Book Trailer for REVIVAL, erotic romance by M.K. Gilher


https://youtu.be/YWTWoY8Y1Jo Check out this awesome trailer for my debut novel, REVIVAL. Thanks to Nicole Angela for making it for me. I'm speechless. It's perfect for Jacade and Ivy. Look for this scene in the vid: I carefully turn the knob and peek in. His hands are on the wall of the shower, his head leaning on his forearms. I instantly recognize the intimate and introspective ballad playing from his phone. "Heal" by Tom Odell. The water runs down his back, over his firm ass, and down into the tub. For a moment, I just take him in. Purple bruises are appearing on his torso. He has those bruises because of what Viktor said to him in the cage about me. He completely lost it. Why would a man who barely knows me defend me so violently? I tiptoe into the bathroom and peel off my clothes, dropping them on the floor....

What's Your Totem?

Melissa Price
What’s Your Totem? by Melissa Price Have you ever had the occasion to keep noticing something? Perhaps it’s an item or an animal that appears wherever you travel or whenever you visit a particular place. This phenomenon surged into my life last week at the Southern California coast. While it wouldn’t be entirely unusual to view a dolphin, a seal, a sea lion, or even a shark in those waters, would it make you think if you saw only one of those species – repeatedly? How about continually? Whether I was walking, standing on the beach, or looking out from the pier, a seal came to greet me. Daytime or night, regardless of the spot where I found myself, seals appeared. Aptly named, Seal Beach was where I had my sendoff encounter with the largest of any I had seen. Strolling along the pier on a clear cool evening, I leaned...

The Book Thief

b2ap3_thumbnail_Book-Thief.jpg
  The Book Thief is a 2013 American war drama film based on the novel of the same name by Markus Zusak, directed by Brian Percival and written by Michael Petroni, with a musical score composed by John Williams. The film stars Emily Watson, Geoffrey Rush, Sophie Nélisse, Ben Schnetzer, Nico Liersch, and Joachim Paul Assböck.  The movie The Book Thief has been called one of the worst World War II movies ever made. I disagree. We all have seen movies that play in Nazi Germany before and during the war. There are others where Jews have been saved by Germans who endangered their own lives.  What intrigued me about this film was the young main character, a nine-year –old –girl, Liesl, played by Canadian acting novice Sophie Nélisse, an exceptionally beautiful young girl, who also trained in ice skating for the Olympics  as I heard in an interview. Her acting...

Her...and HIM




          No lover for Valentine's? No soul mate in sight?                                                       Forget about relationships and the heartbreak that goes with it! Get a robot! Robots have been with us since before Star Wars. They have been cleaning, repairing and some more sophisticated bots will soon be available to cook for us, do the laundry, even babysit or tend to our elderly parents. Last year, a NJ based company introduced a talking, touch-sensitive robot “companion”. A Japanese robot developer, H. Ishiguro, in Kyoto who also teaches at Osaka University created a silicone doppelgänger so that he can interact on the internet in two places. “You believe I’m real”. If you can’t tell the difference, does it matter in the end whether you’re interacting with a human or machine?   Welcome to the future of dating, living, loving and companionship! The movie HER (directed by Spike Jonze) opens a window into this future...
