Mimmi - Night, Marila
Linda Jones - Cinderfella -- I can't type.
Pam Crooks - Sara, are you going to Denver?
moosehog - Conderfella???? Do you mean Cinderfella???
RondaT - Huh, Mel?
Sara - Ah, CINDERFELLA
Kiki - Linda's books always makes me ROFLMAO
Sara - great fun read!
kitkat - Well each heroine who takes responsibility for her choices equates to each author taking responsibility for the choices they make in writing the plot lines and characterizations they do.
Mimmi - But it makes us hate the villian that much more---so.....it can be a good thing
Sue C - Yep, Kiki. It's www.wordreams.org. I haven't updated in a while, so ignore the contest info. It's long over.
Lea - we don't want attractive villians
Sara - yes, going to Denver. Expecting drinks from you guys
moosehog - Cinderfella was a great cover
Melaniejaxn - Yes, yes, Melanie has been reading social anthropology books again
Linda Jones - Thanks, kiki.
kitkat - Then each author must take responsibility for the negatives and the positives that come out of each plot line and each characterization they do.
BonnieJean Hamilton - gotta go...sorry I can't chat tonight...to much going on in real time
Kiki - ok I'll bookmark it.......thanks......and hey, update it will you?
Pam Crooks - Sara, can't wait to meet you.
kitkat - Lea, but attractive villians make it much more interesting, because all villians in REAL life aren't necessarily ugly and scagly
Mimmi - What was the name of the one that was the gone w/ the wind spoof? I loved that !
Sue C - I disagree, Lea. I think an attractive villan is all the more evil for the contrast
moosehog - Bonnie
Lea - true
RondaT - I have to duck as that stuff flies over my head, Melanie.
Kiki - Linda.......when's your next category coming out?
Sara - ah, Pam, I am EXTREMELY boring, my daughter is the fun one!
Melaniejaxn - Authors have very few places to lay blame if we don't get our work done. I've TRIED blaming my editor but he just wouldn't cooperate...
PegWaide - I can accept a villainnottaking responsibility because often times that is what his is the cause of his problem and where he is in life
moosehog - Sara , I finally saw your photo. Not what I expected . I am still looking for Cissy's
RondaT - Melissa, that was Sandra Hill's Frankly My Dear, I think
Sara - I like sexy handsome villains. And I love rough rugged seem bad heroes. Just my taste
Linda Jones - Kiki - Besides this month -- June. Boone's story.
LadyA - yes some of the nastiest villians I know in real life are the prettiest
julie kenner - hi again <G>
Kiki - I concur with Sue C............in romantic suspense and gothics, the villains are usually good looking......some are main characters..
Melaniejaxn - I like my villains smart and double-died black with villainy. Usually.
Pam Crooks - I have to go in a few minutes, and if I sound stupid for asking this question, I apologize, but who is Anne Knoll? A pseudonym?
PegWaide - Thats why I love ya Mel - yu are so deep and I'm so well hmmmm
Ann K99 - hi all
julie kenner - Restarted my computer. Maybe that'll do the trick
Lea - hi Ann
kitkat - Lea, just think would you have taken the T-1000 more seriously as a villian in Terminator 2 if he had looked like Ted Nugent instead of Robert Patrick.
Mimmi - That's it, Ronda LOL, I could not remember
Kiki - oh goodie................all the more my dear!
moosehog - Julie , what are you doing wrong???
O - Ok who are you Sue?
Linda Jones - Sara! You will be in Denver? Great.
Mimmi - I got her book, Pam. I don't know, just thought she was new
julie kenner - The screen just freezes up. Grrrrr.
Melaniejaxn - Fun, Peggy. You are FUN

RondaT - Peggy, you are scoping us out fun places to hang out in Denver, right?
Ann K99 - Sue..it'll be nice meeting you in Las Vegas
kitkat - Lea, I like his music too, but he's not the most attractive man on the face of the earth.
moosehog - Hey , I like Ted Nugent
julie kenner - It's true Claudia. I feel so inadequate
O - i didn't see that
Mimmi - Julie---I think the gremlins take turns picking on people. Last week I got booted about 10 times, then my coputer died
Chessie - I have to go too. I'll talk to everyone later.
Chessie - Bye
Melaniejaxn - It's funny that you should mention Ted Nugent. Didn't he do Motor City Madhouse?
Chessie - - from 184.108.40.206 on 4/29 at 9:33pm EST
Lea - honest I think this site is cursed half the time
PegWaide - Scoping and plotting and planning (hehehe)

