I’m going to be an Englishman in New York…!!
Well not really, I’ll be in California but I couldn’t resist the title. I’m a huge Sting fan and love this song.
I’ve only been to the US once back in 1999. I did a whistle stop ten-day tour of New York, New Orleans, Kentucky and Disneyland Florida. The best trip of my life. And now I’m coming to California for the California Dreamin’ Conference. I’ll also be a guest speaker and talk to the audience about two topics close to my heart.
This all came about because of my collaboration with Hollywood actor and producer Nicholas Downs. My latest release, Sight Unseen, was written as a novel based on his original script and we plan on adapting this to film to writing the screenplay together.
He’ll be here too on Saturday 25th March at around 4 pm, signing Sight Unseen with me. So if you’re a Mr Downs fan, and who isn’t, come along and meet him personally.
These are the topics I’ll be chatting about
Friday night, 24th March from 7 – 7:50 pm THE EVER-CHANGING LANDSCAPE OF M/M ROMANCE — Join Susan Mac Nicol, bestselling author of over a dozen M/M romances, including the popular Men of London series, for a frank but casual chat about this growing sub-genre and all its intricacies. Be prepared, no topic is off-limits.
Then from 8-8:50 pm, THE BRITISH INVASION — UK Author, Susan Mac Nicol, has crossed the big pond and an entire continent, to dish about all things British. Whether you’re writing Regencies, Victorians, or want a contemporary British setting, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to talk to a ‘local’ about locations, characters, history, food…and even the proper spellings to keep your reader engaged.
The California Dreamin’ event takes place Friday 24 – March 26
There’ll also be a very special signing event at The Abbey, an iconic gay club in West Hollywood. It’s a stunning venue and Nicholas and I will be signing in the Cabana Bar.
This takes place on the 23rd March at 4 pm, no doubt I’ll be jet-lagged having just arrived the night before. I’ll need plenty of Red Bull. Nicholas and I will be there to enjoy ourselves, meet fans, sign books, chat and have some fun. If you’re in the area, please pop down and say hi.
I’m truly excited and I do hope if you’re in the area, you can make it. It would be wonderful to meet anyone that reads my books or watches Nicholas’s films.
And this is what all the fuss is about. My latest release, Sight Unseen.
#SightUnseen #MMRomance #FriendstoLovers
Tragedy brings together a reserved but brilliant sculptor and an outgoing gallery owner, friends whose love was sidetracked but was always meant to be deeper.
SoCal natives, Nate and Cody have been friends since childhood. Both knew they were different—and the same. At seventeen, a stolen weekend in the Florida Keys drove their connection deeper and hotter than either could imagine. They were meant to be together. Then, for reasons only Nate knows, suddenly they weren’t.
They’re still friends. Best friends. But they’ve moved on and found other partners. The yearning remains, however, despite the long-ago secret that drove them apart, when tragedy strikes, both men find themselves in the dark. They must grope their way back to who and what they are…which they will find in each other’s arms. Sometimes, losing one’s sight can open one’s eyes—and heart.
The house was oddly quiet, which was worrying. Nate was nowhere to be seen; there was only a strange, rhythmic sound emanating from down the hall—Nate’s bedroom.
I frowned at the noise and started toward his bedroom door. A sudden sense of fear that he’d fallen and hurt himself, perhaps misjudged a step—made my skin tingle and my step quicken.
I knew I should call out, warn him I’d invaded his space, but I was scared if I did, I’d startle him and make things worse. He could be shaving and I’d hate for him to cut himself. So, taking the middle ground, I said nothing and gently pushed open his bedroom door, fully expecting him to grin and tell me he was Daredevil and he’d known I was there.
The sight that greeted my eyes is one I’ll remember as long as I live. Nate lay on the bed, legs spread wide, knees up, feet planted over the covers. His lithe, sun-kissed body glistened with sweat as he grasped his cock and jacked himself off. He had his ear buds in, and his eyes were half closed, lips parted and the look on his face…
I nearly came there and then.
