We're calling this event:

Celebration 10000

What's the bounty? I went with a theme of "10."

  4. I usually write military sci-fi, or comic fantasy (no, I don't see the connection either). But my latest WIP has a definite romance angle to it, not quite Romeo and Juliet, but echoes of the Elizabethan-era for sure.

    Dawn- If we're posting hot men can I vote Miles Vorkosigan? I love a man with a brain!

  12. I came over from Lisa's blog. I am just an avid reader but love the development of other worlds.

    Congrats on 10,000 hits.

  13. Ooooh, you'll be over 10,000 before you know it! :) And I really like how you found "TEN" in The Trouble With Demons! What were the other choices? Or did you just want an excuse to include it? (Pretty a-ok by me!) :D

    Um, a book that I really enjoyed lately was Perfect Chemistry, a YA romance. For a slightly older audience, I just finished My Little Red Book, an anthology of first period experiences, hilarious and insightful! :)
