OK, well yesterday I was stressed so today I decided a little retail therapy might help. My problem of course is having no money. BUT I can rationalize the purchase of a few romance novels as research (which it is) as well as enjoyment :) I was trying to get Jill Shalvis' Seeing Red but couldn't find it even in Zellers (Canadians version of Walmart). I will have to revert to the internet for it now LOL.
Instead I saw books by JoAnn Ross, Lori Foster and Jenelle Denison that I hadn't read--and before you say it, NO I haven't read all the freebies I got in Reno yet, but there is something so satisfying about buying a book and holding it in your sticky mitts that I had to get them. These 3 authors write pretty hot stuff (I have only read Lori's and that was several years ago, but I have heard on the grapevine and can tell by the covers) and I'm curious as to how hot publishing is getting as of now. Hot doesn't bother me, though I don't like erotica, I need the romance you see :) And hot seems to sell--unless your at the other end of the spectrum with Inspirational, which also sell. Again I like those books too, when well written, though don't want the industry to go to the extremes with nothing in the middle.
The stuff I write is in the middle--I need the middle--and why am I suddenly channelling Elaine out of Seinfeld???
OK--off to watch the Invasion premiere after getting 6 pages of Gabriel's story written :)
