Hi, Lillian Francis here, and
I’ve popped in to show off my amazing cover for my novel, New Lease of Life,
coming soon from Dreamspinner Press.
But first the Blurb.
Phillip used to laugh a lot, back when his friends
called him Pip. However the good deed that left him hospitalized not only
marred his body, it stripped him of his good humor too. Ever since, he has
pushed his friends away and shut out the world. Donating his vintage clothing
to a charity shop should have been the final act in a year-long campaign to
sever the links with the man Pip used to be, but the stranger on his doorstep
awakens feelings in Pip that he hasn’t experienced since the incident that left
him angry at the world and reliant on the cold metal of the hideous
hospital-issue crutch.

Colby forces his way into Pip’s life, picking at the scab of his past. Colby
isn’t interested in Pip’s money or his expensive address. He has only one goal:
to make Pip smile again. With every moment in Pip’s presence, Colby chips away
at the walls Pip has built around himself. Pip knows it’s impossible to fight
his attraction with Colby’s sunny disposition casting light into the darkness
in his soul.
Drum roll please.

About the Author
Lillian Francis. Author of
gay romance. Happy Endings guaranteed. Eventually.
Lillian
Francis is an English writer who likes to dabble in many genres but always
seems to return to the here and now.
Her
name may imply a grand dame in pink chiffon and lace, but Lillian is more at
home in jeans, Converse, and the sort of T-shirts that often need explaining to
the populous at large but will get a fist bump at Comic-Con. Lillian is a self-confessed
geek who likes nothing more than settling down with a comic or a good book,
except maybe writing. Given a notepad, pen, her Kindle, and an infinite supply
of chocolate Hob Nobs and she can lose herself for weeks. Romance was never her
reading matter of choice, so it came as a great surprise to all concerned,
including herself, to discover a romance was exactly what she’d written, and
not the rollicking spy adventure or cozy murder mystery she always assumed
she’d write. Luckily there is always room for romance no matter what plot bunny
chooses to bite her, so never say never to either of those stories appearing.
Lillian
lives in an imposing castle on a windswept desolate moor or in an elaborate shack
on the edge of a beach somewhere, depending on her mood. And while she’d love
for the heroes of her stories to either be chained up in the dungeon or
wandering the shack serving drinks in nothing but skimpy barista aprons more
often than not they are doing something far less erotic like running charity
shops and shoveling elephant shit.
Drawn
to the ocean, although not in a Reginald Perrin sort of way, she would love to
own a camper van and to live by the sea.
