With Apologies to Nora Charles

So someone brought one of these goofy tests to my attention. It's the 1930s Marital Scale.



Basically, you take a quiz and see where you rank on the 1930s scale of desirable spousity. It takes maybe...four minutes.

A MANTRA FOR MURDER

This is my favorite kind of day. It's raining -- just sprinkling a bit right now -- and I'm kicked back catching up on email and a few other necessary chores. Nancy Drew & The Hardy Boys Season Two is playing on the DVD player -- and I do need to post my thoughts on this favorite TV show of my misspent youth over at Girl Detective one of these days. It's so...different than I remembered.

I finally got to preview the cover…

They're serving champagne brunch at the Alamo

Okay, a little bit of an in-joke. I have to admit it is feeling like back-against-the-wall time. I've got the first (ever so rough) draft of Corpse Pose due to Berkeley at the end of next week, I've done content and line edits on three separate ebook projects (with another round of line edits to go), and I have a short story (does 20,000 words really count as a short story?) due next week.
