In the late 10th century, a magical portal was discovered between a grove of oak trees in Ireland and a grove of redwoods in what would become the state of Oregon. Since then, the Fitzgerald family of witches has guarded both ends of the portal. Now, an unscrupulous developer and a corrupt governor plan to raize the redwoods known as The Witches’ Woods and build an exclusive resort. It’s up to Sean Fitzgerald and his family to save the trees and protect the secret of the portal.  James Buckler has been sent to oversee the removal of the woods and build the resort. Two things stand in the way of a relationship between him and Sean. First, he has never admitted, even to himself, that he’s gay. Second, he doesn’t believe in witches.

Behind the Mask

Neil Heath-Hartley’s debit novella, Behind the Mask. Available from Amazon, Smashwords and the CDP website. Everyone is so afraid of change and the unknown that their minds are like a closed lid on a coffin. Those who don’t like change refuse to see it in their lives until too late, and then wonder what went wrong. At least Jerome knew the change was happening and tried to accept it from the beginning. His life changes when the school bully confronts him about his sexuality, instead of beating him to a pulp, the jock surprises him by wanting to know more – intimately more. Life never seemed better. But the relationship doesn’t last long and the rejection proves too much for Jerome to handle. Will he ever find a man to peel away the mask of rejection? Or is he destined to live a life without the love he seeks? Visit http://www.cooldudespublishing.com/behind-mask-neil-heath-hartley/ for more information.

Celebrating Rob Damon

We’re Celebrating Rob Damon with three of his books rolled into one.  Tough Love Buddy, Hit Man Run and Into the Team.  From romance on a construction site, to extreme bromance in a football team.  Rob writes off the cuff. He thinks outside the box.  His characters aren’t stereotypical of gay men and he writes with passion.  From the very first word of each of these books, Rob invites you to take a journey with him and he doesn’t let up.

A bachelor of science (Computing), Rob worked as a software developer for over 15 years before turning his full time attention to learning the craft of writing. His love of science drew him into science fiction, but his love of man drew him to the MM genre. With his strategy of thinking differently, he aims to bring something to the market that pushes the boundaries. Rob was born and raised in Manchester, England. Spent seven years living in London, but now lives back in his home city. Interests include learning all he can about people – what makes them tick, what motivates them.

Some rave reviews for Mr. Damon’s work

It seems I’ve found another new author to keep my eye on. Honestly I can’t remember who posted something on Facebook about this book, but after reading the blurb I knew I had to read it. I quickly added it to my read list at Love Bytes before anyone else could, and I’m glad to say it was worth it. Mr. Damon did a great job with the book. His writing style and world building were good and the editing was fine. – Daniel Mitton reviewing Into the Team.

Fast paced easy read that ends way too soon! Where is the follow up? – PDX-Dad  reviewing Into the Team.

I couldn’t put this down, a gripping suspense drama romance story that had me gluded to pages. This was my second book from this author and I’m glad i reunited with his fantastic stories again. The storyline is different to others I’ve read with bad and the good guys but I’m noting this has a happy for now ending. – Faye K Reviews  Reviewing Hit Man Run

Tough Love Buddy was an MM story with a bit of difference. The two MC’s Dale and Blake are construction workers (Doesn’t that put a hot image into your mind ladies) They both have pasts that they would rather leave in the past but circumstances make the both help each to face their pasts. The hotness level is fairly high as they fumble their way around each other. Enjoyed this story very much and look forward to reading more from Rob Damon. – Maggie23 Reviewing Tough Love Buddy

The Good Son by Oscar Orland

The Good Son by Oscar Orland


Every gay publisher should have an AIDS story on their list. The Good Son by Oscar Orland is ours. Gay life in the 80’s almost crumbled under the threat of AIDS. Conspiracy theories abound of how this devastating, and, at the time, fatal disease launched it’s scathing attack on gay society. This is the story of two young men caught in the web. It’s a powerful essay, not just another AIDS story. It’s hard hitting and pulls a punch. It’s harrowing. It’s funny. It’s sad. But most of all, the story needs to be told lest we forget those who passed during this ugly plague. The Good Son is available from Smashwords and Amazon and from the CoolDudes Publishing website.

“Oh, what a tragic web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.”

London in the 1980s. Billy, aged forty, is lonely and closeted. He lives with Agnes, to whom he is a dutiful son. She is unaware of his sexual orientation. Billy has no success with gay partners until he unexpectedly meets the younger, highly desirable Carl. The two fall in love and form a passionate, sexually fulfilling relationship, much to Agnes’s homophobic chagrin. She disowns her only son and orders him from her house.

Exciting new vistas open for Billy when he moves in with the sexually uninhibited Carl and is launched onto the buzzing London gay scene.
All is perfect until both men meet temptations in the shape of handsome, sexually charismatic actor, Tony, and lusty cockney lad, Ted, with whom they form sexual liaisons that they keep secret from each other. They both believe that they can have their cake and eat it as a web of deception weaves around them, from which escape seems impossible.

As the decade proceeds, AIDS rears its ugly head, adding complex and tragic strands to the web. Will the web be broken, to allow the victims to escape?
