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 ***

Back in The USA

Street workout boys, I assume:

DISASTER!! I Need Cheering Up…

The publisher of my first three books, Melrose Press, has ceased trading. I have suspected for some time that they lost all interest in marketing their books – sales have dropped dramatically.

This means that ALL links from clicking on the covers of those three books in this blog are now useless, and the only place that the books can be obtained is from me.

They are asking me to receive most of the remaining copies – and pay for some of them! – with a very short deadline. With our current situation (just headed out to USA, back eventually to Portugal), and the books being in the UK, this represents something of a challenge, storage-wise. Maybe I need an agency there!

While I ponder what to do – not least removing all those links from the blog, amending the ‘sticky’ header at the top of the blog when you go to tonycavanagh.com, etc. etc., I must continue to promote book 4, whose publisher thankfully remains in existence (and is awaiting the next manuscript, if I ever get it finished [“Known By The Tracks We Leave” is the likely title] …

Let The Future Find Me is, in fact, the most accessible to a general audience, shortest, and cheapest! Christmas is coming, if you are short of ideas for presents! This is the story of an outcast lad (who happens to be gay but that is not the point of the story) who sets out in search of the rest of his life…

In the meantime, if you should want any of the other three books, please message me on gymacrobat@gmail.com and I’ll get something organised. Most likely I am going to offer a ‘fire sale’ with significant price reductions, to make shipping costs from UK more attractive.

In the meantime, I console myself (and you I hope) with some more images of couples with something to share!

Not sure that I fully understand that one. And now, getting undressed for the occasion…

Getting The Act Together

…in various ways! (And picking up from the last two images on the previous post). And it doesn’t have to be two gay guys enjoying each other (although most of them here are doing exactly that). But first, rehearsing…

…but, returning to the main theme…

Now that I really like combining it with exercise! Nice jumper, next:

Hmmm. Hands tied behind back? He still seems very keen!

(OK, I’m making an assumption about those two…)

Another athletic idea!

There you go. 30 images in that selection: hope you like…

Just Ordinary Guys

Most ‘ordinary’ guys these days take some care over their appearance. I don’t offer you skinny wrecks here, but guys looking good in their ‘natural’ state rather than working out. Hope you like.

(OK, that’s clearly not ‘natural environment’… but the body fits the description!)

(What HORRIBLE wallpaper! No professional photographer would use that background, I’m sure…)

(LOVE the ‘trail’…)

And finally (for today)…
