Fandom to Fantasy Vol 2 @SapphireBooks Review from @kleffnotes

Last year I reviewed the first volume of Fandom to Fantasy from Sapphire Books and this year while at ClexaCon I was able to pick up the second volume. This two volume set was released in 2018 in partnership with ClexaCon and focuses on stories set in convention settings. I enjoyed the first volume and honestly had meant to pick up the second one far earlier than this year. Fans, fan fiction, and fantasy all come together in these stories focuses on queer lovers and their passions for each other and their fandoms.

Alex Priest #3 and #4 Comics Review ( @arledgecomics ) from @kleffnotes

Alex Priest is back! Admittedly Alex Priest has been back for a little while, but I only recently was able to pick up a copy of the third and fourth issues of the series. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Alex Priest, the genderqueer vampire hunter, works for an agency known as Living Corpses that Bite (LC & B), but when it appears that vampires have found a way to do magic they are going to have to team up with their ex, Janelle Garcia from Demon Eradication And Denial (DEAD LLC). The first two issues sucked me in and issues three and four definitely did not disappoint. Continue reading “Alex Priest #3 and #4 Comics Review ( @arledgecomics ) from @kleffnotes”

The Power of Mercy Book Review and Kickstarter News ( @YlvaPublishing ) from @kleffnotes

I’ve reviewed books from Ylva Publishing in the past and even did a feature on their books earlier this year as part of a series of ClexaCon related features. While at the convention I had the opportunity to pick up more of their books and found out about an amazing project they are undertaking. They have recently launched a Kickstarter to turn one of their books, The Power of Mercy, into a graphic novel. This is the first book in a series focused on a badass lesbian superhero of color, which is something that we definitely need more of in the world of superheroes.

The Bi Line: Sunstone and Sexy Escapades from @kleffnotes

I love frequenting my local comic book shop, not just because it is great to be in a physical space full of nerdy things, but because the staff are so great. They frequently suggest reads for me when I come in, which is great for fulfilling my quest for comic knowledge even if it isn’t great for my wallet. During one of my visits two of the people there mentioned there was a book they thought I’d like. They showed me the first volume of Sunstone and insisted that while the book was pretty steamy, that the plot was so good that they frequently recommended it to their over 18 readers. This first book set me down a path of discovery and excitement and I fell completely head over heels for the world of Sunstone.

Good Kisser Movie Review ( @goodkissermovie )from @kleffnotes

Good Kisser had a sneak peek screening event at ClexaCon this year, but while I couldn’t attend in person I was lucky enough to be able to watch the movie after the convention.

Due to her feelings of insecurity she finds herself agreeing to take part in a three way with Kate and a woman named Mia. Over the course of one night secrets and lies are revealed, passions rise, and Jenna will have to decide what matters most to her.

Wireless and More Steam-Powered Adventures Book Review ( @QoSPress )from @kleffnotes

Take to the skies and become part of a variety of mysterious and thrilling events with the sequel to Alex Acks’ Murder on the Titania, Wireless and More Steam-Powered Adventures. This new book returns readers to the world of Captain Marta Ramos and her crew through three connected stories set in Acks’ steampunk style universe. Even though this is a sequel, this book can be read first, but I would strongly recommend that you read the first book before hand since there are some references to previous mysteries that would be a bit spoiled by reading this installment first.

The Bi Line: Lip Service from @kleffnotes

Sometimes suggested watching on streaming services can be helpful, especially when they lead you to a series that you’ve never heard of before. Lip Service is a British television drama set in Glasgow, Scotland which was literally described by Hulu as like The L Word. When I first started the show I was struck with a tremendous amount of deja vu, not because of the plot, but because of the styling of the main character, Frankie. Continue reading “The Bi Line: Lip Service from @kleffnotes”

Interview with Lauren Flans and Nicole Pacent from Coming Out Pod ( @ComingOutPod ) from @kleffnotes

Every week Lauren Flans and Nicole Pacent share a coming out story with a special guest because who doesn’t love a coming out story. Each story is so unique and provides deeper insight into the diversity of people who make up the LGBTQ+ community. Lauren and Nicole provide the perfect place to have fun while also discussing deep topics. I had the chance to ask them a few questions about the podcast as well as their upcoming live show at ClexaCon this year. While the interview is with both Lauren and Nicole as this was done over email, Lauren was the primary writer.
