Trash Talkin'

You'd think that with the NBA finals behind us the only trash talking going on would be in the presidential race. You'd be wrong.

Back in March I did a blog post bragging about my wife the romance writer being a finalist for the most prestigious award in the romance writing world. The Ritas are awarded by the Romance Writers of America each year at their national conference and are considered the Academy Awards of romantic fiction. While it is indeed an honor just to be nominated, that little golden statuette is highly coveted and the competition is, well...just look at this video of the finalists in the Contemporary Single Title category.





The one with the sword is my wife. My money's on her.

I caught this over at Viki's place and saw your wife and came running over. You two are so made for each other.

Admit it, thats your big long sword, isn't it??

Yeah, anytime a woman...a romance writing woman wields a sword, she's the one to watch.

Actually, her writing is amazing and she so deserves this. I can't wait to see her in SF. :)

Liza, I wish I got to vote too.

MI, yes we are made for each other. And yes. That is my sword. But she is free to wield it anytime she wants. I'll be there to worship soon.

Mal, okay so you like Linux.

Kitty, every chance I get.

Vicki, hopefully I'll get to see you in San Fran. I get in on Friday and will most certainly be at the Ritas Saturday night.
