Uber Author Plays Mental Ping Pong

Mood Today:



Has this ever happened to you?

I was reading the news this morning that Prez Bush was caught in "real" conversation by a live mike at the G-8 meeting, at one point using a bad word while talking about the current crisis between Israel and Hizbollah, at another point remarking about Diet Coke and joking about a gift from PM Blair, etc. etc. G-8, I was thinking, what did G-8 stand for? Group of Eight Nations. And suddenly Katherine Neville's book, The Eight, came to mind.

Neville's story is one of my favorite books, and more intricate and original than that Uber Conspiracy written by dat man named Brown. And it's all about political intrigue, uber-spying, with a supernatural twist too, with powerful men trying to rule the world. Now I want to do a reread and I don't have the time! Wahhhhhhh.

I was reading Linda Howard's Cover Of Night and didn't finish it because I was sidetracked by her fabulous oldie but forever goodie Son In The Morning. Probably because I was looking for the missing alpha male who doesn't BLUSH. Put that as #5 for that post a few days back about what Alpha Males Don't Do. NO BLUSHING, 'kay? No stammering around the heroine either. Sigh. So I was thinking of the anti-blushing, anti-stammering antidote and for some reason, Black Niall came to mind. Off I went to do a reread, even though I really didn't have the time. God. Me. Lurvs. That. Book.

**************************

I'm stuck writing the prologue that will not quit. It's going to be the longest prologue evah. Why not make it Chapter One? Well, then it wouldn't be a prologue! Besides, it's the hero's past and it's full of information that he wants to share with the readers. He's a COS commando, and an uber-alpha--he wouldn't let his writer's screams about length and umm...rest of the plot to stand in his way! Right from the get-go, he sneaks into an apartment, steals a sack of important weapons, and wait...finds time to do a little seduction ;-)! Definitely not the blushing and stammering type of dude, this young man.

Bear with me while I learn. The first button likes the POST. The second button likes the BLOG site. Please help me by "liking" me. Thanks!

Hmmmm... Does this mean you're comparing your hero to that long-faced DOG?!? You're the kitty trying to get the Prologue written and your hero's the dog holding you down? I just hope that means more of His Jedness!

And Black Niall!!! He's The Alpha! If you had to be distracted, he's a fantastic reason. =) Love that man. Love that book!

LOL. So true. Cover of Night's Hero BLUSHED? OMG that's horrible! We all need to clap and say "I believe Linda's newer books will stop being crapshots" over and over again. Shrug. It worked for Tinkerbelle. And you know, if it takes you an extra yr. to get the books as good as you can get them I don't care. Shudders, Linda's books are going down the tube because she's doing what the publishers want, getting them out earlier, and so the quality is going down. Along with blushing heroes. Sigh.

Katherine,
LOL. It's more like..."Let sleeping dogs lie" and obviously, something is not listening to that adage ;-).

And Black Niall makes my heart beat faster. And I'm totally in AWE of that book!!!


Athena,
I think Linda Howard doesn't need to be dictated by publishers' edicts ;-). She's a goddess!!!

That said, I have to admit that the blushing and stammering hero is totally not my cuppa.
