Look at this gorgeous cover!!!
I've had this for a week but only had the time to post it today, now that I'm back from my trip to Japan. That was awesome and I'll talk about it later, but for now, Traductores Anónimos has graciously done a fantastic new Spanish translation of my story Different Spheres, which was published with Dreamspinner back in 2011. The original blurb is this:
Gil Donaldson returned to his hometown of Boulder, Colorado, after a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis cut short his teaching career and his love life on the East Coast. Waking one morning to find that his vision has gone blurry, which makes driving himself to the hospital out of the question, Gil solicits the help of his slightly-reclusive neighbor, Warren Masters, to take him to the ER.
The two men become friends over the course of Gil’s recovery from his latest relapse, and while Gil recognizes he’s attracted to the other man, he refuses to act on it. Gil doesn’t like relying on anyone else to ensure his emotional or physical health, and he’s grown used to being alone, or at least that’s what he tells himself. Warren is a man of few words, but he’s there whenever Gil needs him, and he has only one request for them to be together.
Sound good? Try it in Spanish!
Gil Donaldson volvió a su ciudad natal en Boulder, Colorado, después de que un diagnóstico de esclerosis múltiple interrumpiera su carrera docente y su vida amorosa en
Los dos hombres se hacen amigos en el transcurso de la recuperación de Gil de su última recaída, y aunque Gil reconoce que se siente atraído hacia el otro hombre, se niega a actuar en consecuencia. No le gusta depender de nadie para garantizar su salud emocional o física, y está acostumbrado a estar solo, o al menos eso es lo que se dice a sí mismo. Warren es un hombre de pocas palabras, pero está ahí siempre que Gil le necesita, y solo pide una oportunidad para poder estar juntos.
You can find the Spanish translation of this story in my page links on the right side of the blog, under Diferentes Esferas, or here at AO3, where it's also downloadable: Diferentes Esferas.
