I don't know why, but I feel very emotional after reading the article on Jamie Hubley . I haven't posted in months and this story made me want to write something. This kid was Sam in so many ways and reading his story was like seeing what could have happened to Sam. I know Sam isn't real and he's just a character in one of my stories, but today he seems like so much more. I think I'm going to try to give away a few copies of Starving for Love. Maybe I'll even autograph them and include a note of encouragement or something. People like Jamie need to know Sam. I know some people will say that Sam is too dark of a character and he might depress the person even more, but I don't think so. What's better than knowing that other people feel exactly the same way that you do? What's better than following that person as they reach rock bottom and slowly try to get better?
I don't know what I'm going to do but I feel compelled to act and sharing Sam's story is all I have to offer.
