Megan Hart GuestBlog: Love Leads 2 Love

CONTEST TODAY: One LCB wins a copy of Megan's fab new "Stranger" courtesy of Megs.

From Michelle: Megan Hart is an extraordinary writer. Her erotic novel, "Dirty" (an RBTB Year's Best winner) is on my short list of best eroms evah. Also, it's one of the most memorable novels I've read. Do check out anything MH, especially her newest, "Stranger." Please give Megan your warmest, "Oh, I so know what you mean!" Bella buongiorno...
From Megan: I just got home from one of the best weekends of my life.

I’ve been to the Romantic Times Convention (RT) and do I ever have a great time there. And don’t get me wrong, Iam a fan of other authors! But when I’m at RT, I’m on the other side of the table, so to speak. I’m there to work! So RT’s fun but nothing like my first fan con – Creation Entertainment’s Salute to Supernatural, held this past weekend. I had an amazing, exciting, entirely entertaining time. It was something else, to be immersed in a total “fan” environment, meeting people who’ve been on the show, talking with other fans, hanging out with my friends. I can honestly say I haven’t ever had an experience that even came close to it.

Not unsurprisingly, the moments I found most memorable were not during the q and a’s with the actors or the photo ops, but in the special, unexpected moments when I got to actually speak to these people about what they do – and surprise of surprises, most of them do some sort of writing.

Wow.

To listen to actor Jim Beaver say “writing is hard” was no light-bulb moment for me. I know that. But to hear someone else say it made me smile and nod. To hear one of my favorite musicians, Jason Manns, say that his songs aren’t ever really “finished” spoke to me as an author who knows the book does have to end, but when? To have the chance to talk with Richard Speight, Jr. about his screenwriting (something I’d like to do) added layers to the weekend that went beyond my fan-girl squeeing over a television show.

It made me love what I do even more.

Being a fan of something – loving something – constantly brings me to new places, provides me with new ideas and inspiration. Being a fan helps me dip deep into my creative well, whether it’s my love of a musician, an author, an actor, or a television show, because what I’ve found is, love leads to love. When I give myself up to something I enjoy, I always find a way to use that emotion in my writing.

Love leads to love.

Tell me what you love! I’ll draw one winner today from all the comments and send you a signed copy of "Stranger," my latest release from Spice. Hopefully, you’ll love it and become a fan!

Thanks to all the Bellas and Michelle for having me here today!

Hi Megan! Hi Bellas!

Oh, fan cons, I've been to a few in my time and I've always loved them... Originally, I used to go to Trek cons back in the day, then general media cons for sci fi, and most recently Buffy cons, mainly to get a chance to meet one of my major crushes of recent years, James Marsters. I did meet the guy, and he was lovely, and lived up to all my expectations, but I also met loads of wonderful fans and friends there too.

The things I mostly love now are cop shows, and my top faves are Numb3rs and Law & Order Criminal Intent... Are there any fan cons for shows like these? Not here in the UK, I guess... So I'm reduced to lusting from a far after delicious David Krumholtz [Charlie Eppes] and Vincent D'Onofrio [Bobby Goren]. :)

[Oh, and putting their lookalikes in my books! LOL]

I read Dirty fairly recently, and thought it was amazing! So awesomely 'real' and compelling. I've also read Layover and Reason Enough, which were fantastic shorter reads. I've now got Stranger and several others of yours [novels & Briefs] on my virtual TBR pile on my Palm T3, so I'm really looking forward to those too!

ps. I always feel we are sister writers, in a small way, because we've both written 'Stranger' books... hope you don't mind? :)

Stacy~ said...

Hi Megan! I had the pleasure of meeting you at Lori Foster's & Dianne Castell's event last summer, and I'm definitely a fan of your books. "Dirty" was one of those stories that was so unexpectedly moving, and very lovely. Michelle & I were talking about you recently and she said you are in a whole other spectrum, so above a lot of what's out there, and I totally agree. Not everyone could handle the subject matter in such a sensitive, coherent way. Your stories are just incredible.

