Which came first, the book or the movie? Usually, it’s the book. However, Guest House Books made the film first and has now written the book.
Guest House Books is the new publishing arm of Guest House Films, known worldwide for its production and distribution of gay-themed films. With the launch of Guest House Books, the company will let customers enhance their movie-going experience with novelizations of select titles and screenplays of the company’s productions. In addition, Guest House Books plans to publish gay-themed books from a variety of authors.
All of the Guest House Films screenplays will soon be available to buy and read on your Kindle, iPad, or other e-reader device.
Make the Yuletide Gay
Olaf “Gunn” Gunnunderson is an out-and-proud college student with a secret–his parents (the bubbly Anya and the perpetually stoned Sven) still don’t know that he’s gay. So when his boyfriend, Nathan Stanford, shows up unannounced at the Gunnunderson house over Christmas break, Gunn finds himself juggling his reality with the lies he has told his family for years. Will the truth come out before Gunn does?
People have enjoyed the film Make The Yuletide Gay for years. Now, with the publication of this novel, fans can learn more about the Gunnunderson, Stanford, and Mancuso families, gain more insight into Gunn’s journey over that fateful holiday week, and even find out what happens afterward.
Bonus! Included in this book is a new short story, When Olaf Met Nathan, which details the first meeting between the two college freshmen, randomly assigned as roommates but destined to become much more.
Green Writers Press is a Vermont-based global publisher founded by writer and environmental activist, Dede Cummings (from Brattleboro, Vermont), to incorporate and facilitate the gift of words to help foster a sustainable environment.
Printing on demand (POD) and using only FSC-certified paper printed at their Vermont printer, Springfield Printing Corporation, and at their Tennessee printer, Lightning Source, they have a commitment to preserve and protect the Earth’s natural resources.
A percentage of the proceeds is donated to the environmental activist group, www.350.org. A percentage of profits goes to Vermont-based environmental organizations. Books are printed with soy-based inks on paper made from pulp that comes from post-consumer waste paper. They are exploring printing on organic hemp (from Canada), kenaf, and arundo donax (similar to bamboo). The goal is to never use pulp made from virgin timber fiber for paper used to print books.
Green Writers Press publishes adult fiction and non-fiction, poetry, and children’s books.
