An Out in Portland Novel
Karelia Stetz-Waters
Releasing July 5th, 2016
Forever Yours

For Kristen Brock, Tristess County,

Oregon, is just a stepping stone. She doesn’t fit in to the small town

community, but that doesn’t bother her; she’s not here to make friends. A few

years as district attorney will look good on her resume, and then she’ll be

able to get any job she wants in a big city law firm. But then she meets

Marydale Rae, who inspires feelings Kristen never imagined . . .

Marydale didn’t intend to hide her

past from Kristen, but the prospect of a friend who doesn’t know she spent time

in prison is too tempting to pass up. Add in the kiss they shared, and Marydale

never wants Kristen to know the truth. But in a town like Tristess, secrets are

impossible to keep. Being together puts both Kristen’s job and Marydale’s

parole in jeopardy. But is a chance at forever worth the risk?

My wife

recently dubbed my writing “so-ro,” short for romance with a social conscience.

I guess that’s what I do. Whether I’m exploring the problems of gentrification

or the evils of human trafficking, every book I write has a lesbian romance at

its heart and a social issue in mind. They’re the kind of books that read like

fun, lazy-Saturday page-turners and yet leave your unexpectedly enlightened.

That’s two for the price of one and way more fun that keeping up with the news.

When I’m

not writing, I’m being inspired by my amazing community college students and

hanging out with my lovely wife and my charming spuglette (that’s a technical

term for spaniel-pug mix). I’m a fan of snakes, corn mazes, popular science

books on neurology, and any roadside attraction that purports to have the

world’s largest ball of twine.
