Happy Gay Friday, Piracy and I want to read more More
Wow, it’s Friday again! And it’s the last of this month too. Time for some hot male/male deliciousness :)
I’m very happy that Mia Watts was here this week, she sure brightened it up. You can still enter the giveaway here for a chance to win one of her two new releases, until Monday night! And I hope you’ll give her some support by buying her books (when they’re your cup of tea), because the moment her book Freeze Frame was released last Wednesday it was stolen and put up at one of the pirate websites that are apparently out there. I think you all agree with me that an author does not deserve to be treated like that.
Btw I had no idea that these sites existed, call me a naïve silly filly, but apparently a lot of authors are victims of sites like that and there’s not much they can do to stop them from stealing their books. It made me look a little bit different towards the so hated DRM protection that some ebooks have. I hate the DRM because it forces me to become more computer savvy than I actually am, when I’m handling the variety of ebook formats on my different reading devices. But god, what do people think that they have the right to put someone else’s property up for free for the whole wide world to grab?
Anyway, I hate to see a wonderful author like Mia to be down and discouraged to keep writing, when this is happening to her books. Big hugs for her and her colleagues and let’s hope she will write a lot more books for readers who are happy to buy them!
Then my M/M reads of this week:
I finished one book this week and I’m reading one right now, but there are a lot more I wish I could’ve read this week, because there were a few interesting M/M releases this week, like Tere Michaels’ Duty & Devotion, S.J. Frost’s No Fear and Mia Watts’ Freeze Frame. And the one I’m reading right now: More by Sloan Parker.
Somebody Killed His Editor by Josh Lanyon. KC from Smokinhotbooks recommended this book to me as a cheer up book because she thought I could use one after Binny died last week. And boy, did this book live up to the title of 'Janna’s cheer up book', as she called it. It’s a hilarious, witty mystery with a touch of romance in it, told in the characteristic Lanyon style. I really enjoyed it a lot!
More. It’s an M/M/M romance and OMG it’s so hot! I can’t put it down, I’m not far into the book yet but the main character Luke is already stealing my heart and his two lovers are showing the promise of more character depth too. I want to read faster to learn more about them and especially to experience more of their freakin’ hot chemistry.
It’s just that I have to put it down for a few hours now because I’m meeting with a friend for a Friday night drink and bite in less than an hour. Do you think it would be impolite to bring my book with me? To sneak read some more More during dinner? Or would that be considered anti-social? And when I tell you that my friend is gay, do you think I can count on some understanding? No? Dang!
Happy Gay Friday everyone!
