I’ve tried to cut back on my surfing time lately, as I’m playing beat the clock on a reworking of a manuscript. Plus work, plus family–you know.
Also, as a dutiful wannabe better author, trying to keep up with the things that matter or should matter to me. Promotion, goings on, electronic whatnots and publishing whosits.
I did get sucked into looking at twitter posts on the Romantic Times convention and the Princeton Romance convention (the latter I even visited). I’m sure regarding the former, there are a hundred rumors I’ll never hear. But I’m hearing a few.
Wouldn’t it be great to have a Romance Snopes site? At least once a week I have to point to Snopes for a coworker who thinks Al Quaeda operatives are going to blow up her car at the gas station or gangs are going to flash their car lights and surround her. She doesn’t drink Coke because she’s convinced it can cook a pork chop.
What would you ask a Romancesnopes to cover? My husband is convinced Nora Roberts is too prolific to have written all of her own books. I wouldn’t mind a list of authors who are also publishers or editors. I don’t think any of the current romance blogs is impartial enough to qualify.
