The stories:

Lovers and Other Strangers by Josh Lanyon


Recovering from a near fatal accident, artist Finn Barret returns to Seal Island in Maine to rest and recuperate. But Seal Island is haunted with memories, some sweet, some sad; three years ago Finn found his lover in the arms of Fitch, Finn's twin brother. Since that day, Finn has seen neither Conlan nor Fitch. In fact, no one has seen Fitch. What happened to him? Did Fitch run away, as everyone believes? Or did he meet a more sinister fate? To put the past to rest - and see if there's any chance of a future with Con - Finn must discover the truth. But the deeper he digs, the more reason he has to fear Con is the only one who knows what truly happened to Fitch.

Body Art by Jordan Castillo Price

Ray Carlucci's lover swindled him out of everything he valued, including a tattoo business. Hounded by creditors, weary of heart, Ray accepts the job of chauffeur and body man for the dying owner of a remote estate. The island, minus its wealthy summer colony, is colorless in winter and Ray thinks he understands why staff on the estate periodically desert. But, he's baffled by, then drawn to, Anton, the eccentric artist who haunts the forest, bringing strange life to bizarre and disquieting sculptures amidst the ice and trees. When the body of a man who once held Ray's job rises from the frosty earth, Ray wonders what part Anton's wildness has in the escalating violence.

Hi Jordan,
I have just read this for the second time since yesterday and it was brilliant. I NEED more Ray and Anton, any more coming about these two? Congratulations on another fab book.

OMG, you know my favorite thing in the world is when someone reads my story more than once.

Anton and Ray's story is complete. But feel free to imagine them exploring the kinky use of plastic wrap/cling film. That was the scene I almost wrote the first time they had sex in Anton's little house, though I decided if I made their inaugural bedding too weird, the kink would take away from the emotional connection ;-)

I'm so happy you enjoyed the story :D

I loved the imagery in this book, Anton's creations and his reactions to inspiration hitting reminded me so much of artist friends of mine. Something will click for them, and bang, they were gone to capture it immediately.
and BUGGERY BOLLOCKS, about there not being any more Ray and Anton. How bout short stories in your newsletter when Zero Hour is completed? I am not too proud to beg ;)

Thank you! I didn't even see that storm. My dad described it to me. (And he ends every sentence with "and things like that," I kid you not. So any good wording was my own.)

You described it perfectly. It was a breath taking scene(and seeing ice surrounding everything is beautiful) and at the same time a horror filled one. The cracking of the branches, it just made the night of 'the ice storm' come flooding back. And that night I was petrified because that is all you heard, trees/branches falling and power lines snapping, transformers blowing up, I thought I was going to die.

And that's what makes you a brilliant author. You bring these scenes to life and it seems so real and effortless, it comes natural to you. I was looking forward to that scene and read it with a critical eye and you did not disappoint at all.

Finally!

I was beginning to wonder if this was ever going to come out;)

I thoroughly enjoyed it the first time I read Body Art and I look forward to reading again.

Again, thank you.

I was beginning to wonder too! I love that you're planning a re-read--thank you, that's my very favorite compliment!
