First of all, I am grateful for K-lee’s friendship! We were roommates at the inaugural Rainbow Con in 2014 and have been best buds ever since! And I am grateful to her for hosting all of us this month.
One of the things I am most grateful for this year is the chance to be off work on Christmas Eve so we get to go home to my parents, in the small town I grew up in. I actually have the whole week off the work job, so I am looking forward to getting caught up on writing projects.
My family has always celebrated Christmas on Christmas Eve. When my brothers and I were younger, my mom said it was because she couldn’t get us to wait. When we grew up, we kept our Christmas Dinner on Christmas Eve so that we can go to in-laws on Christmas Day.
What’s your favorite Christmas tradition? Either now or when you were growing up? I’d love to hear. I’ll pick one winner from the comments below on December 19th to receive an eBook of your choice: A Place to Call Their Own, Disappear with Me, or my latest, Need Your Love.
In June, 1966, ACLU attorney Eron Lassiter attends his uncle’s wedding, and makes an unsettling discovery. Though he’d bowed to family pressure and has a potential marriage planned, his long-ignored attraction to other men roars to life when Garrett Emerson, the bride’s nephew, captures his attention.
After serving in the Korean War and going to college later than his peers, upwardly mobile Garrett is a loan officer at a local bank. For his girlfriend, fiancé in her mind, he can’t climb fast enough. But none of that matters to Eron, and maybe that’s why Garrett’s so drawn to him.
Can Eron and Garrett find happiness amidst the still pervasive culture of propriety, honor, and expectation in the 1960s?
