Hey all! All the February titles from Bold Strokes Books (webstore) have launched widely, and that includes Three Left Turns to Nowhere! My novella, “Hope Echoes,” rounds out the trio of queer YA novellas included in the book, and as of this morning, you can head to your favourite brick-and-mortar or e-tailer of choice for a copy of your very own. I’ll also be doing a virtual launch tomorrow at Left Bank Books in St. Louis (where fellow author Jeffrey Ricker makes his home)! And, as always, if you want to keep up to date with releases from Bold Strokes Books, you can sign up for their newsletter.
What’s Three Left Turns to Nowhere? Well, I’m glad you asked.
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, by Jeffrey Ricker, J. Marshall Freeman, and ‘Nathan Burgoine
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.
It’s long been a dream of mine to take part in shared-world writing, and with this book—and the novellas by Jeffrey Ricker and J. Marshall Freeman—I’m stoked to launch “Hope Echoes” out into the world.
