Featured Book of the Month:

Robert DeMarco: Live Gay or Die Lying

Rafe Haze: "The Next" 

Dubbed “the gay Rear Window,” The Next is a raw, snarky, no-holds-barred romantic suspense novel of a man stuck in his Manhattan apartment who thinks he’s identified a gruesome crime across the courtyard. It’s less a whodunit and more of a suspenseful how’s-he-gonna-get-‘em plot, slathered with a large, creamy dollop of romance.

Unlike Rear Window, the protagonist in The Next isn’t bound to his apartment by a broken leg in a cast, but rather by a self-induced, torturous psychological handcuffing, and the novel, of course, chronicles his journey to this freedom as much as the capturing of the bogey.

The second biggest difference is that The Next doesn’t shy away from the eroticism. At all. Hawt men abound. 
Where to buy

How it works:

  • We consider all kinds of literary works for publication: from essays to love poems, from coming-out stories to steamy erotic texts. With the growth of this website, we will introduce categories to make it easier for our readers to find the texts they like.
  • This is not a blog, nor a forum / group for endless (and often fruitless) discussions, but intended as an online collection of texts written by aspiring and established gay authors who want to show their talent as poets, literary reviewers, and writers of prose and essays related to gay topics.
  • Gay Literature is an endeavor by a New York publishing house. Due to the sensitive nature of the material to be published, we cannot allow automatic and instant online publishing. Please use one of our forms to submit your texts, links, reviews etc. If appropriate, we will try to publish your works within 2-3 business days. Make sure that your texts are carefully proofread by yourself and others. We will ignore material of poor linguistic quality. Do not submit material, if you don't accept our terms and conditions (see "About us" section).
  • You keep the copyright of your published works, and you can ask us to remove your texts from this website at any time; simply write us an e-mail.
