A New Dream
A New Dream actually came from Baty's love of the mountains. "They have always been a great inspiration for me. The peace and quiet refreshes me and renews my strength. It just seemed natural that my very first published work would take place in a mountainous area." Baty reflects.

In this tale a split-second of time and Walt’s dreams of Olympic gold were crushed along with his right leg when he was involved in a serious accident on the ski-fields during the preliminary trials. Now he’s teaching beginners on the ski slopes of Crystal Falls Lodge, run by his family in West Virginia, and wondering if he’ll ever crawl out of the pit that his life has become. Eventually, the look of devastation on his sister’s face at how much he’s let himself go, prompts him to try harder to experience life again. First on the list: a trip to town and a haircut.

Curt Woodridge is used to traveling light. Ever since he was kicked out of home at eighteen, when his family found out he was gay, he’s been moving from one town to the next, performing in small bars and ski lodges to make his living. He is one of the lucky ones; he was saved from having to live on the streets by his agent and is genuinely happy with the way his life is going. After performing a great set at his latest gig, Curt decides to head into town and look around. He has seven days to kill before he’ll be moving on to the next gig.

Neither man is ready for love, and definitely not on the streets of Flat Rock. But when neither of them is looking, quite literally, they fall hard. But how does a man who thought he’d lost everything dare to dream of a life with someone who is leaving town for good in less than a week?

Not to give the ending away, but, Baty is a sucker for good endings; "my favorite part of writing is bringing the characters through to the happily ever after I wanted for them from the very first time I thought of them and their story."

Wonderful Times in the Mountains

Our family enjoyed a relaxing and rejuvenating vacation in the Great Smokey Mountains before the return of fall and school. We stayed just minutes from the park and enjoyed the quieter side of the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area in Townsend, Tennessee. It was a great time of swimming, exploring, playing putt putt and just slowing down.

Now that school is back in for my daughter, Caitlyn and my son, Joseph, things are busier and in a constant moving pattern. It also means I have settled back into my writing. Hopefully, I will soon have information on Drifting Sands for you all. The story has been submitted and I am waiting to hear from the lovely ladies at Bottom Drawer Publishing. I have also began the concluding story to Drifting Sands, tentatively called Crashing Waves.

 Look for information here in a few days about a great opportunity to purchase some wonderful books for just $.99 and enter contest for a chance to win a new Nook or Kindle.

Thank you all for staying close and reading.
