September 13, 2007 | Me, myself
Welcome to my very first blog on my own blog! Wow!
Of course, the next question is, why have a blog? Well, I’ve got an absolutely gorgeous new website and it needed a place where I could interact more openly with my readers. That’s my primary goal.
I named myself “inveterate romantic” because I do tend to see things that way. I believe in heroes, heroines, and happily ever afters. I’m sure there’s a silver lining to every cloud and an open window whenever a door has been slammed shut, no matter how brutally hard they may be to find or achieve. I promise faithfully to sigh over a first kiss and to weep happily whenever a warrior comes home to his true love.
I adore reading Anne Stuart’s blogs, Notes from the Drama Queen, and she is my goddess of author blogs. Given that bit of fair warning, I thought maybe I should tell you my inner rules of blogging.
Firstly, I have a family, day job, and two editors. I hope to once again be owned by Tibetan Terriers. Much as I adore every one of you and the fact you make my writing possible – other people will grab my time. I promise to blog as often as I can, but not daily.
Secondly, I promise to tell the truth and to be as transparent as possible. I want to start conversations here. If you ask me a question, I will answer it, to the best of my ability. If I cannot answer it, I will say so.
Unfortunately – much as I’d like to pretend otherwise – my ability to say everything isn’t always perfect. Sometimes the muse hasn’t answered your question yet. (Alas, I have no idea what Sean’s son is currently up to, romantically speaking!) Sometimes answering your question would mean exposing too much of my “muse.” In that case, I’ll take refuge in generalities, which are often more useful to more people.
Mostly I plan to talk about my books, my characters, twists and turns along the road to seeing them in print, and similar bookish topics. From time to time, you may also be treated to musings on assorted stuff, which I tend to think of as quirky notions. Be prepared for such oddities.
Since this is my very first blog, I’d love to hear what you’d like me to talk about. Any suggestions?
