Diary of a Gay Nerd by Michel McDonald

I’ve had a hard time putting into words how I felt when I read Michel’s memoir.  Many parts struck a chord in me from my own childhood, though I was far luckier than Michel was and I didn’t have the added alienation of being gay.  I’ve known Michel for several years now, ever since he picked up my vampire trilogy and we started talking.  In that time, I’ve found him to be a very kind, passionate and determined man.  After reading his memoir I have to add brave to that as well and not just for what he endured and overcame.  To be able to write something like this, with such unflinching honesty, takes a rare kind of person.  Michel doesn’t gloss over his own mistakes, but puts them out there just as baldly as the abuse he went through.

I am honored to know such a man and call him my friend.

All Bets Are Off Reviews and Book Trailer

Good morning everyone.  Brrr.  The weather in DC cannot make up its mind.  I think that its really trying hard to be spring and failing.  I wanted to share some wonderful reviews that I’ve received for All Bets Are Off in the last two months since it came out.  Eli and Ash’s story was a hard one for me to write since contemporary m/m is way out of my comfort zone unless I’m writing it with Fae, but I’m really happy that I stuck with it.

Plus I wanted to share with you some pictures I had that reminded me of either the characters or setting as I was writing the story.  Plus there’s a book trailer that the wonderful and talented Voirey Linger made for me at the end.  I hope you enjoy.
