The most awesomly bad SFF Cover in the world.

While I’m not sure I’ll read it, the book trailer is awesome:

Things you can do with books that don’t include reading.

Twilight tattoos… oh my…

Top 10 Geeky Things You Don’t Know About Romance Writers.

Now this sounds like a crime novel (and novelist) even I’d like to read. Plus:

Well, I say, I’ve just read all the cuttings and I’m tired of hearing about this Glasgow crime writer who’s always down-to-earth, feisty, funny, nice, and all the rest of it. She smiles, signs the book, and slides it back.

“To David,” it says. “F*** YOU! Denise Mina.”
