Monte Hytche, Thick & Sexy Collision Model Contest Winner
It's no secret that my publisher, Tim'm West, is a King chaser or that I am what some may euphemistically refer to as "a man of size," likewise the men who people my stories come in a variety of average, thick and even underdeveloped sizes, men rarely seen in contemporary Black gay literature. On those occasions when the traditionally muscled body boy shows up in my pages, it is for commentary and purpose, not eye candy. As a thick Black orologi man who feels it's important to see myself affirmatively reflected in my culture, I informed my publisher that the original model selected for my book cover, while beautiful, had been given plenty of forums on my brothers' covers. My publisher carnivorously agreed: it was time for something meatier. But who?
Monte Hytche, that's who! That's Monte on the new cover of Collisions: A Collection of Intersections. As you can see from his photo, he's a good looking brother above the neck as well. A special thanks to all contestants who entered.
