I Wrote a Guest Post for Author Marie Sexton!

I was talking, of course, about Marie Sexton’s amazing works.

If you’ve read her novels, you know Ms. Sexton’s a fantastic author. Allow me to add that she’s a generous one as well for inviting me to guest post on her website!

Check out this post over on Marie Sexton’s blog!

And, of course, don’t forget to buy her blitheringly amazing novel Trailer Trash. One of its characters, Cody, reminds me of Connor. Well, okay, Connor if he’d lived a very different life. Similar personalities.

Oh, just read it. And read my guest post as well to hear about the difficulties of trying to advertise plot points without, you know, giving them away entirely.

Have I mentioned my book has LGBTQ elements? Because it does. Except they’re massive spoilers.

Okay, enough, go read!
