Sunday's Safe Word Shelf: Invitation Only Series by Patricia Logan

Red #1
Red Tacoma, club promoter, is just about ready to blow the Detroit, Michigan, club scene and start over in Austin, Texas, the live music capital of America where his talents can be put to better use. After a nasty break up with a casual boyfriend, he decides the timing is perfect and heads south.

Red’s not a nice guy, though. In fact, he’s a jerk, and he takes pride in getting the job done and letting no one get in his way. Of course, some might call it arrogance, but Red doesn’t care what other people think, not even his boss at his new club gig.

Phoenix, a big bad Dom from Los Angeles, has agreed to move out to Westburg, Texas, with his husband Wade Rubashkin, and run Zachary Teak’s new BDSM club, Invitation Only. But getting a new club ready is always a challenge, one that is fraught with interesting problems, and as always with the Doms and subs of the new club, it is one filled with hilarity and smokin’ hot, sexy men.

Trask #2
Trask Jacobs has a past life that he’s desperate to forget. He’s been running from it for years and crossed the country to get away from it. Putting the past behind, he’s gone on to make a new life, obtaining a position as an executive chef at Invitation Only, the hottest new BDSM club in Austin, Texas. All he wants to do is hide in the back of a kitchen and be left alone to find peace.

Valentine Kaporov is a gorgeous professional Dom at the club and the minute he’s hired, the Russian transplant becomes one of Invitation Only’s biggest draws. What no one knows it that Valentine has a horrific past and has lost the only one he’s ever loved. After a startling meeting with the club’s stunning chef, Valentine begins to wonder about putting his life back together. Will it be possible to lure the stunning chef out of the kitchen and into his own personal playroom and will Trask be able to resist the gorgeous stud who wants to once again put him on display?

Heath #3
Heath is the popular new Dom at Invitation Only, Austin’s answer to BDSM club goers. The rancher turned Dom has an unsurpassed way with rope. As Red Tacoma, the club’s promoter thinks up new and exciting events for the club’s members, a sexy young drag queen approaches him and makes a suggestion to help the club break new ground.

Micah Turner, the neurotic young bartender at Invitation Only has only one thing on his mind these days, surviving his insanely jealous boyfriend Greg’s violent addiction. When he volunteers them to star in a new drag show at the club, all hell breaks loose and it’s up to the club’s sexy Doms to keep the queens in line.

Heath has never been attracted to uber feminine males but something about Micah the handsome twink drag queen, pushes all of his buttons in all the right places. As the club’s new entertainment increases in popularity, Heath may find it necessary to tame the wild young stallion and teach him a thing or two.

Wyatt #4

The Wandering I by PM Barnes

The Wandering I, is a poetic and visual journey, through the stages of self discovery.
The stages have been broken down into three sections, titled Chagrin, Angst and Temper. Each section explores the complexities of trying to understand the purpose of ones life.
From the confusions and failure associated with the onset of all personal journeys, to the awakening and revelry, of finally finding a groove that fits your being. Those growing pains and the subsequent "golden days", are played out within these pages.

Author Bio:
I'm a poet turned fiction writer, who also happens to be an avid reader. I've had a library card for as long as I can remember and more books than you can fit into a studio apartment.

I have hosted multiple events for poets, musicians and storytellers. I feel most at home with artist because of their quest to have a more profound understanding of things.

As an author I find it hard to escape the perspective of being "the reader", the observer. In this way, I am able to enjoy the stories as they unfold from my hands. It also means that I am very conscious of the emotions that I cultivate in my readers. I know how to provide suspense and build relationships that bind you to the characters.

What I really love about stories surrounding the post-apocalypse and specifically zombie tales, is that it gets to the crux of all of our fears. It speaks to our desire to keep anarchy at bay and of how scared we are at the depth of our own depravity.
My main goal as a writer is to entertain. That being said, if you learn anything new about yourself or the world around you in the process of reading my work, then I feel like I have succeeded in providing you with something deeper.
