The self inflicted downfall of hans hirschi the author;










As a reader but also as a writer, an artist, and a human being I would be outraged by the sentiments of a one hans hirschi if I wasn’t too busy being thoroughly disgusted.

Apparently hans who is an author of “gay romance” or gay fiction, has stated that the only reason why women write and read gay male romance is to and I quote “get off”. He also goes on to list other grievances with gay romance or gay fiction not written by himself or other gay men. He says women as somehow destroying gay literature. He claims there is no such thing as gay for you which refers to straight male or female characters who meet a gay person they connect with and enter into some sort of gay relationship with that one person. It is funny he said this, because as a gay man I have known several of these situations that lasted for years in the real world. I have had no less than three gay friends this has happened to and about five straight friends this has happened to. He then goes on to complain that the idea of fantasy shifter creatures which by definition are neither human nor real would have the males of the species giving birth; because to hans that is just stupid and doesn’t happen in real life. I would refer hans to a very real world creature called a sea-horse where indeed it is the male of the species who gives birth, and then I would refer him to various types of animals like certain frogs who have been known to change gender half way through their lives. However who cares about any of this since we started out talking about non-human fantasy creatures? Why shouldn’t the men be the ones to give birth in these imaginary worlds? Does hans despise his own gender? Is that the real problem here?

I would like to understand the insanity of the statement that women are destroying gay literature. The vast majority of “gay romances are written by women for women. If it were not for women there wouldn’t be much of a gay literary world at all. People might think this is an exaggeration but I assure people that it is not. The gay literature world is dominated by heterosexual women who are “Dorothies” or straight female friends and allies of the gay community which is also affectionately sometimes called “OZ”.

I would also like to talk about assertion that these women only read and write gay male romance to get off. Now this is probably the most astounding and stupid thing he claims in his post. In what fantasy realm does he live in that this could possibly be true? If this was true several other things would also be true. One, they could just watch gay porn and be done with it. Then there is the fact that if this was true they would only write sex scenes and trade them back and forth. Is that what these people are doing? No, of course not. They are reading and writing whole stories. These writers are creating worlds with characters they care an awful lot about. I know because many of these people are very dear friends of mine and they truly love their characters, most of them at least. As writers and readers they are truly invested in these characters, these worlds, and their stories. I have had the chance to meet many of these readers and fans and I am all the better for it as a person. These people are so excited and joyful to share these stories, and to take these adventures and live out these fantasies. Many people know the joys of reading, but not like the true die hard fans of a series or an author. I can attest to this because again, not only am I a writer I am also a huge fan of a lot of the authors I know. Even though several of these people are my friends I still get as excited as a kid at Christmas or a teen girl meeting a rock star she loves when I encounter these authors in real life and get to talk to them.

I would like to add something to all of this. Let us pretend in some insane universe that hans is right and that somehow all of these women who spend so much time and energy reading and writing these books, and starting online groups, and book clubs, and fan clubs are doing all of this, just so they can get off. My question is “WHO CARES” and so what?

Why should any gay man complain about people getting off? As a gay man, an artist, and also as a minister and a healer, I want people to “get off” more. The more people experience orgasms the more happiness and less fighting there will be in the world. Remember the old hippy phrase “make love not war”; well seemingly according to some tests that have been done over the last several decades, this is a truth. Don’t take my word for this, go a research it. Why would I as a gay man care that any of these women might be getting off on this? That mr. hirschi stated it like it is a terrible bad thing. It is not a bad thing at all. In fact I find it both fascinating and flattering that these women might find the men of the gay community and our sex lives such a turn on, even if it is the sex lives of fictitious members of our community.

He had the idiocy to complain about cock-walks, and to this I can only think he was referencing GRL’s cock-walk where money is raised for gay charities. I was proud to donate to the walk and to purchase tickets so I could give something back to the gay community. Shame on him for complaining about something so worthy.

Another strange thing he has complained about is that gay romance authors have the stars of adult gay films on their covers. I am floored. I am also at a loss as to why this is an issue for anyone? What exactly is he objecting to? That fact that porn stars are working other jobs like being cover models? Is he trying to convince us he has never watched porn and gotten off to it; because if he is I don’t believe him at all. Is the problem that some of these stars are gay? Is it because some of them are straight and only do gay for pay? Is the problem that they cost more to get on covers than stock images? Is he jealous that he can’t afford to have them on his covers? Perhaps the problem is that none of them have agreed to be on his covers. Why the prejudice against these cover models or the authors of the books for that matter? What I find utterly strange is that he even cares about what covers, or cover models other authors use. I mean what is all this complaining really about? I think there might be a lot going on in his personal life and all of this is just his way of not dealing with it. Why else all the prejudice against things that are usually embraced by the vast majority of the gay community? Personally I have friends who are models and porn stars and I really truly just love them. They are some of the kindest, sweetest, honest, and frankly best people I have met in many many years. He wondered why people like him are not on covers? Well sir for the same reason that I am not on covers; like you and I have met you in person during GRL, I am as ugly as sin and would make a terrible cover. And no personally I don’t find you masturbation material at all since you brought it up. He seems very preoccupied in his article with things having to be “realistic”, and all I can say to that is he can have his realism. A huge part of why I love reading is to escape mundane and often terrible reality. According to him there are almost no black heterosexual female writers they are all white, he seems preoccupied with race here. Racism? I have to wonder. Now, where I can almost understand his complaints is that most gay romance is written by women for women and it shows. I don’t think anyone I know would really argue with that. I can almost always tell if a man wrote something as opposed to a woman. Women have different things they pay attention to in their work, they have a different style and different sensitivities. There are even certain words and phrases my female writer friends despise and refuse to use which I as a gay man love and use all the time. Does any of that matter? No. Does it stop me from reading the books by women and loving and enjoying them? No. I love how the moron hans throws around words like appropriation and starts talking about our last refuge and bringing up being thrown off of a reservation as if he has ever set foot on a reservation. There is no such thing as cultural appropriation but I expect nothing less than a libtard like hans to throw that racist concept around. I as a gay man love the fact that so many women love gay male romance. Many of these female friends of mine who are authors and readers read books written by gay men all the time and love them. I do slightly agree with hans that this whole movement about #ownvoices is a load of total bulls#it and I refuse to adhere to it as should all writers and artists. I want to say to hans however that no one cares about how he FEELS, because it is of zero consequence to anyone but himself. Hans also feels that rough sex is the equivalent of rape. Well hans you can’t rape the willing. I have read many times how women’s “insides” were torn apart by her lovers cock. Why shouldn’t we be able to read and write about rough sex in the queer community when so many of us love rough sex; as an example I will point to the leather community and a great many porn videos as well as many gay men I have known who love to describe their lover’s “wrecking” their holes.

I do agree with hans that much of the so called diversity in the gay community is limited to certain types of people. I for one am not accepted by the vast majority of the queer community because I am a Trump loving hardcore constitutional conservative who despises the democratic party. I don’t want to exclude democrats from the gay literary community however. Is true diversity needed? Absolutely! What I can’t understand with hans is that he wants to exclude so many people to achieve his strange idea of diversity. It is sad how ignorant and arrogant hans seems to be.

To the idiot woman who told hans that she wants her male characters to suffer at the hands of their lovers the way she did at the hands of her rapist…all I can say is that you madam are sick and twisted as the f*ck head who raped you. That is something truly disgusting. Find a journal and write it, and keep that crap to yourself. I would also like to add that due to the me-too movement I don’t believe most rape stories now. That is the true problem with the me too morons. They have shoved their crap down all of our throats so bad, that a great many of us just don’t believe people anymore and what’s worse is that many people have stopped even caring. Since I have friends and relatives that have been raped I feel this is a shame. The me too movement is hurting real rape victims not helping them at all. The author hans wants us to think about all the atrocities happening to gay men around the world right now. Well hans I don’t have to think about it or consider it, I have lived it! Is that real enough for you hans? You don’t like the thought that people get off, and personally I say shame on you for wanting to horde all the worlds orgasms for yourself. I hope everyone can get off as much as they want to because of anything that is good and legal and right to get off to. I have very rarely met any man gay or otherwise who doesn’t like to be thought of as a toy boy or a sexual fantasy. Most men I have known want to be fantasized about. Can we at least acknowledge that reality hans?

So in closing I would like to say dear Mr. hirschi please go get a real life and stop complaining about what other people do with their lives; and stop preaching down to us so condescendingly with your idiotic feelings and prejudices. You as a gay man should know better! Also I know that you happen to be an adulterer and that your husband and child deserve better. I have seen one very young man you were having an affair with and you could have been his grandfather almost. Normally I would say good for you on that one, but since you are married I would like to say, shame on you. If this were the ancient world you probably would be taken out and stoned to death. As it is I think you probably did a lot of damage to yourself with your post, since you have alienated so many people. You basically murdered your own career and I guess that is its own sort of justice now isn’t it. As for myself I have nothing to loose really by stating what I think about your article so I did. My feelings don’t matter any more than yours really but at least I can admit that. Bye Felicia.

