Grayality Debuts on July 12! Here's What Some Readers Are Saying about It.

July 12 is almost here! I am super excited to share with you my debut novel, Grayality. Are you looking for a serious read? Are you the kind of reader who loves delving into deep, complex issues and enjoys novels that are character-driven over plot-driven? Then this novel is for you! Here's what some early reviewers are saying about Grayality.

Reviews from Net Galley:

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Full Text: REVIEW ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Grayality by Carey P W is the touching and compelling story of Pate Boone, a twenty-six year old transgender man and his best friend and ex-lover, Oakley Ogden. The two must find their niche in the rural Montana town that is not always open and accepting. Pate becomes enthralled with Maybelle to whom he has yet to reveal his transgender identity. Oakley, while supportive of his friend’s budding relationship, finds himself falling for Jody, a confident and gay drag queen, and struggles with accepting his own bisexuality. Is the love between Pate and Maybelle strong enough for her to accept him as he truly is? And can Oakley overcome his insecurities before he loses the love of his life?⠀ This is a beautifully written and emotionally charged novel that explores the idea of love being blind to gender. The story is authentic and honest as these two men struggle to find their identity in a judgmental and often unaccepting society. After pursuing a relationship myself with a transgender man whom I loved deeply, I can speak authoritatively of the author’s depiction of the struggles and conflicts involved. I wish a book like this had been around back then. ⠀

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Full Text: A super solid queer book. This book deals with a lot of emotions that occur as a person of queer identity, and I loved to see the various perspectives. It was a book I would have never expected to enjoy so much because the cover was just simple, but it really helps you understand how the words inside the book are complex and awesome. Seeing Pate grow, figure out who he is, and to see him find happiness was so amazing. I couldn’t love it more. It was also fantastic to see Oakley grow and flourish. Just a wonderful queer book, and I’m so glad it exists.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Full Text: The reason why I choose this book is that I am interested in gender. The main character is Pate Boone, he is a twenty-six years old man, also he is a transgender man. The book depicts the struggles of various characters and how each character grows through these struggles. What would you do if your old friend came out to you about his or her sexuality? This book makes you think deeply about current LGBT issues. I recommend you to read this book strongly!

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
