Some valuables are missing, but even more devastating for Trevor is items of little monetary value but which mean the world to Trevor have been damaged. Trevor finds it hard to cope with what has happened and if it wasn’t for the support of his friend, Eric, he doesn’t know what he would do. Thanks to the break-in, and Eric, Trevor learns which of his possessions he truly treasures.

New release! Gay contemporary short, Festivities

Filed under: website,writing — Stevie Woods @ 4:31 pm

Released today from Torquere Press: Festivities, a Christmas/New Year romance.

BLURB:  Joel invites his friend Graham to spend the Christmas holiday period with him, and he plans that by the time New Year arrives they’ll be more than just friends. As New Year’s Eve dawns Graham wakes with a new determination. The whole week with Joel had been wonderful and Graham is not going to let the day pass without admitting his feelings to Joel. Will the New Year really be ‘new’ for them?

SHORT EXCERPT:  It had been a surprise when Joel had invited Graham to come and stay with him for the holiday period. Joel decided to hold a party on Christmas Eve and one again on New Year’s Eve and wanted Graham to stay with him in the meantime. At first Graham tried to beg off, not that he wanted to, but he thought Joel was probably just being polite in asking him as Joel knew he had no family to spend the time with.

“Thanks, Joel, but it’s not necessary. I would be happy to come to both of your parties, but I wouldn’t want to impose for the whole week.”

“Impose? I wouldn’t ask you if I didn’t want the company, Graham.” Joel stepped closer, his voice lowering, “Would you like to spend the holidays with me?”

Suppressing a shiver at the tone of Joel’s voice, Graham smiled and nodding. “Yeah, sure. It would be fun.”

“Yes, it will.” Joel grinned. “It’ll be good, you’ll see. In fact, I’ll let all the usual suspects know that I’m declaring open house, just to make sure you have fun.”

“Oh Lord, the things I let myself in for.”

“Right, first point of order, getting stocked up. My cupboard is bare and my guests are a thirsty bunch.”

“Oh, so I have to help with the groceries as well now. Your way to make me pay for my keep?”

“Hadn’t thought of that! Now I’m going to have to think of suitable payment and a good way to collect.”

Graham glanced at Joel and was glad that his friend couldn’t read his mind as he thought of a perfect way to pay Joel for his hospitality. He dropped his eyes quickly because, though Joel couldn’t read his mind, Graham was afraid that his friend could perhaps read the emotion in his eyes.

Throw Me a Bone, a new Contemporary short story has been released by Torquere Press:

BLURB:  Malcolm is shocked and hurt when he realizes Guy is seeing another man. He believed they were happy and he was waiting, not always patiently, for the time they could move in together. Guy has no idea that Malcolm knows about the other man and Malcolm is trying to decide what he should do. He dreads giving up the man he loves, but doesn’t believe he can possibly share him with someone else.

Then Guy changes their plans at the last minute and invites Malcolm to his place for dinner, informing Malcolm he has something to tell him. Malcolm fears what that might be, but can he force Guy to be honest with him?

About the book

When Richard met Phillip, he found someone who did everything humanly possibly to make his life better and easier — platonically, of course. The problem was, the longer they were friends, the better a person Phillip proved to be and, in the end, the worse Richard treated him. Anything to avoid the terrible truth. If Phillip weren’t so good and kind and decent, maybe Richard could keep it up, but Richard — terrible truth and all — is worthy of Phillip’s kindness. If he could just be honest about his feelings, he’d be worthy of so much more.

New Release – Conversations!

siplogoJust released from Torquere Press, my new Contemporary short story, CONVERSATIONS!

BLURB:   Craig has known John for a long time. They are friends, close friends, but then Craig poses the question that perhaps they are closer than either of them had realized. Deciding to test the theory they got out on a date. After dinner and a trip back to John’s place, one thing leads to another, and another. Soon they’re swapping fantasies. Which one will they try first?

Here’s a little taste:

The Question

“Hey, Craig,” John said as he pulled up a chair at his friend’s table. He always knew he could find Craig in Pop’s Coffee Shop around five-thirty most evenings, but certainly on a Friday.

