The Whore of Harpo

Anonymous's picture

Well I sent out a copy of Orphan's Quest to Oprah today along with a letter telling her all about my battle with HIV and how the book came ultimately came about. I feel like a total publicity whore now, trading off my illness to try and get some attention. But I figure since there are so few upsides to having a chronic illness, you might as well take advantage of the few opportunities you have to turn it into a plus. Besides, if it furthers my goal of getting more GLBT fiction out there into the world, then the ends will have justified the means. And if I should wind up being some sort of role model for other people dealing with HIV, that would be a good thing, right?

hey man

if anyone's a publicity whore, its OPRAH. I mean she's a kewl and smart lady and all... but just cuz her magazine is called "Oprah", why does she have to be on the cover of it EVERY month? lol. and Harpo, the name of her production company, is just her name spelled backwards. shes like, "it's all about ME!!!"
XD

Just to clarify my post lest

Just to clarify my post lest anyone misunderstand, "The Whore of Harpo" refers to me, not Oprah. One can argue the same thing about her I suppose, but as I am in the process of asking her for a favor, I'm not going to be one of those people. lol.
