Monday again…

October 24, 2011

Whew, what a weekend. The convention went well — the usual convention whirlwind.  A highlight for me was when Connie Willis discussed romantic comedies and mentioned Something Borrowed as the worst one of the year, agreeing with my own assessment.  She says she’s writing a book on how to write romantic comedies.  This is a sorely-needed resource for all writers everywhere.  I can’t wait.

I announced that I’m probably going to take a break from the live The Midnight Hour show next year.  A break, not quitting, as some people thought.  This year’s show was recorded and is supposed to be going up online as a podcast.  I’ll share the link when I have it.

The She-Wolf blog is running a poll on favorite women werewolves.  And yes, our Kitty is nominated.  It’s a great list, I think (and not just because Kitty is on it).

Weather gurus are predicting snow for Wednesday.  We’ll see…

    It is such a tough poll, I really can’t decide between many of these.

  3. Hi Carrie,

    Thanks for linking to the poll! I’m awfully flattered. And Kitty’s certainly getting a lot of votes.


  4. Just finished the first book, it’s pretty sick. I’ve had a copy of The Midnight Hour laying around for a while and I decided to take a break from Lauren K Hamilton (Who’s books have basically become scripts for pornos) and read something fresh and I have to say, kickass job.

    I know it seems like a strange thing to say but I do feel like complimenting you on your restraint with words like shit and fuck. I mean they’re great to have in situations that they’re called for, but when they start swearing like a sailor about EVERY LITTLE THING (Anita Blake) it gets pretty damn tiring.

    Sorry if it seems like I’m venting. I just had in my hands one of the most awesome series I ever read and watched it degrade into absolutely mindless dribble over the course of 20 books.