Wow, I recently became a fan of "Supernatural", having caught the first 2 seasons on DVD. I so want to go to their convention when it hits Chicago, but I don't have anyone to go with...Michelle?

Megan Hart said...

Hi, Portia! I have never watched Buffy though I *know* I would love it! What was meeting your crush like?

Maybe we need to make a "stranger story" fan con... ;) We could invite our inspirations to come! And hello, tax deductible!

Hi, Stacy! The Lori Foster event is a great one, isn't it? Talk about getting to hang around with people who love the stuff you love! Go to the convention! It will be great! Plus, I think the two main stars are scheduled to be there...?

Tez Miller said...

Aw :-) This post made me want to cuddle up and hug the world - and I'm not an affectionate lass. So glad to hear that all went well :-)

TV-wise, I adore Family Guy and American Dad!. Most of my blogger pals seem obsessed with the works of Joss Whedon, but Seth MacFarlane is clearly my TV god :-)

But I can't seem to find a real passion for things in life, which is kind of emo. Must do some more pondering/exploring...

Thanks for sharing your experience, and have a lovely day! :-)

Manda said...

Hi Megan, I've got a friend who adores Supernatural. I wonder if she knows about this conference...

Portia, I am SO there with you if there is ever a L&O Criminal Intent conference. Goren is my favorite TV detective EVAH! D'Onofrio just gives such a multilayered performance on that show. I love it.

Carolyn said...

I love your work. I was blown away by Dirty and Broken and am working my way through everything else you've written.

I once surprised my sister by taking her to a Highlander convention for her birthday, which that year was within walking distance of where I lived in San Francisco. She's a huge Highlander fan, so when I realized the convention was so close, of course I got tickets. We both had a blast. It was really really fun. We got Adrian Paul's autograph and listened to him speak about his career and listened to lots of presentations and demos. Loads and loads of fun.

I loved finding out about the perfect birthday gift for my sister and managing to keep my mouth shut about it until we walked into the convention. It was a great moment.

Laurie D. said...

Hey Megan and Michelle!

Wow, you really enjoyed every aspect of the con, didn't you? I don't typically watch huge quantities of television, but am a hockey fan - with the regular season winding down, it's getting very exciting!

Will we see you again at Lori Foster's get together? I loved visiting with you there last year - after adoring you from afar for oh so many years!

Have a great day!

Megan Hart said...

Manda -- if she doesn't know, you should tell her. ;)

Carolyn -- Thanks for the compliments, I appreciate it! I never watched Highlander but I always thought I'd like it. what a great gift for your sis!

Laurie D! -- I won't be at the LF get together this year. :( But I'll be at RT! And haha, you *have* adored me for a long time -- and it's been mutual.

Cathy M said...

Hi Megan, I've never been to a fan-com, and it sounds like you had a blast. Always been a Josh Whedon/Buffy girl, plus I never miss an episode of Supernatural or an old West Wing rerun.

Lauren Dane said...

I have Stranger already so don't enter me into contest - just wanted to stop over and say hey!

I'm a huge fangirl - I love Battlestar Galactica and most Joss Wheedon stuff (Firefly and Buffy most specifically)

I'm probably more a fangirl for music than anything else though - PJ Harvey and Pearl Jam being my big loves but I have so many others (if I saw karen o I might swoon)

Portia Da Costa said...

"What was meeting your crush like?"

Megan, he was mazing! Awesome! It sort of went by in a blur each time I met him, but there was always this sense of him being a very genuine and gentlemanly bloke as well has having drop dead 'star quality' and sex appeal that just took your breath away. I gave him some of my books, and though I can't remember the precise words now, he said he'd be sure to read them, and there was a twinkle in his eye because he knew they were erotica. LOL I don't know if he ever has read them, but the fact he said he would gave me a lovely golden moment.

