    Blurb:


    Alex is a womanizer. He makes no excuses for it. Yes, he picks up women at the local bar, leaving them with just a memory of a good night and a good lay, but he hasn't had any complaints yet. That is, until he picks up the wrong woman. Not satisfied to be tossed aside as just another notch in Alex's bedpost, she curses him, wishing he “knew what it was like for a woman.” And he's about to find out what she means, embarking on a genderswap journey that he can't stop.


    Alex starts slowly gaining secondary female characteristics. Waking up with his cock gone, replaced by a vagina, was bad enough. Then it gets worse, as his body becomes more like a woman than the man he used to be. Alex tries to hide the changes he's going through, for fear that someone will discover his secret, but keeping this quite literally “under wraps” might be impossible before the curse runs its course.


    With the help of his female best friend, Eve, Alex tries to deal with who he is becoming. He feels like he's lost his identity, his mind not matching the body he now has. But Eve sticks by him, and they become closer as Alex's changes progress. What started out as friendship may become something more before Alex's journey is over. Perhaps this curse was actually a blessing in disguise.

    Blurb:


    Like all good Catholic boys I care what Jesus thinks. Jesus -- both the man and the faith. Following him makes me happy. There’s just one issue… I think I’m gay. Well, it’s hard to be sure while going to an all-boys school. It could be a matter of simply liking what I know, and really, oh so very much liking what I see all day -- guys. Being gay and Catholic can’t possibly work together. Can it?


    Coming Out Catholic follows a year in the life of a private Catholic school student as he comes to terms with his sexuality. Armed with sarcasm and his best friend Mark, he prepares to take on the school thug and the awkward social encounters plaguing his late teenage years.


    Confronting himself and his family are just the beginning of his trials. He finds he must find solace with his sexual desires without surrendering any of his faith. He loves both too much to deny either one, but when the time comes he will have to decide if he must turn away from one and prepare to succumb to a life of denial, or if, by some miracle, he can find acceptance for both within himself.

    The Bohemians

    by Sean Michael

    Quincy gives away his heart too easily, and has been hurt in love more than once. Still, that doesn’t stop him from falling head over heels for Topaz when he first meets the man.


    It seems like a match made in heaven, but Topaz lives with two men who are his best friends, and also his lovers. Will Quincy ever be able to understand that Topaz has more than enough love in his heart for his best friends and his soul-mate, or will Topaz’s bohemian ways be too much for Quincy to understand?

    Signing Off - His Womanly Ways
    I am about to sign off for the night, as I transition over to all the other things I need to do for my other projects. Multi-tasking seems like a way of life lately :) Not only do I have to balance all my promotions for His Womanly Ways, but I have various other novels / novellas / anthologies upcoming in various stages of production, I work full-time, I have to continue to write so I'll have even more releases, I do media reviews for various blogs, and I am also getting my Masters degree (getting ready to enter my second year). It's a lot to do! But if didn't stay busy, I'm not sure what I'd do with my time. I just have to manage it very, very precisely in order to get it all done. Google Calendar is my friend.

    My main character, Alex, seems to have my "do it all, give 110%" mindset in his approach to work. Well, he did until his world started changing dramatically. Now, I don't expect any of us will have to deal with gradually changing from one gender to the other, but there are always life's unexpected events that throw us for a loop now and again. And it's times like those that we have to remind ourselves that slowing down or taking a different path than we intended isn't necessarily bad. It's just a different way of getting to where we need to be.

    I've enjoyed my visits on the community today and I hope you've enjoyed reading my entries. Feel free to comment on any of the blog posts, even if it's hours or days later. I'm always open to comments! And I hope you will pick up a copy of His Womanly Ways when it releases on Wednesday. It was a fun adventure for me to write, and I always intended it to be a fun (and thought-provoking) adventure for readers as well.

    Have a great night!

    Genderswap - Guilty Pleasure Versus Deeper Exploration - His Womanly Ways
    I mentioned earlier today that I wrote His Womanly Ways as a NaNoWriMo novel. The only thing I knew going in was that I wanted to do a genderswap book, but one that was unlike those I had read prior. I have always been interested in the genre, but I find most of it jumps straight to objectification rather than exploration. You're turned into another gender, so the first thing you do is feel yourself up and try to have sex with the nearest willing person? I don't buy that.

    Essentially your body doesn't match your inner self anymore. That should cause some kind of journey to either accept or reject the situation. That's what I tried to do with His Womanly Ways. Alex didn't ask for this to happen to him, and the process is gradual, as is his acceptance of the changes. His mind doesn't match the image he sees in the mirror, and that's important to realize. How the outside world perceives you can be drastically different than how you see yourself. And when they don't line up, it's quite difficult to reconcile the two at times. But I hope I stayed true to the journey Alex was on, because there are no easy answers. His journey is still ongoing.

