A Little Help! Your Opinion Needed

Sunday, July 10th, 2011

This is for a Historical Romance series title — NOT a book title! Vote and/or suggest in the comments.

The series link is a medallion said to have magical properties. But this it’s only rumored magic. Not actual magic. The series is in no way paranormal. Thanks for your opinion and suggestions!

Your Gang of Four?

Team Theory – Refined

OK, based on comments on Twitter and FB, I am adding another poll.

Here’s my theory: I think people are aligned with the same side of the teams. That is, that someone who is Team Edward, will not be Team Ranger, for example. Here’s how I group them:

Group 1 Group 2
Edward Jacob
Bill Eric
Angel Spike
Morelli Ranger

Some people cross the streams, as it were, but there does seem to be a pretty close correlation.


Edward = sparkly vampire hero from Twilight. Loves Bella. (Robert Pattinson)
Jacob = Edward’s werewolf rival for Bella. (Taylor Lautner)

Bill: Vampire Bill from the Sookie Stackhouse series. Loves Sookie, but has thruthiness issues. (Stephen Moyer)
Eric: Vampire from Sookie Stackhouse series. Loves himself AND Sookie. (Alexander Skarsgard)

Angel: Vampire from Buffy series. His name is somewhat ironic. (David Borneaz)
Spike: Vampire whose life’s mission is to off Buffy until, whoa, it’s not. (James Marsters)

Morelli: Police officer from Stephanie Plum series. Loves Stephanie but isn’t happy with her career choice.
Ranger: Former Special Forces, in the same business as Stephanie.

Help Zoe Archer Accessorize!

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

In case you missed it the first time, I did a poll recently and one of the questions was to help Zoe Archer decide what to wear to the RITAS (Romance Writers of America’s award for the best in Romance.)

Zoe is a finalist this year. check out the original poll.

Now that she knows what to wear, she needs to accessorize. Well. Carolyn to the rescue!

There’s a poll at the bottom of this post so don’t forget to vote. With no further ado, here are the choices. You can vote for up to 5. Zoe will thank you. I swear.


Disco Nail Ring(s). And if someone gets fresh? Very useful.
Here’s a close up of this awesome accessory:

Incongruence Rules

The Wizard Pipe. I’m going for the Greta Garbo Meets Gandalf look here. Zoe could totally rock that look. You KNOW she could.

Bling. With Wings.

Charcoal Demon’s Necklace

Dangly Bits

And then she could get TWO of these and wear them as earrings. Indeed, I think outside the box. AND I color coordinate. Notice how these would compliment the necklace.

Glamor All Over. And Under.

And then, instead of hose or something all classical, she gets wild with these. A little sassy could really take her look to the edge.
Agro glamor socks


But really, pair this with the disco nail rings and she’s a walking prism!

No. Brainer.

Jolly Roger Pirate BootsSeriously. Oh, come on. You know I’m right.

Not Strapless

Thermos Holder. Note the handy strap. Who doesn’t need this at a gala affair? A girl could get thirsty.

The Poll

You can pick up to 5 accessories. Go. Help An Author Out (HAAO)

What 5 items should Zoe wear to accessorize her RITA outfit?

What Fiction do you Like to Read? Poll

Saturday, January 29th, 2011

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a poll, so here’s one! I’m sure I’ve forgotten some genres and, if so also pick “other” and leave a comment about that genre. For categories that have sub-categories vote for the main category and leave a comment about any subcategory you particularly enjoy, if you feel so moved. Go!

Help An Author Out

Monday, December 13th, 2010

It recently occurred to me that January 4th is coming up really soon, and January 4th is the day my paranormal My Immortal Assassin comes out. I suppose I ought to pimp the book. But how?

Time to Stand up and Speak Out

Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

Too much of the reading world is just ignorant about Romance and I’m sick and tired of it.

Just as I ask people on Twitter to join me in my Monday denial (It works! Eventually it’s not Monday) I’m going to ask you all to speak up when someone disses Romance and/or Romance readers. Commit to it.

Hey, Here’s a poll! There’s a question in honor of Jane Litte, kudos if you know which one.
