A Girl walks home alone at night – Iranian vampire Western noir

Had a hardcore Hipster Melbourne Moment (TM) on Saturday night. We went to Fed Square and saw A Girl walks home alone at Night (2014) at ACMI cinemas. It was aces! The framing and soundtrack, the pace and story were great and I can’t do justice to it with words, you just have to see it and know that it was 99 minutes of grouse. And there’s a cool cat. An actual pussy cat who makes it even better. We then celebrated this filmic magic by indulging in Hipster Melbourne Moment (TM) 2.0 when we got burgers from a food truck. That’s what all the cool kids in Melbourne do, get food from vans. We had a few quick ones at Young & Jackson’s pub across the road and admired the saucy nekkid painting of Chloe. Pretty great Saturday night.

Ada Cambridge Biographical Prose Shortlisting update

wil lit fest

I didn’t win but I’m now published so I’m a bona fide writer, obvs. I’m on page 82, hard copies are available at the various Hobsons Bay Libraries or on Smashwords – https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/442820

My piece is titled Love, Death, Art, Gelato.

Me, we

A co- worker tells me she doesnʻt do social networking, if she wants to know the family gossip, sheʻll ring her 94 year old mother. Mum gets facebook status updates from all of the family and thus knows who is getting married, having babies, etcetera. She was also signed up to Blendr by one of her nephews. I laughed in my co- workers’ face when she told me. ʻDo you know what Blendr is?’ I asked. ʻI do now. She gets date requests from 101 year old men.’ We both squawked with cackles at that. Love is blind, ageless too.

BEATS REVIEW – HARDROCK HARLOTS – BOOK 2 – KENDALL GREY

Beats (Hard Rock Harlots, #2)Beats by Kendall Grey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Just plowed this intense and cool story of Jinx and Toombs!!! Itʻs now 6:37am and I have to catch a few hours sleep before work. I loved the human insights, the rip your – face – off intensity of Toombs, who could put more meaning into a barely raised brow than most men can with a Shakespearean soliloquy… Iʻm mad for this book in the best possible way. Kendall gave it to me raw and I fucking loved every minute of it!!! Iʻll write more of an actual review later, I’ve gota crash right now, lusting after Toombs but oddly sated ;P

#TOOMBS #TEAMTOOMBS #bookboyfriend #drummergirlhitsitharder

I like Jinx, she is the opposite of Letty, her band mate, in many ways. Where Letty is brash and bluster, Jinx is reserved and thoughtful of everything going on around her. She may not light up a room like Letty but her slow burn intensity and laser like focus on what she wants, Toombs and the great back beats of the upcoming album, make her a show stopper nonetheless. She cares about her friends, her family and herself. She goes after what she wants with determination but doesn’t destroy everyone and everything to get where she wants to be. I love this book the best of the 3 but it’s my Toombs bias and also the fact that I read this one first as it was gifted to me for my birthday. I have recommended it to co workers (at the library) and have gifted the series to six friends so far. It is not everyone’s shot of absinthe with a double vodka chaser. The warnings placed at the start of each book in this series are legit and not just to garner attention. If you have to check urban dictionary for some of the acronyms mentioned in the warning disclaimer then you should probably stay away from this series, it is hard core, it is niche, and filthy good writing. There is a lot of erotica on Amazon, much of it not worth the the time and effort of the whispernet delivery. The Hard Rock Harlots series gives it to you with both barrels and doesn’t relent, makes no quibbling apologies for its rawness, and has its readers in thrall forevermore because of this ballsiness. Long live The Rock, those who make it, those who love it, and those who live and die for it.

NOCTURNES REVIEW – HARD ROCK HARLOTS – BOOK 3 – KENDALL GREY

Nocturnes (Hard Rock Harlots, #3)Nocturnes by Kendall Grey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I hate Rax Wrathbone. If I was to meet him I would punch him in the throat and then in the cock. I would probably kick him a few times as he hit the ground. Having said that, I love this book, this series, this author. I would recommend this series and have recommended it to co workers (at the library) and have gifted the series to six friends so far. It is not everyone’s shot of absinthe with a vodka double chaser. The warnings placed at the start of each book in this series are legit and not just to garner attention. If you have to check urban dictionary for some of the acronyms mentioned in the warning disclaimer then you should probably stay away from this series, it is hard core, it is niche, and filthy good writing. There is a lot of erotica on Amazon, much of it not worth the the time and effort of the whispernet delivery. Hard Rock Harlots series delivers believable characters, steamy hot sex scenes that will melt your kindle, hot book boyfriends you wish were real, sexy and strong women who may not be perfect but make the best of what they are and do so without apology. If you are not into the rock and roll lifestyle and all the debauchery it entails then this series is not for you. If you love your fictional sex kinkier than a cheap garden hose then this series with its memorable characters, emulatory sex scenes, and heartbreakingly good plotlines then Strings, Beats, and Nocturnes are for you. You may like Rax the main man of Nocturnes. I don’t, but if he could take a couple of (deserved) hits from me for being a less than savoury character then I would shake his hand and take him to the pub. I would end up dancing on the table with his hot girlfriend, Eve, and all would be right with the world.

STRINGS REVIEW – HARD ROCK HARLOTS – BOOK 1 – KENDALL GREY

Strings (Hard Rock Harlots, #1)Strings by Kendall Grey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

grouse! Gifted it to six mates at the start of Dec 2013 (to coincide with the Nocturnes release date)

I love strong women who may not have all the answers and get kicked in the teeth by life more than once but pull themselves up by their bootstraps and soldier on. Let’s face it, life is pretty much a gutpunch for most people, most of the time. The little things must be made sacred, the only glue that holds our souls together sometimes is formed of small opportunities. Letty Dillinger, main moll of this novel, tries to embrace the small moments when they present themselves. She is funny, a great friend, sexy, loyal, strong, and honest. I would definitely go out drinking with her to see what kind of crazy adventures we could have. I love this book, this series, this author. I have recommended it to co workers (at the library) and have gifted the series to six friends so far. It is not everyone’s shot of absinthe with a double vodka chaser. The warnings placed at the start of each book in this series are legit and not just to garner attention. If you have to check urban dictionary for some of the acronyms mentioned in the warning disclaimer then you should probably stay away from this series, it is hard core, it is niche, and filthy good writing. There is a lot of erotica on Amazon, much of it not worth the the time and effort of the whispernet delivery. This series delivers on plot, characters, and dirty, hot sex scenes. The Hard Rock Harlots series is not for the faint of heart or those who want to judge the choices that others make and can live with. It is an intense, pornagraphically intimate view of life on the road in a band in your carefree, hedonistic, twenties. And thank the rock gods for that!
