The Stoker Connection – Cover

The Stoker Connection – Cover

Only here folks! The first view of the cover of ‘The Stoker Connection.’ My next romance-mystery-thriller-young adult novel is due out in a couple of weeks. As of today, June 2nd, it’s with my wonderful proofreader, Ann, and the cover art has just come back from my equally wonderful designer, Andjela K.

What you see here on the front is:

The Stoker ConnectionDexter Mitchell, is top left, looking gorgeous and sporty. He’s into rock climbing and hiking, outdoor pursuits and cracking the hidden clues in Bram Stoker’s novel, ‘Dracula’ that he believes will prove the novel was a true story.

Morgan Davis is next to him, darker and more serious, exactly the same age and more of an academic than a sportsman. Morgan, like (and with) Dexter, is also about to make a breakthrough in his research to prove ‘Dracula’ was a true story.

Beneath them, outside Whitby Abbey in the fog, we have Simon on the left, and Tim on the right with his naff hair. Simon is Morgan’s best friend (and one-off lover), and Tim and Dexter have been mates since before they can remember. Tim is straight, but he and Dex do have something of a bromance going on.

The Stoker Connection full coverWhitby Abbey features on the cover (front and back) because part of the novel is set there, and the Abbey was used by Stoker in ‘Dracula’ as a location. The other locations I use in the novel are a mix of real places and imagined ones. I’ll let you into a few secrets:

Dex lives out on ‘Moremarsh’, an area in the south-east of England actually known as Romney Marsh (and here’s another secret: that’s where I am from). He volunteers at a theatre in Folkestone and although the theatre was real (I used to work there years ago) it’s no longer a theatre and last I heard was to be pulled down. Shame, it’s a beautiful old Edwardian building.

Morgan lives in Chippenham, and I chose that location because it’s roughly 170 miles (by car) from where Dex lives. You’ll see why that number is important when you read the book.

The Stoker Connection
This is the original photo of Tim and Simon. They are holding chainsaws which have nothing to do with ‘The Stoker Connection’ so we had to cover them in fog!

The boys travel to a house called Kyllion, and this is on top of Westerton Cliffs in Cornwall. Except it isn’t. It was invented by Stoker for ‘The Jewel of Seven Stars’, and I borrowed the house for a reason that will become obvious when you read the book.

They also visit Whitby Abbey (which I did once many years ago) and New Slains Castle in Scotland, again, you’ll see why when you read ‘The Stoker Connection.’

Those are the principal characters and locations. There are other characters of course, like Morgan’s mother, the forthright sex therapist who is based on a woman I knew a few years back; totally bonkers and very upfront.

The novel will be out soon, but in the meantime,  you can join my mailing list to be among the first to get the links to the published book on Amazon.

Release: The Mentor of Lostwood Hall

Release: The Mentor of Lostwood Hall

Hi folks!

It’s now out there, The Mentor of Lostwood Hall, and already there are a couple of five-star reviews. It’s always gratifying to get good reviews, and interesting to get not so good ones, though I have only ever had one three-star review for my books, all the others have been four of five.

The mentor of lostwood hall“Some angst, some violence, some edge of your seat moments, but mainly a sweet love story.”

“I think this is my favourite story so far of this series. It is really well told and so descriptive.”

I’ve started offering 10 free copies of my novels to the first ten people who reply to the newsletter I send out when a book is about to be published. These subscribers then review the book in return. If you want to be in the running for the next free offer, join my mailing list.

I am currently working on the next novel, a diary form love story with a mystery and an adventure. The main characters are two eighteen-year-olds coming out, both have an interest in a certain gothic romance novel which leads them on a strange adventure… But I won’t say too much about it now, you’ll have to wait a while.

In the meantime, please do check out my author page and, if you can, leave reviews for the novels you’ve read. All of my titles are included in Kindle Unlimited if you use that, all the eBooks are set at $2.99 (with slight variation and in various currencies), and the paperbacks are at $9.99, mainly due to the cost of print on demand.

Happy reading!

The Mentor of Lostwood Hall
Julian

I just wanted to share with you, the two models we’re using on the front cover of the soon to be released, The Mentor Of Lostwood Hall. Meet Julian, the older man who owns the rambling Hall in the Welsh mountains, and Lee, from south London who crashes his car nearby while fleeing an impossible life.

The Mentor of Lostwood Hall
Lee

As usual with my Mentor books, you have new characters, a new location, romance, drama, some comedy and a love story. I am aiming to have the book released in May, and will probably be looking for ARC readers (Amazon Review Copies). If you are interested, join my mailing list.

Meanwhile, while I wait for my wonderful designer to design the cover, here is the blurb for The Mentor Of Lostwood Hall.

The Mentor of Lostwood Hall
Jackson Marsh

“A man with a future he can’t accept and a lad with a past he can’t escape.”

Two men in a storm-battered castle harbouring secrets and hopes unknowingly guide each other to an unexpected friendship that turns to passionate love.

Julian Ford’s life is at a crossroads. Thirty-four, disillusioned with his screenwriting career and cheated by love, he craves the chance of isolation at his rambling home in the Welsh mountains, Lostwood Hall. But when 21-year-old Lee Benson survives a car crash, Julian has no choice but to take him in.

Their pasts collide, bringing a storm of doubts, fears, a jealous ex-lover and a dangerous thug seeking revenge. Is Julian and Lee’s fledgeling relationship strong enough to survive? And do they trust each other enough to escape death?

