Currently in proofing stage and cover design – below is the back blurb and the first draft of the cover – this will be ammended, but I think the top half is fine.
Here’s the blurb:
The Mentor of Lonemarsh House
“I love you enough to let you run, but too much to see you fall.”
Burnt out from his life as a musician and record producer, 35-year-old Matt Barrow takes on Lonemarsh House, an isolated manor in the Kent marshes. When he meets 23-year-old Jason Hodge, a brilliant violinist, Matt knows this is the young man he wants to share his new life with. But Jason is closeted and at the mercy of his treacherous friends.
Jason is trapped by fear and Matt may be his escape, but should he jeopardise his safety for the love of an older man?
The Mentor of Lonemarsh House is the third in Jackson Marsh’s ‘Mentor’ collection of older/younger gay romance novels.
This is just to update you… I am nearly through draft one of the next novel in ‘The Mentor’ series. This isn’t an on-going series, but a set of novels that are older/younger romance – what some call May to December romance. In this story, the older character, Matt Barrow, is 35, rich, successful but lacking love, and the younger, Jason Hodge, is 23, closeted and scared. As usual, in my Mentor books, it’s all about characters guiding and helping each other to fulfilment.
I have gone back to my roots and a favourite location for this story; a large and empty, rural marsh towards the south coast of England. You may have noticed that the Mentor books are set in remote locations. ‘Wildhill Farm’ is somewhere in the east of the country, where the hills meet the flatlands and miles from the nearest village. ‘Barrenmoor Ridge’ (fast becoming a best seller and racing to the top 130 at Amazon MM Romance) is set on a Yorkshire fell. Lonemarsh house is set on a marsh in summer, and although the house is not too far from a village, it’s still a quiet and romantic location.
There will be more about the story as we approach publication – hopefully in March, and there will be a preview of the cover here as soon as my wonderful designer has created it. She’s currently working on a cover for another of my books, so I’m not hassling her. Anyway, I still have to finish draft one of ‘Lonemarsh’, and then do draft two, edit it, and have it proofed, lay it out and publish it. Meanwhile, you can always catch my other titles at my Amazon author page: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Jackson-Marsh/e/B077LDT5ZL/

Here’s the cover and back blurb to get you started. Happy New Year!
It takes a brave man to climb a mountain, but it takes a braver lad to show him the way.
Following the death of his lover, mountaineer John Hamilton lives an isolated existence high on wild Fellborough peak. When he rescues 19-year-old Gary Taylor from the mountain, John can’t accept that the boy may be the answer to his heartache. Gary is seventeen years his junior, confused, and being pursued by criminals. As Gary helps John through his grief, so the older man mentors the lad through his coming out. Both paths lead to the same destination, but are they walking them together?
