“When all you ever wished for is the last thing you ever wanted….”

Description: “Cierrai is running away from a past that’s still breathing down his neck. Jack has no past, his memory wiped in the accident that killed his parents. They meet and their lives move forward like stones skimming the surface of the water, dipping into memories that want to surface and those that want to lie buried forever.

Together, they struggle to come to terms with what happened in the past and where they want to go in the future, but can Jack cope with a man who likes to dress in leather mini-skirts and silk kimonos? Can Cierrai trust Jack with the secrets of his past; secrets he can’t escape, secrets that are snapping at his heels?

When those secrets catch up, forcing Cierrai back to the life he’d left, a life that was slowly draining his life away, he and Jack’s love is both threatened and tested by forces from without and within.”

About The Author:

 

Born into a poor but loving mining family in the United Kingdom, Nephylim grew up in the beautiful and history rich South Wales Valleys, becoming the first in her family to attend university. As a lawyer practicing Family Law for several years, the profession allowed Nephylim to learn more about human nature at its worst and best moments, and develop empathy and a view of life not limited by social standing or background.

Tapping into the heritage of her people that throughout Earth’s ages welcomed the wandering bard into the hearts of their villages as keepers of lore, Nephylim trained as a Druid and brings the richness of her Celtic past and spiritual training to enrich and elevate her writing. Since a child Nephylim has been fascinated with other worlds, which exist within and alongside her own and has reveled in creating worlds and characters for others to enjoy.

Despite lack of family support, Nephylim continued writing privately and eventually found the Gay Authors website. With the positive response and a warm welcome received, she found the confidence to pursue her passion to a greater degree. Feeling gay fiction was a woefully neglected corner of the market where readers were all too often presented with what amounted to erotica, Nephylim strives to write quality gay fiction where sex and sexuality is not the central premise. Instead, concentration is given to character and narrative development through storytelling that goes beyond the physical.

Nephylim still resides in Wales, UK, and enjoys writing, reading, art, and taking part in medieval reenactments.

The Final Chapter to The A-Men Trilogy by John Trevillian launches in March 2012!

“…A futuristic action-lover’s must read!”–Literary R&R

Join us at the official book launch London, UK | 26.03.2012
Book launch details

Description: “The A-Men Trilogy breaks new ground in mixing noir-style sci-fi with mythic fantasy elements, with five first-person viewpoints on the action.

Switching Dead City for the crystal arks of the thirteen corporate colonies, Jack comes face to face with the full extremity of D’Alessandro’s master plan.

With the help of Pure, Dingo the Wonder Dog and the blind, psychic detective Arken Ellis Winterman, Jack is led back to D’Arkadia, his family’s deserted starstation, for a final confrontation with the terrible past he has tried so desperately to escape.”

The Author

John Trevillian is an award-winning British author of neopunk science fiction. Fascinated by the crossover points of technology, religion and myth, Trevillian’s work is informed as much by the roles of magazine editor, technology writer and IT journalist as his training in the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids and Native American Shamanism (Lakota Sioux). He also travels extensively and is founder of the Talliston interior design and art project, both attempts to realise a life full of enchantment, magic and those mysterious forces of story which move the human soul.

“Jack is a man with no memory awakening in a dark and dangerous metropolis on the eve of its destruction. The only clue to his former life: a handwritten note in the pages of a book of faerie tales entitled Forevermore.

Marked for death in a peace-keeping force sent to quell the riots, he finds sanctuary and survival with other renegades on the streets of Dead City. Battling to survive they form the infamous A-Men, misfits who have a unifying dream: to be special. Yet that is until their paths cross with Dr Nathaniel Glass and his mysterious experiment locked deep beneath the Phoenix Tower.

Mixing dark future, noir and urban fantasy, join The Nowhereman, Sister Midnight, Pure, D’Alessandro and the 23rdxenturyboy as they fight for their lives on a non-stop ride into a nightmarish world of ultra-violence. If the world’s going to end, pray it doesn’t end like this.”

Story blurb:

“Four years have passed since the destruction of the Phoenix Tower and with it the infamous A-Men. The once-great Dead City is now a no-go zone; abandoned and forgotten. Living in this nightmarish underworld Jack is a twisted shadow of his former self, a lone survivor in a world of warring ganglords and their crazed disciples.

