I don't get google alerts. I just don't like them. They cram up my in-box and annoy me.
But the downside of not getting google alerts is when I miss something nice and I miss a chance to say thank you. So here's why I'm writing this post:
Who: The Bathhouse Blog.
What: They mentioned one of my books, HOT ITALIAN LOVER, in this post.
When: On October 28, 2011, and I'm embarrassed to admit I just saw it last night while checking blog stats. (I don't check them very often either.)
Why: Because I want to thank them for being so nice. They didn't have to do this!!
Where: You can check out the home page of The Bathhouse Blog, here.
For those who don't know, I wrote a bathhouse scene in HOT ITALIAN LOVER that I thought was authentic. At least I based most of the scene on my own personal experiences as an openly gay man. And though I'm not an expert on bathhouses to any degree, I do know they've been a huge part of gay male culture for more years than I can count offhand.
If you're interested in what real gay culture is like, check them out. I can't promise you much, but you won't see any Snoopy Happy Dances over there (smile).
