Welcome debut author Ty Jacob to the blog with his new novel, The End of Billy Knight. I asked Ty to let me profile his book because I read the first chapter and was hooked. He has kindly allowed me to excerpt it here. ~ B.
Mike is a sexy young hustler. Dale is middle-aged, overweight, and aware that he’s running out of time. When they meet, their lives become connected and their dreams intertwine.
It’s Los Angeles in the 1980s, and Dale spends most of his life in drag as the fabulous Sasha Zahore. Sasha is tired of selling dildos behind the counter of Stacked & Hung. She has a dream. She wants to direct high quality gay porn – “So good it’ll make even your mama proud.”
The night Mike appears under the disco ball at the Lucky Pony, Sasha becomes determined to make him hers. Fortunately for her, Mike dreams of becoming a gay porn superstar. Sasha believes it’s a match made in heaven.
The End of Billy Knight moves between bawdy humor and deep sadness to reach beyond the obvious stereotypes. This is a complicated portrayal of two truly flawed people, both lost in their search for meaning and love.
The paperback edition of Season One of The Love of Wicked Men is ready for shipping.
The e-book edition will be out on June 12th. Just seven more days!
“This story is non-stop in its intensity… the literary equivalent of mainlining adrenaline. Loved every moment of it.” – Prism Book Alliance
“Shire has surprise mastered and we definitely reaped the benefits of that throughout this serial.” – 3 Chicks After Dark
“It’s the writing that sets this apart. Shire is a story builder. He shovels around intrigue, layers on some gritty dilemmas, and places each brick so solidly that you don’t even see where you’ve taken your misstep. Be wary of that whiplash effect, because there is going to be more than one incident of, “I didn’t see that coming!” – Attention is Arbitrary
The Love of Wicked Men is an erotic journey into the underbelly of the legal profession, the corporate culture of profit-at-any-cost, and the secret world of industrial espionage.
Sid Rivers and Jack Brown are two sides of the same coin. One is a lawyer with his own firm and dreams of money and power; the other is a criminal with a lengthy record and a quest for vengeance. When they meet, sparks fly. But was their meeting an accident? Or was it planned by the billionaires who want to control their destiny?
Last month, I asked readers to choose which of my current WIPs they’d like to see first. As you can see from the results below, it was pretty close. The Suggestion of Sex inched out Afflicted III by just one vote. A Song for Katherine and It’s Only Love were left in the dust. Manuel’s Diary and Living Queer with Mom were an even tie.
I’m already about 10k into Suggestion and have my cover artist working overtime to find just the right design. At this moment, I’m thinking this will end up being a series of three books, but that could change as the writing progresses. I’ll be sure to keep you updated.

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.
Here’s to a summer filled with great reading and fabulous summer experiences!

First of all, before I even get started, I need to say thanks to Brandon. As I was typing the name of this document to make sure it got saved properly, my Mac reminded me gently that I already had a “Blog post for Brandon Shire” in my folder. Curiosity kills the cat, so I looked and yes, back in July 2013, just days after I had published my first two novels, Brandon had me on his blog, giving me a chance to talk about them.
This is my third appearance, I kind of missed out on “The Fallen Angels of Karnataka”, but it’s like coming home, and I’m very grateful for the opportunity. Brandon is one of the first authors I got to know on Twitter after reading one of his books, and we’ve been “at it” ever since, and even though his face still eludes me, I consider him one of my author friends, a tight-knit community for sure. So here is a virtual hug and a HOORAY for having me on his blog yet again! 🙂
Today is the release day of my fifth novel. So much has changed since I first wrote “Family Ties” back in January 2013. The sensation of putting down the pen on your first book is obviously a feeling you’ll only ever have once, and it’s an emotion that stays with us for the rest of our lives. Mixed into the accomplishment are fears of “what next?”, “Is this worthy of being published?”, “Is it any good?” and “can I do this again?” I seriously doubt that I have all the answers to those questions. Apparently, my work was good enough, judging by the reviews, I managed to get the book published, and – since today marks my fifth novel – I was able to do it again.
