Oh, here I've been on Goodreads 3 years or so and have no profile! I live in Western Washington State now, but I was born and raised in Los Angeles County, CA (Redondo Beach, Long Beach, West Los Angeles, Inglewood, others.) Books took me so many place in my mind an heart when I was a child and teen, and I've never stopped reading and loving it. I write, too, in the M/M genre, and have currently four published titles in the Vasquez and James series, through Dreamspinner Press. I absolutely love to communicate readers, reviewers, and writers, so please feel free to comment on my posts or leave me a personal message. I also love color, the Pacific, cedar trees, roses, deserts, desserts, forests, lakes, humans, four-leggeds, birds, and sunshin ...more

A romance/suspense for Brian Harrison and Jackie Vasquez, whom many remember as important characters in Finding Jackie. Title is "A Shot of J&B." Brian has become a Scotland Yard detective, Jackie is a grad student, and there a perfect match for love and a little rope kink--BDSM pretty light. :)(less)

Keep writing, even when you hate what you've written (which will happen). 2. Avoid making your words into sacred cows. As an editor, I once had an author refuse to negotiate the change of a single word in his story. He didn't get published. As an author, some of my favorite scenes and lines don't end up in a book! (3) Keep writing. (4) Every author needs a qualified editor. If you're going to self-publish, hire a professional. (5) Keep writing! (6) Keep writing. :) And I wish you grand success!(less)

.... is anybody here?

A lot has happened in the last few years, and one of the things that fell by the wayside—keeping up with this Goodreads blog—and Goodreads things in general. But I used to love the interaction with readers here, and if readers are still around...

So how about this: I'll post this excerpt from a WIP called Holiday Home Hotel, and a picture of the dog, and you can let me know... Read more of this blog post »

Nicci Thanks for accepting the invite. I'm very much looking forward to reading the latest Sonny and Luki book.

Sandra, you're welcome for all, and Luki and Sonny bow in your direction--yes it really feels more like they've created themselves than I've created them. They'll be back, I'm certain! Presently waiting on the publisher to give the thumbs up on their final suspense/mystery, Saving Sonny James. After that they've got one more story to star in, but it's a different sort of story, follows very loosely on the Novella Yes, to be entitled Jade, as it now stands. There's going to be some spin-offs, and they'll pop in from time to time. So, yes they'll be around. Thanks for the friend request, and inquiry, Sandra!

Lou Sylvre Hey, Beatrice! I'm glad you told me that. Jimmy Santiago is, in my mind, the spitting image of a boy I knew in grade school whose first name was Tommy. He was the kind of boy that was always smiling, always eager for a game of dodge ball or whatever, slight stature but scrappy. I have admired him all my life. Jimmy's part is small, but huge in the difference it made to the boy Luki to know that this one boy was brave enough to stand up for him. He and Maria both meant a lot to Luki, and in a strange way they mean a lot to me, too. (Well, yes, I already said it was a strange way....) Seriously, though, thanks for telling me that.

Beatrice I can't believe I forgot to tell you this, but I should say "thank you" for adding Little Jimmy to Loving Luki Vasquez. I'm Filipino and even if Little Jimmy had a really minuscule part in the book, it made me happy. :)

Lou Sylvre Thank you, Beatrice! What a lovely compliment! I'm glad your enjoying the guys so far, and reading by flashlight sounds like a lovely way to keep your mind off the power outage. Hopefully you kept warm, too. I've been away from a computer today (except the ones that belong to the feds), so I just now got this note, and it's a nice surprise.

Beatrice Hi again, Lou! So while power was out in small-town Connecticut, I used a flashlight and started reading Loving Luki Vasquez. I'm at around 62% right now and let me just say that your prose is absolutely lovely! I love how you have an artful way with words, and I love Luki and Sonny's dynamic! And now I'm going back to reading...

Lou Sylvre Ah, something in common! I like to ignore work, too! Well, at least the work I "have" to do—though I don't get to ignore it very often. I'd really rather pay attention to the work I "want" to do—like for instance writing, and related activities. ;-) Hopefully I'll get to do some of that tonight. Maybe. Enjoy the rest of your day, Bea! Thanks for coming by to visit. :)

Beatrice wrote: "I hope you got enough rest! And I do believe there's nothing wrong with spending a couple of hours at B&N. ;) I'm doing great as well! Right now I'm very busy ignoring work. ;)"

Lou Sylvre Hey, Beatrice! I'm good. A little tired—it's late and it's been a very busy day. Got some good planning done for V&J 3, took my old dad to breakfast and taught him some tricks on a video game, and spent way too long browsing at B&N. ;-) What about you?

Beatrice Hi Lou! How are you? :)

Lou Sylvre Thanks for accepting, Nikyta. Yes, book 2 is called Delsyn's Blues, and I've just finished the manuscript. Dreamspinner tentatively plans to release it in January. If you're interested, there is a brief excerpt here: http://top2bottomreviews.wordpress.co... interview, but be forwarned it's a tear jerker. Anyway, very nice to meet up here!
