Coming Attractions

By Mathilde Madden

No 'Coming Attractions' last week as I was wrestling werewolves into an A4 envelope. Sorry about that. I hope the picture makes up for it.
It is dedicated to the ever inquisitive Nikki Magennis, who wanted to know if Marcus had his knickers on in this picture. Well, of course, not. He is in the shower. He might be very, very pretty but he is not an idiot.

On Monday fresh from the success of her debut novel Standish is the wonderful Erastes to tell us why on earth a woman would want to write a male/male historical romance? Surely not just to avoid the tiresome So have you done all the things in your books? question.

Meanwhile Gwen Masters will be here on Wednesday with more fascinating questions. What's the craziest thing you've ever done for love? Knowing our viewers this could be, um, interesting. We'll be adding our thoughts, and possibly taking notes.

And talking of craziness, I don't think I can think of anything crazier than trying to write a novel with another human person. Trust me, I don’t play well with others. But Dayle A Dermatis and Teresa Noelle Roberts seem to thrive on it, cracking out novels and short stories together as Sophie Mouette and indulging in dalliances with other writing partners too. Well, how does that work then? All will be revealed on Friday when they show us their hive mind at work by co-writing a blog post for us.

Tilly aka Mathilde Madden
Still your first choice for snark, wordplay and dangerously naked men.

Who cares if the boy has his undies on? Seriously, the only important question is why did my shower not come with one of those? I didn't see it on my options list...

**pouts**

I... don't remember a damn thing I just read. Must. Re-read. Tune. Out. Shower photo.

Mathilde Madden said...

Good point, Shanna. Perhaps the Foundation for Dangerously Naked Men should start doing home furnishings

Nikki Magennis said...

That's for me? Oh, Mathilde, I'm really touched.

(Or at least, I'd like to be.)

Thank you. In return, I've got a Lost episode where Sayid (sp?) gets cuffed. Wanna see it? ; )

Alison Tyler said...

Tilly,

My birthday is in June...
What are you going to get me?
I hope it's as luscious a gift as shower boy...
Except, my tastes run more to French horror writers, like
him...

Did I mention that he's French?
And a writer?

Can I keep him?

XXX,
Alison

It's my birthday in October. I know it's a while off but I'd like a wet one.

Also, I'll be finalising the ms of my 'neo-Gothic tale of suspense and submission set in a puppet museum on the Yorkshire moors' on Easter weekend ... and I'd like a wet one.

Also, it's my neighbour's cousin's gerbil's 5th wedding anniversary next week and I'd like a ...

Is it okay if we just put in orders like this?

Mathilde Madden said...

I'm not a porn broker, you know.

Alison Tyler said...

But are you a smut broker?

Shanna Germain said...

Wait, wait, wait. My birthday's in April, so you should all be focused right here, right now.

I get first crack at the boy (says the Aries with some determination and a toss of her horns).

Then you can all worry over who gets him after me.

grins, s.

Alison Tyler said...

All right, Shanna,
I'm in line after you...

But we should check in with Kristina... if there's one guy and a lot of girls, is it a gang bang?

Or just every man's fantasy...

Nikki Magennis said...

Well I think actually he was given to me but before we get into hair-pulling and as it's nearly your birthday, Shanna, you can have shower-boy.

Tilly, can I get another one please? I don't mind if it's wet or not, so long as it has Big Hands.

Kate Pearce said...

Damn-my birthday was in January-heaves mournful sigh-that's a long wait for a wet one...

TeresaNoelleRoberts said...

Shanna, you're an April girl too? Aries or Taurus (for what little it's worth)? Because Dayle and I are April as well.

So...can we get a matched set? Triplets, or an entire nekkid boy band, or something?

Nikki Magennis said...

Teresa, here's FOUR nekkid chili peppers.

Not really a boy band, but will they do in the meantime?

Nikki Magennis said...

Ah, or not. Someone somewhere doesn't want us to see the nekkid boys.

Either that or I'm crap at links...

Shanna Germain said...

Teresa,

I'm a red-hot, horn-swinging, "god damn it, I'll do it!" Aries all the way. Much to the sadness of those who love me. (However, I will say that my two best female friends are both Aries).

:) s.

Shanna Germain said...

p.s. Nikki -- Sorry, didn't mean to steal your gift. I mean, well, I did mean to, actually, but now I'm feeling kind of bad about it. Only a little, really though...

p.p.s. Scratch that. He's mine, damn it! :) s.

Nikki Magennis said...

That's okay. You Aries scare me. (Being a soft-focus Libran myself...)

kristina lloyd said...

Tilly and I are Scorpios.

Stand aside, please ...

Nikki Magennis said...

Oh fuck.

I hate being the pussy of the zodiac.

In Chinese, I'm a fire dragon though.

ROOOOAAARRR!!!

(Did I scare you? Go on, say I did.)

kristina lloyd said...

Bless. Isn't she sweet?

What shall we call her?
