Release Day Falling Through

How do you know if you’re going mad?

Today it’s time for Larry and Travis to find their way out into the world. Falling Though is a novelette about a man his ghost, or maybe more about a ghost and his man.

¤¤¤

Larry shouldn’t get agitated, but it was hard to ignore the ticks from the kitchen clock as they drifted all the way into the bedroom. Shadows shouldn’t care about the humans around them, but he liked living with Travis, liked looking at Travis, liked pretending…

He often found himself smiling at Travis’s funny little quirks, like the way he grumbled when his tousled brown hair refused to cooperate in the mornings. He liked watching Travis’s brows crease in concentration as he wrote down his numbers, how he rubbed his chin when he thought, and when he allowed himself to laugh at something on the TV. He definitely liked watching Travis in the shower. There wasn’t much entertainment around here, and Larry wouldn’t let a chance like that pass him by. It never got old, watching the suds run down his lithe body. But no matter how much he liked watching Travis, the absolute best thing about him was that he didn’t make much noise—and he never brought any obnoxious friends over.

Larry shuddered as he recalled the young woman who had lived here before Travis. If he hadn’t been dead already, he might have tried to take his life then.


30274488Travis is running himself ragged. He’s trying to keep two jobs just to pay his rent. If he has to flirt with some creepy old women at the pub to get a little extra tip money then so be it. One day, he’ll have someone special waiting for him when he gets back home from work, or is that too much to ask? Right now isn’t the best of times to get a boyfriend anyway since Travis is going mad, but one day… Every so often, Travis gets the feeling of not being alone, and sometimes, he sees things. But he tries to stay positive; maybe there’s a strapping young fella waiting for him in the looney bin.

Larry’s existence was dead boring until Travis moved in. Now he spends his time watching Travis, fantasising about touching him, kissing him… Their movie nights would be a bit cosier if Travis knew he was there, but sometimes, you have to settle for what you can get. As far as roommates go, Travis is the best Larry has ever had, and it isn’t Travis’s fault he can’t see Larry – no one has been able to since the day he died.

When Travis loses one of his jobs, both he and Larry fear for their future. Larry can’t imagine being without Travis, and Travis is desperate to find a way to pay his bills. While Travis searches for a solution to his money problems Larry has to decide if he’s willing to risk existence as he knows it for a chance of a better life.

Friday Reads | In the Middle of Somewhere

Oh My God! In the Middle of Somewhere is so good. I feel like apologising to Roan Parrish because I didn’t expect it to be. I filed it away as another one of those romantic stories, and it is romantic, but I couldn’t put it down. Makes me ashamed to make light of lumberjacks really because this was a real story, with real problems, and a lot of pop cultural references. I kept thinking ‘Oh Amy (Spector) should totally read this, she’d probably get all the horror references I only vaguely get’.

After having binge read Jordan Castillo Prince’s PsyCop Series I thought I’d read In the Middle of Somewhere. I don’t have nearly as much time to write these days so I can’t really afford to become completely hooked on books—I wouldn’t get a word down.

So I thought this would fit me, interesting enough to read but not really taking over my life. I was wrong. The dishes have formed a mountain in the kitchen and my word count is embarrassingly low because instead of using K’s naps for writing I’ve been reading. And I don’t know if it is because I’ve been reading a lot of JCP lately but in my mind Daniel was the model on the Body Art cover.

But, it doesn’t matter, now I have to read Out of Nowhere (Middle of Somewhere #2). I just have to.

Daniel Mulligan is tough, snarky, and tattooed, hiding his self-consciousness behind sarcasm. Daniel has never fit in—not at home in Philadelphia with his auto mechanic father and brothers, and not at school where his Ivy League classmates looked down on him. Now, Daniel’s relieved to have a job at a small college in Holiday, Northern Michigan, but he’s a city boy through and through, and it’s clear that this small town is one more place he won’t fit in.

Rex Vale clings to routine to keep loneliness at bay: honing his muscular body, perfecting his recipes, and making custom furniture. Rex has lived in Holiday for years, but his shyness and imposing size have kept him from connecting with people.

When the two men meet, their chemistry is explosive, but Rex fears Daniel will be another in a long line of people to leave him, and Daniel has learned that letting anyone in can be a fatal weakness. Just as they begin to break down the walls keeping them apart, Daniel is called home to Philadelphia, where he discovers a secret that changes the way he understands everything.

Friday Reads | GhosTV

Friday again? I’ve been crazy writing so I haven’t really been paying attention to what day it’s been but now it’s Friday it seems. Amy Spector, Dante the hot librarian, and I are buddy reading Jordan Castillo Price’s PsyCop series. I was a little late to the party but I started GhostTV (PsyCop #6) yesterday and it’s so hard to let go of Vic and Jacob long enough to get anything else done.

If you haven’t read this series I really, really recommend it. There is no one quite like Vic, or Jacob…or Crash for that matter, and then there are all these ghosts and bad guys and panic attacks, not to mention the bite marks.

Don’t miss out!

For the past dozen years, Victor Bayne has solved numerous murders by interrogating witnesses only he can see—dead witnesses. But when his best friend Lisa goes missing from the sunny California campus of PsyTrain, the last thing he wants to find there is her spirit.

Disappearing without a trace in a school full of psychics? That’s some trick. But somehow both Lisa and her roommate have vanished into thin air. A group of fanatics called Five Faith has been sniffing around, and Lisa’s email is compromised.

Time is running out, and with no ghosts to cross-examine, Vic can’t afford to turn down any offers of help. An old enemy can provide an innovative way to track Vic’s missing friend, and he enters into an uneasy alliance—even though its ultimate cost will ensnare him in a debt he may never manage to settle.
