The chocolatey goodness continues!

If you haven't checked out Brief Encounters Reviews this week, you're in for a huge treat. Not only are there reviews and discussions about the last five Petit Morts books, not only are the girls giving away chocolate prizes just for posting in any of the threads, but each day features a new and fascinating look at chocolate!

What's fun about the reviews is that they are prompting discussions, so rather than having the tone of, "Here is my opinion, and that is all," it feels more like a book club. We authors have been refraining from commenting on the reviews--totally unplanned, but I think it works great for the atmosphere, so no one feels stymied--but we're there in our interview threads to chat.

Petit Morts week will continue on into the weekend at Rainbowebooks.com, where they'll be giving away a copy of Sweets to the Sweet on their Facebook fanpage, and more discounts and freebies on their site! (I'll link it when the sale goes live later today.)

As for me, I'm going out in the field tomorrow to research a yoga center for GhosTV. It's a rough job, but someone's gotta do it. (The introductory email instructed me to not bring a "strong-smelling" lunch. So much for the garlic fish-heads and cabbage I had packed.)

And it's -11 outside here in Wisconsin right now. I hope my car starts on meditation retreat day :(

No garlic fish heads - damn. I can't wait to see what ideas that trip will inspire. Petit Morts at brief Encounters has been a lot of fun. Love the interview questions.

I'm inspired by the introductory email alone :D

Hi J! Am quite enjoying PM week over at Brief Encounters - a nice bunch of peeps and you're right, kind of an intimate little book club of sorts (I'm siriusj over there). Wonderful words about WishInk Well - as there should be.

RE: GhosTV - any timeframe at this point? I want to know when to start re-reading Camp Hell.

AH! I wondered if I knew Sirius under another name.

No official timeframe on GhosTV but it is in beta reads right now, then it will go through official edits and production. It was a huge thing to finish the draft, lemme tellya.

It's been such fun having you and Josh and Sean over for a play date at the blog. :-) I'm really pleased with the discussions we've gotten started and hopefully some new people have found us and will stick around and pipe up with their opinions, challenge us, give us a different perspective and just let us know we're not talking to the ether. :-) Thanks so much for going along with out little plan.

Thank you for inviting us. What a great blog week! I really like the vibe you've got going, and that's one of those things that's kind of like alchemy. You can only control it to a point, and then part of it is luck.

Is it spring yet?

I see it's 6F here now. I nearly shit when I saw -14.

Heat wave! We're at +1 (after starting from -25 this morning) and... it's snowing. Down to -21F tomorrow night.

*goes back in to hibernation mode*

Everyone who blithely said they could survive at -40 over on Brief Encounters knows not of what he speaks.
