Deadly Valentine

Deadly Valentine

John Luke Maxwell

Dating a porn star comes with certain expectations, especially when one's relationship remains somewhat in the limelight. More than once, Rafael Vásquez has been asked via social media if his porn legend hunk of a boyfriend, Jean Locke Holmes, will ever come out of retirement. Holmes seems content to live out a life of leisure with Raf, however, focusing on their relationship and the occasional baffling murder case that comes their way.

That is, until a chance encounter with Holmes' old director pushes Holmes back into the business. Kincaid Marx, the man whose movies made Holmes the iconic gay sex stud that he is, wants to make one final movie before he retires from filmmaking. This production is to be Kincaid's magnum opus, a blockbuster-worthy flick that will rock the Grabby Awards. For that to happen, though, Kincaid needs Holmes to agree to star in it. Joining the lineup-up is a second porn legend, Casper Peyton, whom Holmes just so happens to be a fan of. The two salacious studs will have to share far more than the spotlight, and Raf finds himself sidelined into the role of extra and script doctor.

Things take an even more complicated turn after several accidents occur on set. Someone seems determined to shut Kincaid's production down for good. Adding to the mystery is a sinister presence stalking Peyton, one who claims through threatening Valentines to know secrets lurking in Peyton's past. Holmes will have to get to the bottom of this mystery—and get in touch with his inner bottom in the process. Raf learns very quickly the differences between fantasy and reality. Can his relationship with Holmes survive the stud's return to stardom?

Of Gods and Boys

Of Gods and Boys

Harry F. Rey

Teenager Achilles is fresh out of juvie.

It wasn't even for something he did; he took the fall for a crime committed by his father, a member of the Greek mafia. As hard as prison was for Achilles, being outside is proving even harder. He struggles to reconnect with his former girlfriend Carla while getting his GED and navigating the bizarre parole condition of qualifying for a Greco-Roman wrestling competition. At least his mom, an ardent follower of traditional Greek religion, is there to help Achilles win the favor of the gods with animal sacrifices in the back garden.

When Principal McKenna sets Achilles up with a student tutor, out-and-proud Hispanic math genius Jesús, things start to turn mythical. After saving Jesús from a violent homophobic attack, the Gods want a word with Achilles. With the help of Underworld boatman Charon (in full drag), Achilles' heroic actions spark an epic adventure of mythological proportions that will force Achilles to confront, and defeat, all his many, many demons in order to win what his heart truly desires.

Of Gods and Boys publishes Friday May 17th.

Arty Tekken Chronicles, Book One

Kon Blacke

Arty Tekken has a problem.

Of all the presents in all the world, Tobias’ first anniversary gift should be special. Which is why Arty is going to get him something wonderful, fabulous, even…otherworldly.

Luckily, Arty can open a wormhole and hitchhike to the ends of time and space, but what should he get?

A bumbling attempt to find the perfect present lands Arty on Atashaal, a strange planet where the Living Crystals can be found. Unfortunately, he also finds himself smack bang in the middle of a civil war.

Desperate for the secret to Arty’s abilities, aliens capture him, seeking the answers.

But Arty can no more explain this than he can the garbled voices he alone is hearing. When they start to make sense, Arty’s past begins to trickle in, blurring the lines between reality and fantasy. All he wants to do now is get off Atashaal no matter what. But with his failing legs, his escape from capture is also hindered by the fact he’s swamped in the voices and the burning desire to get back to Tobias.

As Arty grows weaker, he doesn’t know if he will ever see his beloved Tobias again or whether he’ll remain stuck on Atashaal, a prisoner forever in every sense of the word…