Wow, a fan con of all our 'inspirations'... I'm not sure I'd survive it! The inspiration for my 'The Stranger' is Paul McGann, as he appeared, very, very briefly, as Doctor Who, in the early 90s. I even duplicated his costume in the book too... that's how much of a fan I was/is!

Portia Da Costa said...

that would be 'amazing'! I came over all unnecessary just thinking about JM again... he's a crush that'll never really fade. :)

scottsgal said...

Never been to a fan-con either and not a huge TV watcher except Ghost Hunters which I'm a bit obsessed over. It's fun meeting a crush - luckily I've met a few of mine but Kenny Chesney had to be my fave over several encounters. Looking forward to reading your book.

LeeAnn said...

Wow it sounds like you had tons of fun! I’ve never been to a fan-con. I did go to the book signing for RWA last year and was aww struck lol. There were just so many authors in such a small room (ok so the room was huge but it was packed) and I got to meet Nora Roberts :o)

Emily S. said...

Hey Bellas!

Megan your books sounds great! I can't wait to read it and some of your others. I've never been to a fan-con or book signing but it sounds like a lot of fun. I'm a big fan of Nora Roberts too LeeAnn. :-)I also love watching Supernatural, never miss an episode. I haven't watched any of the older seasons of Doctor Who but I am a big fan from the recent seasons, so sad that they aren't starting up again until next year. I have to survive with reruns of my fav crazy alien Doctor. ;-)

Have a great day everyone! Ciao!

Marcy said...

Hi Megan!

I'm a big fan of your writing ever since your online read on eHarlequin. The comments there guided me to DIRTY, TEMPTED, and my favorite so far, BROKEN. While I love that the books are sizzling...what I adore is the way you're able to capture the emotions. You make me sob and LOL. I can't wait to read STRANGER!

Megan Hart said...

Hey, Cathy M, thanks for stopping by!

Portia: mmmm...I'll tell ya -- I'm pretty sure if I ever met someone I *really* had a crush on, it would be bad. Very, very bad. I'd probably implode.

LD-- I'm a witness to you seeing Eddie Vedder in person and not freaking out!

Scottsgal -- did you geek out over your crush or were you all cool and stuff? 'Cuz...I pretty much dropped my basket. Actually, it wasn't because of a "crush" exactly, more like...admiration.

LeeAnn -- big signings like that are amazing and overwhelming. You run out of hands to carry all the books! And meeting authors you love in person is sooooo gratifying. I like meeting anyone in person whose work I admire.

Emily S -- I'm now a fan of fan cons!

Marcy -- thank you so much! That's so truly kind.

Michelle Buonfiglio said...

Buona sera, Bellas! Hullo, Megan! What a delight having you here! I meant to post a pic of you with your Man Huntin Hat on from last year's RT, but I couldn't fit it in. If'n anybody wants'ta see it, check out the FOB links in the sidebar. Sorry I'm late to the ball here, but had some important kid stuff crop up.

Portia: I came over all unnecessary
Darling, of all the delightful Britishisms you've ever layed on us here, that may be my favorite. I think I know what you're saying, but could you plese translate so I can use it in convo sometime?

Tez: Can I use your avvie quote as the sub-title to RBTB? It used to be 'Only the Good Stuff," but I think yours gets across the sentiment better. You know, at times I share your lack of passion for stuff, and it may come from developing cynicism. But I'm not so sure it doesn't mean the joy's not still hanging somewhere. I mean, you are hanging on a romance blog. What I really like is how you told me so much about you while you told me you're not crazy about too much. Clever.

Michelle Buonfiglio said...

Stace, I'm so there with you if you're going. It'd be my first (non romance) fan con. I actually just was trading emails with Brenda Novak's hard-working assistant about the Auction. She's taking her son to the Supernatural con and says I absolutely have to watch the show -- but w/ the lights on!

