Three Left Turns to Nowhere will be out next month (how did that happen?) and as of today, there is a listing on NetGalley (click here to hop right there). If you don’t know what NetGalley is, it’s a digital ARC platform—ARCs are Advance Reader Copies, meant for reviewers so there are reviews of a title before it’s officially released, which generates buzz—and you can sign up, request books, and review them ahead of the books release (or, if you’re anything like me, months and months later when you finally catch up to your to-be-read pile).
If you don’t know what Three Left Turns to Nowhere is? I got you.
Three strangers heading to a convention in Toronto are stranded in rural Ontario, where a small town with a subtle kind of magic leads each to discover what he’s been searching for.Three Left Turns to Nowhere
Ed Sinclair and his friends get stuck in Hopewell after their car breaks down. It’s snark at first sight when he meets local mechanic Lyn, but while they’re getting under each other’s skin, the town might show them a way into one another’s hearts.
Rome Epstein is out and proud and clueless about love. He’s hosting a giant scavenger hunt at the convention, but ends up in Hopewell. When the town starts leaving him clues for its own scavenger hunt, he discovers a boy who could be the prize he’s been searching for.
Fielding Roy has a gift for seeing the past. His trip to reunite with friends hits an unexpected stop in Hopewell, but a long-lost love letter and two local boys give him a chance to do more than watch the past. This time, Fielding might be able to fix the present.
I wrote the third novella in the book, “Hope Echoes,” the one with Fielding Roy. He has a knack for seeing the past replay itself, and after getting stuck in Hopewell, Fielding bumps into a long-lost queer love letter a girl wrote. My novella isn’t a romance—I feel nervous not mentioning that, given how much anything gay comes with a heightened expectation of romance—but rather a mystery, as Fielding, and two local boys and the people they know, try to figure out who wrote the letter, and how to get it to the person it was for in the first place.
