Expletives Not Deleted - Essay Collection
Burgeoning curmudgeon Leon Acord takes on current events (MAGA, cancel culture), modern-day life (precocious parents, technology), pop culture (theatre critics, closeted actors), and more in his new collection of bitchy yet bubbly essays, all written in the same acerbic voice that made his memoir SUB-LEBRITY a five-star Amazon bestseller.

SUB-LEBRITY* The Queer Life of a Show-Biz Footnote - Memoir
From Indiana farm boy to San Francisco queer-theatre veteran ... from creator/star of the seminal gay web TV series Old Dogs & New Tricks to his infamous role as Cindy Brady's political arch-enemy...
Actor Leon Acord's story, told in his singular, cheeky voice, is “like any other Hollywood memoir...the only difference is, I'm not famous!”
"A ribald romp the show-biz industry ... Acord's own proclivity for trouble means that his accounts can be racy, offensive (to some), forthright, and satisfyingly political" Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review

Carved in Stone - The Play by Jeffrey Hartgraves
Lauded by critics in Los Angeles and San Francisco, Jeffrey Hartgraves' Carved in Stone is the hilarious & thought-provoking story of recently deceased young author Quentin Tott, as he awakens in an afterlife lounge populated by Truman Capote, Quentin Crisp, Tennessee Williams and Oscar Wilde.
Includes a foreword by director John Fisher, a postscript by "Quentin Crisp" actor Leon Acord, and photos from both San Francisco and Los Angeles productions.
"This show is hilarious! Packed with witticisms that are downright lapidary"
"More bitchy gay wit and sophisticated repartee than a Noel Coward festival capped off with a screening of All About Eve"
