MatryoshkaFrontCoveronly, 72dpiSM

Calliope Press—The Matryoshka Murders calliopepress.com/the-matryoshka-murders by Kay Williams and Eileen Wyman. Kate Hennessey, age 25, gay guerrilla filmmaker, is chased by the KGB through perestroika’s Leningrad, only to find back home in New York City, SHE’S STILL THE HUNTED…Gutsy Kate Hennessey is videotaping a documentary that targets the harsh choices faced by women in Russia. Killers soon target Kate after she attends an “illegal” meeting of women, where new friend Sveta confides she fears for her life. When Sveta goes missing, Kate tapes a video interview of Sveta’s lover, 17-year-old Nadya, who has been raped by the police because she is rozovaya, gay. Kate learns to her horror when she and Nadya visit the Kafé Dusha (Café Soul), a dairy bar where gay women socialize, that Sveta may be incarcerated in a  Psychiatric Clinic for the Cure (drugs and shock therapy). Or she may be dead. More attacks against Kate make her understand that she herself is in the crosshairs. She flees Leningrad, her videos taped to her stomach, pursued by a scar-faced KGB officer and the local police who have found Sveta’s frozen body in the cemetery. Back home in NYC, Kate finds the danger overseas has come straight to her doorstep, and that nothing is what it seems. —SPONSOR—

Historical fiction from a feminist, working-class perspective. Ebisu is a women-owned house publishing quality literature: passionate, epic, and with historically accurate details. From Judy Grahn’s review of our first book: “I was completely gripped by this richly sensuous historic novel of 9th century BCE, learning so much about the peoples, Hebrew and pagan, of the region. Power relations among the three main characters unfold in cliff-hanging episodes. And of course, I love identifying with [the] lesbian character in a sacred setting.”

Raymond Rigoglioso

Gay Men of Wisdom gaymenofwisdom.com “Gay men are just like everyone else.” “Gay men are inherently different.” Both statements contain truths. In the drive for equal rights and social acceptance, so many in the LGBT movement have emphasized gay people’s commonalities with straights. But what if gay men’s differences were distinct gifts? What if gay men—and you—played important and singular roles in the human family? From a perspective seldom considered in mainstream gay—or straight—culture, Raymond L. Rigoglioso, founder of Gay Men of Wisdom, takes a fresh and open-hearted look at the critical roles that gay men play in the world. Organized around 14 Distinct Gay Male Gifts, Gay Men and The New Way Forward shows how gay men have emerged from a history dominated by victimization to become teachers for humanity. It proposes that, when we understand how we contribute to the health and vitality of society, LGBT people can make an entirely new case for equality and begin an important new era in our movement. Written as an invitation to self-discovery, Gay Men and The New Way Forward includes a self-assessment to help the reader discover how he serves and heals humanity, reinvents manhood, and frees and enriches the human spirit.

GamesMenPlayGeorgetteGouveia_WaterMusic_72dpi_rgbGeorgetteGouveia thegamesmenplay.com Water Music is journalist Georgette Gouveia’s provocative debut novel about four gay athletes and their rivalries in life and love. Psychological, profound and erotic, it’s the first in her groundbreaking series “The Games Men Play” that’s set in the impassioned world of men’s sports. A cultural writer for more than 30 years, Gouveia is the most recent in a progressive thread of women writers like Annie Proulx of Brokeback Mountain who pen novels involving gay men and sexual storylines. Her choice of gay characters has invited praise and question alike, and Gouveia discusses her motivations, public reaction and the novel’s cultural implications on her blog. “For millennia, men have shaped and defined women,” says Gouveia, who captivates readers with her sage insight into current events, bold viewpoints and buoyant wordplay. “It’s only in recent history that women have been so bold as to consider the emotional and sexual lives of men. I like to think that my characters and I meet on the bridge of the imagination and that they allow all of us, but perhaps women in particular, to explore edgier sexual situations in a compelling, thoughtful way.” Water Music readers will engage and identify with Gouveia’s complex characters and no doubt will look at the dynamics of competition—and contemporary sports figures—in a whole new light. Daniel and Dylan are the top swimmers in the world; Alex and Alí, the top tennis players. They play for God, country, family and the need to escape their troubled—and shrouded—pasts. In their quest to be the best, they also harbor a secret: Each is in love with his rival. “Water Music” narrates a tangled drama driven by power, jealousy, dominance and submission. Readers may also detect that these ancient themes mimic the games nations play. Gouveia deftly plays the metaphor against the backdrop of the modern sporting world. Told from alternating viewpoints, Water Music is a tale of how sports mirrors politics; how the past informs the present and the future; how the choices made by world leaders, our families and ourselves color our lives; and how we come to accept those choices and learn to live with loss through love. Water Music is available for purchase online at Amazon or Barnes & Noble. —SPONSOR—

