The Pond has been experiencing some comment errors recently, and we’re trying to keep up with WordPress’ updates, which unchecks the Allow Comments box – thus our problem – and with Sybil playing with buttons that are better left alone! So bear with us, and keep trying to leave those comments. We should be back [...]
Yes, yes…I know I’m late getting my list ready for you, faithful reader. Life gets busy sometimes and I get distracted. But here I am with my list! Yay!! Onward!
The last couple of years when I’ve chosen my top books of the year, I’ve had a difficult time naming my number one book. Well, this year it’s been much easier. Where I have difficulty is choosing one book over another in the same series by an author. So I made up my own rules!
I like reading. Always have, probably always will. It started with easy stuff, like Nancy Drew and the Animorphs. (Not that Nancy Drew and the Animorphs aren’t awesome.) Then my third-grade teacher gave me Watership Down by Richard Adams. I almost always list that one on my favorite books list because it convinced me that [...]
I’m Laura J and I love to read.
You want the truth? Well some of it, anyway. I’m an adult and I write novels for adults. And I love writing them, so I’m not about to stop. I write for Ellora’s Cave, Samhain Publishing, Loose-Id Publishing and Total E-Bound, and I love it. The best job I’ve ever had.
You should send that into Reader’s Digest. They have a page for people like you. – The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Once Upon a Time I was one of those kids who was always reading books until the wee hours, under the covers, with a flashlight. I always thought my mom didn’t know how much I sneaked my reading, but have since learned she knew alllll about it and just didn’t mind – she was just [...]
Okay, so, about me…let’s see. I love reading, I love books, I love holding books, buying books, sharing books, and even just looking at my books.
Final Update: If I have this right… ONE. THOUSAND. ONE. HUNDRED. FIFTY. DOLLARS! WE DID IT!!! WE DID IT!!! Our current goal is 260 comments… but I’m holding on hope that more people will step in with donations (of any amount) if we hit higher numbers! <3 Keep it coming! And to think, this started [...]
My thoughts on RomCon are all over the place. If you want an extremely detailed minute by minute playbook, this is not where you’ll get that. RomCon? Well, I’d do it again. I’ve never been to any conferences/conventions before 2010, but this year I’ve hit up RT, Lori Foster’s get together, and now RomCon. I [...]
Ok – so I’ve decided to celebrate random holidays each year. Last year it was the Chinese/Lunar New Year. This year, after a quick and random, totally unscientific twitter poll… it was decided 2010 I’d highlight Earth Day.

As we all know, there are some crazies on teh interwebs. We’ve all heard about them, read them, or even experienced them. If you’re an author, you might also get the bonus of getting some crazy emails. Fan letters, hate letters, the works. Every so often, an author will mention a “speshul” email on twitter. [...]
