Blog Tour: Sight Unseen by Susan Mac Nicol


A Collaborative project with L.A. producer and Hollywood Actor Nicholas Downs & International Bestselling Author Susan Mac Nicol
welcome-to-the-blog-tour-for-sight-unseen Based on an idea from L.A. producer and actor, Nicholas Downs, Susan and Nicholas have developed a story straight from the heart. In a gripping tale of lovers fighting against the odds comes a story of universal appeal about rejection and acceptance and finally finding what is real and true.


How did this book come to be? 

 Nicholas and Susan got to know each other when she interviewed him for Divine Magazine They kept in touch and Susan was thrilled when she learnt he was reading her books. In February this year, Nicholas messaged Susan and asked her to read a script he’d written. 

It sounded like something she’d love so of course she did. Things evolved to the point where they decided to collaborate to write a full story based on the film script, and then develop a screen play together with a view to getting it to screen. Susan’s part in this project is to write the book, get it out there, and then help write the screen play. 

Nicholas, with his LA and Hollywood connections is the go to guy to see if they can get this book made into film. It’s an exciting, heady venture that the pair have embarked on, and they are thrilled that you might choose to share the journey with them.


Sometimes we don’t see love coming ♡

Release Date: January 26, 2017

Categories: M/M Romance 

sight-unseen-coverTragedy brings together a reserved but brilliant sculptor and an outgoing gallery owner, friends whose love was sidetracked but was always meant to be deeper.


SoCal natives, Nate and Cody have been friends since childhood. Both knew they were different—and the same. At seventeen, a stolen weekend in the Florida Keys drove their connection deeper and hotter than either could imagine. They were meant to be together. Then, for reasons only Nate knows, suddenly they weren’t.

They’re still friends. Best friends. But they’ve moved on and found other partners. The yearning remains, however, despite the long-ago secret that drove them apart, when tragedy strikes, both men find themselves in the dark. They must grope their way back to who and what they are…which they will find in each other’s arms. Sometimes, losing one’s sight can open one’s eyes—and heart.

Cody POV
I placed a hand on Nate’s knee, and leaned in and kissed his forehead. “So how are you really doing?”

He smelt like Nate—vanilla, mint and spice—but his beautiful brown eyes were distant with charcoal smudges underneath like dark sad smiles, and he’d lost weight. He was still my Nate though.

Connect with Susan & Nicholas

Susan Mac Nicol is a self-confessed bookaholic, an avid watcher of videos of sexy pole dancing men, self-confessed geek and nerd and in love with her Smartphone. This little treasure is called ‘the boyfriend’ by her long suffering husband, who says if it vibrated, there’d be no need for him. Susan hasn’t had the heart to tell him there’s an app for that…

She is never happier than when sitting in the confines of her living room/study/on a cold station platform scribbling down words and making two men fall in love. She is a romantic at heart and believes that everything happens (for the most part) for a reason. She likes to think of herself as a ‘half full’ kinda gal, although sometimes that philosophy is sorely tested.

In an ideal world, Susan Mac Nicol would be Queen of England and banish all the bad people to the Never-Never Lands of Wherever -Who Cares. As that’s never going to happen, she contents herself with writing her HEA stories and pretending, that just for a little while, good things happen to good people.

Sue is also a PAN member of the Romance Writers of America and a member of their Rainbow chapter as well as a member of the Romantic Novelists Association in the UK.
