Carlisle, from We Three

I said in my author's notes for Chapter 2 that I had to fire PFac as my Carlisle. :) I just could not write him in that chapter. LOL Here, my Carlisle:

Latter Days

The second movie recommendation given to me by philomina is Latter Days.

This may be one of the best movies I've seen; and I may have even liked it more than Shelter or Brokeback Mountain. For personal reasons, it resonated strongly with me. I think it was written, directed and acted in a way that wasn't (if you'll pardon the expression) over the top. The directing is beautifully done; the acting is heartfelt and passionate; and the writing tells a very real story, one that I'm sure has played out many times in real life.

Boy Culture

Couple of movie recs for you, which were passed along to me by a reader, philomina. I thoroughly enjoyed them both.

The first is Boy Culture:

I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's about much more than just the life of a hustler; this guy is deep, and may even be a romantic at heart. Much more to him than meets the eye. Highly recommended.

You've already seen pictures of Jack and Ashton, in the slideshow at the top of the page. Here are some more, as well as a couple pictures of Jacey.

Jack will get his own spinoff in mid to late October! Stay tuned for updates on the new fic, "Deep Dish".

Readers' playlist

When I posted chapter 28, I asked for readers to tell me what songs made them think of Over The Top. Many of you generously shared your opinions, and I have compiled the songs into a playlist. Please note, unfortunately I could not locate every suggested song on Project Playlist - if yours is missing, I'm sorry.

Katie's Over The Top playlist

I wanted to share, in one place, the songs that were not only listed in Over The Top, but also the ones that were on my writing playlists and inspired scenes. I'm sure you'll recognize many of them. Hope you enjoy. :)

Over The Top: A Look Back, on TwiSlash Unveiled

About a month ago, Donna from the Twislash Unveiled blog emailed me with a proposition. No, filthy minds, not that kind of proposition. She proposed that, since we were nearing the end of OTT, that she wanted to do a retrospective of the story when the final chapter was posted.

The retrospective was posted last night to coincide with the epilogue of the story; and I am, as ever, grateful and humbled for all the love and support shown by the readers; as well as by Shannon, Val and Bethie, all of whom wrote a contribution for the retrospective.

Twigasm update

So, on Friday night last week, I recorded my guest spot on the Twigasm podcast. It is "in the can", so to speak, and all ready to go. However, the hosts encountered technical issues when recording LauraCullen's spot; and Skype cockblocked their attempt at re-recording! Technology is wonderful, except when it's not. idea when it might be posted! I will keep you updated.
