I've watched every season of RuPaul's Drag Race, I've done drag as Samantha Fox and I just co-wrote a book with none other than Alaska, so count me in when another RuPaul's Drag Race: Battle of the Seasons event hits NYC.

This past week's extravaganza was a blast! I was able to do the VIP meet-and-greet hour, where I shot all the girls—Manila Luzon, Miss Fame, Sharon Needles, Katya, Jinkx Monsoon, Violet Chachki, Adore Delano, Ginger Minj and Alaska herself—and then even managed to work my way backstage for some quality time with the low-lifes in high heels.

IMG_6291America knows good drag queens when they see them. Here, actual girls give drag a woman's touch.

IMG_6331It takes two, it takes two ... Michelle Visage and friends

IMG_6362With so much feminine beauty around, I still couldn't help noticing the boy of anyone's dreams.

IMG_6423This one also would not have to sashay away.

Backstage was a hoot. Or a hooter.

Sharon was friendly as could be, and embracing a far less Goth look, one of which Eve Arden would approve.

They Read Everyone Else, Now You Can Read Them: Alaska & Sharon Have Published Novels, Girl! Comments (0)

It's been a super secret process, but I can finally announce that I've just published the first novel with which I've been associated in 18 years!

Unspecified(Cover by Donny Meloche/published by Producer Entertainment Group)

As part of the new “Sickening Adventures” series, I co-authored with the delightful, slightly renamed RuPaul's Drag Race star Alaska Thunderfun and the Inner Space Odyssey, a trippy fantasy about being yourself ... even if yourself happens to have crash-landed on Earth by mistake in 1979, okrrrr?

Adding to the good news: Sharon Needles, with Michael Thomas Ford, is publishing her own novel, Sharon Needles and the Curse of the Devil's Deck. That's Deck, with an E, whores.

Unspecified-1(Cover by Donny Meloche/published by Producer Entertainment Group)

Both books, bearing fantastic covers designed by Donny Meloche, are—like the queens themselves—out now!

At the top of this post, check out video of the entire Season 8 cast reacting to news of the novels (“Season 8 is Season Great! I couldn't possibly choose a favorite because I love them all,” Alaska says. “It's been such a pleasure watching every Monday like the rabid fan that I am.”) and below is my exclusive Q&A with Alaska, who should go on to become the next Gore Vidal ... or Vidal Sassoon ... or something.

Please buy the books and let me know what you think ...
