Handsome Julian Larson is a talented singer and dancer who performs in drag to make ends meet. So when his best friend needs a burlesque act at the last minute for a fireman’s birthday party, he calls Julian. There Julian dances for the birthday boy Trent Fitzgerald; a too good to be true heart throb who is too nice to keep a woman in his life. Falling hard for the leggy, blond singer–but believing that she’s a woman named Julia–Trent tracks Julian down to his apartment where Julian poses as “Julia’s” twin in a desperate, doomed ploy to win over the sexy firefighter. When Trent inevitably uncovers the truth, will it mean the end of Julian’s chances or the beginning of a new opportunity?

Another encouraging review for “A Certain Pressure in the Pipes” is up on Three Dollar Bill Reviews.
“I honestly laughed out loud when I read the blurb about the pleasuring machine and when introduced in the story, the scene is not only hot but very enjoyable. It’s funny, tongue in cheek (both cheeks!) and sets up some great lines between the men. Conrad’s sense of the absurd really makes the story fun to read.”

I’m very happy that the reviewer enjoyed the story and really seemed to “get” Conrad. It’s very exciting this story is doing so well because it was so fun to write. It came out of my wanting to experiment with the genre and reading books about Andrew Jackson and Abraham Lincoln at the time, so I felt fairly comfy with the atmosphere. And making up pervy inventions? Well, that’s just fun.
I’ve been kind of flying under the radar as far as reviews have been concerned so it was great to be surprised by this when it came up in my google alerts. I’m terribly excited, which is dorky, but then, I’m pretty excited any time anyone reads my stories to start with, so there you go. I’m a dork. We all knew that.
“A Certain Pressure in the Pipes,” my Steampunk, m/m erotica story received a lovely review at Seriously Reviewed:
“A Certain Pressure in the Pipes was a surprise for me. I haven’t read much in the Steampunk genre and after reading this story, I’ll be picking up more. Historical meets futuristic. Add in some hot man on man action and campy humor and you have a story that I couldn’t put down.”
