New Release; Bruno Gmunder Verlag Anthology
I have a short story out in a new anthology recently released by German Publisher, Bruno Gmunder Verlag. I just received the author copy in the mail today and the book looks great. It's always nice to hold that physical book in your hand no matter how much you love digital books. This anthology was put together and edited by Winston Giesecke, whom I've posted about before, here.
The title of the book is Daddy Knows Best: Gay Erotic Stories, and this is always something that brings me back to my roots as a writer...pre-internet days when publishing, especially gay publishing, was a very different place. I haven't been in an anthology like this for a while for lack of time, however, it's where I feel the most secure as a writer because I know where I am as a gay writer, for lack of a better way to phrase that.
What is it about older men that gay boys find so irresistible? Some say young men in search of a "daddy" to partner up with - sometimes for life, sometimes just for the night - are looking for someone to mentor them. Take care of them. But there are plenty of young studs with dirty minds who simply find that men get better with age. Older men are hotter. More confident. More experienced. For some, it's all about dominance and submission. For others, it's about getting off with a guy who turns you on. These are the couplings explored in Daddy Knows Best, a sizzling collection of erotic stories - some romantic, some raunchy - that probe the younger man-older man dynamic in sensual, graphic detail. About the Editor: Beginning his career as a television writer, Winston Gieseke penned episodes for shows like Wildfire and Hollywood Off-Ramp. He has composed tantalizing copy for various adult entertainment companies and served as editor in chief of both Men and Freshmen magazines before honing his journalistic skills as managing editor of The Advocate.
