With the captain’s mind in shambles, Jon and Tom set out to find the passage home through the black mountain range, hoping to find a cure for Baltsaros’s madness. However, when the men are forced to part ways, darkness takes root in the schism created; fate, lust, and vengeance become obsessions threatening to tear apart the fragile bonds holding the three together.
Following on the heels of Sacrificed, Fated takes the pirates on a quest to find those responsible for the captain’s bloody beginnings. But can they survive what awaits them where past and present meet?
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
Originally, I was going to publish Max later on in October, but the planets aligned and everything was ready quickly, so I sent it live early… and promptly got really fucking sick. cough sneeze
The stress of finishing a book (hey, it’s stressful) on top of all the stress I’ve been under concerning the pit bull ban in Montréal means I got hit harder than I normally would. Thankfully, I am on the mend. (Also, for those who haven’t heard yet, a judge from the Superior Court of Québec, at the SPCA’s behest, suspended the pit bull ban until the actual court hearing is held [which could be in a few months]. HOWEVER, the fucking mayor is now vowing to appeal. shakes head)
SO! Max quietly went live and I have to say that I’m really happy with how it turned out. It’s the first book I wrote that really covers some of my own stomping ground (The Complications of T was also set partially in Montréal but they never really went out heh) and that was incredibly fun. Almost all the locations are based on real ones, and I tried to convey a sense of Montréal-ness in the use of language and names of things throughout the book: French/English coexistence, crime syndicates, marchés, the metro, the fireworks over the water…
Hey, I love my city… :)
Is it a dark book? Some say yes, some no. It’s certainly twisted and covers dark themes overall. Don’t expect anything resembling a healthy relationship in it. Mostly it’s suspense… or a thriller. I think it’s a rollicking fun psycho romp. I had a good time throwing in references, both subtle and blatant, to my favourite movies and I put together a soundtrack that has some songs that I loved dancing to back in my goth club days.
I’ve got three signed paperbacks to give away. All you have to do is answer the following questions and you’ll be entered to win (international entrants welcome). Send your answers to email@example.com with the subject: Max Paperback Giveaway.
Good luck! I’ll draw three names on Halloween.
Question one: What movie is this from?
I see angels, Mickey. They’re comin’ down for us from heaven. And I see you ridin’ a big red horse, and you’re driving them horses, whippin’ ’em, and the’re spitting and frothing all ‘long the mouth, and the’re coming right at us. And I see the future, and there’s no death, ’cause you and I, we’re angels…
Question two: In the soundtrack, I used one song that was used in a TV show. What is the name of the show? (hint: it features a serial killer)
Question three: What movie is this from?
Early seemed harmless. Primitive, but harmless. Of course the fact of the matter was he had killed his landlord less than an hour before we met him. He was even wearing the guy’s ring. Who knows what he did with the finger?
Question four: Why was Montreal once called (and sometimes still referred to as) “Sin City”?
Question five: What movie is this from?
I’ve no plans to call on you, Clarice. The world is more interesting with you in it.
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.
Booyah. Paperback available here.
The F.I.S.T.S. Handbook…. what is it?
It is a book that contains both Sarge, Murphy, and a tiny “missing reel”. There are three versions of it.
The Full-Colour edition has colour images of the covers inside, as well as a few extra images just for fun. It retails for $22 USD at Amazon and other places. Which is hella expensive, I know, for a 145 page book, but at that price I make a buck and change in royalties. If I can find somewhere else to get it printed for cheaper, I will, but for the moment that’s how it stands.
However, if you’re buying it thinking that there’s going to be a whole lot of extra content… there isn’t. I consider it sort of a “collector’s copy” – I want a copy for myself. The missing reel is just extra, but it’s not a full scene, and it’s not intended to add to the story. Just give a peek into how the relationship took off. I will also be offering signed copies this version.
If you just want a print version with the two novelettes (and the missing reel) but don’t care about colour images, then the second version is for you:
The Black & White edition has black and white images of the covers inside and no extra images. It retails for $8 USD at Amazon and other places.
If you don’t want a print version but would like to have the two novelettes (and the missing reel) in electronic format, the third version is for you:
The kindle version is an e-copy of the full-colour edition. It retails for $4 USD.
If you already own both S&M and just want the reel, send me an email at bey dot deckard at gee mail dot com
