Yes, it’s finally here. The US Supreme Court is hearing two major cases this week – first on California’s Proposition 8 (that particularly nasty piece of legislation which took marriage equality away from people to whom it had already been granted) and tomorrow DOMA itself.
I’ve banged on rather a lot about equal marriage. About the importance of having the right to use that word, of having the right to stand up before your friends and family – and God, if you believe – and affirm your love to Mr or Mrs Right, whoever you are. But it’s about more than that. This is the real story of why equal marriage matters.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the long awaited day has arrived! I received a parcel in the post containing the single collection of sexiest things I have ever seen in my life. The first paperbacks of What He Wants. To celebrate, I’m hosting a giveaway of not one or two but five copies over on Goodreads. Entry closes March 23rd so hurry on over and sign up!
For those too impatient to wait, the book is available now from Createspace.
It takes a lot to make me feel sick. I’ve got a pretty strong stomach; I’ve drank from a stream while hiking, gone further uphill and found a rotting sheep carcass in said stream and still held onto my lunch. But something I saw today induced a wave of rolling nausea so great I feel compelled to share it. This video is just over 4 minutes long; I urge you to watch it all, with the sound up. But if you’re really pushed for time, skip forward to 55 seconds in.
You’d have to have been living under a rock not to have heard about the downfall of Cardinal Keith O’Brien, the Catholic church’s highest ranking UK official.
A week ago, four men (three priests; one ex-priest) came forward alleging the Cardinal had behaved inappropriately towards them. The claims dated back to the 1980s. The Cardinal denied the claims at the time. Then a fifth priest emerged, with a claim as recent as 2001. The Cardinal brought forward his retirement plans and resigned immediately. Then, this weekend, the Cardinal confessed.
I also last week signed a contract with RainbowEbooks, and all my titles are now available there. They do frequent promotions and special offers, so it’s a site well worth bookmarking anyway.
And, in the most exciting news in the world…ever… I just approved the paperback of What He Wants. Production is rolling out now, so keep an eye out for details and maybe even a freebie or two in the coming weeks!
