Wicked Men – Season 2 #teaser #excerpt

Just thought I’d offer a peek at my rough draft to give you an idea about what Jack and Sid are up to in Season Two of Wicked Men. Feel free to leave your comments below.  ~ B.

SEASON TWO – THE LOVE OF WICKED MEN (DRAFT)

Jack was in Philadelphia when he first caught sight of the tail. He noticed the same man three months later when he was in the Keys, and then a third time in LA. At first, he thought the guy might have been working for Wessman or the Feds, but they would’ve moved in on him long before now.

This tail was too casual. He didn’t seem to mind showing himself now and again, but he never got close enough for Jack to clock his ass and demand information. His presence was meant to be an irritating reminder that someone was keeping tabs. [Read more…]

Spotlight on paranormal M/M – Awakened

Welcome Kenneth Creech to the blog with his paranormal M/M novel, Awakened. 

awakenedBlurb

Caleb McEllis has been haunted by the same nightmare for as many years as he can remember; he is swallowed by darkness and unable to escape. Which was the perfect metaphor for the small conservative town where he grew up. Once he graduated from high school, he vowed to never return, hoping to escape the teasing he experienced since childhood.

On his way to work one night, his nightmare comes to life and something in the darkness comes for him, causing him to careen off the freeway and flip his car. During the ensuing chaos, a stranger pulls Caleb from the wreckage moments before lighting it on fire. As the night continues, Caleb discovers that this stranger knows more about him than he should, perhaps even more than Caleb knows about himself.

Caleb is forced to trust the stranger or run the risk of being killed by whatever attacked him on the road. He soon learns that the things he thought he knew about himself are based on lies he’s been told since childhood and as they unravel he is forced to confront the truth about what he really is. In order to survive, Caleb must let go of his past and embrace his true nature. Proof that puberty is hard for everyone, but for Caleb, it could be murder.

Awakened is a young adult paranormal fiction novel that is infused with humor and a little bit of male on male romance. It’s a twist on the traditional shifter genre, and will leave you wanting more! Awakened is the first in the series.

#ThrowbackThursday – The Value of Rain

Four years ago today, I published my first novel. Since then, it has gained much acclaim, even with its dark subject matter.  It is not fluff and was never meant to be. This is a dark journey, one which some people have taken in real life.

A few of those travelers survived, most did not.

Blurb:

When love is locked away, it turns to vengeance.

Charles is 14, and after being discovered with his first love he is forced into a mental hospital to ‘cure’ his sexuality.

For the next ten years, Charles endures mental and physical torture as part of his treatment. When he is finally free, he begins a relentless quest for vengeance against the woman who abetted his commitment – his mother, Charlotte.

The Value of Rain chronicles a journey from hate to the unexpected beginning of redemption and reveals the destructive nature of families, secrets and revenge.

Reviews:

The prose is fluidly elegant, a symphony of phrasing that will stop you dead in your tracks with its sheer audacity and style. Mr. Shire brings to the literary landscape a unique and compelling voice and a storytelling style that grabs you by those inelegant short hairs and refuses to let go. It is sensual and distancing, allowing emotional respite without permitting release. It is literary, intelligent, and quite simply the best book I have read in years.

Gay Film – The International Version

I enjoy gay cinema, particularly foreign gay cinema which to me, often seems so much richer than what’s usually produced here in the US. So here’s a spotlight on just a few. Hope you enjoy.

Boys Like US – Germany

Rudolf, Gabriel and Nicolas are best buddies and very similar. They’re not just all in their thirties and gay, but also lovable, big-city neurotics. After an abrupt end to a relationship, Rudolf wants to leave Paris. He wants to get his life back on track, and the best place for this mammoth task seems to him to be the picturesque place of his birth in the Austrian mountains.
When Gabriel and Nicolas learn of his plans, they quickly decide to follow. This charming trio is not clear what lies ahead …

BOYS LIKE US – Offizieller deutscher Trailer from Queer Cinema TV on Vimeo.

Scrum – Australia

The lives of a self-assured Canadian jock, a chubby Irish backpacker and a stoic Japanese outsider change when they vie for a position in the gay rugby world cup.

SCRUM TRAILER from Poppy Stockell on Vimeo.

Candy – Korea

Gay teen Candy can’t seem to make friends at high school. He is drawn to Cheolsoo, who is also a loner, but neither has the ability to save one another. Candy, now an adult, is living with Cheolsoo. He goes to meet his First Love, so he can get rid of an older man who is annoying him, but the former eventually deserts him. In the end, it is Cheolsoo who accompanies Candy to meet the older man, but Cheolsoo cannot help Candy.
