With Apologies, etc.

Hi friends! So … you might’ve noticed lately I’ve been not as great with posting things. I don’t even know for how long, but for a while now we’ve had the lovely and wonderful Sadie helping out with formatting and scheduling, which has been wonderful. (Side note, is there such a thing as green/purple color blindness?)

I’m something of a >.> control freak though, so I do the actual scheduling. And have had some oops.

I’ve tried really hard I think the past year+ but … just to address the all encompassing *waves hand vaguely* but also that we might be on hiatus, and/or I’ll be back dating posts (like this one!), which is the “apologies” part – to the wonderful review crew, and guest authors.

It’s also a bit of a “sorry not sorry.” In that … I really am truly sorry when posts don’t go up as scheduled. I really do try with A Little Bit Tart, A Little Bit Sweet, and I want to keep trucking on. Especially considering the hundreds of dollars (literally) I’ve sunk into this site.

… The “not sorry” part is though … there have been times I couldn’t (or can’t) walk, or times when I’ve literally lost my words. So … sorry (not sorry!) to the authors etc who can’t understand me not being able to talk or have words to me personally, outweighs the importance of their post or edits going up in a “timely manner.”

And sure, some people don’t know about all that shit I’m dealing with behind the scenes. And they don’t have to. But things are what they are. And I just wanted to explain to all of you … there’s justĀ all this shit going on.

So – as it says – my apologies. Thank you for sticking with me. <3 Hopefully this too shall pass with good resolutions and such … and as before and always, I’ll keep on keeping on to the best of my ability. [And also sorry I’m just too tired etc to even find a picture to pretty this post up.]

Much love to you all. <3

Where’s the Romance, Man? (paging @TheRomanceMan3)

Hi friends! So, this is supposed to be the start of my “Men Who Read Romance” feature! Fun times! I figure, it’s good to start with an introduction. Also, as usual, the best laid plans are for naught, and this is no exception.

So I wanted to ask you – what would you want to know from a dude who reads romances?
Obviously it’ll be a monthly thing where I lure an unsuspecting maleask a guy who reads romances some questions. It’s just another counterpart to my Reader Posts (where I feature a reader monthly) and learning more about the diverse group of people who enjoy this genre.

Here is what I’m thinking so far.

1. What’s the first romance that you ever read?

2. How did you get started reading romance?

3. Who is your favorite author and what is your favorite romance novel?

4. What would you like to see more of in romances?

5. What is something you hate (or dislike strongly) in romances?

6. Do you browse the romance section at bookstores? If you saw another guy there, would you offer recommendations, or ask for any?

7. How involved are you in the romance community?

I’m playing with the last one. And I’m thinking nine questions (at least?) is good…

What do you think?

Incidentally, RM was supposed to have another guest spot, but I don’t think that’s going to asked him. I emailed him to ask him what was up and he said “FUCKED.” So, you know.

Maybe I should have used that as a post. Just

“Presenting: The Romance Man”

In his own words: Fucked. And left it at that.

Anyway, if you know any guys who read romances, please send them my way. I’d love to chat with them. I even have a contact form. And thanks for people who already have – please do let them know I’m having major internet problems though. I’m about to stab something. Myself even. Ugh. As always, “my posts” have tags indicative of current place in life. Enjoy.
