BL: Greetings fans! Welcome to this exclusive interview with another one of my snarky characters, Jimmy LaCosta from Something Fresh Served Hot part of my series with Rawiya, Something New on the Menu.
Jimmy: *sits and unbuttons coat*
BL: And here he is now. Sir, how are ya?
BL: That’s quite alright. So that we don’t give the readers too much info, tell me about the original Jimmy that we started with in the story. *crosses legs*
Jimmy: *moistens lips* Nice legs BL. Anyway, Jimmy, before was more of a homophobe who didn’t know much about gay men being in love. I had a lot of crazy ideals about what a man should be and well, I know I was wrong.
BL: Thanks for the compliment by the way. So you changed your way of thinking?
Jimmy: Yes I did and I’m happy to say for the better.
BL: Fabulous. Tell me about the character opposite you, Alex Seidling.
Jimmy: He’s the boss, he’s smart, funny, a real wise ass. Loves sports and music like me. Has great taste in food.
BL: Oh and in this story, he schools you doesn’t he?
Jimmy: Of yeah, totally. *smiles wide* I learned real quick how screwed up I am in my thinking.
BL: Great and would you say there is a moral to this story?
Jimmy: *sits back and strokes chin* Most likely, not to be afraid to change or try something new in any facet of your life. Life is too short to be a close minded prick. I wish more people would realize that.
BL: Ditto, and lastly, tell me one thing about Jimmy LaCosta you want everyone to know.
Jimmy: Well, all throughout my life I been a man who stands up to what they believe in and I’m stubborn but I also know when to say that I might’ve been wrong and that’s important when trying to grow up and mature right?
BL: Indeed it is Jimmy, thanks so much for being here today and give Alex a manly hug for me.
Jimmy: I sure will and please folks, go check out the book.
