Hello, and welcome to Day 1 of the Out in the Rockies m/m Blog Tour! Eight Colorado authors of gay romance have teamed up to bring you two weeks worth of fun and prizes. To kick things off, I have Carter Quin on my blog, talking about his new release, The Way Back.
Hello, everyone! Welcome to the inaugural post of the Out in the Rockies Blog Hop! This is my virgin experience with a blog hop, but I know I couldn’t be in better hands than Marie Sexton’s. Unless they were Matt’s. If I could just figure out a way to get Jared out of the picture and bring Matt to life, everything would be perfect. Except I’d probably screw something up and manifest Cole instead. Now wouldn’t that be fun—in entirely the wrong way!
I thought I’d talk a little about my novel, The Way Back, since it releases today at Dreamspinner Press. As you can see from the blurb, Riley’s life is rocked to the core when his ex comes out of the woodwork wanting him back. Problem is, Riley has just started a new relationship with his longtime friend Jason (who would shoot me if I called him an “old” friend).
The idea of a returning ex isn’t a new one, but it is one that hits home to me. You see, the idea for the book came from me wondering just what I would do if my own “Eric” suddenly called or showed up one day. This is the guy who took me with him to, and I quote, “break up with my girlfriend so I can spend more time with my boyfriend.” Needless to say, I waited in the car. We never got as far as Riley and Eric did, but the pain was just as real when it was finally over. Alas, my “Eric” will never follow in my fictional Eric’s footsteps. He’s still busy reigning as Queen of Denial, complete with wife number two and a passel of kids. But then again, maybe he was only Gay For Me, just not gay enough, ya know? But I’m cool with that because all these years later, he gave me (and you, if you so choose) Riley, Jason and Eric. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
