Getting Even in Fiction...A Nasty New Hope Queen

I rarely link to music on this blog. But a publisher sent this to me last week, as a joke, and I can't stop listening to it. I'm posting the link twice, just so no one misses it

And I'm not even looking at it from a political POV. I love it because there is this nasty, vicious queen I know right here in New Hope that I'd like to send it to. And there's nothing worse than a nasty New Hope queen, trust me. He's one of those awful gay men who make all other gay men look bad. He's a back-stabber and liar, and every negative cliche that was ever invented about gay men. He's been setting me up for years, and I never see it coming.

But I'm much too polite to actually send the song link to him. And blogging is supposed to be about fun and personal things sometimes, so I'm posting about it here.

I wrote about this nasty queen in THE GHOST AND MR. MOORE, and I rarely ever base characters on people I know. And I never get even with anyone in fiction, but this was cathartic for me. He's the jerk-character in the story who is trying to ruin the traditional town event and take money away from an important fundraiser to boost his own ego.

And frankly, I don't think there is a gay man alive who doesn't know a nasty, self-loathing queen like this. So if you haven't heard this song yet, I hope you have as much fun as I've had listening to it.

Here's the link to the song again:
