Recently separated from his wife, a closeted man (username: 7mark8) discovers blogging to be a therapeutic outlet for his awkward and often comical homosexual shenanigans. His eroticism and unassuming candor attract quite an online following, and as more personal questions and information about his life and his children surface, he’ll discover friends, critics, and a heap of both good and bad advice.
But the last thing 7mark8 expects to find are cult-like followers who appear to be pushing him into a relationship with a charismatic but spiritual man. As he struggles to accept responsibility for his children along with his passion for men, his blog suddenly becomes a minefield of debate—but it will also become a source of strength as he learns to stand up for himself and his lifestyle.
Username: 7mark8 takes a usual approach to storytelling. Utilizing today’s heavy blog reading as the basis, this novel is entirely in blog format. Each entry is a blog by the author, 7mark8 (Mark being his name and 7.8 his dick size) and they range from sexual encounters to personal trials, even new relationships and problems in friendships. The blogs are then followed by comments from the various readers. This reads exactly like a blog that’s simply been put together and published. So in some ways those readers that are devoted to blogs may like the style while others may find the downside to blogging, it’s sometimes boring and dry.
