It's not every day you get to sign a literary rock star! But that's what we do at the Corvisiero Literary Agency. Today, we welcome Damon Suede!

I have to admit I squeed, danced the jig and looked a lot like Laura Linney in the movie Love Actually when Damon accepted representation for his upcoming titles.

His debut title, the male/male romance HOT HEAD has won several awards including 3rd place in the 2011 Goodreads Choice Awards where it was the only LGBT romance nominated and the only non-New York Times Bestseller. The contemporary romance novel has been in the Amazon LGBT Top 100 since its release in June, 2011, spending most of that time in the top 10!

He has big plans for 2013 and I'm completely STOKED to get to work with him! Talk about starting off the year with a big bang!

Damon Suede grew up out-n-proud deep in the anus of right-wing America, and escaped as soon as it was legal. He has lived all over: Houston, New York, London, Prague, with a few long stretches in New Orleans and Vienna. Along the way, he’s earned his crust as a model, a messenger, a promoter, a programmer, a sculptor, a singer, a stripper, a bookkeeper, a bartender, a techie, a teacher, a director... but writing has ever been his bread and butter. He has been happily partnered for over a decade with the most loving, handsome, shrewd, hilarious, noble man to walk this planet. 
Damon is a proud member of the Romance Writers of America and serves as the 2013 president of the Rainbow Romance Writers. Though new to gay romance fiction, Damon has been writing for print, stage, and screen for over two decades, which is both more and less glamorous than you might imagine. He's won some awards, but counts his blessings more often: his amazing friends, his demented family, his beautiful husband, his loyal fans, and his silly, stern, seductive Muse who keeps whispering in his ear, year after year. 
Damon would love to hear from you.... Get in touch with him at DamonSuede.com.
