Hi everyone, I was going to wait a few weeks before I got into this, so this is just a quick look into show you that pre-order is up, and maybe get you a little excited about the book.
The story behind the story
This story is about prostate cancer, but don’t worry, it’s a Happily Ever After. In all honesty, it’s more about the sudden realisation of love in a man’s scared of commitment and so it’s from his point of very, the caregivers. It’s also a very small window in time, the beginning, along with the fact that I put in only the medical information that I had to in order to get the story moving along, and being a little more real. I have, however, tried to stay away from that for the most part, as I wanted this story to be about the emotions of one, if not both men.
I wrote this book when I was stressed, not only because I knew my first book was about to be published, but me family had just been made aware of my mother and the fact that she had breast cancer. I was having a bit of a meltdown because I went into my first writer’s block (which would turn out to be a first, with a number to follow). An author on facebook, I want to say Chris Quinton (and yeah I had a bit of a fan moment as it was the first author to talk to me) who truly helped me out, because I changed tactics and I started researching.
This became a problem as time went on as I got excited and frustrated and excited and nervous about this one little book as the months went on, but clearly I’ve made it, I’m at pre-order stage and I’m bussing and nervous all over again.
Hell, I’m shit scared, but let’s not let that get out.
I chose November for a series name, and yeah I’m going all random, because I can. I had a plan to call this the Movember series, but the damn name is trademarked and I didn’t really feel right asking them if I could use it. Or if I had any actual rights in the first place. So I ended up making it easier on myself, especially if they ended up deciding, in years to come that they didn’t want me to use it, then where would I be.
I plan on writing one book a year for this series, the size and story will depend on itself, as the series will be a standalone and I’ll be doing different male health issues and different moments.
This one, I believe I’ve said, is about prostate cancer. Book 2 will be testicular cancer. I have a plan for steroid use, body image, suicide. Along with breast cancer, and Alzheimer’s
I want to show a better side to the diseases, a more hopeful tale then a lot of people write about because for me it’s more about being awareness. I want to write something hopeful that brings a light at the end of the tunnel. Or shows you that there are ways to over comes, and to get help.
It’s a hope.
The Cover Art
I love the picture I choose to use. The moment I saw it, I was hooked, only it has taken me a long time to get it right. Really, this last one I created, the one that will be on the sold book, I created last week, because there was something missing, always something that didn’t work for me. Mostly my name.
Now it’s done, finally cover art that I am proud of. Book loaded onto each site, though I plan on putting a few more on ARe, but I’m done, all we have to do is wait.
When everything Paul had ever known turned upside down, suddenly he needs to man up and fight for the love he’s always feared.
Paul’s life was set. He had what he needed and what he was comfortable with. Then a night with one of his regular lovers pulls him into the drama of sickness, love, and death.
In the end, Paul needs to work a few things out first: Is he strong enough to fall in love with a man that may need more than he’s able to give, or will he fall into old habits and run when the relationship gets too complicated?
