I talk about how J.R. Ward's sold-out virtual signing of Lover At Last is good news for M/M romance writers - and SF&F writers, if they would just realize it.

I actually created a new blog this morning, dedicated to pop culture (as opposed to just my writing blog). I put up a short introductory post this morning, and I just posted an analysis of Star Trek seasons, series, and films after crunching various averages based on TV.com's average user ratings. Totally geeky.