IoryAllison_MermaidAndTheSailor_SMIory Allison ioryallisonblog.com The Glamour Galore Trilogy is a literary saga that takes place in the extended present in the Boston vicinity with excursions to Aruba and Provincetown. The novels are escapist froth intended to make you laugh while you ponder the human condition.

Iory is the nickname for Iorwerth, who was an eleventh-century Welsh prince, and also the name of Iory’s great uncle. It is pronounced Yori or Yorwerth.

David’s own Ask the Man Who Owns Him: The real lives of gay Masters and slaves comprises nonfiction profiles of 16 M/s couples and triads who had been together at least three years when they were interviewed; it won the National Leather Association-International’s 2010 Geoff Mains Award for Nonfiction. Boots, Bondage, and Beatings collects shorter leathersex fiction David wrote since his massive novel, Carried Away: An S/M Romance, was published in 2002 by Daedalus. In 2010, PP published The Slave Journals and Other Tales of the Old Guard, a novella and 17 short stories by Thom Magister, best known for his essay about the 1950s, “One Among Many,” in the landmark anthologyLeatherfolk edited by Mark Thompson. That was followed in 2011 by Winner Takes All, a collection of Master/slave fantasies by the prolific gay author Christopher Pierce. And in 2013 PP published two new books by Thom Magister—BIKER BAR: Bikes Beer & Boys, a playful look at the roots of the leather bar illustrated with dozens of full-color photos recreating bar milieus using suitably attired 12-inch action figures as patrons, and Leathermen Paper Dudes, a full-color book of paper dolls with a wide variety of super-butch outfits and accessories. More PP books are in the works!

Scott Wm Simmons Cover 2Scott William Simmons facebook.com/ScottWilliamSimmons is just your regular T-shirt and jeans type of guy who is waiting for scientists to find a cure for sleep. Until then Scott, who works a full-time job, spends his mornings writing. His first novel, Choices Made: A Tale of the Gwerin, came out in late 2013 and has been met with five star reviews. Scott would talk about Choices Made, Kier Liam and his friends, but it would just be spoilers. Right now Scott is halfway through writing Broken Ties, book two in the Gwerin Saga. Scott has also started a third novel, By My Lover’s Side, a stand-alone novel set in the Gwerin world, about two men looking to take over the world. Scott also is an avid painter, during the rest of his free time, and has been represented by galleries on Cape Cod and Rhode Island for the past fifteen years. But until that cure for sleep comes along Scott will be filling his studio with little bits of paper scrawled with ideas for paintings and drafts for his next series of novels.

