Let me take you to Rio

Temperature: an unseasonably balmy 14/57 degrees

Eating: chicken tikka masala

Drinking: all in good time, sweetie darlings, all in good time

Watching: A day in Rio de Janeiro (see below), a gem Lynn Viehl, Paperback Writer, posted on her nonpareil blog on Friday. That sunrise in sepia...there's nothing like it anywhere in the world.

Listening: to some samba batucada

Reading: Run the Risk by Lori Foster

Writing: down an idea, yet another book I'll probably never have time to write

Feeling: the first flu of the season coming my way, oh go away!

Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition

Especially on a Sunday, but I want to ask you something related to the war of words that has been raging lately, and whether or not the fate of books is written in the stars. These

An eye for an eye

...only leads to more blindness.

Docile International Day of Peace, dearest denizens.

A gentle reminder

That today I'll be at Coffee Time Romance chatting with the 69 Shades of Smut authors from 2pm EST until I fall off my chair and my eyes pop. Authors. Ready, willing and able to suffer for their art since time immemorial.

To reserve your seat, click here.  

Hope to see you there, sweetie darlings! Muah!!

Whole lotta shakin' goin' on

How are you, sweetie daaarlings? Has your September got off to a good start? Have you had a chance to pick up Perpetual Pleasure yet? All those running for cover...you know what's coming, don't you...bad boys and girls, go to my room!

The new school year has meant peace and quiet during the day. And a whole lot of running around in the afternoons and evenings, but one has practiced so it's ok, and the extracurricular activities are such that it's more fun than work, for everyone. Yesterday, my youngest began karate practice and came back from the first lesson ready to take on Chuck Norris. And Chuck is what, 9th dan? 10th? It was a delight to watch, dearest denizens. The sweetest thing.

My social and work calendars are filling up fast. In the spirit of going out more often, I've booked some guest appearances for yours truly madly deeply with colleagues you've all heard of.

My guest blogging schedule so far:

Oct 1, Lissa Matthews

Oct 15, Delilah Devlin

Oct 17,
Cindy Spencer Pape
Nov 16, Desiree Holt (The Holt! What shall I wear? What shall I wear?!)

Nov 19, Cassandra Carr

I'm already sketching out those posts. I hate nothing worse than cooking up something at the last minute. It can end well, stellar even, but when it doesn't, when you're not feeling it, it ain't pretty, and one only has oneself to blame for that. (And what's with the transatlantic English today? Shape up, Dita!) I'll do my best to make it worth your while, sweetie darlings. Keep it fun and real, m'kay?

But first, the 69ers and I will take over the Erotic E-loop at Coffee Time Romance on September 19th. There will definitely be book talk and probably men talk and sex talk and who knows what talk! The only way to find out what goes down is to show up, so come on over when you have a moment. My carriage is always the first one to turn into a pumpkin, stupid time difference, so I'll be there early on.

But even before that, I'm blogging at 69 Shades on the 8th, as usual. See you there on Saturday! To pass the time, go pick up the free reads (and check out the discounts!) at Ellora's Cave. Then think how much money you just saved and become a patron of that Parker girl, Dita I think her name is. Or words will be had in my room, where I sent you earlier, remember?

Oh you'd like that, huh? Not when I'm sitting on you and you don't know what hit you. Oh you'd like that even better now? Then I'm not going to excite you any further by telling you what happens next. And I don't know what factors influence your decision to buy a book, but Glenna says, "Loved this book." I know it's all the rage but just so you know, I didn't pay Glenna to say so.
