I'm proud to announce the pre-release of my new book titled Boys. These are the stories of three boys living in Texas: one growing up, one dreaming, and one fighting to stay alive in the face of destitution and adversity. There's second-grader William, a shy yet imaginative boy who schemes about how to get back at his school-yard bully, Randy. Then there's Sam, a 15-year-old boy who dreams of getting a 1980 Mazda RX-7 for his sixteenth birthday but has to work at a Greek restaurant to fund his dream. Finally, there's Seff, a 21-year-old on the brink of manhood, trying to survive along with his roommate, working as waiters and barely making ends meet. These three stories are told with heart, humor, and an uncompromising look at what it meant to grow up in Texas during the 1980s and 1990s.
The cover was designed by Andrew Leeper and myself. The book was edited by my long-time editor Brandon Wood as well as Robyn Smith. And the photo of yours truly was taken by my beautiful wife, Lori Hoadley. Boys is published by Mutt Press. The official release date is August 1, 2015. Reserve your copy now!
