Actor and writer Charlie David, probably best known for his role as Toby in the LGBT horror series Dante’s Cove, is set to be in Vancouver to celebrate the release of his new novel, Boy Midflight. The cover of Charlie’s new book features Joel and Reece, winners of the 2009 Vancouver’s Next Gay Top Model Cover Award.
On Wednesday, January 27th, 2010 David will be at Little Sisters Book & Art Emporium from 7-8pm to not only read some of his favourite passages from the book but will also be available for a meet and greet to sign his book and any of his DVDs including Dante’s Cove, his travel series Bump, and the films Mulligans, A Four Letter Word, Kiss the Bride.
In addition to David’s reading, Producer Terry Costa will provide a sneak peak into the 2010 Gay Top Model competition, as he annouces the finalists that will create the show for this season.
David will also talk about his new novel, Shadowlands (to be released Fall 2010) where one of the lucky Gay Top Model 2010 finalists will be selected as the cover boy.

At 19, Ashley seemed to have everything: looks, talent, and even a girlfriend. What more could a young man want? But soon he has to come to terms with his sexuality and the possible implications for his career in the public eye as a male model. He begins dating Chris, but isn’t sure he’s head over heels in love. It’s not the knight-in-shining-armor feeling he thought it would be. Then Ashley gets the chance to leave his hometown in Canada to visit sunny California for a big modeling job. There he meets a kind slightly older man who takes his breath away. But is Ashley ready for real love or it is just infatuation? Will he go back to his comfortable life with Chris or explore this new-found attraction?
Boy Midflight is an intimate portrait of young love; a time when life seems simultaneously limitless and daunting. This is a sinfully delicious story, like stealing your best friend’s journal and slowly unraveling a secret life you never imagined.
