Interview with Nathan Bay, author of Young Forever

Greetings, book lovers! Today I’m thrilled to have Nathan Bay as my guest! Nathan is the author of Young Forever, which is out today, and I’ve got him here for a quick interview!


Tell us about your latest release.

Young Forever is a gay erotic thriller. It tells the story of Roger Willis, a man who’s newly divorced and just turned forty. Roger is trying to navigate the complicated world of dating in a technology-driven era, where meeting men is so much different than it was two decades ago when he was last single.

That’s when a handsome young man named Ben Hudson comes along and gives Roger new hope for the future. There’s relationship potential, but Roger has secrets. What will happen when Ben opens the door to Roger’s past and the skeletons come tumbling out?

Meanwhile, gay men are mysteriously disappearing. Rumors suggest they’re being murdered, but there’s no evidence to prove it. The gay community is on edge, wondering if a serial killer is lurking in the shadows. Who’s responsible for the crimes and how can they be stopped?

Lies will be told. Hearts will be broken. Fluids will be spilled. It’s going to be a bloodbath.

Sounds exciting!

young-forever-nathan-bayWhat was the hardest or most difficult scene to write?

A pivotal death takes place in a morgue. I’d written it in a way that was action packed and dramatic. After I finished the first draft of it, I did some fact-checking with a group of morticians and found out the scene wouldn’t work from a technical perspective. I was feeling disappointed that I couldn’t use the scene, but then the morticians chipped in and started brainstorming. They came up with a unique and grisly way to die, and I don’t think it’s ever been presented this way before.

This time, I wanted to make sure I really understood the setting and details. I did research on YouTube watching instructional embalming videos with bodies being cut open and drained. I wanted to make sure I got everything right. The rewrite of the scene is truly horrific, and I’m proud of how it turned out. The subject matter is intense, and it took me to some dark places on the Internet to find answers, but I think it will pay off and be just as shocking for the reader.

*shudder* I don’t think I could do that kind of research… 🙂

What was your favorite scene to write?

Chapter 6: Teenage Dream. It’s the first sex scene between Roger and Ben, and I love everything about it. Although it comes fairly early in the book, it was one of the last scenes I wrote. I put it off for a long time because I felt the pressure of how special this scene needed to be. Not only was it the first sex scene between the lead characters, but it was also the most graphic sex scene I’d ever written—and I knew it was going to be. Procrastination paid off, because once I finally wrote it, I’d already written most of the other material, and I felt like I understood the dynamics of their personalities.

I wanted to capture that magic of new romance, and that testosterone-driven, lose-your-mind type of intensity when two guys want each other so badly that it feels like they can’t get deep enough. It’s not just penetration; it’s truly trying to connect with the other person’s body in a way so satisfying that their spirits merge.

I think (hope) that I’ve accomplished that. It was one of those scenes I stayed up all night writing because it just hit me all at once. When I finally dragged myself to bed in the morning, I felt like I’d gone on a journey. It’s rewarding to witness something palpable between two lovers using only words and imagination.

I know what that’s like — sometimes a scene just takes full control of your body and mind and you can’t do anything but give into it until it’s finished!

Why did you decide to self-publish?

Thanks to Amazon, I’ve discovered a diverse world of self-published authors who are bursting with creativity. They’re able to take more risks with their work and often delve into storylines that traditional publishers would not touch. As a reader, I love it, and as a writer, I wanted to be part of it.

That’s why I think self-publishing is the best fit for me. I like to explore abstract ideas without restrictions. I also like creative control over everything. I’m responsible for my book, the cover design, the marketing, and anything else attached to my name.

Amazon is helping validate this growing new market of writers and giving us a platform. This is an exciting time.

Do you like music while you write? Or do you prefer total silence?

Music is a contributing source of inspiration to my writing process. The Katy Perry song, “Teenage Dream,” is what the book is named after. These are the lyrics:

Let’s go all the way tonight
No regrets, just love
We can dance until we die
You and I
We’ll be young forever

My husband was so mad at me when I revealed the title because “Teenage Dream” was a special song for us. (Sorry, honey.) Now he only thinks of death when he hears it, and there are multiple lyrics within the song that can be given a cryptic slant if you think about it in a different light.

