I think I’m offended. Really. My friend Georgette at Barnes & Noble was kind enough to send me a copy of Romantic Times. I already new about the review for CHARMED & READY, and it’s really great. The shocker was they considered the sex in my book “Mild.” That’s crazy. Did they read the scene on the couch? Well, actually it’s over a couch… I know books are hotter and hotter these days, but I wouldn’t consider mine to “May or not include lovemaking. No explicit sex.” Let me tell ya folks, I got me some explicit sex in there. ;-)
So a couple of the reviews are trailing in Harriet Klausner’s review, hers run all over the place, is a good one too. You can read it at http://www.bn.com and keyword Charmed & Ready.
And did I tell you guys about the one on fresh fiction? You can check it out at freshfiction.com.
My first check for the new contract came today. That’s always fun, and a nice surprise amid all the craziness of this week. I mean, I was actually thinking of taking up alcoholism as a hobby. I know, that’s not funny, but seriously haven’t you had days when the mind-numbing effects of a bottle of Jack Daniels seem extremely appealing?
Don’t worry, I’ve no intention of becoming one. It’s too expensive. No, instead I’ve indulged in my latest addiction — chocolate frosting. I actually had a dream about it last night. When I baked the cake last weekend I had my oldest pick up a can of chocolate frosting, just in case my from scratch tastiness didn’t make the grade. Well, mine rocked. :-) So, the can has been sitting in the pantry for the last four days.
Until today. I tried, really did. I grabbed the yogurt, and a banana and … well, I decided calorie wise it was probably best just to taste the frosting. Half a can later… I don’t want any, any more. Well, at least for today. :-)
So what foods set you off on a binge, what comforts you? I’m curious to know…
