Christmas Special

Seize the Day Podcast

Welcome to Seize the Day Podcast with Natalie Miller-Snell.   Since Christmas is just around the corner, todays show is all about Christmas, pantos, family, and in a special addition, my gorgeous sons join me to take about their favourite Christmas films and stories.

 

Merry Christmas everyone - whether you celebrate or not, I hope you have a truly wonderful time!

 

#Christmas #Panto #Mulled Wine

 

Seize the Day was inspired by my favourite Latin expression Carpe Diem.  I’m very much a “glass is half full” person and I’ve had some great mentors throughout my life, who have offered me invaluable guidance.  We have so many wonders at our fingertips and sometimes we just need a little help, or someone to remind us.

Anna Interviews Shamim Sarif - The Lesbian Review podcast

November 30, 2018

Anna Interviews Shamim Sarif

The Lesbian Review Podcast

Anna is joined by Shamim Sarif today to talk about her movies, the stories behind them and she talks about her family and coming out.

 

The World Unseen by Shamim Sarif

In 1950's South Africa, free-spirited Amina has broken all the rules of her own conventional Indian community, and the new apartheid-led government, by running a café with Jacob her “coloured” business partner. When she meets Miriam, a young wife and mother, their 

unexpected attraction pushes Miriam to question the rules that bind her. When Amina helps Miriam’s sister-in-law to hide from the police, a chain of events is set in motion that changes both women forever. 

The World Unseen transports us to a vibrant, colourful world, a world that divides white from black and women from men, but one that might just allow an unexpected love to survive.

I Can’t Think Straight

Tala, a London-based Palestinian, is preparing for her elaborate Middle Eastern wedding when she meets Leyla, a young British Indian woman who is dating her best friend. Spirited Christian Tala and shy Muslim Leyla could not be more different from each other, but the attraction is immediate and goes deeper than friendship. But Tala is not ready to accept the implications of the choice her heart has made for her and escapes back to Jordan, while Leyla tries to move on with her new-found life, to the shock of her tradition-loving parents. As Tala's wedding day approaches, simmering tensions come to boiling point and the pressure mounts for Tala to be true to herself.

Moving between the vast enclaves of Middle Eastern high society and the stunning backdrop of London's West End, I Can't Think Straight explores the clashes between East and West, love and marriage, conventions and individuality, creating a humorous and tender story of unexpected love and unusual freedoms.

The 5 Best Lesbian Spooky Reads - The Lesbian Review Podcast

October 31, 2018

The 5 Best Spooky Lesbian Books

The Lesbian Review Podcast

Join Tara as she takes over The Lesbian Review Podcast and interviews Sheena who recommends The 5 Best Spooky Lesbian Books (plus two or three more books).

1 Dark Dreamer by Jennifer Fulton 

Publisher: Bold Strokes Books

Available on audiobook: No

Synopsis

The story is about Rowe Devlin, a best selling horror writer who is suffering from a severe case of writer’s block after two failed novels. Looking for a fresh start and perhaps even some inspiration, she buys an old Victorian house in Maine called Dark Harbor Cottage.

Devlin gets a little more inspiration than she was hoping for when she discovers that her new home is haunted by a rather nasty ghost. To make matters more complicated she discovers that her neighbours are identical twins, Phoebe and Cara Temple. Both deeply alluring, Rowe struggles to decide who she finds more attractive.

Together she and Phoebe try to find out why her house is haunted in an effort to put the ghost to rest.

While this is going on the Temple twins are drawn into an FBI investigation of a possible serial killer. Having to face life-changing choices, the sisters are pulled in different directions with the possibility of losing the only real family that they have left, one another.

2 Valley Of The Dead by Crystal M Romero

Publisher: Indie

Available on audiobook: No

Synopsis

Valley Of The Dead by Crystal M Romero is a sometimes hilarious, sometimes scary, sometimes romantic but always utterly charming zombie apocalypse novel. And what makes it even better is that it has a lesbian leading lady.

The novel starts on Gay Pride weekend to the backdrop of much celebration, since the USA was finally celebrating equality. In Silicon Valley Yvonne had just dumped her long time, cheating girlfriend and was feeling free at last. That is, until she gets a frantic phone call from her very gay best friend, Reggie. He and a bunch of drag queens are stuck in his apartment and need rescuing from the zombie apocalypse that has taken hold of the city.

She jumps in her monster of a vehicle, puts on her no nonsense butch approach to the apocalypse and ends up picking up a group of survivors along her route out of town. Eventually the survivors include Reggie and the drag queens, a young couple and two police officers.

One of the officers is Captain Jacqueline Rhodes, a competent, gorgeous woman who leaves Yvonne thinking about more than just survival.

Together, the survivors must overcome a number of challenges, the least of which is getting out of town and find somewhere safe to settle down.

3 Haunting Love by KA Moll

Publisher: Triplicity Publishing

Available on audiobook: Yes

Narrator: Emily Beresford

Synopsis

Haunting Love by KA Moll is the story of Gabe and Anna. Gabe is struggling to come to terms with her wife’s death a few years prior. One of the reasons that she is struggling is that she can see or at least sense spirits but she cannot sense her wife and she has not been able to process her loss.

