"Safe Harbor," gay historical romance short, available now

My contribution to Dreamspinner's 2012 Advent collection, "Safe Harbor," is now available from DSP's site. Sailor Blake ran away from home seven years ago to avoid having to face his grief over his father's death or his tangle of romantic feelings for his best friend Tom. Now, his ship has come in to port on Christmas Eve, and he's going to get a second chance at family and love.

This story is a warm fuzzy blanket in prose form; the excerpt available on the site is a little bittersweet, but the sweet chases off the bitter by the story's end (spoilers!!!).

If you're in the mood for some nice cuddly Christmas fic, give it a try!

I wanted to leave feedback on amazon, but it's under my real name and dreamspinner sort of suffers the same uncomfortable factor of rl information that sort of squicks me when i'm used to online identities, but I really loved this story and I'm looking forward to all the things you've been saying that you're working on.

I finally got time to read your story this morning, and I loved it! I've spent the day in a warm Christmassy mood, and even the weather seemed to agree - we had our first snowfall this morning. Thank you!
