Celebrating A New Book And Series For Winona Wilder

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating the release of Winona Wilder's new book CHOOSING LOVE, the first book in Winona's Coming Out Series!

Winona Wilder enjoys delving into the human mind and exploring emotion. She savors the challenge of mixing smoking hot sex with lovable, complex characters.

When not spending time with her husband and children in the Great Canadian North, she's typing away at her next alternative romance.

She also writes bestselling erotic and menage romance as Stacey Espino.


CHOOSING LOVE - Coming Out Book One by Winona Wilder

Cal has hidden his true feelings from Waylon for years, not willing to jeopardize their friendship. After a night of drunken passion, the truth finally comes out. While Cal learns to accept his true nature, Waylon is afraid to risk alienating his family. Will he live in denial or choose love?

With the help of their sexy history teacher, Evan, the three men learn that love has no boundaries. But are evenings filled with hot sex enough to forge a lasting ménage?

  1. Super congrats on the new book Winona...I just read the, very hot.

    Tell us a bit about your new series and how the books will connect. Will they all be menages?

    Now this is your first M/M right? But you've written many erotic books as Stacey Espino, tell us a bit about her books - I know she's got a busy month this month.

    Best of luck with the new release, hope it's bestseller for you and enjoy your party!

  2. Congratulations on your new release. What's the hardest thing about writing a m/m story? What is your favorite genre to read and write?

  3. Thanks, DeNita!!!

    Choosing Love is the first book in the 'Coming Out' series. We briefly meet Waylon's brother James at the end of the book. He's the hero for the next book in the series, Cowboy Drifter. It's coming soon to Siren Publishing.

    The first book was a menage a trois, but the second book just the two men. It was going to be a menage, but the characters didn't agree. LOL

    My Stacey Espino books are m/f and m/f/m+ I have two releases this week...
    Taming Jenna (sequel to Saving Grace) from Siren Publishing on April 14th. It's a western menage a trois. m/f/m
    and Claiming Their Mate (Pack Seduction, #1)from Evernight Publishing on April 15th. It's a paranormal/shifter menage a cinq. m/f/m/m/m.

  4. Hello Winona!
    I haven't read a m/m/m menage before. I've read m/m and m/m/f. In the past few months I have realized how much I enjoy the m/m romances. Congratulations on your new release. I think it sounds lovely.

  5. Hi Sherry,

    The hardest thing about writing m/m is keeping the characters real. They're men, not women-in-pants, and it's important for me to capture their personality just right.

    I love to read paranormal romance.

    As for writing, I certainly enjoy writing my Winona Wilder books. I love a challenge and variety in my writing.

    I love writing my westerns and paranormals as Stacey Espino, too :)

    Thank for your question!

  6. Good Morning - what made you decide on using different names for the different genres?

    Missy Martine

  7. Hi Stacie,

    Thank you! I'm so used to writing menage as Stacey Espino, that it seems natural to write my first m/m as a menage. I loved the way it turned out :)

  8. Missy! <3

    There are some readers who don't like to read m/m in whole or part in their books. I felt the penname would help separate the two genres for my readers so there was no confusion.

    Stacey Espino books, even the menage ones, have no m/m interaction. However, my Winona Wilder books are only m/m or m/m/m.

  9. Congratulations on book1 in your new series. Loved the excerpt. Nice to start off my work week with a hot excerpt.

  10. Congratulations on the new release.
    how many books will be in this new series?

  11. Thanks, Anne. Glad you liked it :)

  12. Elaine, I'm working on book 3 now with a character introduced in book 2. Not sure how far I'll take it. Guess the characters will decide.


  13. I LOVE menage stories and would love to read this! What's the best part of writing a menage story and how many more do you plan on writing?

  14. Hi Joder,

    I mostly write menage and never plan to stop!!

    The emotional bond between all the characters is such a balancing act to write. I love the challenge...and the sex is hot!


  15. Love the hot hot...can not go wrong with 3 hot men...

    I enjoy your menage mmf...and read you will continue with that...are you going to continue w/mmm and keep it under the Winona persona or do you plan on adding female interaction with them? never afraid of mm interaction with a gal in the room...maybe this won't frighten me either..

  16. Hey Chele!

    Thanks for stopping by. I will always write m/f/m+ with my real name, Stacey Espino.

    I'll keep writing m/m and m/m/m as Winona to separate the genres.

    No plans on mixing things up ;)

  17. Congrats on your release. Loved the exerpt. Definitely made me want to pick up a copy.

  18. Looks like a good book and series. Do friends/relatives have difficulty accepting what you write?

  19. Hi She,

    I use my real name for my erotic romance and don't hide my Winona penname.

    There is nothing wrong with sex. It's natural and everyone does it.

    If people have a problem with what I write, then I suggest they don't read it.

    Most of my family has been supportive.

  20. Hi, Winona.

    I'm familiar with Stacey Espino's works; what a great surprise for me to find you are her!

    Why did you decide to write under pseudonym?

    I love m/m novels and look forward in reading yours.

  21. Hi Tracey!

    Thank you :)

    I didn't want my m/f/m+ and m/f readers to get a shocker if they picked up an m/m book without realizing it.

    The pseudonym is just for my m/m and m/m/m. Everything else will be under my real name.

    I love writing both!

  22. Congratulations on the start of this new series. I enjoy stories about discovery and seeing how the characters develop and am interested in seeing just how the personalities in this relationship shape up.

  23. Happy release week, Winona. Love m/m storylines, but this might be my first m/m/m, and after peeking at the wonderfully erotic excerpt, I can't wait to read more about these three.

  24. Thank you, Leni and Cathy.

    I hope you enjoy, Choosing Love!

  25. I had planned to ask the difference between your Winona Wilder boooks and your Stacey Espino books but you answered my question above. Gosh, I don't have another question. Thanks for the giveaway.
