Holiday cover reveal – “Rejoice, Dammit”
Earlier this month, I wrote a little flash fiction for Boy Meets Boy Reviews called “You Were.” It was supposed to be a one-off story. But the main characters in it didn’t want me to leave Derrick there, at the end, still waiting for the rest of his life. So it grew into a 30,000 word holiday story.
“Rejoice, dammit!” — I could hear my husband Thom’s voice as clearly as when he was alive, telling me that four years were enough. That this year, I needed to stop avoiding the joys of the season, and get my solitary, colorless life out of its rut. But it took seeing Colin standing in an ice storm, waiting for a bus that wasn’t coming, to convince me to take a chance on opening my life, and maybe my heart, a second time around.
I’m hoping to release it next week. Fingers crossed all the bits come together. 🙂
