Sins of the Son Blog Tour #6: GLUTTONY and GREED

Image
Hi all. Welcome back to my own humble little blog for the final stop on my Sins of the Son blog tour. It’s been a wild ride through Pride, Envy, Sloth, Wrath, Lust… leaving just Gluttony and Greed to explore. If you’ve made it here, thank you so much for sharing the trip with me.
I’m combining these last two sins into one post because I really have very little to say about gluttony, and almost too much to say about greed. That might be because greed I think is the one sin you can’t excuse. Pride is essential for our survival and growth. Envy is a natural response, to be processed rather than resisted. ‘Sloth’ is sometimes necessary for self care. Wrath… is a dangerous one for sure, but processing our anger in a healthy, productive way also empowers us to right some of life’s wrongs, big and small. And lust? My tolerance for sex-shaming has long expired.
Gluttony’s a tough one because it can be interpreted in so many ways. Too much of a good thing is bad for you? No kidding. Literally…

Sins of the Son Blog Tour #3: SLOTH

Aghast! The tech daemons have struck over at Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words, sabotaging day 3 of my Sins of the Son blog tour, and my post dedicated to one of my favourite sins, Sloth!

WHAT’S TAKING SO LONG? ARE YOU EVEN WRITING? HELLO?
Welcome to day three of my Sins of the Son blog tour. Thanks for joining me, and thanks so much to Melanie and the team at Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words for hosting me today – where the theme is… sloth.
Yes, I know. Sloth? Others get exciting sins like wrath, envy, pride, and lust. I get sloth? Really, Christian?
Okay, I know sloth might not seem like the most exciting sin, but besides being a favourite sin of many (you know who you are), I decided to make this the ‘sloth’ post in honour of a question Melanie asked me in…

SINS OF THE SON

Abandoned by his werewolf lover, the only thing Reylan wants is to return to his vampire life of blood and beautiful boys. It's a solid plan, until his first meal as a single man tries to kill him.

Hoping to free his young would-be assassin from the religious zealots that sent him, Reylan enlists the help of Iain Grieg, a charismatic priest with unsettling knowledge of the night's secrets.

Surrounded by conflicting agendas and an army fuelled by hate, Reylan fights to secure his future, if he can only trust the mysterious priest and bury the ghosts of the past.

10 LGBT Movies from 2017 You Really Should See

Image
As I looked back on the movies I'd seen in 2017, thinking about my favourites, I noticed the atypically high number of queer movies on that list, so many that I felt they kind of justified their own list. There were heavy hitters like Call Me by Your Name and God's Own Country, but also quiet, blink and you miss them treats like Center of My World. In short, it's been a terrific year for LGBT movies, to the point that Norway, France, Finland, South Africa, and Chile all chose LGBT films as their submissions for this year's Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.

Both the South African and Chilean films (The Wound and A Fantastic Woman, respectively) are still in the running for that prize, though having seen neither, I can't really include them here. Nor have I seen the much talked about Tom of Finland, which got a weirdly shortlived release in Canada and hasn't yet hit streaming. Still, here are 10 new LGBT movies I did see in the past year that you really should t…
