Jay Bell here, and I have a confession. I hate winter. The season is frigid, miserable, and soulless… just like my first boyfriend. Ha! But seriously, I never feel quite like myself in cold weather. A hot summer night can make me feel like I’m a teenager again, but freezing temperatures have me impersonating old man winter.
Life is what you make of it though, so I thought you guys could defrost this icy heart of mine and help me see the bright side of winter. There’s a prize to be had too! Leave a comment below, telling me something wonderful and optimistic about winter, and you can win a paperback or eBook copy of my newest book, Something Like Winter. With a title like that, you’d think it’s full of blizzards and snowmen, but lucky for me, it’s set in Texas. They don’t have proper winters down there, no matter what the natives might claim.
If you’re curious about the book, Jenre reviewed it here. This contest is open to everyone in the world. Even Texans!
There are two sides to every story. When you’re Tim Wyman, sometimes there are three.
Tim hoped moving to Texas would mean a new beginning, a chance to spread his wings, but he soon finds himself falling into the same tired patterns. Until he meets recklessly brave Benjamin Bentley. Suddenly a whole new world opens up to Tim—love, sex, warmth… home. Certain that society won’t understand what he and Ben have together, Tim struggles to protect their relationship, even if it means twisting the truth. As his lies slowly push Ben away, Tim learns that the greatest enemy can come from within. Buried beneath a decade of deceptions, Tim must claw his way to the surface in the hopes of learning to fly.
Something Like Winter, the companion novel to Something Like Summer, tells the story from Tim Wyman’s perspective, revealing new private moments and personal journeys.
