Most readers of this blog will have noticed the many posts I credit to The Passive Guy (aka PG) and his excellent, free newsletter, which is chock-full of information regarding the publishing industry. Not so many will be aware that my family includes members who are suffering from mental illness: one cousin who suffered from […]
(reblogged from the Misfortune of Knowing)
The constant flow of information about Donald Trump’s scandalous and dysfunctional administration has intensified the calls to remove him from office. But what is the impeachment process, and what will it take to use it against Trump effectively? The process stems from provisions in our Constitution that have long baffled scholars, jurists, and lawmakers: Article […]

Mary Lindsey is a multi award-winning, RITA® nominated author of romance for adults and teens. She lives on an island in the middle of a river. Seriously, she does. When not writing, she wrangles her rowdy pack of three teens, two Cairn Terriers, and one husband.
Inexplicably, her favorite animal is the giant anteater and at one point, she had over 200 “pet” Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches. The roaches are a long story involving three science-crazed kids and a soft spot for rescue animals. The good news is, the “pet” roaches found a home… somewhere else.
With this year’s BEA returning to New York- where it should stay- I went to the site to secure my place in these three days of literary nirvana. My euphoria was short lived when I ran into what can only be described as applying for papers to enter East Germany. Now I know there’s been issues in the past of knuckleheads and lowlifes using the BEA to load up on freebies and pawn them off on eBay and all, so I’ve no problem with them taking steps to curb that bullshit. I get it. But…
Who came up with this shit- Homeland Security?!? My first thought upon seeing all this was “but I already live in the US!!!” I work in the Security fieldand I’ve had less stringent job applications than this!
So now I’m actually sitting her crafting responses to this nonsense, because it’s already to the point of morbid curiousity just to see if I get clearance… I mean, approved- nah, fuck it- clearance!- to attend the damn thing.
Well- looks like the place is up and running again… Guess I’ve got some catching up to do.
Kinda upset with BookExpoAmerica (BEA). They’re back in NYC this year and when I went to check the page about registering, there were some changes.
The big one is you have to APPLY before you can even register. You have to be vetted before you can even give them your hard-earned money! I guess this is a measure to keep out the “riff raff”. It’s always been open to the public, but the last few years have seen a bunch of issue crop up so I guess this is their way of being proactive. It’s like the BEA was a rider attached to Trump’s Muslim Ban…
And the prices have pretty much doubled. A 3-day pass used to be in the $150-$175 range, as you can seen it’s now $300! $400 if you register “late” or onsite during the expo. They’ve kept prices the same for industry professionals, tho.
Looks like I’m gonna be putting in lotsa OT this month.
Nice to be back ’round these parts.

Marry Your Billionaire
A Modern Cinderella
by C. J. Anaya
What happens when a sweet girl and a bad boy meet on a reality TV show? Answer: nothin’ but romance!
Six years ago, Midge Knightly walked away from her trust fund, her Hollywood producer father, and the expectation that she would join the family business. Avoiding handsome playboys with hidden agendas was just an added bonus. Now one semester shy of graduation, she is shocked to discover her scholarship has lost its funding.
Her estranged father is having problems of his own. A contestant on his latest reality TV series has cancelled a week before shooting.
Midge gets her trust fund back if she stands in as a potential marriage candidate for the dating series Marry Your Billionaire. Twenty women competing for one arrogant guy. Not Midge’s cup of tea. Agreeing to this proposition sucks her back into the world she happily broke ties from, but no trust fund equals no college degree.
Brody Prescott, CEO and owner of an online dating company, has recently been pegged a heartless playboy–among other things–by a disgruntled female after a disappointing date. In order to save his company and his reputation as an honest businessman, the billionaire must prove to everyone that he isn’t the naughty, bad boy they believe him to be.
Become the first bachelor on Marry Your Billionaire and hope that one of the contestants holds some potential. So what is he supposed to do when the woman who intrigues him the most wants to be eliminated?
Marry Your Billionaire is a fun, romantic romp set against the backdrop of reality TV, a heartwarming Cinderella fairy tale retelling filled with romance, suspense, comedy, and a little mystery thrown into the mix. Put on your PJ’s, grab some chocolate and popcorn, and settle in for an entertaining love story.
About the Author:
C.J. Anaya is the bestselling author of The Healer Series and Marry Your Billionaire. She also enjoys assisting authors in writing, publishing, and marketing their books with her helpful non-fiction guides on amazon.
She’s a huge fan of The Mindy Project, Hugh Jackman, and binge eating any and all things chocolate. Who isn’t, right?
As a mother of four awesome children, C.J. is usually helping out with homework, fixing dance recital costumes, or delivering her kids to their karate classes so they can learn discipline, respect, and “…kick some serious butt, mom.” She loves writing entertaining reads for everyone to enjoy, and dabbles in singing and songwriting for kicks and giggles. Making out with her deliciously handsome Latin Lover-her hubby-is by far her most favorite extracurricular activity.
I have not read most of the new releases listed (although I always end up one-clicking a bunch as I prepare these posts LOL) and as always I recommend sampling before you buy! It’s a mix of the genres in no particular order. Also the term “new” is generally plus or minus a week or […]
A short time ago Harlequin Teen, the imprint publishing the book, tweeted this statement.
Translation: since none of us in the editing department actually has any non-white friends who could’ve told us better, we really fucked this one up to be damned, so now we’re making her rewrite the entire book to cover all our asses. Peace. One love.
Wonder what all those basement dwelleing jackholes talking smack about black women anyone having issues with the book have to say now?
