Available for Pre-Order: Depending on You, by J.E. Birk

Available February 7

DependingonYouCoverIt all started with a diabetic kid who wouldn’t stop eating cookies. And a best friend who’d just announced his bisexuality and hit on everything that moved. And a kind pediatric nurse with an amazing rack, a lying ex-boyfriend, and a nasty case of the chicken pox.

But mostly, it started at table 42.

When Benjy Moreland almost collapses during his restaurant shift, Dr. Kyle Penners wants nothing more than to take care of him… but if there’s one thing former foster kid Benjy values, it’s his independence. A dying man and a sick little boy force Kyle and Benjy to work together, and both of them have to make some important choices about what it means to depend on someone.

Backlist Bonanza: Saving Skylar Hand, by George Seaton

1400x2100Saving_Skylar_Hand_Final (1)Lifelong love of two boys growing up on the west-central Texas scrub, their lives entangled by the dynamic of families so starkly different.
Skylar Hand and Cody Pinnt share their lives upon the west-central Texas scrub. Both born to a cattle rancher’s life, their view of the world and their place in it, takes one down a path toward heady dreams of a future away from the land. The other sees worth only in trudging his days, as his daddy has, upon the land; his dreams confined to what he has known his entire life. Their love is sorely tested by the choices they make.

Joyfully Jay says: “I was captivated by this story from the very beginning. The beautiful characters, that fabulous storyline, the hope for love and a future, even the short, easy to read chapters all served to bring this story to life. I highly recommend Saving Skylar Hand by George Seaton.”

Indie Reviews says: “Mr. Seaton gifts the reader with a beautifully written and tender holiday tale of lifelong friendship between two boys that are separated by the life choices they make as young adults, only to realize that their love for one another is immutable and that they cannot spend their lives apart.”

Rainbow Book Reviews says: “I totally fell in love with this wonderfully paced, coming of age tale of two Texas boys struggling to find themselves and their place in the world.”
