Its been a busy few weeks. First of all there was the Leather pride week in Amsterdam. It was also the Mr Europe leather Contest with the winner going on to compete at IML in Chicago at the end of May.  There were some beautiful men competing but as we all know, it isn’t just about the LOOK, it’s about brains and attitude.

The party after was pretty awesome! The contest was helix The Church and the ‘After party’ was at Dirty Dicks were yours truly partied till 8am ! Yep the old mans still got it! As always I worked, and worked on The Caretakers: Zander’s Place. This book especially is a real challenge because its the first BDSM novel I’ve ever done. TC will be reviewed by the public and Zander’s Place, will be the first installment open  to reviewers and bloggers.  I am also offering a FREE download of Zander’s Place for a limited time only so get your copy now!

I also got to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of The Cuckoos Nest bar which my partner and i founded in 1982. It was a great party and it went on till 5am! I once again stayed up till 8am. Amsterdam keeps me young, thats why its always been my… spiritual home. IMG_6698

An d now after  a long haul The Caretakers: Zander’s Place is finally in the final draft before it goes to the editor. ZP is about a young man who wants to preserve the old guard way of life by getting the fetish and kink community to live and work together and this is about his search of getting members of the old guard to work together to make Zander’s vision become a reality.

Meanwhile Island of Lost Men is the latest story of two rival rugby teams who find themselves stranded on a deserted island. Straight men vs Gay men, Egos, sexual tension and fights for leadership make this and intriguing read right up to a rather explosive ending.


While in Amsterdam I visited The Underground which is Amsterdam’s newest fetish store carrying a range of goods is now the second store in Amsterdam to carry several of my titles. It’s very exciting! First Vrolijk Boekhandel on Paleisstraat and now GUnderground on Spuistraat are carrying my books. Thrilling for me.

My new year’s resolution for 2014 was to produce more. I produced plenty not only in terms of e-books but hard digital prints as well! I’m learning more and more about the business and I promise to keep you up to snuff. Learn as I learn!

2015 is going to be awesome in terms of self promotion, starting with my own Wikipedia page. Help!

As many of you know, I am not a fan of the ‘holidays’. Will and I enjoyed a great prime rib at the Braserie on Thanksgiving. Now if we can avoid the rest…..

Meanwhile, if I don’t get back to you before hand,

HAPPY HOLIDAYS and a great 2014!

And  enjoy my latest offerings for you my fans.

With Respect
