    Like blogger MA Church, I got so bored with reg boy/girl erotica and love stories. Reading about the boys opened my world and imagination to a whole new world. Not only was it hot reads but I learned so much about the gay community that I never knew existed. I’ve read some amazing writers andi glad there’s yet another place for us to spread the word on how amazing some of them are.

    I was not able to post on all the authors sites (if they did not have an option of Name for how to post), but I really enjoyed reading all the posts, some amazing stories out there of how people started writing, not to mention all the new books you end up adding to the “to buy” and/or “to-read” pile!!!!

    Thanks for organizing the hop, I’ve seen the reviews via Serena’s posts on Twitter, Lena’s on Goodreads so I have the web site and blog on my favorites list now!

    All the best on the new site, I’ll definitely be following!


    • Diane A – I’ve included your comment on my blog and you are in the drawing for my ebook give-a-way…thanks for participating and sharing your thoughts!


  22. Thanks for putting this all together. Loving meeting all these people! I just got my very first Kindle for my birthday in June — it’s gonna fill up fast!

    Thank you guys so much for organizing this hop! It’s been a wonderful experience to meet other authors and read about their motivations for writing. I’ve learned a lot and have bookmarked many stories for future reading. I wish you guys the best in your site debut–but I have no doubts on that front. You guys definitely know what it’s all about!

     /  August 26, 2012

    I read Jon Michaelson’s blog memories and had near tears in my eyes. I, too, was a voracious reader in my youth, and went crazy when I found books that had gay protagonists. Finally, characters that I could relate to, without having to universalize anything! These books are golden to me, now, and always.

    • Thanks, Jim. I’m humbled that you were touched by my blog posting and feel greatful for the opportunity to share my impressions and influences with others. Thanks again, Jon M

  36. Hi. I’m glad to see a new review site. I read so much and only have a limited income that I like to have a peek at what others think about something I’m interested in. I also LOVE BLOG HOP’S!! :) Have a great day.
