 Parent company of Helix Studios (13 Red Media Ltd), known for the hottest models and videos, released the first novel in their new Rise Up series on July 19, 2018.                         

Rise Up is a new series of adult novels that illuminates pivotal moments in the lives of LGBTQ youth.

Each novel features a fresh protagonist and his experience navigating the ups and downs of adulthood. While the characters change and the stories vary, common themes—including the struggle for independence, identifying one’s passions, searching for acceptance and for love—are interwoven through the pages of the novels.

These stories will open the reader’s eyes to worlds of possibilities, both conventional and off-beat, as these men take you on their journeys to self-discovery.

Blake Mitchell knows a bit about enough things and a lot about a few. While the Kentucky teenager is unsure of which direction to take in life, he’s aware the road he’s on is a direct route to desolation.

Being outed as bisexual in the bluegrass state is alienating, and the events to follow are worse. Still, Blake is driven—by any means necessary—to make something more of himself. Identifying an opening, Blake paves a path and finds His Own Way Out.

Hillcrest’s favorite gay clothing & adult novelty store, Manfest, will host a book signing of His Own Way Out on Saturday, August 18, from 7-9 pm.  Blake Mitchell, Helix Model and subject of the book; Helix Founder & CEO Keith Miller, and Author Taylor Saracen will be at the store for a meet-and-greet. 

They will sign copies of the book and be happy to pose for selfies.
