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…

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…

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….

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…

Gifs of the Day

In honour of Thimothée Chalomet and Armie Hammer in Call Me By Your Name. The most beautiful, enchanting movie I’ve seen in ages.

Craving – Friday Flash Fic., Feb. 15th

I was on the treadmill at the gym when I got an idea for this flash fiction prompt. I realized that these guys could easily be two characters from my Vampire erotica WIP, Diamond Dogs. Theo Matowski is a devoted lover to my protagonist, Gemini (a bisexual, androgynous female vampire who keeps Theo and his…

Personality – Monday Flash Fics, Jan. 22

The most interesting person in the square was someone wearing a white cashmere coat over a dark red blouse with a floppy red bow at the neck. Perched on their head was a matching red fedora-like hat. I thought the outfit showed a lot of personality and a certain unwillingness to dress to convention. The…

Monday Flash Fiction, Sept. 18

Where the fuck did all these birds come from? Here I am, trying to have a meditative sulk by the goddamn pond and I can’t even hear myself think. See, things just aren’t going very well right now. This t-shirt I just bought is way too fucking big, this stupid sweater’s still itchy, and my…
