I’m making good progress with my first full-length gay romance novel, working title Darkwater House. I’ve just passed the 40k words mark, aiming for around 50k.
The novel is set in Hampstead, close to the Heath and, yes, not far from the famous gay cruising area, which features in one hot scene. There is a paranormal element, plus a murder mystery to solve too. Oh, and a sizzling romance between two very sexy guys.
I’ve enjoyed writing a longer piece. Under another name I have published several longer works and I love the journey, sometimes being surprised by the direction it takes as your characters seem to take over. It’s been fun applying the same techniques to the male/male romance genre, watching my characters grow and their relationship develop through ups and downs.
I’m hopeful that Darkwater House will find a publisher, but there are no guarentees, but I promise I will get it out there somehow.
Meanwhile you can read a sexy snippet here – this is from the unedited first draft, so it may read differently come publication.
If you enjoy reading sexy stuff, please check out my male/male erotic romance novellas The Black Mask and Hard Lessons. They are available direct from the publisher’s website or from Amazon UK and Amazon USA, and other online sellers.
