Bold Strokes 2014

Jane Hoppen, Jeremy Jordan King, Andrew J. Peters, Nora Olsen, Joel Gomez-Dossi, Daniel W. Kelly, Trinity Tam, and Nell Stark present a tasting platter of their freshest, most recent Bold Strokes Books novels. Here’s something to whet the appetite for all genres, all genders, and all interests.

His Immortal Testimonies series, published Bold Strokes Books, was listed in Advocate’s “Top 10 Books for Young LGBT Folks and Anyone Who Wants to Understand Them” and recommended by the American Library Association’s GLBT Round Table. He’s also a librettist.
Andrew J. Peters is an author, an activist and an educator. His published work includes the young adult fantasy The Seventh Pleiade and the Werecat series.

He is an administrator and an adjunct professor at Adelphi University, and lives in Kew Gardens, NY with his husband and their cat Chloë.

He is the author of two novels published by Bold Strokes Books, Pursued and Deadly Cult.
Daniel W. Kelly is the author of the erotic horror novels CombustionNo Place for Little Ones, and Rise of the Thing Down Below. He is also creator of Boys, Bears & Scares, a website dedicated to gay male horror.
