My first book, Life Changes, did not tell the story I wanted to tell. And, it wasn't very good. I wanted to write a romance story and what came out was not a romance but something entirely different. I am in a massive rewrite, keeping a few of the characters and scenes, but changing the focus completely.
The new work will cover three volumes and explore a specific kind of romance, a bromance. This is not a gay romance story and is not a piece of erotica. It's a genuine romance with all the heartaches, fulfillment and transformations of any other romance story. It's just between two men who experience a close emotional bond and don't know how to deal with it.
Months or even a full year away from publication.

Massive rewrite in progress. It finally occurred to me that the story I want to tell is actually a bromance.
Bromance. A bromance is a close, emotionally intense, non-sexual bond between two (or more) men. It is an exceptionally tight affectional, homosocial male bonding relationship that exceeds that of usual friendship, that is distinguished by a particularly high level of emotional intimacy. The emergence of the concept since the beginning of the 21st century has been seen as reflecting a change in societal perception and interest in the theme, with an increasing openness of society in the twenty-first century to reconsider gender, sexuality, and exclusivity constraints.
