The day has come. Today, My Fabulous Disease: Chronicles of a Gay Survivor is officially released.
And, because I am nothing if not transparent, I want you to buy it very, very much.
Niche markets are tough. Major imprints largely take a pass on content devoted to LGBTQ, HIV/AIDS, addiction, and even funny stories about growing up queer. So, this book is a labor of love and conviction despite the odds.
There are book events coming in five cities, for starters (check the events page). My only real goal here is for book sales to cover the costs of my travel to these events. Each of them are designed to feature community members reading excerpts and sharing their own experiences, because this book, and my writing in general, has always been meant as a catalyst for conversation.
That’s it. That’s my post. I hope you buy the book and share it and post photos with it and leave reviews. It would mean a lot to me.
Thanks, my friends, and please be well.
