UPDATE IN POST #13 =)
Hello! I've been gone a while and am back with a new book. It's currently being ripped by my writer's group and I'm working on the query and a WIP both. I've been struggling with the query because I've never written a romance novel (and as of now, I'm 99% sure that's what I wrote). Any and all critiques are welcome! I will critique back and plan to bop around the query forum, doing critiques as time permits =).
Kevin Sorensen's in love and it's all Shakespeare's fault. If he hadn't agreed to take over the fall play from the usual director he wouldn't have met Chad and his world wouldn't have been turned upside down. And he wouldn't be having nearly as much fun.
There was something about Chad from the moment he saw him. But the two are light night and day: Chad's comfortable being open about his support of gay rights and Kevin's not. Chad doesn't care about consequences, real or imagined, regarding who knows he's bi-sexual. Kevin's convinced that if the wrong person finds out, he's out of a job. And it doesn't help that Chad's folks are super cool with it and Kevin's parents are guarded in their acceptance. His mother would rather he find a nice girl but begrudgingly accepts that he prefers men.
By the time the right to marry goes before the supreme court, Chad has brought Kevin mostly out of his shell. Marriage rallies, PRIDE parades, they all become the norm. And when the students at Kevin's high school as him to be their administrative representative for a GSA, he realizes he needs to be a role model for them. Finally, Kevin joins up fully into the local LGBTQ movement. And when the marriage decision day finally arrives, he'll be able to celebrate in more ways than one!
