The Englor Affair by JL Langley **Review**...

Nov 12, 2008 by

I first found out about gay romance author, J.L. Langley, from Lisabea of Nose in a Book. She could not stop praising about Langley’s sci-fi regency male romance called My Fair Captain. Because of her recommendation, I read My Fair Captain, and was blown away. I have read gay romance in the past, but the majority of them were just ho-hum reads. J.L. Langley writes scorching hot and passionate love stories between two men that are just as good as the straight romances I read. When I heard she was writing a sequel to My Fair Captain, I could barely contain my excitement. If The Englor Affair would be as well written and romantic as My Fair Captain, then J.L. would be one author I could always count on for wonderful romance regardless of...

Guess Who is Reading the Twilight Series?...

Nov 11, 2008 by

How cool is this? From MTV.com: President-Elect Obama Reads ‘Twilight,’ President-Elect Barack Obama truly has a full plate. Revitilize a sinking economy. Energize a nation. Rehabilitate America’s fragile standing in the world. Oh, and get through four “Twilight” books with his youngest daughter. Yes, according to the latest issue of US Weekly, Stephenie Meyer has a couple fans who will be moving into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in a couple months. The magazine reports that the President-Elect and his ten-year-old daughter Malia often bond over addictive book series, “They read all the Harry Potter books together and have moved on to the Twilight series.” I wonder if he is for “Team Edward” or “Team...

Steampunk. The Next Big Thing in Romance?...

Nov 10, 2008 by

“My object has been to depict the earth, and not the earth alone, but the universe, for I have sometimes taken my readers away from earth, in the novel. And I have tried at the same time to realize a very high ideal of beauty of style. It is said that there can’t be any style in a novel of adventure, but it isn’t true…” – Jules Verne Have you heard about Steampunk making a comeback in the publishing world? It seems that the next big thing in romance will be Steampunk Romance. So, the big question is, what is Steampunk? From Wikipedia: Steampunk is a subgenre of fantasy and speculative fiction that came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam...

NaNoWriMo Week 1: The Demon on My Shoulder...

Nov 9, 2008 by

It has been a week since NaNo has started and it has consumed my life. Everyday I update by NaNo word count on my side bar and it continues to grow. My daily word count I try to hit is 2,000 words. By Monday I should have over 15k written. The reason for my obsession to keep writing and trying to hit 50k by the end of November is due to a little demon who whispers continuously in my ear. The demon is named Valli Nyx and she is the star of my story. Valli Nyx was created back in October one sleepless night as I lay in bed trying to think of story for NaNo. I was ready to give up and forget about the whole thing, when I turned to my side...

Holy Cerberus’s Balls, Batman!...

Nov 8, 2008 by

For those who weren’t aware, Meljean Brook was over at the DIK blog (Desert Island Keeper Blog) for 3 days of island fun. Today was her last day, and she wrote a short story where Lillith arrives on the DIK island looking for Hugh. Some craziness ensues when she comes across Savi and Colin boinking like crazy in their hut, and Michael, the head Doyen, has been reduced to a feather dusting angel. *The woman to blame for reducing Michael to slave labor is Carolyn Jean, since she wouldn’t let me save him and keep his nice and cozy in my hut!* I was laughing so hard, that the first sip of coffee I took went all over my kitchen floor as I tried to not to spew all over my laptop in a...

Have Your Own Blog? You’re Old News...

Nov 7, 2008 by

I have to give a shot out to SarahNZ of Rain on the Roof blog, who brought this to my attention on twitter: Wired Magazine has an interesting article posted about personal blogs, and how they may be old news because they have to compete with such other website powerhouses such as The Huffington Post, which is considered to be the number one blog on the internet from Tchnorati. Jason Calacanis who owns Weblogs, Inc, and was quoted in the article, had this to say about blogs: “Blogging is simply too big, too impersonal, and lacks the intimacy that drew me to it.” With so many new type of blogs and websites popping up such as Twitter and Facebook, do the lesser known blogs, like myself, get lost in the shuffle? Again, the question...

Not The Real Vanity?

Nov 7, 2008 by

Kate Winslet is on the cover of this month’s Vanity Fair. There is a bit of controversy with Kate’s pictures in the magazine, because some think they have been airbrushed. She just looks so gorgeous in these pictures from the shoot. I think Kate is one of the most talented and beautiful actress in Hollywood. She is no stick, but a “real” woman who is proud of her body.You decide: Real or...
