Today’s guest is Mann Ramblings, whose gay sci-fi erotic romance Priest and Pariahs is available now!
About Priest and Pariahs:
When I began brainstorming, the first book in the series, The Luxorian Fugitive, was supposed to be little more than a personal fantasy on the page. A space freighter filled with hot guys traveling the universe, taking out the long trip’s boredom on one another in pairs or more. I’m good with that. LOL
But as I started plotting, it became far more. The cast developed into something more complex. It expanded into a wayward family — somewhat incestuous — but an extended family nonetheless. The men on board are ostracized through various means, an experience a gay man of my age could understand. The world of the Santa Claus gave me a home to explore the theme that still exists, even if our own world learns to be more accepting.
The size of the crew turned out to be fertile ground to tell many stories that were far more than the lurid dreams that sparked them. Each book is a stand-alone, with connections to previous installments. I’ve only touched on where I can make the men travel, and there are many more potential destinations. I hope I never tire of telling their tales.
Now we’re up to book 3, Priest & Pariahs, and I’d like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to introduce my men to your fans. I hope they enjoy reading the exploits of the Ship Logs of the Santa Claus as much as I did creating them.
Costa McQuillen is a Pariah, a para-human with tech empathic abilities who has escaped from Earth, where being para-human is illegal— — nd marks him for extermination. Arrogant and standoffish, Costa is unable to trust anyone, but is willing to risk everyone’s safety to reach the planet Omoikane. His best solution: gaining passage on board the Santa Claus.
Arbor Kittering, the crew’s newest coding tech, is a medical oddity. With the technologies available to prevent birth defects, Arbor’s status as a dwarf brings the kind of attention he could happily do without. Having spent a short time in prison for data hacking and falsifying government files doesn’t help. The Santa Claus is his last chance at a new start, if he can decipher the strange malfunctions plaguing the ship.
Priest, the Santa Claus’ Head Pilot, is a bit of a scoundrel. Perpetually single, Priest is attracted to Costa for his exotic looks, and to Arbor for his unique qualities. In truth, he’d like to have both, but it’s clear such a thing isn’t in the cards. Now Priest needs to make a choice, before it’s too late.
About Mann Ramblings:
Like many gay men, when Mann Ramblings grew up, there weren’t any heroes he could relate to. The world held him back while he tried futilely to hide the real person inside. So much has changed since those hollow days. He finally found his voice, the voice that says it’s all right to revel in the so-called inappropriate joys, laughs, and loves that storm inside a man’s head. It took a long time to find that courage and now that it’s here, he plans to use it well.
