This month marks a very important and critical month for me. We are launching a 30 day campaign for The Detroit Queer. This campaign is being approached through the use of social media and the internet primarily. We are not only spreading the word, but we are planning on creating a buzz about Jimmy's story, my brand and the human experience.
Also, next month marks the kickoff of the book tour. This tour should take us well into the fall also. During the tour, I will be speaking at several events across the country, signing books and also speak to a wide array of demographics. I plan on making this book to LGBTQ members, allies & anybody who is just interested in having a conversation about the human sexuality & what it means to be living a truthful life.
My publicist Dennis Maurice & I , and our teams are revamping our approach in a strategic way. I have lots of things planned in the coming few months that I cannot really talk about. However, what I can say is that the train is moving at the right time and making all the right stops. Spread the word around. Read a free preview through Amazon or simply send the trailer to a friend or someone you know. The time's right, I can definitely feel it in my heart. I'm totally energized and we're just getting started. Thanks for reading, I appreciate all the love & support.
Today I parted ways with my manager. It's not because I didn't see his usefulness, but rather, he had a lot on his plate. My former manager, Manuel, is a very close friend of mine. We were and are still good friends before we became business partners. However, I knew it was the right thing to do. Sometimes you have to know when to call it quits, even when something turns out to be what you did not expect. Right now, my publicist is my main man! I am grateful for everything that he does and continues to do. Without him, this project and public awareness launch will be nothing. I'm currently in the last week of classes @ school. Even though people are stressing out, I'm not for some reason! I believe that as long as I do everything that I am supposed to be doing, things will work out if they are meant to. As long as my game is tight & right, nothing but the best can come out of it. The best can either come out today, tomorrow or years from now. As long as I keep pressing on and as long as I'm aware of myself, life is beautiful to me.
I am currently on spring break. Resting in the beautiful Southern California. Just less than three weeks until my book goes on the market.. My first novel ever! To be honest, there are a lot of things running in my mind right now! Whatever happens, good, bad or indifferent, The Detroit Queer has been a blessing. I am very grateful to my publicist, Dennis Maurice, who is working diligently in securing book tours & speaking engagements. My manager, Mr. Manuel Montano for all the time, faith, money and resources he has invested in me. Most importantly, I am grateful to God because without him I would not have been able to do this! The Detroit Queer is my baby and within a few weeks, it will be born. My story, the story of Jimmy and thousands of other individuals will be heard. I have come a VERY long way and indeed, I have grown. I leave my book in the hands of my readers. Love it, hate it or be indifferent, I hope you come to realize that different is good. I also hope that you realize that we are all beautiful in our own unique way!
