‘Hunger Games’ promo art is really homoerotic

Mockingjay Part 1 - D7 District Heroes CollectionMockingjay Part 1 - D6 District Heroes CollectionIf you haven’t already seen the promotional artwork for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1, which hits theaters in November, you’ve missed some pretty sexy images. The concept is to underplay the movie and make the promos look like they are for the people of Panem themselves, to get them excited over the competition. Each district has a “hero” being marketed to its residents, and if I had a choice, I’d definitely like to live in District 7 (The Lumber District — lots of wood!) or District 6 (The Transportation District — he really knows how to wear rubber!).

GIVEAWAY: “Fangs and Stilettos” by gay author and publisher Anthony DiFiore

First of all, congrats to the winner of my first book giveaway from Friday. I hope you enjoy!

Keeping with our Literary Issue out this week, for today, I have a copy of Fangs and Stilettos to add to your library. Author Anthony DiFiore mixes Twilight and The Devil Wears Prada by injecting a little of the supernatural into the world of fashion. And like Twilight and Hunger Games, the book reads well for both young adults and, um, not-as-young adults.

DiFiore is also the man behind inGroup Press, an energetic publisher focused on LGBT titles and books of intriguing interest.

The book is officially in stores and online tomorrow which is when I’ll pick the random winner. Just email me here with “Bite Me” in your subject line to win your copy of the new Fangs and Stilettos.
