English professor Brian Daly is finally able to live openly with the love of his life, local weatherman Jay Tanner. Jay has ended his sham marriage and come out of the closet, and he and Brian now share a condo in the city.

But there’s trouble in paradise. Brian’s best friend Olivia can’t seem to get along with Jay. The two bicker whenever they’re together. In addition to trying to broker peace between his friends, Brian is busy fending off Sean, an infatuated student who wants Brian to be his first lover. When Brian spurns his advances, he threatens to accuse the professor of sexual harassment if the two don’t sleep together.

Just when things seem like they can’t get any worse, Brian discovers Jay has been cheating on him with a woman. And not just any woman -- Olivia, who is now pregnant with Jay’s child.

Brian’s world crumbles as his relationship with Jay falls apart and his friendship with Olivia is destroyed. While he works to try and put his life back together, Brian is relentlessly pursued by Sean. But this time Brian doesn’t turn him away, and the two begin a relationship that helps Brian get over some of the heartache he’s suffered.

After a while, Brian also reunites with Olivia, and becomes a kind of surrogate father to her newborn daughter. The baby helps him hold onto Jay in some small way. Even though he and Jay are no longer a couple, Brian still longs for his former partner.

But when Jay reappears in Brian’s life, Brian discovers he isn’t quite ready to forgive and forget. While he still loves Jay, will he ever be able to trust the man again?

Brothers of the Moon by Wayne Mansfield

Brothers of the Moon by Wayne Mansfield is now available in e-book format!

When night falls, darkness cloaks the land. It is a time of shadows and those creatures who move in shadow. What truly happens in the hours we spend sleeping blissfully unaware in our beds? Only the moon knows. And the Brothers of the Moon.

This collection contains thirteen tales of horror and fantasy, of passion and lust, from the realm of darkness. A demon on the beach demonstrates a degree of trickery that reinforces our fear. Spectres from beyond the grave return to help, console, and once again enjoy carnal pleasures long since left behind. The lonely Nullabor Plain plays host to extraterrestrial visitors. Ancient vampires bestow the Moonkiss on a troubled young man. Beings who have no name move unseen throughout the world, altering our lives in small but important ways. And all the while there is the call of the flesh -- the unceasing passion for closeness and gratification that binds human to supernatural.

Join the Brothers of the Moon. Let them lead you to places you can only imagine. Let them caress you. Let them kiss you. If you dare.

Winston St. Paul is a middle-aged professional photographer. When he was in his twenties, he started sleeping with the male models he shot in their underwear. While Winston has gotten older, the models certainly haven't. His friends used to be impressed and call him a stud, but now they think he's just sad and desperate, and Winston is starting to agree with them.

After his latest model boyfriend left him for a younger man, Winston did nothing but mope in his apartment and stare at photos of past failed relationships. Winston planned on skipping a friend's wedding in New England until he was guilt-tripped into it, but a torrential storm grounded his plane. Stranded in the south, Winston is forced to rent a car to make it to the wedding on time.

When Winston stops for gas, he meets Erik, a hitchhiker who is exactly the type of guy he knows he shouldn't chase after. A good-looking young man without any responsibilities in need of help, Erik Winston is hoping for a ride, and is surprised to find they have the same destination.

But as these two strangers leave together, they are completely unaware of the dangerous chain reaction they have set off.

The Weeping Willow by Hayden Thorne

The Weeping Willow by Hayden Thorne is now available in e-book format!

A woodland shadow and a mortal fall in love, and a tragic cycle begins, haunting the steps of their daughter, Aeldra. At a young age, Aeldra finds herself pregnant, abandoned, and standing at a precipice, her child’s future hanging on a balance. Already physically weakened for having shadow and mortal blood in her veins, she remains defiant when her shadow kin demand her child’s life. She presses her faithful servant, Halfrith, to stand by the boy and make sure he remains unnamed, as it’s through his name that the shadow world will find the means by which they can claim him.

