A few weeks ago, I wrote this essay for Jeff Erno's blog. I liked it so much it was my first choice to recycle while I'm on vacation (smirk). No, really, it means a lot to me, and I hope you will read it, if you haven't already.

Writing a novel is a ridiculous undertaking. I spent two years writing Looking After Joey, the story of a gay porn character who steps out of the TV into the life of a s... Read more of this blog post »
