Twelfth Moon by Halli Starling
Available in ebook and paperback!
50% of proceeds will be donated to THE OZONE HOUSE
Elsie’s a small town with a lot of heart.
Isn’t that how most small town romance stories begin?
But this isn’t any love story – it’s several stories of love, romance, and sex. The stories cross paths and connections, age, gender, sexuality, and different kinds of relationships. Stories like that of Harriet, the owner of Twelfth Moon perfumery and adopted mother to her nephew, Nu. Harriet always figured she’d be single for the rest of her life, but Dela Atwater appearing in her shop one blustery autumn day sparks something within her. A bit of romance and longing she’d long thought buried.
With stories like this and many more, Twelfth Moon is about hope and joy and queer love in so many shapes and forms, from the author of the dark fantasy/romance novel Wilderwood (“…will shatter readers’ expectations with its bewitching complexities…” – The BookLife Prize).
