In late 2014 Prizm Books released my New Adult novel, Becoming Andy Hunsinger. Here’s the book’s summary:
“It’s 1976, and Anita Bryant’s homophobic ‘Save Our Children’ crusade rages through Florida. When Andy Hunsinger, a closeted gay college student, joins in a demonstration protesting Bryant’s appearance in Tallahassee, his straight boy image is shattered when he is ‘outed’ by a TV news reporter. In the months following, Andy discovers just what it means to be openly gay in a society that condemns love between two men and wonders if his friendship with Travis, a devout Christian who’s fighting his own sexual urges, can develop into something deeper.”
Sadly, Prizm Books went out of business in late 2016, and Becoming Andy Hunsinger was no longer available for purchase. But since I retained the rights to the book, I was able to sell publication rights to NineStar Press, a very fine house that I am really enjoying working with.
Now a new edition of Becoming Andy Hunsinger will be re-published next month. The book went through a thorough re-editing process, and though the guts of the book are the same, it’s a much better product than the original. I also like the new cover, which you see in this post.
