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 ***

…20 more images of fit young men doing what they love to do can be found on the Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics page. and when you’re done with that, and the other goodies you might find there, relax with a good book (but then I would say that, wouldn’t I?)… click the cover!

Choosing ‘Mr Right’

Dave and I know exactly what we like to see in a guy… each other, for a start, and then some of our closest friends. But, just for fun, we’ve selected 20 young gentlemen with various “attributes”, whom you might like to ‘rate’ as suitable gay companions! In doing this, we make no suppositions about the sexuality of the guys pictured, all of which are unknown to us.

Visit the Gay Expression page now and see who might ‘fit your bill’… and then come back here to comment and let us all know what you like!

Ironically – although not really – my first three books are on exactly the them of finding and falling for a gay mate (and all the things we both liked doing as well as doing all those ‘gay’ things!). A lot of sport, circus and adventure in here too. Click on these covers for more information.

Some observers may view guys ‘getting it together’ as ‘guys up to no good’. Whichever way you fell about gay relationships, let me share another picture which is clearly of boys up to no good… but boys enjoying the sun in their native South America, boys out for a good time, and enjoying a little sense of danger… if only from the guy glaring at them from the window of the tram:

If your childhood was spent ‘living on the edge’ like that, then you were extremely fortunate! And, BOY, doesn’t that boy on the right go in for skimpy briefs!!

A fourth book is also about gay love, but mainly ‘love lost’ and ‘love trying to be regained’. Follow the lone Native American boy as he jumps through ever more hoops in search of his destiny…

Keeping Things in Proportion…

…by which we mean not just creating a body with good ‘proportions’ (not excessively large muscle which inhibits movement!) but keeping the time spent training to reasonable amounts and not going OTT! Some images on the slimmer side which we think are good examples… we can visit the gym (and a gymnast in training), the beach, and guys generally having fun… or just taking selfies in the bathroom!

20 new pictures on the Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics page.

Keep telling everyone you enjoy the books, guys… please!

What’s the first thing the lads show off if they want to look tough? A ‘gun show’, as they say in the States!

Celebrating what one website we regularly visit describes as ‘The Lost Art of the Hand Balance’. I don’t think so!

20 handstand pictures added to the ‘Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics‘ page.

Don’t forget that this site also offers reading matter if you feel less ‘physically inclined’ today! Acrobatic – check. Gay – check (but you don’t have to be gay to read about gay love and stuff) Adventure – check. Misadventure – definitely!

…and not forgetting the ‘gay romance’ which is in many ways more of a solitary road trip – well, actually an ‘on-foot’ trip, in search of answers to unspoken questions… will it all end happily?
