Josh--I have to second Swede's question #1. Dick-lit? Did you coin that phrase? We love it.

I miss Adrien. Ahem.....I really miss Adrien. Will you please bring him back? Please? I have never begged for a character. PLEASE!

Just read Fair Game and really loved it! Dammit but I fall for every character you write! Tucker and Elliot were just great! Do you plan on any more with these 2 characters? I so want to know more about all the other characters in the book too!

Swede--Of course we would have to have Jake back. Adrien loves Jake. In fact, if I was literary dictator, I would just really want to see a whole series from Jake's pov. **tapping foot**

Josh--That was not a question for you. The question: How many books can we expect in the Holmes and Moriarity series? I laughed my butt off (well, not true...about my butt getting smaller :D ).

Do you have any idea how many times you made me cry reading the Adrien English books? :sunny:

Sorry, that one is rhetorical. I'll have real questions once I've had time to process.

every book I read of yours I fall heavily for your guys - Griff, then Ethan and Michael in Petit Morts; Tucker and Elliot, Kit and JX, and of course Adrien and Jake - I have just started Dangerous Ground so yet to decide; but I am positive you will hook me again! do you ever have a favourite character or duo?
and is it hard to let go of a series? i want more and more Jake and Adrien, but understand that as an author maybe you have finished the journey with these characters as much as we may want them to go on, and on :albino: (duracell bunny!)

I have been looking at your Goodreads thread and your web site and blog, not that I'm stalkerish at all . . . heck at least I am in Australia, so you are safe..ish Wink and am staggered at how much time you devote to interacting with your fans! how do you find the time? and what are the chances of you coming to visit us once in a while after the chat??

Smooth, Swede. You aren't coming off like a fan-girl at all.

LOL@Swede! Hey, fan-girl, I am getting nearly as bad. I have read the blog, sent an email (which he answered,,,,squeeeee)and am working towards reading everything he's written. I have no trouble with a fav character, though....Adrien.....Adrien all the way. Kit is a very close second.

PostSubject: A quick hello from Josh   Wed Mar 30, 2011 3:17 pm

Barb (not sure what her code name is!) mentioned that I probably ought to drop by the forum and check things out before our chat next month -- which I'm looking forward to, by the way -- so I did and HOLY MOLY. :-D One thing for sure, I don't have to worry about whether you've read the books or not. You're blazing through them like brush fire.

Anyway, I'm glad you're enjoying the stories so much. I spoke to Jordan and she mentioned what a really terrific time she had hanging out with you all during her chat, so I know it'll be fun. For me anyway :face:

Anyway, thanks for inviting me. And I hope you continue to enjoy the stories.

:bball: Does a hand flap on a ball count as double ?

Ok.... Question time : did you write any POVs for Jake - I would love to read so much of the story through his eyes - when Adrien fainted in book 1; what he was going through at the end of bk 1 obviously hearing Bruce and Adrien "at it"; when he first saw Adriens scars; when he asked Chan to tell Adrien he was in hospital, but not to visit ; and his exact thoughts re: point of no return. When he was sitting in the car outside when Guy spotted him; god - so many great insights, we would love to get!

This isn't really a question, but thought it was an interesting blog by Stacia Kane about m/m relationships in books and why she choose to pull her story from an anthology (wasn't sure where else to post this).

http://www.staciakane.net/2011/03/31/elder-griffin-is-gay/

I guess a question for Josh would be, are you surprised by how much your books appeal to readers outside the gay & lesbian community (for lack of a better way to frame my question)? Personally, I feel a good, well written story is a good, well written story, no more too it. I'm just glad that Swede here, recommended your books so highly and I found my way to them.

Are you finding the m/m aspect is becoming less of a big deal in terms of attracting new readers, or is it still pretty much as it's always been?

Thanks for the link b4v... As I read LUL and the high level of sexual interaction I am left at a loss at wondering how this is not erotic ? Is it simply because it is male/female that it is still considered main stream ? Don't get me wrong - I love the brothers to bits but it just pisses me off that in this day and age people still have issues with male/male story lines - I love Jake and Adrien, Jactor, and every single Josh and Jordan couple I have read in this yuM/My literary journey I am on - and yes the sex and sexual tension is HAWT as HAWT can be, but...... It is the emotional side that really gets me and that has no gender distinction - the love is palpable, the funny lines are hilarious and Christ last night I cried my heart out after having read Wishink Well - I had to keep stopping to get my breath back, and this is a short story for Gods sake!! But I get so hacked off that just because a love story has 2 penises (yes i went there, cos we can do that here Twisted Evil ) it is immediately at a disadvantage in the marketing of it - damn I am tottering in the realms of a dew like post here! But paranormal romance or romance should be marketed and 'judged' on the romance or plot line and not on the sexual orientation of the romancer and romancee Wink <phew!!>

Swede--Barb, your post is brilliant. The way we all devour books, we would have discovered Josh and Jordan years ago if they were marketed better. Amoung other things, Josh has rekindled my love of mystery!

Josh, your characters seem so real. They are beautiful and flawed. And real.

I am looking forward to the next Dangerous Ground book. Not just for the romance, either. Although the way you have depicted the deep feelings of Will and Tay is enough reason to read them, their adventures are so much fun.

I also would beg.....beg, I say...for more Adrien and Jake. We are all pimping your books like crazy because you are the best. heart

Seriously Shay I still have an inner girlie squeal when I see that Josh has posted on here! I stalk/follow his Q&A thingy on goodreads too and am really biting my tongue by not blabbing about him coming here for a chat ... But, really, do we want to share?
Ask Lisa, si / no ... Hell no!!!
