Exposed paperback now available at Amazon

Huzzah! There’s nothing like holding a physical copy of your own book, let me tell you. Exposed paperback just went live at Amazon this morning and you can order a copy here and if you’d like a signed copy, you can order that (or any other book) over here.

“This is erotic fiction of the highest calibre. Bey Deckard is a brilliant writer in my opinion. His imagination is incredible and his stories original and intelligently told. I absolutely loved every single one of his previous books, but Exposed has taken Bey Deckard to another level and this is, in my opinion, his best work to date. Fantastic and enthralling and captivating and arousing from the first word to the last.” —Books Laid Bare Boys

“I absolutely loved every moment of this story. It grabbed me from the get-go and I didn’t want to put it down. Sweet and kinky (with an age gap to boot!) is a win-win for me and Bey Deckard balanced it perfectly here.” —Sinfully Gay Romance Book Reviews

“By far the best daddy kink book I’ve read!”
“The chemistry between Greg and Emyr is instant and amazing. I was so into them as individuals and as a couple and all that comes with that. The sweet and sexy kink, the hurt/comfort, the Daddy/good boy and just everything. I truly have no idea what I am saying or how to properly review this because it was so much and I gorged hard core on this book.”
“Overall, a great read that I’m happy to add to my favorites of 2017 list.” —Boy Meets Boy Reviews

“Exposed is a wonderful May/December story with a side of Daddy kink that will make your heart melt.”—The Blogger Girls

“I knew this would be an amazing book because I love all of this authors work, what I didn’t expect was to fall in love with these characters so completely! Bey really knows how to draw you into a story like you are living it with the characters!”—Bike Book Reviews

Exposed is actually quite a gentle love story with a lot of hidden extras thrown in – as you would expect from Bey […] I would highly recommend Exposed.”—Love Bytes Reviews

Prey

He has a face like heartbreak
and his eyes are sorrow;
I’m pinned by his gaze.
Splayed.
Like a paper-feather butterfly;
Colours all gone grey.
Ash.
Dust on my fingertips;
His lips slide warm as tears
Down my cold cheek.
Loving him is madness.
Death.
Losing him is worse.

The Complications of T, now available in paperback

T-200x300

A few days ago, I finished up the formatting for a paperback edition of The Complications of T – I’d received a few emails/PMs asking about whether or not it would ever be in print – and it is now available at Amazon or CreateSpace :) It’s not very big, but it makes for a very pretty little book. I had this blog post in draft, planning on posting it next week, but then I received this a few minutes ago and thought I would share it with you now:

“Hello Mr. Deckard, I wanted to write to you to thank you from the very bottom of my heart for writing this book. I just finished it and tho I wanted it to last much longer, like what happened when they met up again and what happened to Stuart’s career? I really loved it. I’m F2M who has struggled with the obsesson of “passing” for over ten years now. But you know what is better than passing? Its realizing that its just a construct of society putting strict values one being a man or woman. I think that you perfectly captured what took me so long to accept and wrote it beautifully. Tim’s story could be my story, I see myself in him so much (tho I think he’s probably much more handsome!)

So thank you! There needs to be more stories like this! You’re right. You shouldn’t overthink it and I think that attitudes will change and be more accepting over time. But I have two questions so here: why is there no paper back version and can I get one signed if there is? Two: will you write about Tim and Stuart again?”

I sent back an email with my response and the gist is: Yes, there is now a paperback version (and anyone who ever wants to get a signed copy of something simply needs only send me an email or message).

And… yes, Tim and Stuart are going to be back in book 4 of The Actor’s Circle, slotted for mid-to-late 2016.

Interview with F.E. Feeley Jr., Horror and Romance Author

Today I’d like to welcome F.E. Feeley Jr. to my blog, author of the highly rated Memoirs of the Human Wraiths series.

Hello and welcome to my blog, Frederick. Thank you for agreeing to answer some questions. :)

First off, let me say congratulations on the new book! I just finished Still Waters and rather enjoyed it. Can you tell us a little about it? And, where did you get the idea for the story?

Thank you so much for having me here, today. And thank you for buying and reading it. That means a great deal and I am glad you liked it.

