Murialisa - i think i need to work on my brother though... he gave me an unabridged copy of les mis... which is gorgeous but LONG and i've tried to make it through it before and it hasn't happened.... maybe that would be a good airport book....
Alice Chambers - Will do..
gerri - I don't know Melanie....it all depends if he is good or not...
Murialisa - and a book on asian history.... history is good, i'm not so keen on asia....
Sherryl - well....we all must have been "very good" this year...

Mari - I can't wait to tuck into them. Santa came through beautifully
Sherryl - Hey back, Rhonda....see any white stuff around your area of Texas

CaroleAnn - No snow here, gerri (San Francisco Bay Area).
Cel - I knew you wrote some of the SECRETS novella's Alice
MelanieJ - LOL-- no way am I sharing this. He said one cute thing though-- he said he hoped it didn't sound too tame. That it was hard writing romance to a romance writer
Genie - what name Alice?
Alice Chambers - You can order from www.redsagepub.com
RondaThompson - Hi gerri. Good to see you here. Are you keeping warm?
Alice Chambers - I'm Alice Gaines.
Mari - Cool. I thought I would only get one of the volumes, but Santa was good to me.

gerri - I'm trying Ronda....but after getting our gas bill....Its going to be cold in the house
Alice Chambers - Thanks, Patti!
Mari - I have to go back to lurk mode, but hopefully not for long. bbs
Cel - Mari, I gather your dad used that order form you gave him?
Alice Chambers - Genie, try Barnes and Noble online. We're boycotting that other online book store.
MelanieJ - I think I'd better "go to work" tomorrow. I have been lolly-gagging all this week instead of writing
Nanette - i really want VOL #3 and #6
gerri - Alice our bookstore sells Secret....I have looked at them but never brought one....Guess I will now
RondaThompson - Yikes, Gerri. Ours is always high and we have a woodburning stove even!
Alice Chambers - Thanks, Gerri
Genie - Barnes and Nobel don't have it, neither does Amazon
RondaThompson - I goofed off all month! Well, I was busy with Christmas stuff, but I do need to write
marelou - the price of heating oil went up to $1.60 this month..it's going to kill me!!
MelanieJ - The electricuty and gas bills are staggering. We got a Christmas card from the gas company warning us that rates had trippled... hohoho
gerri - We have a fireplace.....I guess it is helping...So far everyone I have asked our has been the lowest
Alice Chambers - Bummer, Genie. If you have to, buy it from Am*z*n
Genie - I preordered it in Nov from Amazon and by Dec 20 they still didn't have it, I told them to shove it!
Murialisa - what's red sage's website?
bryony - Secrets are just that in Australia. I haven't found one book yet.
Nanette - you can order it from Red Sage Pub.
Alice Chambers - Not Amazon? I thought for sure they did. Search under my name Alice Gaines
Alice Chambers - www.redsagepub.com
Cissy - Muri, if you click on their banner here it will take you there
MelanieJ - Drats, I was hoping Lynsay would be here. She's really in the great white north!
Alice Chambers - Am*z*n is the pitts!
Genie - nope-none, they have Vol 6 listed, but I never receieved it...
gerri - brb.....Need to do some folding
Genie - I'm going to check Borders.com this week
Alice Chambers - Hey, if you like the blues you need this album -- BB King and Eric Clapton.
Peggy Waide has timed out.
Cissy - Speaking of which, I'm trying to decide whether to switch Writerspace to B&N or Borders. Do you ladies have any advice for me?
Cel - I sent my order to Red Sage Pub for all 6 of the SECRETS books last week.
Murialisa - i like b&n better than borders
Genie - I usually like B&N Cissy
Alice Chambers - Cissy, thanks for switching. I don't know which is better.
MelanieJ - Cissy, I have had a couple problems with Borders-- like they told me they couldn't get the new Laurell K Hamilton when it came out.
peggywaide - logged on. - 12/25 at 9:09pm EST
RondaThompson - I don't have Borders, here, Cissy, so I have to use Barnes & Nobel now that we're boycotting Amazon
Alice Chambers - Thanks, Cel. I sure hope you like them.
Helena - B & N is bigger
Genie - wb peggy
marelou - wb Peggy
peggywaide - I'm back-my whole computer shut down-it's been very weird lately but I hate to take it in
Alice Chambers - brb
Cel - wb Peggy
Cel - Alice, a friend loaned me Volume 3 and that sold me on the books.
Nanette - - 12/25 at 9:10pm EST
MelanieJ - Also, Borders often does not put of book covers. I know that isn't critical, but many people like to see the book covers
Cissy - you know, there are MORE reasons not to link to Amazon that the whole "used book" thing. There's also the fact that Amazon doesn't report sales to the NYT list
peggywaide - B&N/Borders-I've never used either so I have no idea
Murialisa - yeah, borders rarely has book covers or even little blurbs on a lot of the books
Nanette - oops
Genie - wb Nanette
Murialisa - at least they don't on the books that i look at...
marelou - wb Nanette ..
SueK - wb Nanette
Alice Chambers - I hear ecampusbooks has lots of romance. I haven't tried it myself.
Genie - I usually order from B&N
peggywaide - Also: I wanted to say that I took time over the weekend (When I should have been sleeping) and read Cathy Spangler Shadower-its' fabulous
Cel - Good heavens, Cissy....that sucks and could have a big bearing on what does and doesn't hit the NYT lists.
MelanieJ - I looked there, Alice, and they did have a lot of books
Cissy - Yup, Cel!
Sherryl - 1bookstreet.com is good and they don't charge for postage in the US
RondaThompson - Haven't seen it here yet, Peggy. I love her books.
Sherryl - 1bookstreet.com is good and they don't charge for postage in the US
marelou - I have Alice--i like it--it's 20% off and free shipping. (ecampus.com)
Cissy - And they don't report to NYT for what I consider a tacky reason: they're annoyed that NYT has a partnership with BN.com
Alice Chambers - Peggy, were we supposed to be giving books away tonight?
Nanette - has any 1 tried e-books... I saw ad for it i TV guide
MelanieJ - LOL, Cissy
Sherryl - that was not a paid advertisment
Cel - Peggy....I finished SHIELDER the other day and am about 1/2 way thru SHADOWER (both good books).
Genie - I have Nanette
Sherryl - yes, alice....to me
Alice Chambers - LOL.
RondaThompson - LOL, Sherryl
bryony - I'm still hanging out for Shadower. The store couldn't get it in before Christmas.
Cissy - of course, Amazon still sells way more books than BN online...
MelanieJ - I have been reading trash-- sigh-- not quality stuff like romance
Genie - So does Sara
peggywaide - I haven't read Shielder but am going to track it down-I have the next week off-should be writing but....
Nanette - those are on my to buy list < it just keeps getting BIGGER >
PattiL has timed out.
Alice Chambers - Is there a place to put my webpage url on here?
peggywaide - OUr wall mart had Shadower
Genie - Shielder and Shadower were both great
Cissy - yep, Alice - if you just type it in with the http:// it will show up as a clickable URL
Misha - just type it Alice
Nanette - geni - is that a good way to read books?
Cissy - for example, http://www.writerspace.com
Alice Chambers - like http://home.pacbell.net/halice
peggywaide - Oh Alice-I have been so nutso these last few weeks-we can if someone has one- otherwise we'll get back on track in January- I can certainly give away a POtent Charms
Genie - some people think so, it all depends on what you like personally.
Misha - I'm printing the images of the Exhalation of the Popocatepetl (today afternoon) for my Mom
Alice Chambers - Cool. It works.
RondaThompson - I'm reading Susan Grant's The Star King. Now that Christmas is over, maybe I can finish it.
