I would place this under my superhero collection if there was another one ready. There isn’t. I have several superheros – Green Cloak, Kura, Digi-Fix, Hurrican – that would do well becoming fully formed stories. But they haven’t really gotten anywhere. All of them exist though.
Dove is a completed novel. And a separate world from the rest. The rewrite is done even. It looks amazing and could be set up for publishing soon. Once I finish reviewing it five or six more times.
If you are interested in beta reading it for me, I can easily send a copy out.
Icarus has few desires in his life (except -of course- flying through the sky). He completes his work and survives his father’s desires for him. Icarus doesn’t really look forward to the future. Not that he seek to erase it. It is more, the future is there neither terrifying nor exciting. Then again… how long can Icarus put off his father’s desires before he ends up losing everything? What exactly is Dad seeking?
Joe wants a stable life with a stable boyfriend and a stable career. He does not truly think Icarus can help him. After learning the truth about Icarus being a human with bird wings and being the son of Bird Man, Joe really cannot leave the guy alone. Plus the guy’s cute. Can’t blame a guy for looking. Joe knows not to touch (or expect).
With ‘Dad’ ie Bird Man making things difficult for the new friends and the interest of Big Ben, a corporation competing with Homer Industries, these two will have a lot more in their near future than they even thought possible. Surviving seems likely- Icarus always has before- but can they come out better for it not just alive?
Need a better cover and more review. The word count for the second draft is 136,773. The first draft only hit 98,558. It may or may not be split up depending on if I want this leaning more on fantasy genre or romance.
Dove is a men loving men romance between an asexual man and gay man. It is also urban fantasy taking place somewhere in USA. Picking the proper genre is going to be tough.
And I hope to have that Happily Ever After needed for romance. The ending isn’t quite HEA though.
