The Lion Lies Waiting, latest gay-themed novel from Glenn Quigley

Irish gay author, Glenn Quigley, originally from Dublin but now living near Belfast, has released his follow-up novel to his gay-themed debut, The Moth and Moon, which was released earlier this year by Ninestar Press.

The new novel, titled The Lion Lies Waiting, will be on Amazon, and at most major retailers, from 17 December 2018, just in time to be bought for that special someone as a pressie for Christmas! (Or for yourself!!).

The Lion Lies Waiting features a gay protagonist, as well as lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered characters. The story again features the gay main character, fisherman Robin Shipp, and there is a short synopsis below to whet your appetites:

Winter, 1780, and the solstice is fast approaching. Four months after the events of The Moth and Moon, burly fisherman, Robin Shipp, is preparing for his first Midwinter festival with his lover, the handsome baker, Edwin Farriner.

But when a letter arrives begging for help, they must travel with their friend, Duncan, to Port Knot on sinister Blackrabbit Island, for a final confrontation with Edwin’s mother. Also visiting the island are Lady Eva and her wife Iris, with a stunning proposition that could change Robin and Edwin’s lives forever.

The snow-covered harbour town of Port Knot is a dangerous place. While there, Robin, Edwin, and Duncan explore the menacing rooftop settlement known as the Roost, mingle with high society in the magnificent splendour of Chase Manor, and uncover a violent conspiracy threatening the island’s entire way of life.

Old rivalries will flare, shocking secrets will be revealed, and, as Duncan’s scandalous past finally catches up with him, will it ultimately destroy them all?

The men will be tested to their limits, as they discover that on Blackrabbit Island the lion lies waiting.
