Hi, all. I’m CJane Elliott and first want to thank K-Lee for inviting me to participate in this wonderful blog tour of gratitude and giving. I had the pleasure of meeting K-Lee when we were roomies at GRL this year. Many epic adventures ensued!
I’m grateful for so many things. I’m grateful that I get to live in the United States, despite all its problems. I’m in the Pacific Northwest and it’s a lovely part of our country. I’m grateful that my husband and I picked up stakes and moved here ten years ago, along with our son. I’m grateful for my husband’s unflagging support and love for me, and his willingness to go along with the many crazy ideas I’ve had over the years. I’m grateful for my son who has become a great young man, a feminist, an LGBTQ rights supporter, and a creative and funny person.
I’m grateful for music, art, and theater, movies, books, and dance. All have contributed immeasurably to the quality of my life. I love the creators, the artists, the poets… all who make this poor world a more beautiful place.
GIVEAWAY: I’m especially grateful to all you readers who love m/m romance! I am giving away any of my ebooks. You can find the list here: CJane Elliott

I’m celebrating the release of my new novella, There You Are, which is now available for preorder and will be published on December 23. It’s the 2nd book in my Wild and Precious Series.
Bisexual musician Cody Bellstrom is a free spirit, easygoing and unattached. On a cross-country trip, Cody befriends young Sandy Nixon and gets him safely to Portland and his uncle, Phineas MacDonald. Beautiful Phineas turns Cody’s life upside down, and Cody learns he's not as unattached as he aspires to be. With the hard-won knowledge of what lies underneath his need to be free, Cody wins a chance at real freedom and true love.
Ever since his longtime lover Allen died, Phineas MacDonald has lived a circumscribed life. He stopped performing as fierce drag queen Phanny Hill and works part-time in a bookstore. Phineas never expected to find love again. But when sexy and caring Cody Bellstrom turns up, Phineas feels his orderly life slipping out of his control. Cody brings him alive again, but now Phineas must find the courage to let go of his grief over Allen and give love a second chance.
After years of hearing characters chatting away in her head, CJane Elliott finally decided to put them on paper and hasn’t looked back since. A psychotherapist by training, CJane enjoys writing sexy, passionate stories that also explore the human psyche. CJane has traveled all over North America for work and her characters are travelers, too, traveling down into their own depths to find what they need to get to the happy ending.
CJane is an ardent supporter of LGBTQ equality and is particularly fond of coming out stories.
In her spare time, CJane can be found dancing, listening to music, or watching old movies. Her husband and son support her writing habit by staying out of the way when they see her hunched over, staring intensely at her laptop.
