GayRomLit Retreat: Geoffrey Knight

Starting from March up until September I will feature authors attending the GayRomLit Retreat in Chicago (October 16-19, 2014: http://gayromlit.com/grl-authors).

Today author is Geoffrey Knight:
From palace-hopping across the Rajasthan Desert to sleeping in train stations in Bulgaria, from spinning prayer-wheels in Kathmandu to exploring the skull-gated graveyards of the indigenous Balinese tribes, Geoffrey Knight has been a traveller ever since he could scrape together enough money to buy a plane ticket. Born in Melbourne but raised and educated in countless cities and towns across Australia, Geoffrey was a nomadic boy who grew into a nomadic gay writer. When he’s not travelling the world, Geoffrey is travelling the world of his imagination—where the adventures, thrills and romance are limitless. His gay novels, novellas and short stories include: The Cross of Sins, The Riddle of the Sands, The Curse of the Dragon God, To Catch a Fox (co-written with Ethan Day), Scott Sapphire and the Emerald Orchid, The Pearl Trilogy, The Boy from Brighton, Nude Surfing, Hotel Pens, Paperboy, Boy Scout, Harm's Way, Drive Shaft, Drive Shaft 2: Between a Rock and a Hard Place, Under the Bridge, The Gentlemen's Parlor: Room of Chains, and the Non-Fiction work Why Straight Women Love Gay Romance edited by Kris Jacen. His work also features in several anthologies including Best Gay Erotica 2013 edited by Richard LaBonte. He currently owns his own advertising and design agency which he runs from his island home on the Great Barrier Reef, and can't wait to buy his next plane ticket—whether it’s real or imaginary.

Geoffrey Knight and Wilde City Press are offering a copy of Be My Valentine, Bobby Bryson to one commenter on this blog. You can comment on LJ or DW if you have an account (I will send a PM to the winner), if you don't have an account, please leave a comment on DW with a contact email.

Be My Valentine, Bobby Bryson by Geoffrey Knight
Publisher: Wilde City Press; Second edition (January 23, 2014)
Amazon Kindle: Be My Valentine, Bobby Bryson

Valentine’s Day has long been a difficult day for widow and single mom Kate Madsen. But this Valentine’s Day is going to be more than just difficult… it’s going to be downright awkward. For Kate’s only child, seven-year-old Mikey, just stunned the small town of Elk’s Ridge by writing a Valentine’s Day card to someone name Bobby Bryson.

While the card sends teachers into a tizz and turns Mikey’s grandfather into a grumpy old man, Kate discovers over the course of one afternoon that she and her young son are about to begin a journey of questions, confrontations and hopefully one day… happiness.

In the meantime, will Mikey and his Mom make it through this Valentine’s Day? Will the innocent intentions of one young boy change the narrow minds of a stubborn, small town? And just who exactly is the object of Mikey’s affections—Bobby Bryson?
