Publisher's Summary

Matt Tompkins, a reserved gay man, has always played by the rules and has created a comfortable but unfulfilling life for himself. When his bold best friend, Greg, reaps unexpected rewards for standing up for himself in public, Matt's jealousy leads him to risk everything when he's confronted by two attackers. Determined to be more like Greg, a split-second reaction brings astonishing changes to Matt's life - for better and for worse.

Set in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood, Gaybash explores the boundaries of love and friendship and the unintended consequences of wanting to be somebody else.

Well done David!

I’m just taken! I got transported to Chicago and felt like I was there with Matty each time I hit play. I could not put it down! You pay attention to detail when you write, and it brings everything to life.
I’ve never been in a situation where I was picked on or bullied, but I relate to not fitting in with circles around me. I definitely felt Matt's pain through your style of writing, and, even more amazing, I could feel the pain and emotions of everyone around Matt.
This book is written to grab a huge audience, and that’s a great skill. I feel you don’t have to be gay to relate to this novel; so many people are bullied and so many people feel like they don’t fit in. Even parents can take something out of this and maybe learn to handle acceptance and crisis with a more open mind.

I already have 4 readers at work curious about getting your book.

I’m excited about your next one.
Well done David, and thank you!
