A love that could not be...

So, this is what I came across on my image search for "Starcrossed".

Obviously, it was not the only thing I came across, but it was one of the more amusing things. Since, of all things, I aspire to amuse, this is the photo I selected. The photo to launch my new quest...which implies that there was an old quest. There wasn't. But I digress.

Those of you who know me know that I named my novel "Star-crossed" because I thought it was an appropriate title. And it was. But what I failed to do was to research how many other books out there had the title Star-crossed. It turns out, a butt load. So, as penance, I am now going to read every book titled Star-crossed. That's the quest.

This is the first one I am reading:

Mostly because it appeared as "people who bought your book also bought this book" with Star-crossed: Journeys and, it was 99 cents. I am not sure why the one person who bought my book would also buy this book, but there you have it. I am 1/4 of the way into this novel and I like it quite a bit...much more than many of the 99 cent novels I have read. It might even be better than mine (gasp!).

So, Starcrossed book number one. Give it a read.

Get off the road...

I love this photo for its serene greenness but also because it makes me think of that scene in the Lord of the Rings. I'm sure you know the one.

This photo is particularly appropriate right now because after 3 days of having the kids back at school, things are looking pretty rosy. Or, at least, relatively green and shiny. But, I know I can't get too comfortable. Because any day now that Ringwraith is going to show up and pound the crap out of my hairy, Hobbit behind.

Holy shit!