Hope comes in the shape of Helena Butcher, a seventeen-year-old seamstress who brings shame to her family by getting pregnant out of wedlock. From beyond the grave, Aeldra looks to Helena and her unborn child to save her own son, who’s now cursed to remain caught between two worlds after a woodland shadow’s attempt at taking the boy away is thwarted by Halfrith.

Though tragedy marks the births of Crispian Butcher and Aeldra’s son, who’s been turned into a weeping willow by the woodland shadows, something much deeper and more enduring will shape the curious friendship between a ragged boy and a mournful tree. And something stronger and more resistant to hate and prejudice will ultimately break a curse, end a dark cycle, and bring two lonely boys together.

Head in the Cloud by J.M. Snyder

Head in the Cloud by J.M. Snyder is now available in e-book format!

College senior Jake Mallory cares more about his reputation as a former high school jock turned party animal than his grade point average. His time in class is spent counting down to the weekend, when he'll hit the gay club scene with his roommate Holly, who doubles as his designated driver. To celebrate being back at school after summer break, Jake parties so hard, he wakes up Sunday morning with blurred memories of the past two days. Worse than his hangover, though, is the fact that he can’t find his iPhone.

Holly's best friend Evan Williams is a grade A nerd, complete with slicked-back hair and thick, dorky glasses. Jake can't stand Evan on principle, though it's obvious to anyone with half a brain that Evan has a major crush on Jake. No matter how mean Jake is to him, Evan just won't take a hint. He might even know something about the missing phone, but Jake won't give him the time of day to hear what he has to say.

When Jake logs into the cloud online to access his homework, he finds photos uploaded from his phone that he doesn’t remember taking over the weekend. In them is a hot, sexy guy he hooked up with in the back seat of Holly’s car. Soon he realizes the guy must have his phone, and has begun taking explicit photos with it as if to tease Jake.

Holly knows who the guy is but she isn't telling, so Jake begs her to arrange a meeting. He wants his phone back, but more than that, he wants a chance to take things further with the hot stranger. She agrees to throw a house party and invite the guy over. At first, Jake is pissed when he doesn’t show up. Jake doesn't even know who he is.

Paul Alan Fahey on A Manx Tale

Paul Alan Fahey on A Manx Tale

Several years ago I had the opportunity of taking a workshop from the New York Times best-selling romance author, Lori Wilde. The topic was scene layering. Not only was the workshop worth the small fee I paid, but I also learned the importance of defining the novel's theme BEFORE I began writing the first chapter. Why is this important? Well, knowing the theme beforehand emotionally deepens each scene for the reader, especially if it's built into the story's setting, dialogue, narrative, and other aspects of the book. Specific motifs and symbols, related to theme, can also enrich the work. After taking the course, I added a new element to my revision checklist: Does each scene, or chapter, speak to the book's theme in a subtle way?

The third and newest installment in my Lovers & Liars Wartime Series, A Manx Tale, uses theme in a very specific way. The story takes place in the late summer of 1941 on the Isle of Man. The characters, Caroline, Cyril, Leslie and Edward, are back in spy mode in a place steeped in a mix of history, mythology and whimsy. Think Ireland and Leprechauns and you've got the idea.

"When logic fails, a bit of whimsy saves the day" is the overarching theme of A Manx Tale. Along with using this theme as a guidepost, I also employed a motif of doubles to represent the opposing forces that swirled about the characters and often described their fluctuating states of mind. The duality of rational thought vs. magical thinking is one example of this motif. For setting, I made use of the island's WWII internment camps to emphasize the contrasting states of imprisonment vs. freedom, and for character traits, I focused on loyal vs. disloyal, moral vs. immoral and the list went on.

Even the two main couples, one gay and one straight, added an interesting element to A Manx Tale. Two new characters appear in this story. You'll spot them right away. I hope they'll steal your heart as they did mine. Literally, they wouldn't rest until I put them in the book. Happy Reading!
