and sweet as TJ Klune's!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I read Tell Me It's Real and also listened to it in audiobook. Every time I read it or listen to it it makes me laugh just like the first time. I'm really looking forward to The Queen and the Homo Jock King. On a scale from 1 to 10, the excitement for this book is definitely a 10.