P.S. To whatever idiot evil c*nt of a femi-nazi who told hans to stop manspalining…go F*ck yourself you utter fool of a moron piece of stupid skeezy trash! Stop womansplaining to the rest of us.

Now everyone can get back to their usual life schedules, which I hope include reading and or writing about whatever the f*ck you want to. Never let anyone tell you what literature to like and enjoy.

Happy Reading!

That is all.

The Messenger Cover Reveal for Author T. M. Smith



The O'Raven Chronicles is so utterly pleased and excited to be a host for the cover reveal for Author
T. M. Smith's new book that will be coming out soon. This will be the first book in a new series. The cover features our dear friend, new cover model David Dussing.





The Messenger by TM Smith
The Archangel trilogy book 1

Tentative release date August 31st 2018 






For centuries Gabriel, Michael and Lucifer have worked together, coexisting in the same universe. Gabriel chooses to remain silent and secluded, preferring the garden in the Hall of Souls. He dances beneath the Tree of Life, barefoot and with reckless abandon…until the day he looks into the eyes of another angel and sees the dreams he’s kept silent mirrored there.

Eons have passed since the moment Michael came to be the general of the All Father’s army in heaven, the protector of mankind. Michael has been in love with Lucifer for as long as he can remember, their relationship second only to his bond with the All Father. But lately, Michael has begun to notice cracks in the surface of their love, sensing that his lover is not as angelic as he seems.

Lucifer was the All Father’s first creation, the bringer of light, his Morning Star. He has sat to the right of the throne every day since the dawn of time. Two things were tasked to the Archangels from the start: put no other before the All Father, and protect the humans he cherishes. Lucifer challenges both sacred rules. He puts his love for Michael before his love for his creator, and he questions his creator’s wisdom when it comes to the atrocities he has seen committed by mankind.

One will fall while two remain and grow stronger. A battle of wills is on the horizon, and not only mankind, but the fate of all beings will hang in the balance.

Excerpt...
NOTE: this is an excerpt from a book that is still in the writing process and has yet to be edited.

Prologue… 

“Lu, please, don’t do this.” Michael begged. Collapsing to his knees, he reached for Lucifer’s face, only to have his hand knocked away. The look of love and tenderness he’d once seen in the darker Angels silver eyes was gone, replaced with anger and hatred, the normally shining orbs bleeding into a dull gray with pulsing coal black slits.

“You made your choice Michael.” Lucifer hissed, venom wrapped around each word he growled between clenched teeth.

Standing, the pissed off Angel shoved Michael aside, advancing on Gabriel. “You did this!” Lucifer let his wings unfurl and the All Father gasped. An Angels wings were liken to their limbs, an extension of their soul as much as bones and skin. Lucifer’s normally black and silver marbled feathers loomed over him, awash in a darkness that resembled brimstone and ash, the tips a dull, lifeless gray that matched his now dead, slitted eyes.

In a blur of movement that none of them expected, the dark Angel flew into the air, spinning and knocking Gabriel off his feet with the suddenly massive appendages jutting out of his shoulder blades. “I will destroy you Messenger. Much like you’ve done to the love he once felt for me, only for me!”

“Enough!” The All Father’s voice boomed, the heavens shaking, a brilliant white light momentarily blinding all his Angels. Blinking, Gabriel stood and moved over to where Michael sat crouched, staring up at Lucifer, confusion and pain dotting his vibrant blue eyes. “Angel of light, my son and most trusted advisor, I beg you to stop this madness. You know what the consequence will be.”

Lucifer glared at the All Father, chest heaving, breathing labored, senselessly fighting against the band of light wrapped around his middle like the sheath of a knife. “Father, please don’t…” God raised his hand silencing Michael.

“I am sorry, Michael, but he has made his choice which leaves me no alternative.” The band around Lucifer tightened, the floor beneath him opening up, exposing clouds of thunder and rain. “Star of the Morning, bringer of light, you are stripped of your titles, your wings forfeit. You shall now be known as Satan, the serpent, the prince of darkness.” Lucifer howled in agony as the strong coal-black feathers were stripped away from his being. “I cast you out of heaven and forbade your return.” The iridescent tears cascading down the All Father’s cheeks formed a river beneath the writhing Angel.

Michael cried out, turning and burying his face in Gabriel’s bronze robe, the silky fabric soon soaked through with fresh, warm tears. He wrapped his arms around Michael, shielding him from Lucifer’s violent, turbulent eyes. In the eons to come, the slow passage of time he and Michael would face together, Gabriel would always question his role in the events of that day. Could it have been avoided? Of course it could have, but that would have meant walking away from the Angel that he loved second only to the All Father.

He asked himself for the millionth time as he held Michael’s head so he wouldn’t see the clouds open up and swallow Lucifer, dragging him down to bowels of the earth, face a mask of agony and pain, forever exiled to the pit and doomed to watch over and judge only the evil of mankind… what have I done?

Chris Pratt; True Courage in the cesspool of Hollywood




I am so awed and proud of my brother in Christ, Chris Pratt right now for his courage to declare God's truth in a very public way!!!

Every one who belongs to God start praying for Chris Pratt because he declared in a very public way that there is a God so the enemy will probably go after him hard core! We need to pray for his protection, his success, and his many many blessings!

I stand in solidarity with him and say... 

There is a God! The Creator is more real than anything else! God created you and loves you, and wants you to choose what is for your highest good and that means hearing His call and choosing Him! Just let yourself believe!

Pray and ask God to make Himself real to you and reveal Himself to you! The power of prayer is real!

People who lie and cry rape when there was none disgust me!





I would like to preface this by saying, most people who cry rape…I just don’t believe the majority of them anymore. Beyond that however because of Hollywood, Ashley Judd, femi-nazi’s, and the #me too movement I just don’t care anymore. You read that right. Be cause of the me too (eternal victim) movement I don’t give a $#it anymore. In ancient times when people were raped they picked themselves up out of their dark holes and they got on with the business of living their lives. They didn’t sit in their victim-hood forever, like the planet of baby brats we have now raised. It is getting ridiculous. Hollywood not college has the real culture of rape that consists of people who cry rape falsely. If you are a real rape victim please listen to this; 1 the me too movement is not your friend, it is making people not care about you at all. & 2 You can be healed from your trauma and move on with your life despite what liberals tell you.

I do care when people cry rape however when I know for a fact it is a lie. That bothers me to the core of my being.

So imagine my surprise when a couple of years ago I had a friend who was falsely accused. How do I know he was falsely accused you ask? Well, because I was there for the entire set of events first of all. Secondly we have photographic evidence of the so called self described “victim”. Third I had personal conversations with the so called victim. Fourthly, there was a police investigation into the matter which also said that the entire incident was a load of crap; I am paraphrasing here of course because I can, and the technical jargon can be such a bore. Lastly beyond all of this there are several witnesses besides me who were also there for the entire set of events. However even if I had none of this, I would know my friend is innocent because of the content of his character, and the nature of his personality.

The accuser is a real wack job, drug using, nutcase of the highest order. His story involves things that are just too bizarre for even my strange mind to believe. First there is the fact that you can’t rape the willing, and in fact the very desperately eager. Why… he was so desperate he makes me look like the worlds most satisfied man that ever lived. I fully admit as a human being, that there have been times in my life where I have been very lonely and desperate. Never at my lowest however did I sink to the levels of becoming so pathetic, stupid, and wicked that I ever accused an innocent person of something so heinous. I would never do something like that and I know few who would personally, though Hollywood and Washington D.C. seem to be filled with wicked nut jobs that have nothing better to do than cry rape falsely, ad nauseam; out of some delusional belief that they really matter all that much, while partaking in the religion of narcissism with newly discovered heights of self worship and grandeur.

This particular nut job’s story includes admissions of willingness (so how the f*ck is it rape, despite what shows like switched at birth like to tell people?). Being drugged and utterly unconscious but still being awake enough to remember being filmed and getting gang banged and fisted by multiple people. And my personal favorite, acts of breaking the currently known laws of physics by time traveling. No, I am not kidding, when you read everything that he has ever said about his supposed rape, the only interpretation to walk away with is that he time traveled to get raped before he was supposed to have actually been raped. Does anyone else spot the insane holes in his story?

He has pictures supposedly of himself with all sorts of markings, like strangle marks on his neck where my friend supposedly chocked him to hold him down. Though why a drugged unconscious person would have to be held down is beyond my understanding!?! He was supposed to have a black eye. He was supposed to have scratch marks and so on. However the huge problem with his story is that not only do we have several witnesses to the contrary, we actually have photos that prove this is not true at all. Then he has gone on to talk about how he was drugged and then magically instantly un-drugged and after being raped attended dinner with his "rapist", before willingly going back to his supposed rapist's room so he could be re-drugged and continue to be raped.

