We publish LGBTQIA fiction and 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.
We have two new titles available as of 1 August, both from authors who are new to Manifold Press.
UNDER LEADEN SKIES by Sandra Lindsey begins in the early days of the second world war. ‘Teddy’ Garston is finally prompted to confess his love for his friend Huw Roberts, and they spend a few hours together before Teddy must travel north to Shetland to take up his duties piloting Sunderland flying boats. The story follows Teddy throughout the war, while all the old certainties seem lost in the turbulence of change and loss – until at last he can head home again, and try to find a way of building a new life with those he loves.
In ELEVENTH HOUR, Elin Gregory lovingly evokes old adventures of espionage and derring-do. The tale is set in 1920s London, between the wars. If you are nostalgic for ‘couples only’ boarding houses and nosy landladies, bath houses and suave gents spying for foreign powers, not to mention the necessity of tea and a good overarm bowling action, then this is the yarn for you!
We’re continually striving to bring you a wide range of high-quality fiction and romance – and that’s why we’re always willing to consider new projects from new and established authors. If you have a novel or a set of short stories you’d like us to take a look at, please see our Submissions page for details.
