Links: Bras, Jennifer Crusie, & Back in Black

Workspace with computer, journal, books, coffee, and glasses.It’s time for Wednesday Links! Happy Easter! Happy Passover! And Happy Anything In Between! Here are some links from around the internet. We hope you’re having a great week!

In the D.C. area? There are two great events coming up!

Join the Washington Romance Writers at Books-a-Million at the Town Mall of Westminster for a huge book signing on April 21! Authors include Beverly Jenkins, Sylvia Day, Sally MacKenzie, and others!

On April 19 at Hooray for Books in Alexandria, VA, Julie James will be celebrating the launch of That Thing Above Love with our very own Sarah Wendell!

Both events are free!

Big thanks to Redheadedgirl for this link! Lingerie_addict on Twitter has compiled a guide to bra boutiques in the US that carry sizes up to an N cup!

Thanks to Reader Jenny for sending us this interview with Jennifer Crusie from The Chronicle of Higher Education. She brought attention to how Crusie chose her pen name:

I started with Silhouette/Harlequin and they made you take a pseudonym so they could own it when you left. Also I was teaching high-school English and I didn’t want my students reading my sex scenes aloud from the back of the classroom. I took my grandmother’s maiden name, which was dumb because nobody can spell it. On the other hand, nobody else uses it and it starts with “C” which means I’m usually at the top of the book rack, right about eye level. These things matter.

We all seem to be Crusie fans here! Did you learn anything new about her in the interview?

USB Wall Outlet Adaptors!

What do we want? More USB ports! Where do we want them? EVERYWHERE!

Sarah: I had originally scheduled a Live Scream for this weekend, but Forces Beyond My Control have required that I reschedule. I’m sorry! I’ll post the date of the next Live Scream asap – and if you have requests or recommendations or requests FOR recommendations, you can always email me. Thanks!

To prep for the weekend, may I introduce to Wackids! This French trio of musicians covers iconic rock songs using miniature, kids’ instruments. They even perform live shows!

Don’t forget to share what super cool things you’ve seen, read, or listened to this week! And if you have anything you think we’d like to post on a future Wednesday Links, send it my way!

    That’s a great CHE article. I’ve been reading Jenny Crusie’s “Argh” blog for about a year now and love her more than ever. She is doing a read-along as she writes a new book and the discussions of her process are FASCINATING.

    Thanks for the bra website rec! Those of us who are, ahem, well-endowed don’t always have an easy time of it trying to find bras that fit, never mind anything attractive.

    Also, I inhaled Twist by Kylie Scott when it came out yesterday. I have a new book boyfriend…

    There’s a shop in Los Angeles on Sawtelle and Santa Monica Blvd called “Double D’s” for women D cup and up. My “Pocket Venus” friend loves it.

    Happy Passover Sarah, how fortunate to be spending the evening with Julie James. I’m envious to be sure!

  5. Frances says:

    Thank you for the link to the Jennifer Crusie interview. She sounds like a terrific person ( and her books are great too).
    Thank you also Chacha1 for the info re her blog site. I was under the impression she had stopped writing but your comments give me hope.
    Sarah, I am jealous of you and the lucky readers who can attend the launching of Julie James new book. Unfortunately it’s too long a commute from Australia for me. It has been a long wait for this book .I hope there will be a podcast of your discussion so we can all share in.

    1: Pro-tip to any romance novel fans: DON’T LIVE IN KENTUCKY! None of the fun author stuff ever comes here.

    2: Duuuuude. Those cord keepers are a godsend! Cords are the devil and I hate seeing mine. I also recommend the Bluelounge CableBox on Amazon. They come in 2 sizes and they’re basically little boxes that hold power strips so your cord group doesn’t look like a cluster fuck.

    3. I have nothing to say for three but I like lists and two entries does not make a list.

  7. Jennifer says:

    I usually read this in Melbourne, Australia but this morning I am sitting in the airport in Los Angeles waiting for a connecting flight to New York. I will also be visiting Washington DC but unfortunately will miss the event with Sarah and Julie James.

  8. Trix says:

    The ’80s New York band Pianosaurus used to play on toy instruments too , they rocked surprisingly hard. (I think they smashed their stuff–Muppet Babies drum kit and all–at the end of shows a la the Who.) I think there’s some YouTubery, and definitely snap up a recording if you see one around…

  9. Amy S. says:

    @jacqueline I don’t know what you are talking about. There is an event in Lexington called Authors in the Bluegrass next weekend. They have it every year because I keep thinking about going to it.

    Thanks for the bra link! Also some good bra reviews here