After this supposedly happened, he was partying with us, drinking with us, going out to dinner with us, sitting right next to my friend the entire time, laughing at jokes, and whispering in his ear. On the final day of the event we were all at, he had a conversation with me, during which he openly gushed and lauded my friend. He talked about how hot he was, how awesome he was, how great he was, how he wanted to date him terribly, and how he was on the verge of falling in love with my friend.Then he contacted the police who investigated. Now first his story to them was that he got raped on Friday, then later the day changed and he said was was raped on Thursday. Which is a form of time travel unless I am getting that wrong, and would have to include being there with us on Thursday which he was not; at least he was never around anyone I was with when I was there on Thursday, which was the vast majority of the time. The police investigated and found him and his story to be lacking any credibility.

Then this same wackadoodle moron has the nerve to send me an e-mail warning me about my friend and calling him a drug using rapist. All this of course after there was already a police investigation that had cleared my friend of all charges.

Let this insane person stand as a warning against copious “casual” or random sexual encounters. You never know what type of evil nut-job is waiting to accuse you and ruin your life and the lives of your friends.

This absolute horror of a human being wasn’t satisfied with going after my friend. Oh no, he couldn’t stop there. He wanted to spread the evil and misery even more, and so went on-line and started social media pages calling my friend a rapist, and calling out my other friend and by extension me and the other witnesses, to try and ruin our lives and careers by claiming we helped cover up a rape. AS IF! I am so sure!We recently found out about this liar's social media pages about us.

Once again…this case was investigated and totally dismissed because of lack of evidence, motivation, and sanity! The cops know this individual not only has mental issues but was and or is on a number of drugs, which he talked openly about to me.

This terrible waste of space nut case, belongs in a padded cell with huge doses of lithium as far as I am concerned.

Benjamin McCarthy I call you out as an evil little liar! You are trying to ruin peoples lives and careers, their reputations, and their good names which were hard earned! Shame on you ben, shame on you! We will not stop telling the truth and speaking out against your vile lies!

The Survivor Tour;


The O'Raven Chronicles is very pleased to present this stop post on the Survivor tour for our dear colleague Author T. M. Smith! 


Title: Survivor
Author: T.M. Smith
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: August 22, 2017


Taylor Langford’s world is torn apart when he is only thirteen years old—his parents killed, leaving him alone and orphaned. With no living relatives, he’d certainly be another statistic if not for the intervention of the policeman who found Taylor in the crawl space where his mother hid him that fateful night. Despite the tragedy and resulting anguish in his life, Taylor knows how lucky he is.

Frank Moore is a rookie with the Dallas Police Department when he and his partner answer a call in Devonshire, one of the city’s more affluent neighborhoods. They think the young boy in various pictures throughout the home has been kidnapped until they find him, shaken but alive. Officer Moore recognizes the pain in the kid’s eyes, having lost his own mother to cancer when he was just a boy. He steps in, making sure Taylor is placed with a loving foster family. Over the years, Frank becomes a permanent fixture in Taylor’s life. 

A decade later, the case remains unsolved and the once gangly, uncertain teenager is now a college graduate who knows exactly what he wants. He’s coming home to the man that helped mold and shape his life, the man he’s loved for as long as he can remember, Frank Moore. But Taylor isn’t the only person returning to Dallas, and while Frank is distracted by his own conflicting feelings and the new bond growing between the two, the past creeps up on them, determined to finish what was started ten years earlier. 

A note from the author…

I hope you enjoy Frank and Taylor’s story. It’s been a long road to get them settled, but I’m happy with where this story has taken them. When I started this book, the intent was to write a stand-alone story, but that has changed. Characters continually evolve throughout the writing process, and there are several characters in the book that want to tell their story. I’ve grown especially fond of Rory and I can’t wait to write his book, which will take us back to when he first joined the Bureau, and continue on to his happy ever after. 

Please be advised: This is a May/December romance, and as in life, there are sexual situations that take place prior to the main characters finding their way to one another. This is not gratuitous; it is meant to show character growth and self-realization. There is absolutely no cheating.

A military brat born and raised at Ft. Benning Georgia; TM Smith is an avid reader, reviewer and writer. A Texas transplant, she now calls DFW her home. Most days she can be found curled up with a good book, or ticking away on her next novel.

Smith is a single mom of three disturbingly outspoken and decidedly different kids, one of which is Autistic. Besides her writing, she is passionate about Autism advocacy and LGBT rights. Because, seriously people, Love is Love!
