Favorite Glee Performances (now that I’ve finally watched more than 2 episodes)

Yes, I’m a slow writer AND a slow TV viewer. My sweetie and I finally took the time to watch more than a few episodes of Glee. In fact, I think we’re all caught up. My favorite performances so far?

Ricky Martin: “Sexy And I Know It” (The part with him in the chair alone is well worth watching. Damn, that man is fine! How does one make wiggling look good? And Finn trying to dance is worth a laugh.)

“Gold Digger” (Will trying to teach Finn to dance is priceless)

“Don’t Stop Believin'” (the original) (probably my fave of the show)

What is your favorite?

Quote I Love: Believe in yourself and in your own voice

For all you writers out there…

“Believe in yourself and in your own voice, because there will be times in this business when you will be the only one who does. Take heart from the knowledge that an author with a strong voice will often have trouble at the start of his or her career because strong, distinctive voices sometimes make editors nervous. But in the end, only the strong survive.”

– Jayne Ann Krentz

He wanted to hear those words

I need to do these more often. I always have a great time picking out these fave excerpts from other authors of m/m romance. This one’s from a BDSM erotic historical by Ava March. A great series to start out with if you’ve been wanting to try reading BDSM.

“Love you,” Oliver whispered.

Vincent’s lips curved in a smile, his blue eyes softening with genuine affection. Oliver’s heart leapt into his throat, pleading for the response he knew Vincent would not utter. He wanted to hear those words just once. One time. Even if Vincent didn’t feel them. He could at least have the sound of them as a memory and play them over in head as he lay alone in his bed and pretend they had come from Vincent’s heart.

Vincent cupped his jaw. Eyes drifting closed, Oliver leaned into his touch. A quiver of need shook his body. Soft lips brushed his, the lightest of touches, a mere whisper of skin against skin. Then that large hand slipped away.

Thanks to everyone who picked up a copy so far, and all the reviewers who have taken the time to read the book and write up a review. I’m thrilled so many of you have enjoyed it.

Here are a few of the wonderful remarks for Take Me Home:

“I loved both of the heroes in this book, and found myself easily rallying for their relationship to grow from being best friends to developing a loving, romantic relationship together that lived long within my heart long after the story was over.” Night Owl Reviews

“I can assure you that you will LOVE Take Me Home. This is a book that you will want to read over and over. Ms. Parker is an incredible writer and I have enjoyed every one of her books. But let me warn you…once you read her books you’re hooked and will find yourself waiting impatiently for her next one.” Books and Porn

“This isn’t just a romance, it is filled with plenty of heartfelt moments, action of both the steamy kind and adventure kind, it had everything you could want from an m/m romance read with a little mystery and plenty of suspense.” Book Devotee Reviews

“Oh, this was such a sweet, yummy friends-to-lovers story! … Great dynamic between the two guys with just the right combination of tender, sweet moments and scorching hot scenes, something Parker does so well in her books.” Joyfully Jay

In response to a reader who complained that a gay couple was moving in across the street and wanted to know what he could do to improve the quality of the neighborhood.

You could move.” –Abigail Van Buren, “Dear Abby”
