New Release Celebration: Myths, Moons, and Mayhem


Title: Myths, Moons, and Mayhem: Paranormal Gay Menage and Erotic Romance

Publisher: Sexy Little Pages

Editor: Dale Cameron Lowry

Contributors: Clare London, Rebecca Buchanan, Carl Redlum, Elizabeth Coldwell, Dale Cameron Lowry, Morgan Elektra, Greg Kosebjorn, Rhidian Brenig Jones, and Rob Rosen

I have a confession to make: I read smut. A lot of smut. I also write smut, though I haven't published very much of it.

That changed with the release of Myths, Moons, and Mayhem. A new anthology from Sexy Little Pages, it contains nine paranormal menage romances ranging from the ghostly to the magical to the -- well -- mythic.

When the submissions call for MMM popped up, I knew that I wanted to send in something ... I just wasn't sure what to write. I knew at least one of the characters would be Pagan, a practitioner of a pre-Christian religion. The question was, which tradition? So many to choose from! I debated and dithered and plotted for a week, jotting down and then rejecting various ideas. Luciferian witches? Lithuanian nobles fighting off Crusaders? A priest of Ra finding adventure and happiness with two Roman soldiers? Fae worldwalkers seeking treasure and romance as they move between parallel worlds?

All of those ideas sounded awesome, but I was working against a word limit and time constraints. I finally settled on a story based on ancient Cretan spirituality. "The Secret of the Golden Cup" centers around three men: Grover Benson, an introverted professor of linguistics; and Dominic Hartley and Steffan Dunbar, a married couple who are secretly magic users and devotees of the ancient Goddesses of Crete. When Grover discovers a long lost Minoan cup, he unwittingly becomes the focus of malevolent forces ... who are determined to have Grover and the cup for themselves.

Sound fun?

Want to read eight more magical, mysterious menage romances?

Then go pick up a copy of Myths, Moons, and Mayhem. Read. Enjoy. And come back in a few days, as I run interviews with each of the contributors in turn. :)

Rebecca Buchanan is the editor of the Pagan literary ezine Eternal Haunted Summer. She is also the editor-in-chief of Bibliotheca Alexandrina. She thinks it is incredibly unfair that she must work for a living rather than being able to read all day. In her next life, she would like to be a library cat.