Hiya, Manda! Thanks for the facebook help! Um, when Portia talks about layering and D'Onofrio, she's not exactly talking about his on-cam performance. It's more horizontal layering, and...

YES!!! Everyone MUST go to LORI FOSTER's and DIANE CASTELL's Reader/Author get-together. A whole buncha Bellas'll be there, and I'll try to organize a get-together for us Sat night after the scheduled events. It is one of the best romfan cons because it's intimate, low key and romance-centric; It's about the books and talking romance and meeting authors and other readers to talk romance and books and authors...

Michelle Buonfiglio said...

Carolyn, you hit that out of the ballpark! gawd, how many times does that happen in a lifetime?! Good on you. :)

Hey, Laurie D!!! Have you ever met a fave hockey player? They're just so big...

Oooh, Cathy, West Wing. Don't you just get excited when the theme song starts?

Hi, Lauren! Thanks for writing your own marvy books! So we'll place you firmly in the Wheedon is Gawd column...

scottsgal, when you say "over several encounters" with Kenny Chesney, I'm hoping you don't mean you've been skulking around and following him! I think that's illegal! Here's a shawkah: I don't know Ghost Hunters. Is that new? [oh, stop, everyone]

omg, leeann, isn't that signing a zoo! Was it like meeting a goddess when you met nora?

Michelle Buonfiglio said...

Ciao, Emily! You're in the right place as a DR Who fan, cause our Portia is a total Who maniac. :) Glad you stopped by.

Hi, Marcy! Those are the things that drew me to Megan's novels, too. I'd not read something in romance that was so daring or "authentic" in the way it dealt with women and sexuality, especially in an erotic romance line. There was a representation of reality and fantasy, which was so refreshing, because it answered for me the questions that always come up for the realist in me when I read erom, the woman in me who has to suspend disbelief. It was satisfying having all the issues given a nod. and hte range of emotions is the central attraction, not the sex, which is an attractionin itself.

Michelle Buonfiglio said...

So, can I tell you my fangirl story? I'm reading an ARC of Jacquie D'Allessandro's next Madness in Mayfair book and notice in the acknowledgements she gives a nod to her critique crew. the crew lists the name of this author i kinda worship. I don't know if you've ever heard me mention her name; it's Old School crown princess

Marsha Canham.

Now, I've been trying to track her down for years on/off cause she's on my "who'd you like to iview you havn'" list. So I write Jacquie. And a few days ago, voila! A note from Madame Canham.

I had to rewrite my email response, like, eight times so I didn't come off as a complete stalker fangirl.

Hopefully, I'll have a fun feature interview with Marsha, Marsha, Marsha in the near future.

But don't think that means you'll never have to hear me worship her again. I mean, do you know how many times I have to hear, "Oh, Roarke is so wonderful, etc, etc, etc..."

Megan Hart said...

LOL, Michelle, I love your fangirl story!

orannia said...

Morning Michelle & Bellas and welcome Megan!

Megan - I have both Dirty and Broken on my TBR list. I've heard so many good things about them and I'm really looking forward to reading them :) And I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for Stranger!

As for what I love...I actually don't think I can name anything :( I suppose Love is so intense; to feel it you need to relinquish control of your heart and soul. And I'm too much of a self-control freak for that! I guess what I should be saying (trying to be positive :) is that I don't love anything...YET! It's something I have to..I guess give myself permission to do...if that makes sense :)

All the best with the release of Stranger!

laurinwittig said...

Hey Megan, *waving*

We met a looong time ago at NJRW. I don't read a lot of rom erotica but loved Dirty and Broken so now I get to be a fan girl. Your books are wonderfully complex with great characters and the erotic elements are woven into the story seamlessly. Love them!

Any chance the new one is available on the Kindle?

You asked what we love -- I love it when my family loads up in the car and heads out on our annual summer trek to the boonies of Maine. As the kids get older (darling daughter is in college these days!) this time together becomes more precious.

