A cover for Sole Support

February 17, 2013

I now have the cover for Sole Support from Samhain Publishing:

Sole Suppor cover

He can find a use for his lover’s hands…except when he needs help the most.


Kellen is short on cash—at least until his first novel starts to sell—but he has plenty of friends. None of them, unfortunately, share his love of books. For that he turns to IM chats with Mike from his online book group.

Though he manages to coax the shy, socially inept pathologist into a real-time meeting, Kellen has no intention of letting his new friend become more than a casual lover. Shaky finances and ailing mother aside, self-sufficiency is Kellen’s prime directive.

Mike considers himself a nerd of the highest order—short, bespectacled, prone to blurting out the wrong thing at the worst possible time. Meeting Kellen face to face is the biggest risk of his life, and he wonders if they’ll get more body parts together than just their faces.

First meeting leads to first date—first everything for Mike—and soon Kellen’s faced with breaking his just-friends-with-benefits rule. Yet as his elderly mother wanders deeper into senility, Kellen wonders if it’s better to lean on Mike rather than fall.

Sooo… That’s the next book (unless MLR happens to move with blinding speed on Life Lessons #4 which I just submitted.)
Publication is set for June 4th, 2013.

Line edits are done and it’s off to the proofreader. All 118,000 words. This book is dedicated to my mother, whose inevitably losing battle with Alzheimer’s has informed and inspired it. The story was a little tough to write, and even harder to judge objectively, so I’ll hold my breath for the next 4 months (metaphorically, because you know I really have no super-powers) until I see what people think of Mike, Kellen and their families.

      I like the feel of this cover. I hope the book will meet people’s expectations. It has a little more personal stuff in it, which makes it harder for me to be objective. I turned in the final page proofs, so it’s good to go… in June. You might see an excerpt in some upcoming Samhain book before too long.

    As excited as I am to look forward to this book, I can’t help but notice… Life Lessons #4 for early June?? 😀

      I wish. It’s submitted and accepted, although the contract is still in the mail. But 4 months is the fastest I’ve ever had a book go through. Mid June would be the very first possible date, and not likely given that MLR is trying to go a little slower and focus on quality editing etc. Late summer is more likely.
