• My kind of guy…

    I’m hosting VILLAIN APPRECIATION DAY on the Triskelion Fever and Books loops. It’s a great time so far but you can always join the group and read the archives if you’ve missed it.


    I’m hosting a contest there for anyone who emails me at minx @ minxmalone.com by midnight on 5/30/07 to be entered in a drawing to win a copy of The Djinni when it comes out in June.

    My favorite villains are the entire cast of Ocean’s Eleven. Sexier bank robbers can never be found. Plus, Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Matt Damon in one movie together is enough to overload any girls senses. (My fave character though is Basher. Don Cheadle is a master.)

    So bring it on baby! Who’s your favorite bad boy…


  • The Race is on

    I just finished a short story that took me only a month to write. So my ego has now convinced me I can write another in only two weeks if I focus. Some of the amazing ladies of the Passionate Ink chapter are hosting two Book in a Week (BIAW) challenges coming up in May and I plan to do both. Conference season is almost here and I know from experience the month is July is pretty much shot. SO, I plan to finish up a few things before I leave for the RWA conference this year.

    Wish me luck! What are some of your writing goals?

  • Calling Shonda Rhimes

    So I have a new idol. Shonda Rhimes, the creator of Grey’s Anatomy.

    I always watch Grey’s Anatomy and for me this time is sacred. It’s a mini vacation, a respite for an overworked body, a time when I can be still for more than 5 minutes and be thoroughly entertained the entire time. This is one of my few guilty pleasures in life.

    I actually left work early yesterday, raced home and wolfed down dinner, prepared to spend the next hour on the couch figuring out what the hell is going on with George and Izzie.

    Imagine my surprise when I saw it was a rerun.

    Death, destruction, chaos and mutiny. Why, why, why! Whose idea was it to leave us hanging until April 19th for a new episode?

    But in the midst of my despair I must give out recognition to Shonda Rhimes for her mastery at keeping us all on the edges of our seats, because that is what good entertainment is supposed to do.

    Even if it’s incredibly cruel.
