Muscle Men (Cleis Press) Coming in June

My story "The Ambivalent Gardener and the State of Grace" about a former Gator football player who comes rather dramatically out of the closet will be included in Muscle Men, a new anthology by editor Richard Labonte coming in June from Cleis Press.

When I got the email from Richard I had just started playing with this story with the idea of expanding it to novella or novel length.  It's transforming into something bigger.  We'll see where that takes Jericho Thomas, former Gator football player.


  1. Hey Jamie, congrats! I'm going to be in MUSCLE MEN too with my story FIGHT CUB. Hot muscley wrestling college boys - enough said, really!

    It's going to be a fun anthology!
