BEING THE 'BAD BOY' OF M/M GAY ROMANCE It's not easy to be new kid on the block. I am completely new to the M/M world and I didn't start reading it until almost a year ago. Being a male, in a predominately female-driven genre has its advantages and disadvantages. I know what it's like to experience heart break from a man who promises you the world only to kick you to the curb. I know what it's like to watch someone you love kill themselves. I know what it's like to be ch...

Yaoi-Con weekend

Just gorgeous.  Let me just start by saying that I love Yaoi-Con so much. Its the only place where I can get things for me and find things that are not yaoi for my kids.

In honor of Coconut Cove’s release, I thought I’d stop by with a list of my favorite things about summer. I don’t care if it is the end of August, I’m holding onto Summer for as long as I can! 5- Flip Flops!  Okay, so reality is, I’ll wear flip flops at any time of the year, but there’s nothing more fun that flip-flapping my way around town in my favorites! I have a collection--don’t judge me!--and I can’t wait for it to get warm enough to wear them...
