New gay musical needs help

Hi all, just wanted to share with you a Kickstarter event for FACING EAST, a new LGBT musical trying to put on a concert in London. The show is described as “a dramatic new musical, follows an upstanding Mormon couple facing the suicide of their gay son. Help us bring it to London!”

Crowd-funding makes big news when Hollywood actors ask for hundreds of thousands of bucks, but it’s most powerful when a few people help out needy artists. Check out the Kickstarter page here.

Love at Sixth Sight update

Love_at_Sixth_Sight_400x600Just a quick update on my latest book, Love At Sixth Sight. This M/M novella is now available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble in both ebook and paperback editions.

Blurb: After a break-up and a near death experience, down on his luck Harris starts having visions of people’s soul mates. With his unexpected skills, Harris plays matchmaker, but can he persevere through daunting hallucinations and the inability to see his own true love?

Love at Sixth Sight published

Love at Sixth Sight, my latest ebook is now available at JMS Books. As always, JMS offers it exclusively at a 20 % discount for one week until it’s released on major retailers like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, etc.

Love_at_Sixth_Sight_400x600After Harris breaks up with his cheating boyfriend, he plans to stop by the liquor store and spend the evening drowning his sorrows in a bottle of vodka. Instead, he finds himself face to face with an armed robber and he’s shot in the head.

When Harris finally comes to after a coma, he doesn’t just have medical bills and head trauma to deal with — he has strange visions whenever he touches someone. He finds a common thread in the visions, and believes he’s psychically seeing other people’s soul mates. His friends can’t agree on whether the bullet that pierced his brain caused him to lose his mind, or gave him a miraculous ability.

Harris’ new “gift” turns him into a local celebrity, though it comes with consequences in the form of sickness and delusions. Will Harris be able to help himself and his friends find true love, or are they doomed to end up with a string of Mr. Wrongs? And how long can Harris hold out before his battered brain starts to tear his life apart?

Check it out here at JMS Books.

On free ebook

Hey gang, a quick post here to let you know that during the month of November, my LGBT YA horror ebook Camp Carnage is available completely free over at Amazon.

Camp Carnage front coverBlurb: In the summer of 1986, Billy Collins is sent to his own personal Hell – summer camp. The remote Camp Genesis offers desperate parents a place to “straighten” out their gay teenagers with the help of the puritanical Katherine Creevey.

Besides the typical horsing around, campfire tales and summer games, the Genesis program forces gay and questioning teens into humiliating gender-based lessons. While Billy wants nothing more than to escape Camp Genesis, he can’t help worrying that something even more sinister is hiding just out of sight.

Unknown to Billy, two campers were murdered three years ago. Just days after Billy and the new campers arrive, people start to go missing, and it’s up to Billy and his new friend Jem to find out what’s really going on. Is a maniac on the loose? Is history repeating itself? One thing’s for sure – at Camp Genesis, you have to fight to survive…

On Inkshares Horror Novel

Have you guys heard about this? I recently heard about a crowdfunding site called Inkshares. It’s basically Kickstarter or Indiegogo crossbred with Createspace or Lulu. It looks like a site where you can crowdfund a novel that will have an ebook and physical presence in bookstores. Unlike Kikstarter or Indiegogo where you give them thousands of dollars and then the writer keeps a percentage and has to then hire editors and distributors, Inkshares does all of that. So if a project is successfully funded at Inshares, it includes a professional manuscript editor and distributor.

I had no idea how any of this works, so I figured I’d dive in and take a look see with my current manuscript. I’m working on a 90 thousand word novel about three strangers entering the witness protection program when they accidentally thwart a serial killer. They’re relocated to a new state, but their new home brings them into contact with horrors beyond imagination.

You can find the Inkshares page, along with fun FAQs and whatnot, and back this project here are: https://www.inkshares.com/projects/horror-novel
