On Friday, The Novel Approach hosted the cover reveal for my next novella, Heart & Soul. Behold the pretty:
Once again by the fantabulous AngstyG! The blurb:
Love can sneak up on you in the last place you’d expect.
Kellen Grady has known he’s gay since he was a teenager, but he’s never been that interested in dating. A professional pianist, he’s happy spending his days teaching students of all ages and his nights working and playing at an Atlanta bar and concert venue. When former pro football player Terrence Harvey and his brother buy the bar, Kellen’s thrown by the change to his routine, but he develops a quick friendship with Terrence, drawn to his sunny nature and sharp mind. Then their relationship takes a turn when Terrence surprises Kellen with a kiss. The unexpected action, though not unwelcome, leaves Kellen faced with reevaluating everything he thought he knew—about Terrence, and about himself.

Now I’m working feverishly to get the next novella done! Good thing I have a holiday today. 🙂

I had a great couple of days at the Georgia Romance Writers’ Moonlight & Magnolias conference. Vanessa North and I gave a workshop on writing LGBTQ+ characters that was well received, and I had some agent and editor appointments that went well. I heard two great talks by Jennifer McQuiston and Roxanne St. Claire over lunches and spent some time chatting with Nicki Salcedo and Janet Nye and meeting several new people. I also got quite a bit of writing done, thanks to the special writing room the conference set up for those who felt particularly inspired!
Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be working on prepping my next novella, Heart & Soul, for publication on November 14. The cover reveal will be this Friday, October 7, at The Novel Approach, and preorder links will be available starting then. I’ll also be working on finishing the following novella, Graphite & Glitter, and getting it sent off to my editor.
After that? Well, it looks like finishing my first M/F novel (!!!) might be next on the agenda. That could become my pseudo-NaNo project. (I don’t plan to actually sign up for NaNo this year, but I’ll definitely be writing during November.)
Speaking of November, a month from now will be my next appearance, November 5 at the Southern Magic Romance Writers’ annual reader luncheon in Birmingham. Tickets are still available, so if you’re in the area, come join us!
