    Summary

    Neuro-atypical uni student Baz Pitch has never had a boyfriend, or a first date. He’s never even been kissed. Up until now, he’s been too busy being…well. Neuro-atypical.

    He spends his days at uni and his nights working at the bookshop owned by his eccentric aunt’s on-again off-again boyfriend. He’s not doing it for the money—all he needs is something to get him out of the house. But he never expected a simple bookselling job to turn his entire world upside-down.

    Enter Simon Salisbury. He’s not sure where his life’s headed. He’s taken a gap year, and his girlfriend’s gone off to college in California and broken up with him. When his best friend Penelope takes him to the bookshop near her school for a coffee and a scone, he thinks all he’s getting is advice and commiseration. But then there's Baz.

    Simon’s determined to get to know the bloke at the bookshop, but Baz has spent a lifetime trapped inside his own mind. He knows that letting Simon get to know him means exposing the most vulnerable bits of himself. But love is vulnerable in itself, and sometimes trusting someone with our hearts is a risk worth taking.

    updating infrequently while I'm pregnant but hoping to have a new chapter out soon!

    Summary

    Baz Pitch loves, in no particular order; David Bowie, punk music, the feel of old vinyl, the smell of coffee (but not the taste), classic books, magic, David Byrne, the fact that he was raised by his aunt Fiona, and maybe, sometimes, Simon Snow.

    Summary

    Sword of Mages Tattoo caters to a niche clientele. No walk-ins, no flash, and absolutely no mentions of Basilton Pitch.

    Until, that is, he's suddenly back from the continent, standing in their shop, and in need of a space to work.

    Will Simon be able to set aside his grudge from art school and act like a professional adult? Probably not.
    Will Baz be able to stop grinding his teeth in frustration whenever Simon's shirt hitches up while he's working? Definitely not.
    Will Penny and Shepard figure things out before these two morons? Oh, absolutely.
