UPDATE: Summer 2013

I've said this before but a revamp of my online footprint is coming soon eventually. When that happens, this URL will redirect to my new web home. I am not doing any long-form blogging right now, but I am active in social media:

* Twitter: @500Turtles (work-safe)
* Twitter: @GPTimes (occasionally NSFW, rude language)
* Twitter: @BadMoodQuotes (self-explanatory)

Buy my two most recent books online here (also available in select brick-and-mortar stores, if you can find any):

* Filthy Remarks: 444 Sex Quotes (Bruno Gmunder, 2013)
* Gay Porn Heroes: 100 Most Famous Porn Stars (Bruno Gmunder, 2011)

Work continues on my memoir and solo performance piece about my trek along the Camino de Santiago.

Salud.

P.S. I totally get if sex quotes and porn-y stuff is not your bag. Try the anthology 90069: West Hollywood Stories, which was first published in 2008 by Modernist Press, and is now available for less than $10 on the Amazon Kindle. My story "Will You Be Joining Us on the AIDS Walk This Year?" is among a very fine collection of entertaining short fiction (note: rude language and sauciness). CLICK HERE.

My second book–I know, right?—will be published March 1 via Berlin-based Bruno Gmunder. Filthy Remarks: 444 Sex Quotes features hundreds of pithy aphorisms about sex, men and relationships from poets and porn stars, Nobel laureates and world leaders. If you shop online, I invite you to pre-order via Amazon where the book is just about $12. All of the pre-orders will be fulfilled on publication day, which helps goose my rankings on their bestseller charts. And a quick social media reminder that although I am not doing much blogging these days, I am still active on Twitter and Facebook. This blog and my professional website will be revamped sometime this year. Cheers!

UPDATE: October, 2012

The next two essays in my Camino de Santiago travel series have been posted to the Out Traveler website. If you read my original emails and/or blog posts two-and-a-half years ago, you might recognize some of the stories.

As I note over on my Camino blog, I don't know yet if they'll run any additional installments, but the traffic has been good. I'm researching self-publishing and unless something really great falls into my lap, I'm on track to publish the book next May to coincide with the third anniversary of my adventure.

Thank you for your support! Please log in to Facebook to like, share or leave a comment; if you're on the Twitter machine, please retweet. Help me spread the word that there's a new travel writer in town and he needs to pay some bills.

CLICK HERE for Part 2 ("Pain & Solace").

CLICK HERE for Part 3 ("Self & Solitude").

UPDATE: Sept. 2012

As I note over on my Camino de Santiago blog, I've had a breakthrough: After two solid years of rejection, I finally sold a series of essays about my pilgrimage to Out Traveler, the premiere LGBT travel website. This is a taste of what the book will look like and hopefully will lead to a publishing contract; if not, I'll proceed with self-publishing next spring.

CLICK HERE to read the first essay and help spread the word! I hope you enjoy it. Otherwise, you can find me posting regularly on the Twitter machine.

Update: August 2012

UPDATE: Stay tuned for an overhaul to this blog later this year (I hope). In the meantime, please continue to utilize the links below for my latest scribbling and Twitterings.

In late July, I had my first bylined article published on the website for The Advocate, the premiere LGBT newsmagazine (they did briefly plug my book, published under my pen name, last year). Feels good to have finally cracked that nut! CLICK HERE to read it.

Amazon Kindle

A quick update for you: Both my GPTimes porn blog [NSFW] and my Camino blog are now available via the Amazon Kindle. Both are priced at $1.99 per month and every subscription kicks back a few coins to me. It all helps. There is a free 14-day trial if you want to try it out first. Bless you and everyone who looks like you.

August update

Earlier this month, the Berlin-based publisher Bruno Gmunder sent out an email blast to the industry touting its September slate of books and sundry. My first book, Gay Porn Heroes, was among them. Reading that email blast gave me a shiver. It finally felt real, y'know? It's being published next month and it's in pre-order right now on Amazon.com.

I humbly demand ask that you visit Amazon and click the little link to "like" the entry and help raise our profile on the site. When the book is published, please leave a positive review and/or rate the reviews that may already be there. This also helps boost the book in Amazon's sales algorithm.

A quick note about content. It's an oversized, hardcover photobook with text. I chose most of the photos, arranged them, and wrote all of the mini-essays (over 100). Having worked in this crazy industry since 1995, I was well-suited for the task. Despite the title, it's not a hardcore sex book. But there are photos of naked men, obviously. If you find a typo, don't let me know for while...

As noted in the entries below this one, I'm Tweeting fairly regularly but I'm not really blogging here for the time being. A big upgrade to my online life is coming later this year, hopefully in time for the 10th anniversary of this blog in November.

More to come as the jobs crop up.
