Anybody Else Watching Thai BL Drama?

Thailand's erotic Boys Love TV dramas are a hit with Indonesians, gay and  straight | South China Morning Post

I’ve been quarantining in my home, including working from home for almost a year now (since March). After going through every gay love story on Netflix, I found this interesting saga called, “The Untamed”. Wow, did it open my eyes to Asian boys love stories (BL). I’d watched BL in anime form before, but this is way better, believe me. I’m also used to sub-titles, which helps.

Anyhow, back to the Thai BL dramas. There are hundreds of these. They range anywhere from sweet high school romances to murder mystery romance with some really hot men thrown in.

Some of my favorites are (in no particular order)
1. TharnType
2. 2Gether
3. Manner of Death

Finding these to watch can take a bit of sleuthing, but most can be found on YouTube. Otherwise, there are apps that show them: LineTV, Tencent Video or Viki by Rukuten.

Let me know if you watch any of them and what you thought.

Oh, I do have some books coming out, so stay tuned:)

I Love Soccer for the Hot Men…and Action

Hot World Cup Soccer Players - ItalyMy boyfriend loves soccer. And since I love sports in general, I’ve been watching the World Cup with him this year. I knew soccer players were hot, I mean, who hasn’t drooled over pictures of David Beckham? But wow, it seems there is a never-ending line up of man candy in the World Cup. For ball players (pun intended), these guys aren’t your typical athletes. No, they have everything a lover of Yaoi and M/M Romance looks for in hotness, don’t they? From the long hair and lean bodies to the strong jawlines and ripped abs we all like to see on our book covers. These guys are beautiful. Which of course, gives me an idea for a story. I wonder how many of those hot guys are gay? Oh my…the locker room…the shower…I need to stop right there, LOL.

I am loving the actual game as well, don’t get me wrong. The nail-biting shoot outs going on right now in the next round are just about killing me. I can’t seem to leave my couch, not even to write or draw! I just wish the teams I’m cheering for would quite losing:( Like Mexico today or Italy. Damn. At least I still have the US team for now. Oh well, no matter who wins, we still have man candy to watch:)

Three new M/M Romance Stories Planned

Lucian - Gay and M/M Romance CharacterI’m on a roll! I’ve got some new stories planned and one is inspired by the dude I drew on the left there. That’s the main character for my next full-length novel, Finding Human and his name is Lucian. I’ve also added him to my art page. The next one, Night Swimming is a short story I plan on doing for a fun free read. And the last one, The Bonds of Family, will be my third and last book in my In Life and Blood trilogy. I just hope I can hold myself to these dates…
