Author Name: Brad Vance
Book Name: Werewolves of Brooklyn
Release Date: August 5, 2015
Darien Mackey wasn’t looking for an adventure. For ten years, he’d been happy living in Brooklyn, working as a butcher in the same job, living in the same apartment, dating some “nothing-special” guys. Until one night his buddy Jacob talked him into taking ayahuasca, the soul-changing drug. And Darien had a vision…of a wolf, its all-too-human eyes on him, its paws on his chest, its enquiring mind in his own…
Darien Mackey is changing. He’s more confident, more assertive, hungrier, hornier. And his world is changing around him – his job, his home, his beloved Mechanic’s Library all falling victim to the predations of unscrupulous developers, bent on demolishing the old Brooklyn he loves and replacing it with a forest of condos. But he’s no longer a passive observer of his own life, and as this thing, this power, grows inside of him, he resolves to fight back, to preserve the way of life he loves.
And he’s not alone in the fight. The Lipsius Preservation Society of Brooklyn stands ready to assist in the battle, even though it seems like a bit of a joke to Darien, with its King and its Duke, Marquess, Earl and Viscount.
But there’s nothing funny about his growing attraction to Albeus Finley, King of this mysterious Court. And when slumlords and condo-mongers start to die mysterious, violent deaths at the hands of savage animals, Darien begins to realize that something is afoot in Brooklyn – something supernatural.
And it’s afoot in him, too…

The wolf’s eyes were lava-yellow with hate. His growl and his snarl were meant to terrify Darien, to freeze him in his tracks, prepare him for his death.
Then something rose up in Darien, rage, frustration, primal energy. And his own lips curled, his own growl met the enemy’s.
The Duke retreated a pace, taken aback. Darien felt sharp pains in his palms and looked down. Where he’d had fingernails, he had claws, long and sharp, and the fists he was making were digging them into his flesh.
He smiled, exhilarated, wild. He lunged and snapped at his enemy, knowing that his canines had become…literally that, elongated spikes ready to tear out a neck.
Darien’s ears were ringing, something surging in him beyond mortal feeling – like testosterone but stronger, more powerful, the smell of victory, immortality.
“The King is mine,” Darien declared. “And I am his.”
He knew he’d taken a step from which there was no turning back. He was the King’s man, the King’s consort. He would open to Albeus and take him, and be taken by him, and he would be alone no more.
He was one of the pack.
And it curdled the blood of men for miles around when he raised his face to the full moon, and howled.

Interview with Brad Vance
Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Brad Vance, author of “Werewolves of Brooklyn.” Hi Brad, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself, your background, and your current book.
Why did you choose to write M/M stories?
Umm, I’m gay! That helps. I’ve always had a vivid sexual and romantic imagination, and I’ve always been very, um, verbal. I know men, how they think, how they deal (or don’t deal) with relationships, how they handle sexual desire. Not to say that women can’t imagine that, but firsthand experience makes it easier!
What inspired you to write your first book?
I’ve been writing all my life, and published under other names, including my real legal name, Orland Outland. But I went fallow for a while. Then I read an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit by Aubrey Watt back in 2012 – she was a self described “smut writer” who talked about the business. I thought, I have a dirty mind, I can do this…so I whipped out my first story, Good Cop Bad Boy and sent it off to her. She was super enthusiastic, said ‘you can totally do this and be successful.’ And it was off to the races from there.
When and why did you begin writing?
When I could spell! I was always a writer, I wrote stories as a little kid. I always know that was what I’d be when I grew up.
What are you current projects?
I’m finishing up a science fiction story as “Adam Vance,” called “Artifice.” It’s the second in a military science fiction (with a twist) series. Then it’s off to write the next Marc and Jesse story, “Strength in Numbers.”
Off topic: What secret talents do you have?
I’m the Kitty Whisperer. All kitties love me. I project a secret pheromone that tells all kitties they can approach me and get lots of lovin’.
