Josh Lanyon: Secret Photo Album

While the ladies served iced beverages to our guest over at the Tiki Lounge, and my pal Tracy carefully applied her screwdriver to his escape route plane, (I love her. She's such a helper! No, she did NOT disable the plane.), I, er, rummaged through his luggage and discovered his wee scrap book. Here are a few photos I managed to lift.




Now if you want to read a marvelous story about a man on the edge....and his very hot older ex-lover (think George Clooney. Oh. Yes.)...I Spy Something Bloody is just the right book for you. I mean, it made the front page of the Annandale Advocate! (Where the freak is Annandale?)


And for the newly emerging m/m romance writer ::cough:: may I recommend this most excellent How To?



I like the fact that they had to put a railing up so that people wouldn't smear themselves across the high glossed perfection that is Snowball In Hell . Here is a great m/m mystery love story film noir style. (Did that sentence make sense??)




Women seem to toss themselves at Mr. Lanyon. It's funny. Look! I think that chick is licking his photo. Josh, are those the gates outside your house? I think maybe you should upgrade and add a little voltage, no? This smart looking man is actually from the Loose-id cover of the Adrien English Mysteries.



Before he catches me tearing stuff out of his scrap book, I have to share (SULA LOOK) this LOL cat. I think Angusdevotee made it...is that kitty eating the book? Or is he perhaps feeling the love? IDK.







You think we're the only ones ooohhhing and ahhhhing over Josh Lanyon's latest book?
On September 29th, Death of a Pirate King will be released in print from MLRPress. It's available in ebook format over at Loose-id right now, and given how the fanyon's have twittered and twirled on and on about Adrien English, if you haven't given these books a try: Dooooo eeeeeeeet.


When Paris promotes it, you know that it's got to be good. However: she's not invited to our island.

I thought I burned this album with all those old love letters!

So for points -- or an ebook giveaway? -- name the silliest sentimental thing you ever hung onto. Our panel of judges will decide the goofiest keepsake.

Carolyn Jean said...

You put them to superior use. ::kiss:: Oh, hi Josh. Sorry to hear your plane has been dismantled. LB blamed it on Tracy, but it was really Tattoo who did it!

Josh Lanyon said...

but it was really Tattoo who did it!

I THOUGHT I heard someone yelling, "Da plane, da plane!"

Carolyn Jean said...

LOL. I vote we put him in LB's hut. I sort of loved that show, but I found it very frightening!

Carolyn Jean said...

Is that your official pick for the next round of Hero draft? Yes? Got it. I'll put you down for Montalbon.

Josh, as you know, two of your characters are already on our posh desert island. Which one would you rather hang around with? Jake or Adrien?

lisabea said...

CJ since you DUMPED Captain Kirk...he's always welcome in my hut.

Tracy said...

Oh LB what a great post!

My goodness Josh you do have an interesting scrapbook. I say you put killer adhesive on the photo on your "estate" gate so those girls who go to lick it will get stuck. (I'm so mean!)

Ok the silliest thing I've hung onto over the years is a little stuffed giraffe. Why? No.friggin.clue. I think I was in 7th grade and so far past the time I should have liked stuffed animals but it was really small and cute. I had stuck him in my window so he could enjoy the view and he faded on one side. He's currently in a box in my garage.

And yeah the whole plane thing? sooooo not me - totally Tattoo!!

Pretty pictures *claps hands*

Silliest momento I have ever kept....

I'm not sure of this is silly more stoopid.

I kept a pair of my old boyf underwears with my name written in the crotch....don't ask.

Ok, I'm getting semi serious here. I just finished DOAPK. (Pay-day came finally.) And I LOVED it. I was just..well words escape me right now cause I'm still too raw. I think I'll need a couple of weeks and a re-read of all the books again to get some rational, coherent persective.

I'm sure I read somewhere that DOAPK was going to be your last Adrien ENglish book. And while I am glad you are ending it on a high (I hate it when an author flogs a dead franchise...) I'm bereft that I will have no more Adrien and Jake mysteries.

Do you think you would ever re-visit them again? Perhaps a short story for an anthology perhaps....an maxi epilogue for all us junkies out here. Or have you said your goodbyes.... *sob*

Sarah said...

What a fantastic album :) Photo licking AND Lolcattery. heh.

My Princess Diana scrapbook. I shit you not. My nana used to keep magazines for me and I'd cut out pictures and paste em in. It was heouge, she was a bit of a phenomenon dwn unda in the 80's. It was there I got my love of jaunty hats with bells on.

Oh. The. Humanity.

Sarai said...

Okay I still have the sweatshirt my first boyfriend gave me in like 6th grade and I still wear it LOL it doesn't fit well AT ALL. OMG I can't believe I shared that *blushing*

I enjoy spending time with Jake. I'm never quite sure what's going to come out of his mouth. Sometimes he's funny, sometimes he's rude, sometimes he's tender. But it's always the real thing with him.

Josh Lanyon said...

CJ since you DUMPED Captain Kirk...he's always welcome in my hut.

Who dumps Captain Kirk? What if a salt-sucking space alien arrives? You NEED Captain Kirk on your team.

Thanks for all the kind words, Sayuri60. Originally this was the last Adrien book -- although I had the bones for one final mystery plot. I decided (was convinced?) that there was still enough of the emotional arc left for one final book.

So that will be out in December 2009.

One more -- so I held back a few scenes that would have made their way into this one.

That is so fricking sweet. I have to tell you. *g*

Tracy, as Jake would say...Uh huh.

Josh Lanyon said...

Sarai. That is so funny. I shouldn't laugh though. I still have a sweatshirt from a guy...and it's buried in a box in my garage with the dog collar of my very favorite dog.

Josh Lanyon said...

Okay, well, the truth is I can't chose between those four little sentimental keepsakes, so if any or all of you four want to drop me a line through my website, you can pick whichever of my e-titles you don't currently have that you might enjoy.
