1: What is the working title of your book?
Perfect For Me
2: Where did the idea come from for the book?
At the first GRL conference, I was drinking with Kris Jacen and we were talking about topics NOT covered in the genre of gay romance. One such topic was the pairing of HIV positive and negative men. I found this to be a topic worth tackling.
3: What genre does your book fall under?
Gay contemporary romance
4: Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Sean would be James Franco and Emery would be Channing Tatum

Love is not bound by restriction.
6: Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
The book is coming out through MLR Press
7: How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
About 3 months for the first half, followed by a 6 month break, then 2 months for the second half.
8: What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Caregiver by Rick R. Reed, Song for a New Depression by Kergan Edward-Stout.
9: Who or What inspired you to write this book?
10: What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
I’ve flipped the plot on its head. Where you’d expect the negative guy to be the one to have to realize it’s okay to date someone positive, I have it so the positive guy is the one with the hang up about a negative partner.
