Lemon Cream Soda - Something my characters and I have in common

I can't even remember when it was, back in the nineties I suppose, I worked at the mall, and there was a shop that sold Italian cream sodas. 

To Die For. 

So when I got this prompt, that was the thing that stood out in my mind... 

Lemon Italian Cream sodas. 


The Old Soda Shop 
An M/M Romance by Lee Brazil 



Former college roommates Matt and Sam have a history.
Will a chance encounter in the street lead to a second chance at love?


Years ago, art student Matt Gilray's world turned on its axis when his lover Sam rejected him at their favorite hangout. He'd spent the years since learning to be a businessman and an artist, letting go, forgetting a love affair that had brought him more pain than joy in the end.

A last minute realization that his college fuck buddy had turned into a lover wasn’t enough to stop business student Sam Balantyne from chasing his dreams. When the dreams runs out, Sam returns home and buys the derelict soda shop where they used to hang out. He wasn't looking for a second chance; he just wanted to enjoy a memory.

In the process of “freeing himself to pursue his dreams”, 

had Sam tarnished them beyond recovery?

Odd Man Out Hits It at ARE!

Thrilled to announce that Odd Man Out
the finale of the Pulp Friction 2013 event, 

has hit the best seller lists! 

It's debuted on the ARE list at #25 today- that's sitewide! 

Commemorating the moment with a feeble crop and paste
 (Hey, even that much is stretching
my tech ability!)


ODD MAN OUT 


Chance Dumont. Marcus Prater. Zachary Carmichael. Wick Templeton. Friends through circumstance, brothers by choice.

After facing off with his personal demons, Wick shuts down, but he never anticipated how his impulsive off-the-grid vacation would affect the rest of his chosen brothers. No one can hurt you like someone you love.

Before they have time to work things out, the serial killer who has been targeting Atlanta’s gay community strikes close to home. Again. It’s enough to cause an all-hands meeting at Chances Are. But when one of the brothers fails to show, it becomes clear that the close connection the men have to the murder victims is no coincidence.

They've got the smarts, the weapons, and the willingness to do whatever it takes to find their missing brother—before it’s too late. What brought them together in the first place may just be that which tears them apart forever.


Four authors. Twenty books. One explosive finale.

Also available at Amazon and other ebook vendors. 

Be Yourself

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. ~e.e. cummings, 1955
