Our primary output is male-male romance with plot – mystery, adventure etc. – set either in the present or the historical past or in alternate versions of them, sometimes with a supernatural twist. If you like your e-books the way you like your coffee – whether short and dark, hot and steamy, or rich and indulgent – you’ll find something to suit your taste here.
Come on in, relax and enjoy our wide variety of same-sex fiction, guaranteed to spice up your day – and all for the price of a couple of cups of designer coffee. It’s not only better for your health, it’s good for the environment too.
We’re delighted to announce two intriguing new titles, to be published on 1 November 2015, and to welcome back two stalwart authors who have been missing from our list for far too long:
R.A. Padmos returns with a new tale about life in Kinbridge – the setting for her highly successful novel RAVAGES. This time she delves into the city’s past – and into a society only just beginning to tolerate homosexual relationships between consenting couples in private – with the tale of Dylan and Max who, meeting by chance, must make adjustments before they can contemplate a life together; IN THE PRIVACY OF THEIR HOME is a fascinating study of a world which has long since – thank goodness! – ceased to be.
Another long-time absentee is Adam Fitzroy, returning with the tale of retired police officer Ted – determined to clear up the mystery surrounding an unexpected death on an isolated Scottish island – who meets and becomes attracted to the enigmatic Athol, thought by some to have guilty knowledge of the tragedy. Disentangling fact from rumour brings them closer together, and they find themselves sharing both perils and pleasures as the mystery unravels in IN DEEP.
As regular readers will know, we’re continually striving to bring you a wide range of new, high-quality same-sex fiction – and that’s why we’re always willing to consider new projects from new authors; if you have a novel or a set of short stories you’d like us to take a look at, please see our Prospectus for details of how to submit your work.
New anthology in the works
We’re delighted to announce our new anthology A CERTAIN PERSUASION is open for submissions!
This time we are visiting the Austenverse. We are seeking stories set in and around Jane Austen’s novels and other writings, featuring GLBTQIA people as the main characters. Think Death at Pemberley only more fabulous, or Lost in Austen only queerer.
Follow the link if you want to know more!
In addition, there are Print on Demand versions of some of our titles appearing on an irregular basis, and buy links for these will be found on the relevant pages. These are made available at the discretion of the individual authors, however, and it is probable that only a proportion of our titles will be published in this way.
