BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: Blue Umbrella Sky is a Lambda Literary Award Finalist!

Thrilled to wake up this morning to the news that my novel, BLUE UMBRELLA SKY, is a Finalist for a Lambda Literary Award in the Gay Romance category. Originally published by Dreamspinner Press, it's now being re-released in a new edition from Nine Star Press (available wide on March 23, but you can pre-order now here).

Milt Grabaur has left his life, home, and teaching career in Ohio to start anew. The Summer Winds trailer park in Palm Springs, butted up against the San Jacinto mountain range, seems the perfect place to forget the pain of nursing his beloved husband through Alzheimer’s and seeing him off on his final passage.

Billy Blue is a sexy California surfer type who once dreamed of being a singer but now works at Trader Joe’s and lives in his own trailer at Summer Winds. He’s focused on recovery from the alcoholism that put his dreams on hold.

When his new neighbor moves in, Billy falls for the gray-eyed man. His sadness and loneliness awaken something Billy’s never felt before—real love.

When a summer storm and flash flood jeopardize Milt’s home, Billy comes to the rescue, hoping the two men might get better acquainted…and maybe begin a new romance.

But Milt’s devotion to his late husband is strong, and he worries that acting on his attraction will be a betrayal.

View the full list of finalists here (and BIG congrats to all of you--I am honored to be in your company). Below are the finalists in the Gay Romance category. I encourage you to pick up their books!
