NEW RELEASE! House of Trickery (Episode 3 of There Was a House)

Episode 3 of There Was a House saga, a continuing story of revenge and redemption.

Jamie has a secret. A secret so dangerous he hasn't even told Phoenix. What’s the point? Without a sure escape, any retaliation is suicide—and he wants far more than retaliation.

He wants total destruction. 

He wants every business associate, friend, and family member to know the dirty secrets of the men who cavalierly use him and his friends, all victims of sex trafficking. Those men are monsters, and he will make sure their brutal crimes are exposed to the world.

And so Jamie painstakingly polishes his devastating plan. He has the time and talent to pull it off. They’re so close! He can almost taste the blood of revenge...but any chance of safe escape continues to elude them all.

There has to be a way out of this hellish nightmare, a final piece in this puzzle of survival. That piece needs to fall into place soon. Hope is fading fast.

**Content Warning: This book contains adult themes and scenes that deal with a difficult topic. 

BUY LINK FOR AMAZON: for Kindle (Paperback will be available there within 3 weeks)


It will also be available on for NOOK, but they seem to be having trouble with their publishing platform and are still publishing for me.

Apple I-tunes store will have it by May 5th.

Since the last two don't have buy links yet, just type in House of Trickery by Caddy Rowland and you will find it when they are finished publishing it.

The next, and last, book in this saga will be out summer 2014 (hopefully late June/early July. Note the word "hopefully") :)

Happy Reading!

Caddy Rowland Book Giveaway/Author Chat on LGBT Facebook Page 4/15 7pm CST

Why write drama? Drama has plenty of happy moments, but also its share of pathos and sadness. Many psychologists say drama is good for people to read, as it makes their own problems seem much smaller. 

I love to read dramatic fiction, so that's what I write. My novels also are LGBT inclusive: They all have either side characters that are gay or lesbian or they have a main character that is. I write about humanity in all of its wonderful variety.

Please join me on Tuesday, April 15, 2014 at 7pm CST for an author chat. I will be giving away an ebook copy of the first book in The Gastien Series (Gastien: The Cost of the Dream) and an ebook copy of the first book in There Was a House saga (House of Pleasure).

This is a Facebook event. Here is the link:

I will be talking about writing books that are dramatic, showing both the sublime joy and bitter tragedy of being human.

. I hope you will join me. Come with questions about my books, writing drama, etc. I’ll be glad to try to answer them.

Great new site for reviews of M/M and LGBT fiction

I'm excited about a new review site both as a reader and an author. Rainbow Gold Reviews is a great place to find new LGTB or M/M books to read AND a fabulous place to get your M/M of LGTB book reviewed if you are an author.  Here is their link: In fact, they have a scavenger hunt going on right now! Venture on  over there and find out more about it, please!

They are using a 10 "Pot of Gold" system for reviewing so they can get more detailed. In addition, they offer a lot of fun contests, author chats, etc on their facebook page: 

As an author that writes novels about the sublime joy and bitter tragedy of being human, I have straight, gay and lesbian characters in my novels, and some of the novels feature a gay (or in the future, lesbian) main character. Why? Because humanity truly is a rainbow of different types of people. Humanity is made up of different races, sexual preferences, religions, ethnic groups, lifestyles, likes, name it. I write drama, and drama happens to everyone.I also really enjoy reading gay fiction (much more than I do M/M because I don't often read romance and M/M is usually romance) for the same reasons. I find the struggles gay and lesbian people have gone through fascinating, heartbreaking, and enlightening. I've also always had gay and lesbian friends in my life, so it happened without really planning on writing it. Now I make a point of doing so.

I mentioned I don't often read romance. That's because of the strict formula romance writing is subjected to. I don't enjoy reading books that I KNOW have to have a happy ending, that I KNOW the two people in love with never cheat. I like to be SURPRISED—both good and bad. However, I do make some exceptions and read some gay romance because writer's of it tend to color outside the lines. It takes guts to do that, and I applaud those who do. 

Why don't you stop over and visit Rainbow Gold Reviews and see what they have to offer? It's new, so I'm cheering for them. I also hoping they don't just end up being another M/M gay romance site. We need places that promote solid LGBT fiction in all genres. Humans read more than romance—no matter what their sexual orientation is.
