This year I participated in GoodReads M/M Romance Group’s Love Has No Boundaries event, which means you get a free story! It’s titled The Field of Someone Else’s Dreams and it’s sort of a lead-in to my Seasons in Saugatuck series, which should debut next year.
I already have two Saugatuck novels written. One, titled Saugatuck Summer, features Topher Carlisle, whom you’ll find mentioned in The Field of Someone Else’s Dreams, and the other, titled Risk Aware, is the back-story of a pair of characters you meet in Saugatuck Summer. They’re stand-alone novels, which means you can read them in any order. So, for instance, even though you meet Robin and Geoff in Saugatuck Summer, several years after their story in Risk Aware takes place, you don’t really need to have read Risk Aware for Saugatuck Summer to make sense.
What is the Saugatuck series? Glad you asked! For those of you unfamiliar with west Michigan, Saugatuck and Douglas are neighboring towns on the shores of Lake Michigan, not far from Holland, Michigan. Even though this region of Michigan is very conservative, Saugatuck/Douglas started out as an art colony and eventually became a very popular gay and lesbian vacation destination. Douglas features a gay resort called The Dunes, and the area is sometimes preferred to as the Provincetown (or Fire Island) of the Midwest.
So, what better setting for a series of m/m romances? As the Saugatuck series develops, I hope to bring in other authors to participate and make it more of a collaborative endeavor.
I can’t make any official announcements just yet regarding the publication dates for Saugatuck Summer and Risk Aware, but enjoy the freebie for now and if your curiosity is piqued, stay tuned for more coming next year!
