This and That, I Should be Asleep

Well, it's 11:30 at night and I should be asleep, my son gets up at 5:30 every morning.

I've been picking over Maili's keepers list and just finished reading Theresa Weir's Cool Shade. And all the way through it I thought it was kind of depressing, until I reached the last page:

"There was one more thing she had to ask him. 'Your old music. Most of them are love songs. Who did you write them for?'


'Just how gullible do you think I am?' she asked,even though she'd thought the very same thing. 'You've only known me a few months.'

'I've known you a lifetime. Here' He touched his chest, his heart. 'you've always been right here.'

She smiled up at him through her tears...."

Does it get any better than that???

Sybil has a link to Alison Kent's blog, which has the RWA graphical standards letter of explanation. My first thought was what a load of crap...but Maili made a comment about covers (we know how much Maili loves covers--LOL). Is it possible the RWA is trying to persuade publishers to improve romance/romantica/erotica covers. If so they're really pissing off some of the membership in the process. If they don't care about the "content", what's the big deal with the covers? Isn't that what all this comes down to? Though it does have a Nazi "we've set the standards, therefore you must goosestep and follow our lead" feel to it.

My brain is hurting from too much thinking, I'm going to bed.

Romance Chicken Soup for the Soul. >:Pptthhhptt:<

But you know? There is a kind of romance for every taste. And somedays ... I LOVE the sappy stuff too. Just don;t tell anyone I admitted it.
