OS Welcome to Jane Darius here to talk about their new book!
Hi, everyone! I’m Jane Darius, and I’m so excited to be revealing the cover of my first novella, This Must Be the Place! I started writing about Nick and Ben for Dreamspinner’s 2014 Advent Calendar Celebrate! in a short story called “Love Light,” which you can buy here (link to: https://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/books/love-light-by-jane-darius-2340-b). The short story takes place well into their relationship, but the novella reveals how everything started from their first meeting to their first kiss to their first time (and all the awkwardness in between). I hope you like the book!
“Having explosive sex is easy for Nick and Ben—getting past their hang-ups and opening up to each other won’t be.
Handsome New York City bartender Nick might’ve left life—and his abusive, homophobic father—in West Virginia far behind, but even though he was a star quarterback in high school, he can’t outrun the effect those years had on him. He’s still not comfortable as a gay man, and he keeps his relationships short… as in a single night.
Hotel reviewer Ben is a hopeless romantic, but he can’t seem to find a guy who feels the same. After being cheated on again, he doesn’t expect to spend forever with Nick, but even their one-nighter doesn’t go off without a hitch. Ben falls asleep on Nick’s couch, and in the morning, they have to face their hookup that wasn’t… and the fact that there’s a connection between them whether they’re looking for one or not.”
Jane is giving away one free copy of the book to one lucky commenter who leaves a comment! * One name will be drawn to win via email.
Jane Darius is a writer and dreamer who wants to travel the world. If you try to talk to Jane when she’s writing, she will probably get scared like you just snuck up on her. Someone once told her that writing is like being alone in a dark room. She understands the sentiment but prefers to think of it as sitting by a warm fire while her characters tell her their stories.
When she’s not working on fiction, Jane is a freelancer, writing for many different websites, magazines, and other publications. In her spare time, she loves to go out to dinner, spend time with her friends, family, and cat, and yell at her favorite TV shows. You can follow Jane at janedarius.tumblr.com.”