Another major contributor was the music video for Lady Gaga’s song, “Paparazzi.” I first got the idea several years ago when I was watching it and thought about all the beautiful young corpses on display in the mansion. I wondered what the story was, and what if it were a book? That’s where I got the idea for Young Forever. Thanks, Gaga.

I’ve put together a playlist of music that relates to the scenes in the book. The songs are arranged in chronological order, so if you want some ambiance while you’re reading, check it out at

Very cool! I love when the inspiration for a novel is so unique like this!

Well, folks, I hope you enjoyed this meet and greet with Nathan! Now, go over to Amazon and buy the book — it’s out today!

Author Interview: Rebecca James, author of Teresias Bound

Hi book lovers! Today we have Rebecca James, author of Teresias Bound, stopping by for a chat!

RJames-72dpi-1500x2000-1Tell us about your latest release.

My latest release, Teresias Bound, is a sci-fi/fantasy and involves a futuristic trans character. It went live on July 29.

What was the hardest or most difficult scene to write?

I think the most difficult scene to write in this book was the scene where Aiden’s female body is transformed to a male body. I’d never want to make little of the struggle trans people go through, but since my book is futuristic, the transition is more complete and fantasy-like. I had a little difficulty envisioning what that might look like at first.

What’s the most difficult part of writing a sex scene?

For me, the most difficult part of writing a sex scene is making each one unique and sexy. Most M/M readers have read hundreds of sex scenes, and it’s not easy writing something that not only doesn’t sound like everything else out there, but also fits the plot and develops a real connection between characters.

Are you writing anything now? Can you tell us about it?

I usually have several projects going, so I can switch off when my muse takes a notion. Right now, I am writing book two of my Angel Hills shifter series and also working on a sci-fi/fantasy that has a sort of mail-order-husband plot.

Can you describe your editing process?

Usually about half-way through a book, I do what I privately call a “comb-over” where I re-read what I’ve written and get a feel for where I’m going and what I need to make sure to conclude. During this process, I edit errors, rearrange sentence structure, etc. When the book’s finished, I go over the second half, and then I have one or two beta-readers look at it mostly for continuity. It then either goes to my publisher’s editor and then back to me, or, if I’m self-publishing, I hire an editor.

Will you be attending GRL in Denver this year?

Yes! I’ll be there as a supporting author, and I’m so excited about it. I’d love to meet my readers, and if you’re a subscriber to my newsletter and going to be there, let me know—I’ll have a special gift for you. You can drop a message at my website: , facebook:, tweet me: @rjamesromance1, or email me: You can also find me at tumblr:

Thanks for the chat, Rebecca!

RJames-72dpi-1500x2000-1Now, go and check out Rebecca’s new book, Teresias Bound!

Aiden is a man in a woman’s body. His dream is to fly to Aquarix where the elusive Fluens–the only species capable of changing his life record and physically making him a man–reside, and for years he’s been working at a seedy brothel in Solarias to save enough money to make that dream a reality.

Lydo, the prince of Teresias, has spent his youth leading his father’s army and avoiding his responsibilities on his home planet. On brief leave during a dangerous mission, he stops at a brothel and acquires the services of a feisty young prostitute who insists Lydo refer to her as a boy. Amused by the girl, the prince pays her way to Aquarix.

Aiden is euphoric at his transformation, but Lydo is more than a little disconcerted by the fact he is attracted to Aiden as a man.

When it’s time to part ways, Aiden fulfills his second dream by taking a job on a spaceship. Resigned to step into his expected role on Teresias, the prince returns to his homophobic planet. But as the king parades princesses before his son in hopes of a betrothal, Lydo finds his heart remains with a certain adventurous boy somewhere out in space.

Interview with Spencer Barnes, author of Drink, Dance, HUMP!



Greetings book lovers! Today I’m thrilled to have Spencer Barnes with me, author of Drink, Dance, HUMP!

I read this book and knew I had to have him here on the blog for a chat — read on for our interview and then don’t miss the blurb and buy links at the bottom! This book is a sexy and fun-filled read!

Let’s start with a basic question — tell us about Drink, Dance, HUMP.

Drink, Dance, HUMP is a coming out story that paints the gay party scene and all aspects of our crazy gay lives.  Where a conservative gay boy, who had never met a gay before, slowly goes through the coming out process, then ramps up to the full roller coaster ride of meeting boys, making friends, and partying like no frat boy or private school kid could even imagine.  From waking up under a pile of men, having hot tub orgies and getting bjs behind a dumpster kinda ride. It’s like 50 shades of GAY meets Chelsea Handler’s Are you there Vodka, it’s me Chelsea with a touch of Eat Pray Love.

