And I’m apparently still suffering from blogger’s block. Everybody else seems to have the most profound things to say lately. I’m just sitting here hoping for something profound to pop into my head in time for my RTB column.
Can I just mention how depressing it is to read about the over-saturation of the vampire romance when writing a vampire romance? Very. And while I can try to convince the muse we’re dealing with a different kind of vampire (*cue Vic Mackey*), so is everybody else. And one of the key things that makes him ‘different’ is the thing that’s making the heroine balk. (I love that word—it makes her sound like a chicken.) This book is really a pain in the ass.
I’m curious to see if Harlequin/Silhouette will drop any Bombshells in time for Nationals again this year. Pun intended, as that’s the line with the longetivity I’m most curious about. There doesn’t seem to be any way to tell how the line’s been received, and whether it’s still a good line to shoot for, or if it’s going to pull a Flipside. I’m a little worried about Intimate Moments, too, even though I always imagined that as their ‘flagship’ line. Despite statements to the contrary, I can’t see their cutting back to 4 books and refocusing on top-selling authors and themes as a good thing for my SIM ms. It looks like Blaze is top dog for now. (Might be all that yummy sex. :nookie:)
Mostly I’m just fighting off the monkeys that keep chattering away “You haven’t heard anything from your editor about the changes you made because YOU SUCK!”
(I might have to go steal Cece’s uzi smilie for those monkeys.)
Anyway. Random musings from somebody trying to avoid scooping the litter boxes.
