Bankrupt This Man

Holy snappers, Batman!

This man has pledged to donate $1 to the American Red Cross for every comment he receives to this post.

Talk about putting your money where your mouth is. Talk about someone who's going to be eating a lot of Kraft Dinner. Talk about admirable.

Talk about someone whose book I'm going to be buying.

I commented, but I also said that if he's going to end up all bankrupt (which is hardly likely, as we all know how rich unpublished authors are) that I'll send "my" dollar in on his behalf.

His book has an interesting premise: Coming Out Straight is an urban fantasy that juxtaposes sexual identities to answer the question: What would it be like to be straight in a world where everyone is gay? The protagonist, Adam, is a straight man living life in the closet as a sexual minority. He falls in love with a straight activist, and is faced with a choice: come out and find love, or live in the security of his closet, alone.

I'd read that. You?

Go comment, drive the poor lad into bankruptcy, do what you can for the victims of Katrina and pledge to buy his book when it comes out, mmkay?

The idea for that book does sound pretty interesting.

Thanks for posting the link. Quite a commitment he's undertaken!
That puts things in perspective, don't it?
Thanks for posting that - I have a LJ and I linked to him. :)
When I was growing up, my parents had one of those illegal cable boxes (very proud) and during my blossoming "Hey, what's that?" pubescent years, it was not out of the question for me to sneak a little Playboy viewing in (Come on, ladies, you know you've done it, too). I don't remember any of what I snuck, but there is one that stuck with me -- it was a story of a man wrestling with "coming out" as straight in a futuristic society where everyone is gay. I would say that it could be a very interesting non-porno serious study kind of question, but I wonder if this guy Tony saw the same porno?
i put in my 2 cents worth (or $1) and i'm also going to post links to his post. what a way to go!
