Letting Go is Posted!!

CJAnthonyCover_500x710My story in the Goodreads Love Has No Boundaries event was posted this week. So excited, especially to see readers’ reactions. This one is definitely a little heavier and more emotional than Heaven. If you go by the reviews so far, you might want to have tissues handy before reading. 🙂

Eventually the story will be downloadable and I will post the link when it goes live. For now, if you are a member of the M/M Romance Group on Goodreads, you can read the story here:

****

The last time I saw him he was looking at me with that big silly grin on his face, his eyes lit up and shimmering like the lights on a Christmas tree. He laughed as he tilted his head back and he looked so free.

All Sam wanted was one night with his boyfriend Dustin where they could enjoy being together and being themselves. Where they didn’t have to hide from their devoutly Catholic parents.

One second—one split second is all it takes for life to turn completely upside down and shatter into a million pieces. One minute Sam and Dustin were together and happy. And the next, Sam wakes up to the news that Dustin is gone. As he tries to process this news, his disappointed parents force him to “find God and get normal again.” But all Sam wants is Dustin.

With a rescue from his sister, Sam slowly begins the fight back for a life of his own…a life without Dustin. One step, one minute, one day at a time.

It isn’t until he meets Nick—someone who has been where he has been—that he begins to climb out of the darkness of the past year. But can Sam make that final leap to let go of Dustin and allow his heart to love again?

“It’s time to let go… (it will be okay)”

Welcome to my blog! And my first blog post. Not sure how good I’ll be at this, I’m not a naturally chatty person.

My first-ever published novella is coming out soon, it is called Heaven, with MLR Press. Got the cover and the release date recently, so thing are getting finalized and it comes out soon—June 7! Super excited! I’ll unveil more about it in an another post.

I finished my story for the M/M Goodreads Group’s Love Has No Boundaries summer  event. Warning upfront: it’s very angsty, lots of sad stuff happening, but I did enjoy writing it and I hope the prompter, Lynn, likes it. I’ll make another entry about it too., including some pics and songs that inspired me.

I wrote both stories back to back in a short amount of time, and I’m so glad they’re both completed and done. I’m going to ease back a bit on the writing now, at least for the summer, get some other things done, catch up on my reading. I will still write this summer, just not with any pressure demands.  They don’t call them the lazy days of summer for nothing, after all. 🙂

Please stay tuned though. I will be posting some interesting and fun stuff leading up to my story releases.
