Review for Summer Boys

I've been remiss in posting, but have been very, very busy. Tune in next time (hopefully) for details of my recent weekend at Outlantacon. Fun times had by all!

Today, however, I'd like to have a proud mama moment for my short story Summer Boys.
Ferris Stuart has two missions to accomplish while on vacation on Oahu: research for a new Hawaiian Islands themed hotel and have a little fun, something he hasn't had much of since his partner died two years ago. So far he's managed to halfheartedly accomplish the first task; however, he's failing miserably at the second. That is, until a charming islander shows him both the locale and how to start living again.

Originally writtern to raise money for the It Gets Better project, I'd been kept to an 8,000 word limit, which required a lot of trimming. The story wanted to be longer.

After the rights returned to me from the publisher, I was able to add the additional content that I longed to see, sending the word count to 13,000. Toss in a lovely Zathyn Priest at Scarlet Tie Designs cover, and Summer Boys is back again. Though I'm a bit late in posting, here's what Lucky at Mrs. Condit and Friends Read Books had to say about the story:
Eden tells a wonderful story for these two men. I was taken in by her descriptions, their passion, and coming to terms with their lives and how they fit together. Or don’t.
