This is a beautifully written story. It tells a tale of the toughest choice that any lover - perhaps every lover - has to face. Do I, in the interest of the person I love, make the ultimate sacrifice and give that peron up? The author uses a deceptiv ...more

Anything but creepy. Delighted. And there's a book of my short stories (including Sailor Boys) coming out on kindle in the next few hours. Title 'Matches in the Dark'.


Cor Cordium Thank you so much for the friend-vite! I loved Sailor Boys and look forward to reading your full-length novels. This is one of the reasons that I love the M/M group writing event. I may not have found you otherwise.

Did that just sound creepy? :-)


Anthony McDonald Great to hear from you. Hope you'll like Adam. A new collection of my short stories - inspired by the success of Sailor Boys - is out later today or tomorrow. 'Matches in the Dark'. Hope you'll take a look at least...!

Macky Hi Anthony, thanks so much for the invite. I've just read Sailor Boys and it was wonderful. Adam is on my ( ever growing ) TBR list. :)


Anthony McDonald And thank you for your generous response to it, Jen!


JustJen "Miss Conduct" Thanks for the add, Anthony. Looking forward to reading more of your work. :)


Anthony McDonald Oh that's lovely, Sue. It's a bright sunny Bank Holiday morning here in the UK. Your message has brightened it further!


message 3: by SueM

SueM Thanks for the friend invite, Anthony. I really enjoyed your story, and as an Australian, appreciated seeing words spelt correctly! I am actually part of the event team and had the honour of working on your story on the formatting side. It was immediately obvious that your story was worthy of being [equal] first cab off the rank. Hopefully you'll be pleased with the end result of the ebooks!


Anthony McDonald That's lovely. Hope you'll give some of my other stuff a try!


Bookbee Thanks for the Friend invite, Anthony! And yes, I liked Sailor Boys very much! :)
