March is over and the sale is done. Did you take advantage of the savings on terrific books?
Here is the cover of my debut novel Angels Fall, which will be released by Lethe Press later this year. I think it’s stunning. My thanks to designer Matt Cresswell of Inkspiral Book & Cover Design, and to my editor, Steve Berman.
After decades away, vampire Ehrichto Salvatolle has agreed to return, for good, to the polyfidelitous household of his sire, Kabil Dorjan, in exchange for help dealing with his only progeny, Nick. Nick’s penchant for shooting the world’s deadliest neurotoxins into his veins seems to finally be catching up to him. He may be immortal, but he’s wasting away.
Ehrichto is willing to make the sacrifice to save his friend, in part because he’s given up on having the thing he wants most: the kind of lasting romance his parents enjoyed. As a child he was told he wasn’t allowed to have that kind of relationship with another man, while the men with whom he became involved told him he was crazy to want it. Men, everyone else agreed, do not fall in love with other men.
When Ehrichto meets Michael Conway Ferguson he spies a chance to finally be loved by someone with whom he is in love. But does his deal with Dorjan mean it’s too late for that? And even if it isn’t, after internalizing everyone else’s opinions about what he should or shouldn’t desire, can Ehrichto manage to believe that he deserves to be happy?
Releasing this fall from Lethe Press.