Anna is new in town, having recently taken a job working alongside Jaina, her friend from college and the main character in Moll’s novel Soul Mates.

Anna is renting a house from Gabe’s father and is having rather disturbing electrical problems. Gabe comes over to see if she can fix the problem and discovers two things. Firstly, she is very attracted to Anna and secondly, the house is haunted.

Anna and Gabe have a less than pleasant encounter, thanks in part to Anna’s fear of being attracted to a woman. Gabe is a handsome woman that stirs her blood and her fears.

Will Gabe be able to overcome her sorrow enough to start a new relationship with Anna and will Anna be able to work through her fear of being who she is enough to act on her attractions? And then there are the ghosts that need to be dealt with too.

4a Keepers Of The Cave by Gerri Hill

Publisher: Bella Books

Available on audiobook: No

Synopsis

Keepers Of The Cave by Gerri Hill is simply brilliant. Hill should write more horror.

Hill should write more horror.

How could I not try a book with this description: The senator’s daughter disappears and FBI agents CJ Johnston and Paige Riley are assigned to a backwaters all-girls school in East Texas near where the senator’s daughter was last seen. They figure that the assignment is a dead-end, but strange things keep happening in the area. Something is lurking in Hoganville.

4b Weeping Walls by Gerri Hill

Publisher: Bella Books

Available on audiobook: No

Synopsis

Weeping Walls by Gerri Hill is the second book with CJ Johnston and Paige Riley as the main characters.

Keepers of the Cave is the first book, so read that review first if you haven’t already.

While I loved Keepers of the Cave, I think that Hill created and even better second book with Weeping Walls.

The story is about an abandoned house in a small town in Houston. Here they find a dead body that is similar to a cold case from fourteen years earlier. The four FBI agents are sent to investigate.

5 Paradox Valley by Gerri Hill

Publisher: Bella Books

Available on audiobook: Yes

Narrator: Abby Craden

Synopsis

Was it an earthquake? A meteor? Or something else entirely?

Running from a marriage proposal in Seattle, Dana Ingram returns to her parents' farm in Western Colorado for a two-week vacation in Paradox Valley. Only a couple of days into it, however, a small earthquake leaves them without power. Cars won't start, batteries don't work, and cell phones are useless.

When a Black Hawk helicopter vanishes off of radar, Captain Corey Conaway is sent in to locate it and its crew - all while keeping the disappearance out of the media. When she meets Dana and her cousin, Butch, Corey solicits their help in the search. But as they travel on horseback through the rugged and remote Paradox Valley, what they stumble upon soon has them running for their lives.

Tara's BONUS Books

6 Castle Wrath by Karin Kallmaker

Publisher: Indie

Available on audiobook: No

Synopsis

A bubbly ingenue falls heir to a remote, storm-drenched castle in a foreign land. All hers - if she can outlast the dangerous and too delicious competing claimant. Strange happenings, a curious (and disconcertingly attractive) caretaker, plus sensuous nightmares may be far more than California girl Brittany Brannigan can handle. 31,000 words.

Brittany's Scottish adventure has a pinch of horror and more than a dash of romance.

7 The Secret Of Sleepy Hollow by Andi Marquette

Publisher: Ylva Publishing

Available on audiobook: No

Synopsis

Tabitha “Abby” Crane, a doctoral student working on her thesis, doesn’t allow herself much time outside academia. Fortunately, she’s managed to squeeze in a research trip over Halloween weekend to the historical society of Sleepy Hollow, New York, where she hopes to uncover new research on the notorious town’s most infamous legend—that of the headless horseman. But she has a personal stake in this trip: Abby’s own ancestor, Ichabod Crane, disappeared mysteriously over two hundred years ago, perhaps at the hands of the ghostly horseman.

Abby has no reason to expect anything of Sleepy Hollow beyond immersing herself in archival collections and enjoying its Halloween festivities, but then she crosses paths with Katie, who makes her head spin and her heart pound. When Katie invites her on a nighttime visit to the glen where the horseman allegedly rides, Abby can’t say no, upending her plans for a quiet research retreat. And when Abby and Katie, who has her own ties to the famous story, find what may be the key to the disappearance of Ichabod Crane all those years ago, love, legend, and magic intermingle, making clear that Sleepy Hollow has plans of its own for yet another Crane.

Lez Geek Out! Gail Carringer

June 28, 2017

Lez Geek Out! 

Bestselling steampunk author Gail Carriger 

Episode 10 

Andi had a long chat with steampunk author Gail Carriger, writer of multiple award-winning steampunkish genre fiction that melds not only steampunk, but paranormal, urban fantasy, comedy and dashes of romance. If you’re not familiar with her work, start with Book 1 of her first series (the Parasol Protectorate), titled Soulless. The protagonist is Alexia Tarabotti, a woman of some means in alt-Victorian England who is also a preternatural – she negates supernatural powers because she has no soul. Hence, “Soulless.” She is thus capable of temporarily rendering vampires and werewolves non-supernatural. 

