Heaving Bosoms on Hold

If you missed the news, head on over and have a read. Big changes in the online romance review world. Jane from Dear Author has formed her own literary agency and entertainment law firm, and her first act of “business” is to represent the International Consortium of Heroes in their absolutely groundless lawsuit against us. They state that our reproduction of email messages from their internal email loop constitutes copyright infringement, and violates their privacy.

We have documented permission, but alas, the details will have to be discussed at the hearing, as soon as it’s scheduled. In the meantime, we hope the book will be released on time, and that the judge will toss this ridiculous injunction, and the nefarious intent of the completely mean attorney, out on their respective asses.

    I read a lot of legal thrillers and can tell they don’t have a case! They should be happy over the publicity anyhow. Don’t let ‘em get you down!

    I’m beyond stunned. Jane didn’t warn any of us at DA about this and it’s been a complete shock to me. I’m so sorry it’s come to this. I thought we were all such good friends, but I guess it’s true that Jane is just a Mean Grrl (TM). My innocence has been shattered!

    This time you mean girls have gone too far!  And I think there’s a wounded hero or two in this dust-up as well!  Those poor babies over at ICH!  They’re going to need a lot of love from the one woman who understands them, despite their rakish behavior and biting people in the neck after sundown.

    Dammit! I was just reading Dear Author’s companion post and your tweet and I was fooled right up until the “completely mean attorney” part and then I remembered what day it was. I hate this day.

    What has happened to me so far today (and it’s only 8:30am):
    1) White standard poodle dyed green.
    2) Locked upstairs with a spiderweb of rubberbands and a laughing 11 year old.
    3) Assaulted with sillystring
    4) Found water balloons attached to every faucet
    5) Opened silverware drawer and found… nothing
    6) Poured milk on cereal. It was green. and not from age.
    7) Pulled up toiletseat and a firecracker exploded.
    8) Toilet water was green.
    9) Found several cans of catfood in the fridge. It does not belong there.
    10) And now this website. Ugg.

    I hate this day. Except for the revenge part…

    What I’ve done to others so far today:
    1) Put dry dogfood in the cereal bowls and served with green milk to laughing 11-year old and 6-year old.
    2) Replaces SO’s car key with a key that looks just like it but doesn’t work. (Had a lot fun getting it made at Ace, lol.)
    3) Packed birdseed for 11-year old and 6-year old for their school snack.
    4) Now off to call mother and tell her I’m pregnant. Or moving to India.

    I read Dear Author first and thought it was all real!!  I thought oh my goodness they were good friends and now they are going to court!!  I’m gullible and if I hadn’t read the comments I would still think it is real.  Thank goodness the majority of you are quick to sniff out the shenanigans! “-)

    I just have to say it: You bitches have gone to far.

    Absolutely freaking brillant April Fool’s Gag. Maybe you’re best yet.

    Michelle,

    Even I don’t like to live in my house on April Fool’s day. The 11-year old practices jokes like they were a religion. Every year I say I’m going to check myself into a hotel and come back on the 2nd. Maybe one day I’ll do it.

    Last year, I packed dry dog food for the kids’ snack. Not only did the 5-year old eat it, he shared it with his friends! Bad mom!

    You are all goddesses of the day, or at least high priestesses. though I do miss the bunnies from previous years.

    That literary website is way, WAY too well-done and slick . They’re going to get hundreds of submissions.

    Sorry, force of habit, I check/read the Dear Author blog first every day.  :-)

    spamalot : body27                   Uhhh, the neurosurgeon I saw last year told me I had the spine of a 25-year old (I am much older than that, btw) does that count?  ;-)

    LOL Can you imagine the poor court reporter and the phrases she’d have to type?

    That would be the trial of the century! I would sit in just to see what Candy would wear on the stand. All the romance characters sitting in the court room in their various period styles and paranormal get ups. Eve giving Vichous the stink eye.  Lizzy Bennet trying to keep her sister from flirting with Jacob…
