SuburbaNights Gets a Cover!

Charlie Esquiaqui designed the cover for SuburbaNights, Book 3 in my Jasper Lane series! To be released July 11th. Woot! Here be the blurb:

On Jasper Lane, Cassie Bloom is gearing up for Halloween; Becky is expecting, and her father is overbearing and paranoid; Rick and James are their usual happy selves, though James has developed a porn obsession; Terrence is putting together an all drag cheer squad; and David is helping Cliff transition from adult film star to bodybuilder. Of course, that’s just what’s going on at the surface. This is suburbia, and its underbelly is teeming with secrets.

Like what’s up with that rather odd family that moved in down the street—the family with the big cross in the front yard who look nothing alike. Like where Cassie’s son, Jason, has disappeared to and why he hasn’t called. Like what on Earth Nanna Hench is doing with a scooter, a megaphone, and a clown car full of religious zealots.

When Cliff suddenly disappears, Jasper Lane goes on high alert. Terrence posts fliers, and Rick and James scour the gym. David is determined to get his husband back, but when he goes missing too—and with Cassie and Melinda on a road trip to find Jason—it’s up to Terrence to solve the mystery and save the day.

    1. I write one or two books a year. This one has been in the writing since 2010. There was a time, when I was very ill, that the only thing I could do was write...and so I did. I still have three unpublished manuscripts from those years.

    2. Well I wondered because I know you all have deadlines and such for the publishers or agents. I keep going on to my friends about this novel i want to start and never get around to it. lol But really what holds me up is I dont want to be so cliche about it. So much gay fiction is a lot of lusty sex every few pages and the plots go very fast. I hate that. I dont wanna write about that. I think I have wonderful story ideas and I talk a lot so I have a lot to say. Only thing I hate about the publishing or agency thing is when they chop your work up and it takes forever to get it out after they cut and add and all that. But you seem to just crank along buddy.

    3. LOL. The speed of publication depends on the publisher size. Small presses can sometimes release with more speed because there is not usually a whole lot of press per book done by said publisher. An author at a smaller press has to do most of his/her own publicity.
