Gay Book Promotions and I are revealing the cover of Waking the Behr, the forthcoming addition to the Foothills Pride stories, today. Waking the Behr is the seventh standalone book in the series, and it revolves around Ben Behr, the second of the Behr brothers who head up Behr Construction in fictional Stone Acres, California, and the company’s newest client, Mitch O’Shea, a San Francisco entrepreneur. Here’s what the story’s about:
Both Ben and Mitch think they know exactly what they want. Turns out, they don’t even know their own hearts.
Good old boy Ben has dated women his entire life, while gay nightclub owner Mitch has never considered unsophisticated country boys his type. But after they start hanging out, the small-town contractor and the urban entrepreneur are both stunned by the electricity sparking between them.
As they step outside their comfort zones to spend time together, Mitch finds he enjoys rural car rallies, and Ben is intrigued by the upscale bars Mitch owns in San Francisco. When they share their lives and grow closer, they start to question the way they’ve always defined themselves. Then they kiss and fling open the door to love. Now they must step up and travel the road that may lead to happily ever after—even if that path isn’t one they ever expected to walk.
I wrote this book for those whose biological families have abused or abandoned them in order to give them hope. There is a family out there looking for you or even better you can gather other people who are in a similar situation and make your own family.
The bottom line in this novella is that no one has to be alone in life, but it’s up to us to find a caring, loving circle of people who support us in our endeavors.

Here‘s how viewpoint character Frank McCord describes himself in Frank at Heart:
The men in my family were clones of my grandfather as far as appearance went. We’re all tall, thin, and geeky, with prominent Adam’s apples, pale blue eyes, and dirt brown hair. The only differences began internally and seeped out externally as people got to know us. My grandfather was addicted to Stoker’s chewing tobacco and Jim Beam, but only indulged outside work hours. Dad, on the other hand, at least early in my life, found religion and shunned all things mind-altering, except the Good Book.
I’d strayed from the straight and narrow after my preteen years. But I didn’t advertise it. My persona as helpful Frank McCord had long ago marked and unsexed me around here. Coming out wouldn’t serve any purpose now.
So I had spent years watching men come and go without a problem. Not this time. This stranger I wanted to meet and get to know. But how did other men do that?
I was still working on the answer.
