My column, “The Hooking Author’s Secret Bank Account,” is up at RTB this morning. Not until this morning did I realize how ‘corner of Vine and Sunset’ that sounded. Hooks. Secret Babies, and virgins and such.

J.C. Wilder is keeping an RT journal! The imagined visual of EC authors dropping condom-balloon animals on unsuspecting diners will get me through the day. I’m not seeing enough pictures yet! I know, it’s probably a pain in the ass to upload them on the road, but I will be stalking people come Monday.

I should be writing right now, but I’ve got both boys home for April vacation, and the husband’s mostly home today, so…:rant: Too many men roaming around my house.

    Holy crap! At first glance, I totally thought hooking authors meant, you know, authors who do a little hookin’ and you were offering advice on how to avoid having the funds seized should you be arrested. I thought it was going to be related to the alleged moral turpitude of people who read or write erotica and romantica.

    Shows you how wrong I was. :lmao:

    April vacation has come to a close, so my men running amok go back to their jobs/school/preschool on Monday. :cheer:

    Of course, I just found out my in-laws are coming tomorrow afternoon, and after a week of vacation with rain every day, I don’t have the words to describe what my house looks like. So I’ll be cleaning instead of :type:

    Kate, we’ll have to make condom-balloon animals next year. Of course mine will all look like condom-balloon snakes, but that’s okay.

    And the column was already up by the time I really looked at the title, so it was too late. :shrug:
