Why all the stuff about spiders? It’s been a slow news cycle in publishing since Christmas.

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    OMG, the spider eating the bird is just wrong and yet I couldn’t stop myself from checking it out and shuddering.

    The only thing I care about the Nook media thingy is if I’m gonna now be allowed to read Kindle books on it. If not, I fail to see how this benefits me. And its ALL about me. :)

    Looks like someone is into “I Fucking Love Science.” She went on a spider binge a few weeks ago and hit on all these spider stories and had several different pics of the peacock spider.
