White Balance – Chapter Eight

White Balance – Part One (Chapters 1-6) White Balance – Chapter Seven “Anything?” “Anything Martin. I’m yours. But could it at least involve your mouth on my dick for a tiny part of it?” I smiled, feeling very relaxed and relieved after my outburst and subsequent orgasm. “There’s nothing tiny about that option.” “Hardy har….

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…

One-Night-Stand – Friday Flash Fic., March 2nd

He stood looking out the glass walls at the small backyard. Concrete walls surrounded the tiny space but for a large cutout at the side that let in the bright morning sunshine and gave a soft blue tint to the stone. Lionel could see greenery and remembered the lush surroundings of the place that he’d…

Is It March Already?

Whew, is it really March??? Winter flew by incredibly fast this year! We just celebrated my son’s 11th birthday and spring weather is upon us a little early. I know that the snow and cold will make a reappearance before this month is over but I’m really enjoying it right now. I only have one…

Cover Reveal – Confessions, Robbie, by Ella Frank

This fall I read the Temptations series by Ella Frank and really fell in love with her characters and writing style. I agreed to be part of a cover reveal blitz for her next book which is the beginning of a brand new series called Confessions. The first book, Robbie, featuring a minor character from…
