Today I thought I'd share something from my forthcoming release: an MM contemporary novella called Wish You Were Here. I received the cover art this week, and a release date of 8 February 2017, so I look forward to revealing more about the story in the coming months.
In this scene, Oakley spots a stranger outside his family's holiday rental cottage.
Oakley was about to look away when a sudden movement caught his attention. He squinted through the glass. There was someone standing beneath the tree—a man judging by his silhouette. The oak was on cottage land, so no one but he and his parents should be there. He supposed it was one of the locals. If the owners didn’t rent the cottage often—which seemed likely given the state of disrepair—the villagers were probably used to coming and going as they pleased. The man’s presence didn’t bother Oakley, but a nagging feeling prompted him to go out and speak to him.
