Coming Spring 2017!


Bill Emory spent his childhood wondering about the nature of love, awkwardly fumbling his way through adolescence in his small Idaho town. Resigning himself to the selfless love of faith, he filled his life with devotion and a sense of belonging at Saint Gertrude’s Seminary, becoming the “Morning Monk.” The introduction of Milton Fournier, a French-Canadian seminary student, blurs Bill’s lines between selfless love, affection, and duty.

From the author of The House of Wolves and the Do-It-Yourself Guide to Getting Over Yourself comes a new gay romance looking at the multiple expressions of love. “Milton and the Morning Monk” is a story about romance, self-discovery, and the obstacles that stand in the way of us reconciling who we truly are and finding happiness.

So many beautiful friends helped bring this work to life
