It's right around the corner! My first novel, Analyzing Emory, will come out January 4th from Dreamspinner Press. SQUEE!!!
When a family friend offers him the job of resident psychologist at Chicago’s GLBT Center, Kyle Michelson jumps at the chance to reinvigorate his career, move on from his recent breakup, and get his life back on track. Kyle hopes returning to the familiar territory of his hometown will do him good, but meeting Emory Brenner at a club changes everything.
Anything but familiar, Emory leaves Kyle breathless from the start. There’s just one problem: Kyle wants more than a one-night stand, Emory doesn’t do relationships, and neither man can resist the other. Luckily for Emory, he never has to see Kyle again. Or so Emory thinks until he runs into him while volunteering at the GLBT Center.
Kyle makes Emory want things he never thought he could have and chips away at secrets Emory has kept locked away for years. On the surface, Emory’s recovered from his past: he has a job at a record store and a roof over his head. But putting his trust in another person, having a relationship, means opening himself to more pain—and that is a risk he can’t take.
There were a lot of times I didn't think this novel would ever get finished. I owe a big thanks to a very dear friend for always lending the encouragement and support I needed to keep plugging away at it. I'm really proud of this story and I'm so excited to finally be able to share it. I also have to send a shout-out to the wonderful folks over at Dreamspinner who've just been exceptional throughout this process. And the biggest thank you ever to L.C. Chase for the beautiful cover!!
