Coming Up This week August 26

596 Views

I hate to remind you (as if you didn’t already know) :) but Summer is almost over now that Labour Day is on the horizon.  Fall is probably my favourite season because of the leaves changing colour and the temperature getting cooler, but those of you who love the beach probably wish that summer would last forever. :) I’m sending you a bucket of sand for your inner child.

I read in one of our national newspapers a few days ago that the Damson Dene Hotel in England’s Lake District had replaced the Gideon Bible with Fifty Shades of Grey. I hope the world isn’t coming to an end. :eek: The owner, who bought the hotel from the Methodists a decade ago, said he was looking for a replacement for the bible for sometime and now he has what he thinks is a great alternative “because everybody is reading ‘Fifty Shades of Grey,’ we thought it would be a hospitable thing to do, to have this available for our guests, especially if some of them were a little bit shy about buying it because of its reputation.” :cool:  “Interestingly, we’ve had a lot of e-mails from the States, quoting scripture at us, presumably from the Bible Belt,” Mr. Denby told the Vancouver Sun.  If you would like to read some of the 674 comments on this article here’s a link http://tinyurl.com/cqp4cm4

So moving on…. Thanks to everyone who left questions for Kaje Harper. Some of you apparently are huge fans of this author and decided to post every question to which you would like answers. :lol:

Next week I’ll be asking you for questions for another interview – dueling writers Ethan Day and Geoff Knight. If you ever wondered how these two egos could set everything aside and write a book together, this is your chance to ask them how they did it without killing each other. To Catch a Fox will debut just before GRL. I can’t wait to find out how much fun they had.  This is the first line of the blurb “Sex. Murder. Blackmail. Revenge. Life in the Big Easy can be a real bitch”  :hysterics:

This week I’m writing a post on series books. We all love them, but why?

Thank you for continuing to vote in the poll: Readers: How Do You Like Your M/M Romance. The comments about the amount of sex you want in these books were quite illuminating. If you haven’t seen the post here is a link.

    Summer? What Summer? :(
    But this site makes it all a little bit better ;)
    Looking forward to a new week of m/m nommies

      Didn’t you have any summer weather Majken? It’s so hot here (32 C) that I’m wishing for Fall soon. I’ll send you a bucket of sand so you can pretend it’s still summer where you are.

      Thanks for compliment – I’m happy that the site brightens your days. :) We do our best to have some fun. :grin:

        Summer skipped us this time, we’ve had a day here and two days there, but mostly we’ve had cold and rain or rain and cold, that’s also how our Falls are, just with added storms, not really looking forward to that

        I live near a bay, I have plenty of sand, it’s just too cold to play with it :(
        But thanks for the offer :)

          You need to take holidays in the summer and visit places where it’s warm. Just don’t do what I did – don’t go to Vegas in the summer, it’s like a furnace. :eek: :shock:

    I’m with you Wave. I can’t wait for the fall. We’ve had a brutally hot and humid summer this year. I’m looking forward to your interview with Geoff Knight and Mr. Day. It’ll also be interesting to see how their styles blend in their new book. I’m quite sure Ethan was his sweet self while working with Geoff.

      Hi Tj

      I’m quite sure Ethan was his sweet self while working with Geoff.

      You think? Then you’re an eternal optimist. :lol:

      I can’t wait for the cooler weather because, as you said, this has been a brutal summer here as well (still is) and then I was foolish enough to go to Vegas in July. What was I thinking?

      1. Tj

        “and then I was foolish enough to go to Vegas in July. What was I thinking?”

        LOL I was just as crazy Wave. I went to Virginia in July! I felt like a movie vampire ready to burst into flames in that sun! :explode: When I came home, NY felt heavenly at a mere 90F!

        In my head I kept hearing that song from the movie “Were the World Mine” – ” We fairies that do run from the presence of the sun…”

        1. Wave Post author

          I never realized that Virginia was that much hotter than NY in the summer. I went there years ago but it was at least a couple of decades so I can’t remember the heat. *Another place to avoid in the summer.*

          Love the quote. :lol:

        2. Raine

          Tj, just had to say I’m listening at this very moment to soundtrack to Were the World Mine…..I adore this film and Tanner Cohen’s voice………..

          You guys have no idea how lucky you are that you can complain about the heat…..it’s been so wet and miserable in the North of the UK, while the Olympic weather in London looked good we were having floods! Moan, whine whinge…………..

          1. Wave Post author

            Sorry about the weather Raine. Would it help if I told you that its raining here today? However the rest of the week is supposed to be warm and sunny – maybe up to 30C. Of course on the weekend it might rain again. :lol: :wallbash:

            You should spend part of a summer in North America next year and you would hate the heat so much you’d hurry home to the floods. :eek:

  3. Teresa

    Now Wave you’re giving everyone a bad impression of our desert summers, lol. I know I’m looking forward to days under 100 and early mornings under 90 but it probably won’t happen until the end of October. Can’t wait to see what happens in your interview with Geoff and Ethan. I’ve been looking forward to their book ever since they read a bit at GRL last year.

    Owh hell, not more 50 shades of misery erh grey. Good grief. I like that sort of pokes people to read more erotic romances and hell they might even jump to m/m from there, but did it have the be Twilight fanfiction? :P

    Hmmm Fall is beautiful and I’m looking forward living in between the beach and a forest! Still would like a little bit more sun though!
