Chris Pratt is actually the nicest most humble celebrity in the world. Fact.
I have a huge crush on Chris Pratt. Also, the top frame is how I feel about my life right now. The first job after having to be a server? Man, life is nothing but groovy awesome times after that.
Welcome to Consent, an Interlude Press imprint dedicated to publishing original works of erotic literature by great writers from online fan communities.
Fourth blog stop is ALL ABOUT THE COVER!!! This is something I have been dying to talk about because look at my cover, LOOK AT IT!!! And I will continue to talk about it forever… this is just the beginning.
As far as the book cover goes, let me begin by stating, for the record, that I am the least visually minded person I know of. I don’t picture things or even really look at things. People that have read my erotica before always doubt me when I say this because I tend to write sex with a ton of detail but then I get them to go back through a scene and see how much of the description is visual and how much is described by the other sensations. They’re always shocked.
The first time I drove over to a particular friend’s house, having been given a lift there in her car a dozen times before, I had to call her from the street because I couldn’t recognize her house. That’s how not a visual person I am. So when I was asked to think about cover designs for Platonic, I was completely lost. There was a conference call scheduled with the graphic artist in charge of the cover, the publishers, and myself while I was driving around Arizona and Colorado writing Platonic. I got stuck with very little reception staring out across the Grand Canyon and trying to get the call to work. It was a mess and it dropped out several times, I rambled while no one was connected and they discussed things not realizing I wasn’t listening.
it bothers me that Kansas and Arkansas are not pronounced the same
I’m from the UK and I have been pronouncing Arkansas as Ar-Kansas my whole life
For all my non-american friends, Arkansas is pronounced ark-an-saw
For my third blog tour post over at ‘Words of Wisdom’ I was asked to write about the difference between writing m/f and m/m erotica. I think, in light of the quote circulating that highlight’s the fact that ‘Platonic’ is just a lovestory that happens in be about two men, this is a rather timely thing for me to discuss…So:
Certainly, in beginning to write m/m, having exclusively written m/f stories for about a decade, there were a few things that immediately presented as different. They’re relatively trivial though. The need to use names instead of pronouns will forever frustrate me. When you can differentiate characters by he/she and then come to write a sex scene and ‘he’ could mean either one of them…that was weird and learning that using their names more often than not took time. The mechanistic side of m/m sex is obviously different to m/f sex and I still often go off to look at anatomy, physiology, and porn, all in the name of research. That said, I wrote m/f sex that was mechanistically different to what I had experienced. So I don’t think that’s a big deal. The other thing is that in a m/m romance social prejudices like homophobia can be featured as part of the story. I tend not to do that in a major way so, again, that’s not a big deal for me. Also it’s worth pointing out that m/f stories can feature social prejudices and that all m/m stories do not have to.

I laughed way too hard at this.

I don’t know what I was expecting, but it wasn’t this. It’s just so pretty.
"A new study shows that men are threatened by confident women taking pictures of themselves, and call these women stupid, socially inept, and ugly. In other news, the world is round, the sky is blue, and the patriarchy is still shitty."
I’ve been laughing for 20 years
