And now we have two new collaborations in the works. I narrate my fair share of MM romance and what I’ve appreciated about Felice’s work is how she draws nuanced and flawed characters. There’s always a bigger challenge at play besides getting into bed – children, mental illness, dogs that need to be rescued, dealing with families and friends who haven’t quite come around to acceptance.
Of course Felice does pretty well once her characters get into the bedroom as well. Or the hallway. Or the stairwell. Or the taxi. Or the nightclub. I really, really want a sex life as exciting as what her men get up to!
When you sign up for my newsletter you can expect to receive a mix of interviews with authors, filmmakers and actors I work with as well as exclusive photos and video from some of my upcoming work.
I’ve shared a little about Felice Stevens and her new book The Arrangement below. She’s even offering the first chapter of the audiobook as a free download when you sign up for her newsletter and select ‘Charlie David’ from the drop down menu of how you found her – so make sure to do that. Then I can do what I love to do – tell you a story!
Felice Stevens has always been a romantic at heart. She believes that while life is tough, there is always a happy ending around the corner, her characters have to work for it, however. Like life in NYC, nothing comes easy and that includes love, but getting there is oh so fun and oh so sexy.
Felice lives in New York City with her husband and two children. Her day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass (or two of red wine). She practices law but daydreams of a time when she can sit by a beach somewhere and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there are bound to be a few bumps along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.
Sign up for Felice’s newsletter and pick Charlie David’s newsletter from the drop down menu in answer to “How Did You Find Me.” and you will receive a download link for the first chapter of the audiobook of The Arrangement.
Reviewers have called The Arrangement, A sexy, heartfelt and romantic story and a moving MM story with a lot of heart and some angst.
The Arrangement is a 2016 Rainbow Awards top ten finalist and received an Honorable Mention. It has a 4.7 out of 5 star rating on Amazon and over five hundred 4 and 5 star reviews on Goodreads.
CHARLIE DAVID’S CORNER
When asked what my job is, my face generally scrunches up as I try to figure out the best way to describe what it is I do. I write, produce, and direct. Sometimes books, sometimes documentaries, television or films. I think the best description hasn’t changed much from what I wanted to be as a kid – a storyteller.
I follow my curiosity in my creativity and it takes me to some pretty awesome places. Right now I’m directing a documentary miniseries on open relationships and polyamory. Up next is a scripted miniseries titled Shadowlands that is based on a book of short stories in the psychological thriller/paranormal world.
This week I’d like to share the first episode of a series titled Coming Out that was filmed in Montreal, one of the cities I call home. As you likely know, Montreal is a city woven of many cultures and languages including Greek, Yiddish, Arabic, Russian, and English but the most commonly used is French. I invite you to watch the first episode of our series which spans two seasons. Don’t worry if you don’t speak French – I’ve included English subtitles!
COMING OUT is a twenty-four episode series following the explosive lives, loves and losses of an intermingled group of Montréalers as they confront the subject of difference. Managing a modern relationship can be a mess.
Single? Attached? Married? Divorced? Open? Closed? The most common answer is ‘It’s complicated.’
Get ready to come out with these characters as they negotiate acceptance, prejudice and just how much they’re willing to risk in the pursuit of love and happiness.
