I woke up this morning and immediately turned on my computer so I could check my email while I ate my breakfast and I came across an email from my favorite author Marguerite Labbe. She posted a review of my book on her blog and I was so beyond excited because I wasn’t sure how people would feel about reading my book, but apparently it’s good.
Marguerite Labbe is an award-winning M/M author. She wrote those gay vampire books that I love so much starting with “My Heart Is Within You.” I really love to read supernatural fiction, especially when they have vampires, ESPECIALLY when they are gay vampires lol. She really knows how to capture the raw sexuality of two hot gay men better than I have ever even experienced. Let’s just say that I had to take several bathroom breaks when I read her book.

Diary of a Gay Nerd by Michel McDonald
“I’ve had a hard time putting into words how I felt when I read Michel’s memoir. Many parts struck a chord in me from my own childhood, though I was far luckier than Michel was and I didn’t have the added alienation of being gay. I’ve known Michel for several years now, ever since he picked up my vampire trilogy and we started talking. In that time, I’ve found him to be a very kind, passionate and determined man. After reading his memoir I have to add brave to that as well and not just for what he endured and overcame. To be able to write something like this, with such unflinching honesty, takes a rare kind of person. Michel doesn’t gloss over his own mistakes, but puts them out there just as baldly as the abuse he went through.
“I am honored to know such a man and call him my friend.”
How awesome is that? When I first read her book after buying it from Rainbow eBooks, I knew I had to find her on Twitter and tweet her telling her how awesome her book was. I was surprised that she responded, but equally surprised that she continued talking to me through Twitter. We have been talking ever since. I think Twitter is one of the most amazing online services ever invented.
Thank you Marguerite Labbe for writing this review. I have added it to the Barnes & Noble website btw.
