Just a quick post to let you know that Total-E-Bound has accepted my new M/M sci fi romance Quarantine! I don't usually broadcast this kind of news until the contract has actually been signed, but I just have to share this. Anyone who follows my blog knows how long I've been working on this book (more than a year!) and how much trouble it gave me!
The book is a full length novel, nearly 70,000 words (a "super-novel" in TEB's terminology). It's chock full of drama, adventure, some politics and yes, plenty of love and sex... ;^). Here's the blurb:
Love is contagious.
Dylan Moore will do anything for freedom. Seven years ago, a gay plague spread to heterosexuals, killing millions and sparking brutal anti-gay riots. The Guardians rounded up men who tested positive for the homogene and imprisoned them in remote quarantine centers like desolate Camp Malheur. Since then, Dylan has hacked the camp's security systems and hoarded spare bits of electronics, seeking some way to escape. He has concluded the human guards are the only weakness in the facility's defenses.
Camp guard Rafe Cowell is H-negative. He figures the lust he feels watching prisoner 3218 masturbate on the surveillance cameras must be due to his loneliness and isolation. When he finally meets the young queer, he discovers that Dylan is brilliant, brave, sexy as hell – and claims to be in love with Rafe. Despite his qualms, Rafe finds he can't resist the other man's charm. By the time Dylan asks for his help in escaping, Rafe cares too much for Dylan to refuse.
Dylan's plan goes awry and Rafe comes to his rescue. Soon they're both fugitives, fleeing from militant survivalists, murderous androids, homophobic ideologues and a powerful man who wants Dylan as his sexual toy. Hiding in the Plague-ravaged city of Sanfran, Dylan and Rafe learn there's far more than their own safety at stake. Can they help prevent the deaths of millions more people? And can Rafe trust the love of a man who deliberately seduced him in order to escape from quarantine?
I'll let you all know (of course!) as soon as I have a release date.
While I have your attention...I'll be guest blogging on Saturday the 17th at Megan Slayer's blog (http://theauthormeganslayer.blogspot.com/), giving away a copy of Hot Spell. Saturday's also my day at Hitting the Hot Spot, and I guarantee you'll enjoy my holiday post.
