The pre-order campaign for Alec J. Marsh’s novella To Drive the Hundred Miles launches TOMORROW!
Author Alec J. Marsh describes his novel To Drive the Hundred Miles as a Hallmark movie made queer. With a trans male protagonist and an immersive first-person point of view, this novella will draw you in and hold your attention from start to finish. Join Will as he struggles with his family’s acceptance of him, and as he struggles with his own acceptance of the potentially bright future offered to him by the cute barista Bea. Ringing in the season with lows and highs, a whole lot of coffee and pancakes, and a modest dollop of spicy f/m content, you won’t want to miss your chance to get this touching book—soon to be available as a gorgeous trade paperback for the first time ever!
“No one has come in in three hours,” she said. “And you’re right, I have better ways to spend my Christmas than working. Do you have any of that brandy left?”
I checked the inside pocket of my jacket, and the flask was still there. I handed it to her, and she added generous portions to both of the mugs, then handed me one. She took a seat in the other armchair and tucked her feet up under her.
“Well, merry Christmas,” she said.
“Merry Christmas,” I agreed with less bitterness than I expected. This felt like the ideal Christmas, I realized. Sitting in a quiet coffee shop with Bea when no one wanted anything from either of us. She was who I wanted; she made my days feel special.-excerpt from “To Drive the Hundred Miles” by Alec J. Marsh
