Spirits of Abaddon: Twilight of the Gods (book 4)
by Mychael Black
Changeling Press

Time has run out for Jesse, Gabriel and Lazarus. With the rogue archdemon Hiil and his vast army marching for Abaddon from a neighboring world, Gabriel is forced to make a decision that may mean the death of one of his lovers. As an elemental, Lazarus once sought control of Ba’al’s lands. Things have changed, but if Ba’al returns, the ice mage’s word may not be enough to keep him from the archdemon’s wrath.

Years ago, Shayne and I wrote a novel called Love and the Straight Gay. It's been one we've toyed with, in terms of publishing ideas, off and on. Well, I'm revising, editing, and we're determined to get this thing to one of our publishers this summer. Not sure which pub will get it yet. Below is Chapter One. ;)

Blurb:

Todd Jacobs is fresh out of a six-year relationship with "partner" who sought only to use him and control him. Repressed and, during those six years, unable to even show the slightest hint in public that he's gay, he's suddenly thrust into single-hood. Hoping to get drunk, and maybe have a bit of a quick rebound fling, he meets out and rather flamboyant Loren Spears. What follows is a wild--but honest--romance.

Here's the opening scene for book 3 in my Spirits of Abaddon series with Changeling Press. You can find the other two books here: Bad Blood (Spirits of Abaddon 1) and Sanctified (Spirits of Abaddon 2)

Be aware that this series *must* be read in order, so there are spoilers in case you've not read the first two!

Blurb:

With his lovers Gabriel and Lazarus, Jesse Eldridge traverses the shadowy realm of Abaddon, a world of demons and gods, in pursuit of Hiil, the rogue god of a neighboring world. Hiil fully intends on bringing all of Abaddon to its knees, but he doesn't realize that Gabriel has a secret weapon in the coming war: Jesse. As a crossbreed (vampire and elemental), Jesse possesses powers surpassing those of both his lovers. There's little time for him to come into his full abilities, however, and it's going to take a miracle if he and his lovers are to survive.

I know, I know... it's been a while since I posted, especially the sneak peeks. I'm trying to get better about posting. :) Anyhoo...

Today's Sneak Peek is from book 2 of the Secrets of Socendor series I have with Samhain Publishing. Dragonblade picks up where The Lost Son left off, and this little scene is near the beginning. Kalen's been gone for a week--the guys are making up for it. ;)

**POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT for those who have NOT read book 1!**
