This website isn't going to be a community anytime soon - January 18th, 2008 8:49 PM

I may need a personality makeover - January 13th, 2008 6:12 PM
Maybe I'm just getting old, but I think I've gotten too soft. It's not that I don't like doing what I do, reviewing stuff and all, but recently, with the whole Cassie Edwards...
Cassie Edwards and me - January 11th, 2008 7:55 PM
I don't want to make a serious matter into something that is all about me, but it looks like I have to address this anyway since I see that some people have taken my last post...
Gratuitous Male Exploitation - January 10th, 2008 11:57 AM
Harlequin should be ashamed of themselves for such sleazy exploitation of the male sex in order to move their books. I feel so embarrassed for the genre, I tell you. 
Under-18 Only, Please - January 10th, 2008 1:17 AM
I'm slow, I know, but I just only realized how many romance-related sites out there have a gateway page telling people to bug off to Google or something if they are under 18. I...
G... L... B... uh, where's the T? - January 9th, 2008 10:35 PM
GLBT stands for Gay, Lesbians, Bisexuals, and Transgenders/Transsexuals, as you may know. I've seen some publishers use "GLBT" as a category for their works. Obviously, we have...

I just ventured into the comments section of Karen Scott's blog entry about the connection between Literotica and The Publishing House That Shall Not Be Named. I like...
A thought - January 5th, 2008 1:27 AM
I had this thought a few minutes ago and as usual, I am writing them down here without pausing to wonder whether I should be filtering myself before I blog.We already have the...
This is officially a Phaze-free zone - January 3rd, 2008 10:30 PM
After some thought, I've deleted the last two blog entries because the whole drama is pretty stupid. So, if you have missed it, email me and I will let you know what you missed....
Why I link to the blogs that I linked to - January 1st, 2008 11:32 PM
I've been asked of this before and I may as well answer it here. First off, I'd love to link to all 326,744 of you out there, I really do, but Bravenet in their eternal miserly...

Beat the Neopets - January 1st, 2008 3:18 PM

Warning - Suzanne Brockmann writes about TEH GHEY! - December 28th, 2007 6:45 PM
I don't know what to say about Lesley Dunlap's review of Suzanne Brockmann's All Through The Night. I normally don't want to comment on reviews on other websites or blogs but...
Criticizing Wikipedia - December 27th, 2007 11:28 PM
Oh dear, it looks like Wikipedia isn't such a good idea after all, in light of recent drama over the fact that one of their more senior administrators lied about his...
Animal Love - December 25th, 2007 8:24 PM
