Today, my second novel — Blind Items: A (Love) Story — is published in a new edition, available for the first time in 20 years!
Please check it out if you haven't.
It's a pop culture explosion and a '90s period piece, a gay romance with (I hope) brains and plenty of nostalgia.
Let me know if you buy and read it!
I have a hard time turning the page on things.
The hardest for me is ephemera, various types of which I collect religiously — beefcake photography and clippings, advertising, Madonna magazines and ... books.
I'm a writer, and most of my career has involved some form of publishing, first book publishing (I worked for a rare female literary agent, who was equal parts bohemian and John Bircher; and for St. Martin's Press as an editorial assistant), then news (Reuters, ever so briefly), then porn (when the owner of Mavety Media scoffed at my suggestion he digitize his millions of slides because men would never adapt to jerking off at a computer), then teen entertainment (I founded a pinup mag), then blogging. Through it all, I've published and self-published my own books, too.
In spite of that, I have found less and less time to read over the years, have perhaps even developed — against my will — an aversion to reading anything too long, like a kid seeing a fascinating-looking YouTube video then clicking away upon realizing the length is 8 minutes-plus. In the past few years, I've read scandalously few books, even though I've tried. Does leaving them, half-read, displayed prominently on the little table by my bed count as reading them?
I tried Andrew Sean Greer's orgiastically praised Less, but wanted more.
At least, follow me?

Most-shared post I ever wrote was my list of great gay-porn stars. That was six years ago. Now, a full-fledged update — shares and input appreciated: 225 Greatest Gay-Porn Stars: https://t.co/Ytl1tcIslN— Boy Culture Blog (@mattrett) July 16, 2019
I went to this and my mom was PISSED that I was in Michigan (from Chicago, where I was attending college) and didn't tell her/come home to Flushing.
I'm in here! I'm in the Madonna's Cat tee, which I've seen selling for $100s on eBay. Mine, of course, rotted at the pits 25 years ago.
