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.

Begin at the Beginning

With Google’s draconian changes to Blogger’s content policies regarding mature, adult, explicit or pornographic content, I’ve decided to jump ship and start over at WordPress. Writing M/M, romance or otherwise, I will inevitably and probably innocently run afoul of the new rules sooner or later so here we are.

Being nearly unpublished, I’m not sure what I’ll be posting but you never know when I’ll have stuff to say. Some of it will be worth the effort and some won’t but it will always be honest and from the heart.

I will take this opportunity to promote my Don’t Read In The Closet 2014: Love’s Landscapes story from last year — Measuring the Rein. The M/M Romance Group over at Goodreads does an amazing job producing this HUGE event. Each year about 200 free stories are written, collected, edited, and produced by volunteers. Last year that totaled almost 5 MILLION words. Amazing.

Here’s the preview trailer…
