This little tidbit popped up...

While doing my message board lurking I discoverd this little tidbit of info:

Drop Dead Gorgeous by Linda Howard [11/28/06] -- $7.99 -- Paperback Only -- Believe this is the book referred to below:

And, I have a note down that according to Page 19 in the March RT BookClub, LH is writing or going to write a sequel for "To Die For".

"It won't feature the Mallory sisters. Set just a few months after the end of it's predecessor, it will focus on Blair and Wyatt"


Thanks to Janie on the RT Boards.

A little note to those who question authors' fashion sense, check the copyright date before assuming the author is completely clueless. Sybil this was on an AAR board. Somewhere on that same board someone quoted that 90% of romance readers don't read prologues--could that be possible?

They also say that 99% of statistics are made up on the spot. Just like that one *g*

I don't believe a word of it. I certainly read prologues, after all, sometimes it can be an essential part of a book.

LOL--thank you I feel much better!!

Of course I read the prologue. I might not read the copyright page or the acknowledgements, but I do read the prologue. It's part of the story.

Nicole, I'm thinking Karen's right and that statistic was made up. I agree it's part of the story, and it's usually an important part of the backstory.

I'm one of the geeks who read everything between the covers. I once saw someone quote praise from Harriet K--thought that was pretty funny.

Yea, of course I read prologues, epilogues - all logues. I mean they're part of the story. I don't believe that stat either.

And I for one would love to see another story with Blair and Wyatt. I loved To Die For

Tara Marie said...

Kristie, To Die For wasn't my favorite LH, but being a fangirl, I look forward to anything she writes.

Jane said...

Oh, Prologues are part of the story. I thought that they were excerpts like the first page in a book. I didn't know you had to read them. Figured that they were for extra credit or something.




JUST KIDDING. I don't always look at the maps or the character list or the "definitions" at the front (ala JR Ward). Do those count as part of the Prologue? I will say I don't quite understand the "Prologue" "Epilogue" thing. Why just not an extra chapter with dates?

LOL welllll I have a habit of reading the end first at times.

but I always read the prologue at some point ;)

What? Sometimes you need to do a pulse check.. make sure key people are still alive and shit.
