It's beginning to take shape.  This past week, I have read through the final proof--or is it a semi-final proof?--and approved the cover design.  Still plenty more details to work out, but the book should be available by mid-October.  Watch for it!

Oh, and...  Just so you know what it's about, here's the back cover blurb:
 “I am no Rake.” So says the anonymous English gentleman whose two hundred year-old journal falls into the hands of the prominent Los Angeles-based figure painter and avid blogger, David Soames… 

 … who is skeptical of the author’s protestation.  “No Rake…?”  Blog and journal soon begin to mirror each other in an exchange that echoes across the centuries.  As the potboiler romps exuberantly through 18th century Georgian boudoirs, it triggers the intimate memories of a 21st century man reflecting on youth—and age.  
The more things change, it seems, the more they stay the same.   At least when it comes to men and sex.  The Pilgrim’s Staff is an explicit, unabashed reflection on the nature of masculine sexuality…    

“Be prepared for a journey of discovery into men’s secret lives.  Peter Clothier is a brilliant and colorful writer who pulls no punches.  He explores his themes with vitality, spontaneity and curiosity.
