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 ***

‘Genuine’ Gay Love? Oh, and ‘Haircut, Anyone?’

Yes, no, maybe! I try to avoid images which are obviously ‘staged’, but whenever two guys are photographed cuddling and kissing in their bed, one has to ask in what capacity their photographer was present! Anyway, another bundle of twosomes awaits your inspection on the Gay Expression page (https://tonycavanagh.com/gay-expression/).

On another tack altogether, we came across this image of topless hairdressers in (I think) Singapore. Do you agree that we should start a campaign to have them take on us guys as clients too? Even if one of them is called ‘Eva’?

“Sore Today, Strong Tomorrow”

Actually, I was feeling pretty sore (in a different way) when I posted previously. The message there is important if we are to continue our ‘relationship’.

Meanwhile, applying the ‘gym bunny’ interpretation of that inspirational title, I have posted a double helping (40 pix) of guys evidently impressed by their own achievements in the gym. Here’s an extra to get you going: the rest are on Fitness (Etc) page 2 (https://tonycavanagh.com/fitness-acrobatics-and-gymnastics-2/)

Important Notice: An Appeal

Now then! I hope that, at least, got your attention.

I have never made a secret of the fact that the purpose of this blog is to promote my written work. An average of 1000 folks are ‘hitting’ this blog every day. If even just one of those people each day heeded the plea to buy one book to support a struggling writer, sales would dramatically improve.

I’m looking at other ways to promote the books, but this blog will not necessarily continue if things do not look up, sales-wise. Click on any of the covers below for more information: the fourth book (‘Let The Future Find Me’) is the shortest, best and cheapest of the lot (£8.99, €9.99) and a good place to start. There is a fifth on the way but I am losing interest in finishing it if it ends up costing me more to promote than it earns… They’re not that bad!

I’m counting on YOU.

Bear-ly Believable

I cannot resist sharing this piece of news which has just reached us from Llanwrtyd Wells in Mid Wales, the nearest “town” to our cottage. For several weeks, visitors (and my parents who go there a lot) have been moaning about apparently unnecessary traffic control lights outside the Cambrian Woolen Mill which is just outside the town on the main road. There appeared to be no logical reason for their being there.

Turns out there really was no logical reason for them being there. However, the reason they were there is so bizarre…

For the last 15 years, a seven-foot high carved wooden bear has stood outside the mill by the side of the road. I have no idea why – I suppose we should have asked. However, some woman driving past appears to have decided it was a real bear, panicked, and crashed her car. The Welsh government ordered the removal of the bear pending an investigation. The bear was tipped over and hidden in some undergrowth. Lights to control alternate-direction traffic were installed, though it is not clear why.

Now, after several weeks, some TV exposure and a lot of local campaigning in support of the creature, the Welsh government has decided that the bear can be reinstated, albeit a little further away from the side of the road, just in case someone else takes it into their head that it is a real bear…

All I can say is that, if they had ever lived in the USA where actual bears wander about riffling through rubbish bins, they might have had a point. But this is the town where they don’t have bears but do stage the World Alternative Games, including bog snorkelling, wife carrying, man versus horse races, table tennis with “additional hazards”, and so forth. Altogether weird, so no surprise we ended up there then… except that we’re not there for the foreseeable future, being in Portugal instead. I wonder if they have bears here…

To make this post ‘legal’, I’ve added a couple of ‘cheeky’ (but not ‘bare’) pictures to the Gay Expression page (https://tonycavanagh.com/gay-expression/). These should appeal to one follower who seems to like feet (you know who you are, NJ boy!)…

House Boys

…indeed. 21 suitably house-trained ‘pets’ are now available for your inspection on the second Fitness (Etc) page (https://tonycavanagh.com/fitness-acrobatics-and-gymnastics-2/)! Naturally, given our interests, they are well-developed specimens, and shirtless.

Enjoy.

You might enjoy one of my books too… who knows? Curl up with your pet and try ‘Let The Future Find Me.’ Another shirtless (and reluctantly gay) boy, with a ‘pet’ of a different kind: spirit guide, tormentor, comedian… open the pages and meet Sammy Three Rivers and ‘Archeon’…
