Wednesday Random Thoughts

This morning I was thinking about something I saw that said George Takai is the most followed/influencial celebrity on Facebook. And I remember back during the original Star Trek days when I was madly in love with Walter Koenig (Chekov) and wrote him a fan letter and got a picture back of him, Takai and Nichelle Nichols standing on the transporter.

I didn't care for Sulu back then. Now I wish I still had the photo.

My daughter is in the throes of her first real crush. She doesn't completely understand what she's experiencing and can't accept that it's a crush. So she claims to hate the boy while she subtly stalks him and rearranges her schedule so she can see him.

Since he's three grades ahead of her, he hasn't really noticed her nor will he. But I'm watching her with a lot of love and a little sadness. I think I liked it better when she fell in love with cartoon characters.

I can't decide what to read. We have so many books and so many look good for such different reasons that I'm hit with indecision.

This is the cover of my next book and I'm feeling ambivalent about it. I love the cover but I don't think it says erotic romance. Feedback please????

  2. Yeah, it says hor ror and/or humor to me, at least froma distance. Up close, the woman has more of a sexy vibe.

  3. Yeah, not getting an erotic vibe here at all. He looks very clean cut and is looking straight at the reader - engaging us directly.

    She certainly looks more mysterious (and away from the reader), but I don't see anything connecting them as a couple, erotic or otherwise.

  4. **sigh** I do so love that cover in some ways but no way to keeping it.

    Back to the drawing board.

  5. Perhaps it will work for a different story later... or maybe you can keep parts of it.

    But I'm remembering something I read about it being good for covers to work when they're small, and I don't think that one does. I really had to peer closely to see the woman as not really scary looking. :-(
