    New Gay Thriller Bugchaser Published

      I'd like to announce the publication of my book, Bugchaser, by Xynobooks.
      Bugchaser

      Synopsis

      Randall Hamilton craves crystal meth and sex of any variety. He's willing to do anything, go anywhere, meet anyone to sate his urges.

      Suffering through banging, moaning and screaming each night, Stevie and Maria Hundt, Hamilton's neighbors, contend with the hell that Hamilton has made of their lives. Until, Stevie and his pregnant wife can take no more.

      One month out of the Academy, Special Agent Alejandro Madrigal hates his assignment, the LAPD and the good old boys of the FBI. Single-handedly running the new Computer Support Services division in Los Angeles, Madrigal thinks he's found love cruising the nearby college campus restrooms. His name is Tad.

      Their worlds collide at the corner of 39th Street and Norton Avenue in the City of Angels. There the ghost of Elizabeth Short, the Black Dahlia, is resurrected with the discovery of the bisected body of a young gay man who quickly becomes known as the Gay Dahlia.

      Who is the copycat serial killer? And who is the next victim?

      Bugchaser is a taut suspense thriller written by a new master reminiscent of the great crime noir writers. For both gay and straight audiences, some material may not be suitable for all readers.

      Adult discretion is strongly advised.

          I've led a sheltered life.

          This is the first I've heard of this "gay thriller" genre.:smileyindifferent:

           

          (Not that there's anything wrong with that!:smileyvery-happy: )

            So, I've got the book.

             

            Two problems with it that I've noticed with Pubit! books before:

             

            1. the formatting kinda sucks -- not fatally, but annoyingly, and

             

            2. the pagination is waaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy off.  There's no way that this book has 818 pages, but that's what my Nook says.  When I hit the page button, the count goes "1/818, 1/818, 2/818, 4/818 ..." so ultimately it will reach 818/818 by counting what are probably between 200 and 300 pages.

             

            B&N should really do something about that.  :smileymad:

                Nope.:smileyindifferent:  I won't bite.

                Too easy.

                Well of course, you won't bite....That would make this a Paranormal Gay Thriller genre discussion.....

                No worries about that in the typical gay thriller:  you shouldn't be troubled with a lot of breeder character development. :smileywink:

                On behalf of all "breeder characters" everywhere, I take offense at the term...well..."breeder character".... 

                Also from ABthree

                ....the formatting kinda sucks -- not fatally, but annoyingly,

                On that, I just refuse to take the bait and comment....

                    You know that as breeder characters go, you're one of my favorites.  Does that get me any points at all?  :smileyhappy:
