London Steam by Lynn Townsend

London Steam by Lynn Townsend is now available in e-book format!

In a reimagined 1890's London, where steam-driven airships rule the skies and monsters roam the streets, the Galileo Observatory's Club for Gentlemen welcomes all -- gwr, shape-changers, vampires, and lords. A high-stakes game leads more than a few men astray.

Poindexter Fitzhughes, renowned hero and scientist, learns just how much trouble a full-blooded gwr can be when he attempts to cure his lover, Lord Seth Maitland, of the disease. But when their backs are against the wall, the two must learn to trust in each other, and more importantly, in their true natures, to prevail.

Meanwhile, Duncan Farnsworth discovers being a vampire has not improved his social life, his chances of finding love, continuing the family line, or getting a bite to eat. Maneuvering his way around a sarcastic butler, his spinster sister, a run-in with an amorous werewolf, and a confrontation with a dead soldier and a French airship captain, Duncan finally finds exactly what he is thirsting for.

As a Christmas gift to himself, interior designer Nick Dailey decides to fly to Southern Florida to watch his local NFL team play an away game. However, his last minute plans meant there was no room at any of the inns, forcing him to rent a room in a seedy motel.

Nick’s employee and best gal pal, Penny, had promised him a surprise gift. He’s amazed when he discovers this is none other than a meeting with “Big Bad Brad” Williams, star defensive lineman for the Outlaws. Nick can’t believe it when Brad asks if he can kiss Nick. Naturally Nick agrees. Pushing his luck, Nick asks to explore the big man’s chocolate-colored skin, bulging muscles, and heavy tattoos.

But when the encounter is over, unexpected and uncomfortable truths are revealed. How will Brad and Nick each handle their surprise gifts?

And Good Will to All by J.D. Walker

And Good Will to All by J.D. Walker is now available in e-book format!

It's the middle of a very cold December, and Charlie Mayburn is in desperate need of a seasonal night manager at his self-storage facility. When he comes across a résumé from his childhood sweetheart, Lonnie "Mack" McDaniel, he’s beyond surprised. Mack left right after high school, determined to see the world and abandoning both Charlie and their small town for greener pastures. So what’s he doing back twenty years later?

As he's desperate and Mack is the most qualified applicant, Charlie hires him on the spot, along with leasing him a ten-by-ten unit. Mack does good work, but something’s off about him. He's very secretive, often bedraggled, and has holes in his well-worn shoes. Definitely not the clean-cut Mack Charlie grew up with.

When Charlie discovers, quite by accident, that Mack has been living in the storage unit he rented -- in the middle of winter -- he takes matters in hand. He offers Mack a place to stay, no strings attached. It takes some doing, but Charlie finally gets Mack to tell him how he ended up homeless. The tale almost breaks his heart, but Charlie is determined to take care of his long lost friend, no matter what.
Perhaps this Christmas, both men can find their way through old hurts and forge a new beginning, with good will for all.

Hawaiian Wedding by J.M. Snyder

Hawaiian Wedding by J.M. Snyder is now available in e-book format!

City planner Remy McIntosh and architect Lane Anders are back from the best-selling novel, Just the Three of Us, to plan their Christmas wedding! When Remy married Kate, he’d only done so because it was the right thing to do, as she was pregnant with Braden. This time around, he’s marrying for love, and he wants everything to be just right.

At the time of their engagement, Virginia didn’t allow same-sex couples to marry, so Lane suggests they splurge and plan the perfect wedding in Hawaii. Because the island is so far away, Remy hires someone local to plan everything for them. He hates giving up so much control, but the wedding planner is someone Lane knew in high school, so she can’t be all bad, can she?

Unfortunately, things go wrong right from the start. Remy hopes to spend a week alone at Christmas with his lover in Hawaii before their families arrive for the wedding. But his son is erroneously booked on the same flight as Remy and Lane, and they have to spend their romantic tropical holiday entertaining a nine year old boy. Then the wedding planner disappears for the weekend to participate in a surfing competition.

When Remy decides to obtain a marriage license on his own, he discovers he needs proof of his divorce, which he doesn’t have with him, and Kate’s stuck in Virginia in a freak snowstorm that may ground her plane until after the wedding is scheduled to take place.

As things continue to spiral out of his control, Remy doesn’t know whether to laugh at his troubles or cry with frustration. Will he and Lane get to say “I do” on an Hawaiian island beach? Or should they just throw in the towel and elope back in the courthouse in Virginia?

With no job and no boyfriend, Justin sees no reason to make a big deal out of Christmas this year, so he plunks down his severance pay on a cottage in the Caribbean and jets away for some Me Time. Not that he'd mind a little Us Time, you understand, but the handsome young islanders of his acquaintance are all friendly, fun, and straight as they come. He sure didn't leave San Diego looking for any middle-aged American gym jock, but when one washes up at his favorite local watering hole, Justin discovers there are worse ways to dance the night away. Too bad the sexy stranger is on a cruise and the next port is calling.

When he spies the ship still in port while he tends to his Christmas Eve hangover, Justin knows he must manage his expectations. Just because the ship's still here doesn't mean the guy will come ashore, and so what if they do cross paths again? Did they really connect as Justin thinks he remembers, or is that just the beer filling in the blanks? He invents an errand, throws on some clothes, and heads for the dock, figuring there's one way to find out.

Kiersten has always been a fan of personal massagers, and her favorite is the PleasureWand 3000, a powerful vibe that plugs in the wall and brings instant release. Kiersten thinks she loves her wand more than she loves sex, and she can’t imagine why she’d need a real girlfriend with the buzzing beast in her bed.

