Hi, I'm new :)

Hi, my name is Sarah, and I'm new to this com. I'm actually trying to publicise my own novels, the third of which has just been released. But I'm also trying to find new things to read myself :) So far my fave queer novel is Patience and Sarah, or Night Watch, can't choose. I've written three queer novels, the first (Me and Mine) about a priest who falls for a parishioner, the second (Ink)about two young men, both the victims of broken homes, parental death and substance abuse.

So, evil self promotion time. My third novel is called After the Fall (by Sarah Goodwin), and there's a link below to it.

When Connor wakes up in a hospital bed, he realises that the accident that broke his leg has also wiped his memory. His wife is a stranger, his dead parents just a photograph, and his home an unfamiliar, shabby place that smells of dog.

At a local support group for amnesiacs, Connor meets Nate, a fellow sufferer of retrograde amnesia. Nate has no memory, and no idea how he came to lose it, but he remains easy going, and Connor quickly considers the foulmouthed, chain-smoking Nate a friend.

But, when Nate makes a pass at him, Connor starts to question everything he’s learnt about himself. Is he really a happily married 32 year old, or are secrets being kept from him?

Who is the mysterious ‘Coop’ whose cryptic emails are still in his inbox? And why, on the day of his accident, was he driving with another man in his car? A man whose life, and death, are still a touchy subject at home.

When what you don’t know really can hurt you, who can you trust? A stranger? Or a stranger you’ve lived with for 9 years?
