About Eli Summers

Eli Summers was born and raised in Saskatoon, Canada. A small city in the middle of the Saskatchewan prairies, it is said you can watch your dog run away for two days straight. The city and the surrounding area make the perfect backdrop for most of Eli's novels. Although he plans on moving to somewhere with a little more mountain, like Kelowna or Banff, he's content to sit in his apartment, drinking coffee and dreaming about what his characters will get up to next. Sometimes he even drives out to the middle of nowhere, lie on the top of his car and watch the stars.

Eli has a knack for turning the copious amounts of caffeine (that no normal human should consume) into #ownvoices novels about boys that love other boys. Sometimes this includes a happy ever after, sometimes it involves tears, and sometimes the characters take the story in a direction even Eli didn't realize would happen.. He adds a generous heaping cup of fluff, love and angst in everything he touches, most of the time on purpose but sometimes his characters make him do it. He wrote his debut novel, The Winter Experience in 2014 and followed up with the sequel The Summer Experience in 2015. He took a hiatus of about three years because his imaginary friends wouldn't talk to him but now he has a new novel, The Art of Falling In Love coming out on August 28, 2018. He is also working on a much different kind of novel that involves the Devil, five chosen warriors and a whole lot of evil. The first episode is expected to come out on January 5, 2019.

When he's not toiling away with word counts and a thesaurus, you can probably find Eli playing video games (Saints Row 2 and Witcher 3 among his favourites), daydreaming about the mountains or cuddling with his House Panther, Salem. He dreams of one day opening a publishing press that serves the LGBT+ community with a place to get their books out to the world.

Some stories will take you on a journey, sometimes an unexpected ride. Those stories will make you feel and live this journey. I think this is one of those stories.
You get so many feels - nostalgia, joy, happiness, sadness, hope and more- from this story, there are so many beautiful moments. You'll live this story with the characters. You'll be laughing, crying and hoping with them. You'll love them.
Mattie & Morgan's love story is one of those stories one will always keep in their heart. A romantic tale, one that is going to make you fall in love with them and their journey.

I highly recommend this book.

Having read this more than three times, from the first draft on Wattpad and through the editing process, I still love Mattie and Morgan's journey. They are both incredibly strong, memorable, and lovable characters. Even after my first time reading through (while waiting impatiently for updates) I felt as if I knew Mattie personally - his happiness was mine as was his sadness.

Eli plays with your heart from beginning to end. You'll squeal, laugh, cry, and everything in between.

The reason why I am giving it five stars is simple. In my eyes it ranks as one of the greatest books I will ever have the pleasure of reading. The characters come alive and they make you both laugh and cry. I rarely ever cry while reading at this one made me cry.
It is a beautiful love story. I don't think anyone else could have told Mattie and Morgan's story better.

This book will make you smile. It will make you laugh out loud and it will make you cry.
The story is told through the eyes of Mattie Hawkins (the main character). He tells his story and remembers scenes from his life and love with Morgan Winters, who captured everything on camera.

Eli Summers is a very talent young writer who wrote real page turner. The moment I started reading, I couldn't put it away anymore. Every character in this book is written with love and Mattie and Morgan are an incredibly sweet couple.
I am eager to read more from this series soon.