    I come from fandom, so the incidence of genderswap as a plot point is not that uncommon. However, I enjoy the same genre well outside fandom. Two of my favorite books on the subject are Girl by David Thomas and Tiffany Twisted by Alison Tyler. If you haven't read either of these, they're worth a look. Not only are they of interest of readers in the genderswap genre, but they align with the type of exploration I was trying to do in His Womanly Ways. It's not about objectification, but instead it's about your mind not matching your body.

    Still, genderswap is often seen as a guilty pleasure. It's a genre you're supposed to keep hidden, not admit that you like, but here I am proudly proclaiming my interest in it. How about you? Do you have a guilty pleasure genre that you like to read? Do you keep it hidden or share it willingly?

    I'm returning now to my ongoing Adobe Illustrator lessons, but I should be back at least once more before the day is over. See you then!

    Red Is The Color Of His Womanly Ways
    Just got back from Wal-Mart on my search for a blank journal / artist sketchbook for my summer grad school class in graphic design. Like fate, I found one that is red-bound, and I knew that was the one for me! I love the color red. My car is red, I have red rose bushes, and I'm slowly putting accent pieces into my house that are red. In color theory, red is used to focus the eye on very powerful elements. It represents strength, determination, passion, desire, and love. All of these things are representative of my main character, Alex, too. So, I knew I wanted to utilize that color in the cover of my novel.

    I am drawn to novels by sight first, then blurb. If a cover is intriguing, it makes me want to know more. I've seen wonderful novels be compromised by a bad cover. The eye is what draws you, so it's important to make sure your cover conveys the right elements of the story. In His Womanly Ways, I wanted to focus the eye on the elements of Alex and the change that he's going through. And, working with Brandon Clay, we made my vision come to life.

    He's a business man, so the business suit shows where he started. He's also a womanizer, so the bra serves a dual purpose. It's the element of who he was (removing the bra from his bed-partners), as well as who he becomes (owning the bra himself). And the subtle change in font shows that who he was and who he has become is not drastically different on the inside, but there is indeed a change taking place on the outside. Who he is inside doesn't necessarily match who he is outside, but he is working to align the two. Where his journey will take him is uncertain, but he's trying to make it through.

    Do you have a favorite color? Does it show up a lot in your life? What draws you to this color above all others?

    I'll be back later to discuss more of His Womanly Ways. See you then!

    Happy Sunday! - K. Lynn's His Womanly Ways
    Good morning everyone! I'm hosting the LJ today to talk about my alter-ego's upcoming release, His Womanly Ways, and all things connected to it :) First up, a quick blurb in case you aren't familiar with it.

    ---
    Alex is a womanizer. He makes no excuses for it. Yes, he picks up women at the local bar, leaving them with just a memory of a good night and a good lay, but he hasn't had any complaints yet. That is, until he picks up the wrong woman. Not satisfied to be tossed aside as just another notch in Alex's bedpost, she curses him, wishing he “knew what it was like for a woman.” And he's about to find out what she means, embarking on a genderswap journey that he can't stop.

    Alex starts slowly gaining secondary female characteristics. Waking up with his cock gone, replaced by a vagina, was bad enough. Then it gets worse, as his body becomes more like a woman than the man he used to be. Alex tries to hide the changes he's going through, for fear that someone will discover his secret, but keeping this quite literally “under wraps” might be impossible before the curse runs its course.

    With the help of his female best friend, Eve, Alex tries to deal with who he is becoming. He feels like he's lost his identity, his mind not matching the body he now has. But Eve sticks by him, and they become closer as Alex's changes progress. What started out as friendship may become something more before Alex's journey is over. Perhaps this curse was actually a blessing in disguise.

    ---
    The origin of this novel is quite fun to think about. I've written a number of manuscripts over the past few years, full-length novels that are in different levels of editing. And I've written quite a few short stories and novellas, all of which have been published (or soon to be published). However, I've only done NaNoWriMo once. The push to write at such a fast pace, in such a short time, is both freeing and terrifying. But, I figured I'd give it a try once. And as a result, I completed the first draft of His Womanly Ways. This novel is unlike my usual fare of works, and perhaps that's why it came so fast to me. I let myself go and just saw where the plot would take me. And it turns out that it took me to quite an interesting place.

    Have you ever taken part in NaNoWriMo? How was the experience? Whether you finished or not, did you find it enjoyable or was the pace too fast to keep up? And have you taken away any lessons from your experiences that you still use today? I am all for the collective experience, knowing that there are so many fellow authors all writing at the same time as I am. And though it won't work for everyone, it was a nice experiement that created the novel that I wanted to write and one I hope you'll want to read.

    I'll be back in a few hours for another stop-in! Happy Sunday morning!

    Hello, I'm New
    I'm new, sort of. My name is Leigh Ellwood and though I've been published for more than a decade I have recently worked with Torquere Press. I've known many Torquere authors and read a number of stories, but it took a call for LGBT mythology collection to motivate me.

