Dear Missy, I have a problem. You see, I lurk at a message board where readers talk about … what else … books! And I really love going through the threads where people talk about what they are reading, because I end up with a massive TBR that way and tons of recommendations. And, yes, […]
D’oh! Yeah, I’m an idiot.
So, I just found a typo in the last set of bookmarks I printed. I always check them carefully, but in this case it didn’t occur to me that it might be wrong: it was an apostrophe that looked okey-dokey to me, until I had the stray thought at half-past midnight tonight, Uh-oh. Is that […]
Arrrrrrrgggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!! W000000000000000000000000000000000T! *soooooooooooooooooooooooooobbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb* D’oh! Yayayayayayayay! Gah!! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL! LMAO! LMFAO! ROTFLMAO! WTF? *cries* *headdesk* *crazy happy dance* …okay, I’m almost ready for the release. Reviews are coming in (like this one). I’m putting my head down and going to pretend not to see (until, of course, I do a round up next week while massively pimping […]
So we meet again, Automated Postal Center. I see you were intimidated by my mad MacGyver skills that time you tried to eat my debit card, and so you have dreamed up new and horrid trials for me to overcome, new ways to thwart me. And you have almost succeeded. At midnight last night, I […]
Thanks to HelenKay and Sybil, I found out that Demon Moon is being reviewed in the upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly. And it got an A- Yeah, it rocks, really freaking hard. But here’s the thing that gets me right in the gut — I haven’t seen too many romance reviews come out of EW […]
I first noticed it when I was looking at China Mieville’s UN LUN DUN a week or so ago. (Aside: I lurve Mieville.) Also, Keri Arthur’s TEMPTING EVIL, and Linnea Sinclair’s GAMES OF COMMAND, Dawn Thompson’s BLOOD MOON (whose cover fascinates me for some reason — I think it’s the font) and Melanie Jackson’s WRIT […]
I don’t know how long they’ve been in there. But they’ve been growing. This is what I get for being an idiot.
…but are probably more like: “D’oh!” So, a little while ago, I was mentioning that I didn’t know if/when I’d get ARCs for Demon Angel. I haven’t yet, but Nalini Singh clued me in to many online reviewers’ willingness to accept .pdf ARCs, then last night I noticed that May has .pdf ARCs in her […]
You are: …working on a proposal (because you currently don’t have a contract). …working on a synopsis (because you currently don’t have a full storyline). …working on a query to an agent (because you currently don’t have a clue). You are not spending the entire day gazing at a computer screen and then your shoes […]
I guess because it’s so long, and the production costs are higher. Whoops. If you pre-ordered at $6.99, there’s still two months to cancel. But it’s still a good deal. I’ll break it down: F-words per dollar: about 4 Sex scenes per dollar: about .5 Demons per dollar: about 8,089,008 Blood per dollar: about 35 […]
So, I was going through the galley proofs and entering the changes I’d written on the page into my MS Word manuscript — 65 of the pages needed changes. Some of the changes were dates and numbers. One of the things I realized (after copy-editing) was that a secondary character’s age needed to be reduced […]
Which is good, because it’s hard to write a sex scene without it. It’s all swollen on the back, which will likely turn into a nasty-ass bruise, but I can type comfortably. I just can’t, like, press on it (which I did, just to see, and because I’m an idiot). Reading:
That putting a line like “Enter a dark world where a taste of heaven…can be as hot as hell” doesn’t work so well beneath a nice calm blue menu bar and a chic lady’s dangling feet. I might have to update the main website more than I thought. ETA: Gah. I have succumbed to the […]
