Welcome

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.

New titles

We are very excited by our three offerings for your spring / autumn reading pleasure! These can all be pre-ordered now, and will be available on 1 May.

We weren’t alone in wanting to know more about the fascinating characters and setting of Barry Brennessel’s short story in our Great War anthology A PRIDE OF POPPIES, so we know we won’t be the only ones thrilled to read his ANH SANG novella. This expands and significantly develops the original story, in surprising and intriguing ways.

Barry has also adapted the story into a screenplay, which has won recognition in prestigious screenwriting contests. We’re proud as punch to be playing a small role in bringing you this tale

From Jay Lewis Taylor we have the story WHERE ANGELS FEAR, in which Richard, invalided home from the Navy, meets Les, a Lancaster bomber pilot still serving with the RAF. This story ranges from the intimately personal to the internationally significant, in carefully considering how war affects those most closely involved.

This volume also contains another story, THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER.

Following up on the success of our Austen-inspired anthology, we’re delighted to bring you NO HOLDS BARD, which takes its inspiration from Shakespeare and his works – and then runs off in several directions at once.

Editor Fiona Pickles is thrilled by the variety brought to you by the ten authors, some already familiar to the Press and others new to us: Julie BozzaSiobhan DunlopAdam FitzroyBryn HammondErin HorakovaMolly KatzVanessa MulberryEleanor MusgroveMichelle Peart; and Jay Lewis Taylor.

We are absolutely sure you’ll find plenty here for your reading pleasure!
