I want to offer huge congratulations to all the authors in the Embrace the Romance anthology on achieving New York Times best-seller status. That's a fabulous effort - especially because it's not free, or $.99 cents.
I'm becoming increasingly depressed at how so many authors are tossing their hard work away. Readers just have to sit on their wallets and wait for the next "twenty-something full, brand new books for 99 cents" deals. They're coming out there, thicker and faster, all in the hope of NY Times best-seller status, or attracting new (paying) readers. On that point, I can see some value in having something like a first in series free. I do it myself, with The Iron Admiral: Conspiracy. But sorry, folks, the days of giving away my work are over for me.Writing is too much of a hard slog. Besides, it's not just the writing. We have to PAY for editing, covers, maybe some marketing. It all ends up with a negative balance that is very hard to claw back on other titles.
I had some quibbles, and I don't think I'll be giving much away when I ask what happened to the gunship? But all in all, it was a fun movie with a wonderful heroine. If I was a comics fan I'd be looking forward to seeing WW in future Avengers movies and such.
One of the best bits of dialogue in the film comes when Steve is getting all doubtful about sleeping in close proximity to Diana, who doesn't turn a hair. At one point she says something along the lines of, "You need a man to procreate, but that's not necessary for pleasure." Love it.
