Gay’s the Word and Perking Down Under

I’m ecstatic to announce to the room that London’s Gay’s the Word, Blighty’s premiere LGBT bookshop (and voted 3rd in the top 50 bookshops in Britain by the Independent newspaper), have added Perking the Pansies to their illustrious shelves. This is better than sex. Gay’s the Word really is the place to be seen. If you’re in the area, pop in, browse the aisles and thumb through the many titles on offer (and buy my book, of course). To celebrate this latest achievement and whet your appetite, I’ve released the first five chapters for everyone to read.

It doesn’t end there. Are you sitting down? On the very same day I found out about Gay’s the Word, my publisher told me that the Bookshop – Darlinghurst, Australia’s pre-eminent LGBT bookstore is also offering the book for sale, just in time for Mardi Gras. The discerning readers of Sydney will have the opportunity to meet:

“…the oddballs, VOMITs, vetpats, emigreys, semigreys, debauched waiters and middle England miseries.”

I can now declare that, just like the British Empire of yesteryear, the sun never sets on these pansies.

  2. Good stuff, Jack. I’m sure my fellow Sydneysiders are running amok in the streets of Darlinghurst chomping at the bit to get hold of your book (fingers crossed). Interesting to know if it did well around Mardi Gras time? Fyi, Darlinghurst is a fairly high-class suburb so your book is certainly in esteemed company. Great news about the book’s distribution far and wide, and long may it continue.

  4. Congratulations Jack and good luck with the writing. My husband has written his first book, to be published in Turkey in May so following your experiences with your first book with interest. He was ecstatic when the publishers agreed to publish it but I am now so worried that if it does not do well he will get disappointed. God there is always something to worry about….

    1. Congratulations. He should be very proud of his achievement. Hardly anyone gets published these days so whatever happens next he will always be able to say “I am a published author.”
