This week, I’m excited to introduce you to Press START to Play by Briana Lawrence. I'll let Briana tell you more about the story:
"Press START to Play is my first gay romance short story and was featured as part of a 'Daily Dose' anthology - a collection of 30 other stories so that readers had one a day. I was also lucky enough to have an alternate cover drawn by Ann Uland of Arbitrary Muse Comics."
Lukis Singleton’s once-popular sports column is fading fast, thanks to the terrible track record of the local football team. In an attempt to save the column, Lukis's editor, John, decides he needs to go in a different direction. Video games are all the rage these days, so John insists that sending Lukis to a huge video-game tournament in Los Angeles will shake up his current readers and bring in new ones. Lukis isn’t thrilled about reporting on games with impossible powers or gamers who still live in Mom’s basement, but then he meets a tempting flaw in the gaming stereotypes of unwashed man-children. Aaron Sanders is a gorgeous breath of fresh air at the tournament who takes Lukis’s less-than-stellar view of gamers and turns it on its head, leaving Lukis to wonder if it might be worth being Aaron’s player two.