Sibling Rivalry Press Logo_New_rgb72

Sibling Rivalry Press
siblingrivalrypress.com Founded in 2010, Sibling Rivalry Press is an independent publishing house based in Little Rock, Arkansas. Our purpose is best defined by the incomparable Adrienne Rich, who said to Michael Klein in a 1999 interview: “There’s a lot of what I would call comfortable poetry around. But then there is all this other stuff going on—which is wilder, which is bristling; it’s juicier, it’s everything that you would want. And it’s not comfortable. That’s the kind of poetry that interests me—–a field of energy. It’s intellectual and moral and political and sexual and sensual—all of that fermenting together. It can speak to people who have themselves felt like monsters and say: you are not alone, this is not monstrous. It can disturb and enrapture.” Our mission, therefore, is to publish work that disturbs and enraptures. —SPONSOR—

SpeakingOUT_BookCoverSpeaking OUT: Queer Youth in Focus rachelleleesmith.com/speakingout/ is a photographic essay that explores a wide spectrum of experiences told from the perspective of a diverse group of young people, ages fourteen to twenty-four, identifying as queer (i.e., lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning). Portraits are presented without judgment or stereotype by eliminating environmental influence with a stark white backdrop. This backdrop acts as a blank canvas, where each subject’s personal thoughts are handwritten onto the final photographic print. With more than sixty-five portraits photographed over a period of ten years, Speaking OUT provides rare insight into the passions, confusions, prejudices, joys, and sorrows felt by queer youth. Speaking OUT is published by PM Press pmpress.org/content/article.php?story=RachelleLeeSmith and Reach and Teach reachandteach.com/content/article.php/speakingout/print

TomBaker_Paperwhite_SMTom Baker TomBakerBooks.com author of Paperwhite Narcissus. It is 1966, and Tim Halladay, in his senior year at William and Mary, is in the process of discovering his true sexuality. He spends weekends living in the basement apartment of his aunt Blade’s Georgetown home. There, he uncovers the darker side of the nation’s capital, making forays into the Washington DC neighborhood of Foggy Bottom and meeting some brilliant, unforgettable men and women. Tim has known since he was thirteen that he was born a twin and that his brother, Jeffrey, died in the delivery room where they were born prematurely. Over time, Tim’s curiosity about his unknown brother has grown dangerously close to an obsession. As he deals with the recent death of his theatrical mentor and worries about being drafted after his graduation – a prospect that makes him hesitant to apply to Yale’s drama school for graduate study – his fixation on Jeffrey continues to grow. Tim’s journey takes strange and adventurous turns as he goes from Arlington National Cemetery to Williamsburg at Christmas time, and then on a South American adventure with his aunt Blade. Along the way Paperwhite Narcissus delves into an exploration of narcissism, identity, and the doppelganger theory as one young man struggles to define himself. ..

whiteCraneWhite Crane Institute facebook.com/whitecraneinstitute promotes the development of healthy Gay men and healthy Gay community. The goal is to foster the gathering and dissemination of information about the critical role sexuality and gender variation has played and continues to play in the development of cultural, spiritual and religious traditions and to provide a nurturing environment for the continuation and expansion of those explorations for the greater good of all society. Projects include: the quarterly publication White Crane, White Crane Books: Books of Gay Wisdom and Culture, the Gay Men’s Leadership Academy, the online GayWisdom.com Daily Digest, sponsorship of documentary film projects that explore Gay culture and wisdom, the biennial James White Poetry Prize, the OutWrite Authors Series and the Split This Rock poetry series in Washington D.C., the Queer Spirit Project in Salt Lake City, Utah and sponsorship of cultural content for LGBT community centers around the country. White Crane Journal is distributed in 23 countries. Evolutionary theory demonstrates that nothing endures in Nature that doesn’t provide some form of adaptive behavior for the good of Nature as a whole. There is ample historical, scientific and anthropological evidence to demonstrate that same-sex oriented people have been and are, critical components in the development of healthy, integrated societies concerned with deeper values and spiritual community. To demonstrate the essential, unique gifts that the often marginalized GLBT community plays in the spiritual development of humankind, White Crane Institute seeks to reclaim, through self reflection, scholarly study, and research, the traditional and natural role of GLBT people in the evolution of contemporary society.
