Next Exit’s two main problems are 1) someone else already made this movie five years ago and called it The Discovery, and 2) The Discovery sucked like a motherfucker, so that not only is Next Exit a sort of unofficial remake (or, to put it more bluntly, a shameless rip-off), but it does nothing to improve upon the source material.

#TimeTravelAuthors 7: Wednesday snippet (optional word: "bright/light")

I often talk about my love birds, Annabelle and Claire, but they never had the chance to appear in an excerpt. Well, today "changes things"!

This is one of their first scenes together in Book 1, when they're still seeing each other only at a distance, thanks to Claire's mental projection.

#WritingCommunity #SapphicBooks #Romance #Fantasy #WIP

“You're back,” she whispered, keeping the secret between them. The secret that Claire shouldn’t be there, and Annabelle shouldn’t be able to see and talk to her.

“I had to make sure you were getting better.”

Annabelle sighed, and Claire cursed herself for alluding to the terrible past few days. Relief washed over her when Annabelle smiled again, a dimmer and shier smile, but entrancing all the same. “Having you here changed things. Truly. You came as a light, reminding me that even in my darkest times, I was never completely alone.”

This #romance is about an editor and an author falling in love over email after the editor passes out on a subway, then the author ghosts the editor that he made such a strong connection with, Lilly, but then moves in to an apartment next-door to hers. It is slow burn, but I am just loving this way more than I thought I would! Insecurities, comedic situations, learning to trust your own worth and value. I know that this is writing advice others would disagree with, but I also like the fact the author name drops other real black writers in the book. It’s allowed me to take down names for later reading after I finish this one. #RomanceLandia

Topic: Contrarian Barbarian's Book Club (Of greatness!)

@bookstodon I'm popping this up once more, just in case anyone else wants to join before our first meeting in late June.

Is anyone out there interested in being a part of a Contrarian Barbarian's Book Club where we read whatever the hell we want individually and meet up once a month on the newly formed Contrarian Barbarian Discord server to tell each other about it for a couple of minutes each and then discuss? (All genres/fiction/non-fiction on the table.)

The key focus would be sharing books we love with other people in a positive way. It'd have the diehard rule that if you freakin' love a thing, no one can be negative about it because that would be raining on your parade and your parade is spectacular dammit!

All time zones welcome to say hi!

LGBTQIA++, disability and neurodivergent friendly, with a structure with set rules of conduct--meaning that boorishness (repeatedly talking/typing over people and not respecting boundaries) or trollishness gets booted with the might of Gandalf warding off the Balrog.

If you like the sound of this, reply to this and tell me about the book you love most with the power of the sun.

We've already got a bunch of amazing people and the more the merrier! :blobsmilehappyeyes:

The scene shot in landscape format shows a pond in a forest. The pond stretches across the entire width in the foreground and narrows towards the background. On the left side, a steep slope ends at the shore. The surface of the intensely turquoise water is calm. Next to the shore grow trees and grasses that are reflected in the water surface. A tree with bright green leaves stretches its branches across the pond. Just below it, a few leaves float on the water. A little further left in the center, illuminated by the sun, a tree trunk lies on the ground. The light directs the view to this small spot on the shore, the surroundings are shadier.

A Tyranny of Angels, book 1 
by Isobel Lynn

Bryony Moss didn’t plan to become a god, but accidents happen, and giving up immortality once you have it is easier said than done. Convinced her life is in danger, she infiltrates the crew of the infamous Black Armada with plans to dispatch their godhunter before she is discovered. But all her plans begin to unravel as soon as she learns the truth.

Far from the ruthless pirates she’d imagined, the Black Armada are akin to ruthless librarians, distributing banned books to fight the tyrannical rule of the angels. Once she’s in, Bryony can’t imagine killing any of them. She might even be tempted to join them for real. To top it off, she seems to be falling for the flagship’s navigator, a kind but isolated giant named Michael.

@bookstodon My #review of #GrandmasterofDemonicCultivation Vol. 5 (#MoDaoZuShi) by #MoXiangTongXiu has gone live! This was a great wrap-up of the series: bittersweet for the most part, which I think makes better sense than an out-and-out happy ending.

Pink roses in the garden, photography. I've never tried to grow what I would call "fancy" roses. You know, those on tall stems intended for vases. I like them, just think they're probably finicky & require a lot of work. I opt for hedges of "knockout" roses. Beautiful, full of colorful, long-lasting blooms that self clean. Easy peasy!

Well, I'm a newbie here, so let me tell ya a bit about myself.

I'm #writer who writes everything from #fantasy, #horror, #sci-fi, to even some #romance, #erotica, and #smut as well.

I'm also a nerdy guy and into a bit of sport too, I even have an ongoing #Webnovel series about a couple of high school American football athletes (you can check that out here btw).

Still trying to figure out what to do with all this social media, but, let's be friends and help each other.

I still haven't figured out how to connect with romance fans on Mastodon, so I have a question for Romancelandia:

Who are the writers, readers / listeners & reviewers you follow in Romance Mastodon who use hashtags skillfully?

I need to learn from some people who are good at this!

"The Trouble With Angels" is a romantic comedy that's really enjoyable and accessible for people who are not diehard romance fans.

If you've been thinking about checking out my fiction books but felt iffy about the romance genre (romance is not everyone's cup of tea & that's perfectly fine), "The Trouble with Angels" is genuinely a good place to start.

#Romance @romancelandia @audiobooks @bookstodon

A Kindle lying on a pale blue background plays the audiobook of "The Trouble With Angels" by Maggie Adams, narrated by Eden Cavell, showing silhouettes of of two men in suits with angel wings, standing in a field of wildflowers. A yellow banner across the bottom right-hand corner says: "now in audio."

Have I ever told you what Maggie Adams made me do for the audiobook of "The Trouble With Angels?" 😅

There are two male characters with a lot of shared scenes: I had to differentiate the voices. And [mildest spoilers] there's a scene where one of the men puts on an accent, & then the other guy mimics him to make fun of him -- that's layer on layer of voice actor challenge.

If you want to hear me flex as an audiobook narrator, check it out!

One’s sexual and romantic attractions may not align. An asexual is not necessarily aromantic and a sexual is not necessarily romantic. As well, a person may be heterosexual but may be homoromantic, because again, sexual and romantic attractions may not be the same

Heterosexual – Sexual attraction to a different sex/gender

Homosexual – Sexual attraction to the same sex/gender

Bisexual – Sexual attraction to more than one sex/gender

Pansexual – Sexual attraction to people regardless of sex/gender

Asexual – Does not experience sexual attraction

Demisexual – Only experiences sexual attraction after a strong emotional bond has been established

Greysexual – Only occasionally experience sexual attraction

Instead of a meme

Sexual Orientation - A sexual orientation is whether you feel a sexual attraction to another person or not, and who you are sexually attracted to. Sexual attraction is a desire to have sexual relations with another person and/or vivid sexual fantasies of said person. Sexual attraction should not be confused with aesthetic attraction.

Romantic Orientation – A romantic orientation is whether you experience romantic attraction to another person or not, and to whom you experience romantic attraction to. Romantic attraction is a desire to be close/intimate with another person, but is not necessarily sexual. Romantic orientation is used strongly by asexuals as they do not experience sexual attraction.
