COVER REAVEAL: Where I Belong

Cover Reveal

It’s getting exciting around here!!  LOL. I know it’s not world peace or anything, but I do have my very first cover to show off. Fulfilling a lifelong dream is an occasion to celebrate, so here I sit at my laptop with a glass of champagne and a self-satisfied grin.

Before we get to the actual cover, I want to say a few quick thank yous. To the countless teachers and librarians who encouraged my love of words and never gave me any reason to believe I couldn’t tell a story of my own, thank you. To the late, great Dr. John Cummins, English professor extraordinaire, who pushed me to be better, to give more, and to never be satisfied with good enough, I hope you knew how grateful I was for your advice and attention. And to Sunshine Smartypants, you have been my everything for my entire adult life, there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t thank God for putting us together in that awful calculus class.

Without further ado,

Where I Belong will be available from JMS-Books

Blurb

Bestselling author and erstwhile musician Harper Ellison started running from his troubled past before he graduated high school. When his sister tracks him down ten years later, Harper hesitantly agrees to visit the family and small North Carolina community that rejected him when he needed them most.

Life has taught Harper to avoid relationships, but he can’t seem to ignore his attraction to Lucas Rhodes, the buff, blond social worker living on his grandparents’ farm. Lucas quickly becomes an anchor in the maelstrom created by Harper’s homecoming. Together they wade through the grief and loss Harper buried six-feet deep just a few miles from his childhood home.

Choosing to forgive is the only way Harper will ever find peace, but can he learn that lesson before it’s too late?

I am pleased to report that my first M/M romance, Where I Belong, has been accepted for publication. Squee! I’m not sure what I am allowed to say at this point, but here is the unedited, and probably unintelligible, blurb…

Where I Belong by Jae Moran

Bestselling author and erstwhile musician Harper Ellison started running from his troubled past before he graduated high school. When his sister tracks him down ten years later at the request of his dying mother, Harper hesitantly agrees to visit the family and small North Carolina community that rejected him when he needed them most.

Harper doesn’t do relationships, but he can’t ignore his attraction to Lucas Rhodes, the buff, blond social worker living on his grandparents’ farm. Lucas quickly becomes Harper’s anchor in the maelstrom of his homecoming. Together they wade through the wreckage as Harper confronts the pain he buried six-feet deep a few miles from his childhood home.

Accepting that no amount of apology or regret will ever change the past, choosing to forgive is the only way Harper will ever find peace. But, can he learn that lesson before it’s too late?

Just so you can get into my mind’s eye, here’s my character collage….

Harper has dark hair and light blue-gray eyes. As a  runner, Harper has a lithe, graceful and relatively slender frame. Lucas, on the other hand, is tall and blond with dark hazel eyes and a more muscular, powerful body. He is a surfer with a golden tan and his hair is highlighted by the sun.

I’m sure I will have more to say soon… My excitement is kinda getting away from me today, and I couldn’t resist sharing my joy.
