The Winter Quarters: Coming This Autumn!
I'm very happy to announce that my debut m/m romance The Winter Quarters will be out on October 15th of this year.
You can find the full summary below, but in short The Winter Quarters is about what happens when two childhood best friends take very different paths in life. It's a slow burn, second chance romance.
Because I am very excited, I've decided to give pre-order gifts to readers who support my first book. You can find details here. Everyone who lets me know they've pre-ordered will receive a thank you postcard designed by a Japanese artist, and one lucky winner will get a box of Japanese goodies, including teas, sweets, and skincare products.
The book takes place in Ishikawa, a beautiful prefecture in western Japan nestled between the sea and the mountains. Ishikawa is where I live, so all of the goodies and postcards will be coming straight from the setting of The Winter Quarters. I'm excited to share this with you!
The Winter Quarters: Summary
Reluctant socialite Kai has thirty-five days before his family starts shooting the next season of their reality TV show, revealing a life he’d rather keep private—and one that feels increasingly scripted. Desperately needing a break, Kai escapes to his childhood best friend Hiro Asada’s inn in rural Japan. He finds peace in the thousand-year-old hot springs, but his yearning for Hiro resurfaces at the worst time: Hiro is about to inherit the inn, and his parents expect him to marry within the year.
Hiro’s traditional family loves him for who he is, but they can’t imagine two men running the inn. Meanwhile, Kai has a TV contract his lawyer insists can’t be broken. Hiro and Kai need to think outside the box—and solve their problems before Christmas Day, when Kai’s show shoots its annual holiday special.
