Weird, creepy and yet strangely, kinda hot.

If you’re interested in a receiving a PDF version of my novel, King of Cats, about a closeted gay rock musician living on New York’s Lower East Side, just drop me a line with your e-mail address (blake@blakefraina.com).

Please note this is NOT an EPUB file so it is not compatible with digital reading devices. And be warned, KoC is not your typical self-published HEA M/M romance novel. It’s pretty heavy and downbeat.

But hey…it’s free! Why not give it a shot?

It would be great to get feedback or a review.

Anyone else here heard of La Roux? She's so much fun, I'm way obsessed, and think a lot of you will be, too! "Bulletproof" is definitely my favorite song, and they just put a video out for it!

Indie Queer Lit - Before I Lose My Style by Mike Kaspar [Oct. 19th, 2008|07:50 pm]

I read a lot. Much of what I read are LGBT novels. Some of it is downright dreadful, but since I’m selective I tend enjoy most of what I choose, but every now and then I stumble across something that’s just so special that I’m compelled to share.

The last time I was this excited about something was Ginn Hales’s Wicked Gentlemen. My latest love object is entirely different, but no less enchanting. Behind the cut is my review of Mike Kaspar’s debut novel, Before I Lose My Style. If you’re looking for something funny, warm and well written, with a host of fascinating characters, you should definitely check this one out:

King of Cats [Apr. 4th, 2008|11:14 am]

I hope this is allowed here. If not, feel free to delete the post.

This is a bit of a promo for my self-published [original slash] novel. It is about a gay rock musician, sort of in the vein of the Strokes or the Kooks...so that's in keeping with the indie theme, right? Anyhow, it came out about four years ago and, since sales have flattened out recently, I thought I'd give it one last pimp here on LJ.



It's entitled King of Cats and it's about a closeted British rock guitarist living on NY's Lower East Side and his troubled relationships with the two men in his life. It's not your typical gay novel and it's not populated with gay novel stereotypes. You might enjoy it if you're looking for something contemporary, but dark and a bit different.

im an amateur zinester, and i thought maybe someone could help me out...

i got this zine, queer up yr radio, and it's a short small zine, 4x5.5".
so far, i'm writing about queerscene here in my area. my punk rock ideas, things to do when yr bored.
some artwork and supporting bands or social events. but i got no images. sure i can take pictures of me on my guitar, but that's not fun (ugly face). i was wondering if anyone wants to send me some cool pictures, or art, or whatever...

+plus: i feel like is should add something else to this zine, but i don't want it to big because it's such a small zine. so help me out! i got the ideas down, sketches and testzines on how it would look and feel.