    Contemporary MM and FF are my comfort zones - only once in a while I'll venture into paranormal or SFF. When I saw the call for Mythologically Torqued, I knew I wanted to be a part of it. The idea of a match between Charon, the mythical ferryman of the River Styx, and a mortal just arrived to the underworld came immediately to mind. But Torquere asked for stories "with a twist."

    What's your image of the Ferryman? When I was younger, the original Clash of the Titans aired 20 times a day on HBO. It's probably one of the first movies I saw with partial nudity (not to mention a shirtless Harry Hamlin, yowza) and crazy special effects. Charon has a cameo; in fact, you can watch the scene on Youtube. He's little more than a skeleton in a robe there - not conducive for a sexy story - so I added my twist.

    My Charon has a speedboat. He wears Hawaiian shirts and drinks beer, and he love love loves his job. It's lonely work, but when somebody comes along to offer him company he's not going to say no.

    You can read Styx & Stone to see what happens. You can also get the whole anthology and read a large collection of sexy myths.

    If you like it, feel free to hit me up here or on Twitter @LeighEllwood. See you on the other side. ;-)

    Learn the Lingo of the Untamed World!
    So, with the very exciting news that my debut novel, UNTAMED, releases today (20 May), I thought I’d share with you a glossary of sorts. UNTAMED is a YA dystopia set in an alternate reality. It was only during the editing rounds that I realised just how many ‘unfamiliar’ terms are used in the book, and how helpful a glossary could be.

    untamed-2.jpg

    So here is that glossary:

    AUGMENTERS - these are the chemical drugs that the Enhanced Ones take to give them artificial emotions, supernatural strengths, and alter their physical appearances. Augmenters were designed as a way to eradicate crime and violence from society, as they were created to make people better. When taken (either orally or injected), these augmenters cause the person’s eyes to become the mirrors that are characteristic of the Enhanced Ones. [For more info on their eyes, see ‘EYE-MIRRORS’]. The eye-mirros from a single augmenter can last from several hours to a few days, whilst the results of the augmenters (such as specific emotions or abilities) can last for up to three days, depending on the individual and how many augmenters were taken. But taking augmenters comes at a price: the individual can’t think properly, and has little control over his or her actions. Augmenters are also highly addictive, and practically impossible to come off of. Common augmenters referred to in this novel include Kindness, Benevolence, and Compassion. Augmenters play a key role in the conversion process, when an Untamed individual becomes an Enhanced or Chosen One.

    CHIVRAS – one of the supernatural spirits present in the world. They are usually extremely dangerous, but can be helpful to the Untamed, if under the guidance of a powerful (and usually Untamed) Seer. [See ‘SEER' for more info]. Like all spirits, they are nearly always on the side of the Untamed.

    THE CHOSEN/THE CHOSEN ONES – this is what the Enhanced Ones call themselves. They believe that they have chosen to lead better, more satisfying lives--through sacrificing negative emotions to the augmenters—and that it is their duty to convert all the Untamed Ones into Chosen Ones. [For more info, see ‘The ENHANCED’].

    CONVERSION – the process of transforming an Untamed person into an Enhanced or Chosen One. The nature of the conversion depends on how willing the Untamed person is to become Enhanced. It can range from taking a couple of augmenters (and developing the lifelong addiction), to employing methods of torture to get an Untamed person’s will to submit to the Enhanced/Chosen Ones’ lifestyle.

    DEATH (the figure) – an entity who people never talk about, perhaps because they don’t believe he exists, or because of their fear of him. Very few people see Death.

    THE DREAM LAND – an altered state of reality, only accessible to Untamed Seers. The spirits and Gods and Goddesses have the power to bring Untamed Seers here, and show them short visions of the future—most often, of times when the Enhanced Ones will attack the Untamed Ones and attempt to convert them—as a way to enable the Untamed to escape before they are attacked. If an Untamed Seer is converted into an Enhanced One, they lose their access to the Dream Land.

    ENHANCED (adjective) – refers to someone’s physical state. If they have the eye-mirrors, they are said to be Enhanced, and therefore belong to the Enhanced Ones’ side in the War of Humanity.

    THE ENHANCED/THE ENHANCED ONES/THE CHOSEN/THE CHOSEN ONES (noun) – the group of people who embrace the Enhanced Ones' lifestyle, choosing to take augmenters as a way to eradicate crime and violence from the world. They believe that violence needs to be eradicated, and claim they are not murders, like the Untamed are; any Untamed who are killed during conversion attacks are because of ‘accidents’--murder isn't their intention, conversion is. The Enhanced see the Untamed Ones as a massive threat, due to their violent natures, and their goal is to convert as many of the Untamed as possible. These people believe that they are the supreme race. They call themselves ‘the Chosen/Chosen Ones’, whilst the Untamed call them ‘the Enhanced/Enhanced Ones’. The Enhanced Ones make up around ninety-five per cent of the world’s population, and they have control of all the towns and cities, food and resources. Due to the highly addictive nature of the augmenters, and the security of the Enhanced lifestyle, once a person is Enhanced it is almost impossible to convert them back to being Untamed again. Enhanced Ones are frequently referred to as being ‘robotic’ and like ‘machines’.

    ENHANCED SEER – this is a person who is now an Enhanced One, but who was given the gift of being a Seer when they were Untamed. [For more info on Seers, see ‘SEER’]. Upon conversion to the Enhanced life, a Seer loses their ability to see the future (as the spirits and Gods and Goddesses no longer summon them to the Dream Land to warn them of attacks, as they have switched sides in the war), but Enhanced Seers retain the other Seer powers, such as mind control.

    EYE-MIRRORS – All the Enhanced Ones are said to have ‘eye-mirrors’ due to the effects of the augmenters. An ingredient was added to the recipe for all augmenters that makes their eyes metallic in surface, acting as a one-way mirror. This is seen as the perfect solution for protecting the Enhanced Ones’ souls from the Untamed, as the eyes are the gateway to the soul. When one looks at an Enhanced being, all they can see in the Enhanced One's eyes is their own reflection, whilst the Enhanced One can see perfectly.

    GODS AND GODDESSES – the invisible entities who the Untamed actively worshipped long ago. They are still referred to in times of need, and are prayed to (as a collective group) regularly by the Untamed, but no one has seen a God or Goddess. Gods and Goddesses are acknowledged as having great power, and when an Untamed person has his or her first Seeing dream and becomes a Seer, it is accepted that the Gods and Goddesses and Spirits have made that person a Seer.

    NEW WORLD – an Untamed concept. The New World is the place where people’s souls/spirits are sent to after death. The journey to the New World can be difficult, and therefore the Spirit Releasing Words should be said over the body, as soon as possible. Some Untamed believe that setting a body off down a river gives a better chance of the soul/spirit reaching the New World quickly.

    RUNNING LEAN –an Enhanced/Chosen One is said to be ‘running lean’ if he or she needs to top up their augmenter levels.

    SEEING DREAM – the type of dream that Untamed Seers have when they are brought to the Dream Land by the spirits, Gods or Goddesses. Seeing dreams give Untamed Seers warnings of future attacks, and these dreams are often mistaken for reality by the Seer at the time of the vision, as they start seamlessly from the last point of consciousness for the Seer, and are highly vivid and realistic in nature. All Seeing dreams feature the image of a bison in the sky, and as such, can be used as a way to distinguish them from reality or dreams, but it’s not always easy to see the sky. The first Seeing dream an Untamed Seer has (upon being made a Seer by the Gods and Goddesses and spirits) also usually warns the individual of a coming Turning—see ‘THE TURNING’.

    SEER – an individual who possesses extra ‘powers’. The Gods and Goddesses and spirits have the ability to make any Untamed person a Seer, and will pull their Seer into the Dream Land to give them warnings about future conversion attacks. If an Untamed Seer becomes converted (whether willingly, or forcefully), the Seer loses the ability to enter the Dream Land (as the Gods, Goddesses and spirits never invite an Enhanced Seer there, as they are on the enemy side). But an Enhanced Seer doesn’t lose their other powers. Other Seer powers include mind control, psychological torture and psychic abilities. These powers take a long time to master, and are used strongly by Enhanced Seers who are trying to convert Untamed Seers, as one of the reasons the Untamed still exist is because of their Seers being able to give them warnings about future conversion attacks.

    SEER PENDANT – The Dream Land is a dangerous place and an Untamed Seer can get lost there if he or she is not anchored to the real world by a special pendant. Usually made of crystal.

    SPIRIT RELEASING WORDS – These are the words said over a dead body to aid the spirit/soul’s journey to the New World. Often accompanied by specific gestures.

    SPIRITS – the entities that inhabit the world. They are usually considered as dangerous, or potentially dangerous, and should be avoided at all costs. However, they are usually all always on the Untamed side in the war, and therefore will aid Untamed Seers in battle if absolutely necessary. But they can’t be controlled by a Seer for a long time.

    THE TURNING – indicates a change in the season, and the time when the spirits are the most dangerous and active. During a Turning, the sky changes colour and dark holes appear, letting more spirits into the world. If any individual sees a spirit during the Turning, it is believed that he or she will die, as the spirits' powers are too strong during that period, and spirits don't like being seen on normal occasions. Turnings can occur at any time, and are not limited to a minimum number per year.

    UNTAMED (adjective) – the physical state of being Untamed: having normal eyes, and being able to think clearly.

