New Year, New News

My next book, Peter Darling, has a cover, a release date, a Goodreads listing, and is up for preorder! Check out the gorgeous cover by Natasha Snow below:


Ten years ago, Peter Pan left Neverland to grow up, leaving behind his adolescent dreams of boyhood and resigning himself to life as Wendy Darling. Growing up, however, has only made him realize how inescapable his identity as a man is.

But when he returns to Neverland, everything has changed: the Lost Boys have become men, and the war games they once played are now real and deadly. Even more shocking is the attraction Peter never knew he could feel for his old rival, Captain Hook—and the realization that he no longer knows which of them is the real villain.

I’ve been working hard on edits for Peter Darling for the last couple months, and I’m so excited to share it with you all in February. Amanda and I have also been recording a podcast about the process of editing it, to be released after the book comes out, which will hopefully be interesting for anyone who’s curious about the various stages of editing and how a book goes from idea to finished product.

This will be my first full-length novel! (!!!) I’m also working on a contemporary F/F novel with a trans protagonist, which will be released in 2018 with Riptide Publishing.

This has been a pretty amazing year for me, all things considered. I’ve had the opportunity to connect with tons of lovely people and been honored by the folks who have reached out with kind words about Coffee Boy, my first standalone novella. I can’t say thank you enough to everyone who’s read, purchased, and talked about the book—it truly means so much that I can write a story with a snarky trans protagonist and that people will read it. Honestly, I was primed to accept that writing from my experiences would mean no one would touch it. Y’all proved me wrong, and I’m so extremely grateful for that. ♥

In 2017, I’ll be graduating college and going on the road a lot—my friend Keezy Young is an extraordinarily talented queer comic artist and I’ll be staffing her table at various conventions, as well as hopefully selling my own books at some cons in the second half of the year. I’ll keep updating my convention schedule as we confirm when and where we’re going, and if we happen to come to your town, I’d love to say hi!

That’s all for now. May you have a wonderful new year!
– Austin