That sounds like a pretty accurate description! Now, this book is memoir, right? Are all the stories true?

It is amazing I’m still alive.  Yes, it’s all true.

This book is FULL of sex… but what do you consider your wildest sexual adventure?

I’ve had so many!  The wildest was probably having an orgy with 5 Greek guys in Athens that I met at a bar with my friend Pete.  It’s in there so you have to read through to find it.  My friend Pete walks into the hotel room at 5am and kicks them all out but I had already humped them all at that point.

Wow… Five guys?

*Clears throat*

Um… even though I write erotica, I’m actually quite shy in real life. If you could give me one tip to pick up guys, what would it be?

You need to be in tune with gay energy.  Watch where boys look, how they position their feet towards you or away, and how long they will hold a glaze.  Gay guys like to chase so you have to let them chase you and then right at the perfect moment on the dance floor or in a bathroom stall you go make your move when you know they are into you.  All of their work in chasing will have paid off but you were actually luring him in like a sailor to the singing Sirens of greek mythology!  To the victor goes the bubble bum.

*Takes notes*

Back to the book — what are you hoping readers will get out of Drink, Dance, HUMP? What’s the message you want them to walk away with?

My story is a universal story of learning what makes you happy.  Only when you let go of social prejudice and what other people think can you truly be you.  Only when you let yourself be young, lustful, and self-indulgent will you every truly self actualize and find yourself.  Gay hedonism is something to run to when you are blessed by being gay than to run from.  I’m extremely grateful that I grew up in a family and city that allows me to be who I am and even allows me prosper.   I’m a lucky kid.

That sounds great! Thank you so much for coming by the blog today, Spencer!

Readers, keep scrolling for the cover, blurb, and buy links! You’ll love this book — I know it!


Spencer’s life is perfect…almost. He’s got a spiffy job and a tip-top wardrobe, a solid group of friends and a packed social calendar. But Spencer’s got a secret: he’s gay. When he finally spills it to his friends & family, a whole new life floods in hard and fast. There are clubs to hit, men to do, and fun to be had.

Drink, Dance, HUMP! is the story of one young man’s journey of self-discovery from being a closeted, suburban kid to a man on the gay party scene in Toronto and around the globe. Spencer dives deep into the raunchy, turbulent world of disco balls and strobe lights, stiff drinks, drugs, and hook-ups with a hot guy or four. Hearts get broken, demons are confronted and Spencer grows up, trying to figure out exactly where he fits in the hedonistic rush of it all.

Step into the adventure of one gay boy as he drinks, dances, humps, and discovers that his hedonistic ways aren’t just something to embrace, but the very road to self-knowledge and self-acclamation.

Buy the book on Amazon

About Spencer Barnes

“In every man there is an eye of the soul which is more precious than ten thousand bodily eyes.”   Plato

This is Spencer’s first memoir / erotica book.  He currently lives in NYC and is still finding and refinding himself by drinking, dancing and HUMPING his way through life.  He believes Plato was super gay firstly because he looked like a Williamsburg gay with that beard and secondly because he knew that it is pointless to pursue anything else when you don’t allow yourself to “know thyself”.

Interview with Max Vos

Greetings, blog-readers!

Today, I’m thrilled to have Max Vos as my guest!  Max is an author of gay erotica and gay erotic romance books — and his newest, My Hero: The Olympian, is out today!

Let’s jump into this interview…

Tell us about My Hero: The Olympian.

My Hero: The Olympian is a continuance of the story of My Hero. The two main characters, Johnny Milloway and Rich Miller, move on from just dating to being partners, learning more about each other and evolving into mature men, while dodging the pitfalls of being gay and star athletes.

Do we need to read My Hero before My Hero: The Olympian? What can those who did read My Hero look forward to seeing in the sequel?

No, you don’t have to read My Hero to enjoy this book but it would help. There’s a lot of history that makes it a better story.

If you had read the first book, then you’ll see these two move ahead as a couple, maturing as they grow and evolve together.

What inspired or motivated you to write the My Hero series?

