This has been a good month for my writing so far. I thought I’d mention a few things that are coming soon.
On Feb 10th MLR is releasing their Valentine’s line of stories. Mine is called Possibilities. (And I’m so happy they muted the cover background for me when I requested it. The original pink, which still shows on the publisher’s Upcoming list, was a bit bright.)
After the five years he spent with his last lover, Cade has come to regard Valentine’s Day as irrelevant – just another day when romantic chumps spend money they can’t spare to keep the chocolate and greeting card companies happy. But his lover, Lorin, has been dead for eight months. After struggling to get past his grief, and cope with his HIV positive status, Cade is beginning to think about getting on with his life. Joel, a young co-worker, is not the person Cade would have chosen to share his battered and tainted renaissance . But Joel may be just the man to unfreeze the romantic in Cade’s soul.
Also on the tenth I’ll have a free short Valentine’s story about Mac and Tony posted on the website of a couple of friends. I’ll put the link up here on the day. The story is called Getting It Right – Life Lessons 1.8
I had to go back to last Valentine’s for this story, back when Mac was still in the closet and Tony was trying to be hopeful. The next Life Lessons book runs from November to December, so a new Valentine’s story would have been a spoiler for that book. Hopefully you won’t mind a step back in time (although when I was done writing Getting It Right I realized I was glad Mac has come a long way from there.)
And that’s my other bit of good news. MLR sent me a contract for Home Work – Life Lessons 3. Give me 2-3 months for editing and polishing and I hope to have this third Mac and Tony novel available.
I have the cover for Unexpected Demands – Hidden Wolves Book 2 – for those who haven’t seen it here it is (and I love this one!)
No release date yet, but it should be the end of this month.
With The Rebuilding Year releasing in less than 4 weeks, I’m looking forward to a great spring.
