This week’s dilemma is as follows:

You have a beloved twelve year old son, who is friends with a high profile celebrity. The friendship is an unusual one, but the guy is a mega-celebrity, so it doesn’t occur to you to be worried.

One day your son comes to you, and tells you that he has been molested by this mega-star. You believe him one hundred per cent, because as far as you are concerned, your son has no need to lie.

You bring a civil suit against the celebrity, and he offers you and your son $22m to stop the court proceedings.

What do you do? Do you take the money, thinking you may as well, seeing as it’s a possibility that you may lose the court case anyway, or do you refuse the ‘dirty money’, and fight for justice for your son?

What would you do?

Loose Id Are All About The M/Ms Are They Not?

Because if they really aren’t all about the M/Ms, then they sure could have fooled me.

I used to purchase books quite often from them, and I used to visit them at least once a week, but then I started noticing that they seemed to be publishing mostly male/male stuff. I am no lover of the penis to penis stuff. I don’t get the appeal as a woman. Two guys without the inclusion of at least one female is really not my thing, so I started visiting less. Nowadays, I surf by maybe once a month in the hopes that I wont see a pair of manly chests on the cover of every new release.

Jane made the same point on Twitter. She too considers them to be a mostly M/M epub, so doesn’t bother with them too much either.

Now of course I know that they do publish heterosexual romances, but I happened to surf over there on Sunday, and every single release was an M/M book. Two words: Nail and coffin.

I’m assuming that the M/M stuff sell better than the het stuff, which is why they seem to be over-egging the pudding over there, but it really does put me off visiting too often.

So, are Jane and I the only ones who consider Loose Id to be MMTastic?
