Do something new today.
Why he looks at his horoscope every day, Elias Hood doesn’t know. It’s all garbage, and no nickel fortune ever helped him climb all the way up the corporate ladder. He’s about to make Vice President. Rocking the boat with “something new” is the last thing on his mind.
But there’s this guy.
Ty Green can make friends with a tree and Elias can’t help falling for his easy-going vibe and his perfect smile. He’s a fellow Capricorn, like Elias, but that’s as far as their similarities go. Ty works to live–he doesn’t live to work. When Elias takes his horoscope’s advice and asks Ty out, both men are in for a shock. But as Elias’s walls start to come down, they might just realize that they have more in common than they think. In fact, they might even want the exact same thing.
Who knows? Maybe horoscopes aren’t just trash after all.
Thank you for hosting me today on my blog tour for my newest novella, Picture Winter!
Picture Winter features Ty, a garbage man, and Elias, a successful businessman on his way to becoming the Vice President of the company he works for. Both are Capricorns, but they have nothing in common. Or so they think.
Picture Winter is set mostly in Toronto, Canada. Why? Because I live there.
Well, to be honest, I live in the suburbs, but my day job is downtown Toronto, so I might as well live there! I do so much commuting that some days it feels like I do.
I like living in the suburbs. It’s quieter, there are less people, and it doesn’t smell like a mixture of pot, sewer water, BO, and garbage. Like me, Ty also likes living in the suburbs. He grew up in Toronto, but at the start of Picture Winter, he moves to a small rural town outside of the city. It makes his commute to work longer, but it’s worth it for the peace and quiet.
Elias, on the other hand, doesn’t care where he lives as long it’s close to his place of work. He’s the type of person who doesn’t like things that waste his time, and commuting is a major time waster.
On first glance, Ty and Elias have nothing in common. Pick up Picture Winter today from MLR Press, Amazon, or your favourite e-tailer and find out just how little—or how much—they actually do have ib common.
