Fire Competition: Fa Kei Sum's Story

Posted on Jun 21, 2012 2:59:08 PM PDT

It's that time of the month when the local Gay Activists gather for their board meeting to discuss the important events and issues of the day. In this case, they convene in a wealthy, local hob-nob's estate, which proves to be a distraction, because the end-of-meeting party is the main event. To this assembly comes a variety of yahoos more intent on each other, the music, the gossip and in cutting the cheese. Luke Oliver, a newbie, just out of the closet, is overwhelmed by these veterans of the gay scene - the queens, the hardliners, the snobs, the pretty boys and the chicken hawks. Then into this assortment comes Luke's date, a wave maker of a different sort. A laugh riot testiment to hypocrisy and poor party planning, Cutting the Cheese is a romp down the funny bone that will have you chuckling long after you close the last page. Boyz in the Band move over. (double-snap).

Here's what readers say about Cutting the Cheese

"Patterson, as omniscient narrator, understands that our lives and our relationships are full of agendas, often hidden, somtimes greedy, and he refuses to favor one character over another, even the newbie. A fun book (each chapter is named with a different kind of cheese) that belongs on every shelf." - Libby Cone

"The characters are vivid; (I'm certain I know one or two personally), the setting is masterfully detailed; (I could easily see it as a movie, or better yet... a theatrical production) and the pace; frantic and fevered. Hold on tight, because this trip through the lavender 'newbie shredder' is not for the faint of heart. Wickedly funny." - Timothy Mulder

"This is one nail-biting, back-stabbing, hair-pulling thrill of a ride. With the sweetest of love stories set right in the middle. I laughed so hard, I felt guilty." - Thomas Riccobuono

"Edward C Patterson offers a hilarious and engaging look into the challenges and opportunities one faces when coming out. Each of Patterson's characters are carefully crafted and I enjoyed meeting each one and seeing how their hopes, fears, desires, and manias would play out as the ever building collision course of personalities, hormones, jealousies, agendas, and love climaxed at the novel's conclusion." - Todd Fonseca,

"With Cutting the Cheese, Ed Patterson allows us a glimpse of the Gay Hierarchy, as he calls it on the back cover of his vividly written novel. A very hilarious glimpse, but still with enough depth to linger." - Rebecca Lerwill

"Patterson's cleverness and sharp wit shines in this fast paced novel. There is plenty of cheese to keep the reader crack-ing up!" J.R. Reardon

"This book deserves to made into a play - the diverse range of characters would keep any audience interested, while the dialogue would have them laughing and thinking." - Yale Jaffe

"Although I am into Mr. Patterson's wonderful Jade Owl Series and the companion Sister series, there has never been a book I've read of his that is not written to the T's and whatever the genre plain wonderfully good reading." - ellen george, Top 1000 Amazon Reviewer

Story Time

Story Time now has over 32- four and five star reviews! Nominated as the best read of 2011 by the PRG, this science fiction, post-apocalyptic novel is now only $2.99!

This review is from Story Time (Kindle Edition)
I had no idea when I started this book it would involve aliens, ha-ha, I normally avoid such stories but I am glad I did not know. The story line is well done, believable, engrossing, and hopeful.
I truly enjoyed this book, and would look for more by this author. ~~
This review is from: Story Time (Kindle Edition)
I greatly enjoyed reading Storytime. The flow was excellent and the characters vividly described. I also liked the different aliens in the book. Certain elements were a little incongruous...but overall I would definitely recommend it! As soon as I finished it, I ran over and downloaded it on to my dad's kindle. I look forward to her next novel!!!

Ian Fraser says:
In Arabella Abides, award-winning writer Ian Fraser combines romance, history, fantasy, adventure, and a taste for mind-bending philosophical speculation in the tradition of Philip K Dick, Umberto Eco, and Haruki Murakami.

At the end of the 19th century, a young heir of a famous Cooking Guild, Arabella, is trying to escape from a menacing castle in the Carpathian mountains and her impending arranged marriage to a sinister Count.

