It's that time of the week... time for an author to pop by with their latest release. Today I've got author Jacey Holbrand with some interesting facts about her male/male romance, The Gathering
The year is 2112, and the world has changed…
Jake Landry is interested in having some fun. He’s in Las Vegas, newly single and just off his most recent tour of duty. In Vegas he has met up with his old friend Nicola Goodheart, a scientist and inventor who studies portals, other worlds, and strange beings. Jake has also met and become enamored with Alexander, a gorgeous man with violet eyes. Jake goes with Nic on a portal finding mission, and they all end up in Alexander’s alien world.
Recruiter Alexander Bloodworth is interested in Jake for himself and in Nicola for placement in a pleasure house on his home planet of Aurath. When he hears word one of his people’s enemies are after Nicola and Jake, he goes to save them both, even at the peril of losing his job.
Will they risk their hopes and dreams—Alexander and Jake for a chance at love and Nicola for her career—or will they falter and lose everything anyway?
Top 10 for The Gathering by Jacey Holbrand
Because The Gathering starts off in a futuristic Las Vegas, NV setting, I wanted to share some interesting factoids about the area that tie into the story.
10. 1946: The Pink Flamingo opens, built by notorious mobster Bugsy Siegel. It is the first luxury hotel on the Strip, It would become The Fabulous Flamingo in 1947, The Flamingo Hilton in 1974, and Flamingo Las Vegas in 1999.1
9. Nevada State Route 375 is also known as Extraterrestrial Highway. The highway was given the name in 1996. 2
8. Along the Extraterrestrial Highway you'll find the Black Mailbox (though now it's actually white). It's a locked box that's protected by a quarter-inch-thick bulletproof metal, located along Tikaboo Valley off a dirt road (which leads to the restricted Area 51). Allegedly, there are between two to three UFO sightings here a week!3
7. If you get hungry or need a place to sleep for the night, pull over to the Little A'le'inn, a bar, restaurant and motel. Here you can order the "Alien burger" and learn about Area 51. 3
6. Lake Mead – The massive body of water was created in 1936 after the construction of the Hoover Dam on the Colorado River. 4
5. Lake Mead hasn’t been officially full—1,221 feet above sea level—since 1983.4
4. This year (2014), thanks to a wetland rehabilitation project in Mexico, the Colorado briefly reached the Sea of Cortez again for the first time since the El Niño floods of 1998. Before humans started tampering with building massive dams on the Colorado, it did so every year. 4
3. A decade ago, Lake Mead was home to nine boat launch ramps and six marinas. Six ramps and three marinas remain open today.5
2. People used to come to Las Vegas to watch the nuclear testing that happened outside of the city limits. The National Atomic Testing Museum is in Las Vegas.6
1. Although most people are completely unaware of its existence, the UFO-Nukes Connection is now remarkably well-documented. U.S. Air Force, FBI, and CIA files declassified via the Freedom of Information Act establish a convincing, ongoing pattern of UFO activity at American nuclear weapons sites extending back to December 1948.7
