I Want to Believe

Ah yes, our classic question, once again.

Is it Science Fiction Romance?

I Want to Believe, the latest X-Files motion picture is about to be released. Are you an X-Filite, like I am? What intrigued you the most about the show? The never-ending quest for the truth about extraterrestrial presence on Earth, or the relationship between FBI partners Fox "Spooky" Mulder and Dana Scully? I considered myself a huge fan of the series, but recent reviews dished out a tidbit that I missed somewhere along the way and left me open-mouthed. Mulder and Scully had a child? OMG! How did I miss that plot twist?

I hope to see the movie when its released. Although hints reveal the Mulder and Scully still won't find the truth that's out there, I wonder what new developments might happen between them? So, is the X-Files a Science Fiction Romance? In my book, you bet!

Computers can endanger health

Apart from eye strain and finger strain, and the fact that using the damn thing is compulsive, watch your step!!!! I put down my laptop to answer the phone, tripped on the lead for the mouse, because I don't like the touch screen cursor and went flying! Blood all over the place, broken arm, broken leg - okay not broken arm and leg but there was blood. And there will be bruises since I landed flat out on the floor. Hoisted myself up and staggered to the phone only to hear a ship's siren and an automated voice saying - This is your captain speaking. One advantage of automated calls - you can say what you like and they can't hear you.
Oh good grief - I hope I hadn't just won a cruise.

The Consolation Prize


Well, The Consolation Prize has a tentative release date with Loose-Id of August 5th. Yippee!!

Isn't the cover great!
Thanks again to Dawn and the crew for help with the blurb!
You are invited to spend four days at Sunset Spa, Washburn Hall. Accommodation and nourishment provided. All spa treatments included.’
It should have been a big thrill—an all expenses paid trip, but it was the topping on Chloe’s really bad night. She’d lost her promotion, destroyed a pair of designer pumps and given in her notice. Washburn Hall, where her family died, was the last place she wanted to go. But Chloe is pulled towards the spa by forces beyond her control.

Luka is handsome, rich and gay. That’s what he’d like everyone to think. Luka is a Trueblood, a fertile vampire. Not a bad thing, unless being staked out in the sun and fried to a crisp is appealing. But his secret is out. Shanghaied into stud service, he’s chained up in a basement.

Chloe wonders if the gorgeous naked man in chains is part of the all-inclusive package. Free him and run. Simple enough. After all, the only thing between Chloe and the man of her dreams is a few horny vamps, a decent set of bolt cutters and a step-grandmother from hell. Piece of cake.

Who said the trip to the spa wouldn’t be fun?
