Blog post…of doom

This morning, while looking something up for DG4, I was rereading a section of No Surrender and came across this sentence, which made me laugh:

She obeyed without hesitation while he used the Flash Drive of Doom, as Charlotte called it, to fry each of the computers.

Why did I laugh? Well, if you’ve read Exclusively Yours, you know the heroine had to suffer through tandem cannonballs of doom as well as the Annual Kowalski Volleyball Death Match Tournament of Doom. There may or may not be Incidents of Doom in Undeniably Yours. You’ll have to read it to find out.

Quite often there are things about an author’s work that would identify it as hers even if her name wasn’t listed on the book. Assholic heroes. Genuine relationships between male characters. Obsessive brand name dropping. I guess mine is DOOM.

Yes, this a phrase used a lot in my house. And it’s almost always followed by somebody (usually TK) making the dramatic duh duh DUH sound.

I have to go work on the Edits of Doom.

Duh duh DUH…

It’s not something I do deliberately. Just a little bit of me in my books, I guess. And now I’m off to work on the Epic Car Chase of Doom.

Duh duh DUH.

    I often describe dark clouds on the horizon as impending doom. Very dramatic!

    I love DOOM.

    My cousins call their dad The Harbinger of DOOM or H.O.D.
