After defeating Meglar at Belsport, Farrell returns to Haven to recover from his injuries, but Khron, the god of war, has other ideas. He gives Farrell a new mission: free the survivors of the ancient dwarf realm of Trellham from their three-thousand-year banishment. To fulfill Khron’s near impossible task, Farrell will need the help of his distance ancestor, the legendary wizard Kel. But Kel has been dead for a thousand years.

Farrell finds information hinting that Kel is alive, so he moves his search to Dumbarten, Kel’s birthplace.

While attempting to subdue the attack, Farrell is struck down by one of Meglar’s minions. [Read more…]

Dear Henry… Gay Humor on stage in NYC

Friend, author, and playwright Arthur Wooten has a new play hitting the stage in NYC and you won’t want to miss it if you happen to be in the Big Apple on Monday April 27, Sunday May 3, or Saturday, May 9. 

dear henry playbillBrandon: This is a one-man show, is that correct?

Arthur: Yes. It stars the highly accomplished Luke Doyle and revolves around a man writing letters to his boyfriend Henry, who is regaling the numerous and crazy shenanigans (both sexual and non) the two have gotten into during their relationship.

Brandon: How did you come up with this?

Arthur: In 2008 & 2009 I was the humorist for the London-based Magazine reFRESH. I wrote this as a column. reFRESH readers fell in love it and couldn’t wait for the next installment. Soon I had Brits (both gay and straight) waiting to see what the two would get into next. That column became the jumping off point for the show.

A Heart-pounding #erotic #legalthriller

mm romance, gay romance3 Chicks After Dark gives 5 Bad Ass Stilettos to Episode 5 of the Love of Wicked Men

“Heart-pounding action in this episode of The Love of Wicked Men! The twists and turns keep on as well as the deceit. It’s hard to know who is being played and what side people are on. If you love the thrill of suspense and the intrigue of a well-played game of corporate greed, this series won’t disappoint.

There’s so much going on in this episode, a true thriller from the first to the last page. With all the surprises and reveals, I can’t wait to see how it all wraps up in the next and final episode.”

Welcome debut author James Lee Hard with his new gay romance, Stripped Expectations.

stripped expectationsBook Blurb:

Hunky Mark is unemployed, penniless and living off the help of his friends. His life orbits around sex encounters that leave him with a bitter aftertaste. He went from skinny tall guy to hunk in a few years, after promising himself not to let anyone beat him again. But Mark still struggles with his self-image because underneath all of his muscles he still feels like a clumsy teenager.
His life starts to change when a stranger approaches Mark offering him a job as a stripper. Mark immediately dismisses it as another lame attempt at getting him laid. But his desperate need for money makes him think twice. He ends up surrounded by gorgeous men, his first true love and a past that just refuses to go away.

Anaxantis, prince of Ximerion.

You will hate him… if your heart isn’t big enough.

While the kingdom of Ximerion is threatened at its southern border by a major power, the high king sends his two youngest sons, the half brothers Anaxantis and Ehandar, as Lord Governors to the Northern Marches where minor raids by wild barbarians are expected. Under the guidance of an old and trusted general, the king hopes to keep the young princes far from the major conflict in the south, while at the same time providing them with a valuable learning experience. The estranged half brothers are rivals, but soon they feel attracted to each other. As if this was not enough of a complication, they begin to suspect that they were set up by their own father. The result is a fierce struggle for power where the lines between hate and love become almost indistinguishable and where nothing is what it seems.
