Works in Progress...
After Midnight – Last year, while watching a Christmas Cinderella story I thought how fun it’d be to do a gay/MM version of the story. it's done and will be out for the holidays! Expect it around Thanksgiving.
Coming Home Series – When I was eighteen I left Tennessee, where I grew up, for good. (Mostly because I was an out gay kid in the early 1990's). Looking back, I’ve missed a lot of things I normally wouldn't have...like getting to know the kids of my classmates, family, and friends from high school. Being with family and friends, although it sometimes drives me nuts, still holds a special place in my heart. So now, thirty some odd years later, I began writing about going home. This series is based in a small town just east of Nashville. It’s everything you’d want in a small town including extremely accepting and loving neighbors, great friends, and beautiful architecture.
Here's a quick synopsis of the series:
For most of us, coming home simply means going back to your place of birth for the holidays. For others, it’s something a bit more – meaningful.
In the upcoming (January 2022) Coming Home Series, Blake Allwood explores what it means for a gay man to come home after years of being away.
Crawford City, located not far from Nashville and in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, is in every way a small rural Tennessee community. Just like all small towns, Crawford City is faced with what it means to exist in an ever-changing world.
These novels focus on the lives of six people who have either grown up in or around this small town and left or have discovered this small town and made it their own.
These uplifting love stories show their unique approach to rethinking home and embracing quirky southern ways.
The Coming Home Series uplifts and promotes the idea of family, relationships, and community while demonstrating how beautiful it is when someone finds their way back home.
