AND HERE IS SOME INFORMATION ABOUT THE HANDSOME BEARDED AUTHORS ABOVE AND A BOOK THEY WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rick Reed
The R is for romance… Rick R. Reed is all about exploring the romantic entanglements of gay men in contemporary, realistic settings. While his stories often contain elements of suspense, mystery and the paranormal, his focus ultimately returns to the power of love. He is the author of dozens of published novels, novellas, and short stories. He is a three-time EPIC eBook Award winner (for Caregiver, Orientation and The Blue Moon Cafe). He is also a Rainbow Award Winner for both Caregiver and Raining Men. Lambda Literary Review has called him, “a writer that doesn’t disappoint.” Rick lives in Seattle with his husband and a very spoiled Boston terrier. He is forever “at work on another novel.” Take a look at his blog to get the latest on his work and his life!

Here is one of his latest books, The Perils of Intimacy!

Jimmy and Marc make an adorable couple. Jimmy’s kindness and clean-cut cuteness radiate out of him like light. Marc, although a bit older, complements Jimmy with his humor and his openness to love.

But between them, a dark secret lurks, one with the power to destroy.

See, when Marc believes he’s meeting Jimmy for the first time in the diner where he works, he’s wrong.

Marc has no recollection of their original encounter because the wholesome Jimmy of today couldn’t be more different than he was two years ago. Back then, Jimmy sported multiple piercings, long bleached dreadlocks, and facial hair. He was painfully skinny—and a meth addict. The drug transformed him into a different person—a lying, conniving thief who robbed Mark blind during their one-night stand.

Marc doesn’t associate the memory of a hookup gone horribly wrong with this fresh-faced, smiling twentysomething… but Jimmy knows. As they begin a dance of love and attraction, will Jimmy be brave enough to reveal the truth? And if he does, will Marc be able to forgive him? Can he see Jimmy for the man he is now and not the addict he was? The answers will depend on whether true love holds enough light to shine through the darkness of past mistakes.

Rob Damon
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: reading, film, weight training, and learning all he can about people – what makes them tick, what motivates them. His latest novel – Tough Love Buddy – is a character driven story about a young man learning to give up on running away from his responsibilities after meeting a slightly older, more grounded man with whom he develops feelings.

This is his new novel Tough Love Buddy!

After beating a man unconscious on a regretful night out in his home town, Dale Mitchell goes on the run. Landing a job on a building site in London, Dale hopes to put his past behind him. But there he meets Jake – a man with his own dark past.

As their friendship blossoms into an intimate and sometimes volatile relationship, Dale learns the value of taking responsibility for his actions.

But is he willing to continue the relationship when he finds out the dark secret Jake is hiding?

Sequel to Planting His Dream

Planting Dreams: Book Two

Love can grow in even the harshest conditions.

Life has been a struggle for Lachlan Buttar ever since his mother passed away and left him unprepared to take care of himself. He’s gone from homeless to staying with a local minister, but it soon becomes clear he will be better off, and safer, on his own. Fortunately Foster and Javi agree to take Lachlan in and offer him a real home on their dairy farm.

It’s there that Lachlan meets another of the workers, local farmer Abe Armitage. Though the attraction between them is instant, Abe refuses to act on it until Lachlan returns his interest. By then, strong feelings have taken root, and a passionate romance quickly blossoms. But both men carry baggage that could crush any chance of happiness together, particularly since Lachlan witnessed a crime, and there are those who will do anything to make sure he cannot reveal what he’s seen.

Jacob Flores
Gay romance that is sinfully charming Jacob Z. Flores lives a double life. During the day, he is a respected college English professor and mid-level administrator. At night and during his summer vacation, he loosens the tie and tosses aside the trendy sports coat to write man on man fiction, where the hardass assessor of freshmen level composition turns his attention to the firm posteriors and other rigid appendages of the characters in his fictional world. Summers in Provincetown, Massachusetts, provide Jacob with inspiration for his fiction. The abundance of barely clothed man flesh and daily debauchery stimulates his personal muse. When he isn’t stroking the keyboard, Jacob spends time with his daughter. They both represent a bright blue blip in an otherwise predominantly red swath in south Texas.

Here is the book he thought was right for this post, When Love Gets Hairy!

