Because Kade is fabulous, he has this awesome story to offer you, AND a terrific interview. I had such an amazing time coming up with these questions. So, here you go, everyone. I give to you Proud Heart:
Title: Proud Heart: A Chance & Bradley Short (Chance of Heart 1.5)
Author: Kade Boehme
Cover Artist: Allison Cassatta
Publication Date: June 16, 2015
After three years together and a fair share of family drama, Bradley and Chance are feeling the strain of trying to keep their business afloat, their families happy, and plan their wedding. Chance is headed to an LGBT charity horse show in L.A. just in time for Pride, but Bradley can’t pull himself away from overworking and his insecurities.
Bradley gets it together, though, and their brief time in L.A. may be just what they need to remind themselves how much they matter to each other.
A Chance & Bradley Pride Month Short. 9k words that include an insecure accountant, his frisky cowboy fiancé, and a pair of riding chaps.

Frustrating. Haha. I always think women sound like they have to work harder to get off than men, which it looks like when I see porn b/c it’s like “dude that’d be easier if you had a dick.” Haha. If that makes sense? Like as a dude, I get that penetration AND it’s pretty much a guarantee I’m gonna get off. When I saw statistics from Planned Parenthood that only 61% of women 18-24 had an orgasm the last time they had sex I was baffled. I can’t remember a time I hadn’t. BUT from what I hear, women have longer orgasms, so I’d say that’s another thing I’d imagine sex as for a woman. Intense.
I think the day I realized the lease was in my name, all the bills were mine, there was no one to bail me out if I was going to be homeless, and I could get porn subscriptions without getting grounded.
Still has to be when I was outed and I just decided NOT to deny it. I did the first time, when I was 14. I kinda let it roll off because they were SO mad. But the second time, when I was 18, even when they said I’d have to leave, I did it. I said fuck it, I can’t do that again. God knows where I’d’ve ended up if I’d gone with their crazy plans. That day, I was loaded into a car with anything I could take, and I left and while it wasn’t my choice completely, I’d say choosing to at least acknowledge it and say I was going to live the status-quo any more is still the biggest and best change I ever made for myself, even if it led to lots of years of struggle afterwards.
Wow. That’s tough. I’ll go with a silly answer for this and say Delaware… because really? It takes an hour to drive through the whole state… they can’t just combine with someone else?In your opinion… Is beauty purely subjective or can someone be wrong about whether something is beautiful?
Damn. Good question. Hm. I’d have to say it’s subjective. Beauty isn’t quantifiable, there’s no way to measure it. I think some things are universally beautiful—sunset, the night sky, etc—but measuring physical beauty is impossible as it’s different across the world, whether you’re talking people or fashion, or simple things like colors on logos. Beauty is a matter of individual taste.
Phoebe Buffet from Friends. Just because I’d love to be that blissfully ditzy. And she’s fabulous.
Mom, I’d want Judith Light all the way. She’s fabulous. She’s an amazing actress, philanthropist, and LGBT activist. She’s one of my biggest Sheroes ever. Ever.
As for celeb dad? Jon Stewart, hands down.

I’m alone most of the time, haha, so this is a hard one to answer. I live alone and work from home so I guess ALL my thoughts are alone, mostly. I think about what to write next. Money and savings are a big thing I think about. I spend at least 3 hours of my day bitching to myself about politics haha.
I’d like to think so. I was raised in the church so I still have my southern boy hang ups. Heaven & Hell, etc. I admire atheists for A) not being completely horrified that we simply cease in the end, and B) their guidance of themselves in morality and being good because that’s what you do as humans because I know even I still find myself being led by biblical standards and thoughts when I ask if something it right or wrong. But I CAN’T believe we just cease. I can’t.
I’d most love to go back and visit times when homosexuality wasn’t shunned in the past, just to see what that was like. But I’d never stay. I’m much too modern to live back then. I’d say it’d be interesting to go into the future and see what steps happen as far as LGBT rights go, but living it now is such an overwhelming and uplifting experience. I’d hate to go forward and find out we lapse in 10 years and the whole thing falls apart in 50.
I think (aside from your clinical issues with depression etc) as far as my experience goes, happiness is a choice. I’ve gone through a lot of garbage and been hurt or disappointed by a lot of people, but I’ve also hurt and disappointed people myself. The human spirit is nothing if not resilient so I do think at a certain point you gotta CHOOSE to be happy. It won’t happen overnight, but it’s about what works for you even if it’s getting out of bed, putting on a Britney song, and dancing in your underwear for an hour every morning. You can live in the past, fear the future, guard yourself against the present… Or you can just do you.
If he wasn’t married, Matt Bomer (haha Boehme and Bomer. Wouldn’t that be a fun law firm?) Cheyenne Jackson (it’s the eyes) and I’ll be totally cliché and say Chris Evans because…why not?
Well, I kept thinking too clinically, worrying about lack of things or remembering writing something so I couldn’t get lost in it. It was too much like work to enjoy.