*Waving at Michelle, too!*

Megan Hart said...

Orannia -- I hope you enjoy Dirty and Broken!

Lauren W -- I remember you, of course! ;) Thanks for being a fangirl. Haha, that makes me laugh! Hmm, Stranger available for the Kindle...I think it might be!

Kristina Cook/Kristi Astor said...

Hi, Megan--when I first signed a contract with Harlequin Spice, I picked up Broken to "educate" myself on the imprint, and was totally blown away. I LOVED Broken!

Anyway, stuff I love...well, I'm a huge Twilight fan (yeah, laugh all you want!) and I keep thinking about going to one of the TwiCons (put on by the same company that did the Supernatural fan-con). Maybe someday!

I love the TV show LOST--give me a LOST fan-con, and I'd be there in an instant (especially if Josh Holloway and Naveen Andrews were there!).

I'm a big fan of the TV show The Office, too. I love that show!

photoquest said...

I love to visit coastal places, I love and the abviaunce of the area.

I love a stormy night when it's time to go to bed!

Ali said...

Hi, Megan *bg*
omg, it sounds like you had a fabulous time at the convention :)
I love talking romance books, so I always look forward to the next booksigning or convention... which for me will be Lora Leigh's RAW weekend *g*
I had to let my cousin know you were here because she absolutely loves your books *bg*. I got her addicted and now she's always wanting your next release *bg* For Valentines I bought her the anthology you were in, A Red Hot Valentine's Day... unfortunately, I procrastinate and still haven't given it to her, lol. Needless to say, she's not happy with me, lol.

Buffie said...

Hey Michelle and Megan! I have to be totally honest and say that I have not read any of your works, but I do plan on changing that really soon! Your books look and sound just fabulous!

Michelle -- I totally understand about Marsha Canham. She is unbelievable! Love her stuff! And she is such a sweet woman. Boy can she cook too! She has some wonderful recipes. Are you enjoying Jacquie's book? I absolutely loved it. I think Logan's story is the best one!

Regarding the things that I love, here are a few random things -- scrapbooking, photography, red velvet cake, new tv shows like Castle and Lie To Me, finding new-me-authors, and Facebook (yep, I said it!). Today I am really loving all the attention. I have a personal chef (my mother-in-law) coming tonight to make dinner for me. It's my birthday and she loves spoiling me!

LeeAnn said...

LOL Michelle yes it was kind of like meeting a goddess, because the woman before me waited in line to take a picture with Nora and then presented her with a gift LOL. It was such a pretty necklace too.

Portia Da Costa said...

I came over all unnecessary just thinking about JM again

In this context it means I suddenly went all fluffy and girly and crushly and couldn't think straight... LOL

But it's one of those multi purpose expressions that can be used in a variety of situations. ;)

Re. the Doctor Who thing... well, I have to admit I'm passionate... but *only* about Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor! There's just something about his voice and his knowing/angelic face... LOL

Emily S. said...

I love the Doctor, he's just so crazy...haha The only thing I have seen Paul McGann in is Queen of the Damned, but he was one of my fav characters in that movie :-)

The only famous person I've met was Tim Curry and I totally babbled about nothing but he was really nice about it. haha I was a bit star struck.

I love red velvet cake too! I love to bake. My fav thing to bake are cream scones, so yummy with jam!

Portia Da Costa said...

Paul is in Queen of the Damned? Oh, I must get that movie...

Cake? Cream scones and jam? Oooh, now I'm so hungry!!!! :)

Michelle Buonfiglio said...

Oh! Now I know what I love cause all you foodies are reminding me! I LOVE to eat! And I LOVE coca cola. But [cover your ears Stacy] the ice MUST be added after the soda, unless you're at McDonald's, which mixes the Best Coke on the Planet.

and, ok, I love RWA and seeing friends there. and really love making friends here, no matter where 'here' is for us.

