BeWrite Books gay romance author Jay Mandal can never be accused of walking when he can run. His energetic and imaginative promotional efforts have made him one of the most popular writers of gay fiction in the UK, frequently at the dizzy heights of Amazon sales charts for the genre.

His books are among BeWrite's four-figure top sellers, and The Dandelion Clock alone has recently been checked out of local libraries more than 100 times.

Best Gay Romance 2010 – ISBN 978-1573443777, published by Cleis Press – is out now, featuring a short story by Jay, The Food of Love. Another Jay short, Chiaroscuro, was published in their 2009 anthology.

Apart from their sheer literary quality and sensitive treatment of the subject matter, frequent publication of short stories and poetry, and regular contributions to major gay print media has been key to the success of Jay's BeWrite Books novels and anthologies.

Said Jay: "In the last twelve days, I’ve written one piece of flash fiction; a poem; a 1,000-word short story; and added over 3,000 words to my novel-in-progress. I don’t know how long this creative burst will last so I’m trying to make the most of it."

And that, folks, is the way to do it. NM
