It’s finally out! I’m so excited to share this story with everyone. It went through a few iterations and I’m pretty proud of how it came out. So proud that Thursday Euclid and I embarked on our first ever blog tour.
We created some fun material, including “pre-interviews” like they do for upcoming reality shows. Tully did one and then Wyatt. Then, since Tully is a rock star and we had a spot in a music and book magazine, we did a Tully music playlist.
Then we did a couple of fun pieces from the author perspective. Thursday wrote a great piece on his body image as a queer man and what writing a bear was like. I wrote a less touching piece about being a drummer, but that won’t be out until tomorrow. Next Tuesday you’ll see a piece from Thursday about Wyatt’s Texas cuisine that was featured in the story, but until then, enjoy this recipe for Wyatt’s Peach Cobbler.
If you’re not too burned out from all of that, feel free to listen to our 15 minute podcast where we discuss what motivated us to write this story.
Wyatt’s Recipes for Wooing Rock Stars
Wyatt Parker has a good life—he owns his own construction company, his own house, and he eats home-cooked meals every day. But cooking for one while watching the foodie network is more than lonely. When he learns about an upcoming reality show centered on becoming the personal chef for his favorite rock star, Wyatt leaps at the chance to audition.
Tully Randolph is the drummer for the band Unusual Potatoes. With a chef for a mom, love of good food runs in the family. When he’s asked to host a cooking competition, he’s all in—especially after he meets Wyatt, who is just the kind of big, hairy guy who gets Tully’s juices flowing. With a heart as big as he is, Wyatt wows Tully with his skills in the kitchen… and in the bedroom.
But if their relationship is found out, Wyatt could be drummed out of the competition—and out of Tully’s life. All the ingredients for a happy future are in front of them, and they just need to figure out how to bring everything together.
