Thanks so much to Jay for letting me come onto the blog today!

I’m Jordan L. Hawk, a trans author currently haunting western MA. I’ve never been on a cruise before, so I’m really looking forward to setting sail aboard the Celebrity Reflection with the Rainbow Readers Cruise.

I mainly write paranormal historical romance, alongside my contemporary vampire series SPECTR. I’m probably best known for my eleven-book Whyborne & Griffin series (starting with Widdershins).

My most recent series is OutFoxing the Paranormal. Ghost hunter Oscar Fox falls in love with trans parapsychology researcher Dr. Nigel Taylor, while they search abandoned locations for evidence of the paranormal.

And, just for readers of this blog, I’ve created a special discount on my books! If you buy direct from my site,, you can get 20% off your entire order between now and June 1. Just use code RRBLOGTOUR at checkout!

Parapsychologist Dr. Nigel Taylor doesn’t work with psychic mediums. Until, that is, a round of budget cuts threatens his job and an eccentric old woman offers him a great deal of grant money. The only catch: he must investigate a haunted house with a man she believes to have a true gift.

Oscar Fox, founder of the ghost-hunting team OutFoxing the Paranormal, has spent his life ignoring the same sort of hallucinations that sent his grandmother to an insane asylum. When he agrees to work with the prestigious—and sexy—Dr. Taylor, he knows he’ll have to keep his visions under wraps, so his team can get a desperately needed pay day.

Soon after Nigel, Oscar, and the OtP team arrive at the house, the questions begin to pile up. Why is there a blood stain in the upstairs hallway? What tragedy took place in the basement? And who is the spirit lurking in the closet of a child’s bedroom?

One thing is certain: if Oscar can’t accept the truth about his psychic abilities, and Nigel can’t face the demons of his past, they’ll join the forgotten souls of the house…forever.


Jordan L. Hawk writes queer fiction with a helping of eldritch monsters and things that go bump in the night. His best-selling Whyborne & Griffin series was voted Favorite All-Time M/M Series in 2015 by the Goodreads M/M Romance Group. He spends his free time making video game characters fall in love in the Sims.