But when her PleasureWand’s cord frays over time, almost blowing a fuse and threatening to electrocute her in the process, Kiersten finds herself in the market for a new toy. The wand isn’t cheap, and the website she buys it from takes her money and runs, leaving her out of cash and out of luck.

But a local sex toy shop called Amaryllis has the PleasureWand in stock, so Kiersten decides to swing by on her lunch break. She’s a little embarrassed to be seen in such a place, to be honest, but sexy owner Amy soon puts her at ease. She introduces Kiersten to her favorite vibe, a lightweight, waterproof, cordless wonder called the Genie 500, and she’s more than ready to give Kiersten a demo to prove her point.

Can Amy’s sales pitch change Kiersten’s mind? Will the Genie really make all her dreams come true?

Growing up, Joey has no gay role models. In the dim light of the early 1960s, Joey only knew what he picked up on the streets, at magazine stands, and in public restrooms.

Ike, a flamboyant college freshman, turns Joey on to gay sex and the newly formed gay lib movement. But things don’t go well for Joey, and he fumbles through a few one-night stands and semi-relationships. After nearly losing Ike to a gay bashing, Joey gives up on love and turns his motorcycle toward New Orleans and the French Quarter, where he moves in with his bohemian cousin, Judy.

Joey likes the gay scene in the Quarter but he is lonely, missing intimacy, and flails through life. The sexual nights in the French Quarter aren’t enough to satisfy his real needs -- but his resourceful cousin magically opens the door for him to have the best of both worlds.

After Marshall gets a medical residency across the state and hours away from his boyfriend Jack, the two decide on a long-distance relationship. This arrangement works, more or less. Marshall isn’t the best with texting and his time is often scattered, but so is Jack’s when he’s working double-shifts at Target. When they connect over Skype and text messages, it’s good. And when they don’t, Jack finds other ways to keep their relationship interesting and the excitement present. But when Black Friday forces both to work hectic schedules and deal with impatient crowds, Jack wonders if spending Thanksgiving apart was really a good idea.

During Black Friday, Jack's coworkers amuse him with customer service horror stories, take selfies, and rewrite traditional holiday songs. As Marshall's text messages become less and less frequent, Jack wonders if the two of them will be able to wait out the three weeks and six days until they can see one another over Christmas break.

When everyone tells Jack “patience is a virtue,” he starts to see the faulty argument at its core. Being quiet has never gotten him anything in his life. Can he learn from these bossy customers how to voice his own desires and have Marshall home all to himself?

Paul Alan Fahey on Getting Gertie Out

Q: Are we willing to go back into the closet as we age?

This is a question that I have to admit never entered my mind, at least not until recently. We’d come so far in terms of equality issues -- especially in these recent decades -- I couldn’t imagine even having to consider it.

About three months ago, I read a beautiful, heartfelt article by Marie Cartier about her ageing lesbian friend, Rae. The story truly opened my eyes about LGBT eldercare. And after more research, I knew I had to write Getting Gertie Out.

Gertie’s story, though fictional, isn’t so different from the personal stories I read online. Accounts by lesbians, gays, and transgender individuals, who after losing life partners, husbands or wives, often found themselves ill, alone, and at the mercy of an insensitive healthcare system, not to mention the wrath of other elderly residents.

What accounts for all this abuse, insensitivity, and lack of compassion?

  • Facility staff untrained in LGBT issues
  • Elderly residents still living in the twentieth century, a time when psychiatrists defined homosexuality as a mental illness; religious leaders condemned same sex attraction as against God’s laws and commandments; and law enforcement that made it a criminal offense to engage in homosexual acts
Getting Gertie Out is not a downer of a read. Far from it. It is one of hope and salvation.

As a married senior gay man, my purpose in writing Gertie’s story was twofold: I wanted to shed light on a subject one might not be aware of -- as I was in the beginning -- and to offer support to those LGBT communities working toward the goal of providing safe havens for their elderly seniors.

When writing a fictional story about an important subject, there’s a common fear that, unknowingly, the writer will trivialize the issues. Hopefully I haven’t.

I set out to create strong characters in Lanta, Bernadette, and Gertie -- folks I think you’ll identify with and root for. Please visit me at and let me know if I’ve succeeded. I love hearing from my readers.

Now back to my original question.

Q: Are we willing to go back into the closet as we age?

A: Hell, no!

Getting Gertie Out by Paul Alan Fahey

Getting Gertie Out by Paul Alan Fahey is now available in e-book format!

It’s summer vacation. Lanta Cross is sixteen and at odds with Bernadette, her adoptive mother. She’ll do anything to get away from home and out from under Bernadette’s considerable thumb.

Already working one part-time job at a local café, Lanta takes another at Saint Catherine’s Elder Care Facility. At first it appears her duties are something she can do blindfolded -- wheeling residents to and from activities, cleaning up their messes, and mainly staying out of the way of the LVNs and the administrator, Ms. Andrews. During her first week at the home, Lanta meets and befriends an elderly lesbian resident, Gertrude Weiss. They bond quickly.

Yet not everything is what it seems at St. Catherine’s.

When Gertrude’s journal full of her thoughts about her late partner goes missing, the abuse begins. Gertrude’s meals are late and cold. Her seemingly friendly roommate asks for a transfer to another room. As the harassment escalates, Gertrude’s physical and emotional health deteriorates.

Lanta and her mother must pool their resources and work as a team to save Gertrude’s life before it’s too late. Will they be in time?
