- I'm just starting to get established at Goodreads via an author account. I think this is the URL I'm supposed to give out -- http://www.goodreads.com/kzsnow -- or maybe not. Beats me. If you have any tips about how to maximize the Goodreads experience, please let me know. Because, honestly, I'm clueless.
- A story that will not, I assure you, advance the art of lesbian fiction (but it's good for a laugh!): http://community.livejournal.com/weepingcock/419225.html
- Anybody know of a quick and foolproof way of transferring a blog to a three-column template? Blogger offers no templates in this format. I have way too much crap in my left sidebar and need desperately to break it up. Mind you, I am a techno-idiot. I can't emphasize this enough.
- Mobry's Dick, my next (and stand-alone) novel (yes, novel) for Loose Id will be out in June. Side note, brought on by one of Tam's comments on her blog: Originally, Mobry's Dick was a novella with a sequel. When the sequel was completed, my editor and I agreed the stories it would work better published together as a two-part novel. (So, Tam, if you read it, you won't have to wait to find out if Cameron Waters "craves the butt secks.")
Finally, that pesky M/M reading challenge Kris tossed out just to
fuck with us nudge us out of our comfort zones . . .
I'm afraid I won't be participating, at least not by posting anything. I did read a book outside my comfort zone and even wrote up a fairly long review. The story's two elements I assumed would tax my patience didn't tax it much at all. However, nearly everything else about the novella did get on my nerves, and since it wouldn't be seemly (or wise) to criticize the work of another m/m author on a public blog, I'm not going to post the review.
Besides, I know how I feel when one of my books is savaged, so it would be grossly insensitive and hypocritical of me to make unflattering comments about somebody else's work. I just can't bring myself to use the phrase, "It didn't work for me but might for other readers," because everybody knows that's Reviewer Speak for "I think this book sucked sewer water through a felching straw, and I can't imagine how anybody with a full brain could not see its countless, shrieking flaws."
I'm just going to have to wait and post about something I genuinely like. That way, I won't have to worry about my ass ending up in another sling.
