I hate to remind you (as if you didn’t already know) but Summer is almost over now that Labour Day is on the horizon. Fall is probably my favourite season because of the leaves changing colour and the temperature getting cooler, but those of you who love the beach probably wish that summer would last forever. I’m sending you a bucket of sand for your inner child.
I read in one of our national newspapers a few days ago that the Damson Dene Hotel in England’s Lake District had replaced the Gideon Bible with Fifty Shades of Grey. I hope the world isn’t coming to an end. 😮 The owner, who bought the hotel from the Methodists a decade ago, said he was looking for a replacement for the bible for sometime and now he has what he thinks is a great alternative “because everybody is reading ‘Fifty Shades of Grey,’ we thought it would be a hospitable thing to do, to have this available for our guests, especially if some of them were a little bit shy about buying it because of its reputation.” 😎 “Interestingly, we’ve had a lot of e-mails from the States, quoting scripture at us, presumably from the Bible Belt,” Mr. Denby told the Vancouver Sun.

So moving on…. Thanks to everyone who left questions for Kaje Harper. Some of you apparently are huge fans of this author and decided to post every question to which you would like answers. 😆
Next week I’ll be asking you for questions for another interview – dueling writers Ethan Day and Geoff Knight. If you ever wondered how these two egos could set everything aside and write a book together, this is your chance to ask them how they did it without killing each other. To Catch a Fox will debut just before GRL. I can’t wait to find out how much fun they had. This is the first line of the blurb “Sex. Murder. Blackmail. Revenge. Life in the Big Easy can be a real bitch” :hysterics:
This week I’m writing a post on series books. We all love them, but why?
Thank you for continuing to vote in the poll: Readers: How Do You Like Your M/M Romance. The comments about the amount of sex you want in these books were quite illuminating. If you haven’t seen the post here is a link.
