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.
Our two new titles this time accurately portray the broad scope of our output! Once again we are fortunate to have a book by Chris Quinton which was recently relinquished by another publisher: CARAVAGGIO’S ANGEL, now amended and extensively re-edited, is the story of Paul; arriving in Malta to deal with the estate of his great-uncle, he finds himself drawn to the enigmatically beautiful Angelo – who, intriguingly, seems to have been both model and inspiration for more than one of the island’s successful artists.
In a very different vein, Jay Lewis Taylor’s new book ACROSS YOUR DREAMS deals with a web of relationships among a group of young gay men who meet, love briefly and then part again – for varying lengths of time – during, and in the immediate aftermath of, the Great War. It’s a tale of love and loss, of beginning again, and of finding something worthwhile to cling to in the rubble of a world destroyed. Readers who liked Jay’s two short stories in our anthology A PRIDE OF POPPIES will also enjoy this much more detailed portrait of some of the same characters.
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.
Our anthology A CERTAIN PERSUASION is also open for submissions, with a deadline of 1 May 2016.