Yet something is stirring in the sanctuary of the near-space starstations; a realisation that its governing sentience is dying and the one thing that can save civilisation fell to earth a long, long time ago.

From unrelentingly visceral to outrageously comic, this is a harsh and poetic twenty-second century noir fable. Yet beneath the hardboiled action is a philosophical journey of one man’s rebirth in a harsh and unforgiving world.”

“The conclusion to The A-Men trilogy. Switching Dead City for the crystal arks of the thirteen corporate colonies, Jack comes face to face with the full extremity of D’Alessandro’s master plan. Awakening as godking in the fantasy realms of Forevermore, effectively trapped within the pages of his own faerie tale book, he realises his only chance at redemption is to reform the A-Men for one last amazing adventure.

With the help of Pure, Dingo the Wonder Dog and the blind, psychic detective Arken Ellis Winterman, Jack finds his path leads inextricably back to D’Arkadia, his family’s deserted starstation, for a final confrontation with the terrible past he has tried so desperately to escape.

An astonishing final chapter to the A-Men trilogy, this is a story of the realisation that nothing is forever, and of identifying what is important before it is far, far too late.”

Press Release! Coming January 16, 2012 Peter Christian Hall’s- “American Fever: A Tale of Romance & Pestilence”

Praise for American Fever from TeleRead’s Court Merrigan:

“By far the best stab at the future of the novel I’ve seen … The story of a flu-obsessed blogger who predicts a flu pandemic and then records its ravages, 
Hall taps into a deep literary vein of paranoia … This novel-as-blog soon had me wiping down every surface in reach with disinfectant …
 You’re missing something if you miss American Fever.”

* * * *
Mr. Hall’s revolutionary novel, American Fever: A Tale of Romance & Pestilence (Arterial Witness, 2012) will be published on Monday, Jan. 16, 2012 throughout the English-reading world and in Europe.
American Fever presents an East Village blogger’s view of an H5N1 avian flu pandemic that rocks America and unleashes national repression, even as his personal life explodes with promise.

Synopsis:


A young libertarian flu fighter huddles at home in New York’s East Village, blogging about a devastating avian flu pandemic as he sells masks, gloves, and goggles over the Internet. An intriguing, vexing woman stalks him while he delves into the mysteries of influenza and serves up colorful commentary on the chaos swirling around—and within—his world.

“When ‘Count Blogula’ gets involved with some lively community flu activists, he collides with a government bent on controlling Americans as if they were viral intruders. With the U.S. staggering through a kind of national Katrina—Chinatown a smoky ruin, Atlanta evacuated, Houston blown up—he must fight both the system and the contagion to save his life and love.”

More about American Fever:


American Fever is presented in blog format, with live links furnished on its website and in ebook versions. The site contains a gallery of art contributed by creative souls around the world.

American Fever’s introduction will get you started. Then please send us your address or e-location and we’ll send a paperback or an ebook for your informed pleasure.

Author Bio:


Peter Christian Hall is a writer and filmmaker who was raised in upstate New York and now lives in New York City. He has written for Rolling Stone, the Village Voice, the New York TimesReuters.com, and The Big Money and served as executive editor at Financial World.
Hall wrote, produced, and directed Delinquent, a feature film (with an original score from Gang of Four) that the Los Angeles Times called “a highly accomplished work [that] marks a stunning feature debut for writer-director Peter Hall, who never makes a false move as he builds suspense right from the start.”

Hall’s latest article, at Reuters.com, challenges the U.S. government’s efforts to suppress H5N1 avian flu-transmission research.

Coming December 1, 2011: “Chill Run” by Russell Brooks, Thriller Author

What’s Chill Run?


You know a publicity stunt has backfired when someone dies.
“Starving author Eddie Barrow, Jr, will do anything to get a book deal with a NYC publisher. Even if it means getting caught by the media while engaging in S&M with a female celebrity as a publicity stunt. What Eddie gets instead are details of a billion dollar fraud scheme from a suicidal client who’s fatally shot minutes later. Now on the run from the law and the killers, Eddie seeks help from two unlikely friends—an alcoholic and a dominatrix. With few resources, Eddie races to clear his name, expose the fraud scheme, and expose the killers before he becomes their next victim.”
