New Trinity Blacio - Masters of the Cats: Collaring the Saber-Tooth

I am so thrilled to be working with Trinity Blacio again on a brand new, hot series.  She is one of the most creative writers I know. Who else even writes about vampire aliens and saber-tooth shape-shifters in polyamorous relationships where every woman has three hot men? I love her!

Blacio brings her unique blend of paranormal ménage to the realm of vampires and shape-shifters with this new series, which describes a world where every woman has three masters to love her. The first book in the series, Collaring the Saber-Tooth, stars feline shifter Maya, a hot matriarch to a den of cat shifters.

Here’s an excerpt:
“Light years away, the Tetraheros came together. Their creation, the Cometegerace, is on the verge of extinction, even with the female companions provided to them throughout the years. Meanwhile, one lone rogue has tried to wipe out the feline shifter population on Earth. There was only one solution: The Cometedge Pact. Three warriors are bound to every female, connecting two separate races through a sense of duty, blood, sex and love.”

The first chapter of Blacio’s second book in the series, Hard Limits, is featured as a bonus at the end of the novel.

Trinity said her inspiration comes from her favorite romance writers. “I have read many series. Christine Feehen’s “Carpathian” series and Sherrilyn Kenyon’s “Dark Hunter” series are two that I really enjoy. Both of these wonderful ladies gave me the inspiration to create my world. Shifters and vampires have been a favorite of read mine for years and I figured why not bring all these begins together to create my world.”

Trinity Blacio is the best-selling author of 30 erotic romance novels. She has been writing professionally for a decade and her work covers the spectrum of dark fantasy and erotic ménage. Trinity lives in Welllington, OH, with her two children, Cheyenne and Rudy and her two cats, Smokey and Missy. She loves to hear from readers and fellow writers and runs a Yahoo group:

Who is Katie Holmes?

RAB just published Who is Katie Holmes? An Unauthorized Biography by Marc Shapiro, the first post-divorce bio of this surprisingly independent woman.

Who is Katie Holmes we all wondered when she defied all odds and stealthy left her older, richer more powerful Hollywood husband with her celebrity daughter in tow arriving in New York City to welcome arms, and a starring role on Broadway.  Where did she get that independent streak?  How did we under-estimate her?

Who is Katie Holmes? fills in the blanks.  It tells the classic Hollywood story of small town girl who comes to tinsel town, ultimately fulfills her every fantasy and discovers that there is a price to be paid for getting everything you desire.

Who is Katie Holmes? is more than another 'true Hollywood story.' It is the story of talent, tenacity and the will to succeed on her own terms. Katie Holmes speaks softly but, when pressed to the wall, she has proven that she can wield a big stick. Alternately insightful, dramatic and heartfelt, Who is Katie Holmes? is a straightforward look at the struggles and setbacks that only a person of character and compassion has the strength to overcome. Katie Holmes’ story is ultimately one of triumph and redemption - A true happy ending.

The Magic Behind Warlock Masters

By Donald Weise, Editor-In Chief, Magnus

I've been following Domingo Rhodes work for years and I am so glad to feature his amazingly hot work at Magus. When his collection of BDSM Warlock stories came in, I knew we had to publish it.

Rhodes writes some of the hottest man sex I know. It's beyond just erotic; the always explicit scenes and the fantastic worlds in which they play out set him apart as a writer of erotic fiction. His stories feature one hot coupling, and then some, after the next, from start to finish, to the point where you're left wondering how his characters don't collapse in exhaustion, but at the same time grateful they don't. But it's more than the sex alone. Rhodes also writes some of the most well-crafted sex stories out there. Add to that the fact that he's brilliant at master/slave dynamics. I don't know who will be more turned on: sadists or masochists, or maybe just anyone who loves their erotica out on the edge. I'm thrilled to be bringing out his first fiction collection at last.

In these supernatural erotic stories of dominance and submission, readers enter the forbidden, no-holds-barred worlds of warlock sex masters and the male slaves who dutifully serve and obey their every command. No order is refused, no sex act too outrageous. These wickedly sadistic warlocks push their insatiable young slaves to their sexual limits—and beyond. Warlock Masters is steamy erotic fiction sure to arouse the sadist or masochist in anyone.

But don't take my word for it.  See what Samuel Delany said about this collection:
"Four wonderfully inventive tales, as only Domingo Rhodes could write them, that appeal to the darkness within us all. Descend into the marvelous homoerotic and mysterious worlds of magic and unbridled sex. And enjoy—if you dare!" —Samuel R. Delany

 So please, like the collection on Amazon, and tell your friends to follow this hot new author.  There’s a 20% off discount if you order directly from our website at through March 31st.

A Really Important Book

Not every book we publish is going to be sexy or hot or even exciting.  This is one of those books that is just important. 

I did not know that the rate of prostate cancer development was twice as high for gay couples, and I honestly hadn't thought about what it would be like to be a gay man with prostate cancer until Don Weise, our Editor in Chief of Magnus, told me about this book.  And then I  knew we had to publish it.

Every gay man should know that this book exists at an affordable price.  Hopefully, he'll never have to reference it.

The Essential Guide to Diagnosis, Treatment, and Recovery

Edited by Gerald Perlman, PhD

Breaking the silence around the special concerns and issues faced by gay men
diagnosed with prostate cancer, this new book explores the full spectrum
of experiences from diagnosis to recovery

March 8, 2013 – Riverdale Avenue Books/Magnus is proud to publish the first trade book on prostrate cancer for gay men.  “I was truly amazed that something like this did not already exist at an affordable price,” said Magnus Editor-in-Chief, Donald Weise.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among American men and the second leading cause of deaths in men, after lung cancer. Men have a one in six chance of diagnosis with the number doubling for gay couples. While biology between gay and heterosexual men is the same, cultural differences in the ways in which gay men and heterosexuals experience diagnosis, treatment, and recovery vary widely. Most urologists, support groups, and prostate cancer literature assume patients are heterosexual, leaving gay men to seek out reliable information particular to their needs on their own.

What Every Gay Man Needs to Know About Prostate Cancer provides gay men with the essential answers to important questions often left undiscussed, regarding anal intercourse, erections and ejaculate, as well as recovery time and expectations for future sexual activity after treatment and surgery.

Magnus Books editor in chief Don Weise says of the book, “When I first heard about the project, I immediately wanted to do it. I didn’t know a lot about prostate cancer, but I saw that there was almost nothing in print on the topic for gay men and their partners specifically. I felt I had to publish the book. The clinical information is essential reading for anyone diagnosed with prostate cancer, and the personal testimonials by gay men who have survived it are deeply moving and eye-opening. The book is also an ideal tool for healthcare professionals new to the topic of how prostate cancer affects gay men and who are looking for ways to assist their gay clients navigate their diagnosis and treatment.”

Editor Gerald Perlman, PhD has been a Supervisor of Psychotherapy at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, at Fordham, Pace, and Yeshiva Universities, and at the City University of New York. In his private practice in New York, Dr. Perlman specializes in individual and couples therapy.  For almost ten years (under the auspices of Malecare) he facilitated an ongoing, open-ended group for gay men who have been diagnosed with and/or treated for prostate cancer. He lives in New York.
