Katrdeshtr’s Redemption, The Night Cat, Book 1 (Genre: vampire fiction, gay themes)

Description: “Ancient, brutal beauty, Katrdeshtr the Night Cat, Russian vampire and incorrigible mischief maker turns to old pleasures to relieve his eternal boredom, yet when his sometimes partner finds a new love, satisfaction takes on new meaning. This change of events can only end in someone’s eternal death and Kat doesn’t intend for it to be him!”

The House of Doom, Dreams and Desire (Genre: psychological erotica, gay fantasy)

Description: “John Jones believed himself the most enlightened of gay men. Professional, well read and boyishly handsome despite his age, he also believed himself open-minded, tolerant and devoid of vice. Yet he cannot resist the temptation of “The House”, a computer generated environment where one can explore their subconscious in a safe environment. Safe except for the darkness you bring with you. A mind and gender bending fantasy tale!

The Coat: Secrets of a Hatcheck Boy (Genre: contemporary gay fiction)

Description: “When Robin, a young university student, saves the life of a beautiful youth, he finds he’s made a devoted friend. But without memory and voice, the newly named Angel is a mystery, occasionally exasperating with his child-like qualities yet with touches of darkness that make Robin wonder what kind of being he’s really taken in.”

Night Shift (contemporary fiction, gay drama)

Description: “Working the night shift to get away from a troubled home, Jamie endures the motley crew, aimlessly drifting along until Derrik, a mysterious new co-worker, arrives and transforms his life. Jamie finds himself falling for Derrik, but the older man harbors a secret that threatens to come between them.”

Songs of the Universal Vagabond (non-fiction, collected flash memoirs)

Description: “From dropping the Christmas goose in Berlin, Germany to surviving tornadoes in Alabama, and recounting the stories of WW2 survivors, Red Haircrow also takes the reader into the oral tradition of storytelling among their Native American friends and family, and how life is as a “two spirit” individual.”

An excerpt can be found at their GLBT Bookshelf website, The Journey of Red Haircrow. http://bookworld.editme.com/The-Agony-of-Joy

Description: “Former model turned actor Adrian Lee can barely list age range ’23-29′ on his resumé anymore nor stand his life of empty social events and appearances, meaningless roles and casual partners. When he meets Alexander Skizetsky by clever arrangement of his agent, the enigmatic yet infinitely attractive Russian kindles a little light of hope in his aching heart. Yet even the beginnings of a romance beyond his wildest dreams cannot assuage a life spiraling out of control.

The long estrangement from his devout Irish parents and family and the dark secrets they all share combine to drive him to the brink of despair though Lexx is determined to stay by his side. After locking away his own memories of betrayal and loss, Lexx had decided never to love again but something in Adrian spurs the noblest intentions of his formerly jaded heart. Returning in pilgrimage to his homeland, he brings Adrian along on a journey of rebirth, revelation and redemption.”

Reviews:

   “Haircrow’s magnificent command of language, skill in showing events using a minimum of words had me spellbound from beginning to end.” –Rainbow Reviews

    “…Beautifully written, the story took me away with the almost poetic way that it is written…” –The Romance Reviews

   “A poignant ending and a gift for expressive language and imagery are the hallmarks of this brief but deeply romantic tale. It reaches the emotions of lovers of a good romance and tugs at the heartstrings.” –Top2Bottom Reviews
