The Pit of Despair

by Susan Sey I wouldn’t feel right about leading anybody on, so I’m going to say right up front that this is not a Princess Bride blog. Sorry, fans. In spite of the title, there will be no ROUSes (Rodents of Unusal Size), no Six Fingered Men, & no love in the Fire Swamp. There will also be no more rhyming, & I mean it. (Though I will give props & bonus points to the first person to successfully finish off that quote. It’s my mom’s favorite.) No, the Pit of Despair I’m talking about (hereafter referred to as the

CRUSHES

by Suzanne We got to talking on someone’s post the other day or week about first loves. This got me to thinking about my first crush. No, not the lastest media-blitzed boytoy made to appear all american or rebellious for the thrill of young girls. I mean that first guy who makes your heart do little flips every time you’re near him? The one you have a secret crush on but would DIE if he ever found out, especially if he didn’t think of you as anything more than a buddy or little sister. (That’s Gidget over there with the

Somebody Save Me

by Nancy We all love a good rescue, don’t we? Many of us in the Lair especially like rescues involving massive boom. Most rescues, though, are a lot quieter. Even when there’s boom in a romance novel rescue, the more important salvation comes when the hero and heroine free each other from their baggage–when love lets them finally shed the ghosts, scars, and fears of their pasts and make a new life together. This blog was inspired by the Remy Zero song “Save Me,” which happens to be the theme song for Smallville. The chorus, which is the part in

Literacy, Chocolate … and a Winner!

By Kate For the first time ever, I attended the RWA Literacy Signing last week – as an author! I signed lots of books, gave away lots of chocolate (Ghirardelli, of course, because my protagonist in Homicide in Hardcover lives in San Francisco), and had an absolute blast! (Hey, I just got this photo of me taken by my friend Maureen Child! Thanks, Maureen!) But before the day arrived, I must admit I worried. There are hundreds of authors signing at this event. What if I sat next to a weirdo? What if my neighbors thought I was a weirdo?
