Kayelle Allen is my guest over at the tea house & updates on Johnnie’s book!

teahouseFavicon128Hello all! First, I’d like to let you know Kayelle Allen is over at the Purple Rose Tea House with a great post on how to write a hot shower scene! Drop by and check it out.

Second of all, there’s still a chance for you to win a $25 Dreamspinner gift certificate. Just check out my guest post about cover art over at Mickie B. Ashling’s blog. Contest is running until the end of the month.

workinprogressAlso, the reason I’ve sort of dropped off the social media planet this month is because I’ve been concentrating on Johnnie’s book to get it done in time. It’s reached 60k, officially making it a full-length novel and longer than Chance’s book. I have two chapters left and few details to fix up before it goes off to the beta. It’s been a tough one this one, as the story isn’t just about Johnnie and Henry, but the new generation of “brats” that live at Hawthorne Manor.

In Chance’s book, it was more about him and how get gets his life together. In Johnnie’s book, you get Johnnie’s story, how he’s trying to get his life together, but you also get to see Chance and Jacky eight years into their relationship. You see how they run things, their dynamics with the rest of the boys. You get a little from Alexander and Bobby, but mostly you get to know the rest of the family through Johnnie. He tells you about the seven youngsters who reside there, all with sad stories to tell. I wrote three of their ‘stories’ in one day, and I admit all three made me cry a little. Although it’s the 1930s, it still deals with the heartbreaking issue of gay youths who have been mistreated and discarded for their homosexuality. I hope the boys will touch your heart the way they’ve touched mine.

I’ll make sure to keep you all posted regarding Johnnie’s book, which has the tentative title: The Dangers of Loving Mr. Wolfe. Hopefully you all will forgive my absence while I wrap up these mischievous fellas.
