Book of Days: what can readers expect from Latter Days, the book? Author T. Fabris gives a quick preview.

It's not every day that a gay movie gets a novelization, but Latter Days has a special luster thanks to writer-director C. Jay Cox, who proved he could wow us big-time with his script for the 2002 Reese Witherspoon hit film Sweet Home Alabama. But how do you capture that fizzy mix of romance, religious angst, and body heat that makes Latter Days the movie so much fun?

"C. Jay Cox already put together a terrific story," says T. Fabris, who took on the duty of book adapter for Alyson Publications, which is owned by the company that publishes this magazine. "Turning Latter Days into a novel was as easy as doing a paint-by-number picture--if you add hot guy-on-guy love scenes." Fans can look for Latter Days the book in stores for April 2004.
