News and a snippet!

Hello and welcome to my snippet!

Last week I said I might have some news soon and this week it’s official–the final installment in the Buchanan House series will be published next summer! If all goes well *knocks wood* Dreamspinner will release Art House in August or September of 2018! I’m super excited about sharing Chase & Garrett’s story. It brings the series back to its beginnings (which is a hint :)), while tying a few things up with a pretty bow. I hope it’s a satisfying finale!

In the meantime I’m going to share snippets from the series. Last week’s was from book one, so here’s something from book two: Pride Weekend (it’s short, hot, and free!). This is a tiny bit longer than 6 sentences for context. I could’ve chosen something shorter but I’m going with a theme here–the ways different characters see the house itself.

 

My suitcase had wheels, but it wouldn’t be rolling on the gravel. Glad I’d packed light—because how many changes of clothes does one man need for three days, even if it is Pride weekend—I carried my things to Buchanan House. Clever. I’d liked the sound of it even before I read the article that practically said it was a gay, landlocked version of The Love Boat.

It didn’t seem grander in person, which was a little surprising considering the pictures online had been almost unassuming. Rustic and homey was more like it—a long, low building with only two floors, surrounded by trees, trees, and more trees. I like the outdoors as much as the next guy, but it was a relief to hear Madonna over the sounds of the ocean when I got close to the open front doors.

 

Thanks for reading!

Revisiting an old friend…

Hello and welcome to my snippet!

It’s great to be back online, in the world, and living as an adult again! After seven months away, I feel like I have a lot of work ahead of me to catch up. So it might seems strange that my snippet this week is from a book that released in 2015. There’s a reason (I think there’s a reason) and as soon as I can, I’ll spill the details.

 

For now, here’s the introduction of one of my favorite characters of all time: Buchanan House. The camp is on the Central Oregon Coast, and this snippet is from Buchanan House: Book One.

 

The boundaries of the parking lot were framed by large round logs that didn’t appear to be held in place by anything except time.

The long structure hunkered down under the canopy of trees, barely two stories tall. A porch wrapped all the way around the bottom floor. Double entry doors broke up a row of windows across the building’s facade. The grayish wood siding didn’t seem to have been painted since the Summer of Love, but might’ve once been blue. A few slats were missing from the porch railing, giving the building a gap-toothed grin that made Eric shiver.

Thanks for reading!
