I'm so excited to finally get to share this one with you. Eighteen months in the making, and What Happens in the Tavern Stays in the Tavern from Circlet Press is finally here! I got an email last week giving us fellow anthology authors very little warning with a happy surprise.
I'm trying not to read into it too much, but I'm just going to say that my story is first in the anthology of excellent adventuretime/sexytime stories.
Encounter at the Lonely Dragon
Gavin Thorne is returning to the questing life under duress of a failing economy, and he's not happy about it. But work is work, and Gavin figures getting back into professional adventuring is something he can handle. What he may not be ready to handle is sharing a loft with an ex-lover and having to confront all the pent up feelings that go with it, including the lingering sense of betrayal of a quest gone wrong.
It's very D&D inspired, and Gavin is a big grumpy idiot, but I kind of love it to death. I hope, when this long awaited collection finally arrives, you will to. It's out on the 27th: don't think I won't remind you.
