One of the cons to writing part-time is that you can’t keep to a regular release schedule and in an indie market full of rabid readers, this can be a strike against you. By the time I’ve put out something new, any headway I had from the last release is long gone. But such is publishing; I simply can’t go any faster. I’m lucky to have some very loyal readers. My own personal goal is to release at least one book a year. And while it seems like forever since I’ve published something, in actuality I am writing constantly. With rewrites and publishing schedules, it has taken over a year to get Until September to print. But it’s finally here.
I am so proud of this book. With rewrites and revisions numbering in the double digits, it’s the hardest I’ve ever worked on anything, and it’s the closest I’ve come so far to representing “the author I want to be“.
Until September releases February 8 from Riptide Publishing
As a teenager, Archie Noblesse clawed his way out of the poverty, heartache, and abuse of the reservation and left his family behind. Desperate to shake the shadow of his past, he reinvents himself as Archer Noble, an outspoken blogger and controversial author who lives only for himself. But when his beloved sister dies, Archer is saddled with guardianship of his niece and nephew.
Elementary school teacher Ryan Eriksson is devastated when his best friend Marguerite is killed, leaving her two young children orphaned. Helping Archer with his new responsibilities eases his grief, but when Archer offers him custody of the children, Ryan’s left with an impossible choice: get the family he’s always wanted, or respect Margie’s wishes and convince Archer to give parenting—and his heritage—a chance.
To buy time, Ryan promises to stay for the summer, hoping that Archer will change his mind and fall for the kids. But Archer’s reluctant, and the growing attraction between him and Ryan complicates matters. Legal decisions must be made, and soon, before Ryan returns to school. But with hearts involved, more than just the children’s future is on the line.
