Finding Each Other Available Tomorrow for Pre-order

Finding Each Other, Book Two of the Finding Series, will be available for pre-order November 15, 2016, at a price of $0.99. It will be published on November 27, 2016, at the regular price of $2.99.

This is the sequel to Finding Friendship, where straight Mike and gay Luke strike up a bromance. Luke is still wary of getting too close for fear of being hurt again. Mike is still wary of pushing Luke to come closer for fear of abandonment. Mike's meltdowns, triggered by jealousy, actually help bring the two men closer. Luke's meltdowns, triggered by becoming vulnerable, push them farther apart.

They become closer emotionally, intellectually and physically. They agree they are boyfriends, but don't try to define it. When Luke finally opens his art to Mike, it starts a chain of events that bonds them tighter, and leads to each expressing his feelings for the other. They've found friendship and they've found one another. Do they find love?

Readers can get a free companion novella, Emgee Saves the Farm, written by Mike's dog.

Volume Three, Finding Closure, will be available for pre-order just before Christmas, 2016.

Recommended Reading

Daron's Guitar Chronicles is the best coming-of-age tale I have ever read.

Daron's growth and evolution provides the umbrella story. Underneath that are multiple stories dealing with rock and roll in the 1980s, the record industry, dysfunctional families, coming out, dealing with adversity, mental illness, the meaning of fidelity, and at least a dozen others. The stories are told in threads that intertwine, disappear and reappear later, but all are tied to Daron's coming of age.

The Chronicles are also available on-line at The writing is superb, the characters are so realistic that many aficionados treat them as actual people. If you read on-line, start at the beginning. There's not a wasted chapter, sentence or word.
