    New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Arabella Quinn

    Being Jane wasn’t easy.

    No one ever noticed me. I was invisible. My life was utterly boring. Not the spoiled-brat kind of boring, but the bone weary kind of boring.

    Then, out of the blue, one little phone call changed my life. Things started happening. Life got real complicated … real fast.

    You’ve heard of love triangles, right? Well, there was some kind of geometry going on in my love life, but it wasn’t as simple as a triangle. More like an incongruous polygon…

    Being Jane Brown was hard.

    I had to tiptoe around my fragile mother. I made terrible mistakes that led to heartache and misery. But, I finally felt alive.

    An epic love was mine to experience – if only I had the courage to lay my heart bare.

  • The Clouds Still Hang by Patrick C Notchtree @pcnotchtree

    0 out of 5

    A trilogy telling a story of love and loyalty, betrothal and betrayal, triumph and tragedy; novels that chart one man’s attempts to rise above the legacy of a traumatic childhood.

    The first book deals with Simon’s childhood friendship and eventually love affair with an older boy, the second the trauma of his teenage years and early adulthood, the third his struggle to maintain equilibrium and the consequences of his failure at one point to achieve that.

    It is a fictional biography, written because it tells a strong story which raises many issues over six decades, the post war baby boomer generation who in many ways never had it so good.

    His own experience is probably unique, yet will strike a chord with many others who have been through similar things, as well as those with an interest in such matters, either personal or professional, such as police and probation officers, criminologists with an interest in this field or those investigating the developing ‘queer theory’.

    It’s a varied, exciting, demanding, sometimes terrifying life story.

    It is not suitable for those under 18 years or who find explicit sexual narrative, including sexual violence, offensive.

    The first part was originally published in March 2012 under the title “The Secret Catamite Book 1 The Book of Daniel” which is still available separately in downloadable formats only.
