Out today! Upstaged 3: Duet

Duet6x9

There’s nothing like a wedding to bring out the best—and the worst—in people.

Billy and Vince are getting married. The Von is taking time off to celebrate and the gang are all together, with a few additions.

The Caliendo family make quite an impression, especially Cousin Angel, but it’s Connor’s new boyfriend, Shaun who really takes the biscuit. Fists fly, but that’s par for the course in an Italian wedding, isn’t it?

When the dust settles, a tentative relationship begins that might finally give Angel what he’s always dreamed of – acceptance and love.

How is it November already??? I know, that whole earth round the sun bit and time passing…blah blah blah. LOL  This year has flown by! 

In that spirit, the release of this book has been delayed until November 9th, so I’ll post one last snippet (for now since I have another release coming Dec 1st I wish to share).

What is Rainbow Snippets? It’s a group of LGBT+ authors who post six sentences (or more) from a current WIP, published work or even something they’ve read that they want to rave about. Click on the link below the rainbow to be transported to a place of wonder where you will find tasters of everything from sweet romance, to hot and steamy, to fantasy and sci-fi.

This is the 3rd book in the Upstaged series to be release by Extasy Books.  To see the other 2; here are the links:

To set the stage; this (and last week’s post are of Vince on the morning of his wedding to his beloved Billy.  His roomie (and ex-bf, also his friend and best man) Asher is there to talk him through the coming celebration.

He smiled at his friend and best man and hugged him. “Good morning, Asher. Today’s the day!”

“Yeah, it is. No need to ask if you’re excited. Sit down and let me get you some breakfast. And no arguments”—he quickly added as Vince opened his mouth to complain—“I’m not having you throw up in the car because you’re too excited to eat. Toast and coffee aren’t going to kill you.”

Vince laughed and rubbed his neck. “Yes, Asher.”

To set the stage; this (and last week’s post are of Vince on the morning of his wedding to his beloved Billy. I’d left that out last week (grrrr) so this week I won’t forget the context! This picks right up the next lines down after Vince awoke (without his finace there due to superstition).

For a while, Asher had been in there with him, but at Vince’s insistence, he’d left. Vince had been without his lover before, but this time it was torture. Thankfully, however, he’d survived the night.

He scooted out of bed and threw on a robe. Shaking out his hair with his fingers, he glanced at the class ring on his finger. In a few hours it would be replaced with a gorgeous wedding band. A surge of excitement crackled through Vince and he smiled. After a long yawn, he stretched and padded to the bathroom to shower.

The light pouring in from the windows hit Vince in the face and he winced, turning onto his side. Sprawling over the bed, his sleep-muddled mind slowly registered there was nothing but empty sheets beside him. He opened his eyes and stared at the spot where Billy usually was for a long moment. He was alone, by choice. Billy had stayed over at his parents’ house for reasons of superstitious tradition. Billy thought they shouldn’t see each other until the wedding ceremony. It made for one lonely night, but Vince had handled it.

Coming March 30….Upstaged: Opening Act

Wannabe singer and band front man Erik Von Nordgren hates snarky brit Asher Berkley with a passion. From the moment he turns up at practice with his twin sister Daisy, who is one of the band the two have hated each other.
Through a series of ‘tit for tat’ incidents they annoy, frustrate and exasperated each other. The die hard goth with purple eyes and the hard core rocker with dreams of the big time have nothing in common and no need to cross paths. Except to wind each other up.
Until the day that Erik throws Asher in the school pool, when everything begins to change. Erik is so far in closet he’s in Narnia and Asher has a dark past and trust issues that stand in the way of any relationship, let alone one with the brash American who hurts him every time they try to get together.
A relationship doomed from the start, or so you’d think.

2018! New marriage, books, and insights

Happy New Year all! It is the dawning of a brand new year…can you believe it’s 2018??? Where has all the time gone?
The older I get, the faster it goes.

So, with the start of a new year, I am drawing up my guidebook for the year; a little hint I got from an organization site on FB. To sketch out what you want to accomplish for this year. So…here goes.

First, new marriage 🙂  We are nearly three months in and still very happy.  I lost my job (as is usual in my lines of work) but we remain strong and committed. I toss out ideas and he likes them; but he is highly conventional and thinks sticking with established lines of work will pay the bills.
While I agree, I have my goals and dreams of having my art and creativity pay at least some of it.
Otherwise, we are a crazy happy couple taking care of our elderly cats and parents. 🙂

Second, my books!  In a few days Southern Comfort 5 will be released; the last in the series. 
Also, the first volume of Upstaged is on its final round of edits!  Looks for that soon 🙂
A major plus…I came back to Gay Authors site with a book that was written last century (omg) but has been edited and even has a cover; but I wanted feedback first. WOW am I ever getting great comments! I hope the rest hold up and this puppy will go up for sale, hopefully to delight the many who are not on GA.

Lastly; my insights into the new year. As many know, I do not ever post politics or religion; and I won’t start. I’ll just put out there that things are a hot mess, but they have been for a very long time and it would take more than a mortal man to fix things. Humans are greatly unchanged at their base levels and I pine for the world of Star Trek, where things seem to be much better. (call it a fiction-lovers fantasy).

My goals for this year beyond the books are to: find a day job to pay the bills (in my state), knit (for profit and non alike)…release a coloring book for adults, and to begin to sketch again to my newest love, Voltron.

What are your goals and aspirations?

Good luck and Happy New Year!

Steph
