Description: “Ciarrai is running away from a past that’s still breathing down his neck. Jack has no past, his memory wiped in the accident that killed his parents. They meet and their lives move forward like stones skimming the surface of the water, dipping into memories that want to surface and those that want to lie buried forever.
Together, they struggle to come to terms with what happened in the past and where they want to go in the future, but can Jack cope with a man who likes to dress in leather mini-skirts and silk kimonos? Can Ciarrai trust Jack with the secrets of his past; secrets he can’t escape, secrets that are snapping at his heels?
When those secrets catch up, forcing Ciarrai back to the life he’d left, a life that was slowly draining his life away, he and Jack’s love is both threatened and tested by forces from without and within.”
About The Author:
Born into a poor but loving mining family in the United Kingdom, Nephylim grew up in the beautiful and history rich South Wales Valleys, becoming the first in her family to attend university. As a lawyer practicing Family Law for several years, the profession allowed Nephylim to learn more about human nature at its worst and best moments, and develop empathy and a view of life not limited by social standing or background.
Tapping into the heritage of her people that throughout Earth's ages welcomed the wandering bard into the hearts of their villages as keepers of lore, Nephylim trained as a Druid and brings the richness of her Celtic past and spiritual training to enrich and elevate her writing. Since a child Nephylim has been fascinated with other worlds, which exist within and alongside her own and has reveled in creating worlds and characters for others to enjoy.
Despite lack of family support, Nephylim continued writing privately and eventually found the Gay Authors website. With the positive response and a warm welcome received, she found the confidence to pursue her passion to a greater degree. Feeling gay fiction was a woefully neglected corner of the market where readers were all too often presented with what amounted to erotica, Nephylim strives to write quality gay fiction where sex and sexuality is not the central premise. Instead, concentration is given to character and narrative development through storytelling that goes beyond the physical.
Nephylim still resides in Wales, UK, and enjoys writing, reading, art, and taking part in medieval reenactments.

AND IN MORE NEWS
So anyway, apart from that I have two other new releases for sure this year and maybe more, all new stuff
I also have two new stories ready for posting here and have promised myself that I will be more active. How far I'll be able to keep up with that promise I don't know. I haven't had time to read for a long time and with the book promos becoming more like an actual job every day it's hard to juggle everything.
I do miss coming here though so I'm going to try hard to make a real effort to get involved again.
Come an visit me on my blog nephylim-author.blogspot.com. I've been posting flash fiction every Wednesday and you can read one completed story of a thousand words per chapter, Rune and Luke, as well as a new one which is currently being posted, In the Arms of an Angel.
You can also read excerpts from all my published books, although you can read two of them Enigma and Enigma II right here
Oh and if you leave a comment on the post about The Runaway, you can win a copy. YAY. Gods I'm actually beginning to think that winning a copy of my book is a GOOD thing
Watch out for more information of linked ebooks, and other stuff.