The Mentor of Lostwood Hall is the fourth in Jackson Marsh’s ‘Mentor’ collection of older/younger MM romance.

The Blake Inheritance

The Blake Inheritance

The Blake InheritanceGreat news! ‘The Blake Inheritance’ is now available on Kindle, Kindle Unlimited and any day now will be available in print too.

There are two new characters for you to meet, Ryan Blake and Charlie Hatch. One reviewer has already said, ‘Charlie is such a delightful character, I enjoyed reading how, after years of hero worship of Ryan, his dreams eventually came true.

I tried to make this one a bit quirky. There’s a romance, there’s sex, but there’s also a mystery and some humour. The two main characters are around the same age (makes a change for me), 22 and 25, and couldn’t be more different. I hope you like them.

The Blake Inheritance – Kindle

Meanwhile… I am currently on my second draft of the next in the Mentor collection, ‘The Mentor of Lostwood Hall.’ I aim to have that one ready for you in a month or so.

Don’t forget, if you’ve read any of my books and enjoyed them, please leave a review at Amazon, or/and share them on your Facebook pages and other book groups.

The Mentor of Lonemarsh House

The Mentor of Lonemarsh House

Coming soon

Currently in proofing stage and cover design – below is the back blurb and the first draft of the cover – this will be ammended, but I think the top half is fine.

Here’s the blurb:

The Mentor of Lonemarsh House

The Mentor of Lonemarsh House“I love you enough to let you run, but too much to see you fall.”

Burnt out from his life as a musician and record producer, 35-year-old Matt Barrow takes on Lonemarsh House, an isolated manor in the Kent marshes. When he meets 23-year-old Jason Hodge, a brilliant violinist, Matt knows this is the young man he wants to share his new life with. But Jason is closeted and at the mercy of his treacherous friends.

Jason is trapped by fear and Matt may be his escape, but should he jeopardise his safety for the love of an older man?

The Mentor of Lonemarsh House is the third in Jackson Marsh’s ‘Mentor’ collection of older/younger gay romance novels.

Barrenmoor Ridge scores 9/10 at Noteworthy

Basking in the glow of a fantastic review of ‘The Mentor of Barrenmoor Ridge’ at Noteworthy Book Reviews.

The Mentor of Barrenmoor Ridge
The Mentor of Barrenmoor Ridge – Kindle and Paperback

John understood his inexperience and led the way. When John’s mouth opened around Gary’s shaft, and the heat of his throat engulfed it, Gary moaned loudly and threw his head back. He’d never known this sensation, never been so wanted, never been made to feel so special.”

The Mentor of Barrenmoor Ridge

The Mentor of Barrenmoor Ridge is now available on Kindle (and in print in January 2018).

It takes a brave man to climb a mountain, but it takes a braver lad to show him the way.”

John Hamilton, at 36, is an Everest climber living an isolated life halfway up wild Fellborough in Yorkshire. He’s there to recover from the death of his lover and put his life in order. Gary Taylor, at 19, is homeless with no chance of a future. Gary finds a desperate way to make money but the plan backfires on him, and he finds himself on Fellborough, injured and close to death.

When John rescues him, the two soon come to realise that perhaps they can save each other, all they need to do is accept who they are and what they really want.

‘Barrenmoor Ridge’ is an MM romance novel with a thriller through line set in an unforgiving British winter, but hopefully, it will warm your heart.

In School and Out

In School and Out

gay eroticaIn School and Out is a collection of 13 gay sex stories. Half of the collection is set in a British Boys’ boarding school, and the other half on a Greek island.

The collection is currently available on Kindle and will soon be available in print. Check my page of Novels for more information and links.

 

In School and Out contains graphic gay sex. Some examples:

After Gym Class

Milo pulled forward again, sliding his arsehole smoothly around my cock. I felt the pressure of his buttocks lift from my hips as he moved forward and then press againt me again as he slid back. He did this again, and each time I felt my cock swell further, my balls started to ache, and my legs began to tremble. I knew that I couldn’t keep this up for long.

schoolboy gay erotica storiesAlex’s First Time

The lad struggled with the briefs, got his hands inside and pulled them off. Dean’s cock sprang out, slapped against the innocent face and was immediately lost as the boy impaled himself on the shaft.

Master In the Shower

I took hold of my prick in my hand and started playing with it. This was too good an opportunity to miss – seeing one of the masters wanking in the shower, if that was what he was doing. Looked like it to me. It would have been better if I’d been able to join in, but of course, that was not going to happen.

Greek boys gay sexThe Greek Lads

He was standing in front of the window, his back to the sunset and the long white curtains shielded the light, sighing in the breeze. His hands were on his hips, and his jeans had been undone at the stud. I couldn’t make out his expression, but he didn’t move when I came in, naked and still damp, still hard. I stopped in my tracks, first with shock and then with uncertainty. He was in my room; he would have to be the one to make the first move.

Lonely Road

His slim, smooth hips were rising to draw me into him. He was feeding on me, sucking me into him, pulling at my back. And at the same time, I was allowing him into me. Feeling him slide carefully in, not holding him too tight for fear of breaking him. As I rode, he rode. Together in the same rhythm, in the same heartbeats, both of us giving what the other wanted and taking only what we needed.

The Mentor of Wildhill Farm
