Lost and Found by Feral Sephrian

Lost and Found by Feral Sephrian is now available in e-book format!

Joshy grew up watching his Bible-thumping dad and his ballet-loving brother Leon argue and shout at each other for years, but never really knew why. When new neighbors move in down the street, suddenly Leon spends time with their son, Kalil. Once again, Joshy is completely in the dark about his brother’s actions and is taken by surprise when both Leon and Kalil run away together. The rest of his childhood and adolescence are spent wondering what became of the pair, until one day ...

Leon was different from day one, and even though it caused friction with his dad’s narrow-minded views, he never gave up on what he truly was. Exploring his sexuality generates little more than confusion and frustration, until he meets Kalil. They find out they have more in common than people expect, and Leon helps Kalil come to terms with that. Both yearning for freedom from the oppression of their parents, they hatch a plan to escape to New York, where a new life and new opportunities await.

Santa Fe attorney Danny Hanrahan loves life in his adopted hometown. He’s got good friends, a great job, and a gorgeous home. The only thing he’s missing is someone with whom to share it all, but when his trusty assistant Monica sets him up with her sexy son Ashok, Danny quickly considers the “boyfriend” box checked, too.

Ashok is fit, charming, and dynamite in the sack; falling in love with him is a piece of cake. Embracing Ashok’s alter ego, celebrated drag diva Raima Reason, proves to be more of a challenge. Danny divorced his wife for a reason, and it wasn't so he could go out and find someone who takes even longer than she did to put on makeup. When Raima's career looks set to take off, Danny has to decide if he's along for the ride, or if a boyfriend who's sometimes a girl is more than he can handle.

Dark Secret by Wayne Mansfield

Dark Secret by Wayne Mansfield is now available in e-book format!

Nathaniel Longmore hails from Leeds. Employment has brought him to the foggy, cobbled streets of Victorian London. His only problem is that he doesn’t know anyone. Fortune appears to smile on him after he responds, successfully, to an advertisement for a lodger. Sure his new landlady, Mrs Edith Collins, is perhaps a bit too austere, but the room is well-furnished and meals are included in the weekly rent.

But there’s something strange about the attic bedroom of Number 36 Haring Street. It’s not just the fact that things have a habit of moving about by themselves. There’s a feeling, a creeping sensation that he’s never alone in the room. At first he suspects no-nonsense Edith. There’s something a little strange about her, something not-quite-right, and it’s entirely possible she’s the culprit; sneaking around in his room while he’s out. The minute he opens his mouth to broach the subject with her, he regrets it.

How could he ever guess at what he discovers? You may think you know. You may even suspect part of the answer, but for Nathaniel his short sojourn at Haring Street is the catalyst for more than one revelation.

When the second attempt at medication goes as badly wrong as the first, and Darren is forced through a rapid deterioration of mood swings, insomnia, nausea and increasingly dangerous thought patterns, his partner Jayden begins to fear that the only end to this disease will also be the end of Darren himself.

Apart from a single glimmer of hope: when Darren's best friend asks Darren to play at his wedding, Darren begins to slowly return to the half-forgotten piano. As he slowly sinks back into the music that he deserted seven years earlier, the shadows -- finally -- begin to fade.

Will Theodore take a chance on something new, despite the bumbling efforts of his best friend, or remain unrequited forever?

Angles and Curves by George Berger

Angles and Curves by George Berger is now available in e-book format!

Steve is a student at a rural Montana high school who is taking twelfth grade for the second time. There he meets Heather and Gretchen, two elves in a relationship who are outcasts just like him.

Though elvish kingdoms are formally recognized by the federal government, the Supreme Court doesn’t see elves as human, so they don’t benefit from the same basic rights that others do. Steve is transgendered, and can empathize with the elves’ plight. Friendships are forged between him and the elves when they realize all three have had problems with a bully named Melvin and the jocks at school, who are known to sexually assault elves.

Despite his age, Steve lives alone, and has to produce a “parent” for parent/teacher day. He enlists the help of his elvish friends to hire an adult, but their scheme backfires when they’re caught soliciting an undercover policewoman named Sara Raimi. However, with their newfound connection to Sara, they look to find a way to catch Melvin and his cohorts.

Angles and Curves is a fresh and enticing story about racism, sexism, and sexuality, and what it means to be human after all.

Never Met a Stranger by J.M. Snyder

Never Met a Stranger by J.M. Snyder is now available in e-book format!

English professor Gavin Dozier hasn’t had much luck when it comes to love. When his last boyfriend cheated on him, he was driven to experiment with women. Sex with Marian, though, had its own dangers, and before he knew it, he was a father. Now estranged, the only thing Gavin and Marian have in common is their daughter Evie, a precocious seven-year-old who stays with Gavin every other weekend.

While out with her daddy, Evie meets the heavily-tattooed Brody Phelps, a sketch artist with serious talent who still dresses like a brooding punk rocker, even though he’s in his thirties. Brody is instantly attracted to the sexy college professor, but knows Gavin is out of his league -- the man has a kid, which probably means he isn’t gay, and besides, Brody never even graduated from high school. Guys like Gavin don’t go for guys like him.

But when Evie leaves Gavin’s cell phone behind, Brody has the perfect excuse to meet up with them again. To his surprise they hit it off, and when he asks Gavin out, the professor accepts.

Even though Evie brought them together, will her demanding personality pull them apart? Is Gavin ready to trust his heart to someone else again? Can Brody overcome his own fears of inadequacy and let Gavin in? And what will Marian have to say when the father of her child starts dating again?

Evan is a man lost in the modern world. He has a job, a house, and a best friend, Claire, who lives just across a small patch of lawn from him. He also has a hole in his soul he hadn't even realized was there until one night he meets a mysterious stranger, lurking in the shadows of a tree-lined lane where men meet for anonymous, casual sex. There’s something striking and a little terrifying about this stranger, who visits his house one night while he’s blissfully sleeping.

Evan's initial intrigue is soon compounded when he learns they’ve met before. A long, long time ago, and they used to be lovers. He finds it difficult to believe the devilishly handsome stranger’s tale of romance and loss, yet the stranger is finally able to convince Evan every word is true. The love they once shared reawakens and their nights are filled with a passion which hasn’t abated over the centuries.

Soon it becomes clear they’re in danger of being parted once again, possibly for the rest of eternity. Neither wants to lose their soul mate a second time. But Evan’s lover is reluctant to give him the very thing he needs to ensure they remain together forever more.

Born This Way by Francis Gideon

Born This Way by Francis Gideon is now available in e-book format!

Jacob Matthews has gotten really sick of confessing his autobiography every time he meets someone new. Ever since coming out as a gay transgender man, Jacob feels as if no one really cares about who he is right now. Instead, they would much rather have access to his past and create another Lifetime movie out of it. The typical transgender narrative, Jacob notes, always ends in surgery or tragedy. It’s been two years since Jacob’s crossed the final marker to become who he is, and he’s running out of options of what to do next.

The only way that Jacob can overcome his own backstory is by blending in. Every Tuesday Night, he heads out to the local gay club called Boy Division and watches gay men from the sidelines. But when Jacob hooks up with a stranger who understands him with just a simple look, Jacob soon realizes that blending into the walls no longer satisfies him.

Jacob soon runs into his old friends at the LGBT community center, where he is forced to reconsider his life beyond rainbow colors and poppy disco beats. In group therapy, Jacob is confronted by the harsh realities of being transgender, hate crime violence, and the dwindling offers for his future. Just before Jacob leaves, his favorite doctor makes him a bet: if Jacob can find someone to connect to, then she will renew his testosterone prescription without question or qualm. She urges him to find some type of community, even if it’s not in the community center’s brightly painted walls.

Jacob takes the bet, figuring he has nothing to lose but his happy ending that may -- or may not -- really exist. He becomes determined to find the mystery man from the club again, even if it means blowing his cover.

Wollstone by Hayden Thorne

Wollstone by Hayden Thorne is now available in e-book format!

The moment Emil Gogean sets foot inside Wollstone Academy’s fairy tale-like campus, he realizes his freshman year in high school is bound to be a very strange one. The school itself, a uniquely romanticized boarding school for boys, boasts remarkable elements that appear to be deliberate -- as though a hidden power has chosen woodland details, a chapel ruin, and school masters who seem to hearken back to a long-gone age, with a clear purpose in mind.

When strange things begin to happen to Emil, an unnerving warning from his late grandmother returns to haunt him. A warning about Emil attracting the attention of the king of the dead.

Strange faces in wood patterns and mullioned windows. The apparition of a boy among the trees. The unfathomable feeling of sadness permeating the idyllic environment. Emil gradually learns that Wollstone is more than just a school, that the answers to a three-hundred-year-old mystery surrounding a tragic romance lie in the ruined stones of a small chapel and in Nature itself. And that Emil, whose appearance in school has set certain wheels in motion, will have to place himself at the mercy of three mysterious students if he wishes to learn the truth about Wollstone, the boy lost in the woods, and himself.

Paul Alan Fahey on Too Long Among the Dead

Paul Alan Fahey on Too Long Among the Dead

When I set out to write Too Long Among the Dead, I had no idea I’d finish it. Writing a novel length work, at least for me, was quite daunting. Anyone familiar with my work knows I mainly write short books. Short stories have always been my first love, and it was only until I published my first e-book with JMS Books, The View from 16 Podwale Street, that I learned I could stretch a bit and write a novella. If you’ve read any of the books in my gay wartime romance series, Lovers and Liars, you’ll know what I mean. For me, writing a novel was a huge stretch; it always seemed a vast wasteland with way too much room to get lost in and hang myself.

Last November, I took “the write a book in a month challenge” and signed up for National Novel Writing Month, known as NaNoWriMo. With much encouragement from other JMS Books authors, I made the daily word count and ended up with a sprawling work -- for me -- of over 50,000 words that eventually became Too Long Among the Dead.

Here’s a short blurb for the book that I hope will intrigue you:

Dr. Haleigh Hugo thinks he has found the perfect setting for his experimental treatment plan -- a mountain home called Devonshire. He and his lover, Dr. Guy Sanford, take six of their most fragile female patients for a weekend of relaxation and therapy in the high Sierras. But Devonshire has other plans as the house harbors a terrible and painful secret that haunts anyone who comes near.

I’d love to know what you think once you finish Too Long Among the Dead, so please drop me a line on my website and let me know if I’ve succeeded.

So when he asks what she’d like for her birthday, she says the only other thing she would really love. A threesome.

Nick’s best friend Ray has always been flirtatious -- not just with Lisa, but with Nick, too. She knows the guys have experimented sexually in the past, so getting them together again, this time with her in the middle, won’t be a problem.

On Lisa’s birthday, Nick treats her like a princess, but things heat up royally when Ray joins them in the bedroom.
