Of Autumn Leaves and New Beginnings

Of Autumn Leaves and New Beginnings

You know how I always say Sundays are for reading and tea. I have an addendum: autumn Sundays are even more for tea and reading. And even better? If the book is set in fall.

So if you need something to read today, a story set in fall, something low-angst, second chances, two guys in their forties falling in love, I recommend this:

Sometimes love finds you even when you’re not looking for it.

At 47, Oren Walker isn’t looking for love. When he knocks on Pete Higgins’ door, all he wants is to thank him for helping his mom after she broke her femur. He never expected that one look at the man would make his knees weak and heart flutter.

Pete is happy—albeit a bit lonely—after divorcing his wife of 20 years and isn’t looking to replace her. But when Oren shows up, all grateful and handsome and in that fancy suit, the longing for the deep connection of a relationship flares up inside him.

As the leaves turn yellow, Oren and Pete spend a lot of time in honest conversations. Their attraction grows. Will the two men recognize the promise of new beginnings, and take the chance to find the happiness they both deserve?

So why not make a cup of tea (or other hot beverage of choice), light a few candles, maybe put on a YouTube fire (or an actual fire if you’re lucky enough to have one), and read Orin and Pete’s story?

Happy Sunday 🙂

Wrapping up 2019

In 2019, I’ve had eleven individual releases and my stories have been featured in three anthologies.

Think about that for a minute.

Yes, one book is a re-release, so “only” ten new stories. Two are under 10K words. The longest book is only 34032 words and a collab with Kris T. Bethke so I only wrote about half of those words because she wrote the rest. But it’s still a lot. It’s still 185 685 words in one year.

I wrote and published my first fantasy and paranormal stories in 2019. And my first M/M/M story. I wrote about 40+ characters, about age gap, about a fluffy bunny shifter, about a party boy who wanted more in life. I wrote about a homophobic family and an awesome ex-wife. I wrote about star-crossed lovers and about the fear that can grip you when you’re at risk of losing the love of your life.

All that…and I still found the time to move across the world.

I mean. Look at this:

Nells 2019

So maybe I don’t need to feel bad for not writing much the last three months of the year (because of the move from Malaysia back to Sweden)? And maybe, we can all agree that this many releases in one year is a bit…excessive?

That being said. OH MAH GAWD, I released eleven books this year. How awesome am I?

Have you read them all? Which one was your favorite?

Thank you, all, for this year, I could never do this without you. I hope you will stay with me for the next year, maybe even for the next, new decade.

Happy New Year to you all. Don’t commit to resolutions you’ll break before February, and if you celebrate the coming of 2020 with a glass of champagne, think of me 😉

Romance isn’t just for the young

Who says only twentysomethings are allowed their happy endings? Not me, that’s for sure. So if you want to read about guys in their late forties, who knows what they want in life, who aren’t interested in playing games or drama, and just want to live out the rest of their lives with a good man by their sides, may I suggest either of these books? 🙂

Team Luker

What if this is the last time we lie like this?

Uncertainty is keeping Ellery Luker awake at night and robbing him of his appetite. It’s been five days since the love of his life and partner of twenty-five years, Jools, went to the doctor. Five days since the biopsy. Five days of going crazy with worry and what ifs?

What if Jools suffers from the same disease that stole Ellery’s mother when he was just eleven?

What if all Ellery’s worst fears come true?

What if…?

Of Autumn Leaves and New Beginnings

Release day!!

What if this writer was up until 4AM writing last night, and what if she was woken up super early (early considering her bedtime) by an irritated guard calling about a delivery, and you had to discuss that particular delivery with him. What if she couldn’t go back to sleep, so instead she had a little breakfast and then her husband started a huge project that she had to help with and that took all day. If that had happened, would it be so strange if she forgot about the release of her book today?

I’m not saying it did happen…but I’m also not saying it didn’t. 😂

Let’s not dwell on that little detail now. 😁 Let’s instead focus on Oren and Pete, and my new story Of Autumn Leaves and New Beginnings.

Early reviews say this about the book:

“Of Autumn Leaves and New Beginnings is full of heart, and lovely prose. Iris is so good at drawing her readers in with her relatable characters and storylines.”

The Novel Approach Reviews

“Nell Iris is able to craft a beautiful love story in novella form and it’s a real skill. This one was extra lovely because both protagonists were nearly 50, and it’s not often you get that in an MM romance.”

Of Autumn Leaves and New Beginnings

Autumn. The perfect time to curl up with a nice cup of tea and a good book and listen to the rain smattering against your window. Or to take a nice walk in the brisk fall air and enjoy the glowing colors of the leaves. It’s the perfect time to start something new and exciting.

Just like my main characters in my upcoming release, Of Autumn Leaves and New Beginnings. Oren and Pete are two genuinely nice guys in their late forties who aren’t interested in games or make-believe. They both want something honest, long-lasting, and real.

Luckily they find each other when Oren’s Mom has an accident and her neighbor Pete helps her…

If you’re in the mood for something uncomplicated, low on drama but high on the feels, and two great guys, pre-order Of Autumn Leaves and New Beginnings now. It’s only six days until release day.
