I’m honored and happy to welcome Jendi Reiter to my blog today. She’s here on tour for her novel Two Natures, and she will talk about fashion inspiration. (And I had no idea binge-watching Project Runway could be considered research, I think I’ve gone about my research the wrong way 🙂 )
The excerpt is really long, but I urge you to read it all. It will be worth it, I promise. Oh, and a Kleenex might come in handy. I don’t think I’ve ever teared up reading an excerpt before, but there’s a first time for everything, I guess 🙂
Welcome to my blog, Jendi.
Title: Two Natures
Author: Jendi Reiter
Release Date: September 15th 2016
Genre: LGBT fiction, MM Romance
Two Natures is the coming-of-age story of Julian Selkirk, a fashion photographer in New York City in the early 1990s. His faith in Jesus helped him survive his childhood in the Atlanta suburbs with an abusive alcoholic father, but the church’s condemnation of his sexual orientation has left him alienated and ashamed.
Yearning for new ideals to anchor him after his loss of faith, Julian seeks his identity through love affairs with three very different men: tough but childish Phil Shanahan, a personal trainer who takes a dangerous shortcut to success; enigmatic, cosmopolitan Richard Molineux, the fashion magazine editor who gives him his first big break; and Peter Edelman, an earnest left-wing activist with a secret life.
Amid the devastation of the AIDS epidemic and the racial tensions of New York politics, Julian learns to see beyond surface attractions and short-term desires, and to use his art to serve his community.
