Review: A Side of Salad

Title: A Salad on the Side
Author: Karenna Colcroft
Publisher: MLR
Opinion: Go read it. It’s good.

Good god. I don’t read enough. I really don’t. There was a time when I read a book a day. Now it’s more like a couple books a year. It’s odd having someone else’s thoughts in my head when they are so different than my own. Colcroft’s thoughts are firm though, her character’s voices strong and confident, solid in themselves, even if they’re as different from my thoughts as oak is from blown glass.

A Salad on the Side is more first person than I’ve really enjoyed before, but it still had a very solid feel for me, even if it really makes me know how different fiction is than when I was reading a lot. Kyle is a well developed and very human voice. I liked him a lot. I loved Tobias too. For that matter, I very much liked the whole cast of characters.

The sex in it is vanilla by my tastes, but really tasty. The boys just fill me with a glowing warmth that has me smiling as I write this. Makes me want to draw them.  And I just might.. because nothing says go read this fucking book like fan art :)

Christmas Blog Hop

Joyous Holidays! Merry Christmas!

How was your Thanksgiving? I hope you had a great time! For your reading pleasure, I offer you this scene from my current novel. Syn is going to have a Christmas like none other! The prize for this blog hop... is that if you comment on this post, you'll be entered into a drawing for the 5th, which is when Christmas Carnival is going to release, and that is the prize. It's going to be a very hot and wicked book... Christmas on a colony where sex is the center of everything. It's a kinky, BDSM book, so if that's not your thing, you'll be welcome to pick a story from my back list!

You Rock!


Saturday's Edit!

This post is going to get edited multiple times over the next few days :) I've got story and art to add in. I've never been one to wait till Christmas or want a surprise, but maybe I've been wrong, so I'm exploring this idea of timely gifts :)

Note: This is set way after the wars... like Duo’s 175.  Technology is advanced as I like to write it, but he’s not using it all in this one, he’s a little more nature bent this time around. There is a chance that Heero’s body may have been altered in ways that his handlers thing will lessen the chance of a union between Duo and Heero, if this turns out to be the case, it will be resolved by the end of the story. I actually know how this one ends and I think it’s going to be my Nanowrimo this year - well, what I get started after the 1st, anyway. Anyway, I hope I tell you a story you’ll find some pleasure in.
Rain darkened the little cabin, ran like little rivers off the green metal roof.  The clearing around it was just big enough for his truck, marked black and white, sheriff in large letters on both doors and the tailgate.  The steps leading up to the front door where thick and uneven, hand planed from found wood.  Inside the spa…
