COVER AND BLURB REVEAL: How to Love a Monster

Today I’m excited to share the cover and blurb of my next project: How to Love a Monster. The concept for this book (which will be my first full-length) has been haunting my subconscious for quite some time, and I’ve finally gotten up the courage to write it. It’s a little bit on the weird side—it’s speculative fiction, after all—but I hope those looking for something different will be interested in reading it.

The release is scheduled tentatively for late July or early August 2017. It is not yet available for pre-order, but you can add it to your to-read shelf on Goodreads HERE.

The Blurb

Dying at the hands of government goons was always going to happen. Waking up in a dark and twisted afterlife? Not the plan.

Seraphim has the superhuman ability to control his own brain. Or at least, he used to, before his government-mandated brain surgery. The surgery killed him, but life isn’t over yet. He’s just woken up, shivering and alone, in the rain-soaked alleyway of a city he doesn’t recognize.

Fiend is a childhood monster. Dreamed up by Seraphim’s friend Wish, he was imprisoned in Wish’s subconscious until the birth of Wish City, a place for people with superhuman abilities to take refuge after death. Now Fiend is free—and in charge—and he’s on the hunt for anyone with abilities once they cross over.

Eager to play with his new toy, Fiend quickly makes contact with Seraphim. Lost and injured, Seraphim lets Fiend slither into his heart. But under the aching pleasure the two find with each other is a hunger that can’t be denied, and lurking in the shadows of the neon city are truths neither man nor monster is ready to face.

How to Love a Monster is a gay erotic horror romance featuring twisted and kinky M/M sex, a diabolical love interest, and an HEA ending.

Expected word count: ~50,000
