Lyman Rate signs with Shadoe Publishing

Profile Picture

Lyman Rate is an avid reader of military history as well as fantasy and science fiction.  When not working or writing, he is reading and if not doing those, is usually spending time with his wife and two dogs.  Lyman is married to his long-time girlfriend and with his dogs, Joplin and Zeus, has called Kansas home for most of his life.

In his free time, he likes to take nature walks and practice photography.  His writing career started about four years ago when he was challenged by his wife (at the time girlfriend) to see if he could write a novel.  Thinking this was a daunting task, he accepted the challenge and wrote his first book.  Since then he now has two published books with a third being published.

Lyman is grateful to have the ability to write and truly hopes that those who read his books will enjoy them as much as he enjoyed writing them.  Living in Kansas for the largest portion of his life has taught him that life is like a storm: It can be calm, but when that storm hits and everything is crazy, you hang on and the calm will return.

Lyman’s first book with Shadoe Publishing will be a fantasy fiction novel called:

Shadoe Publishing proudly releases: OUT by Alex Spear

Out

Where do you go when you feel you don’t belong anywhere?

Lydia is a young woman alone in London.  Her parents threw her out when she told them she was gay, but she finds refuge in a flat share in a crumbling building with some other gay misfits.  

Lydia can’t make up her mind if she wants to be with Sarah or not, unaware of the pain she is causing the recently bereaved woman.  Colin’s doing his imperfect best to look after Pip, who is tortured by memories of his past which threaten to destroy him.  Brian is their reclusive landlord who seems oblivious to the fact that the flat is on the verge of falling down around them.  But things get really messy when Jay comes to stay…and Lydia finds out there are worse things than having nowhere to call home.

A gay novel about finding family when your own is determined to leave you “out.”
