Out Now: MY SOLDIER, MY WAR: A Gay Romance Novel by Joe Filippone

This is an honest-and-true treat for anyone who enjoys now just a queer erotic treat but a brilliant work of touching fiction: My Solider, My War by Joe Filippone is a memorable read and then some!

Was their passion for each other strong enough to survive the wounds of war?
Horror writer Scott Wallace's husband Kristian went off to Iraq to fight, only to return, after two harrowing years, with PTSD. The strength of Scott and Kristian's marriage was tested, but neither of them gave up on the other.
Then, Kristian is deployed once again and killed by a suicide bomber.
While grieving the death of his husband, Scott meets Henrik Hilberg—Kristian's best friend since kindergarten—and the two become friends, bonding over the loss of a loved one. But while Scott deals with depression and writer's block, he finds himself turning to Henrik—first for consolation and then, more and more often, for the pleasure of his company.
After all Scott's been through, can he remain true to Kristian's memory while letting himself live—and love—in the present?
New, expanded edition which tells much more of Scott and Henrik's story.
