In The Spotlight – Slaying Isidore’s Dragons

I am proud to present the talented author C. Kennedy and his newest release Slaying Isidore’s Dragons on my blog today. His first book Omorphi is listed under my reviewed books. I know this book will be another of his hits. He is an author which writes with such compassion and feeling the characters leap from the pages. The methods in which he writes conveys the actions and events as if seeing them through the character’s eyes. His handling of delicate subject matter is outstanding. Now on to the good stuff…

Declan and Isidore meet at the beginning of their senior year at a private academy in the United States. Declan is immediately smitten with Isidore and becomes his knight in shining armor. Isidore wants to keep what is left of his sanity and needs Declan’s love to do it. One is beaten, one is drugged, one is nearly raped, one has been raped. They are harassed by professors and police, and have fights at school, but none of it compares to running for their lives. When the headmaster’s popular son attempts suicide and someone tries to assassinate Declan’s mother, they are thrown headlong into chaos, betrayal, conspiracy, allegations of sexual coercion, even murder. And one of them carries a secret that may get them killed.

About Cody Kennedy

Raised on the mean streets and back lots of Hollywood by a Yoda-look-alike grandfather, Cody doesn’t conform, doesn’t fit in, is epic awkward, and lives to perfect a deep-seated oppositional defiance disorder. In a constant state of fascination with the trivial, Cody contemplates such weighty questions as If time and space are curved, then where do all the straight people come from? When not writing, Cody can be found taming waves on western shores, pondering the nutritional value of sunsets, appreciating the much maligned dandelion, unhooking guide ropes from stanchions, and marveling at all things ordinary.

James Franco’s Interview

I love this interview of James Franco. It is so straightforward, but I think he is being human and himself.

Straight James Franco Talks to Gay James Franco

 Society put labels on men without warrant for acting with emotion, love, sensitivity and caring toward other men. Society places men in a bracket with some label if they admired or desire things of beauty or luxury or things a woman might. The media shows this to be true by how they use labels and then the masses follow suit.

Why does society do this? To make us conform to a set standard that someone conceived long ago, as what it is to be a man. A standard of psychological ideals making men into less human to be more easily controlled through a structure of rigid thinking. It turned men into people afraid to show emotions, afraid to show affection, and afraid to think for themselves not only about sexuality but also what makes us human.

I, for one, believe it is time we threw these conceptions out and all just acted human.

Am I Real – Chapter 1 on Wattpad

I’m always learning and this time I learned how to post on a place called Wattpad.  I posted a promo for my book, Am I Real, that includes the first chapter.

Go there and read the first chapter.

I recently edited Am I Real again.  It is better than before and can be downloaded again if purchased before so that you have the best copy available at either Smashwords or Amazon (using the update ability from Amazon).

Am I Real – Profile: Horus Theron

Horus Theron is not your normal hero.  He is of small stature, muscular for his size but not model proportioned.  His build is for grace and speed instead of brute force.  He sports a cropped haircut that stands up like a brush and sometimes slips back to his Southern Virginia accent.
Rus, to his friends, is calm and not emotional most times.  He is as likely to ignore you as to talk to you even if you catch his eye.  He is shy and introverted.  Except for his work, he is nearly a shut in.
He is a killer to most around him.  Cold, tactically thinking and quick to do his deed, Rus doesn’t pull punches and thinks nothing of some actions.  He will kill any living thing without any remorse if it tries to harm him and the ones he loves or cares for.  He sees himself as a Protector and a person that solves problems for the Elite, organizations and businesses.  He belongs to a special group known as the Trinity Order of Blood.  They are nearly untouchable.
He was good at his job and eventually became of high station and a member of the specialized group.  He also was well paid.
What makes him a hero, you might ask?  Well, he does the other things that make him loved and nearly worshipped by others.
Rus had more hopes than credits though.  He wanted to fix up the bombed out slums, where others still lived, but in the current economy, even his money would do little there.  He set up a company and began buying the surplus military ration packs and other gear civilians could use.  This he took to the slums and other low class areas to distribute.
Rus’s personal life is a mess.  In his time, females are a precious thing.  If you find one, usually, they are chipped and possessed by the Elite.  The few females he has known have run from him when finding out his profession.  Because of his dislike of androids, he won’t have one of those, even when offered as a gift.  They are not real.
Rus stays alone in his small house outside the city.  His few hobbies include bowling, gardening, herbal medicine and weaponry.  His loneliness is starting to get to him as much as the killing of these newer androids called SPUs.
When Rus finds a female, in the bowling alley that he frequents, with two males that wish to hurt her, will his protectiveness comes forward?  Will he ignore her as he had others in the past?  Is she going to lead him into something that can’t be possible for either of them?  Can he let go of his past to live in this new present?
These are the questions to be answered in “Am I Real,” the book mentioned in USA Today, Happy Ever After section.Get your copy today at the links below.

Horny Hump Day in Celebration of Am I Real

As many of you know, my first book, Am I Real, was mentioned in the USA Today section called Happy Ever After.

In celebration of this, I’m offering a peek at one of the hot scenes.  I know three lines isn’t much, but you need to book to really get the entire story of Horus and Faith and the question, Am I Real.

These line take place when she has just woke him while she explored his body.  Her innocence is evident in the scene it is taken from in the story.  (This is actually four sentences in the book.)

Faith looked at the organ, touched her finger to the tip where the slit was, pulling a drop of his fluid from it; watched the glass-like, sticky, slick strand extend from it before finally breaking. Softly blowing on his erection, she witnessed more fluid come from the tip. The sight of it was breathtaking and lovely.