    THE UNTAMED/THE UNTAMED ONES (noun) – the group of humans left in the world who do not rely on augmenters for their emotions. These people are the only people who are fully in control of their feelings, as they can feel negative emotions as well, but they are hunted down by the Enhanced Ones who want to convert them. The Enhanced see the Untamed as a threat as the negativity of the world still exists within them, and the Untamed kill as many Enhanced Ones as possible—though this can be difficult, depending on which augmenters the Enhanced Ones currently have in their systems. Due to the small number of Untamed humans left in the world, their lifestyle consists of being on the run, constantly looking out for Enhanced Ones, and raiding Enhanced towns and cities for food and supplies.

    UNTAMED SEER – a Seer who is on the side of the Untamed, and who receives visions through the Dream Land of upcoming conversion attacks, and other events that could threaten the existence of the Untamed.

    THE WAR OF HUMANITY – the on-going war between the Untamed and the Enhanced. If the Enhanced win, humanity will be destroyed, due to the replacement of genuine emotions with artificial ones, because the Enhanced Ones can choose what they want to feel at any given time.

    --

    There you have it--some of the 'unfamiliar' terms used in my novel, along with their definitions!

All that changes on the night of Preston's last performance when Paulo, a complete novice, takes the place of Preston's usual stage submissive. By day Paulo does odd jobs and sings in the Sister City Gay Men's Chorus. After that first night with Preston, however, he wants more. He wants everything.

    His Womanly Ways

    by K. Lynn


    Alex is a womanizer. He makes no excuses for it. Yes, he picks up women at the local bar, leaving them with just a memory of a good night and a good lay, but he hasn't had any complaints yet. That is, until he picks up the wrong woman. Not satisfied to be tossed aside as just another notch in Alex's bedpost, she curses him, wishing he “knew what it was like for a woman.” And he's about to find out what she means, embarking on a genderswap journey that he can't stop.


    Alex starts slowly gaining secondary female characteristics. Waking up with his cock gone, replaced by a vagina, was bad enough. Then it gets worse, as his body becomes more like a woman than the man he used to be. Alex tries to hide the changes he's going through, for fear that someone will discover his secret, but keeping this quite literally “under wraps” might be impossible before the curse runs its course.


    With the help of his female best friend, Eve, Alex tries to deal with who he is becoming. He feels like he's lost his identity, his mind not matching the body he now has. But Eve sticks by him, and they become closer as Alex's changes progress. What started out as friendship may become something more before Alex's journey is over. Perhaps this curse was actually a blessing in disguise.

    Coming Out Catholic

    by Alex Dunkin


    Like all good Catholic boys I care what Jesus thinks. Jesus -- both the man and the faith. Following him makes me happy. There’s just one issue… I think I’m gay. Well, it’s hard to be sure while going to an all-boys school. It could be a matter of simply liking what I know, and really, oh so very much liking what I see all day -- guys. Being gay and Catholic can’t possible work together. Can it?


    Coming Out Catholic follows a year in the life of a private Catholic school student as he comes to terms with his sexuality. Armed with sarcasm and his best friend Mark, he prepares to take on the school thug and the awkward social encounters plaguing his late teenage years.


    Confronting himself and his family are just the beginning of his trials. He finds he must find solace with his sexual desires without surrendering any of his faith. He loves both too much to deny either one, but when the time comes he will have to decide if he must turn away from one and prepare to succumb to a life of denial, or if, by some miracle, he can find acceptance for both within himself.

    The Bohemians

    by Sean Michael


    Topaz is a free-spirit, loving easily, though searching for his true soul-mate. As soon as he meets Quincy, he realizes this is the man who has been calling for him in his dreams and he offers his whole self, body, heart, mind and soul, without thought.


    Quincy gives away his heart too easily, and has been hurt in love more than once. Still, that doesn’t stop him from falling head over heels for Topaz when he first meets the man.


    It seems like a match made in heaven, but Topaz lives with two men who are his best friends, and also his lovers. Will Quincy ever be able to understand that Topaz has more than enough love in his heart for his best friends and his soul-mate, or will Topaz’s bohemian ways be too much for Quincy to understand?

    Friday at the 7-Eleven

    by J.T. Hall


    Brent’s a bully who picks on his workmate Alex. What Brent doesn’t realize, however, is that Alex wants him, but is too scared to ask. Meanwhile Brent’s convinced that all he needs is a firm hand to push him down and force him to be a good guy.


    Then he meets Craig, an muscled veteran working at the local 7-Eleven. Craig knows a switch when he sees it, and Brent’s got it written all over him. He needs a hard takedown and some training to harness that sadistic side. Craig decides that what might be best is for all three of them to get together. Only by embracing honesty and self-control can each of them find what they need.

Worried that Dominic will dump him if he finds out, Kevin struggles to keep his blackmail a secret. But Dominic has dark secrets of his own. He has a job he won't discuss that keeps him away from sunup to sunset and he makes secret nightly excursions after he thinks Kevin has fallen asleep. Can Kevin get away from his blackmailer? Will he find out what Dominic does all day and where he sneaks out to every night? And can their love survive when he finally uncovers the truth?

    Torquere's largest anthology to date features a total of 15 authors please to bring you 15 unique tales from when gods and goddesses ruled the world. This collection features both m/m and f/f content for your reading pleasure. Dare you enter this realm of Mythologically Torqued fantasy? Be on the lookout for Volume 2 summer 2015.


    Mythology, whether classic or modern, has always taken readers on a magical ride. Mythologically Torqued, Volume I, takes those tales from days of old, or more recent history, and places a unique spin on the beloved lore.

    The gods of Olympus make appearances, as do deities from Japanese, Norse, and other belief systems. With rampant sexual desires, these gods manage to slake their thirst for passions of the flesh in a rather untraditional manner…if the oral traditions passed down from generation-to-generation were at all accurate.


    These fifteen short stories are penned by both seasoned scribes and new authors; the anthology provides readers with the perfect opportunity to explore offerings from their favorite storytellers as well as find a new favorite or two. And, a unique perspective on the stories we enjoyed—or were forced down our throats at the hands of a sadistic English teacher or two—in our youth.


    Containing both M/M and F/F stories from authors Alisha Monroe, Alyx Shaw, Angelique Voisen, Carol Tierney, Delilah Storm, Eva Lefoy, Jacey Mills, L.J. Hamlin, Leah Ellwood, Logan Zachary, Max Wilde, Salome Wilde, Shiloh Saddler, T. Strange, and V.L. Locey, Mythologically Torqued Volume I is sure to have something for every penchant.


    Look for Mythologically Torqued Volume II coming August 2015.

    Cue the music! SONGBOOK collects, for the first time ever, all of the stories in the Paulo and Preston series!


    Preston is a lifestyle Dominant, recently retired from a career on stage at an exclusive BDSM club. When the series begins, he's single and looking forward to a quieter life. All that changes on the night of Preston's last performance when Paulo, a complete novice, takes the place of Preston's usual stage submissive. By day Paulo does odd jobs and sings in the Sister City Gay Men's Chorus. After that first night with Preston, however, he wants more. He wants everything. Can a newbie sub and a gracefully aging Dom learn to harmonize?

    Each story chronicles a new phase in Paulo and Preston's relationship and features song lyrics mangled in deliciously naughty ways by Paulo.

    Apologies for not replying to last Wednesday's comments at the time. I thought I'd be able to catch up Thursday night at the hotel with the free wi-fi. But I couldn't connect to it - the signal was too weak for my old laptop. It's taken me a couple of days to recover from the rushing around and feel like I could talk to people again. So sorry for the delay! All comments replied to now.

    I've been reading more mysteries recently. I have reading 'moods' and will over indulge in one genre until I get a fancy for something different. Has your recent reading had a theme? Or do you read across genres all the time?

Terry gives Gavin the key to his apartment so Gavin can sleep in, but Gavin isn’t sure he’s ready for that level of commitment. While he likes and trusts Terry—and loves the kinky sex they have together—Gavin has to decide which he can’t give up: Terry, or his freedom. Part one was originally published as Boots and Leather by Torquere Press.

    Bits of Magic

    by Angela Benedetti


    There's magic in the world, and its hiding in plain sight. Your friends, your neighbors, the guy who runs your favorite restaurant -- any of them could be more than they seem. A man trick-or-treating with his son finds the courage to go after what he wants when he confiscates and eats some unwrapped candy. A park ranger who's afraid of outing himself in public is reminded that his lover will -- and can -- protect him, no matter what. An apprentice mage learns that his master never forgets when he has a lesson to finish, and will always come for him when he gets himself lost in magic. And a boy from a mage-gifted family learns that life isn't over just because the gift has passed him by. Return to the world of Hidden Magic.

    Torquere's largest anthology to date features a total of 15 authors please to bring you 15 unique tales from when gods and goddesses ruled the world. This collection features both m/m and f/f content for your reading pleasure. Dare you enter this realm of Mythologically Torqued fantasy? Be on the lookout for Volume 2 summer 2015.


    Mythology, whether classic or modern, has always taken readers on a magical ride. Mythologically Torqued, Volume I, takes those tales from days of old, or more recent history, and places a unique spin on the beloved lore.


    The gods of Olympus make appearances, as do deities from Japanese, Norse, and other belief systems. With rampant sexual desires, these gods manage to slake their thirst for passions of the flesh in a rather untraditional manner…if the oral traditions passed down from generation-to-generation were at all accurate.


    These fifteen short stories are penned by both seasoned scribes and new authors; the anthology provides readers with the perfect opportunity to explore offerings from their favorite storytellers as well as find a new favorite or two. And, a unique perspective on the stories we enjoyed—or were forced down our throats at the hands of a sadistic English teacher or two—in our youth.


