A Cry for Help From One Artist to Another


As most of you know I am currently working on a new book titled The Pink Canary. No, it is not about a pink  canary and no it is not a love story.  What I will tell you is it is filled with crime scenes, twists and turns and other off the wall humor that only the voices in my head can produce.  I am working with my best friend who is gay and one of the funniest people I know, however, I need more input from the gay community especially those of you who perform in drag. You see the plot revolves around a Drag Queen club and its owner in Key West.

When I start a project and I am not proficient in the subject matter I do alot of research. The reason is simple the story has to be believable, if not then it will not be interesting to the reader. There are nuances that make the story – nuances that I am not familiar with  for instance name brand gowns, price range, name brand makeup, name brand shoes, length of time it takes to put on makeup for a show, favorite music artists that performers sing the most.

I have done some research, but I don’t think it is quite enough. If there is anyone out there who is willing to give me a hand here, of course you will be recognized in my acknowledgments.  My goal is to reach a new audience and in order to do that I have to understand the who, what, when, where and how. I want to know all I can about the Drag Queen entertainment world, I want my readers to read the book, enjoy the book and feel as if they are in the book.

I do know that not all Drag Queens are gay that some of them are just performers. I also know that as with all performers this is a craft and one that must be perfected. So that being said, if there are any of you out there who are willing to help a girl out, I would be forever in your debt.
