This, That And The Other

I'm lazy today, so y'all are getting links.

Sybil has posted the cover for Maureen McKade's next book, A Reason To Sin. I like it, and that's all that matters says I. Look for it in March 2008.

Speaking of Ms. McKade, I'm still pondering A Reason To Believe which means that "B" grade probably won't stick. I'm thinking of bumping it up to an A-. Not that any of this really matters since the way things are looking right now it's going to end up on my Best Of 2007 Reading list at the end of the year. Seriously, does the grade really matter in that case?

New group blog! Petticoats and Pistols features several writers of western romance. Gee, why would Wendy be promoting this one? And lookie here, Lorraine Heath is one of the contributors. Is this a sign of things to come? (Oh, and Patricia Potter too!)

Speaking of Lorraine Heath, Rosie and I hit another area used bookstore this weekend and I scored a lovely, pristine copy of Sweet Lullaby! The only "older" Heath novel I didn't have. And I got it for the extremely reasonable price of $6.50. Have I mentioned it looks brand spanking new? Not a spine crease to be found.

Talked to my folks this weekend and my mother informed me that she had to stop reading my blog at work. It seems her employer is cracking down and severely limiting Internet access. Her and one of her coworkers were making the habit of visiting my blog when they worked together. For shame Mother, not being the good little worker bee I know you are. To which The Boyfriend observed, "Man, your readership is diverse" to which I replied, "Um, not really." I'm just happily filling my own little niche here in cyberspace.

Are you saying I'm not diverse? We're diverse aren't we people?

Can I say sweeeeeettttt on your purchase of Sweet Lullabye? Have you read it by the way 'cause I think it's my favourite of all her Westerns. There's just something so heartbreaking about her hero Jake.

Wendy said...

Geez Kristie, what is my usual M.O.? Of course I haven't read it yet! LOL I'd say it would be my next read, but we both know that's a lie. Lately I've just been opening up the nearest RubberMaid tote and grabbing the first book that jumps out at me :)

I think that he thinks that only romance readers and the occasional librarian read my blog. I mean, that is mainly what I talk about (although the library stories are few and far between these days). For the record, my mother is neither - but she IS my mother, so not sure she really counts on the old stats.....

Thanks for linking to Petticoats & Pistols, Wendy! Smooches!

Hey I had P&P up too. ::tosses hair::

LOL did I send you Always to Remember? I did right? ACK I hope so cause I don't think I have it.

Although I have a copy of Morgan for you *eg*

Wendy said...

I have a copy of AtR - but can't recall now where I got it from. Either you or another reader - so if it was you, thanks!

sybil said...


So If I come across a copy sent it to Rosie *g*
