Gay / Lesbian Romance | Gay / Lesbian Paranormal

Jonathan Williams has inherited Trevaglan Farm from a distant relative. With his best friend, Alayne, in tow, Jonathan returns to the estate to take possession, meet the current staff, and generally learn what it’s like to live as the landed gentry now. He’d only been there once before, fourteen years earlier. But that was a different time, he’s a different person now, determined to put that experience out of his mind and his heart….

The locals agree that Jonathan is indeed different from the lost young man he was that long ago summer, when he arrived at the farm for a stay after his mother died. Back then the hot summer days were filled with sunshine, the nearby ocean, and a new friend, Nat. Jonathan and the farmhand had quickly grown close, Jonathan needing comfort in the wake of his grief, and Nat basking in the peace and love he didn’t have at home.

But that was also a summer of rumors and strange happenings in the surrounding countryside, romantic triangles and wronged lovers. Tempers would flare like a summer lightning storm, and ebb just as quickly. By the summer’s end, one young man was dead, and another haunted for life.

Now Jonathan is determined to start anew. Until he starts seeing the ghost of his former friend everywhere he looks. Until mementos of that summer idyll reappear. Until Alayne’s life is in danger. Until the town’s resident witch tells Jonathan that ghosts are real. And this one is tied to Jonathan unto death…

Re: Lover's Knot

I found your story of how you developed Lovers' Knot facinating. It seemed to come from such a simple beginning of the wrist being held. Writers must be constantly on the alert for inspiration, so hearing how simply it can sometimes start is intriguing.

My favorite song by Mama Cass! We never know when our dreams will help us.

I think it is amazing how some peoples minds and love how eneryone processes this differently, I do not think I could come up with the stuff that authers do but I do enjoy reading it. Your book looks good and I'll be adding it to my summer book list.

Amazing how clear things can become in
that half light state when our
consciousness is half in the dream world
and half awakened.

I've always heard that your subconscious solves your problems for you while you sleep. It's a good thing that you had your laptop running!! The storyline sounds interesting, and I'm sure it flows quite nicely. Good job!!

Research is the backbone of any piece of fiction set historical in a place and time. Without a frame to anchor a story, it can go anywhere, but eventually you have to choose and allow the reader to follow.

Wow! I'm impressed; not that you had a great story from a dream, but that you put in an additional two years of careful crafting and turned it into a book. Well done.
