Conversation with the heroine…

of The Widowmaker

Lydia: He can’t talk to me like that.

Me: Oh, don’t go trying that maidenly miss thing with me. I know your deep, dark secret, remember? So don’t expect me to believe that you’d be all up on your high horse because he said :censor:.

Lydia: No, he can’t talk to me like that because they don’t use that word here in 1879.

Jack: So what am I supposed to say? Come and touch the proof … Read More »

Speaking of TSTL…

If you’re going to plagiarize somebody’s book—with merely a find & replace name change—should you:

A) At least change the title?

My RWR came in the mail…

…which is good because we’re going camping Columbus Day weekend and we always need paper for starting the campfire. But anyway…

All the RITA and Golden Heart info is in there. That’ll be the first section to be set on fire. *g* Even disregarding the entire hostility-toward-erotic-romance thing, Twice Upon A Roadtrip is ineligible for either contest.
