The Link-o-Later

A few links sent in by Bitchery readers for your fun and amusement. We’re not just romance, we’re a random news aggregate too!

In the inverse of, “No, this time I’m telling the truth!” we have James Frey’s new book deal, filed under, “No, this time I am really making ALL of it up! I’m REALLY lying this time!” Bitchery reader DesertWillow sent me a link to this Yahoo:News story about the buzz surrounding Frey’s new deal with HarperCollins: “Bright Shiny Morning,” [will be] a “kaleidoscopic” portrait of modern Los Angeles. His first deal was seven figures, according to the article. Holy Cow.

And, should you be looking for a costume to promote your new book or just collect a crapload of free mini candybars next month, Lucinda Betts is here to help you out. They’re not Storm Troopers – they’re FemTroopers! Seems women have stormed the gender barrier of trooper land, but honestly? Those outfits look a little chafe-y to me.

    I have to just point out that those uniforms have a serious safety design flaw.

    She doesn’t look any different from the rest of them, but may I point out that the Tower of London now has a female Beefeater?  http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/20573184/

    Personally, I’m glad women Star Wars fans no longer have to wear cinnamon buns on the side of our heads or be chained in Jabba’s dungeon to dress in true Star Wars fashion. Of course, the down side is that we have to work for the dark side!

    Or maybe that isn’t so bad…hehehe

    There is no god.

    They’re not Storm Troopers – they’re FemTroopers!

    And unclear on the concept of just what a Stormtrooper is (hello, can we all say clone together?).

    Those stormtrooper costumes might chafe, but my geeky husband tells me if I put up with the pain he’ll make me feel better.

    If they make a femtrooper suit in a 22W 40DD I amd SO there.

    Trust me, it WILL terrify the rebels right off the battlefield.