I never intended to make this a series. I wrote the first one after having watched the summer Olympics and it was the start of football season. The story pretty much wrote itself. The next one took more time. It’s a much larger book also. There was a lot more of their story to tell and readers really wanted more.

Can we hope to see a third entry in the series?

Oh hell no. This one nearly killed me.

Hehehe… 🙂

What was the hardest or most difficult scene to write?

The epilogue.

What’s the most difficult part of writing a sex scene?

Keeping up with whose leg or arm belongs to who.

What’s your favorite part about writing a sex scene?

Sex scenes for me are pretty easy, they seem to flow for me.

What kind of research went into this book?

A lot of research went into this book. Places, times and diving techniques as well as training for Olympic athletes took a lot of time.

Describe your writing routine.

I wake up, have coffee, check email and then I start. I write best early in the morning and typically write four to five hours a day.

What made you decide to write this genre?

It’s what I know.

Where do you like to write? Home? Coffee shop? Subway ride to work?

I typically write best when I am home. No distractions.

Somewhere else? I have written next to the sea, which was nice. Not sure I could do it all the time.

What was your most favorite scene to write?

There is one particular character in this book that I love. Any scene she is in makes me happy.

What’s your most favorite book you’ve read? Why?

So many… I still think To Kill a Mockingbird is still one of my all-time favorite reads.

What’s your most favorite book you’ve written? Why?

The V Unit. I wrote it on a dare/challenge. I swore I’d never write a vampire book, and then did. There are a lot of characters in that book that are so different.

What drew you to this genre?

When I first retired I was looking for something to read, something to help take up some of all this time I suddenly had. I also wanted something that had gay characters in it. I was, once again dared… by the same person, to start writing. I’d complained about what rubbish there was out there.

Why did you decide to self-publish?

I decided to become an Indie author when I was totally screwed by a publisher.

How did you feel when you heard a publisher wants your book?

Ecstatic. Thrilled.

(I guess that was before you got screwed…?)

Are you writing anything now? Can you tell us about it?

I am. I’m about halfway through another book. The two main characters each have PTSD for completely different reasons. It’s a book about learning and moving on.

Do you have any upcoming releases?

My Hero recently came out on audio, which is fantastic. The V Unit will be coming out in January on audio and then of course, My Hero: The Olympian will be out on the 15th of this month.

Of the covers you have for your works, which one is your favorite?

Going Home. I think it is one of the most beautiful covers I’ve ever seen. I use only one cover artist who seems to be able to nail every time.

Can you describe the editing process? Was it difficult?

The editing process is the most difficult and important part of self-publishing. Once I’m done with the manuscript, I send it to a select few beta readers who tear it apart and then I get to put it back together. That’s all before I send it off to a professional editor. Before a book is released, I’ve gone over it at least five times, often a lot more.

Do you like music while you write? Or do you prefer total silence?

First thing in the morning, I’m listening to the news and then music.

Which of your characters is your favorite? Why?

I think Johnny Milloway is my favorite at the moment. He goes for what he wants and once he makes up his mind, it is done.

Which of your characters was the hardest to write? Why?

Sam Stone was the hardest I think. (P.O.W.) He goes through a lot physically and mentally.

Do you have any advice for writers who want to try this genre?

Stay away from the drama.

Which of your characters would you like to meet in person? What would you say or do with that character?

Sarge from P.O.W. He’s just so damned hot!

Thanks for stopping by, Max!  If any folks would like to learn more about Max, click here to visit his website.

And, blog-readers, don’t forget to stop on by Amazon and pick up your copy of My Hero: The Olympian, which releases today!

The Future of Sex – Guest Post by Harley Swank

Greetings blog-lovers!

Today we’re joined by Harley Swank, author of Jacob’s Lantern – and he’s here to tell us a bit about his vision of the future of sex, and how it plays into his new book.

But before we get to the post, check out the blurb for Jacob’s Lantern:

A naughty scientist has designed a machine for erotic pleasure, and he needs strapping young college bros to try it out.

The Future of Sex
By Harley Swank, author of Jacob’s Lantern

What is the future of sex? Is it going to gay bars and hitting on a hundred guys that say no? Is it wasting endless hours on Adam4Adam,, Tinder, Plenty of Fish?

