Exciting News

I just received an email from Mel Keegan, esteemed author of 25 novels featuring pivotal gay characters and themes in a variety of genres. Before I get to his all-important message, I must tout the man’s talent. Currently reading his science fiction "Narc" series, I can't get enough of the iconic characters, Jarrat and Stone. The guys' romance really enhances their hair-raising battles with futuristic drug syndicates. Mel Keegan has written everything from fantasy to historical and even a wonderfully funny comedy piece. And that's not all, as he's doing great things to support other authors of gay and lesbian titles.

The man has a wonderful project in the gay and lesbian author site, The GLBT Bookshelf, which I've mentioned before. He took my humble erotica novelette, "Miya", and turned it into an e-book for a Bookshelf advertising fundraiser in March. I currently own the rights to “Miya” with its lovely cover created by the talented Jade.

Now for today’s exciting news, Mr. Keegan is going to publish another of my stories as an e-book! This piece was formerly available for free reads elsewhere without a fancy cover, so I'm excited by this prospect and proud to help promote The Bookshelf! Jade again offered her talent to the project , too, an added bonus. Once the free downloads are available from my meager catalog and others such as Mel, himself, I'll put up a link for you.

When that time comes, I hope folks will come enjoy free reads and spread the word about The GLBT Bookshelf. As for me, I'm going to go squeal like a little kid and then get back to work polishing my sci-fi slanted, gay erotica titled “Memoirs of a Corporate Stress Reliever”.

Happy reading!

  5. Ah, music to my eyes, Lucius Antony. You're such an inspiration toward my Japanese studies. I recently learned strong, exercise, monkey, whale, insect, flight - my brain boileth over. At some point a live course with interesting flesh-and-blood people such as yourself will be in order if I work up the courage. Thank you for the beautiful comment!

  7. Tatiana and Rebecca, your kind words are greatly appreciated. Thank you! I think I've even envisioned a sexy book cover for the talented artist Jade to create. I'm excited.
