White Balance – Chapter Nine

I woke up to the alarm on Jeremy’s phone at seven thirty. He had to meet Kureck at his studio at ten and wanted plenty of time to get ready. When I felt him start to move out from under the bedsheets I wrapped a hand around his wrist, keeping him close. “Wait a second.”…

New Cover!

A couple of weeks ago, my thirteen year-old daughter, Gillian, opined that she was bored and I suggested she draw something since she loves art and she is very talented at it. She suggested that maybe she could draw something for one of my book covers. Most of my books already have book covers arranged…

Series Review – Oliver and Jack by Christina E. Pilz

   I just finished the sixth and final book in the Oliver and Jack series by Christina E. Pilz and am now in mourning that the story is complete. Sometimes, in a lengthy series, the final books can seem lacklustre and underwhelming. Even if the writing continues on a level of excellence, the story can…

Book Review: Fagin’s Boy by Christina E. Pilz

First, I must confess to putting off reading Fagin’s Boy, which I downloaded for free from Amazon several weeks ago, because I read a lot of historical literature like Dickens, George Eliot and Charlotte Bronte, and I was really worried that this book would not live up to my expectations of it. I’ve always loved…

Call Me By Your Name – A Return to Eden?

*Contains spoilers* I have watched this film three times now, and it gets better at each viewing. Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me By Your Name is a feast for the senses – an erotic buffet filled to the brim with symbolism, intellect and culture. But most of all, innocence. Call Me By Your Name is the…

Jingle Balls – Friday Flash Fic., March 16

Dear Lord, it was sweltering outside. How was I supposed to get in the Christmas spirit surrounded by palm trees, surfers and ancient volcanoes? I’d jumped at the opportunity to move to Hawaii when the possibility of a transfer had come up within the company. It had been absolutely amazing for the first six months…

RTC Prize Pack Raffle

Last year at the Romancing the Capital Convention in Kanata, Ontario, I raffled off a hard copy of Michael Stoke’s book Masculinity. To participate, attendees had to give me their email address in person. I had such a blast meeting people who wanted to sign up for the draw that I’m giving away another wonderful prize…

Scrabble – Nathan’s Flash Fic Challenge for March

My buddy, Nathan, runs a Flash Fiction challenge each month. He picks randomly from a selection of genres, objects, and locations and the results for March were: a Romance, with a VHS cassette, in a fire watch tower. So I kind of played fast and loose with those guidelines because that’s how I roll. Also,…

Baby Talk – Friday Flash Fic, March 9th

“Thats … him?” Cade nodded with a smug smile on his face. “Yep. That’s Mark. With little Jade.” “Can the dog walk or is it missing its legs?” I asked. Cade blinked and screwed up his forehead. “Huh?” ”He’s carrying his dog in a backpack. Don’t you think that’s a little … precious?” Cade shrugged….

Book Review – Confessions: Robbie, by Ella Frank

Confessions: Robbie, an all new tantalizing contemporary MMM Romance by Ella Frank is coming March 8th! Blurb: Relationships are complex. Love ever-changing. And when it comes to rules of the heart, they were made to be broken… That’s what Robert Antonio Bianchi was telling himself, anyway. Otherwise, he really had no excuse for what—or who—he’d done. No excuse, except…
