I'll pull into a gas station and write out notes for an idea that I have that I think would make a great story almost seeing like a movie in my head. Currently in my phone I have about 20 different ideas for books, so the difficulty come in figuring out which book I'm going to write next! (less)

~Cyanide Latte~ Thank you so much for adding me, Peter! I'm not always very talkative in YouTube comments but you're one of my top favorite BookTubers of all time! When you mentioned in your recent video about becoming more active here on GoodReads and accepting friend requests, I thought I had nothing to lose and everything to gain by asking you for a friend request to find better ways to connect with you about books! Thank you so much, because my work week has been stressful, and seeing you accept my friend request has just made my entire week better already! Looking forward to seeing more of your reviews and talking with you about books!

Rob Rosen Peter, hi. Hope all is well. Since we’re Goodreads friends, I thought I’d share my latest novel, Midlife Crisis, with you.

"Rob Rosen does madcap gay humor better than anyone else writing today. Midlife Crisis is no exception." - Neil Plakcy, author of The Mahu Investigations

I hope you can pick up a copy. As a special thanks for your time, feel free to message me on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/therobrosen) for a free PDF copy of any of my other 9 novels, which you can find here: http://www.therobrosen.com

All the best,

Rob Rosen
