Have a look at this morning’s photo post. What do you think? I know, I know … I post far too many photos of hot guys in boardshorts. Go ahead: call it a fetish. But I think the young man at left is awfully sexy.
Notice the Taco Bell cup. I wonder what he ate for lunch? I’m a Burrito Supreme guy myself, when I dine at The Bell, which is maybe twice a year. It’s not good for the waistline, you know. But it doesn’t seem to have affected his, does it? Aye-yi-yi, what a body …
I was up at 6:30 this morning, and I hit the road with my bike just as the sun rose over the Intracoastal. Hurricane Irene is churning out in the Atlantic, so we’re getting a nice Northeasterly breeze, and it made the ride much more pleasant. I cranked out 16 miles in 90 minutes, not bad.
The transition from distance running to cycling has not been an easy one. Biking gives you a good workout, but not the heart-thumping, lung-pumping, “runner’s high” I always enjoyed in my running days. I’ve been running since I was in college (about a million years ago), and I’ll miss it. But, hey: we all have to accept our limitations, right?
Now, I’m showered and shaved and I’ve just finished my breakfast. I have lots of editing to do on Dodging a Pearl, then I must visit my relative in the hospital, and run a few errands. Last night, I was in bed at 9:30 PM. I was exhausted after getting up at four AM yesterday. Can you blame me?
In other news, it seems my latest book, Flawed Boys, is selling briskly on the All Romance e-Books and Amazon sites. ARE has already awarded the book a “best-seller” star. Yesterday, the book was ranked about 12,500 in all books sold by Amazon. That means it’s in the top 3% of books selling on Amazon right now. Not bad, eh?
Here’s the blurb for the book:
“Flawed Boys offers three erotic tales of guys falling in love with troubled souls.
In Slacker, nineteen year-old Robert’s a high school dropout with ADHD, a limp, and confidence problems. Alcohol and marijuana are Robert’s weaknesses. When he meets forty-year-old Cecil on a construction job, Robert feels attracted to the older man. Cecil offers Robert a job and a home, but there’s a catch: Robert must abandon his self-destructive behaviors. Can Robert master his demons? Can he become the man he wants to be?
In Dream Boy, Keith Reinhardt, a loner in his mid-thirties, finds himself involved with Riley Davenport, a community college student who can’t perform in bed. When Riley explains why, Keith is more than disturbed. Can Keith handle Riley’s psychological issues? Can Riley overcome his fear of intimacy?
In The Little Prince, Will Mittemeyer’s a working class kid with a college scholarship. He’s home on summer break, mowing lawns for cash. Eric’s a Brown University student from a wealthy family. The two meet when Will grooms Eric’s yard. Will is repelled by Eric’s haughty attitude, but soon learns it’s all a front. In truth, Eric is friendless, emotionally insecure, and intellectually challenged. Despite Eric’s problems, can the two become friends? Perhaps more?
We all dream of ideal lovers, but often we settle for less. And it’s strange: less-than-perfect men are sometimes what we truly need. Read about it, in the pages of Flawed Boys.”

Okay, everyone: enjoy your Thursday.
