Coming Up This Week September 2

737 Views

I love long weekends, especially when I can leave this pop stand (which is not the case this particular holiday because the airlines refused to give me a free return flight). :lol:  What is this world coming to when frequent flyers who have exhausted their points can’t get a free flight on an airline? Don’t they want me as a passenger anymore ‘cos I have no money? :???:  But enough about me, how is your weekend going so far?

Since this is a short week I don’t have anything special planned on the site but we do have lots of reviews and free books as usual. I’m still working on a couple of posts and one of them is about serial books. Do you follow a lot of serials? Why? Do you have beefs about serials in general? My biggest beef is when a female character is inserted as a lead in a M/M serial because the author “had to follow her muse.” :(

Yesterday I asked you for questions for my interview with Ethan Day and Geoff Knight, our intrepid warriors who wrote a book together called To Catch a Fox. I’m expecting some really invasive questions such as “Geoff, is it true that you gave Ethan a bloody nose because he wanted the hero to be a little twink and you wanted someone who resembled the guys in your Riddle of the Sands/Cross of Sins series?” :)

On the weekend the following reviews were posted: Cartography for Beginners by Jenna Jones reviewed by Jeayci; Lashings of Sauce edited by Josephine Myles reviewed by Cryselle; Out of the Ashes by Olivia Duncan Craig reviewed by Sirius; Love, Hypothetically by Anne Tenino reviewed by Raine; A Foreign Range by Andrew Grey reviewed by Sammy; and I reviewed But My Boyfriend Is by K.A. Mitchell. All of the reviews are linked in case you haven’t seen them. Our Recommended Reads for August was also posted on the weekend by Aunt Lynn.

Two weeks ago I wrote a post asking this question: Readers: How Do You Like Your M/M Romances. The response was great but I would like to urge those of you who haven’t voted to please do so as this would give your favourite authors an idea of your likes/dislikes. They won’t know unless you tell them. Also please feel free to continue commenting on the post. I welcome all comments even those that disagree violently with my views as long as you’re polite and don’t throw things at me. :lol: :lol:

I would like to give authors or readers an opportunity to write the occasional guest post on the site. Of course we can’t accommodate everyone but if you have a topic that you think would be of general interest please email me or Aunt Lynn (she’s our in-house editor) with the following subject heading: “Guest Post.”

The Friday Guys have decided not to go on strike for more pay so I think they are going to be here on the weekend, despite their grumbling. I’m sorry but I can’t accommodate your requests (sorry Jeffrey) for pictures with full frontal. Despite what some of you thought, this is not that kind of site. :hysterics:

Till next week, that’s a wrap.

    Hey, I didn’t request full frontal… :shock: I wouldn’t complain but I didn’t ask… :grin: Sometimes a little mystery can be really hot… Just because I notice when the mystery is at a minimum and stuff is peeking out doesn’t mean I’ve asked for no mystery… :lol: After all, I have a reputation to protect… :hysterics: (the last line was just for you Wave. Can’t wait to see your reply. :grin: )

      I really would like to give you what you have asked for on occasion, but I must point out that there are limits to what I can do to accommodate your prurient tastes. :blush: You did ask for more than just a “neck” peeking out of you know where but if I did do so to scratch your itch then we would have porn on the site, not erotic art. :lol:

      As for your reputation, what are you talking about, specifically? Anyone who knows the names of every guy who has ever posed on a porn site should not be too quick to mention reputation, if you get my drift. One might wonder how you acquired said knowledge. :twisted: :censorship:

      1. Jeffrey

        So, Michaelangelo was accommodating prurient tastes when he sculpted David? As were all of those other artists who painted and sculpted male full-frontal? :grin: Beauty is beauty and your Friday guys are sure beauties. :bravo: (Not really arguing with you. :smile: I agree with your intentions.)

        And I said I have a reputation to protect. I didn’t say it was a good one. :hysterics: At least not here.

        1. Wave Post author

          Have you seen a picture of David lately? One of my friends was in Florence recently and sent me a picture of the statue (I wonder why) :grin: and his “equipment” seems to have lost some of its lustre so I could probably have him as a Friday Guy. :twisted:

          You’re absolutely right – you do have a reputation to protect.

          I need some new sites for my Friday Guys pictures because one of the best ones has closed down. Maybe you could email me some links, but no porn sites. :lol:

  2. Sirius

    Already preordered Second hand, can’t wait to read it and to hear what you thought. Third you die is out?! Do tell.

    And didn’t I just respond to jeayci’s review of Cartography for Beginners? Cryselle is doing another one? :)

    1. Wave Post author

      I just wanted to see if you would notice that I made a mistake with the name of the reviewer. :lol: Thanks for pointing that out.

      Third You Die isn’t out until late September/early October (the publisher keeps giving me different release dates) but you can pre-order.

          Don’t be so impatient. :) Late September is only a few weeks away. The good thing is that you can pre-order this book.

        1. Wave Post author

          I could have reviewed this book a month ago (that’s how long I’ve had it) but I didn’t want you to kill me. :) Be patient.

          1. Sirius

            Patience is not the virtue I possess. But I guess I can look at it as character building exercise. :hurrah:

            1. Wave Post author

              That’s a good attitude. :) In consideration of your feelings I won’t review the book until the last day of the week (or maybe even next week) so that by then you only have 3 weeks to wait. See how good I am to you? :grin:

    Ooooh, there are some good freebies and reviews coming up this week. Plus spring has sprung here in Oz, the weather is fine, and my footy team’s in the finals. :girl: :bananadancer:

    1. Wave Post author

      Hey Gaye
      How are you babe? You should boast to Sean Kennedy about your footy team being in the finals because his team, Brisbane, is always dead last. :lol:

      There really are some great giveaways this week and the reviews are nothing to sneer at either. Maybe you will buy something after reading the reviews. :grin:

      Ah spring! Soon it will be fall here and all the heat will fly away till next year.

      BTW I read on the Internet that Tasmania approved same sex marriage. That’s great news. :cool:

      1. Gaycrow

        Oooh, I can’t boast to Sean! Brisbane was one of the few teams that beat us this year. :sad:

        Yes, it was great news coming out of Tasmania. One state down, more to follow. :bravo:

    I spent the weekend selling books at a furry convention. So MANY peoiple in collars! I had a lovely time and will be going back next year. Today is laundry and grocery shopping.

    1. Wave Post author

      I guess now I know why they call it Labour Day if you’re doing chores. I hope you had fun at the furry convention. I’ve never been to one and I have pictures in my head of people dressed up in costumes, being led around by dog collars. :shock:

  5. Ingrid

    I won Sean’s last time give away copy back in whenever. I got a paper! copy of T&D including a signed card.
    Maybe I should try to win the e-book version :???:
