#ThrowbackThursday #TBT – A Snippet from an oldie: Photo Shoot

It seems that other than my Saturday “Rainbow Snippets” and my Sunday “what I’m reading on the treadmill” posts, I’ve veered off the track of including things pertinent to my myself or own writing in my blog posts. For now I do plan to continue to sign up for promo posts for other writers’ new releases, etc. (although they do turn into a bit of a time suck), but I’m …

#FlashFictionFriday – Feb. 9, 2018 – King Kong vs. The Skinny Pirate BONUS SCENE #FlashFic #AmWriting

Today’s Flash Fiction Friday scene uses the words left in the comments of last week’s post: mutatis mutandis – mansuetude And now everyone reading this can join me in a round of “Nell is a big meanie” for leaving me with those prompt words! 🤪 Nah…just kidding. Nell is the sweetest of the sweet! And actually, the words worked out quite nicely, I think, so maybe we should give Nell a …

#FlashFictionFriday Dec 8, 2017 – Photo Shoot Bonus Scene

This one uses the words, moisturizer, camera, and bikini, left in the comments of the December 1 FFF post. I wrote a short bonus scene featuring Eddie and Trent from Photo Shoot, a short story in my collection, Snapshots. Here are a couple photos that provided extra inspiration for this little glimpse into their lives: You can find additional bonus scenes from the stories in Snapshots (including a long bonus scene for Photo Shoot), …

#FlashFictionFriday – Bonus Scene – Alt. POV – Nevermore (Snapshots)

This is my not-quite-Flash-Fiction-Friday post, since although it’s a short scene, I didn’t use any word or image prompts like I usually do. I’ve actually used the 3 prompt words left for me in the comments a couple weeks ago (as well as a few additional prompts), but that bit of flash will be posting elsewhere. Look for that holiday-themed scene featuring Harrison and Mason on Nell Iris’s blog on …

Happy Halloween – Oct. 31, 2017

Happy Halloween! One of my earliest short stories, Moving On, is set on Halloween. It was originally published in 2008 at Torquere Press. Earlier this year it was reworked and reedited for inclusion in my Snapshots collection of shorts: Blurb On Halloween, Graeme accompanies the love of his life, Brandt, to the annual costume party. This year, though, Brandt isn’t dancing with Graeme, he’s dancing with a handsome stranger, and Graeme couldn’t …

#RainbowSnippets August 26, 2017 – Cow Pie Bingo – Snapshots

I’ve joined the Rainbow Snippets group on Facebook.

EDIT: The contest ended, and Rafflecopter picked a winner (congratulations Maggie). The prize package is on the way. Thank you to all who stopped by to enter the contest! Check back toward the end of October when I’ll likely run another contest with some of my GayRomLit overstock. ♡ I’ll probably continue to tweak things, because that’s my nature, but all-in-all I think my website overhaul is now complete. It’s …

Readers & Writers for LGBT Chechens

Have you heard about Dale Cameron Lowry and Olivia Helling’s project, Readers & Writers for LGBT Chechens yet? Here’s a quote from his page that summarizes it nicely: “The writers & artists on this page have joined together to raise funds for the Russian LGBT Network, ILGA-Europe and Rainbow Railroad, which are helping LGBT Chechens escape to safety.” I’m donating a bundle of signed paperbacks [’Til Death Do Us Part (print …
