Turns out Spellcheck isn’t a perfect editor. Many years ago, I came within a curly hair of turning in a dissertation that contained three references to pubic opinion. Lucky I didn’t muff that one. They would have snatched that degree right out of my hands.
Then there’s my cruise romance, Sea Legs. Even now, it takes all my concentration not to type Seal Legs. I don’t know why I harbor that habit. If there’s an on-off switch, would someone please flipper?
Spellcheck doesn’t care if your characters shutter, or ball their eyes out. Or pour over magazines, peddle their bikes or sleep in a birth. Or if their feet have souls. That’s their yolk to bare.
Nor does it care if they wrap their arms around their girlfriend’s waste. Yeah, that’s sexy. Especially if they’re in the throws of passion.
Those are some of my faves. Please go fourth (or third) in the comment section and share you’re own.
I promised to update my events and books regularly, so here’s what’s new.
In two weeks, I’ll be in Xena Land!!!! The Final Final Xena Convention is at the Burbank Marriott February 20-22, and I’ll be at the Bedazzled table selling books. Please come by and say hello, and feel free to bring from home any books you want signed.
Still working with the graphic artists to get the right cover for my next book, T-Minus Two. Imagine getting the assignment to design a book jacket for “a story about two women competing for a trip to Mars, set entirely in Hawaii.”
My Fall 2015 book, The Touch of a Woman, is now 11,038 words deep. They haven’t had sex yet.
