Book Blurb:

Andy isn’t planning on a relationship getting in the way of his career. He needs to prove himself invaluable to his boss, Gordy. Things get messed up the minute Gordy introduces him to his son, Cody, who will be working under Andy for the summer.

At first glance, Andy knows the guy is trouble. Cody is a lethal combination of a pretty face and a very rugged physique. Cody makes him achingly hot, which confuses and angers him. He likes rough-looking men, not pretty boys, even if this particular pretty face comes with a brutally sculpted body. Not only that, the dude is his boss’s son!

Cody also feels the same burning desire. It flusters him, as he’s determined to remain in the closet. Cody knows full well being gay won’t be accepted by his family. Besides, Andy is rude and short-tempered from the start. Who needs someone like that in their life?

Regardless, the heat between the two men refuses to die own. It’s going to be a long, hot summer.

A summer neither man will soon forget.

Again, Wicked Heat  is FREE  On Amazon.com for three days starting today, May 29 through Sunday, May 31, with another book following for .99 each week for 5 weeks.

Spotlight on Gay Romance – Private Performance

Private Performance

private performanceBook 1: Jason had sworn to never care for a guy again before taking it slow and easy when it came to the relationship department. He’d chosen poorly once. By the time he walked away his self-esteem had been in shreds.

Z is a dynamic, sensual rock star in the making. His band is hoping to hit the big-time and they’re getting close. He realized long ago his lifestyle had no room for a long-term relationship.

Then Z plays at Boys Will Be Boys, a popular gay club for a charity event, and Jason has a front row table. When their eyes meet it seems destiny has other plans for the two young men. Both tell themselves it can’t work out. They should just enjoy one night of hot sex and move on. [Read more…]

Curated e-Books by Women, for Women

So I came across Shebooks and thought what a great idea it was. I’m sure there are other subscription sites like it out there, which curate books for a particular audience and are successful with it. But this site particularly caught my eye because it deals mainly with shorts and flash fiction (which I’ve just started writing).

There’s no doubt that readers enjoy long books and series, but many times you just don’t have the time. You need a quick book fix, like right now. After poking around some, what really struck me was the quality of the reads available. This isn’t mediocre fan fiction you’ll find on a lot of other sites, these are solid authors who know their craft. I was impressed.  The only drawback I saw was that the books are only available via tablet or smartphone, but as they grow, maybe that will change.  Check them out, let me know what you think. (I’d like to see something like this for lgbt fiction.)

For those of my female author friends who write MM, I didn’t see any on site, so this may be an opportunity for you to branch out. Especially as the genre grows. Check their FAQ for details.

Oops, I Didn’t Know I Couldn’t Write About Sex

Welcome friend and author Brian Centrone with a few words concerning his new short story collection, Erotica which features seven stories, one for every sin.

erotica-brian-centrone-cover-ebook-WEBD.H. Lawrence got in trouble over it. Anne Rice used a pen name to write it. E.L. James made a fortune off it. No one can deny that sex sells, yet it remains controversial. The mere mention of erotica sends literary noses pointed toward the heavens in a triumphant stance of superiority. For the majority of the literary world, erotica is not literature at all.

The truth is that some believe erotica is cheap. They dismiss it with other genre writing like Sci Fi or Romance. Many see these types of stories as inferior to scholarly or academic works. I disagree. I won’t argue that some erotica is pure smut, merely words to get off by, but not all, and certainly not mine. I believe that there is such a thing as “literary erotica,” and I consider my work to fall into that category. Why? Because I write erotic stories the way I write any fiction. I use the building blocks of literature to craft and develop tales which seek for more than just to lube a reader up. My stories aren’t about sex. They feature sex, yes, and prominently—that’s the nature of erotica—but they are always about something more: love, relationships, self-discovery. [Read more…]

The Elevator – A Short by Theo Fenraven

Welcome LGBT Author Theo Fenraven to the blog with an exclusive short story just for us.

The Elevator

equalityWe were running late, and when we saw the elevator open across the lobby, we darted straight toward it and inside, smiling at each other as the doors shut.

Only a few more minutes, and it would be done.

My heart was beating in my throat and I was sweating with nerves. Judging by Chris’s paleness, he wasn’t feeling like the Rock of Gibraltar either.

The elevator bumped to a stop between the first and second floor. We stared at each other, aghast.

“You don’t think…?” Chris said in a hushed voice.

I glared at the closed door. “That we’re stuck? Yeah, I think.”

I pounded on the door while we both yelled “Help!” Like that would do any good, but it would have felt weird if we hadn’t done it. It was like not walking under a ladder or throwing spilled salt over your shoulder. Some things, you just had to do.

“Shit.” Chris’s eyes welled, and he blinked rapidly to prevent the tears from falling. “They’re all waiting.”

“They’ll keep waiting,” I assured him, pushing the emergency button. [Read more…]

Ordinary Heroes – Gay Couples

I originally posted this on Chick n Dicks (they’re generous enough to invite me around once in a while) when they were doing an Ordinary Hero’s segment for the month of February. In light of the president’s endorsement yesterday and the fact that I personally believe that gay couples CAN change people’s misconceptions just by being who they are, I have re-posted it again here, with a few edits for SFW reading. 

gay, lgbt, Let’s face it, we like our escapist reading. We love the hot swarthy men who jump into the fray, take down the bad guys with claws, fangs and superpowers; and it’s even better when they’re having really hot m/m sex right after. (Got to burn off all that adrenaline somehow!)

I read a lot of different genres and it always struck me that some of the most ordinary characters in the books were, in fact, the ones that had the most profound impact; the unsung heroes that allowed the main character his glory.

But that reflects in real life too, because it’s usually not the one in front of the podium that’s made the change in someone’s life. It’s the person you never hear of, the one that doesn’t do it for the glory, or the attention, or (let’s face it) the really hot sex. They do it because it’s right, because their heart says that there is more to being human than just taking.

It might be someone like that accountant you noticed but never really saw. You know the one pushing his pencil around all day, tapping at keys and making sure all the numbers are right. Then he goes home to his quiet life and…

Stephen Dobbins – Guest Post

Dad was a diplomat, or so I was told. Honestly I was too young to understand or care. He might have been MI5 for all I knew. The only thing I understood was that he was gone a good bit, and that when he was home we were an inseparable lot; me, my mum and him.

My parents loved me a great deal and I always felt loved even when I thought that I was different from other boys. But they loved each other even more and I could see it each time their eyes met. Maybe that was why their death hurt me so much, because their love for each other was the spark in my small world that told me how much I was loved.

When my dad left in the mornings my mum’s last touch was just a light whisper of her fingertips, as if enticing him to hurry through the day and come back home again. And when he did return there was always a small cuddle in the foyer, or the kitchen, or wherever he caught Mum unawares. I use to watch them when he snuck in and winked at me, a conspirator’s nod before he ambushed Mum with his simple affections. It always made me smile.  [Read more…]
