The show I'm in has opened and now I might have the brain power to gear up for NaNoWriMo. This, naturally, means I'm about to get hit with edits on my m/m/f novel Rose & Thorn (that will be released by Torquere Press around the new year). It's going to be a marathon run, I can tell.
Here's a little about Rose & Thorn:
Eamon Quinn is an actor with designs on a position with Rose & Thorn Theatrics. As a new university graduate, he's up to the acting challenge, but he's not so sure he's up to facing life in the big city. Fortunately, he quickly finds a friend in Jasper Davison. Jasper is intrigued by Eamon, sure that he's a fellow mountain-born soul, and that's something Jasper's been missing in coastal Yanuk. When both men are hired by Rose & Thorn, the kindred spirits soon become lovers--and catch the eye of the company's head apprentice, the pretty and precocious HJ Greenhills.
Bad luck plagues the theatre--accidents, injuries, and a sudden death--leading to rumors of a curse. Weaving sexual energy with Druid magic, Eamon and Jasper seek the truth behind the rumors. But confirming the curse is only the first hurdle. They need figure out who cast it and how to end it before it causes more harm. Even together, the two men aren't strong enough. Druid magic works best in threes, and so they seek HJ's help to lift the curse. The three put their bodies and energies together to call up the magic they need to set things right.
And on a completely unrelated note: It's St. Crispin's Day! I recommend celebrating by watching Branagh's Henry V and buying a new pair of shoes. "We few, we happy few..."
