Reviews coming in and a HUGE BOGO sale!

It’s been, and will continue to be a rough time for a lot of us. Personally, I find a tremendous amount of comfort in books, and in connecting with readers. One of my favorite times of year is the summer, when I get to go meet y’all at ALA and BookCon. No longer being able to look forward to that has been difficult. Instead, our house is learning how to homeschool while in quarantine, which is a pretty quick shift from the status quo of a month ago.

I won’t lie these things have kind of made reaching out to you all to share important information, like the fact that the anthology my new short story is in, Short Stuff, is available for presale fall to the wayside. Which sucks! I am so excited to get my first YA story, “The August Sands” into your homes.  AND in other amazing news I am slow to share, both Kirkus and Foreword reviews have given our book some lovely, lovely praise!

 

Currently available for pre-sale, you can find our books at:

In other SUPER exciting news: Interlude is hosting a BOGO sale through the rest of March! I believe they’re also offering free shipping right now as well. I really want to get my books into your hands, or any books honestly, because I know we could all use a little escape!

I wish you all the absolute best right now, and I hope you’re staying healthy, both physically and mentally.

Announcing “The August Sands”

short stuff coverNews!! Super beltated news due to life being…well a disaster due to a very slow recovery from Post Concussion Syndrome.

But that’s not the exciting part!!

My first ever foray into YA, a short story called “The August Sands” is being published an anthology, Short Stuff (pub. Interlude Press). In even better news, it’s going up on Netgalley today!!

The August Sands

As the eldest child in his family, Tommy Hughes always felt the weight of responsibility growing up—to his mother, who depended on him, and to his kid brother and sister, who looked up to him. But during a summer vacation to the Michigan shore, Tommy chafes to break free and to start experiencing a series of firsts before embarking for the new world of college. 

I had a lot of fun writing this, and so much fun writing about a place I love so dearly. I can’t wait to invite you in to one of my favorite places in the world.

Short Stuff

It could start anywhere…

At a summer vacation at the lake, just before heading off to college. In a coffee shop, when the whole world is new. In a dragon’s cave, surrounded by gold. At a swim club, with the future in sight.  In SHORT STUFF, bestselling and award-winning authors dial down the angst in four meet-cute LGBTQ young adult romances.

SHORT STUFF features stories from Julia Ember (The Seafarer’s Kiss), Jude Sierra (Idlewild, What It Takes), Kate Fierro (Love Starved), and the writing team of Tom Wilinsky and Jen Sternick (Snowsisters). Edited by Alysia Constantine (Olympia Knife, Sweet).
