Please say hello to Brad Vance and
Strength In Numbers
They’re back! In their first adventure, Marc Julian, software billionaire, and Jesse Winchester, hacker extraordinaire, survived the evil plans of the Krom Brothers and Jesse’s first lover, Chip. But Jesse has old debts to pay to Russian gangster Leonid Ivanov. Now Leonid is calling in those debts, demanding that Jesse find a great treasure for him, and a new game is set in motion… The mysterious “Satoshi,” creator of the cybercurrency Bitcoin, has been hiding $400 million worth of the currency for years. But now, he has chosen to start a quest for the keys to the Hoard, and he who controls the keys controls the fortune. And this will be a quest that will test the strength, the will, and the character of those who pursue it.
But Marc and Jesse aren’t the only ones on the hunt, as old enemies resurface to try and beat them to the treasure… And even if they reach it first, they must ask themselves – do they really want to give a Russian gangster $400 million to pursue his deadly enterprises? And what would be the consequences if they don’t?
The pursuit will take them through the museums of Tokyo, the streets of Buenos Aires, and the coast of Mexico, in a desperate and dangerous race to keep the fortune in digital gold from the hands of all their enemies…
Marc smiled as he made clinking sounds in the galley of his private jet. He already had the black slacks on, so it was the work of a moment to take off his polo shirt and slip into the white epauletted button-down short-sleeve shirt of a steward. The wings were already attached to the lapels, and he’d even had a name tag made.
“Here you go, sir,” he said as he handed Jesse his drink on a tray. Jesse was already involved in something on his phone, and he absentmindedly reached for it.
Then he paused, sensing that something had changed. He looked up to see Marc dressed as an airline steward, his eyes dancing with heat.
Marc didn’t smile as he said, “Is there anything else I can get you, sir?”
Jesse swallowed. “Maybe a warm blanket.”
Marc took the drink from his hand. He pressed a button on the side of Jesse’s chair.
“The seat fully reclines into a bed, sir. Let me make you comfortable.”
As the seat back flattened and the base lifted Jesse’s feet up, Marc pushed another button, and the chair’s arms lowered out of the way, which gave him room to straddle Jesse’s hips.
He put his hands on Jesse’s chest, and Jesse reached up to finger his collar. “How did you earn those wings, steward?”
Marc idly stroked Jesse’s hand where it lingered on the wings. “Oh, those, sir? For achieving membership in the Mile High Club. Are you a member?” Marc began to grind his ass against Jesse’s crotch, feeling the transformation below his slacks.
“You know, I am not. I’ve never been invited to join.”
Marc leaned in to whisper in his ear. “Let me be the first to welcome you, then.”

We had a chance to ask Brad a few questions...
Hi Brad, welcome to My Fiction Nook!
Thank you for having me!
What is your least favorite part of the publishing/writing process?
The business side – the promotion, salesmanship, marketing stuff that every self pubbed writer has to do for him/herself – or finding competent trustworthy people to do it for you. I’m lucky to have Pride Promotions for this blog tour, they always do an excellent job for me, but you end up with a lot of flakes in this business.
As an author, is there one subject you would never write about? What would it be?
Oh I could never do “sweet Christian romance,” the M/F mail order Amish bride stuff. I know folks who can turn on a dime and put that out there and make the $$$, but I’d just die.
When did you first realize you wanted to write?
As soon as I could write. I was creating stories when I was a little kid. And I never wanted to be anything else. There were other ways I could make a living; I’m tech savvy and I’ve worked in that industry, but there was never another job that I wanted to do the rest of my life.
How long did it take to write your book?
It takes me about two to three months to write a book, though this one had a bump in the road called Winter. I have SAD and I really lose my energy in December. When I’m rich, I’m taking that whole month off every year, and sitting on a Caribbean beach every day.
For Fun: Where is one place you’d like to visit you haven’t been before?
Berlin! And I’m going this summer. It turns out that the week I’d already scheduled is the week of Euro Pride Con 2016, so I’ll be a guest there!
