First Impressions, pt 1

  Posted by Christoarpher , 27 April 2021 · 80 views

So the second edition of First Impressions   has been out for a few weeks, and I thought I’d talk for a bit about the challenges of writing a story inspired by Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice  that not only involves gay men but is also set in the contemporary world. Since ‘gay’ is an historically bounded sexual and cultural identity, the one g...

It hasn’t quite been a year…

  Posted by Christoarpher , 21 April 2021 · 87 views

It hasn’t quite been a year since I last blogged, but somehow I managed to sit most of the Covid year out. Imagine that. All the trauma, all the drama, and…nothing. From those first heady days of near-hysteria as my husband and I tried to figure out if my husband’s HMO was going to drag him into work on the wards for the first...

Gail Carriger’s Soulless: A Peculiar Sort of Review

  Posted by Christoarpher , 07 May 2020 · 280 views

Gail Carriger published Soulless  in 2009, and I find it hard to believe eleven years have passed. In that time, Soulless  and its sequels have spawned a mighty empire; the Parasol Protectorate has given rise to the Finishing School series, with its elegant threat—Finishing School: when you want someone finished—and the Custard Protocol books, d...

Touching bases

  Posted by Christoarpher , 29 April 2020 · 225 views

So we’re almost out of April and despite my best efforts, I’m not much closer to self-publishing anything. I’m reasonably I certain I updated you all, but in case I didn’t, best beloved, the short version is that Dreamspinner, my publisher since 2011, stopped generating royalties statements and stopped paying me. I have the email tra...

Meet Cute

  Posted by Christoarpher , 10 June 2019 · 370 views

Gather ’round, best beloved, and hear the tale of how your author met his husband. This was back in the day, 1991, when Sacramento Pride-A Commercial Opportunity (all rights reserved, void where prohibited, product may settle during shipping, lather rinse repeat) was called the Lambda Freedom Fair, and had not yet been given over entirely...

Romance Writer Challenge

  Posted by Christoarpher , 10 June 2019 · 351 views

@ChickadeeRevisions tweeted a graphic with a topic a day for June and I thought it would be a great way to introduce myself as a writer to my many new followers and perhaps give my older followers a chance to learn something new about me. Not only that, it might get me back into the habit of semi-regular blogging.https://i2.wp.com/www.christophe...

Toilets

  Posted by Christoarpher , 22 March 2016 · 761 views

So we’re on vacation, the family and I. Savannah. Sure, it’s pretty, although a lot of the shine comes off when you remember that at least in the historic parts it was built by slaves.  Anyway, we’re visiting the Mister’s Ancestral Home for our son’s spring break. The mancub’s not the most stable soul in the w...
