Sometimes, dysfunctional friendships are what keeps us afloat and eventually, what make us strong enough to face the change.
Thirst Trap by Zachary Ryan released in November in the Adult, Contemporary, LGBTQ+, Romance genre.
Tragedy comes in all forms, and you never know how you’ll deal with it. Four friends have all dealt with their fair share of struggles. Dillion, an aspiring writer with writers block because of his brothers sudden death, Jesse the emotional stunted drink thanks to his boyfriend’s suicide, Ivan the abused victim just looking for a place to call home, and Leo the stubborn romantic trying to get his friends to open up, while keeping his issues close to his chest.
With these four friends, they avoid all their elephants in the room like a death card agreement between Dillion and Jesse, Ivan completely hoping his abusive lover with change or even Leo focusing on his friends problems instead of his own. Can these four friends learn to embrace and accept their own tragedy or will they be stuck in the past?
Thirst Trap is a humorous coming of age novel dealing with sexuality, tragedy, substance abuse, and the most beautiful insane friendships.
AUTHOR BIO:Zachary Ryan grew up in a black-and-white box in Maryland, before moving to Chicago to start a new life. There, he found that he was accepted for his misfit status–and learned that it’s perfectly normal to spend your twenties feeling lost and confused.
After a disastrous sexual encounter, Ryan stumbled on a group of true friends, or “soul cluster,” that he connected with. Through his writing, he hopes to help other broken souls out there find comfort amid the chaos.
What was the biggest emotional struggle he, as author, had to face writing this book?
I think the biggest emotional struggle is keeping up with being the verb of a writer instead of being the known. I feel like if I’m stuck trying to always make sure that I’m writing something or editing. I hate also the idea that I have too many ideas, and that’s my version of writer’s block. I need to make sure that I get it all down, or I’m going to feel uninspired, and I’ll quite the book. I then wonder if I’ve written my last novel. I have spent my whole life loving being a writer. It’s the only thing that I’ve ever truly been good at, and I don’t ever want to lose that feeling. I feel like that is the biggest identifier for me, and if I stopped, then I don’t know what I would have left. I find myself feeling complete when I finish an incredible chapter, or I tell people about a book I’m working on. I feel like I have this sense of thriving when I’m drowning in all the things that I want to do with my books with promotion. It’s hard for me to think that maybe one day it all could be taken away from me. Yes, it’s not fun when no one buys my book or doesn’t care for it, but I’ve learn to love the novels all on my own. I want to make damn sure that I continue to be a writer because it’s one of the only things in the world that gives me true joy.
