Turning Trick: A Boywhore Tale
How did you come by the idea?
Sal did this digital drawing of a prettyboy sucking a man's finger based on yaoi-style manga art (see image at top of blog), and we started talking about fantasies of hot gay boywhores and brainstorming a novel about them. We didn't want to do a realistic exposé or anguished confessional, but rather a contemporary fairy tale of sorts, blending hurt/comfort, playfulness, hot sex, and happily ever after for the protagonist Jen, a young, professional hooker with a rough past --see image above, and Patrick, a.k.a. Trick, the street kid he takes in and teaches the trade.
What genre does your book fall under?
Yaoi meets contemporary gay romance. Unless "pretty boywhores in luv" is its own genre, which it should be.

(with a dash of Barbra Streisand added)
When young male prostitute Jen decided to take in an eager street kid and make him his protégé, he had no idea how their time together would change them both.

Will your book be self-published or traditional?
Storm Moon Press has expressed interest, and we're thrilled.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
We haven't finished it, but we're estimating about a year: Boywhores, they're what's for Christmas 2013.
It’s probably most like the playful hard yaoi manga of Youka Nitta or Yamano Ayane. And, of course, it’s somewhat like our novella After the First Taste of Love because we love writing hot m/m hurt/comfort tales featuring beautiful boys.
Yaoi manga, fanfiction, and each other. We spur each other on…as often as possible.
