[sticky post]Original Fiction
mattmetzger
In a bid to be more organised, I've separated my original and fan-works into separate masterlists.

Here is, unsurprisingly, the former. For visibility purposes, I'm not cutting this ;)

Full-Length

Our Last Summer

Southern summers are dull, and Ryan will take any company to alleviate the boredom. But Alex is not just a destructive kid, and Ryan finds himself dragged into a murky world of drink, bruises, and many kinds of madness. In learning Alex, Ryan learns himself - but what happens when summer ends?

Out now!

mattmetzger
Title: The Threesome

Rating: PG13
Warnings: none
Notes: in celebration of my novel being published today, I emerge from my mapping coursework to bring ficlet! Reading both would make my week ;) Second attempt at posting, as apparently my laptop has decided it doesn't like me.

Novel: Our Last Summer
mattmetzger
It's here!
ourlastsummer

My first novel, Our Last Summer, is now available in ebook format from JMS Books/Queerteen Press. The print version will also arrive by the end of the month. The ebook version can be ordered here, right now, and you should obviously do so!

****

"Spending every summer with his grandmother in the south of England isn't Ryan's idea of a good time, and when he finds someone his own age to hang out with, he doesn't much care who that is. Alex might not say much, but company is company when there's nobody else to choose from, and Ryan will simply have to make do. It isn't, after all, like he really needs a friend.

But Alex is more than just a kid with a thing for smashing up greenhouses, and Ryan finds himself dragged further and further into a dark, uncertain world of alcohol, bruises, a mother's madness, and a father's anger. Worst of all, Alex is dragging Ryan into a world of lust, attraction, and midnight kisses that Ryan is struggling to keep confined to southern summers. This thing with Alex can't go further than summer -- but Alex, and the shadows that surround him, are not so easily forgotten.

Ryan can't forget Alex, but the longer he hangs on, the more he discovers ... not just about Alex, but about himself, his future, and the things that really matter.

But eventually, summer must come to an end."
