Anniversary Shenanigans: Author Visit & Giveaway - Alexa Land




Boy Meets Boy Reviews is privileged today to be hijacked by a group of three: Alexa Land, Nico and his grandmother, Nana! Alexa is here to party with the unicorns today and she most definitely did not come empty handed. Fans (old, new and curious) definitely want to stick around for today's shenanigans. Because her gifts are for not one lucky person but FIVE lucky people!
 
And heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere's Alexa (& co.)

Happy Anniversary, Boy Meets Boy Reviews! I asked a couple of my characters to help me out with this post for your big celebration. Nana Dombruso and her grandson Nico are currently on vacation in Italy, but they’ve agreed to take some time for an interview because my readers had a few questions for Nana. They’re video chatting with me from the poolside bar at their hotel. Nana, wow, that’s some bikini. Nico will be asking the questions, so take it away Nico!

Nico: Why did I agree to this?

Nana: Because you’re a good boy, that’s why.

Nico: Alright, let’s get this over with. Here’s the first question. Oh my God. Okay, um, Dear Nana: My penis is curved but my man crush is straight. How can I convince him to let me show him the joys of gay homosexual love?

Nana: Well, that’s a damn fine question! If you’re trying to attract a man, I say you put on something real sexy-like so he has to notice you, like buttless chaps. You know what I learned recently? That all chaps are buttless. Ain’t that something? I do enjoy me some cowboys, I tell you what. You got the chaps, the boots, the hat, some rope, that’s sex on a stick right there. Or sex on a horse, technically.  Do you think it’s possible to have sex on a horse? Well, probably now that I think about it, but I don’t think you should. What if the horse gets spooked from all the yelling and moaning and whatnot? That could get dangerous. What was the question?

Nico: I don’t remember. Um, Nana, I don’t think you should be drinking that entire pitcher of sangria. Oh hell, then again, why not? Okay, question two: what’s left on your bucket list?

Nana: You know, I don’t really believe in having a bucket list. I mean, what are you waiting for? If there’s something you want to do, just go do it! Life is short, you know what I’m saying? There are a couple things I’ve been meaning to get to though, and just haven’t yet because I’m a busy woman! I finally decided to divorce my no-good husband, so that means I’m a single girl and I’m on the prowl. I want to find me a silver fox, that’d be on my bucket list if I had one! We’re getting ready to throw a big singles party here in Italy, maybe I’ll meet someone there. I got gay homosexual strippers, fire dancers, a mime, it’s gonna be a real hum-dinger!

Nico: You went with the mime? Really?

Nana: People love mimes! And clowns. I got one of them, too. He’s not very good at balloon animals, they all look like a fat snake with two big, bulging eyes, but that’s okay.

Nico: So…like a great, big penis?

Nana: Tsk. You have such a dirty mind, Nicky. Anyway, like I was saying we’re going to have some high-quality entertainment at this shindig! The fire dancers even said I could be a part of the act. That ought to catch a hottie’s eye!

Nico: Or catch him on fire. I think we’d better talk about that later. Alright, let’s see, question three: Nana, do you have a celebrity crush?

Nana: Now, it’s no secret that I love me some Tom Selleck. What a fox! I was president of his fanclub in the 1980s. Oh, now that’s on my bucket list!

Nico: What is?

Nana: Taking Tom Selleck for a mustache ride.

Nico: Oh lord.

Nana: I’ll never understand why he didn’t win the Oscar for Magnum P.I.

Nico: They don’t give Oscars for TV shows.

Nana: Details! You know what would have been really sweet? A crossover between Magnum PI and Remington Steele. And by crossover I mean a great, big Magnum/Remington sammich. I’d pay good money to see that. Hell, throw those boys from Miami Vice in there while you’re at it, make that sammich a quadruple decker! Hot buns and salami, far as the eye can see! Damn, is it getting hot out here?

Nico: ….

Nana: What’s the next question?

Nico: I’m afraid to look. Okay, here’s one: What is your biggest guilty pleasure?

Nana: Gay porn. Next question!

Nico: You’re kidding, right?

Nana: What’s wrong, Nicky? You’re turning all red.

Nico: Nothing, I’m fine. Alright, moving on. You're a local celebrity with your cooking show. Would you ever consider doing a show like Dancing with the Stars?

Nana: It’s a crying shame they haven’t called me yet! I was born to be on that show! As a matter of fact, when I get some time, I’m going to make one of them audition tapes and send it in. Just look at these moves I got!

Nico: Nana…Nana, I don’t think the bartender wants you twerking all over him. Nana? …Well, we lost her. I guess that’s it for the interview. Bye!

And they’re gone. Thanks for sending in your questions, sorry Nana couldn’t get to all of them!
Read all about Nico and Nana’s Italian vacation in All I Believe, the tenth book in my Firsts and Forever series, which will be coming out this December!

For twenty-six-year-old rent boy Chance Matthews, surviving day-to-day in San Francisco is difficult enough. Then an ill-fated road trip to Wyoming to search for his biological father throws his life into a tailspin. When a string of catastrophes leaves him stranded and desperate, help comes from the last person he’d expect. His knight in shining armor is everything he could want and then some, but Chance is sure a man like that would never want someone like him. That’s the stuff of fairy tales, and he stopped believing in those a long time ago.
