It never gets old, that feeling I get when I have a new release! It was no less exciting today when Phaze Books published a revised version of my gay historical novel, CANE. It has been released today as an ebook and will be coming out in late January as a print book.
Pieter Van Leyden grew up on a sugar cane plantation in the Caribbean. However, being brought up alongside the housekeeper’s slave family after his mother died, Pieter never accepted his father’s outlook on slavery.
When his boyhood friendship for the slave, Joss, turned to love, a chain of events begins that tears them apart. Joss and his family are sold and Pieter is sent in disgrace to his distant relatives in Amsterdam, where he fleetingly meets the American, Sebastian Cane.
Returning to the Caribbean after his father’s death, Pieter had hoped to find evidence of what had happened to Joss but it is too late. Pieter decides to start anew and heads for America where he finds more than he bargained for.
Even as he finds a new love, danger stalks his every move, and conflict threatens the nation. Can Pieter find a balance in his new life?
