Happy Father's Day


Dan Payne (star of Battlestar Galactica and Mulligans) is modeling a DILF t-shirt from the fantastic (and sorely missed) Otter Fashion.  http://www.otterfashion.com/ is out of commission at the moment, but if you click the link, it'll take you to an avid fan's Facebook page.  "Like" them in order to find out about their new designs, now available at various other internet outlets.  This company has some fantastic T-shirts, swimwear and accessories.  And the models ain't half bad either.


If you haven't seen Mulligans, it's definitely worth a viewing.  The story revolves around two college buddies who come home for a vacation and end up stumbling into an emotional tangle neither of them ever expected.  I won't go into a lot of detail in case you're one of those people who doesn't like to know the plot before it unfolds before you on the screen, but I will say there are some family tensions that revolve around issues of the closet and affairs of the heart.  The acting, particularly from Payne, Thea Gill and Charlie David, is top notch.  Charlie David (Dante's Cove) wrote the surprisingly touching, believable and bittersweet script.  The movie had the potential to sway too far into melodrama, but the balance it just right, capturing both the gentle rhythms of vacations at the lake and the emotional turmoil of secrets and betrayal. 

And finally, a couple of (very different) book suggestions:

  

Ariel Tachna's ebook Her Two Dads is a romantic two-men-and-a-baby story about a man forced to choose between the child he loves and the the man who could be the love of his life.  5% of the proceeds from teh sale of this book go to The Family Equality Council and COLAGE, organizations working to secure full civil rights for gay families.  Available in ebook formats from Dreamspinner Press.

Daddies (Cleis Press, edited by Richard Labonte) is an anthology containing a full range of erotic stories about all kinds of daddies (biological and othewise).  Dive in, there's something for everyone.  My short story "For Luck" is included in this anthology:  There are significantly less than six degrees of separation when a smalltown father and son's sexual paths cross. Who's your daddy?  Available in paperback or kindle.

So Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there.  (And to all the Daddies too...)
