Equilibrium will be out in print and ebook on June 24th, yay. Since the blurb and cover are now up on Dreamspinner’s Coming Soon page, and my author page, I figured I can post it here too so you can all have a squizz at the lovely cover. Catt Ford did a great job on the cover, I love it.
Welcome to Burreela, New South Wales. Population: more animals than humans. Although most (human) occupants are trying to get out of Burreela, the tiny town is the perfect place for veterinarian Michael Stone to break out of the bad habits that almost cost him the most meaningful part of his life: his profession.
Michael is struggling to regain his balance after hard personal losses and two years of promiscuity and drug abuse. He’s not prepared to meet Ryan Mitchell, a nice guy who won’t take no for an answer, whose patient pursuit leaves Michael less and less inclined to keep refusing. But Michael’s bad habits aren’t that far behind him. Can Michael hold himself together enough to be the man Ryan needs, or will he lose his equilibrium while trying to be man enough to hold on to the one he loves?

This is taking me ages to write up, but I better do it soon because I didn’t take many notes (because when I did I felt like I was at work, so I stopped) and I’m in danger of forgetting if I don’t. Overall this year’s festival was really enjoyable, and I’m not sure why that is. Certainly all the writing advice that was given out wasn’t anything new to someone like me, who spends a lot of time
procrastinating reading about writing online – write what you love, write what you want to read, read a lot, take notice of the world around you, etc. Despite that I still feel like I got a lot out of it.
