Here is a very rough blurb for the story:
As a kid Astronomy professor, Marty Brooks, kept in touch for years with a pen pal who lived on the other side of the country. Eventually that pen pal stopped responding to Marty’s letters, which always ended with “Making a Wish” for Marty’s love of space.
Years later, Marty and his brother, big fans of a series of famous Sci-Fi movies, head to a convention for their mutual interests, especially meeting the hot actors that play the roles. Marty is interested in meeting an actor he knows is openly gay, but instead he bumps into the star of the movies, Sebastian Lookinland, who is gorgeous and not at all the snob Marty thought he was. They instantly connect and it’s obvious the attraction is mutual.
Before long Marty learns the world really is small when Sebastian reveals he is actually the pen pal from all those years ago. Marty and Sebastian begin an affair, Marty knowing it will end when the convention does. But Sebastian isn’t ready to say goodbye and suggests they stay connected through texts, emails, and weekend get-togethers. Marty can hardly refuse. Before long his heart is engaged. Will he make a wish for it to last for more than a few weeks?
This is going to be my last story for Amber Quill for the foreseeable future as I intend to be focusing on material for other publishers.
Right now I have November 22, 2015 as the release date for Making a Wish.
