Who's your book boyfriend.Take two!

Take two:

So, Jessica Rabbit tagged me for this. :) Let's see....

We all have our favourite book boyfriends and now you have the chance to create one just for yourself and your fantasies! How do you play? Fill out the quiz bellow, post a picture of sexy man and tag five (5) other book addicts to do the same. Don't forget to pop to their blogs as let them know they have been tagged! Once tagged... you have do do the same, grab the button, answer the questions, and keep it rolling! But don't forget the picture of the sexy man! It doesn't have to match your fantasy man, just a little eye candy for the rest of us... heheheee!

1- Hair colour and style
I tend to go for long hair, dark or blonde, depending on the boy. ;)

2- Eye colour and facial features
Eyes, gray or green--or brown, either color the eyes will be soulful and sexy.

3- Height and body type
I'm short but most of my heroes are taller than me, 5'6"-5'8" is good, not much paunch, but not bulky weightlifter, either. I expect him to be able to handle an airship or a a few baddies, if necessary, though. Does he have a black belt in something? That'd be excellent too.

4- Visible age

5- Bangability ie: kinky/bi/size
Ahem.... his eyes are all for the girls definitely--but not into pain at all, unless he has to kick someone's A&&.

6- Human or other
part alien, or he could be full shapeshifter.

7- Paranormal skills
Ability to mind-meld might prove interesting. ;)

8- Interests
Literature, movies, music, science, and the ability to do my taxes for me!

9- Habitat
Definitely a city boy in a nice luxurious mansion, with many rooms, and cable!

10 Special skills
Ability to drive away anyone that bothers me, would be perfect (think Aragorn), but if he's got some sort of magical ability, that'd be great too!

I tag....
Le Femme Readers

A Bluestocking's Place

Don't forget to come back to the Gutter Girls and let us know you posted so we can check out your man.

And now the eye candy!
Thanks for tagging me, Jessica!

Erica Ridley blogs at Barnes and Noble

I almost feel guilty posting one more time today, but this is about a new writer I've met.
Tampa author Erica Ridley, author of the Regency novel Too Wicked to Kiss is blogging over at Barnes and Noble Book Clubs this afternoon. You’ll also find details there on how to win copies of her novel. So drop on by there, and say hello, and check out her fine new offering!

I've also posted about several other author related web happenings this week, in a short article over at the Examiner. Go here to see that round up, if you wish.

Library Girl Reads February contest(deadline tonight!)

Anyone up for some good reads? I'm so late on this, but Library Girl Reads is hosting her February giveaway, here. Unfortunately, the contest ends tonight. :( Said I was late in finding it. Sorry.
But if you try, good luck to you!

Meet Senior Editor Selina McLemore

This is an interesting post I found (thanks, Julie!) at the Ninc blog about how an editor works (and chooses new authors!). Thought other budding authors might find it so too.
Meet Senior Editor Selina McLemore

For Jaci, and other budding synopsis writers. :)

Hey, you were asking about writing Query letters, the other day? Pub Rants has a great example here, as does Fantasy author  Lisa Shearin, here; also check out RomCom/Momlit/Mystery author Kathy Carmichael's examples. Even if the sample queries are not in the genre you write, believe me, I hear every little bit helps.

Can't we all just get along? ;) Or readers, unite...please?

You know, one of the things I dislike about being a reader is this snobbishness that crops up in the debate of genres vs. literary works.  Personally, I read both: I adore Virginia Woolf, and Tolkien/Shearin/Clarke/Rawn/Moorcock/Rom com author Kathy Carmichael and so many that so wrong??? :) Mystery author Cathy Pickens doesn't think so. Read her interesting post on the subject here.

An author's "local" book signing.

For any fans in the Tampa area, YA Author Lisa McMann is going to be doing a book signing this week at Inkwood Books in South Tampa.  Full details in the article here at the Examiner.

Who is your favorite book couple? Meme

This from La Femme Readers' blog.
Herm...this is a tough one. I think they change all the time, but right off the bat, I have to say I'm pretty much in love with Rain and Ellysetta from C.L. Wilson's Tairen Soul series. :) Second to them would be Lucan and Cael from Susan Kearney's Pendragon Cycle, and lastly Terence and Rachel (poor Rachel) from Virginia Woolf's The Voyage Out. So those would be my the moment. This can always change later... Who are your favorites?

And please link this meme back to me, and La Femme Readers? :) Can't wait to see the answers!

Changes coming

Hi folks. I just wanted to alert you to the fact that I'm going to be making some changes. Don't worry, the content on books and writing will remain the same; the look is what's changing, and I hope to have some exciting writing/bookish things to add soon. More on that soon. For now, please excuse the dust!

A Writing Opportunity

This one is for the Romance writers. In popping around the web, I learned that the fine small press publisher, Samhain Publishing LTD, is gearing up for yet another novella anthology. This one is called Red Hot Winter and subs are open until June. Full details here:
So, campers, ;) get those pens a scribbling and good writing, everyone!

And finally

So, I've decided I should probably start actually blogging here, more often than not. What do you think? I'm looking into how to promote this little thing a bit more too--who knows how that will end up going. But it's an idea, at any rate.

So how was your Valentine's Day? Did your sweetie have something nice planned for your day?

Around my house we don't tend to do a lot for the holiday. Oh, my hubby knows how to spoil me, don't get me wrong, but I'm not so much the flowers and candy girl. :) Give me stuffed animals, and I am happy! This year was no exception. So the stuffed animal collection is bigger by one, and we can write this down as another good Valentine's day. Actually, as an extra added tradition, the 14th was my favorite grandma's birthday, so I tend to think of her on the day as well as stuffed animals and snuggling day. :)

In other news, though I felt a little under the weather, I had a good time, and learned a lot, at the romance writers meeting this week. Thanks to Vicki and the girls for setting up our guest speaker. It was well worth it. And thanks to all my pals for the thumbs up and congratulations they sent my way on the recent acceptance of one of my stories. That just tickled me. Y'all are the best!

My review of Diary of a Confessions Queen

By the way, I have a review of Kathy's new book up, as of yesterday. You can read it here: I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. :)

This is so cool

I'm just tickled pink about this, I got word from author Kathy Carmichael that my review of her last book, Hot Flash, is quoted in her new book, Diary of A Confessions Queen.(*eeee*)

How cool is that??? I can't wait to see it!
It's not included in the promo flat I have, nor in the review copy I have of Confessions Queen, so I had no idea until this morning.

If anyone wants to get it (and I highly recommend it), your local bookstores might have a copy, or you can get it here

She's a really nice gal, and tells a funny-as-hell story, so I recommend her, heartily. :) Still... woohoo! I got quoted--in print! :) I had to share.

And, in other news, I have a new article for you, on the new releases--and a few blogger posts to look out for. You can see it here. Enjoy, and have fun at the chats!

Posted story for Haiti Project--acceptance

Hi everyone. I hope y'all are well, not too cold. :)

Yes, I have some news. Crossed Genres accepted my short story "The Captain's Merciful Death" for their compilation of "posted stories for Haiti relief" project! :) Go to their site *points at link*, and you'll find my name (Julianne Draper), click through and you can read the story. :)

Yes, it's not an *actual* publication, but I'm tickled, and hopefully it can help out some of those folks in need.
