Dear Readers:

Many of you who read this blog know my true identity. Some of you have figured it out and asked. Others I have told. But due to recent events I must reveal to all of you the honest truth.

As you know, I have been writing under a pseudonym but what you probably don’t realize is that I operate concurrent blogs. I am the author of both and

Yes the blogger behind both “The Journey of a Gay Mormon Boy” and “The Wandering Delusions of a Gay Mormon Boy” is the same person. What's more is that both of these blogs have been a social experiment. Last June, in an attempt to better my writing and understand the gay community I took up an alter ego, as I did research for my new project. I became a “Gay Mormon Boy” and created a work of pure fiction, testing new characters and ideas with an online audience.

I read many stories of angst and anguish that I hadn’t thought about before this experiment. They helped me craft my story that has hooked many readers. After a few months of writing one blog I knew that I had to have a companion story. Something raw and gritty. In order for people to believe Beloved Boyd I included a disclaimer of honesty so people would disassociate the two blogs.

I decided to include the second blog for several reasons, but mostly because I work well with two heroes in one long tale as is the case with my most famous work and as these the two blogs intersect and become one. I am certain that you are familiar with my other works as I see them discussed across the Moho blogosphere, and hope that as you read this new blog (starting tomorrow at you'll enjoy the adventures of GMB and Boyd, my new Jacob and Edward.


Stephenie Meyer

Hahaha, genuis GMB. At first I thought this was real when I saw the picture at the bottom. I didnt know what S. Meyer looks like so I thought it was you coming out as just some random woman.

The funniest thing is that I just got done watching 'New Moon' at my friends house before I came home and logged on and saw this.

Okay, you've left me confused!! Is this some April's Fools Prank? :p

Q said...

April Fools indeed - Well played GMB.

C.J. said...

LOL!!! Well played. Truly awesome.

Laurent said...

Nice. Now, put that pen into gear and write your next novel: Beloved, the Gay Mormon Boy(d) Story.

Andy said...

GMB, I TOTALLY believed this! Wow. I feel way cheated! If only Stephanie Meyer was Boyd and GMB...jk. This was classic! I still can't stop laughing!

Ok I'm going to write down my reactions BEFORE I read the rest of this post and will not even look at the comments.

I'm going to call April Fools joke right now

I was right lol but I was actually starting to doubt myself. The Moho blog thing kind of confirmed it

You got me. I was getting angry and feeling used, then read the comments and realized what day it was yesterday.

@everyone: would you believe that someone took this seriously enough to send me an F*** You! email? I am not in fact Stephenie Meyer.

@Phunk Factor: Yeah. April Fools is fun. :)

@Konrad: Boyd deserves more of the credit here. We had fun writing it.

@Q, C.J., and Original Mohomie: Thanks

@LDS Brother: I like that title!

@Andy Foree: I hate to toot my own horn, but I think, I'd do a better job.

@Ethan: You're a smart one. :)

@green and purple: I'm glad it was ridiculous and well-written enough to stir some emotions. Haha. I hope you enjoyed in the end.
