Cover Preview: Unmentionable: The Men Who Loved on the Titanic


I just received the cover art for my new historical with Loveyoudivine.com, Unmentionable: The Men Who Love on the Titanic.

Here’s a a blurb, below. And here’s a link to read a preview excerpt. I’ll post more about the release date soon.

One hundred years ago on April 14, 1912, the RMS Titanic hit an iceberg on its way to New York. Though it had been considered unsinkable by all standards, it went down in the cold waters of the Atlantic, taking with it stories of love and romance that weren’t discussed openly in those days. This was especially true with stories of love between two men. One of those hidden stories of the Titanic dealt with the unyielding love and strong romance between a young man named Liam and his older lover, Oliver. Because Oliver was a wealthy business man in America with a great deal of notoriety, the only safe way to bring Liam aboard the Titanic was to dress him in fine women’s clothing and claim he was Oliver’s shy, distant cousin returning to America for the first time in many years. They finally begin to relax when they realize that everyone on the ship believes Liam is a woman, until that fateful night on April 14th when destiny intervened and changed their lives forever.

NYT Article on the Conditions Under Which Apple Employees Work

I posted about how I’m not the biggest fan of Apple for various reasons, earlier this week, here.

Here’s a link a friend told me about. It’s an article in the NYT about how Apple employees are treated in China and the conditions under which they work.

Employees work excessive overtime, in some cases seven days a week, and live in crowded dorms.

Interesting how a company with such huge earnings could treat human beings this way.

In the last decade, Apple has become one of the mightiest, richest and most successful companies in the world, in part by mastering global manufacturing. Apple and its high-technology peers — as well as dozens of other American industries — have achieved a pace of innovation nearly unmatched in modern history.

You can get there from here.
