Captain Harding's Six-Day War
When a loose-cannon colonel at remote Wheelus Air Base, Libya attacks an Arab warship during the run-up to the 1967 war, handsome, hard-charging Captain Joe Harding must come out to his closest, straightest buddies in order to bring the pilots and their airplanes safely home. Joe Harding's story–his battles and his love scenes–hums with muscular poetry and sizzles with sweaty, well-earned passion.


Hot off the Presses: A Novel
Crusading gay-newsweekly editor Henry Thompson faces a series of ethical conflicts: Should he report or ignore the misbehavior of Olympic athletes, A-list socialites, public figures and corrupt politicians who happen to be either close friends, former lovers or powerful enough to get him fired?

It Takes Two: A Novel
February, 1949. Fort Myers, Florida. It started out to be such a nice day. But early morning gunfire at the Royal Plaza Motor Hotel changed all that. One white man is dead. One black man is dead. The widow of the white man has just crashed the investigation, and is waving a gun around. Barely escaping the shot that blows the window out of the car in which he is sitting is Dan Ewing, who isn't even supposed to be there. Saving his bacon is police detective Bud Wright. Bud and Dan are more than fishing buddies, but no one can know that. And their secret is just one of many in this small town.

Voted Best Romance in TLA's Gaybies Awards competition. . . . "Speak Its Name’s Best Book of the Year ... Resoundingly goes to 'Captain Harding’s Six Day War' by Elliott Mackle. Atmospheric, real, with great characters, politic and complicated plot all of which is left closed enough for us to be satisfied but open enough to call for a sequel which I’ve been told is being written." --Erastes, Speak Its Name.
''This is the way gay novels used to be written: big, smart, sexy, funny–with important themes, great characters, and the tainted heart of a big city at its core.'' –Felice Picano.
