Here's another from France...



If they'd aired an American version during the Super Bowl, I wonder what people would have said?

Talons: Seize the Hunter by Michelle M. Pillow. (Last story in the 5-story anthology Talons. If you had this one on your wishlist too, it is still 32% off at Amazon.)

This was a futuristic. I wonder if Michelle Pillow has plans for more stories set in this world. I enjoyed the story, but also the setting.

All the cool covers in this series are visible in a line with this tag ... latest read. (Though they will eventually get buried as I'm keeping track of books I read this year. It is part of my New Years' Resolutions.)

Thoughts on Creativity

I blogged about that article the other day that got me thinking about creativity. Here are a few more thoughts...

It is difficult to come up with new ideas when there are over 500 books a week being published. Since no one keeps track of every idea in every book, how would we ever make sure we weren't duplicating something?

A few months back I was watching the Discovery Channel and a show about saber tooth tigers. I can't recall the show's name, but they had great computer animation that brought these creatures to life. I remember the show mentioning that these creatures lived in North America when the first humans made their way over the land bridge.

Afterwards, I got to thinking about possible shapeshifting saber tooth tiger plots. I also remember thinking the idea was fairly unique. I hadn't seen a paranormal romance with a shapeshifting saber tooth tiger yet. But, I was working on other endeavors so I never actually worked on a story, so the idea never went anywhere. …

Talons: Caged Desire by Syndey Somers

Talons: Caged Desire by Sydney Somers. (Fourth story in the 5-story anthology Talons. If you had this one on your wishlist too, it is still 32% off at Amazon.)

Blurb

This story had a vampire heroine to match the eagle-shifting hero. I enjoyed their wit. It was a hot story, but also sweet. Of all the heros in this anthology, he's been the one I've been pulling for the most. If you've read the blurb you know he was locked in a cage for fifty years. If ever a hero needed a loving heroine....

Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Visa

I need a new night shirt, so I was wandering around Amazon.com. I don't think I'll get this one, but it fits my theme. I do love futuristic themed things, and I use my Visa almost as often as my casino comp card. LOL.
