I’m thrilled to share that the trade paperback edition of MORE is almost here. Check out the cover art…
After getting the print rights back from my publisher and doing a bit of research, I decided to go the self-publishing route. I don’t have a definite release date yet as I need to review the final proof before it can go live. It should be available for purchase in the next few weeks. Keep an eye on my site for more details.
Like most Americans, I will never forget that day ten years ago. I remember exactly where I was when I heard that the first plane had crashed, then the next, and the next, and finally the last. I remember the impossibility of watching men and women jump to their deaths from the World Trade Center. I remember watching the twin tours collapse and not comprehending what I was seeing. I remember the tears, the fear, the countless stories of heartbreak and heroism that left me speechless.
I remember the chilling moment I saw a plane flying overhead on the day they started air traffic again. I remember talking with strangers in stores and on sidewalks, sharing news and comments as if we were old friends.
In honor of remembering that day and all who were lost, here’s an amazing memorial video and a link to the story of one of the day’s heroes and the brave mother he left behind.

Unexpected legacy left by hero of Flight 93: How a mom has “became a tireless advocate for issues that were important to her son.” “The openly gay rugby player was one of the heroic passengers who led a revolt against the terrorists on United Airlines Flight 93.” (I don’t think the video is available anymore, but you can still read the story).
Sorry there was no post on Friday. I’ve spent the past week working on an outline for More #3 (Matthew’s story) and time got away from me.
For today’s video here is a wonderful collection of Steve Walker’s paintings. His work is gorgeous, and each one could serve as the inspiration for an entire story. Check out his site at www.stevewalkerartist.com

I love browsing the Adonis Art Gallery, “the premier gallery of art of the male form.” The gallery and their website include “limited edition prints, art books and a wide range of greeting cards featuring male art.”
Adonis Art “was established in London in 1995. It is situated in the Earl’s Court district of central London – one of the most gay-friendly neighbourhoods in the city.”
Check out their Erotic Art page for beautiful erotic figures, paintings, watercolors, explicit drawings, and much more. Some really lovely stuff here, folks. You can shop and browse until your heart’s content. I found a few pieces I’d love to have in my house.

Today I’m loving Gus and Waldo, two gay penguins in a monogamous relationship. They are silly but cute enough to make me smile.
If you haven’t seen them before, check out their site at: www.gusandwaldo.com. They have books, T-shirts, and a video on YouTube that is adorable with a sexy way to deal with spiders. I haven’t read the books (just seen the previews on their site), but the YouTube video is fun.
So has anyone out there read the books? Have you seen Gus and Waldo before? Comment or send me an email. I’d love to know what you think.
I’m loving Dylan Ricci’s Photography. His work is beautiful and inspiring. Visit the site at www.dylanricci.com where you can check out galleries of his work. Amazing stuff, folks. Note: These are nude male photos. May not be work safe.
Here’s some text from the site:
“I have become regarded as a photographer of the male nude, although it is not the male nude per se that interests me. What excites and fascinates me and motivates my explorations of the innate aesthetic beauty of the male body are the very same elements of image-making that have obsessed western artists for centuries: the interplay of light and form.”
“Ricci’s images are stylish, classic with a sense of timeless beauty often lacking in contemporary male nude photography.”
What do you think? Which picture is your favorite? Comment or send me an email. I’d love to hear your thoughts.

I am loving Michael Breyette’s art. It’s beautiful and inspiring. Check out his gallery, browse the on-line shop, or send a friend an ecard. Click the banner below to check it out. Please note: the site contains explicit gay imagery.
Here’s a description from the site.
“Michael’s pastel paintings capture the stunning beauty of the male form with warmth and sensitivity while never shying away from lustful eroticism.
This website contains fine art depictions of male nudity, gay themes, and men in sensual and romatic situations. Do not enter if you choose to be offended by this subject matter.
Otherwise, if you appreciate the male form in all its glory, come on inside and enjoy”
