Dark Roast Press MM spotlight…

Dark Roast Press MM spotlight…

The words of our founder, Rhiannon Rhodes:

‘Dark Roast Press is an ePublisher with not only a GLBT focus but also with a thirst for the dark side of life. No, we will not abandon the "mainstream" road that the Erotica world has laid before us, but we have created a home for the kinks of life we like to keep secret.’

So it is no surprise that fully half of our Erotic Romance titles are either MM or have MM content. We were an MM publisher before it was hip, and you will love our flavor.

Mention must also be made of the Noah Ravenswood Series by Chris Newman. The seven volumes of the paranormal erotic adventures of a Wiccan sleuth defy easy classification, but contain many GLBT scenes and sub-plots. One client has married his transgender boyfriend and begun a family; another lesbian couple meet and bond during volume 2.


There’s a reason we are listed on GayCrawler and GayDemon!

Veterans Day/Remembrance Day repost: Semper Fi from Dark Roast Press!


“I’m heading up there tonight in my dress blues. So far, 15 of my fellow marine buddies are meeting me there, also in Uniform. I want to send the following message to Wall St and Congress:I didn’t fight for Wall St. I fought for America. Now it’s Congress’ turn.

My true hope, though, is that we Veterans can act as first line of defense between the police and the protester. If they want to get to some protesters so they can mace them, they will have to get through the Fucking Marine Corps first."

Dark Roast Press has 4 timely offerings in support of the Marines:

Our October releases: The Many Sides of Dark Roast Press

In October 2011 we had a total of eight new releases. They manifested in batches of four, and in each batch, we broke new ground as a publishing entity.

At the beginning of the month, even as we brought out the seventh and final volume of the Ravenswood series, a new series began-- and it is intended for all ages. Yes, it is adventure, yes it is horror, yes it is paranormal, yes it is romantic, but it is Not erotic.Get a taste of the world of Native American psychic Eli Janney, as he travels to the Old World at the behest of the spirits to save his sister's latest obnoxious boyfriend, in spite of himself, in Molly Colton's

Our erotic emphasis was upheld by the life-affirming work of Eva Hore, This internationally published Aussie author graced Dark Roast with a collection that will warm your heart, as well as parts 'down under'...

My own first novel, out at long last, represented the GLBT emphasis, as it is a light-hearted MMF paranormal set in the world of heavy metal music.

Shakti or succubus? Faithful spouse or figment of the imagination? Whatever she is, Rufus and Steen would not have made a grand success in their chosen profession, as the stars of the heavy metal band Virgen Steel, without Heidi. And they probably never would have gotten married - to each other, anyway...

And the soul- shivering conclusion to Noah Ravenswood's demon-hunting career tests the Wiccan investigator to the utmost, as he takes on an infernal plague in volume 7 --

It is certain to hook you on Chris Newman's unique mix of kinky erotica, adventure, horror, and the supernatural. All seven volumes are here at Dark Roast Press for you to savor.Then, as Halloween drew near, we did something we have never done before. We produced a seasonal anthology WITH NO ROMANCE!

The four selections in THE DARK SEASON all contain no-holds-barred sex, but the emphasis is instead upon erotic horror. It is an entirely new flavor, even as Chris Newman brings in zombies from the World of Uprising, and Angelia lets us see her Steam-punk abilities hitherto reserved for other presses...

With that we brought out another volume for the Young Adults, the second Supernatural Highway tale, The Journey, in which our heroEli manages to save the lives of his own sons, bring a crooked mortician to justice, and peace to the unquiet dead.

We brought out a contemporary erotic romance with a dash of FF from Victoria Cannon, the short and sweet Tania--

and finally a true 'happily ever after' paranormal from SM Bach where an inhibited heroine finally chooses to live her life, before it's too late!

All in all our October harvest of delicious Dark Roasted books for you has increased the scope of what you can experience through our supernatural, kinky, and romantic tales. We are ever closer to our goal, as stated by The Boss, Rhiannon Rhodes, of 'a little bit of everything to please anyone.'
