Someone, please stop Tess Gerritsen from reading those idiot reviews of her latest book. Or at least introduce her to the reviewers in real life, that should do it.

It appears that Jayne Ann Krentz has edited out some of the Okays beginning the posts at her new blog. Huge relief; I was starting to get Pamela Anderson flashbacks.

I think J.K. Rowling and John Grisham should have blogs. They have everything else.

Who else? Well, I've vowed to be nice to every author on the BSL list named Jennifer who has had a baby or is going through menopause until January 1st. That eliminates half the list.

In honor of his upcoming ball-and-chain ceremony, I've named a fictional daiquiri after Douglas Clegg. Still deciding on the ingredients -- yes, I was a bartender in my youth -- but it will be featured prominently on the drink menu at Infusion, Lucan's nightclub in Dark Need. Should go well with the Peter Strauberry Margaritas. Congratulations, Douglas and Raul.*

*Who will hopefully forgive me, please, for renaming him in the earlier version of this post.

    Thank you so much! We're excited about the whole Civil Union thing. I've never been in a union before -- but I've always looked for the union label.

    (small note: It's Raul, but Rafael is a cool name, too. He has a cousin named Rafael.)

  2. PBW, is there anything that you can't do? :-) Doug, congrats to you and Raul.

    Now I have my own little meme game question running through my head: What flavor would a daquiri in my name be? Strawberry-pineapple with a dash of cream and 151 rum?

    My apologies, Doug, and I'll correct that now -- Rafael is Lucan's seneschal, btw; probably why that popped up instead.

    Mary, I can't kill spiders. Or won't, I should say. I can, however, bellow at the top of my lungs while running away from them.

    Mary Stella -- Thank you!

    And PBW -- no problem -- and if I could've picked my own name, I'd have gone for Rafael.

    Thanks again for the honor of the drink, also!
