Randy Boyd’s books

My books are like¬†my kids. I’m happy with the way they turned out. I’m also happy to announce that all four of my novels are now available as e-books.

Each book is piece of myself set forth into the world, a reflection of my dreams, a part of my soul. The main perspective is that of a black gay man living with HIV/AIDS. Go figure.

Each book has been nominated for a Lambda Literary Award. Each book has been Lucci’d every time. ūüôā

When people ask me which book to start with, I tell them: if you really want to know what it’s like being me, go for Walt Loves the Bearcat. It’s full of the most autobiographical nuggets, the novel I’m most proud of, and it‚Äôs also the book that inspired my next series of books.

But I’ll let you decide. Hopefully, you’ll get to know and love all my kids. Wouldn’t that be cool?