Craig looked up from his book and smiled. “Hey, John.”

“What’re ya doin’?”

“Reading.”

“Yeah, but reading what?”

“The history of…” Craig paused, sighed and added, “John, do you really want to know or is this just your usual preamble?”

“Usual preamble?” John frowned. Did he have a usual preamble?

“You want us to spend the evening together and you track me down in here, make small talk before you ask me out for a meal. Then later we go back to your place and either watch a DVD or play a game of poker or whatever.”

“Ah.” John smiled. “So, Craig?”

“So… What?”

“Which will it be? Meal followed by DVD or a game of poker?”

Craig grinned and shook his head. “Okay, John, either or both.” Craig stuffed his book back into his bag and then downed the rest of his coffee. Still holding the cup, Craig raised his eyes, narrowing them as he asked, “John, are we… dating?”

TwistsTurnsCover Kinda embarrassed to realise I forgot to announce my latest release which was actually on 9th May!

TWISTS AND TURNS was the sequel to my popular fantasy Sip, THE WRONG PATH, released some time ago by Torquere Press.

BLURB:

Zeke and Crispin, who met in Stevie Woods’ story, The Wrong Path, are surprised to learn that the accident that brought them together was no accident. Determined to get to the bottom of things, Crispin takes Zeke into town to meet with Zeke’s father. Zeke has more than information on his mind; he needs to tell his father that he’s no longer interested in a marriage of convenience. Will Zeke and Crispin be able to make a life together, or will a powerful, determined man be able to interfere with fate?

Two new contracts!

TorquereYep, two new acceptances, just waiting for the contracts to arrive in the post 🙂

It never gets old, that rush of excitement when a work is accepted for publication!

The first submission was a Sip, a short story line at Torquere Press, a contemporary tale of one man taking a leap of faith, hoping his friend will be there to catch him.

The second submission is a novella, set in a fantasy alternative world, which tells the story of a son, Willem, who goes searching for his missing father, a famous explorer, accompanied only by a man estranged from his father years earlier.  Willem has more to learn than the whereabouts of his father.

I have no idea at all yet about publication dates etc.  I will update as and when I learn more.

New Release!

My short story, Tutelary, is due for release day from Torquere Press. I have been waiting for a date for a while and when it came it was sudden 🙂

Here’s a short excerpt:

Matthias sat on the side of the bed just watching Daniel sleep. The sheet had slid down as far as his stomach and it took all Matthias’ willpower not to reach out and caress the honey-colored skin. Daniel always was a rough sleeper, tossing and turning and occasionally kicking Matthias’ legs. Matthias didn’t care; just being able to sleep beside Daniel had been a blessing for him. Making love with him had been miraculous. Tears pricked at his eyes at the thought that perhaps never again…

“Matt?” Daniel said sleepily, rubbing at his eyes. He glanced at the window seeing it was hardly light yet. “Why are you sitting there?” He smiled, patting the mattress next to him. “It’s much nicer in here with me.”

“I…I need to talk with you and, if I was in there with you, we wouldn’t talk.”

Daniel laughed, “Heck no. Come on we can talk later, there’s a lot better things you can do with that lovely mouth of yours.”

“Danny, please.”

Daniel’s smile faded as he finally understood that Matt was serious about wanting to talk. “Sure, whatever.” He frowned, “Matt, why do I get the feeling I’m not going to like this?”

Matthias sighed and got to his feet. He walked toward the window, lifted a slat and looked outside. He was trying to delay the inevitable; he didn’t want to say what he had to, but he knew it was a futile exercise and the delay was only making Daniel more anxious, he could feel it.

Turning back, he said bluntly, “I have to leave, Daniel, and…”

“Leave? Why? How long for?” Daniel threw the covers back and swung his legs over the side of the bed so he was sitting facing Matt.

“I am so sorry, Danny,” Matthias said taking a step forward and forcing himself to stop. “I have to leave very soon, and I won’t be coming back.” As he watched the emotions flicker across Daniel’s expressive face, Matthias felt his stomach twist and the ache in his heart felt too great to bear.
