A few copies of the uncorrected bound proof (i.e., they're just missing the last round of copy-editing, but most of the bugs have been worked out) of the soon-to-be classic novel of love and deception -- Trust Fund Boys -- are now in my possession. Yay team!

Here's the deal: if you want an advanced look at the novel that will be the talk of the Book World this summer -- and you get to me early (first come, first serve, and all of that) I can get a copy to you. All you have to do is send me a mailing address. Or you can arrange to meet me in a bar in Manhattan some night. (See how easy I am?)

Oh yeah -- one more thing. You have to promise to review it. Yes, I do prefer good reviews, but I believe in the First Amendment, so write what you feel is honest. I'm a grown-up. I can take it. With the caveat that you can't take shots at typos that will be edited out when the final manuscript is released; I'm giving you the same edition the reviewers will read, so behave accordingly. (Full confession: there is one major fuck-up at the end that I missed, and I will confess all in time. For now, let's just say that -- as a gay man -- I am embarrassed about my mistake, and will gladly confess all if you discover my error.)

C'mon, boys and girls: this is the real deal! This is, to the best of my knowledge, the first novel that mentions Gawker. This novel may (or may not) fictionalize a quasi-well-known social columnist of my acquaintance. This novel may (or may not) parody a certain 'gentlemen's bar' of my acquaintance. This novel builds on that famous New York magazine "Trophy Boys" cover. This novel even involves Porn On The Internet!

So don't be shy, kids. Remember: first come, first served.

Leave a comment (although they don't seem to be working lately) or E-Mail me.

Happy Reading!
