Another Healing by M. Raiya
James can heal the sick, but the gift comes with a price: he falls in love with those he heals. When he heals Ambient, that changes.
When James first discovers he can heal, he thinks he has a rare and miraculous gift. But when he learns the price, it feels more like a curse. He falls passionately and completely in love with every person, male or female, he heals. But only until he heals again, when he becomes hotly infatuated with the next person. He doesn’t dare express feelings he knows are only transitory or hold out hope anyone will love him back under those conditions.
One night, he meets Ambient, the victim of a car accident, dying, his neck broken. James heals him despite knowing what is in store. He can’t resist Ambient, and to his amazement, Ambient returns his feelings. Thinking Ambient has broken the curse, James heals the next injured person he comes across. To his joy, and confusion, he does not fall in love anew. If anything, his feelings toward Ambient intensify. Awash with the certainty that somehow, he and Ambient are meant for each other, they set out to learn the truth about James’s strange power.

Rat Bastard by Stephen Osborne
After his rat bastard of a stepfather cuts him off, Patrick gets a job at the Phantom Lady Inn so he can buy his boyfriend Tony a ring.
Sequel to Pop Goes the Weasel
Patrick “Weasel” Weasley is worried he’s not spending enough time with his new boyfriend Tony, now that they are living and working in different towns. He decides the best way to cement the relationship is to buy Tony a ring for Christmas. Unfortunately, Weasel’s evil stepfather–a rat bastard if ever there was one–has cut him off without a cent, and he is left with no other choice. He must (gasp!) get a job!
Weasel wouldn’t mind working at the Phantom Lady Inn if it wasn’t for Tony’s ex-boyfriend Gates Stumpenhorst, who wants to beat the stuffing out of him, or Cicely Talbot, a writer who believes she can prove to Weasel that he’s not really gay. As if that wasn’t enough, the deputy sheriff thinks Weasel is the local arsonist. Adding to their troubles is a rumored Phantom Lady haunting the inn and pilfering trinkets. With all this going on, Weasel might not live to survive Christmas, much less find time to go on a date with Tony!

A couple people have asked me if I had any inspiration for writing my first novella. It actually came out of a conversation I had with a friend. We were talking about a mutal friend that was in the porn industry and how it had changed him. He wasn’t gay, but did gay porn for the money … lots of money when compared to straight porn. I wanted to show that one could get out of that world, find love. That not all were judgemental in regards to pornography or those that participated in porn.
I didn’t write this for fame, money or anything like that. I really wanted to show hope, the light at the end of the tunnel. I can only hope that my friend sees the story one day and finds his path from self-destruction and back to his family and loved ones.
I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea and it’s not a great piece of literature. But if it helps just one person see that love can be found, regardless of past mistakes or sordid pasts, it’s been worth it.

Not what you’re thinking … this is my first release and wide-audience blog. Sorry it’s a little late in the day, but got called into work and while I love writing, it doesn’t quite pay the bills … yet.
I’m JR Shelley, author of the newly-released ‘Forever Fantasy.’ It’s my first M/M novella, so I’m kinda nervous at its reception. Thought I’d start off with an except, give you guys a taste of the story.
“I’m just not used to someone wanting to spend time with me and….” Logan paused, running his finger along the rim of his mug.
“And not want something in return.”
RJ put his hand over Logan’s. “I do want something in return.”
Logan stared at him. “What?”
“I want your friendship. I want to help you deal with your demons.”
Logan gave him a half-smile. “Thanks. How about a walk on the beach? I find the ocean very calming.”
“I don’t know much about romance.”
“Simple gestures can be romantic. My favorite is to be surprised with breakfast in bed.” The waiter brought their food out.
“Look, I probably should have asked earlier, but… you have someone waiting on you back home?”
RJ let out a sigh. “No, not anymore. Another reason I came out here. He… he died.”
“I’m sorry. I… I shouldn’t have asked.”
“No, it’s okay. It’s been a little over three months. He was someone I met in the military. He couldn’t… he couldn’t deal with his demons.”
“He treated you to breakfast in bed?”
RJ smiled, even through the sad eyes. “Always on my birthday. And a few times just because.”
“I’ll keep that in mind if I ever, you know, find someone.”
“I hope you do.”
They finished breakfast and headed toward the beach, hand in hand. The skies were turning a bit gray, a hint of rain in the air.
“You sure you want to head out? Looks like the sky’s going to open up.” RJ stopped to look at the clouds on the horizon.
“A little rain won’t kill us. Anyway, isn’t rain romantic?” Logan waggled his eyebrows.
“You can be corny sometimes, you know that?”
“Part of my charm.”
“Okay, Prince Charming, lead the way.”
They got about a half mile down the beach toward the outcropping of rocks when the soft rain started. RJ leaned up against a large boulder, rain plastering his clothes to his skin.
Logan put his hands on either side of RJ’s head, dipping his own head in close, then back out, the lightest of kisses between them as the rain fell. Soon they were exploring each other’s mouths, their bodies touching chest to groin.
Logan was about to give in to the sensation of RJ being so near when RJ pushed him back. “Not now.”
“Being groped on the beach in the rain not doing it for you?” Logan stepped back.
“No, it’s not that. I want more for you.”
Logan wrinkled his brow. “More for me?”
“Not a quick hand job or blow job on the beach. Tell me, what do you feel right now?”
“Honestly, a little tight in the pants and it’s not all because of the rain.”
“No, how do you feel, up here?” RJ tapped Logan’s head.
“What am I supposed to feel?”
RJ looked pained. “God, I’m so sorry.”
“You don’t feel anything? Nothing for me, nothing for the beauty of the moment?”
“I know I want to make you feel good.”
RJ shook his head. “What do you want?”
Logan stepped back even farther, almost like he’d been struck. “Why would it matter what I want?”
RJ pulled him back, wrapping his arms around him. “It matters. You matter to me.” He turned them, with Logan now against the rock. “Feel me. Feel me… loving you.” RJ claimed Logan’s lips, sending him a passionate kiss. “Tell me what you want, right here, right now. Don’t think about me. Just tell me what you want.”
“I… I want you. To feel your lips on mine, your hands on my body.”
“That I can do.” RJ kissed his lips, nibbling down his neck while he slid his hand up under Logan’s wet T-shirt. He gently caressed Logan’s chest. “Just feel. Don’t think about me, be selfish. Enjoy being loved.”
That’s a bit from the story. I hope you like it.

Raised in near seclusion by an agoraphobic mother, Davy Cooper’s social skills are almost nonexistent. Now that his mother has died, he needs to make friends for the first time in his life. He catches Gavin Walker’s eye, but the sexy, confident, bad boy hipster intimidates shy Davy so much that he throws away Gavin’s number every time he offers it.
When Gavin defends Davy from a rude guy, Davy begins to warm to him. However, with his limited experience, he thinks he and Gavin are too different, and anything more than a casual acquaintance will end in complete disaster.

I have to admit that I have a love/hate relationship with earphones. I love the idea of them but they hurt my ears no matter how expensive they are. Also my kids steal them. EVERY SINGLE PAIR. I like headphones if I’m sitting at the computer. My son has a purple pair that I always use but he won’t let me walk down the street wearing them. Meanie.
Do any of you use audiobooks? I know very little about them because I rarely listen to anything whilst I’m out and about, but I know some of my friends are addicted to them, with their favourite readers. It’s like they have fallen in love with books all over again and I really ought to find a pair of headphones that fit me so that I can feel that love.
