Sunday's Brunch: Me & my facebook

Good mooooooorning everyone! I am going to love writing this Sunday’s Brunch post even more than normal cause it has pretty men and uhm, pretty men and I know I had more *crunches memory* Oh…just call me shallow, I’ve got hawt men in this post!! *grin*

The reason I’ve got hawt men in this post is due to social media. I know @erotromreader talked about social media a few weeks back and it got me thinking. I love being social but it is also a time suck. So last week I went to visit my friend, Marissa. Beside the fact that I got sideswiped by the announcement my train wasn’t going any further than Rotterdam and I called her in a panic, she came to save the day and we had a good time! Her little diva made me a pressie and we are so in sync regarding what is important in a drawing. Hearts, butterflies, flowers but most of all it is mainly PINK and has lots of GLITTER!!

I was dazzled:

Marissa and I talked the hours away and suddenly got to talk about facebook. When I started my blog there were two givens; you needed a twitter and facebook account. So I did but facebook and I never fully meshed. I’ve got no idea how Marissa and I got to this topic but she showed me her page and a hunk page she liked. Oh yeah, angels were singing hallelujah at that moment. First of all I love the new timeline feature, so much more dynamic and fun than before. But most of, and this was very important to me in actively participating in the facebook experience, I found a facebook app. It’s a good one, not a great one but it does its job. And since my Ipad is an extension of my body these days it was imperative I found that app. So I revamped my facebook a bit. For some reason it felt right to use a real life photo of myself and I entered the facebook world.

First of all I liked Beautiful Male Bodies…want a taste of what they got, here ya go *wink*

I’m also having plenty of smiles using facebook. Who doesn’t get all happy looking at this:
Find Giggle Palooze on facebook

And I find wisdom from likeminded peeps *wink*

Even when I wake up in the middle of the night and can't fall back to sleep I find treasures at Facebook:

I'm a simple kind of gal sometimes with covers. Give me a fantastic color palet, an interesting setting but most of all a drop-dead gorgeous and lickable guy on the cover and I'm in cover heaven. The first thing I did when looking at this cover was swallow hard. Look at all that skin and fine muscle tone. Add the jeans and cowboy hat and I go *rawr* BRANDED info can be found on Goodreads.

It is safe to say facebook and I rekindled the love and are going strong once more!

Last week has also been the week I had my Nora Roberts binge. After reading The Witness I read; Caroline Moon, Carnal Innocence and Birthright. For now I've had enough :) I will do an Ode to Nora Roberts blogpost that will contain my favorite quotes from these books. I just love the dialogues between a multitude of characters. Lots of laughs, lots of crying as well. So now I'm reading Cut And Run from Abigail Roux and Madeleine Urban, talk about doing an 180 genre wise. I think it is perhaps as long as two years ago that @erotromreader talked to me about these books and only yesterday I started to read the first book in this series. Ty and Zane have great dynamics but for some reason I'm reminded of Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh from Lethal Weapon. It's probably my weird mind at work here *eek*

Curious minds always want to know; So what are you guys reading?


  1. I'm also one of the people who love the new timeline on facebook, it looks way more appealing than the old look. And it's still super easy to use.

    The Nora reread sounds like a lot of fun, I might do one soon. :)

  2. That sounds like a really good day! I miss our get togethers!!

    I love facebook! It personal and not book linked, but it has all the people I know in RL as well as some family. Especially now that I'm in Australia, it's a good way to keep in touch!

  3. My daughter is an artist lol! It was a great day with great pics, and since the new timeline I am so much more active on FB! And that Laura Wright cover, coverorgasm!!

  4. What? You have to get rid of those thoughts about Martin and Roger asap! You're ruining Ty and Zane completely, lol!

    I must say the reasons to join Facebook are piling up. Thanks for that, darling. ;D

  5. *waves* Good that she came to save the day, bad bad train!
    Oh yes FB, it's just a great way to keep up

  6. Lol, that sure is a little artist Marissa! I am not into Facebook, never go there if I don't absolutely have to. Not even for the hot pics ;). Twitter is also a gread medium where hot and new covers are Tweeted. Twitter I understand and like :)

    I have been reading the second Edge series book by Ilona Andrews and it blew me away. Review will have to be written tonight, and then book 3 is calling.

  7. Wow, beautiful men is right! Thank you for the wonderful smorgasbord. :)

    I rarely go to Facebook but when I do I do find some gems. :)

  8. This is an early comment but I just wanted to say “Thank You” for letting me be included in your Hop Against Homophobia. I am afraid I am not a talented m/m fiction writer like yourself but I am an avid reader of it.

    I guess I do not fit into any category really since I write non-fiction for an adult gay studio.

    But this is a cause I feel strongly about and I wanted to let you know I appreciate the opportunity to be included.

    I put a post up at the top of my blog on May 5th and it will remain up until May 19th. http://shadowsterling.blogspot.com/2012/05/straights-and-international-day-against.html

    Since I do not write books I will be donating money to PFLAG here in the U.S. in the name of the winner.

    Thank you again for the inclusion.


I love to hear all your voices and opinions so thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
