My name is Joey Manley, as you may have guessed by now.
In 1991, when I was 26, my first novel was published by St. Martin’s Press. It wasn’t very good. I did not believe this at the time. I assumed that it would make me rich and famous. When the world paid no attention (even my publisher paid no attention), I gave up on writing for many years. I just didn’t see the point of pushing another fireball of hot love and labor through that system and having it come out on the other end all mushy and wet. You know?
The rise of indie publishing via Kindle and its sister platforms has inspired me, and I am working on a new novel, “Snake-Boy Loves Sky Prince, a Gay Superhero Teen Romance.” I hope to have it finished approximately summer of 2012, and then self-publish to all the eBook and POD vendors.
