I’ve been a huge fan of J. R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series practically from the beginning. She may have been on book 2 or 3 when i discovered them. And while i think Laurell K. Hamilton’s Jean Claude of the Anita Blake series is the best vampire ever set to paper (i like my vamps pretty and complex), i think the BDB is the best series of vampire stories yet created, probably even including the marvelous Charlaine Harris.
First, i should say i’m not a book reviewer, i’m a writer. I won’t be keeping up on all the new releases and giving you a balanced critique. Instead, from time-to-time i’ll share one of my favorite books (or maybe one i don’t like and think you could skip). Many of my favorites will be m/m contemporary because that’s what i like to write and read, but some paranormal will slip in and an occasional historical. So these are just a writer’s comments.
If you haven’t yet seen the Durex condom commercial, this is your chance. Brilliant!
Anyone who reads the blog is going to have to endure (or enjoy) hearing about Adam Lambert. I think the young pop/rock star is sexy, gorgeous, bright and very talented. Love of Adam dragged me out to buy the first CD i’d purchased in ages and my iPod is stuffed with Lambert music.
I had lunch yesterday with my longtime friend, writer Suzanne Forster, author of The Private Concierge, Tease, The Lonely Girls Club, Decadent and more great books than i can name. I’m hoping to post an interview with Suzanne one day soon, but meanwhile take a look at:
Check out this very unique love story. : )
People ask how i got interested in writing erotic romance. The answer is simple. Jet Mykles. Somehow, about two years ago, i found one of her Dark Elves books on Amazon and was hooked. But the real turning point for me was when i ordered Heaven Sent. I had never read a m/m (that’s male/male for the uninitiated) romance and was actually quite nervous about it which makes me laugh now. But, oh my, one venture into Jet’s “over-the-top” guys and i was a goner. I read everything she’d written and continue to wait with all her fans for the next book or story.
If you’re a Twilight fan, you probably already know that you can go to http://www.stepheniemeyer.com and read the new Eclipse novella, The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner for FREE! While there, you can also contribute to the Red Cross.
