Contract Signed for Sequel to What's in a Name? Yea!

What Fredi would wear:

I signed a contract with Dreamspinner Press for the sequel to What's in a Name?  The novella, Redesigning Max, follows Fredi Zimmer, the flamboyant architect and interior designer friend of Jimmy Patterson in What's in a Name?, as Fredi redesigns a mountain cabin for outdoorsman Max Greene.

Here's the short synopsis I wrote about it:

Renowned interior designer Fredi Zimmer is surprised when outdoorsman Max Greene, owner of Greene's Hunting and Fishing, hires him to remodel his rustic cabin in the Sierra Nevada foothills.  Fredi is an out and proud Metro male whose contact with the outdoors is from his car to the doorway of the million-dollar homes' he remodels, and Max is just too hunky gorgeous for words.

When Max starts coming on to Fredi, the designer can't imagine why.  But he's game to put a little spice into Max's life, even if it's just in the colors and fixtures he'll use to turn Max's dilapidated rustic cabin into a showplace.  Who can blame a guy for adding a little sensual pleasure as he retools Max's life visually?

Max, for his part, is grateful when Fredi takes him in hand, both metaphorically and literally.  Coming out, he finds, is the most exciting and wonderful time of his life, despite the conservative former friends who want to stop his slide into hell.
