The Indignities Book #1 is Available at the Special Introductory Price - 50% discount on the original retail price!

Turning thirty years old can be traumatic for young gay men who yearn to be boyish forever - but what can you do? It’s unavoidable. Or is it? Clever, conniving Stephen Spear thinks he can outsmart this particular milestone. After all, he’s managed to convince his sweet, passive boyfriend Blake that he’s been faithful to him for the past three years. Smoothing over and explaining away inconvenient realities is an absolute cinch for Stephen!

But when temptation moves right next-door in the form of Rick, a Sydney hunk with a legendary endowment, Stephen disregards any sense of caution. He’s too entranced and far too self-absorbed to realise that the seduction might not actually unfold in accordance with his master plan.

Stephen Spear, the anti-hero of the bestselling Australian novel 'Vanity Fierce', rides again in this outrageous sequel. Set ten years after 'Vanity Fierce', this new series of books can also be read as a self-contained storyline.

˃˃˃ Praise for 'The Indignities' from influential Australian mainstream media:

Aitken’s wit is wicked in every sense of that word, while his ability to address confronting issues in a deceptively sunny manner is admirable. (Australian Book Review)

The gay world has turned since 'Vanity Fierce', with the internet making its mark on social and sexual behaviour. Aitken has a keen sense of that, opening a window onto the lively confusions of gay culture. (The Age, Melbourne)

˃˃˃ A must read. (Sydney Star Observer)

The newspaper of record for Sydney's gay and lesbian community urges readers to read 'The Indignities'.

'Aitken may have written the prequel to this book more than a decade ago, but don’t let that fool you into thinking 'The Indignities' is a second-rate follow. Far from it. Aitken has has not only given character Stephen Spear a whole new audience, but also provided him with the depth of character readers of 'Vanity Fierce' feared he may never find. A must read.' Sydney Star Observer

3.0 out of 5 stars The sequel to Vanity Fierce 13 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Vanity Fierce was one of my favourite books, so I was very excited to read the sequel, The Indignities. There was such a big build up to Stephen and Ant coming together in Vanity Fierce and I was so curious about their new relationship. I was a little disappointed that this book started after their relationship has ended. It's a nice easy read and although I did enjoy the book, it's no Vanity Fierce.

I really did not like this book. The story line was awful or actually there wasn't any. I stopped reading half way through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexcapades in inner city Sydney 9 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
A funny and enjoyable journey through the lives of gay characters based around the character of Stephen Spear living in the inner Sydney suburb of Surry Hills. Its humorous twists and turns include tales of failed monogamy, sexual misadventure, deceit and revenge. Lots of fun.
I loved it and couldn't wait to read the next instalment.

5.0 out of 5 stars An audacious romp you won't want to miss 28 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
If you are looking for a romp through gay Sydney this is the book for you. An acutely observed romp through gay Sydney in the age of online dating Graeme Aitken's latest novel will have you turning each page with heated anticipation. Just when you thought it couldn't get any more steamy you reach the orgy scene and ... . I will leave this to your imagination, but it had my heart racing and my mind wishing that I was there. A great follow up to Vanity Fierce this book leaves me with high expectations for the next instalment.
