MM MARCH MADNESS!!
Twinsie Talk is proud to present the 3rd Annual MM March Madness – a month to focus on the M/M, F/F, M/M/F, M/F/M authors. We love these books and want to share it with the rest of the world. Each day we will post an interview. We will also include any reviews that we have done on these books as well as links to the books.
Our hope is that you will love this genre as much as we do! <3
Today is devoted to Jenna Galicki
Jenna Galicki writes in multiple genres including m/m/f, m/f, and m/m. She is predominantly known for her Radical Rock Stars Series. The Prince of Punk Rock (Radical Rock Stars Book 1) was a finalist in the 2015 Bisexual Book Awards.
Jenna is a strong advocate for LGBT rights and marriage equality. A native New Yorker, she recently relocated to Southern California with her husband and two dogs. She’s a Rottweiler enthusiast and an avid music buff. When she’s not hunched over a computer, you can find her front row at a rock concert.
Tell us about something about you (not included in your normal author bio) that maybe not everyone knows about you.
I’m a huge animal lover. I’ve been a vegetarian since I was a teenager and stopped consuming all milk products about 5 years ago. I’m working my way to vegan.
There’s been a trend in writing a series. How do you feel about series? Do you write them? Do you think they are easier or harder?
I have written a rock star series, but it wasn’t my intention. The original story about Angel, Tommy and Jessi was a big one and halfway through writing it, I knew it needed to be 2 books. As it turned out, it needed to be 3 books. While writing the first book (The Prince of Punk Rock) I new right away that Damien had a backstory that needed to be told. I knew his past in my head and loved his story. It needed to be put on paper and shared. The other characters evolved and Jimmy’s story also needed to be told. It actually worked out very well in regard to the original story about Angel, Tommy and Jessi because their relationship needed time to progress and develop before they found balance.
Where do you do most of your writing?
I usually write in my home office with my 2 dogs at my feet, but I always take either my tablet with me in case the opportunity arises.
What are you currently reading? Any suggestions for your favorite books (beside your own, of course)?
Caught! by JL Merrow (smart is the new sexy! 🙂 )
Do you feel that this genre is growing? And what do you contribute to that growth or decline?
I think the m/m genre has exploded. I have no idea why, but I’m very happy about it. I want to see boy/boy on the shelf right next to boy/girl.
What is the most surprising thing you have learned about writing?
I’m surprised at the velocity of stories running around in my head! They take control of themselves and have their own path. I have my foot on the gas, but the characters are the ones driving.
What are you working on now?
The last novel in the Radical Rock Stars Series, Punk Rock-A-Bye Baby, was released on Jan 27. I have a m/m short in the Hearts Afire Anthology that was published on Feb. 14.
What is your favorite thing to do on a Saturday night?
Go to a rock concert!
Tell us about the highest HIGH and lowest LOW in your career so far. How has it changed you?
The highest point had to from the Bisexual Book Awards. The Prince of Punk Rock was a finalist in the Romance Category. This was voted on by a panel at The Biwriters Association. They probably never heard of me or my books before they read The Prince of Punk Rock. It was an honor.
Low point? That’s a hard one to answer. This has been an incredible ride.

The Prince of Punk Rock Review
So my blog is focusing on MM FF MMF MFM and all the mixes in the middle this month (March 2014). I saw the promo for this book and thought WOW and it even would fit with our theme so I reached out to the author for a copy. I sat and read this book in not time at all. I couldn’t put it down. These characters captured my heart and attnetion from the very first page.
Tommy is some kinda lucky man. He is married to Jessi. She knows he is bisexual and will do anything to make him happy. She allows him to bring men home and she watches and even participated with Tommy while the other male is playing with Tommy too…however no touching of Jessi is allowed….They have a happy marriage and the world is good. Tommy gets a message to meet this Angel guy for an opportunity in his up and coming band. Jesse and Tommy go and BOOM INSTANT chemistry. Angel and Tommy have this instant pull. Jessi even sees it and does some match making. I was thinking “man she is some kind of awesome to be OK with this and even encouraging it.” The three start to have a happy relationship but you see Jessi have cracks….she is begining to wonder if Angel will take Tommy away. Along the way of the story, there is great band news, unhappy family revilations and alot of sex….snickers…but you prolly figured that right??!!
Angel is VERY gay and even when Jessi is trying to seduce him, he will not budge. I have to admit I felt the sting of the rejection like Jessi did and was a little bit sad that Tommy never picked up on it. He is intune with this wife but sometimes I felt Angel was more intune with her and their love was platonic.
I was devistaed in the story when you find out about the secret that Tommy adn Angel kept from Jessi. I too was so hurt that this woman who sacraficed everything willingly for the man she loved would keep things from her. I was proud of her for standing by his and Angels side to take care of the drama nbut hurt like she was. I also was very happy with her postion at the end of the story. I am happy to see Jessi taking care of Jessi. I read the blurb for book 2 and I have to admit my heart is hurting at the drama that will be taking place in book 2…..omg i dont know if i cant take it……..
When I read the first book if the series I was just hooked! I mean a married couple with an openly bisexual husband who has a curious wife that opens her marriage to an openly gay man….and it works!!!
Well this part of the book really , really makes it hard for the threesome. Jessi can’t go on tour with Angel and Tommy. She has to stay behind and finish school. The time without Jessi was a little “honeymoon: for Angel and Tommy. However, Jessi gets very insecure of their relationship. Words between her and angel are not nice and Tommy is pulled between the two loves of his live. His wife means everything but his partner is just as important.
Well, Angel and Jessi find some common gournd and realize that they both are insecure when it comes to the other. Angel is afraid that if it doesnt work out, he is the one getting walking papers because Jessi is the LEGAL spouse of Tommy.
When that drama is worked out Jessi has new drama to work out with her new business. Tommy realizes that Jessi is his rock and roll heart and soul. If she will not be able to participate in the tours and travel, then he is done with the music industry. He has realized he is a bit of a slacker with both his loves and is going to step up his game to prove his loyalty and love to them both.
The next book, I am soooo excited to read. It is going to be a great story. I cannot wait for it either!!
AHHH!! This book!! I loved it so much!! I have been a big fan of the series and was super stoked to see that the trio would be having a baby. Jessi, Tommy and Angel have come full circle in this series. They have embraced their polyamorous lifestyle. They have also been able to put all jealousy to rest and been open to a full, loving relationship.
When Tommy decides to officially marry Angel, I was so excited. Too also see Jessi as on board made me happy. When the three officially become a family and they decide on adding a baby, I. WAS. STOKED!! Their honeymoon does end up causing some trouble for them in the future but the trauma also helps to reinforce their bonds. The ending chapters made my heart pitter patter but I can’t say why because I think it was the best part of the book. It made my heart soar!!! It was the unexpected Cream Cheese Frosting on my already perfect Red Velvet Cake Book!!!
I loved seeing the rest of the band and am hopeful that we may see another punk rock baby from Alyssa and or Audra???? Maybe? Perhaps? I would be down for reading about Damien and Alyssa because his is my FAVORITE of the guys!!
