Video I Love: Shirley and Jenny, A True Love Story

If you’ve never seen this video or heard about these two, I promise you’ll shed some tears as you watch these elephants reunite after more than 20 years apart. So heartbreaking how they had to live and the abuse they suffered because of humans, but beautifully touching to watch them find they had someone special in their lives again.

If you don’t see the video above, you can watch on YouTube.

You can also read the rest of their story here and here.

I get excited whenever I see inclusive commercials, no matter what the product is that’s being featured. We just need more. More of this ad, the related documentaries released by Honey Maid, and their response to the negative feedback. Go Honey Maid!

Then there’s the response to the negative feedback. Love, love, love this!

Videos I Love: Pure joy, happiness, and love

I’m such a sucker for puppy cuteness. Throw in a guy being sweet and adorable with his dog, and I’m all melty. Here are three vids that fit the bill.

Siberian husky playing in leaves. Love the guy’s giggling too.

 

Boxer puppy laughing. Love me a man who loves his dog

 

Confused Boxer Puppy. Boxers have some of the best facial expressions

My Latest Favorite Typo

One of my favorite typos from working on I SWEAR TO YOU:

Grady was still ringing the cum from his cock when Mateo swung his legs off the side of the bed, facing the opposite wall.

Brrrrring…brrrrring…time to come.

By the way, I SWEAR TO YOU has been added to Goodreads if anyone wants to add it to your shelves there.

Cover Reveal: I Swear to You

I Swear to You Cover

Cover Artist: Syneca Featherstone
I Swear to You coming April 29, 2014

Grady and Mateo, two “straight” college roommates, spend a weekend away together during their senior year exploring how far beyond friendship their feelings have grown. After that weekend, they go their separate ways, but eventually neither one can let go of the idea that maybe they really are gay and are meant to be together. It just takes one a little longer than the other to figure that out. Is he too late?
