Freedom from the hospital just means the cancer fight just shifts to a friendlier battlefield.
My life MUST continue throughout these skirmishes.
My third book, "Something About Sin" (subtitled - What's the worst thing you've ever done?), is still dropping like Brimstone this Fall. Cancer Schmancer, its dropping, keep your eye on the sky.
Literary Provocateurs, LLC - a publishing company with the goal of capturing the dangerously perverse mind and soul of readers and consumers of the same gender loving persuasion. Also launching this fall helmed by author/activist Nathan James.
2011 is a crazy busy year. Cancer is just an annoying crazy caveat in it.
Bottomline: I've put on my warpaint. I've got my five stones. And unlike that punk Eddie Long, I will throw them all ... and WIN!

'Ange' picks up a lost waif in the rain...
But as the story unfolds quickly the sexual tension and angst over past relationships makes Caught Off Base a sexy and heartfelt introduction to author JM Snyder. The story is expertly written, sexual situations nicely teased out, with even the ominous rise of the antagonist (Lamar) who I wanted to jump into the story to protect Tyler from.
The only complaint is the length. It's too short for the 2.99 price. Should have been .99cents. However its only a mild complaint because I enjoyed the story, and JM Snyder is now on my radar.
The character of Ange is from an earlier Snyder book called Stepping Up to the Plate, which I haven't read yet but its on my to do list.
But creating a character we can feel and touch and care for, and then to take us gleefully along on a heated and teasingly smutty journey of longing and lust -- which, in real life, is so often foolhardy or sadly unrequited -- is not so easy,
In Todd Young's
The plot is simple: Bradley has lost his job and if the rent isn't paid by Friday he'll be evicted. So what's a beautiful, horny 20 year old to do? Answer an ad for a strip-o-gram company that's what. But the details of the job unfold simultaneously with his story as our hapless protagonist indeed becomes corrupted by his needs for survival; and wrestling with that most frustrating question--does the one I desperately love feel the same way?
In the end one is left breathlessly unsure whether Bradley will ever make the right choices, if he'll ever survive or if he's even answered that ultimate, frustrating question.
"Corrupted" sparked painful memories of youthful lust heavily cloaked in subterfuge and hyper-masculine shenanigans, young journeys that many of us have taken and, if we could, would not go back to change one second of it.
Though some situations will stretch credibility in minds that have never had similar experiences, nevertheless, "Corrupted" will surely keep your temperature in the red-zone, teasingly—whether you've lived or only dreamt about it—like only the best gay erotica can.
It seems like ages ago and oddly just like yesterday when I was first approached to participate in this ambitious endeavor. A new millenium collection of black gay literati to combine their voices for one memorable, historic work.
In the honorable and noble tradition of In the Life: A Black Gay Anthology, Brother to Brother: New Writings by Black Gay Men, and Shade: An Anthology of Fiction by Gay Men of African Descent, comes Mighty Real.
At a whopping 737 pages, this newest addition to the lexicon of Same Gender Loving Literature "features both new and established writers. Grounded in a poignant and truthful sensibility, imbued with the realities of sex and love, Smith and Williams present a culmination of poems, short stories, radical essays, sermons, plays and interviews honoring notable figures within the SGLBT community."
So put on some sounds from our tearfully soulful, gender-bending, trend-setting icon of yesterday, the late-great Sylvester [who's song "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)" began a disco anthem] - and sooth your souls with our griots of today.
