Guest blogging at Victoria J's

Victoria Janssen, fellow girl-on-girl avenger and totally blammo author of Harlequin Spice books like this:

And THIS (OMG, holy crapping damn this cover is HOT!!!):

...has been kind enough to invite me to guest blog over in her neck of the woods. Topic du jour: Writing f/f and f/f/m for the female gaze--a subject very dear to me and one that doesn't get addressed enough. The post goes live tomorrow (Friday, August 28), and I hope you all will come by to check it out and share your thoughts on how you think authors get it right, and how you think they get it so very, very wrong.

In other news, I spent the day moving kitchen stuff and shopping with my friend, trying to get her properly set up in her new digs. And miracle of miracles, the ex phoned to say he'd like the kids this weekend. He's been working 12 hour shifts, 7 days a week for about a month, so they've seen him for all of one afternoon since my friend and her kid moved in here the last week of July.

So guess what? I have the whole house to myself for two whole days. I ought to be able to get everything clean that fell to chaos over the last five weeks, watch some porn, and have the time and privacy to drill that hole in my skull to let the pressure out. Now where did I put the masonary bits...?

Hugs. :)

Whoa, those are some great covers. I'll need to go check out Ms. Janssen's stuff.

Blog reading will be late tomorrow due to work, but I'll get over there eventually : )

Well, Victoria writes erotic novels with a touch of romance. A little more "Fanny Hill" than your typical Harlequin. But yes, she writes some f/f in her books (as well as lots of other stuff), and she's been scratching her head a bit, wondering why some smooching between the ladies inspires such controversy in the romance community. I wubs her like I wubs an afternoon spent with a good book and some Caramilk bars.

And those covers are absolutely gorgeous, aren't they?