Still Waters is about an average town in anywhere U.S.A really. I chose Michigan because that’s where I’m from, but the concept was little towns and desperation to keep secrets. It started off with the idea of a murdered kid. And it developed from there. Why was he killed? Who did it? What were the circumstances surrounding his death. Who loved him? To be honest, it was not just addressing the gay community, although the character is gay, but our nation as a whole. We’re seeing a lot of dead kids lately, Trayvon Martin, or kids who have taken their own lives and it sort of started compounding from there. I wanted to address issues such as image, and diversity, and the extremes people would go to keep the status quo.

 

You’re writing in a niche subgenre (horror) within an already niche genre (m/m romance). Have you found that it makes finding readers more difficult?

Yes. I do find it difficult to find readers. But I think people really need to understand something or maybe give my books a chance anyway, even if they aren’t particularly fond of horror or paranormal books. What I like to do, Is take everyday issues and throw them waaaaaay out into the world of ghosts and the paranormal. I do this to simply make them more digestible. It’s hard to write about the darker sides of human nature in a contemporary way. At least it is for me. So what I do, I thrill you a little and then hopefully get my point across somewhere in the book. And on top of that, who doesn’t love a good spooky story? I think if gay people are going to be represented in literature, they should be represented in all literature.

 

I see that you’ve gone the traditional publishing route. What made you decide on that?

I had no idea what I was doing. My husband would say I still don’t lol. But I was going through a hard time a couple of years ago and started journaling and once I’d written oodles of pages I sat back and asked myself, ‘What are you going to do with this?” So, I decided, why not take chunks out of it at a time and start wrapping them in fiction? And that is how The Haunting of Timber Manor was born. I’d sat down at my computer, asked myself how do spooky novels start and the answer came back, “On a dark and stormy night….” So I went from there. I never even knew this genre existed. I had no earthly idea. And then when I was done I went looking for a publisher. Submitted the story and forgot about it. I nearly had a stroke when I opened my email one day and there was a contract from Dreamspinner Press. After that, I figured, if they would take a chance on me, I’ll stick with them. I haven’t regretted a moment of it. Their staff is excellent. They treat you wonderfully. The process for publishing is always thorough from first drafts to art, they work right alongside you.

 

I love horror. The very first “grown-up” book I ever read was Stephen King’s It. What was the first horror story you read?

I was reading since I can remember. It started in middle school with R.L. Stein’s Fear Street books and went on to Christopher Pike. And then in high school I jumped forward into V.C.Andrews, Tami Hoag, and just about anything or anyone I could get my hands on. Then I was given Stephen King’s Wastelands, book 3 of The Dark Tower and I was instantly over the moon. I became a King fan real quick. The scariest book I ever read from him was The Shining.
I also became a Koontz fan as well. Lightning, The Mask, and Twilight Eyes are amazing.

 

Can you tell us some of your all-time favourite horror stories (books or movies)?

I am a thirty four year old man that sleeps with his closet door shut, thanks to 1982’s Poltergeist. I won’t get into the ocean past my waist thanks to Jaws. But my favorite books that I’ve read and reread is King’s The Stand and Koontz’s Twilight Eyes. Amazing books.

 

I remember after reading some stories, I had a few creepy nights. Has there been a horror story that make you keep the light on?

HAHAHAHAHA I forgot about this but yeah, King’s Cycle of the Werewolf. I was terrified for days and slept with the light on.

 

Why the romance aspect in your books?

I love serendipity. I love, love. I think love is the only that can save this world we live in. And I think that people need to see gay men in love to understand that it isn’t just sex that motivate us. I feel like, even though I write in this genre, I am part of a global discussion on this issue and as a gay man, I intend to not just join, but lead.

 

What’s next? Are you currently working on something?

I am kinda sorta working on something. I don’t know if it is going to come to fruition. I am hoping it does. But its sort of up in the air right now so we’ll see.

 

Any advice for aspiring writers? Anything you wish someone had told you when you were starting out?

Pay attention to the world around you. And take, I think it was Hemingway, take Hemingway’s advice and sit down at your device and bleed. Give it all you got.

 

And finally: what do you enjoy the most about writing?

The process of weaving a story together from an idea. And then going through the gamut of emotions along with everyone. And then dropping myself inside the story as a beacon so the reader doesn’t have to go through it alone. I have this personal rule. I will get you to your happy ending, but you have to go through the dark with me first. Your gonna earn it. I promise I’ll be with you through it, but yeah, you’re going through it.

Thanks again for letting me host you on my blog. Good luck and happy writing!
