Announcing My New Novella; “Derek”

So you are hearing about it here first. This December my new novella, “Derek,” will be released. And guess what? It will be FREE.

And it’s not a short story either. I don’t know just what the page count will be since I haven’t seen the galley yet, but it’s a good length. It is an original story, introducing two new characters. But also you will see cameo appearances by a number of characters from previous stories. I feel very honored that Dreamspinner Press is willing to do this. In fact they’ve been more than willing. They’ve done what any publisher does when presented with a manuscript, including multiple edits, layouts and more.

And part of that “more” is the cover, which was done by Paul Richmond. But what really excites me is that this is more step in my MM career. I designed the cover! And what really makes it shine is the excellent and amazing photography of Dave Suntown, who graciously licenced the picture to me for my use.

Upon seeing the model I was stunned at how much he was the man I had envisioned in my mind. OMG! I thought. That’s Derek!

So here it is! The cover of “Derek,” to be released this December as my gift, and Dreamspinner Press’s gift, to you! I hope you enjoy!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays (early),
BG Thomas

Help Me Name A Character (or Two?)

He’s a movie star.

Think Matthew McConaughey or Brad Pitt or a young Robert Redford! Driving me CRAZY!

Something sexy but real. Something to suggest old Hollywood maybe. First and last names preferred, even if I wind up mixing and matching!

He won’t be sympathetic at first, but with time he will change. He is driven. He wants to be a BIG star. And if a few people get hurt on the way? Ah well. Eventually he will see the light though, just like all my characters do.

This is a man that wants to be one of the biggest stars ever. And he is talented. He is a very good actor. Think Russell Crow–he’ll start off as a bit of an asshole and then learn some life lessons and become a better man.

Hey! I write about redemption!

And how about this guy?

He’s a bartender with big dreams. Works in Kansas City but wants the big time in New York City.

In the meantime he’s doing everything he can to get there.

And I do mean everything….
