Hi, friends and readers:
Does everyone like this morning’s photo post as much as I do? Yeah, I have a liking for guys who lie in the sand in their boardshorts, displaying their armpits. Can you blame me?
I’m up early again this morning. At seven AM I was already strolling the beach as the sun came up over the Intracoastal Waterway. I swam in the Gulf and took a shower on the back patio. Now I’m finishing breakfast and getting ready to write. What a great way to start the day.
My boyfriend and I have much to do today. After I finish writing this morning, we’ll visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming, maybe a little basketball, too. We’ll visit Home Depot to buy mulch for the patios, then hit the booze store for wine and other essentials. Tonight, we’ll host two friends for dinner, sunset and Scrabble. It’ll all be fun, I know.
Traffic-wise, yesterday was the second busiest day I’ve ever had on the blog, since it began in December 2008. About 2,400 people stopped by to view the photos and read my posts. Thanks to everyone for stopping by. I received an e-mail from the folks at gaysurfers.net, thanking me for the number of referrals they’re getting from my blog. This is a organization formed by gay surfers, for gay surfers. You can check out their site by clicking on the link in my blogroll titled “Gay Surfers Association”.
If you follow this blog, you know that Noble Romance Publishing has just released my new anthology titled Flawed Boys. Right now, it’s number one on Noble Romance’s bestseller list. People seem to like it.
Tomorrow, Noble Romance is sponsoring a “Launch Party” to showcase all its new July 2011 releases. Eight Noble Romance authors will appear on the Noble Romance readers loop on Yahoo, each for an hour. There will be prizes given away each hour during the Launch Party. I’ll appear for an hour at four PM. I’ll sponsor a few simple contests, with free Martin Delacroix books as prizes. Noble will give away $10 gift certificates, too. And everyone who stops by and makes a post during the Launch Party, will be eligible to win a free Kindle from Noble Romance.
Here’s the link to the Yahoo Group:
You’ll need to joint this group to make a post and make yourself eligible for prizes. You can do this now, or at any time during the Launch Party. Someone at Noble Romance will be online to approve new members immediately, so go ahead and join, so you can participate. It’ll be fun!
Okay, it’s time for Martin to get busy. Everyone have a nice Friday. The weekend’s here, so have some fun.
