Update

Delays from all ends (rather longer than anticipated lead times from the companies I'm dealing with) mean that, as you may have figured out, September is no longer a reality. "Out of Bounds" should be going to print (all fingers crossed) in December. When more exact dates can be confirmed I will do so. In the mean time, Kite Hill has a short story by Suvi Mahonen in the works - look out for links in the next week or so!

Exciting News!

'Out of Bounds' will be available to buy in paperback soon as one of the first titles from Kite Hill Publishing (link in homepage, above)!

The company was born of the desire to produce quality books, which are well written, edited and formatted, despite containing GLBT characters. The idea is to prove that fiction like this could and does have a more general following than people who are solely interested in erotica.

Make contact through the website if you're interested in cross promotion of any form, particularly if you're a self-publisher!

Just to avoid confusion and to make sure no one feels I'm being wilfully deceptive - Kite Hill Publishing is my own business. I'm passionate about publishing quality fiction. To allay any worries: this is not a vehicle for my ego - future catalogues will not be dominated by my work. That's unethical and not what I'm out to do. It's just a little tricky to start up a publishing company without a book to print!

For status updates about Kite Hill Publishing and to help build up support, pick your poison and add us on facebook (Kite Hill), twitter (KHPublishing) or livejournal (kitehill)!

In terms of writing, my update schedule is a little slow at the moment. Rest assured, my head explodes if I stop writing. Nothing is abandoned; I'm far too stubborn for that.

I've also set up a livejournal as zebbiemartin (all one word), so if you're interested, check it out!

Comments, criticism etc eternally appreciated. Be as harsh as you like - it's better for me.


A Confession

I write slightly different, but similar (less funny, mostly?) stuff as Zebbie, because I'm odd enough that the mental separation helps with production (...she says after grinding to a stunning halt on everything).

So if you've liked this stuff and are looking for something else to read, check it out!


Nerves won Best All Round at Sweet Revolution Awards - thank you so much!

Assisted Lift reviews
Phil doesn’t know what Craig’s on. Why would a straight guy pretend to be a girl online? Total boredom was his guess. Real answer? To save his jaded best friend from man-hating gloom because he's not rebounding on his own. Manhunt? Maybe, briefly. Slash.

Pet Shop Boys reviews
Get a pet they said, and that was how Damon ended up with Marcus the cat. Marcus was why he found himself in the pet shop almost every day, annoying Luke. MxM Slash.

A River in Egypt reviews
Denial is an awkward obstacle to come across, as Jonty McPhee found out recently. Fortunately, fantastic and flamboyant Gareth Pedder finds all the drama quite amusing. Given the way he’s dressed, that’s to be expected! Slash.

Wise China reviews
All of the key events in Douglas Stanton's life have, up to this point in time, been caused by a tea cup. Gay male romance.

Nerves reviews
Meet me - David – a jittery student nurse who thought entering a roommate carer scheme was a brilliant idea. Meet Ryan – skate-punk extraordinaire with a penchant for chucking himself off vert ramps. In his wheelchair. Oh Lordy, that's got to hurt. Slash
