Happy Monday! It’s been a minute, but I’m back with some interesting coffee news: some coffee was recalled because it contained an undisclosed Viagra-like ingredient, Starbucks Roastery adds a new beef jerky coffee beverage to their menu, and Matchless Coffee Soda is making plans through Kickstarter to release their product nationwide.

Circus Games is the second book in the wild-west-meets-space-age Steampunk Mecha Mania series and takes place a week after the end of the first book, Circus Escape, with Nessie now running the mechanical machine fighting circus she was so obsessed with in the precious story.

Kendall is a wedding planner who’s yet to meet that special someone who wholeheartedly accepts his love of pretty things and his genderqueer identity. Todd is a tattooed, bearded, flannel-wearing bakery assistant just getting his life on track after battling addiction.