In a parallel universe, another young Arabella, a product of a dystopian society, awakens from hyper-sleep aboard a starship headed toward an unknown destination.

Arabella Abides is a literary puzzle that slowly takes shape through multiple storylines and over hundreds of years, bringing the two heroines together. Wild as a video game, this is an adventure on an epic scale.

The book is available in three separate parts, or as one gigantic read.

Arabella Abides (Book One) Arabella Abides (Book Two) Arabella Abides (Book Three)
or Arabella Abides (The Complete Trilogy)

Hello! My first published story is called: The Mystery of Silver Lake

No reviews yet, but here is the description:

When Sylvia runs away to Silver Lake she is looking to escape from all the drama and heartbreak she found at college. Instead, she finds something much worse: murder. She finds that Jesse, while he seems nice enough, is actually hiding a dark past that she would never have guessed at in a million years. The town's people tell her to leave if she knows what's good for her but she is determined to give Jesse the second chance he's never had.

Happy reading :)

My next story will be published by (hopefully) the end of July. It will be dedicated to the late great Ray Bradbury (it was actually started before he passed away).

Hi! Thanks for the opportunity to post, and thanks readers for using your valuable time to read about my novels, short stories, and the illustrated devotions for little ones.

THE CURSE was WRITTEN FOR YOUNG ADULTS, but it's a good read for adults, especially those who were teenagers in the 1950's and 1960's. Hopefully, you'll want to curl up in your favorite chair and treat yourself to a year in Karla's chaotic world after reading the first three chapters on Amazon by typing in THE CURSE by Carol Thigpen Moore. Adding my name will save you time since so many people use the word "curse" in their titles. THE CURSE is an insightful book about forbidden first love, living with bipolar, and dealing with prejudice. This novel derives its title from Karla's battles with depression. In this approximately 72,500 word novel, sixteen-year-old Karla Stevens struggles with fearful dreams, first love, and Christian faith. She has always detested prejudice in others, but discovers a family secret that teaches her that she is also prejudiced. If you like realistic fiction, you should enjoy this story with its 1963 setting.

HANNAH'S QUEST FOR LOVE - "Why doesn't Papa love me?" is the question that screams from Hannah's soul.

Hannah, a Jewish maiden, wants one thing in life, her father's love. She has one hope. If God chooses her to be the virgin to bring forth his son, she's sure her papa will love her. This book paints a picture of life in ancient Israel when God, who had not communicated with His chosen people for over 400 years, sends John the Baptist and Jesus to reach out to the Israelite people once again. Enjoy this time in history through Hannah's eyes. On Kindle this approximately 67,500 word count novel is $3.99.


TIME IS TICKING - Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6.

If you want to instill character building traits in children, I think these fables will help. When writing fables, bunnies can be handicapped and sad, but learn perseverance. Squirrels can stop being miserable after exercising courage. Beavers can have a hard time using good judgment, and monkeys can tell so many lies, they can endanger their families. The other stories that teach character building are about kindness, respect, responsibility, self-discipline, and working together. Time is ticking because if children fail to learn good character traits early in life, when young thy may walk on your toes; when older they may walk on your heart. My daughter Gina Langston, a teacher, helped me with these short stories. Kindle price $ 2.99.

HEAVEN-BOUND OR HELL-BOUND? (THE ZON TWINS) - Don't let the title fool you. There's humor in these nine short stories even though they are about the vital truth that Christ within us is salvation.

As we know, rivalry between peers often runs deep, especially between twins. The rivalry between nine-year-old twins Rosie and Josie Zon intensifies after Rosie accepts Jesus Christ as Savior. The bickering between the twins will delight young readers and at the same time introduce them to the concept that Jesus Christ is the way to heaven. Though written for juvenile readers, adults in my church are saying they could hardly wait to get to the end of these short stories to see if Josie ever became a Christian. The short stories average about 1550 words each. Kindle price $2.99.

