Thinking about buying my latest book December Roses but not quite sure what to expect? Well, now there are two different excerpts available to help you decide.
The first is at STONEWALL WRITERS & READERS. It’s a nice long piece from where main character Nat first meets Richie, the maddeningly elusive man he falls in love with. “All he could see was the glow of the freshly-lighted cigarette, and less clearly, the lips of the person smoking it. A man’s lips, wide and slightly full, that turned up naturally at the corners into a permanent, impish smile. Tolkien’s elf, made flesh and blood after all…”
The second features Richie introducing Nat to the area of the garden known as China. “Twin stands of giant rhubarb framed the stygian view, grey on indigo on black until the moon rose and splashed silvery light on the pallid timbers of a little ‘Willow Pattern’ bridge.” This one’s on MY OWN WEBSITE.
The full versions of both excerpts are free to read, so feel free to take a look. I hope you enjoy them!