Provincetown: Book Three

As vain as he is beautiful, Nino Santos happily lives life waiting for the next ferry full of fairies to bring him new conquests. As long as they aren’t hirsute, he’s all in. So he’s shocked to wake up after a beach party he cannot remember with a hairy naked man lying next to him.

Teddy Miller doesn’t remember the “Bear Week” party either, much less the Abercrombie & Fitch model wannabe next to him. Teddy doesn’t give two cents about appearances, but guys like Abercrombie don’t return the favor. That’s why he prefers men with extra fur and padding over carbon copy clones of perfection—a type of man Teddy is far too familiar with.

When Nino and Teddy glimpse each other the next morning, it’s loathing at first sight. Instead of exchanging phone numbers, they exchange insults and vow never to see each other again. In Provincetown, however, escaping a trick best forgotten isn’t easy. Mutual friends and chance circumstances keep Nino and Teddy in each other’s orbit. But are they fighting each other or the attraction growing between them? The answer lies amid Provincetown’s windswept dunes and the night neither of them can recall.

Jamie Fessenden
Jamie Fessenden is an author of gay fiction in many genres. Most involve romance, because he believes everyone deserves to find love, but after that anything goes: contemporary, science fiction, historical, paranormal, mystery, or whatever else strikes his fantasy. Jamie Fessenden set out to be a writer in junior high school. He published a couple short pieces in his high school’s literary magazine and had another story place in the top 100 in a national contest, but it wasn’t until he met his partner, Erich, almost twenty years later, that he began writing again in earnest. With Erich alternately inspiring and goading him, Jamie wrote several screenplays and directed a few of them as micro-budget independent films. He then began writing novels and published his first novella in 2010. After nine years together, Jamie and Erich have married and purchased a house together in the wilds of Raymond, New Hampshire, where there are no street lights, turkeys and deer wander through their yard, and coyotes serenade them on a nightly basis. Jamie recently left his “day job” as a tech support analyst to be a full-time writer.

Check out his book, Murderous Requiem (The Brethren Book 1)

Jeremy Spencer never imagined the occult order he and his boyfriend, Bowyn, started as a joke in college would become an international organization with hundreds of followers. Now a professor with expertise in Renaissance music, Jeremy is drawn back into the world of free love and ceremonial magick. The old jealousies and hurt that separated him from Bowyn eight years ago no longer seem significant.

Then Jeremy begins to wonder if the centuries-old score he’s been asked to transcribe hides something sinister. With each stanza, local birds flock to the old mansion, a mysterious fog descends upon the grounds, and bats swarm the temple dome. During a séance, the group receives a cryptic warning from the spirit realm. And as the music’s performance draws nearer, Jeremy realizes it may hold the key to incredible power—power somebody is willing to kill for.

I Love My Life! (Again)

I love my life. I do. Again!

I started so many Facebook posts with how much I loved my life and people would comment and ask me how it is that I can stay so happy. Many it was because I surrounded my life with Sangha.

Now in Buddhism, Sangha refers primarily to, in the words of monk Thich Nhat Hanh, as “…a community of friends practicing the dharma together in order to bring about and to maintain awareness….” What it has come to mean to me, through my studies and through my life, as like-minded community. People who believe as I do so that when I forget what I believe in, they’re there to remind me. And my job is to do the same for them.

For some reason I lost my Sangha. I lost those people who reminded me to be what I believe in. Circumstances had a lot to do with it. My job changed my schedule so I could no longer practice my Spiritual beliefs with my like-minded community. Then there was the Evil Team Leader who wanted nothing more than to make me miserable. You often spend more waking hours with those you work with than those that you love and chose to spend your life with, so that was hard! My supervisor was completely indifferent to what was going on, so that made it even worse.

The love of my life is a loner. He is not a social creature. He picks his companions and his friends with great thought and forethought. Once you’re in his Circle (his Sangha) then he will die for you. But R also still need an incredible amount of alone time. Me? I am a very social person and need lots of time with people.

Circumstances took them away. A lot of them have died. I have lost so many friends. Cancer. Aneurysms. AIDS. Strokes. And those friendships that had to end because they had gone to a stage where they were causing more harm than good.

I let it all get to me. My community was pretty much gone.

It was around this time that I decided to do my one year blog called 365 Days of Silver….

Elizabeth North, one of my True Guides and Gurus, noted that she found it…interesting…that I chose that year to write my blog about finding the Silver Lining in every day. My response was that I think it was how I survived that year! She thought that was a good answer.

