Jeff opens with the announcement that the Love Is Proud anthology, which benefits Equality Florida's fund for the victims and their families of the Pulse nightclub shooting, is now out. In addition, he gives some updates on his writing week.
In podcast news, the show is now distributed on iHeartRadio's podcast network. Listeners are also encouraged to like the show on Facebook where we've been experimenting with Facebook Live and Will posts pictures of hot guys reading.
Jeff is participating in Cycle for the Cause: The Northeast AIDS Ride for the sixth year. Proceeds benefit HIV/AIDS Services at the LGBT Center in NYC.
Jeff and Will interviewed Joanna Penn earlier in the week about her non-fiction books for authors. Joanna's interview will air August 8 and 15. It's loaded with great information for authors and is a peek inside the author business that readers should also find interesting.
Wade Kelly appears on the show as part of the 2016 GRL Blog Tour. She talks about her new book, Back Off! That's My Jock, which comes out August 26. She's also got a giveaway as part of her blog tour for the book.
The guys talk about summertime TV (Dead of Summer and the Looking finale movie) and review books from M.J. O'Shea, Christian Baines and Ava Drake. They've also got the first calendars for 2017... and they're hot!
