I wanna know your dirty little secrets...
People hear romance novel and automatically think easy sex, dumb blond with big boobs and small brain, right? (Picture me repeatedly slamming head into desk) I know I know ignorance is contagious, but I didn't realize stupidity was as well.
Awwww, I feel better now. Ranted and got that nasty monkey off my back. Now let's get to this week's topic. Are you a dirty girl? Do you dream about being kidnapped by hot alien men? Or are you more into eternal love with a man on a permanent liquid diet?
Think about what you like, your favorite authors then stop. With the answers pinging back and forth in the vast emptiness of your mind fill in a few questions for me...no, you won't be graded. Jeez, you think I've got the time or attention span to grade you people...oh please. I'm running an imaginary world with death threats, mutiny and sex harassment and everything.
I read my favorite author because___________
Her/His heros make me feel______________
His/Her heroines are__________________
The one thing I enjoy the most _____________________
This author always makes me_____________________
Okay, now suppose JUST suppose your favorite authors were imprisoned in my dungeon (Hey, it's my world I'll do what I want). No new books by these fab people coming out for the next six months or so. What do you do? Why you check out new authors of course. No, you do not come to my castle and try to break into the dungeon. I have sexy hot Scottish guards protecting my interest. They will do bad and possibly enjoyable things to you. Umm, I mean they will...oh heck never mind. I'll have all of you storming my castle now, attacking my poor half naked royal guards.
New authors how do you pick them, why do you pick them & where do you go to pick them from? Ha, that sounds kind of kinky when you think about it. Hmmm, so formulate your answers then add them to the list I made above. No, Elece, I still won't be grading these. Though each time you ask me it will cost you a drink at the bar!!
I go to ________________ to find new authors.
I always look in ___________ for new books or authors to read.
If an author can make me _____________ I'll buy her .
I liked book A from this author which means I'll__________ her backlist.
When I find a new writer I really enjoy I _________________.
Now, be good peoples & share with the rest of the class your thoughts, observations and whatnot. We're all dying to know. Plus I'm nosy to begin with.
Have a great week people!!
