Especially happy to see this book among finalists of the 30th Lammys!

30th Annual Lambda Literary Award Finalist - Gay Romance

The original review:

I don't think that Tom Mendicino planned KC, at Bat to become a trilogy. I remember that I was absolutely thrilled and overjoyed when I found out that his next book Travelin' Man was a sequel to it. And I can't even explain you my excitement when Lonesome Town was released. It wasLammys!

I've read this in three parts when they were published as short novellas. My rating reflects my feelings about the story as a whole.

KC at Bat
Travellin' Man
Lonesome Town

“After David finished talking with Saul, Jonathan became one in spirit with David, and he loved him as himself.” (I Samuel: 18:1)

This is wonderfully written, this trilogy of novellas published originally in 2013 and 2015. Tom Mendicino writes with elegance and care, focusing on important details, choosing dialogue so thoughtfully that no words ar

I finished this novel over the holidays; took this long to write a review; here's why....the pages within stuck with me long after i finished the last page, moved me so deeply that I wanted to give it a little time before posting a few paltry words that cannot possibly describe such an emotional novel, but suffice to say, I freakin' LOVED it.

The three novellas collected in novel-length are well written, offering both raw beauty, and timeless endearment. The dialogue--though at times kitsy and lame (bu

I don't think I'm the target audience for this book. Others may enjoy it more. I didn’t like the writing style ... it felt like I was skimming along the surface, and I didn't develop any feelings for the story or characters.
Got it so I could read the last two books. Charlie is still such a cad and I don't really see any glimpse of hope that he will change. I'm choosing to believe otherwise, though, because KC deserves a happy ending.
