Kinda thrilled AF to share the title and cover of my new book.
"Love Notes To Men Who Don't Read" is out on 8th September.
My previous work has been very personal to a large extent, but this is the first time I've written a gay novel, explicitly from a gay perspective. It's all gay. All the time.
I'll save the hard sell for September, but if any other novel captures contemporary gay gym / dating / social media culture in the way that "Love Notes" does, I'd like to know it.
It's published by Limehouse Books and I'll be in London for the release.

2015 Review

Here is a list of my top 30 favourite songs of the year:

(oh and here's a Spotify playlist for them but they are in ranked order, so it's quite schizophrenic - plus a couple are missing)






  










20. Love comes quickly – Mark Morriss (can't find link)










30. Poacher’s pride – Nicole Dollanganger

This was more of an album year, which is to say there were some incredible albums that I couldn't necessarily pick highlight "singles" from. They just worked as albums. This applies to at least the top five in the list below.

Here is a list of my top 15 favourite albums of the year:

1. Sufjan Stevens – Carrie And Lowell

2. Björk – Vulnicura

3. Baio – The Names

4. Gaz Coombes – Matador

5. Belle & Sebastian – Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance

6. SOPHIE – Product

7. Mark Morriss – The Taste Of Mark Morriss

8. Ryan Adams – 1989

9. Jamie xx – In Colour

10. Blur – The Magic Whip

11. Quarterbacks – Quarterbacks

12. Chemical Brothers – Born In The Echoes

13. Lana Del Rey – Honeymoon

14. New Order – Music Complete

15. Peaches – Rub

And there we have it, the (musical) review of the year.
