Welcome to the Pumpkin Rolls and Porn Sounds Release Party!

February 11, 2015

Hey everybody!  I’m Kris T. Bethke, and I’m here to chat with all you wonderful people about my newest release, Pumpkin Rolls and Porn Sounds—out today!  Check it out, here or at Amazon.  I’m super excited, and really nervous too, because this is my first standalone novella.  I’ll be with you pretty much all day, talking about the story, but feel free to ask me anything you like.

Let’s start with the guys because the truth is, they wormed their way into my heart and wouldn’t let go.  Will Grant is our narrator, and he takes us on his journey of meeting Joshua Rhinehardt, getting to know him, and falling in love.  Will is a law clerk who loves nice clothes, and is unapologetically exactly who he is.  Which is why he doesn’t question it, much, when he finds himself attracted to Joshua…who normally he wouldn’t look at twice.

One of the things I really wanted to explore was my theory that people can get better looking, or not, depending on their personality.  Joshua is a good looking guy, but for Will, he gets even more gorgeous and sexy the more Will gets to know him.  So here’s what I want to know: have you ever had the experience were some became better or worse looking the more you got to know them?  Comment here before 4:30 PM EST and be entered for a chance to win one of two copies of the book!

PumpkinRollsAndPornSoundsFSWill Grant only attends the PFLAG meeting because his mother guilts him into it. But the instant he hears the night’s speaker, Will is glad he showed up. Joshua Rhinehardt is dynamic and engaging. Although Joshua isn’t physically Will’s type, Will can’t get the man out of his head.

Joshua may be comfortable in his own skin, but it isn’t often men like Will are attracted to him, and he’s not comfortable changing for someone else. He wants to make a life with Will, but his own insecurities keep getting in the way.

Will’s unwavering acceptance helps Joshua see that when two people connect, physical appearance just might not matter at all.

    Congrats on the release of your book. I love the title. It brought a smile to my face.

    I have to say I have had the experience where the more I got to know someone the more attractive they got to me. I once had a crush on someone for two years and in that time I just couldn’t find any fault in him. The more I got to know the person the more likable that person seemed. I’ve also had the opposite happen. In elementary school I had a class mate who wasn’t very likable but I guess I just tried to make excuses for his behavior. Anyway things got a bit weird when he started following me around and acting really weird. It just got to the point were I thought it was a really weird kid and just wanted him to leave me alone. The last straw was when he sat too close to me. I got up to move several times and he had also done the same to follow me. I had had enough and finally told the teacher who had seen all of this. She told him to go sit somewhere else and leave me alone but before he did he sneezed all over me. I was so disgusted..

    Thanks H.B.! I appreciate that!

    I’m so glad I’m not the only one who has had that experience, both of them actually. Well, the weird kid that followed me in kindergarten turned out to be not that weird and I didn’t get sneezed on, but still. :)
    Thanks for sharing!

    I’ve definitely found guys attractive at first who then devolve once I discover their true personalities…

    Love the blurb and the inspiration for this story.

  9. kbeth650 says:

    Trix, I so feel you there. How many times have you seen someone totally hot and then they open their mouth and just turn ugly?