And I love raunchy hard rock.

Manda said...

OMG, Michelle! McDonald's DOES mix the best Coke on the planet!!! I think it's because they keep it cold and then put it over ice, which makes it doubly cold and yummy! I knew I loved you for a reason!

Also, tell me more about this Vincent D'Onofrio layering...I must know all!

Amy C said...

Hi Megan! I loved Stranger. It was one heck of an impacting story. I also read An Exaltation of Larks. Different but very good, Thank you! And I've read two of your Spice Briefs. I have Broken waiting to be read and plan on ordering Dirty :).You're writing is fabulous and I'm glad I finally purchased and read Stranger after reading friends' reviews saying how wonderful and amazing it was.

orannia said...

Re. the Doctor Who thing... well, I have to admit I'm passionate... but *only* about Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor!

The only thing I have seen Paul McGann in is Hornblower, and I have to admit to being too busy drooling over Ioan Gruffud to watch Paul that much, although he was good :)

I liked Paul Davidson's Doctor, but that's because Paul Davidson played Tristan in the TV version of All Creatures Great and Small, which is one of my favourite books :)

Michelle Buonfiglio said...

Hi, Orannia! You know, i think I need to do a blog on shows we love that we've never seen. HHornblower's def on my list! And, isn't there a saying, 'love is love's delight?" That seems apropos of your comment. or maybe not.

Manda, you've gotta ask Portia about her Vincenzo obsession. But when I say Portia and layering, I mean it starts with one layer of Vincenzo, another of Portia (oh, and perhaps another of Charlie Epps?) and so on...

Portia Da Costa said...

and, ok, I love RWA and seeing friends there.

Sob, I can't go this year... :(

Also, tell me more about this Vincent D'Onofrio layering...I must know all!

Oooh, I adore Vincenzo, as many Bellas know... and I kinda sorta put him in several of my books [under assumed names and only his physical presence...] as the only way I was likely to get close to him... know what I mean? ;)

Portia Da Costa said...

But when I say Portia and layering, I mean it starts with one layer of Vincenzo, another of Portia (oh, and perhaps another of Charlie Epps?) and so on...

Now that's what I call a sammich!!!!

Michelle Buonfiglio said...

Ali, it's the thought that counts! You'll get her the gift eventually...

Buffie, you're a lucky girl. Glad you're with me on the Marsha fan club.

ah, photoquest, very eloquent. Storms are wonderful. I miss the lovely ones back in MN and the noreasters back in Boston... I think storms are best when it's cold, too.

Kristina, nobody here would dare laugh at your Twilight obsession. Now, if it were a Nick Sparks addiction, all bets would be off...The Office is really funny. That reminds me; I love Jon Stewart.

Hiya, Lauren!!! While the idea of my whole family piling in the car for a long trip is anything but precious, I totally believe you. I love to hear someone speak of enjoying time with their family. Glad to see you round the place!!!

Michelle Buonfiglio said...

You know, I'm not sure I've ever met a crush or a male star I had a crush on. I've told my Mark Hamill story before. But it would have been much better if it were harrison ford chasing me through the lobby at Disney World. I liked Han better than Luke.

Michelle Buonfiglio said...

As they sometimes say in the states, Portia, 'Them's good eats!"

Willow said...

Man, I wish I could go to conventions. Sadly they're usually to far away or too expensive for me to attend :( Curses to living in the middle of nowhere! lol

I think the television show that I love the most is Ghost Hunters. Just the way that they try and debunk hauntings rather than just accepting that everything is supernatural is really refreshing in that type of show.

Megan Hart said...

Kristina: wow, thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed Broken! When's your book coming out from Spice?

photoquest: I love stormy nights too.

Ali: haha, I think I must love your cousin! ;) And you, for feeding her addiction.

Buffie: I'm with you on Facebook. I don't want to love it, but I do.

