Blurb:

Jake and Aiden have been best friends—and nothing more—since the age of six.  Now 22-year-old college graduates, they take a road trip around the USA, visiting every state in 100 days.

As they start their cross-country odyssey, Jake and Aiden think they have their journey and their futures mapped out. But the road has a funny way of changing course.

Fifty states. Two boys. One love story.

Categories: Contemporary, Fiction, Gay Fiction, M/M Romance, New Adult, Romance

Excerpt:

Because anything really could happen, couldn’t it? What if what happened in Philadelphia wasn’t a total mistake, but simply the prelude to Jake finally listening to what his instincts have been telling him for weeks? What if, what if, what if…

“What are you doing? Come see this!” Aiden calls out.

Jake takes a deep breath and steps out of the shadows. Aiden is silhouetted against the fading sun, the light picking out the auburn in his hair, and as he stretches his arms up over his head, one finger hooked through the woven bracelet he bought earlier, he grins out at the horizon. Jake feels as if he’s watching Aiden through brand new eyes; he knows that there is rescue in those arms. Suddenly he wants to fall into them and hold on until he feels safe.

Aiden turns away from the vista, pushes his sunglasses up on top of his head and looks down at Jake, his eyes sparkling with warmth and light. He leans forward and holds out his hand, and he looks… beautiful.

INTERVIEW WITH MIMSY HALE

What show from your childhood would you love to bring back?

I was just talking to my roommate about this, because my favourite childhood show—a game show called Catchphrase—actually came back a couple of years ago! Other than that, I’d definitely have to bring back Sabrina the Teenage Witch. It was delightfully cheesy and schmoopy, with just enough magic to evoke that childlike sense of wonder, and I’d still watch it every single week.

If someone gave you a plane ticket to anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Right at this very moment in time, I want to go somewhere radically different to anywhere I’ve ever been before. I’ve been creatively dormant for a while, and now that I’m starting to come out of hibernation, I feel like I have all this energy available to drink in brand new life experiences, so I’m going to go with Japan. I’ve always wanted to visit because of the centuries of history and culture, and I’d happily get lost there.

Which of the four seasons suits your personality?

While I’ve been working on the extroverted aspects of my personality for the past year or so, I can still tend to be very quiet and introspective, so I’m going to say winter. I love nothing more than putting on my thickest cardigan and socks and curling up with a good book and a hot drink.

Describe your favorite reading space?

It’s warm in the winter and cool in the summer. During the day, I never want to be there, and at night, it’s the only place I want to be. It’s comfortable and inviting, and if it could talk—well, lately, it’d probably say, “Give me a break!” It can either be piled high or barely covered. Yep, you guessed it—my bed!

How did you come up with the title of your book?

Beyond the very skeleton of a concept, the title is actually the very first thing I thought of. I knew that I wanted to write a road trip covering all fifty US states, and I knew that doing it in fifty days would be near impossible. Seventy-five days, maybe—but that didn’t have a ring to it. I settled on one hundred days because it sounded good, and it gave me the framework for Jake and Aiden’s connection to one another—and a time limit. I’ve always been fascinated by exploring ‘snapshot’ periods in my characters’ lives, and as soon as I thought of this particular time limit, it just seemed to stick.
