Share of the week: Bates Motel

I’m a big fan of the horror genre, though I’m so jaded now that it’s hard for a movie to creep me out or startle a jump from me any more. I’m fascinated by the psychological twistedness of killers, like a car accident I can’t look away from. I’m sure this fascination with serial killers is tied up with the idea of mortality, the inexorable approach of death for all of us, and other psychological stuff I don’t care to try to untangle. Long story short, of course I had to watch the Psycho based series Bates Motel, now in … Read more »

Guest Post Fri. – Summer Devon

releasing-the-shifterSummer Devon has a book out May 5th – a contemporary m/m shapeshifter story, the third in the series, though each story is stand alone.

 Releasing the Shifter

Solitary Shifters, Book 3

 To save his love he must face his monster and—worse—be nice to people.

Montag is a monster. He doesn’t know what sort of creature he would turn into if he ever let himself shift, but he knows it’s something predatory and lethal. He fights back the urge to shift every day of his life, and has never dared get close to anyone—not that they want him to. Read more »

It’s All About Atmosphere

So, this weekend I caught up on an HBO show I’d missed, True Detective. Talk about somber and depressing. Like so many of the darker shows I perversely enjoy, the cinematography is  beautiful in its starkness.

Committed Passion, the final Wyatt brothers story

Commited Passion_300dpiCommitted Passion is a series finale, each couples’ story is moved along a little further and loose endings are tied up. I enjoyed revisiting all the characters and at the same time I was happy to say goodbye so I can start something new. Not sure exactly what the next series will be. I started on a MC (motorcycle club) romance a while back but about a chapter in I realized I wasn’t achieving the grit factor expected in these types of romances. But maybe I’ll work on it anyway. In the meantime, I hope you’ll enjoy Committed Passion. Buy … Read more »
