Welcome

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.

You’ll notice that our dear old online shop has ceased to exist and is, in fact, an ex-module! All orders should now be placed through one or other of our distribution partners who are, at present and in strictly alphabetical order, AllRomance, Amazon and Smashwords, with some titles also being available in paperback via CreateSpace.

We must admit, though, that we’ll be sorry to lose direct contact with our readers. It’s been absolutely the best aspect of the online shop, and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed meeting you all and chatting in e-mail. Our days will be considerably less interesting in future, without that!

New titles

Our two most recent books were published on 1 August.

We’re delighted to welcome back Jane Elliot, one of our most stalwart authors, who in an exciting departure for Manifold Press brings us what we hope will be the first book in a new line of female-female adventures.  In SMOOTHIE we meet Heather, not the sort of girl you’d really look at twice, who reveals some unexpected qualities when she’s kidnapped and bundled into a series of high-octane adventures in the Florida Keys at the side of the mysterious and devastatingly attractive Natalie …

And over in Liam Livings‘ new title WRONG ROOM, RIGHT GUY we’re introduced to Simon, who’s struggling to be something he isn’t – conventional, boring, and an English teacher – when inside he knows he’s really a writer.  Blundering into the wrong room at his local Village Hall, he ends up with a group of recovering cocaine addicts rather than the creative writing group he was looking for – and that leads on to a whole series of misunderstandings which threaten to undermine the start of what could be a very promising new relationship …

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.

Suppliers

We are happy to be in partnership with AllRomance eBooks, the Smashwords Premium Catalog, and of course our titles are also available for Kindle; there are buy links for these throughout the site. Please note that the Amazon links go to Amazon.co.uk; we’re sure those of you elsewhere in the world can figure it out!

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.

Where to find us

If you’d like to meet up in person, various members of the Manifold Press family can be found attending Euro Pride Con, Queer Company and UK Meet – and in particular:
