I have started a new project for 2021, one photo for each day of the year. This is my second attempt at something like this. The first time was using a DSLR camera, and because I don’t carry that everywhere things quickly fell apart. Now that I am carrying my phone around everywhere (and the camera quality is likely better than that old DSLR!) I think that this time around will be easier. I will be gathering all of the photos in one album, which you can click through below:
I realized yesterday that I bought my first M/M romance book on June 7, 2015. They’ve all been through Amazon Kindle (read using the Kindle app on my iPad or laptop), which is good and bad – good for easy accessibility, bad for impulse buying! While musing about this over the last few days I made some observations:
I’ll assume this is due to self-published works or working with a small publisher of limited means. Since I’m buying ebooks it doesn’t really matter much to me, though I’ve learned to avoid looking at the cover before I read a book’s synopsis.
I have really enjoyed this year of reading, and I am still learning more about the genre and finding new and interesting authors (and revisiting authors whose other works I’ve read, too!). After taking literally a few decades off from casual reading, I am finding this a welcome and refreshing return to something that I have always deeply enjoyed.

I feel like the werewolf genre just makes werewolves generic bad asses too often without exploring some of the pitfalls of being a werewolf….like not wanting to rip your nice clothes because you gotta tear off a dude’s face. (To be fair, she normally would wear clothes that aren’t as nice, but it was an emergency.)
I’m working on pulling together a lengthy werewolf comic story, and this is sort of a little test comic to see if I can deal with drawing werewolves constantly. (Not a problem. It’s super fun to draw werewolves.)

So as a follow up to Wake Me Up Inside by Cardeno C., I picked up the next book in the series, Until Forever Comes. I almost didn’t – it’s a werewolf/vampire romance, and while I do loves me some werewolf romance, vampire stories in general leave me cold (heh). I’m finding this one surprisingly engaging.
The central trope for this series (“Mates”) is that on rare occasions there is someone out there who is your One True Mate. You are drawn to them spiritually, emotionally, and physically. This seems a very pat express route to Happily Ever After, but the author introduces enough interesting twists and obstacles (both mates are male? They’re forced to remain separated? One is a werewolf and the other a vampire, who are natural enemies?) to make the books worth reading.
I’m now looking forward to the third book in the series as well, and I’ll probably write up some thoughts when I’m done with that.
