Hey, this is very cool - the Harlequin Historical authors now have a blog. Yippee and hooray!

In other news, I actually went to Borders this weekend and bought books. My last several trips to the "new" bookstores have left me empty-handed. I'm just not finding a lot of books I have the urge to buy new these days. I still have my select authors, but frankly I've just been feeling a little blah with romance publishing these days. That said, I did pick up:
  • Wanted! by Pam Crooks - it's a Harlequin Historical western and I usually try to buy these new. Just doing my part to keep this line going and to keep me in westerns.
  • Sex In Uniform - yes a Black Lace anthology all about people in uniform. Seriously I'm a sucker for naughty doctors, cops, maids, security guards - you name it.
  • I Love You To Death by Amy Garvey - this one has been out forever and I just haven't gotten around to buying it until now. Really enjoyed Garvey's story in the Wicked Women Whodunit anthology and her novel, Murder in the Hamptons.
Side rant here: Can I get a separate erotica section in the bookstore please? Some of them are now shelved in romance (which I don't like) while others are buried in the Self-Help/Sexuality non-fiction section. I mean, I saw several copies of The Switch by Diane Whiteside sitting back there and it's where I finally found Sex In Uniform, which I've been looking for for months. This is why I tend to buy all my erotica online. It's just a hell of a lot easier, the selection is loads better, assholes haven't pawed through the books and creased the spines all the hell, and I don't have to strain my brain trying to figure out where the hell the store shelved it. Rant over.

And for your reading pleasure - another gum graft haiku:

Mouth like hamburger
Roof of mouth not healing fast
Good news, eating less

ooooohhhhhhh thanks for the link

Eh, I don't mind erotica in with romance as long as the spine is labeled. I don't want it in self help. Not that they asked me ;)
