Title: Say It Right
Author: A M Arthur
Publisher: Carina Press
Release Date: 09/12/2016
After his parents kicked him out for being gay, Marc Villegas lived on the streets before getting a second chance. Now he’s giving back by working at a shelter for LGBT teenagers—because helping fight their demons keeps his own at bay. Including his infatuation with the former best friend he’s sure is straight.
Anthony Romano hasn’t seen Marc since Marc left home eight years ago. In his confidant’s absence, Anthony turned to heroin. Now at rock bottom, he has an offer from Marc to help him get clean. Detox is hard and ugly, but not as hard as admitting the truth: he’s in love with Marc. Always has been.
Marc swore he’d never date an addict, but he never dreamed the one in question would be the man he’s always wanted to be with. As the two explore their feelings for each other, Marc faces a difficult choice. Say yes, and it could cost him his sobriety; say no, and it could cost him his heart.
Top 10 Songs to write ‘Say It Right’ to
This is a pretty fitting topic for a discussion about a book who’s own title is a song. “Say It Right” is a track by Nelly Furtado that has deep, personal meaning for Marc and Anthony, the two heroes of my book. They listened to NF frequently as teenagers, and that love of her music has never gone away.
Here are some other songs that were on my playlists while writing this book:
- “Say Something,” A Great Big World
“Wait For You,” Nelly Furtado
“Mona Lisa (When the World Comes Down),” The All-American Rejects
“The Power of Goodbye,” Madonna
“Hips Don’t Lie,” Shakira
“Stay With Me,” Danity Kane
“I’m Not Alright,” Sanctus Real
“Just the Way You Are,” Bruno Mars
“Say It Right,” Nelly Furtado
About the Author
No stranger to the writing world, A.M. Arthur has been creating stories in her head since she was a child and scribbling them down nearly as long. She credits an early fascination with male friendships and “bromance” (and “The Young Riders”) with her later discovery of and subsequent affair with m/m romance stories. When not writing, she can be found in her kitchen, pretending she’s an amateur chef and trying to not poison herself or others with her cuisine experiments.