Carriger is also an aficionado of all things steampunkish and, in particular, the Victorian era. 

She is currently writing another series that is a spinoff of the Parasol Protectorate, The Custard Protocol, and she is writing a series of novellas that feature as main characters her LGBTQ characters from the Protectorate/Protocol world. The first, Romancing the Inventor, features lesbian character Madame LeFoux (and you can see an interview about that Andi did at Women and Words).

Synopsis of Soulless

Alexia Tarabotti is laboring under a great many social tribulations. First, she has no soul. Second, she’s a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Third, she is being rudely attacked by a vampire to whom she has not been properly introduced! Where to go from there? From bad to worse apparently, for Alexia accidentally kills the vampire, and the appalling Lord Maccon (loud, messy, gorgeous, and werewolf) is sent by Queen Victoria to investigate. 

With unexpected vampires appearing and expected vampires disappearing, everyone seems to believe Alexia responsible. Can she figure out what is actually happening to London’s high society? Will her soulless ability to negate supernatural powers prove useful or just plain embarrassing? Who is the real enemy, and do they have treacle tart?

Christmas Special: Les The Night Before Christmas by Kelly Aten

December 24, 2016

Christmas Special

Les The Night Before Christmas by Kelly Aten

Hi there, my name is Kelly Aten and I’m one of those ‘Aspiring Writers’ that gather around the fan fiction sites and Facebook writer’s pages. You know the type, the kind that is also a massive reader and fangirls every time a favorite author likes our comment on Facebook? Anyway I started thinking about the holidays and how everyone has their own rituals and traditions. Maybe your holiday isn’t complete unless you watch your favorite cartoon or movie on TV. In our house we watch the movie Piranha staring William Katt (1995) every Christmas eve. My partner started it more than fifteen years ago with her brother and I’ve now been inducted into the tradition. 

So anyway, television, books, magazines, they swamp us with those ‘traditional’ stories and fables every year but what if you just can’t relate? I started thinking, why can’t I re-write one of those holiday classics? For instance, maybe I could re-write something like ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas. The poem was first published in the Troy Sentinel in 1823 but there is some dispute as to whether it was written by Henry Livingston Jr. or Clement Clarke Moore. No matter who wrote it though, I find it out of date and hard to relate to. And because of the fact that it is nearly two hundred years old I have decided to change the words to something that I think better fits my life, love, and humor. Hopefully you feel the same way.

Here is my spoof on ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas (aka “A Visit From St. Nicholas” or “The Night Before Christmas”)

Les The Night Before Christmas (A Visit From St. Nicolette)

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house,

Not a pet was stirring, cats and dogs all worn out;

The stockings were hung by size left to right,

‘cause my crazy wife takes OCD to new heights

The children were exhausted from game night again,

Dreaming of Minecraft, Nerf, and Kylo Ren

We were in lounge pants, hers black and mine red

Bras both removed when the kids went to bed

When out on the lawn there was a scream and a squee,

We pushed pause on Netflix and went to go see.

Aluminum bat in hand, I stood at the door ready

A memento of softball when my knees were still steady

I peeked through the window and blinked kind of slow

Into a yard that was twinkling with lights on the snow

At first I blamed wine and alcohol blurred eyes,

For the sight of a sleigh with woman inside,

Wearing a red flight suit both voluptuous and svelte,

She was pulled by robot reindeer wearing fake fur pelts.

Both nimble and sure it was a safe bet

That our wintertime guest was Saint Nicolette

“Stay! Dasher, stay! Dancer, stay! Prancer, and Vixen,

“Wait! Comet, wait! Cupid, wait! Donner and Blixen;

She came to the porch and knocked on our door

I ducked down beneath the window unsure

What could she want on such a cold night?

Shouldn’t she be out on a world-circling flight?

Cautious and leery I drained my wine cup,

Then opened the door and said ‘Hey Nic, what’s up?’

With a twinkling and winking of her coal-black eyes

She shouldered a sack and shoved me aside

‘I hear you leave cookies and wine for the elves’

‘I thought I’d come down and see for myself’

‘I also hear that you and the wife have been good’

‘But things in the bedroom have not been what they should

A bundle of toys was slung on her back,

And she looked like a pervert just opening her pack:

Her eyes - how they twinkled! Her dimples how merry,

Her cheeks were like roses, her nose like a cherry;

I suspected she drank as she dashed through the snow

How else to keep warm without a fire’s soft glow?

The first thing pulled out was labeled ‘Santa’s Secret’

The wife, intently watching, said ‘Oh can we keep it?’

‘Batteries Included’ I read aloud to the room

I looked at my wife and we both started to swoon

On and on she withdrew more toys from the bag

Game changers all, the jolliest of swag

A wink of her eye and a twist of her head

Her sack had been emptied and we wanted our bed.

She spoke not a word, but slipped back out the door

Then the sleigh flew away with a Harley Davidson roar

My wife looked and me, and I stared back

Both of us awed at what came from her sack

We may have been good throughout the whole year

We may have celebrated with wine and with cheer

But that Christmas eve we took ‘good’ to new heights

Happy Christmas to all, and to all a great night.
