Jane’s Part 4 for Defamation Delayed

I’ve been too busy to finish my article for Tuesday morning. I would like to say that it is something important like work or family but really, I just spent the weekend reading some really good books and I didn’t spend anytime writing. The article will be posted on Tuesday afternoon, though. It’s just flipped for tomorrow.

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

    LOL, this weekend I had to abandon to “barely even begun” books. At least I didn’t waste too much time with them…

    I read the new J.D. Robb book this weekend… instead of packing and/or working.

    Hmm – a lull in the indomitable whirlwind but Sarah said it first – reading is important.

    You’re going to tell us the names of the good books, right? Otherwise you are being a tease! :)

    Yep, they were Lara Adrian’s Midnight Awakening (clearly the ascending the Ward throne for vampire romance, imo) and Meljean Brook’s Demon Night who was brilliant as always.

    In keeping with the topic, Jane, we your loyal commenters should fill this thread with libelous speculations on the real reason for the delay, ranging from drug deals or sexual affairs to the time it takes to find someone else’s text to plagiarize. By the time you return, our thorough trashing of your personal and professional reputation will have demonstrated the evils of defamation and the importance of anti-defamation laws.

    In the sequel, your successful lawsuits against us will not only make you financially independent for life, but demonstrate how dangerous defamation can be to the defamers, thereby providing a salutary lesson to the readership at large.

    LOL! That sounds like a lot of work on both sides, Pyre. When would we read?

    I blog with my right hand and read with my left. Doesn’t everyone?
