QSFers David Connor and E.F. Mulder have a new MM fantasy romance out: Come to the Water.
Ask anyone in Eerie Falls, Louisiana, if the town lives up to its name, and they will tell you yes. Trees that never die, a voodoo priestess, a centenarian mortician who has come back from the dead on several occasions, the mystery surrounding an infant found in the town’s namesake waterfall, and the guardian of the falls who died to prevent anyone else being lost to the water … many local legends abound.
Keith-Aaron finds himself entangled in several of the legends upon meeting a handsome stranger named Bash, who is new to Eerie Falls but has a possible past connection. Life and death, heartbreak and romance, and a dog that might be a ghost … the two men will need every bit of magic and mystical guidance the townsfolk and enchanted locale can supply.
With all that’s thrown at them, can their growing affection thrive? When the water tries to take them, will they even survive?
Golden curly hair, brown eyes, and a wet pink tongue that licked Keith-Aaron’s chest, he sprang up within half a second, scrambled backwards, and fell against the closet door that slammed shut from his weight.
“I’m not afraid of you!” Keith-Aaron wondered if he could believe his eyes or any other sense. “Why is your breath so rank?”
It wasn’t Marc in actual form, not the one he’d been in when Keith-Aaron last saw his ex six months earlier. On the other hand, once again, that last encounter came to mind.
“A dog.” Keith-Aaron pressed himself harder against hollow-core wood. “You … you’re a dog.”
He was a dirty dog, his paws and his underbelly muddy enough to have left the brand-new bedclothes with paw prints and streaks of dirt.
David Connor: I feel blessed to have a creative mind, even if my thoughts and moods are often jumbled. I might sometimes not stick with “write what you know” but I always write what I feel, which often results in characters who struggle with uncertainty, anxiety, too many thoughts in their head, or other social issues, like me. I also write a lot about nature, animals, music, creative arts, and hope.
E.F. Mulder: E.F. and her writing partner, David Connor, have always been soap opera fans. Living in a small New York town, they both turned their love of the genre into books and short stories with romantic, soap opera-ish themes. Nothing beats a cliffhanger, a twist, a good mystery, and maybe an evil twin.
