Taboos in Romance: What Isn’t Acceptable?...

Oct 10, 2008 by

The past year or so was quite the eye opening experience in reading for me. Not only was I introduced to the joys of tree sex with oversexed men who change into seals but also Italian hermaphrodites heroines and their double penis heroes. And let’s not forget the fun of making love on a horse with your orifice of choice. And now I found out, thanks to Kati from Adventures in Katidom, that Joey W. Hill has written a fantasy romance called A Mermaid’s Kiss where the heroine shift changes into a mermaid. And at one point the hero and mermaid woman have sex while she is in her mermaid form. Say hello to the year of fish love! And apparently there is a sequel planned, A White Beauty, with a heroine being an...

Miss Pettigrew Lives For a Day Movie Review...

Oct 8, 2008 by

A few weeks ago I watched a delightful movie that is part 1940’s screwball comedy, part fairy tale. Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day has two great actresses, Amy Adams, who is simply adorable, and Frances McDormand, who is one of the best actresses in Hollywood today. Both these women shine in every movie they are in and Miss Pettigrew Lives For a Day is no exception. Synopsis: In 1939 London, Miss Guinevere Pettigrew is a middle-aged governess who finds herself once again unfairly dismissed from her job. Without so much as severance pay, Miss Pettigrew realizes that she must for the first time in two decades seize the day. This she does, by intercepting an employment assignment outside of her comfort level as social secretary. Arriving at a penthouse apartment for the interview,...

Lord of Scoundrels, The Male Perspective...

Oct 7, 2008 by

Wouldn’t it be great if there were more men who admitted they read romance novels? And wouldn’t it be even better if they reviewed romance in general? If only there were more blogs or review sites where men reviewed romance! Luckily for us, I may just have your answer. Last fall, my friend Ryan I were talking about books. Ryan loves to read as I do and he knows of my love for romance books in general. I told him of All About Romance’s Top 100 Romances of All Time poll. He was really interesting in how this poll came about and which books were considered the best of the best in romance. He was especially interested in the number one book, Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase. He wanted to read Lord of...

I Want to Be Tina Fey

Oct 6, 2008 by

Because of this:From Publishersweekly.comA Little, Brown official this morning confirmed that the house will publish Tina Fey’s book, concluding a beauty contest believed to include Ecco and two other houses. Richard Abate at Endeavor handled negotiations for the project, said to skew more toward humor than memoir; though it’s unclear what the final price tag ended up being, Wednesday’s New York Post reported that offers were approaching $6 million. **better yet, can she adopt me??** Publishers were clearly smitten with Fey, whose recent Emmy win and “Saturday Night Live” Sarah Palin imitations have ratcheted up her profile; other houses expressed early interest in the project despite Abate’s no-meeting, no-proposal pitch, but one such publisher at a Random House imprint who didn’t bid said that the price tag just became untenable. Rumor had it Fey...

Fictional Family Adoption Question...

Oct 5, 2008 by

Alison Morris who has an on-line column called Wall Scrawl for Publishers Weekly has posted an interesting question: “Poor, poor you! You’re a literary orphan with no parents to call your own. What fictional family would you like to have adopt you?” If you had your choice of any family from literature to be you parents and siblings, who would you choose? Mine was a tie between the Ingalls from the Little House on the Prairie series by Laura Ingalls Wilder or Marilla Cuthbert and her brother Matthew from L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables...
