The 15th-anniversary edition of my very first book, Love Match, is here!
No, you don’t need to check your eyes. I said 15 years! My very first book was published by Loose Id in 2006. Borat was a box office hit, George Clooney and Angelina Jolie were deemed the sexiest people alive, and a new social media site called Facebook opened registration to the general public.
Aside from my old publisher, those things are still around, so it doesn’t actually seem so long ago. But Instagram and Twitter didn’t even exist, and Netflix was mailing actual DVDs to your house. The times, they have changed! It honestly blows my mind that I’ve been publishing for that long, and it’s wonderful to finally get my first book back on the shelves.
I’d initially planned on revising this story after the rights reverted to me. But I discovered when I sat down to re-read it that I like it just the way it is–dated technology and all! In regards to homophobia in sports and society, there really has been significant progress as well. It was so interesting to see that more has changed than I expected!
Luke and Jesse’s angsty coming-out journey to their HEA was vital in achieving my dream career as a romance author. I still hear from readers who love this book, and I hope you do too!
