Silent Sin Release Day!
Silent Sin, my novel set in the fledgling film industry of the early 1920s, releases today, and I couldn’t be more excited. I love these two men so much–and the gorgeous cover, by Natasha Snow, perfectly captures the time, place, and mood of the book.
The book is available in wide release now, but on March 10th, although the paperback will continue wide, the ebook will be exclusive to Amazon and enrolled in Kindle Unlimited, so if you’re a non-‘Zon reader, now’s the time to grab it!
When tailor Marvin Gottschalk abandoned New York City for the brash boomtown of silent-film-era Hollywood, he never imagined he’d end up on screen as Martin Brentwood, one of the fledgling film industry’s most popular actors. Five years later a cynical Martin despairs of finding anything genuine in a town where truth is defined by studio politics and publicity. Then he meets Robbie Goodman.
Robbie fled Idaho after a run-in with the law. A chance encounter leads him to the film studio where he lands a job as a chauffeur. But one look at Martin and he’s convinced he’s likely to run afoul of those same laws—laws that brand his desires indecent, deviant… sinful.
Martin and Robbie embark on a cautious relationship, cocooned in Hollywood’s clandestine gay fraternity, careful to hide from the studio boss, a rival actor, and reporters on the lookout for a juicy story. But when tragedy and scandal rock the town, igniting a morality-based witch hunt fueled by a remorseless press, the studio brass will sacrifice even the greatest careers to defend their endangered empire. Robbie and Martin stand no chance against the firestorm—unless they stand together.
