Handy Harry has been accepted by Evernight Publishing! It will be out in September 2015. It’s a humorous short story about a reclusive artist and his unexpectedly sexy handyman. It’s a first time story. It’s a straight-to-gay story. It’s a coming out story. Yup. I crammed every juicy trope I love into this 15,000 word story. 😀 Because I could.
In a week, I’ll be back to working on Bad Oak Boys number 2: Josh and Gerwulf’s story. My tentative title is Alpha Shaman. It’s already outlined and the first scene is written!
Here’s the blurb for Handy Harry:
Reclusive artist Rufus Ward’s house needs repair, but he hates demolition and dust. However, when handyman Harry Hande rings his doorbell, Rufus lets him in—he’s everything the famous painter likes in a man: young, sexy, and somewhat confused about his sexuality. Rufus thought he was done with dating, but Harry is hot enough to push him from loneliness into love.
Harry’s sensible demeanor disguises desperation. His brother is a jerk and he needs to move out, but his fledgling business isn’t quite ready to support him. Rufus is supposed to be just another client, but when they meet, all of Harry’s preconceived notions of attraction are demolished. Lust launches him into the dare of a lifetime. Will letting Rufus draw him nude destroy him, or will his true nature come out?