Then last year was just as difficult. I just didn’t have the energy to do the blog again. However, something was happening. I was opening myself up again to the possibilities of that wonderful life I’ve led for so many years.

And then it happened! Thank you Universe!

I got a new supervisor. I lady I really love and who believes greatly and mostly as I do. A woman who one day, when I was bitching and complaining and in near tears about what the Evil Team Leader was doing to me, stopped me dead and said, “Ben! You’ve got to stop! You can’t let him do this to you! This is killing you! I mean that! If you do not change this you are going to die. Do not let him have this power over you!”

I was furious! I stomped away. I was so angry! What I wanted to know was why she, and the previous supervisor, and the manager, let him get away with the sh*t he was doing to me! What did they mean by “let him have power over me?” He did have power over me! He was the team leader! He could do all kinds of stuff to me and I had no choice!

But then…. I don’t know how to explain it…. Then something happened.

Buddhism would call it a shining moment of Enlightenment.

So I went to her, about ten minutes after her comment, and we went to her office, and I asked her what she meant. I told her that he did have power over me. I asked why everyone let him get away with it. And then she told me a story of how a very similar thing had happened to her. A negative evil person threatened her well-being. And this is what she did….

She killed her “Evil Team Leader” with Kindness.

No matter how bad this Negative Person was in her life, she started every day by saying to her, “Good morning! How are you today?” And things like, “How was your evening?” “How was your weekend?” “Did you have a good time?”

And this person would snarl and snap and…. Then run out of energy. Because what does a Negative Person have to say to all of this?

And I thought, I know this! I know all of this! What she is saying is what I’ve done for years! But then thing was…I wasn’t doing it. Not anymore. I was letting the Evil Team Leader have control over my life! I was letting him get to me! I would say, “Why are you all letting him get away with this????” But the thing was, why was I letting him get away with it?

This is what I forgot….

Buddhism (and I really am not a Buddhist–not really) teaches what are called Noble Truths.

The First Noble Truth is that, “Life is Suffering.”

Seems pretty harsh, huh? Until we understand this Eastern Thought that is. What it means is, is that life is filled with the bad as well as the good…. And that leads to….

The Second Noble Truth.

And basically what that is, is that “We are the cause of that suffering.” Whoa! Even harsher? Until we understand this Eastern Thought that is. What it means is, is that how suffering is not caused by the rough turn of events (which happens and will always happen at one time or another) but by our reaction to those turns of events!

In other words…. Shit happens. Stuff we don’t like. So we have a choice! And our choice is how we react to that shit that happens! Because we can have bad stuff happen and the wallow in it…or we can find Silver Linings. We can say, “Okay…yeah…that sucks.” Losing our job sucks. Losing a lover sucks. Death sucks. Disease sucks. A house burning down sucks. Losing that promotion sucks–that we heartily deserved! It sucks!

Shit happens!

Luckily I have a choice! I have a choice of how I am going to react to that kaka! So I wallow in it? Or do I take it as a fact of life and move on? Do I pick it up and spread it all over me or do I acknowledge that, yes, it sucks and I don’t like it and don’t have to be happy about it. But I have to move on.
Because experience in this life of mine has shown me this!

It does get better. It always does.

I look back at my life and I see some real and horrible lows. But I also see times that were shining wondrous Silver! And every single time I have reminded myself that this horrible thing WILL indeed pass, it gets easier. It does! I have proof! Because in my life it has always gotten better!

Now forearmed with this knowledge I can bear anything! Because I know it will get better!

And here is what else has happened!

OMGosh!!!

The Evil Team Leader!

He is losing all control! I have taken my power back! And this is how I did it!

No matter what that f*cker does to me? Why I say, “Okay! Whatever you say boss!” He gives me some horrible job to do that he knows that I hate and will ruin my day and…. I do it and while I am doing it I dance around and smile and sing songs like….

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright, bright
Sun-Shiny day.

And it kills him! Because what is he going to do about it? The answer? There is nothing he can do! Bit by bit, he is losing all control.

Each morning I say, “Hey! How are you this find morning? Did you have a nice evening/weekend? Hope you had a good time!”

And what can he say? I’ve put it all in his court!

