(PRWEB) April 18, 2017 -- Motivated by what he saw as a lack of characters he felt he could identify with and the stereotyping of gay men in the music industry, Brian Patrick Davis wrote “Songs About Boys” (published by Archway Publishing), revealing the entertainment industry through the eyes of Sidney McKenna, an aspiring, gay songwriter.
Twenty-four-year-old Sidney is a hopeless romantic with an appetite for independence. Thanks to his successful parents and a family friend, Sidney has the means to pursue his dream of becoming a force in the competitive, straight, male-dominated music industry that pumps through the heart of Atlanta. As Sidney attempts to prove himself to his peers, he is challenged with the scrutiny that accompanies life in the public eye and an unexpected romance with the power to forever change the course of his life and career.
“There hasn’t really been someone to write any contemporary, African American LGBT fiction since E. Lynn Harris,” Davis says, “and I think that it’s imperative to have more up-to-date, younger, more fresh stories told.”