I say the future is MACHINES. Imagine sex machines that can be enjoyed by the Abercrombies as well as the Finches, by the pretty and the trolls. Slavery is illegal, and being a sugar daddy is not an option for most people, which is why Jacob’s Lantern represents one sexual invention, an artifice with holes designed to simulate anuses that are beyond humanity. Tighter, with more ridges, than anything nature could create.

A self-lubricating apparatus that permits the user to penetrate as well be penetrated, with an anal trainer designed to adapt to the virgin anus as well as the professional bottom that expects greater lengths and/or thickness. Whether it’s a lonely man or a socialite with his randy friends, this contraption encourages participation.

If you want to read a story of a sexy scientist and his hot research assistants, I invite you to read Jacob’s Lantern. This 16-page book will be FREE on Thursday, May 14th, and if you have Kindle Unlimited, you can buy it for free any day of the year.

Captured on Video by FJ Smith

UPDATED May 14, 2015: Captured on Video: The Complete Serial is now available on Amazon!

Captured_Front_Cover It’s a busy week here on the good ol’ blog, with lots of hot guests and their scorching books!

Today, we’re joined by FJ Smith, author of the Captured on Video series.  The first four entries in the series have been released and the fifth (and final) entry will be released soon!  And when the fifth book is released, FJ Smith will also release The Complete Serial.

UPDATED: May 14, 2015 — Captured on Video: The Complete Serial is now available for purchase on Amazon.

Check out the blurb for Captured on Video: The Complete Serial:

Kyle Spencer, owner of the aptly-named Captive Studios, has a unique method of recruiting fresh talent for his extreme gay porn videos. He identifies likely candidates from their internet porn viewing habits, stalks them online, and then whisks them away to his basement video studio for proper training. His current acquisition, a shy closeted college-age virgin, turns out to be very special indeed. Exactly how far will Ryan go to prove his devotion to his new master, and will Kyle be able to release him when the time come for a new star to be recruited? ***For adults only, this 22,000 word complete m/m BDSM erotica serial features all five previously published Captured on Video books for one low price.***

And his author bio:

F.J. Smith is the author of the “Captured On Video” m/m BDSM erotica series. He enjoys writing stories that explore both sides of the D/s dynamic.

And now, let’s sit down for our chat and get to know a little more about FJ Smith, Captured on Video, and the inspiration behind it all.

You’re a first-time author, right? What made you decide to write this story?

I’ve written as a hobby since I was in grade school, but this is my first professional publication. The idea for this story started with internet porn, as many good things do. I was thinking about how the people behind porn sites know more about viewers’ kinks than those closest to them in real life. That led to the character of Kyle Spencer, a gay porn site operator who finds fresh talent for his extreme videos by cyberstalking young men who log into his site. The story revolves around the different stages of training his latest prize, a closeted college-age virgin named Ryan.

This serial includes some unusual kinks, especially the later books. How did you come up with the different scenes?

I originally drafted many of the scenes as part of a private correspondence with an interesting young man from New Orleans.   He’s a French Créole quasi-aristocrat who blogs on a number of topics under the name gascon-en-exil. It got to the point we were trying to see who could write the kinkiest scene.

Who won?

I’d say it was a tie. 🙂

So do you see this book as primarily as a BDSM fantasy?

Yes, although that’s true of any BDSM fiction. Anyone interested in trying this lifestyle needs to do the research first and not rely on fictional stories. However, I think that the core of Kyle and Ryan’s dynamic, and how they complete each other, is true to life. They each give the other what they really need.

You make it sound like a love story.

I think it is a love story. Granted, it’s a twisted love story involving gimp masks, gang bangs, frozen cum dildos, and body modification, all of which is captured on video, but a love story nonetheless.

That sounds like my kind of love story! So any more adventures in store for Kyle and Ryan?

The Captured on Video serial completes their story arc, but they will likely pop up as secondary characters in my follow-on serial, currently titled Initiated on Video, which will take place in a college frat house.

Awesome! How can readers keep tabs on upcoming releases?

They can follow my tumblr at or contact me at to be added to my mailing list. Captured_Box_Set

UPDATED: May 14, 2015: Captured on Video: The Complete Serial is now available on Amazon!

Chariots on the Highway by Limor Moyal

Today, I have Limor Moyal, author of the gay romance novel, Chariots on the Highway, as my special guest.  In a moment, we’ll have a chat with Limor to find out more about her book and the inspiration behind it.