    Containing both M/M and F/F stories from authors Alisha Monroe, Alyx Shaw, Angelique Voisen, Carol Tierney, Delilah Storm, Eva Lefoy, Jacey Mills, L.J. Hamlin, Leah Ellwood, Logan Zachary, Max Wilde, Salome Wilde, Shiloh Saddler, T. Strange, and V.L. Locey, Mythologically Torqued Volume I is sure to have something for every penchant.


    Look for Mythologically Torqued Volume II coming August 2015.

Worried that Dominic will dump him if he finds out, Kevin struggles to keep his blackmail a secret. But Dominic has dark secrets of his own. He has a job he won't discuss that keeps him away from sunup to sunset and he makes secret nightly excursions after he thinks Kevin has fallen asleep. Can Kevin get away from his blackmailer? Will he find out what Dominic does all day and where he sneaks out to every night? And can their love survive when he finally uncovers the truth?

    A Journal of Two Writers - Windy City Edition!
    Rachel is here for a couple weeks to visit, vacation, edit, and remodel my kitchen.

    Yes, you read that right.  We're doing remodeling on our Spring Break.  :)

    Lessee, what's up in our neck of the woods:

    She got in REALLY early on Friday morning last week.  Her flight was delayed, but then she didn't get out of baggage claim for a while.  All of that would have been fine, except her phone decided to stay in "emergency only" mode when she landed, so it was an hour before I could reach her.  I hung out in the Cell Phone Lot, totally calm, while I waited.

    Of course not.  I hadn't had all my coffee yet.

    Anyway, I picked her up and we wandered around for a while.  We came back to the house, and we did a bunch of errands and stuff over the weekend.  I have serious anxiety around shopping, so I don't really remember where we went.  We did run up north to Ginger Blossom, a really awesome fair trade international store that carries furniture, textiles and clothing, and decorative items.  They didn't have any Tibetan Singing Bowls in stock, but I put my name down on the order list for when the container comes in from Tibet.

    You know, because they have shipping containers sent from various exotic locations.  Loff!

    We also have been making plans for remodeling the kitchen.  The workmen come next Tuesday and possibly Wednesday (depends on whether they can finish in one day or not) to redo the stack, or the vertical pipes that bring water to our kitchen.  Our water pressure is next to nothing right now, which makes the kitchen effectively useless.  While I'm pleased it's getting fixed, the cut-price workmen the landlord hired don't inspire me with faith.  To say I'm stressed about it would be, well, an understatement.

    However, the exciting part of this is that since they're ripping out my cabinets anyway, we're taking the opportunity to take the wallpaper down and we'll paint the walls once they're done working.  We settled on a dramatic color scheme:  the walls and ceiling will be white, except for a red focal wall that will be on the East wall of the kitchen.  We'll do the doors in white, since they open into the dining room, but it will tie it to the rest of the apartment's red trim and the living room's focal wall.  The ceiling in the kitchen will be white, whereas it's blue in the rest of the flat, but we did that to prevent the kitchen from looking too busy.

    Today we went downtown to meet with my counselor from the Illinois Small Business Development Center. SBDC is a nationwide program sponsored by the Small Business Association.  Those of you who are small business owners and entrepreneurs can utilize their services for free here in the States.  Even if you're not in the States, there's a wealth of information on business and entrepreneurship you can utlize as you develop your business. plan.

    Last, but not least, Emerald Keep is out in the wild!  I'm tickled pink.  It's the second novel in the Persis Chronicles, and can be read as a standalone.  What's exciting about this particular book, for me, is that we explored life in a Keep.  Keeps are basically schools for young men; students attend from age ten through at least age eighteen.  At that point, they can decide if they want to become Keepers, and then have two more years of schooling; if not, they graduate and either go on to a Guild or work in their field.

    One of the decisions I made early on with Persis is that if one is in debt for something like an education, one is not allowed to take on other legal contracts or debts until it's paid off.  For example, a student who is a new Keeper has graduated at age twenty to do work as a Keeper - run the household of their client, entertain, and do some kind of art.  Each Keep has their own specific art that they have elevated to master level, but all Keepers can do basic arts like cooking, sewing, basic medical care and massage, etc.

    So our fledgling Keeper takes a Contract with a customer (we decided to capitalize a lot more than in normal speech because I wanted to highlight the importance of the jobs and of the legal agreements).  They have typically ten years to pay off their Keep Pledge, or the price of their education.  What that means is that the families of students don't pay for the student's education, the student does.  A part of the money they earn on Contract belongs to the Keep until the Pledge is paid off.  Once that happens, then the Keeper can take on other legal contracts like, for example, marriage.

    It was fun coming up with answers to economic and legal questions like that.  What about you?  If you had to come up with a solution to peoples' debts (from mortgages and car loans to revolving credit card debt), how would you handle it?

    In 1981, at the height of the Cold War, a single nuclear warhead sent America's technological capability back to the 18th century. Four years later, the shattered country is still struggling to put itself back together. Infrastructure has crumbled, the government is gone, and convicted criminals are hunted for food.


