Expect to be bombarded



I believe in the work that the GLBT Bookshelf is doing. Given the chance, this can become the hub for anyone on the web looking for a comprehensive list of authors, publishers, and more.

So with that in mind I'm sending out my first plug for the Rummage Sale being offered...but it won't be the last so brace up.

March 2010 Fundraiser

Mel Keegan invited seven bookshelf members to participate offering a range of things from new stories to discounted novels to artwork. Proceeds from all sales go to raise much needed funds for the bookshelf itself.

This is my contribution, a 6,000 word short story that is only available at the bookshelf.



Sam O'Brien and Mason Jackson are long time friends and roommates with benefits. Passionate martial artists they earn a living criss crossing the country putting on exhibitions with an elite team from their dojo. One snowy night in Atlanta Mason makes a startling revelation about his habits when he and Sam are parted, and a bitter argument ensues. Sam leaves Mason reeling in a drunken stupor and finds solace with the rest of the dojo at a party. Although Sam is morose about the argument he strikes up a conversation with Shan, another martial artist. Although the encounter is one-sided on Shan's part, when Sam returns home later Mason accuses him of the worst and kicks Sam out of their shared apartment.

Uncertainty lingers, and even though Sam feels betrayed he can't get Mason out of his head. Sam stays late in the dojo craving the solitude it provides, and the release from worry that working out brings. After weeks of separation Mason finds him there one night and promises things will change. Admissions are made on both sides, and the lovers turn a corner and agree to give things another chance.


Stop by and take a look at all the goodies that are offered.


While you're looking at new fiction, check out Total E-Bounds new anthology Stealing My Heart. Proceeds go to fighting eBook piracy.
