I was… well trying to, you know…

This is me, last night.  Writing, a scene in which my lovers, Hake and Leif, have a sad, painful fight that tests their relationship and reveals more about their vulnerabilities and insecurities than they ever thought possible.  Aaaaaandddd I’m also checking twitter every now and then for updates. Hm… Rhys just posted a video… okay,… Read More

When in doubt… ask Bruce…

I’ve had some lovely days to write, and some really productive days doing research.  Unfortunately, they don’t really equal a whole lot of words written.  Suffice it to say I’m plugging along, and that I’ve had a little lull in the usual rattle and hum, and, well, that doesn’t really translate into spectacular blogfodder.  So,… Read More

Decisions, decisions, decisions…

   Okay, Cup o Porn is having their birthday bash this week, and there will be PLENTY of free fiction if you follow the link above.  My offering–both humble and completely safe for work (and can you believe that?  I’m asked to write for a blog called CUP OF PORN and what do I put out?  A… Read More

Yanno… stuff!

I feel bad, subjecting y’all to those hairy shins for so long (although, I must admit, I sorta like a tangle of hairy shins, visually that is!) so I’m going to blog about inconsequential weirdness for  a few, and try to find a pretty/shiny picture to distract you.  Theryago.  Thor (as played by Chris Hemsworth)….

So, uhm, what do you think?

Because, the thing is, the photographer decided to go with the prototypes and not the finished product.  So, umm, what do you think?

The depth of my political involvement…

Okay, so we saw Beauty and the Beast this weekend, and I was surprised. I mean, like a lot of parents, I’ve seen it ad infinitum on video, and you think, “I know the story, I’ll sleep through this.  Knitting.  Lots of knitting.”  But then, the opening chords hit the sound system, and I was… Read More

So… Close… To… Done…

My work in progress writing wise is called Sidecar.  It’s sort of a paean to the ’80s/’90’s, and I love it a lot.  It’s not as painful as Keeping Promise Rock, and I tried not to go camp on the details that would take us back to that time period.  I remember noticing change, but… Read More

Book Shit Goes On…

on January 11, 2012

Okay– some interesting thing going on in book land–but first, news from the children: Does anyone recognize the bucket of boat trash poncho?  Still fits but very differently. Squish:  Mom, that’s a graveyard. Me:  Yes, it’s a cemetery. Squish:  A cemetery is a graveyard.  If you keep falling apart, you’ll end up in a cemetery,… Read More

Does Anyone Have a Virtual Sherpa?

So, uhm, the m/m romance group at GoodReads had a ballot for some of their favorite romance reads this year.  My, uhm, name might have come up a time or two. I can not thank the moderators and supporters at GR enough.  I’m incredibly honored, ESPECIALLY because the company I’m keeping is so incredibly grand.  The other… Read More

I have to pee, it must be morning…

LOLOL… Okay, now that I’m done laughing at my own joke, I shall give you a brief report.  Basically?  The kids are back at school and I am writing myself STUPID.  STUPID I tell you– I am sleep deprived, cranky, and irrational, and the dragon is riding my back so hard I’ve got bloody stripes… Read More
