Skin by Christian Baines

Skin by Christian Baines

I must warn you, give you a heads up, pronounce to the world and the great beyond….this story is N.O.T. a romance. Skin is a general fiction piece of literature with queer lead characters. There are sexual acts on many of the pages, just for the purpose of having sex, nothing more, possibly less.

Skin follows the lives of three humans and a flamboyantly charming but deadly voodoo spirit. There really isn’t a lot to be said without giving the story away or accidentally throwing out a hint. Just know that you’re mind is going to be thoroughly tricked. Christian takes it for a wild ride of guesses, assumptions, pain, hurt, awe, amazement, and very tumultuous feelings.

We also get to see humanity at it’s most basic. There is no glitz or glamour. We’re walking the back streets of New Orleans. Hearing slang worlds/phrases, vulgarity at every turn, racism, bigotry, homophobia, lewd/crude/brash behavior, raw, humanity.

Christian writes, orchestrates, and conducts this story brilliantly.

Get ready for the trip of the year…..

TJ is Laura’s brother. He had no ambition to follow in his father’s footsteps and the moment he could leave their small town and make something of himself he did just that; and more.

Zoe decides she’s ready to meet Mr. Right and joins a dating app. This is where she meets Tom. He’s smart, sophisticated, funny, and as a bonus, wealthy. They haven’t exchanged pictures of each other because they wanted to make sure their personalities worked together first.

New Game, Start by CS Poe

Edgar is the pure definition of introvert. He wakes up, eats breakfast, showers, puts on a clean pair of pajamas, sets up his work station in the living room and gets to it. Day in and day out . He hardly leaves his NYC apartment. His guilty pleasure in life is following the handsome, funny, and talented Walter; a gamer extraordinaire.

Walter sends out a tweet asking who is going to be at the gamer convention in NYC right before Christmas and Edgar can’t help himself but to respond. Then his phone makes an unfamiliar noise and he realizes that Walter has responded to his tweet!! Soon they find themselves having daily conversations and making plans to meet up when Walter arrives in NYC.

All could come crushing down thanks to a delayed subway, lack of cell service, and Edgar behind on work.

Celebrating isn’t on his agenda. He’s about to pass a bar when he hears tapping on the glass and see Michael on the other side. Michael filmed a few of the video depositions for the law firm and Brad had noticed him.

Michael is in love with everything Christmas. He plans and schedules many events for himself and his housemates. Now he’s dragging Brad along with them and Brad finds himself having more fun than he’s had in years. He’s finally letting things go.

Until a big misunderstanding pulls these two apart and Brad takes the time to just look at the world he’s created for himself and see if it’s really what he wants or if he’d rather have the spice of Michael in his life too.
