Happy Saturday! I don’t think I’ve posted since seeing WICKED. It was amazing, of course. We followed it up with a trip to the mountains, and now it’s the end of vacation week. It’s been pretty relaxing all around. I’m gearing up for one last concert next weekend, and then performance season is done for me but just starting for my kids.
I have a new release on May 1: Nightsong (Notes from Boston #2). This is the sequel to last year’s Anthem, about a Christian contemporary artist coming out as bisexual. I’ll be posting from the new release starting next week, complete with a giveaway or two.
The series is mostly standalone, with a new couple each time but mainly the same characters. There’s a series-long subplot, but otherwise they can be read together or apart. As a bit of background, I’m snipping from Anthem this week to give a bit of the history between the MCs of both books (Trevor in Anthem and Nate in Nightsong). Context: They’ve just moved into an apartment. Nate and Trevor have a history. Bit over 6 sentences, sorry.
Trevor looked down at his hands. “No. Real because it’s more than just messing with each other in bed now and again.” He glanced at Nate, whose face was stony. “I’ve always been with Marlie, and I thought it was understood she and I would eventually stay together. What you and I did was great, but it’s part of the past now. Fooling around between friends. Did it mean something else?”
Nate’s head was tipped back, and his gaze was firmly fixed on the ceiling. “It’s how I knew I would never be able to pretend to like girls.”