Emily S: I'm green with envy. I love Tim Curry!

Michelle B: What, exactly, is "raunchy" hard rock? What makes it raunchier than regular hard rock? Is there a difference? And Mark Hamill chased you in Disney World!?!

Amy C: I'm glad you liked Stranger and that you could get through Exaltation (first book and all..I'm sure it was VERY "different! LOL!)
'

Willow: well, this was my first one because I could drive to it, so I hear ya about most of them being too far away...!

M

Amy C said...

Willow, I happen to see you like the Ghost Hunters! My husband loves that show. Some of the guys are going to be doing some kind of conference at this place called Lily Dale this summer. It's a psychic community a few hours drive from me. He wants to go if he has the time off. I hope he does. He'd love to meet those guys!

Emily S. said...

Megan - I went to see Spamalot in London where Tim Curry played King Arthur for a little bit, it was amazing! He signed my program and took a picture with my friends and I. It was so cool to meet him.

I love watching Ghost Hunters too! Last year I lived in the ground level of my college dorm, called the "Dungeon" haha and I would freak out my friend who's terrified of ghosts, bc I would watch the show in the dark and late at night. Personally I think you can see things better that way since they're in the dark as well plus its a more fitting environment.

amy*skf said...

Megan, I am an idiot, because I haven't read any of your books yet--and I know I would adore them. So I'm gonna change that quickly.

Love leads to love is such a great line and so true. I heard a singer songwriter once say the thing that keeps him fresh is the fact that above all else he is a music fan. It spoke to me--because I am a writer, but mostly because I love reading.

And Portia, I'd also like to use "crushly."

ev said...

I love the Unknown. I am so excited about this trip I am taking in 3 days that I can barely sleep. I can't wait to see what adventures I have.

thank goodness for Hulu so I can keep up with my tv shows though!!

Jane said...

Hi Megan,
I just read "Dirty" and I absolutely loved it. I picked up the book knowing this wasn't my usual kind of read, but I was blown away by how much I enjoyed it. I love hanging out with family and friends and spending time reading and listening to music. I love to browse books and read magazines at the bookstore.

Megan Hart said...

Emily S: GREEEEN WITH ENVY!!!

amy*skf: I hope you enjoy them, and thanks in advance for reading them. :)

ev: have fun!

Jane: thank you so much. ;)

You know the saying, "do what you love and the money will follow"? Well, I can't say money is following but I'm having the time of my life as I spend time reading and going online and into websites devoted to books. Such good things are happening and I'm happy. So my loves include:
reading, books, hockey, the internet, oh, and the authors that make it all possible.

I enjoy your books, Megan!

LizeeS said...

Good almost-afternoon Bellas,
Megan, I'm in Amy's "idiot" camp for not yet having picked up your books -- but I, too, will remedy that.

This is what I've always loved about RBTB -- where else on earth (other than the fancons) can someone my age gush about having a crush on anyone? It's just so dang cool.

I'm so totally in the Dr. Who fan camp. I've been watching it since it first showed up in the US so many years ago I can't count. A Dr. Who fan conference is the only one I've ever attended -- I met Colin Baker (#6) and Patrick Troughten (#2) and they were stunning in person (yes, even PT who was well into his 70s then).

I loved Peter Davison too -- and also because of Tristan on ACG&S. But my fave was the odd-looking Tom Baker -- there was just something about his personality ... And I kind of got into the newest Doctor--David Tennant; so sad he's leaving. Paul McGann has that sort of Alan Rickman-ish appeal--speaking of...

I have a huge thing for Adrian Paul and was so sad I couldn't make it to RT when he was there (what I wouldn't have given to have pulled a Michelle and read to ADRIAN in bed.)

I also have to admit to a new crush on HGTV's Carter Oosterhouse -- don't know if anyone else geeks out to that channel, but Carter Can (his show) do anything in my fantasies!

Fun topic!! Thanks Megan!
