Quick rounds this morning:

Imagine being Alison Kent and having your kids part of a wedding with weather like this. The woman has nerves of steel.

I have no idea who this woman is, but I'm not messing with her.

Got cover art? Scott Oden does. I'm trying not to turn green. And failing. Miserably.

Thanks to Jordan's Halloween post, now I have to take back some of the bad things I've said about contests.

NaNoWriMo has begun. I could tell because of the shrieks of outrage.

Monica, repeat after me: I will stop reading reviews. Especially RT reviews. And, if I am tempted, I will call PBW at once so she can tell me all her RT reviewer jokes, of which she has ten thousand.


  1. Yeah for Jordan!!

    And Yeah for Scott--what an amazing cover!!!!!!!!!

    Ha! Every November it's always the same thing, isn't it?

    Thanks for the links! Love Scott's cover art, and the guest blogger DD. (hehehe)

  4. Thanks for the mention, PBW ;) For the record, I absolutely did not print out multiple copies of the cover and roll around on them . . . that's just an ugly rumor ;)

  5. Yep, not reading reviews isn't a bad practice at all.

    But the review rating isn't what gets to me. .. it's the different treatment because of race oftentimes.

    You writers, how would YOU handle it if your race was the MOST important thing about your fiction?

    Instead of being shelved in horror or mystery or whatever, your fiction writing for entertainment was categorized as Jew books or Eastern European American books and only got reviewed by special Jew-reading or Slavic-reading reviewers ('cause the other reviewers didn't want to read Jew or Slavic books).

    You might go a tad ballistic at times too, perhaps?

  6. Thanks PBW! Sorry you have to take back some of the things you said. *ggg*

    Scott's cover is stunningly beautiful.

    DD frightens me. Snort.

    To answer your question Monica, it would piss me off. Personally, I wish they shoved all the romance books together. It doesn't make sense to do otherwise. I'd be in deep doo doo, if they separated everything. It took five different nationalities to make me. *ggg*

  7. I really don't understand people whining about people who blog about NaNoWriMo. If you don't want to read it...don't read it. It's not that hard to figure out.

  8. I was blown away by Scott's cover. Really beautiful! As for Jordan, still doing the happy dance in her honor! :)

  9. I think we can all use the list of ten thousand jokes. please?

  10. May I add another link? The anthology Stories of Strength for the benefit of hurricane victims you mentioned some time ago, is now avaliable.

    Thanks to your link I could contribute to the aid, and got my first fiction publication. :-)

  11. Oh, I'm in love and Double D deserves her own site. The teacup poodles would get their own page, I just know it, and each would be wearing a dwarf hat.

  12. Loved the cover~I sure hope he had clothes on when he rolled in the copies of the cover. I'd imagine that paper might stick to a nekkid body.

    DD has shown once more why some people think all Christians are judgmental and bigoted.

    I think romance is romance is romance and should be treated that way.

    Wow, I didn't know so many people were opposed to NaNoWriMo.

  14. Anonymous12:30 PM

    Well, crap. I didn't do NaNoWriMo because it doesn't fit what I've got on my plate this month, but nobody told me I was supposed to trash those who are.

    You'd think after 5 years online I wouldn't need to be told that I should attack and ridicule anybody who doesn't do what I do. I'll get it one of these days.
