Hooray, hooray, it’s the First of May!

It’s the day we’ve been looking forward to and working towards for such a long time – release day for our two new titles.

A PRIDE OF POPPIES is our long-awaited anthology of modern GLBTQI fiction of the Great War, all the proceeds of which will be donated to The Royal British Legion to assist in their excellent work with returned service people. Ten authors have contributed to this project, and our editor Julie has worked tirelessly to bring the project to fruition; we’re (we believe justifiably!) extremely proud of the finished result, and we’re absolutely sure you’re going to love it!

The authors include: Julie Bozza; Barry Brennessel; Charlie Cochrane; Sam Evans; Lou Faulkner; Adam Fitzroy; Wendy C. Fries; Z. McAspurren; Eleanor Musgrove; and Jay Lewis Taylor.

Alongside that, we are delighted to be bringing you another standout historical novel from Jay Lewis Taylor: THE PEACOCK’S EYE is a love story with a richly detailed background of the Elizabethan theatre and the complex political climate of a time in which nothing could ever truly be considered safe or certain. In such a world, trust will always be elusive – and love, perhaps, even more so. This is definitely a book to lose yourself in, and forget about the twenty-first century for a while!

We’re looking forward enormously to meeting those of you who are going to be joining us at our Queer Company event in Oxford next weekend. If anyone is still undecided, there are a few places left and just enough time to secure them – but registrations must close on Sunday 3 May – so register now, and don’t miss out on this ‘small but beautifully formed’ gathering for readers and writers in the Quiltbag genre!