Lea - I just remember his cat scratch fever
LadyA - I did you a good plug at Amazon, love heavy historicals
kitkat - Peg, I don't know how sensitive a topic this is, but....
moosehog - Claudia , Unwrapped was the best.Hubby bought it as a joke because he came down Christmas eve in nothing but a ribbon .And your cover had the man with a ribbon.
JanetMiller - Hi all!
Kiki - What's up next for you Ronda???
TriceCyn2 - back....Hi Ann
Sue C - Will this tour be as special as the one we had in New Orleans?
Melaniejaxn - Ann, is that wise? Mixing alcohol and caffiene?
Ann K99 - HI Val
PegWaide - There is gambling only an hour away - and actually downtown has allsorts of fun places
Ann K99 - hi Trice
TriceCyn2 - oh SueC you are an author then????
kitkat - As far as responsibility goes, what is more irresponsible, a pedophile or a pedophile who masquerades as something akin to a preist, a cleric, or someone in a position of trust.
RondaT - Violets Are Blue in July, Kiki, then Call Of The Moon in November, thanks for asking.
Lea - hi Val
Ann K99 - Melanie..I was offering it to you all
claudia dain - Yes, count me in, PegWaide
O - Are you coming to Rhode Island on your speical toru

Sue C - Yes, Trice, there is an author named Sue Charnley <G>
Kiki - Oh I gotta write this down Ronda.....brb
Mimmi - The second, Kat. I am Catholic---ugh, not a good topic right now, huh?
TriceCyn2 - oooo I got you now Sue...WEG...lol
kitkat - Ann, I'll take the coffee and tea.
Sara - oh, Peggy, I will look forward to this!!!
Mary F - W

Mary F - WB Rod
Sara - *remembering to stock extras in the suitcase*
Cissy - sounds fun!
TriceCyn2 - WB RC
Ann K99 - see you in LV, Val
LadyA - Sue they seems to be ignoring you...lol
kitkat - Mimmi, I know it's not a good topic. My grandparents are catholic and they are outraged. So I can speak froma family perspective on this.
Sue C - WEG?
RondaT - The last is the worst, IMO, Kitkat. But any person who does that should be shot.
claudia dain - having trouble keeping up , but thanks to all the compliments. I hope To Burn flies off the shelves and they have to print a million more! Thank you for the good review, Lady A
Kiki - Mimmi......don't let what's happening in the media, etc. effect your belief in God.....
RCasteel - thanks, I sent Texas Ice off to Sabrina,
PegWaide - The rockies are in town so maybe we can go looking for a few major leagu guys - they do go out and play at night

Sue C - There's just too much action tonight LadyA
kitkat - Ronda, youknow my story, so you should understand I have a bit of experience in that area.
RondaT - Hey, Kathy, thanks!
PegWaide - Mel - do you think it made a diff that Belle was not reviewed in the right onth of RT?
Mimmi - LOL, I meant media wise. I swear, if one more person tries to 'save' me....LOL, it won't!!
Pam Crooks - Good advice, Kiki
LadyA - Well I KNOW you are an author.....giggle
Melaniejaxn - Peggy, I think it probably did
Sara - things to survive after the "special" tour, Lea
Kiki - Seee Kath?? No wonder I love all your reviews and recommendations.....you haven't been wrong yet
Melaniejaxn - Belle was cursed from the inception you know. Or do I mean conception?
Sara - she took off with my daughter last year!!
Mimmi - No, Kiki--I won't.
Pam Crooks - Kathy, you're so good about talking up ALL our books!
val - btw must remember to tell Robin that popping the bag, resealing and putting it into a cardboard box works v well
KatBos - Kiki, it's a good thing we don't live near each other. LOL We'd get in serious trouble!!
Lea - what special tour
PegWaide - When I talked with RT today - she said she didn't see my review or next month - Chris is going to check so just wondering
Mary F - Why was it cursed Mel?
Ann K99 - Julie K--looking forward to your new book
Kiki - Just remember what I always tell you though, Kath......I AM Julie's #1 fan!!!! And Tina's....but YOU are Trish's #1........ok?
kitkat - So there are varying viewpoints to take on responsibiltiy with hero/heroine versus villian.
Ann K99 - Hey KatBos <G>
julie kenner - Thanks Ann!
KatBos - Pam, I just want all of you to keep feeding my addiction. It's a personal thing. LOL
LadyA - well Belle is a delight!!
PegWaide - Your daughter returned safe and sound - now she's not coming this year is she?
KatBos - Hey Ann.
RondaT - KitKat.
julie kenner - LOL! Glad you guys got that worked out <g>
Melaniejaxn - Peggy, I am sorry if they missed you. I don't know what's up with RT.
Sara - ah, Kathy, you keep being selfish that way. It HELPS all of us
moosehog - Kiki , You have to share Tina and Julie with me
Kiki - Ann.........have you bought AP yet?? (Julie's book)? We all have to buy it this week to help get it on the bestseller list where it belongs!!!
KatBos - Kiki, we'll talk about it.
