Last night I received notification that my novella You Belong With Me is actually going to be released sooner than expected! I was originally given a tentative release of Feb/March of 2017 so I was pleasantly surprised and excited to find out it is already on the Coming Soon page over at Dreamspinner Press and will be released November 9th of this year! The novella is already available for pre-order over on Dreamspinner Press's website and will be available at the other sites DSP releases to the day of release.
You Belong With Me was a story inspired a few years back and is something that many of us have experienced. That deep down longing for a friend, someone we've known for years, but who has always been oblivious to that fierce love in our hearts, too blind to see what was right in front of them. Scott loves his best friend Craig with every bit of his heart, but Craig is unable to see it. The difference here is that the story is given from the perspective of not only Scott and Craig but also Scott's twin sister Karen, who has suffered right along with Scott. Hopefully you'll find this trio of perspectives interesting and will be rooting for Scott by the end of it. :)
The cover artist, Anne Cain, did an amazing job with the cover. It's different than my others and I love it. I think it captured not only the essence of the story, the sadness and the weight Scott carries with him, but also the blindness Craig has toward Scott's feelings with the way Craig and his current SO are shadowed. The whole feel of it encompasses the depth of what the story means to Scott, Craig, and Karen.
|Cover Artist: Anne Cain|
Scott has been in love with his best friend Craig for years, but watching Craig with his manipulative boyfriend has worn Scott down, and he knows he needs a break from the pain and maybe a change of scenery and perspective. His twin sister, Karen, convinces him to spend a summer in Paris.
Karen is sick and tired of seeing Scott suffer, and she’s not going to stand for it anymore. She confronts Craig and tells him what he’s been missing by spurning Scott’s affection in favor of a jerk who mistreats him.
When Craig unknowingly breaks Scott’s heart, Craig opens his eyes—and his own heart—to the possibility of a future with Scott. He plans to use the time while Scott’s abroad to orchestrate a romantic surprise that will show Scott they belong together. But when he sees Scott with another man at the airport, Craig fears he’s too late.
