Hello one and all!
So, I've done what no writer with a blog should do. I haven't posted in a year. *Hides head in shame.* The last year has been an insanely crazy busy one. After deciding to make a relatively substantial career change, I got a new job, packed up everything I owned, left Boston where I had been living for over six years, and moved to the DC metro area.
Life is ducky, but with all that job searching, and packing, and moving, and unpacking, and getting settled in a new state in a new job, I found I didn't have much time for writing. But little by little, I managed to chip away at the novel I had been working on, and I am pleased as punch to report I just signed a contract with Dreamspinner Press! Analyzing Emory will be published sometime in early 2013. *Does a super happy dance.*
Here's what it's about:
Kyle is a psychologist who moves back to Chicago to take a job working at the GLBT Center run by a family friend. Recently out of a long-term relationship, Kyle needed to leave New York to get his life back on track. It's great being back in the town where he grew up and went to college. Everything is familiar. What Kyle didn't expect was Emory. Emory is difficult, and challenging, and doesn't want anything to do with the word "relationship." But Kyle doesn't want to give up on the enigmatic man who from their first meeting at a club took his breath away.
Emory has a lot of demons and a past he won't talk about. He goes out, has sex, and never gets attached. Period. But after spending the night with Kyle, he wasn't at all prepared to deal with how Kyle made him feel... like maybe he wanted more than a one-night-stand. When Kyle and Emory run into each other again at the GLBT Center and their lives begin to intertwine, they'll both find they each have a lot to learn, and maybe what they both need is each other.
I'm thrilled to be back and look for more updates in the near future!
