I Kissed Shara Wheeler
“Are you a young queer person looking for a safe place to process your religious trauma? Do you wish John Green’s Paper Towns was about sapphic academic rivals? Do you sympathize with Chloe Green absolutely losing it when the popular girl she’s been fighting for Valedictorian for four years kisses her out of nowhere and runs away- leaving behind personalized clues to track her down? Look no further, you’ve found your next favorite book by your new favorite author- and with your new favorite audiobook narrator to boot!”Caitlin, Bank Square Books
“Vern is a captivating protagonist from page one: gritty, determined, flawed, clever, and resourceful. The story slowly fills in all the details of a life that wasn’t what it seemed, and offers an ending you can’t predict. Sorrowland is beautiful, ugly, engaging, and awe-inspiring.”Sydne Conant, A Room Of One's Own Bookstore

A Lady for a Duke
“Heartwarming and truly lovely—two childhood best friends, who thought they were irrevocably lost from each other, find one another again, both changed and the same. They fall in love—or perhaps, finally name the love that has always existed between them. With splashes of romantic angst, sharp wit, PTSD, addiction issues, this story is overall touching and beautifully hopeful.”Emma, Content

"I've always found the definition of machismo to be ironic, considering that pride is a word almost unanimously associated with queer people, the enemy of machistas. In particular, effeminate queer men represent a simultaneous rejection and embrace of masculinity . . . In a world desperate to erase us, queer Latinx men must find ways to hold... Read more »

Love & Other Disasters
“I’m not a huge romance book person but I really enjoyed this one! This queer love story between a quirky self–taught cook and her seasoned (haha) nonbinary rival on a cooking show is incredibly charming and the perfect amount of hot, too. London’s quest to come out isn’t easy but ultimately validating. I hope to see more stories like theirs center-stage in romance and beyond!”Sam, Phoenix Books

I'm Not Hungry But I Could Eat
“It’s wildly delightful to have such a slender short story collection provide a full course meal of emotion: savory, salty, sour, sweet, tender and all-around charming. These are portraits of hungry men--craving touch, love, and acceptance--and finding it in friends and family (and food). True to the title, I found myself satisfied by the end of the book, but excited for what Gonzalez will serve up next.”Luis, Avid Bookshop
