Lucinda Betts, Mistress of Websurfing, forwarded me Time Magazine’s 10 Questions for Nora Roberts, wherein readers asked her questions. My fave? How do you react to critics who say romance novels are trashy?
Why, you send them to this website, of course. Heh heh.
And, a link that has nothing at all to do with the previous one, a link from the Daily Mail courtesy of Janice, which features advertisements from the 50’s and 60’s that are breathtaking in their sexism. I find my self staring at the woman who’s getting a rather startling spanking because she didn’t “store-test” her coffee for freshness. What does that mean, exactly? She didn’t fire up a portable percolator in the aisle and covertly crack open a can? That ad is unsettling, too. It’s a mile past “cute” well into “discomforting” territory. Not even the argyle socks help that image out.
That said, I bet a cover artist will harvest that image for a future BDSM cover very very soon.
