Spoiler: They Make Babies

The missing link.

Posted in General Talk, Things To Read by spoilerbaby on February 19, 2010

I’ve added a blogroll to the sidebar of S:TMB.  At the moment, it’s got most of the predictable popular sites, but I figure I’ll keep researching and adding links from time to time.  If you have a suggestion, please speak up!

I went to the library the other day and took out four romance novels, which I have been steadily plowing (heh) through since.  One of them I just sort-of-reviewed; I’m going to finish Breathing Room by Susan Elizabeth Phillips next, and then move on to a romance by Mary Jo Putney that I borrowed based on a reader recommendation.

Two more links:

  • Apparently recessions lead to a rise in romance sales.  It makes sense.  Graduate school is sort of like a recession — depressing, difficult to overcome, impoverishing — and I’ve been reading romances at a breakneck pace.
  • The Guardian has an article featuring two prominent Harlequin writers, describing the process and requirements of writing a successful short romance.

Now I should really get back to that whole “writing my dissertation” thing, huh?
