Here's my newest release, In Their Prime. This is a gay romance that covers the lives of two young men who meet and fall in love in graduate school. The story follows them from their early 20s right up to their late 30s. It's not an erotic romance, but it is a romance. I would consider it PG-rated, without any explicit sex scenes at all. I just didn't think this book called for sex scenes. In this case, I think explicit sex scenes would have made the book too long and drawn out. As it stands, it's a 90,000 word full length novel, and I had to cut it down from 150,000 words.
So here's the blurb, and I've posted the cover and the links below. I'll post more links as they go live.
In Their Prime, a 90,000 word gay romance novel, follows the lives and loves of two talented gay men who meet at the storied Iowa Writers' Workshop in their early 20's. They start out as accidental roommates and passionate lovers, and move through the beginning of their lives as haplessly as everyone else. Ethan is the ambitious, aggressive writer whose only goal is to write trashy fiction that he can sell to the masses, while Travis spends his time working on gay literary novels that give him prestige, but little money and fame. And when both men clash, the heartache is almost too much to handle.
Over the course of two decades they both choose different paths, but their bond is never broken. It takes years to realize what they've won and lost, and they finally reach a point where they both have to face reality in ways neither of them expected. As some of their brightest dreams are realized, and some are painfully lost, will they ever find a way to come together? Or will they continue to ignore the only thing that's kept them going all this time?
Hunky Jesus In San Francisco
I hope no one is offended by this. I think it's meant to be taken lightly. But if you are offended, join the crowd. Everyone seems to be getting offended about something these days. So you're not alone. I don't take things like this seriously, and I'm not by any means an atheist. I like to think Jesus has a sense of humor, too. And if he doesn't, we're probably all in a lot of trouble.
With that said...
For the 38th year in a row, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence preached to a crowd of more than a thousand people on Easter Sunday in Golden Gate Park. This year’s celebration included plenty of hotties and holy water, plus sexy male bunnies, colorful Easter ladies, and a not-so-PG exorcism on a Donald Trump doppelgänger.
RuPaul On the Purpose of Drag
Speaking of taking things lightly, it looks as if RuPaul nailed this one. It's about as plain and simple as it can get.
“Drag has always served a purpose. The purpose is to remind people to not take themselves too seriously. We mock identity. A lot of people get angry… Identity is not to be taken seriously. We show people we’re shape shifters. We are God in drag. That’s our role — is to remind people of that.”
Again, pay attention to this, because if you're taking yourself too seriously you might want to rethink that for your own sake.
