Summer has arrived like a grandpa’s sack draped across the land. That’s right, it’s hot, humid, and smells questionably of old baby powder. It is a time of year I love despite the miserable weather: a time for summer flowers to bloom, and a time to grill.
Currently, on the ship’s deck, I’ve set up a table, chair and grill, and I’m keeping a steady supply of sausages on rotation along with the hamburger patties. On the table is a bread machine and rice cooker, in case anyone wants them German or Japanese style (bread or rice underneath) while others may choose brioche buns.
I am rereading The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Michael Chabon. Riddle me this, how many Golems are in the book? I’m curious to hear what you think if you’ve read it.
My writing has been in spurts. I’m so close to finishing How Sweet It Is, it is almost painful. The story has evolved from an M/M romance to something else with a queer character I’ve become increasingly fond of as I write it and it’s still, I think, very sweet. In fact, rather than prattling on, I think I need to return to it. Or maybe I’ll write the story with the awakened wolf rogue. I’m undecided.

ABOUT LETO ARMITAGE
Leto Armitage was born in America under a set of circumstances that prophesied that he would one day unite the lost tribes and return the Ever Summer. Somewhere around twelve, he realized he had been left unsupervised and binged too many Arthurian movies in his formative years and that he was just another kid who accidentally got an education while reading above his age level.
By the time he turned old enough to get a passport, he started finding excuses to travel determined to find out what culture, food and women there were to experience. After learning to grill in Oaxaca, do kinbaku in Japan, and being banned from several former Soviet block countries, he returned home to settle down and see what damage he could do locally.
After working jobs including being a short order cook, bodyguarding strippers and professionally doing reader’s advisory for erotica he realized the most reasonable path forward was to become a writer. Today he lives with cats, dogs, and humans who seem to like him despite actually knowing him. He prefers to sit on his back deck, listening to the birds and Barry the Bumblebear bee, while he writes cozy, uplit romance and raunchy erotica.
