I'm Karen from Calgary, Alberta, Canada - nice to see another Canadian face. :) I've been on GR since about March of this year, and read nothing but m/m books.

I'm a huge fan of your work. My faves include .Diamond in the Shade 1 (broke my heart so many times and in so many ways), Survival (loved the tension and confusion and all the love underneath - is there going to be another one?), Vampire Lust series (mmm - vampires, do I have to say more?), Marry Me Or Die (such a unique book and characters) and Saga of the Wolf (another mmm... but werewolves this time).

I seem to be addicted to buying your ebooks and I have so many left to read - I just bought Finding Passionand Island Heat so those are next up on my vast list (I'll be buying Jake or Jack soon, as well), and I'm dying to start the Melting Ice series, Dirty Dreams series, Blood Pond and House of Driscoll.

I'm thinking you aren't around GR much but I hope you'll stop by sometime and say hi.
Karen

EDIT - Perhaps I jumped the gun in posting on here already - I was just too darn excited a group for you. I can definitely delete if you want me to though. :P

Sarah Hi, I'm Sarah.

Im from England a little minning village in South Yorkshire. Am a classic northerner.

I am a massive fan... Thank you for the email the other day and the comments on my reviews. Absolutely love reading your stories and your other half is adorable. (Lucky Man!!!).


Karin you will love Island Heat and Jack or Jake is great.

If you like vampires try Bampia... written with AJ Llewellyn its fab very surreal and hauntingly beautiful.

I've read tons of DJ's books in fact I'm working my way through them all. (Cost a fortune lol) there are over 100 will keep you busy for ages. Think I will be done for christmas. (Maybe) Although might be sooner been off work all week with a bad back and all I have done is read and have read quite a few.

Finding passion is lovely to read.. really easy going with great characters.

I haven't read survival yet. What's it like?

I have just started the blood eclipse series. So will let you know what they are like.. nearly half way through the first and very intrigued.

OK will stop rambling now.

Ohhh - I just bought the first one the other day along with more than a few others. I have to catch up with Sarah you know.

Do you want to start some threads on specific books, DJ? Or want us to do that? Oh and just a casual offer, if you ever need a second or third or whatever beta reader, I've done a little of that informally and would be honored. :D

Guess I don't have to say Happy Turkey-day since we Canadians already had ours, EH? Lol


message 8: by DJ (new)

DJ Manly (DJManly) | 13 comments Mod
Yep no turkey for us...and I'd be pleased if you started some threads...this is your place to talk about my work...go for it...I'm very pleased.

I'll let you know about beta reading...
Hope you like The Gladiator series...

message 33: by Lori K (new)

Lori K So, DJ Manly experts- I got aquatinted with DJ Manly's writing through Blood Pond. I thought that was great, loved the horror story aspect of it. Then read Melting Ice 2.

i just bought Last Call night and stormed through that. Very sweet. What next? There are so many! How about the new one, Cherished Displacement? I was thinking maybe Payment Due?

Thanks!


message 34: by Sarah (new)

Sarah I haven't read the new one yet!!! Urn I like Essense stepping stone schism them all lol


message 35: by Karen K (last edited Jan 15, 2011 09:47AM) (new)

Karen K (karenkleinshawca) | 19 comments I haven't read as many as Sarah but Mr. Manly's a definite fave of mine so I can give you some recs. I still have a lot of his to read and I haven't read Cherished yet, either.

My fave DJ series are Diamond in the Shade 1 (vamps and two of my fave of DJ's characters ever), House of Simeon (gladiators - mmm, Gold) and Black Point (sweet series with AJ).

If you want something a little "horrorish" and "whorish" with a rockstar edge, I really loved Survival, AU Marry Me Or Die, shifters Saga of the Wolf, more vamps Vampire Lust, hot cops and hot bikers Melting Ice 1, hot cops and hot criminal activity (plus some sweetness) The Pro, emotional (at least for me) My Father's Lover and some sweet ones Sterling for Christmas Kelsey's Present There's Nothing Like a Cowboy.

Some of the ones on my next-to-read list, besides Cherished Displacement, are Blood Pond (I've heard it's fabulous), the Blood Eclipse series (with AJ), Tainted (mmm, rockstars and vamps), Dirty Dreams (fantasium series) and the Love Most Inconvenient 1 series.

Okay, I'll stop now. :P

EDIT - holy Hell, just realized I mentioned way too many books here and probably didn't help you in the least. :D

Thanks, I will put these on my list for the next sale! From an interview I read I think Vampire Lust was one of his first, right?

ETA-as it happens they are having a half off code at fictionwise today. snow11


message 37: by Lori K (last edited Jan 17, 2011 02:21PM) (new)

Lori K Well, thanks to the FW sale I got the following-(and Sarah! Dang! all 113?-I bow to your inner fan...)

Beauty
Arsenic & Rio
All the BlackPoints except for the most recent I think-it wasn't on FW yet
Banpaia
Hardtime
Wanted (AJ)
Honeybone (AJ)
Fawnskin
My Father's Lover

So this should give me a good start. Started on the Blackpoint series -which is thoroughly sweet. Not at all what I was expecting.

Does anyone want to discuss Blood Pond? Or do you do all of the discussing over at yahoo?

We would need to ask DJ to start a new thread labeled spoiler. hmm...*clears throat* DJ?

Thanks for all the suggestions!


message 38: by [deleted user] (new)

You guys have been busy!! Sorry I haven't had a change to do this...smarter than an author bit...busy...but I promise soon...forgive me.

A thread called spoiler eh...lol..I'll leave that to you guys. You seem to know my work better than me.
And thanks for Nominating Blood Pond for best thriller of the year.

Spoiler...working on BP 2 now. lol

I read the first two Love Most Inconvenient and OMG they are so good and so teasingly frustrating. They leave you begging for more. Just wait until you read Marco and Paul's story in the first one. I'm still begging for more about those two.

Karen K (karenkleinshawca) | 19 comments I just bought it DJ - this is a "depression" time of year for me so reading keeps me afloat.
By the way - did you see GR has added a "Series by this author" part to your author's page? Looks great except the 3rd Gladiator isn't listed as part of Gladiators.

Oh yes...maybe they'll get around to it...lol...
Thanks for buying WR...hope you like it and don't get too depressed..lol