And everyone is watching him. And they’re laughing at him. And everything is backfiring on him. And indifferent managers are paying attention. And they don’t even see that they are doing it…but they are supporting me! And they are laughing at him. And he tries to get me into trouble and nothing happens. They’re starting to blow him off!

Here is another VERY important thing my supervisor and I discussed. I told her that I truly believed that the ETL was in my life for a reason. That there was a lesson I had to learn. And that if I didn’t learn it, he was going to be thrown into my life over and over again until I learned it. He might have a different name and come in a different body. But he was going to be there. If I won the lottery and could write full time, there was going to be that Evil Person who wanted to tear me down. But I didn’t know what I was supposed to learn!

And now I am seeing it! OMGOSH! I am seeing it clearly! I am seeing all the obstacles in my way!

There will be obstacles in my path for the rest of my life. I can see around and moan and complain and tell everyone how bad my life is. Or I can see it as something that will pass and I will get through it. Because I have before. And I have had Evil People in my life before! What did I do? Why for goodness sake! I killed them with kindness! I’ve done it before! How did I forget???

Do I think that the Evil Team Leader had been won over and my problems there are done with? Heck no! But now I have finally reached that point where things are getting better–just as they have before. The rocky road is leveling out. And I am in many ways responsible for that.

I believe that what we think about, we bring about. And when I spent all my hours and days thinking about how horrible this stuff was? Why I was thinking about it! And what I thought about…I brought more of into my life! The Universal Law of Attraction doesn’t perceive anything. It is like gravity. The Law of Attraction is sending back to me what I am thinking about. And if I think about Good, and stop DWELLING one The Evil Team Leader and What He Is Doing To Me, then that Law will stop sending that stuff to me. When I think LovE, then LOVE will come back to me!

And it is! That’s a very good thing for a romance writer. Because how can I write about love when I am not feeling love?

I did write. But it was difficult. And what I was writing was stories about men who were coming though horrible stuff! For instance, everything that Wyatt went through in Winter Heart? Why it was stuff I went through! How could I write light loving happy laughing love stories when I was going through all I was going through. On the other hand, writing that stuff helped me work through it.

Now? Oh my gosh! I am writing writing writing! All the time! I am writing more than I have in years! It is pouring out of me! And it is happy stuff! Light and bright and Happily Every After Stuff!

And bit by bit, I am getting it all again! I am loving my life again.

No wait….

I am remembering to Love My Life again! And my focus is on Love! And what I am thinking about…I am bringing about!

And I am leaping! I am leaping and knowing and trusting that the Net Will Appear. It is appearing! Every day!

Thank You Universe for bringing that supervisor to me that has so helped me turned my life around. And I am so thankful that I started wanting the right thing. I started remembering what I believed! And FAST she came right to me! FAST!

I love my life! And I know everything is going to start falling into place again.

I am going to imagine every dream I have coming true for me. I am going to believe. I already am believing it. It’s happening!

And I know this. When the bad stuff happens again? If it does? Well it will pass! I can chose how I react to it.

In the meantime? Look out Universe! Because Ben is getting his groove back.

Watch out! You aren’t going to believe what I’ve got up my sleeve.

I am going to knock you out!

Want to join me?

Namasté!

And the Winners for the “Blue” Contest Are….

I want to thank everyone who entered my contest for Blue. I hope you think it was a fun idea. I did! Maybe I will do one for Red? Just because I got such ingenious submissions? And gosh, oh, gosh it was hard to decide! I mean I got some great ones!

The ones I liked the best were the ones that were somehow personal, a real favorite thing of the submitter, or came with a neat explanation or a personal touch. One person even made a collage of all my book covers that had the color blue in them and for some reason I am not sure of, it turns out there are quite a few of them.

One submitter wrote something lovely and I loved her ideas…but the post for the contest did say you have to follow the rules and the rules were asking for pictures, so I couldn’t chose her.

Two people were imaginative enough to submit videos, one that was personally made and the other because it in a way fit the theme. But in the end I felt I had to go with actual pictures.

Again it was killer choosing only five and in the end I went with five and a special additional one! And he has every single book I have written so I didn’t have to give him a prize! LOL! But I sure wanted people to see it! Thank goodness I didn’t have to go with just one!

And so the winners are, not in order….

