Amarinda minutiae…

Email feedback on the doability of the mile high club is mixed. See yesterday’s blog. Men say yes – definitely possible but they don’t elaborate how and women say ‘no way’ am I having sex in a cramped, smelly toilet cubicle. So, without positive proof – and I’m not flying anywhere until March - I’m going to have to call mile high clubbing it unlikely. Sorry boys, I have to go with my fellow women on this. Comfort and nice smells matter and I have to wonder how many women would have sex in what equates to a sardine can.

‘Been editing and revising all day. That’s always scads of fun – not – but it must be done “so shut and do it” I say. But – I did pick up a contract on a vamp book…always good to know I don’t suck completely.

The bathroom reno dudes have been here – on and off – renovating. I haven’t really seen them as they arrive when I’m at work and have buggered off by the time I get home. Today I saw them. Well, I glanced, smiled and chatted some before going back to my editing. Actually, when you think about it, it’s the perfect relationship. Do what I want and I can choose to see you or not. Excellent stuff.

I made a decision to go to Tassie (Tasmania) in July. Why? Because I Can. It also gives me a chance to drop in on my long suffering, stoic editor for the day. So the monsoonal heat of Darwin in March and the freezing cold of Hobart in winter. I do love extremes…

‘Got a funny review… I actually quite enjoyed it and passed it on to several friends. Basically the reviewer hated the book and the characters and it was all just wrong, wrong, wrong. She gave me 3 out of 5. Hmmm…pretty good for getting it all wrong. I don’t stress out of reviews. They’re just opinion.

So, it’s Sunday once more in Oz and its back to revising for me. Monday I get my foot tattoo. I’m looking forward to it. Am I planning another one? Why, yes, I am….
Be an Amarinda book

Good luck with the tat. And where are you planning the next one.
You get to see H. Wow, that is cool.
I guess I better read the next blog to find out mile high references. Toilet? Eww.

Congrats on the vamp sale. How many vamps is this now? Love vamp books.

Congrats on the sale! Mile high...most of the ones I've "read" about happened in first class in the middle of the night. Can't say that doing it in the toilet really sounds sexy.

Or the other one's I've read about were in private planes...
