HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO DON’T LET ME GO

coverforlambda Today is a very important day.

Today JH Trumble’s DON’T LET ME GO officially hits shelves.

I read this story about two years ago, and it’s one I love a lot. I say it’s one of my favorites, and that’s really, really true—not just because JH is my friend, but because the writing is impeccable and the storyline is flawless. And the characters? You will love them so much it hurts.

It’s about love and acceptance and hurt, but mostly love. I remember sitting down at the kitchen table one night, and opening up a word document, reading the first page, and not being able to stop. That manuscript was flawed and had typos and missing punctuation but oh dear god was it amazing. I couldn’t get past the first ten pages without sending JH emails like, “PAGE TWO! I adore paragraph five.” When I was finished the story, I told JH something along the lines of, “I hate this book, it makes me want a boyfriend too bad.”

Now and then I’ll re-read DLMG or something else from the ever-talented JH, and I’ll tell myself, “Man I am lucky to have such a talented friend.”

So you should get your hands on a copy of this book. Because I love it, and I think you will too.

You can read an interview I did with JH on Lambda here.
