So I’ve been a super-bad blogger, and not in a hip way. So I thought I would ask some well-known authors in the m/m community what they are reading these days. (Not counting their own work as they edit.) This is the first five, more to follow.
Just click on any of the book covers to get to the publishers site if you want to pick it up.
JP’s recent read was:
JP’s latest release is:
Blaine’s last read was:
Blaine’s latest release is:
KZ doesn’t have a profile pic so this is from her last blog post. :-P
And to be difficult (just kidding) she has been in a movie watching groove so this is one of the last movies she watched. Wow, Meryl is young there.
KZ has a new release coming this summer (no cover/link yet), called Resurrection Man. (I’m totally going straight to hell now for posting this picture. I’ll save you all a spot at the swim up lava bar.)
Jordan’s latest read was:
Jordan’s latest release was:
And we end today with a little boy/girl love. :-) Treva also doesn’t have a proper avatar on GR so I’m using this. :-P
The last book Treva read:
Treva’s next book isn’t out until summer and she has no link/cover yet, but it will be called The Superstar’s Nanny. In my world, this is what he looks like, or maybe this is the superstar. Either way, freaking adorable.
So come back next week and find out what some more authors are reading and their new/coming releases.
Have a great weekend.
Do you like gay porn? Or pretty boys wearing plaid? Then you should check out my new Tumblr, the Plorn Blog. (We’ll see how long I keep it up, but I decided to start it as an off-shoot of my other Tumblr, Cookie Time.) Word of warning: The Plorn Blog will have more graphic material than my other one as a rule. Here are some samples:
They might be sweet and conservative…
Or a little bit of a tease….
Maybe discrete and artsy with just a touch of plaid in the accessories…
Or much more explicit…
They might be in colour… (with or without a u)
Or maybe in black and white…
And from time to time, may look like this.
Enjoy, and happy first day of spring.
So a few of us were having lunch together yesterday and started chatting about my upcoming move to Kuwait and having to purchase a car there.
A: Are you going to buy a boat?
Me: What? Why?
A: Apparently lots of people buy boats there.
Me: Why? That’s weird. It’s not Venice.
A: No, apparently since gas is so cheap, people buy boats.
Me: That’s weird. *puzzled looks from the rest of us* I’m not buying a boat. My house is inland.
M: Are you going to buy a camel?
Me: Ha! My daughter said I should buy one and keep it in the back yard. That would be cool.
A: Wait a minute. You give me hell for suggesting a boat and you don’t even blink when he asks if you’re going to buy a camel?
Me: *shrug* A camel makes sense.
No, I’m not buying a camel, or a boat. A car yes. :-)
So I sent her this picture I found on Tumblr:
The following on-line conversation ensued:
Her: Been there done that.
Me: Came shooting out of a giant ape’s heart tube?
Her: Mhmm. Don’t you know that’s what I did in bio?
Me: Was that before or after you fainted over a dead frog?
Her: Shut up.
Me: I’ll tell that story at your wedding some day.
Her: Which wedding?
Her: My first or fifth?
Me: Your first and third.
Me: The second will be a Britney Spears quickie, I won’t have time to write a speech.
Her: Its got to be long enough for me to make money off the thing
Me: Maybe he’ll be hot but penniless, you’ll come to your senses after a crazy night of drinking and get an annulment.
Somehow I don’t think our respect for the holy union of matrimony is all that sacred. At least she has a long term plan.
Now it’s the reverse. Seems the run on story requests has slowed down. There were plenty of choices this morning and I even had time to click around to find something that caught my interest.
So I am doing this for JustJen.
There is a dead body inside the trunk of my car…
I can’t believe this — I leave my car at the airport and when I return from my 3-day trip and am going to put my luggage, there is a dead body in it. It is the body of a senator’s son who has been kidnapped several days before. Suddenly, I have a homicide detective asking me questions and reporters trying to get a story from me and the senator making grief phone calls — and not to mention the kidnappers who somehow think I could help the Police Department break this case. How this is my life? I’m just a boring accountant. How the heck could I get out from this mess?
And how can I land a date with the brooding homicide detective who works this case? Uhm, yeah, so this last one, might be a wishful thinking but darn, he’s dreamy…
I imagine this would fall in the lighter or with humor contemporary story, despite the dead body. Please make the detective African American. The accountant should be white, nerdy guy. No insta-love, please.
So I’ve never written a mystery/police type story before. But I like doing things that lean to the humorous side so it should be fun. I’ll give a word of warning, this will NOT be a realistic police story, just as shows like Castle and Law & Order are not wholly realistic. It will be to let your imagine soar. :-)
Since I’ve been totally unmotivated to write lately…
Some of you may be aware that the m/m Goodreads group has once again launched their massive writing event. This year the title is Love’s Landscapes. They are doing it a bit different, releasing stories in batches at specific times. I’ve only got there once while there were still stories as they are snapped up quickly, but that’s okay. I’ll see if later in the game they need an author.
Anyway, I did submit a prompt which was chosen by Paula Coots.
Below is the picture I submitted and the prompt for the author. I’m looking forward to seeing what she does with it. I’m pretty easy-going and am letting her run with her imagination as to how it plays out. Of course it won’t be posted until summer-time so I have quite a wait to go.
