"Intriguing, ambitious, and pretty damn delightful. I thoroughly enjoyed 'Hugh' and it gave me a lot to think about. This is a unique and exhilarating journey." – Alexis Hall, author of Boyfriend Material
From an old family trunk comes a manuscript which never saw the light of day. Its pages tell of a young man awakening to himself, his sexuality, and his world in this love letter to the era of Tom Jones.
The slightly spoiled, slightly poetical, slightly absurd son of an ambitious baronet, Hugh Entwistle possesses the wealth and connections to make him a success in Georgian England. But before pursuing a sinecure in the military, he will spend the summer of 1768 at his country estate – far from the turmoil in London this politically volatile year.
Only to discover a deeper, more profound turmoil within himself when he encounters the rebellious, and beautiful, son of the parish parson.
So begins the hilarious and heart-breaking collapse of a well-ordered world. Hugh paints a sprawling canvas of 18th century England – a world of wig powder and heeled slippers, of connivers and blackmailers, in which the search for Liberty will require Hugh to redefine the rules of the game.
Readers are enchanted with Hugh: A Hero without a Novel:
“Sui generis, thoroughly interesting, fabulously vivid in place and time. It’s extremely and realistically Georgian. A queer bildungsroman with more than a nod to Tom Jones, Tristram Shandy and the like. I found it absolutely fascinating...”
– KJ Charles, author of The Secret Lives of Country Gentleman (The Doomsday Books)
"'Hugh' is a deliciously satirical comedy, written in an antiquated syntax appropriate to the 18th century setting. At first entranced by, and then denied beauty, passion, and ecstasy (and what passion! ...the Sorrows of Young Werther came to mind...), Hugh becomes indifferent to offered pleasure until, at last, and in deathly fear of exposure, he attains the (outrageously, hilariously warped) Sublime." – Maria Huttenrauch, NetGalley Reviews
“…a work of queer historical archiving that’s as admirable and remarkable as its hero.” – Kirkus Reviews
“As good as the story is, and it’s a grand, queer coming-of-age story filled with colorful characters, voice and writing made it a 10-star novel for me. The quality of the writing and the spot-on timbre of the voice fully immerses the reader into Hugh’s world without a misstep in this seamless historical narrative.” – Coffee and Ink
“This book was everything I look for in a book. Page turning, as in couldn't put it down, intelligent, believable, made me laugh, made me cry and inspired my first ever book review. I'm not a man or gay but David Lawrence's writing helped me see each character. His books should be required reading.” – Belinda Alexander, NetGalley Reviews
“To set something like this account in the eighteenth century is no mean achievement. It is a work of literature and a tour de force.” – Briefstalk, Amazon Reviewer

How Hard Would YOU Fight for True Love?
Fourteen-year-old Aiden Rothe’s life is full of secrets, and his sexuality is only the tip of the iceberg. While his high school wrestling team views gay and strong as mutually exclusive, Aiden is determined to prove them wrong. It’s time for a gay athlete to take top prize... if only he wasn’t crushing hard on Mateo Hernandez, captain of the JV wrestling team and a major heartthrob.
Locked out of the wrestling scene, Aiden finds an unlikely mentor in his English teacher, Lloyd Samuels, who introduces him to karate. When Aiden’s honesty about his sexuality backfires with some homophobic fellow students, Mr. S even steps in to protect him, creating a school martial arts club in the process. Once word gets around, there’s an exciting new challenge on campus—the championship wrestling team against a bunch of outsiders and underdogs. It’s the ultimate battle between the cool kids and the rebels. And for the main event? A showdown between Aiden versus Mateo. But can Aiden fight his first love and prove himself at the same time?
Dripping with raw emotion, unexpected twists, and more than a dash of hope, Singlets and Secrets isn’t just more high school drama. It’s a deep dive into figuring out who you are and accepting it no matter what someone else may think—a heroic journey that speaks to the struggling teenager in us all.

Love is cheap. Love is cruel. Love can’t save us.
Victor Lang had everything—looks, money, fame. A chance to become the greatest swimmer in history. Until a failed dope test brought him crashing down.
According to the rumors, he turned into a recluse, a drug addict, a whore. Broken beyond repair. Incapable of love.
And for some reason, he’s set his sights on me.
A freak accident in his pool throws me into a world of wealth and status and people who are willing to do anything to get what they want. Before I know it, I’m being paid to fly to Italy and pose as his boyfriend. Trapped at his side, I learn what it means to truly hate someone.
Turns out, that’s exactly what he wants.
I can’t save him, and I can’t love him. But as things fall apart and I discover the truths he’s hiding, I learn that hate can be greater than love—an obsession, a prayer, dark days and darker nights, a need to be the only one who hurts him. Hate can heal the worst wounds love leaves behind.
But I have problems of my own, a broken spirit and loved ones to protect. And I’m scared to face the things he’s waking up inside of me.
A gritty, emotional, epic hate-to-love slow burn with an inexperienced top and his bratty bottom, hurt/comfort, obsession, and healing.