First, though, let’s take a glance at the blurb:

Every year, young men come from all over the world to join the IDF and fight for Israel. They leave everything behind and becoming what known as lone soldiers.

Tom, a young man from Kansas, has traveled to Israel to fight for his people. He came to fight, He came to escape.

Dan Green has it all. He owns Greentech technologies, lives in a small mention near Tel Aviv, and looks like a movie star. But his blue eyes, hiding a storm that threatens to smash him.

The end of his marriage to Lena, his memories of his late father, his disappointment with himself and his internal wars, pushing him towards the edge.

Dan and Tom cross paths at a crucial point in their lives. None of them thought that what began as volunteering mission, will change everything they thought they knew.

This is a journey of exploration and discovery. About asking the right questions and finding the answers.

In traffic jams of Ayalon Highway, the bustle of the city, on the battlefield, and deep in their dreams. Together they peel layers of pain, and find themselves.

And now, let’s welcome Limor to the blog and find out more about Chariots on the Highway!  And don’t miss the book trailer at the end of the interview!

Your book is originally in Hebrew and takes place in Israel, how do those facts affect the story?

Well I decided to be the first Israeli woman to write a gay romance in Hebrew. We actually have none, and it is sad and I decided to change that.

The setting in Israel and the fact that the plot is very Israeli makes it very unique for readers because it gives the book added value. Not only you get your fix of gay for you hot story, you get to travel to Israel and enjoy it for the price of 3.99. I think that every book that opens you to new things, and teaches you something you didn’t know before reading it, will leave a stronger impact on you in the long run

What was the hardest or most difficult scene to write?

I think the hardest part was the argument between Dan and Ehud. It’s extremely political, religious, emotional conversation that came from personal liberal beliefs that I felt that I need to express in the book

What’s the most difficult part of writing a sex scene?

Well obviously the fact that I never experience this kind of sex since I’m a female, but I think sex is sex regardless the gender of participants, especially if there are emotions involved, and in this case they only started touching after they were involved emotionally in so many aspects, and that fact made it easy.

What’s your favourite part about writing a sex scene?

To check if it’s working 🙂

I read it, and if it has the desired effect on me, I know I nailed it. I think the best thing about being a woman and writing a gay sex scene, is that it actually kind of living your fantasy because you can never really be one of your characters.

I’ll even say that the best thing about writing in general is the ability to fly with your mind to places that the real you could never reach.

What kind of research went into this book?

Military research, including learning the radio communication codes, twice actually because the original book is in Hebrew and its completely different codes.

The battle in Lebanon is based on real events so I had to investigate it and write it as accurate as possible, same goes to the medical procedures taking place in the story. I worked with a medical doctor to make sure it’s all valid.

And most importantly the sessions Dan has with his shrink are all backed up by a psychologist that is working mainly with GLBT and their families, and has a lot of experience with the issues Dan is having in the book. So basically the story is very realistic facts wise.

What made you decide to write this genre?

Firstly it is my favorite genre as a reader so naturally I couldn’t think about writing anything else. I believe that in order to write a good book you need to write what you would love to read, don’t try to be something else just to sell more books. It’s true that M/M is a smaller market than general contemporary romance, but I don’t find it interesting to read so what is the point trying to write it.

Second reason because I’m a liberal and support gay rights, so being able to help in that aspect is a great opportunity, especially in Israel because here the book is a unique phenomenon and many mainstream readers are reading it, and discovering what is gay love and that gay love is just like straight love, that discovery sometimes can change their point of view and even shift their political views, if I get even one person to open up and support gay rights, I will be a happier human being.

And the third reason is because something about gay love is so strong, because it goes against so many factors. As a gay person you have to fight society, your family and friends, and sometimes even yourself to be able to love freely, and if you choose to make all this sacrifices just to be with the one you love, that is, for me a very bold move and show how deep is that love. Great circumstances to start a book.

Where do you like to write? Home? Coffee shop? Subway ride to work? Somewhere else?

In bed with the lights off.

Which of your characters is your favorite? Why?

All of them because when I finished the book I realized that they are all me, every one of them representing a piece of me that together with the other pieces forms the whole, which is me. Even the unpleasant characters represent the parts of me which I don’t really like, but are still part of who I am.

Which of your characters would you like to meet in person? What would you say or do with that character?

Ehud – I would slap him and tell him to get his head out of his ass!
