I have a special Friday treat for you, today. When I first saw the submissions call for the Sexy Little Pages anthology, Myths, Moons and Mayhem, I knew it would be a special book, partly because it’s an anthology dedicated entirely to gay erotica which, if you’ve read my post on James Lear, you’ll know that I absolutely love, and partly because I discovered it was being edited by Dale Cameron Lowry. If you have never read any of their work, then I thoroughly recommend it. Their writing is as distinct as it is beautiful.
When I realised the anthology was ready for release, I jumped at the chance to invite Dale onto my blog and tell you all about the book. And, being so lovely and generous, they have also included a few special treats along the way, so keep reading to find out what they are!
If you’re not on Dale’s mailing list, then I recommend that, too. I am!
Without further ado, let me hand you over to Dale, and Myths, Moons and Mayhem.
Thanks for inviting me to be on your blog today, Ina. As an introduction to your readers, I’m Dale Cameron Lowry, and my number one goal in life is getting the cat to stop eating dish towels; number two is to create things that bring people joy. Often, that means I end up writing erotica. Other times, it means I edit it.
I did both in my newest paranormal collection: Myths, Moons, and Mayhem, published by Sexy Little Pages. In it, I’ve gathered nine stories of gay ménages a trois fueled by lust and magic, written by beloved erotic romance writers like Clare London and Rob Rosen, as well as talented voices that may be new to you.
This collection is a virtual a trick-or-treat basket overflowing with a scrumptious variety of pleasures. Two Bigfoot hunters get more than they bargained for when they set out on an overnight camping trip, a young Welsh farmer is haunted by visions of his future lover, and a magic spell in search of Mr. Right breaks open a night of passion between roommates. Ghosts, werewolves, vampires, fairies, and aliens all make an appearance.
To celebrate this new release, I’m offering a special gift when you order Myths, Moons, and Mayhem by the end of the day on Friday, Oct. 13: seven of my paranormal and speculative stories collected into an ebook I’m calling Chance & Possibility: Seven Fantastical Tales of Gay Desire.
Chance & Possibility is an eclectic selection of stories previously published in multi-author anthologies and my mixed-genre collection Falling Hard: Stories of Men in Love. They range from sweet fairy tale romances to scorching hot tentacle erotica. In its pages, you’ll find fantasy, sci-fi, and paranormal stories, and you’ll meet:
- an unemployed journalist whose sentient iPhone hooks him into rescuing stray cats—and leads him to love
- a college student who falls in love under the full moon of the Jewish harvest festival, Sukkot, but finds that his new boyfriend shies from his touch when the moon wanes
- a professional horticulturalist who develops a more-than-scientific interest in a strange new plant he’s been assigned to care for
Chance & Possibility: Seven Fantastical Tales of Gay Desire isn’t available to buy anywhere. The only way to get it now is by ordering Myths, Moons, and Mayhem at your preferred store, then forwarding the receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll send your choice of a mobi (for Kindle) or epub (for all other e-readers) this weekend.

Excerpt from “Close Encounter of the Three-way Kind” by Rob Rosen in Myths, Moons, and Mayhem
Summary: In this quirky comedy, aliens arrive from another galaxy, but they’re more interested in consensual exploration than invasion. Alien probing never felt so good!
As for the aliens, once they demonstrated their military might and then informed us of their plans, we only ever had verbal contact with them. Naturally, rumors immediately began to spread as to what they looked like. I, personally, was hoping for the little-green-men scenario to pan out, as it was high time to add to our rather boring pallet of white, black, brown, red, and yellow. Though I hoped the green didn’t also come with neck bolts and fangs, or wrapped up in mummy bandages.
What I wasn’t counting on, however, was a firsthand encounter.
Or a first-cock encounter, as was the case.
I’d been standing naked in my bedroom, casually stroking a fat boner while I spied on my new German neighbor through a gap in my blinds. Hans didn’t believe in rolling up his shades or wearing clothes when he was home. With a small set of binoculars, I could easily watch him walk around his house, his hefty schlong swaying back and forth as he absentmindedly tugged on his foreskin and chomped on a handful of Snickers bars—also of the mini variety.
And that’s when I spotted it.
Out of the corner of my eye—well, a corner of the lens, actually—I noticed a pinprick of bright light. I set the binoculars down and looked to my left, out to my backyard. My heart began a fast kerthump as I watched in stunned amazement while a small silver craft floated down and then silently landed. One minute it was a blip in the autumn blue sky, the next a parking violation.
It seemed that E.T., apparently, didn’t feel the need to phone ahead. Still, I slipped on my robe, waited a few seconds for my prick to go semi, and then nervously walked outside. Sure I was scared as hell, but equally just as curious. So much speculation had been swirling about as to their appearance, and I was about to find out the truth, even if it killed me.
“Oh, please don’t kill me,” I mumbled to myself as the door to the ship slid up.
Out of the inner light he appeared, dressed all in white and, much to my surprise, very unalien looking. In fact, he looked quite a bit like Matt Lauer from The Today Show, except with noticeably more hair on his head. Thankfully, there were no bolts, fangs, or bandages to be seen.
“Trick or treat, earthling?” he said, a broad smile plastered across his handsome face as he emerged from his ship and walked over, his hand held out in greeting.
“Oh, um, yeah. That’s, you know…well, never mind,” I replied, my own hand trembling as I shook his. “Welcome to, uh, New Jersey.”
He looked around my leaf-littered yard, his head in a tilt. “What was the old Jersey like?”
I laughed, despite the circumstances, which, if not dire, were at least pretty odd at best. “A lot less polluted and not as much traffic, I suppose,” I answered, releasing his hand as I stood back to get a good look at him. And, my, he did indeed look good. “So, what brings you to my humble home? If you were looking for Manhattan, you missed it by a couple of exits.”
Again he smiled with those dazzling pearly whites. “I was scanning this area when my sensors picked up a certain heat level I was seeking to study.”
I glanced at my outdoor Jacuzzi, and said, “Well, it is heated, but I bet your technology goes way beyond blowing bubbles.”
He laughed, emitting a deep rumble that ran up and down my spine and sent my balls swaying. “No, earthling. The heat my ship sensed came from there.” He pointed to the center of my robe, which he quickly unknotted and parted. I could feel the blush spread rapidly up my neck and across my cheeks as he waved his slender finger at my flaccid penis. “Before I arrived, I believe this area was in a state of arousal. I seek to study this.”
I closed my robe up tight. “You want to study my dick?”
He nodded his head.