Oliver Twist meets The Crimson Petal and the White in this historically vivid, fabulously original queer romance “Great for fans of K J Charles and Mackenzi Lee” (Booklife Reviews/Publishers Weekly March 6, 2023)
William Dempsey rose from a life of thieving and prostitution to be the personal plaything of the Marquess of Argyll. Then a betrayal sees him returned to the rough streets of London without patronage, his West End apartment, or a place among the ton.
So on a stormy night, he arrives at a house in Southwark – Marathon Moll’s in the Mint – the bawdyhouse he worked in during his ascent and where he earned the name Blue Billy. Here, amidst the parties and antics of the house, he meets Tom, a quiet, conflicted man, who senses in Billy a kindred soul. The attraction is immediate, and they take the first, tentative steps towards each other.
Then an ambitious young rogue arrives at the house. A man with the power to make Billy question everything he thinks he wants. To dream of the promise of his failed youth. To reclaim the language of his past, even if it costs him his future.
Readers and Reviewers rave about Blue Billy:
"…it's a marvellous exercise in the use of language and historical detail, terrifically grounded, very vivid and real-feeling. I am a really big fan of what this author is doing with queer historical writing and the very strong research and language.” – K J Charles, author of A Nobleman's Guide to Seducing a Scoundrel (The Doomsday Books)
"A beautiful love story between two very different men. Elegantly written and full of fabulous historical details, this very entertaining romp is not only cleverly plotted but it is also blessed with a terrific cast of exquisitely drawn characters. A truly delightful story that will stay with you long after its last gorgeous sentences..." – Jean Luc Estrella, NetGalley Reviews
“...(an) evocative historical novel of rogues, sex, and found community. Scenes like a staged “marriage” at Moll’s are uproarious, and the brothel offers a heartening sense of connection and camaraderie.”– BookLife Reviews, Publishers Weekly March 6, 2023
"A great choice for fans of historical romances. Lawrence has created a delightful world in Moll’s bawdyhouse. If you like period stories that take pains to build a vivid, engrossing picture of the time period, this is the book for you."– Joyfully Jay
“A gritty and emotional tale of a complex young protagonist… a satisfying and moving novel.”– Kirkus Reviews
“A beautifully written novel… a deep, poignant book with a moving storyline and complex characters. It was a wonderful read!” – The Historical Fiction Company
"A ribald and incisive provocation... riotously bawdy... readers who relish irreverent literary play will be rewarded with insight and challenges to convention..." — Booklife
PUCHY MUSHKIN is a big dreamer and an even bigger loser whose spectacular failure as a human being is exceeded only by the enormity of his penis.
In the depths of his despair, Puchy has an epiphany: could the endless series of screw-ups that define his existence be the result of his overwhelming desire for the success he believes is his birthright? To test his theory and, hopefully, change his fate, Puchy vows to banish all dreams, goals, aims, ambitions, and obsessions from his life except one: to assassinate desire itself and hang it by its feet like Mussolini.
What follows is the hilariously dark, raunchy, and irreverent tale of one man's twisted war with himself—an anti-story about an anti-hero whose only motivation is to have no motivation at all.
The Tyranny of Desire by Morty Shallman is the perfect choice for fans of Arthur Nersesian and Gary Reilly's The Asphalt Warrior. If you're a fan of edgy, irreverent literature, you won't want to miss The Tyranny of Desire.
Reviewers are equally impressed and appalled by The Tyranny of Desire!
"...Shallman seems eager to challenge readers’ senses of decency whenever possible... A lively but profane comic tale." — Kirkus Reviews
"A Comedic Masterpiece" and "5 out of 5 stars" — Readers' Favorite
"A fast-paced phantasmagoric satire of a debauched contemporary LA, brilliantly written and very funny." — Robert Grossmith, author of The Empire of Lights

Should Wren ask his best friend to go on practice dates when he’s madly in love with him? Probably not. But a bad idea has never stopped Wren before. The last thing he expects to discover is that Izzy has been mutually pining for him. How long will it take before their practice dates become real ones?
I’m so used to Izzy shooting down my flirtations and bad ideas, I almost don’t know what to do when he accepts my offer to be my dating tutor. I really should have thought this genius plan out better because my heart is not prepared for my best friend to turn into Prince Charming, then sweep me off my feet like his romancing is for real. We’re only going on “practice” dates, but it feels a little too realistic. But that gives me another brilliant idea: I should try to convince Izzy to be my actual boyfriend.
Since he’s already agreed to being my dating tutor, maybe I’ll push my luck by suggesting some kissing practice next?

He pushes me to my limits with his playful flirting, naughty innuendos, and nonstop passes that wear my resistance down a little more each day. When he asks me to go out with him on practice dates to give him “pointers,” I know I should tell him there’s no way in hell I’ll do that. Agreeing would put me in serious danger of my secret feelings for him being discovered. But, it also presents a tempting opportunity to make him see me as more than just his best friend. Even more importantly, it could be my only shot at making him my actual boyfriend.
Our dates may be fake, but my feelings for him are all too real. I’ve spent years suppressing my love for him, which obviously isn’t working. If I want to win his heart and make him mine, maybe it’s time for me to embrace my role as his dating tutor and teach him a lesson on how to fall in love with me?
