IN THE PRIVACY OF THEIR HOME

200 privacyby R.A. Padmos

Dylan’s life is regulated and precise, and as a gay man in the England of the 1960s it’s also necessarily secretive; the law regarding homosexuality may have changed, but unfortunately society’s attitudes are slow to catch up. Meeting Max – younger and less inhibited – is a shock to Dylan’s system; suddenly his world, which has been black and white, explodes into vivid colour. But loving Max is not without difficulty; Max is an artist, talented and ambitious, and there’s no way someone as ordinary as Dylan can hold on to him for long … or is there?

Photo taken by Himself (my boyfriend).

Liam Livings lives where east London ends and becomes Essex. He shares his house with his boyfriend and cat. He enjoys baking, cooking, classic cars and socialising with friends. He escapes from real life with a guilty pleasure book, cries at a sad, funny and camp film – and he’s been known to watch an awful lot of Gilmore Girls in the name of writing ‘research’.

He has written since he was a teenager, and started writing with the hope of publication in 2011. His writing focuses on friendships, British humour, and romance with plenty of sparkle.

Reviews

It was an entertaining story, full of drag shows, a whole new “family” for Ford, a new job…doing what he always wanted to do, and even a couple guys vying for his love interest. ESCAPING FROM HIM reviewed by Love Bytes

I’m happy to report this is an enjoyable read. Lightly fluffy and will leave you smiling. ESCAPING FROM HIM reviewed by Gay Guy Reading

Darren’s character was unique and I enjoyed learning more about him … I enjoyed the secondary characters … Simon’s friend Lucy seemed to be quite the go get ’em kind of woman and even the stuffy headmaster at the school seemed like a decent guy after you got to know him. WRONG ROOM, RIGHT GUY reviewed by Nautical Star Books

WRONG ROOM, RIGHT GUY

wrong room 200by Liam Livings

Simon’s the wrong man in the wrong place; trying to teach English to kids who couldn’t care less, he’d really rather be a writer – but it’s only when his best friend bullies him into it that he takes the plunge and joins his local creative writing group. Even then things don’t quite work out the way he planned; blundering into the wrong room at the Village Hall he encounters a group of recovering cocaine addicts and he wants to know more … which is the start, for Simon, of a double life and a whole new secret identity, not to mention an intriguing relationship …

Liz PowellBorn and brought up in Kent, I have a masters degree in Geophysics and a near obsession with writing, which at least gives me something to talk about in job interviews! I’ve written stories ever since I can remember, from scribbling in spare accounting books as a child to staying up until the early hours writing to the glow of a laptop screen as a student. I’m fascinated by claustrophobic, character-driven stories of flawed individuals – though of course it’s a must that love conquers (almost) all in the end.

I was completely consumed by this story for its entire 366 pages. I. Could. Not. Put. It. Down.  And I’m still thinking about it days later. HUNTED reviewed by Boys in Our Books