DEVOTIONS FOR LITTLE ONES, devotions you will read over and over while cuddling your baby in your lap. Illustrator is Frances A. Wainwright.


The creation story done in pen and ink and water colors with rhyming verses is based on the Bible. The first drawing with the verse is the illustrators imagination of each creation day. The second illustration to each days creation shows little ones relating to God's day of creation. We start and end each of the four books in the series the same way since repetition is important to little ones. It is our sincere belief that the four books in this series will give your little ones a head start to knowing the God of the Universe, our Heavenly Father. Kindle price $2.99


This story done in pen and ink and water colors with rhyming verses in the LITTLE ONES AND GOD series is about God's ways. Using scriptures, we introduce God's characteristics in illustrations that will teach your child that God is kind, good, holy, mysterious, all-powerful, just, wise, ever-present, worthy, truth, eternal, and love. Just imagine how it will benefit your "lap baby" to start learning these fundamental truths now. Frances and I hope they grow up and fall in love with God as we have. Kindle price $2.99.


Think about how much easier raising a little one through those difficult teenage years would be for you and them if they learn to obey the Ten Commandments while very young. Writing the ten commandment about adultery was quite a challenge, but I think you will be pleased at the way we handled that commandment. Enjoy the illustrations, rhyming verses, and scripture that tell about the rules God gave to Moses to help man have a happier life on this earth. Kindle price $2.99.


As parents, we know the greatest gift God gave was His only begotten son to die on the cross for our sins. Using pen and ink and water color, Frances illustrated my rhyming verses about God's other gifts of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control, wisdom, time, strength, and life. Our hope is the LITTLE ONES AND GOD series will make your little one grow up with the knowledge that he or she is loved by an awesome God. Kindle price $2.99.

Here's the opening paragraph (a bit laundered) to CUTTING THE CHEESE:

Kelly Rodriguez struggled with the plastic grocery bags while trying to shut the back door.
"Kelly? Is that you?" Mortimer shouted from the recesses of the living room.
Kelly swept into the kitchen balancing the bags.
"No, it's Tom Cruise," he said. He flung the bags on the butcher block, waving his hands about his nose. "I was in the neighborhood, found these fracking bags of cheese and thought they needed a home."
No response.
Kelly rolled his eyes and, placing his hands on his hips, did his best impression of a salad cruet.
"Would you help me? This is your carp anyway!" He slammed his palm on the counter, and then muttered, "I'm not having the gay scary fairies of New Birch meeting."
Kelly caught his reflection in the polished flour canister.

The Gage Project $4.99
When things go wrong, when we hurt, when we're sad, it's good to know that we're not alone. It helps to know someone cares.

When Inknbeans Press learned Gage Bailey was going to undergo surgery, and endure a long and uncomfortable recover, with scars he would never be able to hide, we asked a few people to put together some funny stories and points for a little book.

We thought we'd get nine or ten.

We got more than forty. And people offered artwork, editing services, a book trailer, support and marketing. The profits from this endeavor will go to helping other children who are facing surgery or treatment which require a long recovery, primarily through Ronald McDonald House.

No one affiliated with this book is making any money from it. The only payment we're getting is to be able to tell a kid he's not alone.

People care.

Perle Butcher Lyon

In 1936 the world was in turmoil; depression swept over the land stealing jobs and hope, and from Europe came rumblings of another war. Women had few choices: they could teach, nurse or marry, and none of these options brought a guarantee of a better life. Chances for success and for happiness were still in the iron grip of men...

Sydney Stone lost everything when her father's shipping boat sank just outside Hickman's Harbour, Newfoundland during an early storm. She lost her livelihood, her new husband and her only hope at love and family. Rescued by the one person in town less liked than herself, she entered into what she believed was to be a marriage of convenience; he had a boat and she had the experience to run a successful fishing fleet. Unfortunately, there was nothing about that marriage that proved convenient for either of them. The Wreck of the Sidonie Stone $2.99
