Hello everyone! Today you are getting a long distance post as I am now vacationing in New Orleans! Yay!  Actually, I am technically accompanying my husband on a business trip, but since I am not the one who has to work, I am counting it as a vacation!  My plan is to eat, drink, and be merry accompanied by bouts of sight seeing and sitting on my butt reading by the pool.

So while I am getting fat on beignets and Bananas Foster, I have taken good care of you guys and set you up with a great week.  Some highlights include a review, interview, and giveaway on Monday with Edmond Manning, author of the absolutely amazing book King Perry.  You guys, I went CRAZY for this one and I am thrilled to get a chance to talk to Edmond about it here on the blog.

Cat Grant is also bringing a giveaway as part of her blog tour for her new rent boy story, Priceless. And on Thursday we are kicking off the Hop Against Homophobia, a giant blog hop featuring over 200 blogs by reviewers, authors, and other supporters of m/m romance.  Plus lots of great reviews.  So here are the details:
