  • Mason Stokes: Saving Julian - New Novel!

    in Writing

    Author Mason Stokes will showcase his new novel, Saving Julian on tonight's show! Call 323 567-1493 to ask the author a question! Saving Julian is a darkly comic journey into the sad, strange world of ex-gay ministry. The novel tells the story of Paul Drucker, a 58-year-old psychology professor and part-time preacher. Author of Saving Our Boys from the Gay Menace, Paul is much in demand on the ex-gay lecture circuit, sharing the heterosexual gospel with those in need. As he tells his audiences, “there’s no such thing as a gay man. There are only men with unmet homoemotional love needs. And this can be fixed.” But when Paul is caught with Julian, a 21-year-old “escort” he found online, he knows his world is about to fall apart. In a world of Larry Craig and Ted Haggard, Saving Julian offers an irreverent and poignant take on the lies, hypocrisies, and downright cruelty of those who think love is a thing to be cured.  Buy Saving Julian on Amazon RIGHT NOW by clicking here!http://www.amazon.com/Saving-Julian-Mason-Stokes/dp/1925180751/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1427161466&sr=8-1&keywords=mason+stokes
