• Thomas Elkin 1 – Elements of Retrofit Excerpt

      EXCERPT CHAPTER ONE: Looking out of my office window over the darkening New York City skyline, I could see my reflection in the wall of glass before me. Beyond the expensive suit and shoes, there was grey hair at my temples, my once-black hair was now salt and pepper, and there were creases at the corners of my eyes. Forty-four years old. Forty-four. How did that happen? It seemed like I’d missed half of my life. In many ways I had. The light on the intercom flashed. “Mr Elkin?” My receptionist was fifteen years older than me and had been my receptionist for ten years, since the day I’d…

  • LJ Harris is a guest author!

    I’ve known the lovely LJ Harris for a few years, and if memory serves correctly, it was her that urged me to join facebook back in my fanfic writing days.  So it’s an absolute pleasure to have her on my blog today!  Questions: Welcome! Another (awesome) Aussie in our midst! Tell us about you! Well I’m a mother and wife. I live and work in Canberra, and enjoy going to the movies and more than anything sitting down to a good book. When did you start writing? I’ve been writing seriously for the past 4 years now. Up until then I only wrote a little poetry once in a while.…

  • Lily G. Blunt guest post!

    Five minutes with Lily G Blunt Tell us about you. I live in sunny Northamptonshire in the UK with hubs and my two twenty-something “children”.  I taught in primary schools for over twenty-five years before discovering the wonderful world of m/m fiction. When did you start writing? Surprisingly, I discovered m/m novels through Twilight about four years ago. As a teacher, I never set out to become an author. Although I often had story ideas whirling around my head, I never wrote them down. But after reading slash Twilight fanfiction for a few months, I suddenly had an idea in the middle of the night, and wrote my first two…

  • Nagron + obsession = fanfic

    Yep, I wrote a fanfic. Given my obsession with Spartacus and Nagron, it was only ever a matter of time, really.  I thought I’d left the wonderful realms of fanfic, but apparently not.  During my I-think-I-broke-my-brain lapse – and my inability to focus on any of my WIP’s – I wrote a little story in the Spartacus world of Agron and Nasir. It was stress-free writing, but still allowing words to flow and for me to flex some muscles I’d thought long forgotten.  I think I could be ready to start on my other stories again… fingers crossed, anyway. The link to the story is  Remaining Days Blurb: At the…

  • Pitch by Will Parkinson

    I’d really love to welcome Will to my blog.  Will Parkinson is the real life man I named Blindside’s Will Parkinson after (he pestered me to write it until I gave in 😉 )  And he is very excited about his latest release, Pitch, and I’m honoured to have him here.  He’s here to tell you all about Pitch.  About Will… WILL PARKINSON believes that no matter what obstacles are thrown in the path of young love, it will always find a way to win in the end. He wants his characters to have their happily ever after, but that doesn’t mean that it’s going to come easily. None of…
