I don't hang out on Goodreads much, so if you'd like to connect with me then Twitter, Facebook or an email is usually best :) All my contact details are on my website.

Jay lives just outside Bristol in the West of England. He comes from a family of writers, but always used to believe that the gene for fiction writing had passed him by. He spent years only ever writing emails, articles, or website content.

One day, Jay decided to try and write a short story—just to see if he could—and found it rather addictive. He hasn’t stopped writing since.

Jay writes contemporary romance about men who fall in love with other men. Jay has five books published by Dreamspinner Press, and he also self-publishes under the imprint Jaybird Press. Many of his books

Hey, thank you for asking. I'm so glad you have enjoyed the Rainbow Place series so far.
I'm actually working on book 3 right now and it's nearly finished. I'm hoping to publish it by the end of Feb, or early March at the latest, so watch this space!
Thanks for reading my books :)(less)
Jay Northcote Hi, the paperback came out a day or so early. But the ebook is now live too!

Quotes by Jay Northcote  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Is that a yes?” Sean’s dark gaze flicked up to meet Justin’s, before Justin threw his head back onto the pillow, closed his eyes, and let Jesus take the wheel.”
Jay Northcote, What Happens at Christmas

“I should get over it and go back to pining over celebrities instead. At least they’re completely unobtainable so it’s less depressing when they don’t like me back.”
Jay Northcote, Rainbow Place

“Le etichette possono essere riduttive. A volte bisogna smettere di pensare a genere e orientamento e concentrarsi sulla persona. Se ti importa di qualcuno, se ti senti bene quando siete insieme, se ti eccita... allora che importanza ha tutto il resto?”
Jay Northcote, Helping Hand
