Welcome to Novelspot.
If you're anything like us (and what are the odds of that?) you love to read. One morning in 2004, we spent a long time scouring the web for sites like this, and couldn't find any, so we had to make it ourselves. Keep in mind, we're essentially lazy, and if such a site already existed, we'd still be in bed with our favorite books. We're always open to a good, opinionated author who loves to review books, so if you want to review for us, send your sample review, CV and query to let us know. Welcome to Novelspot, the book-lovers paradise.

Review: 

This is a graphic rendering of a favorite but short lived series: Serenity by Joss Whedon (of Buffy fame) is a boon to any graphic novel’s library or even those who love Science Fiction meets Westerns in a good way. Those Left Behind covers the first three books that came out in this format in one hard cover book.

It covers beautifully the actors who played these characters while they act giving you a real sense of the story being played out. There is also a section at the end with back drops on how the world building for the story was done. Delightfully written, Well drawn, and beautifully produced. I only wish I had found this sooner. Hope to collect the rest of them of a series ended much too soon.

Review: 

For those of us who never really got past any high school grade science, this book can be helpful in understanding how the fictional universe of science compares to the reality of the Scientific world.

Written in an engaging style, the writer Steven D. Bloom is refreshing in that he does not put down any of the shows, movies, or stories used as examples in his books. He also presents journals by scientists that speak of the various science explored in everything from Time Travel, to Warp Bubbles, to Super Human Powers and all in between. Since the book is primarily focused on Physics and Astronomy, this is not for those looking for Biological, Geographical, or Medical Science. Though he does touch on them a bit where they bisect with the above topics.

As a writer who loves Science Fiction and Science in general. I do try to ‘study’ what I can but would be the first to admit, my knowledge is behind even that of High School. Thanks to this book, maybe I have in a small way, gotten to the Eleventh grade. Maybe someday with reading writers like him, I might even graduate.

Review: 

A desperate woman being thrown out of a medical center. Where she has dedicating her life that the science the center depends on. She is also betrayed by the man she thought she would marry.

Word of her work got out to the press. The Public is in an uproar and after her, saying she is unethical. The inspiration for the story is straight from much of the work done today on growing cells and simple limbs such as ear lobs, tissues and in time, hopefully, organ transplants. The goal is to make those that can be compatible with humans to aide people in healing and reduce rejection that so often happens in such medical efforts between humans. Yet many people only have visions of Monsters from bad horror films. Ideas that their imagination suggest could form from such mergers.

Gabriel Born offers a different view and a deeply engaging story of a women considered disabled and different, who is also handed an incurable disease and fighting for a way to survive. She take an incredible and terrifying leap of need, to find something she never imagined could be true. A story of true love and transformation. One of the best I have read in a very long time.

I've been writing romances and erotica for over a decade. One of the first things I've noticed is some of the cringe-inducing terminology for various sexy body parts. I read a Huffington Post article by Andy McDonald about the most embarrassing sexual phrases from romance novels. Those words included the following for male and female aroused sexual organs:

Turgid shaft
Throbbing manhood
Pulsing core
Fiery slit
Molten need
Hot, wet sheath

Terms for sexual intercourse and orgasm weren't much better:

Lesbian fiction isn't nearly as popular as it should be. I've written lesbian erotica for Cleis Press, Xcite Books, and Torquere before Torquere folded. This form of fiction feels natural for me because I'm bisexual. I like creating intriguing, playful, and vivacious women – the type I'm attracted to. My first foray into lesbian erotica was my story "Neighbors", which was published by Torquere in 2009. Charlotte and Lina (no last names) are roommates who look so much alike they could be mistaken for twins. But these aren't ordinary women.

Her m/m erotic medical thriller Roughing It is a sexy cross between The X Files, The Andromeda Strain, and Outbreak. Read her short erotic story Babes in Begging For It, published by Cleis Press. You will also find her new novel No Restraint at Amazon. Enjoy a good, sexy read today.
