I’ve got to tell you, the last thing we need is a new Yahoo Group. And truly I believe in setting those individual profile settings to “Don’t bother me until the big asteroid is about to slam into the Earth’s surface.” And yet, since my ego knows no set boundaries, I’ve gone and created a Yahoo Group of my own, and you can join it here.
I’m sure you’re asking yourself ‘why would I join another Yahoo Group?’ The answer is quite simple. To please me. There I’ve said it. (And yeah, I feel bad having said it, sort of.) But honestly. I got into the whole writing gig not because I’m a writer per se, but because I’m an obsessed fan. I read a lot of books. I’m always looking for more. I like to talk about them, read what other authors have to say about their own work and the work of others, and yes, I want to know if anyone out there can recommend books I haven’t even heard of.
I like to talk about a lot of other things too, philosophy, poetry, cooking, and the price of white truffles. I like to exchange recipes, and although I don’t use recipes when I cook, I collect cookbooks. I like to write freebies, just for fun. I’d like to have contests. I’m not even afraid to talk religion or world events as long as people play nice.
I’m going to hit this whole Yahoo Group thing with everything I’ve got because I know there are a lot of you out there who are just looking for a place to share what you know about Romance Writing, M/M novels, shoes, and ships, and ceiling cats, and other kinds of things.
So I’m inviting you to join my group, and as a special incentive, on January First 2009, (my twins’ birthday) I’m going to have them pull a group member’s name out of a hat, and whoever wins will receive, from me, an autographed copy of the print version of Crossing Borders, an e-copy of The Long Way Home, and an e-copy of St. Nacho’s. Whatdya say? Are you in?
