Two weeks to dedicate to my book.


Now I've the means, I'm firmly resolved to get Bokassa's Last Apostle into print, vie the Gay Author's Workshop a.k.a. Paradise Press. There really isn't the market for it out there, so the self-publishing route is best all round as I don't automatically feed 50%+ of the income to agents/publishers/distributors etc. Furthermore, Paradise Press is a well regarded house, even though everyone knows it's really just an umbrella for self-publication. So I'm reading the third installment to the upcoming meeting of GAW on Sunday, then attending the London Book Fair next week to sound out print-on-demand publishers and then... off to Marrakech for a fortnight to get the final editing sorted out before I send it to an editor.

Watch this space for the reports...

  1. Thank you for confirming what I suspected from all the "this isn't for me" rejections I received from agents: no one will touch a gay book.
