Having been so busy with prepping Animal Attraction, I forgot to stop by and say hello to the gang here!

Forgive me.

First off, a big thank you to Karenne and the hard work she does. It's a blessing to have supportive writer friends.

My official bio goes something like this:

Vincent Diamond is a native Floridian who edited Animal Attraction for Torquere Press and whose work has appeared in Screaming Orgasms and Sex on the Beach, Coming Together for a Cure, Country Boys, Hot Cops, Love in a Lock-Up, Best Gay Romance 2007, Best Gay Love Stories 2005 and 2006; electronically in Feathers, Chance Encounters, and Play Ball from Torquere Press; and online at Fishnet, Clean Sheets and Ruthie’s Club. Time away from the keyboard is spent riding horses, gardening, and pondering the inestimatable beauty of tigers. More info is at: www.vincentdiamond.com (http://www.vincentdiamond.com).
Diamond once drove from <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:City w:st="on">Tampa</st1:City> to <st1:City w:st="on">Anchorage</st1:City>, <st1:State w:st="on">Alaska</st1:State> in the days before the <ST1:place w:st="on">Alcan Highway</ST1:place> was paved. (Hey, there was this hunky Army lieutenant--nothing more need to be said.). Diamond gleefully buys smutty periodicals for “research materials” and lists them on a Schedule C every year. The IRS has yet to question this deduction.

I write male/male romance and erotica, along with action/adventure, a little horror (mostly werewolf stories), and mainstream/litfic. My first novel is under consideration with two publishers right now, and I edit and proof full-time. (And I'm sure because I say that, there'll be some glaringly awful typo in this post).

And I'm looking forward to meeting and talking with y'all (see, I'm from the South!) in the future!

:welcome: Vincent from another Floridian in the Tampa Bay area! I'm glad you found CTR! Your life and work sound very interesting. I do hope your first novel gets picked up by one of the publishers. Oh, I also share your facination with tigers. ;) They are extremely beautiful to say the very least. :wub:

We are very blessed that Karenne has set all of this up for you writers and us readers. She is one heck of a woman. :notworthy:

Enjoy your time here!
