Had Galley Proof been shelved under general fiction I might be more forgiving to the abrupt style changes and the utter gallwy of the thin red line that connects it all, but it wasn’t and I’m not.
You see, there is always a point. Not a mega star, but with enough imagination and talent to have a nice career. Prokf in most places but serious when necessary. Florine on Jimmy Simpson: If only Arvin had said what he made his character say:.

Bullying takes many form: At which point you either decide to move on and give this author a wide berth in the future, or you decide to give something back to the reading community and write a longwinded review that starts with a handful of meta-paragraphs sure to annoy innocent review readers.

Sole Focus: Book Review – Galley Proof by Eric Arvin
Logan is a wonderful character – snug in his safe world, safe little town, galely home, safe relationship, safe career. Un libro che non si vuole scrivere, un’esistenza che non decolla, una ricerca stralunata ma positiva.
Beautiful, brilliant, brawny, and if the book is as autobiographical as I suspect, hung like a bull as well – you’ve got it all covered. Whatever led to the creation and publication of this book, is everything that’s wrong with the publishing industry today.
The writing was clever and completely satisfying. If it was intended, it was well done, and if it was not…maybe it is anyway.
Let me start out by saying that I do not like romantic comedies. God put the rest of us mere mortals here on Earth so that advin brilliance would shine just that much brighter. Post was not sent – check your email addresses! If it had to be published as a gay romance novel or erotica wannabe, why not write one.
This book sounds like such a train wreck I’m kinda tempted to read it. Every joke gets a laugh, but they don’t come cheap.
And this author thinks he was. I had to stop myself from highlighting line after line because there really is no point in highlighting an entire book. My issue with this book though was that it seemed to want to say and achieve too much, ending up being all over the place. For all the flowery words and humour this was a bland read for me. And damn, but he succeeds. There, he involved in sexual encounters with several Italian hunks, and even two of them at the same time.

Author Week Review : Galley Proof by Eric Arvin
Like Brock before, she just wanted to push him a bit to the directions she wanted. This is the type of book that I had a soundtrack in my head that related to all the emotions and situations and I love when that happens: Solid read from beginning to end.
He has a boyfriend, that isn’t bad prolf, has a nice ass, a job and a pulse. Curtis asked him what he’s doing in Rome, ;roof why he didn’t write anymore. Don’t think this is important for his medical care? I don’t belong to those religions, but I cringed when I was reading this book. I felt a break between the early chapters and the later ones.
Both books seem to try to be about everything, and end up leaving the reader unsure about anything. After all, gay people and those who are sympathetic to their cause always argue for diversity.
All that energy, fun and sparkle masking a sad and lonely work in progress. All the while thinking he has everyone fooled, perhaps even himself, he prood really an open book for anyone who cares enough to see to read.

Will he ever go home again? Coming of Age on the Trail Since I write historical fiction, many of these images are vintage photographs with a story galely their own. Every intricate and unique pattern. There was a bit of deus ex machina about the last quarter of the book and ex just happens to be in the same city in Europe that the MC is and imparts lasting wisdom at a critical juncturebut I was able to overlook this given that you hear stories like that all the time:
