laspell_vol2-gay_iconsize

A couple of updates from my publisher that should be putting out my story “Jailbreak” here in the next couple of months.  Keep an eye out for an announcement about the release of LIKE A SPELL: WATER.

In the meantime, LIKE A SPELL: FIRE has been released!  The second anthology of the quartet, this is all M/M erotica.

Circlet Press has also announced calls for two new anthologies.  Since they came out far enough after my listing for anthology calls, I decided to just post them here.

* – I will very rarely post an anthology that doesn’t pay.  Neos Alexandria I make an exception for.  All their money goes to supporting various charities, including themselves.  They are a religious organization dedicated to bringing back knowledge of the old gods.

 

Also, they published my first story.  So I’m slightly biased.
