Here's what coming up in my obscure little corner of the m/m romance universe.
1. Mobry's Dick, a two-part novel in which history collides in unusual ways with a duplicitous rentboy, his ruthless sugar daddy, and a decent young man who's just beginning to grope his way out of the closet. (Coming from Loose Id.)
2. Jude in Chains, a novella that centers on the ex-gay movement and a ho-doggy journalist's odyssey back to his social conscience and his heart. (Coming from Dreamspinner Press.)
3. The Prayer Waltz, a novella in which the mysterious death of a gay ex-priest raises more questions than it answers and leads to a peculiar kind of closure for the men he left behind. (I have no idea who'll want this one.)
4. Skeep and the Magical Tops (working title), a kind of short, light-hearted fairy tale featuring my man Skeep from the U-X series. This could change eighty different ways before I get seriously rolling on it, since it comes after edits for the first two books and completion of the third (but I'm close!)
The first three are primarily contemporaries and all are stand-alones. For some reason, I've lately been fascinated by flawed heroes, how difficult and ambiguous redemption can be, and the confounding nature of so many issues and situations.
If I had a dick, I guarantee it would get caught in some kind of wringer over at least one of these books. That's probably because I've given up trying to figure out what people like and why they like it -- something I've never fully grasped as a reader or a writer. So I guess I'm in the mood to throw caution to the wind. It's not like I have a reputation to lose. ;-)
