Where Personal and Professional Life Collide...

My life in 8 words: Organized chaos, by preference. Exhausting, but never boring

I don't read any romance (save where it winds up intersecting into my genre fiction) and I find this announcement condescending.

Yeah, they're idiots, but any news release that gets you annoyed enough to post black cat pics is a win in my book. Pumba's, too. Go Cat of Thursday. :-)

Can you believe how wee he was, back then? Part of me wishes he'd stayed that way, part of me's very pleased with the mid-sized panther I've got now.

Not to mention the complex physics of simultaneously boundary-pushing and curve-mastering... and I'm sure that, say, Jennifer Crusie's publisher will be surprised to hear they're publishing stupid books.

I didn't have much luck when I tried reading Crusie's "Welcome to Temptation," but her essays on writing and the writing life on her website were funny and insightful.

Maybe try "Agnes and the Hitman" or "Bet Me" instead? "Bet Me" is my favorite, and "Agnes and the Hitman" is one of the Crusie/Mayer collaborations with alternating POVs.

At best, that is really bad press copy from them.
Unimpressed kitten is very handsome!

The problem with trying to draw new readers into a genre, or old readers back into a genre, means explaining how this new imprint makes up for the reasons they didn't read that genre before. I could probably make up equally insulting marketing twitters for SF, fantasy, mystery, etc.
