Welcome to the Blog!

Tony Cavanagh welcomes you to his world of books (first and foremost!) and to the things he loves best on the other pages here. After six blogging years, I’m having something of a reorganisation and culling many old posts and associated images to make room for new things. This blog home page offers more information about my books and will also signpost additions to the ‘Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics‘ page (see Index) and also to the ‘Gay Expression‘ page – these being the themes which run through my first three books. Purchasing books helps to support the blog, and most readers rate them well!

Before we get there, there is a fourth book published October 2017 and a fifth half completed. So let’s start with the most recent offering:

A ‘reluctantly’ gay boy, cast out of his community for discovering his sexuality… can he find the true meaning of his life and his true love, or does fate have more s*** in store for him? Best classified as ‘Romantic Fiction’, I think, the book explores Native American beliefs as his shape-shifting ‘spirit guide’ struggles to make things right for him. Darker influences are also at work, however, and his life holds many surprises and disappointments before the final dénouement. Click on the cover for a link to buy direct, and support this blog… e-versions of all the books are also available. And, if  you must, because they don’t pay the author much, there is Amazon…

Three earlier books, written in the first person, chart the life and times of a British teen relocated to the USA who quickly finds another like-minded exiled Brit with whom he shares a love of acrobatic sports and, very shortly after, with whom he shares his gay love. Surrounded by a caring group of sporting (and mainly gay) friends, things nevertheless start to go badly wrong and there are clearly people around who do not wish them well. They discover a life as a touring show… and also a future life as gay dads, but there is much else waiting in store for them before they can be ‘happy ever after’…

Notice too that these covers combine locations of the stories combined with acrobatic images and some Chinese characters: the significance of these emerges early in the first book.

So there we are – welcome. Scroll down for the latest posts, or cross to the other pages for Fitness, Acrobatic and Gymnastics images –  a lifestyle we enthusiastically support – or to Gay Expression for  occasional musings and images related to the gay lifestyle. You will not find porn here.

This blog is also for guys who admire other guys who put real effort into their physical development. On that ‘fitness’ page I encourage you to think how good the fitness lifestyle is for you. The rules are simple:

  1. Make an effort to improve your own fitness this year (you’re NEVER too old);
  2. Enjoy the pictures (and comment please on what you see, and feel free to ‘FOLLOW’);
  3. Buy a book (preferably, all of them) to support the continuation of the blog!

AND: you can even try combining the reading with your workout!

The blog is essentially G-rated; the earlier books get a little explicit from time to time about gay guys doing what gay guys do – you don’t have to be gay to enjoy them – just be gay-friendly. 

And now, as they used to say on the old TV game shows: “Come on Down!”⇓ or alternatively Sideways (to the other pages!)

*** Many pictures  on all of the pages… like the one on the left illustrating what we love to do… will sticky-2-readenlarge if you click on them ***

40 More Pictures For You

On the Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics page (https://tonycavanagh.com/fitness-acrobatics-and-gymnastics/) I’ve placed two new sets… Firstly a series of fit guys “Up Against The Wall” – not, in this case, the ‘wall’ you hit after that final struggling repetition in your weights programme, but actual walls! Well, why not – I had the pictures… Then there is a session of’ ‘Group Therapy’ to entertain you… gymnasts, boxers, wrestlers, swimmers, street workout dudes, gym rats… all experiencing the camaraderie of doing it together.

Meanwhile, over on the Gay Expression page (https://tonycavanagh.com/gay-expression/), five images from 1946 when being gay was most usually a  criminal offence, but with a sympathetic photographer some magic could be worked… followed by some modern ‘couples/love’ images.

Enjoy.

Then please, when the rain sets in as it just has here, relax with a book – preferably one of mine, which explore gay, love and fitness themes in different ways and chuck in some adventure and surprises. Click on the covers for more information!

Training, Wrestling … and Loving

Big updates today! On the Gay Expression page (https://tonycavanagh.com/gay-expression/), some simple amusements on ‘being gay’ followed by a dozen new loving couples (with a surprise ending). Then I’ve put 20 interesting ‘training’ images up on the Fitness (etc) page (https://tonycavanagh.com/fitness-acrobatics-and-gymnastics/): all with a touch of the unusual (for example, eccentric equipment, unusual spaces, surprising positions…) – and that is followed by shots from a superb wrestling bout between Serge and Mikle. Enjoy!!

“A Good Raed” (sic)

Consider:

Culod yuo raed taht? Came to me via Facebook, as many strange things do.

I am pleased to report that you do not have to be one of the 55/100 to read my books! You do however have to put with a little Cherokee language (in Let The Future Find Me), and conversations with an assortment of spirits in all of them. Add a dash of gay love (first three especially), lost gay love (the fourth), sport, circus and adventure (all of them). You might find them easier than the above! Click on covers for links to purchase. e-versions of all of them are available.

I count on your support to keep this blog alive.

Most posted pictures now go on to the ‘Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics’ (https://tonycavanagh.com/fitness-acrobatics-and-gymnastics/) or ‘Gay Expression’ (https://tonycavanagh.com/gay-expression/)  pages of the blog, with updates several times a week on the former, so go explore. Just to whet the appetite, I’ll add a couple here, illustrating our main themes:

Another Torrent of Pics Added

The stock of images I have stored ready to share with you guys seems to get larger all the time, so I’ve had another purge as it was a day off today… 3 sets of 20 added to the Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics blog (https://tonycavanagh.com/fitness-acrobatics-and-gymnastics/) page today in three categories.

There’s an additional picture for each category here, just to whet your appetite:

First, Wrestling – Back by Popular Request!

Secondly, A Handbalancing Selection:

And Thirdly: Guys who are Clearly Satisfied with the Bodies they’ve Built:

So, that’s actually 63 images altogether, free to a good home! As a reward, I would LOVE for you to buy a book or two, and hopefully recommend the following – just click on covers for links to publishers, or search the usual outlets which will include e-books.

Actually, I’ve stuck one more picture on the Gay Expression (https://tonycavanagh.com/gay-expression/) page too… but it’s probably not what you expect to see there…
