Runaway Rock Star RunawayRockStarFS_v1
from Dreamspinner Press

Just hours before Brandon Harris is supposed to head home to Cincinnati for a Labor Day family picnic, his boss at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame forces him into giving a private tour to bratty British pop rock star Lucas Black. Before he knows it, he finds himself swept up in a whirlwind road trip through Ohio with Lucas riding shotgun.

Lucas grabs hold of this wild opportunity to run away—even for a few precious days—from the gilded cage that is his carefully managed life. He’s just looking for a little fun and freedom as a normal person. From roller coasters to a college football game, Brandon begins to see the real Lucas Black buried under the famous persona. But by the time he and Lucas discover their mutual attraction, they only have one night left before both of them have to go back to their real lives. The fun is over…unless Lucas can run away for real this time and keep their adventure going.

All Or Nothing

CJAnthony_Cover_600x900
A free story for the Goodreads M/M Group’s Love’s Landscapes Event

 “Goddammit John, you’ve got to get off your ass and get laid!” – The advice from John’s best friend makes him cringe. John Mattheson has been moping around since his partner of eleven years left for a job in Boston. His best friend Mac has been pushing him to “get out there,” and find someone (or many “someones”). Under duress, he agrees to go to a party at Mac’s bar, planning to make an appearance, have a couple beers and go back home. What he doesn’t expect is to meet Mark Kincaid…or to wake up with Mark in his apartment the next morning.

Mark just wants to date John and when John reluctantly agrees, they should be on their way to happy ever after. If only John could get past their age difference. At forty-five, John can’t imagine being with someone twenty years younger. After a disastrous date with Mark that they manage to turn into a friendship, John decides maybe it really is time to find someone his own age, who—in all important ways—is just like him. What John finds instead is the realization that sometimes what you want is already there waiting for you.

Marking Time cover LR
While most gay men grow up living in the closet until they are brave enough to step out and be themselves, Adam Shepherd experiences the opposite. After living almost all of his young life out and gay, he goes into the closet, willingly, in order to have the career and life he wants and needs. He thinks he can handle it, but he soon discovers how much he has truly given up.

Chase Michaels was always there for Adam, a substitute “big-brother” and true friend in his growing up years. Adam has always harbored a secret involving Chase, but it conflicts with the closet he now lives in as an adult. When the pressure becomes too much, Adam chooses to
stay in his closet . . . but at what cost? And can he change
things before it’s too late?

Letting Go

CJAnthonyCover_500x710 Written for the 2013 M/M Goodreads Group’s
Love Has No Boundaries Event

The last time I saw him he was looking at me with that big silly grin on his face, his eyes lit up and shimmering like the lights on a Christmas tree. He laughed as he tilted his head back and he looked so free.

All Sam wanted was one night with his boyfriend Dustin where they could enjoy being together and being themselves. Where they didn’t have to hide from their devoutly Catholic parents.

One second—one split second is all it takes for life to turn completely upside down and shatter into a million pieces. One minute Sam and Dustin were together and happy. And the next, Sam wakes up to the news that Dustin is gone. As he tries to process this news, his disappointed parents force him to “find God and get normal again.” But all Sam wants is Dustin.

With a rescue from his sister, Sam slowly begins the fight back for a life of his own…a life without Dustin. One step, one minute, one day at a time.

It isn’t until he meets Nick—someone who has been where he has been—that he begins to climb out of the darkness of the past year. But can Sam make that final leap to let go of Dustin and allow his heart to love again?

“It’s time to let go… (it will be okay)”

  1. I loved this story. It is a tragedy that so many GLBT young people do not have support from their families. Ignorance does kill in some cases.

    1. Thank you Diane for the comment, I’m glad you liked the story. Letting Go was hard to write, I could never imagine not supporting my child, and it is sad that some kids do not have that unconditional support.