A Doctor Who teapot from Serena S. She was the very first person to submit, she loves Doctor Who, so it said something about her, and finally my husband loves Doctor all of his life. He goes way back, long before the current series, and in fact it took him a little while to warm up with it because he loved the camp and the bad costumes and everything else about it! I figured if the Doctor Who teapot wasn’t one of the winners, I might be sleeping on the couch! LOL!

Next was from Wendy and it is her granddaughter. This one really got me because she was sharing something very personal! And the picture is quite magickal. I had to go with it!

Next…it is the car of Kat’s dreams. “The car I always wanted, a ’56 Chevy Nomad!” This made it magickally personal and I found even I was in love with the car!

And then comes a lovely picture from Terri of two young men underwater kissing and young love makes my heart soar! Reminds me of my story Someday from my anthology A More Perfect Union. She says of her picture, “Nice things happen in Blue water!” So sweet!

And how could I not chose a penis? I am a gay man. What’s more I am a gay man who is fascinated with Rome and Greece and have been for as long as I can remember. And I love blue glass. So when Natalie submitted this “A rare c. 1800 Bristol blue glass antique phallus,.” why that was it! “The Georgian antique phallic model resembles the exaggerated shape of the Imperial Roman examples that were being found contemporaneously in the excavations of Herculaneum and Pompeii. The antique penis is 11″ long”. Eleven inches? I mean, I’m not a size queen! But I do love their husbands!

And finally, there is Chris’s collage of my book covers! He doesn’t win because he is the runner up (and he already has all my books) but with all the work he obviously spent a long time on this, I had to share it! Thank you Chris! You are wonderful!

This winners get a copy of Blue or if they already have it, anything from my backlog. Congrats!

Thanks to all who submitted including Tarri, Oor, JoEllen, Nell (loved your bird story), Give a Rose (what a green house!), Lynn, Patricia, Geoffrey, Angela (if there was one more winner, it would have been you!), Marinieves, Tanja (loved your Delft Blue Porcelain and your reason for submitting it!), Sarajane, Sula, Chris, Andrea, Josie, Katie and Noah.

And now I want to show you a variety of other pictures that were submitted. There were so many nice ones! What did I get myself into here! Having to turn down some of these? OMGosh!

Peace and love!
BG “Ben” Thomas

It’s Furry Friday…and Today It’s Couples!

So today’s theme is bearded couples. Because if one man with a beard is hot and beautiful…then two are twice as good! And I think there are some incredibly beautiful sexy gorgeous men…and the love makes it even better. And because a few of you weren’t happy that there was no voting last week, I brought that back. At least for today! Let me know what you think!

Ciao!

UNTETHERED

Determined to help the war effort, Frankie Norris joins the US Air Force in 1943. Braving intimidating drill sergeants and unending marches, Frankie struggles to hide his secret—he’s queer. But having passed basic training, he’s not going to risk an undesirable discharge or any of his fellow recruits finding out. Then he receives word that he’s been granted a position flying the plane he loves, the P-51 Mustang.

But as Frankie finds his wings in the sky, feelings of isolation may keep him grounded. Slowly making friends among his squadron, Frankie realizes he may not be as alone or as abnormal as he thinks. Other queer men have formed a community in the Armed Forces to offer support. Then Frankie meets his crew chief, Jim Morrow. Initially antagonistic, they slowly become friends and a mutual attraction develops as they join the Eighth Air Force in Britain. Confessing their feelings, snatching what time they can together, and wary of discovery, Frankie and Jim are there for each other through dangerous missions and the loss of friends. It’s a long war with enemies on both sides. All they can hope for is to survive long enough for a chance at something more.

LOFTY DREAMS OF EARTHBOUND MEN

On the night of the summer solstice, Obadai Bashim encounters Jules Sterling, a young engineering sage. Jules is on the run from a ripper, an assassin of the Theocracy who has already killed his master. Open atrocities by rippers are unusual in County Isleshire, where freedom and acceptance reign over prejudice.

However, political instability between the Five Kingdoms and the Divine Theocracy has set the theocrats on a mission to crown religious doctrine over science, and the Sage’s Guild is number one on their eradication list. If Obadai helps, he’ll have a price on his head too, but he can’t abandon Jules.

Escaping the ripper’s clutches is not enough. Jules has a mission of his own: to repair a faulty airship inn about to crash into the fortified township of Dunbruth. Luckily, Obadai has a few magickal secrets up his sleeve.
