Just got news from Samhain Publishing, and Craving’s Creek, is coming out next year!
How do you return to a place you never really left?
Fourteen years ago, during a trip to Craving’s creek, a remote place in the woods, Ryde made a promise to Alistair, his best friend. He swore to him he’d never be alone in the world. It was the summer of their lives―the summer of their first kiss. And though Alistair’s religious parents said their only son was destined to serve God as a priest, Ryde told himself he’d blow up the Grand Seminary school before he ever let that happen…
Now, fourteen years later, Ryde’s life is a mess. He has a drinking problem, and hasn’t been able to forget what happened to Alistair at the creek. He can’t come to terms with the evil they encountered there on its shore. An evil so terrible, it scarred his life forever. He never saw Alistair again after that summer. Ryde spends his nights reliving that last day he saw Alistair’s eyes. The day Alistair was carried off into the woods.
Then a friend from the past announces her cousin is getting married, and the priest performing the ceremony is Father Alistair Genet. Everything comes back to Ryde, and though he’s up against the Church, the love he still feels for Alistair is stronger than anything. Stronger than God.
Now if he can just get Alistair to remember what they once had without breaking him apart.
