Release Date: Acting on Love

Hey, everyone! I know I've been quiet lately, but it's because I've been deep in my writing cave. Now, I've got some great news, so I'm peeking out of my cave to share. I'm thrilled to announce that there is now a release date set for Acting On Love, a new novella to the Conquest series. As of this moment, it's scheduled to release at MLR Press on March 27th. Woo hoo!

The story is about 34,000 words, running around 80 pages. It's a very sweet story focused around Brandon Alexander and Shunichi Miyamoto. But I guess rather than telling you all that, I can just share the blurb so you can get a feel for the story :-)

So without further ado and with much happiness, I present the blurb and cover for Acting on Love!

Brandon Alexander has risen to the top of theatre in Chicago, but when you reach the top, there’s usually only one way left to go. Funding fell through on the latest play he was to star in and now he finds himself an unemployed actor. Coming fresh off a bad audition, he wonders if his time in the spotlight is over. But what worries him more, is not making the man he loves proud of him.

Shunichi Miyamoto runs a highly successful dojo. He had always let work be the focus of his life, until over a year ago, the man of his dreams walked into the dojo to rekindle his passion for karate, and it led to further passions between him and Brandon. He knows Brandon is worried about his career, but he loves him, he’s proud of him, and he’ll do anything for Brandon’s happiness.

Both Brandon and Shunichi want to spend their lives together, but when a new opportunity comes to Brandon, he must decide whether to follow his career dreams or to act on his love for Shunichi.
