Someone sent me the photo I’ve posted here this morning. I decided to put it up because I think it’s interesting. The young man’s handsome, of course. He has great lips and I like the expression on his face. What do you think? Do you like it?
This blog’s had heavy traffic the past few days, and it looks lke we’re headed for another busy day today. I can never figure out why some days are so much more active than others. Is it the photos I post or the terribly interesting remarks I post about my exciting life as a fiction writer? Who knows? Right now, I guess people have more time on their hands, due to the holiday. So they have more time to surf the Internet.
I received a nice comment from Connor, a gay surfer from Oceanside, California, who wrote me about my novel, Maui. He said, “I don’t normally read for pleasure. I have enough to read for my college classes. But I heard about your book from a friend and I bought a copy. It’s a cool story, very sexy. I’ve never read a story about a gay surfer before. Also, I’ve heard a lot about Maui, but I have never been there. After reading your book I definitely want to go there. It sounds like a beautiful place.”
Thanks for writing, Connor.
Maui was published by Torquere Press in November 2009. It’s sold quite well and I frequently receive comments from readers about the book. Here’s the blurb:
When Ishmael Fanning, a Florida surfer and grade school teacher, gets dumped by his partner of seven years, he relocates to the Hawaiian island of Maui. There he quickly finds himself involved with two younger men, Corey, a competition surfer, and Spencer, who works in a skateboard shop.
Eventually, Ishmael must choose between Corey and Spencer, and it’s not an easy decision for him to make. Spencer’s not the brightest guy, but he has a sensitive side that appeals to Ishmael. Corey’s a prize-winning surfer, he’s got two years of college and he looks like a fashion model, but his sexual orientation troubles him.
Both Spencer and Corey want Ishmael as a lover. Which guy will Ishmael choose?
If you want to buy a copy of Maui, here’s the link to the Torquere Press website: http://www.torquerebooks.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&manufacturers_id=191&products_id=2319
It’s another nice, sunny day on the island. I’ll spend part of the day writing, then I’ll hit the supermarket and take a run this afternoon. Intense Saturday, huh? Wherever you are, I hope you’re enjoying the weekend.
