University of Southern Georgia: Dan & Billy
Heath Greenfield
Some people know exactly who they are. As a matter of fact, some people can’t help being who they are even if it doesn’t fit into a conventional world. Other people struggle to figure out what that even means. Dan is the first. Billy is the second. Together, they are exactly what each one needs.
When a horrible roommate forces Dan—a theatre major and the apple of his family’s collective eye—to desperate measures, he turns to Billy to save him. What he doesn’t know is that Billy needs him just as much. Billy, the staunch, upright, gay Republican who has secrets of his own, is bowled over by the bright, forthright Dan, and finds himself inconveniently in love. Dan adores a man of conviction, and he’ll force himself to settle for friendship if he must…but as fate has it, things are about to change…

Omarati
DC Juris
Everything changed for werewolf Calliph after the Shifter War. Now nothing more than a slave and plaything to human Prince Obyn, Calliph finds himself on the Golden Magus, sailing across the sea with his owner. But fate has something more in mind for Calliph in the form of Ship's First Mate Mateo—who just happens to be Calliph's Omarati—his soul mate... and a werecat.
Heartbroken, Calliph knows he can't stay with Mateo—he is forced to follow wherever Obyn leads. Years later, when an attack at sea lands Mateo in the hands of vicious pirates, the cat discovers that, though time has changed some things, his bond with Calliph is eternal.

A Taste of Honey
Ari McKay
Boone Phillips needs a girlfriend and fast! His family reunion is approaching, and if he shows up alone, his mother will throw every woman in sight at him. But the only “woman” Boone trusts enough to ask is Honey, the alter ego of his gay, cross-dressing best friend Rob. Desperate, he begs for Rob’s help.
Rob has doubts about the wisdom of agreeing to help because he’s had a crush on his straight friend for years. After a practice date, however, he decides to go along with the charade, despite the chance that Boone might discover his secret infatuation.
Between nosey relatives, illegal moonshine, and the sight of Rob in white lace panties, Boone starts to wonder if he’s as straight as he’d thought. When an earth-shattering kiss sends Rob running to protect his heart, however, Boone learns some surprising things about both his family and himself. Now he needs to convince Rob to give him another chance, or else his first taste of Honey might also be his last.

The Butcher, the Baker, the Candlestick Maker
Rob Rosen
A photography student gets more than he bargains for when he photographs a blond Polish butcher, who he has sex with in the back of the butcher shop; a ginger-haired Irish baker, who he has sex with in the back of the bakery; and a brunette British candlestick maker, who he has sex with in the back of the candle shop. All of the men photographed are in period costume and all have tricks up their sleeves—and, of course, down their pants. In the end, a budding romance evolves between the student and the butcher.

Riverdance Anthology
with stories by L.J. Hamlin, Asta Idonea, Dale Cameron Lowry, Morwen Navarre, Lynn Townsend
Riverdance is a compilation of all things Irish. From fae flitting hither and thither trying to trick their quarry, to a modern-day Highland games, complete with caber tossing and traditional dance, our romantic compilation of Celtic tales and lore are sure to remind readers that love is the pot-o-gold at the end of the rainbow. Morwen Navarre brings us The Sidhe’s Apprentice—a tale of a young man desperately wanting to be a wizard, like his grandfather, who never banked on falling in love with his mentor. In Finding Balance, Lynn Townsend sets readers in the middle of the Highland games—as well as between two former lovers who need to forgive and forget. L. J. Hamline’s tale, Luck of the Irish, tells of some lucky days that turn into lucky nights. Born of Fire, Dale Cameron Lowry’s offering, brings readers the abduction of a human by fairies—and the greatest lesson of all: love is more than superficial. Finally, Asta Idonea’s The First Swallow of Spring chronicles an annual pilgrimage to the land of the fae, and how the wiley lord tries to keep a human for his own.

Stories: A Lifelong Love Affair

“Reading is a trip!” This was the message a cartoon character once trumpeted to my wide, child-like eyes, as I stared at the TV screen. The character popped into a variety of places, had a variety of adventures, as he pointed out all the possible places your imagination could visit, when you read. 

The truth is he’d been understating the possibilities. When I read, I not only traveled to different places, but to different times and entirely different worlds. I became many different characters, as I read. Together, we had adventures, got into trouble, fell in love, and learned many secrets. 

I could never accept the notion that readers were hid behind books, and never lived. My life was so much fuller, richer, and more interesting, because of all the ideas, stories, and characters in my head. You could learn a great deal from books, secrets you’d discover nowhere else. Stories might be fiction, but there were truths encoded within them, if you knew how to unlock them. More and more, I felt as if I were part of a great, creative energy, which the characters and stories were generating. I wanted to contribute to that energy. I wanted to make other people feel some of the magic, which L. Frank Baum, Beatrix Potter, J.R.R. Tolkien, Robin McKinely, Anne Rice, and countless others had inspired me with. For I was already creating my own characters, with the potential for story within them. 

I’d fallen head over heels in love with the magic of story. It’s a passion, which continues to this day. Is it any wonder I wanted to create stories of my own? I wasn’t yet twelve years old, when I realized I wanted to a writer. 

Unfortunately, it’s not the easiest of jobs to pursue, professionally. It was a lot harder, when I started out. I worked for years, trying to produce a draft, which wouldn’t get chucked in the trash, by a bored editor, wondering if s/he should bothering reading past the first sentence. I heard terrible stories about how hard the life of a professional writer was, along with how impossible it was to become one of the published. Fortunately, I had some very supportive people, who helped me with some of my material needs, so I’d have the time to pursue my dream. 

Years later, it’s finally paying off. I’ve written a story, ‘Fairest’, which Torquere/Prizm is publishing. It’s coming out May 11, 2016. To most of you, I’m a new writer, just appearing in the world of published works. For me, it’s the successful completion of a cherished quest I’ve been on, since childhood. When I realized ‘Fairest’ was going to have an ISBN number, there were tears in my eyes. Such a little thing, yet it meant the world to me. I’d done it. I was going to have a place in the Library of Congress. I’d be leaving a visible mark as a writer. 


There are more quests to accomplish, though, as I learn about the world of social media, marketing, promotion, and all the important skills to make your book a success. It’s terrifying, but it’s exciting as well. There are more stories to write. There are readers out there, willing to take a chance on those stories. I’ve just got to complete my secondary quest, getting the word out to those readers. I hope I find you. May you find me, as well.

University of Southern Georgia: Dan & Billy
Heath Greenfield
Some people know exactly who they are. As a matter of fact, some people can’t help being who they are even if it doesn’t fit into a conventional world. Other people struggle to figure out what that even means. Dan is the first. Billy is the second. Together, they are exactly what each one needs.
When a horrible roommate forces Dan—a theatre major and the apple of his family’s collective eye—to desperate measures, he turns to Billy to save him. What he doesn’t know is that Billy needs him just as much. Billy, the staunch, upright, gay Republican who has secrets of his own, is bowled over by the bright, forthright Dan, and finds himself inconveniently in love. Dan adores a man of conviction, and he’ll force himself to settle for friendship if he must…but as fate has it, things are about to change…

Omarati
DC Juris
Everything changed for werewolf Calliph after the Shifter War. Now nothing more than a slave and plaything to human Prince Obyn, Calliph finds himself on the Golden Magus, sailing across the sea with his owner. But fate has something more in mind for Calliph in the form of Ship's First Mate Mateo—who just happens to be Calliph's Omarati—his soul mate... and a werecat.

Heartbroken, Calliph knows he can't stay with Mateo—he is forced to follow wherever Obyn leads. Years later, when an attack at sea lands Mateo in the hands of vicious pirates, the cat discovers that, though time has changed some things, his bond with Calliph is eternal.

Enslaved Valentine
A.J. Llewellyn and D.J. Manly
It’s been said that all a submissive can do when they are bound and tied, is feel. For former boxer Hamish Murdock, all he’s ever done is feel. Feel bad that is. He never took pleasure from pain until meeting Paul, whom he thinks of as his tikkun, the man who rights all the wrongs in his life. For Paul and Hamish, pain is pleasure in their most secret, private moments. On the outside, they are a normal, devoted couple with successful businesses…
But deep down, theirs is a strict D/s relationship that’s about to be tested in their first BDSM vacation. Paul’s chosen a secret destination for Hamish in their Valentine’s Day long-weekend. Can Hamish handle what Paul has in mind? More importantly, will Paul be able to keep his secret and keep his man under control? Or will their first BDSM voyage be their last?

Swift's Temptation
J.R. Loveless
Small town farm boy Fagan Swift moves to New York City to escape the suffocating confines of his hometown and, after nine months of job searching, stumbles on a well-paying position at an escort agency. Once there, he meets the most arrogant, infuriating man he’s ever known, Xavier James. The sparks fly from the very moment they meet, igniting a fire between the two men that blazes out of control.
Too much champagne at the company Christmas party finds Fagan waking up in a stranger’s hotel room. Only his hangover is the least of his worries when he finds that the stranger is none other than Xavier, and a call from his best friend, Trinity, sends him winging towards home when his father ends up in the hospital. Blackmail and lust follow swiftly on Fagan’s heels and he has no choice but to give into Xavier’s demands to be his lover. His father’s life depends on it. Can Fagan survive long enough to untangle the web of blackmail Xavier has woven around him or will it drag his soul down into the darkness threatening to consume him?
