GRL 2015 Day 1

Hello from sunny San Diego! The first day was a bit chaotic and stressful for me, but I found a fabulous bunch of folks who made me feel welcome and included. Thank you Mischyjo, Jennifer Pher, Sandy, Jewel, Dani, Todd, Richard, John, Doc Heather and Alissa. I caved early, just like the old lady I am, and and plan to sleep a solid 8 hours. After I read, of course.

GRL 2015 Excitement

I am unashamed to say I am a serious fangirl for M/M Romance authors and am out-of-my-skin excited for GayRomLit 2015 which starts on October 14 in California. In my excitement, I downloaded the covers of my favorite books from authors I have read that will be attending. I uploaded them below to share the love! Yep, I’m that much of a geek!

William Neale – A Tribute

It’s a sad commentary that we rarely pay tribute to someone except when he or she has passed away, and this is the situation for me with William Neale. I had tentatively scheduled an interview with him for the fall of this year (I usually plan my interview schedule 3 – 6 months in advance) and I was going to contact him about it in August. Unfortunately, that interview will…

M/M Sports Fans: Would you like to beta for an author?

M/M Sports Fans: Would you like to beta for an author?

The post on Men in Sports: Why Are They Almost Non Existent in M/M linked here was incredibly popular and brought a number of sports fans out of the closet. 🙂 Some of the issues that emerged from the comments were that many female authors were not comfortable writing sports themed stories because they had never been involved in competitive sports in their formative years or had family members and close friends who…

Readers’ Favourite YAOI Books

A few weeks ago Tam did a post about YAOI here.

So here is Ingrid’s first attempt, with Tam’s help,  at a list of Readers’ Favourite YAOI Books. This list…

Wowie Yaoi

Wowie Yaoi

Okay, it’s not quite pronounced the same. It’s pronounced ya-oh-ee. But if you say it fast it’s close. What is it you ask? Yaoi is a Japanese graphic form of m/m romance, often referred to as Boy Love or BL. Think comic books with more nekkidness. 🙂

We Remember ……

all of our soldiers who gave their lives for us.  I wish to salute all of those men and women who died for their countries, regardless of race, sexual orientation or sex. War and death in battle do not discriminate. Bravery does not discriminate. We salute all of our soldiers who fought for peace. While Remembrance Day salutes initially those who died in WW1 which ended November 11, 1918, 91 years…
