If you have followed my blog for any amount of time, I want to say, "Thank you." Because you have a lot to do with the fact that this is happening now.
Come To My Brother is not an evolution of my work here, but a prequel. I wrote the first draft while still in college.
Like most young work, it has its flaws. My hope is that it contains something else too. Perhaps the stuff that's difficult to capture later in life.
Johnny Murdoc - my new friend and publisher from Queer Young Cowboys - has done a tremendous job at bringing my twenty-year-old voice to (some) maturity. Often by hacking it down to size. He's also designed a beautiful artifact.
The cover photos require more thanks and collaboration. Kimberly Kane (photographer) and Wolf Hudson (model) came together - years back - to help me shoot some promo material for this project. I think it was one of the first times I met Hudson. As you'll soon find out - if you flip a copy over - he had no issue with making a mess of me.
I hope you'll join me on September 10th in celebration of Come To My Brother's release. If you happen to live in Southern California, it would be a pleasure to meet you at The West Hollywood Book Fair - September 29th.
Please stop by again. I'll be releasing more info soon!
