From my Press Release:
You Can Run: Gay, Glam, and Gritty Travels in South America (July 2007; Haworth Press; $19.95) chronicles the two intrepid years author Jesse Archer spent glittering through the rough and tough of South America with a co-dependent ex-boyfriend, a prissy Argentine, and a hot pink wig.
The "Prissy Argentine" part of that equation is Walter. If he lived here, he'd be able to afford all the Gucci he holds so dear. Why? Because Walter is a chico loaded with immeasurable talent. I've always envied him. Walter did the illustrations found in my book, which he now says are embarrassing. He also decided he doesn't like the final cover of the book. So he went ahead and created his own. Here is Walter's vision for "You Can Run" (click to make bigger).
Jesse, in genuine Peter Pan.
Walter, luxuriating on imaginary Vuitton.
"Can you tell that I love you?" writes Walter. "Look at that body I gave you!" I see...
Today, one of my all-time favorite bloggers is giving away a copy of "You Can Run" to one lucky winner! Click here to go to Joe.My.God, find his "Swag Tuesday" posting about my book and comment with your email. Someone is going to win. Why shouldn't it be you?
If you're a hobo a go-go like me and believe you deserve everything for free, you could be right. Post a comment to JMG's blog post about my book, and if you don't win, then you were wrong. Which means that you should buy my book with your own money (buy it here!). Like I say, give yourself the gift of "You Can Run." It will last a lifetime, especially for those of you who can't read.
You're Welcome - He's lean & ready.
