I have a cover!!! I shared this with my newsletter on the 13th and then completely forgot to post it here. I’m a little in love, I have to say 😍
Finding Home is a box set of three Up North stories – Banger challenge, Around Seven, and Once in May. I’m very fond of all three of these stories and hope you will be too.
They’re all about men who don’t belong anywhere, who are moving around and never putting down roots until they find their place in the small towns of the north.
Banger Challenge is about Zen who’s reeling from the death of his father and partaking in a charity junk car race to raise money for cancer research. Along the way, he picks up Fred.
In Around Seven we get to know Oswald who has been living in his car for two hundred and seventy-three days, which is the same number of days since he walked in on his fiancé cheating on him. But he’s running out of money, and the days are getting colder, so when he’s offered a job in Nortown, he accepts. And there is Joshua.
In Once in May, Zach comes back to his hometown after several years of moving around from one country to another only to find the cabin where he’d planned to live occupied. By John.
It will be released on February 25th.
Can a restless soul find a home?
Three contemporary gay romance novellas. Three characters looking for a place to belong. Follow them as they put down roots in the small towns of the north. Oswald has never had a place to call home, but he can’t live in his car forever. Zen is lost after the death of his father and spends his time on the road. Zach returns to his hometown after several years away and finds something he never believed he would.
Contains the stories:
Around Seven: Oswald Sattle has been sleeping in his Toyota Camry for the last nine months. Out of money and out of options, he’s on his way to Nortown for a job opportunity he can’t turn down. Joshua Roth has everything he needs, but he wants to make Oswald smile. He keeps suggesting things that will make Oswald stay, but Oswald doesn’t want to overstay his welcome. Maybe it’s time to move on again?
Banger Challenge: A month after losing his father, the only thing holding Zen Zeppelin Cave together is focusing on a charity junk car race to raise money for cancer research. He had planned on completing the race on his own, but a spur-of-the-moment decision changes that when he invites the adorable, blushing police officer whose driveway he’s blocking to tag along.
Once in May: To hide from his past, John Welsh has spent the last few years building walls around himself. He knows the best way to stay safe is to keep people at arm’s length. He should’ve known the peace he’s found wouldn’t last. One day everything is fine, the next Zachary Fane shows up wherever he goes. All Zachary wants is to be close to John, and if following him around is the only way, then so be it.