    James lives in a small, Midwestern town. By day, he tends his family's farm, trading the food they grow for other supplies. By night, he dreams of being a musician. But with his world destroyed, music remains a frivolous dream.


    That is, until he meets Flame. Convicted of drug dealing, Flame has become a part of the bi-annual Shoot to Kill hunting season. He has a dark past and people want him dead. Yet he has a strong determination to live and shares James' musical dream. James and Flame join forces, traveling first to New York and then to London, in spite of the numerous obstacles in their path and the shadow of death hanging over them. Will they be strong enough to escape it and find their dreams together?

    Mythologically Torqued Anthology Volume 1

    edited by Deelylah Mullin with stories by Leigh Ellwood, L.J. Hamlin, Eva Lefoy, V.L. Locey, Jacey Mills, Alisha Monroe, Shiloh Saddler, Alyx Shaw, T. Strange, Delilah Storm, Carol Tierney, Angelique Voisen, Max Wilde, Salome Wilde, and Logan Zachary


    Eros finds his soul mate in the arms of a demigod friend in L.J. Hamlin’s In Love with Zeus’ Son. In Shiloh Sadler’s Clipped Wings, two men on a plantation find love under the most unusual circumstances in 1842 Missouri. V.L. Locey’s Back to the Garden, Pan hits up Woodstock with the sun god Apollo—sex, drugs, and rock and roll take on a whole new meaning. In Brísingamen, Carol Tierney offers us the story of a magical necklace, and the payment goddess Freyja delivered to four dwarven sisters for it’s creation. Delphinos, by T. Strange, is a modern-age retelling of Dionysus’ creation of dolphins. In Angelique Voison’s version of the Japanese Moon Princess myth, Reiko is tasked with bringing the Emperor’s future bride, the fabled Moon Princess to court, and complications arise when Reiko falls head over heels for Kaguya. Charged with ensuring Sisyphus fails, Hercules is conflicted by his feelings for the former ruler in Angelique Voison’s How Hercules Got His Bruise. In Leah Ellwood’s Styx and Stone, Ferrying souls across the Styx is a lonely business, but Charon doesn’t mind—newly arrived Stone is more than willing to keep him company. No one believes in the Greek gods anymore, and Apollo is in a rut, Ganymede—cupbearer to the gods— tries to get Apollo to see what’s in front of him in Jacey Mills’ Another Night at the End of the World. Salome Wilde's Eternal Grind offers a corporate take on Christian Hell, populated with horned and hoofed demons inspired by medieval monks' fertile imaginations, which follows a pair of lesbian demon baristas, determined to find their own happily-ever-after. In the distant past, Ero was the god of desire, but in present day, he looks for love with Psy—a peerlessly gorgeous mortal man—and needs to keep a secret, in Alisha Monroe’s The Myth of Ero and Psy. Bound by chains and defenseless, Thor is being held captive by Garrick, a young man also forced to service until demands are met in Logan Zachary’s Bound by Desire. Together, attraction ignites between Thor and Garrick—can love grow if it is bound by desire? In Delilah Storm’s The Golden Balls, true love’s kiss is powerful, and Jasper’s sexuality awakens—will Anur be able to keep Jasper in this sleepy little kingdom? A spurned lover, mythical horse, and a public official walk into a pub—murder, mayhem, and everlasting love result in Alyx Shaw’s The Kelpie.

    Blurb:


    Continuing from the first book in the series (Never Too Early: The Beginning), Chance and Tucker and Jake and Tor find themselves involved in a friendship that goes much deeper than any of them initially suspected.


    Jake has been released from the hospital following his fall from the roof, and Chance and Tucker agree to stay in Arkansas for several days to help Tor with Jake's care. Chance, however, spends much of his time trying to resist the growing attraction he has for Jake. The confusion between the love he has for Tucker and the new feelings for Jake play tricks with Chance's mind. Is any of this a good idea, or are all of them headed for disaster?


    For his part, Jake has to reconcile not only his growing feelings and physical attraction to Chance, but also the promises he and Tor made to each other. They rebuilt their own relationship in the wake of mistakes neither one of them wishes to repeat. How much communication and longing can one -- or two -- relationships take?

When he finds a very attractive corpse in a park and brings it home to reanimate, he accidentally creates a sassy, free-willed zombie who believes Edward is the one who murdered him.


    With no memory of his former life, Edward names the zombie Kit and tries to win his trust. Kit slowly adjusts to his new un-life with Edward’s help, though he’s still suspicious of Edward’s role in his death and is convinced that Edward is hiding his former identity. Edward is very attracted to Kit, but understands why Kit doesn’t trust him. As they become closer to one another, Kit turns to Edward for comfort and love. The fragile trust they’ve built together will be tested when Kit unexpectedly regains his memory and seeks revenge on his murderers.
